The mask is a full size, wearable, replica mask based on the 8-bit Friday the 13th Video Game for the NES. It will come packaged in an NES themed box, but pics of that have not yet been released. Look for the mask in November.

Dawn of the Dead Figma Flyboy 002

The Good Smile Company has released some new photos for their upcoming Figma Dawn of the Dead Zombie Stephen “Flyboy” Andrews Figure. The new images showcase the finished figure, the packaging and some new uses for the effects pieces. It includes blood splatter effects, a gun, two Stephen heads and a Machete Zombie head.

After a horrific gun fight with a group of Bikers, Stephen is too injured to fully escape the teeth of a few zombies. The figure depicts Flyboy in all his zombie glory. It includes thee different heads, one of which portrays the iconic “Machete Zombie” that was killed by Tom Savini’s biker character “Blades“. It will also include a blood splatter effect, a pistol, a machete and a figure stand.

The Figma Dawn of the Dead Stephen “Flyboy” Andrews Figure is scheduled for release, in Japan, this week. Look for online retailers to get them in stock soon after. The price is 4,400 Yen plus tax (about $42 USD). Check out the new photos after the jump.

 

Science Fiction Mystery Minis 2

Funko has released images of a series of upcoming Science Fiction Mystery Minis. The blind boxed series looks to collect some of the most iconic characters from sci-fi movies throughout history. Included are:

  • Metaluna Mutant
  • Robocop
  • Spock
  • Classic Predator – Standard, Bloody and Translucent
  • ET
  • The Rocketeer
  • Alien Xenomorph – Standard and Metallic
  • Captain Malcolm Reynolds
  • Judge Dredd
  • Robby The Robot
  • Tron – Standard and Glow-In-The-Dark
  • Jayne Cobb
  • Mars Attacks Martian

The Rocketeer and the Martian are the hardest figures to get, coming in at 1/72 chance, while Jayne Cobb is next in line at 1/36 chance. Ah, the joy and frustration of blind boxed items. Look for the figures to hit in September. See the images, including a full rarity breakdown, after the jump.

SH Monsterarts King Kong 061

The SH Monsterarts King Kong, based on the Peter Jackson’s 2005 King Kong film, was released earlier this year. I had the good fortune to grab this at NJCC last weekend. The figure looked pretty amazing, so I wanted to do up a shoot. And since it’s been out a bit, I decided to have some fun by doing a Godzilla vs King Kong shoot with NECA’s 12″ Head-To-Tail Godzilla 2014 Figure. In the movies, this Godzilla would tower over King Kong, but as figures, they work fantastically together.

Read on to check out over 60 photos as well as my thoughts on the figure (Spoiler: It’s an awesome figure).

Funko ReAction Figures

It looks like the folks at NECA have started an action figure revolution when they introduced NES style recolors. Those NES themed ideas have been “borrowed” by more than few companies. Now, it looks like Funko is getting in on the act. They recently posted up a photo that shows off a bunch of the upcoming ReAction Figures.

Within the picture, we see a few new, previously unannounced, figures. These include a Jason Voorhees NES Version, a Freddy Krueger NES Version and a Glow-In-The-Dark Creature From The Black Lagoon (not NES themed, but new). This is the first evidence that they are doing NES style figures. Also in the picture we get a look at additional Horror Series ReAction Figures and the Firefly ReAction Figures.

UPDATE:
Apparently, the NES variants are exclusive to Toy Tokyo.
