Thrilled by his experience with the Avengers, Peter returns home, where he lives with his Aunt May, under the watchful eye of his new mentor Tony Stark. Peter tries to fall back into his normal daily routine – distracted by thoughts of proving himself to be more than just your friendly neighborhood Spider-Man – but when the Vulture emerges as a new villain, everything that Peter holds most important will be threatened.
Bandai Japan / Tamashii Nations have been producing some really great alternate universe versions of classic Star Wars characters for a couple years now. The Star Wars Movie Realization line feature (to date) Empire aligned characters in ancient Samurai themes. So far we have 2 versions of Darth Vader, Boba Fett, Royal Guard, Sandtrooper, Sandtrooper Commander, and Stormtroopers in 3 samruai themed flavors. There are also more on the way with Jango Fett, Proto Armor Bob Fett, and Darth Maul.
Today we are taking a look at one of those Stormtroopers – the Yumiashigaru Stormtrooper – aka “The Archer”. He comes with sculpt that mixes existing Stormtrooper and Royal Guard bodies along with some new work on the head and shoulder guards. On the back, he sports his arrow pack and bow, which are both futuristic / steampunk in nature. This line mixes classic, futuristic and Steampunk-like styling giving it a unique look. At a beefy 7 inch scale, they have a great presence on any display shelf. Let’s take a look after the break with over 55 HD images!

Ghostbusters Select Series 5 brings fans three all-new figures and the final pieces to form the awesome rooftop diorama.

Quantum Mechanix (QMx) produces high quality collectibles with a twist from the standard fare. They cover high end prop and ship replicas, 1/6th scale figures all the way down to fun and reasonably priced items like Q-Figs. We’ve looked at several of the Q-Fig offerings before. They’re fun, perfect to hang out on the desk and add diversity to a shelf. Today we are looking at three more – Iron Man, Daredevil, and Supergirl. Iron Man features a light up air-gel base while Daredevil (from the Netflix Series) and Supergirl are standard with their diorama base. These aren’t Pop! Vinyls by any means, they are injected molded PVC figures with a lot more sculpt, paint and detail going into each. A good bridge between a full on action figure and a Pop! if you ask me.
Supergirl and Daredevil run for $14.95 and are now available via qmxonline.com. Iron Man is $19.95 and in stock now. They can be ordered at retailers like BBTS, Entertainment Earth, Hobby Link Japan, Woozy Moo and directly at qmxonline.com.

Figuarts or Storm? Read on to check 60+ images and find out courtesy of Entertainment Earth!
After suffering near fatal wounds in Friday The 13th Part 3, the nearly unstoppable killer, Jason Voorhees, returns in Friday The 13th Part 4: The Final Chapter. Making his way back to Camp Crystal Lake to continue his reign of terror, he tears through the current inhabitants of Camp Blood, until he meets his match in a young boy named Tommy Jarvis. The young Tommy is a special effects wizard who understands the mindset of a freak and an outcast. In the fourth film in the storied franchise, Jason Voorhees is finally killed, only to be returned to life by the same person who originally defeated him (in Part 6). For their third Jason Voorhees Ultimate release, NECA brings together head sculpts and accessories from multiple classic releases and updates the paint scheme and masks. Armed with everything from a machete to a corkscrew and featuring multiple masks and head sculpts, this release is one fans will want to check out.
Toyark sponsor Dorkside Toys sent along the figure for us to check out. We have over 50 photos and a full review. Read on to check them out.
Today we are taking a look at a figure I’ve been looking forward to for a while, the Entertainment Earth Exclusive One:12 Collective Glow in the Dark Space Ghost! This is a modern interpretation of a classic character, bringing Space Ghost into modern times. It’s based on the original Space Ghost as a super hero from the 60s cartoon, but that doesn’t mean you can’t have him hang out with Moltar, Zorak and Brak to do some interviews Coast to Coast style! We’ve done up over 100 shots of Space Ghost showing what he can do, both in the light and glowing in the dark! Oh, and we might have gone a little nuts and built a studio for him to do some new interviews in too. :) Read on to check it and some additional thoughts courtesy of Entertainment Earth!
