As the Norse God of thunder and lightning, Thor wields one of the greatest weapons ever made, the enchanted hammer Mjölnir. While others have described Thor as an over-muscled, oafish imbecile, he’s quite smart and compassionate. He’s self-assured, and he would never, ever stop fighting for a worthwhile cause.

Just a heads up to all our fans planning on visiting New York Comic Con 2017 this weekend – Bluefin Brands and Tamashii Nations will have several pieces in stock and ready for purchase at the show that have not hit retailers in the United States yet. Most of these are not hitting US Retailers for another 1-2 months.
This will be your first chance to purchase and go home with S.H. Figuarts Homecoming Spiderman with Option Act Wall, S.H. Figuarts GotG Vol. 2 Star Lord with Explosion Set and S.H. Figuarts Dragonball Z Super Saiyan 3 Goku.
In addition to this, there is VERY limited stock available for 2 higher end pieces – the R2-D2 Bandai CHOGOKIN x 12 Perfect Model and the Bandai Hobby PG Millennium Falcon.
All of these can be bought at the Bluefin booth #1612 at NYCC all weekend!
We grabbed our copies of some of these today, read on to check out some teaser shots for Spidey, Star Lord and Goku! Full sets for each coming soon!
QMX continues to drop adorable mini figures in the form of their Q-Fig line. Q-Figs are meant to capture “the whimsy nature of a child cosplaying as their favorite character”. Their Marvel Universe offerings have been top notch, emoting fun and youthfulness on first glance. They’ve recently released Rocket and Groot to match their Star Lord from Guardians of the Galaxy Vol 2. We’ve run the little guys through the motions, check some shots after the break!
Fox’s Gotham TV show is a guilty pleasure. It’s a mix of campy 60s Batman and raw violence. The story is all over the place, forging it’s own way in a definitively alt-universe. It’s got a love hate relationship with the fans, but Diamond Select Toys figures for the series have been great. Series 4 has just been released, consisting of Mr. Freeze, Azrael, and Hugo Strange. Each come with a Diorama piece, which have all been fantastic since the start. Mr. Freeze and Azrael come with a repaint of Series 1’s two story alleyway piece. This time it’s got a brick tone to it with Joker themed graffiti. Hugo Strange comes with his laboratory chair so he can experiment on any 7 inch scale figure in your arsenal. Each also come with additional accessories which you can see in the pics after the break!
Aliens Series 12 sees the release of new versions of both Ellen Ripley and Private Jenette Vasquez as well as two (updated) re-releases of the Battle Damages Xenomorph Warriors. The new version of Ripley features her bomber jacket, a pulse rifle and an attachable muzzle flash. Vasquez is seen here in her combat BDU’s, complete with pistol, knife, pulse rifle and attachable muzzle flash. The Battle Damaged Alien Warriors are re-releases of the Xenomorphs included in the 2-packs with Hicks and Hudson from 2013. They have been updated with the new body style being used for the Ultimate Alien Warriors. This series of figures is available in stores now.
NECA sent along the new wave for us to check out. After the jump, check out the photos and my thoughts on these figures. Also, don’t forget to check out our Aliens Hadley’s Hope Photo Shoot, which is a great companion set to this wave.
The second Black Series vehicle to drop during Star Wars The Last Jedi toy releases is the retail edition of Luke Skywalker and his X-34 Landspeeder. This was Luke’s ride while on Tatooine before going off planet in A New Hope. The figure and vehicle were released at San Diego Comic Con 2017 as an exclusive, which we did an in depth gallery for here. This is the same thing, with some changes, both major an minor, to the figure and vehicle. Read on to check out what’s different and see over 40 HD images courtesy of Dorkside Toys!
The second Star Wars Black Series Centerpiece features Luke Skywalker on Hoth, emerging from a downed At-At foot in the heat of battle, lightsaber drawn. It features a static Luke Skywalker statue, an At-At foot with moving “toes”, an explosion piece with LED flickering lights, and two snowy floor bases that you can use to position 6 Inch Black Series figures around. It’s a perfect fit for the previously released At-At pilot and Snowtrooper figures to work with. And as with the first Centerpiece, you can remove the statue and swap in a pilot Luke figure instead. We’ve done up 30+ images to show of what can be done courtesy of Dorkside Toys after the break!
Over the Summer, the sci-fi film Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets was released in theaters. It’s based on the French science fiction comics series Valérian and Laureline. It was directed by Luc Besson, whose previous works include The Professional, The Fifth Element and Lucy. In the film, Valerian (Dane DeHann) and Laureline (Cara Delevingne) are special operatives instructed to head to Alpha, a massive city in space that peacefully houses thousands of species from all over the universe. Their mission shifts as a dark force rises up that threatens the City of a Thousand Planets, as well as the universe itself. When released in theaters, the film landed with a thud, as audiences in North America showed little to no interest in the film. Overseas, the film fared far better, raking in over $182 Million.
In December of last year, NECA announced plans to create figures based on the film. They were fully revealed just prior to the films release in July. Thanks to NECA, we have an advanced look at the figures. After the jump, find my thoughts as well as my photo shoot for the figures.
One of the many retailer exclusives announced for Black Series Star Wars The Last Jedi was the Guardians of Evil 4 pack. This shows the evolution of the Royal Guards through the different eras. It includes the Senate Guard in blue from the Prequels, the Imperial Royal Guard in red from the OT, the Emperor’s Shadow Guard in black from Legends, and finally the Elite Praetorian Guard in red from The Last Jedi. All 4 come window boxed in the current black and red packaging style. It’s exclusive to Gamestop in the US. We have our copy in hand and have done up a set showing them off.
