Today we are following up with a look at a second Storm Collectibles Injustice figure – Darkseid! This is another larger figure in storm’s beefy 1/12 scale, so he has the height and heft needed to work as a modern version of the character. Detailing is sharp in the “skin” areas, with rocky like sculpting. His torso uses Storm’s flexible rubber to allow for posing. He comes packed with 4 sets of hands, 4 heads, smoking eye energy effects, and eye laser effects. All in all it’s a sharp presentation and like Doomsday, is a great stand in for a modern mix and match DC shelf. We’ve run him through a set of pics to show off his goods, read on to check out over 30 HD shots courtesy of Entertainment Earth!

Storm Collectibles have been killing it with the video game figures. They started with Mortal Kombat and Street Fighter but have expanded into multiple games across multiple eras. All of which use their unique design style and scale. A couple figures popped out to me as a fan of DC stuff – Doomsday and Darkseid from Injustice. While video game based – they are large well done figures that can stand in for these guys in any multi generational DC line up. Today we are taking a look at Doomsday. He’s very faithful to the game and has all the elements Doomsday should have – grey skin, green trunks, bony protrusions throughout the body. He does have a pony tail, but hey they guy was trying to up his game for the ladies I guess. All in all it’s a great beefy figure that’s now hanging out on my all purpose DC shelf. We’ve run him through a set, read on to check out over 35 HD shots courtesy of Entertainment Earth!
In 1989, SEGA released on of their most iconic video games, Golden Axe, into the arcades. Soon after, the game was ported to numerous home computers and a few consoles. When the SEGA Genesis (US) and Mega Drive (Europe, UK, Japan, etc.) were released, SEGA was quick to work on near perfect arcade ports for their powerful home console, including Golden Axe.
In the game, you play as one of three warriors in the land of Yuria. The heroes are Ax Battler; a sword-wielding barbarian, Tyris Flare; an Amazonian warrior and sword wielder, and Gilius Thunderhead; a dwarf who wields a battle ax. Each of the heroes posses an elemental magic as well, which they can unleash after collecting magic urns from the dwarf-like thieves in the game. Ax Battler controls earth magic, Tyris uses fire, and Gilius uses lightning. The heroes battle their way across the land, facing off against the forces of Death Adder, who has kidnapped Yuria’s King and Queen. The game is a classic side scrolling hack ‘n slash brawler, with a variety of enemies, boss battles, and mythical creatures.
Storm Collectibles is releasing figures based on the classic brawler. The first release features Ax Battler, paired with one of the Red Dragon’s that you can ride in the game. The figure includes swap out heads, interchangeable hands, a sword, and a fireball for the dragon. We picked up the figure from sponsor Entertainment Earth. You can see a full photo gallery and review after the jump.
Gears of War 5 is getting ready to drop and we are taking a look at the new Storm Collectibles Marcus Fenix action figure. This is the standard version, there is a Gamestop exclusive alternate color one as well. Marcus comes packed with 3 heads – a young one, an older one and an older one without the head rag. He also has two Lancer guns, a shotgun, a pistol, knife and 6 extra hands. For anyone familiar with Storm Collectibles figures, this is on par. Beefy, painted figures with ball joint hollow uppers, floating crotch and double jointed knees/elbows. Fists pop on and off easily with the peg system they use. The Gears style from game translate well to this format, as they have a hefty stance and so do Storm figs in general. Paint and weathering on the armor and guns is well done, adding a level of realism to the mix.
Bottom line, if you are into the games, this is a worthy pick up. Read on to check out over 40 HD images courtesy of Bluefin Brands after the break!
At New York Comic-Con 2018, Storm Collectibles and Bluefin released two new Ninja exclusives in Rain and Smoke. Then, last month they unleashed the Storm Collectibles Goro figure on US collectors. We’ve had these in hand for a bit, and have finally been able to set time to do a proper photo shoot. Bluefin sent the three figure along, and we have over 75 high resolution images to check out. After the jump, you can see my thoughts on the figures as well as the new gallery.
For San Diego Comic-Con 2018, Storm Collectibles and Bluefin teamed up to offer a new variant of the Mortal Kombat 1/12 Scale Ninja Figure. The new figure is a Mortal Kombat 1 & 2 styled Ermac. A fusion of many souls, Ermac is initially under the control of Shao Kahn. With the death of Shao Kahn in Mortal Kombat (2011), Ermac is freed from his control and aligns himself with Kotal Kahn, the new ruler of Outworld. Due to the overwhelming number of souls at his disposal, Ermac has mastered telekinesis and teleportation. As with all of their Ninja figures, Ermac includes interchangeable masks, swap out hands and character themed effects pieces.
Our friends at Bluefin sent along an Ermac for us to check out. After the jump you can see our thoughts and a full photo gallery.
Storm Collectibles have been killing it with the fighting figures over the last year and change, and SDCC 2018 saw 3 awesome releases from them. Heihachi from Tekken along with Alex and Shin Akuma from Street Fighter. Today we are taking a quick look at Akuma! This figure features new articulation in the legs and upper body as he rocks his classic hair style – no lion’s mane here. He has a reddish tint, white hair, and veins showing on all skinned areas. The accessories include an alternate gi with his kanji lettering on the back, 3 heads, 4 sets of hands, a Gohadouken blast, stand for the blast, and two flaming effect pieces for the arms. Oh and of course he has his signature prayer beads around the neck.
All in all it’s a really sharp release. I personally prefer this version of Akuma to the standard SFV version and the alternate color scheme on the skin makes him stand out on the shelf. If you dig the line, he’s definitely worth a pick up!

In 1993, Mortal Kombat II introduced the supreme ruler of Outworld; the emperor Shao Kahn. Since then, he has remained one of the Mortal Kombat series’ primary antagonists, often serving as the final boss. Shao Kahn is a ruthless conqueror who sets his sites on Earthrealm, hoping to rule it alongside Outworld. Prevented from taking the realm by force, Shao Kahn is required to earn 10 consecutive victories in the Mortal Kombat tournament by the Elder Gods. Only then will Earthrealm be his for the taking. After 9 consecutive victories, his champions are ultimately defeated by Liu Kang and the Earthrealm warriors. After the crushing defeat, he lures their champions to Outworld, laying the seeds to invade Earth regardless of the outcome.
Shao Kahn is a massive warrior, sporting a warlord style outfit. He rarely removes his Warlord Helmet, and features spiked shoulder pads, all while wielding his oversized Wrath Hammer. His appearance is captured perfectly in a new 1/12 scale action figure by Storm Collectibles. Our friends at Bluefin have sent along the figure for us to check out. Read on for my thoughts and a full gallery of the figure.
Disguised as an Earthrealm ninja, the cunning Reptile is a loyal assassin and warrior for Shao Kahn. The last of his kind, Reptile once hid his true form, revealing himself only to those who would fall at his hands. First appearing in the original Mortal Kombat as a hidden opponent, Reptile has evolved greatly throughout the Mortal Kombat series, starting as a color swapped Ninja, and eventually becoming a completely unique character design. His most memorable appearances, though, are from the original two games.
Storm Collectibles has taken their excellent ninja sculpt and reworked it to become Reptile. The figure joins Sub-Zero, Scorpion and Noob Saibot in the growing line, which will see Shao Kahn released next! Our friends at Bluefin have sent along the figure for us to check out. Read on for a full write up and over 60 photos of the excellent figure.
