(2) an epic HUGE-a$$ heavy machine gun, and (3) A pair of additional gun-holding hands! (Hoping the gun is not too heavy to be held and posed tho :p) And BOTH includes a “non-articulated miniature” BABY GROOT figure (blurred out in both edition’s product release images lol).

Price is US$197.99 for the regular edition, and US$227.99 for the Deluxe p on Check in with your own fav retailer(s) for final pricing, if you so please :)

A quick check on Amazon yielded Version 1 of Rocket for US$154.95 and US$407 for Version 1 of Rocket+Groot (Highest listed price being nearly US$4K!), so you might want to consider NOT missing out on these when the feature film hits and is yet another runaway success! LOL

New CEREAL KILLER Figures by Ron English seen at #NewYorkToyFair 2017

Seen on display at New York Toy Fair 2017 last weekend was a new series of smaller sized / mini versions of Ron English’s Cereal Killers, with this (presumably) 3 to 4-inch tall vinyls produced by MINDstyle (?) and on show at the Toy Tokyo booth.

A post shared by Toy Tokyo (@toy_tokyo) on

A post shared by WOOT BEAR (@wootbearbelly) on

Making up the “Last Supper” in Mr English’s array of cereal-mascot parodies (I want that “Diabetes” tee on the bear :p), they look to be individually boxed (and not "blind-boxed"?). No further news of the figures’ release, but I'll definitely update as soon as I know!

I've LOOOONG wanted Ron English Cereal Kiiler-vinyls in the past - the larger sized ones - but alas falls outside of my financial ability, but perhaps I might get a crack at a figure or two in this size-range (and hopefully more economically viable range). Schweet stuff to look forward to!

An closer-look at the armoured “Alphonse Elric” has since been revealed on the official website of the FULL METAL ALCHEMIST live-action feature film, to go with his earlier full-body look (and even earlier view of his torso alongside his brother Edward Elric - played by Ryosuke Yamada), having both Elric-brothers ready to kick transmutated-butt on the silver screens!

WHO-IS: Alphonse Elric (アルフォンス・エルリック, Arufonsu Erurikku) is the deuteragonist of the Fullmetal Alchemist series. The younger brother of Edward Elric, the Fullmetal Alchemist, Al is also a victim of the failed Human Transmutation experiment in which Ed lost his right arm and left leg. Having had his entire physical being taken away from him in the aftermath of the tragedy, Alphonse exists solely as a soul alchemically bound to a large suit of steel armor.

One Punch Man’s GENOS in 1/6 by threezero Revealed @ Wonder Festival 2017 [Winter]

With his silhouette teased at Toy Soul 2016, revealed at the recent Sunday’s Wonder Festival 2017 was the 1/6th-scaled GENOS from Threezero! No word on WHEN “Genos” will be joining his “sensei” Saitama on your toy-display shelves, but it looks to be “soon” (tentative March release, actually :p), as the advertising banner image for Genos has been unleashed post-WFW just (see image below)!

I personally am hella excited, as threezero does exceedingly well with mecha/robot-styled sculpts, and the cyborg-Genos would be a perfect “fit” to their catalog, methinks! Now all he needs is an additional “morphed” blaster-arm accessory! LOL

(*And NO, I do not get tired of reposting this, thanks! LOL)

ELEVEN - #StrangerThings Art Toy from Oasim Karmieh

One of the more standout fictional media characters of the Year 2016, has to be “ELEVEN” from Netflix’s “Stranger Things” TV series (played by breakout actress Millie Bobby Brown), resulting in a myriad of adaptations into collectibles - from unlicensed to licensed Pop!Vinyls!

And it’s not over yet! With the coming of Season 2, and the constant streaming of Netflix, the series and it’s characters do not necessarily become a “past memory” (with “reruns” to help them survive ignormity - as regular cable shows are wont to be), as they are constantly being “discovered” by new viewers and fans.

On the “collectible toy”-front, there’s a NEW figure to be had of “Eleven”, with her eggos “in-action”! (*The curved-up Eggo-sculpt was an inspired touch!)

"Eleven figurine is part of a collection of custom and handcrafted toys, that has been sculpted and hand painted by Oasim Karmieh based on a beautiful illustration by Rocio Garcia.

It stands at around 6 inches / 15 cm tall without the base and 6.5 inches / 16 cm tall with the base. Includes removable and posable Magnetic Eggos, and metallic base”
ELEVEN is priced at US$175.00, of a limited edition Signed and Numbered 20 Copies worldwide - Pre-order now Expected to start shipping End of March 2017.

Two IMAX one-sheets for GHOST IN THE SHELL showcases a close-up of one of the oriental-looking Robot Geishas (see above), perhaps to distract folks from the earlier “white-washing” accusations of casting a caucasian Ms Johansson in the role of Japanese “Motoko Kusanagi” … while the poster featured below shows actress Scarlett Johansson as “The Major”, crashing thru a window.

Scheduled for a March 31st 2017 premiere in the USA (March 30th in Singapore), there’s not much folks can do about that, now can they? Just enjoy it for what it IS, than expect what it WAS - as even I am telling myself now LOL
