This looks a lot like what that one really mean and crazy kid did in Toy Story. Yamaguchi Katuhisa took an R2-D2 figure and mashed him up with other characters. Now, R2-D2’s rage has been unleashed.

Pikachu is ready for the boardroom in the business suit with glasses and a briefcase. He even comes with three different business card designs. The plushie celebrates the start of Spring in Japan and the time most Japanese companies have new hires begin work.

Unfortunately, Pikachu might not get far in the business world if he insists on not wearing pants.

He’s the first in a year of seasonal Pikachu designs that are planned. A new one will be coming out each month. In April he’ll be celebrating Boys’/Children’s Day with a helmet and carp streamers like the ones that decorate Japanese homes for the day.

Check out the business card designs after the break along with April’s Pikachu.

dragon ball pie

Yamcha’s death at the hands of a Saibaman in Dragon Ball Z, has long been a meme. Now it’s a new figure from Bandai.

This figure recreates Yamcha in his death pose in pretty much perfect detail. As you can see from the image above, a lot of fun can be had with a figure like this.

play arts star wars

Remember when we talked about that awesome Star Wars Play Arts Kai Variant Darth Vader? Well, now you can add Boba Fett and a Stormtrooper to that list.

And man, they’re gorgeous.

Between the detail, the style and the accessories, these two figures look like something out of an awesome Star Wars anime.

star wars mural

This crazy cool mural is the work of artist Robert Burden who created it as a tribute to the classic Kenner toys. The images represent both action figures and vehicles from the vintage toy collection (click to enlarge).

It took him 2,000 hours and 18 months to create the 15′ x 8′ mural as an oil painting. There are a few symbolic images that are a nod to the influences that helped create Star Wars (like Yul Brynner in The Magnificent Seven) as well as some newer toys, but it’s mostly old-school.

You’ll be able to see it live at Star Wars Celebration next month and even pick up a 36″ x 24″ print from Burden’s online store. If you’ve got deep pockets and a lot of wall space, then buy the original for $200,000.

Sideshow Collectibles did an interesting take on Beauty And The Beast by releasing a Black Cat statue and The Monster Book of Monsters prop on the same day.

The Black Cat Polystone statue is part of the J. Scott Campbell Spider-Man Collection and it definitely captures Campbell’s sensual style.

The Monster Book Of Monsters replica is, well, let’s just say I wouldn’t want it in a dark room with me — but it’s pretty cool looking. It also comes packaged with a limited edition of Harry Potter: The Creature Vault which has detailed profiles of each creature, and some interesting hidden goodies.

Head after the break to see more pictures of both collectibles.

We’ve seen an RC Millennium Falcon, a TIE Interceptor and even a Speeder Bike recently, so the inclusion of an Imperial Star Destroyer version was inevitable.

It’s a great build, but watching it chase after the Falcon along with a few special effect lasers in the third video is amazing.

See the videos after the break.

We recently features the new Guardians Of The Galaxy Dorbz line by Funko and now they’re adding to the line with the new Batman Dorbz. I”m torn between which one I like best. Batgirl is super cute, but The Penguin’s monacle may be putting him over the top.

Check them out after the break.

clint and lucky

While this figure set is being marketed as a Hawkeye figure and Lucky the Dog is an added bonus, I know there are fans out there who’d totally prefer a Pizza Dog figure with bonus Clint.

Either way, you can get both Clint and Lucky, along with a bow, six arrows, gun, interchangeable left hand, and two interchangeable heads (for Clint, not Lucky).

They’re in stock now.
