action-figures

It seems like practically every character in the Star Wars universe has their own action figure, from Jabba the Hutt’s lackey Salacious Crumb to that guy running through Cloud City carrying an ice-cream maker. There’s one character who probably won’t be getting an official action figure any time soon, though, and that’s ‘Matt the Radar Technician’, aka Kylo Ren as seen in Saturday Night Live‘s fantastic Star Wars / Undercover Boss skit.

Fortunately, dedicated fan and custom toy maker Jim Heston has filled the gap, producing this not-quite-authentic but otherwise impressive-looking action figure of Matt, complete with Kylo Ren’s Lightsaber accessory.

A full picture of the toy can be seen below.

We don’t have much detail on 3A’s Steel Age 1/6th Scale Batman, but designer Ashley Wood did such a good job that I don’t think I need to say more than “you should check out the rest of the pictures”.

There’s a new addition to the Tamashii Nations Star Wars Movie Realization line and he’s armed for battle—with a drum.

The Taikoyaku Stormtrooper is decked in Samurai armor and comes with a traditional Taiko drum, which is used to intimidate and scare the enemy as well as motivate the troops and communicate orders. It also features drumsticks, a conch, and a banner, and all the stunning detail we’ve come to associate with this line.

body-chan-top

The S.H. Figuarts lineup is crammed with awesome figures, but it looks like Bandai is expanding into the art supply realm with these male and female “Body-kun” and “Body-chan” models.

They feature 30 points of articulation (natural poses only) and come with a variety of accessories and parts (including swords and guns). Basically, if you’re looking to draw some anime-style action, these would be a fantastic upgrade over traditional figure models.

This is just funny to me.

That’s right. a fully posable Figma version of Michelangelo’s David now exists. It stands a little under 6-inches tall and comes with alternate hands, sling parts, and moveable eyes.

David vs. Galactus maybe?

medieval-justice-league

Holy dark ages Batman! These Justice League figures looks awesome as RPG warriors. The “Dungeon League” set is the work of artist Sillof who’s well known for making fantastic custom action figures. On his website, Sillof explains his inspiration:

“Anyone who has ever played a role-playing game in their childhood probably at some point imagined what some of their favorite characters from television, film, comics, and literature would look like inside the medieval fantasy world of their chosen RPG, I know I did.

I spent house imagining what race and class each of them would be. Recently I decided to indulge my childhood fantasies and make some of those characters. While this is not a unique endeavor and it has been done by others before in various ways I think they are still unique and I hope you enjoy them.”

Check out the Medieval Batman, Superman, The Flash, Green Lantern, and Wonder Woman after the break.

If you’re stoked on Metal Gear Solid V, then you’ll probably dig this new Venom Snake figure from Union Creative. It features 27 points of articulation and comes with a whole mess of cool accessories including a knife, a phantom cigar (always a must!), a sniper rifle, a papercraft box (for sneaking) and six optional hands. The $65 price tag is a bit steep ($95 will get you the figure before January apparently), but hey—six hands!

ThreeZero-Kevin-Eastman-TMNT-630x420

While Michael Bay’s Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle movies aren’t everyone’s cup of tea, they have helped keep the turtles in the limelight. ThreeZero is looking to tap into the nostalgia with a line of comic-inspired sixth-scale action figures and they’ve brought Kevin Eastman, one of the original TMNT creators, on board to help.

The successful Kickstarter launched last summer by ESC-Toy and Devolver Digital produced a very cool Hotline Miami action figure. Fans asked for a Biker and they delivered. The project will easily surpass its goal, so you expect delivery of your figure in June 2016 should you decide to pledge.

See the project video and more pictures after the break.
