garrus toy 1

If you’re a fan of Mass Effect, you may want to start saving your dollars. Gaming Heads is releasing a line of 1/4 scale statues from the game, and their Garrus Vakarian figure is available for pre-order. The highly detailed collectible stands at 21-inches and features the character in his trademark armor and armed with an Incisor Sniper rifle. I can’t get over how good the painting on the armor looks and how much the face sculpt resembles the character.

The statues will ship at the beginning of next year. One run is limited to 1,000 pieces, and another edition also comes with the Phaeston and will only have 500 pieces.

fett 1

Do you need the best of the best to track down a bounty? Look no further than this Boba Fett statue from Sideshow Collectibles. The life-size figure stands at 6.5 feet tall and is incredibly detailed.

Fett comes with the following: “authentic replica of his Mandalorian armor, featuring an articulated helmet with adjustable rangefinder, intricately detailed fabric costume and utility belt, a light-up chest panel, and braided Wookiee scalp accessories.”

He also has weapons and helpful tools inside his pockets. And yes, he would look good next to their life-sized Han Solo in carbonite statue.

Pre-order now to receive Boba Fett in September. More photos of the bounty hunter after the break.

zelda figure 1

Count your rupees because if you’ve been waiting for a perfect Zelda statue to come along, it’s your lucky day. First 4 Figures, creators of this epic Link and Epona piece, have just made the Twilight Princess version of Zelda available for pre-order. She’s part of their “Master Arts” line and stands at 17-inches tall (including the base). The sculpt is elegant and oh so very detailed.

Every piece of her armor and jewelry appears to be carefully reproduced. You can see the pale embroidery pattern on the bottom of her dress, and the fabric looks realistic. I’m amazed by the paint job, and I can only imagine how good it must look in person. The series of collectible statues is limited to just 2,500 pieces.

cthulhu cute monster

There are times when Cthulhu isn’t terrifying. It doesn’t happen often, but when it does, it’s usually because the monster is in some sort of toy form. This adorable sculpt by Cassia Harries isn’t exactly a toy, but it is a collectible figure! She sculpted it by hand, cast it from resin, and painted all the little touches. At just over three inches tall, he’s a tiny bite-sized piece of art. An army of these tiny Cthulhus will be on sale soon!

1966 batman header

I should realize by now that Hot Toys delivers impressive sculpts and figures all the time, but I’m always taken aback at just how life-like their toys look. The latest in their collection blows me away. Their 1/6th scale 1966 Batman looks just like Adam West. I swear they put him in a machine and shrunk him into collectible size.

Besides the fact that it resembles him and that the mask is a screen accurate sculpt, Batman comes with classic accessories like a bomb and shark repellant. Like most Hot Toys figures, Batman also comes with different hands and facial expressions.

There’s no word on a release date just yet, but you can go ahead and get excited. You should also know they releasing Burt Ward’s Robin and an era appropriate Batmobile too. You can see teases of those toys along with much more Adam West after the break.

Gentle Giant is going to be offering the coolest Ackbar figure ever at San Diego Comic-Con this year. The “Magnitude” mini bust is based on a design by artist Steven Daily. It features the Mon Calamari Admiral in full regalia and is limited to 500 pieces. The retail price is set at $175. I’d definitely get in line for this exclusive; he would look perfect on my desk.

teddy bear girl walking dead

You never know when you’ll need to scare the crap out of someone, so get a life-sized animated version of the Teddy Bear Girl from The Walking Dead! She’s over 4 feet tall and her moves are activated by sound. She floats across the floor like a zombie, and she makes zombie sounds (of course). You could put her out for Halloween or bring her out as a surprise when you have house guests who have overstayed their welcome. Yes, I’m evil.

nintendo game

At some point you’d think the valuable collectibles of the world would all be purchased, never to be found at a flea market or local thrift store again. The classic tale of treasure found in an unexpected place still thrives though. A North Carolina woman spent $7.99 on an old Nintendo game at a Goodwill store. The game – Stadium Events – is apparently one of the rarest ever sold and is worth $15,000.

She knew what she had when she took it and other games to local shop Save Point Video Games. Owner Wilder Hamm couldn’t keep his poker face when he saw it. From Kotaku:

“Normally in this business, we try not to show our cards,” Hamm said. “We’re not in the business of ripping people off but, you show that kind of excitement, they start expecting a mountain of money.”

He couldn’t make a reasonable offer for the cartridge, which was in good condition, so the woman plans to put it on eBay. Keep an eye out for it—and if you like to spend time at thrift stores on the hunt, it just may pay off. You never know.

IG88Kenner8

The line of jumbo size Kenner figures by Gentle Giant is one of my favorite toy series available right now. I love seeing the 3 3/4″ Kenner originals scaled to 12″ through digital scans and modeling. The line is continuing with bounty hunter IG-88. He’s fully articulated and ready to bring in his target. The figure comes on an Empire Strikes Back inspired blister card that is just as cool as the actual collectible.

Pre-order now for shipment in Q3.
