The latest SDCC exclusive to potentially empty your wallet is this shiny version of the Arkham Origins Play Arts Kai figure of Batman. From the product page:

BATMAN™: Arkham Origins depicts Batman when he first started on his path as a vigilante. We made sure to recreate the details of his youthful physique, its careful sculpting heighted by the metallic color variation. The chest area incorporates a flexible material, maintaining beautiful aesthetics and allowing for a wide range of motion. The cape is also articulated, which makes for great variation in poses, from flying through the night sky with his cape spread wide like wings, to a more dormant stance with his wings closed and stowed.

The figure measures 12.5″ wide x 2.8″ deep x 10.6″ tall with 500 units available at SDCC and then 500 allocated to online preorders that will be filled in August.

You know, in your head, that you would be the most fantastic superhero to ever walk the planet if you had powers. The folks at You Kick Ass get that so they’ve launched a kickstarter for a line of custom superhero action figures that have your face. Each head is 3D printed to look just like the customer and then attached to one of several available bodies like Armored Man, Man on Fire, Kicking Girl, or Running Woman.

You even get to decide which powers you’ll wield and get a comic strip with your origin story. It’s already fully funded so supporting the campaign now will have you turned into a superhero when figures ship next month.

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.

Since this Stormtrooper is a Samurai he could probably sneak up and lop your head off without ever revealing his presence, but he’s so cute! This little Stormtrooper Samurai was a custom order created by toy makers Guillaume and Julia Lachambre of Artmymind in Paris, France. He measures 5″ tall and is made of epoxy, acrylics, fabric and resin. Unfortunately, he’s not available for sale, but that makes him no less adorable.
