Iron Fist (redeco), Psylocke, Storm, Patriot, Thunder Age Thor and Shadowland Daredevil make up the sixth wave of Marvel Universe’s 2011 line of 3.75-inch figures. As per usual, you can get these guys individually or as a complete set if you’re a collector. This series has an especially awesome look, as a kind of metallic sheen makes the outfits stand out all the more.
These guys are currently available for pre-order, but you don’t need to worry about the wait– they’re coming out later this month!

Master of disguise and mercenary ZARTAN has arrived as a 12-inch figure from Sideshow.

Of course, since it’s Sideshow, you can very much expect to find a host of awesome features when this guy ships out in the first quarter of 2012. Check out the list and then get pre-ordering!

Based on the sold-out, full-sized statue designed by DC artist JIM LEE, this 7-inch statue of Batman over Gotham is painted in a faux-bronze finish that makes it an amazing centrepiece despite its size.

Naturally, this one is a limited edition so be sure to get your hands on it ASAP! It’s a pre-order, so you can act now and expect delivery when it ships out in February 2012.

The Predator franchise is one that boasts a ton of action-packed movies and some of the most loyal fans out there. So it is absolutely no surprise whatsoever that Sideshow is bringing out some gorgeous new exclusives for this year’s San Diego Comic Con.

They’re about 6 inches tall, built at a 1:4 scale and based on the look of the beasts in ALIEN VS PREDATOR. They’re a product of Sideshow and Amalgamated Dynamics.

If you were a fan of Tron, you’ll definitely want to get your hands on this brand new Sideshow figure. Of course, if you’re not a fan of Tron, you might just want to get this figure and mod it into something closer to Jeff Bridges’ awesome turn as The Dude in The Big Lebowski.
Kevin Flynn looks great, though, as himself, and represents yet another example of Sideshow’s awesome work. Really, they’re pretty much unstoppable at this point. As you might expect, of course, the Sideshow brand also means it’s got a ton of features.

Prehistoric Batman, High Seas Batman, Witch Hunter Batman and Wild West Batman can now be pre-ordered as part of the RETURN OF BRUCE WAYNE collection. Based on the comics that followed Grant Morrison’s BATMAN RIP and following Bruce Wayne as he fight his way through time, the story culminated in BATMAN, INC. wherein the whole Bat-Family comes together and spreads out across the globe.
But mostly, the arc has made for some pretty rad figures, featuring Batman in ways he hasn’t been seen since the 90s brought us a ridiculous collection of Batman variants that had absolutely nothing to do with comics, films or television but gave kids another thing to snag off the shelves. And I’m pleased to say that these are much, much better.

Sweeping shadows in black and midnight blue, post-punk pretty Raven keeps her emotions in check so the dark magic of her heritage doesn’t devour her whole. Caped in swirling dark waves, this gloomcookie’s cloak of night locks in screaming lost souls, bats and beasts and terrors with teeth – including monster dad, the demon Trigon.
RAVEN and MERA are the latest pre-orderable figures to join DC’s AME-COMI PVC Statue Collection and they look great doing it. Both figures are about 10 inches tall and will be shipping in May 2011, but can be pre-ordered now to guarantee that you get yours!
The Queen of Atlantis shimmers in scales of sea green and gold. Reflecting on her underwater life, the Star of the Seven Seas hefts her trident and rides the tides. Taming the tempest, Mera dives into the depths for her next adventure.
And by the way… If you’re interested in more of DC’s women, maybe you’d like to check out the blog DC Women Kicking Ass! and their ongoing DC Women competition, October Madness, where you can vote on who will win in a given match-up!

Forget what Urban Dictionary says (or maybe remember it, because it also describes the hero), BAMF is, was and always will be the sound of Kurt Wagner’s awesome teleportation powers, exhibited as NIGHTCRAWLER within the pages of many, many X-Men comics! Formerly “Bampf”, the shortened BAMF isn’t just a sound and a descriptor, it’s what he’s doing in this new statue from Sideshow Toys!
Pretty awesome, no? Leaping out of a burst of pink smoke, this Polystone Kurt stands at a whopping 19 inches tall, making him perfect as the centerpiece of any Marvel Sideshow collection or maybe just a toy shelf in desperate need of something rad to sit on its surface. He also comes with an extra switch-out portrait to make it look even cooler and give it unique display possibilities.
Each one is individually hand-painted, of course, and you can pre-order yours now! They ship in the first quarter of 2011.

Make enemies tremble at the might of your 19-inch Galactus figure! This gargantuan warrior not only looks fierce with his massive size and cosmic lights, he sounds impressive too — when you press the button, he says phrases like “Tremble at the might of the Power Cosmic!” and “I am the devourer of worlds!” It’s up to your Silver Surfer figure to try to stop this huge villain from “destroying the world”. Will he succeed? Set up the battle and find out!
You might remember our original post on Hasbro’s Giant-Size Galactus, the 19-inch Masterworks series figure joined by Silver Surfer and capturing the character in a scale that suits his sheer magnitude. Well, if you liked that one but weren’t entirely sure of the bright purple, then you might prefer this darker Galactus variant, which lends a sense of realism or perhaps modern comic grittiness with a more muted palette.
This pre-orderable figure will be shipping in October!
