Wonder Woman and Solomon Grundy make up this awesome 2-pack of (roughly) 4-inch figure from DC Direct.
They’re brilliantly detailed, especially given their size, and make a great addition to your shelf if you’re a fan of the game or just love the incredible new costume designs.

Commander Steve Rogers, X-23, Darkhawk, Namor and Ultron make up the latest wave of figures from the still-growing Marvel Universe 3.75-inch Figure collection! Take a look:
Each one comes with accessories and features articulation that’s all the more impressive for the 3.75-inch scale at which the characters are rendered. As per usual, you can snag the Marvel heroes or villains individually or as a complete set.
And look out next week for the fifth wave, including Tony Stark as Iron Man, Iceman, Absorbing Man, Astonishing Wolverine and Magneto!

Starring Seth Rogen, Jay Chou, Cameron Diaz and the incredible Christoph Waltz and directed by Michael Gondry, The Green Hornet is sure to be interesting, at least, no matter which way you come down on the casting of the goofball from all the Apatow movies as a hero previous established as a smooth operator. It’s a strange mix of actors, crew and talents, so it’s going to be hard to tell how it’ll go over, but at least we can have something of a sneak preview thanks to these new pictures from Bleeding Cool, who also offers a non-review you can click here to read!
And in anticipation of the film’s success, the folks at MEZCO have just released a pair of 12-inch figures from the film, featuring 9 (Kato) and 11 (Green Hornet) point of articulation, switch-out hands for weapons and some pretty impressive likenesses of the actors. You can grab them
here as individual figures or snag the pair!

I promise to give Marvel some love in a moment, but here’s another post about new pre-orders from the folks at DC Direct. Sculpted by Jonathan Matthews (and the second one designed by Dustin Nguyen), here are the two new items from the highly acclaimed Ame-Comi PVC figure collection, blending anime and Western comic book characters to create some pretty cool looks…
Here’s the second version of Supergirl, a different take on the character that I have to say I prefer. Her costume is definitely an improvement over the last one and I can almost forgive the ditzy look on her face as she looks at herself in the mirror if only because she’s apparently ripped it off a probably-speeding car.
Now here’s a girl who looks like a hero. Unlike the cutesy stance given to Supergirl, Wondergirl and a few others in the collection, Steel stands with some dignity in the vein of Wonder Woman and Catwoman from the collection. She stands with her weapon held proudly, tall and unafraid. Equally impressive is the size of her thighs, which shows the muscle definition one should expect in a woman who does the work she does. This might just be a favourite.
