Movies, TV shows and video games, oh my! This week’s batch of action figure and statue news revolved mainly around those arenas. A quartet of new Star Wars pieces got unveiled along with “Sons of Anarchy” and “Game of Thrones” figures and statues based on game franchises like Street Fighter and Mega Man. To see all of them and more, read on!
STAR WARS | The biggest Star Wars toy news came from Sideshow Collectibles, who showed off a pair of new items from “Return of the Jedi.” Both the Scout Trooper and the Speeder Bike seen on Endor will be translated into the company’s 1/6 scale action figure line. As usual, Sideshow has exclusive versions of both — the figure comes with an E-11 Long Rifle and the bike an Aratech 74-Z Speeder Bike Specification Card. Both pieces will ship in July and can be displayed on their own or together.
STAR WARS | For a softer, cuddlier look at George Lucas’ brainchildren, Funko has two more pieces in their Fabrikation line of 6-inch plush toys. Chewbacca and Greedo made the crew this time around and will ship this fall. Each foam-filled piece features neck articulation and a vinyl accessory including Chewie’s crossbow and Greedo’s blaster.
STAR WARS | Those astromech droids sure do get around. Take R2-M5 here for example. It was aboard the Queen’s starship during the prequels and will be available exclusively at Barnes & Noble thanks to a deal with Kotobukiya. The ARTFX+ piece stands 4 inches tall, comes with a magnetic base and a commemorative coin. It’s available right now or on BarnesandNoble.com.
GAME OF THRONES | One of the most hated characters in all of Westeros has scored an action figure from Dark Horse Deluxe. The “Game of Thrones” character, portrayed by Jack Gleeson in the HBO series, will be immortalized in plastic by the company as an 8-inch figure hitting stores March 11.
SONS OF ANARCHY | As the final season of “Sons of Anarchy” rolls on, fans of the series might want to get their hands on a collectible or two to celebrate their favorite series. Mezco unveiled their most recent figure this week, Gemma Teller as played by Katey Sagal. The latest addition to Mezco’s line of 6-inch figures comes with a skateboard and ships next March.
LEGEND OF KORRA | Nickelodeon and Dark Horse Deluxe teamed up to pay homage to the star of “Avatar: The Last Airbender.” This statue of a statue seen in the follow-up series “The Legend of Korra” stands 9 inches tall and will ship to stores on January 28, 2015.
STREET FIGHTER | Pop Culture Shock wants E. Honda fans to have all kinds of options when it comes to buying their 1:4 scale statue of the “Street Fighter” character. In addition to the regular version, they will also have a pair of exclusives dubbed Ozeki and Kabuki. The former features two different heads while the latter features his alternate costume from “Street Fighter IV.” All three versions will ship next spring.
MEGA MAN | First 4 Figures continues to launch new and interesting statue lines based on classic video game franchises. This week they unveiled the first Mega Man piece called Running Mega Man complete with a treadmill base from Metal Man’s level in “Mega Man 2.” The 13-inch-tall piece will also have a F4F exclusive version that comes with a variety of well placed LED lights all over. Both ship early next year.
E.T. | The most beloved extra terrestrial around will make his way into Funko’s Pop Vinyl line along with a few friends this September. The new line includes E.T., Elliott and Gertie as they appeared in Steven Spielberg’s 1982 classic.
MEZCO MYSTERY BOX | Finally, Mezco decided to celebrate Halloween early by offering up an All Treat-No Trick Mystery Box. For $20, purchasers will get at least $40 worth of items based on Universal Monsters, Chucky, The Living Dead dolls and more. Some boxes will even contain $200 worth of merch. Only 310 boxes are being offered and they will ship in October.
