We've seen Cloud Strife, Sephiroth and even Lightning in the Static Arts lineups, but Square Enix's Vincent Valentine is set for pre-sale....today!
Modeled after his Final Fantasy VII: Advent Children design, this 'statue' sits at almost 15cm tall. He sits atop a rickety column, the 3-barreled Cerberus clutched in his hand. The coloring, sculptwork and pose is absolutely fantastic! Very happy with this one!
If you're a fan of Vincent or of Final Fantasy VII in general, this would be an awesome addition to your collection if you have the $40 to spend.
Mini arcade figures seem to be all the rage these days, and Freeing is joining in with their latest release of five 1/12 scale arcade cabinet miniatures.
This set of 5 includes Tank Battalion, PAC-MAN, Galaga, Galaxian and Rally-X. Each ones stands at approximately 14cm and use the original arcade cabinet designs right down to the joysticks and button placements.
Set to release January 2017 for a whopping $30+ each, major collector's better start saving over the holidays!
Sentinel is well known for it's 4Inch-Nel series; and has even graced that series with Mega Man characters including Rockman and Rockman.EXE. To kick off its 4Inch-Nel Lite series, Sentinel gives us Lan Hikari, the protagonist of the Mega Man Battle Network franchise.
Unlike its articulating counterparts, the Lite series are static in their poses. But that doesn't mean the quality is any less. This entry is proof that their sculptwork, paint job and gratuitous accessories are still here to impress! And speaking of accessories, this figure comes with:
- Mr. Prog (with articulating head)
- Paladin Sword
- 2 facial expressions
- Interchangeable Hands
- RIO Board (stand)
If you've been collecting the other releases from Sentinel, then this is a natural buy. And if not - pick it up anyway. It's awesome!

Manufacturer Shine brings us another Itazura Bank installment - and this time, it's Pikachu!
This latest release takes the features of a Pokéball with Pikachu hiding inside. When placing coins on the yellow base, whirring sounds are heard followed by Pikachu peaking out and pawing the coin back into the Pokéball.
The bank accepts 500 yen coins and holds approximately 40 coins. Despite his electric powers; two AA batteries are still required to operate the banks and are included....just kidding...sigh....they never are.
Sega officially announced the Collector's Edition of Sonic Mania today, and it's WAY PAST COOL!
Looks like they've only announced it for North America so far, and no price-point yet, but hopefully clarifications on both are right around the corner. Until then...."I'm waaaiting".
If you have the Mega Man Mega Buster Gun Replica, you already know how this works, but for those who don't, here's a short tutorial.
Turn it on and you'll hear a power up sound and watch the power meter fill up. Reach in, grab the handle, and you're ready for action. Quickly pull the trigger and you'll hear a single fire sound and the end will flash. Hold in the trigger, though, and you'll watch the power meter fill and the sound intensify until you release the trigger, firing a charged shot! When you are finished vanquishing evil robots for the day, switch the Proto Buster off and enjoy the power down lights and sounds. There's a new sheriff in Monsteropolis - and it's you!

Were YOU one of the unfortunate collector's who missed out on Square Enix's "Cloud Strife" Play Arts Kai when it was released back in April 2015? If so, worry not! Cloud....is back!
This fully articulating, 28cm PVC figure is an exact recast of the original release. Garbed in his traditional Advent Children outfit, he comes equipped with the Fusion Sword, a six-piece sword assembly with all manner of badass blades.
This isn't hitting North American shelves (that we know of), so get out to those hobby shops or hit up those J-figure sites, and get ready to drop $150 for Final Fantasy VII's main protagonist. Official sale date is.....TODAY!
Homefront: The Revolution is the first-person shooter sequel to 2011's Homefront. And it releases TODAY!
So why does this belong in the Collector's Corner? Well because it's Homefront...the same game that brought us the Collector's Edition...and the Resistance Edition...and the Don't Tread on Me Edition....and the Voice of Freedom Edition....so it's only natural that this installment is treating its die-hard fans with the "Goliath Edition".
This will include an exclusive Collector's Steelbook, a 32-page concept-art book, as a remote controlled replica "Goliath" Drone, with working lights and six-wheel suspension. For fans of Homefront, this will be an awesome collectible for your games room.
The Doom Collector's Edition hits shelves today! And while it doesn't include much in terms of merchandise, there is 'one' item that is sure to please.
In addition to the exclusive Collector's Steelcase, there is a beautiful 12" Revenant Statue with an LED-lit base. And inside the base....an internal slow-spinning turbine! Now Revenants have been around since the days of Doom II, but this newest installment seems to use them as the poster-monster for the game - and I'm glad they do! From the shoulder-mounted missile launchers to the intestines hanging loosely in their abdomens, this makes for a horrifically awesome piece for any game shelf.
Nintendo's heavy-hitter franchise, Splatoon, has announced today that 3 sets of Playing Cards will be released in Japan.
The first "Standard" pattern includes a black/grey squid background with the usual suits, and (in some cases) characters. The second "Coordinate" pattern includes CG images of the characters from the game with teams associated with each number/suit. Finally, the "Buki" (Weapon) set features the different weapons of the game with stylish designs of the characters.
Each of the sets will retail at approximately $11; a little steep for most casual players, but totally worth it for collectors.
Pre-orders for the long-awaited Varia Suit Samus from statue veteran First4Figures start today.
Sculpted by Salvador Felix and Kaushik Manna after her appearance in Metroid Prime 2: Echoes, this statue stands at over 20" tall. Instantly recognisable from games as far back as the original Metroid game on the NES, the Varia Suit has remained a series mainstay. Captured in a stunning ¼ scale in hand painted polystone, Samus stands upon a base inspired by the series insignia.
The Exclusive Version of the Varia Suit has LEDs which have been integrated throughout the entire statue, bringing it to life exactly as seen in the games. This is the second piece in the ¼ scale Metroid Master Arts series. If you're a fan of the franchise, this is a must-have for your Game Room shelf.
Well, today mark's the beginning of Nathan Drake's newest adventure in Uncharted 4: A Thief's End. And leave it to Naughty Dog to release multiple "Collector's Editions".
The first is the Special Edition. This bundle includes a Collector's Steelbook (of course), a 48-page hardcover art book by Dark Horse, a Naughty Dog & Pirate Sigil Sticker Sheet. There's also a bunch of digital stuff...but that's for a different blog ;)
The crème de la crème however, is included in the Libertalia Collector's Edition - a 12" Nathan Drake statue.
Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment is getting ready to release 3 new entries tomorrow for Wave 5 of its LEGO Dimensions Fun Packs. These will be based off of Ghostbusters, DC Comics and LEGO Ninjago.

You may remember that last week, Pokken Tournament would have a Pikachu-themed Controller released by Hori in Japan this June. Well, we've just received confirmation that GameStop is getting them exclusively in North America.
The controller is fairly basic in its design, with the standard A, B, X, Y face buttons, as well as 4 mid-controller buttons to reflect Start, Select, ZL and ZR. The final two buttons are mounted on the shoulders. Pikachu is silhouetted in the middle with his name etched across the centre. While this may work well for Pokken, the absence of analog controls and the small ZL and ZR buttons may make it difficult to use with other games.
The controller is scheduled to be released on July 31st in very limited quantities, only being carried by select GameStops in USA and Canada. For those of you with a Wii U, this is definitely a fantastic purchase!
This just in! Capcom has heard the clamouring of the fans, and has created a full, wearable replica of the Proto Man Helmet. Best of all, it's available starting TODAY over at the Capcom Store.
Originally priced at $200, they've slashed their prices down to $160 - so now's the time to grab it. Not only that, but they've also promised that each order made through their store will also come with an 'authentic Proto Man scarf" to complete the costume. How awesome is that!?
This is an awesome piece for any collector, so get on over to the Capcom Store to order yours now!
You may remember back in March when Square Enix teased us with their lineup of Gladiolus, Ignis and Prompto for their Play Arts Kai series. Well today, they greeted us with a sweet surprise - Noctis Lucis Caelum from the upcoming, sure-to-be awesome, Final Fantasy XV.
Fully articulating and beautifully sculpted, this PVC figure will come with several hand options as well as two interchangeable swords. He'll stand at 27cm tall, aligning himself with the proportions of the rest of the lineup.
Pre-orders begin TODAY so take out your wallets, cuz this one will set you back $130.
This story may sound a little "Farfetch'd" <--- see what I did there....but we've just received word from Viz Media that they will be...(porting?)...over The Pokémon Cookbook to North America.
This book of 35 mouth-watering dishes was originally released in 2009 in Japan; and is currently being translated for a December 6 release. This will include recipes for entrees and snacks; from Pokéball Sushi to Mashed Meowth Potatoes.
I don't know about you guys; but if there's one thing that can get me to cook, it'd be this book! Just look at that cover; who wouldn't want to dive into that rice-Pikachu face and those "Unown" sides!?
Let's hope they have a good recipe for some Bulbas'mores!
For those of you who were able to attend Joint Festival 3....damn you! For those collectors who weren't (like me), then you'll have no doubt seen some photos of the upcoming merchandise that was announced. And among those announcements, were more details on Wave's "SEGA Astro City 1:12 scale model kits".
Scheduled to release in July for approximately $30/piece, these models will represent some of SEGA's most popular arcade cabinets. This includes Virtua Fighter, Dynamite Deka and Fighting Vipers.
What's more, is that these models are scaled perfectly to fit the new Virtua Fighter Figma figures released by Max Factory earlier this year. Pre-orders are scheduled for this month, so get your wallets ready!
Straight from Dragon Age: Inquisition comes the Iron Bull!
We've all seen Gaming Heads' quality products in the past - and this installment is no exception. Standing at 22.5 inches (57.15cm), this polystone statue is a 1/4 scale representation of the Qunari. Sculpted by Kaushik Manna, the figure's pose is taken directly out of the game; braced upon a sloped stone hill, his great ax clutched tightly in his grasp. For those who are looking to splurge for the Exclusive version, you'll be treated with an iron helmet headpiece that is interchangeable with the original.
The detail is amazing, the expression is spectacular, and the pricetag is.....crazy :) Your looking at $469.99 for the standard edition, and for a measly $30 more, you'll get the exclusive version.
For those of you who have $500 lying around, pre-orders for this figure go out TODAY!
