Pathfinders Leonardo da Vinci Premium Aerial Screw (Helicopter Flying Machine) Wood Model Kit

One of Leonardo’s most iconic images, the Aerial Screw (also known as the Helicopter) illustrates the ingenuity of da Vinci, and indicates his obsession with flying. While this idea may never have got off the ground, it gave us an insight into the different ways in which Leonardo considered the challenge of human powered flying, and defines him as an inventor and visionary well ahead of his time.

While it is often referred to as a helicopter, the premise of the lift to make it rise is more like Archimedes Screw than the rotors of a helicopter. This model uses one of the bevel gears he drew in his codices and creates a nice 2 to 1 increase in speed of the crankshaft, so the mast spins quickly, illustrating the manner in which this machine would have worked.

The kit features pieces that are drilled and pegged for strength, the canopy and support structure are removable for experimenting, and lots of interesting information about how it works. Kit stands about 15″ tall and 9″ across.

The Premium edition of Harvest Moon: The Lost Valley comes with a plush Snow Bunny

Fans of Natsume Inc.’s farming sim series, Harvest Moon, and its spin-offs know that one of the big bonuses for pre-ordering the games are the adorable animal plushes, especially the larger ones in their Premium bundles. These lovable stuffed critters are made by SOTA Toys and, speaking from my previous experience with the company, very high quality. The next game to receive the Premium bundle treatment is Harvest Moon: The Lost Valley, which will be accompanied by a Snow Bunny plush. The bunny seems to be quite a bit larger than the puppy plush offered as a bonus for pre-ordering at major retailers (the dog is available at the Natsume store as well). I would wager about 6-inches tall, not including its ears.

The Harvest Moon: The Lost Valley Premium bundle is exclusive to Natsume’s online store and costs US$39.99, just US$10 more than the standard edition. For a plush this cute, that is a steal! The bundle is a pre-order, set to ship on November 4.

Pre-order Thor: The Dark World 22-inch Premium Format™ Figure by Sideshow

You can pre-order this from Sideshow Collectibles

“He will bring order to the Nine Realms and then, yes, he will be king.”

He promised he would return, and now he has! From the Marvel Cinematic Universe, Sideshow Collectibles is proud to present the Thor: The Dark World Premium Format™ Figure.

Based on Chris Hemsworth’s thunderous return as the Mighty Avenger, Thor has sworn to protect Earth and the Nine Realms once again, this time from an ancient enemy that threatens to plunge the universe into darkness. Embarking on his most perilous journey yet, the Asgardian warrior brandishes the legendary Mjolnir, and dons his magnificent newly designed armor, complete with dramatic flowing red cape. As the God of Thunder prepares to unleash a storm of fury, the very earth quakes beneath his feet, and he must find a way to save us all.

Now that we have seen Chris Hemsworth as Thor, can you imagine anyone else playing the role? When actors play their role so well, do they get stereotyped and boxed in, so much so that they become typecast and are unable to take on other acting roles? Besides playing Thor in the Marvel Studios films Thor (2011), The Avengers (2012), Thor: The Dark World (2013) and the upcoming Avengers: Age of Ultron (2015), Hemsworth has also appeared in Star Trek (2009), A Perfect Getaway (2009), The Cabin in the Woods (2012), Snow White and the Huntsman (2012), Red Dawn (2012) and Rush (2013).

20 inches tall ‘Hellfire Club’ Emma Frost Premium Format™ Figure by Sideshow Collectibles

You can preorder this from Sideshow Collectibles

“Of course I’m a threat. Why? Did you think for a moment that I wasn’t?”

Sideshow Collectibles is proud to present the alluring Emma Frost Premium Format™ Figure. First introduced in Marvel’s acclaimed Dark Phoenix Saga storyline as the White Queen of the elite Hellfire Club, ice-cold Emma Frost began her career as one of the X-men’s hottest adversaries.

Beautifully sculpted in 1:4 scale, Emma Frost coolly assumes her position as the White Queen atop a Hellfire Club themed base, boasting supreme confidence and a quiet mystique. Featuring interchangeable portraits with long and short hairstyles, Emma’s piercing blue eyes reveal even more than her scant attire. Dressed to the nines in her provocative all-white corset, thigh-high boots, and fur-trimmed cape, the drop dead gorgeous White Queen is not to be underestimated…

From her initial appearance as the White Queen of the Hellfire Club, Emma Frost appeared as an X-Men villain over the years. Emma Frost first appeared in the famous storyline “The Dark Phoenix Saga”, in Uncanny X-Men #129. The character was created by writer Chris Claremont and artist / co-writer John Byrne. Claremont was inspired to create the Hellfire Club after seeing the episode “A Touch of Brimstone” from the television show The Avengers, where spy duo John Steed and Emma Peel infiltrate a criminal, hedonistic, underground society. Emma Frost was specifically inspired by Emma Peel, played by actress Diana Rigg, who famously dons a provocative corset, collar, and boots and becomes the “”Queen of Sin”. After The Dark Phoenix saga, Emma Frost frequently appeared in other storylines in Uncanny X-Men and the original volume of the New Mutants alongside her Hellions.

Bow down to the White Queen: Sideshow’s Premium Format Emma Frost up for pre-order

Sideshow’s 1/4-scale Emma Frost Premium Format Figure is now available for pre-order. The figure features two interchangeable heads (or just hair parts?): one for the modern long-haired Emma Frost and another for the classic villainous Hellfire Club original White Queen.

The Premium Format Emma Frost looks great and I love the fact that Sideshow thought to include a variation of the older, shorter hairstyle.The pose, sculpting, and mix of materials all look great, leaving me to wonder why they waited so long to do something this cool. Sure, it’s no Sentinel Maquette, but it’s still easily among Sideshow’s nicest X-Men collectibles.

Sideshow’s 1/4-scale Emma Frost Premium Format Figure can be pre-ordered for US$370 and is slated for an April release.

Check out this 25.5 inch tall Wonder Woman Premium Format Figure by Sideshow Collectibles

You can pre-order from Sideshow Collectibles

Joining her powerful allies of the Justice League, Sideshow Collectibles is proud to present the magnificent Wonder Woman Premium Format™ Figure.

Handcrafted with austere beauty and fierce determination, Princess Diana of Themyscira dons her iconic costume of stars and stripes, sworn to protect the world and uphold her mantle as Wonder Woman. Granted divine superhuman powers and superior combat skills, the warrior princess is ready to gracefully accept any challenge, armed with her golden Lasso of Truth, indestructible bracelets, and tiara. She carries a long spear across her shoulders, and her iconic shield grasped firmly at her side – but above all, she carries the Amazons’ message of peace and justice.

Fans of the mythic DC Comics superheroine are sure to find the Wonder Woman Premium Format™ Figure an essential addition to their collection!
Perhaps this is how Wonder Woman should look on film. There have been so many versions of Batman and Superman live on screen (big and small) but there’s only one Lynda Carter Wonder Woman from the 1975–1979 Wonder Woman TV series. Since Carter’s television series, studios struggled to introduce a new live-action Wonder Woman to audiences. In 2013 it was announced that Israeli actress Gal Gadot would portray Wonder Woman in the 2016 film “Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice.” Will she measure up? Only time will tell.
In the meantime, check out these preview pictures of  Sideshow Collectibles 25.5 inch tall Wonder Woman Premium Format Figure. Scroll down to see the rest of the pictures. Click on them for bigger and better views.

DC’s trinity usually refers to Batman, Wonder Woman and Superman coming together to battle evil as one force for good. So here’s Sideshow Collectibles DC Comics trinity.
