Massive 22-inch Smaug figure to invade your shelves soon, displacing whatever dwarf figures you own

Huge news, everyone! The Bridge Direct will be a making a huge Smaug figure (The Hobbit: Battle of the Five Armies). The figure, which sports a 22-inch wingspan and is apparently 21-inches tall (although I’m no sure how), won’t be anywhere near to scale with Bridge Direct’s previous offerings but it’ll still be a humongous figure.

Smaug will unfortunately only feature a paltry ten points of articulation; the joints seem to be at his knees, hips, mid-section of wings, base of neck, and mid-section of neck. The remaining joints might be the shoulders or at his head and base of the tail, but it’s hard to tell. The wings and tail appear feature a “wire core” which is listed as allowing for additional poses (meaning bendy?). Granted, I suppose the major selling point here is the size since Smaug should tower over much your collection.

The figure is billed as coming with an as-yet-unrevealed 1.5-inch figure and accessory, which a poster over at Toyark believes to be Bard and a black arrow (although a Bilbo Baggins probably wouldn’t be a bad guess, either). Regardless of who that mystery character is, the figure still probably won’t be scale with the massive movie version of the dragon. Did I mention that this Smaug is going to be big?

The Bridge Direct’s Smaug will be limited to 3,000 pieces which each box featuring an individually numbered sticker. He can be pre-ordered for US$70 and is slated for a December release. You know, because nothing says Christmas like a dragon.

ACI Toys ACI-19 1/6 scale Warriors series: Thracian General 12-inch figure is coming soon

The first historical record about the Thracians is found in the Iliad, where they are described as allies of the Trojans in the Trojan War against the Greeks. Thracians were regarded by other people as warlike, ferocious, and bloodthirsty. They were seen as “barbarians” by ancient Greeks and Romans. Plato in his Republic considers them, along with the Scythians, extravagant and high spirited and his Laws considers them war-like nations grouping them with Celts, Persians, Scythians, Iberians and Carthaginians.

Spartacus was a Thracian enslaved by Rome, who led a large slave uprising in Southern Italy in 73–71 BC. Before being defeated, his army of escaped gladiators and slaves defeated several Roman legions in what is known as the Third Servile War.

This will be an upcoming release from ACI Toys: ACI-19 1/6 Warriors series: Thracian General 12-inch figure. ACI pretty much specialize in the warriors from the late BC / early AD period. They have released a 1/6 scale Roman Gladiator “Flamma” 12-inch Figure in the past (reviewed HERE and HERE) and followed that up with the disastrous “Total Rome!” 1/6 scale Roman Legionary Optio 12-inch action figure (reviewed HERE, HERE and HERE)
This looks pretty nice and brings to men the exceptional Hot Toys Movie Masterpiece Series MMS114 1/6 scale King Leonidas 12-inch collectible figure from the movie “300”. Check out the reviews and pictures posted on my toy blog HERE, HERE and HERE.

figma Motoko Kusanagi may soon Stand Alone on your shelf

Max Factory’s figma Motoko Kusanagi (Stand Alone Complex ver.) is currently available for pre-order.

figma Motoko was first unveiled at Winter WonFes earlier this year where it received the expected amount of excitement. While I was also really hyped at the time, I can’t help but think that the timing is a little off. I mean, where was this figure five or more years ago when I really wanted a Motoko figure for my shelf? Sure, an articulate SAC version of Motoko has long been on my figure wish list (the CM’s Corp one just didn’t cut it), but my want level has gone from 11 down to a 5 over the years.

That’s not to say that figma Motoko doesn’t look great; on the contrary, Max Factor has done a wonderful job on the sculpting and paint (although the standard face is so-so). The official images feature some cool poses. She comes with three faces (standard, shouting, and smiling) and two weapons (Seburo A5 and Seburo C26A). However… it’s just not as exciting now.

Given that the SAC design is probably my favorite Motoko design (as much as I enjoyed the original Ghost in the Shell I never liked its art and I wasn’t a fan of the manga) and that the series was, at one point, among my favorite anime, I feel like I’ll probably wind up buying a copy. I just wish that Max Factory had released it at a time when I both more into the show and more into the figma line (not to mention when the line was more affordable).

Max Factory’s figma Motoko Kusanagi can be pre-ordered for ¥4,800 and is slated for a December release.

The hunt for two exclusive Pop! Deathstrokes will begin soon

Teen Titans fans may recall that, during my Pop! Raven review, I mentioned that a Pop! New 52 Deathstroke had been announced. I wasn’t aware at the time that this Diamond Comics exclusive figure was going to be available in both a normal deco and a really neat shiny, metallic version. On top of that, I certainly didn’t know there was going to be an unmasked version as well!

This Diamond Comics exclusive will be carried by select comic stores and so forth who order the figure directly from Diamond Comics; basically you can probably pre-order it through your local comic shop or, for those of us not comic shop-adjacent, through several online retailers. This is the first time that Deathstroke has been offered in the Pop! line.

Deathstroke, who started off as an New Teen Titans villain, has enjoyed a massive surge in popularity in recently thanks to his television appearances in Arrow and video game appearances which include Batman: Arkham Origins, Injustice: Gods Among Us, and DC Universe vs. Mortal Kombat, among others. He also has a starring role in the animated film Son of Batman (as well being the president in the Crime Syndicate’s world in Justice League: Crisis on Two Earths).

While I’m curious how the unmasked Deathstroke may turn out, I definitely love the look of the metallic Deathstroke. The metallic deco really makes that orange pop. Both versions are slated for a July release and will retail for US$12. The unmasked version is listed as a SDCC exclusive so that should be a July release as well.
