It’s no trick! Nendoroid Halloween Miku has been fully unveiled

Mamitan has unveiled the fully painted Nendoroid Halloween Miku. As previously reported, the figure will be first available at Miku Expos in Los Angeles and New York City during October.

Nendo Halloween Miku is absolutely adorable, but I have to admit being a little baffled as to why the character is holding a candy cane. I mean, that’s really more of a Christmas thing; I can’t even recall ever seeing candy canes for sale except around the winter holidays. Did they run out of candy corn and think, “Well, this also has ‘candy’ in its name so it’ll be a decent substitute”? Given that the original artwork depicts Miku as being armed with a fencing sword, the fact that she’s instead holding a candy cane is even more unusual.

The character will apparently also come with a holiday-appropriate Jack-o’-Lantern (did you know that Jack-o’-Lanterns were originally made from turnips?) which matches her Halloween-y outfit. She even has these cute little vampire teeth! Although I adore the overall look, I’m going to try waiting in case the design also gets a figma.

 For additional release information and a look at the artwork, be sure to check out our original coverage. Otherwise there’s a full image in the gallery.

Extra! Extra! Read all about it! DC Bombshells Lois Lane unveiled

As pointed out by reader gunmetalgrey, Geoff Johns recently unveiled DC Collectibles’ DC Bombshells Lois Lane via a tweet. Lois Lane, better known as Superman’s long-time love interest in most continuities (albeit their comic marriage (and entire romance) was annulled by the New 52), sports a look reminiscent of a 1920s newsboy. Even more interesting, the “caped crusader” referenced in the newspaper she’s holding isn’t the Man of Steel, but instead an image of the DC Bombshells Supergirl.

It’s definitely a pretty neat design that we can look forward to seeing more of at SDCC. Until then, you can check out the full-sized image in the gallery.

Here’s the moment you’ve all been waiting for: Diamond Select Toys has officially unveiled its Marvel Select The Amazing Spider-Man 2 Spidey through an exclusive preview on Marvel.com. While it seems to solve some problems seen with their ASM1 Spidey, I’m really not sure how to feel about this one.

Flutterina and NA Skeletor unveiled at Comikaze

Matty Collector showed off a Flutterina and a New Adventures of He-Man Skeletor at its Mattypalooza panel during Comikaze 2013. This seems to mark the first time that Flutterina has seen a figure in over twenty years.

Savvier fans than I may have recognized the sword teased at NYCC as belonging to Flutterina. Flutterina appeared in She-Ra: Princess of Power where she fought alongside the Great Rebellion against the Evil Horde. Besides rocking giant butterfly wings, Flutterina apparently had the ability to transform into a butterfly. Flutterina will be the Club Eternia figure for August.

Even more exciting than Flutterina is New Adventures Skeletor who, as an added bonus, comes with an alternate head for Faker. While Skeletor was massively revamped for the cartoon (gaining a much more kid-friendly face in the process), the figure seems to be based more on the original toy than his extremely goofy cartoon counterpart. The alternate Faker head that he comes with is totally awesome but I think I would have preferred an alternate cartoon-accurate New Adventures Skeletor head after having fallen in love with that cartoon all over again. Either way it’s great that we’re getting some form of a Skeletor to go along with New Adventures He-Man and the Evil Space Mutants who have been released in the Masters of the Universe Classics line thus far. NA Skeletor will be Club Eternia’s third quarterly item.
