S.H. MonsterArts debuts fully articulated 1996 Gamera

Gamera is definitely not like the other tortoises. First conceived of in 1965 by Daiei Motion Picture Company as an answer to Toho Studios’ Godzilla, Gamera has become a Japanese icon and representative of the “monster boom” of the 1960s. A prehistoric, shelled creature who feeds on petroleum products to be able to fly and breathe fire, Gamera is quite the creation.

Showcasing the aesthetic of the ’90s heisei series, this five-inch 1996 Gamera from Tamashii Nations’ S.H. MonsterArts line is a must-have. Featuring detailed articulation and design by kaiju sculptor Tomoo Haraguchi, Gamera is perfect for posing. This set comes with plasma effect parts with supports, a flying pose support piece, interchangeable flying appendage parts and a display base.

Clayface from Batman: Arkham Asylum is the ultimate shape-shifting villain

DC Comics’ most renowned changeling is, shall we say, down to earth. Formed from clay to reach an infinite combination of transmutation possibilities, Clayface is a bad guy in his own category. The original Clayface, also known as Basil Karlo, was a B-movie actor who adopted the persona of a character he played in a horror movie in order to plunge into a life of crime. Now we can see why IGN named him the 73rd greatest villain in comic-book history — that’s nothing to sneeze at, right?

Now from the acclaimed 2009 video game Batman: Arkham Asylum comes DC’s 13-inch version of the muddy foe, complete with accessories and interchangeable arms to counter Batman and his allies within the confines of the spooky Arkham institution. Criminally insane or not, this 13-inch Clayface can’t hurt you from his place on your shelf. Just watch your back while you sleep.

We'd like to see an alternate storyline wherein he forms a '90s alt-rock band called Jars of Clayface.

Pre-order this 1/6 scale Heisenberg from Breaking Bad and Sideshow/Threezero

“Stay out of my territory” — this is what wayward chemist Walter White AKA Heisenberg once uttered menacingly, as we witnessed him progress from novice law-breaker to full-blown tough. But we really can’t stay out of his personal space, especially when he’s about to come through in Sideshow/Threezero Sixth Scale format as a special treat for Breaking Bad fans.

Due for delivery later this year is the 12-inch incarnation of White, whose highlights include tailored clothing, various accessories and a purposeful, striking resemblance to the on-screen character.

Aesthetic: angry suburban dad who just found their 16-year-old's weed stash.

Cross over to the Dark Side with the Star Wars Episode VI Sideshow Darth Vader

We’re excited to announce this upcoming Sideshow Premium Format figure, set to be rendered in 26 inches of precision and detail. The craftsmanship on these types of creations is nothing short of astounding, the result of collaborative work across a spectrum of artisans. This Lord of the Sith is no different.

You can re-construct one of the most nail-bitingly significant duels in film history as Darth Vader is poised mid-step, descending the steps of his figure base reminiscent of the Death Star. Naturally, he carries his LED light-up blood-red lightsaber, ready to face his nemesis in a battle of galactic proportions for the Empire.

All mechanical muscle: Pacific Rim and Sideshow’s Striker Eureka statue

Most people would agree that when your entire continent is under attack from a gigantic monster, you should probably build another gigantic monster to fight it. Right? That’s exactly what Striker Eureka from Pacific Rim was slated to accomplish, with the added bonus of it being the last Jaeger constructed and the only Mark-5 Jaeger ever. All the stops were pulled out for this dude in the movie, and so Sideshow has done the same with this 19-inch deluxe statue figure.

The Skyscraping Soldier of Australia is ready to slice through both bone and steel with Sting-Blades. As this statue was crafted as a collaboration between award-winning director Guillermo del Toro and Sideshow Collectibles, the Striker Eureka looks like it just stepped out of the silver screen. Behold his intricately designed armor and paint deco, underscored by red and blue LED light-up features. Get your hands on this gorgeous statue before it’s too late!

Kaijus are no match for this big boy.

Sailor Neptune by S.H. Figuarts harnesses the spirit of the sea

The undersea Sailor Senshi with psychic and mirror accessory powers is one of the most ethereal and enigmatic of all the Scouts. The Soldier of Embrace, also known as Sailor Neptune, one of the teenage Japanese schoolgirls who double as freedom fighters on behalf of the Solar System. Both sophisticated and quick to anger, she’s a bit of an anti-hero. But when tempered and aided by her partner Sailor Uranus, she’s able to whirl about the cosmos enacting justice.

Check out this six-inch Sailor Neptune figure by Tamashii Nations and its S.H. Figuarts division, a Japanese exclusive for the Tamashii Web Shop. She’s been made specially available to North American collectors, so aren’t we lucky? Completing her set-up are three interchangeable face parts, folded arm parts, praying hand parts, six sets of interchangeable hand parts, a Deep Aqua Mirror accessory and a display stand.

"Guarded by Neptune, planet of the deep blue sea. I'm the soldier of affinity, Sailor Neptune!"
