Titans Return Sixshot Now Reaching US Retail Locations

Tformers - 24 February, 2017 - 18:46
In short order after finally becoming available in online retail, the first in-store sightings in the US have popped up for Leader Class Sixshot. The first report from Megablah shows Sixshot in a Target in an unspecified location in California - small area to check, we know. Subsequently we've heard of at least one other sighting in a Portland, OR Target. It looks like Target is the place to check right now, especially on the west coast. And if you're wondering if it's worth getting out looking, check out our review of Titans Return Sixshot! Keep reading for photo proof of the California sighting.

Masterpiece Cheetor Side by Side Comparison Photos - Original Toy & MP Optimus Primal

Tformers - 24 February, 2017 - 18:34
With the official release date just about upon us, we'll be sure to see plenty of Masterpiece Cheetor in the next little while. But in the meantime we've got a few extra photos to share with you offering some direct comparisons you might be interested in. Mainly looking at Cheetor's relative scale with MP Optimus Primal, which might be indicating Cheetor to be a tiny bit bigger than the show models had it, but generally right. And as an extra, Alfes2010 snapped a photo of MP Cheetor next to the original toy ...mostly imitating Mutant Head action, but it's a good look at both ends of the Cheetor spectrum.

GHOST IN THE SHELL Franchise Overview

SciFi Japan - 24 February, 2017 - 17:34

Author: Andrew Nguyen Ever since the release of the movie GHOST IN THE SHELL (攻殻機動隊, Kookaku Kidootai) in 1995, many anime fans consider the franchise to be one of the prime examples of Japanese animation at its best. Produced by Production I.G, the GHOST IN THE SHELL series boasts exceptional animation as it explores a possible future that has humanity rely very intensely upon technology to function in society. This comes in the form of cyborgs, androids, and the possibility of interfacing directly with the World Wide Web by connecting one’s own body (with suitable modifications) to computers and other electronics. Such capabilities leave the human body itself vulnerable to hacking by criminals in the same way that one would hack a computer. In a philosophical sense, the animated versions have raised the question of what it means to be human through the discussions of “ghosts” that sentient beings have. Continued...

Funatic of the Week: Vera Dalzell!

Funko - 24 February, 2017 - 14:59

Vera Dalzell
United Kingdom

What Funko lines do you collect? How many pieces are in your collection?

Funko Pop!s, ReAction, I just got my first Dorbz too!. A rough figure would be 150-200.

How long have you been a collector?

Since 2012, only started getting more serious mid-2016.

What are your favorite fandoms?

Disney! Anything from my childhood, the 80s and 90s.

What was your first Funko item?

The Ursula Funko Pop!

What is your favorite Funko piece in your collection?

Still the Ursula Funko Pop!

Tell us your favorite Funko story!

I received my first Pop! from my brother as a birthday present back in 2012, the Ursula Pop! (it's still my favourite and most prized Pop!), and he also gave me the Wizard Of Oz set for Christmas. I got myself the Snow White set subsequently but I never really got into collecting till mid-2016. Since then my collection has seriously grown and I've collected most of the older Pop!s that I missed out on (still a few grail ones to go which I have to save up for) and have started on the new collections. I mainly collect Disney or lines that I am familiar with like those from my childhood in the 80s/90s.

Collecting Funko has been a crazy experience, in a good way! My husband has also gotten into it and while we collect different lines (he's more into Marvel/DC/etc), it has brought us closer together.
