Yoko Real Image Version (よーこ りあるいめーじばーじょん) By Max Factory

May 19, 2009

Gurren Lagaan

Gurren Lagann takes place in a future where human beings have been forced under Earth’s surface and live in isolated subterranean civilizations. These “villages” have no contact with the surface world or other villages. Because frequent earthquakes damage infrastructure, the villages must constantly extend deeper into the earth — individuals relegated to this task are known as “diggers”.

The discovery of large robots, the ‘Gurren’, terrorising the surface of the earth, and the use of a small drill key that can be used to activate a small robot named ‘Lagann’ to defeat them joins the fates of the three main characters of this series: Simon, Kamina and Yoko.

Now, Max Factory has produced a realistic take on Yoko, the sniper of Team Gurren. As a slightly different image to the original work, Yoko has been sculpted in a more realistic manner, creating a new exquisite presence.

Yoko

From the details on her tight hot-pants and knee-socks to the smallest of details on her fingertips and facial expression – Yoko has been brought to life as a zealous 1/6 scale PVC figure.

A visor is also included and can be attached to create a more stylish image. There are many Yoko figures around, but this is one with a very distinct charm that collectors are bound to fall in love with.

Retailing at ¥9800 to be released in September 2009, this is certainly one hot babe to look out for in the coming months!

Possible Large Scale Ironman Piece From Sideshow At SDCC 2009?

April 13, 2009

Spotted on the internet, an excerpt of a Q&A session from Sideshow Collectibles:

Q: Any chance of a 1:1 scale Iron Man statue based on the movie (like the one Sideshow displayed at the San Diego Comic-Con last year)? I know there is a great deal of interest on the boards for this piece!

A: We do have an exciting large-scale Iron Man product in development, which we plan to unveil at SDCC. It is not a 1:1 scale piece, but we think you’ll be impressed.

After hearing about this piece of juicy news, iWantThatToy cracked some heads and this is what we found:

making-of-the-ironman

Yummy.

Could this possibly be the large scale piece that Sideshow is talking about?

So we cracked a few more heads and came up with even more pictures!

Gawd Dayum!!!

Gawd Dayum!!!

It’s certainly going to be an expensive year for collectors. These are about the best statues I’ve seen this year.

SDCC will be interesting indeed!

World of Warcraft – Frostmourne Replica

April 11, 2009

If you’ve ever played Warcraft (the RTS) and/or Wrath of the Lich King, you’ll have heard of Frostmourne, the Legendary weapon of the Lich King.

Mmm...nice lava lamp...

Mmm...nice lava lamp...

So, for all you warcraft fanatics out there, here’s something cool, the Frostmourne LIFESIZE (yes, you read correct, this is 47 inches of cold, hard steel) replica:

frostmourne-replica-2

Whoever takes up this blade shall wield power eternal. Just as the blade rends flesh, so must power scar the spirit.

Such was the warning given to all who would seek to wield Frostmourne, the most powerful runeblade in all of known existence.

Evil...

Wicked!!

Weighing almost 8kg, this replica is no butter knife.
Gotta love cool looking squiggles.

Gotta love cool looking squiggles.

 With a price tag to match its size, I don’t think I’ll ever be able to own this beauty. Congratulations to everyone out there who got their hands on one.

*wistful*
