We're getting closer and closer to the release of Injustice 2, and NetherRealm Studios is sharing more and more of what to expect from the upcoming fighting game sequel. While we've been limited to a few character teasers these past few weeks, new story details have emerged thanks to the "Shattered Alliances" trailer shown off this week. Of course, the trailer does more than give us a hint of what Superman's been up to in the years since his imprisonment, it also hints at new characters and stages we might see this May.

Once upon a time I didn't know what a Nendoroid was. That was a time when my wallet was a lot safer from the cutest import collectibles on the market. Good Smile did not have much new at Toy Fair this year, but the company did have a handful of products I hadn't yet seen in person in finished form. Though it would have been better to see a lot more of the upcoming Figma and Nendoroid pieces coming in 2017, Good Smile's limited offerings didn't disappoint.

Magikarp Finally Gets Its Due (Along With Eevee, Mew, And Some Lightning Mouse) In The New Pokemon Gallery Figures

Pokémon Gallery Figures, via Pokémon Center

Real talk: Magikarp rules. Of all the Pokémon who made their debut 21 years ago, it's the one that I think we can all truly identify with, a literal fish out of water who flails around uselessly, but then one day, one day, through hard work and persistence, turns into a flying laser-breathing dragon that can devastate the land in its rage. Or maybe I've just revealed too much about myself.

Either way, Magikarp is finally joining the pantheon of Generation 1 superstars in the Pokémon Center's new line of Gallery Figures. The first four hit shelves with a set of incredible little figures of Eevee, Mew, and, of course, Pikachu.

Last year, McFarlane Toys reworked its strategy a bit. Instead of focusing on a few longrunning lines, the company switched to a primary series that encompassed all its licensed properties. Dubbed Color Tops, each wave mixes up comic, gaming, television and film characters into a larger collection. While the big guns like The Walking Dead still make up the primary focus, now things like Mass Effect, Attack on Titan, and even Spawn all fall under one banner. Add in building sets, and you have quite a bit of promising content coming from McFarlane in 2017.

Creativity abounds at Toy Fair every year, but you can always count on Square Enix to show up with some of the most clever and inspired action figures. Though they might not have the volume output of some of the larger companies at the show, Square Enix certainly brings the quality. This year was no exception with a couple of great new Marvel Variants planned, as well as even more Tetsuya Nomura DC Comics designs.

You can always count on a number of surprises from NECA at Toy Fair, but this year, I don't think very many collectors could have expected the announcements the company unveiled. While new Predator and Alien toys are as expected, you never know what the mad geniuses at NECA might have in store for the likes of Evil Dead, the Marvel Cinematic Universe, and the other dozens of gaming and movie licenses it holds. All you can be sure about is that you will come away from the NECA booth ready to find a new source of income to pay for all the things you're going to need. Like the new Batman vs Aliens and Predator sets.

‘Berserk and the Band of the Hawk’ Review (PlayStation 4)

Omega Force
Omega Force

Koei Tecmo’s mission to introduce new audiences to famous anime series continues with Berserk and The Band of the Hawk, chronicling the life of lone wolf mercenary Guts and his many battles. Berserk is a button masher’s dream, with hordes of enemies on-screen at one time and combo counters reaching into the thousands. For Koei Tecmo and developer Omega Force it’s unfortunately a step backward, as the innovation in movement that came with Attack on Titan has been replaced with the familiar scheme, which is a disappointment.

You Will Never Need Another Toy in Your Life as Much as This Nendoroid Tracer

Good Smile
Good Smile

For all the delight fans have gotten from Blizzard's Overwatch, there's been very little in the way of collectibles to show your appreciation outside of the game itself. Though a few Funko Pops have made the rounds, and some blind box figures are just now hitting the market, no true action figures from the amazingly designed world of Overwatch have been released. Thankfully, the good people over at Good Smile have managed to ignite hope where once there was none.

Coming this summer will be a Nendoroid based on Overwatch's "mascot" Tracer. The adorable British hero will be bringing her style and charm to the chibi world, and could just be the tip of the Overwatch Nendoroid iceberg.
