The Comics Alliance Collection: Cool Stuff We (And You) Got This Week

Untitled-1

The ComicsAlliance staff is a diverse lineup writers, editors, artists, photographers and designers, but before we’re any of those things we’re simply fans. Appreciators. Collectors. Almost every day we share with each other via Instagram all the great books, toys, artwork, apparel, and other beautiful and/or inescapably cool objects we collect almost ceaselessly in comics stores, at conventions, and from all kinds of sources all over North America (and sometimes beyond). Displaying (i.e. showing off) some rad swag typically inspires everyone to one-up their pop-archeologist game in the never ending quest to find awesome stuff, and simply posting the week’s new comics usually causes someone to discover a new title or artist, which in turn inspires a whole new line of excavation.

In the past we’ve published photos of our “con hauls” here on CA and the resulting discussion with readers — i.e. collector kudos — has always been fun, so with the ComicsAlliance Collection we’re going to do it every week. But more importantly, we want to see your collection too. Show us new additions to your collections by using the hashtag #CAcollection on Instagram or tag us @ComicsAlliance and we’ll embed the best stuff alongside our own recent acquisitions.

Toy Review: ‘Street Fighter II’ G.I. Joe Action Figures From 1993 [Video]

Street Fighter II G.I. Joe Review Video

Every weekend here at CA we’re cracking open the latest and/or just greatest decades old action figures around to see what sets them apart from the articulated plastic pack. This week we’re unboxing two Street Fighter II G.I. Joe action figures from 1993 that I found at a convention a year ago for less than $10 and totally forgot about in my closet... until today. Do these bizarre relics from video game action figure past still hold up? Or are they mere novelties? Or are they totally both? Find out in our full review of 3.75" tall Guile and Blanka.

Medicom Reveals Its ‘The Amazing Spider-Man 2′ Deluxe Edition MAFEX Action Figure

Medicom MAFEX The Amazing Spider-Man 2
Medicom

When Medicom opened up preorders for its The Amazing Spider-Man 2 MAFEX action figure earlier this year, a teaser image depicted a pretty straightforward addition to the 6.3" tall toy line. Sure, it was cool to see a new take on the film's updated Spidey suit, but otherwise it was pretty similar to the first ASM figure, right? Well, not completely. While the basic figure is similar in some regards, there's going to be a deluxe edition of the Spider-Man figure that has accessories enow to make it look like he may or may not enjoy seductive convos on his smartphone. Oh, and a friggin' skateboard!

Hot Toys Unleashes Its Winter Soldier For ‘Captain America 2′

Hot Toys The Winter Soldier 1

The brooding former Howling Commando with a sweet robot arm (and maybe a heart of gold?) known as The Winter Soldier is getting his 1/6 scale collectible figure due from Hot Toys later this year. No, it won't be available for several months after Captain America: The Winter Soldier arrives in theaters on April 4, but once you know its stylin' secret, you might consider the figure well worth the wait.

Android 17 S.H. Figuarts

Ever since Bandai's S.H. Figuarts version of Android 18 from Dragon Ball Z went on preorder, fans knew it was only a matter of time before her brother Android 17 joined the plastic party. Well, the time has come. Starting today fans can preorder the web-exclusive S.H. Figuarts Android 17 for ¥4104 (about $40.14 USD), and expect to get it by September.

Bravest Warriors Bendies Review

There Is Going To Be A ‘Jem And The Holograms’ Movie And They Are Casting It On Tumblr

Jem (Jerrica Benton) on the cover of Glitter Magazine

Am I awake right now? Is this whole world a just beautiful dream? Because folks, it is rare that news comes across the desk here at ComicsAlliance that literally brings me to tears of joy, and today, that has happened. I am openly weeping at my desk, because it has just been announced that there will be a Jem and the Holograms live-action feature film from G.I. Joe: Retaliation director Jon M. Chu. The beauty of the man who brought us last year's greatest cliff-side ninja fighting turning his attention to the glamour, glitter, fashion and fame ofJem is overwhelming.

The film is still in its extremely early stages of production, though, and has yet to be cast. In fact, Chu, along with Jason Blum and Scooter Braun are looking to cast the Holograms by having fans submit videos of themselves via Tumblr. And now you know why I wasn't sure if this was a dream. Check out the video announcement below!

Funko Pop Vinyl DIY

Over the past few years Funko's 3.75" tall Pop! Vinyl line has delivered tons of licensed characters, but fans who wanted to customize the figures had to fully paint over existing toys to achieve do-it-yourself effects. That changes March 28-30 at Emerald City Comicon 2014, with Seattle-based Funko unveiling its new line of blank DIY Pop! Vinyl figures in both a standard white color, plus a convention-exclusive green version.
