Considering how impressive its Figma and Nendoroid action figures have been over the past several years, I was surprised to hear that Toy Fair 2014 was Good Smile Company's first year at the show with a proper booth. The booth certainly didn't show the toymaker's freshman status, and was full of recent hits like GSC's popular Samus from Metroid Figma and Sonic the Hedgehog Nendoroid, plus a few all new reveals. Get a load of Ghost in the Shell's Major Motoko Kusanagi Figma, The Legend of Zelda: The Windwaker Link Nendoroid, a massive titan statue from Attack on Titan, and more after the jump.

Subaru is known for its cars with all-wheel drive capabilities, commitment to green initiatives, and apparently making the easiest cars for people wearing Crocs to drive. But did you know that they're also capable of outrunning humanity-devouring giants?
That's the gist of a new commercial that puts a Subaru Forester in the midst of three truly disturbing and terrifying monstrosities who may or may not be the basis of the overall look of the Attack on Titan live-action movie set for release next year. Check it out after the jump, if you can handle it.

Good Smile Company and Max Factory have announced their plans to release Figma versions of Attack on Titan's most famous giant-slayers Eren, Mikasa and Levi, but what of their more sheepish friend Armin? It seems he too will join the action figure fray later this year, although fans will have to either preorder in Japan at the Winter Wonder Festival figures event on February 9 or through GSC's online shop.

The strongest -- and most deadpan -- soldier from Attack on Titan will get the full range of Figma action figure articulation and accessorizing in 2014. Captain Levi of The Survey Corps Special Operations Squad will join AoT protagonists Eren Jaeger and Mikasa Ackerman sometime around their respective June and July releases to help defend humanity and its last walled stronghold against the scourge of the mysterious man-eating titans. And he'll do looking kinda like Grumpy Cat.
