After grabbing the license to the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles from the 2014 film, most of us expected Prime 1 Studio to stick with the modern incarnations seen in Paramount's live-action update on the '80s cartoon. Given how Prime has worked with the company on the Transformers side of things, that line of thinking made some sense. Then this past weekend at Wonder Festival Winter, Prime 1 Studio shattered expectations completely. Not only is the company continuing to put out more Turtles goods, but soon the fan-favorite iterations from the 1990 feature film will find their way from the sewers into collections around the world.
The four-statue set features the Ninja Turtles as they were in the landmark action movie of 1990. Unlike the computer-generated Turtles that populate the current films, these statues will be based on the actual costumes worn by actors playing Donatello, Raphael, Michelangelo and Leonardo. I haven't been this excited about a TMNT collectible since Good Smile's James Jean statue series, but these new statues speak to me on a whole different level. And that level is my childhood.
Good Smile Company's The Amazing Spider-ManFigma won't be its lone Marvel hero for much longer. This past weekend at Wonder Festival in Japan, the toymaker displayed its painted Iron Man and Thor prototypes, along with an unpainted Captain America, assembling three of the biggest stars from The Avengers movie.
An increasingly giant amount of Attack on Titan toys is advancing on fans of Hajime Isayama's manga and corresponding anime. This past weekend at Wonder Festival in Japan, Good Smile Company unveiled upcoming Figma action figures for series protagonists Eren Yeager and his adopted sis Mikasa Ackerman, completely with their signature "3-D Maneuver Gear," which the characters use to swing around like Spider-Man and slash the necks of giants called Titans who seek to devour humankind inside their walled city. An unarticulated painted Figma prototype of the show's most iconic Colossal Titan antagonist was also on hand, sporting its skinless body and wonky proportions. Decidedly cuter prototypes for GSC's chibi-style Nendoroid AoT toys were on display too, including Mikasa, a mockup of Eren and the same Colossal Titan.
