Check out everything in this edition of The Toy Box after the jump.
Funko POP Vinyl 2016 San Diego Comic-Con Exclusives
As usual, Funko is bringing a whole batch of exclusive goodies to San Diego Comic-Con for collectors to get their hands on. They’ve been introducing a new wave roughly every other day or so, and since they’ve done about five waves of announcements for their SDCC releases, we figured now is the time to highlight some of what’s in store.
The images above are just some of the exclusives. Others include Funko POP Vinyls for Looney Tunes’ Duck Dodgers, Gears of War, The Walking Dead, The Dark Crystal, The Powerpuff Girls and more. To see all the releases so far, check out the respective links for Wave 1, Wave 2, Wave 3, Wave 4 and Wave 5.
Star Wars: The Force Awakens – Anovos Rey Costume Ensemble
If you’re desperate for a new Star Wars costume and you’ve got $600 lying around, then Anovos has you covered. They’ve just unveiled another one of their upscale replica costumes that will let you dress up in Rey’s Jakku ensemble from The Force Awakens. It doesn’t come with her trusty staff or the adorable BB-8, but I’m sure you can figure something else out to create those elements for your cosplaying needs.
Star Trek: The Original Series: QMX 1:6 Scale Captain Kirk Figure
In honor of the 50th anniversary of the original series, QMX has a new sixth scale Star Trek figure for Captain Kirk. In addition to his fully articulated body, fabric uniform and custom boots, the figure comes with some pretty sweet accessories and interchangeable parts. Included with Captain Kirk are Type 1 and Type 2 phasers, a communicator, electronic clipboard and stylus, utility belt and even a karate chop hand. You can pre-order the figure for $179.95 right now and it will ship sometime in July.
Alien 3: NECA’s Alien Series 8 Figure Line
This month, NECA will start sending Series 8 of the Alien action figure line to retailers, but if you’d rather just get them right now online, the four new figures are available in their eBay store. Series 8 includes characters and xenomorphs from Alien 3, including Ellen Ripley, a Weyland-Yutani Commando, and brown and gray variants of the Dog Alien. They’re all 7″ scale figures (the aliens are 9″ tall) and each will cost you $21.99 plus shipping from NECA’s store. That’s slightly more expensive then they’ll be at a place like Toys R Us, so it might be worth it to wait, though these figures are usually a little difficult to find in stores.
Star Wars: A New Hope – Sideshow Collectibles Unpainted Prototype R2-D2
If you prefer your toys to looks like a rough draft, then Sideshow Collectibles have a new sixth scale figure that you’ll want on your shelf. The company has an unpainted prototype version of R2-D2, but it still comes with all the features you’d expect from the Astromech droid. To clarify, the figure is made to look like a prototype of the droid rather than a prototype of the toy of the droid.
R2-D2’s dome rotates and lights up, and he also has articulated terrain legs, hinged panels for his secret compartments and tools and more. It’ll cost you $120, but for the R2-D2 collector out there, that’s actually not too bad. You can choose to pick it up at San Diego Comic-Con or you can have it shipped to your home sometime after the convention.
