Mimoco, under license by CBS Consumer Products, has announced the second installment in the Star Trek x MIMOBOT Series. The Hikaru Sulu MIMOBOT has been released in a limited edition of 1,000 hand-numbered pieces. He joins Spock, Kirk, Picard and Data in MIMOBOT flash drive form.
Available in up to 128GB and USB 3.0 capabilities (ranging from $24.95 to $129.99), Sulu MIMOBOT also comes preloaded with bonus Mimory and the MimoDesk personalization suite of wallpapers, icons and avatars. It also comes equipped with MimoByte sound software powered with an offering of iconic Star Trek sounds and Sulu character dialogue that plays each time Sulu MIMOBOT is inserted or ejected from one’s computer.
Emily Bee is showing off a sneak peek at her first OBots design. These are the new 2-inch tall resin toy produced by Argonaut Resins and Carbon Fibre Media. Each one features a head that articulates. So we will just have to wait and see what Emily, and other artists, decide to do with this new format.

From the planet Kabagiff, in the solar system that revolves around the blue star Anubis 5, comes Sgt. Krugg, Hippo Titan Soldier!

The Superman reboot - Man of Steel - will begin to hit theaters worldwide next month. And Hot Toys is now beginning to tease a few of their upcoming sixth-scale figures. I'm cautiously optimistic that this version will at least equal the amazing story told in Superman 3.
Funko has announced what might be the best toy line based on AMC's The Walking Dead license to date. The Walking Dead: Mystery Minis is a blind-box series that is slated to be released on June 20th 2013.
The 2.5" tall figures include the Dixon boys (Merle and Darryl) in both regular and blood spatter version. There's also eight different zombies, with four of them having variants (blood spatter and glow-in-the-dark). That's a total of 16 different figures, although the pull rates differ by piece.
