Spooky Cute Series 1 is a 3" tall blind boxed line designed by Danny Chan (Hong Kong).   The will be 9 basic designs as well as 1 rare figure.  It's not often that I find a blind boxed line that I like, but these look great!  I love all of the different animal sculpts.

We haven't heard a lot from Kicktoys about their BEit Dude line.  But they have released the above photo of the figure progress.  Some pretty different character designs there.  I'll hold judgement until I see the final product.

REVIEW: Samwise Gamgee 1/6 Scale

Img_4692

Background

Sideshow Collectibles has long been producing figures, busts, statues and prints from the epic trilogy – The Lord of the Rings.  They recently released a pair of Hobbits as 1/6 scale figures.  After already reviewing Frodo, we’ll be taking a look at his pal…Samwise Gamgee.

Once a humble gardener in the Shire, Samwise Gamgee is Frodos closest friend and traveling companion, helping him to bear the One Ring to Rivendell. Once Frodo volunteers to take the Ring into Mordor and destroy it, Sam does not hesitate to follow his master. With the Fellowship of the Ring, Frodo and Sam begin the long, perilous journey. When the Fellowship is broken and scattered, Sam alone remains with Frodo, and together, but not alone, the two young hobbits continue their quest toward Mount Doom to destroy the evil ring and end Sauron’s reign over Middle-earth.

Packaging

Again, Sideshow got the packaging on these as close to perfect as can be asked.  The only thing I would have liked to see is magnets instead of Velcro to hold the doors shut (like the Star Wars line).

The front doors open for plenty of reading on the inside panels.  There is background information about the character as well as a few of the accessories.  And the packaging has photos of the figure as well as Sean Astin from the film.

ZOMBITOYS by Zombicat

Adele
Saba

The Zombitoys series includes four "gods" featuring different powers and
personalities. Zombitoys are more than just eye-catching figurines;
they are characters that invite you to play day-by-day roles and
actions, via a game-element inside their heads. But be warned: the
Zombitoys are intended for an adult public.

Each of the four figures is about 2.5" tall.  The characters are Adele (white), Saba (red), Ferurun (green) and Patabar (thermic black).  Look for them to retail around $12 each.  For wholesale inquiries, contact DKE Toys.
