Ben Spencer (Galaxxor) has been at work on a new project - the Lucha Sharks. While currently in the beginning stages of the creation/production process, he will be working with Marty Hansen (The Godbeast) to produce resin figures in limited edition colorways.
Ben has stated that he might sculpt a Luchador mask on the shark's head. Personally, I think it's a must. Maybe even have a version with the single strap wrestling trunks that Andre the Giant wore.
Onell Design will be releasing a new wave of Glyos figures beginning tonight (Sunday July 29th 2012) at 8:30PM ET. The Volkriun Wave will apparently feature a number of figures...if the above photo can be trusted. Be sure to set your alarm clock.

Hot Toys will be at the annual Ani-Com & Games Hong Kong event showing the prototypes of the sixth-scale Agent Phil Coulson and Chitauri Footsoldier from The Avengers. But we just get these teasers...
**I'm guessing the Phil Coulson figure will be popular with those collectors trying to put together a sixth scale cast of The New Adventures of Old Christine**
