IF you're interested in pre-ordering them, you can head on over to Amazon.com and get the jump on the rush. (I'm just assuming you'll be getting underwear recommendations for the next several weeks)
Darkstonetoys is a new company that's currently taking pre-orders for their Shadow the Assassin Raccoon resin figure based on the illustrations of Juan Carlos Valdez, a Miami based artist. So what you're seeing here is a 3-D render. The pre-order is so the piece can get funded and made (basically Kickstarter minus the slight feeling of security of Kickstarter). The plans are for this resin piece to measure 7 inches tall. There will 2 colorways aside from the main color version. And it runs $75.00.
Of course, I should warn you about the multiple misspellings, the lack of any other releases from this company/artist, that there isn't an actual product being shown here, and that the 3-D renders are missing the coloration for Mr. Raccoon's nose in the below photos. If you're okay with all of that and don't care about your $75.00...go ahead and pre-order one. Please tell us if/when you get it.

Gecco Corp has announced the 1/6th scale AMON statue from AMON: The Apocalypse of Devilman created by the master manga artist Go Nagai. The 1.5 foot tall painted polystone statue is slated to be released in July 2017. A huge demon skull and magic circle are designed on the base capturing the hideous demon's world.
"Devilman" is a ground breaking comic series created by master manga artist Go Nagai, who marks his 50th anniversary as an artist in 2017. Many spin-off works have been released by various creators, and "Amon: Apocalypse of Devilman" is one of them. In this story, the mighty demon fighter “Amon” is fused with a human named Akira Fudo which we’ve recreated as a fine art polystone statue.
I’m sure folks are already counting down the days until Season 7 of Game of Thrones (it’s July 16th 2017). One of the most popular shows on television, the HBO series based on George R. R. Martin’s book series also has collectors’ interest piqued. And Threezero is producing the only 1/6th scale figure series (that we know of) based on characters from the show.
To date, they’ve released Eddard Stark, Jon Snow, Tyrion Lannister, and – now – Jaime Lannister. The Kingslayer comes dressed up in his highly detailed Kingsguard armor that’s removable and gives Jaime Lannister a totally different look.
Featuring the likeness of actor Nikolaj Coster-Waldau as Lannister, the face sculpt does an admirable job recreating the look of the character from early in the series. Remember, this is a show that started in 2011, and the characters have been through a lot. Like losing hands…although this version of Lannister doesn’t include his golden hand.
The outfit is pretty impressive. All of the armor can be removed rather easily. That getup has a weathered cloak that clips on to the armor. It also includes a pair of “dressier” boots. Or you can then go with the tan leather-ish jacket (I believe they call it a robe) and the “casual” boots. For that more, laid-back look.
As far as weapons go, the Kingslayer is sporting his sword (I think it might be Oathkeeper) and a dagger. Each one can be secured on his belt in the accompanying sheath. And to hold those weapons, the figure includes an extra pair of hands specifically designed for that purpose.
Threezero doesn’t include display stands with most of their figures, which helps keep costs down. For example, the Jaime Lannister figure at $190.00 is about $20.00 less than your average 1/6th scale figure from competing high-end companies. Of course, this isn’t a Disney license…which might lend to some of those high costs.
And while there are some options for Game of Thrones collectors, since it’s not a show fit for kids (just watch some of the first few seasons), you don’t get the same number of lines a Marvel film would pull in. We’ve seen lines from Dark Horse, Funko, and McFarlane…but nothing that compares to the quality of what Threezero is putting out. And the proof is in the pudding…their Jaime Lannister figure is sold out in most spots.
