Not only did Go Hero announce that they will now be taking "official" pre-orders for their Buck Rogers 1:6 scale Deluxe Figure and the Atomic Disintegrator Pistol, but they've also revealed their newest license - Buster Crabbe as Flash Gordon.  They'll be producing a super-detailed 1:6 scale figure of the character.  We can't wait to get a peek at it.

SDCC 2008: Go Hero

Steve Forde and Go Hero were sharing booth space with Rocket World.  The Buck Rogers figures were more impressive than my photos.  They don't do them justice.  It looks like 3 versions will be made available.  The red shirt is the regular edition, while the other two will be exclusives.

They also announced two new Ray Harryhausen licenses from the comic books Wrath of the Titans and Sinbad Rogue of Mars.  (Both of which were based on films)  The piece I am really looking forward to is Bubo, the little mechanical owl.  Remember him from the 1981 film Clash of the Titans?

Go Hero is just about finished revealing photos and details of their Buck Rogers in the 25th Century 1:6 scale figure.  As you can tell, there was a ton of detail put into this piece.  It's also been announced that the MSRP will be around $175 and that they should be ready to ship by the 4th quarter of this year.

Also of interest is that the figure will use the Go Hero ATOM-EDIA body.  Here are the details: ATOM-EDIA contains an internal MP3 device.  Listen to episodes of the original Buck Rogers Radio Show.  Connect via USB to download more files.

Buck Rogers’ Jet Pack

The Go Hero continues to release teaser images of their 1/6 scale Buck Rogers figure.  This week, it's his jet pack.  The little LEDs should make it appear like flames if you're in the dark.

Go Hero’s Buck Rogers Progress

If you've been following the progress of Go Hero's 1/6 scale Buck Rogers figure, then you probably know that they've revealed photos of Buck's head sculpt, helmet and outfit design.  While the pants below are blue, they will actually be "camel" on the final product. What color is camel?  Umm...go to a zoo to find out.

Buck Rogers…Boots and Gloves

Go Hero continues to tease Buck Rogers fans as they release bits and pieces of their 1/6 scale sculpt.  They've given us a look at Buck's gloves and boots.  I'm guessing his hands and gloves will be interchangeable, since last week they showed the hand sculpt off.
