Saga is often described by other characters as someone with the kindness of an angel but with the darkness of a demon. This ambivalence ended up creating a split personality: a good Saga that was extremely loyal to Athena, and an evil one that keeps control of the body most of the time and killed the previous Pope to steal his place. His famous attacking techniques include Galaxian Explosion, Another Dimension, Demon Emperor Fist etc.

Artist Ryusuke Kitamura has released what might be the creepiest collectible I have laid my eyes upon. From Backcountry, the ORBY is handmade and sewn with a leather-covered resin face and limbs with a soft fur.

Artist Ryan Taft (Wolf Pits) has gone the Kickstarter route to produce his first collectible toys - Boomer and Doomer. The series reminds my of the BUD series produced by Jamungo back in the day. But Boomer and Doomer measure in at 6 inches in height. The figures will be available in three different colorways: White; Black; Kickstarter Edition Green.
You can grab one of these at the $35.00 funding level. The Kickstarter Edition colorways can be picked up at the $45.00 level.
This project will only be funded if it reaches its goal by Thursday, July 4th 2019 at 11:25PM ET.
As I say with all Kickstarter projects I post about. Remember...this is not a pre-order. There are many instances of crowd funded projects that have been funded never making good on their promised goods. So back all Kickstarters with caution.
