Normally, I am not a fan of action figures based on movie versions of superheroes. By the time a movie modifies the superhero so he or she looks acceptable on-screen, the process of then transforming that back into an action figure just looks weird. If you want to see some seriously goofy looking action figures, for example, go check out those based on Christian Bale’s version of Batman. Ugh.
This Medicom action figure of Gal Gadot’s Wonder Woman, however, is the exception to the rule. Part of this is due to how well the movie version of Wonder Woman looks. Gadot’s version is both drop-dead gorgeous while still maintaining a core that screams power. (As much as I love the 1970s TV show, the Lynda Carter version of the character over-emphasizes the glamour aspect of the character at the expense of believability that she’s an Amazonian badass).
Medicom makes this sofubi version of the Shak?ki-dog? figures created during the J?mon period of prehistorical Japan.
X Bomber (Star Fleet in the English-speaking markets) was a 1981 Japanese marionette TV show similar to Gerry Anderson’s Supermarioniation series such as Thunderbirds. Medicom has created this incredible looking sofubi version of the series’ giant robot protagonist that was formed by combining three smaller robots.
Getter? I barely know her.
Medicom makes a series of vinyl toys called Bearbricks–essentially an anthropomorphized bear designed to look like some pop culture figure, from Toy Story to Star Trek. I’m generally not a fan (I just don’t get the point), but I have to say I could see myself buying this Bank Robber version of The Joker from The Dark Knight movie. Probably more about how cool this version of The Joker was in that movie.
