Oh, S.H. Figuarts, how you love separating me from my ill-gotten hard-earned money! At this year's San Diego Comic-Con, the Bluefin Tomashii Nations booth was the place to be for fan's of Dragonball Z, thanks to the S.H. Figuarts Con-Exclusive Piccolo figure! While I missed the show, a friend managed to hunt one down and ship it my way. Now, it's time for a review!

Keep October 2013 on your calendar, as that's when Sailor Moon's Sailor Mercury heads to toy shops; and judging by the response we've gotten to previous announcements about the anime heroine in toy form, she's going to be in demand.

The figure, which will come out in America through Bandai's S.H. Figuarts, is the first of the Sailor Scouts to appear alongside the previously-announced premium Sailor Moon figure, and comes with tons of detail, articulation and extras. Read More...

Here's our look at some of the coolest toy news of the past week!

THERE ARE PROBABLY DRUG ADDICTIONS CHEAPER THAN MASTERPIECE TRANSFORMERSBig Bad Toy Store has pre-orders for new Takara Masterpiece Transformers, including Bumblebee and Wheeljack!  I still await Galvatron, or at least an Hasbro-issued US Megatron I can afford.

NO, THEY DON'T RUN AT YOU SUPER-FAST: Speaking of Big Bad Toy Store, if you enjoy "World War Z" this weekend, there's pre-orders available for Jazwares' action figures from the film...no, they don't have pics of the figure based on Brad Pitt's Gerry Lane.  That might be the first Brad Pitt figure in history.  Such an age it is we live in!

Your "Tron: Legacy" figures are about to feel vastly inferior next to these new figures of Daft Punk from Bandai's S.H. Figuarts.

Looking at that painting, we think that Godzilla trampling the San Diego Convention Center, while looking awesome, would considerably wipe out some of the best and brightest creators of comics, toys, and film. On the other hand, his fiery breath would effectively nullify the stench that permeates the con floor by day 2 of SDCC from the sweat-filled costumes and overly-packed bodies. We guess there really is a silver lining to every catastrophic situation! This year, you can play out the scenario for yourself on the sidewalk, in the convention center, or even in your hotel's bath tub (creepy!) thanks to Bandai Japan's San Diego Comic-Con exclusive S.H. MonsterArts Godzilla in his fiery orange "Comic-Con Explosion" color scheme! This Godzilla uses the same sculpt as their previous S.H. MonsterArts figure, but has been molded in faded, semi-translucent plastic. While this version of the destroyer/protector of Tokyo stands roughly 6 inches tall, he is almost 15 inches long from head to tail!

Read on for all the info on this SDCC exclusive, only available at the Bluefin booth!

Toy Fair 2012: Bandai Lets Loose The ThunderCats

ThunderCats Classics: the toy line that we (and a lot of fans) have a love/hate relationship with. When this line was first announced last year, Bandai has TC fan's mouths salivating at the prospect of a figure line in the same vein of Masters of the Universe Classics. Then Bandai dropped the bombshell that the figures would clock in at around 9" tall. while the first wave of Lion-O and Tygra looked good (Lion-O more-so than his second-in-command), they were still the odd Cats out on the shelf filled with 6" to 7" scale figures. Recently, Bandai heard the outcry and remedied the situation by releasing the new ThunderCats Classics line utilizing the 6" scale. Is all right in the world now? Have the ThunderCats finally pounced their way to the top of our collections? Read on as today we're taking a look at both Lion-O and Mumm-Ra from Bandai's 6" ThunderCats Classics line!

We hope you enjoyed yesterday's ThunderCats action figure reveals, and today we're bringing you an exclusive first look at a couple of the newest vehicles to hit shelves in 2012! Both Mumm-Ra's Storm Charger and the Armor of Omens are part of the 4" line of ThunderCats toys and are based on designs on the terrific animated series on Cartoon Network. while the tons of photos we have would help satiate fan's appetites, we also took some time to talk with Amanda Burns, marketing brand manager with Bandai America Incorporated about both vehicles and what they can do.

Read on for our interview, tons of photos, a video clip...ehhh, you get the idea!

While the rest of the internet will soon pass these images around like a cheap bottle of cooking wine at a hobo's campfire, we here at MTV Geek! are excited to bring you these first looks at new releases from both the 6" ThunderCats Classics and Modern line. That's right, 6 inch ThunderCats Classics! "What the hell?!" Yeah, that was our reaction too. So, we went right to the source and got some inside info from Brehan Maul, senior director of marketing, boys, at Bandai America Incorporated, about the change in scale and a few hints about upcoming releases. Oh, and we also asked about that whole black-joint problem of Lion-O's. You're welcome.
