Syco Collectibles' Mortal Kombat 9 Mileena 10" Statue Collection pics

So you have seen Jade.. she's gone off to another home and Mileena might be leaving as well..

So let's show her off before she's gone..

As you can see, the sai in her right hand is broken.. I still have this piece which is a clean break but I'm missing the other 2 pieces.

Apart from that, the statue has no other damages.

Here's the base, given some purple cracks in sync with Mileena's colour theme..

Take a look at this monstrous beauty..

Wow.. say what you want about Syco Collectibles but you have to give them credit in the way they treated the ladies. I mean look at all those curves.. She's stunning! Again, this is why it took me so long to sell the ladies away even though most of the other Syco statues are long gone. I mean.. come on, look at that! They don't call her the Man-Eater for no reason!

The statue also comes with an alternate swap out hand with the sai.

Would look a lot more threatening once the other sai is fixed. I did ask around and from what I heard it should be an easy fix if you bring it to the right people. 

So, yes Mileena is up for sale. I'm definitely going to miss her like I do with Jade but I have no regrets. You just move on I guess..

UbiCollectibles' announces 2 new Connor Statue Dioramas!

UbiCollectibles continues the Diorama line for the Assassin's Creed games with a Connor, The Last Breath statue.

In line with the previously released Altair, Bell & Ezio, Leap of Faith (pics coming soon..) diorama statues, UbiCollectibles, together with Pure Arts have produced another master piece!

If you think the pose looks very, very familiar.. Yes this pose is influenced by the Assassin's Creed 3 game's cover art. 

No? Oh you mean you have seen this statue before? Well... Yes, this is a miniature of the very rare, Connor Premium Statue

The Connor Premium Statue was not released to public initially but was only recently put up for sale on the new Pure Arts' website, and now...

UbiCollectibles also announced that the Premium version of the Connor, Last Breath statue will also be available in 1/4 scale!

Do notice the base with a plate in the premium version..

This remains as my favourite Assassin's Creed statue of all time, due to it's size, the amazing details and the sheer intense this violent pose exhibits and how exclusive it was.

So, I have to admit I'm quite disappointed that they are going to re-release this statue again, making it less exclusive. That said, I think it's great for collectors to get a chance at owning this absolutely stunning piece. Not sure if there's any differences between the original and this re-release but it looks pretty much the same.

You can view pics of mine here, but I definitely need to take better pics of it.

Both versions of this diorama are to be released in September 2016, which is not a long way away now!

SDCC 2016: Marvel Ultimate Alliance 1 & 2 coming to Current-Gen consoles

Some gaming news from SDCC 2016.. The Marvel Ultimate Alliance games are coming to current-gen consoles this week!

Both games are available digitally only at the moment and there's no mention of a disc version being available anytime soon.

Marvel Ultimate Alliance 2 covered the Civil War storyline so that's something you want to check out.

I have played both of these games back on the older consoles and they are really fun. Definitely something best played with friends where you can do special moves with other characters.

However, with the free-to-play Marvel Heroes MMO available on PC, I'm not very sure if I want to get this game again.. It's still a really fun game so I might just wait for it to go on sale.

SDCC 2016: The Rest - Blizzard, XM Studios & Multiverse

Showed you guys so many of my favourite collectibles from so many different companies.. Here's the rest!

Multiverse Studio had the 1/6 Ayane Statue from the Ninja Gaiden series for sale at the con.

Beautiful-looking statue and it really compliments their Ryu Hayabusa Statue with it's pose and base. 

Not to worry if you missed out on this, this is still available at Entertainment Earth, among other sites:

Blizzard showcased the 2nd statue in their World of Warcraft series, Illidan.

Oh boy, this looks absolutely phenomenal. What a stunning piece! 1 of my favourite heroes from Warcraft 3, this one has to be a purchase for me!

Check out this video of Illidan!

Just woah!

XM Studios' The Darkness 1/4 Statue was on display at the Top Cow booth.

Another absolute stunner of a piece! Glad to have this pre-ordered, so just waiting for it's release. Going to be my first XM Studios' statue so pretty excited, having seen them grow so fast in the past few years. 

Already tipped to be a Statue of the year contender so we will see.. Whatever it is, it's going to be an amazing feeling just owning this piece.

That's about all in terms of collectibles from SDCC 2016 that I'm interested in. A few have already been pre-ordered and I should own them in the next few months or so. If budget permits, might grab a few more..

Hope you guys enjoyed the pics & vids I shared with you guys!

SDCC 2016: Gecco - Bloodborne, Dark Souls 3, Metal Gear Solid V

And the updates continue..

Gecco had a good mix of 1/6 Statues from several games. A nice scale for me for statues in terms of gaming characters that I'm not such a huge fan of, but would still like to have because I enjoyed the games.


Some pics of the Hunter statue that was released some time back..

This is something I like, even though I have heard mixed reviews about it. Comes at a price, so I have put it on hold until I finish playing the game to see if I would enjoy it as much as I think I would.

Extra accessories were promised for this and here they are..

Also shown was the unpainted prototype of the next statue from Bloodborne, Doll.

Not sure who this character is, but that's some creepy shit to have around the house..

Dark Souls 3

Haven't touched the Souls games either, gonna see if I can manage Bloodborne first before I try the tougher Souls games.

Will end this post with a few Metal Gear Solid V pics..
