To celebrate the 25 anniversary of Dragon Quest Square Enix has produced a figure based off the Legendary Armor of Loto from the first three Dragon Quest games. This armored warrior comes equipped with his trusty sword, shield, and a removable helmet with a visor that can be lifted up or down. And for those of you who played this game in North America on the original NES you might recognize this as the Eldrick armor from the Dragon Warrior series. you will want to start level grinding and killing those slimes now, cause this sucker cost close to $100 when it is released in February 2012.
Images are out for Jazwares line of Street Fighter action figures, and after looking at them I am glad I did not pre-order them. Theses are some pretty ugly figures, the only set that looks remotely good are the El Fuerte vs Seth. I can only recommend buying theses if you are looking to own everything Street Fighter related, otherwise save your money and hunt down the ReSuarus or the SOTA figures.

Marvel has teamed up with Tonner Dolls to produce figures based off of Marvel characters. The figures stand at 16″ tall, feature hand painted faces, and are made from a mix of vinyl and hard plastic. While not a fan of this type of ‘action figure’ I can not help but admire them, these are some beautiful dolls. Big Bad Toy Store has Ms. Marvel for sale, and is taking preorders for Emma Frost and Jean Grey. Just be prepared to drop a pretty penny for these pretty ladies as they cost around $150.
Check out the Official Tonner website to see their full selection of figures, which include DC figures and Alice in Wonderland.

Coming to Kotobukiyas ever growing line of Marvel Bishoujo Figures is this variant of Ms. Marvel in her Binary form. This version of Carol Danvers came about during an adventure in space with the X-men. Changed by an experiment by the alien race the Brood and drawing on the power of a cosmic phenomenon called a white hole, Carol Danvers gained incredible power and could generate the power of a star. Kotobukiya does a great job of harnessing the awesome power of Binary into a beautifully sculpted statue. She’ll stand 10″ tall and limited to a production run of 1500 you’ll want to snatch one up before they are gone. It has a release date of January 2012 and is priced around $59.99.
