Even as the holidays quickly approach, the deluge of collecting news and speculation is flowing as fast as ever. On this week’s show, Flyguy and I break down the latest info from Hasbro, Sideshow, Bandai, S.H.Figuarts, Hot Wheels, and more. Gentle Giant looks to be teasing some great product for 2015, what it is exactly is anyone’s guess but we are giddy in its potential.

Update: S.H.Figuarts Yoda Not Coming Soon

SHF_yoda

BANDAI’s S.H.Figuarts line looks to be breaking into the Star Wars universe with this teaser on Tamashii Nations’ blog. For the uninitiated, S.H.Figuarts produce a line of figures that are intended to replicate, with precision, the natural movements of the human body. It will be interesting to see their approach with Yoda’s species.
