Quantum Mechanix had some of my favorite new products at Toy Fair this past February and they didn’t disappoint with what they brought to SDCC.
Quantum Mechanix has fully stepped inton the 1:6 scale world displaying some amazing figures from Star Trek, Supernatural, Firefly, and the Princess Bride. The Star Trek line is their most expansive as it spans The Original Series, The Next Generation and an amazing movie Kirk and Spock.
Of course it wasn’t limited to just 1:6 scale figures as QMx has their hot Q-Figs on display, new plush items, a replica Guardians of the Galaxy Milano, the USS Franklin from Star Trek: Beyond and an amazing Millennium Falcon complete with interior details.
Be sure to check out the gallery below.
I realize that I posted a Bluefin gallery the other day, but the Tamashii Nations display was so impressive it needed it’s own post. While I covered the Toy Story Chogokin – there’s improved pictures in the below gallery. Also getting some well deserved attention are the Figuarts Turtles (they look perfect), the debut of WWE Figuarts, the new Samurai Spider-Man and much more.
See it all below.
Ever since their announcement of the Alien ReAction line a few years ago, Super7 has gained the attention of action figure fans everywhere. With the announcement that they’re the new stewards of Masters of the Universe this attention will be continuing.
Their SDCC display (in the exhibit hall – I haven’t been to Skeletor’s Lair yet) features new Streetfighter 3 3/4″ ReAction style figures, their ReAction style Masters of the Universe figures, collectible glassware, the debut of 3 3/4″ Hellboy figures and new Alien M.U.S.C.L.E. figures. Of course there’s much more in their case – so check out the gallery!
After taking a little break from the scale, Mattel’s bringing their DC figures back to 6″ with an impressive showing at SDCC 2016. The new slate features product from all facets of the DC universe – TV, movies, comics.
Among the new reveals were the continuation of the Dark Knight Returns figures an impressive Batgirl, the complete Suicide Squad line and two impressive Collect and Connect figures (the robotic Batsuit looks amazing). Check out all the Mattel DC Multiverse product below.
Factory Entertainment had a pretty impressive Toy Fair this year and they kept the momentum going with their SDCC display.
A standout piece from their display was a miniature Batman ’66 Batcave, complete with Batmobile. The detail on this miniature is amazing – it looks like the television set has been shrunk down and placed on a table top.
Also impressive were new addition to the Metal Miniatures line. While there were new additions to their Marvel line on display, new properties including Ghostbusters and Harry Potter stole the limelight away from our Avenger friends.
See these and their other products (including Marvel and DC motion statues, Game of Thrones product) in the gallery below.
Following the Star Wars panel this afternoon, brand new Hasbro Star Wars toys filled their display space. The below pictures were all snapped on the exhibit hall floor and include the latest 6″ and 3 3/4″ figures that will be hitting stores over the next year. Among what you’ll see is the new 6″ Hera, Lando and Tusken Raider as well as the 3 3/4″ Grand Admiral Thrawn and the first of the Rogue One toys.
I apologize for not delivering a NECA gallery sooner – during the first full day of the show, due to the popularity of their TMNT SDCC exclusives – I couldn’t even get near the booth to photograph. Today I had a little more luck and was able to snap around the booth capturing all the awesome new toys they busted out for the show.
Highlights include new entries in their amazingly accurate quarter scale line (now including the TMNT), some modern take on Kenner Aliens, the continuation of their hugely popular series of video game inspired figures and some amazing horror figures. There’s, of course, much more in the gallery below – be sure to check it out.
Gentle Giant has historically been known for their jaw droppingly accurate sculpts on statues and busts but have, in recent years, made quite a niche for themselves by reissuing vintage toys in both Jumbo and Micro sizes. Their SDCC display reflects this diverse product line-up as all these key notes are hit on by the items in their cases. Check them all out in the gallery below!
Diamond Select Toys is always a favorite booth to stop at during SDCC – not just for the awesome chats with the folks there, but also due to their diverse line-up of awesome stuff. This year is no exception with the booth jam packed full of new goodies ranging from new DC vinyl statues to a new X-Files Flukeman bust bank all the way to new Plants vs. Zombies vinyl toys. No matter your interest – Marvel, DC, Star Trek, Nightmare Before Christmas, TMNT, Aliens, Predator, Gotham, Star Trek – Diamond Select Toys has something that’ll appeal.
Check out their full booth display below and if something catches your eye, be sure to talk to you local comic or specialty shop about it so they can nab it for you.
To summarize the Bandai America display at SDCC to it’s two primary themes would a be a simplification – but ultimately it boils down to Power Rangers and Miraculous as two key focus areas.
The heavy hitter for the Power Rangers is the debut of the first toys from the upcoming Power Rangers movie – these are the very first images you’ll see in the gallery. A ton of other Power Ranger toys also shared the spotlight – including some very nice collector’s Rangers figures.
Miraculous, which we were introduced to at Toy Fair, was a second big focus for Bandai. Featuring Ladybug and Cat Noir – this crime fighting duo is being set up as a heavy hitter for Bandai. You can check out these toys and the rest of the Bandai display in the gallery below.

Bluefin serves as the US distributor for a number of companies, and they have product spread across much of the convention center. I’ve combined the companies they represent – including Bandai Tamashii Nations, Blitzway, Sentinel – into one gallery. Highlights include some amazing Ghostbusters statues, a fantastic Tyler Durden from Fight Club and the Toy Story combinging toy from Tamashii Nations.

There are a few certainties in life and among those are death, taxes and jaw-droppingly gorgeous statues and figures in the Sideshow Collectibles’ SDCC display. This year was no exception – as it seems that all of Sideshow’s products just continue to get more and more awesome. Check them all out in the gallery below – and I’ll call out my personal favorite piece…an amazing Dark Phoenix statue. I’ll be surprised if I don’t end up placing an order for that one.
The Real American Hero – G. I. Joe has a nice presence in the SDCC booth with their 2016 line-up featured. The line-up, which was revealed at JoeCon features some in-demand reissues of previous figures along with some all new entries – including new female Joes and Cobras.
And one, of course, cannot discuss the 2016 Joe offerings without highlighting the SDCC exclusive Joe vs. Transformers set – the fourth in the series.
Check out all the items in the Hasbro G. I. Joe case in the gallery below. Yo Joe!
Kotobukiya always has an impressive display at SDCC and with their fine art statues, ArtFx+ statues and other collectible items it would be hard not to.

There was a ton of product on display, but the gallery below focuses on items that are not yet released – so if you see something you like check with your favorite retailer how to get a pre-order.
