1 Shanghai Comic Con SHCC 2018 Event on Thu Oct 25, 2018 12:28 pm

It's called a comic con but it seems like they have more toy and figure presence.

Thank you for sharing. Those are some interesting new TBLeague products (labeled Phicen again!), especially the heavy set guy and Alexander the Great (though he could do with a slightly better head sculpt).

I'm really liking the TBLeague Soldier Strange figure, so i might try to get her someday?

  TBLeague Kier is definitely different looking but I like her body armor and weapon.

 Finally TBLeague is coming out with a decent looking Cleopatra figure, I just wish that she was more darker complected.

I wonder if the Kier figure is actually TBLeague. That is a Sideshow character they did as a Premium Format statue. Curious to know if it’s some sort of collaboration.

Not to be a stick in the mud, but this Kleopatra is only marginally better (historically speaking) than the previous one, although I suppose not being blonde and not wearing high heels is something. Smile The details are still rather pseudo-Egyptian, and besides she really wasn't Egyptian at all, but Greek.

I managed to dig up this reasonable guess as to her appearance:


As for the clothing, something like that:








The exotic Egyptian look that we so often imagine is the work of Hollywood fantasy, with the feeble excuse of traditional-looking Egyptian-like depictions on the walls of traditional Egyptian temples that had no relation to reality back home in Alexandria.

I think that's one guy they'll definitely change if it goes to production. Right now it looks like he has a bad wig on.

Hercules, Bloodshot, Spartan Goddess, Cowgirl, and Galaxy Soldier were among the recent production releases that changed head sculpts from the SHCC2017 prototypes. The Hercules prototype looked like the Rock.

From everything I’ve read about Cleopatra, who was indeed Greek (Macedonian specifically), she was quite the fashionista, who’s mode of dress changed from day to day (often depending on who she was dealing with); everything from the topless look depicted in the carvings to the more traditional Roman garb. The look on this figure seems more Hollywood/comic book, but perhaps not too far off a possibility.

The look on this figure seems more Hollywood/comic book, but perhaps not too far off a possibility.

I am sure she would have worn plenty of different dresses, although I doubt they would have been very widely different from each other in basic design. But what you see on the figure is completely fantastical (even for Egyptians, never mind Greeks) and she would not have worn it even for bed or for Halloween, so to speak. If on some exceptional occasion she did don Egyptian clothing (and that is a pretty big if), she would have been wearing a lot more. There are images of scantily clad Egyptian dancing girls (below) from much earlier times (they only wear a collar and a belt), but that is different, and the queen of Egypt (and perhaps especially the Greek queen of Hellenistic Egypt) would not have been caught dead wearing something like this. Perhaps it is based on yet another comic book appearance (I note the ARH logo on the label), but even so it seems to be the product of an uninformed and lecherous modern imagination, of which the best that could possibly be said is that it might be shaped by the Roman slander campaign against a woman who seemed to seduce or bewitch one great Roman after another. Also, as BAD WOLF pointed out, she is far too pale (is this a "Vampire Cleopatra"?); moreover, the "eye of Horus" make up (on one eye!) is an Egyptian symbol, but never shown as make up on an actual human, least of all a queen; she might also have been given sandals, of course a dress, and all the Egyptian-inspired elements could have been made like real Egyptian elements without much trouble.

To me this represents a huge missed opportunity, and while the set is visually pleasing in some way, it is an offense to the informed and a disservice to the uninformed. This would have been ok if sold as a fantasy Egyptian cosplay figure, and I am sure plenty of the pieces would be useful for kitbashing other fantasy figures. By the way, the only pieces (that I see on the photos) that are perhaps really accurate are the crook and flail scepters that she is not shown holding in her hands; maybe also the sphinx, though not enough of it is visible to make sure.

Check out the label on the card for Kier. It's definitely a collab between Sideshow and Phicen, or at least, whoever designed the Court Of The Dead series at least, if they alone hold the rights to the characters and can have any company make their designs into figures.

For me, probably the best in show so far......everything else is just "ok".

Completely agree with the last part; this is the first time in a long while i've actually been excited for a phicen figure. Goes to show what having an actual aesthetic can do for you.

My eye-sight isn’t that good.

Lady Bat I may or may not buy; Lady Death Flesh tone seems to be out forever but never released; Career Killer...the name is interesting; Soldier Strange I am very interested; Narama seems interesting; so is Kier; Another Egyptian Princess offering? let me think about it; and the 1/12th female figures...are they movable? tpe body? I am definitely interested!

Thanks for sharing these pictures for us who couldn't be at the convention!

I might get Soldier Strange & Narama....

But, like PFT, the most interesting out of all of them is Kier, and that one is a definite buy if they release it.

The red armor is Satan from Seven Mortal Sins. Are they going to make the other characters from the series?

Narama looks akin to fighter woman in regards to the leg armor. I hope its under $160.

I do like Kier, hopefully the other characters from the series are made. I like the designs, but I'm not into statues. The base looks similar to Keres but attached to the new circle base. Why not make the circle bases separate? Or maybe make various styles (ex: a sewer lid, a floor of a space station, a marble floor of a castle)

I can't wait for Blue Lady Death.

Image From ebay, I'm not sure on LadyBat. the plugs look crooked or misaligned. Also, it looks like if you continue to swap the wings, the skin will detach from the metal pegs

emm...this answered one of my questions for this phicen figure...i rather they fasten it onto her clothes or something...

then again...if the wings were attached directly onto her back...I will be able to take pictures of a naked bat...!

okay, sold! (and the HS is really nice!)

Sideshow Live previewed their Kier (Court of the Dead) collaboration with TBLeague last week. Pics from ScreamingMetal over at the Freaks:


















I'm really digging this. I liked the statue, but frankly prices of statues for this type of thing are even more out of line than 1/6 scale figures.

With that thing on her chin, she looks like a wannabe cousin of Thanos. Smile

Your right, she does kinda looks like Thanos's little sister.


I really like her main body armor and will try to get it loose someday.
