Supergirl's not a bad start, eh?
I attended Gamescom last week and managed to find a little time between appointments to check out the show floor. And man, what a treat it was! There seemed to be one hall devoted entirely just to 'cool stuff'. There were limited-edition games on sale, items of game-related clothing... but I was particularly impressed with the outstanding figurines on display. The following gallery will let you see them just as I saw them. Isn't technology wonderful?
Armoured Superman variant
But why does Superman need armour?
The figurine you deserve but not the one you can afford.
"Oh! Your crotch is on fire!"
Raiden from Metal Gear Solid
Still trying so hard to be cool. Is he cool yet?
Why so... oh, actually that's a pretty massive grin.
Chibi FFXII Lightning
Kingdom Hearts' Riku and Sora
Captured Sora's cheesy smile perfectly.
Kingdom Hearts 2 themed statuettes
Strange eyes, but still pretty cool. Bit small, though...
Sonic pixel baseball cap
I know it's not a figurine, but this is also cool.
And the grubbiest Pikachu I've ever seen
Obviously, it was dark in the rest of the hall, which made getting clear photos difficult on my phone. And I did wonder why it was quite so dark. UNTIL I had my picture taken with what looked like a furry, cute, 7ft-tall Pikachu. Only when I got the picture back did I realise: Pikachu is filthy. He must spend all day rolling around on the floor. Disgusting rodent.
