Visiting the Enterbay Booth at WonderCon 2014

WonderCon 2014 was this past weekend. We had the chance to visit many of our favorite booths from Aspen Comics, Dark Horse, Boom! Studios, and many of our favorite artists and creators. There would also be a few booths that would be a first to see first hand and Enterbay would be one of those booths. We first learned about Enterbay a couple of years ago when we saw their Real Masterpiece Bruce Lee 1/6th scale figures. It would actually be Bruce Lee that would immediately catch our eyes at their booth. 


The likeness was truly amazing. 


The 1/4 Scale Robocop HD Masterpiece from Robocop 3 was also on display. Again the details to Enterbay's figures are truly incredible in the likeness. 





The Robocop 3 HD Masterpiece comes with many great extras including a couple of head sculptures and detailed weapons. 


NBA fans should be very pleased to know that Enterbay has definitely taken their favorite players to a whole new level. The NBA players included Derrick Rose, Lebron James, Kobe Bryant, Blake Griffin, and Michael Jordan.

 Not only has Enterbay created great NBA figures, but they had to create the most realistic Basketball Hoop I have ever seen.

Enterbay definitely has brought the 12" figures to a great level of quality and detail to please the collector today. While Hot Toys may create some of the best in likeness in their figures, Enterbay is definitely right there. If you have not seen what Enterbay has created, you may want to visit their site. 

Pop Culture Shock Toys at Wondercon 2014

We had the opportunity to visit the Pop Culture Shock Toys booth at Wondercon this year. It was great seeing some of the movie, cartoon and gaming characters brought to life with great detail. The details on the 1:4 scale statues and and 1:1 scale busts were equally amazing. Check out pictures below and see the intricacy of some of the famous characters.






Do you remember the movie Legend? This has to be one of the scariest renditions of the demonic Darkness brought to life.


Two fighting games that I loved playing as a kid (and now too) were Street Fighter and Mortal Kombat. A few characters are shown below in 1:4 scale and 1:1 scale.










Pop Culture Shock Toys did not just stop with creating amazing 1/4 scale statues and 1/1 scale busts, but would also create a life size Akuma statue! Chun Li even hung out for great photo ops. 


While we decided to join in on a photo op, Chun Li must not have liked the way we were looking at her. 

Pop Culture Shock Toys definitely had one of our favorite booths at WonderCon!
