Kotobukiya Wants To Remind That No One Can Hear You Scream In Space!
Revealed today are two fantastic looking ARTFX+ statues from Kotobukiya. Both are from the hugely popular sci-fi properties as well. The first is one they teased the other day, Captain Phasma from the upcoming Star Wars: The Force Awakens movie. Standing in 1/10th scale, this mighty warrior of the First Order can be configured in two posing options, with her rifle at the ready, or at her side. The Captain Phasma ARTFX+ Statue is priced at 6,800 yen and will be available in April 2016.
Along with the badass looking Captain Phasma, Kotobukiya has unleashed the Aliens Xenomorph Warrior ARTFX+ Statue to terrorize us all! This incredibly detailed statue can be posed in a variety of options as the arms can be moved. It also comes with a great looking dio display base that recreates the duct system that the creators used in the 1986 Aliens movie to get at its victims. The Xenomorph Warrior ARTFX+ Statue is priced at 7,200 yen and will be shipping some time in March 2016.

12 MONKEYS Season 2 Trailer
Syfy has posted a first look at the second season of 12 Monkeys with the first trailer. The series debuted early this year and much to my surprise was actually good. I wasn’t sure how they would translate the film into an ongoing series, but after the first couple of episodes, I was hooked. Now where does it go from here? Well for starters, looks like more time travel and lots of it. We won’t get any answers though until April 2016. Yeah, I know that is still a ways off, but I’ll take what we can get for now.

[RUMOR] Is The INHUMANS Movie First Casualty In Marvel Studios Power Struggle?
According to a report from Bleeding Cool, Marvel Studios is taking the Inhumans movie off their schedule. For now this is a rumor, because the source was overheard in a bar, but according to said source, the struggle between Marvel Studios’ boss Kevin Feige and Marvel CEO Isaac Perlmutter continues and the Inhumans will be the first to suffer.
Since the TV side of things in the Marvel Cinematic Universe is currently heavily focusing on the Inhumans, and since Perlmutter is still in charge of Marvel Television, it looks like Feige is firing a shot at him and will be removing the Inhumans from the Marvel Cinematic Universe schedule. Obviously until some official word is given by Marvel we should just take this as a rumor. Still, what do you think of this news?
UPDATE: According to Heroic Hollywood, this rumor is “completely bunk.” Both them and HitFix have confirmed with sources that this is not true.
