Triad Toys has announced pre-orders for its Soul Caliber 4 12-inch Taki figure is currently going on at the company website.

Slated for an end-of-March 2009 release, Taki will come with the updated Otaku 1.2 body with metal pinned hips as well as the highly anticipated Bullet Time display stand. Keep your eyes peeled for more characters from the Soul Calibur 4 line-up in the coming months!

In addition to the game figure pre-order announcement, Triad Toys also announced plans to bring John Carter of Mars figures to market.  The complete solicitation is after the jump.  I’m sure you’re already wondering if the figures are going to be faithful to the book.  Uh, no.  No nekkid figures and statues for the horndogs, as these will be modernized concepts.

    That outfit appears to be made of fabric. If that’s the case, you know that whether she actually comes nekkid or not, she’ll wind up that way somewhere — possibly on an episode of The Big Bang Theory.

    You know, she sorta reminds me of the manequins in Miami. They were all disturbingly nippular, too.
