The Force Awakens' Cool New Stormtrooper Has a Cool New Action Figure, Too

Last night we got to see a totally badass (and perhaps more than a little foolhardy) Stormtrooper go toe-to-toe with Finn in The Force Awakens’ latest TV spot. Suitably impressed by his slick baton moves? You’ll soon be able to own one as part of Bandai’s fantastic Star Wars figuarts range. »11/19/15 2:40pm11/19/15 2:40pm


This Samurai Spider-Man Figure Does Whatever a Japanese Spider-Man Can

Tamashii Nation’s amazing Star Wars “movie realization” series, which takes the Galactic Empire’s most iconic designs and turns them into armor for classical Japanese samurai warriors, is absolutely fantastic—but it looks like their next addition to the line from the world of Marvel comic books. Behold, Spider-Samurai! »11/06/15 1:50pm11/06/15 1:50pm

Bandai's Captain Phasma Figure Is Totally Badass

Okay, so we’ve not seen much of The Force Awakens’ Captain Phasma in action so far. But we know that a), she has amazing shiny armor, b) she’s played by Game of Thrones’ Gwendoline Christie, and c) she’s got a cool cape.

Bandai's Samurai Star Wars Figures Have Gotten Even Better

Bandai’s “Movie Realisation” Star Wars figures—which take the Empire and turn them into ancient samurai with flintlocks and katanas rather than blasters and lightsabers—are fantastic. But now the line’s got a few more additions that make it even cooler. Sandtroopers! Royal Guards! Boba Fett! Oh my. »8/27/15 8:45pm8/27/15 8:45pm

A New Gundam Anime Means There's New Gundam Toys

Mobile Suit Gundam and model kits go hand in hand—the plastic kits arguably saved the series from obscurity and helped turn it into an anime legend. So inevitably the announcement of a new series in the franchise, naturally, that means there’s a whole slew of gorgeous looking toys to go with it.… »7/16/15 1:00am7/16/15 1:00am

Bandai's Samurai Star Wars Toys Get Royal Guards, Boba Fett, And Drums

We’ve seen Bandai’s “Movie Realisation” takes on Star Wars before, turning Darth Vader and his Stormtroopers into Samurai — but now the line is expanding into amazing looking versions of the Royal Guards, Boba Fett and, as befitting any Star Wars toy line, more Stormtrooper variants than you can shake a stick at. »4/24/15 12:00am4/24/15 12:00am

Take A Look At The Inner Workings Of A Gundam With This Great Model Kit

Anyone who's put together a Gundam Model kit know that the models usually house a lot of little pieces and articulation joints within the plastic shell — but this new one tries to show you what would be underneath the armour of an actual Gundam, and looks pretty fabulous while doing so. »3/27/15 5:00am3/27/15 5:00am

Not Content With Branded Real Food, Sailor Moon Gets Branded Fake Food

The 20th anniversary of the Sailor Moon Manga's release, as well as the launch of Sailor Moon Crystal, has seen kind of an explosion in Sailor Moon marketing mania recently. We've had tortilla chips, we've had animé contacts, and now the Sailor Senshi are getting into... the tiny, replica food market? Huh. »3/04/15 7:40pm3/04/15 7:40pm
