Mark Hamill's Other Joker Incarnation Is Getting An Incredible Statue

When you think of the Mark Hamill Joker, it's easy to recall his iconic turn in Batman: The Animated Series and the DCAU.

Did Yoda And Obi-Wan Screw Princess Leia Over?

Sorry to forego my usual introductory nonsense, but I wanted to let you know that today’s installment of “Postal Apocalypse” is one of my favorites.

Because otherwise we'd all be saying "hoary hosts of Albuquerque." This is the crap you think about when TVs stopped working 30 years ago. » 4/08/15 1:00pm 4/08/15 1:00pm

Finally, Someone Is Bringing Back DC's Retro Figure Playsets

The revival of retro toys based on the action figures of yesteryear is perhaps at its height right now — but one area where most lines are slipping up is in the distinct lack of retro playsets.

Closer Look At Play Arts Kai's New Batman Reveals The Swishiest Bat-Cape

Last week we got a few teaser images for Play Arts Kai's latest Batman figure, and while it wasn't up to the usual craziness levels we've come to expect from Square-Enix, it looks great.

Part of what makes Square-Enix's Play Arts Kai line great is its willingness to go completely insane when it comes to creating a variant for a figure — especially for their Batman figures. But sometimes they don't need to rely on batshit insanity for a good figure. Sometimes it just needs to look fantastic. » 3/18/15 5:57pm 3/18/15 5:57pm
