Melting Is Now One of Many, Many Terrible Ways a Stormtrooper Can Die

Stormtroopers are the disposable pawns of the Star Wars universe, and there’s more ways for them to die than movie spin-offs planned for the next 20 years. But in addition to dying from blaster fire, TIE fighter crashes, Death Star explosions, and lightsaber attacks, it appears that melting is yet another peril the… » 4/24/15 3:30am Friday 3:30am

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 12:00am Friday 12:00am

Harley Quinn's Alter-Ego Is Getting An Action Figure For The First Time

In a industry of endless variant figures, I was honestly kind of surprised that Harleen Quinzel, the Psychiatrist that becomes Harley Quinn, has never had an action figure before — and yet, 23 years after her début, here we are: the toy for people who prefer craziness in a lab coat rather than a harlequin’s outfit.

Why Wait For Official Daredevil Toys When There's Great Custom Figures?

If you’re anything like me, the moment you finished tearing your way through Daredevil on Netflix, you wanted a little Matt Murdock for your toy shelf as soon as possible.

With Sincerity: I Want This Mass Effect Talking Elcor Plush Toy

Uncontrollable Glee: This is the best. Mass Effect fans are already fond of the alien Elcor, a race of massive creatures that preface all of their sentences with an emotion to convey tone (they also make great Shakespearean actors) — but I can almost guarantee they’ll be even fonder of this adorable plush version. » 4/20/15 5:11pm 4/20/15 5:11pm

Bandai's War Machine Toy Comes Complete With Patriotic Action Features

Well, I say that, but it basically means Bandai's latest Age of Ultron Figuarts toy can be posed saluting. There's pictures of this thing swooshing around, firing plastic laser blasts, being a badass — but a shot of a little saluting action figure is easily the best thing about it. » 4/17/15 7:40pm 4/17/15 7:40pm

Bruce Timm's New Justice League Are Getting Their Own Snazzy Figures

Bruce Timm's latest entry into the DCAU, Justice League: Gods and Monsters, features a pretty radical new version of DC Comic's trinity.

Even The Background Star Wars Characters Are Getting Expensive Toys

Star Wars has a long history of merchandising everything, right down to the characters you see in the movies for mere moments. Who doesn't remember heroes like Toryn Farr, Willrow Hood or Yak Face (apologies, Saelt-Marae)? Now even characters seen for literal seconds are getting the Hot Toys treatment. » 4/16/15 12:03am 4/16/15 12:03am

Funko Are Bringing Old School Star Wars Shogun Warriors To Celebration

Later this week, Star Wars Celebration will kick off, bringing with it a veritable host of exclusive goodies for fans to spend their hard-earned credits on. But Funko's bringing along something rather neat: Star Wars toys that mix retro nostalgia for the Kenner toys with nostalgia for old Japanese robot toys. » 4/14/15 12:00am 4/14/15 12:00am

War Machine Joins The Age Of Ultron Merchandise Party

Why isn't War Machine a member of the movies' Avengers? I mean, when you think about it, he's basically Tony Stark, in terms of battle capability. Hell, he even shows up to their parties. So why isn't he? Tell you what, while I ponder this, you stare lovingly into the eyes of mini-Don Cheadle here, the latest Hot Toys… » 4/10/15 6:40pm 4/10/15 6:40pm

We Might Have Reached Peak Retro Figure Nonsense

Old school action figures are in the middle of a renaissance. You've got Funko's Reaction line emulating the old style for new properties, or Jumbo-sized recreations of classic superhero figures. The next logical step? Apparently, it's unarticulated, plus sized statues of said retro figures. » 4/10/15 4:30pm 4/10/15 4:30pm
