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 Yesterday 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 Thursday 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 Tuesday 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

What Goes Into Turning Comic Book Art Into Comic Book Action Figures

DC's "Designer Series" toyline has been out a while now, but it still manages to impress with how it translates the art of Greg Capullo, Jae Lee, and more into toys. DC recently posted a blog about the process behind the line, and while it doesn't say much, it's a nice excuse to go behind the scenes on making great… » 4/10/15 3:30pm 4/10/15 3:30pm

The New Terminator Genisys Figure Is Basically Old Arnold Schwarzenegger

I mean yeah, he has a shotgun, but the first revealed Terminator Genisys figure from NECA could just as easily double as an "Old Man Arnie" figure, regardless of the fact he's meant to be a Killer Robot. In fact, now I just kind of want an Arnold Schwarzenegger toy line. Think of all the Gubernatorial variants! » 4/08/15 12:00am 4/08/15 12:00am

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. Figures Toy Company is changing that with their line of retro DC action figures though, and it's off to a great start. » 4/06/15 12:33am 4/06/15 12:33am

These Aren't The Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle Figures You'd Be Hoping For

So last year's Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles wasn't great — and many fans were displeased at the "realistic" designs of the Turtles themselves, noses and all. So Three Zero's latest toys being based on those designs may not be the best news, but even then, they still make for some cool looking toys. » 4/03/15 10:37pm 4/03/15 10:37pm

Even Unpainted, This Alien Toy Is The Perfect Blend Of Cute And Scary

The alien from, well, Alien is an iconic sci-fi horror monster, a wonderfully scary creation. But when you chibi-fi it, some of that creepiness is replaced by gosh-darned cuteness — which in turn adds a whole other layer of weirdness. How can something be so cute and so creepy? » 4/03/15 7:28pm 4/03/15 7:28pm

The First-Ever 1:6 Stan Lee Figure Is Equal Parts Amazing And Terrifying

After many years helping to create superhero icons alongside the likes of Jack Kirby, Steve Ditko, and many other creators, Stan Lee is getting the honour many of his characters have had for decades: An action figure! It is, of course, as wonderful and as weird as a Stan Lee figure should be. » 4/03/15 12:20pm 4/03/15 12:20pm
