Once again, Hot Toys has produced a figure that is so detailed that it might actually have a soul. Seriously, I wouldn’t be surprised if this 1/6th scale Captain America figure from The Avengers: Age Of Ultron came to life during a thunderstorm. From Hot Toys:

The movie-accurate Captain America Collectible Figure is specially crafted based on the image of Chris Evans as Captain America/Steve Rogers in Avengers: Age of Ultron, featuring a newly painted helmeted head sculpt, a newly painted Steve Rogers head sculpt, finely tailored Captain America suit, magnetic metal Captain America shield with retractable handles, and a specially designed figure stand.

Mondo, the art gallery and online store, recently unveiled a new Iron Giant Deluxe Figure and it is crazy accurate. Even The Iron Giant director Brad Bird approves. So many feels.

Mondo notes:

Mondo worked to obtain the digital files used in the film to create the most accurate and detailed Iron Giant figure to date. The figure features over 30 points of articulation and a variety of accessories allowing you to transform the Iron Giant into all of his notable incarnations. You’ll receive two interchangeable heads with light-up eyes, a magnetic “S” that can be detached from a Seafood sign and attached to his chest, switch-out “War Arm” when things get tense, a Hogarth mini-figure, and of course, a girder to munch on. Additionally, the figure includes a sound feature with favorite Iron Giant quotes from the film. The limited edition “Hand Under Foot” accessory (the Iron Giant’s detached hand that gets loose in the farmhouse) will be available exclusively through Mondo’s website. The figure will be sold for $300. A limited edition version of the figure with the “Hand Under Foot” accessory will be sold for $315

The Deluxe figure should ship during the third quarter of this year, so start preordering now!

It has been established that the undead can be effectively neutralized by destroying their brains, and Nerf has discovered that their skulls are soft enough to be taken out with foam darts. The fact that the ammo is reusable makes this a major win.

Enter their new “The Zombie Strike Doominator”. In addition to having a creative and badass name, the Doominator resembles the M23 grenade launcher and comes equipped with four revolving dart drums for a total of 24 rounds of foam firepower.

The Doominator is expected to hit store shelves this fall for $39.99, hopefully before the inevitable zombie apocalypse finally arrives.

x-wing rocker 1

It’s never too early to let your child pilot a spaceship. That’s especially true if said spaceship only rocks back and forth and can’t actually launch into a dogfight. This Star Wars X-wing rocker by Steve’s Wooden Toys fits the safety bill, and it’s quite the sight. It’s handcrafted from pine, rimu, and macrocarpa woods and features a removable R2-D2 so your kid can take him everywhere.

It was available for sale as of October to New Zealand residents. If you could get the X-wing rocker and make this AT-AT one, you’d have the coolest toys this side of Tatooine.

Check out more photos of the beautiful rocker after the break.

sideshow vader main

If I had the ability to use the Force, I’d like to say I’d use the power for good, but I’m pretty sure I’d use it to Jedi Mind Trick Sideshow Collectibles into sending me their new Darth Vader Sixth Scale Figure by Hot Toys.

All of their recent Star Wars figures, from Luke to Han & Chewie have been insanely good and this Star Wars Episode IV: A New Hope figure is no exception.

This figure includes, “intricately-constructed Darth Vader armor and helmet, specially tailored suit, built-in sound effect function with Darth Vader’s breathing sound, LED-lighted lightsaber and belt, a finely made Interrogator Droid, and a specially designed figure stand.”

All in all, it’s just as badass as Vader himself is and I’m pretty sure Star Wars fans are gonna love it.

The figure is estimated to arrive sometime in September, but it’s available for pre-order now.

potted groot 1

The concept of Groot regrowing from a single twig isn’t unique to the Guardians of the Galaxy film. That happened in the comics, and the twig was usually stuck in a pot. Not wanting to miss out on the Groot action, Gentle Giant has released a comic book inspired version of Groot in a pot. It’s not as cute as baby Groot (what can be?!), but it’s still pretty darn great. And as an added bonus, this Groot comes with a set of holiday decorations so you can make him festive for Christmas next year.

Today in impossibly cool Darth Vader figures, I present the Square-Enix Variant Play Arts Kai Darth Vader.

The stylized figure itself is very cool, but the arcing lightsaber and the force energy flames are what really stand out here.
