hot toys little groot

We still can’t get enough of Baby Groot, especially when the Baby Groot in question is this adorable (and super accurate) version by Hot Toys.

While this version doesn’t actually dance, it is a fantastic replica. The 1/4 Scale Little Groot Collectible features 3 interchangeable head sculpts, movable arms, and a moveable body.

Head after the break to see more of this super cute collectible.

Supernatural ornament lost my shoe

The Winchester Brothers don’t have the best track record when it comes to Christmas, which may be why I love the idea of these Supernatural ornaments so much. They’re made by an artsy gal named Denise and she sells them in her Etsy shop.

She also showed me some very cool upcoming designs for next year, including an idea for a painted wine glass, so I’d say it’s a good idea to check back on her stuff from time to time.

I know it’s probably too late to get these Supernatural ornaments for this year’s decorating, but there’s no reason you can’t get yourself something for next year, right?

Yes, this beautiful recreation of a Hobbit hole from Lord of the Rings hides a litter box for a very lucky cat. It was created by the Hollywood prop builders at Super-Fan Builds for a guy who is a huge Tolkien fan. Everything on it is perfectly cat-safe and there’s even an Eye of Sauron scratching post so your cat can scratch his all-seeing eye out and save the day.

Clearly, the Fellowship didn’t consider using giant cats. It would have saved them a lot of trouble.

hot toys star-lord 1

Peter Quill is no ordinary man. He’s Star-Lord, member of Guardians of the Galaxy. The popularity of the film practically guaranteed we’d get some stunning statues from Hot Toys, and they didn’t disappoint. Their sixth scale Star-Lord looks an awful lot like Chris Pratt and is posable enough to handle all of Quill’s smooth moves. Come on, he has to be able to dance along to the Awesome Mix Vol. 1.

Speaking of the ultimate mix tape, a cassette player and headphones are among Star-Lord’s accessories. Here’s what else he comes with:

Interchangeable masked head sculpt with LED light-up function (red light; battery operated)
Body with over 30 points of articulations
Five (5) pieces of interchangeable gloved palms including:

sideshow indy main

I may have a few issues with Indiana Jones and the Temple Of Doom, but I’m already in love with the new Indiana Jones Temple of Doom Sixth Scale Figure by Sideshow Collectibles.

First of all, the face. That Indy determination-filled face is already captivating, but then you get all kinds of different accessories and different hands to use those accessories. Plus, the Sankara Stones… it’s all cool.

I know, I’m fangirling. I honestly can’t help it.

Penguins are cute. Judge Dredd is a badass. Combine the two and you have the cutest badass in the world. This is an 11.5 cm statue created by Blind Mouse Toys that has turned Judge Dredd into a penguin. He was designed by Daniel Balmforth and Steve Scholz, and painted by sculptor Joe Amaro to look perfectly adorable. He may be the law but he’s going to be hard not to hug.
