It includes Slave Leia, Luke, C-3PO, and a Gammorean guard that are all about the size of the 3.75″ classic Hasbro figures.

Here’s a mashup that you never saw coming. The Wizard of Oz meets Avengers and the Tin Man has never looked so damn scary. The Cowardly Lion, however, makes a perfect Thor with that long, luscious lion mane.

This terrifying 3D illustration is the work of Oliver Pabilona. The concept originated with fellow artist Stjepan Šejic, and Pabilona used that art as a guide to creating his version of a 3D Xenomorph T.Rex. It’s both beautiful and absolutely horrifying.

Hot Toys has revealed a new series of Artist Mix figures designed by Japanese artist Touma. The series includes Ant-Man, Yellowjacket and a special Ant-Man Black-Out version that can only be had when you purchase the deluxe set. Each bobble-head figure is about 13cm tall.

I have to say, that we like these more than the Age Of Ultron Artist Mix line.

Naturally, these are just the first Ant-Man toys in a line of collectibles Hot Toys will reveal leading up to the film’s debut on July 17th. We can’t wait to see their trademark sixth-scale figures.

Stay tuned to Sideshow Collectibles for pricing and release dates.

This is what happens when you let a Final Fantasy director and character designer loose on a Catwoman figure. Tetsuya Nomura’s Play Arts Kai figure design features crazy armor and will include two whip tails (WHIP TAILS!), a small pistol, and a set of extended hand-claws. Pricing hasn’t been announced but if it falls in line with similar figures, then it’ll likely be around $175.

This beautiful image is made of 1,128,960 blocks in Minecraft. The blocks were placed by hand rather than by a computer program and the process took 23 weeks to complete. It’s the painstaking work of Thorlar who created the trio of Kerrigan, Diablo, and Deathwing.
