Entertainment Earth has revealed another SDCC exclusive and this one is a seriously deluxe Duderino. The Big Lebowski The Dude Deluxe 12-Inch Action Figure, to be precise.

Made by Bif Bang Pow!, the figure has 25 points of articulation and comes with interchangeable hands and movie-inspired accessories like the bowling ball, bowling bag, sunglasses, cell phone, White Russian, jelly shoes, and two multiple piece cloth outfits. It also includes a talking key chain that speaks eight phrases from the movie. It also comes with the The Dude’s signature rug—naturally.

saberforge

I’m fairly sure that every Star Wars fan either has, or dreams of having a high end lightsaber replica. The more accurate the better. Saber Forge can definitely help you out with that. In fact, they want to give you the ability to build and customize your own lightsaber.

To that end. Saber Forge has launched a Kickstarter for Adaptive Saber Parts:

Adaptive Saber Parts are an easy to use modular system that lets anyone construct their very own movie quality custom saber. We have lowered the barrier to entry, now you don’t need expensive machinery, soldering equipment, or years of prop building experience to make your very own custom saber, all you need is your imagination, and Adaptive Saber Parts.

With our initial release we will offer over a hundred unique metal parts in three different finishes putting millions of different design configurations at your fingertips, and every month we will release a new expansion set, making the possibilities endless.

In addition we will offer “plug and play” no solder electronics kits for upgrading your custom saber hilt to a dueling saber with a light up blade, or a fully functional hero level prop with lights, motion detection, and sound.

Considering building your own saber is part of the path to becoming a Jedi, I think this is pretty darn cool.

groot 2

Entertainment Earth was kind enough to send us a solar-powered dancing Baby Groot, and I have to say that we were impressed with his dancing prowess and endurance. All he needed was a little light (as all trees do) to get his groove on.

I woke up and there he was, dancing at the break of dawn.

The party continues after the break…

Entertainment Earth has unveiled another SDCC exclusive, and this time it’s a 20-inch tall limited edition Link action figure as he appears in The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword.

This Link has premium metallic silver chainmail as well as metallic accents not found on any other Link in this scale. His Hylian Shield features a golden Triforce and special gold and silver paint on both the shield and his Master Sword. Plus, he’s packaged like the classic golden Zelda cartridges for the NES and Nintendo 64.

As with any of the EE SDCC exclusives, this item will first be sold at San Diego Comic-Con 2015 at the Entertainment Earth Booth #2343. If supplies remain after the show, your order will be filled and shipped to you at the end of July 2015. So, I usually suggest trying to get it at the show, but you can pre-order just in case.

This floating fish dome creates a little bubble of water that floats on your pond so the fish can pop up and see what’s happening on the surface. It also gives you a unique view of the fish which, is both cool and a little weird. The dome measures 31″ across with enough room for a couple of fish to swim up and say hello.

We recently posted about the new Avengers Age of Ultron Series 2 Collectible Set from Hot Toys and they look pretty cute (especially Black Widow!), but if you’ve been wondering what they’re like up close and personal, we have good news. Sideshow Collectibles sent us the Avengers: Age of Ultron Collectible Set for review.

If you’re unfamiliar, Cosbabies are wacky vinyl baby heroes from Hot Toys—the same company that brings us all of those ridiculously detailed sixth-scale figures. Cosbabies, on the other hand, measure 9.5cm tall and have bobble-heads. So, rule #1, don’t take them out of the pack by their head or you’ll accidentally behead Captain America like I did. However, the cool thing is that if you pop their head off, they’re held on by a magnet, so it’s a pretty easy fix.

While many of the Cosbabies are sold separately, this collectible set features 7 Cosbabies: Iron Man Mark XLIII, Captain America, Thor, Iron Legion, Ultron Sentry, and a Ultron Sentry (Prime) which is only available in the set.

In the end though, these figures are all about fun. They’re cute, fit on your desk with ease, and come out to about $12.50 a figure, which isn’t bad at all for what you’re getting.

I took some pictures of the Cosbabies “in battle”. It got tense there for a minute, but let’s just say the good guys won.

Check them out after the break.

agent carter pop

I don’t know about you, but I’ve been waiting for a Peggy Carter Funko POP! since Agent Carter first started airing. When season 2 got confirmed, I figured it was a shoe in and, whataya know!

From her signature red hat to that vial of Steve Rogers’ blood, this POP! is pure Peggy and she’s utterly perfect.

viking-ship-fire-pit

This Viking ship fire pit a serious backyard accessory that’s made from 20 gauge metal and measures 40 inches in length and 16 inches wide. Etsy shop owner Imagine Metal Art added awesome details like the viking symbols in the sails, ores for extra balance, and a body that looks like a ferocious dragon. You can even request your own symbols at no extra cost.

May I suggest watching Game of Thrones and then going outside to burn some marshmallows… to death?
