Or maybe he’s just going to give him a massage.
QMx have unveiled two new additions to its Master Series of articulated figures – Captain James T. Kirk and Commander Spock. You might recognize them from an old TV show called Star Trek that aired for a brief time in the ’60s. Obscure, I know.
These figures feature more than 30 points of articulation, screen-accurate clothing and incredibly detailed sculpts of the actors – Shatner personally approved his likeness, while Nimoy’s was approved by his Estate. They ain’t cheap, though. We’re talking $179.99 a pop for the standard versions with limited-edition variants including Kirk’s Phaser Rifle and Spock’s Lute fetching an extra $20. But for this sort of detail, it’s a price some collectors will consider well worth it.
These figures will be available for preorder on qmxonline.com starting on June 23, at 10 AM PT. The figures will debut at SDCC at QMx booth #4145 in limited quantities.

Official MST3K Lego sets are, to put it mildly, a longshot—but it’s fun to dream about.
Clearly, harsh reality hasn’t deterred Sparkless9 who delivered another MST3K concept that focuses on the entire Satellite of Love. Features include: [click to continue…]
If you’ve ever bought an Iron Man action figure but silently thought to yourself, “Man, I wish this came with a tiny reproduction of some IKEA furniture,” then I have good news for you, weirdo.
Comicave Studios have announced a Comic-Con exclusive 6″ figure of the Mark 42 armor as seen in Iron Man 3 that comes with a selection of alternate hands, repulsor blasts and – no, but yes! – a teeny tiny couch. [click to continue…]

Standing 27-inches tall, this Voltron maquette from Sideshow Collectibles is made up of 106 individual polyresin, metal, and premium grade PVC pieces, with eyes that light up and a 14.5″ wing diameter. It also has a whopping $1,250.00 price tag, which is a helluva lot to pay for a Voltron figure that doesn’t break down into individual bots.
Plus, there’s a transforming Toy Story Voltron coming soon for less than $200. How can you compete with that?

Sometimes you see a toy and you think, “Huh. I’m not sure that needs to exist.” This is not one of those toys.
Call it Voltron, call it a Megazord, call it whatever you like – this Toy Story “Chogokin combiner” from Tamashii Nations takes several of the classic toys from Andy’s toy chest and turns them into robots which combine to form one 9″-tall mega-awesome cowboy-themed robot-y thing. What do the individual toys turn into? I’m very glad you asked – nothing. But their combined form looks incredibly cool.
The set drops in Japan this November, priced at $169.99. The set will eventually make its way to the US, though that’ll likely come with a higher price tag. Tamashii Nations have also hinted at a second model based on Buzz Lightyear possibly coming at some point in the future.

LEGO enthusiast LegoSpencer has faithfully recreated the TIE Fighter hangar from Star Wars: The Force Awakens. You know, from that scene where Poe and Finn totally steal a shiny black TIE Fighter shortly before nosediving into Jakku?
It took about six weeks to make, and contains a number of lovely little details that I damn near swooned over. You can get a closer look in the breakdown video below. [click to continue…]
