Disney Princesses are prime POP figure territory, which is why Funko has gone ahead and redesigned Ariel, Belle, Cinderella, Rapunzel, and Tiana to “show off their beautiful gowns”. The figures are available to pre-order now with a special sparkly Ariel coming exclusively to Hot Topic this Fall. Check out the entire lineup below. [click to continue…]

LEGO fan chumuhou built this incredible replica of the ED-209 robot from Robocop. Apparently, he spend a great deal time ensuring that the robot had mobility in the legs but, thankfully, I’m guessing that the problem with stairs still hasn’t been worked out.

It’s 2016, and Warner Bros. has decided that now is the perfect time to release merch for Batman: The Animated Series, a TV show that ended seventeen actual Earth years ago (or, if you don’t count B:TAS and The New Batman Adventures as one series, over two full decades ago). It’s a beloved show that we would love to see revived, but for now new merchandise will have to do. And, if it’s all as cool as this Batman: The Animated Series View-Master looks to be, I’m all for it. [click to continue…]

The ARVO Brothers have been recreating elements from the Alien movies in LEGO as part of a book project for several years now. This spectacular chestburster is an improvement on a design they released back in 2007.

It wasn’t enough for them to simply recreate the sordid creature in LEGO bricks, was it? Oh no, they took it a step further, adding LEGO blood and LEGO viscera to the mix, resulting in this gruesome but impressive display. Take a closer look in the pic below. [click to continue…]

Another day, another set of Funko Pops you’ll want to buy. Is there a 12 step program for Funko addiction? I may need that.

Five new Pops are coming for Dishonored 2: Emily, Corvo, and the Outsider will be available everywhere. The unmasked Emily is a Target exclusive, while the unmasked Corvo will be available only at GameStop. Check out more pics below. [click to continue…]

Whether you liked it or not, Suicide Squad is a movie with quite a lot of things going on—from new versions of perennial DC villain favorites, to big-screen debuts of long-loved characters. One of the things that definitely didn’t happen in the movie, though, was the Joker donning Batfleck’s snazzy new duds (unless it happened in a deleted scene. As you probably know by now, much of the Jared Leto’s performance ended up on the cutting room floor apparently). That didn’t stop Hot Toys from announcing an action figure of literally that very thing, though. Heavens, no!

We have seen this sort of thing before. Loot Crate included a Joker-themed Batman Funko Pop Vinyl in one of their crates back in 2014, but this is the first time Jared Leto’s 2edgy4U Joker and the Batfleck Batsuit have been combined into one delicious something-or-other, and whether you’re a fan of DC’s current cinematic vision or not it’s actually kind of a cool concept.

The figure is revealed to be an “exclusive item only available in selected markets,” though no word yet on what those markets are or when it’ll be released. Click on for more photos of this awesome thing below. [click to continue…]

Darth Vader Simon is a twist on the classic Simon memory game. You know, the one with all the flashing lights and frustration. However, this one plays the Imperial March and Darth Vader’s breathing sounds, which will likely up the stress factor of the game. The price of failure will undoubtedly be very high.

If you want to see the Simon game in action, check out the video on io9.

When it comes to the classic Batman TV series and film starring Adam West as the Caped Crusader, people fall into two categories – those who look at the cheesy kitschness of it all and think it’s unwatchable guff, and those who embrace its goofy charms. If you fall into the latter camp, you’ll be pleased to hear that Hot Toys is adding to their classic Batman lineup with phenomenal figure based on the Joker as portrayed by the late, great Cesar Romero.

The figure was revealed at the ‘Batman 100%’ event in Japan and features Romero’s trademark mustache (which, as you probably know, he refused to shave off for the role). It also features a highly-detailed suit and a Total Dehydrator accessory, on the off-chance you and/or the Joker need to totally dehydrate something. Take another look at the Clown Prince of Crime and his moisture-stealing weapon below. [click to continue…]

Spin Master have revealed two really nifty Star Wars drone sets that are definitely worth getting excited about. [click to continue…]

We knew that Sideshow was preparing to launch a life-size R2-D2 figure, and that dream is now a reality. A very, very expensive reality.

The Limited Edition R2-D2 Life-Size Figure features a brand new sculpt of our old friend. More realistic than ever before, this representation features screen accurate lights and sounds. The lights and sounds can be triggered with the included remote control that stores in a hidden compartment just next to the speaker. For those wishing to add even more depth to the story of R2, his dome can be rotated to the right and left, along with the holographic projectors. R2 is standing atop a Millennium Falcon themed base, to give an added air of presence to your collection.

I know it’s not something everyone can afford, but if you can, now’s your chance to have an R2 just chillin’ in your house. Meanwhile, I’ll start playing the lotto. Check out more pics below. [click to continue…]
