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…]

Arrow fans have been telling Stephen Amell that he should compete on American Ninja Warrior for years. Back in 2014, the show even reached out to his manager in hopes of making it happen. Amell turned that opportunity down citing a lack of time in his schedule, but it seems that Salt Lake City Comic-Con finally “pushed him over the edge”.

Over the weekend Amell wrote the following on Facebook:

Ok… It happened. The people of Salt Lake City and the great State of Utah pushed me over the edge. NBC American Ninja Warrior – in 2017, I would like to compete on your show.

I’m sure that Supergirl stuntwoman Jessie Graff’s dominance on the show has also proven to be an inspiration. A little superhero competition is hard to resist.

Which is cuter? Funko’s Suicide Squad Pop figures or Harley and The Joker from the Nendoroid line? I would say it’s a toss up, but the Nendoroid figures seem more likely to come alive at night and murder you in your sleep. You know, just in case that’s a dealbreaker for you.

The Harley figure comes with three face plates (gritting teeth, blowing bubble gum, and smiling) as well as a base and bat. The Joker comes with three faces (so serious, smiling, and shock), along with electroshock tools and a straight razor. They stand at four inches, and they run for about ¥4,500 each (roughly $44).

If you were a fan of Mythbusters, you will certainly have noticed that the final season of the show was produced without the involvement of the build team, Grant Imahara, Tory Belleci, and Kari Byron. However, it was recently revealed that the trio will be reuniting for a new show on Netflix that will debut later this year.

Work on the production, dubbed White Rabbit Project, began in May and will cover “topics as diverse as jailbreaks, superpower technology, heists and crazy world war two weapons”. Mythbusters producer Beyond Productions will once again be at the helm, and although it is not a direct spinoff, it has been described as “Mythbusters in Wonderland”.

White Rabbit Project is currently slated to debut on December 9. Check out pics from the set below. [click to continue…]


The second I saw my first Death Trooper in the Rogue One teaser trailer, I wanted to see what Hot Toys would do with it. Now I know and it’s everything I hoped it would be.

This 1/6 scale trooper has a helmet with green LEDs, interchangeable hands, a Death Trooper blaster rifle with strap, a blaster pistol, a shoulder pouch, a specially designed figure stand and more.

In other words, it’s gorgeous and it’s available for pre-order now. Check out more pics below. [click to continue…]
