This looks a lot like what that one really mean and crazy kid did in Toy Story. Yamaguchi Katuhisa took an R2-D2 figure and mashed him up with other characters. Now, R2-D2’s rage has been unleashed.

That’s the real Heath Ledger as Joker along with a miniature that’s so good you’d be hard pressed to tell the difference between the two. It’s the work of DeviantArtist Xiang Zhang aka NightT47, who resides in Shanghai, China. He works with 1/6 scale models, painting them and adding hair that is incredibly realistic.

In addition to Joker, he’s created versions of Scarlett Johansson, Christian Bale and Tom Hiddleston’s Loki that hold up to the masterpieces created by Hot Toys.

atari_2600_action_figures_by_dan_polydoris_1-620x827

Dan Polydoris specializes in making custom action figures, and a few years back he decided to create some figures that were inspired by old school Atari 2600 console games. Now he’s back with four more designs.

Even if the games didn’t have “characters” per se, he would use the box art as inspiration. This round of figures were sourced from existing Kenner Star Wars line figures (which is why the Space Invader’s alien has a certain Greedo look about him), and I have to say that Dan really did a stellar job. What do you think?

Check out the rest of the figures after the break…

Legends of Cthulhu Action Figures are something I didn’t know I needed until I saw it. I’m betting more than a few of you will feel the same way.

These 80’s Kenner style action figures based on the writing of H.P. Lovecraft have five points of articulation and come with character specific accessories. Each of the four figures is sold separately. They are:

  • The Professor (includes revolver and Cthulhu idol)
  • The Deep One (includes spear)
  • The Cultist (includes staff, dagger, and removable ceremonial mask and robe)
  • The Spawn of Cthulhu (includes Necronomicon and rubbery, removable wings)

Best accessories ever.

black series

The newest wave of Star Wars Black Series action figures is out and they look great. This set includes Commander Cody, IG-88, and Leia in her Boushh disguise (she looks like a totaly BAMF). The detail on all of them is pretty awesome.

If you missed it, Wave 8 looks pretty great as well. Stormtrooper Han and Luke, Emperor Palpatine, and a Clone Captain make up that case.

Wave 8 is estimated to arrive in April, Wave 9 is expected in June.

Entertainment Earth has both waves, plus past Black Series figures in cases and broken into single figures available to order or pre-order now.

If you mix action figures, Photoshop, great photography and a playfully twisted imagination, you come up with the magic of Edy Hardjo’s work. We recently posted one of his pictures, but now we’ve hit the motherload.

The results are a pretty dang amusing and, occasionally, a little NSFW. I think the one with the mouse is my personal favorite.

The Funko new item madness continues with their new 3 3/4 Karate Kid action figures. Daniel, Mr. Miyago, Ali, Kreese, and Johnny are all coming to a store near you because Funko knows that nostalgia is for everyone.

You even get Daniel in both his karate outfit and his fence painting outfit because, aside from his shower costume, it really is his second most iconic look.

The figures are estimated for an April arrival. Head after the break to see more figures.

Great news for all of you DC Entertainment Television fans (especially those of you who love Felicity Smoak). DC Entertainment’s chief creative officer, Geoff Johns, announced via an email to IGN that we’ll be getting six new toys and prop replicas from Arrow, The Flash, and Constantine – including a Felicity Smoak action figure!

Felicity and Diggle will be first time action figures and, while Arsenal and Captain Cold have been figures previously, these will be the first ones based off the TV shows. For prop replica collectors, keep an eye out for The Flash’s Reverse-Flash ring and Constantine’s Helmet of Doctor Fate.

In other words, there’s some pretty cool stuff coming somewhere around October 2015.

These Avengers: Age of Ultron action figures aren’t what we have come to expect from Hot Toys. Their figures are normally super realistic, but these guys are downright cute. These small-scale vinyl toys are a new line for the company.

It’s called the “Artist Mix” and features Iron Man, Captain America, Ultron Prime, several Ultron Sentries and the Hulkbuster all designed by Japanese artist Touma. They each measure 14 cm tall except for the 22 cm Hulkbuster.

Details on price and availability have not been announced thus far.
