When we were kids, we loved to have superhero battles with action figures. Now you can bring that same superhero battle action to your chess board with these chess pieces and collector magazines from Eaglemoss Publications.

Each character is cast from a specially formulated metalized resin and painted by expert model makers. Plus, they include a 16-page magazine with comic artwork and chess tips.

With characters from both the Marvel and DC universes, you can cast some of your favorite characters as key pieces and battle.

Haha…look at the giant heads on these blind-boxed Power Rangers figures! Let’s hope they don’t run into a tribe of headhunters that know karate.

Each measures about 3″ tall and has 10 points of articulation. They also have removable helmets and a few accessories, so they’ve got a little more going for them than your typical blind-box figure (hence the $12.99 price tag). The first series features the 5 primary Rangers, White Ranger, Green Ranger, Rita Repulsa, Lord Zedd and Goldar.

The horrible box art on the 1987 Mega Man NES game is legendary. In fact, it became infamous enough to make its way into Street Fighter vs Tekken as a playable character. Now we have this action figure that is both hideous and fantastic. Just look at that gut.

This is the Egg Attack Spider-Man figure from Beast Kingdom. He measures 6″ tall and is fully articulated with 5 sets of hands and three plastic web fluid attachments. He’s freaky and cute at the same time with a gigantic head that makes him look like he should topple right over. Based on the character in The Amazing Spider-Man 2, it is due out in Japan this coming April and is already available for preorder.

new 52 superman and batman

The new Medicom Real Action Heroes New 52 Batman and Superman figures definitely look good. They stand 12′ tall with standard RAH articulation and cloth capes. I really like the details in the sculpts.

They’re currently estimated to arrive sometime in August and supply is likely to be fairly limited as they’re imported. So if you want them badly enough, pre-ordering is probably the way to go if you’re willing to drop a ton of money on them.

revol R2

The Star Wars line of figures by Revoltech gets a new addition in the form of R2-D2.

This little droid is almost 4″ tall, comes with an add-on pull-back action attachment so he can scoot around, and his “eye” light changes color as you turn his head. He also has flexible ankles, which opens up your posing possibilities.

vader

Today in impossibly cool Darth Vader figures, I present the Square-Enix Variant Play Arts Kai Darth Vader.

The stylized figure itself is very cool, but the arcing lightsaber and the force energy flames are what really stand out here.

Not only is Seth Green a funny guy, but it turns out he’s also pretty handy. He made a set of Guardians of the Galaxy action figures for James Gunn. The Ravagers set includes Yondu, Horuz’s first mate, the Goth Ravager, and Kraglin who was played by Gunn’s brother, Sean. The figures all come in a themed box just like what you’d find at the toy store and, if you collect 5 proofs of purchase, you can mail them in for a free Von Spears.

DC is releasing a line of Batman: The Animated Series figures and that set will now include Barbara Gordon. She will join Batman, Riddler, and Penguin as the latest wave of figures announced for the series. Batman and Riddler are 6″ figures while Bargirl is 5″ and Penguin comes in at 4.5″ because the guy just happens to be short. The figures are all set to make their debut next July but you can pre-order them now for $22.99 each.

sideshow indy main

I may have a few issues with Indiana Jones and the Temple Of Doom, but I’m already in love with the new Indiana Jones Temple of Doom Sixth Scale Figure by Sideshow Collectibles.

First of all, the face. That Indy determination-filled face is already captivating, but then you get all kinds of different accessories and different hands to use those accessories. Plus, the Sankara Stones… it’s all just..so cool.

I know, I’m fangirling. I honestly can’t help it.
