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.

Head after the break to see more pictures and details about the figure.

Those Nintendo Amiibo figures have been in the news a lot lately. This time, the story centers around a Samus action figure that recently sold for $2,500 on eBay due to the fact that it has two arm cannons instead of one, making it highly collectible. It is still in the original packaging, sealed up as it was the day it was purchased new for a heck of a lot less than the winning bidder just paid. Our guess is that it would have gone for a lot more had the media discovered it before the bidding ended.

Needless to say, keep your eyes open for defective toys when you’re out shopping this holiday.

Redditor neala963‘s son has a Star-Lord action figure, but is missing the other characters from Guardians of the Galaxy. He overcame this obstacle by improvising with a random plastic tree and raccoon from who knows which playset he had in his toy box. You’ve got to give the kid credit for his creativity.

Redditors took it a step further suggesting some great additional characters. Check those out after the break…

We’ve got some good news for you LEGO fans. The LEGO group recently announced details regarding a relaunch (and accompanying storyline) for LEGO Bionicle at New York City Comic Con. The new toys will be available globally on January 1, 2015. From the press release:

This is good for a Monday giggle. Check out Godzilla’s true identity as Batman! Who knew that was the guy stomping through Tokyo all these years? And you can also get a look at Godzilla’s softer side where he colors pictures and puts on a nice little song and dance show with a Power Ranger.

The action figures that were released for the new Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle films were okay, but they weren’t anywhere close to screen accurate. John Harmon of Mint Condition Customs repainted the four turtle action figures and added special touches and character details to make them stand out. The transformation is pretty incredible. As Harmon states:

They lacked a severe amount of detail that I felt I needed to fix to really bring the movie designs to life in action figure form. Each figure has been fully repainted, from head to toe. I’ve added spots, given them washes and highlights, and of course used only the best Testors Model Masters acrylics paints to do the job. I had to study several images and trailer stills in order to get down every detail. It took a long time, but the results speak for themselves.

The set of four figures sold on eBay for $810.

gamora main

While you may have noticed there’s not a ton of Gamora in the Guardian’s Of The Galaxy merchandise out there right now, the Hot Toys’ Facebook page previewed a new Gamora figure that will literally (okay, maybe not literally, but close) blow you away.

From the Hot Toys Facebook page:

“The movie-accurate Gamora collectible figure is specially crafted based on the image of Zoe Saldana as Gamora in the movie, featuring the newly developed head sculpt, highly detailed costume, weapons and accessories.”

That head sculpt includes black and purplish-red real fabric hair implantation and is specially hand-painted. The figure features 28 points of articulation and comes with interchangeable palms, to allow for different fighting styles.

She really is a thing of beauty and is available for pre-order now with an expected ship date of April 2015. Head after the break to see more pictures.
