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.

This Cherno Alpa Jaeger action figure from Pacific Rim is loaded with details, including LED lights. He measures 18″ tall and has realistic weathering and 20 points of articulation so he can strike all manner of threatening poses. He’s even got sliding fists. Cherno is just the thing to stand guard over your desk while you go to refill your coffee.

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.
