After a hugely successful Wave 1 release, Hasbro’s X-Men Marvel Legends 6-Inch Action Figures are back with a new series that features Cyclops, Dazzler, Sunfire, Polaris, Colossus, Shatterstar, (2x) Old Man Logan, and Warlock build-a-figure pieces. Check out the completed Warlock below. [click to continue…]

Blizzard has formalized their in-house collectibles line with the launch of a stunning Overwatch Widowmaker statue. It joins the equally amazing Reaper and Tracer statues launched last year. Let’s take a closer look at this beauty shall we? [click to continue…]

I can’t say that I’ve ever seen an official collectible collection quite like this Alien/Zippo combination. It’s available in a limited edition of 8,000 complete units and is sold in an eight shipment subscription series. That is to say, you’ll get one lighter at a time for $39.99 (arrives “every month or two”), with the illuminated display arriving on the third shipment. When all is said and done, you’ll be in for a total of $320 ($392 with shipping) to collect the entire series. [click to continue…]

If you have a spare $35K lying around, you can be the proud owner of this 1/7th scale or 9-foot tall Rogue One: A Star Wars Story AT-ACT made by Beast Kingdom.

Now, I personally would have to go with this playhouse AT-ACT, but this version is a little more sensible. That’s right, we’ve managed to work the word “sensible” in a post about a $35K toy. Makes this $300 version look downright cheap eh?

Johnny Wu @sgtbananas (bonus photo 5)

Earlier this year, Hasbro launched their Star Wars #HasbroToyPic campaign in which Hasbro and well-known toy photographer Johnny Wu aka @sgtbananas called on fans to show off their photography skills, creativity, and collections by recreating scenes from Star Wars: The Force Awakens using vehicles and figures in the Hasbro Star Wars line.

There really were some amazing entries and I’m currently following a number of people on Instagram because of this whole thing.

Hasbro sorted through all the submissions and they’ve culled the finalists to the top 24. Their photos will be displayed at the Hasbro booth at San-Diego Comic-Con, but you can check them all out below. [click to continue…]

“The economics of the future are somewhat different. You see, money doesn’t exist in the 24th century. The acquisition of wealth is no longer the driving force of our lives. We work to better ourselves and the rest of humanity.”

Meanwhile, back here in the pre-warp era, money still has very real value. To that end, the Canadian Mint has put out a range of snazzy Star Trek coins to celebrate the 50th anniversary of the franchise. As well as a selection of $20 coins featuring full-color images of certain characters and moments from the original series, they’ve put out a coin in the shape of the Starfleet insignia (with Queen Elizabeth II’s head on the back, obviously, making her a de facto Starfleet captain, probably).

The coin itself is 99.9% pure gold and has a face value of $200 Canadian, but it’ll cost you $1,300 (approximately $1,022 US dollars).

All of these coins are legal tender—but who’d want to pay for their gas with a pocketful of Shatners? Wait. That sounds awesome actually.

Check out more pictures of the coin collection below. [click to continue…]

While Harley Quinn is awesome in any incarnation, her character in Batman: Arkham Knight is definitely one that fans have fallen in love with. Bat wielding, leather wearing, unpredictable and deadly Harley with the knowing wink and crazy smile gets captured perfectly by in this Harley Quinn Polystone Statue by Prime 1 Studio.

Standing 29-inches tall, the statue features three different portraits and three different arms to give you a variety of expressions and potential weapons. The base is detailed with loads of Harley madness and there’s paint bucket and Jack in the box accessories that can be placed for additional decoration. In addition, this exclusive version includes a Batman and Joker polystone plush to adorn the lovely lady.

She may be pricey, but I’m sure Harley herself would tell you she’s completely worth it at twice the price.

Mezco’s 6.5” tall Dark Knight Returns Batman figure is getting an upgrade for this year’s SDCC. They’re recreating the fight scene between Batman and the Mutant Leader with a new boxed set. The Mutant Leader gets several hands and fists to hold a crowbar and an accessory of Batman’s Knock Out foam that slips over his face.

Batman comes battled damaged with bloodied gauntlets, a tattered batsuit and a beaten up face. There’s also a junkard base for you to pose the characters and set the scene. The boxed set will be available at SDCC with online preorders starting today in limited quantities.

See more pictures after the break.
