How bad to you just want to squish this sweet unicorn zebra hybrid right now?

There are four different adorable plush Zoonicorns named Valeo, Promithea, Aliel, and Ene and they are on a mission to “Enrich youth with life adventures.” The characters also appear in storybooks where the colorful friends visit zoo animals (in their dreams) to help them learn valuable life lessons.

The Zoonicorns made their debut this year at New York International Toy Fair. Since then the official website has launched and the magical toys can be purchased for $15 each. The first companion book, Buffy Meets the Zoonicorns, is available for $17.

I hope these cute plushies are a hit. I love when great toys are paired with great stories. And hopefully they won’t ever have to worry about sketchy encounters with Grundles.

Check out more pics of the cuteness after the break.

It is being released as a part of the new Play Arts Kai Variant line called “Batman Timeless”. The idea is to imagine Batman in different time periods giving us Spartan Batman, Medieval Knight Batman, and Steampunk Victorian Batman in addition to this cowboy version. No pricing or release date is available on this figure, but it’ll likely be in the $70 range.

Mondo, the art gallery and online store, recently unveiled a new Iron Giant Deluxe Figure and it is crazy accurate. Even The Iron Giant director Brad Bird approves. So many feels.

Mondo notes:

Mondo worked to obtain the digital files used in the film to create the most accurate and detailed Iron Giant figure to date. The figure features over 30 points of articulation and a variety of accessories allowing you to transform the Iron Giant into all of his notable incarnations. You’ll receive two interchangeable heads with light-up eyes, a magnetic “S” that can be detached from a Seafood sign and attached to his chest, switch-out “War Arm” when things get tense, a Hogarth mini-figure, and of course, a girder to munch on. Additionally, the figure includes a sound feature with favorite Iron Giant quotes from the film. The limited edition “Hand Under Foot” accessory (the Iron Giant’s detached hand that gets loose in the farmhouse) will be available exclusively through Mondo’s website. The figure will be sold for $300. A limited edition version of the figure with the “Hand Under Foot” accessory will be sold for $315

The Deluxe figure should ship during the third quarter of this year, so start preordering now!

sleeping totoro plush

Totoro manages to be cute no matter what he’s doing – even if it’s sleeping with an open mouth and snoring. A new Dozing Totoro plush captures the furry creature while he’s snoozing and sawing some logs. It’s adorable but also a little weird. And the noise of the snoring in the video was enough to scare my cat.

See the plush in action after the break.

Hot Toys released images of gorgeous Chewbacca and Han Solo figures as the first in its Star Wars line and now it’s going to the Imperial side with this Stormtrooper. The figure will be 30 cm tall and have 7 different hands to hold either a Blastech E-11 rifle or SE-14r Blast Pistol.

There’s also a two-pack with one Stormtrooper that’s shorter. Yes, he’s a little short for a Stormtrooper at 28 cm tall. The two-pack comes with a Mouse Droid and a DLT-19 Heavy Blaster Rifle.

The figure is available for pre-order now with an expected ship date of August 2015.

serenity 1

QMx got serious about making an insanely detailed and beautiful replica of Serenity, and they’ve delivered with a screen accurate model. We saw the debut of the giant Serenity at San Diego Comic-Con last summer, and now it’s available for pre-order.

They spared no expense in making this limited edition, artisan 1:124 scale model. Their Cinema Arts model shop made the 3D files and 3D printed the replica. It has over 250 parts, 100 LEDs, multiple layers and shades of paint, and more:

Incredible complexity. More than 250 parts — cast and laser cut.
Extra strength. Steel skeletal structure and internal brass structure for main engine rotation.
Interior bling. More than 100 LEDs controlled by a 12-volt system.
Multi-layered colors. A total of 25 different colors of high-quality studio paints.
No decals. All graphics on Serenity are painted on by hand, even Serenity’s logo.
Exquisite details. Miniature bridge with crew members, galley with furniture and cargo bay with cargo.
Movable parts. Manually operable cargo bay door and hinged reactor vent covers.
Wireless remote. Custom electronics created by QMx FX Cinema Arts with a four-channel remote control. Effects include:
Interior lighting for the bridge, galley and cargo bay, and illuminates docked shuttles.
Active formation lights
Rotating gravity rotor lights
Reactor housing illumination with a hard burn and twinkling firefly effect.
Cool display. Serenity’s lighted display base is a box stand with a Translight inset of a nebula. It features a 12-inch steel stand that adjusts at a variety of angles for optimal display.
Pro prop crate. Each Serenity is shipped in custom-cut foam and stored in a hand-built wooden apple crate, just like what the pros use to safeguard their props

The edition is capped at 500 pieces. Honestly, I’ve never seen a replica taken to this level before.

See all the beautiful details in photos after the break.

7-11 Evangelion Unit-01 statue 1

7-Elevens in Japan have so much more than unhealthy snacks and chilled beverages right now; they have ridiculously expensive Evangelion Unit-01 statues. It’s the perfect fit for wealthy Neon Genesis Evangelion fans that also enjoy Slurpees and questionable meat products.

There are only 25 units of the limited edition statue. It measures over 6 feet tall and comes in 7-Eleven colors. Since it’s priced at 1.8 million yen or $17,800 dollars, you can’t take it home directly from the store. Once you fill out a form, 7-Eleven will call you and arrange a bank transfer. You’ll get your colorful Unit-01 in a few months.

See a couple more photos of the statue after the break.
