Six foot, four inches. That’s the height of the Godzilla figure (including the base) that has been unveiled by Design Coco. The figure is based upon Godzilla’s appearance in the 1991 movie Godzilla vs. King Ghidorah, and stands at the height of the Godzilla costume used for the movie. So yeah—life-size. Technically.
It ain’t cheap though, and it won’t be plentiful – only ten of these bad boys will be available, with each selling for 4,482,000 yen (approximately $43,000 US at time of writing). Blimey.
Bandai will begin accepting applications to purchase one of these behemoths on November 7th via their Premium Bandai website, with the figure due to ship in July 2017. If you’ll be in Tokyo’s Akihabara neighborhood between October 28th-30th you can scope this ‘zilla out for yourself at the Tamashi Nation 2016 figure and model show, or you can get a look at a prototype version at the Shinjuku Marui Annex shopping center between November 1st-14th.

When I think of Chucky from Child’s Play, I think of that maniacal little redheaded Good Guy doll voiced by Brad Dourif. Not pretty anime girls.
But this Bishoujo-style statue interpreted by master illustrator Shunya Yamashita is scarier now that I think about it. Cute girl one minute, deranged killer the next. Plus, female killers are just better when it comes to Child’s Play. I mean, look at Tiffany.
Child’s Play Chucky Bishoujo Statue: $74.99

The Funko Pop X-Men line will be getting classic versions of Cable, Archangel, Quicksilver, Psylocke, Sabretooth, and Storm in the coming months. The Sabretooth is too darn cute and I’m definitely loving the Psylocke and Storm.
Funko also revealed new X-Men Dorbz, Mystery Minis, and even a Magneto pop keychain, so there’s a lot of new X-Men Funko goodness out there. Check out more pics of the Pops below. [click to continue…]
The Nintendo Switch has everyone excited, with the possible exception of grandparents and the perpetually unimpressed. But less than 48 hours after its announcement it had already inspired fanart based on the undeniable fact that the controller looks like a cute dog. Twitter user @TheAnnaTheRed went a step further by bringing it to life as a plush toy. It’s adorable, and we love it. This really needs to be an official thing.
Check out more photos of @TheAnnaTheRed’s plush Switch dog, as well as the tweets that inspired its creation below. [click to continue…]
The first wave of Assassin’s Creed movie Pops include Callum Lynch, Aguilar, Maria, and Ojeda. Two versions of Michael Fassbender is always a plus in my book. Take a closer look at the figures below. [click to continue…]
Welp, this Pikachu Mario and Luigi plush combo really, really works. So of course they’re a limited edition item going on sale October 29th at Pokémon Centers in Japan.
But that’s not all of the awesome merch you won’t be able to get your hands on (without paying far, far to much for them on eBay). Torture yourself with more official Pokémon Company / Nintendo crossover items below. [click to continue…]
Pyke, the Greyjoy castle on the Iron Islands of Westeros, is definitely on the dreary side, but LEGO artist Anu Pehrson‘s take on Pyke is remarkably beautiful. The creation even won an award at BrickCon earlier this month.
Needless to say, if I had to choose between visiting GRRM’s or Anu’s version of Pyke, I definitely go with the latter. Check out an additional pic below. [click to continue…]
The Barbarian and the She-Devil with a Sword are battling it out to see who’ll be the cutest warrior on the shelf—and they’re out for blood.

The first time I saw that mouse droid in Star Wars, I wanted it. Needed it. I’m sure I’m not alone.
That’s why I was happy to hear that sometime around mid-December, a remote-controlled Mouse Droid will be rolling into select locations at both Disneyland (If I had to guess, Star Trader) and Walt Disney World Resort. Hopefully, it will also be offered on the Shop Disney Parks app at some point.
I don’t know if it makes the high pitched squeal or how much it’ll cost, but I need it. Check out the Mouse Droid scene in A New Hope below. [click to continue…]
