voltron-maquette-400281-01

Standing 27-inches tall, this Voltron maquette from Sideshow Collectibles is made up of 106 individual polyresin, metal, and premium grade PVC pieces, with eyes that light up and a 14.5″ wing diameter. It also has a whopping $1,250.00 price tag, which is a helluva lot to pay for a Voltron figure that doesn’t break down into individual bots.

Plus, there’s a transforming Toy Story Voltron coming soon for less than $200. How can you compete with that?

Sometimes you see a toy and you think, “Huh. I’m not sure that needs to exist.” This is not one of those toys.

Call it Voltron, call it a Megazord, call it whatever you like – this Toy Story “Chogokin combiner” from Tamashii Nations takes several of the classic toys from Andy’s toy chest and turns them into robots which combine to form one 9″-tall mega-awesome cowboy-themed robot-y thing. What do the individual toys turn into? I’m very glad you asked – nothing. But their combined form looks incredibly cool.

The set drops in Japan this November, priced at $169.99. The set will eventually make its way to the US, though that’ll likely come with a higher price tag. Tamashii Nations have also hinted at a second model based on Buzz Lightyear possibly coming at some point in the future.

dc-super-hero-girls-katana-sdcc-exclusive

Meet the new DC Super Hero Girls Katana SDCC exclusive figure. Accessories include sai, shuriken, a sheathed tanto and a naginata and a gorgeous display box. She’ll also have interchangeable hands to manage all those weapons.

So awesome.

The figure will be $40 at the show. You can start ordering June 17th on MattyCollector, but you’ll need to pick up at the con. I may need you to pick one up for me.

LEGO enthusiast LegoSpencer has faithfully recreated the TIE Fighter hangar from Star Wars: The Force Awakens. You know, from that scene where Poe and Finn totally steal a shiny black TIE Fighter shortly before nosediving into Jakku?

It took about six weeks to make, and contains a number of lovely little details that I damn near swooned over. You can get a closer look in the breakdown video below. [click to continue…]

build a bear ghostbusters

As part of Sony’s Ghostbusters Day celebration yesterday (the first film was released on June 8, 1984) Build-A-Bear Workshop unveiled a new Ghostbusters line that will feature Slimer, the Stay Puft Marshmallow Man, and a Ghostbusters Bear.

All three options are available for pre-order online through June 12 with an official launch in the U.K., Canada, and the U.S. slated for June 23. While Slimer and the Ghostbusters bear will be available in stores and online, Stay Puft is a web exclusive.

The 7-inch Slimer toy ($12.50) is pretty darn cute, and the 19-inch, Marshmallow Man can be customized with a number of accessories, including a sound chip for $7 (which plays the theme song) and a “marshmallow scent” for $3.50. Options for the 17-inch Ghostbusters bear break down like this:

  • Ghostbusters Bear: $25.00
  • Tan Jumpsuit: $13.50
  • Proton Pack: $10.50
  • Ghostbusters Theme Song sound chip: $7.00
  • Ghostbusters furry friend tee: $7.00
  • Marshmallow scent: $3.50

funko power rangers

Funko finally got around to unveiling the rest of the Power Rangers Pop set after the Red, Pink and White figures debuted back in 2012.

Those figures have since been retired and command high prices for collectors, so it won’t be cheap to complete the set if you’re starting now. That is, unless Funko decides to re-release the original three. However, that seems unlikely as Funko claims on their blog that the Green, Black, Yellow and Blue Rangers will “complete your collection” starting this August.

Fans of British sci-fi should get a kick out of this one – or should we say “brick”? (No. – Ed.) A LEGO fan by the name of Legobob32 (clever name, we know) has submitted a design for a set to the LEGO Ideas site themed entirely around cult classic British sci-fi comedy series Red Dwarf.

The set is modeled on the bunk room shared in the show by main characters Dave Lister and Arnold Rimmer, specifically the bunk as it appears in Red Dwarf X. It features cues from previous seasons, minifigs of the four principal characters, and two of the character’s parallel-universe alter egos – Duane Dibley and Ace Rimmer. Oh, and there’s also a build of Blue Midget, one of the ship-to-surface vessels that appears infrequently during the show. [click to continue…]

NECA-Deadpool-Quarter-Scale-001

Because Deadpool would likely tell you that you should own him in as many sizes as possible, here’s NECA’s 1/4 scale Deadpool action figure to tempt you.

Standing 18-inches, this Deadpool figure has over 30 points of articulation and weapons including katanas, sai, machine guns, a pistol and a knife, all of which have working holsters and sheaths.

Why they didn’t include a chimichanga accessory is beyond me. A golden opportunity wasted. [click to continue…]

Shelf Space… the final frontier for any toy collector, and you’re going to need just a little more to display these awesome Barbie dolls, announced to celebrate the 50th anniversary of Star Trek.

They drop in July, though Amazon is currently taking preorders for these newly-announced dolls of Kirk, Spock and Uhura (Uhura is currently listed as unavailable) for $34.99.

Of course, this isn’t the first time Barbie has shown her Trekkie side. A set of dolls released to tie in with the 2009 movie were released in… well, in 2009, and before that this set of Barbie and Ken dressed in Original Series era uniforms was released in 1996 for the franchise’s 30th anniversary. By our reckoning, though, this new 50th anniversary set is the best-looking of the bunch. [click to continue…]
