If you’ve seen the really cool Star Wars figures that Square Enix has released, then you know they’re a thing of beauty. They’ve also inspired artist Iain Reed to create character portraits based on previously released images of the Darth Vader, Boba Fett, and Stormtrooper figures.

I’ll admit, this is the first time I’ve seen an artist do fan art of an action figure, but I hope it’s not the last.

Take a closer look after the break.

If you’re stoked on Metal Gear Solid V, then you’ll probably dig this new Venom Snake figure from Union Creative. It features 27 points of articulation and comes with a whole mess of cool accessories including a knife, a phantom cigar (always a must!), a sniper rifle, a papercraft box (for sneaking) and six optional hands. The $65 price tag is a bit steep ($95 will get you the figure before January apparently), but hey—six hands!

S.H. Figuarts Ultron Exclusive

The SH Figuarts line is about to get one serious bad guy with this Ultron Figure. At 6.9 inches tall, Ultron features the same detail and accuracy we’ve come to expect from the Figuarts series. He also looks like he can kick some serious ass but maintains the sleek, fluid look that defines Ultron.

We’re huge fans of the Star Wars Movie Realization Figure Series, but if you have the skills you can do what artist @yononaka_poison did and customize your own figures. The details on this custom inked trooper are just amazing, and it’s very cool to scroll through the artists’ timeline and watch the work in progress.

Check it out after the break.

I don’t know if I missed this during the Force Friday insanity or if this Amazon exclusive Star Wars: The Force Awakens 3.75-Inch Figure Troop Builder 6-Pack just popped up recently, but the second I saw it, I did a happy dance.

The seven figure set includes Captain Phasma, First Order Stormtrooper, First Order Flametrooper, First Order Snowtrooper, First Order TIE Fighter Pilot, First Order Riot Control Stormtrooper, and First Order Heavy Artillery Stormtrooper plus 14 accessories to arm them all. The packaging is also very cool.

Someone somewhere is going to buy a bunch of these and stage a battle. I just hope they share pictures.

In this Death Star Perplexus Maze, you must navigate the X-Wing (a.k.a. tiny metal ball) through treacherous tunnels and precarious pathways until reaching the escape hatch through the glowing red core.

The clear sphere allows you to see every angle in this 3D puzzle game, although you might need some serious Jedi force skills to complete the mission. The toy lights up and has sound effects as you play, no batteries required.

Cat Jenga Is The Best Jenga

cat jenga

We’ve seen cats play Jenga before, but now you can play Jenga with cats!

Actually, you should think of it like Jenga in reverse. The objective of Cat Jenga/Comma Cat is to build the tallest tower of cats the world has ever seen.

Unfortunately, with only six cats to a set, building an epic cat tower will be a bit pricey. On that note, don’t try this with real cats – it won’t end well.

The Sphero BB-8 may have been the hot toy on Force Friday, but two other awesome toys made an appearance in our giant roundup that we felt needed some extra attention.

First up, the Star Wars: The Force Awakens Classic U-Command AT-AT. Standing 10.5″ tall and controlled by a dual-joystick programmable infrared remote, you can pre-program or instantly send over 1000 action combinations with 10 buttons to make this AT-AT walk in all directions and turn its head while lights and sounds replicate its firing actions.

Then there’s the new Star Wars: Episode VII – The Black Series Deluxe First Order TIE Fighter Vehicle. The 6″ pilot figure that comes with this vehicle will help give you some idea of the scale. The cockpit has seating for 2 figures and each wing is nearly 2 feet tall. I saw this up close at SDCC and it’s seriously beautiful.

Get a better look at each of them after the break.

I honestly have no idea how I’m going to survive Force Friday, not to mention all of the other product releases that we’re sure to see between now and December 18th when Star Wars: The Force Awakens opens. There are so many things and I want them so badly!

This time, it’s Tamashii Nations and their new SH Figuarts Captain Phasma, Kylo Ren and First Order Stormtrooper. Kylo has his signature crosssaber and the Stormtrooper comes with a blaster rifle. From what I can tell, Phasma’s got her primary weapon as well.

Kylo Ren and the First Order Stormtrooper are estimated to arrive in December, but there’s no word on Phasma yet.

Hot Toys and Sideshow Collectibles have unveiled 1/6th scale Star Wars: The Force Awakens figures and they’re gorgeous. The releases include a 1/6th scale Kylo Ren, a Stormtrooper set that includes a 1/6th scale First Order Stormtrooper and First Order Heavy Gunner Stormtrooper, and the Hot Toys Exclusive 1/6th Scale Stormtrooper Squad Leader.

Each figure is made to Hot Toys high standards and comes with a specially designed hexagonal figure stand with the First Order’s emblem.

Kylo Ren is dressed in his tailored outfit with a weathered helmet and his signature lightsaber with LED’s. Seeing that thing lit up has got to be a thing of beauty.

The new First Order Stormtroopers set includes a standard soldier and a heavy gunner. The First Order Stormtrooper is equipped with a blaster rifle and blaster pistol while the Heavy Gunner sports an articulated megablaster, a blaster pistol, and artillery vest.

The Hot Toys exclusive Squad Leader features new armor with a white pauldron indicating advanced rank and a blaster.

Basically, I want alllllllll of it.
