Ah, Amiibo. They’ll stand the test of time long after people have forgotten what the Wii U was (“Some kind of… singing toaster?” – you, in ten years). Especially with people like GandaKris going to the trouble of making custom Amiibo. One of her recent projects has been recreating characters from Blizzard’s not-a-MOBA, Overwatch, and we think they look pretty ruddy spiffy. Check out a gallery of Gandakris’ handiwork below.

This may be my new meditation method. Watch the video below. [click to continue…]

Bandai Japan seems to be aware that they have a passionate adult audience because the Sailor Moon Kaleidomoon Scope from Pretty Guardian Sailor Moon SuperS is definitely something older fans will love.
This prop replica or “proplica” has wings that open and close, lights and sound, multicolor LEDs, and plays six lines from the show spoken by Usagi’s Japanese voice actress Kotone Mitsuishi.
I’m betting we’re going to see more than one cosplayer using it. Heck, I want one for around the house! Check out more pics below. [click to continue…]
Since its launch a year ago the DC Super Hero Girls brand – which consists of a YouTube series, a film, books, toys and all manner of other merch – has been hugely successful. Like most successful nerdy things, it’s about to get the LEGO treatment.
Come November 27th, American LEGO fans will be able to pick up these LEGO Friends sets featuring everyone’s favorite female heroes and villains including Supergirl, Harley Quinn, Poison Ivy and Batgirl (and not Bartgirl as I almost typed). A Super Hero High School playset is also planned, and additional sets that feature Wonder Woman, Bumblebee and Lashina drop in January when the range becomes available internationally.
Each set also comes with its own vehicles and accessories. Check out photos of the sets, along with US retail prices below. Huzzah! [click to continue…]

If there’s one thing I can say about the new Figure Complex Amazing Yamaguchi Revoltech Spider-Man, it’s got poseability up the wazoo. I mean, look at this thing. The figure is roughly 6-inches tall, comes with interchangeable eyes and hands, and a variety of webbing types. It even has a mount that lets you post him on a vertical surface for climbing action.
The figure is scheduled for a January 2017 release with a price point of 6,372¥ (approx $62 USD), but no word yet on when pre-orders will begin. See what else this thing can do in the pictures below. [click to continue…]

Check out more photos and details below. [click to continue…]
