Filmmakers, stars, and studio marketing teams will bend over backward to keep a film’s secrets, but the tie-in toy line will give them away every time. Okay, so “every time” is an exaggeration. But as we’ve seen recently with everything from Power Rangers to Beauty and the Beast, toys can be a rich source of information about highly anticipated and closely guarded upcoming releases.
Like Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2. While we’ve known for a while that Elizabeth Debicki‘s Ayesha would be the villain, the first trailer didn’t show her at all. So our first look at the character comes today in the form of a Funko Pint Size Heroes toy. Check it out below. Read More »

Over the last decade of /Film, we’ve tried to feature the latest geek collectibles, prints, books and toys alongside our regular coverage of movie and television news. Sometimes it has taken the form of a standalone “Cool Stuff” post, other times it was in a round up like Superhero Bits or the now defunct Page 2 and Toy Box. As it turns out, it’s very hard to commit to a daily or weekly round-up of this kind of things, especially when we don’t know when products worth writing about will be announced or released.
So the solution I came up with was to produce “Cool Stuff” round-ups on an organic semi-regular basis, determined solely by when enough cool products present themselves. After the jump, enjoy the first installment of the Cool Stuff round-up which includes Guardians of the Galaxy, Star Wars, John Williams, Pulp Fiction, Pixar, Jurassic Park, Rogue One and more. Think of it as a Christmas buying guide for geeks, but published all year round.
And if you don’t like this, please know this is all Adam Goldberg’s fault (apologies in advance to Adam’s wife for any purchases that are made because of this).

It’s the Christmas season, which means you either love or hate the presence of the holiday comedy Jingle All the Way playing all over TV. The crass, commercial comedy starring Arnold Schwarzenegger and Sinbad desperately trying to get their hands on the popular fictional toy known as Turbo Man is goofy, slapsticky and just plain bad. But I still watch it every year and enjoy the hell out of it. I always laugh every time Schwarzenegger says, “Who told you you could eat my cookies?”
If you’re a fan of the movie and you’ve always wanted your own Turbo Man just for the hell of it, a new Kickstarter wants to make that possible. It’s a little pricey if you really want it to be Turbo Time at your house, but it just might be worth it. Find out details after the jump. Read More »
Hasbro has announced Clue: Star Wars Edition, which isn’t just a boring retheme of the classic deduction board game, but a thematic retheme complete with a 3D Death Star board. You play as Luke, Leia, Han, Chewbacca, R2-D2, or C-3PO, aboard the Death Star trying to save the Galaxy from destruction by the Empire. If you’re the first person to figure out Darth Vader’s next target, find and seize the Death Star plans, and steal the right escape vehicle, you save the galaxy and win the game.

The breakout fan favorite character from Star Wars: The Force Awakens last year was undoubtedly BB-8. The little ball droid was one of the hottest Christmas gifts, and he’s one of the cutest robots the Star Wars galaxy has ever seen. Over the past year, you’ve undoubtedly seen endless versions of BB-8 on toy shelves, ranging from the extremely tiny to the near life-size iteration. However, most of them don’t quite look like how he droid looks in the movie. But a new tutorial shows how you can fix that.
Find out how to easily create a BB-8 action figure screen accurate after the jump. Read More »

We’re about a couple weeks away from seeing how the wizarding world expands in Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them, the first spin-off in a new series of films that takes place before the events of the Harry Potter franchise. There’s a lot riding on this franchise starter, but Warner Bros. Pictures seems supremely confident in it with four sequels already planned, including one that will bring Johnny Depp into the fray in a pivotal role.
To keep the hype machine chugging along, the magic wands of the new key characters from Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them have been revealed. In addition, a batch of new TV spots show off a little bit of new footage from the spin-off. Read More »
The LEGO Death Star is one of the biggest playsets offered by the Danish building block company. The Star Wars set was actually discontinued last year, only to be re-released this year with some slight modifications that added 200 pieces and three minifigures that weren’t in the original set.
With 4,016 pieces, it’s a massive undertaking to build this set, let along paying $499.99 to actually purchase it from LEGO. But what if you could come close to the satisfaction of putting it together by watching a smooth time lapse video showing how it all comes together? Thankfully, one LEGO Star Wars fan and master builder has done just that, and you can watch it below. Read More »
