James Gunn Guardians of the Galaxy

As the holiday season continues, one property that’s sure to be at the top of many lists is Guardians of the Galaxy. The Marvel Studios movie remains the highest grossing domestic film of the year, spawning a whole new legion of fans for the previously obscure characters. Some may get the Blu-ray, others a poster or action figure, but when you’re the director of the film, your level of gift gets significantly better.

In the last few days, co-writer and director James Gunn has gotten some absolutely amazing Guardians of the Galaxy gifts. A few are from Marvel, others from friends, but it’s proof that several years of non-stop, incredibly hard work does beget some really cool gifts. Check out James Gunn’s Guardians of the Galaxy gifts below. Read More »

Toys are a necessary part of blockbuster filmmaking, but they’re also the bane of its existence. On seemingly every single major Hollywood film, it’s the toys that reveal our first look at something major. For Jurassic World it was the D-Rex; for Transformers 4 it was Grimlock; the list goes on and on. It took longer than usual but the same thing has begun to happen for Star Wars: The Force Awakens. An image has appeared online that shows Finn, Rey, BB-8, Chewbacca and a mystery character that may or may not be Kylo Ren. However, an additional piece of concept art was released that almost certainly is Ren. Find out more about The Force Awakens toy leak below. Read More »

Guardians of the Galaxy Baby Dancing Groot

It feels like every single week there’s a new story about Baby Groot. Whether it be a new toy version of the character, a piece of art, or discussion of the scene itself, everyone just wants more information about the hilarious ending to Guardians of the Galaxy. If you’ve been on the fence about which version of the character to buy, you’re in luck. Hot Toys has revealed their version of Baby Groot and it’s pretty easy to say this is a close to definitive as we have. Unfortunately, it’s only 1:4 scale (which is so disappointing. Not 1:1?) but comes with interchangeable heads and bendable arms so you can set him in whatever dancing pose you like. Check out the Hot Toys Baby Groot toy below. Read More »

HT Avengers Age of Ultron Iron Man suit 8

In all the excitement over the past few weeks, be it Star Wars trailers, Jurassic World trailers, the holidays or major studio leaks, it’s almost hard to believe 2015 is nearly upon us. It should be an excellent year filled with blockbusters the likes of which we have never seen. As time moves on though we’re going to be seeing lots and lots more of those blockbusters and, now, you can finally analyze Tony Stark’s new armor in Avengers: Age of Ultron.

This Age of Ultron Iron Man suit comes courtesy of everyone’s favorite high end collectible company, Hot Toys. They’ve released a ton of images of the Avengers: Age of Ultron Iron Man Mark XLIII suit which even comes with an Ultron accessory.
