Aside from a few stills here and there, Sony still hasn’t revealed a whole lot about its upcoming Ghostbusters reboot. We know it’ll be directed by Paul Feig and star Kristen Wiig, Melissa McCarthy, Leslie Jones and Kristen Wiig as the new fab four, but we won’t actually get our first good look at the new ‘busters in action until next month, when the first trailer finally drops.
As happens so often, though, Sony’s commitment to secrecy has been undermined by its desire to sell some toys. Confirmed details on the villain, played by Neil Casey, remain under lock and key, but it seems we’ve gotten an early sneak peek at the character thanks to Toy Fair. Take a look after the jump.

There are a slew of incredible LEGO Star Wars sets out there, but for some reason The Empire Strikes Back hasn’t really properly been given its due diligence in building brick form. Specifically, with the exception of a Snowspeeder and AT-AT, the playsets recreating scenes from the opening battle on Hoth have been lackluster at best. But that changes this spring with a new Echo Base LEGO set that is nearly everything you ever wanted from a LEGO Hoth playset. See more photos below. Read More »
There have been hundreds of Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles action figures released over the years But I don’t think I’ve seen any figures that are as beautiful as this new line from Bandai, especially for fans of the animated series from the late ’80s/early ’90s.
Part of their Figuarts line of figures, these four Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles are bright, vibrant and just plain perfect. However, TMNT fans might be a little frustrated because getting your hands on them might prove to be difficult if you live outside of Japan. Check out the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles action figures after the jump. Read More »
The Ghostbusters reboot/remake, or whatever you want to call it, is coming this summer. We already know there’s plenty of merchandising coming for the new movie because director Paul Feig already showed off some Ghostbusters action figures of Kristen Wiig, Melissa McCarthy, Leslie Jones and Kate McKinnon. But I don’t think anyone was expecting this yet.
Ghostbusters fans were rather pleased to get a LEGO set commemorating the titular paranormal exterminators and their iconic car, the revamped classic ambulance known as the Ecto-1. The vehicle got a pretty sweet companion set in the form of the Ghostbsuters’ firehouse this year, and now they’ll both have some company in the form of Paul Feig’s Ghostbusters.
The first photos of the set featuring the team’s new vehicle and some awesome minifigures have been revealed and you can see them below. But beware, because one piece of the set gives away a bit of a spoiler. Read More »

We’ve already done plenty of looking back at the year in film that was 2015. We’ve featured a variety of retrospective trailer mash-ups. Plus, Angie Han, Jacob Hall, Jack Giroux and myself all counted down our favorite movies of the year. And now we’re looking forward to what’s coming in 2016. But it couldn’t hurt to take one more look back at last year, especially if it’s with a video that takes the biggest blockbusters of 2015 and recreates them all in LEGO form. Read More »

At a couple points in your life, you’ve probably said Beetlejuice to yourself three times, just to see what would happen. Sadly, it just doesn’t work the way it does in Tim Burton‘s classic 1988 horror comedy. But now if you say Beetlejuice three times and you have some extra cash lying around, you can finally summon Beetlejuice into your house.

Lately, LEGO has been putting together some pretty awesome sets that are just as cool for adult collectors as for kids. In fact, some of them are probably geared towards those older master builders, such as the massive Ghostbusters firehouse and the recently revealed 1966 Batman series Batcave. But when it comes to Star Wars, most of their sets are still geared towards kids, and some builders just want their LEGO Star Wars vehicles bigger and better.
That’s where master builder Peter Brookdale comes into play with his custom LEGO AT-AT from The Empire Strikes Back that was created with over 6,000 pieces, making it six times bigger than the official LEGO set. Check it out below! Read More »
