These days action figures look too good. They’re all 3D scanned with multiple points of articulation, tons of accessories and beautiful packaging. That wasn’t always the case. In the Eighties, you got a basic likeness that barely looked like the character, four points of articulation and a simple card with plastic bubble. That was it. Kenner style.
ReAction Figures is bringing that back. They’ll soon release classic Eighties carded figures from properties that never got that treatment. Movies and shows like Back to the Future, The Goonies, Pulp Fiction, Firefly, The Terminator, Friday the 13th, Predator, The Rocketeer, Escape from New York and many more. They’re available for pre-order now on Entertainment Earth and you can check out some images below. Read More »

Even before their hit movies, if you said the names “Iron Man,” “Thor” or “Captain America” to your mom, she probably knew what they looked like. They’re just recognizable, iconic characters with roots firmly planted in popular culture. Now try the same thing with the Guardians of the Galaxy. Spoiler alert: it won’t work.
Though comic book fans are very familiar with the ragtag superhero team, most people have no idea who they are, which is the biggest issue facing Marvel with the August release. How can they make the public aware these are Marvel Cinematic Universe characters on par with those other iconic superheroes?
One way is to first reveal their toys. Toys are a perfect way to show parents, “These are things we want your kids to care about.” So on Thursday, we saw the Hasbro figures and now the first Lego set has been revealed. It features our first look at the Guardians’ ship, the Milano, and a scene from the film called “The Milano Spaceship Rescue.” Check out the images below. Read More »
Outside of Comic-Con and D23 Expo, no one has seen footage from James Gunn‘s Guardians of the Galaxy. And that footage was completed mere days into shooting. Now, the director has been done for a while, is deep into post-production, and a trailer is most definitely coming soon. (Next Tuesday, February 18, is the rumored drop date.)
But official images of the upcoming Marvel Legends toys featuring characters from the film have hit the net. They are very detailed and finished, and should tide us through the weekend until next week’s trailer and poster debut. Check them out below. Read More »
This Lego Cuusoo thing really works. Back to the Future and Ghostbusters are just two of the major properties builders created and uploaded to the site, only to be endorsed by fans, put in front of the Lego review board, approved and made available to the public. Now there’s another super cool set we want to alert people to, hoping it might get pushed through.
It’s a detaile, beautiful build of Professor X’s mansion from the world of X-Men. A slick building on the one side, you flip it around to reveal various rooms devoted to all kinds of mutants like Cyclops, Beast and others. See more images below. Read More »
Lego is going to make the Ecto-1 from Ghostbusters for the film’s 30th anniversary.
The project was part of the Lego Cuusoo program last year, and we urged you to vote for it on this site. Well, it worked. The set got the 10,000 votes it needed, and Lego just approved the project over some other impressive sets. The Ecto-1 will be in stores later this year. Watch the announcement video below and look at some of the original images. Read More »
Cool Posts From Around the Web:
Well before Disney bought Lucasfilm in 2012, the two companies had a great relationship. Disney Parks were full of Lucasfilm properties, including Star Wars and Indiana Jones, and that’s only become more prominent under the recent deal. The latest Disney/Lucasfilm collaboration is a brand new set of Indiana Jones Vinylmations.
Vinylmations are an exclusive Disney collectible featuring various characters on 3 inch bodies shaped like Mickey Mouse. They started with Disney characters, but have since gone all over the map, to The Avengers, Star Wars, artistic designs and more. The Indy ones were released Friday at the Disney Store and park locations. They are just beyond cool. Check them out below. Read More »
