‘Inception’-Inspired Board Game Is a Dream Come True

Inception board game

If you walked out of Inception wishing you could spend a little more time in Christopher Nolan‘s lush sci-fi world, a new (unofficial) Inception board game could be just the thing to make your dreams come true.

Created by Bruno Gervasi and Reid Cuddy, Inceptor unfolds pretty much like the inceptions from the movie — only players roll dice and collect cards to manipulate the Mark, instead of injecting mind-bending chemicals and plugging in futuristic technology. Learn more about it after the jump.

Back to the Future ReAction

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 »

Guardians of the Galaxy header size

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 »

Guardians of the Galaxy

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 »
