Later this month, 20th Century Fox is trying to make Alien Day a thing on April 26th. The makeshift holiday is inspired by LV 426, the place where the Nostromo first encounters the xenomorph eggs that will be the end of them in the classic sci-fi flick Alien. As we previously reported, the day will be bringing a bunch of exclusive collectibles, artwork, clothing and other merchandise, in addition to double feature screenings of Alien and Aliens.
In advance of the holiday, the toy company Super 7 has just offered up a sneak peek at a few of the items they’ll be releasing on Alien Day. See what Alien Day ReAction figures Super 7 has in store below. Read More »
Earlier this year, an official LEGO set was revealed for the 1966 Batman secret lair known as the Batcave. It comes with Adam West and Burt Ward as Batman and Robin, as well as their signature Batmobile, Batcycle and Batcopter. It’s on sale now and you can see photos of it right here. But one fan decided he wanted his own modern LEGO Batcave, and he really went all out for it.
Master builder Dan Glasure created an 18,000-piece LEGO Batcave that is extremely intricate and detailed, including vehicles like the Batmobile and Batjet from Tim Burton’s feature films. But even more impressive is the fact that it exists under an equally intricate LEGO Wayne Manor. See some photos of the custom creation below. Read More »
In addition to the LEGO minifgures that come with the various building block playsets, the toy company has also been selling individual minifigures. However, rather than being able to choose which minifigures you want to buy, you have to take your chances by buying them blind and hope you get one you don’t have yet. Or you can be the person who stands in the aisle and tries to feel the little plastic packages to determine if you’re getting the figure you want.
Anyway, if you’re a Disney fan, you’re probably going to be interested in the latest series of minifigures that will give some of Disney’s most famous animated characters the building block treatment. There’s a series of 18 new LEGO Disney minifigures featuring characters from The Incredibles, The Little Mermaid, Peter Pan and more. Read More »
We’re champions of plenty of projects that pop up over at the LEGO Ideas website. For those who don’t know, it’s a community of LEGO builders who create custom sets that they hope will be supported by community and eventually make it in front of the official LEGO board for approval to become a legitimate set sold in stores. A set needs 10,000 votes to make it in front of the board, but that’s no guarantee of production since the company still has to determine whether they can get the rights to make the set and if there’s even a viable market for it to be sold in.
Thankfully, it has been determined that an Adventure Time LEGO set is a good idea, and it will be put into production. That’s pretty mathematical. Check out the set below! Read More »
Even though hope for Pacific Rim 2 was thought to be lost, back in January we learned that the film isn’t exactly dead yet, and Guillermo del Toro may still yet get around to the next phase of the fight between humanity and the massive inter-dimensional monsters known as kaiju. And while waiting for the sequel, one fan decided to spend his time building a Jaeger of his own, in LEGO form. No, it’s not big enough to take down any kaiju, but it’s impressive nonetheless.

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.

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 »
Down in Melbourne, Australia last week, they had quite the celebration of LEGO with the Brickvention 2016 convention. The two-day event featured a huge collection of LEGO models including trains, castles, pirate ships, space ships, planes, buildings, sculptures and many more. And one of the models on display was this fantastic custom LEGO Arkham Asylum which took three months and 18,000 LEGO pieces to build. It’s a truly fantastic piece of work. Read More »
