We’ve seen many photos of Ultron, the main villain in Joss Whedon‘s Avengers: Age of Ultron. We’ve seen him in trailers, we’ve heard him reference Pinocchio, and we’ve seen glimpses of his origin. But until the movie is released, the best way to truly see a character like this is Hot Toys.
The high-end, Hong Kong-based toy company makes the most realistic and detailed collectibles in the world, and they just revealed photos of their Ultron Prime 1/6 scale collectible. You can see a bunch of the Hot Toys Ultron photos below, which give you some great looks at the character that’ll rain hell down on the Avengers come May 1. Read More »

Two big new pieces of Jurassic World info have been revealed Tuesday. First up, a new viral video reveals the character played by Vincent D’Onofrio. His name is Vic Hoskins and he’s the head of InGen’s Private Security division. They’re a security force, funded by the same company as the Jurassic World park, to develop new methods of defense both for international incidents, and for anything bad that may or may not happen at the park.
Also, a new toy image has been revealed that strongly suggests that there’s more than one hybrid dinosaur in the park. (Just remember that you can’t always trust toys.) See the viral video and find out about this new Jurassic World hybrid dinosaur below. Read More »

Last night, I flew the Millennium Falcon. And an X-Wing. And a Snowspeeder. And a Speeder Bike. And even Darth Vader’s TIE Fighter. You can play as all of those ships too in the brand new arcade game, Star Wars Battle Pod, which is currently in Arcades nationwide.
Battle Pod is basically just that. It’s a sit down flying/shooting game with a screen that covers your entire plane of vision, over 180 degrees, making it feel like you are inside your favorite Star Wars ship. There are then five different missions you can play. Fly an X-Wing at the battle of Yavin and try to destroy the Death Star. Fly a Snowspeeder on Hoth, protecting the Rebel transports. Man a Speeder Bike on Endor to destroy the shield generator. Take the Millennium Falcon into the second Death Star. Or, in the game’s most challenging and exciting battle, play as Darth Vader against the Rebels immediately after the destruction of the first Death Star.
Below, read our Star Wars Battle Pod review and see some official videos and photos. Read More »

Wednesday, Lego announced the two latest sets to be created under the “Ideas” banner. These are sets that are imagined by fans, voted on by fans, and then judged by a group of Lego employees. Every year, a few new sets are picked that get turned into actual Lego Ideas sets. Previous examples are the Back to the Future Delorean and Ghostbusters Ecto-1. Well the two newest ones are both based in pop culture, and both are incredibly awesome.
Wall-E and Doctor Who are getting their own official Lego sets later this year. See photos and video of the Wall-E Lego and Doctor Who Lego below. Read More »

Three months from now, Avengers: Age of Ultron will be in our rear view window. It comes out May 1 in the United States, and as is the case with any big film, a few days later we’ll all have overanalyzed the crap out of it.
At the moment, many questions remain about the film. Some of those are about to be answered as another batch of marketing is hitting. The first TV spot was just released and now Marvel has released sixteen new photos from the film. Some were in Empire last week, and some showed up in the trailers, but there are some great new looks at the Hulk, Scarlet Witch, Quicksilver and more here.
Check out the new Avengers: Age of Ultron pictures here, as well as the Hulkbuster and Vision and some cool posters courtesy of Fathead. Read More »
