The Toy Box is a new weekly feature at /Film that will round up some of the newest and coolest collectibles, decorations, gadgets and other memorabilia that you nerds might want for your shelves.
This week we’ve got some good stuff from Adult Swim’s fantastic Rick & Morty, AMC’s adaptation of Preacher, several new Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles collectibles, a few cool items from Star Wars and Star Trek, a bloody new Friday the 13th figure and much more.
Preacher and Rick & Morty Funko POP Vinyls
Two new sets of Funko POP Vinyls are coming to shelves this summer. First up, the animated duo of Rick & Morty are on the way in July. Rick has the usual spit around his mouth and his trusty flask in had. Meanwhile, Morty has those Mega Tree seeds that end up being hidden in a very uncomfortable place. No, not the back of a Volkswagen.
In addition, Preacher is getting a set of figures coming in August. There’s only three figures revealed so far featuring Jesse Custer, Arseface and Cassidy. It’s a bummer that Tulip isn’t included in this batch, but hopefully this is just the first series of Preacher Funko POP Vinyl figures.
Back to the Future Dorbz
Doc Brown and Marty McFly get turned into little Dorbz figures this July, making perfect companions to the Funko POP Vinyls that are already out there. Plus, a new Dorbz Ridez release brings a tiny version of the DeLorean time machine to life, complete with Einstein, the world’s first time traveler.
NECA Cinemachines Series 2: Predator, Predator 2, Alien
Here’s NECA’s second series in their collection of die-cast collectible vehicles from film and television. This time the vehicles include the scout ship from Predator, the tribe ship from Predator 2 and the Narcissus shuttle from Alien.
Each of the Cinemachines comes with a display stand, and while they look like Mirco Machines size vehicles, they actually measure 5 to 6 inches long.
If you like this series of toys from NECA, be sure to check out Series 1 featuring vehicles from Alien and Aliens. Otherwise, Series 2 will be available for purchase in September.

Star Wars: The Force Awakens – Melted Darth Vader Helmet
This will be rather difficult to get ahold of due to its limited availability and salty price tag, but it will be well worth the cost. Artist Hsin Ho has crafted a fiberglass and resin sculpture of the melted Darth Vader helmet that Kylo Ren talks to and basically worships in Star Wars: The Force Awakens.
There are black and grey versions of the sculpt, but each is limited to 20 pieces each. With such a limited run, it’s no surprise to learn that each of them will cost $500, even though they’re not quite life size. Pre-orders are being taken through June 4th, so if you happen to have the cash for this item, you should probably act fast. Head to The World’s End to make the purchase.

Alien: NECA’s Life Size Facehugger
NECA already released a set featuring a life size facehugger alien, complete with a light-up egg for it to fit inside. But if you just don’t have the room for the egg anywhere in your house, now you can just get the facehugger by itself.
The foam replica measures nearly three and a half feet long and has a bendable tail for you to wrap around visitors’ necks in order to latch on to their face. Thankfully it’s not full of acidic blood.
