The Toy Box is a 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 new Star Trek goodies for the 50th anniversary, including a new Barbie doll set and an exclusive bobbelhead diorama coming to San Diego Comic-Con. In addition, there’s a great new Bill and Ted’s Excellent Adventure movie set that comes with an action figure of George Carlin as Rufus, new Funko POP Vinyls for Power Rangers and Preacher, and a few new Star Wars items, including a couple featuring BB-8.
See all that and more in The Toy Box after the jump.
The Empire Strikes Back – Kotobukiya’s ARTFX+ Yoda and R2-D2 Statue 2-Pack
The smaller characters from the Star Wars sequel The Empire Strikes Back get their own 1/10 scale statues. For $59.99 you’ll get a Yoda that stands at 2.5 inches and a dirty, swampy R2-D2 standing at 3.5 inches. In addition, a translucent spirit Yoda figure will come with the pack as a bonus figure.
Interchangeable parts allow for varying poses including R2-D2 being able to stand on either two or three legs or Yoda having his arms crossed or reaching out to use the Force to pull Luke’s X-Wing out of the swamp.
The set is available for pre-order at Kotobikiya right now and is scheduled for release in November.
Conan the Barbarian – Pop Culture Shock Collectibles Classic and War Paint Statues
Conan the Barbarian is getting not one but two new collectible statues from Pop Culture Shock Collectibles. The company’s president Jerry Macaluso says, “When you think ‘Barbarian’ you think ‘Conan,’ and when you think Conan you think Arnold. There would be no clemency given for this one, the likeness had to be flawless. And I think we nailed it. I’d hold it up with the best Schwarzenegger pieces ever made.”
The one on the left is the classic version that will have an edition of 325 pieces and will cost you $849.99 while the one on the left is the war paint variant limited to 275 pieces that will cost you $899.99. Both statues are 1/3 scale standing at 29 inches tall with fabric clothing and a metal sword. If you want, you can order them as a set for $1750.00 and both of their edition numbers will match. But only 75 sets like that will be sold.
The Nightmare Before Christmas – Bradford Exchange Cuckoo Clock
Tim Burton’s classic The Nightmare Before Christmas comes to life in this cuckoo clock from The Bradford Exchange. Every hour, on the hour, there are lights, motion and music with characters from the stop-motion animated movie directed by Henry Selick. When the cuckoo clock chimes, “This Is Halloween” sounds instead with Zero popping in and out of Town Hall. Jack and Sally have their own space on the clock while Lock, Shock and Barrel sit down at the bottom.
The Bradford Exchange has the clock available right now for $199.95.
Star Wars: The Force Awakens – BB-8 Teapot
How would you like the most adorable droid in the galaxy to serve you tea? That’s exactly what you can do with this new 32-ounce teapot that is made to look like Poe Dameron’s trusty droid. What’s cool about the new teapot is that the pot itself sits inside of a teacup that you can use to serve yourself. Entertainment Earth has the BB-8 teapot on sale now for $39.99 but it won’t ship until October.
Alien – Facehugger Ski Mask
If may be summer, but it’s never too soon to prepeare to keep yourself warm this winter. Or maybe you have a little icy getaway planned sometime in the near future. If that’s the case, and you need a way to keep your face warm on the slopes, why not spice up your ski attire with this Alien ski mask that makes it look like you have a facehugger latching onto your head. It’ll cost you $29.99 at Entertainment Earth and will ship in October.
The Big Bang Theory – Entertainment Earth’s Sheldon Action Figures
If you’re looking to have an action figure of the awkward nerd Sheldon from the hit CBS sitcom The Big Bang Theory, then Entertainment Earth has your wish granted not one, not twice, but three times.
From Biff Bang Pow! comes three different 3.75 inch action figures of Jim Parsons as Sheldon. Each different figure has Sheldon wearing a t-shirt featuring The Riddler, Shazam or Superman logos. The figures aren’t the most pretty creations, but they have five points of articulation and the same cheap cardboard diorama of Sheldon’s living room.
