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 brings a new assembly of Star Wars and Star Trek items, as well as some new Funko POP Vinyls for characters from Labyrinth and the first ever Indiana Jones figure in the collectible line. There’s also a vinyl release of the Swiss Army Man soundtrack on the way, a couple new South Park figures, and a cuddly friend from Finding Dory.
See all that and more in this edition of The Toy Box.
Swiss Army Man: Lakeshore Records and iam8bit Vinyl Soundtrack
After you see Swiss Army Man this summer (expanding to more theaters this weekend), you’ll likely want the soundtrack and score composed by Andy Hull and Robert McDowell of Manchester Orchestra. The good news is there’s a vinyl version of the soundtrack coming this fall with album art from Mark Englert, an ocean blue vinyl disc and a paper doll playset. And priced at $29.99, it’s a pretty great buy for all you recordheads out there.
Star Wars: The Force Awakens: Jakks C-3PO Vac Metal Figure
Coming exclusively to San Diego Comic-Con this summer is a new Star Wars: The Force Awakens figure from Jakks Pacific featuring an 18-inch metallic C-3PO, complete with red arm. Apparently it’s the first time a C-3PO figure of this scale has been offered with the classic reflective finish.. He also has seven points of articulation if you feel the need to open him up for some reason. It’ll cost $60 from Entertainment Earth and will only be sold at Comic-Con.
Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: DreamEX 1/6 Scale Casey Jones Figure
If the new version of Casey Jones in Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Out of the Shadows isn’t for you, then you might prefer this new DreamEX 1/6 scale figure of the hockey-masked vigilante. He’ll come with all the right accessories including his signature hockey stick, a baseball bat, golf club, field hockey stick and more. Hopefully one of the items is also a cricket bat, but he would have to know what a crumpet is before he understood cricket. There’s no price available for the figure yet, but Lunar Toy Store posted the pictures, so they should have more details sometime down the road.
Alien: H.R. Giger Concept Albino Big Chap Alien
For those who don’t know, the original design for the xenomorph by H.R. Giger had the skin of the creature originally looking more translucent. However, creating the practical effect of the xenomorph with that kind of skin proved to be rather difficult, so we got the much darker toned version of the creature we all know today.
NECA is honoring this design for the xenomorph with a new 1/4 scale version of the creature that will be available for release this October after being on display at Comic-Con this summer. The figure stands 22″ tall with 25 points of articulation and a hinged jaw and an extending inner mouth. No price is a available yet, but the figure will only get a single production run, so you better keep an eye out for it.
South Park: Kid Robot’s Mysterion and Professor Chaos Figures
From the creators of South Park, Trey Parker and Matt Stone, comes South Park: The Fractured But Whole videogame, a sequel to 2014’s award winning game South Park: The Stick of Truth. In celebration of the new game, Kidrobot brings you Mysterion and Professor Chaos Medium Figures! Standing 7″ tall each, Mysterion and Professor Chaos make the perfect additions to any South Park collection! Each figure retails for $49.99
You can get them over at the Kid Robot website right here.
