After Tony Stark sacrificed his life in order to save humanity in Avengers: Endgame, a memorial at his cabin saw the first arc reactor he ever built in Iron Man sent off in a loving fashion by Pepper Potts in an arrangement of flowers on the lake. It’s the same arc reactor that Pepper Potts turned into a memento as “Proof That Tony Stark Has a Heart.” And now Tony Stark’s arc reactor can be yours.
Hot Toys has announced a life-size Iron Man arc reactor prop replica in an acrylic case with the engraved “Proof That Tony Stark Has a Heart” display around it. And yes, it even lights up. Check it out below. Read More »
Earlier this week, we featured a new HasLab project asking collectors to crowdfund the creation of a life-size Cookie Monster replica. But the Hasbro collector initiative has a completely different toy that is vying for even more money in your wallet. It’s The Lord of Chaos, The Planet Eater, The Chaos Bringer. It’s the one and only Unicron.
After debuting in the 1986 animated Transformers: The Movie, HasLab wants to bring Unicron to your toy shelves in the form of the largest converting Transformers figure ever created. Unicron changes from planet mode to robot mode, and if you’ve got enough money, he can bring chaos and destruction to your toy collection. Read More »
When it comes to collectible art and vinyl soundtracks commemorating our favorite films and television shows, there’s almost no one better than Mondo. But every now and then, the company also likes to dip their toe into the collectible toy arena, and sometimes they do it in a truly weird way that only Mondo can deliver. And that’s what brings us to their latest endeavor: Mondoids.
The new Mondoids are said to come from the planet Mondoida, and they’ve come to our planet to make friends and eat snacks. That might be hard though since they appear as gnarly, slimy, gross versions of characters from Gremlins, Friday the 13th, Jurassic Park, Marvel Comics, and more. Get a look at the first wave of Mondoids figures available now. Read More »
Last year, Hasbro started a new crowdfunding initiative for unique and expensive toys called HasLab. It began with a massive Star Wars playset of Jabba the Hutt’s sail barge from Return of the Jedi that cost $500. The project ended up meeting its goal, and everyone who supported the project got their own sail barge scaled to 3 and 3/4 inch Star Wars figures. But HasLab’s next project isn’t quite as expensive, and it might have a little more appeal to the general public.
HasLab has announced their next crowdfunded project is a life-size replica of the beloved Sesame Street character known as Cookie Monster. It’s not exactly an action figure, but it’s not a full fledged puppet either. It’s a fully poseable, screen accurate blue plush replica of Cookie Monster with a skeleton that allows his arms, legs and fingers to be positioned in endless ways. Check it out and find out how you can pre-order it below. Read More »
If you’re lamenting missing out on those awesome new Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles figures that are coming to San Diego Comic-Con later this month, we’ve got some collectible toy news that might help lessen the blow.
Later this year, DC Collectibles is releasing a whole line of figures inspired by the recent animated adaptation of Batman vs Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. What makes them even cooler than your average action figure is that they are painted like the actual cartoons were turned into three-dimensional characters. Check out the Batman vs Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles action figures below. Read More »
Lucasfilm may not be going to San Diego Comic-Con with a panel for Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker, but that doesn’t mean the sci-fi saga won’t have a presence at the convention. The new Sith Trooper has just been revealed, and as the rumors during production previously indicated, it’s a full-on red Stormtrooper with a few interesting design differences. And if you happen to be at Comic-Con next week, you’ll have a shot at getting the first Star Wars Sith Trooper merchandise, including figures and more.

There aren’t many companies that make high-end, detailed action figures on the same level as quality as Hot Toys. The people behind these figures painstakingly recreate the most meticulous details of characters from Star Wars, the Marvel Cinematic Universe, and various other blockbuster franchises, and they give them incredibly lifelike head and face sculpts too. Now the Marvel Comics legend who created many characters turned into Hot Toys figures, is getting (another) one of his own.
The new Hot Toys Stan Lee figure brings the late legend to life in the form of a 1/6 scale figure modeled after his cameo appearance in Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2. It’s kind of the perfect meta version of Stan Lee to bring to life as what might be one of the last collectible tributes to the man himself. Check out photos of the new Hot Toys Stan Lee figure below. Read More »

Though Funko’s bread and butter is undoubtedly their signature POP! vinyl figures, their line-up has expanded to include vehicles that fit the trademark collectible toys. The Ghostbusters Ecto-1, the Jurassic Park Jeep Wrangler, the DeLorean time machine from Back to the Future, and more have all been turned into what are called Funko POP Rides.
But there’s also the Funko POP Deluxe line, which gives some larger, more unconventional vehicles the POP treatment. Most of them are Star Wars vehicles like Poe Dameron’s X-wing or Kylo Ren’s TIE Fighter, but now the fastest hunk of junk in the galaxy is being turned into the biggest hunk of plastic in Funko’s POP Deluxe line. Yes, it’s a Millennium Falcon Funko POP Deluxe. Read More »
In Jennifer Kent‘s 2014 movie The Babadook, one of the best-reviewed horror films of recent years, there’s a pop-up book about the title character, a monster who terrorizes people once they become aware of his existence.
