UPDATE: If you missed out on these figures from San Diego Comic-Con, you now have another opportunity to get them. Get all the details on how you can pre-order them below.
Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles were all the rage when I was a kid. Not only was there the live-action film adaptation from 1990 that I could rewatch on VHS every day, but there was an animated series that I could watch when there were still cartoons playing all over the place every Saturday morning. And while there were plenty of Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles action figures that I collected over the years, I was always disappointed that none of them looked like how the turtles appeared in the movies. If you felt the same way, the good news is we don’t have to feel that disappointment anymore.
NECA has announced another one of their San Diego Comic-Con exclusives, and it’s a four-pack of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, sculpted and styled exactly how they appeared in the 1990s live-action movie. They even come inside of a package that looks like the original VHS slip case for the video tape. These might be the best Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles movie action figures ever made. Read More »

Last week, you might have been weirded out by Funko’s release of a certain set of action figures in their Savage World line-up that turned iconic slashers like Michael Myers and Jason Vorhees into post-apocalyptic, pulp fiction style action figures with some of the biggest muscles you’ve ever seen. The line is inspired by the classic Masters of the Universe figures from decades ago, and thankfully, a more appropriate brand name is getting the Savage World treatment for fans to collect.
Thundercats is one of the most beloved animated shows of the 1980s, and since the character designs weren’t far off in style from the super ripped characters of Masters of the Universe, they’re the perfect intellectual property to get their own Savage World action figures.

One of the best video game adaptations of all time is undoubtedly GoldenEye 64. The game took the first James Bond movie starring Pierce Brosnan and turned it into a polygonal first-person shooter that also gave us one of the most endlessly entertaining multiplayer experiences of any video game in history. But it wasn’t always fun, especially when some jerk decided to play as the signature, short James Bond villain Oddjob.
Thankfully, if you ever find yourself plugging in the ol’ Nintendo 64 for a round of GoldenEye 64, now you can stop anyone from playing as Oddjob because it’s totally unfair. A couple of the game’s creators recently took part in an oral history of GoldenEye 64, and they confirm that playing as the hat-throwing henchman from Goldfinger is cheating. Read More »
