The fourth season of Rick and Morty has come and gone, and it’s already available on Blu-ray and DVD. While fans are eagerly anticipating the show’s return for season five (whenever that may be), Loot Crate will attempt to hold them over with a new box of exclusive Rick and Morty gear and collectibles to kick off 2021.
A new Rick and Morty Loot Crate is going on sale starting tonight, and the theme is “DYS-FUNCTION,” as it is with almost every episode of the Adult Swim animated series. There will be a bunch of Rick and Morty-related items in the box, but perhaps the most satisfying is a replica of the butter robot from “Something Ricked This Way Comes,” a throwback to the ninth episode of the very first season. Check it out below. Read More »

Hasbro’s crowdfunded toy initiative HasLab has fully funded some pretty big collectible projects. The first was a massive playset of Jabba’s Sail Barge from Return of the Jedi scaled to 3.75-inch figures. They also successfully funded an enormous Unicron figure from Transformers. And most recently, there was the giant Sentinel crafted to tower over Marvel Legends X-Men figures. Now the latest project goes back to Star Wars, but with a vehicle from the new Disney+ series The Mandalorian.
In the first season of The Mandalorian, the titular bounty hunter cruises around space in his ship, known as the Razor Crest. And HasLab has created a vehicle playset of the entire ship, again scaled to the 3.75-inch action figures from The Vintage Collection. It’s incredibly detailed, and the good news is it’s already funded and has unlocked the two bonus tiers. The bad news is that it’s an incredible expensive collectible. Check out The Mandalorian ship playset and get more details below. Read More »

The symbiotic relationship between merchandise and movies can be a frustrating one. Most times, action figures and other assorted collectibles arrive on shelves roughly a month or so before the movie that inspired them actually hits theaters. For established franchises, this isn’t all that big of a deal, because fans will always be hungry for the latest Star Wars, Marvel, and DC Comics action figures. But for other movies, such as the latest big screen adaptation of Dune, it’s not so easy.
Dune has a bit of an uphill battle to convince fans to see it in theaters, especially in the age of coronvirus. And in the case of the upcoming McFarlane Toys action figures for Denis Villeneuve‘s adaptation of Frank Herbert‘s book, fans have to decide whether they want to take a chance on buying action figures for a movie that they might not fall in love with. But by the time they make up their mind, getting their hands on these Dune action figures may not be so easy. Either way, check them out below. Read More »
