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 »
The Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles have had an endless array of comic book crossovers throughout their long history. They’ve met up with Archie, ALF, and Garfield, and more recently the heroes in a half-shell worked with the Ghostbusters and Batman. Now BOOM! Studios has the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles slated to crossover with Mighty Morphin’ Power Rangers, the original iteration of the Japanese-imported superhero team, in a new limited comic series starting this winter. Find out more below. 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 »
Unless you spent this past spring trapped in the burned-out ruins of Harrenhal, you probably know that HBO’s Game of Thrones came to an end a couple of months ago. That shortened final season drew some loud, negative responses from many viewers – but fear not, for author George R.R. Martin is not the reactionary type. If you think he saw the divisive reaction to the show’s ending and is currently scrambling to make changes to his A Song of Ice and Fire ending, rest easy knowing that he’s not going to change a damn thing. (Whether he’ll ever finish writing, of course, still remains to be seen.) 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 »

Brian De Palma‘s recent release Domino was not well-received, and reportedly suffered from behind-the-scenes set-backs. But fans craving more De Palma thrills are in luck: the filmmaker has a novel coming out. Co-written with Susan Lehman, the Brain De Palma novel is called Are Snakes Necessary?, and features a mystery-based plot that sounds ripped right from one of De Palma’s movies.
