Ludens 1/6 Scale Action Figure

Saturday, October 21st, 2017

If you’re wondering who Ludens, AKA (The Playing Man) is, he’s the current Kojima Productions mascot, created to replace the Foxhound logo after the studio’s split from Konami; Hideo Kojima, namesake of the studio, is the mastermind behind the Metal Gear video game series. The Ludens figure is the creation of Hong Kong-based Sentinel Toys. Highly detailed in its construction, this figure utilizes a specially-designed inner frame, providing Ludens with 46 points of articulation, and an EVA suit made of ABS, PVC and real cloth. Additional features include light up functions, moving eyes, a smoke visor to replace the standard clear visor, a lance, beam flag, and three sets of hands.

Currently available for pre-order from D4 Toys, with an expected release date of March 2018.

Bandai – Marvel Manga Realization War Machine

Friday, October 6th, 2017

Bandai’s latest update to the Marvel Manga Realization series is a Samurai’d War Machine. This highly detailed and articulated figurine comes in at 6.9″ tall, and comes with 2 Pairs of optional hands, a katana, backpack, and stand. What I love most about this figure is the flintlock cannon and volley gun; period appropriate firearms to be sure, but man, that recoil and heft.

Ultimate Future RoboCop 7-Inch Scale Action Figure

Friday, September 29th, 2017

Did you know there was a RoboCop animated series? Yeah, pretty crazy, right? Well, this figure isn’t from that. Rather, it’s based on the Ultimate Future RoboCop from the Frank Miller comic RoboCop vs. The Terminator. The figure is 7 inches, features over 25 points of articulation, and comes with his standard Auto 9 pistol as an accessory; y’know, along with all the missiles and the minigun.

Anovos – Star Trek Mirror Universe Tribble Plush

Wednesday, August 30th, 2017

Anovos is releasing a plush toy of the Mirror Universe Tribble from Star Trek. With all the multiplacative ability of the regular universe Tribble, but with the addition of pointy teeth, these Tribbles are nasty, with black and red fur, and they happen to love Klingons. Sadly, they aren’t rocking a goatee, but it is what it is.

The Mirror Universe Tribble will be available starting next month (which is only a couple days away).

GALAC-TAC (Green Wolf Gear Exclusive) Olive Drab Figure

Thursday, July 27th, 2017

We are currently living in a world where a company created an action figure based on a set of cosplay armor inspired by unarguably the most popular space fantasy series of all time.

Neat.

Based on Ryan B. Flowers’ GALAC-TAC, Mandalorian-inspired armor, this figure from Green Wolf Gear comes wearing a set of GALAC-TAC armor, with a launcher, and a combat uniform very clearly inspired by Crye’s G3 uniform set.

I reiterate: neat.

    Thomas The RC Hexapod

    Sunday, March 12th, 2017

    I was on Reddit earlier today, and happened upon this .gif of a RC Hexapod modified with a Thomas the Tank Engine turret, complete with a working flamethrower. To be blunt, I found it hilarious, and thankfully the source was provided in the thread, which can be seen above.

    It’s a product of YouTube channel PeterSripol, who modified the original Hexapod into the monstrosity it now is.

    These proved so popular in social media that they decided to offer them for sale in order to raise funds for their favorite charity, SOC-F.

    Marvel Now! Agent Venom ARTFX+ Figurine

    Friday, December 16th, 2016

    agentvenom-6

    No, Marvel isn’t doing a series of tacticool re-imagining figures of their classic franchise characters. Rather, this is an Agent Venom figurine under the Kotobukiya ARTFX+ line. Long story short, Flash Thompson has the Venom symbiote and he’s using it to fight America’s enemies as a special agent. Anyway, this highly detailed and poseable figurine is currently available for pre-order.

    Mattel Tommy Burst

    SSD dug up this blast from the past, which featured cap blasting action and actual smoke that came out of the barrel.

    They really don’t make ’em like this anymore.

    Star Wars Rogue One Rapid Fire Imperial AT-ACT Vehicle

    Wednesday, November 9th, 2016

    hsb7076lg

    The name for this thing sure is a mouthful, huh?

    Anyway, the Star Wars Rogue One Rapid Fire Imperial AT-ACT Vehicle is a (very clearly) Kenner-inspired toy set; it really looks like it was manufactured in the 70s. The All Terrain Armored Cargo Transport comes complete with firing projectiles, a removable cargo bay playset, and three 3 3/4″ figures: C2-B5, Jyn Erso, and an Imperial AT-ACT driver. If that isn’t enough, it’s also controllable with your smartphone. Neat.

    Tier1 Accessories – TitanFall 2 Precision Armory Blind Pick Series 1

    Sunday, November 6th, 2016

    img_4118

    I was at a certain video game-centric retailer picking up a copy of Infinite Warfare today, and while I was checking out I noticed the above blind pick collectable boxes for sale. This one, which comes from a company called Tier1 Accessories, consists of a line of Zinc Alloy miniatures of some of the weapons from TitanFall 2; to be exact, 5 pilot weapons, or a titan weapon, which in this case would be the Ronin titan’s sword.

    img_4119

    I got the above sniper rifle, which is cool. I really, really wanted that sword, but they aren’t called “blind pick” for nothing.

    If you can’t find these in your area, they’re also available for purchase from the link below.

    McFarlane Toys – Lucile Prop Replica

    Friday, November 4th, 2016

    mf14517lg

    McFarlane Toys is releasing a replica of Negan’s barbed wire-upped bat Lucille from the Walking Dead television series. It’s made of soft plastic, and although it’s intended for ages 17+, it’s not so great for bludgeoning the undead, or pesky human survivors.

    You can probably DIY your own version for less money, but on the other hand it wouldn’t be officially licensed.

    Star Wars – Tatooine Cosplay Starter Kit

    Wednesday, August 31st, 2016

     

    OK, so these two items are in no way, shape, or form known in any official terms as the “Tatooine Cosplay Starter Kit”. However, if you are looking for either a foam Tusken Raider’s Gaffi Stick, or are cosplaying as a Gamorrean guard (The pig guys that guard Jabba’s palace) and need one of their weapons (in foam), then these are honestly your best bet. We got ours on Disney property, so if you’re ever in the area be on the lookout for them.
