Don’t bother spending your weekends scouring toy stores for hard-to-find Star Wars figures. Nothing on the shelves at Toys ‘R’ Us can even begin to compare with Hot Toys’ new First Order Stormtrooper from its Life-Size Masterpiece Series. Standing over six-feet tall it’s easily the most impressive Star Wars figure…
Last year saw the introduction of the first Hillary Clinton action figure, and as the 2016 presidential election heats up, it’s only fair that Bernie Sanders be miniaturized as well. So starting today you can pre-order the first Bernie figure, and help his campaign at the same time.
There have been hundreds of Marvel characters introduced in the comics over the years, and it seems like almost every last one has showed up in Hasbro’s Marvel Legends figure line. But you can only squeeze so much detail into a three or six-inch figure, which is why Hasbro is now supersizing its Marvel Legends line to…
As one of the most popular characters in the Star Wars universe, there is no shortage of Chewbacca figures to be found. But Chewbacca figures that include his luxurious coat of Wookiee fur? Thinkway Toys might be the first with its 17-inch tall Chewie figure that’s also completely animated.
Break out your Kermit flail gifs, everyone, because we’re not only getting Muppet action figures—they look pretty damn fabulous, too.
They fought for freedom wherever there was trouble—and by god, there were a lot of them. Over 150 soldiers, from common infantry to terrifying cyborgs, made up the GI Joe: A Real American Hero team in the ‘80s (and early ‘90s), and we’ve ranked every. Single. One.
All those muscles meant he could defend Eternia, but put a pencil in He-Man’s hand and sit him down in front of the SATs and suddenly he’s not so heroic. And is that who you really want your kids idolizing?
With Star Wars: The Force Awakens comes a bunch of new characters that fans of the saga have already embraced, but will any of them ever hold a candle—or lightsaber—to Vader? Not when there’s a giant animated action figure now available in his likeness.
Whether you’ll be hitting the stores at midnight, or waiting until the crack of dawn to begin your The Force Awakens toy hunt, try and remember that this will be the first Star Wars collecting adventure for some kids, so try not to trample any little ones as you reach for that last Rylo Ken.
The level of detail and realism in action figures has improved by leaps and bounds over the past decade, but it’s still hard not to be flabbergasted by this sixth-scale Hermione Granger. Has anyone seen Emma Watson lately? Because there’s a good chance there’s a curse trapping her inside this figure.
Given he’s appeared in almost as many films as Gene Hackman has, it was only a matter of time before Hot Toys’ talented artists would give us a figure based on one of Samuel L. Jackson’s characters. And Nick Fury from Captain America: The Winter Soldier is as good as any.
As Hot Toys slowly works its way through the Iron Man universe, it was inevitable that after producing action figures for almost every last armored suit Tony Stark has built, it would eventually get around to turning characters like Gwyneth Paltrow’s Pepper Potts into sixth-scale collectibles.
Update: Guys, I got this totally wrong. Not about the figure being giant and awesome, but it was made by Comicave, not Hot Toys, and it is totally not for sale at this point. My apologies to Comicave for misattributing this stunning achievement (I still think black magic was somehow involved).
This weekend, toy collectors will swarm to the Convention Center in San Diego, in search of rare and limited edition toys. Because we all know toys are a fantastic investment! Right? Not always. Here are 15 toys and action figures that have gotten more and more worthless.
Hasbro’s Titan Hero series take action figures back to their humbler roots when size was more important than articulation. But that also means the 12-inch figures are perfect for younger kids who play rough with their toys, and don’t mind that the new Titan Hero Hulkbuster is almost as big as they are.
Can’t wait until September to get your hands on some new Star Wars toys? If you’re headed to the San Diego Comic-Con in July, you won’t have to wait because Hasbro will happily sell you this SDCC-exclusive Stormtrooper figure featuring the new helmet design seen in The Force Awakens teasers.
It’s a real testament to the talented sculptors and artists working at Hot Toys that a sixth-scale action figure that looks like it’s been a child’s only play toy for ten years is one of their most desirable creations. But the company’s new Avengers: Age of Ultron Ultron Mark I is easily one of the most detailed…
