Okay. So Halloween might be behind us, and I can’t quite believe I’m saying this about a Marvel comic—especially one starring the Avenging Android that was one of the most charming parts of Age of Ultron. But the first issue of The Vision is a strangely chilling, page-turner of a comic. And it is fantastic.
Prop builders have created some awesome costumes in the recent past, but this might be one of the coolest: a life-sized Hulkbuster.
I was kind of hoping to write a review of the Avengers: Age of Ultron DVD/Blu-Ray that went something like, “If you were one of the people who didn’t love the Avengers sequel, this new DVD will change your mind.” Alas, I can’t write that, because it’s probably not true.
Marvel is still pumping out some really good and really fun movies but there’s definitely a little fatigue when it comes to juggling all these superheroes to set up all these storylines to connect all these worlds. A movie like Avengers: Age of Ultron was absolutely, totally good! But it tries to do too much without…
Just look at it. Look at that action figure and try not to hear a pithy remark from the voice of James Spader. This Ultron figure isn’t just amazing-looking, it’s here to snidely judge everything on your desk or toyshelf while doing so!
Disney’s ridiculously addictive “Tsum Tsum” puzzle app has spawned a merchandising fury of its own, as fans desperately try to get cuddly versions of the cutesy, stackable Disney characters from the game. But now Marvel’s heroes are joining in on the fun, and have never looked cuter.
The X-Files, Heroes and Twin Peaks are all coming back to our screens soon, with at least some of the original castmembers returning. Sounds great—except that this sort of thing doesn’t always work out. Here are the most ignominious examples of classic TV shows that were reanimated...but they came back wrong.
Hot Toys’ Age of Ultron Hulkbuster was already a freakishly detailed and ridiculously impressive toy—and not to mention insanely expensive. Now it’s getting even more ridiculous, and that can only mean good things.http://toybox.io9.com/the-hot-toys-h...
ACGHK 2015 took place over the weekend, and the best and brightest of the Asian Toy scene were out in full force, showing off their coolest products and teasing some new ones. Here’s the very best of what’s was on the show floor in Hong Kong!
This Friday, Ant-Man comes out in theaters—and by our reckoning, it’s the 106th live-action superhero movie to see theatrical release. How will it measure up to that proud tradition? To help you place it in superhero history, here’s our ranking of all 105 superhero films to date.
During the end credits of Age of Ultron, you may have noticed a giant statue of the Avengers fighting Ultron’s hordes (well, we hope you did, because it was the only thing shown then). But it turns this statue wasn’t just CG! It’s real, it’s beautiful, it’s at Comic-Con, and you can check it out right here.
You saw the Tweet earlier, now see these big fellas in action! Sorta. This giant LEGO Avengers sculpture is attracting quite a lot of onlookers on the San Diego Comic-Con floor.
Finally, Hot Toys have unveiled the final member of the Avengers waiting for a place in their Avengers: Age of Ultron. But aside from being a pretty nifty figure of the god of thunder, Thor also comes with a neat little trick to make himself even worthier—a phone app to let you create cool pictures of your fancy toys…
Part cosplay, part laser tag, and part interactive toy, Disney and Hasbro have teamed up to create a new line of toys and wearable accessories called Playmation that encourages kids to be more active during playtime, instead of just sitting on a couch poking at a touchscreen.
The whole point of the Hulkbuster is that it’s a suit that goes over Iron Man (well, that’s secondary to the point of it punching the Hulk, but you know what I mean) but so few of the myriad Hulkbuster toys have let you put a full Iron Man figure inside them. At last, King Art’s glorious Hulkbuster toy is changing…
Tony Stark goes through Iron Man suits like they’re going out of fashion. It seems like Hot Toys have a very similar approach, because they’ve announced another two Iron Man related figures that they would really like you to add to your Iron Legion.
They’ve teased it for a very long time, but it’s finally here: Bandai have revealed their Figuarts Hulkbuster, and they’ve really pushed the boat out.
Artist Daniel Kamarudin made these excellent illustrations that reimagines The Avengers characters as you know it. He took what we saw in the Marvel movies and turned them darker and added more of a fantasy flair to them. His depictions are great, I wouldn’t mind reading a story illustrated in this way.
He may have had to wait for all the main Avengers to get their toys first, but finally, here he is: Behold, The Vision, in the plastic/synthezoid flesh! Hot Toys’ latest Age of Ultron figure is so pretty, it’ll prove that even
a wallet can cry as you fork over the cash for this Avenging Android figure.
