Welcome back to Toy Aisle, io9's roundup of the sweet toys and merchandise we’ve seen this week. We’ve got a magical Doctor Strange figure, a rather large Homecoming Spider-Man, and a miserable way to treat your favorite astromech unit. Also: Legend of Zelda Clue. No, really!
Tony Stark can’t stop tinkering. That’s why anytime Iron Man shows up in a Marvel movie, he’s inevitably sporting a new suit of armor (I suppose merchandise might also play a small role.) The upcoming Spider-Man: Homecoming certainly won’t be an exception, as Tony Stark has a brand new Mark XLVII suit he’ll be…
Welcome back to Toy Aisle, io9's roundup of the most interesting toys we’ve seen this week. It’s a Guardians of the Galaxy blowout as we’ve got life-sized Groots, creepy plush Groots, and a fancy cassette player. But wait—there’s more, including a very swanky David Bowie figure and a very large Iron Man. Check it out!
Welcome back to Toy Aisle, io9's weekly roundup of the best toys in this galaxy (and any other). This week, a bizarro Godzilla figurine, a very slick Star-Lord figure, a fancy Star Trek lamp, and maybe more than a few new Star Wars toys, thanks to Celebration Orlando. Gird your wallets and check them out below!
Welcome back to Toy Aisle, io9's round up of the best toys we’ve seen all week. This time we’ve got tons of new Lego minifigures, the most amazing Magneto cape, entirely unrelated magnetic building blocks, a spectacularly poseable Spider-Man: Homecoming figure, and yes, the best grin on a Han Solo action figure ever.
Welcome back to Toy Aisle, io9's new weekly series gathering the latest and shiniest pop culture toys and merchandise around. This week: a very fancy take on Peter Parker’s low-rent Spider-Man: Homecoming look, a giant Optimus Prime, and a fully armed and operational battle teapot. Let’s take a look!
A fierce attitude is a good start, but when you’re a genetically-engineered raccoon trying to hold your own against giant space monsters, and even humanoids, it also helps to carry a big stick. Which is why Hot Toys’ new Rocket Raccoon figure comes with a gigantic blaster that’s almost as large as the character itself.
Not since Tuxedo Mask have we seen a hero with such epic control over the sassiness of his cape.
Hot Toys has unveiled the first look at its collection for Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2, and I already have a ton of questions. Mainly...how long before I misplace Groot?
Jingle All The Way might be one of the silliest holiday movies of the past two decades, but Turbo Man will always be cool. Sadly, there aren’t too many copies of the original action figure left, and they’re mostly fought over on eBay. But one guy got his hands on the original props and is running a Kickstarter to…
I was not prepared for Hot Toys to start doing their own stop-motion animations with their ridiculously detailed figures. There’s a strange level of uncanny valley-ness that makes it both kind of creepy and totally awesome.
That’s clearly what he’s doing to this poor Stormtrooper, right?
And she does look rather determined to steal them.
Okay, so Hot Toys’ latest Stormtrooper toy isn’t actually made out of porcelain—that would almost be as ridiculous as Star Wars branded printer paper. But it is covered in the traditional blue-and-white designs found on porcelain. None of that explains why it exists though, because this sure is weird.
When you need a bunch of fancy action figures to be out as soon as possible to coincide with the launch of a new movie, it’s good to be bad—especially if you’re the faceless entities of an evil empire. Which means if you want some Rogue One Hot Toys, then what you’re getting for the foreseeable future is all things…
Netflix’s Daredevil costume got a pretty solid update for season two, so it’s probably for the best that we’ve had to wait a while for Hot Toys to get round to making a Daredevil figure of its own. Now we get to see it in all its updated glory.
Cesar Romero’s take on the Joker for the Batman ‘66 TV show is iconic—but the very obvious moustache he refused to shave for the role, barely obscured with white face paint, is almost as famous as he is. Thankfully, Hot Toys remembered this crucial detail when bringing Romero’s Joker to action figure life.
Just think of all the fingerprint smudges that will soon make this very fancy soldier suddenly look a lot less fancy.
When Nike’s new Air Mags with working power laces are finally available, there is little doubt they’re going to cost a small fortune. But if you’ve always wanted Marty’s futuristic Nikes from Back to the Future II, and don’t mind never being able to wear them, Hot Toys’ new BTTF II Marty is a cheaper way to go.
Hot Toys, maker of preternaturally quality action figures, has their line of Suicide Squad toys on display at San Diego Comic-Con, as is standard procedure. What is less standard is that one of its figures is a character that hasn’t even been hinted at in all of Suicide Squad’s vast marketing, making it a bit of a…
