When a fancy new toy is revealed, it’s not uncommon to have to wait a few months to actually get your hands on one. But Hot Toys has been testing the resolve of Iron Man fans who pre-ordered the company’s towering Hulkbuster figure over two and a half years ago, and will now have to wait just a little while longer…
Welcome back to Toy Aisle, io9's weekly reminder to hide your life savings somewhere safe, because there are so many goddamn awesome toys coming out.

Welcome back to Toy Aisle, io9's weekly roundup of the fanciest toys around. This week we’re already hiding our wallets from amazing SDCC exclusives, plus Hot Toys teases its next Wonder Woman figure, Thor: Ragnarok comes to Lego, and a Transformer turns into a giant medieval dragon. No, really!
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.

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.
