Frequent Toybox readers will probably have surmised at this point that a good cape on an action figure can make me interested. Mainly because I enjoy the simple things in life, but also because nothing beats a lovely, swooshy cape. Alas, not even a cape can make me become a fan of these DC retro figures.
Old school action figures are in the middle of a renaissance. You've got Funko's Reaction line emulating the old style for new properties, or Jumbo-sized recreations of classic superhero figures. The next logical step? Apparently, it's unarticulated, plus sized statues of said retro figures.
Not content with merely being one Master Chief, this new statue from Kotobukiya has decided to become three different iterations of the video game supersoldier instead, thanks to the addition of some nifty addon packs that let you kit out your Spartain whichever way you want.
Age of Ultron really, really wants you to know that the Hulkbuster is awesome, judging by the amount of toys and merchandise it's racking up ahead of the film's release. But honestly, if it means we get something as cool looking as this set of statues, I'm not going to complain. Bring on the Hulkbusting!
Can't seem to get enough Star Wars? Now here's a 15-inch altar at which you can worship, with ARTFX Kotobukiya statues of Yoda and Palpatine fighting and shooting sparks out their fingers at each other, and it'll only cost you $174.99. It's relatively big, with Palpatine standing 11 inches tall, but whatever that…
