If you were one of the many, many sad people who missed out on snagging the NES Classic Edition before Nintendo inexplicably pulled the plug on it, there’s still a chance you can get one without spending hundreds on eBay as ThinkGeek has apparently stumbled onto a massive cache of the consoles.
San Diego Comic-Con 2017 may be over, but io9's coverage lives on in our many, many posts, and we’ve collected them all here for you: movie and TV news and trailers, only-at-Comic-Con footage descriptions and experiences, amazing toys from the show floor, and so much more.
Kids and space ships go hand in hand, which is why so many of us fondly remember Lego set #1682, the Space Shuttle Launch, released 27 years ago. Last month Adam Woodworth created a tiny drone version of Lego’s shuttle that could fly indoors, but now he’s created a larger version that can soar through the sky like an…
I’m going to let you in on a little secret. Sunday’s actually the best day to attend Comic-Con. “But Charles,” you’re surely saying to yourself. “All of the explosive new stuff comes out on Saturday!”
Comic-Con means toys: Not just the ones you line up a zillion hours for to get at the convention, but all the toys you discover that are on their way to threaten your savings account over the next few months. We’ve seen badass generals, giant robots, and even shapely butts so far, but now it’s Marvel’s turn!
In The Force Awakens, we learned Leia Organa had spent the 30 years since Return of the Jedi kicking ass and taking names as the head of the Resistance. But even though it’s been over two years since the movie, the mighty General has yet to get an action figure of her awesome, elder self. Hasbro’s finally decided to…
Yesterday, Legendary unveiled the host of new Jaegers that will be the giant, metallic stars of Pacific Rim Uprising. Now we’ve got some official pictures of the toys that let us get up close and personal with the next iteration of badass, big-screen, monster-fighting mecha.
At last year’s Comic-Con, we brought you the vital news that Japanese statute maker Kotobukiya was planning a new line of “handsome men” statues that would kick off with DC’s Nightwing, an homage to one of—if not the—best butts in comics. Now, a year later, we’ve finally got our first look at the statue, and it’s a…
Three years ago, two sets of NYC-based heroes met up to defeat a supernatural menace in an IDW comic miniseries. The Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles and Ghostbusters are doing it again this November, with some very... interesting action figures to match.
It’s time to dig out and update the ol’ “why wasn’t this available when I was a kid?!’ list because buried in the day one Comic-Con news dump was this fantastic drivable X-34 Landspeeder from Radio Flyer that lets a pair of kids zoom across the sands at a blistering five miles per hour.
Star Wars: The Last Jedi is giving us a ton of vehicles, new and familiar, from returning classics like the A-Wings, or the First Order’s hulking new assault Walkers. But one new vehicle just revealed is already turning heads: Kylo Ren’s sleek new personal starfighter, the TIE Silencer.
It’s nearly time for a new Star Wars movie, which means we’re even closer to emptying our wallets all over some new Star Wars toys in the run up—and the show for The Last Jedi is kicking off a little early at Comic-Con with the change to get not one, but two new figures from movie.
DC Super Hero Girls, the collaboration between DC Comics and Mattel featuring DC’s most iconic female characters reimagined as teenagers attending school together, began as a series of online shorts meant to advertise a companion set of dolls (or action figures). Now, though, it’s become so much more.
Welcome back to Toy Aisle, io9's regular round up of the coolest toys we’ve seen all week. Although shiny San Diego Comic-Con exclusives might have already taken up most of this week’s toy news, there’s still a few more ways the world of action figures can drain your wallet.
There’s just one week left till San Diego Comic-Con returns to blast us in the face with awesome pop culture spectacle, cosplay, and fantastic, expensive goodies. Here’s the very best toys and collectibles at this year’s show that we can’t wait to line up forever for (or, more likely, pay even more for on eBay…
The 2017 San Diego Comic-Con is a little over a week away, which means toymakers are running out of time to hype their convention exclusives. Most should probably just give up now, though, because Hasbro’s latest Comic-Con exclusive reveal is essentially irresistible ‘80s nerd heroin.
Welcome back to Toy Aisle, io9's weekly roundup of the coolest toys and merchandise we’ve seen all week. This time we’ve got an insanely nerdy Star Wars SDCC exclusive, the most affordable way to replicate Spider-Man’s new eye-moving mask, and much, much more!
Start your weekend with a pretty super deal. Amazon is marking down a ridiculous amount of Marvel stuff, from tees and toys, to dog beds and Blu-rays. It’s basically a comic book lover’s dream, except with less Stan Lee. But you’d better take advantage of this today, because it’ll disappear quicker than you can say…
If you’re going to call something a firetruck, should its sole purpose really be to extinguish flames? That’s like a food truck driving around and disposing of people’s lunches. It just doesn’t make any sense, which is why YouTube’s PeterSripol upgraded a toy firetruck with a functional flamethrower so that at least…
