Pokémon’s huge reach means that in Japan, it appears everywhere—plastered over trains, on food, on clothes, and in all sorts of toys and plushies and whatnot. That’s not the crazy part. That part is this new line of official toys, which literally is a collection of the severed rear ends of a variety of Pokémon.
Okay, so we’ve not seen much of The Force Awakens’ Captain Phasma in action so far. But we know that a), she has amazing shiny armor, b) she’s played by Game of Thrones’ Gwendoline Christie, and c) she’s got a cool cape. In Star Wars, that’s more than enough badassery to earn you an action figure that looks awesome.
The Master has always been one of Doctor Who’s most manic, dastardly villains—and her current incarnation as Missy, played by the fabulous Michelle Gomez, is no exception. Now she’s getting some pretty nifty action figures, that mania is getting transferred to plastic... and honestly, it looks kind of petrifying.
Earlier this month, ThreeZero revealed they were making some beautiful, 1:6 scale figures based on the post-apocalyptic RPG series Fallout. But if your budget doesn’t quite stretch to “ridiculously cool/expensive toys”, these new figures might just fit the bill: A fraction of the cost, but still completely awesome.
It’s been nearly three weeks since Force Friday came along and ravaged the wallets of Star Wars fans (myself included). Hot Toys nearly delivered a killing blow with the announcement of their first Force Awakens figures that day, but now they’re here to finish your wallet off once and for all with some gorgeous new…
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!
The iconic shots and vistas of Star Wars are already burned into the minds of fans the world over—but when they’re burned into paper, etched out and turned into spectacular 3D paper models, they look a lot prettier than the images seared into your head.
With the 30th Anniversary of Back To The Future next month, we’re about to get a whole lot of cool goodies to play with celebrating the adventures of Marty McFly and Doc Brown—starting off with these cool little minimate figures from the first film, revealed for the first time here on io9!
Sure, here in the West we had Force Friday for the new The Force Awakens merchandise, and got some cool action figures of the movie’s bad guys. But Bandai are knocking it out of the park with their Star Wars Figuarts, and the First Order has never looked better!
It’s been a fantastic year for Alien fans when it comes to toys. NECA have been churning out awesome figures, most notably the first ever
Jones the Cat Ripley figure to use Sigourney Weaver’s likeness, and a coll figure based on her Aliens look. Now Aliens Ripley is getting a rad toy to play with: The Power Loader!
There’s about a month and a half to go until the night of ghoulish glee that is Halloween—but why wait that long when you could be terrifying the living bejesus out of your neighbors right now with this petrifying replica of the Joker crawling out of your front lawn? This thing is one hell of a Garden Gnome.
It’s been two years since Hasbro revealed their Marvel Legends Rescue figure, their first figure based on Pepper Pott’s armored persona. But then it promptly vanished, never made for sale and leaving fans expecting that Rescue was gone forever. But rejoice! The figure is making a comeback... but it’ll be pricey to get.
Last month, we brought you a first look at Warpo’s cool, old-school advertising for its 12” Cthulhu action figure. Now the Great One is back, and this time he hungers for the minds of his action figure subordinates. Can Cthulhu be stopped? Find out in this exclusive look at a new TV spot!
Of all Kaiju, it’s only natural that Godzilla gets the premiere treatment. After all, he’s the most famous, and has long held the title of “King of Kaiju”. That royalty now extends to Funko’s ever-expanding line of vinyl toys, as Godzilla’s is pretty damn fantastic.
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 brilliant designs of the post-apocalyptic Fallout series have long been yearning to get turned into awesome toys. And while we’re getting some cutesy Funko Pops based on the series, a new line of figures from the folks over at Threezero is giving us a much more faithful—and pricier—batch of figures.
I mean, grumpiness is part and parcel of being the Batman. Darkness. No parents. Being called “The Dark Knight” means grumpiness is part of the job. But my god, the look on this figure’s face is so comically brooding that it looks like Batman’s just having the biggest sulk of his life.
If you’re familiar with the frequently ridiculous batshit insanity that is the Metal Gear Solid franchise, you’ll look at the above picture of a dog, in a sneaking suit, with an eye patch, and holding a knife it its mouth, and treat it as perfectly normal. The rest of us, meanwhile, will go “buh-whaaaaa???”
Bandai’s “Movie Realisation” Star Wars figures—which take the Empire and turn them into ancient samurai with flintlocks and katanas rather than blasters and lightsabers—are fantastic. But now the line’s got a few more additions that make it even cooler. Sandtroopers! Royal Guards! Boba Fett! Oh my.
