    BAIT Wu-Tang Transformers for San Diego Comic-Con

    Even casual fans of the Wu-Tang Clan know that they prefer Voltron to the Autobots and Decepticons, but that hasn’t stopped BAIT from bringing them together with the latter in a new line of BAIT Wu-Tang Transformers for this year’s upcoming San Diego Comic-Con. The BAIT Wu-Tang Transformers feature four Transformers with the Wu-Tang logo in […]

  • Hot Toys Anakin Skywalker: Arguably Too Realistic

    Hot Toys Anakin Skywalker: Arguably Too Realistic

    Anakin Skywalker, the original moral relativist, is appropriately enough now the subject of a new figure from Hot Toys that some people will find creepily realistic, while others will proudly display on their mantel – or wherever it is they keep their action figures. And besides, it’s not like Star Wars fans have a ton […]

    ‘Brand Knight': Illustrator Turns Brands Into Action Figures (Pics)

    It’s been a while since I wrote up one of those illustration projects where somebody turns famous brands into something else – it’s kind of a played out idea by this point, but Dexter Maurer has breathed new life into the concept with Brand Knight, a series of illustrations that reimagine various brands as the […]

    If you’re a fan of the Netflix original series Narcos, it’s possible that you’ve found yourself at your desk reenacting your favorite scenes or imagining new ones, all staring infamous drug lord Pablo Escobar.

  • ‘Pulp Fiction’ Explicit Talking Figures

    ‘Pulp Fiction’ Explicit Talking Figures

    When toys deign to talk to us humans they usually choose to spout innocuous phrases like “hello, I am Elmo,” “commence to jiggling,” or “hello, I am the ‘Macho Man’ Randy Savage.” But Pulp Fiction Explicit Talking Figures are somewhat different, borrowing their arsenal of spoken words from the mind of Quentin Tarantino. Pulp Fiction […]

    Iron Man Hulkbuster Animated Action Figure by Comicave Studios (Video)

    I don’t really understand the appeal of most toys in the adult world, but even a grouch like me has to admit that this prototype revealed by Marvel and Comicave Studios is pretty darn cool. Like most things that seem to happen nowadays, it’s a promotion for the upcoming Avengers: Age of Ultron, but even if you’re […]

  • Walter White 1/6th Scale Action Figure is Scarily Realistic

    Walter White 1/6th Scale Action Figure is Scarily Realistic

    Of all the TV characters you might want to shrink down to 1/6th scale and keep with you at all times, Breaking Bad‘s Walter White is probably near the bottom. And yet, why do I get the feeling that this upcoming Heisenberg figure from Hong Kong’s Threezero is going to sell almost as well as White’s Blue Sky […]

    Artist VSE OK Shows Action Figures in the Real World (Pics)

      Russian photographer VSE OK has one very specific specialty: Photographing action figures in various (and sometimes disturbing) real world situations. The pictures are dark, funny, and probably aren’t going to win VSE OK any fans among these characters’ corporate overlords any time soon. One of the cool things about VSE OK’s work is that […]
