Fools Pay Homage To Michael Jordan With This Awesome Vinyl Figure

What you see here is Hong Kong independent toy maker Fools’ latest vinyl called Three King Two Three, which is a homage to one of the greatest basketball player of our time: Michael Jordan – complete in his famous Chicago Bulls number 23 jersey, but obviously, this collectible is not sanction by Chicago Bulls, nor it is licensed by NBA, or the man himself. We are not sure how it works, but I am guessing, there’s a loop hole in this licensing game since Fools did not explicitly said that it was Jordan. Anyways, priced at $249 plus shipping, this 13-inch vinyl figure comes with a handful of miniature basketballs by “Floating” sized to the vinyl figure.

Lowfool Dressed Up As Batman, Ponders Over A Tumbler Kiddie Ride

Can’t get enough of cutesy version of superheroes that are sometimes too sweet to handle? Well, if that’s the case, Fools’ Batman The Last Ride Vinyl Figure might just be right up your alley. Fools’ character, Lowfool is now garbed in classic Batman costume and bestowed with much exaggerated muscles with, if you must know, prominently protruding nipples, along with rather tiny legs like Mr. Incredible.

Fools’ Iteration Of ‘Superman‘ Is Crazy Cute And Super Irresistible

If you like comics and love the idea of caricaturised action or vinyl figures, I am sure you will be all over the Superman Playing Arcade Vinyl Figure by Fools. Officially called Lowfool vs Lowfool: Inner Conflict, this vinyl/PVC figure depicts Lowfool in Superman getup, seated and hunched over an arcade machine, playing a game of “Fools Fighter II” where his in-game self is facing off with a “Batman” Lowfool. Lowfool here is all hunky chunky with bulging muscle on his upper torso but like Mr. Incredible, it has lower limbs that are considerably tinier – a trait of a cartoonish character. Those anatomy, together with an angular face, frowning but fiery red eyes and topped with a Tom Selleck kind of smart ‘stash makes Lowfool irresistibly adorable.

You can’t call yourself a huge Captain America fan if you don’t know this year is the iconic superhero’s 75th birthday.

Movie-accurate Shin Godzilla Figure Will Hit The Stores Later This Year

Good news, fans of Godzilla (or Gojira for the purists), S.H. MonsterArts has unveiled their take of the Shin Gojira (literally new Godzilla, or Godzilla Resurgence in English) figure which you will be able to get your hands on when it becomes available this November in Japan. North America is slated to receive this example figure, though no date was offered at this point. The figure is not big in height – standing at just 7 inches tall, but stretches 16 inches long which is still pretty sizeable. However, more importantly, it is movie-accurate as this particular model was sculpted under the watchful eyes of Takayuki Takeya and according to the 3D data used in the movie itself.

Godzilla And Evangelion Mashup Results In An Unholy Unit Beast G Mode

With the creator of the cult anime series Evangelion co-directing the upcoming Japanese Summer blockbuster, Shin Godzilla (aka Godzilla Resurgence), it is only a matter of time we see the legendary kaiju go up against the giant bio-machine mecha, Evangelion. But before that ever happen (not that it will, btw), we stumbled upon a rather unholy matrimony between these two creatures to result in the Godzilla x Evangelion Action Figure by X-Plus Toys, which was unveiled at the Wonder Festival 2016 on July 24 at the Makuhari Messe in Chiba-city, Japan.

Iron Man Mark V x Joker Action Figure Mashup Is One Bat-ass Kicking Creation

DC Comics and Marvel never cross paths, but imagine if they did and super villains like the Joker got his hands on Tony Stark’s super suit (like many Marvel’s villains did in history), well, then in that case, this is what it will look like: an Iron Joker. Created by master of over imaginative (but crazy awesome) action figure customization, Sam Kwok Workshop, this Iron Man Mark V x Joker mashup started life as two different action figures: a 1/6th scale Hot Toys Iron Man Mark V and a Dark Knight Joker figure. After putting the two through Sam Kwok’s magical touches, an armored suited Joker is born and believe me, it is one bad Joker that the Dark Knight won’t want to mess with. There’s no Kryptonite to counter it and it flies, supposedly, unlike poor little Batty who can’t. Boo hoo.

Beasts of the Mesozoic: Finally, Dinosaur Figures That Are Poseable

As you may have heard, some dinosaurs were not what we thought they’d looked like millions of years ago.

This man is David Silva, who have a wealth of experience in designing toys for companies like McFarlane Toys, Hasbro and NECA. Since October 2009, he has been on the mission of creating his a line of resin model kits on dinosaurs and prehistoric animals in his own terms, and today, he has taken to Kickstarter to introduce a new series called Beasts of the Mesozoic: Raptor Series Action Figures.
