New Hasbro Transformers Decepticon City Action Figure Is 20 Inches Huge!

If there’s one thing about the good’ol Transformers, i.e. the 80s cartoon variety, which boggles my mind is how the heck the huge-ass Decepticon, the equivalent of Autobot’s Metroplex, Trypticon, is not a human-like robot but a dinosaur (specifically, a T-rex)? This question lingered in my mind for quite sometime and gradually took a backseat until recent when we heard Hasbro has announced a new version of the good’ol classic Trypticon and man, does it look awesome. I’d be lying if I say I weren’t stoked. Targeted to be released this Fall, this $149.99 Decepticon monstrosity is not nearly as enormous as the Metroplex (that thing stands 2 feet tall!), coming in at 20 inches tall and 9 inches wide in Dino mode, and 36 inches across, 30 inches long, and 16 inches tall as a city.

1/6th Scale Robotic Batman In Off-White Is Kind Of Steampunk-ish

The world as it is, is facing a shit load of threats. Socially, the general population is frowning upon the prospect of robots taking over their livelihood and if that’s true, could this real-world fate apply to the world of comic? You know, such as for example, superheroes being replaced by robots? Well, that’s exactly the topic picked up by collectible figure maker ThreeAA, entitled Steel Age. Following the first robo-Batman, which apparently has yet to be shipped, is another cape crusader, dubbed Arctic Batman. Arctic Batman, as the name implies, is a robotic Batman armed for arctic operations and hence the off-white getup that feels rather steampunk-ish. Continue reading 1/6th Scale Robotic Batman In Off-White Is Kind Of Steampunk-ish

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. Continue reading Fools Pay Homage To Michael Jordan With This Awesome Vinyl Figure

Beast Kingdom Egg Attack Doctor Strange Is Wayyyyyy Too Cute

Though it has its funny moments, the silver screen version of Doctor Strange is anything but kawaii (cute) and while some comic/movie collectible makers would rush to create movie-accurate action figures of the Sorcerer Supreme, Beast Kingdom chose to dish out the cuter version under the brand’s Egg Attack series. So, yes. Strange can be cute too and even with a stern expression, he’s wayyyyyy too cute! Then again, I have no issue with the angry cute look.

Iron Man Shape-changing Armor Won’t Change Shape But No Less Awesome

Tony Stark has never stop innovating. The fictional super hero in exoskeleton suit has developed more armored suits than your digits can count, but if we were to single out one suit from recent time worthy of a special mention, it would be the shape-changing armor which appeared in 2015’s Invincible Iron Man comics. Why? Because, it can turn into a samurai-like armor or even a Hulkbuster in a snap without having to suit out and suit up, and also because the brilliant minds over at Chemical Attack and Japanese toy maker, Sentinel Toys, has given this bleeding edge armor a Japanese makeover and the result is absolutely fabulous. Continue reading Iron Man Shape-changing Armor Won’t Change Shape But No Less Awesome

Nativity Scene In Modern Context Features Hipsters, Segways And Welfie

Modern Nativity calls it the Hipster Nativity Set, but to me, it is a fun parody of the classic nativity scene that oddly, puts a smile on our faces> The best part is, no religion is being poked fun at; it is just the classic, updated to today’s – specifically 2016 – context. So what do 2016’s context has? Well, according to Modern Nativity, everyone’s in their proudest, modern getups with Joseph sporting a man bun, dressed in a denim shirt, taking a wefie with baby Jesus and Mary, who happens to be holding a to-go coffee. And then there’s of course, the three wise men, who probably used Google Maps to find their way to the new born, but instead of walking, they have arrived in their Segways, each armed with a gift for the baby brought from Amazon. Continue reading Nativity Scene In Modern Context Features Hipsters, Segways And Welfie

Square Enix Takes Deadpool To The Next Level Of Sophistication

Square Enix Play Arts Kai series takes popular figures and offers its own, well, how do we say? Edgy look? Like, with a dose of Japanese anime/manga influence. Tetsuya Nomura’s take on Batman answered the question: “what if Batman is born out of Japanese anime?” The Square Enix Play Arts Kai Deadpool is the answer to the same question. While it is not nearly as ‘dark’ or anime-ish as Tetsuya Nomura’s Batman, it is nevertheless as awesome and perhaps, more sophisticated. Marvel’s Deadpool is impervious to damage and therefore needs no armor, but in this Square Enix Play Arts Kai iteration, this infamous anti-hero is all geared and all armored.
