Jeff Goldblum is a familiar face in Hollywood. For many, he is best remembered for his role in the original Jurassic Park franchise. Mostly because of the scene where he was almost shirtless and resting on a rug or something like minutes after attached by a T-Rex. For me, I always remember Goldblum as the man fly. Man, that movie was absolutely gross and so, I guess it is better to remember this Hollywood actor as the shirtless dude than remembering him as The Fly.

Unveiled last year was the largest statue of the Evangelion Unit-01, located in Shanghai. More than a year on after it was unveiled and also bagging Guinness World Records as the largest Evangelion (yes, there is such a record!), the creator of the cult alien-fighting mecha anime, Hideaki Anno, finally made a visit to check out the towering Unit-01. Yes, apparently, it is still there. So, if you in and around Shanghai, you may want to go check it out. Continue reading Creator Of Evangelion Visited The Largest EVO-01 Unit In Shanghai
You know what’s the craziest thing we see this week? Nope. Not the 2016 Presidential Election. This. A video of a life-size Iron Man Mark 43 suit that opens up in a way like it did in the movie. Seriously, it does that and apparently, this is a real-deal and not some CGI bullshit used in the movies. And also, it appeared to be officially licensed by Marvel. Called Iron Man Mark XLIII Movable Armor Version, this movie-accurate replica of the Iron Man suit was made by Shenzhen-based toy maker, The Toys Asia, and it boasts incredible details as you can see in the video below. Continue reading Wow. This Life-size Motorized Iron Man Suit Opens Up Like The Real Thing!
While others claim that this beautiful Wonder Woman Polystone Statue by Prime 1 Studio sold by Sideshow Collectibles looks like actress Gal Gadot who played Wonder Woman in Dawn of Justice (which this statue is modelled after, btw), we beg to differ, or at least, I beg to differ. However, that does not mean this statue ain’t beautiful. It is and the fact that it is a polystone statue makes it all the more impressive because we didn’t think statue made out of stone could look this hyperrealistic. Standing some 40 inches (that’s a full meter!) tall, this DC Comics collectible is moulded from polystone, a material used commonly to create scale statues like such, and coated with high-quality translucent resin that gave the statue the life-like skin effect.

we wouldn’t say Neon Genesis Evangelion was a smash when it first hit the tube, but there is no denying that there are fans out there. just how big are you are a fan of this gloomy, apocalyptic sci-fi anime that would warrant you to drop 1.836 million Yen (or about US$17,978) for a limited edition statue that stands 2 meters or 6.5 feet tall? i guess you have to be a massive fan like i was when it was aired, but obviously, i don’t have the dough. speaking of which, what are odds of having a NGE fan having that kind of money? we really don’t know. anywho, you’d be surprised who’s retailing this giant collectible; well, it’s 7-Eleven Japan and only 25 units are available, but you probably can take your time to consider this big ticket acquisition cos’ we don’t think this is going to fly of the shelves too quickly. then again, in Japan, you never can tell, can you? Continue reading You Can Buy This 6.5 Feet Tall Evangelion Statue From Japan’s 7-Eleven
no offense to the poor Gollum, but that creature is one heck an ugly bitch. despite that, it turns out to be the most lovable character throughout the big screen trilogy. well, at least he is way lovable than the other two ring-obsessed Hobbit characters, namely Bilbo and the forever-staring-into-space, hopeless emo dude, Frodo. uhmm, you know which movie we are referring to, right? in case you don’t, we are talking about The Lord Of The Rings. and the truth be told, Gollum is sort of the icon of this modern movie masterpiece and which is why this creature deserves a space in your pad. if we are on the same page here, then the good news is, you can actually bring home a life-size Gollum statue in exchange for $3000 of your monies. Continue reading The Lord Of The Rings: Life-size Gollum Statue
Pacific Rim may not be a sellout in its home turf, but with some 400 millions in worldwide box office taking thus far, some parts of the movie certainly deserve to be immortalized like what Iron Man has been doted with all this while. speaking of immortalizing, what could be more awesome than having the stars of the show (no! not Charlie Hunnam! though, we sure won’t mind a Rinko statue), specifically the nuclear-powered massive robot Gipsy Danger, cast with all its likeness, into a display statue? if you are on the same page, then you will be glad that you can pre-order this towering 20″ statue now from Sideshow Collectibles for a pretty massive $399.99, but do note that you will have to wait till May 2014 for the pre-order to be shipped.

in every fantasy sci-fi movie, there is the hero and then there’s the necessary villain, and it so happens that villain always look a whole lot cooler (not to mention their firearms), hence its memorabilia tends to look equally cool and collectable. however, i can’t say the same for TRON: Legacy, where evil CLU is no where as cool as his masked enforcer of The Grid. that’s perhaps the reason what make this limited edition Rinzler Maquette so awesome. created by Sideshow Collectibles, in partnership with Quantum Creation FX, this memorable masked enforcer is presented as a maquette that is individually painted and finished.
