Sideshow’s new ROTJ Darth Vader. If anyone has a lot of affection for me and $250 to spare, you know what to do.
Dr. Shaw has been dumped from NECA’s Prometheus line, literally because she’s a girl.
The line’s not doing well enough to justify the investment in tooling a female figure body - so the main character of the movie is out of the budget line.
Hot Toys reveals the Iron Man Mark XLII from IRON MAN 3. They’ve made so many Iron Man variants at this point I’ve lost count.
Dr. Shaw in NECA’s PROMETHEUS line. Had to wait for series 3 cuz she’s a girrrrrrrl.
In loving memory of the now-cancelled Django Unchained line. NECA may have wussed out, but we will always have a metric pile of other, wildly inappropriate toys to look back on:
Palisades Toys “Officer Marvin Nash” from Reservoir Dogs: Relive all the fun of a Los Angeles police officer getting his ear sliced off by a dancing psychopath with this chillingly accurate sixth-scale rendition!
NECA’s Block-Style “The Gimp” set from Pulp Fiction: The anal rape of Marcellus Wallace can happen over and over again on your desk in adorably blocky style with this set of four!
NECA’s Crazy 88 “The Director” action figure from Kill Bill Vol. 1: Had enough of Quentin Tarantino’s antics? You’re not alone! This figure, based on Tarantino’s yellowface performance as a Japanese man from Kill Bill, comes with a bottle of blood for extra gory vivisection!
Hot Toys Movie Masterpiece “Hans Landa” sixth-scale figure from Inglourious Basterds: Nothing says toybox funtime like a hyper-realistic doll-sized Nazi, complete down to the last swastika, and including his Jew-hunting pipe!
But fear not, Django fans; NECA might be out of the game, but Enterbay’s Calvin Candie and Django - stickering in the multiple hundreds of dollars, of course - are still in production.
