Iron Man 3 had a veritable smorgasbord of armors, which of course means plenty of fodder for Hot Toys' 1/6-scale line of Iron Man figures. Sideshow has recently uploaded a video of the Mark XXXVIII (38 to you non-Romans) arm...

Hot Toys' Rocket Raccoon and Groot collectible set adds what may be a spoilers-y bonus

Aug 06 // Scarecroodle
The new item is a potted Groot. I'm not sure if it's supposed to reference something from his childhood as seen in a flashback or whether the character dies but is reborn from a clipping or seed or something. If it spoilers (especially if my latter supposition is correct), please don't explain the nature of the spoiler. Even if you use a spoiler tag, the way posts show on the sidebar could lead to the film being inadvertently spoiled for a possible viewer. The collectible set, which includes both Groot and Rocket Raccoon along with other accessories, is slated for a March release. [ Pre-order at Sideshow Collectibles ]

I'll be honest: I almost always wait to see Marvel movies until after they leave theaters these days. The whole movie theater experience, with its ever-increasing ticket prices, over-priced snacks, often sticky floors (or w...

SDCC 2014: Sideshow Collectibles - Hot Toys

Jul 27
// Tianxiao Ma

DO WANT: March 2014

Apr 01 // Pedro Cortes
Pedro wants...Megahouse's Potratit of Pirates Rebecca It's been a while since I've pre-ordered a Portrait of Pirates. There hasn't been a new pirate on my shelf in months and that's simply unacceptable. Good thing Megahouse put Rebecca up for order. This pink-haired gladiator is an expert in the art of evasion, so that might explain her lack of armor. Well, more than likely it was excuse to have a cute lady wearing very little, but either way she'll make a good edition to my collection!   Scarecroodle wants...Bandai's S.H. Figuarts Zero Picking a most-wanted item from a month is fairly easy when it's something that's been on your wishlist for years. Ever since Bandai's D-Arts MMX Zero was announced, I was hoping that the company would also produce a figure based on his appearance in the Mega Man Zero series... and apparently a lot of people have wanted him as well, given that he was the clear winner of a fan poll (after he been teased as a possible addition). The sculpting looks great and I expect him to look amazing when painted. This is probably one of my biggest wants this year, right next to DST's super-articulate Select Gillman / Creature from the Black Lagoon.   Tian & Martin want...Good Smile Company's Nendoroid Mako Tian Looks like I waited just the right amount of time for this. I want Nendoroid Mako! Mako is currently my favorite part of Kill la Kill because everything she does is objectively amazing. The Nendoroid version comes with pretty much all of the Mako accessories I'd want. My favorite is her beat-up-by-the-tennis-club face. It just goes to show, even if a character design isn't outrageous, you can still make a great Nendo by giving it some personality and nice accessories. Martin This is what this line was born for. Mako is practically a living Nendoroid anyway, and GSC have done a great job of outfitting her with a range of fun accessories to complement her basic design. They also completely knocked it out of the park with facial expressions. Forget the scantily-clad heroines, this is the essential Kill la Kill figure.   Chris Seto wants...Hot Toys's Metal Gear Rising Raiden I tried so hard... I've managed to hold off buying a hot toys item for some time. I even passed over their Video Game masterpiece Ada Wong (so much buyers regret over that. Esp with the markup prices) but I'm not sure if I can do it again with the Metal Gear Rising Raiden. after being burned so badly by the play arts kai figure (I got the white version from the UK limited edition of the game) I wasn't sure if I'd see a great raiden, even though the game really got me wishing for one. Lets see if hot toys can scratch my itch. don't know if I can manage another bout of disappointment.   Natalie wants...ThinkGeek's Blobfish If my pick from last month's DO WANT wasn't enough proof that I love odd-looking plushes, this month's will surely do the trick. The Blobfish plush just looks so cute yet pitiful. It makes me want to hold it, hug it, and tell the poor dear that everything will be just fine. Plus, I bet the fluffy thing is awfully fun to cuddle with. Who wouldn't want to use this big guy as a pillow whilst surfing the web? Nobody, that's who.   Jeremy wants...Transformers Masterpiece Bumblebee There's a lot of reasons to want Masterpiece Bumblebee. For starters it's the first time in decades that Takara Tomy (and likewise Hasbro) has been able to use the Volkswagen Beetle in the Transformers line do VW's changing stance on war toys. Then there's just how great this figure is turning out in its transformation and little features like extra facial expressions, something we've only really seen put to use on the Seeker jets. Then there's the addition of Spike in a fully transforming exo suit, a figure people have been wanting since the movie hit in 1986. All in all it's a great figure and already a strong contender for Transformer of the year.   Brian wants...My Plastic Heart's Dark Night Sometimes, the best choices are the smallest ones. In this case, that would happen to be myplasticheart and Lou Pimentel's newest Junior, the Dark Night ver. Based on a bigger Cranston that was in turn based on Batman's outfit, it's a little bit of comic book geekery in designer toy form. Also, come on; it's Junior, and you guys know how much I like him, right? How can I not want him?   That's it for this month. Let us know what makes your pulse race in the comments below!
