Questions you may not have known you wanted answers to
I recently spoke with Zach over at Diamond Select Toys to answer some questions that I'm sure many of you have been wondering about since seeing the company's spectacular Toy Fair display. In the process, I also received bett...
It's hard to summarize what a delight it was to look over DST's NY Toy Fair 2015 booth for the first time. Just when you thought you were impressed or excited, there was something that almost blew that out of the water.
New Shapeways creation merges goats, Ghostbusters

Now in Low Definition
SDCC and WonFes may have been almost a month ago at this point, but many of its collectibles are still on our minds. Tian recently posted the top ten things he was looking forward to from these cons and, because I'm far more excitably (and exceedingly less orderly), my own highlights list is nowhere near that short.
See many of my favorites after the jump.
Roasted for about a minute too long
Funko has debuted its latest Hikari mold, the Stay Puft Marshmallow Man (Ghostbusters), with a "Burnt" deco reminiscent of the character's fate in the first film... and many of the video games.
The mold itself is a mix of cut...
We got Snake Mountain! ...kinda
The Matty Collector panel at SDCC (or "Mattypalooza") was described as featuring a lot of new Masters-related announcements and, well, little else. However, some major non-Masters news came in the form of an announcement that...
Desire to own is independent of ability to own
If you're a sci-fi fan, you should really know about QMx (Quantum Mechanix). Their entire existence is like a love letter to all of my favorite sci-fi TV franchises. At SDCC this year, the marquee features were two large scal...
It's that time again!
The countdown to SDCC is now underway! Funko has just announced their first batch of SDCC exclusives. If you recall last year, you know that they will have plenty of exclusives to offer.

Too much awesome at once?

The Stay Puft vinyl bank (vinyl? C...
Good to have around the next time you think your toaster has moved
Back in January, we stumbled upon images of Funko's Pop! Ghostbusters figures, but at the time one of the teammates was missing. Winston Zeddemore, the fourth Ghostbuster (the one who answered a 'help wanted' ad), will be inc...
There will be new Pop! figures from beloved titles both old and new

A sad and happy day
Matty Collector's Mattypalooza panel at NYCC 2013 was a mix of good, great, and bad news. While Mattel unveiled Flogg (New Adventures of He-Man) and Extendar at the con, they also officially confirmed that the DC Universe umbrella will finally close next year with the release of the last few figures.
Details after the jump.
Wait, has it really been thirty years?
Matty Collector had a few Ghostbusters items on display at NYCC, including prop replicas for the Neutrino Wand (previously seen at SDCC) and Ghost Trap. More exciting, however, may be the news that Matty Collector will be a s...
Mattel: Now serving crow pie to anybody who claimed the sub/pre-order panic was just a marketing gimmick

Check your local stores for some big deals
If you've been to some figure forums you might have noticed a bit of drama revolving around Matty Collector exclusives these past few weeks. Aside from the usual drama I mean. It has a lot to do with a large number of MattyCo...
Foaming at the mouth to see an actual prototype

And yet all I want from Matty for Christmas is a Sorceress
