  1. Uh... Super7 has had the Nosferatu "license" for years. They've made at least a half dozen Nosferatu ReAction figures. This is probably teasing an Ultimate.
  2. Looks really good, but will need to see more to really get too excited about it.
  3. Putting aside likeness issues and Batman's giant belt/underwear that makes him look like he's wearing a diaper... There are some really odd just blatantly wrong things on these. Like how do they screw up Robin's cape? This isn't some comic or short lived thing where you can kinda get stuff wrong. There is tons of reference material on this. Very odd.
  4. It's hard to tell if the lighting in those photos are washing everything out (and making the TMNT so bright) or if that's truly how they look. Hopefully everything is a bit more muted in person. I'm kinda shocked no one else has tried Beetlejuice before now.
  5. Has any of McFarlane's stuff been hard to find? I don't buy any of his DC stuff cause it's all weird "comic vampire hunter ventriloquist Batman" or whatever, but I see it everywhere. Outside of maybe some oddball variants, it certainly seems like distribution has been good.
  6. Eh... The entire original movie is filled with social/political crap. Literally, EVERY Troma movie is. And the plot of the Toxic Avenger is also literally about male toxicity. That's the entire plot. Revenge on toxic males with... Toxic waste. Sometimes people miss the messages in Troma films because they're often done with such crude tactics, but they're covered in them. That said, nothing about this remake seems to make sense. Maybe it'll be good, here's hoping, lotta talent involved but it certainly feels like it's going to stray far away from the Toxie I know and love and there's no bigger Toxie fan than me. Is Dinklage going to grow? Is Melvin going to be a little person and that's why he's singled out? It's all a little baffling. I almost wonder if they're going to go in an entirely different direction and Dinklage is going to be a relatively normal person but he turns into some kind of hideous monster, but less like Toxie and more like some kinda giant CGI thing with tentacles or something. Seems to be leaning more into the horror aspect than what Toxie became. But again, all just speculation at this point. Hopefully it gets Troma enough cash and clout to finally make Toxic Avenger 5.
  7. So it should be twice the price of the firehouse, not 5x. FWIW, I don't care. I'm sure Playmobil will get what they want out of it. But it seems a bit needlessly big and pricey for what it is. Everyone all crammed up inside there. The price is bonkers, anyway you slice it. Playmobil does good stuff, but I'm not seeing the value here even if it's a really large piece. But to each his own.
  8. Wasn't his whole pitch with this line that Hasbro was NEVER going to make a 6 inch line? I seem to recall a lot of chest puffing in regards to that. Of course, before this was even past the early stages Hasbro already had a 6 inch line in stores (well sorta) and the entire focus of this line had to be shifted to being a compatible line, moreso than a replacement. Too much of the Joe community can be toxic, moreso than any of the other communities, which all have certain levels of toxicity in them. That said, I'm all in for Sarge.
  9. Batcave looks fun, especially if they can nail that $30 price point. Would be great for some of my other displays. The figures don't look that good to me. Not terrible, but not great even at $15. Might change my mind seeing them in person, though. As much as I love the 66 show, I think it's hard to capture in toy form. If you go too literal, things end up looking gangly and wonky like Mattel, but if you try to beef things up like McFarlane has here, it still doesn't look right. I think it needs to be reinterpreted on some level, but finding that sweet spot is difficult. I actually really liked the Funko 3 inch line, as it seemed to do that well... But we never got that darn second wave with the main villains. Blah.
  10. Considering how good Frank and the Mummy look, kinda odd to see this face sculpt so off. Hopefully the other heads are better.
  11. Playmobil is always pricey, but this pricetag is nuts. The Ghostbusters Firehouse was at least this big and was like $100. I wouldn't pay more than $150 for an item like this, which is where most collectors top out at. You'd have to be both a super hardcore Trek collector and a super hardcore Playmobil collector to fork down that kinda cash. But if you're just one or the other, it's not going to get you to bite. And if you're even remotely casual, no dice. Shame too, could be a fun set for my Minimates.
  12. You're not alone! I've been giving the AT some love over at Infinite Hollywood.
  13. Well, WSJ sort of leaked this one out. It's been confirmed as official. I've got the picture and opinions over at the usual: Nickelodeon's new TMNT first image It's not perfect, and there's one potentially controversial change (but it's unconfirmed at the moment) and generally some positive stuff going on. Turtle fans should check it out.
  14. When I was a kid, Hammerhead was arguably my favorite Kenner Star Wars toy. Sure, Yoda was my favorite character in the Star Wars films, but Hammerhead? He was uber cool. What was he doing in that Cantina? Sculpt: In the original Star Wars film, we don't actually see most of Hammerhead's body. In fact Momaw's total on-screen appearance is far less than a minute. Nadon's longest appearance is actually in the Richard Pryor "Star Wars Bar" comedy sketch, in which Hammerhead laments that he's in love. With whom, we never find out. Because we never see much of the costume in the film and the Star Wars Bar appearance shows only bits of the costume, we're left with concept art and Kenner's first take on the figure as the only real reference for the guy. Kenner depicted him as scrawny, almost sickly thin, but Sideshow has definitely bulked him up a bit. Hasbro's recent figures have had Momaw with about this same sort of physique, so by all accounts, Sideshow has done a good job. Well I'm sure Lucas has filled us in, but when I was kid, Hammerhead was there to sell drugs. Now that's what I call "Scum and Villainy"! And now Sideshow's new 12 inch Hammerhead is back and well, as good as ever. Paint: At this kind of pricetag you might expect a lot of paint applications, however that is not the case here. Most of the paintwork is on the head, which has some good detail painting and a fair amount of wash. It's not necessarily the grandest paint I've ever seen, but it does the character justice. Articulation: This figure features Sideshow's aforementioned Prometheus body with 30+ points of articulation. I'm not going to sit here and count them all or label them all. It's pretty suffice to say that you can get this guy into a ton of poses and he's vastly more articulated than 99% of the 6 inch and under figures on the market today. My one complaint would be that the figure is generally pretty loose. Not flop around loose, but looser than I'd like. His leg can not stand straight out for a kick, as an example. His knees are ratcheted, which is a nice addition. Unfortunately, his feet are not ratcheted at the ball joints in his ankles and that seems like a real missed opportunity. So check out the full review of Hammerhead, err, Momaw in all his Scum and Villainy self with more photos and the final score! Infinite Hollywood: Sideshow Momaw Nadon (Hammerhead) Review Thanks for reading, if you do.
  15. Ultraman made his television debut on July 17, 1966. For over 30 years Bandai has been making Ultraman figures. Mostly of the limited articulation, vinyl variety. This year they have created a new line, to compliment their popular S.H. Figurarts lines and to compete with other lines like Revoltech, called Ultra-Act. Ultraman, as he appeared in the most recent film is, fittingly, the first figure in this line. I have the complete review with nearly 40 photos up today as part of our Ultraman Week celebration at Infinite Hollywood. Infinite Hollywood: Ultra-Act Ultraman Review Thanks for taking a look! SHUWATCH!
