FOX Decides The Predator Movie is Fun

FOX The Predator final movie trailer
There are two titles in the realm of Scifi that get fans excited for future projects, but continually roll out tedious exercises in MORE of the same with zero charisma. Sadly, those titles are Aliens and Predator. News of a movie simply titled The Predator helmed by Shane Black, who is known for fantastically entertaining movies like Kiss Kiss, Bang Bang and The Nice Guys, went a long way to rid memories of Aliens vs Predator and the like from people's brains, but there are still many skeptics. The initial synopsis and trailers were...unconvincing. Now, with 2 weeks til showtime, FOX has changed direction a full 180 degrees and presents us with a trailer that makes the new film look extremely fun!!

World War Z Video Game Looking to Take a Bite Out of the Competition

World War Z Video Game
In a world where our geekiest desires are translated into plastics, fashion and digital alternate realities, it's easy to miss a thing or two. Such is the case with the WORLD WAR Z video game!! I blame society. World War Z has been one of my go-to zombie movies for more than a minute, with plenty of tension, a fast moving story and the dynamics of those zombie hordes to keep me locked in every time. Translate that into a video game and I'm ALL IN!! Let's take a look at what we know so far about the game and how, exactly, they expect us to kill 300 approaching zombies armed only with a semi-automatic and dreams of movie sequels...

Standing at approximately 18 inches tall, The Nun doll might just be as scary as the film. Her bright, piercing eyes stare directly into your soul and she features a film-accurate habit complete with a tunic, cowl, and veil.

Hasbro Marvel Marvel vs Capcom Infinite Gamerverse Action Figures Black Widow vs Street Fighter's Ryu 006
It's been some time since Hasbro premiered their Marvel Gamerverse 3.75 inch action figure line with Iron Man vs Mega Man X, which came as an awesome surprise for toy fans in general and a mind blowing product drop for longtime Capcom Vs fans. With the popularity of Twitch on the rise and celebrity gamers in the press daily, it should come as no surprise that toy companies would be paying more attention to video game properties, especially when they already own a license for half the characters!

The Witches are Back in the Suspiria 2018 Trailer

Amazon Studios Suspiria 2018 film stills 001
Dance can enrapture or enslave. In one instant, seductive...the next, empowering...the next, heartbreaking, all without uttering a word or explaining a position. The music drives the movement but the movement expresses the will of the performer. In a way, a highly trained dancer is capable of a sort of witchcraft, and someone who masters their movements knows they can inspire or horrify the watcher, leading their emotions where ever they like. We can only hope the Suspiria remake will capture even a small semblance of that power on film...

The Big Bang Theory to End in 2019

Entertainment Earth Bif Bang Pow Big Bang Theory Toys
The most annoying question I've ever been asked was "Why do you think Big Bang Theory is funny"? Like this is the moment i'm going to explain why my brain reacted to certain things in any given episode and then justify why that reaction was the "right" one. Can't we just laugh at things? No? Damn, you're harsh. Love it or hate it, Big Bang Theory has outlived most of our favorite geeky TV fair (except for The Simpsons, which is immortal. There can be only one.) But all good laugh tracks must one day come to an end...

Diamond Select Fulfills Your Iron Giant Dreams

Diamond Select Iron Giant 10 inch Bust
I feel like most companies are always looking for new opportunities to get Iron Giant collectibles into the hands of under-served fans worldwide, and though we are slowly crawling toward that "one of everything has been made" point, you'll notice those things made even recently are difficult to get, which is reflected in their secondary market price. Diamond Select, ever with their ear to the ground, are always checking things off of people's wishlists as they prove time and again that they are fans of all the things we are fans of as well, so it should come as no surprise that they've attempted to give our heroic metal buddy some love...and today is no different!

Transformers Bumblebee Movie Toys Checklist **UPDATED 8/29

Hasbro Transformers Bumblebee Movie Toys
If you are a die hard Transformers fan, you've probably had a good look at all there is to see from Hasbro's Bumblebee movie toy line. For me, it's alllll new! And we're willing to bet it's new to a lot of you as well. That being the case, let's check out the newest toys hitting retail any day now, most of which featuring our favorite, outgoing yellow autobot!

We'll add to this as more images come our way, but here's what we've got for now...

The overall gimmick is "Energon Igniters" which works with a semi translucent energon block that comes with most figures. You pop the block into the vehicle and it acts as an "engine" for the car, allowing it to take off.  Several categories will be available. We've listed them small to large...

Hasbro Show Off their First Power Rangers Action Figure

Hasbro Power Rangers Action Figures
It's easy to forget that Hasbro are now the toy masters of Saban's Power Rangers when you have Star Wars, Marvel Comics and Movies, Transformers and all the other toy lines they crank out at a brisk pace to cloud your mind and devour your wallet. In truth, you really should be excited for the Power Rangers least if you are an adult collector! You see, in the past, the PR toy line was approached like any popular kid's toy line in that it was packed with action features and gimmicks tying into the roleplay items, with everything screaming BUY IT ALL!! This is fine and good and it was more than a little successful for many years, but the underserved die-hard fans were out there,  growing older and forced to look to other companies to get their adult collector fix. Where was the unified scale? One size for humans, one for monsters, at the very least, would have gotten collectors excited. Beyond that, we've got likenesses to consider and articulation which, for a show featuring kids who do martial arts, should be top notch. Consequently, these happen to be the things Hasbro has been fine tuning in their Marvel Legends line and now, the transference will be something fantastic to watch...

WETA Mini Epics Vinyl Figures Battle Angel Alita
With an explosion of excited fans and a generous serving of subversive humour, Weta Workshop unveiled its first foray into the world of pop culture vinyls at San Diego Comic-Con 2017. The response to our merry band of Middle-earthlings – Frodo Baggins, Gollum, Gimli, Moria Orc and Uruk-hai Berserker – was immediate: WE WANT MORE MINI EPICS!

Which got us here at the Workshop thinking. What other EPIC worlds could we deliver to film fans and collectors of cool stuff across the globe?

Let’s start with the basics, we said.  We’re tackling the A-team: Apes, Aliens, and Angels! We’ve grown the MINI EPICS family to include not only more figures from The Lord of the Rings, but your favourite characters from Planet of the Apes, District 9, and Alita: Battle Angel – each figure as highly stylised as the next.

Help Teachers to Help Our Kids with TEACHER'S AIDE

Teacher's Aide Logo
For 2 to 7 hours a day, we put our children in the hands of trained professionals who would teach them all manor of subjects. From world history, which shows them how far we have come... and how far we have left to go, to math and science, with which they can unravel the very mysteries of the universe. We rely on special individuals...teachers...for safety, guidance and a strength of character we hope will be reflected back in our children's eyes. Sadly, shouldering all of these responsibilities does not pay the king's wage you might expect. Those left to mold the minds that will carve out the future of this nation often can not meet their own basic needs, and certainly can not afford to endow entire classes with supplies for special projects...or any projects at all. Creativity falls by the wayside. Imagination, stifled. This stands for both student and educational professional. Something must be done.

Prepare Your Children for the Fartist Club!

In a world where "poo" is trending in the toy industry, it was only a matter of time til someone explored the "other" elements that escape from the mysterious realm known as "the butt". Toys that make fart noises are not a new occurrence on the retail shelves, so I'd imagine the thought from creators is "when kids stop laughing at the sound, we'll stop making them!" Today, we visit with Eolo, a company that's completely new to me, and check out their line of gross-out, Garbage Pail Kids-esque toys that are apparently so good at what they do, they are called Fartists!

We are back into the Funko news with more on the Horror front, this time with more of a Scifi flavor as we take on the hunt for The Predator! Or is it hunting alongside The Predator? Since one is the Fugitive and one, The Assassin, can we assume this is a battle between aliens and we'd best not get into the middle of things?? From the looks of the trailer, the Fugitive crashes to earth and the Assassin comes to get him. Whoever wins...WE LOSE!! sorry..sorry...I didn't mean to remind you of that movie...

Funko 5 Star Horror Figures Kiddify Freddy, Jason & More

Funko 5 Star Horror Figures Nightmare on Elm Street Freddy Krueger

They've fought demons with Hellboy, swatted at tentacles with any number of Anime heroes and walked the darkened streets with our favorite horror icons. Now, their new 5 Star figure line dives back into cinematic horror's greatest moments, celebrating the fiends we love to see go to work!

Ya's funny, but NECA just started selling toys at Target and one location in particular pulled all their horror figures after a mom complained her son wanted a Chucky figure. Has this ever happened with any of the Funko Pop horror figures, I wonder? Probably not! Stand your ground, Target! But I digress...

Cybertronic Spree Get Drunk and Sing Transformers Theme Song
There are many ways to celebrate our beloved, geeky past. If you are like me, you hunt for toys which trigger a happy place in the brain when eyes meet plastic. Some rewatch cartoons regularly.

Fans of Transformers can celebrate year round so long as Hasbro keeps revisiting those classic robot designs (and, as of late, crank out reproductions of the G1 toys) and metal rockers The Cybertronic Spree keep making the world a more awesome place with their energon-fueled performances.

McFarlane Offers a Stranger Things Dart Creature for Every Home

McFarlane Toys Stranger Things Squeezable Dart
Stranger Things season 2 provided us with many memorable moments, but one section in particular played on our love of monsters and fondness for a certain film about creatures that don't like bright light and multiply when they get wet. Who doesn't love a story about a boy and his (potentially) man eating monster? When McFarlane looked for opportunities to create collectibles from this extremely nostalgic universe, they didn't have to look much further than DART!
