Toy Fair 2022: Four Horsemen's Mythic Legions March On

Toy Fair 2022 Four Horsemen Mythic Legions Action Figures 05

Since this year's Toy Fair 2022 coverage has been scooped up from points all over the planet, it's only fitting that we caught up with The Four Horsemen at Zolocon in Buck's County, PA, taking place in a decommissioned naval testing facility called "The Fuge"! Nestled up against that very centrifuge at the heart of this mamoth facility, the mighty mighty 4H dished out their highly sought after Mythic Legions action figures to a rabid crowd of fans who qued up the second the doors opened. After grabbing a ghostly soldier that glows in the dark and a skeleton warrior for my own plastic legions at home, I was introduced to the newest monsters and medieval men who are sure to have collectors working their fingers together in a Mr.Burns-like fashion.

IDW Announces Todd McFarlane’s Spider-Man Artist’s Edition

IDW Todd McFarlane’s Spider-Man Artist’s Edition
In September, IDW will celebrate the dynamic artwork and storytelling of industry icon Todd McFarlane with the addition of Todd McFarlane’s Spider-Man Artist’s Edition to its multiple Eisner Award–winning line. Experience one of the most acclaimed runs in Spider-Man history like never before!

Todd McFarlane’s gorgeous work on Spider-Man was nothing less than groundbreaking. His intense version of the web-slinging wallcrawler took the character to new heights, instilling in the character a new sense of energy and vitality—first in The Amazing Spider-Man, written by David Michelinie, and then in a spin-off series, with both art and story by McFarlane himself. The impact that his dynamic artwork has had on the comics industry—on his legions of fans and the artists who have been inspired by and have emulated him—is truly immeasurable.

Arrow Video US - April Release Schedule with Robocop, 12 Monkeys & More

Arrow Video Robocop Steelbook 4K Blu-ray
This April, Arrow keeps the hits coming for cinema enthusiasts. This month's lineup includes six titles from all over the world, including two brand-new box sets and three 4K UHD upgrades.

The 8 Diagram Pole Fighter, from legendary Shaw Brothers' director Lau Kar-leung, makes its American Blu-ray debut on April 5. General Yeung Yip and his sons are ambushed and brutally attacked Golden Beach. The attack leaves Yip and all but two of his sons killed or captured. One son, Yeung Chiu (Alexander Fu Sheng), returns home to his mother and sisters. The other son, Yeung Dak (Gordon Liu), goes to live in a monastery where he develops the eight diagram pole fighting technique. After one of their sisters is captured, Dak is driven with anger to return home and exact his revenge. The 8 Diagram Pole Fighter is widely recognized as Kar-leung's masterpiece and was one of the last great martial arts epics to be released by the famous Shaw Brothers studio. However, the film is also remembered for the great tragedy that struck during filming. Star Fu Sheng tragically died in a car accident midway through production. As a result, Kar-leung reworked the final half of the script, turning it into the ultimate action spectacular as a tribute to his young star. This Arrow release features a brand-new 2K restoration from the original camera negative and comes loaded with bonus content.

UNCHARTED Available on Digital April 26 and Blu-Ray May 10

THE BATMAN: Original Motion Picture Soundtrack 3XLP

Mondo THE BATMAN Original Motion Picture Soundtrack 3XLP 01

This week, we are excited to continue our ongoing DC soundtrack series with one of the most anticipated scores of the year: Michael Giacchino's masterful new score to THE BATMAN. Nearly two hours of music, in which Giacchino flexes his prowess - after decades and nearly two dozen takes on the character and the music of his world, it should be impossible to tackle the world's greatest detective with something fresh and iconic. But here we stand, and the soundtrack to THE BATMAN is as essential as the film itself.
