McFarlane's Movie Maniacs Adds More Non-Maniacs

McFarlane Movie Maniacs Logo
Yes, folks, the tears are real. Some years back, McFarlane Toys announced a relaunch of their legendary Movie Maniacs action figure line. The fact that the announcement came with no hint of a release schedule or a nudge toward character selection didn't bother die-hard fans much, as the sight of that logo on the walls of their Toy Fair booth alone was enough to generate excitement. Flash forward to 2023 and McFarlane proudly announces their first wave of modern Movie Maniacs, kicking things off with.... Bugs Bunny, Harry Potter, The Wicked Witch of the West, and the genuinely terrifying ....Ted Lasso. McFarlane clarified that rather than returning to the depths to explore horror's most fiendish fiends, their new Movie Maniacs would celebrate 100 years of Warner Brother's movie icons. So...why the moniker "Maniacs"? I'm gonna guess the answer is "Why not?"

Go Gamorrean Green for St. Patrick’s Day!

Gentle Giant Star Wars The Book of Boba Fett Gamorrean Guard Mini Bust 001

It’s time to go green! Once again, St. Patrick’s Day is upon us, a day for celebration of Irish culture, most visibly by the wearing of the green! In honor of St. Patrick’s Day, Gentle Giant LTD is proud to introduce their newest 1/6 Scale Star Wars mini-bust, the green-skinned Gamorrean Guard!

When Boba Fett took over the criminal empire of Jabba the Hutt, deposing Bib Fortuna, he inherited the loyalty of two Gamorreans, who acted as bodyguards to the new daimyo of Mos Espa. Based on the guards’ appearance in Star Wars: The Book of Boba Fett, this all-new mini-bust stands approximately 6 inches tall and depicts one of the porcine warriors in a fighting stance, with his dagger at his waist.

WORLD PREMIERE: The Loyal Subjects Goes Bughunting with Starship Troopers

Loyal Subjects Starship Troopers Action Figures
I'd convinced my father to go to the movies with the promise of two things. 1. A brand new theater with "stadium seating" and 2. possible aliens and things blowing up in 5 minute intervals. What we got was an oddball scifi war story with a romantic underbelly akin to Robotech and interwoven propaganda film reels spelling out clearly what our enemy was capable of on an extreme level. WHO was the enemy you ask? MASSIVE INSECTS from alien worlds fully willing to wipe us out of existence with an intelligence far beyond your average Xenomorph. It was was was awesome.
