New IRON MAN 3 Action Figure Images Preview Armor Details

by     Posted 1 year, 244 days ago

A batch of new images of some upcoming action figures for Marvel’s Iron Man 3 have landed online.  Though they’re not super clear, these images may hint at what fans can expect from the Shane Black-directed film.  In the film’s first trailer, we saw Tony Stark’s Malibu home being destroyed and Iron Man dropping into the water like a ton of bricks.  Marvel’s Kevin Feige has made no secret of the fact that they want to get Tony metaphorically “back in the cave” from the first film with this sequel, and armor seen on these action figures seems to suggest that Tony Stark will find himself with limited resources following the aforementioned attack.  We also get a look at what could be Tony’s new ride in the form of a toy car.

Geek Gifts: Hot Toys THE AMAZING SPIDER-MAN and ALIENS VS. PREDATOR: REQUIEM Figures

by     Posted 2 years, 53 days ago

Some pretty damn cool-looking collectible figures are now on sale for The Amazing Spider-Man and Aliens vs. Predator: Requiem, and we’ve got a batch of images from both.  These figures come from Hot Toys, the same company that put out that incredibly life-like Joker collectible from The Dark Knight and they also did Loki from The Avengers.  There’s really not much to the Spidey collectible besides some webshooting and crouched stances, but the Wolf Predator Polystone Statue is pretty neat.  The terrifying hunter carries a trophy from his prey in one image, and shows off his deadly chompers in another.

If you missed our earlier post about the new toys from The Avengers (which may or may not reveal the movie’s villain), then you wouldn’t know that the 109th annual American International Toy Fair starts rolling next week. We thought we’d get this party started with a few new toys from The Dark Knight Rises. They may not be as cute as the vinyl dolls we posted or as wacky as the Bobble Heads, but they do have one ace up their sleeve: the Batwing (Mattel calls it “The Bat”). There are copious amounts of Batwing goodies here, but if you want to see what your own hand-held model would look like, hit the jump.

The 109th annual American International Toy Fair kicks off next Monday in New York, so you can expect to see a lot of movie-related paraphernalia here. Right off the bat we’ve got some images of a “skill & strategy” game tie-in for The Avengers. It features four of our favorite heroes battling against a familiar enemy (hint: not Tom Hiddleston’s Loki). To see just who that enemy is, you’ll have to hit the jump. While it may not prove anything as far as Joss Whedon’s The Avengers plot line is concerned, this merchandise coupled with last weekend’s Super Bowl ad makes for a compelling case. The film stars Robert Downey Jr., Chris Hemsworth, Chris Evans, Samuel L. Jackson, Scarlett Johansson, Mark Ruffalo and Jeremy Renner. The Avengers opens in IMAX 3D on May 4th.

With New York City Toy Fair starting in less than two weeks, the movie studios are starting to announce what will be on display at the convention.  If you’re a toy collector, it’s Christmas, because you get to see almost everything that will be arriving over the course of the year.  And for movie fans, it’s also great, as you get first looks at the costumes and gadgets that have been under wraps during the entire production.  While the studios are usually great at keeping everything under wraps, Toy Fair offers the fans a lot of answers.

Anyway, Warner Bros. Consumer Products just sent over a number of images of some of their Hobbit and Dark Knight Rises items that will be on display.  While we posted some of the items last night, we’ve now got high resolution looks at the Funko line of Wacky Wobler’s and Pop Heroes, and we’ve also got a Dark Knight Chess Set, Thinkway Toys U-Command Batpod, and The Noble Collection’s The One Ring 10k Solid Gold Edition.  Hit the jump for the images.

dark-knight-rises-toy-image

We have seen a couple previews for toys from The Dark Knight Rises.  We are currently in the business of passing along all things Batman, so tonight we have a few more looks at the toys that will be unveiled at the Nuremburg Toy Fair.  Most notable to this unsophisticated toyman is the vinyl pop version of Bane, easily the most adorable likeness of a masked psychopath I’ve ever seen.  There is a vinyl Catwoman to match (sensible given her costume), along with your basic Batman action figure accompanied by a very interesting contraption.

Christian Bale, Anne Hathaway, Tom Hardy, Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Marion Cotillard, Gary Oldman, Morgan Freeman, and Michael Caine star in the final entry of Christopher Nolan‘s Batman trilogy.  The Dark Knight Rises opens on July 20.  See the images after the break.
