by     Posted 1 year, 364 days ago


Toymaker NECA has revealed the first images of their upcoming Aliens action figures as well as a 1:1 replica of the gravity gun from the videogame Half-Life.  The Aliens figures include Hicks (Michael Biehn), Hudson (Bill Paxton), and an alien warrior.  The Hicks and Hudson figures are nearly 7″ tall and feature over 30 points of articulation.  Hicks and Hudson also come with multiple heads, but why you would want to use anything other than the “Game over, man!  Game over!”-head is beyond me.  As for the alien warrior, it’s 9″ tall and has over 30 points of articulation including a bendable tail, hinged jaw, and sliding inner mouth.  It’s perfect for destroying tiny Lance Henriksen.

As for the gravity-gun replica, it’s currently in development, and the image NECA has released is a model, not the final version.  However, it should still do a good job of taking out head-crabs.  Hit the jump to check out images of the toys.  The figures and the replica are due out in the spring.

Geek Gifts: IRON MAN 2 Tony Stark Mark V Briefcase Replica

by     Posted 4 years, 73 days ago


Have you ever been pinned down by an angry Russian supervillain at a racetrack and thought, “Man, I really wish I had a portable suit of armor to defend myself,”?  Now you can (kind of)!  Big Bad Toy Store is selling the briefcase that held Tony Stark’s popular Mark V Iron Man armor.  The briefcase that’s on sale doesn’t actually have the armor since that technology doesn’t exist, but the briefcase itself is fully functional so it will still hold pens and important business papers, which is almost as good.  At every business meeting, you could bring this bad boy with you, throw it on the conference table, and get all your co-workers wondering, “Oh, does he have the armor or is it just that stupid freaking laptop again?”  The answer will always be the stupid laptop, but it’s fun to keep people guessing.  The replica costs $459.99 and is limited to 1,000 pieces so pre-order yours today!
