So you own the Han Solo in carbonite desk.  It’s cool, but it’s starting to feel a little too small, and it’s entirely too practical.  You’d like a Han in carbonite that’s truly life-size, one that takes up a massive amount of space with no secondary purpose.  Great news!  You can now own a life-size figure of Han in carbonite for just $7000 (some assembly required).

Hot Toys has unveiled another Man of Steel collectible, this time for Michael Shannon’s General Zod.  The figure sports a rather odd grin, but otherwise shows off Zod’s impressive armor and accessories—complete with facial scar.  Hot Toys’ Jor-El figure was nice and all, but if you’d like to display the film’s baddie then this Zod sixth-scale collectible should fill that void.  The figure is expected to ship April 2014 and will run you $239.99.  Hit the jump for a closer look or click here to pre-order on Sideshow Collectibles.

Geek Gifts: PACIFIC RIM Gipsy Danger Sideshow Collectible Statue

With the prospect of Guillermo del Toro tackling “robots vs. monsters” on a massive scale with Pacific Rim also came the promise of some really cool toys based on del Toro’s meticulous designs.  Those toys are now starting to trickle out, and Sideshow Collectibles has started the pre-order for an intricate statue of the Gipsy Danger jaeger.  At $399.99 the statue isn’t particularly cheap, but it is a very faithfully crafted piece of art, complete with battle scars and overall wear-and-tear, which is a really nice touch.  This is hopefully the first of many Pacific Rim collectibles headed our way over the next couple of years.

With Pacific Rim opening this weekend, I recently landed an exclusive interview with Guillermo del Toro.  During the interview he talked about the early test screenings, how he didn’t want the movie to look like a sleek car commercial (he jokingly calls his visual style “goth tech”), collaborating with ILM to create the amazing monster vs. robot fights, making sure the action is clear and believable, why you should see it in IMAX 3D, the Sideshow Collectible Pacific Rim toys, and so much more.  Hit the jump for what he had to say and make sure to see Pac Rim in IMAX 3D this weekend.  It’s definitely worth the extra charge.

In addition, if you missed del Toro’s updates on Haunted Mansion, Justice League Dark, The Strain, Crimson Peak, and Hellboy 3, just click the links.

Fans are understandably excited as the release of Marvel’s Iron Man 3 is now only a few short days away, but in case the Shane Black-directed sequel isn’t enough to appease your fandom, another Iron Man-related product is being made available—though it comes with quite the hefty price tag.  Sideshow Collectibles has unveiled a life-size Iron Man Mark 42 collectible, which is basically a human-sized action figure.  The piece stands over seven feet tall and weighs over 100 lbs.  Moreover, it comes complete with LED light up eyes, arc reactor, palm, and display base.  The figure will run you $8499.99, and I can think of plenty of other causes worthy of that kind of money, but the figure is available for purchase nevertheless.  Hit the jump for more info and some images of the collectible.
