As menacing as Ultron is in the trailers for Marvel’s Avengers sequel, in bobblehead form the homicidal robot can only scare up an “Awwwwwww.”
He joins adorable big-eyed, 3.75-inch versions of Iron Man XLIII, Captain America, Thor, Iron Legion and Ultron Sentry in Hot Toys’ newly unveiled Avengers: Age of Ultron Cosbaby Series 1. However, Ultron Prime is available only in the Collectors Set. More figures are promised in later releases (keep your fingers crossed for Quicksilver and Scarlet Witch).
Despite some initial concerns among fans, it turns out that Funko will release a Black Widow figure as part of its previously announced Avengers: Age of Ultron Pop! Vinyl series.
Arriving in May, with new batons in hand, Natasha joins Iron Man, Captain America, Thor, Hulk, Hawkeye, Vision and Ultron (plus the Hulkbuster offered exclusively through the new Marvel Collector Corps). There’s still no sign of Quicksilver and Scarlet Witch, however.
If you’ve been wishing that Jake, Finn and the rest of the Adventure Time crew would make the leap to LEGO, this may be your chance.
Brick enthusiast aBetterMonkey has submitted a set of 15 brick-built Adventure Time figures to LEGO ideas, where projects that receive 10,000 votes qualify for review and a chance to be transformed into an official LEGO product.
Less than a week after debuting the new Hulk, Hot Toys has revealed details of its 1/6th-scale Avengers: Age of Ultron Hulkbuster collectible figure.
Heralded at Toy Soul 2014 with a 10-foot statue, the movie-accurate figure stands nearly 21 inches tall, and features a Mark XLIII bust inside the Hulkbuster, with LED light-up eyes and arc reactor on the chest. The metallic red, gold and silver armor has a weathering effect, and more than 16 LED light-up areas located in the eyes, chest, repulsor palms, back and legs.
In the post-Guardians of the Galaxy licensing onslaught, we’ve seen a dancing Groot bobblehead, a Baby Groot that actually dances to “I Want You Back,” a “movie-accurate” Little Groot and an absolutely terrified Potted Groot, and that’s only for starters. But now we have something a little different, and a little more eco-friendly.
Entertainment Earth is accepting preorders for a dancing Baby Groot solar-powered bobble head that not only wiggles his little body but never requires batteries. Alas, it’s not accompanied by the sounds of the Jackson 5, so you’ll have to hum the tune yourself:
Japanese collectibles manufacturer Good Smile Company has debuted Michelangelo, the second in a series of Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles statues inspired by the art of Eisner-winning illustrator James Jean. Leonardo was revealed in October.
Standing about 8.7 inches tall, the Michelangelo statue will connect with the other three to create a larger diorama. It’s set for release in July for $129.99.
Whether you’re a fan of Frank Miller’s short-eared Batman or Kelley Jones’ long-eared one, Sideshow Collectibles’ Gotham Knight 1/6th-scale figure probably has the cowl you’re looking for.
You see, the collectible comes with three cowls — long ears, average-size ears and little nubs — as well as interchangeable facial expressions (none of which is a smile, you’ll note). In addition to the tailored black-and-gray suit and cape, the fully articulated figure also comes with Batarangs, a grappling hook gun and — because he’s Batman — a Kryptonite ring for … y’know, just in case.
Last year Ripley’s imagined Holy Kitten from Lumberjanes scored her own T-shirt, and now she’s received a serious upgrade: a talking plush.
Designed by Lumberjanes artist Brooke Allen, it’s WeLoveFine‘s first plush collaboration with BOOM! Studios. You can listen to Holy Kitten’s two sounds — meow and an angelic choir — below.
Hot Toys has unveiled its Avengers: Age of Ultron 1/6th-scale Hulk figure, which features a new head sculptures to reflect changes to the characters design in the upcoming Marvel Studios sequel.
The Hulk Deluxe Collectible Set boasts two newly developed angry and screaming head sculpts with rolling eyeballs, a specially painted muscular body with more than 20 points of articulation, an interchangeable non-articulated “Hulk smash” pose upper body, and two pairs of interchangeable palms.
While some people are satisfied to let their pricey high-end action figures gather dust, photographer Edy Hardjo puts his to good use, creating a frequently hilarious (and occasionally not exactly work-safe) glimpse into the everyday lives of superheroes.
On his Instagram and Facebook pages, Hardjo reveals Avengers hazing rituals, hairstyle mishaps, campfire memories, juvenile pranks, and a reminder of why you don’t want to ride in an elevator with Ghost Rider.
For a character who exuded such coolness in Star Wars: The Empire Strikes Back, the once-mysterious Boba Fett suffered such a ludicrous death in Return of the Jedi — he tumbles into the sarlacc pit when a blind Han Solo accidentally ignites his rocket pack — that the fan-favorite bounty hunter just had to be resurrected … in the non-canonical Star Wars Legends, at least.
But surely he didn’t simply crawl out of the Great Pit of Carkoon, where he should’ve been slowly digested for more than a thousand years. That’s … well, as ridiculous as the way he entered. So how did Boba Fett do it? Dan Stoeffler has a theory, which he’s presented entirely in LEGO.
Lumbering into Toys”R”Us stores next month, the new assortment of Walking Dead Minimates from Diamond Select Toys will feature characters from the “All Out War” story arc of the acclaimed comic series by Robert Kirkman and Charlie Adlard.
Inspired by Adlard’s artwork, each 2-inch minifigure features 14 points of articulation, interchangeable parts and character-specific accessories. The assortment features four two-packs, each with a human paired with a walker. Here’s the character lineup:

After releasing a teaser earlier this month, Kotobukiya has now revealed the first details of its DC Universe Super Powers ARTFX+ statues, inspired by the popular 1980s action figures.
The 1/10th-scale series of non-articulated statues (just under 8 inches tall) debuts in August with Superman, which boasts his classic costume, a real cloth cape and “an alternate arm part to recreate the classic ‘power action’ move.”
