Tremble in the presence of 3A Toys’ Doctor Doom figure

3a-doom3-cropped

It’s been a while since we’ve seen anything about the Doctor Doom figure from Ashley Wood’s 3A Toys, but judging from this post on the company’s production blog, that’s about to change very soon.

While we wait, however, the company provides a look at all colorways for the 1/6th-scale figure: Classic Edition, Ghost Edition and Stealth Edition. 3A’s Iron Man figures are kind of pricy, and I’m guessing these will be in the same range. Still, they’re pretty amazing-looking.

Not content to stop with its Groot and Dancing Groot bobbleheads, Funko has officially announced — through Marvel’s Ryan Penagos – a third figure based on Guardians of the Galaxy‘s breakout star.

It’s part of the company’s Hikari Japanese Vinyl line of limited-edition hand-crafted figures (in this case, it’s limited to 5,000 copies). No further details were revealed this morning, but you can likely expect it to cost somewhere between $50 and $80, depending upon whether the figure is 6 inches tall or 8 inches.

Marvel Toy News snapped some photos of the Groot figures last week at New York Comic Con, if you’re interested in a close-up look.

Take a look at DC Collectibles’ Jae Lee action figure line

jae lee figures

Jae Lee’s work on Superman/Batman has simultaneously been among the most unique and divisive of DC Comics’ New 52. After years working on Marvel’s adaptation of Stephen King’s The Dark Tower, Lee’s return to superhero work has found a balance between iconic and creepy; while his style might seem tailor-made for the likes of Batman and Catwoman, his depiction of Superman has been both haunting and boyish in all the various main- and alternate-universe incarnations.

And now, DC is using those designs as the basis for a line of collectible figures.

dancing-baby-groot

That Dancing Baby Groot everyone’s been clamoring for will arrive — officially licensed! — in time for Christmas.

Sure, Funko has that adorable little bobblehead, but this one from Marvel and KIDdesigns actually dances to a rendition of the Jackson 5’s “I Want You Back” the plays from a speaker built into its base. (The pot is emblazoned with the words “I Am Groot,” in case there’s any doubt to his identity.) However, you’ll have to come up with your own Drax if you want to reenact the scene from Guardians of the Galaxy.

Mashable has revealed the first look at Dancing Baby Groot in action (below). It’ll be priced at $14.99, give or take, which means you’ll be able to buy one for all the Guardians fans in your life. Or, you could just get several for yourself.

It’s not an off-brand Groot, it’s a ‘Cuddly Plush Alien Tree’

cuddly-tree-alien-cropped

There are a lot of products offered on Etsy that likely would be frowned upon by most film studios, television networks and publishers — posters, jewelry, clothing, toys, etc., featuring properties protected by trademark and copyright. However, there’s something wonderfully charming about Handmade Stuffs‘ off-brand plushes based on well-known fictional characters.

Sure, the stuffed creations are plenty cute in and of themselves, but the imaginative (and hopefully non-infringing!) names are what really sell them. Take, for instance, “Cuddly Plush Alien Tree” (“This adorable botanical extraterrestrial is ready to guard the galaxy with you!”), or the sold-out “Cuddly Plush Furious Director” (“He may only have one eye, but he’ll always be on the lookout for bad guys!”)

Using bits and pieces from other characters — a She-Hulk head here, an Indiana Jones whip there — he’s crafted 4-inch scale figures of Gal Gadot as Wonder Woman and Ben Affleck as Batman (with and without his cowl). The join the Superman, Jor-El and Kryptonian villains he assembled based on Man of Steel.
