DC Comics Reveals Full "Rebirth" Cast of Characters
It’s a safe bet that you, and anyone you share a room with, won’t get much sleep for, oh, the first week that you own this Super Mario Bros.-inspired light. You see, much like the Question Blocks in the video game, this lamp makes a “Ping!” sound effect whenever you press it.
Alas, it doesn’t spit out any gold coins (or mushrooms, or bean stalks, or ….). Not that you’ll need any, mind you, as it’s reasonably priced.
The Star Wars franchise is jam-packed with iconic scenes, but few reach the dizzying heights of the Cloud City lightsaber duel in The Empire Strikes Back, which ends with Darth Vader revealing that he’s Luke Skywalker’s father. That moment could be immortalized as a LEGO set, with a bit of support.
Some days you just want to relax and gaze out a window while contemplating world domination and the destruction of your enemies. On those days, you need this skull armchair.
It’s not often that you can say “Captain America rocks” — after all, he’s a straight-laced superhero who’s roughly your (great-) grandparents’ age. However, here it’s fitting, and without an ounce of irony.
Eric Calderone (aka Erock), whom you may recognize from his 2014 rendition of the Iron Man theme, pay tribute to the Sentinel of Liberty with a metal version of Alan Silvestri’s “Captain America March” from Captain America: The First Avenger — with a little assistance from “Underoos.”
Debuting books include The Nameless City, by Faith Erin Hicks; What Is Obscenity? The Story of a Good For Nothing artist and Her Pussy, by the Japanese artist Rokudenashiko, who was just found guilty of obscenity for distributing 3D printer data of her genitals; 20×20, an anthology commemorating Conundrum Press’s 20th anniversary, and Tract, a graphic novella created specially by manga-ka Shintaro Kago for TCAF.
Sure, you may think Deadpool looks like an avocado had sex with an older, more disgusting avocado, but have you seen these Cosbaby versions of the Merc With a Mouth? They’re downright precious.
Unveiled by Hot Toys, each of the five bobble-head figures stands 9.5 centimeters, and depicts Deadpool in a different pose: sword-fighting, gesturing, surprised, striking a fighting pose, and making a hand heart gesture.
A new video lets you (literally) see things from Iron Man’s point-of-view in “Captain America: Civil War.”
Created by Danny Shepherd of ismahawk, a short film titled “First Person: Iron Man” takes a “Hardcore Henry” approach to “Captain America: Civil War” by presenting a completely first-person version of the film
Think Ultimate Fighting Championship, only with oversize, gas-powered piloted robots.
Legal | Crime comics, including most superhero titles, are illegal in Canada, thanks to a seldom-enforced 1940s-era law that’s still on the books. The law, which was enacted during one of the early waves of anti-comics hysteria, bans the publishing, sale or possession with intent to sell of any comic that depicts a crime. Elton Hobson tells the whole tale, which starts with a murder and ends with a shrug from a retailer who’s confident she won’t be clapped in irons for selling Spider-Man comics. [Global News]
Kotobukiya’s harkening back to one of the most beloved versions of the Caped Crusader with the latest installment in its ArtFX+ line of statues — a “Batman: The Animated Series” 1/10-scale figurine.
Standing 7.5 inches tall, Kotobukiya’s “Batman: The Animated Series” statue comes with loads of customizable accessories, including three sets of eyes (normal, squinting, and weak) and three interchangeable facial expressions (open mouth, scowl, and clenched teeth), in addition to three versions of Batman’s right hand that include a thumbs up, a batarang and a grappling gun.
“LEGO Dimensions” just got a little bigger. Thanks to the release of three new Fun Packs, Batman villain Bane, “Ghostbusters'” Slimer and Lloyd from “LEGO Ninjago” have joined the fray, complete with buildable characters, rebuildable 3-in-1 vehicles and gadgets with special in-game abilities. These three Fun Packs will conclude Wave 5, though more expansion packs are on the way.
With the Bane Fun Pack, players can activate the character’s Hazard Protection, Big Transform or Super Stealth abilities to solve puzzles and overpower enemies, while his 3-in-1 Drill Driver — which can be rebuilt into the Bane Dig ‘n Drill and the Bane Drill ‘n Blast — boosts gameplay and enables in-game ability upgrades.
Starting this summer, Batman’s dastardly group of foes will begin a nefarious plot to take over his presence in Funko’s line of Pop! Vinyl figures. If fans of the line aren’t careful, they could end up with an Impopster in their home!
Funko has unveiled a new wave of figures in their popular Pop! Vinyl line, one that finds Batman villains — including Harley Quinn, Penguin, Riddler, Scarecrow, Two-Face and Poison Ivy — donning variations of the Dark Knight’s duds. Each character’s sporting a mash-up of their truly villainous identities and Batman’s iconic cape and cowl. The line starts in July with the release of the Riddler and Poison Ivy Pops and continues through November.
Although the new Shanghai Disney Resort doesn’t officially open until June 16, we already have an up-close look at its Tron-inspired roller coaster, thanks to incredible point-of-view footage captured during a cast preview.
Be warned: If you get motion sickness, or have bad memories of the Grid, you may want to turn away, because this video puts you right in the middle of the action.
Caught up in the excitement for Civil War, the Hacksmith set out to create a replica shield that can actually attach and detach to his arm, much in the way Captain America’s does in the film. That, of course, calls for the construction of an electromagnetic arm brace.
Because, of course.
The designers at Valentino must have an appreciation for superheroes, or at least their aesthetic. After first introducing a capsule collection inspired by Wonder Woman, the Italian fashion house has partnered with DC Comics and Marvel for a trio of sneakers based on Batman, Superman and Spider-Man.
