SH Figuarts’ “Captain America: Civil War” line has added an Ant-Man figure to its roster — sporting the character’s costume he’ll be wearing in the Captain America threequel.

The Scott Lang/Ant-Man figure comes with a more streamlined helmet than the one we saw in the “Ant-Man” movie last summer, and features more prominent red striping around the side of his legs, along with bracers on the forearms.

Twin Ion Engines — or TIE Fighters — will live on in the new Stars Wars movies, and on collectors’ shelves.

At Comic-Con International this week, Hasbro revealed the first toys in its upcoming Star Wars: The Force Awakens toy line, starting with a glimpse of what to expect from the movie’s villains: a brand-new, 26-inches tall, $170 TIE Fighter along with, naturally, its pilot.

The TIE Fighter is part of The Black Series, Hasbro’s high-end collectible Star Wars line.
