I love this Lego trailer for Liam Neeson's Non-Stop. I love the level of detail, from the green-brick behind of the MPAA trailer approval to every seat inside the plane.
I just have to ask...why pass up the most obvious in-joke ever, by not having Liam Neeson's humorless villain character from The Lego Movie portray his humorless hero in this new action movie? Did the Poh'lish remover of Nai'il get to the cast before the filmmakers could?
Watch the clip, and then we'll ask Key and Peele...More >>
I guess Bishoujo as a style is now officially of the same mindset as the U.S. Halloween costume industry. If you can't BE an insanely fit woman with an inappropriately sexified costume based on a male character, you can at least OWN one, in plastic form.
But while I get why women enjoy crossplay, I don't understand the mindset that finds Freddy and Jason sexy, and wishes they had boobs. I mean, it's not like they're hideously deformed but actually nice on the inside once you get to know them - F&J are assholes whose ugliness matches their evil. So when you try to get me turned on with their iconography, poor me gets confused.
I feel like one day they'll try to sell us something like Bishoujo Reagan and Obama, and that worries me. A lot.
NECA's newly revealed Power Loader toy won't stand empty after all. Today they announced that they have indeed done what Hot Toys and other companies could not do, and gotten Sigourney Weaver to agree to at least two Ellen Ripley action figures that actually look like her: one from Alien and one from Aliens, both to be revealed at San Diego Comic Con.
Note: the Alien one will be in her jumpsuit, and not from the strip-to-underwear finale. "That's not how I'd have handled it," Todd McFarlane is rumored to have said to nobody, in my imagination.

The nexus of all that is molded, sculpted or stitched - Toy Fair - has descended upon collectors once again. With enough wonderful toys to send Jack Nicholson's Joker into cardiac arrest, crowning this year's most exceptional collectibles is no easier than a buying Hot Toys product on a budget. But tough choices must be, and were, made. From sickeningly cute plush dolls to monolithic statues, here are the 2014 Toy Fair items worthy of even Valhalla's display cases.
This is pretty geeky cool - for the final wave of Mattel's DC Superheroes, they're doing a tribute to Kenner's old Super Powers line. While it'll have the expected Silver Age Superman, Batman and Wonder Woman, it also has the two great tributes above - Gold Superman was prototyped for the original line but never released, while a repainted Green Lantern was sold in the Mexican "Super Amigos" line as the Riddler.
Fleshing out the wave will be Mr. Mxyzptlk and a build-a-figure Kalibak. For images and more Mattel news, including some big Masters of the Universe announcements, check out their latest blog post at Mattycollector.
This ship is pretty freakin' unreal. $250, comes with a new Metalbeard and exclusive Seasick Unikitty. Plus the double-decker couch!
I guess it is the Castle Grayskull of Lego Movie playsets. But how is it that Lego regularly manages to put these top-dollar playsets on shelves, and other toy companies can't?More >>
