The complex superhero (anti-hero?) is rendered here in his comic-book style and packaged in a book-like box featuring that classic WATCHMEN logo. Also included with the awesome 6-inch figure is a trading card featuring all-new art and a character bio.
An exclusive figure, this awesome masked Wolverine is the latest addition to Marvel Select’s awesome line.
Standing about 8 inches tall, his brown costume is a more muted (and more awesome?) version of the stark yellow and black outfit we’re used to seeing. He comes with a sweet figure stand and a Samurai base that makes us all the more excited for the upcoming Wolverine-in-Japan film, The Wolverine.
Designed and sculpted by Gentle Giant! The Hulk. The Thing. The Abomination. The Juggernaut. DST’s oversized Marvel Select action figures have been dazzling collectors for years, and now they’re ready to do it again, with the Rhino! The leather-skinned Spider-Man foe stands over 8 inches tall with 16 points of articulation, and is ready to tear through your Marvel toy collection like tissue paper. Comes ready to display in oversized collector packaging.
The Rhino is sculpted in his trademark densely-textured rhino-hide costume, complete with recurved ramming-horns. Transcending inauspicious beginnings as a garden variety hired thug, the Rhino is the test subject for a leathery skin of armor which affixes permanently to its wearer and provides the wearer with vastly augmented strength and durability. The Rhino’s monstrous power enables him to battle the Hulk on near-equal terms, and his (Rhino’s) near-imperviousness is such that Spider-Man has no choice but to defeat the Rhino by outsmarting and outmaneuvering him.
THE RHINO is the latest addition to the Marvel Select collection and it’s an awesome one. At 8 inches tall, it’s just oversized enough to go with any of the 6-inch Spidey’s you’ve got hanging around. Boasting some awesome sculpting by the folks at Gentle Giant, the leather-skinned juggernaut also features over 16 points of articulation– not bad for a guy built like a tank.
Hugh Jackman bares his claws — and some incredibly ripped abs — in this first official image from The Wolverine.
The movie, a follow-up to Jackman’s 2010 flick X-Men Origins: Wolverine, went off the rails temporarily in the wake of Japan’s Fukushima nuclear disaster. The film’s original director — Black Swan auteur Darren Aronofsky, who teamed with Jackson on artsy time-travel picture The Fountain — quit around the same time as the earthquake-induced meltdown.
New helmer James Mangold (I Walk the Line) then took over production of The Wolverine, which is currently filming in Japan. In the sequel, alpha mutant Logan, having spent his solo movie traipsing around North America, finds himself in Japan unsheathing his adamantium claws to shred battalions of samurai warriors. The story, scripted by The Usual Suspects writer Christopher McQuarrie and Mark Bomback, is based on a 1982 Marvel Comics adventure.
The Wolverine, which includes Will Yun Lee as the Silver Samurai and Svetlana Khodchenkova as Viper, is slated to open July 26, 2013.
The new Dark Knight comes to life in the form of the Super Alloy 1/6 Scale Collectable Figure “Batman by Jim Lee“. Based on Jim Lee’s unique vision, this Batman figure features a more armored suit comprising at least 85% die-cast metal alloy, with more than 50 points of articulation.
Featuring a detachable and posable fabric cape, grappling gun and batarang accessories, and a magnetic dragon gargoyle display base, the Super Alloy 1/6 Scale Collectable Figure “Batman by Jim Lee” is a limited edition piece for collectors.
Working in Detroit, any cop would be a little worse for wear– and ROBOCOP is no exception. Take a look at what the mean streets have done to him in this figure repaint:
Standing about 7 inches tall, Robocop comes with weaponry and switch-out hands. He’s in-stock now, so if you’re a fan of the film franchise, don’t hesitate!

Remember a few months back when James Cameron claimed that for the foreseeable future he would only be working on Avatar sequels and the occasionally documentary to satisfy his affection for the deep sea? Apparently that was no joke, as a recent interview with Sigourney Weaver claims that the next three Avatar films are going into production all at once.
Fans of the original Avatar will likely recall a rather major plot point that involved the death of Weaver’s character, so unless there’s some kind of ecologically-friendly alien magic keeping her alive indefinitely how much sense does it make that she should be prominently featured in the next three flicks?
Wait, that’s exactly what it is, huh? Weaver did die in the first movie, but her mind/spirit/connection to Gaea is going to live on eternally as some kind of spiritual advisor. Sorta like Obi Wan, only with more tongue-in-cheek references to that time she punched an Alien Queen right in the telescoping mandible. Granted, we have no insider information to support this idea, but if Weaver’s character isn’t some kind of ethereal forest spirit who offers stern warnings to the human forces that upsetting the balance of nature on Pandora will end in their bloody defeat, we will be stunned. Doubly so if the spirit doesn’t speak with a ton of reverb and isn’t a shade of ethereal green — any more blue would be a bit gauche, no?
