Just in time for Halloween: THE WOLF MAN

The Wolf Man arrives as a rotoscoped, stylized figure standing 9-inches tall and looking not only very dynamic, but just as vicious as horror fans would want. He’s made by Mezco, so you can definitely expect a high-quality item with some truly outstanding sculpting; everything Mezco’s done so far had really impressed and this figure, based on Benicio Del Toro’s thrilling take on the classic character. It’s a timely arrival this close to Halloween! You can grab it right here!

And if you haven’t seen the film yet–or if you’re a big fan who hasn’t grabbed it–then check it out right here!

New Moon: Series 2 – Shirtless Jacob and Sparkling Edward

Love it or hate it, Twilight is here to stay…at least for a couple more years as we await the coming of the last two films. And with the marketing machine behind Stephanie Meyer’s juggernaut of a franchise still going strong, NECA’s released a whole new wave of figures as the second series from their New Moon collection.

For fans of the series, this is a blessing. For those who can’t stand it, well…these might be the most alarming yet as, on top of a second Edward and a figure of Jasper, Series 2 brings us…SPARKLE EDWARD (above) and SHIRTLESS JACOB.

Yes, that’s correct. One figure devoted to Edward as he appears in the sun (why these vampires sparkle rather than burn, I don’t know, but such is the watered-down monster of our time) and another to those who just want to see Taylor Lautner with his top off. You can see the whole set (and the original Twilight figures) over in CmdStore’s Twilight section and here’s a look at what you can expect from everybody’s favourite shirtless werewolf.

Personally, though, I think I’ll be sticking with Benicio Del Toro in the upcoming The Wolf Man. And we’ve got figures from that, too, which I can definitely say I prefer even if he keeps his shirt on.

Benicio Del Toro as The Wolf Man : New Figures!

Noted awesome guy Benicio Del Toro’s next role onscreen will be in 2010’s The Wolf Man, a remake of the Lon Cheney original that’s sure to show a new generation what classic horror movies once brought to the table. And give Benicio fans (like me) a chance to see him take on a role unlike any he’s ever played.

And I’m more than pleased (and more than excited) to say it’s also going to be a treat for the toy collector in me, because the folks at Mezco, who previously brought us an incredible line from Hellboy and Hellboy II (as well as comic and series based figures), are releasing two Wolf Man figures featuring the awesome makeup designs by the legendary Rick Baker (look him up, you’re almost guaranteed to know at least some of his work!). There’s a 6-inch model and a 12-inch as well and both look spectacular. Check ’em out over at CmdStore’s Wolfman section or click the pic below!
