These Contra action figures are historically accurate


Respect for the spread gun

Hot on the heels of other classic 8-bit action figures such as purple Jason and grumpy Godzilla, NECA announced the upcoming release of more toys based on games we used to love (well maybe not love, enjoy? Tolerate?) as child...

Soon, Pikachu will be upon us, creeping up in every mall, beckoning you to go and build him. Yes, that Build-a-Bear promotion will be coming to stores this month, and you can pre-order a ticket now to create him for $28. If y...

The Nintendo UK Store just got a huge amiibo restock


An official online store, imagine that
Nov 28
// Chris Carter
In the UK, Nintendo has a dedicated online store where you can go online, and buy amiibo straight from the source. I know right? Here in the US we have to hunt for retailer exclusives and hope that our F5 tactics actuall...

For $500, this Kratos statue better guard my home


It's technically on sale
Nov 25
// Jordan Devore
Sony is producing a 26" statue of the God of War himself, and at $499.99 a piece (that's $100 off!), I would expect this thing to ward off everything from burglars to evil spirits to mermen. There are 500 statues available fo...

One year after the debut of amiibo, here are the ones that are rare worldwide


After restocks
Nov 22
// Chris Carter
With multiple waves of restocks, many shortages in the great amiibo war of 2015 have been resolved. But I decided to do some research today to try to track down the toughest amiibo to find, and I've come up with a brief list ...

No need to wait in line
The amiibo season this year is nearly over. Pending the release of the Shovel Knight figure in "Holiday 2015" (which could very easily be pushed), Lottie is the last known toy to be released in 2015, as a Target exclusive. As...

From the people that brought you Intern Pikachu, the Pokémon Center is doing a holiday line of Pokémon products. Deck the halls with Pokéballs of holly. Rudolph the red-nosed Deerling. Uh. Man, I really h...

The Trinity shortage was a year ago
It's crazy to think that exactly one year ago today, I was hopping from store to store to pick up the first ever wave of amiibo. While characters like Mario were extremely easy to find, I distinctly noticed that even though I...

[Update: Just 15 minutes until little Chibi Robo's up for sale.] Two hours is enough time to steal and recycle enough copper to buy the latest Nintendo doll going up for purchase, right? The stand-alone version of the Ch...

The Mega Man toy machine continues: Tamashii Buddies dated


April 2016 at 1,620 yen
Nov 19
// Chris Carter
The Tamashii Buddies series is pretty popular in Japan, as figures that basically feature a background diorama of sorts. They're not action figures and have no articulation -- rather, they're meant to be displayed. They're co...

Being an amiibo collector is an expensive hobby. But really, limiting yourself to the Super Smash Bros. line wasn't all that impossible to do. It's the other waves that are starting to get out of control, particularly Animal ...

Nintendo is putting out another batch of amiibo figures and cards on January 22, 2016, as announced during today's Nintendo Direct. Good luck securing your Lucas amiibo! Wouldn't want Ness to feel lonely.

What is going on with this Dragon's Crown figure?


Mesmerizing in all the wrong ways
Nov 11
// Jordan Devore
I'm almost at a loss for words other than to say you don't know what you've got until it's gone. The last Dragon's Crown Amazon figure (that I've seen, anyway) was over the top in ways you would expect given the source material, but that design now looks respectable compared to what's happening here. If you don't mind my asking, uh, what exactly is happening here?

If the 7-inch Vault Boy bobbleheads were too rich for your blood at $20, Bethesda has announced another 5-inch line that's going for $15 apiece. At this point you have a huge range to choose from, running the gamut of pretty ...

This week, four new toys are arriving in the Disney Infinity 3.0 universe -- Darth Maul, Ultron, Hulkbuster Iron Man, and Spot. While Hulkbuster is technically a larger, more premium-like figure, it's listed at the same MSRP ...

Small Soldiers, also known as the evil PG-13 inverse of Toy Story, might have had a mixed public reception, but it also spawned a pretty badass PlayStation game. It also haunted the dreams of many kids, which is exactly what ...

Nintendo notes that amiibo sales aren't stopping, Animal Crossing Cards are selling gangbusters


Those cards are where I draw the line

Over 20 million amiibo have been shipped worldwide in this past year. Despite the manufacturing issues and poor communication, Nintendo has done well for itself. The margins are likely far more lucrative for the Animal C...

You can buy the Chibi-Robo amiibo separately in Japan


No bundle needed
Oct 20
// Chris Carter
In western regions, you'll have to pony up for the Chibi-Robo!: Zip Lash bundle to gain access to the Chibi-Robo amiibo, but it looks like a recent listing proves that isn't the case in Japan. It's a fairly typical pract...

I'm so torn on Kylo Ren. On one hand, he looks awesome, has a sufficiently cool-sounding backstory, and the fact that he's "not a Sith" is intriguing. On the other, he's played by Adam Driver, the absolute worst character on ...

Pikachu wants a good job so he can start a family, but he's up against over 700 other candidates and "lacks experience." But the thing is, he can't get sufficient experience without a job. So he has become an intern. Unpaid, I assume. Poor, poor Pikachu.

Nendoroid figures will bankrupt me: Here's MGS V's Venom Snake


Amazing
Sep 09
// Chris Carter
I wish I could afford every Nendoroid. They're so wonderfully made and span so many beloved franchises, I'd buy nearly all of them. That includes this figure for Venom Snake, which was unveiled by Kojima recently. This is a final sample, and although no date was given, we can reasonably assume the price as compared to the rest of the line. Hideo Kojima [Twitter]
