Those Funko toys everyone loves are going Fallout, Dark Souls

Every time I walk into a store, it feels like their Funko sections grow double in size, and provide figures for franchises that are increasingly obscure. Well a lot of parents are probably going to be puzzled by this toy when they walk into...

You can scan the Shovel Knight amiibo through the box

Fans recently discovered that the Shovel Knight amiibo can be scanned through the box, and guess what -- Yacht Club Games actually did this by design. According to the developer, they obtained feedback from fans before the launch of the ami...

Info for 'amiibo dungeon' spotted on Twilight Princess HD Amazon listing

I expect some controversy to come out of this for sure, given the talk about amiibo functionality as of late. According to the Amazon France product listing for The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess HD, there's an amiibo-specific dung...

See how a Disney Infinity figure is made, and by proxy, a terrifying 3D printer process

Disney is sharing how they actually craft their figures for Disney Infinity, and the process looks really damn rad. First an artist comes up with the concept, then they 3D print it, and from there it's molded and washed, with the detai...

This Link Figma is so dang good

I wasn't sure the cutesy Nendoroid Link could be topped, but this Figma based on The Legend of Zelda: A Link Between Worlds is utterly wonderful. The classic look is my favorite to this day. When the toy becomes available this summer in Jap...

Good news, collectors: The Skylanders amiibo are going to be sold separately

[Update: It looks like the pair are going to be sold on 1/9 at GameStop -- there's no current word on what the stock looks like, but since they're being distributed by Activision, there's no doubt that it will be more plentiful than Nintend...

First 4 Figures teases an Alucard toy

Although Castlevania, and Symphony of the Night in particular, get a lot of love, you don't see a whole lot of Alucard merchandise -- or at least, as much as I'd like. That's changing soon, as First 4 Figures is teasing their resin mod...

Kick off Christmas Eve with a picture of a meatless Pikachu

Although Build-A-Bear noted that Pikachu would arrive in "late December," (or possibly not in time for Christmas), local stores are now stocked with him this week. It's $28 for the full rat, and you get a trading card with it. If you want, ...

For $500, this Kratos statue better guard my home

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 for pre-sale now,...

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

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

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 de...
