Cute ass Isabelle Animal Crossing toy being re-released

Killer Instinct is getting its own amiibo-like toy line

Killer Instinct Season 3 is still in development, but that hasn't stopped the team from adding in a few more tweaks and extras along the way. One of the biggest upcoming changes is the addition of a Shadow Jago figure, that will essentially...

These Contra action figures are historically accurate

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 children. These figu...

The Nintendo UK Store just got a huge amiibo restock

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 actually work when ref...

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

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 of the figures ...

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...   read

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...   read

[Update] Amazon-exclusive Chibi-Robo amiibo on sale in 15 minutes

The Mega Man toy machine continues: Tamashii Buddies dated

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 coming in April o...

Target exclusive Timmy and Tommy Nook amiibo sighted, Roy exclusive to GameStop

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 Crossing -...

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...

Newer, smaller Vault Boy bobbleheads are coming for Fallout 4

If a Small Soldiers situation ever happened, this massive Zero would be terrifying

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 this gigantic Z...

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

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 Crossing: Happy ...

You can buy the Chibi-Robo amiibo separately in Japan

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 practice there, gett...

Get a quick look at the Disney Infinity Force Awakens Play Set

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 Girls, and the ...
