Damn, we missed out on a Disney Infinity Benedict Cumberbatch toy

Moving over to the Marvel realm, the Disney Infinity series had some awesome figures that could have eventually expanded into all of the upcoming MCU films. "Had," being the operative word here, because Disney Infinity as a series was ...   read

Ha, ThinkGeek is doing a Proto Man Buster replica too

Back in 2014, ThinkGeek unleashed a Mega Buster replica out into the world for $80, that has since been cut to $50. It was a little to silly and unwieldy for my tastes, but I imagine someone's son or daughter is having the time of their lif...   read

Mega Man is finally getting its own Funko line

[Update: GameStop has listings now for Ice Slasher and Fire Storm.] With Funko's world domination nearly complete, with just about every "pop culture" item in its grasp, it was crazy that Mega Man wasn't a part of that empire yet. Uh, ...   read

Fangamer is taking pre-orders on these Undertale figures

Skylanders Imaginators, the newest game in the series, is basically Diablo

Activision is in a unique position at this point. It basically started the video game toys-to-life market, and now, a major competitor has pulled out entirely. If it was worried before, it's less worried now. It's just as well as the compan...   read

It takes amiibo approximately two months to sell out now

Transformers and Tamagotchi designer takes on Skylanders with Infinite Arms

I can't say for certain Activision knew it was stumbling onto a multi-billion dollar idea when it decided, "hey, let's do something with Spyro the Dragon." The 10th Spyro hit DS in 2005. In 2011, Activision introduced Skylanders: Spyro's Ad...   read
