Revol Mini Solid Snake figure packs a smaller punch

Solid Snake has never been this adorable. Well, I don't know if the new Revoltech line, Revol Mini, qualifies as adorable, but this particular figure cuts it for me. The Solid Snake Revol Mini figure comes packing excellent detail and artic...

The next Skylanders borrows a little from the Pokemon series

New Dragon's Crown figure turns the Amazon into a pole dancer

There's a new Dragon's Crown Amazon figure coming courtesy of Empty and it's some how more fan service-y than the Sorceress. She's straight up pole dancing on her axe for no reason. You can find more shots here. It's better than the last Am...

You have a chance to name these three new Skylanders

Frito-Lay and Activision are holding a little promotion to let fans name these three brand new Skylander characters that will appear in the next game coming out in 2014. There's just something so off about that dolphin creature.  From ...

The Clayface toy just wants to be your friend

Skylanders: Swap Force photo

Impressions: Skylanders: Swap Force (Xbox One and PS4)

Skylanders: Swap Force was one of my biggest surprises of the year. After two full iterations in such a short amount of time, I didn't think Vicarious Visions had it in them to make the strongest one yet. But here we are, and it seems as if...

Review: Skylanders: Swap Force

Skylanders has had a bit of an odd history. Initially, it launched under the auspices of the Spyro name, and made a very small splash in the market -- so small, that barely anyone knew what it was. Fast forward to six months later, and it w...

Dragon Crown's Sorceress figure is what you'd expect

Following some really, REALLY, bad fan made figures is the official Dragon's Crown Sorceress figure. She originally went up for pre-order in July, but the figure was pulled so her face could be reworked. And now, the Sorceress is back. She'...

The Cacodemon has never looked so adorable

I'm not normally one to go for plush toys, but my inner DOOM fanatic is coming out now that I've seen Gaming Heads' Cacodemon and Pain Elemental. Priced at $14.99 each, these six-inch plushes are currently available for those of us in the U...

Now Freddy Krueger is getting an NES-themed figurine

And the world becomes a little bit better. Hot on the heels of NECA's incredible videogame Jason Voorhees, which sold out super fast at San Diego Comic-Con, comes videogame Freddy Krueger. Like his Friday the 13th counterpart, Freddy's look...

The Amazon from Dragon's Crown looks GROSS as a figure

OH GOD MY EYES KILL IT WITH FIRE! [Update: These figures on display are garage kits, so it's all fan made stuff. For official figures, including the Amazon, take a look at this gallery.] Yeah, the Dragon's Crown characters don't really...

Skylanders in Japan photo

First Skylanders hits Japan in July, gets Wii U port

We are so used to waiting insufferably long periods of time for Japanese games to be localized and brought out West that we often imagine Japan as this floating island of privilege and good fortune. How easily do we forget that the reverse ...

Zero Suit Samus figure making a comeback as well

Link and Samus figmas to be restocked this winter

"Remember me?" It's our old friends: Max Factory's figma Link and figma Samus! These sexy poseable figurines were all the rage when they released last year, and they quickly sold out. If you missed that window, it was off to eBay and the ex...

Naughty: Fire Emblem: Awakening's Tharja in figure form

I remember first encountering Tharja in Fire Emblem: Awakening. She was kind of rude and wishy-washy to my party at first, but I took her on anyway. Thinking back, I'm glad I did. Now, if she had showed her love for books (as seen above) at...

Two new Skylanders Giants enter the fray

It feels like we've been waiting forever for new Skylanders Giants characters. The titular "Giants," who are rather large and expensive toys, are getting a staggered release schedule to increase demand. Here, near the end of January, we're ...

Review: Skylanders Giants

Skylanders was one of the biggest surprises of 2011. Pretty much everyone expected it to be a cheap cash-in of 90s nostalgia to sell toys to unsuspecting kids -- and boy, were we wrong. It was actually a pretty fun, serviceable action game,...
