What Batman Designed By ‘Kingdom Hearts’ Creator Tetsuya Nomura Looks Like (Images)
The Movie God   |  

Tetsuya Nomura's Batman Header Image

As part of Square Enix’s DC Comics Variant Play Arts Kai line of re-imagined figures, Kingdom Hearts co-creator and director and Final Fantasy character designer Tetsuya Nomura has designed his own version of Batman.

Nomura’s vision of the Dark Knight is decidedly unique, so much so that it might come as a bit of a shock to some Batman purists. This is one in a series of new designs by Nomura, and you can see what his version of the legendary superhero looks like below.

Box Of Dread: The Gift Of Horror
Olympus Athens   |  

Box of Dread

DVDs, CDs, books, wine, beer, fruit…all can be had with a monthly subscription for an affordable fee. But how do you get your monthly horror fix? Box of Dread fulfills that need. Every month a box of creepy surprises arrives, containing an assortment of goodies, which could include DVDs, t-shirts, stickers, comics, toys, and more. And although there is a general theme each month, no two boxes are exactly alike.

According to their FAQs page, they aim to “deliver the horror convention experience in a box”. Pick from two plans. The first is $20 a month, including shipping, and you can cancel at any time. The second is $57 for three months, including shipping, and you can cancel at the end of each three. Both plans are automatic renewal.

Kickstarter Spotlight: Austin Toy Museum

I love toys, don’t you? And while Star Wars toys will always have a special place in my heart, it’s comic book toys that really have me making mad dashes to the store looking for special releases or rarities. I know you’ve probably got a favorite toy line or series that makes you feel like a kid again, right? Well, chances are that The Austin Toy Museum has at least a few pieces of memorabilia from your childhood in their stockpile.

The collection is already assembled and ready to be displayed…which brings us to the reason for this Kickstarter campaign. They need a little help finding the perfect place so the public can come and enjoy themselves while being surrounded by all this awesomeness. They aren’t just looking to toss these collectibles into cases and call it done; they are hellbent on creating some awesome dioramas and displays to really jumpstart your childhood nostalgia. Why should you help? Read on to find out more and watch their Kickstarter video!

Next LEGO Movie ‘Ninjago’ Gets A Release Date
The Movie God   |  

LEGO Ninjago

The LEGO Movie was a smash success, scoring $460.7 million worldwide on a $60 million budget, so it should come as no great shock that Warner Brothers wants to turn it into the next huge franchise. A direct sequel to the movie is already in the works for a planned 2017 release, and now comes word of a September 23, 2016 release date for a spinoff titled Ninjago.

The movie will be based on the Ninjago line of ninja-inspired LEGOs, and will be directed by Charlie Bean, who previously directed Tron: Uprising for Disney XD and will be making his feature debut here. Bryan Shukoff and Kevin Chesley wrote the screenplay.

Because Awesome: Terry Pratchett’s ‘Discworld,’ In Lego Form!
Waerloga69   |  

Terry Pratchett's Discworld

As some of you might be aware (but I was not) there is a Lego site where you can go and vote for your favorite themes/characters/shows/etc. to hopefully be one day turned into a Lego set. But before you go dragging your thirty-year-old building blocks out and attempting to build a massive homage to whatever it is you feel deserves to be immortalized, know this: there are A LOT of ideas out there. Some are approved, while others are not. There are so many that it’s difficult to choose just one that I would want to highlight. Oh wait, no it isn’t. I know exactly which one I want to show you: Terry Pratchett‘s Discworld!

Not only did GlenBricker submit the idea, he also managed to create a pretty awesome Discworld resting on the back of four elephants who are standing on the shell of a giant turtle called Great A’Tuin. Of course, if you are a Pratchett fan you already knew that. But this is a worthy endeavor, in every sense of the word. How better to pay tribute to one of the finest fantasy authors of our time than by building his world and characters out of legendary Legos? Check out the photo below for a look at the mock up.

LEGO ‘Doctor Who’ License Conflict Over; Send In Your Submissions Now!

[LEGO Doctor Who concept photo from LEGO CUUSOO.]

Since its beginning in 1963, the faces, the logo, and the monsters of Doctor Who have graced a myriad of items for sale to the public — from the Dalekmania toys of the 1960s, through series novelizations, and a huge number of Doctor Who comics and comic books (most notably by Watchmen co-creator Dave Gibbons), to board games, breakfast cereal, and toy sonic screwdrivers galore. If you want it, the BBC has been ready to let you have it, pretty much without exception.

Yet there is one place where Doctor Who merchandising has not been allowed to go: LEGO. It’s a seemingly natural fit that just hasn’t come together at all… until now.

‘The Amazing Spider-Man’ 2 Hasbro Toys (Photos)

The Amazing Spider-Man 2 Hasbro toys banner

The great thing about a Hasbro/Marvel movie action figure line is that in addition to some great figures based on the heroes and villains in the film, there’ll also be a bunch of comics-based figures to boot. And this is the case with the The Amazing Spider-Man 2 movie line. Hasbro debuted their tie-ins for the upcoming film at last weekend’s Toy Fair in New York City, and we have a bunch of photos of the products here below.

Of course, as with any movie-based toy line, released in advance of the film, there’s also a slight risk of some spoilers, such as the Dead Gwen Stacy figure*, but alas, that’s the nature of the internet, and in most cases, these spoilers often serve to heighten anticipation in the coming flick.

So in addition to the various figures straight out of the movie, we’ll be treated to comic book versions of Beetle, Black Cat, Carnage, Superior Spider-Man, and the Ultimate Green Goblin.

Also, the upcoming film was featured recently in USA Today, which debuted three new images from Guardians of the Galaxy, including one of The Milano spaceship flying over the planet Xandar, the homeland of the Nova Corps intergalactic military/police force.

Check out the new images here below.
