"Now, it's just war." Prime 1 Studio 'Batman: Arkham Knight' The Joker 33-inch Tall Statue

Pre-order

“Take a hint o'boy. We may have had our differences, but you and me, we're made for each other!”

Sideshow and Prime 1 Studio are proud to present The Joker from Batman: Arkham Knight. The Joker was an insane, homicidal supervillain, and the arch nemesis of Batman. His white skin, green hair and blood red lips belied the chaotic nature that underlay his cartoonish appearance.

The extremely intelligent self-styled "Clown Prince of Crime" had no superpowers beyond a capacity for incredible violence and a skill at creating deadly mayhem, and frequently concocted elaborate schemes to entrap his nemesis. He serves as the main antagonist of Arkham Origins and Arkham Asylum, is one of the main antagonists of Arkham City, is one of the prominent antagonists of Arkham Knight, and can be considered the central antagonist of the Arkham series overall.


The Joker Statue features: Size approximately 33 inches tall, Three (3) interchangeable left arms, Two (2) alternate regular portraits, One (1) alternate exclusive portrait

"I am the LAW!" 2000 AD x ThreeA 1/6th Scale JUDGE DREDD 12" Collectible Figure Review

Finally! After all these years, a 1/6th scale 2000 AD Judge Dredd 12-inch figure has been released. There have been two movies made of Judge Dredd but they were never the original version as seen in the 2000 AD British comic magazine. Following the two film premieres, 12-inch Judge Dredd figures from both films have been produced and reviewed on this toy blog but there's nothing like the original.

In the dystopian post-apocalyptic future of the 22nd century, crime runs rampant in Mega-City One. Here the people are policed by the Judges, elite cops prepared to do whatever it takes to keep the peace, even if it means sentencing criminals to death on the spot. Only the Judges can prevent total anarchy. Empowered to dispense instant justice, these lawmen are judge, jury and executioner. And the most feared of all the Judges is Judge Dredd.


This is the recently released 2000 AD x ThreeA 1/6th Scale JUDGE DREDD Collectible Figure and it is a beauty and also a beast! The beauty is in all the attention to the details and the wonderful accessories that come with this figure. The beast is the figure itself, a true interpretation and realization of the 2-D Judge Dredd into a 3-D masterpiece!

ThreeZero 1/6th scale Species Sil 13.7-inch tall Articulated Collectible Figure designed by Giger

Species is a 1995 American science fiction horror film directed by Roger Donaldson and written by Dennis Feldman. It stars Natasha Henstridge (in her debut film role), Ben Kingsley, Michael Madsen, Alfred Molina, Forest Whitaker and Marg Helgenberger. In the film, a motley crew of scientists and government agents tries to track down a seductive alien played by Henstridge before she successfully mates with a human male. Due to her ruthlessness, the alien character was cited as an example of negative treatment of female sexuality and aliens by Hollywood. The design of Sil was also linked to a chupacabra sighting.

The extraterrestrial in Species, an alien woman named Sil, was designed by H. R. Giger, also responsible for the beings from the Alien franchise. The effects combined practical models done by Giger collaborator Steve Johnson and XFX, with computer-generated imagery done by Richard Edlund's Boss Film Studios.

An international co-production between the United States, the United Kingdom, Japan, and Germany, it was directed by Simon West and revolves around Lara Croft trying to obtain ancient artifacts from the enemy, the Illuminati.

Finally! We will be getting a Hot Toys 1/6th scale Oscar Isaac as Poe Dameron collectible figure

"That's one hell of a pilot!" - Finn

Poe Dameron is a commander in the Resistance's Starfighter Corps and one of Leia Organa's most-trusted operatives. The son of a rebel fighter pilot and a rebel commando, Poe grew up on stories of Alliance campaigns. A decorated X-wing pilot, he can fly anything – which is fortunate given how often his headstrong nature leads him into trouble.


This collectible figure of the amazing Resistance pilot who can "fly anything" will soon join the ranks of Hot Toys' Star Wars collectible series! Stay on the lookout, Star Wars fans!


Introduced in the 2015 film Star Wars: The Force Awakens, he is portrayed by Oscar Isaac. Poe is an X-wing fighter pilot for the Resistance who inadvertently brings renegade stormtrooper Finn (John Boyega) and Jakku scavenger Rey (Daisy Ridley) into the fight against—and eventually a victory over—the sinister First Order. He is featured in The Force Awakens media and merchandising as well as an eponymous comic book series, and will appear in the film's forthcoming sequel, Star Wars: The Last Jedi. Isaac and the character have received positive reviews, with Poe being compared to the characterization of Han Solo (Harrison Ford) in the original Star Wars film trilogy.

Having already posted a 1/6th scale Rick Deckard (see the action figure review HERE) and the Police Spinner (pics HERE), I decided to try my hand at K. This is my attempt at kitbashing a 1/6th scale Ryan Gosling as Blade Runner 2049 LAPD Officer K 12-inch figure from parts lying around.

Medicom Toys "Back to The Future II" Future Car is Police Spinner in Ridley Scott's Blade Runner

continued from previous toy blog post...

In Ridley Scott‘s Blade Runner, the year was 2019 and the future is set in a dystopian Los Angeles. Besides the story and Harrison Ford, it was also memorable for the flying cars or 'Spinners'. Spinner is a nickname for the type of Police flying car in Blade Runner that can drive as a ground car, take off vertically, hover and cruise using jet propulsion much like Vertical Take-Off and Landing (VTOL) aircraft today.

The film Back to the Future Part II paid homage to the Spinner from Blade Runner in that a repainted spinner can be seen parked in a driveway. A spinner car also rests on the Hill Valley Street during the hoverboard chase.


Medicom Toys released this Back to the Future Part II future car as a vehicle for their Kubrick line of mini figures and called it a Miracle Action Vehicle. The Spinner is missing the blinking police lights, blue police colours and markings but has turning wheels which retract for flight-mode and winged doors that opened upwards. The glass bubble cockpit allows the occupants to look up, forward & rear as well as downwards when it is in flight.

The release of Blade Runner 2049, a sequel to the 1982 released Blade Runner has brought the attention back to the neo-noir science fiction film first directed by Ridley Scott and starring Harrison Ford as "blade runner" Rick Deckard, whose job was to track down bioengineered beings known as replicants and "retire" (i.e. kill) them.

Set in a dystopian Los Angeles in 2019, the story depicts a future in which synthetic humans known as replicants are bioengineered by the powerful Tyrell Corporation to work on off-world colonies. When a fugitive group of replicants led by Roy Batty (Rutger Hauer) escape back to Earth, burnt-out LA cop Rick Deckard (Harrison Ford) reluctantly accepts one last assignment to hunt them down. During his investigations, Deckard meets Rachael (Sean Young), an advanced replicant who causes him to question his mission.


Following news that Redman Toys will be releasing 1/6th scale Blade Rick and Blade Roy 12-inch collectible figures, essentially Deckard and Batty (see the toy blog post HERE) and recasts of Brother Production figures released back in 2009, I thought I'll take the opportunity to post pictures of the 2009 released Brother Production 1/6th scale Blade Hunter 12-inch figure in this entry.

Hot Toys Terminator Genisys 1/6th scale Endoskeleton 33 cm Collectible Figure Review II

continued from previous toy blog post...

This is the recently released Hot Toys MMS352 Terminator Genisys 1/6th scale Endoskeleton 33 cm tall Collectible Figure with LED-lighted eyes (red light, battery operated, batteries included) and Endorifle. I like that Hot Toys includes the batteries (nowadays packed separately) which you can use to check out the light-up features. Other companies like ThreeA / ThreeZero and PewPewGun do not include batteries even though their figures have light-up features. It's quite a hassle when you already have the figure in-hand but you still need to go out and purchase the right size batteries to test the light-up elements, especially when you already paid quite a bit for the collectible figure. With all Hot Toys figures, batteries are included and packed separately these days, unlike in the past when the figures came with batteries already inserted. We all know what happens to electronic components when batteries are left in for too long. Check out my toy blog post "Hot Toy Collecting Tip #1: Remove ALL Batteries!" posted HERE.


Like I mentioned earlier, I'm quite glad Hot Toys didn't go the die-cast route with this 12-inch figure. They would probably face a lot of issues because of the thin parts like the pistons and such. The main problem would be the weight as the figure would be too top heavy and gravity will not be kind to it. As it is, this rather lightweight plastic made figure cannot stand on its own two feet. The steel-looking body looks very realistic with the specially applied multiple layers of metallic paint on the endoskeleton plus additional weathering effects. The pre-posed metallic-looking hands included for holding his weapon is a right move as articulated fingers would not be able to hold onto the rifle. The flexibility of the individual joints / digits will ultimately compromise the rigidity of the grasp. Even then, the large Endorifle is a tad heavy for the figure to grasp properly, let alone try to raise it.
