October Toys Skeleton Warriors Baron Dark Action Figure

He LIVES!!  Well...sort of. From dream to Kickstarter to insanely awesome physical toy in my fanboy hands, the Skeleton Warriors are back, starting with their fearsome leader, Baron Dark! You may (or may not..which is probably more the case) remember the Skeleton Warriors cartoon or the action figure line that turns up at flea markets across the planet ..seemingly every damn day. These fantastically sculpted toys from Playmates were waaaay ahead of their time...and maybe a little too far ahead as parents deemed them too terrifying for their precious children ...and they disappeared into the pile of oddball properties churned out by the 80's and 90's. Now October Toys has teamed up with the original creators of the series with hopes of recreating the freaky fiends with every awesome detail in tact, utilizing a Glyos body system, allowing for superior articulation and easy to pop off parts that you can mix with any other Glyos compatible figure.

Hasbro's Playskool Jurassic World Tyrannosaurus Rex

As we inch closer to Jurassic World's June 12th release date, eagle eyed toy junkies are ever vigilant for the first appearances of the toy line on shelves...which really should be invading any day now! First strike goes to Hasbro's Playskool Heroes line, which is fitting since this is one of the first toys we found awesome pics of round Toy Fair time. The Playskool Heroes Jurassic World Tyrannosaurus Rex features a near-neon green paint job with those tell tail chunky features we love in lil' kid toys! Push his head forward and the TRex leans down to take a bite out of whatever is in front of him, complete with glowing eyes and a rather unsettling crunchy-chewy sound effect. Pleanty of disturbing play value for your tiny growing predator. Dive in for a bunch of pics and some vid of that super sweet munchy action!

Attack on Titan Live Action Movie Trailers

Here's a little story about a sleepy little society existing within 3 walled cities. The walls are massive and imposing, meant to keep out the fearsome Titans, a mad race of giant creatures ever hungry for human flesh. These monsters roam the countryside, occasionally beating against the great wall but never imposing much of a threat the brave rangers can't take care of. All seemed peaceful...until a new Titan appeared and took down the wall.

The insanely popular Manga series and equally popular anime are now getting a live action film, coming this August! Here are two trailers to give you a sense of the psychotic action and ridiculous carnage we are inevitably in for...

FINALLY!! DC Super Hero Girls Have Come

Yesterday, on the way back from a press junket, I stopped at the Times Square Disney Store in New York. On the second floor, I was eyeballing a princess and prince doll set and becoming increasingly impressed with the quality when I met Amanda, who knows her Disney Store exclusives! I threw out an observation that the super hero/Star Wars section in the back, while containing more things for little kids than I'd ever seen before, was completely absent of clothes or toys for little girls. Amanda agreed that, regrettably, they didn't even carry Princess Leia items for them...and if you can't find it at the Flagship NY store, you probably won't find it in any Disney store. Today, I'm happy to show Amanda and thousands of other girls that DC Comics want all their characters to be accessible to multiple generations. Dig the news!!

Call of Duty: Black Ops III "Ember" Tease

Today, we can wear a device on our wrist that does the jobs of several devices that used to take up much of the space in a small backpack. We are prototyping artificial limbs and organs with hardware that seems to advance daily. Doctors are making synthetic skin seemingly from nothing. We are, quite literally, only years away from cybernetic enhancements for our advantage and personal preference...not necessity. Today, Activision gives us a look into that frightening future where "cultural lag" is merely an afterthought. This is the future of Call of Duty: Black Ops 3...

Production Begins on Ash vs Evil Dead

The STARZ Original series “Ash vs Evil Dead” began production this month in New Zealand on the 10-episode first season of the half-hour series executive produced by Sam Raimi, Rob Tapert, Bruce Campbell, the original filmmakers of the franchise, and Craig DiGregorio who will serve as executive producer and showrunner.  “Ash vs Evil Dead” is the long-awaited follow-up to the classic horror film franchise The Evil Dead and is set to premiere on STARZ in fall 2015.

Campbell will be reprising his role as Ash, the stock boy, aging lothario and chainsaw-handed monster hunter who has spent the last 30 years avoiding responsibility, maturity and the terrors of the Evil Dead.  When a Deadite plague threatens to destroy all of mankind, Ash is finally forced to face his demons –personal and literal.  Destiny, it turns out, has no plans to release the unlikely hero from its “Evil” grip.

Jurassic World Gears Up For Dino vs Human WAR with Trailers, LEGO & Video Games

June 12th can't get here quick enough. It's an odd matter how cheesy a Jurassic Park movie looks, I still want to see so badly! Few people can deny their love of dinosaurs, as evidenced this past weekend as I set up shop at a local flea market to unload some toys and witnessed a woman emotionally bond with a JP Raptor I had just scored at a Good Will store. She picked it up..gave it a pat, worked his little chomping action and then proceeded to hug it out as she asked how much it was. To her credit, she still tried to talk me down in price!! THIS is the love people are feeling for Jurassic World and why, most likely, we are looking at a colossal box office opening weekend. Until that awesome day arrives...we've got a new trailer!
