There's no better time to be a Star Wars fan than right now. With the first new movie in over a decade finally on the horizon, the hype has hit an all time high. There's also never been a better time to be a fan of Star Wars toys. Not only are there more action figures and collectibles available than ever before, but we live in a time and age when some of the characters actually get practical reproductions that fans can own. While once upon a time it would have cost you a fortune to get an R2 unit, you can now take home a BB-8 at a reasonable price. Or in this case, completely for free.
That's right, we're giving away another Sphero BB-8 to one lucky reader. Not only has BB-8 been front and center in most of Star Wars: The Force Awakens' footage, but the little droid has also found its way into the hearts, minds, t-shirts, purses, suitcases, action figures, soda cups, Google Cardboards and everything else you can slap a BB-8 on. None of those compare though to the actual interactive version of the droid created by Sphero. That's why we're giving another one away.
Thanks to Ant-Man, we know Pym particles allow you to shrink down to the size of an insect, but there isn't a whole lot to do when you're that small. Yeah, you can play with ants and explore the insides of an apartment building just fine, but when you're miniaturized, there's no video games or movies to watch. But what if old Hank Pym had used his technology to bring all his home entertainment system needs down to microscopic levels?
Imagine having a miniature Xbox One to use when you were tired of talking with the ants. Of course, you probably wouldn't be able to bring any game discs or Blu-rays with you down to that level, so you'd mostly rely on digital download codes to get by. Yeah, that makes total sense. In fact, it makes so much sense, we found a way to develop that very thing in case the world ever needed it. Instead of keeping it for ourselves, we're giving it away to you lucky readers.
Thanks to all of you readers, we've had a great year here at ComicsAlliance. Without your support, we wouldn't be able to bring you the insightful commentary, hilarious show recaps, revealing interviews or any number of the other great content we curate to show how great, powerful and sometimes frustrating comics can be. As a token of our gratitude, we've lined up a collection of goods to giveaway just in the time for the holiday season.
Whether you're a longtime fan, a casual comic reader, or someone who's just starting out, we're sure there are more than a few things we'll be offering up that might make the end of your year as bright as you've helped make our 2015.
This Sunday on Nickelodeon, the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles are going back in time. Well, at least their Half-Shell Hero versions are anyway. The new animated special, Half-Shell Heroes: Blast to the Past, takes our ninja buddies to the prehistoric era, where they'll have to stop an alien race from altering the future of the planet.
In addition to this animated special, there will also be some action figures based on the adventure. It just so happens, we've got a few sets to give away.
With a new Star Wars on the way, the deluge of new action figures and toys has been constant. It's the first time in a long time that there's been any reason to create whole new lines from scratch, with some animated exceptions of course. However, as popular as the animated versions of the Star Wars universe have been, they just can't hold a candle to the hype surrounding an actual new film in the iconic franchise. Needless to say, since Force Friday, Hasbro's been busy.
In fact, Hasbro's got so many toys planned for Star Wars: The Force Awakens, there are even exclusive sets popping up at select retailers. Take this Desert Assault Walker and First Order Stormtrooper Officer set from Entertainment Earth. A repaint of the widely available Assault Walker and First Order Stromtrooper Sergeant, this exclusive set offers another way to build up the First Order forces for the 3.75" line. We got our hands on one of these sets courtesy of Entertainment Earth, and can only hope that these things actually make an appearance in the upcoming sequel.
Have you ever wanted to take Daryl Dixon home with you? Well we have some good news for you. Thanks to Entertainment Earth, the heartthrob of AMC's The Walking Dead could be yours. That's right, Norman Reedus himself might soon be staring at you from afar, protecting your home from zombies. You'll have to come up with your own protection from his smoldering gaze though.
The Daryl Dixon Survivor Series Deluxe 10" figure features the crossbow-wielding member of Rick's survivors in his familiar biker vest, and is accompanied by the poncho made famous during the third season of AMC's adaptation of Robert Kirkman's and Charlie Adlard's massively successful comic. Articulation is a bit limited on the piece, but the design and sculpt on point with the actor's likeness and accuracy to his portrayal on the show.
Artist Tyler Stout creates some of the most impressive, amazing and sought-after movie posters in the world. You know his work through Mondo, where he’s designed beautiful posters for Akira, Guardians of the Galaxy and the original Star Wars trilogy. Recently he was commissioned by Marvel to illustrate an Avengers: Age of Ultron poster that would be made exclusively to the cast and crew of that film. In a world of extremely rare posters, this one — unless you’re Robert Downey, Jr., Scarlett Johansson or Joss Whedon — might be one of the rarest. But, we’ve got one right here that we want to give away to one of our lucky readers.
Have you guys heard about the Stars Wars? Have you also heard about Funko Pops? These are two things that seemingly came out of nowhere to dominate store shelves, social media, and websites over the past few days, and quite frankly we're alarmed. But because we don't want to look like we're behind the times, we've snapped up a bunch of these Star Wars: The Force Awakens Funko Pop figures to giveaway to the loyal readers of ComicsAlliance and ScreenCrush.
The whole first wave of figures has been rather hard to find all in one place, but through the grace of the internet god's favor, we managed to procure all your favorite heroes and villains from the upcoming movie nobody has seen, such as Kylo Ren, Captain Phasma and Rey. We've even got some of the classic heroes who actually have proven their worth already in Chewbacca and C-3PO, but we know everyone is really after that cute little BB-8. For all we know, that guy is just a mini-Death Star, and the real villain. You can't prove us wrong. Deal with it.
One of the key sequences of Marvel's blockbuster Avengers: Age of Ultron was the knock-down, drag-em-out fight between the Hulk and Iron Man. For months, Marvel had teased the big throwdown in commercials and trailers, and the final fight in the film definitely delivered on the carnage and chaos one would expect of such a massive slugfest. While the version we got to see in theaters featured a slightly hazy-eyed, green Hulk doing all that damage, that wasn't always the plan. In fact, Hulk was supposed to turn a bit grayer when under the influence of Scarlet Witch.
Though that version never made it into the film due to the creative team finding it too jarring for audiences to see the Hulk drastically change color like that, the spirit of that change lives on through Kotobukiya's Avengers: Age of Ultron statue set. Already, Koto has released the normal versions of the Hulkbuster and Hulk set it produced, but a variant version of the Hulk is being offered as an exclusive through Entertainment Earth. Courtesy of the online retailer, we have an exclusive version of the Kotobukiya Avengers: Age of Ultron Rampaging Hulk ArtFX statue to give away.
There were a lot of exciting toys announced yesterday during the epic 18-hour Star Wars Force Friday reveals, but none as exciting as the BB-8 toy from Sphero. We’ve been gushing about BB-8 since Star Wars Celebration and counting down the days until we could own one. And now that the day is here, it is perhaps even more fun than we imagined.
