Sideshow Collectibles Returns With Another Great Darth Vader Figure [Review]

Sideshow Collectibles Darth Vader (Return of the Jedi) Sixth-Scale Figure

Sideshow Collectibles has long been providing the collecting world with sixth-scale figures based on Star Wars. In fact, until Hot Toys jumped on the bandwagon ahead of The Force Awakens, Sideshow was pretty much the only place you could find high-end figures based on George Lucas’ creation. Still, in all that time, there haven’t been a tremendous amount of these figures released, with Sideshow carefully curating its collection with some unexpected choices.

Of course, you can’t have the Star Wars license without putting your own spin on the Sith Lord Darth Vader. As one of the most recognizable entities from the saga, Vader is a prime choice for an action figure. In fact, he’s such a marquee character, it’s the second time Sideshow’s released a figure for him. However, there are plenty of improvements with this revamped edition of Sideshow’s previous Return of the Jedi Darth Vader to make it more than a simple repeat viewing.

A Labyrinth Of Danger And Aesthetics: How ‘Wrath Of The Eternal Warrior’ Made The Deathtrap Work

Wrath of the Eternal Warrior, Valiant Comics

"Labyrinth," the latest arc of Robert Venditti, Raúl Allén and Patricia Martín's Wrath of the Eternal Warrior, seems like a story that I was almost destined to love. It is, after all, a story built around deathtraps --- a seemingly endless string of them, arranged into a maze that was conceived over millennia and built over decades, all directed to the singular purpose of killing an immortal over and over and over again. That high concept is one that I'm pretty much already sold on before we get to things like the characters and creators involved.

Just by virtue of that premise, it got my attention. That it's done so well, put together and presented so cleverly and charged with action movie thrills? That's what makes it one of the best stories of the year.

Transformers Generations Titans Return Titan Force is Easier to Transform Than Say Five Times Fast [Review]

Transformers Generations Titans Return Titan Force

You can always count on Hasbro for some Transformers exclusives at San Diego Comic-Con, and this past year was no exception. There were not one, not two, but three different exclusives offered this year. We tackled Soundwave already, but today we're turning our eye towards the Transformers Generations Titans Return Titan Force set, which is certainly a mouthful.

The set is fortuitously timed to release alongside the new Titans, like Fortress Maximus who also made his debut at SDCC, and includes some new decos for existing figures Windblade, Sentinel Prime and Brainstorm. Sure, this is another Windblade in the long line of SDCC Windblade exclusives, but this set still manages to have plenty of appeal.

Square Enix Play Arts Batman: Rogues Gallery Two-Face is Disgustingly Amazing [Review]

Square Enix Play Arts Batman Rogues Gallery Two-Face

Like any other company with a license for DC Comics characters, Batman and his family have been a big draw at Play Arts. There have been a number of new takes on the character, from Spartan soldiers to futuristic interpretations, but Square Enix's latest attempts spin Batman in a more familiar direction --- that of his rogues. Things kick off with a Two-Face mash-up, and I can tell you this: The world is full of Batman toys, but there aren't many like this one.
