Meet Optimus EVA Prime, A Prank Figure From The Transformers x Evangelion Collaboration

Optimus Eva Prime main

What's that old saying? "Freedom is the right of all sense-shattering soul-powered cloned angel mech things?"

Whatever the case, the first full-fledged action figure coming from Takara Tomy's Transformers x Neon Genesis Evangelion crossover teased in last month in a number of Japanese hobby magazines is a prank, but it's still cooler than the NERV-decorated Optimus Prime seen in an early promo illustration.

The LEGO Batman ’66 Batmobile Needs To Happen

Batman '66 Batmobile LEGO se

LEGO's Cuusoo program recently changed its name to the much more easy to understand "LEGO Ideas," but the basic idea is the same: Fans come up with ideas for new LEGO sets, and if they get enough votes, there's a good chance that they'll actually be made into official offerings from everyone's favorite Danish building blocks. As you might expect, most of the ideas tend to revolve around pre-existing pop culture icons, and and while I'd love to see more sets based on things that weren't just TV shows and movies, you can't deny that there is awesome stuff over there.

Like, for instance, Sam Gras' Batman '66 Batmobile, which he's hoping to get picked up in time for the show's 50th anniversary in 2016, featuring TV-accurate license plates, a moustachioed Cesar Romero Joker, and shark-repellent Bat-spray.

Following a few of prototype teases, Good Smile Company has finally posted official product images of its Figma take on Captain America. Slated to join 6" tall, super-articulated takes on Iron Man Mark VII and Thor in September, this version of Cap comes packed with what appear to be two sets of interchangable hands, his trademark indestructible shield and an articulated stand. Also? Articulated eyeballs.

The Comics Alliance Collection: Cool Stuff We (And You) Got This Week

Untitled-1

The ComicsAlliance staff is a diverse lineup writers, editors, artists, photographers and designers, but before we’re any of those things we’re simply fans. Appreciators. Collectors. Almost every day we share with each other via Instagram all the great books, toys, artwork, apparel, and other beautiful and/or inescapably cool objects we collect almost ceaselessly in comics stores, at conventions, and from all kinds of sources all over North America (and sometimes beyond). Displaying (i.e. showing off) some rad swag typically inspires everyone to one-up their pop-archeologist game in the never ending quest to find awesome stuff, and simply posting the week’s new comics usually causes someone to discover a new title or artist, which in turn inspires a whole new line of excavation.

In the past we’ve published photos of our “con hauls” here on CA and the resulting discussion with readers — i.e. collector kudos — has always been fun, so with the ComicsAlliance Collection we’re going to do it every week. But more importantly, we want to see your collection too. Show us new additions to your collections by using the hashtag #CAcollection on Instagram and we’ll embed the best stuff alongside our own recent acquisitions. And please do follow us @ComicsAlliance.

Comics Alliance Presents Here’s The Thing Episode 5: Strange Tales Of Toy Comics With Chad Bowers

Here's The Thing, Episode 5

If our weekly Ask Chris column isn't enough of definitive comic book (and pro wrestling) opinions for you, good news: ComicsAlliance is proud to present Here's The Thing, a series of videos where you can join our own extremely opinionated senior writer, Chris Sims, as he sits in his living room under a framed portrait of Destro, drinking a cup of coffee and sharing his opinion on comic books.

This week, Chris is joined by Down Set Fight and Subatomic Party Girls co-writer Chad Bowers for a conversation about the very strange ways that toy comics are influenced by their source material -- and how sometimes, that source material influences right back. Special guests include G2 Megatron and Chameleon, the Baroness's identical cousin.

McDonald’s Offers Up Gendered ‘The Amazing Spider-Man 2′ Happy Meal Toys, So You Can Finally Have That Hot Pink Spidey Purse You Wanted

McDonald's Spider-Man Toys For Girls

The release of a major superhero movie is pretty much always accompanied by a fast food tie-in. Even the relatively complex, morally challenging Dark Knight had that pizza with triple pepperoni from Dominos, so it's pretty obvious that The Amazing Spider-Man 2 is going to be going all out. And they have, with a promotional tie-in with McDonald's that includes Happy Meal toys. The thing is, the ASM2 Happy Meal toys come in two distinct forms: Cars, masks and action figures for the boys, and bracelets, purses and journals for the girls. You know, for their feelings.

You're f**kin' up, McD's.
