Hasbro Unveils Cosmic Marvel SDCC 2014 Exclusives Including A Wearable Infinity Gauntlet
We've seen Hulk Hands, Thing Hands and even a Rocket Raccoon mask, but Hasbro's San Diego Comic-Con International 2014 offerings will outfit fan hands in a straight up Infinity Gauntlet.

The cosmic theme con
‘I Am Elemental’ Kickstarter Aims To Empower Girls (And Everyone Else) With Positive Action Figures
Variety in action figures isn't what it could be. Just as mainstream superhero comics struggle with the representation of women, so too do most corresponding toy lines. Not a lot of female superheroes make it to mainstream toy retailers and many that do are sexualized or at very least created with a straight, adult, male collector in mind. The new IAmElemental Kickstarter seeks to address this dis

‘Foster’s Home For Imaginary Friends’ Could’ve Had The Greatest Action Figure Line Of All Time

‘Pokemon’ Trainer Red And His Team Get The Nendoroid Treatment This Fall
As much as we all love Ash and his Japanese source character Satoshi, there's a certain charm about Pokémon's generic playable trainer, Red. After all, even though he stars in a number of manga including Pokémon Adventures and the recent Pokémon Origins anime, Red is meant to represent you, the player. Take that and shape it in the 3.75" tall Nendoroid chibi style and you've got an action fig
DC Collectibles Solicitations For August 2014
November is going to be a big month for Batman as far as DC Collectibles is concerned. It's fitting, given that this year is the Caped Crusader's 75th anniversary, but it's still worth noting that this may be DC Collectibles' Dark Knight-iest month ever with 16 of its 23 total solicitations representing the Bat family. That's not to say Bats casts too large a shadow over DC and Vertigo's other cha
