TOY REVIEW: Captain America (Golden Age Version) Sixth Scale Figure by Hot Toys

- 08-17-14Cool Stuff, Featured, reviews Posted by Luke Gallagher

One cannot simply talk about Captain America and not feel compelled to sing the “America, F**k Yeah!” song. So there, I said it. In today’s case, talking about Hot Toys Captain America Golden Age 1/6th Scale Figure, I’d replace “America” with “Hot Toys”. But, that doesn’t quite roll off the tongue in the same way. That, and Hot Toys is a Hong Kong based company… so, umm, yeah. However, they’re products are sold in America and the sentiment of self pride and righteous awesomeness remains the same.

Hot Toys designs and develops highly detailed Sixth Scale collectibles featuring actual likenesses of film based characters for distributors like Sideshow Collectibles. It’s a challenge finding a selection of words that pay tribute to Hot Toys mastery in artistry, as their finesse is unbound. A search on Thesaurus.com for the word “stunning” and every synonym would apply. The same can be said for Sideshow, who too manufactures high end articulated figures (as well as busts, statues, prop replicas and more). In addition to designing and manufacturing their own products, Sideshow distributes unique offerings from notable pop culture and figure companies like Hot Toys. But I digress…

Sideshow Collectibles has been gracious enough to send Nerd Bastards a Hot Toys Captain America Golden Age 1/6th scale figure from the critically acclaimed Marvel film Captain America: The Winter Solider. While my review could be summarized in two words, “F**k Yeah”, to truly appreciate the craftsmanship and value in quality, an up-close examination is necessary. Or, you can just look at the pretty pictures.   (more…)

Latest ‘SW7′ Rumors Could Reveal New Villains and Old Heroes

Let’s get one thing absolutely clear:

Far as I’m concerned, ANY information regarding new Star Wars films that did not originate with a source directly connected to Disney or Lucasfilm will be treated as rumor until confirmed. That doesn’t mean leaked bits of news that pop up here and there are not necessarily accurate–only that info which cannot be traced to a reliable source should not be treated as fact.

That being said, the folks over at Latino Review have got a couple of doozies for us today. Follow me after the jump for what the Episode VII rumor mill is currently churning out:  (more…)

New Concept Art Shows The Ghostbusters Ride That Could Have Been

- 08-14-14Cool Stuff Posted by Rush Urbalejo

Once upon a time, there was a little movie called Ghostbusters. The paranormal comedy reunited the hilarious Stripes alums Harold Ramis and Bill Murray, together with Dan Aykroyd, Ernie Hudson and Annie Potts, as a team that were ready to listen to your ghost stories and had the technology to fight back against the things that go bump in the night. The movie was a hit that spurred a sequel (possibly 2), an animated television series, video games, and a marketing bonanza that included everything from lunchboxes to slime.  As extensive as this campaign was, if video game manufacturer Bally had their way, Ghostbusters could have gone even further by being the backdrop to the world’s first theme park ride/video game hybrid.

Robert Englund Suits Up As Freddy Krueger For A Worthy Scare!

- 08-11-14Cool Stuff, Film, TV Posted by Aspry Jones

From playing the part of Thug in ‘Manimal’ in 1983, then suddenly becoming a terror icon a year later as Freddy Krueger, Robert Englund’s sharknado of success was an immediate blessing. Like many typecast actors before him, Englund’s career as the monster from A Nightmare On Elm St.locked him into horror roles ever since. Here it is 2014 and he’s got films titled ‘Death House’ and ‘Fear Clinic’ in post-production. But at least he’s working, and we haven’t seen him don the Freddy claws since 2003′s ‘Freddy Vs. Jason.’ That is, until we got wind of his latest return to the role! The dream fiend is back – but for once it’s for a greater cause beyond killing off an entire town’s population of children.
