Today, Hasbro unveiled Haslab, which promises to basically be the toymaker’s answer to Kickstarter, for diehard fans of its toys. The new crowdsourcing program is kicking off with one hell of a project: a 4-foot long, 14lbs intricate recreation of Jabba’s Sail Barge from Return of the Jedi.
While I am not the biggest fan of the live-action Transformers movies, I do appreciate the “realistic” robot and vehicle designs the series has spawned. Revealed today at Toy Fair 2018, the Studio Series celebrates those designs with intricate figures packaged with movie backdrops. I might need them. Update: And…
In the 25 years since Power Rangers first began, it’s only skipped adapting the current Super Sentai series three times. Now, for its 2019 season, Power Rangers is going back and bringing one of them to western audiences: Tokumei Sentai Go-Busters.
These trolls, clearly trying to ruin everyone else’s fun, have claimed to be moviegoers who were assaulted at Black Panther showings for trying to see the movie while being white.
It’s been awhile since I was so excited for a movie that I saw it twice in its opening week. While waiting to pre-purchase tickets for Black Panther, I developed an unhealthy obsession with Fandango, and my wallet wept when the Funko POP! figures were released. I was excited to go to Wakanda, y’all, and Wakanda did…
Roswell, everyone’s favorite ‘90s show about hiding aliens and sexy angst, is returning to television via the CW. Now, it has a star.
There isn’t a lot of writing in the Star Wars universe. Stories seem to mostly be passed along via oral culture—one person telling a story to another, with all the foibles and forgetfulness personal retellings entail. This Star Wars fan film captures all the fun, and all the forgetfulness, of a good retelling.
When the Hulkbuster made its grand debut in Age of Ultron, Lego gave us a cool, but kinda tiny version of Stark’s most impressive suit. Now, ahead of the Hulkbuster’s return in Infinity War, Lego’s knocking it up another notch with a lavish, 9-inch-tall brick behemoth.
Black Panther is now in theaters and it’s great. Like, really great. And one of the best things about it is you don’t need to be super familiar with Marvel’s 17 previous movies to enjoy it. It totally works on its own. However, if you are familiar with those movies, maybe you walked out of the theater with a question.
A list of books coming out tied to Solo: A Star Wars Story will explore Han’s childhood, future wives, relationship with Lando, his son Ben and more.
These tiny, flipping microbots, currently being developed by researchers at Purdue University, could one day deliver drugs directly inside the body. The magnetically propelled bots are no wider than a pinhead.
Pretty much anything can be improved by adding Jeff Goldblum, but Taika Waititi’s Thor: Ragnarok really used the actor to his fullest potential. Marvel has been releasing a few of their bonus clips from the upcoming Blu-ray release and with them we get to see Goldblum at his... Goldblum-iest.
We see a lot of deals around the web over on Kinja Deals, but these were our ten favorites today.
Women have always been a key part of Star Wars’ mythos, but to hear the way some people reacted to The Last Jedi, you’d think that they feel Star Wars would be better off without any female characters at all. The Force Awakens director J.J. Abrams has identifying their real issue.
I’ve been going back and forth on what the most mind-blowing part of the Super Mario Bros. The Movie Archive is. Maybe it’s the 11-year-old website’s costume catalog, where every single ensemble worn by Bob Hoskins, John Leguizamo, Dennis Hopper, and Samantha Mathis in the most notorious of video game movies is…
We here at io9 love nothing more than sitting down with a stack of comic books and just getting lost in the fantasy and adventure of worlds nothing like our own. We’ve always covered comics that caught our eye, but at the same time, we’ve always wanted to read, share, and spread the word about more.
Last November, Hasbro announced a new deal with Paramount to create a range of movies based on its toy properties. On top of that, the deal will see the further expansion of the Transformers movie universe, starting with this year’s Bumblebee spinoff. But after that, the future of the Transformers saga could be in for…
It’s probably greedy to stop and wonder what could make a movie like Jurassic Park—which made over a billion dollars at the box office—even more profitable. But then Hot Wheels went and revealed a new line of half-truck-half-dinosaur character cars for Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom, and suddenly a whole new avenue of…
Jurassic Park didn’t exactly tone down its violence and make its dino-stars seem like friendly petting zoo fodder, but that didn’t stop a part of me from fantasizing about one day riding a velociraptor like a mighty stallion. A fantasy that, thanks to Fisher-Price, can now be a reality for kids with this Power Wheels…
