Welcome back to Toy Aisle, io9's weekly round up of all the cool toys and merch we’ve spotted on this here internet lately. This week: War Machine suits up for Figuarts’ Infinity War line, an incredibly squishy Super Mario cushion, and perhaps the most inconvenient yet still delightful way to play Ms. Pac-Man ever…
Finishing a film, and especially finishing a film that might be (if very plausible rumors are to be believed) your last outing in a long film franchise, sounds exciting, right? Doing one last big scene, putting a capper on an incredible experience.
Welcome back to Toy Aisle, io9's weekly round-up of the coolest toys we’ve seen draining our wallets for a perpetually growing list of preorders. This week: Bastion the robot gets turned into Lego! Hot Toys is making an Infinity War meme a very expensive reality! Groot gets a disturbingly detailed puppet! And more!
Greetings, little ones! It’s been a hell of a couple of weeks, so let’s open my mailbag and see what nonsense we can solace ourselves with. We’re talking the chances of the Wheel of Time series becoming a reality! The ramifications of James Gunn joining DC and Warner Bros.! And how Aquaman could survive jumping out of…
That’s my secret, Cap. I’m always spoiling.
New York Comic Con is upon us and, as usual, its aisles are filled with all kinds of nerdy merchandise and collectables. A few of our favorite poster producers are also there, and we’ve got just a handful of their offerings to share in case you can’t make it to NYC to check them out.
We often assume that Marvel’s long-term plans for characters who’ve played vital roles in the Cinematic Universe will involve them making appearances in subsequent movies, but the studio recently threw everyone for a loop when it announced a pair of upcoming television series focused on Loki and the Scarlet Witch.
Thor’s lightning-wielding, Thanos-threatening axe is quite a weapon. And these fans take the process of making it reality very seriously.
Marvel might make an Avenger out of her yet.
Useless he’s not.
Even with the help of the Guardians of the Galaxy, Earth’s Mightiest Heroes couldn’t defeat Thanos. But maybe a bloodier solution would do the trick. What if five icons of horror decided to battle the Mad Titan instead?
Hello, all! It’s your friendly neighborhood postman, except I’m not that friendly, there are no more neighborhoods since I live in the post-apocalypse, and also I’m a fake postman anyway. It’s been a year since I last answered your letters, so let’s just get to it—it being the futures of Star Wars: Episode IX,…
Fighting king, young and free, only 93.
Monique Ganderton has had an impressive career. The stunt double for Charlize Theron in Atomic Blonde, a stunt coordinator on Avengers: Infinity War, and a stunt performer in a long list of films, she’s a seasoned and respected voice in the stunt side of film.
Time already ran out. So, as the fan theories go, I guess that means it’s time to go back, huh?
The Mad Titan is intimidating, and, well, kinda sexy, whether he’s motion-capped CGI or, in this case, hand-drawn pencil art.
Read anything interesting in the news lately? No, really. I’m still catching up, because for much of the past week, I was vacationing in lovely Cook Forest, Pennsylvania, during which my access to the internet was limited to whatever stretches of 4G could be obtained amid supply runs to town. This was indeed lovely—an…
One of the most striking moments (of many) in Avengers: Infinity War is the post-credits scene. We already knew that short, dramatic sequence was shot almost entirely using CGI, and now we’ve got a much better look at how it came together.
As hyper-realistic as modern video game graphics look, the blocky, pixelated aesthetic of the 16-bit era still has a certain charm. And as animator John Stratman demonstrates with his video game de-make of Avengers: Infinity War, all those superheroes working together would have made for a fantastic side-scrolling…
Mark Ruffalo wasn’t joking.
