Here's our look at some of the coolest toy news of the past week!

THERE ARE PROBABLY DRUG ADDICTIONS CHEAPER THAN MASTERPIECE TRANSFORMERSBig Bad Toy Store has pre-orders for new Takara Masterpiece Transformers, including Bumblebee and Wheeljack!  I still await Galvatron, or at least an Hasbro-issued US Megatron I can afford.

NO, THEY DON'T RUN AT YOU SUPER-FAST: Speaking of Big Bad Toy Store, if you enjoy "World War Z" this weekend, there's pre-orders available for Jazwares' action figures from the film...no, they don't have pics of the figure based on Brad Pitt's Gerry Lane.  That might be the first Brad Pitt figure in history.  Such an age it is we live in!

Here's a roundup of some of the best toy news of the past week!

THE BANKING DEAD!: Entertainment Weekly has a first look at the new "Walking Dead" Rick Grimes bust bank, though what good is money in a world overrun by Walkers?  Perhaps it could be used to contain batteries, or medicine, or something.  Y'know, it never pays to think too much about that series.

There’s more merchandise coming out for Marvel’s “Iron Man 3” than any sane person can keep track of – but no one ever said MTV Geek was sane.

Here’s some highlights that were recently announced – plenty of iron (or plastic painted to look like iron) for fans of all ages! Read More...

Nothing brings a room together quite like an incredibly bloated corpse. Now, thanks to Gentle Giant Ltd., all your decorating troubles are over with the release of the Well Walker Mini Bust based on the water-contaminating scamp seen in season 2 of AMC's "The Walking Dead"! To offset the undead menace, G.G. is also releasing Rick Grimes, sporting his police uniform as seen in season 1 of the show. He's also aiming his revolver-- y'know, the one he used to blow that little girl's head off in the first few minutes of the very first episode.

Gentle Giant Ltd. recently showed off some exclusives that would be available only during the 2012 San Diego Comic-Con International-- but we didn't show them to you. No sir (or ma'am), we waited, because we had the sneaking suspicion they were holding something back, and were they ever! Three more items were revealed over the weekend to Gentle Giant's Premier Guild Members (which you need to be in order to pre-order the exclusives), so today we're bringing you coverage on the entire lot of incredibly sculpted goodness! Star Wars, Marvel, Mars Attacks, and even Pan's Labyrinth are represented, so there's something for almost anyone's taste in collectibles.

In today's economy, it's all about value. Well, Gentle Giant Ltd. is inadvertently bringing Marvel Comics fans a huge deal with the announcement of their latest Mini Bust: Moon Knight! Sure, it might look like just one legless vigilante, but readers know that this is so much more thanks to Moon Knight's struggle with fully-developed multiple personalities. That's right, when you buy Moon Knight you also get Mark Spector, Steven Grant, & Jake Lockley. But wait, there's more! With the revelations in the latest 12-issue comic book run from Brian Bendis and Alex Maleev, you'll also have the imaginary personas of Wolverine, Captain America, Spider-Man, and (latecomer) Iron Man! That's a whole lotta crazy for one collectible!

The styling for this Moon Knight Mini Bust is based on his original werewolf-hunting days, back when times were simpler and he hadn't found out that a time-traveling Hawkeye invented his weaponry in ancient Egypt. Yeah, that last bit is totally true. Comic history is a fun, and beloved, convoluted mess-- just like Moon Knight! Read on for all the info on this bust, along with a photo gallery.

Stormtroopers and zombies normally have very little in common-- other than they're non-existent ability to properly aim firearms. However, Gentle Giant Ltd. has decided that, much like chocolate and peanut butter, the Empire's grunts and undead hordes are two great tastes that taste great together! That's right, the latest statue from Gentle Giant's Star Wars line up is none other than the Death Trooper! The shambling clones first appeared in the Random House novel, Death Troopers which introduced a horror slant to a galaxy far, far away; and now you can bring these soldiers very, very close!

With Marvel Comics' "The Avengers" hitting theaters in a matter of weeks, it's only fitting that we take time to remember The Ultimates; whose updated sensibilities about the Avengers team (and making Nick Fury the spitting image of Samuel L. Jackson)helped bring about the look of the modern superhero in film. As always, what better way to remember anything and everything related to superheroes than with collectibles?! Gentle Giant Ltd. knows what we're talking about, and has just announced a jaw-droppingly incredible statue based on Captain America's WWII style in the pages of The first Ultimates mini-series! Not only is this a full body statue of the Star-Spangled Avenger, but he's also straddling a military version of another American symbol: a Harley Davidson! Do we want this? Yes. When do we want it? Yesterday! Sadly, it's not scheduled for release until the tail-end of 2012. Read More...

"Sucker Punch", as with all Zach Snyder films, was visually impressive; from the robot-infested bullet trains to the trenches of zombie warfare, and the castle spires of a dragon's abode. However, one of the all-around greatest hallucinations to come out of Baby Doll's mind was that of a massive samurai warrior brandishing a minigun and ripping bullets throughout a burning dojo-- before Baby killed it, of course. Now Gentle Giant Ltd. is bringing that mind-blowing badassery to the masses with their latest statue release: The Sucker Punch Colossal Samurai with Minigun Statue! with a title that long, you just know it's gonna be good!

Read on for all the details, along with plenty of photos!

The final scene in the Game of Thrones season 1 finale was unforgettable. Seeing Daenerys Targaryen emerge with her newly hatched dragons in hand was just the coolest thing that could have happened and now we can relive that moment for years to come thanks to this awesome Daenerys Targaryen bust from Dark Horse and HBO.

As the Avengers merchandise continues it's inevitable path towards oversaturation, Gentle Giant Ltd. brings us a couple of high quality busts featuring Iron Man and Hawkeye in their classic comic book looks from their first appearances on the hallowed team. We were especially interested in the Hawkeye bust coming equipped with a ton of different trick arrows that can be put into his quiver or displayed for the world to see.

While Deadpool probably makes a pretty penny on the mercenary circuit, we imagine merchandising helps to support his rampant taco/chimichanga habit, and it looks like our friends over at Gentle Giant Ltd. are his enablers! That's right, today we're looking at two awesome pieces of Merc-With-A-Mouth-Merchandise that will go great on any shelf or office desk: a Deadpool Mini-Bust and that grotesquely-amazing pencil cup.

So I started my day off Star Wars, as always, and sat in on the Star Wars collectibles panel at New York Comic Con! Chris Spitale from Lucasfilm Licensing showed us what's up and coming from companies such as Kotobukiya, Gentle Giant, Sideshow Collectibles, EFX Collectibles, Funko Blox, ThinkGeek and Comic Images.

Woodsy and Chris Spitale!

Kotobukiya has a bunch of statues coming out, including Commander Cody, Obi-Wan, Yoda, Clone Trooper, droid packs, and Darth Maul from The Phantom Menace with a lightsaber and up to 18 different poses.
