Lots of things in this life make me happy, but a couple that happen to be pretty high on the list are: giant robots & action figures! That's why NECA's recent release of toys based on the upcoming "Pacific Rim" film, by Legendary Pictures and my favorite director Guillermo del Toro, caused my heart to practically burst from my chest with excitement! After the ensuing trip to the hospital, I contacted Randy Falk, King of NECA Toys & All Things Heavy Metal*, about the upcoming figures and the working relationship between the film-making process and the action figure madness!

Woo-Hoo! NECA has just announced a collaboration with 20th Century Fox to put out a limited set of figures celebrating classic guest stars on Fox's "The Simpsons," with Tom Hanks, Kid Rock, Hal Hefner, Yao Ming and James Brown in the first wave of 25 projected figures available in 2014.  They will have my money if the Brown figure goes, "This bandstand wasn't double-bolted!  Huh!"

But which guest-stars will make up the remaining figures in this line?

Now, what's of note is that these are guest stars playing themselves, as opposed to voicing original characters.  This is a gray and complicated area that demands deep thought, maybe.

I'm going out on a limb and saying that Mel Gibson won't get a figure, despite hanging extensively with Homer back in the day.  I am further uncertain as to whether this precludes Johnny Cash as the voice of the spirit-coyote Homer saw after eating Guatemalan insanity peppers, or John Waters as the very John Waters-esque John the kitsch-shop owner.   And what about David Duchovny and Gillian Anderson as their "X-Files" characters?  And then there's the entire issue of Michael Jackson as "Michael Jackson."

At this point, I'm very confused.

Well, look: Here's a wish-list for some of our favorites, with appropriate outfits/accessories.  Ah, memories: Read More...

As we saw at Toy Fair, NECA has a new  action figure of Sylvester Stallone as Rambo in First Blood.  At 6 ¾ inches and 25 points of articulation, it’s one of the most accurate examples of everyone’s favorite mentally-unstable victim of America’s indifference to Vietnam vets turned over-the-top action hero.  In addition, Hot Toys just posted a look at a new 1/6 scale doll of Barney Ross, Stallone's Expendables 2 character, that is the next-best thing to having Sly himself on your shelf.

These announcements led us to a realization – Sylvester Stallone has had perhaps more action figures made of the characters he’s portrayed than any other actor.  So, we decided to take a look at some of the many, many, Stallone-based toys over the years.  Some of what we found was, put bluntly, things we cannot unsee.

A few days ago, we reported that the Weinstein Company had toy manufacturer NECA pull toys of Quentin Tarantino’s film Django Unchained following complaints from the Rev. Al Sharpton’s people, which massively drove up the prices on eBay. Well, now you can’t even get them there.

TMZ reports that the “slave toys” have been pulled from eBay, who’s sent out an email to sellers saying that “Since the manufacturer of this product has discontinued the item’s sale due to its potentially offensive nature, we are not allowing it to be sold on eBay.” Read More...
