Purveyor of some of the best cool yet expensive statues on the market right now, Sideshow Collectibles has revealed their latest video game based product.  After giving us high-end statues and maquettes of characters such as Kratos, Lara Croft, and Agent 47, Sideshow Collectibles has given us our first high-end product based on the Dead Space franchise.

Minecraft Lego Series In The Works

The Minecraft phenomenon has completely blown up now and unlike other games or fads it doesn’t look to be slowing down anytime soon. Thanks to the freedom Minecraft allows, which results in people creating versions of the weeping angels from Doctor Who, gamers are completely infatuated with everything Minecraft.  We’ve already seen some Minecraft products hit the market like foam axes, but now something truly cool and somewhat fitting could happen: a series of Lego toys based on Minecraft.

Rockstar Games Releases The First Major GTA Figure

 

I may only be a young 25 year-old chap, but I feel incredibly old since Grand Theft Auto III is officially ten years old.  It seemed like yesterday when I was roaming the streets of Liberty City listening to classical music or Lazlow while evading the cops or merely seeing how many pedestrians I could run over on my way to the stunt ramp near the train tracks.  GTAIII was a game that essentially spawned a whole era of games and it’s definitely an all-time classic.

WB Games Finally Reveals First Series Of Figures For Batman: Arkham City

With Batman: Arkham City finally coming out next month that means we’re finally going to see the first of many tie-in products for the game. Based on the runaway success Batman: Arkham Asylum received and the general fandom for all things Batman related, Warner Brothers is pushing Batman: Arkham City as far as they can and that of course means we’re getting action figures based on the Dark Knight’s latest adventure.

Zone of the Enders Returns To The Merch Arena Once More Thanks To Kotobukiya

We have yet another cool development on the video game memorabilia front as Kotobukiya are spinning their magic once more but this time it’s for Zone of the Enders.  Gamers who either have deep pockets or love to be poor yet have nice things should be familiar with Kotobukiya as they’ve produced a series of amazing video game statues in the past for properties Batman: Arkham City, Tekken and Shadow of the Colossus, the latter of which I owned a statue of before it be

NECA Reveals Their First Series Of Products Based On Valve's Video Games

Valve is a company that has an extensive roster of franchises with enough unique characters that people desperately want whatever type of merchandise they can featuring those characters.  Unlike other video game companies, Valve hasn’t opted to delve into the video game merchandise front in a huge way as they’ve only featured small things in the past like limited edition statues or highly cute plush Companion Cubes.

Sony Reveals A Plethora Of New Uncharted Tie-In Products (Awesome News For Toy Collectors)

As if the San Diego Comic couldn’t become an even bigger show for video game news and general goodness, Sony has revealed several major Uncharted related products that will debut at the show this week. Aside from Uncharted 3: Drake’s Deception being playable on the showfloor and an Uncharted panel with key talent from the game happening on Friday, Sony will be debuting several cool new Uncharted products with an array of partners ranging from collectible manufacturers and comic book companies.

Anime Art Styles + Tekken + Provocative Poses = Possibily Awesome Tekken Statues

Tekken may be one of the most popular and well known video game franchises in the world, but for some reason its multi-media reach just hasn’t quite been what it could be.  It’s only just now after nearly sixteen years that we’re possibly getting a good Tekken movie with the forthcoming release of Tekken: Blood Vengeance and we’re also finally getting proper Tekken figures/statues as well.

Bioshock Is Reimagined In Lego Form

Long before I “grew” up and became an adult I played with Legos a lot as a kid.  I may still maintain some of my childlike tendencies but they’ve mostly been modified in a way since I now buy highly expensive replicas/statues of comic book, cartoon, or video game characters instead of buying the complete line of X-Men action figures to hang in my room.  I don’t know why Lego’s lost their immediate appeal to me, but I think it may be because they’re a tad expensive (the Lego Death Star is $300) and I simply have no space for such delicate structures.

MGS Collectors Ought To Take Note Of This New Kojima Tease

Being a gamer and an overall geek, I like to collect cool action figures or statues of popular video game characters I like.  Having laid down $260 on the Sideshow Collectibles Kratos statue, I find myself having to lessen my budget for somewhat superfluous things like picking up a Ratchet & Clank figure but I can only hope this tease of a Metal Gear Solid figure isn’t in the $100+ category.
