McFarlane Toys Announces “Collector’s Club Resin Program”

McFarlane Toys announced during Todd McFarlane’s panel at New York Comic-Con 2011 that the company is launching the new “Collector’s Club Resin Program”.

In a similar vein as the various collector’s club like Matty Collector or Hasbro’s GI Joe Club, this new program will bring fans arguably some of McFarlane’s coolest statues ever and feature franchise properties with worldwide name recognition including Spawn, Haunt and The Walking Dead comics, along with star players from the NFL, MLB, NHL and NBA. The program will kick off with a “Spawn: The Beginning” statue (either signed or unsigned) during the holidays, followed by a “Kingdoms of Amalur: Reckoning” Prismere Troll and Haunt statue in spring 2012.

No prices were officially announced for this program, nor official dates of release for any of the statues other than the vague timeline of “the holidays”, but most likely that should mean this November’s “Black Friday”. Log on to the Spawn store for details and info for purchasing these once they become available.

G.I. Joe Collector’s Club reveals first-half of exclusive figures for 2012

Hasbro has unveiled the first five figures in their G.I. Joe Collector’s Club, which is basically like Matty Collector’s various lines of adult collectibles, except that Hasbro is actually giving us all the details up front rather than forcing us to wait. Enough bitterness, let’s talk some toys!

The first five figures consist of Joe’s Topside, Grunt, and Quarrel, and Cobra’s Dice and Nano-B.A.T. Each 3 3/4 inch figure comes with a venerable buttload of accessories, as is customary with GI Joe’s. Rumored to follow this is Iron Klaw (from the short-lived “GI Joe Extreme” cartoon), Jinx, Barrel Roll, Big Boa, Cover Girl, Sure Fire, and one as of yet unidentified character. The only way to get your hands on any of these figures is to join the GI Joe Club, which includes a subscription to a collector’s magazine, as well as access to the mysterious 13th figure. Prices vary for different options, so check it out now if you are interested.

UPDATE: Jinx and Iron Klaw have both been officially announced on GI Joe Club’s official site, and I am now more tempted than ever to join this subscription to get my hands on them!

Hatch a Face-Hugger in your beverage with “Aliens” ice cube trays

Kotobukiya, makers of awesome nerdy ice trays such as Han Solo in Carbonite from “Star Wars” (“Empire Strikes Back” if you want to get technical, and I am sure you do), are now releasing “Alien” ice trays. The trays come in the shape of the xenomorph’s head, as well as the eggs that hatch the infamous face-huggers.

The egg tray holds five ice shapes (since they really are not cubes at all), while the head tray holds six. Each have an oversized shape as well for larger cups. Each one will cost about $10 USD, and will officially be sold in February, 2012, so get your pre-orders in now!
