Mimoco celebrated Presidents’ Day by releasing a pair of USB Flash Drives from their Legends of MIMOBOT collection. George Washington and Abraham Lincoln are here to store all of your important files. The George Washington MIMOBOT is a hand-numbered limited edition of just 1,000 pieces. No word on how limited Honest Abe is. Both MIMOBOTs [...]

If you like bears and hate pants, then RhymeSquare's BearAll resin figures might be to your liking. The little 2-inch figures, cast by Tru:Tek from Man-E-Toys, will be getting a new variant this week, the chocolate brown Grizzly edition. True to their name, they bear all, but more so in a humorous way than a crude one.
Grizzly BearAll will go on sale Friday, Feb. 22, at noon GMT (7 a.m. Eastern, 4 a.m. Pacific) for £14 at RhymeSquare's shop. The previous Polar BearAlls reportedly sold quick, according to RhymeSquare, so you may want to set your alarm clocks appropriately if you want one.
It turns out I’ve been hoarding a fun project and not sharing it directly with all of my readers. It just hit me that there are 8 wonderful printables waiting for you over at the Neighborhood, and I forgot to let you know. How miserly of me! We’ve been creating these lovely little homes so [...]
Thanks to Unique Toys who have released new images of the War Bull from the Beasticons War Lord action figure line. This is the the figure that pays homage to the Generation 1 Horri-Bull character in a whole new way. See the images of the prototype War Bull (Horri-Bull) from their upcoming Beasticon set that will be a combiner team that is an ultimate remake of the Predakind combiner. Check out the images below for the full details.
Duffy the Disney Bear's popularity continues to grow as his influence begins to stretch outside the Disney Parks and into retail stores. Both physical Disney Stores and the Disney Store Online are carrying the famous bear in sizes you aren't going to find at Disneyland or Disney World. Duffy can now be found as a 8, 12, 24, and 36 inch tall plush (costing US$10, US$20, US$40, and US$100 respectively) as well as part of a set with Mickey, where the two are both wearing the same sailor outfits found in their picture book from the Parks. The Mickey and Duffy combo can be found as either a 17 inch tall plush, costing US$30, or 25 inch tall plush, costing US$60.
All of the Duffy plushes are currently available. Plush fans have little excuse for not owning one of these high quality plushes now. What do you think of these new releases?

Before Claire Redfield, Elza Walker Was Resident Evil 2’s Female Star
Prior to the Resident Evil 2 that we all know and love, Capcom had all but finished a completely different version of the game before scrapping it and starting over. That unfinished version has come to be known as Resident Evil 1.5.
Not much is known about Elza Walker aside from the facts that she likes motorcycles and attended Raccoon City University (sidenoted: Raccoon City University should totally be the next game in the RE franchise). Just like Claire Redfied, Elza’s support character was Sherry, but she also had another support character: Robert Kendo - the owner of the gun shop at the very beginning of RE2!
Taking a look at the concept art above, it’s easy to see how Elza’s design slowly changed into Claire Redfield. It even looks like they just reskinned her character model for the final game.
Check 10 minutes of footage from Resident Evil 1.5 below. Watching it feels like witnessing something from the alternate universe in Fringe.
While the police station looks completely different, it looks like most of the Umbrella lab stuff made it to the final version of the game. I wonder what happened to those zombie gorillas and mutant spider men though.
With all the hype around HD re-releases, there could actually be a market for unreleased beta games like this. I can honestly say I’d pay around $40 for a copy of RE 1.5 that I could play on my PS3 or Vita, and there’s plenty of fans out there who would say the same. I just wonder if it would even be worth the effort for Capcom to polish the game off for digital retail.
Think about it, Capcom. Think about it.
The recent 2013 TOY FAIR just keeps popping-up a lot of fun cool surprises! Here's a great example, the Toy Company FUNKO has plans to bring out a bunch of new Batman Toys, Figures, Wacky Wobblers, etc... for 2013 and now we get some pics of a whole new product called "Can-tivities".
Basically, they're small tin tubes in the shape of cartoon characters that you can store fun stuff in. Here are some prototype pics of their JUSTICE LEAGUE SET they have plans to release later ( no exact date known right now ).
The Company is being super hush-hush about it but we did get news that their IRONMAN 3 MOVIE Tins will be released in March and they have also shown us what comes inside those tins, sort of a "school supply" kind of thing ( see pic down below ). The JLA ones say they are more of a "treat thing" so maybe they'll be candy. Hmm, stay tuned to the Bat-Blog and once we know more, you know more.
Following the DR WU DW-P38C is the DW-P38U Gun Accessory this time in the Transformers Classics colors that pay homage to Megatron's alternate gun mode in the original colors. No details on a release date yet, but we expect this guy to sell for around $8 USD like the DW-P38C did. check out the image below for the full reveal.
Here are some more fun pics from the 2013 TOY FAIR sent in by our friend Dave Campbell. Last year FUNKO sort of introduced a new line of Papercraft toys. They were all mostly individual figures but this year they plan to expand the line and bring us diorama play sets.
Check out this one of the BAT-CAVE!! It features different rooms of Wayne Manor and the Batcave too. It even comes with a cool Batmobile car! These are sort of like Model Kits or Craft Kits where you have to put them together...Hey, these sound pretty fun! (Click on these pics here for larger, more detailed photos ).
Disney Store Exclusive Peter Pan Minimates
It has been quite a few years since we have seen the release of Peter Pan as a full length movie – 60 years to be exact. Now with the release of...

A new friend to the Bat-Blog, a guy named Dave Campbell, was nice enough to share some fun photos he took at the recent 2013 TOY FAIR. While there he got these great pics of a brand-new BATMAN toy that will be made by LEGO TOYS. It's a DC Superheroes BATMAN Board Game!!
Basically, it's a Board Game made from Lego Pieces that, I guess, you build it as the game progresses?? I totally love the cool graphics on the box lid. It also comes with a ton of tiny little figures of Batman, Robin, Batgirl, Nightwing, Joker, Two-Face, Mr. Freeze, and the Riddler!
Whoops, almost forgot to mention. This game will have a retail price of about $29.99 and will be released in August 2013. Also, they plan on having TV Commercials for this thing starting in July.
Hotline Miami Coming To PS3 & Vita This Spring
Hellz yeah! The ultra-violent, synth-pulsating, schizophrenic PC indie game from two-man team Dennation Games is making it’s way to PlayStation Network this spring.
In case you’re not familiar with Hotline Maimi, prepare to get your balls/ovaries rocked in twain by the live-action trailer below.
It seems like the blind box craze sort of slowed down in 2012. We didn't review nearly the amount as previous years. And some series that were previously released blind-boxed have recently gone to the open front model. Nonetheless, here are five of our favorite blind box series of 2012... 5. The Big Bang (Dudebox) [...]
Disney has released a new line of dolls to tie in with the film, Oz the Great and Powerful.
The house from “My Neighbor Totoro” really exists! Artist Martin Hsu had an opportunity to visit Satsuki and Mei’s house and has shared photos from his visit on his blog. The post also includes information on Ghibli gift shops he … Continue reading →
Whenever I see a cool background on a website, I immediately try to find a way to download it. Here are two I pulled off Mattycollector – one is the background for the ad for the Filmation sub, and I can’t remember where I found the other one. They might make for some cool diorama [...]
