Beetlejuice, Beetlejuice, Beetlejuice!

The ghost with the most, a poltergeist prankster with lethal gags. And now a kickass action figure as well, who has clearly managed to recover his normal head-size since the first flick ended.

Ironhide wants to know if you’re feelin’ lucky, punk

An Autobot who watched way too many Clint Eastwood movies in an attempt to familiarise himself with our planet? I like this Autobot. I like him a lot.

Even at sixth scale, Bruce Lee could still kick your ass

Bruce Lee’s early death created a legend, a mythical aura around him that transcended his actual abilities. A tale of a man who would study poetry and philosophy,and then apply those lessons to punching people in the face for kicks. And really, what better way is there to be remembered, than as a person who was bigger than life itself?

Starscream, you have not failed me this time

There’s something appealing about the insect-like design process of the movie Transformers, that makes them more memorable to me. And it must have been an absolute nightmare to recreate that look, in a smaller replica scale form. ThreeA toys has their own Starscream on the way. Check him out.

For many people, the 1984 T-800 is their Terminator. It’s just a pity that only so much of that Terminator is still intact. HASTA LA VISTA, BABY.

Judge Dredd’s Lawmaster is yours…if you can ever get it to work

Mega blocks. Mega highways. Mega City One. Convulsing. Choking. Breaking under its own weight. Citizens in fear of the street. The gun. The gang. Only one thing fighting for order in the chaos: the men and women of the Hall of Justice. Juries. Executioners. Judges. And on bitchin’ awesome motorcycles as well.

Finally, a life-size Alien egg and Facehugger playset

What are you buying your pals for Christmas this year? Books? DVDs? Knives? BOOOOOOORING! Real gifts need to be awesome. Real gifts need to show that you’ve put some thought into them. Real gifts need to be perfect organisms, devoted simply to survival. Perfection. And I have just the gift for any of you who happen to have watched any of the Alien movies one too many times.
