With just over a year to go until Warner Bros.' BATMAN V. SUPERMAN: DAWN OF JUSTICE comes to theaters, there's still plenty of time to speculate just how this superhero rumble will play out. One theory that's recently hit the web comes in the form of a fan-made video by BrickFlix utilizing the ever-popular LEGO style. What does Ben Affleck (still "the bomb in PHANTOMS, yo!") have to do with this Gotham City smackdown? You'll have to watch the video and see for yourself.
Known for their limited-time offerings of just 24 hours a pop, once in awhile a shirt comes back by popular demand, and that's just what happened with "Another Brick in the Wall," a design mashing the iconic multi-colored bricks of LEGO with the title of the 1979 album and 1982 film by PINK FLOYD.
TRANSFORMERS: AGE OF EXTINCTION is rolling out to theaters this summer, but over at Sideshow Collectibles, they're paying tribute to Optimus Prime as he appeared in TRANSFORMERS: DARK OF THE MOON. The Museum Masterline Series Optimus Prime statue by Japan's Prime 1 Studios features interchangeable weapons and heads, LED light features, a cool base and more. But it's nearly $2,300.00 and limited to just 2000 pieces that are expected to ship in January of 2015. Still interested?

As MARVEL Studios' CAPTAIN AMERICA: THE WINTER SOLDIER hits theaters this weekend, the crew over at Entertainment Earth (an affiliate of this site) are celebrating with a one-week-only sale that offers 20% off all in-stock CAPTAIN AMERICA Collectibles (good through April 8), with everything from Hasbro Action Figures to Funko Pop! Heroes, clothing items and household goods up for grabs (you know you need a 'Cap glass, right?). But if you're wondering how THE WINTER SOLIDER leaves things in the Marvel Cinematic Universe ahead of the next movie, August's GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY, the upcoming toys might hold some clues.
Twenty years ago today, Dark Horse Comics released Mike Mignola's HELLBOY: SEED OF DESTRUCTION #1. The character, which first appeared in an eight-page story as part of a Dark Horse Comic-Con Special, would go on to become a true pop-culture icon celebrated by children and parents alike [Ed - perhaps a little stretch there!] spawning feature films, animation and toys. If you can make it out to a local comic shop today, you'll find that HELLBOY DAY is being celebrated with special merchandise and events (participating store list) and the release of the hardcover book, HELLBOY: THE FIRST 20 YEARS. Additionally, Sideshow Collectibles is releasing a HELLBOY Premium Format Figure this August, limited to just 1,500 pieces.
