Hasbro’s ‘Thor: Ragnarok’ Figures Help You Build a Better Hulk
Casting Cate Blanchett in just about anything makes it worth watching, but when you put her in the helm of the baddest lady in Asgard, all. Bets. Are. Off.

Before the Justice League teams up this fall, you'll be able to catch them working hard to stop Darkseid's forces in a new DC Super Heroes collection from Lego.

Hot Toys‘ ’Spider-Man: Homecoming‘ Figures Do Whatever a Spider Can
The action figure world has no shortage of Spider-Man toys, as the webslinger has been on shelves continually since the Mego era in the ‘70s. However, not all Spider-toys are created equal. For every figure you wouldn't mind your kid taking into the bath or on a play date, there is an opposing iteration that you’d rather keep secured in a windowed display case that children under the age of eight would have a hard time opening. That former category are the kind of Spider-Man figures these new Hot Toys pieces fall under.

‘Star Wars Battlefront II’ Gives Us Our First Look at Rey and Kylo Ren’s New ‘Last Jedi’ Looks
For all the hype surrounding Star Wars: The Last Jedi in the past month, we still haven’t seen very much in the way of new looks for our favorite characters. Nearly every shot of the trailer and officially sanctioned image from Lucasfilm has shown heroes like Rey and Finn and villains like Phasma and Kylo Ren as we saw them last in The Force Awakens. Aside from new toy packaging and the rare t-shirt design, there hasn’t even been very little headway into different haircuts for these characters. That changes today however, due largely to Star Wars Battlefront II’s pre-order materials. Thanks to Gamestop, we now have a bit of an idea what Rey and Kylo Ren will look like in the upcoming eighth episode of the Star Wars saga proper.
