By Adam Pawlus — Wednesday, May 29, 2013

Did you know Mattel made a die-cast car that's compatible with LEGO figures? It's true!  The Hot Wheels Fig Rig is a new release from the company and likely at a store near you right now.  The hood has 2 studs for LEGO connections, there are two more in the truck bed, and several locations have 3mm bars on which figures can grip their hands.  And as luck would have it, a LEGO stud is the same size as the hole in most Fighter Pods figures.

NYCC: Droids, Banks, And Other Galactic Tidbits That's Not Hasbro

By Mike — Thursday, October 11, 2012

Autumn in New York is a beautiful thing. For fans of pop culture, the season brings their own east coast Comic Con.  It's Preview Day, and because it's in Mid-Town Manhattan on a Wednesday, the foot traffic was not the critical mass that San Diego normally is. For this website, not having to cover Hasbro on a show of this magnitude is a little weird, but Hasbro's absence are DC and Mattel's gain, particularly if you're a Batman fan and collector where new figures from DC Direct and Arkham City were prominent. There were some Star Wars reveals from other licensors like Kotobukiya and Diamond Select, and they're not bad at all. But Gentle Giant and Sideshow were also absent and there was  clearly less Star Wars than the show last year.
