If Iron Man Was A Monster High Doll. And Also A Woman.

The proportions on this Monster High version of Iron Man are obviously a bit drastic, but then, so are all Monster High dolls. Chris Hooton (aka Sabretooth) modified a standard retail release to create this Monster High Avenger he dubbed “Iron Girl.” Something tells me, if Marvel actually made a merchandising deal with Mattel, these would sell like hot cakes. But for now, click ahead to find out how much this one sold for on Ebay.

Hot Toys’ Black Widow, For All Your Tiny Scarlett Johansson Needs

Another Marvel movie, another selection of eerily realistic action figures from Hot Toys, this time with everyone’s favorite product of the Cold War, Black Widow. She even comes with lit-up Widows Bite gauntlets, the better to pose her electrocuting my Lex Luthor action figure. Or jumpstarting my Portal turret.

Oh who am I kidding, I can’t afford this figure, so, like you, I will be gazing at these scarily accurate pictures of it instead.

The Women Of Star Wars Rebels: First Impressions Count

We’re inching closer to the fall premiere of Star Wars Rebels. This fan is incredibly excited for the animated series that will be the first on-screen representation of the formidable Lucasfilm and Disney combination. The primary group of protagonists were recently introduced in a series of videos and articles over the past two weeks, and toys based on some of those characters were unveiled at the New York Toy Fair. I was pleased to learn two of the five members of the main cast are females. I’m less thrilled those two characters, Sabine and Hera, were the last two to be introduced, and Hasbro isn’t including them in their first wave of figures for Star Wars Rebels.

It feels like a slap in the face.

We Took Pictures Of Everything At Toy Fair 2014 (Basically)

Toy Fair – two innocent words that simultaneously conjure up feelings of excitement and disappointment in a single moment. Excitement at all the wonderful new toys being announced; disappointment that you can’t take them home with you right away! This year’s fair was no exception – 2014 is going to be a great year for toys and collectibles. Take a look at just a small portion of what we saw at the big show this year. And by “small portion,” we mean, “97 photos.”

First Official Firefly Action Figures Are a Bit… Weird

Mal, that’s a pretty significant… head… and face… you’ve got going on there. But before you all get up in arms, the action figures are deliberate homages to the proportions and articulation of Kenner’s ubiquitous Star Wars line, right down to the packaging.

What Does the Girl in the Most Internet Famous Vintage Lego Ad Think About Them Now?

This 1981 advertisement for Lego sets has been given a renewed life in the reaction to Lego’s Friends line, a line of Lego products that remain the only ones marketed expressly at girls, with minifigures that are incompatible with other Lego products. Apparently this mostly passed by Rachel Giordano, the thirty-seven year old naturopathic doctor who was once the little girl featured in the ad. Women You Should Know.net tracked Giordano down to interview her and recreate the photo with a modern Friends set (a news caster van thats interior contains, not broadcasting equipment, but a makeup vanity).

Man Repaints Catching Fire Katniss Barbie So It Looks Exactly Like Jennifer Lawrence

We posted the spectacular Noel Cruz’s work before. He has a knack for turning what are terribly disappointing depictions of actors’ doll counterparts and creating what could almost be a mirror image. His latest masterpiece? Jennifer Lawerence’s Katniss Everdeen. Check out a few more shots and find out how you can own it after the jump.
