Yes. I do realize that I always say that any toy that rolls out of Hot Toys is “the greatest action figure ever made”, but in this case, IT’S TRUE! Hot Toys has just rolled out three insanely awesome collectibles all from the iconic film, RoboCop! There will be a total of three amazing releases starting with:

RoboCop 1:6 scale “Die-Cast Movie Masterpiece Series” Action Figure

Part Man. Part Machine. All Cop. From the 1987 classic, RoboCop, Sideshow Collectibles is proud to introduce Hot Toys’ RoboCop MMS Diecast Sixth Scale Figure. The newest addition to Hot Toys MMS Diecast series is specially designed with diecast material for greater realism. The MMS Diecast series brings fans a higher level of authenticity, focusing on materials, fine details and engineering.
The movie-accurate RoboCop MMS Diecast Sixth Scale Figure is highly detailed, featuring a newly sculpted body, metallic black, grey and silver armor, and interchangeable lower faces. RoboCop speaks six memorable quotes from the film, allowing fans to recreate their favorite scenes.

RoboCop with “Mechanical Chair” 1:6 scale “Die-Cast Movie Masterpiece Series” Action Figure

From the 1987 classic, RoboCop, Sideshow Collectibles is proud to introduce Hot Toys’ RoboCop MMS Diecast Sixth Scale Figure, featuring RoboCop’s mechanical chair from the Metro West maintenance chamber.

ED-209 1:6 scale “Die-Cast Movie Masterpiece Series” Action Figure

Sideshow Collectibles is proud to present Hot Toys’ ED-209 Sixth Scale Figure, from the 1987 classic, Robocop. The movie-accurate ED-209 is highly detailed featuring a newly sculpted body, interchangeable battle damaged arm, and improved articulation in the arms, legs and claws to better simulate the enforcement droid’s movements. The ED-209 MMS Sixth Scale Figure speaks three memorable quotes along with various sound effects from the film.

I have to admit that the best part of these releases are that these suckers will be die-cast and not made of cheap plastic. On top of that, Hot Toys is now venturing into adding electronic sounds and voices into their collectibles. All that just might be the reason that these RoboCop figures will set up back $300-$450 each. However, I’m guessing these will be a worthy investment for any RoboCop lover.

Where to preorder:
RoboCop Die-Cast MMS
RoboCop with Mechanical Chair Die-Cast MMS
ED-209 Die-Cast MMS

Following the great success of their Princess Bride inspired wine collection, Alamo Drafthouse is back with their newest selection inspired by the classic thriller, The Silence of the Lambs! The collection will feature:

Suit Yourself Pinot Grigio
“Suit Yourself Pinot Grigio” is a 2012 vintage with a mixture of fruit from California’s Central Coast and inland vineyards. It offers a lush bouquet of tangerine and orange blossom. The palate starts with a crisp entry and a velvety mouth feel that bursts into flavors of tropical peach and Mexican limes with just a hint of honey, leading to a zesty, citrus-laced finish.

The Cannibal Chianti
“The Cannibal Chianti” is a DOCG wine from a vineyard situated between Florence and Sienna. It is a blend of 85% Sangiovese, balanced with smaller contributions of Canaiolo and Malvasia del Chianti. The nose is loaded with dark berry fruit with bass notes of allspice and baked quince. Its mouth feel is medium-bodied and well balanced, with savory plum and tobacco leaf notes leading to a slight sandalwood finish.

As a fan of fruity wines, I have to say that the Pinot Grigio has my attention, but you can’t really be a true boss like Hannibal without the chianti. Each bottle will cost you 32 bucks each or you can get the limited edition “Lecter’s Package” for $75 which includes a special recipe guide, fava beans, and a bottle of lotion for you to rub onto your skin. Yeah.

Where to buy: Personal Wine

How badly do you want these Portal 2 action figures? Admit it. You would knock over a bank for these beauties. ThreeA Toys will be releasing two amazing one-sixth scale action figures of Atlas and P-body. Each of these rad bots “features a light-up optical sensor and light-up handheld Portal Device”. There’s no pricing info yet, but expect your favorite toy source to start taking pre-orders later this month. I recommend you drop the booze because you’re going to want to raise the value of your kidneys to get one of these (or both).

One of the most highly anticipated films of 2013 has to be Guillermo del Toro’s Pacific Rim. When it comes to robots and monsters, you know there will be toys involved.
