Marvel Announces Films Schedule into 2019

We can't be every where, so on days like this, we are glad we have folks like Steve "Frosty" Weintraub from Collider sitting front and center when a load of Marvel news is being dropped on press and fans alike at the El Capitan theater in Hollywood. The event kicked off with the chill inducing trailer for Avengers: Age of Ultron, which showed the union between Marvel and Disney could birth the creepiest covers of Disney animated movie songs imaginable as "I Got No Strings" echoed out over scenes of chaos and ...basically people screaming or fighting for their lives. AWESOME!

A Look Inside Disney's INTO THE WOODS

It's getting so any Disney release these days is a major event, and with our readers eating up every bit of info on each film launch, it is well warranted! Recently, the stars of Into The Woods showed off their movie looks across the internet. Now, we get a peek inside the film with plenty of gorgeous visuals and music that will make your heart go all mushy..and Johnny Depp who looks ready to sing "Is You Is Or Is You Ain't My Baby"...

“Into the Woods” is a modern twist on several of the beloved Brothers Grimm fairy tales, intertwining the plots of a few choice stories and exploring the consequences of the characters’ wishes and quests. This humorous and heartfelt musical follows the classic tales of Cinderella (Anna Kendrick), Little Red Riding Hood (Lilla Crawford), Jack and the Beanstalk (Daniel Huttlestone), and Rapunzel (MacKenzie Mauzy), all tied together by an original story involving a Baker and his Wife (James Corden and Emily Blunt), their wish to begin a family and their interaction with the Witch (Meryl Streep), who has put a curse on them.

Quantum Mechanix Cutifies The Ghostbusters

In a world where ANYTHING can be cutified by the all powerful cutification rays of Funko, turning all manor of our childhood dreams into Pop! Vinyl Figures, one company would dare step forward and shout "WE CAN MAKE THAT EVEN CUTER!!" Funko had tackled the boys in grey a short time back, and now Quantum Mechanix put their stamp on our beloved Ghostbusters in a format that will have you throwing money at the screen...

Peter Venkman, PhD, may be a hedonist and an incessant womanizer. But his extroversion and gift of gab provide the Ghostbusters with leadership and very dry humor.

NYCC 2014: The LEGO Bionicle Mystery

We here at Idle Hands do our very best to shoot a little bit of everything among the thousands of pictures we blast at any given event. Some of the things we shoot, we know will be a big hit, and so we go to great lengths to cover every inch of it. Other things, we are just making sure you see all the awesome, grab one shot of everything as we slide through, and move along as fast as we can. Of course LEGO was on our "To-Do" list for the show, but when we dropped by and only saw a giant LEGO mask, we shot it and moved along. ......20 thousand views later...

We assumed you LEGO freaks already knew everything coming from your favorite company for the next year, and so we certainly didn't think a mask would drive you to new lengths of happy...but it did, and we are proud to have participated in said happy. Yesterday we doubled back and found our mysterious yellow mask had some little friends, so we shot the holy hell out of them. Here are the goods...

NYCC 2014: MEGA Bloks Get Despicable Me 2

This would be one of those times when I'm going...mayyyybe this is news...and mayyyybe this isn't..but it's surely the first time I've heard of it so chances are, a lot of you didn't know either. Alongside Spongebob Squarepants sets that have been out for months and HALO stuffs that COULD be new but hell, it all looks the same to me, were some brilliant Despicable Me 2 construction sets from our buds at MEGA. How cool are they? One of the sets had the whole desk on fire scene. You could practically hear the beedo's coming from the lil guy's mouth. Adorkable. Check it out...

NYCC 2014: McFarlane's Next Walking Dead Action Figure Waves

New York Comic Con is at an odd time of year when companies are pitching all their new toys for the foreseeable future to retailers across the globe, but a lot of their releases have already been revealed at San Diego Comic-Con. This means a lot of what you see at NYCC has already been seen..with some exceptions. McFarlane is pushing their construction toy lineup hardcore at the show, dominating most of their display cases. We don't really shoot the sports stuff because..sports..and we've seen the Assassin's Creed and HALO stuff before. That leaves us to pour over the Walking Dead display to see if there is something new we can drool over. SCORE.

NYCC 2014: NECA Doesn't Disappoint: Aliens, Apes, Terminators, Robocops, Kaiju & More

NECA. How do we set up NECA? We say "Hold onto your butts",..which of course makes me think of Jurrasic Park and how much NECA would KILL IT on that line!!  Let's cross our fingers that they get some sort of license when the new movie hits. FOR NOW..we suggest the butt holding due to extreme awesome headed your way via an all star lineup from the masters of the 7 inch action figure...and we expected no less. We've got Aliens, Planet of the Apes, Horror, Terminator vs Robocop, Pacific Rim, HALO and  mooore. Rather than spend time listing things you clearly know about (mostly from San Diego Comic Con and...you know..the world..), I thought we'd just jump right into the eye candy. Shall we? Yes, have some!

NYCC 2014: Pop Culture Shock Collectibles Debuts Statues from DC Comics, Judge Dredd, Mortal Kombat & More

It's TIME!!! As folks que up in a massive line outside of New York Comic Con, we thought we'd sit back and show you folks at home (who get to keep your sanity) what's awaits the hordes of geeks! Pop Culture Shock Collectibles is nestled at the very hard of toy central in this year's show, boasting neighbors like Mezco and Kotobukiya. Best street ever! This year's showing includes further expansion of known lines and a couple of surprises that will make your eyes instantly explode inside your cranium...so beware..you've been warned...

NYCC 2014: Attack on Titan Getting Plenty of Love


Peeking around every corner of New York Comic Con 2014, certain things become instantly clear. 1. Anime/Manga isn't dropping off in popularity here in the states AT ALL. 2. Among those wide eyes, screaming characters, the troubled citizens who populate Attack on Titan are well represented. As we bounced from booth to booth, we saw many a flying harness and winged jacket...which we are perfectly fine with, as this show rules. Let's check out the goods...
