McFarlane Toys has added new photos for their upcoming Halo: Reach Series 5 figures and vehicles. There is a ton of Images oftoys that hit stores in November.
So what do you guys think about series 5? Is it worth buying?
Leave your comments below.
If you pre-order Battlefield 3 (PC digital download version) on Origin before September 25th, or if you have bought Medal of Honor: Limited Edition/Tier 1 Edition, you will get 48 hours early access to the Beta, meaning you can start playing Tuesday, September 27th.
For Xbox360 and Playstation 3, the Open Beta will be visible on the consoles' digital marketplaces under Battlefield 3. For PC, you need to install Origin and download the Open Beta from within the Origin application.
So are you guys going to download the beta? I know i am!
"I can't talk about it too prematurely about the stuff I'm doing because nothing has come to fruition yet, but Cube and I are talking about doing the N.W.A. story. The script is really, really good and so we're just figuring it out. New Line really wants to make it".
The project is also said to have the blessing of Eazy E's widow, Tomica Wright. She is also a producer on the project alongside Ice Cube. At this point I can't think of a better director for this film. Not just because of his past experience with "hood" movies but his friendship and long standing working relationship with Ice Cube make him the perfect candidate. What do you kids think?
Mattel announced the following news in regards to their 2012 Ghostbusters subscription service today:
You know how much love the Matty team has for Ghostbusters, and although we were ready to support a subscription in 2012, sales were lower than we expected. We regret to announce that we have to cancel the 2012 Club Ecto-1 subscription. All 2012 orders will be promptly refunded. If you purchased a 2012 subscription, you should see the refund in your account within 5-7 business days of your refund being processed, depending on your bank. All 2011 subscriptions will continue to ship as scheduled.
Like you, we're disappointed that the subscription will be going away for 2012, but to show our appreciation for you fans who stepped up and bought a 2012 subscription, we're working on a "thank you" just for you. Stay tuned as we'll have something special coming for you in appreciation for your support.
Please know that the Ghostbusters line isn't over! To do right by all Ghostbusters fans, we're still moving forward with the previously announced figures for 2012 (Ready to Believe You Peter with Taxi Cab Ghost, The Rookie, Dana as Zuul) and a fourth figure in the fall, to be announced. These figures will be available at our regular monthly sales. Like our other lines, costs have risen since the brand was launched and the price of the 6" figures will increase to $22 each.
Now on to brighter news. In celebration of the boo bustin' boys' favorite time of the year, we're going to re-release some of your favorite figures during a special Ghostbusters Halloween sale. The sale will run from 10/17 through 10/31, and it's the perfect time to fill in any missing characters in your collection and stock up on favorites. But wait… yes, there's more!

'Captain America' screenwriter Christopher Markus is now saying he wants Peter Dinklage to play MODOK as the villain in the sequel. What's your opinion of that?
[Makes a face] I mean... Ugh... I don't know. I don't know. It sounds like... heh. Heh. I don't know. I don't know. The comic book world is so dangerous, you know what I mean? You say one thing and people -- they're ravenous -- they are very opinionated fans. But they're great fans. I mean, they're the reason we make these movies. I don't know. I get asked a lot of questions about Cap' sequels and villains and I just try to stay out of it.
If he's the writer of the movie, I guess he does not have the power to just do that if he wants?
Well, he has to run everything by Kevin Feige, the president of Marvel. And Kevin Feige is a huge comic book fan, so Feige is going to say, "Here are the things we want to touch upon. These are the relationships we want to build on, this is the villain. Like, Kevin Feige will give you the chess pieces and you have to kind of put them in place, you know what I mean?
So what do you guys think? Does MODOK still have a shot at appearing on film or is there no way that the Mental Organism Designed Only for Killing will appear?
Set inside the heavily fortified walls of a sprawling district in the heart of Gotham City, it’s filled with the most murderous villains from DC Comics’ Batman universe. But Batman is ready to tackle it with all-new gadgets and his greatest—and most dangerous—allies. Which is good, because he’ll need all the help he can get for his journey into the darkest corners of Gotham.
Among those he’ll encounter:
Tim Drake battles crime as Robin, delivering punches (and signature quips) to aid in the Caped Crusader’s mission to shut down Arkham City.
In a nice new outfit, Harley Quinn has taken to the front lines to personally fulfill the Joker’s sickest wishes of mischief and mayhem. She’s not going to let anyone get in her way—least of all Batman.
Based on the upcoming blockbuster video game published by Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment, developed by Rocksteady Studios, and licensed by DC Entertainment.

Yung, a French actress best known for her role in District 13: Ultimatum, would play Jinx, a ninja that joins the Joes. The actress will also soon appear in David Fincher's The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo.
The entire cast of the original 2009 G.I. Joe: Rise of the Cobra is not slated to return, but Channing Tatum is expected to return as Duke, as is Ray Park in the role of Snake Eyes.
Though the specifics may differ in the film version, details of Jinx can be found on her original action figure file card, pictured below (courtesy of YoJoe.com).
