Pre-Order An Awesome (And Expensive) Psycho Mantis Statue

"You like Castlevania, don't you?" Well, then you're in the wrong place. But if you like Metal Gear Solid and its creepiest villain, then you should check out First 4 Figures' new Psycho Mantis statue.

The normal figure looks great, but it also has a separate optic camouflage edition. Each one will set you back about $525, but as you can see from the video below, that money gets you a pretty sweet-looking representation of Psycho Mantis.

Pre-orders are open now through September 18, so that gives you some time to save up.

David Hayter Joins Metal Gear Film Director's Celebration Of The Series' Anniversary

David Hayter Joins Metal Gear Film Director's Celebration Of The Series' Anniversary

Update: Director Jordan Vogt-Roberts (Kong: Skull Island) is trying his best to get his Metal Gear movie off the ground, and as part of that concerted effort, he has been celebrating the series' 31st anniversary by sharing his favorite fan art and creating videos with the game's voice cast.

Recently, he released a codec conversation with David Hayter, the voice of Solid Snake in every Metal Gear Solid game, except for Ground Zeroes and The Phantom Pain. Listening to the dialogue, it's pretty clear that David Hayter (as Solid Snake), himself an accomplished film maker having written movies like X-Men and Watchmen (a lot of 'men' films) and directed Wolves in 2014, wants to see this movie happen.

We actually had a discussion about the potential of Vogt-Roberts' Metal Gear movie on the most recent episode of the podcast. You can watch/listen to that below.

Awesome Guile Vs. Nash Street Fighter Diorama On The Way From Kinnetiquettes

Statue manufacturer Kinnetiquettes is adding Street Fighter's Guile and Nash to its line of War Heroes dioramas. Although Guile and Nash are designed to be fighting each other, they are sold separately. Guile retails for $429, and Nash is a bit more at $449.

Both of these polystone statues are 1/6 scale, and feature stands that interlock to create the remains of a downed jet. Although Kinnetiquettes is opening up pre-orders now, neither statue will be available until the second quarter of 2019.

Animator Reimagines The Avengers' Climactic Battle Against Thanos With 16-Bit Graphics

Avengers: Infinity War is the culmination of a decade of superhero films starring the biggest stars in Marvel's stable. It's one of the highest-grossing films of all time and is considered by many to be one of the best comic-book films to date. The Marvel Cinematic Universe didn't start until 2008 with Iron Man, but what if we were able to experience Infinity Wars' massive action scenes long before that in the form of an SNES game?

Before you go any further, it should go without saying that this article and video contains spoilers for Avengers: Infinity War.

The team behind YouTube channel Mr Sunday Movies has reimagined one of the most climactic scenes from Infinity War with 16-bit graphics. In the scene, characters like Iron Man, Doctor Strange, Spider-Man, Drax, and Star-Lord collectively struggle to defeat Thanos, protect the Time Stone, and wrestle away the Infinity Gauntlet from the Mad Titan. Of course, if you've seen the film, you know things didn't quite go according to plan.
