04.08.2020 • TRAILER TUESDAY

On today's Trailer Tuesday we want to share clips for one game, two series and two films with you. Even if some things still have a little question mark, we have put the titles on the watchlist.

Games

IRON HARVEST
The cinematic trailer for this diesel punk game looks really good. The game will be released on September 1st for Xbox One, PS4 and PC.

Movies

HONEST THIEF
A notorious bank robber wants to live an honest life and turns himself in, only to be double-crossed by two ruthless FBI agents. Star vehicle for Liam Neeson - well, let's see..

THE PALE DOOR
If you like westerns and horror films, you might be spot on with this genre crossover.

Series

TEENAGE BOUNTY HUNTERS
After teaming up with a veteran bounty hunter, the sixteen-year-old twin sisters Sterling and Blair plunge into the world of bail-out villains. It looks a bit cheesy, but we'll be testing the Netflix series, starting August 14th.

FARGO Season 4
Season 4 of Fargo starring Chris Rock takes us into the world of the Kansas City Mafia in the 1950s. The short trailer looks great already!

03.08.2020 • PRODUCT OF THE MONTH AUGUST 2020

From 2006 to 2008 McFarlane Toys has started to delight die-hard fans and collectors of the »Alien / Predator« universe with magnificent action figures. The project was not precise enough, however, so that NECA outran the dear Todd for these two cult franchises and has established a figure line par excellence since 2010.

About ten years later NECA celebrates a sensational anniversary - with a sensational release: the ALPHA PREDATOR as the 100th figure in a Special Edition! For the first time, NECA's creative team has created its own concept of the beast to mark this milestone. What came out is - especially for the price of under 40 EUR - truly awesome. With a size of more than 20cm the figure is indeed an alpha animal (or -alien), the accessories and the variation possibilities are extremely versatile, the packaging design is very elaborate - all in all this Ultimate figure is an all-round successful anniversary highlight. So there is no question that the ALPHA PREDATOR was chosen as our Product of the Month August!

30.07.2020 • GREAT SCOTT...

...we bring you back - TO THE THEATERS!

On the occasion of the 35th anniversary of »Back to the Future« - and probably also a little bit due to the lack of cinema novelties - it was announced to give the trilogy a cinema comeback! In selected Cinemaxx theaters parts 1 to 3 will be screened again, one after the other, starting today.
For your home cinema, polished versions in 4K will be released on October 22  2020, namely as "4K Steelbook Collection", "Limited Edition" (Amazon exclusive), "Mediabook" and as "Remastered Blu-ray".

So if you're up for a freshly hydrated pizza, a Pepsi Perfect in a Café of the 80's or just want to go for a ride on the Hoverboard, you can do this again on the big screen - or in autumn in 4K at your home cinema! ;)
By the way: it can't be long until we get the first shipment of BTTF Ultimate figures from NECA. The Doc has just been newly announced and you can of course already find it on our website.

28.07.2020 • TRAILER TUESDAY

Today's Trailer Tuesday is all about Comic-Con@Home. As expected, we genre fans were well served there. In addition to a rather narrow range of films, the focus here is clearly on the series.

Movies

NEW MUTANTS
»The New Mutants« has been postponed again and again and it's now scheduled to start on August 27th. In addition to the new teaser, the first two minutes of the film were also shown as a sneak preview at the virtual Comic Con. We are very excited to see how the superhero horror combination will turn out.

BILL & TED FACE THE MUSIC
The new trailer now also introduces us to the next generation. We experience Samara Weaving as Thea Preston and Brigette Lundy-Paine as Billie Logan. Both very charming and funny personifications of the two daughters - that and Kevin Smith's hymn of praise greatly increased our anticipation on the movie!

Series

NEXT
The Fox series with John Slattery (»Mad Man«) deals with artificial intelligence and paranoia. The trailer gives hope for an exciting series.

HELSTROM
Unusually dark for Marvel conditions... But that's exactly what distinguishes the Hulu series. The siblings Daimon and Ana Helstrom are in the focus - the son and daughter of a mysterious and powerful serial killer hunt down murderers and demons together.

THE WALKING DEAD: WORLD BEYOND
At the center of the series are some teenagers who grew up in the post-apocalyptic world and have no knowledge of the world before. The series starts on October 4th and is limited to two seasons. We still don't really look forward to the series, but let's give it a chance.

UTOPIA
Utopia is the US remake of the British series of the same name. A group of comic book fans get into a conspiracy story after they own the unpublished second part of »The Utopia Experiment«. Let's see if Amazon Prime Video can top the original.

TRUTH SEEKERS
A horror comedy series with Nick Frost and Simon Pegg as investigators of paranormal phenomena naturally has our full attention, even if not every gag ignites in this first trailer.

THE BOYS
There was a small scene from »The Boys«. Oh man, only »The Boys« can be really that bad and politically incorrect.

LOVECRAFT COUNTRY
After this atmospheric trailer we are looking forward to the series by Misha Green and Jordan Peele even more. This promises to be another highlight in the long HBO list of high-quality TV series.

27.07.2020 • 1, 2 OR 3?

Dear S.P.A.C.E Army! We would like to thank you all once again for the numerous participation in our S.P.A.C.E POP CON AT HOME LIVESTREAMS. Thanks also for the many compliments and kind words. :)

We are very happy that it was so well attended by you all - we noticed once again that we have the BEST CUSTOMERS IN THE WORLD! <3

As already announced in the livestream, we had decided together with our dear guest Patrick (@wonderbunk) to drag 3 chic, new characters in front of the camera. You can see the great results of the photo sessions here.

YOU can now vote on Instagram, which photo YOU like best! The one with the most votes will be published in a limited edition as a high quality art print. Some copies will even be raffled off!

Since this year the "real" SDCC unfortunately didn't make it, we would like to give you a small con souvenir of our S.P.A.C.E POP CON AT HOME 2020. :)

You can vote until Friday, 31.07.2020 at 12 o'clock!

22.07.2020 • COMIC-CON@HOME PANELS

A Comic Con at Home is actually quite a nice thing. Now we have the opportunity to watch a few interesting panels without crowding and long lines - and there are plenty of them! You can find a good overview here.


These are a few of our personal highlights:

TRUTH SEEKERS (Thurs. 9 p.m.) A series with Simon Pegg and Nick Frost? We clearly prick up our ears!

THE NEW MUTANTS (Thurs. 11 p.m.) Director Josh Boones and actors Maisie Williams, Anya Taylor-Joy, Charlie Heaton, Blu Hunt and Henry Zaga. Ready for the next X-Men generation!

THE BOYS (Thurs. 00:00 a.m.) Showrunner Eric Kripke and the executive producers Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg as well as the actors Karl Urban and others. A clear highlight for us!

HELSTROM (Fri. 00:00 a.m.) Let's see what is said about the Hulu Marvel series!

GUILLERMO DEL TORO AND SCOTT COOPER ON ANTLERS AND FILMMAKING (Sat. 10:00 p.m.) It could be exciting!

BILL & TED FACE THE MUSIC (Sat. 00:00 a.m.) Keanu Reeves and Alex Winter director Dean Parisot the writers and other actors in a panel moderated by Kevin Smith. Sounds like fun!

21.07.2020 • TRAILER TUESDAY

Only two more days until COMIC-CON@HOME. There are already a number of panels announced about the hottest series, that broadcasters and streaming services have in the pipeline. So it's no wonder that there are no series trailers today. Amazon Prime Video, HBO, Hulu and Co. saved them for spectacular Comic Con reveals.

But anyway, we have two games and a few cool movies for you on this Trailer Tuesday:

Games

OUTRIDERS
The new story trailer for the third-person shooter doesn't look bad at all. The game is scheduled to appear on all major platforms at the end of 2020.

FAR CRY 6
This trailer for »Far Cry 6« is a real treat. In addition to the look, it really appealed to us how the trailer tells its little story. Great job and a real eye-catcher in itself.

Movies

THE SHADOW OF VIOLENCE
»The Shadow of Violence« or »Calm with Horses« as the film is called in the English original tells the story of Douglas 'Arm' Armstrong who has become the feared enforcer for the drug-dealing Devers family, whilst also trying to be a good father. Torn between these two families, Arm's loyalties are tested when he is asked to kill for the first time. That looks like a crime drama with depth.

LET IT SNOW
A snowboarder not only has to fight against nature for her survival, but also against a masked snowmobile driver in black who is looking for her blood. The trailer promises ice-cold excitement with of a magnificent mountain backdrop. Will be released directly as VoD and on DVD.

TESLA
Biopics of famous scientists and inventors are currently booming. First »Marie Curie«, then »Edison« and now »Tesla« with Ethan Hawke in the title role. Due to the thematic proximity, we think the two films can very well be presented as a double feature. It will be exciting to compare them.

PROJECT POWER
What would you risk for five minutes of pure power? On the streets of New Orleans, word begins to spread about a mysterious new pill that unlocks superpowers unique to each user. The catch: You don’t know what will happen until you take it. While some develop bulletproof skin, invisibility, and super strength, others exhibit a deadlier reaction. This Netflix action cracker with Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Dominique Fishback and Jamie Foxx promises great excitement! It will be released on August 14 and we marked it bold on the calendar.

THE NEW MUTANTS
We no longer have to introduce »The New Mutants«... After much back and forth there is finally a start date - August 27th. A must watch for all Marvel fans! On July 23 there will be also a panel at COMIC-CON@HOME.

16.07.2020 • S.P.A.C.E POP CON AT HOME 2020

Soon, it will be that time of year: SAN DIEGO COMIC CON is around the corner - well, would be, actually. Of course SDCC can not take place this year because of the Covid-19 pandemic. But what would July be without Comic Con flavour?

The promoters of Comic Con, many manufacturers and of course we from the S.P.A.C.E Crew made up our minds about how to fill the nerdiest time of the year with geekness and pop culture... and so our idea for the first S.P.A.C.E POP CON AT HOME was born - and everyone is invited to join!

On the weekend from 24. to 26. July you can hang out with us live from your homes and chat with us about the hottest news, announcements and highlights! The "us" does contain great guests from abroad, as every year. As special guests we will have again our colleague Mick (@mickbaltes) and our friend Patrick (@wonderbunk) plus, for the first time, a very special special guest: Stefan (@lesgrohl). During our lives-streams on YouTube you'll be able to grab awesome goodies like shop coupons and giveaways. You can also look forward to thrilling unboxings of a bunch of new items that are not shipped yet...

What you will need is just a good internet connection, a large bucket of popcorn and of course our social media channels in your subcriptions and following lists (best thing including the alarm ring on YouTube), so you won't miss out any of our streams.

We will announce the exact time table and schedule of our streams with all the topics next week on Thursday. Are you ready? We are so excited and happy to e-meet you and we're also looking forward to the SDCC - this time in "different"!

15.07.2020 • THE BAD BATCH

The STAR WARS news of the week probably enchanted especially all »Clone Wars« fans among you: Disney+ has ordered the next animated series from Lucasfilm - Star Wars: The Bad Batch!

As the title already says, this series will be all about the Clone Troopers from the famous elite squad »Clone Force 99« which have been introduced and brought into the Star Wars universe in the last season of »The Clone Wars« as the Bad Batch.

Of course, mastermind Dave "most of the time I am hiding my superbrain under my cowboy hat" Filoni will lead the strings as executive producer. This basically already guarantees a great storyline.

It's likely that the crew will shortly start to write and produce, so that the show can launch on Disney+ next year :)
 

14.07.2020 • TRAILER TUESDAY

You mortals, let all hope go, because today's Trailer Tuesday brings you the full blast of horror. Click at your own risk! But maybe a few weird superheroes will save your day in the end...

Games

VAMPIRE THE MASQUERADE: SWANSONG
Anyone who really wants bloodsucking action should be in good hands in this role-playing game. It will be released next year for PC, PlayStation 5, Xbox Series X, PlayStation 4, Xbox One and Nintendo Switch.

THE DARK PICTURES: LITTLE HOPE
The trailer for the second game from the »The Dark Picture« anthology series spreads a nice scary atmosphere. The town of »Little Hope« should be worth a visit for horror fans. The game will be released just in time for Halloween on October 30th.

Movies

RANDOM ACTS OF VIOLENCE

The authors of the Slasherman comic book series notice frightening similarities between the character they created and terrible real-life events. Interesting because comic conventions will also play a role here. ;)

YUMMY
We had already presented this Belgian film with zombies in an Eastern European beauty clinic some time ago. The flick is actually coming to our cinemas on July 23rd.

HALLOWEEN KILLS
There is only a short teaser for »Halloween Kills« which starts where Halloween ended. It's so intense, when Jamie Lee Curtis desperately shouts “Let it burn” again and again in the face of the approaching fire brigade. Unfortunately we have to wait until October 2021 for the »Halloween« sequel.

Series

STAR TREK: LOWER DECKS
Why not make the red shirts and all those low ranks the protagonists. Someone has to scrub the toilets on the Enterprise ;) The idea for this Star Trek animation series sounds really funny. But unfortunately the trailer for »Star Trek: Lower Decks« was not quite convincing. Let's see - maybe the series will be better than what trailer is showing so far.

THE UMBRELLA ACADEMY Season 2
The adaptation of the Dark Horse comic series of the same name goes into the second round. Once again, the Hargreeves siblings have to save the world from the apocalypse, only this time in the 1960s. The trailer makes us really hot for the new season. The show will be available on Netflix from July 31st.

THE BOYS Season 2
We'll also meet weird superheroes on Amazon Prime. From September 4, "The Boys" will slam again. The trailer does not hold back and is not stingy with nice gore effects. Definitely our highlight of the week.

What are you most looking forward to?

13.07.2020 • COWABUNGA, DUDES!

Fans of the »Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles« have every reason to be excited, because there are two new Turtles films in the pipeline!

Let's look back at the last releases from the franchise. These were the feature films »Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles« (2014) and »Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Out of the Shadows« (2016). These live-action film adaptations, produced by Michael Bay, were not very well received by the audience. The second movie did a little better in the ratings, but the production team was anything but satisfied with the box office result. Another live-action film was planned, but Michael Bay is now out of the game for a sequel.

Luckily, they are going back to the roots of the series, so the next movie will be an animated film again! The production is to be carried out by Nickelodeon Animation Studios in collaboration with Point Gray Pictures. Behind it are Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg, both professing genre fans. And we just assume that they understand the Turtles better than producer Bay.

What do you think? Are Rogan/Goldberg ablet to bring the right humor for the Turtles?

But that's not all, because another Turtles animated movie is planned for Netflix. It will be based on the Nickelodeon series »The Rise of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles« from 2018.

So put a pizza in the oven and get ready for a full load of Turtle-Power!

09.07.2020 • CYBERPUNK: EDGERUNNERS

The Polish developing studio CD PROJEKT RED is currently on the lead. Since the success of »The Witcher 3«, they simply cannot be stopped. Their new game »Cyberpunk 2077« which is eagerly being awaited by the community is in the starting blocks and it surely will be among the most celebrated titles of the year besides »The Last of Us 2«.

It's no wonder that NETFLIX has already reached out and is planning an animation series called »Cyberpunk: Edgerunners«. They took the Japanese animation studio TRIGGER on board. These guys will be responsible for the proper anime look of the sttings and the character design. This already sounds promising... We will see the results in 2022 - of course on Netflix!

07.07.2020 • TRAILER TUESDAY

Again we have a colorful mix on this Trailer Tuesday. Whether sports drama, steampunk, sci-fi, fantasy, animated film, comedy or zombies - there should be something for everyone.

Games

F.I.S.T.: FORGED IN SHADOW TORCH - Story Trailer
The world in this steampunk fable just did it for us.

DEATH STRANDING - Exclusive PC Features Trailer

The features trailer on Hideo Kojima's »Death Stranding« with Norman Reedus and Mads Mikkelsen also grabbed us. The PC edition will be released on 14th July.

HORIZON ZERO DAWN - PC Features Trailer
Here also the trailer picked us up and really made us want to play the complete edition. The release date is 7th August. By the way, we have listed two cool Prime 1 statues (Aloy and Stalker) in the shop for pre-order.

Series

CURSED - Trailer 2
There is a second trailer for the Netflix series »Cursed«. This time the trailer reveals something more about the alternative Arthurian story. The clip looks very high quality, although we are still not convinced about the content. Let's check it out from 17th July on Netflix.

TRANSFORMERS: WAR FOR CYBERTRON TRILOGY - Siege
The devastating war between Autobots and Decepticons is now ending. A must-see for all »Transformers« fans! The animation series celebrates its exclusive premiere on Netflix on 30th July.

Films

THE WAY BACK
Jack Cunningham (Ben Affleck) receives the offer to bring the unsuccessful basketball team of his old university up to speed as a coach. A film for all fans of sports dramas and Ben Affleck. From 23. July at the movies.

FATAL AFFAIR
A brief encounter takes a dangerous turn for Ellie when her old friend David turns out to be unexpectedly unstable. With Nia Long (Empire) and Omar Epps (Dr. House). This reminds us of the 80s film »Fatal Attraction« . From 16th July on Netflix.

AN AMERICAN PICKLE
The immigrant Herschel Greenbaum (Seth Rogen) falls into a tub with pickled gherkins in 1920. 100 years later, he wakes up in what is now modern Brooklyn and meets great-grandson Ben (also Rogen). The comedy starts on 6th August on HBO Max and will probably find its way in the Sky program in Germany.

ZOMBIE FOR SALE
Lots of good horror films come from Asia. When it comes to zombies, the South Korean »Train to Busan« was a blast. The last absolutely fantastic zombie comedy was »One Cut of the Dead« from Japan. We are definitely interested here and have put the South Korean »Zombie for Sale« on our watchlist. Unfortunately, no German release date is set yet. We keep our eyes open.

THE OLD GUARD - Trailer 2

A second trailer for the immortal-fantasy-adventure with Charlize Theron. The film starts on Netflix on 10th July. Theron often has a knack for choosing her films. We will definitely watch »The Old Guard«.

06.07.2020 • GRAZIE PER LA MUSICA, GRANDE SIGNORE!

With Ennio Morricone, one of the big names in cinema passed away today at the age of 91. Even thoug we will miss him, his music remains for eternity.

Morricone created haunting congenial soundtracks for many Westerns by Sergio Leone. The musical themes of »Once Upon a Time in the West« and »The Good, the Bad and the Ugly« have burned into our eardrums forever.

He also created impressive, unforgettable scores for the Italian Gialli, such as for Dario Argento's »The Bird with the Crystal Plumage«, or for »Who Saw Her Die?« by Aldo Lado, with a real goosebumps Children's choir. Also one of the last Edgar Wallace films, Massimo Dallamano's »What Have You Done to Solange?«, the music has Ennio Morricone's signature. The list of his works is neverending...

In 2007, he received the Academy Award for his lifetime achievement. He had previously been nominated for best film music five times. The music Oscar finally came in 2016 for the soundtrack of Quentin Tarantino's »The Hateful Eight«. What an outstanding performance - at the age of 88!

But that is only a fraction of his doing. His list as a film composer includes 520 credits. Today he conducts a dream concert in heaven with his unforgettable melodies.Arrivederci, Ennio. Grazie per la musica.

02.07.2020 • THE BOYS F**KIN' REUNITED

Already a couple of months ago, Amazon confirmed that the very popular (Anti-)Superhero show THE BOYS would get a second season.

Now they uploaded a 1 hour long announcement stream on YouTube where the main actors came together with host Patton Oswalt (Spence Olchin from »King of Queens«) via Zoom conference. Of course there was a lot of chatting and joking - but towards the end they gave an exclusive preview on season 2 - namely the first three minutes!

The bloody spectacular will launch (probably worldwide) on Prime Video on 4. September. So you should mark this day fat in your calendar. And by the way, dear Amazon licensors: we definately need an action-figure line up with season 3 the latest....!

01.07.2020 • PRODUCT OF THE MONTH JULY 2020

Everytime when an extraordinary beautiful collectible on a classic movie or TV show is arriving at the S.P.A.C.E headquarter, the whole crew is gathering  together in the warehouse. That was exactly the case about a week ago, when the first vinyl bust of the new »Tom and Jerry« line by the Asian manufacturer SOAP STUDIO came in. Actually, we already loved this product while putting it online for pre-order back in summer last year, but now looking at the final product in hand, one thing was instantly clear to us all: we do have our new monthly highlight!

If you are a fan of the old Hanna-Barbera cartoons, you probably won't be able to resist the Tom and Jerry »Burger« Vinyl Bust. This item has such a charming aura, thanks to the sculpt, the paint-job and especially thanks to the expression of the two characters. We're pretty sure that everone who adds this piece to his collection will get a smiling face by looking at it everytime. Just wonderful!

We love the fact that Soap Studio is now focusing - probably because of the long years of collaboration with WARNER on several Batman collectibles - on Tom and Jerry, the Looney Tunes, the Flintstones and Co. Let's see what the creative team from Hong Kong will come up with in the future. You can be sure that we will list and take in all upcoming novelties from them in our shop.

30.06.2020 • TRAILER TUESDAY

The films on this Trailer Tuesday are a colorful mix of biopic, thrillers and literary adaptations. Series and games with new trailers are happening completely in the sci-fi worlds this week.

Movies

RESPECT
The life story of the legendary R&B singer Aretha Franklin. Greatly embodied by Oscar winner Jennifer Hudson!

THE SILENCING
A reformed hunter living in isolation on a wildlife sanctuary becomes involved in a deadly game of cat and mouse when he and the local Sheriff set out to track a vicious killer who may have kidnapped his daughter years ago. The trailer for this thriller with Nikolaj Coster-Waldau looks quite decent.

EASY DOES IT
Two outsiders and their accidental hostage go on a criminal journey through the southwestern United States to find the Californian dream. A crime comedy, among others with Linda Hamilton - the trailer has something...

GREENLAND
A family fights for survival as a planet-killing comet races to Earth. Disasters thriller with Gerard Butler, which is not reinventing the wheel here, but maybe a quite exciting movie.

WAITING FOR THE BARBARIANS
A British magistrate who lives in a small colonial town begins to doubt his loyalty to the Empire... Based on J. M. Coetzee's novel, originally published in 1980. With Johnny Depp, Mark Rylance and Robert Pattinson top-class cast and definitely worth a cinema visit.

Serien

THE HANDMADE'S TALE Season 4
We are particularly looking forward to the fourth season of the Hulu series »The Handmade's Tale«. The trailer looks damn good! Unfortunately we have to wait until next year to continue the dystopian series.

FOUNDATION
The science fiction series »Foundation« is based on the novel series of the same name by sci-fi legend Isaac Asimov. That could be a reason to try Apple TV + in 2021.

BRAVE NEW WORLD
»Brave New World« is loosely based on the novel of the same name by Aldous Huxley. Another dystopian science fiction classic. The Series starts on July 15th at the US streaming service Peacock and here probably on Sky.

Games

CYBERPUNK 2077
The extended trailer for »Cyberpunk 2077« was a special treat for us. It really makes us eager for game and finally we have a reason to look forward to the grey November.

25.06.2020 • SDCC@HOME

Exactly four weeks from today, the legendary SAN DIEGO COMIC CON, the mother of all conventions, is opening its doors - not.

Like any other major event, the world's most important event in pop culture was of course cancelled due to the COVID 19 pandemic. This is extremely sad for all of us - i.e. every single fan or visitor, the exhibitors, the guests and, of course, for us retailers as well - because everyone knows how important and significant SDCC is for the industry. But for the protection of everybody there was no way around the cancellation of the event.

The organizing crew around the SDCC does not want to let the date pass by silently and quietly... and so recently the »Comic-Con@Home 2020« was teased, an online event that should at least be a small consolation for all of us. And hey, everybody will get free parking and a comfy chair and there will even be personalized snacks, you won't have to stand in line, your pets are welcome and there will be badges for all including a seat in the front row ;)

Also we from the S.P.A.C.E Crew will maintain our traditional happening to the SDCC! Of course we will observe and report everything that happens at the »Comic-Con@Home 2020« between July 23rd and 26th. We also assume that some manufacturers will be revealing product novelties on their social media or news channels. We will collect all the important information and bundle it for you as we do every year. Of course we also keep an eye on trailer premieres, online panels and everything else that seems interesting.

As in the years before, we will host at least one big livestream where you can interact to your heart's content. I'm sure we'll also find something nice for a raffle. More details like our schedule, possible guests and other highlights will be announced in time...

24.06.2020 • ALL EVENTS OCCUR IN REALTIME!

Today we have a - meanwhile almost nostalgic - bingewatching tip for you: 24! All nine "Twentyfour" seasons are now available on Netflix - and for those of you who don't know the series yet, now is the time to join in - because... "All events occur in realtime."

Man, we were so excited in 2003 when the first season came on air here. The concept of a TV series in realtime was refreshingly new at the time and worked incredibly well. CTU agent Jack Bauer was the toughest under the sun, who at times did not shy away from questionable methods. Breathless suspense, split-screens and unbelievable twists that kept catching us off guard, so that we were staring through the nights with heart racing.

The narrative quality couldn't keep up the series over the whole distance of nine seasons, but still »24« was a groundbreaking TV-event with a rarely reached tension and addiction factor. And Kiefer Sutherland simply embodied his role magnificently throughout. In this sense: Happy Binging!

23.06.2020 • TRAILER TUESDAY

Trailer Tuesday Time again. We discovered some games, series and movies that caught our attention. Behind some trailers we have a little question mark though...

Games


STAR WARS: SQUADRONS - Official Gameplay Trailer
Let's start with the games today. After highlighting the new »Star Wars« game last week, a gameplay trailer follows that tells you a little more about the game.

REMOTHERED: BROKEN PORCELAIN
It ain't a secret that we love horror games. So the creepy atmosphere really grabbed us in this release trailer. That promises to be exciting! Release for Playstation 4: August 25th.

LOST IN RANDOM
»Lost in Random« also has a very special atmosphere. The style reminds us a little of the Tim Burton animated films. A closer look at the game could be worthwhile. Release 2021.

CRASH BANDICOOT 4: IT’S ABOUT TIME
Then an old friend logs back into the game with a brand new announcement trailer. Are you interested in a new jump-n-run with crash?

Series

CURSED
»Cursed« is a series by Frank Miller and Thomas Wheeler, in which the Arthurian saga is re-told from the perspective of Nimue (Katherine Langford). The trailer does not reveal much yet and has not yet completely convinced us. From July 17th, we can get an idea of what the series is good for on Netflix.

WARRIOR NUN
Teenage fantasy horror series are currently booming on Netflix. The trailer of this nunsploitation series looks very appealing. We hope it is also good entertainment for everyone beyond the generation of braces. On July 2nd we'll get smarter.

HANNA Staffel 2
After a dramatic final of the first season, »Hanna« goes into the second round. Launch date on Amazon Prime Video on July 3rd.

Movies

HAMILTON
If you are a musical fan, there is good news for you. Disney + brings Broadway to your living room with a recording of the award-winning musical about the life of the American founding father Alexander Hamilton.

ARCHIVE
Preserving the human spirit in a machine and bringing back a loved one who has died are popular sci-fi topics. That's what »Archive« is all about. It will be released in the USA on July 10th. There is no date for Germany yet. We would be interested in the film.

ADVANTAGES OF TRAVELLING BY TRAIN
The Spanish film »Ventajas de viajar en tren« (Advantages of Travelling by Train) is in Germany called »Die obskuren Geschichten eines Zugreisenden« (The Obscure Stories of a Train Passenger). The title alludes to Luis Buñuel's film »That Obscure Object of Desire« and the trailer also makes some direct references to the great surrealists. Coming soon in cinema. The tickets are as good as bought.

THE BIG UGLY
The trailer of this revenge drama reminds us of a Guy Ritchie film. This is also due to the starring role of Vinnie Jones. Alongside him, the film is prominently cast with Ron Perlman and Malcolm McDowell. Names that always make us risk an eye.

THE KING'S MAN (trailer 3)
The third trailer for the Kingsman prequel makes us want to watch the film. We have a thumbs up for the fairy-tale like villain Rasputin. On September 17th  (hopefully) we will order an extra large bucket of popcorn in the cinema of our choice.

19.06.2020 • A CONTAINER FULL OF JOY

Almost exactly on the spot at 8 a.m. this morning it was standing in front of our door - our big fat container from far-east, fully packed with 1/6 novelties!

The delivery was originally already planned for Tuesday, but due to the high workload at the harbours and the train network they just were able to bring the container in today. But honestly, those three more days didn't matter anymore in the end... and the load that is now taken off our minds (because everything went smooth in the end on sea, at customs aso.) is at least as heavy as the container with conent itself ;)

As you surely can imagine, the whole S.P.A.C.E Crew is on fire now. We will not only today, but over the whole weekend be in the warehouse, counting and unpacking all the boxes, checking the items and of course as soon as possible start shipping out pre-orders. So please keep an eye on your mailbox because you will surely have mail from us in the next days.

Latest on Monday we should be ready to mark all available items on our website with "in stock", so that everybody who's still in need for new stuff can order whatever he wants. We really would again give out a big thanks to our very patient pre-ordering customers and we really treasure it that nobody came and burned our house down after basically half a year of cold turkey of 1/6 reload. Thank you - and have lots of fun with unboxing your packages in the next coming days...

18.06.2020 • CANDYMAN 2020

There is a new trailer for Nia DaCosta's »Candyman« remake. And this trailer is thoroughly unusual, as it takes us stylistically into a world of images long before the cinema. It is a shadow play, as can still be seen in Indonesia in the traditional shadow play, the Wayang Kulit. What a great idea! For us, it has increased the anticipation for the film enormously, but this trailer is also a small piece of art for itself. A must see!

The film will start on September 24th.

17.06.2020 • REUNITED APART: GHOSTBUSTERS

We recently recommended the awesome YouTube format »Reunited Apart« at the warmest to you. Especially the wonderful »Lord of the Rings« episode was a real hit. Two days ago, Josh Gad presented the next cult classic and gathered actors and makers together to another zoom chat session out of their home-office or living room. Along there were folks like Bill Murray, Dan Aykroyd, Ernie Hudson, Sigourney Weaver, Annie Potts, Ivan Reitman and Jason Reitman. Of course we are talking about GHOSTBUSTERS!

Again there were so many funny and also moving moments, like the shared memories of the beloved Harold "Egon Spengler" Ramis who passed away in 2014.

Of course there was a charity involved again. In the spotlight of the latest events in the USA, donations for the »Equal Justice Initiative« have been collected. #blacklivesmatter

At last towards the end of the show there was no holding back anymore for every true fan... But let's keep this spoiler-free for those of you who didn't watch this spectular yet ;-)

16.06.2020 • TRAILER TUESDAY

It's Trailer Tuesday again and time to show you which trailer tickled our retinas in the past few days and which series, films and games we wrote on the notepad.

Series

DARK SEASON 3
The time travel and parallel world adventure "Made in Germany" goes into the third and final round. Start is on June 27th on Netflix. It's underlined in bold in the calendar.

Movies

THE CURRENT WAR
This is about the conflict between Thomas A. Edison and George Westinghouse over the electrification of America. The trailer already looks great and the cast with Benedict Cumberbatch, Michael Shannon and Nicholas Hoult also sounds very promising!

EUROVISION SONG CONTEST: THE STORY OF FIRE SAGA
Spoiler Alert!
Yes, it's actually a film about the ESC - Pierce Brosnan and Will Ferrell are among those involved. This could get pretty weird... Unfortunately the trailer already reveals a bit too much. If you don't want to be spoiled, just leave the trailer out and watch the movie on Netflix directly from June 26th.

GHOSTS OF WAR
Follows five battle-hardened American soldiers assigned to hold a French Chateau near the end of World War II. Formerly occupied by the Nazi high command, this unexpected respite quickly descends into madness when they encounter a supernatural enemy far more terrifying than anything seen on the battlefield. Interesting setting - hopefully more than just jump scares.

Games

MAFIA: DEFINITIVE EDITION
The remake of Mafia 1 looks damn good. We really feel like to dive into the mobster world of the game.

WEREWOLF: THE APOCALYPSE - EARTHBLOOD
The render trailer for this werewolf story with an ecological background also made us curious.

RESIDENT EVIL VILLAGE
The Resident Evil series has been around for many years. The announcement trailer for part 8 has some pretty beautiful Gothic elements that will probably push us to the console.

STAR WARS SQUADRONS
Buckle up, take full control of starfighters such as the X-wing and TIE fighter, and feel the adrenaline of strategic first-person 5v5 multiplayer dogfights alongside your squadron. In a fateful campaign set near the conclusion of the Galactic Civil War, learn what it means to be a pilot in a thrilling STAR WARS single-player story. For us Star Wars fans again a real no-brainer. Squadrons is available October 2, 2020 on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Origin PC, Steam, Epic Games Store, and Virtual Reality (VR) on PlayStation 4 and PC with cross-play support.

10.06.2020 • BILL & TED RELOADED

»Bill & Ted's Excellent Adventure« from 1989 was a wonderful time travel gaudy that achieved cult status. Now there is the first trailer of the sequel »Bill & Ted Face the Music«, again with Keanu Reeves as Ted 'Theodore' Logan and Alex Winter as Bill S. Preston.

The two are now in their 40s and have still not written the ONE song that is supposed to save the whole universe and the future. Because they are currently lacking in ideas, they decide to travel to the future at the time when they have already written the song and to steal it there themselves. Excellent idea! Or not... because the chaos is of course preprogrammed.

The reunion with these heroes of our youth is first and foremost pure nostalgia. And THAT alone will drive us to the theaters. Reeves and Winter - as the trailer already shows - use their old roles, now aged by 30 years, still excellent. We are looking forward to the film!

By the way, Dudes, we already have the two Bill and Ted action figures from Incendium in stock. For pre-order you'll find the NECA action figures from the cartoon series, as well as the excellent double pack of the 1/6 scale figures from Blitzway.

Be excellent to each other!

09.06.2020 • TRAILER TUESDAY

The trailer yield of the last week was a bit thin again. Not everything was able to convince us - a few series and films have caught our attention though. The highlights of our Trailer Tuesday are clearly the games this time.

Series


THE WOODS
»The Woods« is a Polish drama mystery thriller mini series and is based on the eponymous Harlan Cobens novel. The discovery of a body shows connections to the sister of a respected public prosecutor who has been missing for 25 years. The series has our attentionStarting June 12, 2020 on Netflix

LOVECRAFT COUNTRY
This is the second trailer for the HBO series. The African American Atticus Turner searches for his father in the mid-1950s after his disappearance. The trail leads to Lovecraft Country in New England, where the strictest racial laws existed at the time and a racist secret lodge operated. Given the recent events in the United States, more current than ever.

Movies

COVEN
Sexy witches somewhere between Gothic and the Victoria’s Secret lingerie catalog plus lots of colorful effect contact lenses. If you are in puberty, it might be worth a visit. ;) The clip rather put us off, though.

PENGUIN
The trailer of this Indian thriller drama reveals almost nothing, but is full of visual power. On Prime Video in India, UK and USA from June 19. No appointment for Germany yet.

YOU SHOULD HAVE LEFT
Our cinematic highlight comes from Blumhouse again. The leading roles are played by Kevin Bacon and Amanda Seyfried. This psycho-horror thriller was directed by David Koepp, who made a name for himself as a screenwriter for »Jurassic Park«, »Mission: Impossible«, »Panic Room« and »Stir of Echoes«. He also directed the last, and Kevin Bacon also starred in it. That looks like a winning team. And after the exciting trailer we hang on the hook. VoD June 19.

Games

NECROMUNDA: UNDERHIVE WARS
»Necromunda: Underhive Wars« is a tactical role-playing game and the first video game adaptation of the legendary tabletop game »Necromunda«. The characters in the atmospheric trailer somehow remind us of »Mad Max«. The game is coming this summer on PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC.

DESPERADOS 3
Here is a trailer of a completely different kind. This time not rendered, but an implementation using miniatures. Our hearts beat faster as figure collectors and diorama enthusiasts. Make sure to check out also the making of this trailer.

THE LAST OF US 2
We don't have to wait long for »The Last of Us 2« - the game will be released on June 19th. The new render trailer is awesome and increases our anticipation of the game immeasurably. Now only survive the last 10 days...

08.06.2020 • RYAN "THE WOLFSMAN" GOSLING

The »Universal Monsters« are unforgettable classics of horror cinema from Hollywood's golden age. Already in the 40s there were a number of crossover films that brought together the well-known characters from Frankenstein's Monster to Dracula to the Wolfman. The films could not match the originals from the 30s in terms of quality, but they had their moments and brought in money. In the course of film history, the classics were revived again and again, whereby the versions of the British Hammer Films were certainly the most prominent and then most innovative representatives in the genre.

After the great success of the Marvel films, Universal thought: "...let's just build a »Shared Universal Dark Universe« with our monsters." That worked before. When »The Mummy« flopped with Tom Cruise, the plan was reconsidered and the decision was made to launch smaller, stand-alone films instead. »The Invisible Man« with Elisabeth Moss cost $7 million and still earned a whopping $122 million at the box office before the cinemas had to close due to the coronavirus pandemic.

The next film will now be »The Wolfman« with Ryan Gosling in the leading role. Like »The Invisible Man«, the film will take place in our present and according to Variety it is said that it is assumed that the film will be stylistically based on Jake Gyllenhaal's thriller »Nightcrawler« with an obviously supernatural twist.

That sounds promising! We are very excited to see how the project will develop. Ryan Gosling seems to us to be the right man for the role and the changed approach gives directing talents from James Wan to John Krasinski the opportunity to follow their own vision without squeezing then into a tight corset of a »Shared Universe « Universal finally seems to be on the right track here.

03.06.2020 • REUNITED APART

The actor and voice actor Josh Gad currently hosts a weekly zoom show called »Reunited Apart«, which he publishes on his YouTube channel. Sounds a bit like our HOME ALONE Talk, but let's not assume that he copied it from us ;)

In this online reunion Josh Gad brings together cast and crew of legendary movies for a cosy conversation. THE GOONIES, BACK TO THE FUTURE and SPLASH were the themes of the first three episodes. Especially the »Back to the Future« round with Michael J. Fox, Christopher Lloyd, Lea Thompson and many others was extremely enjoyable and was a real heartwarming experience. We thought that it could not be topped anymore. But far from it - because the current episode of LORD OF THE RINGS is a real blast! 17 great guests, among them almost all of the fellows, led by Peter Jackson himself, joined this great fun. This was - not only for the audience - a rollercoaster of emotions. From goose bumps and tears of joy, to impressive re-enactment interludes and of course heart-refreshing laughter, everything was there ("...One Zoom to rule them all!"). Especially every LOTR fan will enjoy these 50 minutes of entertainment to the fullest.

But the best thing about this campaign is the charity purpose behind it: Josh links each episode to a different charity project he has chosen, which can be supported by the stars and the audience.

So be sure to check it out - and really watch until the end, because then you'll get a teaser on the next, surely also extremely cool, episode ;)

02.06.2020 • TRAILER TUESDAY

Today's yield for our Trailer Tuesday is not quite as lavish. The forced pause in the at the theaters caused various changes for film starts. Some movies come as VoD or on a silver disc, others with a delay. Not all movie trailers are brand new, but upcoming release dates are reason enough to take another close look.

Games

WARHAMMER 40.000
This cinematic trailer for the tabletop game is so cool that we did not want to keep it from you.

SHERLOCK HOLMES CHAPTER ONE
A Sherlock Holmes Open World adventure sounds like fun and is just the right thing to keep the little grey cells busy again. Get the carriage, Watson!

CALL OF DUTY MODERN WARFARE - SEASON 4 (WARZONE)
If you prefer something a bit more martial, this »Call of Duty« announcement trailer will probably get your money's worth.

DEAD BY DAYLIGHT: SILENT HILL
»Dead by Daylight« announces its latest collaboration. This time, a survivor and a murderer from another legendary horror game series are introduced. Drum roll... »Silent Hill«! In this cat and mouse game you can be either Heather Mason or Pyramid Head.

Movies

RICHARD JEWELL
Clint Eastwood is a living legend, both in front of and behind the camera. He celebrated his 90th birthday two days ago and he's still making films. His latest work »Richard Jewell« is now scheduled for release in German cinemas on July 2nd.

JUDY & PUNCH
The trailer for this puppeteer story in the Middle Ages is also a bit older. The film has previously been screened at festivals and is now released as a VoD in the USA. We hope for a German release...

ENFANT TERRIBLE
The »Enfant Terrible« here means Rainer Werner Fassbinder. The biopic is probably not everyones taste, but at least a piece of German contemporary and film history. The cinema release date is October 1st.

RUN WITH THE HUNTED
»Run with the Hunted« is a thriller that we don't really know what to make of it after the trailer. Anyway, the movie can already score with the participation of Ron Perlman.

Series

ATTACK ON TITAN
For Anime fans there is the trailer for the fourth and last season of »Attack on Titan«. The season is planned to start this year. In Germany then probably on "Anime on Demand" again.

PERRY MASON
HBO brings back what is probably the best-known criminal defense lawyer in literature, film and series history. The trailer has a great 1930s atmosphere.

CURON
The trailer for this new Netflix fantasy mystery thriller series definitely made us curious. 17 years after the tragic events that forced her to leave Curon, a woman returns home with her two children. They soon discover that the Italian town is cursed... The start date is June 10th.

01.06.2020 • PRODUCT OF THE MONTH JUNE 2020

We finally ended up with music again while searching for our next product of the month. This will especially make Rock fans among you very happy... because the manufacturer Pop Culture Shock brought one of the absolute dinosaurs of Rock to the 1/6 scale with their ALICE COOPER figure that just came out. The cult rockstar, who already turned 72 (but of course looks like 172 years old) can count himself along the never forgotten originals of Rock, especially of the 70's and 80's. Thanks to PCS, he now received his honorable plastic MiniMe, that every fan can display next to the CDs on the shelf or in the showcase.

The figure is designed with high detail and comes with two exchangeable outfits and the matching changeable head. So are you also already hearing the catchy record in your ears? ... You're poison, running through my veins ;-)

27.05.2020 • THANKS!

After a state of emergency with the #stayathome period lasting for weeks, this is indeed the first five-day week in which the entire S.P.A.C.E Crew is back at our headquarter in full strength.

26.05.2020 • TRAILER TUESDAY

The silly season now definitely seems to be over. At least as far as the offer of new trailers is concerned. Today we have 12 titles on the list.

Games

PARADISE LOST
The Second World War continued for 20 years - we are in a post-apocalyptic Poland. Especially in its simplicity, this trailer pulled us under its spell.

THE ELDER SCROLLS ONLINE: GREYMOOR
The new »ESO: Greymoor« trailer lured us with a lot of atmosphere and atmospheric music.

Series

13 REASONS WHY - SEASON 4
The TV series have exciting new seasons for some highlight shows. So for example the 4th and last season about the history of the students at Liberty High. From June 5th on Netflix.

THE ALIENIST: ANGEL OF DARKNESS - SEASON 2
Here we were already thrilled by the first season. The trailer for season 2 trumps with images of bewitching, dark beauty. Runs on TNT, probably soon on Netflix.

DARK - SEASON 3
Who says the Germans can't make series? The time travel adventure enters its third round on June 27th.

Films

DA 5 BLOODS
The new Spike Lee Joint will be running on Netflix from June 12th. A no-brainer for us.

FORCE OF NATURE
A fast-paced action thriller with Mel Gibson. The trailer looks very neat. In the USA digitally on VoD from June 30th. No German launch date yet.

INFAMOUS
A Bonnie and Clyde story in the context of social media. An interesting approach, as we think! VoD, no German date yet.

RELIC
A little caution is always advised when it comes to horror movie trailers. Here, the IMDb score of 6.8 makes us quite confident.

ANTEBELLUM
Also »Antebellum« has a new trailer. We hope that there will also be a German launch date soon.

THE OLD GUARD
Charlize Theron in the film adaptation of Greg Rucka's celebrated graphic novel. An action fantasy adventure with immortals - we'll take a look. From July 10th on Netflix.

TENET
Our highlight of the week is of course the new Christopher Nolan film. We very much hope that Warner Bros. will stay on July 16th. Finally cinema again!

25.05.2020 • #RELEASETHESNYDERCUT

Rumors flared up again and again, and under #ReleaseTheSnyderCut, fans strongly advocated that the version of »Justice League« originally planned by Zack Snyder should be realized. According to DC & Warner that is actually going to happen!

We remember: Zack Snyder got out of the project after his daughter's suicide and Joss Whedon (Avengers 1 & 2) took over. The result was, well, let's say an average superhero movie. Since then, fans have wanted the Snyder Cut. The basis for this is the four-hour rough cut of the film. It is also rumored that the material could possibly be processed into a mini series.

Whenever a film disappointed us, we as fans naturally want a better version of the film. Will Zack Snyder be able to turn a mediocre film into a masterpiece? It will be interesting anyway and the comparison between the versions could also be exciting. The new version of »Justice League« is planned for 2021 on HBO-Max.

But honestly: we have already ticked off »Justice League« a bit and prefer to look ahead... since it won't be long until »Wonder Woman 1984« will start. We are really looking forward to see Gal Gadot again, especially after we listed the »Golden Armor Wonder Woman« by Hot Toys for preorder in our shop. An awesome figure, especially in the deluxe version with a wingspan of a whopping 67cm!

20.05.2020 • HOW DOES IT CONTINUE AT THE MOVIES?

The end of our abstinence from cinema caused by the corona pandemic will hopefully be over soon. The first cinemas will open their doors again in June.

The first blockbuster to find its way onto the screen is Christopher Nolan's »Tenet«. A film made for the big screen! The release date is July 16, but those responsible at Warner Bros. are having a little stomach ache. Because such an expensive film has to run worldwide so that it makes enough money. It is not enough if the cinemas only reopen in a few countries. If Warner decides to postpone the film, it will of course entail a whole lot of postponements.

The alternative date will be August 13, 2020 - that is currently the starting date of »Wonder Woman 1984«. Since no one wants two blockbusters to compete against each other and fight for the favor of the audience, the DC adventure would then be postponed to December. The domino game then continues, because »Dune« should start in December, which would then migrate to 2021 ...

We very much hope that Warner will stick to the original date and that the waiting time for some eagerly awaited films will not be extended again.

19.05.2020 • TRAILER TUESDAY

We are - also when it comes to movies - still a long way from normal. But in June and July the cinemas are supposed to open again one after another and gradually more famous names appear in the trailers.

Games:

CRUSADER KINGS 3
Would you like to dive into the Middle Ages again? Then the role-playing game »Crusader Kings 3« might be just the thing for you.

Series:

THE GOOD LORD BIRD
In this Showtime mini series, Ethan Hawke embodies the American abolitionist John Brown. The trailer looks promising.

Movies:

SECRET ZOO
This is a very lovable South Korean film. In comedy, timing is everything. In this trailer it is exactly on point. We had to laugh heartily more than once. If everything goes smoothly, it'll be in our cinemas on June 4th.

BODY CAM
This horror mystery thriller captivated us with its atmosphere. In the USA VoD on May 19, probably at our cinema on August 6.

SHIRLEY
The great Elizabeth Moss (The Invisible Man) plays horror author Shirley Jackson (The Haunting of Hill House) The film was shown at the Sundance Film Festival in January and at the Berlinale in February. Moss and Jackson and a trailer with hypnotic images - three reasons to go to the cinema.

UNHINGED
"He Can Happen To Anyone" - Russell Crowe as a menacing psychopath! The trailer turns the tension screw vigorously and gets more intense from second to second. Probably available in our Cinemas this fall.

18.05.2020 • HAPPY MOTU MONDAY!

Today is MOTU MONDAY - which means there is some great news for all »Masters of the Universe« fans out there! Just click into our special newsletter.

14.05.2020 • QUI... WHO?

Have you heard of Quibi? It stands for Quick Bites and it's a new streaming app that is exclusively designed for smartphones. The individual episodes are not longer than 10 minutes and can be watched in landscape or portrait format. The creator behind the service is former Disney and DreamWorks boss Jeffrey Katzenberg, who has a lot to say about revolutionizing the streaming world.

The trailers for the first series and also the actors like Christoph Waltz and Liam Hemsworth in the series "Most Dangerous Game" or Sophie Turner in "Survive" speak for quality. Furthermore there are also other actors: LeBron James, Jennifer Lopez, Reese Witherspoon, Will Smith, Laura Dern, Kevin Hart, Tyra Banks, Bill Murray and Laurence Fishburne. Directors such as Steven Spielberg and Guillermo del Toro have produced or directed series exclusively for the service.

The app is also already available in Germany, but only with content in the original audio. The free test period has now been reduced from 90 days to 14 days - afterwards the subscription in Germany is 8.99 € per month.

A good five weeks after the app was launched in the USA, the user numbers are sobering... Most of them end the experience before the free period is over. The people in charge see the Corona crisis as the main reason for the bad start - after all, people were hardly ever on the road anymore to get a quick series bite at the bus stop or while standing in line. And one function was deliberately omitted, as it actually completely contradicts the concept: the series cannot be streamed on TV...

If this already means a quick end of the platform?

13.05.2020 • MANDO NEWS ONCE AGAIN

May seems to be developing into the Star Wars month, because even beyond »May the 4th« exciting news are circulating in the galaxy.

In the second season of »The Mandalorian« there are prominent newcomers in front of and behind the camera. In addition to Ahsoka (Rosario Dawson), the popular character Bo-Katan will now appear in the series. She is embodied by Katee Sackhoff, who has already lent her voice to Bo-Katan Kryze in »Star Wars: The Clone Wars« and »Star Wars Rebels«. Not yet confirmed by Disney is the announcement that Temuera Morrison will return to the Star Wars universe to play Boba Fett. The news comes from the Hollywood Reporter, which is usually a trusted source. On the other hand, it has been officially announced that Peyton Reed (Ant-Man) and Robert Rodriguez (Sin City), two celebrated directors, have taken their seats in the director's chair.

So we can already say that we are expecting a very exciting second season. It will probably start in October.

12.05.2020 • TRAILER TUESDAY

The past week had a lot to offer, including a few series and films that we are looking forward to. But we give our greatest love this week to some new hot games...

SPACE FORCE
From the crew that brought you »The Office«, Space Force is coming soon to Netflix. A comedy series with Steve Carell and John Malkovich. The Space Force unit really does exist, it was founded by Donald Trump... Launched on May 29th on Netflix.

LITTLE FIRES EVERYWHERE
Based on the best-selling novel by Celeste Ng and starring Reese Witherspoon & Kerry Washington, the mini-series follows the residents of Shaker Heights, Ohio, as a mother and daughter newly enter the town and force the current residents to live their lives questioning. The trailer sparked our interest. Coming soon to Prim Video.

INMATE #1: THE RISE OF DANNY TREJO
Actor Danny Trejo spent much of his early life in prison. In this documentary, he talks about his career and how he has overcome a life full of crime and addiction. Exciting close-up of the »Machete« star!

BECKY
Bad-ass Lulu Wilson (Annabelle 2) and Kevin Smith (King of Queens) as the evil guy. Comedians are often best when they are allowed to play a villain. We are very curious. No appointment for Germany yet.

MAID OF SKER 
A new survival horror game inspired by the Welsh folklore that combines psychological and British Gothic horror. The trailer exudes atmosphere, but could not quite convince us. Available in June for PS4, Xbox One, and PC via Steam.

MORTAL KOMBAT XI AFTERMATH
Fans of the long-running fighting favorite »Mortal Kombat« can look forward to the Aftermath expansion. »Robocop« is there as a guest. Download possible from May 26th.

ASSASSIN’S CREED VALHALLA
Thanks to TV series such as »Vikings« and »The Last Kingdom«, Vikings are once again enjoying great attention. If you want to get into the fight, you have the chance in »Assassin's Creed Valhalla«. The Cinematic trailer is impressive. The game will be released in late 2020.

THE LAST OF US PART II
But we are really hot on »The Last of Us Part II«. The trailer promises us an emotional and complex story. The game will finally be released on June 19th.

06.05.2020 • STAR WARS BY THE JOJO RABBIT MAKER

Things are going really well for Taika Waititi at the moment! He made a name for himself with the indie pearl »What We Do in the Shadows«. With »Thor: Ragnarok« the New Zealander then arrived in the mainstream. For »Jojo Rabbit« he was awarded with an Oscar for the best adapted script. Most recently, he directed the final of the first season of »The Mandalorian«.

Disney now confirmed, Waititi will direct one of the new »Star Wars« movies and also will write the script together with the author Krysty Wilson-Cairns. The first of three new Star Wars films is set to hit theaters on December 16, 2022 - the others in 2024 and 2026.

Waititi is a real all-rounder and is characterized above all by his wonderful humor and his occasional mustache. It will be exciting to see what a breath of fresh air he will bring to the Star Wars franchise...

05.05.2020 • TRAILER TUESDAY

Today there are only series for our Trailer Tuesday. We are virtually traveling to Amsterdam, Ibiza, New England, 300 years back in time and to a galaxy far, far away...

VAN DER VALK
Do you remember the crime series »Van der Valk« with Barry Foster? The series gets a reboot. Amsterdam is always worth a visit. There's no start date for Germany yet.

WHITE LINES
The next destination of our virtual trip is Ibiza. The series WHITE LINES is by »Money Heist« creator Álex Pina. This alone is a reason to switch on! The body of a legendary Manchester DJ is found 20 years after his mysterious disappearance from Ibiza. From May 15th on Netflix.

BARKSKINS
The history of two families is traced for over 300 years. Their descendants are now confronted with the consequences of their ancestors' actions. That looks really good! Since this is a »National Geographic« series, it will surely find its way to us via Disney+.

LOVECRAFT COUNTRY

Our ears are ringing at the name "Lovecraft". It's a novel by Matt Ruff, Jordan Peele and J.J. Abrams are participating and HBO will be the home of this horror series - we do not need more information to reserve this series for August.

DISNEY GALLERY: THE MANDALORIAN
We love Star Wars! A documentary series that deals with all aspects of the »Mandalorian« production in eight episodes, is of course a must see for us. Interviews, never-before-seen footage and panel discussions moderated by Jon Favreau - we already have goose bumps.

04.05.2020 • MAY THE 4TH BE WITH YOU!

Happy STAR WARS DAY, dear Jedi Padawans, Sith Lords and womp rats! Today, the Midi-chlorians will go crazy, because there are of course countless goodies and gimmicks for all fans throughout the whole galaxy :-)

We will kick it off, namely with our 5 offers of the week which are obviously only consisting of STAR WARS items. Deal hunting season is open!

The biggest buzz today will surely happen on Disney+ and starwars.com. From today, »The Rise of Skywalker« and therefore the complete »Skywalker Saga« is available on demand. Further, we can look forward to a surely epic finale of the »Clone Wars« and also get a glimpse behind the scenes of »The Mandalorian« with the brand-new docu series »Disney Gallery«.

Speaking of "Mando": may we be treated with a first teaser on season 2...? That would be freakin' awesome! Until then, we can get our portion of goosebumps by this »Celebrating May the 4th in a Galaxy Far, Far Away« clip...

May the 4th be with You!

01.05.2020 • PRODUCT OF THE MONTH MAY 2020

The pick for our new product of the month led us again to the enchanting »Bishoujo« PVC statues line by the Japanese manufacturer KOTOBUKIYA. They just released a second version of the toxic, but very popular Gotham City Siren POISON IVY from their »DC Comics« license - and this one really got us!

This high grade figure is again based on an illustration by the talented artist Shunya Yamashita. It perfectly queues in along the existing line of the 1/7 scale statues and surely will be a highlight in every DC collection...

Our first batch is on the way to us and will hopefully arrive at the S.P.A.C.E Headquarter in a few days!

30.04.2020 • PINHEAD ENTERS SERIES PRODUCTION

"We have such sights to show you!"

With Pinhead and the Zenobites, Clive Barker gave us a whole group of iconic horror characters in the 80s. »Hellraiser« developed cult appeal and was the starting point for a new horror franchise in 1987, which admittedly weakened a bit in the last films.

Now the Hellraiser mythology is getting a series adaptation, we look forward to with great hope - because the series is produced by HBO. The pay TV station has always been a guarantee for high-quality series and is also not squeamish when it comes to depicting violence.

The other participants are also impressive: David Gordon Green, who recently breathed new life into »Halloween«, takes a seat on the director's chair for the first episodes. And the authors also sound promising: here we meet Michael Dougherty, (Trick 'r Treat, Krampus) and Mark Verheiden (Battlestar Galactica, Ash vs. Evil Dead)!

In addition to the series, there will also be a remake of the novel adaptation, although there is no connection between the series and the reboot. Of course we also hope that Doug Bradley will return as Pinhead .

"Ah, the suffering. The sweet, sweet suffering..."

29.04.2020 • AND THE OSCAR 2021 GOES TO...

Now there you go: movies that are broadcast exclusively on streaming platforms are eligible for an Oscar nomination. However, this - for many a long overdue - decision is a "one-time" exception for the 2021 Oscars. The reason for this is of course the Corona crisis - the Academy announced this last night.

However, we believe that this regulation will also apply to the following Academy Awards. After all, there are now countless fantastic productions by big players like NETFLIX, AMAZON and co. that are in no way inferior to the established studios and their cinema blockbusters...

28.04.2020 • TRAILER TUESDAY

We still have to wait for the arrival of new cinema blockbusters... That is why there are only three smaller films on our Trailer Tuesday list. They may will find their way to us. Our focus today, however, is on some TV series that the merry month of May brings us and makes it easier for us to stay at home.

THE COLOR ROSE
An A-list girl clique starts a secret cult in their small religious town. Each of them embody one of the seven deadly sins. It all goes horribly wrong as they go missing one by one... The trailer made us curious.

MOST LIKELY TO MURDER
We stay in the genre of teenage thrillers. The trailer of this independent production promises a murderously evil cheerleading story. Let's see...

WE ARE LITTLE ZOMBIES
Four orphans form a band. The clip is wonderfully weird and oscillates eccentrically between tragedy, comedy, music film, social criticism and teenage angst.

UPLOAD
In the near future, people who are close to death can be "uploaded" in virtual reality environments. The sci-fi comedy series by Greg Daniels (The Office, Parks and Recreation) starts on May 1st (so this Friday) on Prime Video. We still add a question mark to this.

FRAGGLE ROCK: ROCK ON!
For young and young-at-heart viewers, Apple TV+ brings Jim Henson's Fraggles back to the screen. Rock on!

INTO THE NIGHT
As the sun starts to kill everything in its path, a plane full of passengers attempt to fly west into the safety of the darkness - into the Night - to escape its destructive power. The Netflix mini series starts on Friday. That looks promising!

SNOWPIERCER
In the series adaptation of the celebrated Bong Joon Ho film »Snowpiercer« we definitely hang on the hook after this trailer. The series starts on TNT in the USA on May 17 and is scheduled to appear on Netflix shortly thereafter.

HOLLYWOOD
»Hollywood« follows a group of aspiring actors and filmmakers in post-World-War-II Hollywood as they try to make it in Tinseltown - no matter the cost. Each character offers a unique glimpse behind the gilded curtain of Hollywood's Golden Age. That looks really good! Launch is already this Friday, on Netflix.

23.04.2020 • VENOM 2

Andy Serkis, who will be directing Sony's VENOM in the sequel, has - of course extremely proud and with great anticipation - shared a very first clip of VENOM 2 on his social media channels. It only shows the official logo, the updated start date (June 25, 2021) and the very cool subtitle »Let there be Carnage«... but hey! Until we get to see something of the bad guy CARNAGE (Woody Harrelson), it will probably take some time until the first real trailer is released.

We think it'll be fun... especially since Andy Serkis is a great filmmaker - not only in front of the camera, but also behind it.

22.04.2020 • MANDO, ROUND THREE!

More news popped up on Disney+'s icon THE MANDALORIAN! After a late april's spoof in form of a parody trailer for season 2 which IGN dropped on Monday, »Variety« just reported that another (so the third) season of the STAR WARS show is confirmed!

It seems that Jon Favreau is already workin' on it and also the art department is creating concept designs. In our yesterday's HOME ALONE live-stream Sven and his guest Toby (@MotUDad) were talking about it :-)

Wouldn't May the 4th be the perfect day for a first, real trailer on the 2nd season of »The Mandalorian«? And imagine we would even get to see a glimpse of Ahsoka Tano... :o)

21.04.2020 • TRAILER TUESDAY

We are still far from normal. That is why - in many of our trailer discoveries - we do not know whether and when the presented movies and series will find a home in Germany.

Today we start with three games that flashed us:

OBSERVER SYSTEM REDUX
The trailer for the next-gen remake of the Bloober Team's 2017 cyberpunk horror game looks really damn cool. Rutger Hauer's participation alone is a huge plus for us here.

GEARS TACTICS
The riotous survival game comes with cool one liners and with this well-assembled trailer it really makes us hungry for the game. PC version already available from April 28th.

LITTLE HOPE
The horror game from »The Dark Pictures anthology« trumps with a lot of atmosphere and made the horror fans at the S.P.A.C.E headquarter eager to play it.

TIME WARP: THE GREATEST CULT FILMS OF ALL-TIME VOL. 1
We really hope that this documentary mini series about cult movies from »Rocky Horror Picture Show« to »The Big Lebowski« will also find its way to Germany.

THE SILENCE OF THE MARSH
The Spanish thriller with Pedro Alonso (»Money Heist«) will be available on Netflix from Wednesday on. Just to see the charismatic »Berlin« actor Alonso is worth a watch.

PROXIMITY
A young NASA scientist is kidnapped by aliens, but since no one believes his story, he's obsessed with finding evidence... Could be something - unfortunately, there's no German release date yet.

CAPONE
The film shines a light on the last chapter in Al Capone's life. He is no longer the same after he was released from prison. Now, in the 1940s, memories of his violent past are increasingly troubling him and his mental state is deteriorating. A prime role for Tom Hardy. We are sure that sooner or later this movie will find its way to the big screens in Germany.

20.04.2020 • SDCC 2020

We had feared it for quite some time, now the official confirmation was just a formality: the SAN DIEGO COMIC CON 2020 is cancelled - for the first time in the history of the SDCC! Of course this makes us sad, but the cancellation of such a highly frequented event is more than understandable. Health comes first!

We are excited about what the manufacturers / exhibitors will come up with, as plan B so to say. Maybe some kind of collaborative online convention where at least trailers are revealed, panels are held and of course product innovations are presented...?

We, as well, will consider a consolation version and not just let July pass by unnoticed. After all, this is the 50th anniversary of Comic Con! The SDCC started modestly in 1970 with 300 participants and grew over the years into one of the biggest pop-cultural events on the planet. For most of us SDCC was simply always there... No question, this birthday will be celebrated by us, even if only virtually. In this sense: SDCC 4 ever!

16.04.2020 • DR. RAIMI STRANGE

The rumor mill had been going on for a long time - now Sam Raimi (»Evil Dead«, »Spider-Man«) has officially confirmed it in an interview: he will take over the direction of »Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness«!

The film is supposed to be MARVEL's first horror film. We are excited to see how high the horror dose will be, because the Marvel universe is more known for offering family-friendly entertainment. We doubt that - thanks to Sam Raimi - Gore-Hounds will find their pleasure here...

15.04.2020 • DUNE

One of the hottest films of the year (assuming December 17 can be held as a launch date) is without a doubt »Dune«. The first film adaptation of David Lynch had its moments but ultimately failed with critics and audiences. Now all hopes of the sci-fi fans rest on Denis Villeneuve. Good chances are that he will finally give Frank Herbert's classic a worthy adaptation.

The first photos were published via VANITY FAIR yesterday. For example, we see Timothée Chalamet as Paul Atreides, Oscar Isaac as Duke Leto Atreides, Zendaya as Chani, Rebecca Ferguson as Lady Jessica, Josh Brolin as Gurney Halleck and Jason Momoa as Duncan Idaho. This first look at actors and costumes increases our anticipation for the film immensely. The stylish logo is also impressive. The music was written by Hans Zimmer - which is another reason to look forward to the movie!

And... oh man... great action figures could be made for that. Hot toys... are you listening?

14.04.2020 • TRAILER TUESDAY

Stay Home is still the order and that's why we only have previews from the small screen for you - a game, a DVD and three Netflix movies:

FALLOUT 76 - WASTELANDERS
There's an update to »Fallout 76«, called »Wastelanders«, which is supposed to iron out some weaknesses of the online game. We haven't played Fallout 76 yet, but the look of the Wastelanders trailer really appeals to us.

OUTBACK
The Australian outback can be murderous and you don't even need a Mick Taylor. This survival thriller is turning the tension screw. Watching the trailer, we are exceptionally glad that we are not allowed to travel. There is no German release date yet.

THE HALF OF IT
This Coming of Age story reminds us of the Cyrano von Bergerac story. The young actors quickly won us over (on May 1st on Netflix).

DANGEROUS LIES
When a wealthy elderly man dies and unexpectedly leaves his estate to his new caregiver, she's drawn into a web of deception and murder. The trailer for this Netflix thriller made us curious. With happy anticipation we will find out on April 30 what the film is good for.

EXTRACTION
And finally an action cracker with Chris Hemsworth. Tyler Rake is a fearless black market mercenary who embarks on the deadliest mission of his career when he’s enlisted to rescue the kidnapped son of an international crime lord. Produced by Joe and Anthony Russo (Avengers: Endgame). That makes us sit up and take notice. Available on Netflix April 24.

08.04.2020 • NEWS FROM THE PS5

Slowly more and more facts are becoming known about the PlayStation 5, which is expected to be released around Christmas 2020. Yesterday, SONY made a big splash by unveiling the final design... of the controller. "Oh come on, why not the design of the console itself?" you might ask. But isn't the design, the function and the ergonomics of the controller one of the most important things? We do think so. :D

»DualShock 4« will become »DualSense« - the haptic feedback will play a decisive role. According to Hideaki Nishino (Senior Vice President, Platform Planning & Management), they for example "[...] incorporated adaptive triggers into the L2 and R2 buttons of DualSense so you can truly feel the tension of your actions, like when drawing a bow to shoot an arrow." That sounds awesome and will surely bring a whole new gaming experience!

You can certainly argue about the color scheme - we definitely think the look is very nice!

07.04.2020 • TRAILER TUESDAY

In today's Trailer Tuesday there is again a colorful mix of clips, whereby the least of it is intended for the big screen:

ENDZONE
The world has been destroyed, but we will live on!
The German publisher Assemble Entertainment presents »Endzone«, a post-apocalyptic survival building game in which you will start a new civilization with a group of people after a global nuclear disaster. The trailer looks promising, but today we're not in the mood for the apocalypse.

PENINSULA

Nothing helps, because it continues apocalyptically. »Peninsula«, the sequel to the South Korean zombie film or »Train to Busan« from 2016, looks like a real nail biter again.

OUTER BANKS
Four friends, a summer and $400 million in gold: »Outer Banks« is coming to Netflix on April 15. This coming of age story is all about a tight-knit group of local teens in the Outer Banks of North Carolina. Forbidden romances, a high-stakes treasure hunt, a summer filled with mystery and adventure... Let's see if the series will be something. The trailer hasn't really convinced us yet.

LAST MOMENT OF CLARITY
After his girlfriend Georgia (Samara Weaving, »Ready or Not«) is murdered by European gangsters, Sam (Zach Avery, »Fury«) flees to Paris to hide out. Years later, he sees a woman in a Hollywood film that he is sure is Georgia. A twisty thriller in Hitchcock-style that will keep you guessing until the final frame.

RICK & MORTY
The trailer underlaid with »The boys are back in town« by Thin Lizzy really makes us want to watch the fourth season of »Rick & Morty«. The start date is May 3.

06.04.2020 • MCU PHASE 4 - RESCHEDULED

The current corona crisis is of course also affecting the film industry and is causing all originally planned cinema releases to be postponed. This also applies to Phase 4 of the »Marvel Cinematic Universe«. On April 3, DISNEY announced the updated release dates for all planned Marvel live action movies.

BLACK WIDOW will therefore be released on November 6, 2020. The debut of the new superhero team THE ETERNALS is postponed to February 12, 2021. SHANG-CHI AND THE LEGEND OF THE TEN RINGS is scheduled to start on May 7, 2021. DOCTOR STRANGE IN THE MULTIVERSE OF MADNESS will then follow on November 5, 2021.

A previously unnamed Marvel film turns out to be the sequel to CAPTAIN MARVEL! The theatrical release is July 8, 2022. The sequels of THOR (LOVE AND THUNDER, February 18, 2022) and BLACK PANTHER (May 6, 2022) as well as another, yet untitled Marvel blockbuster (October 7, 2022) will follow in 2022.

So... according to the current state of affairs, the MCU will not be available for another seven months. So what's your recipe for superhero detox?

02.04.2020 • STATUE SPRING SALE

Without much advance notice, we rang in our STATUE SPRING SALE yesterday at the start of the month. We have checked our stocks all day long and have already put more than 60 statues into the sale. You will find collectibles from manufacturers like SIDESHOW, TWEETERHEAD, GAMING HEADS, PRIME1, TSUME and many more - all reduced by 20%! The special offer runs throughout April - of course only while stocks last. Have another look today, because DC COLLECTIBLES, WETA and DIAMOND SELECT TOYS will definitely follow.

So spring can come now... ;) Have fun shopping!

01.04.2020 • PRODUCT OF THE MONTH APRIL 2020

Our Product of the Month April is a no-brainer for us, since it is a real movie and horror icon: Nosferatu. With his portrayal of the ratty Count Orlok, Max Schreck has secured a place in the eternal Hall of Fame of cinema. The director Friedrich Wilhelm Murnau created one of the masterpieces of German Expressionism in 1922 with the film, which bears the subtitle "eine Symphonie des Grauens (a symphony of horror)". And what luck we had, because after a lost lawsuit with Bram Stoker's widow due to alleged copyright infringement, all copies of the film were supposed to be destroyed at that time. But some of them had already made it abroad and so this treasure of film history was preserved.

The manufacturer Quarantine Studio (strange how the name fits into the current world situation) erects a worthy monument to the bloodsucker in the form of a fantastic bust in 1/2 scale - superbly sculpted and of course artistically painted by hand. The worldwide number of copies is only 300.

We think Nosferatu is a real gem that will enhance any film and horror collection.

31.03.2020 • TRAILER TUESDAY

It feels as if the movie and series industry has sunk into (forced) disappearance. So for our Trailer Tuesday we had to dig a little deeper to bring a few interesting clips to daylight. It has not yet been determined whether and when we will be able to watch the associated films and series in Germany...

THE WRETCHED
A boy discovers a thousand-year-old witch in his neighborhood, disguised as a normal next door woman. The trailer looks quite passable. Whether May 1st can be kept as a US start date is rather questionable though.

SURVIVE THE NIGHT
Bruce Willis in a home invasion story. The wheel is certainly not being reinvented here, but the trailer looks pretty promising. The film starts as a VoD release on May 22nd in the US. Nothing is known about a German release yet.

MONEY HEIST
We don't have to introduce »Money Heist« anymore. Netflix has launched a small countdown teaser to keep us eager for this highlight. From April 3rd you can start to binge it.

DEFENDING JACOB
»Defending Jacob« is an Apple TV+ thriller series, based on the bestseller of the same name by William Landay. The minor son of a lawyer is suspected of murder. That could be something.

THE GREAT

»The Great« is a satirical, comedic drama about the rise of Catherine the Great from outsider to the longest reigning female ruler in Russia's history. The trailer of this Hulu series is already full with fantastic gags. Those who liked »The Favorite« will love »The Great«. Let's hope that the series will find its way onto the German screens.

26.03.2020 • MANDO MEETS AHSOKA

»Deadline« recently reported that Ahsoka Tano will appear in season 2 of »The Mandalorian«. The fan favorite from »The Clone Wars« thus makes the leap into the first live-action series in the STAR WARS Universe. It has already been confirmed that Ahsoka is played by Rosario Dawson (Sin City). However, it will probably only be a relatively small guest appearance at first.

There are currently speculations whether Ahsoka Tano will get her own Star Wars live-action series. Although Disney has not yet confirmed this, we can't rule it out either, because »The Mandalorian« is the best horse in the Disney + stable. And the fact that the streaming service will offer a whole bunch of new Star Wars series is probably as certain as a double sunset on Tatooine.

24.03.2020 • TRAILER TUESDAY

It is not surprising that in the times of the Corona crisis and the lockdown of public life things are a bit calmer when it comes to movie trailers. The big studios seem to be rearranging and since nobody knows when the cinemas will re-open again,  they hold back the release of new trailers. Productions were stopped or put on hold. Films that have already started such as »Bloodshot« and »Birds of Prey« will probably be released much earlier than planned for home cinema. So it happens that we can only come up with a few smaller films on our Trailer Tuesday. Maybe there are a few pearls hidden among these films.

WE SUMMON THE DARKNESS
Serial killings with a satanic background in the American Midwest. Three girls on the road trip to a heavy metal concert meet a few musicians and organize an aftershow party. As more and more corpses appear, the fun is over. That doesn't sound very original at first, but the heavy metal setting makes us cautiously optimistic.

BEHIND YOU
Two young sisters find that all the mirrors in their estranged aunt's house are hidden. When one of them finds a mirror in the basement, she unknowingly releases a malicious demon. We don't expect anything from this film. It just looks too much like dozens of well-known knitting patterns, including the inevitable jump scares.

KOKO-DI KOKO-DA
The trailer of this Swedish-Danish production seems a bit more original. A couple is terrorized in the forest by a sideshow artist and his entourage and dragged into a maelstrom of psychological terror and humiliating slapstick.

TAPE
The trailer of this indie film doesn't reveal very much yet. »Tape« is based on real events and takes place in New York City. An aspiring actress (Isabelle Fuhrman) gets to know the dark side of the entertainment industry. It is difficult to say whether the film will find its way to us. We would love to see Isabelle Fuhrman (Orphan) again.

HIPPOPOTAMUS
Ruby wakes from a bad dream to find herself in a real life nightmare. She's trapped in a basement, her legs are broken and she can't remember who she is or how she got there. Her kidnapper, Tom, tells her she will remain captive until she falls in love with him. The trailer for this film, made in the UK, looks very exciting and has definitely sparked our interest.

23.03.2020 • DISNEY+ KICKS OFF!

From tomorrow, the in-house streaming service of the media giant DISNEY will finally kick off also in Germany, Austria, Switzerland and many other European countries!

If you decided early enough, you surely was able to grab the early-bird special deal. In Germany, Disney+ is regularly available for 6,99 EUR per month. Some of the S.P.A.C.E Crew haven't been able to resist and already signed up for their subscription :o)

Of course, »The Mandalorian« is Disney+'s strongest show, but also the whole »Marvel« Universe and especially also the wonderful documentaries of the »National Geographic« will probably be very interesting for many out there.

We think that the launch of Disney+ will be very successful, especially in the current BETTER-STAY-AT-HOME times. So, to all of you who already signed up: have fun goggling :-)

18.03.2020 • IMPORTANT NOTE

As surely everyone has noticed, from today on, retail shops in most branches have to stay closed.

Since we do not run a physical store, but a pure online shop, the S.P.A.C.E headquarter will of course continue to operate "normally" as long as possible. We are of course very grateful for this and at the same time, we are appropriately careful, both at work and in our contact with each other.

Stay healthy, stay positive - but stay at home!

Your S.P.A.C.E Crew

17.03.2020 • TRAILER TUESDAY

The movie theaters are closed for now and many film premieres have been postponed to autumn. Nobody can say when we will see the films on our Trailer Tuesday list. Even though we have still a lot on the current list, this time there is no big cinema hit on it. Because we should stay better at home, binge watching and gaming is the choice. Hello dear sofa!

JUNGLE CRUISE
Disney is filming another theme park attraction with »Jungle Cruise«. That has worked well before, so why not try again. So far, however, this has not quite convinced us.

ABOUT ENDLESSNESS
Director Roy Andersson creates a cinematic reflection on human life in all its beauty and cruelty, splendor and simplicity. Looks like arthouse, but the minimalistic, monochrome trailer makes quite curious about the film.

ARKANSAS
With this crime thriller, it was once again the cast that caught our attention: John Malkovich, Vince Vaughn, Liam Hemsworth.

SOUL
A Pixar movie is always worth a visit. The new film about the music teacher Joe Gardner explores interesting existential questions. Where do our emotions, preferences and personal interests come from? What makes us what we are?

SEVEN STAGES TO ACHIEVE ETERNAL BLISS BY PASSING THROUGH THE GATEWAY CHOSEN BY THE HOLY STORSH
Claire (Kate Micucci) and Paul (Sam Huntington) are happy about their new apartment in LA. But they have to realize that their home is a popular location for suicides, because the guru Storsh (Taika Waititi) once lived here and put an end to his life in the bathtub. His followers follow his example ... That seems really strange. We are hooked.

THE THIRD DAY
The six-part HBO mystery series with Jude Law and Naomie Harris will start on May 12 in the original version on Sky Atlantic. The trailer reminds us a bit of »Wicker Man«. That could be something.

HOME BEFORE DARK
In the center of the Apple TV + series stands the nine-year-old Hilde Lisko (Brooklynn Prince), who moves from Brooklyn with her father Matthew (Jim Sturgess) to his hometown. There she tries to solve the secret of an old murder case. The young journalist convinced us in the trailer.

STAR GIRL
Another DC series starts at CW Network on May 12. Teen girl Courtney Whitmore's aka »Star Girl« teams up with the Justice Society of America to fight villains. Seems to be aimed at a younger audience.

FOLLIA DEAR FATHER
»Follia - Dear Father« is a new stealth survival horror game. The trailer is very atmospheric and really makes you want to sneak through the horror scenario. The game should appear shortly.

DOOM ETERNAL
»Doom« certainly played an important role in the socialization of many first-person shooter gamers. »Doom Eternal« calls some memories and it looks damn good. Announced for March 20.

16.03.2020 • THE DC ALL STARS BY HOT TOYS

In two days, a special exhibition called »DC All Stars« will launch at the »Toy Sapiens« store, the Japanese headquarter of HOT TOYS. All DC fans will surely get very excited, because there's a lot more to see than just loads of collectibles (and exclusives). Besides original costumes from the blockbusters »Birds of Prey«, »Wonder Woman« and »Joker« there will be a very cool photo-point, also in the »Birds of Prey« theme (incl. a sofa and Bruce, the hyena).

For us from afar it's probably the absolute brand hot reveal of these three 1/6 figures - so to say their world premiere - which is the most interesting thing: Wonder Woman (Golden Armor Version) from »Wonder Woman 1984«, Batman from »Batman Forever« and Harley Quinn from the »Batman: Arkham Knight« game.

Gladly the first images are already making their loop online. You can get some impressions in this Facebook album!

Of course we will list all these new items on our website as soon as they are open for pre-order :-)

12.03.2020 • ONE JOKER REMAINS FOR US

Since we fear that we will have to stop all visits to the movie theater soon, we all only have the home cinema left... Today, for example, our movie of the year 2019 is released as a preserve: JOKER. Of course, as usual on DVD, Blu-ray, 4K-Ultra-HD Blu-ray and for collecting enthusiasts as a limited Steel Book.

If you were hoping for a Director's or something like that, you will unfortunately be disappointed. Director Todd Phillips has a very clear opinion: "I hate f***ing extended cuts. I hate deleted scenes, they’re deleted for a reason. The movie that exists is exactly the movie I want it to be and I will never show a deleted scene."

10.03.2020 • TRAILER TUESDAY

The last week was not as full of new trailers. But there were a few real highlights in terms of game, cinema and TV series. We have these six productions that caused anticipation:

GHOST OF TSUSHIMA
Sony brings us »Ghost of Tsushima« on June 26, 2020 for Playstation 4. The trailer really makes you want to join this epic samurai adventure. Sharpen your katana!

BABA YAGA
With this production from Russia we are still a little torn. Definitely, the trailer scores with quite atmospheric pictures. We can only hope that the horror will not be exhausted in the now so tiresome jump scares.

GREYHOUND
In the war drama »Greyhound« based on the novel »The Good Shepard« by C. S. Forester, Tom Hanks leads a convoy of 37 allied ships that is threatened by German submarines in the North Atlantic. It looks exciting!

PENNY DREADFUL: CITY OF ANGELS
The »Penny Dreadfull« Spin-Off takes us to Los Angeles in the year 1938. The trailer looks very valuable and has a nice neo-noir atmosphere. Unfortunately there is no German TV channel yet - but surely something will be found there.

BLACK WIDOW
The final trailer for »Black Widow« offers a lot of action as well as a little more of Natasha Romanoff's family history. We look forward to see Scarlett Johansson, Florence Pugh, Rachel Weisz and David Harbor. Will Hot Toys bring us a Red Guardian 1/6 scale figure?

MONEY HEIST SEASON 4
We hadn't expected the new season of the Netflix series so quickly... From April 3, the story about Tokyo, the Professor and the Inspectora continues. After seeing the trailer we are really hot for the sequel.

09.03.2020 • THE LAST OF US AS SERIES

While we all eagerly await the sequel to the game »The Last of Us«, there was surprising news. The Hollywood reporter wrote, there will be a TV series adaptation of the game - and not just somewhere, but at the number 1 series manufacturer HBO!

The broadcaster is working on the series with game producer Naughty Dog and Sony Pictures Television. Game director Neil Druckmann and Craig Mazin, who stepped into the spotlight with his mini-series »Chernobyl«, are working on the scripts. We think that sounds very promising.

05.03.2020 • THE S.P.A.C.E TOP 5 AT THE MOVIES IN MARCH

Comic, Disney live action and a lot of thrill and horror - these are our movie favorites in March. Curtain up for our top 5:

Number 5:
RUN | Theatrical release: 19.03.2020
The trailer really picked us up here. We hope that the film delivers what the trailer promised.

Number 4:
MULAN | Theatrical release: 26.03.2020
We look forward to Disney's visually stunning live action spectacle with Yifei Liu as a real bad-ass Mulan. The movie is in good hands with Niki Caro (Whale Rider).

Number 3:
A QUIET PLACE PART II | Theatrical release: 19.03.2020
After the success of »A Quiet Place«, a sequel was of course inevitable. Often, sequals are just brazen cash grabs, but in the case of »A Quiet Place« we have the feeling that there is actually still something to tell here.

Number 2:
COLOR OUT OF SPACE | Theatrical release: 05.03.2020
The response to the film is positive among the critics and the audience. And when director Richard Stanley takes on a Lovecraft story, there are two reasons for visiting the theater.

Number 1️:
BLOODSHOT | Theatrical release: 05.03.2020
The first reviews were rather mixed here. Let us surprise ourselves. As fans of the comic book, the film is a no brainer for us.

The S.P.A.C.E Crew wishes you good times at the movies!

03.03.2020 • TRAILER TUESDAY

Trailers advertise films, series or games. The best make you curious about the work without giving away too much. Ideally, the film, series or game will give us what the trailer promises or even exceed our expectations. But there are also trailers that tend to dampen our anticipation and we may go to the cinema with mixed expectations or perhaps prefer to stay at home. On today's Trailer Tuesday we have a little bit of everything.

BALDUR'S GATE 3
The opening cinematic game trailer, which is over five minutes long, actually looks like big cinema and makes us want to get involved in the world of »Baldur's Gate« for the third time.

THE PLOT AGAINST AMERICA
HBO's mini-series based on the novel by Philip Roth tells an alternative story in which Franklin D. Roosevelt loses the presidential election against Charles Lindbergh and the result is a fascist takeover in the United States. HBO stands for high quality series. So that could be very exciting.

STAR WARS: THE CLONE WARS SEASON 7
Fans of the Star Wars animation series get a taste of the final season of the series that will start on Disney+ soon.

STAR WARS: THE HIGH REPUBLIC | ANNOUNCEMENT TRAILER
Speaking of Star Wars, after the end of the Skywalker saga, the Star Wars universe continues to expand. The authors of Lucasfilm make a leap in time into the past. 200 years prior to the events of »Star Wars: the Phantom Menace«, the Galactic Republic and the Jedi Order are at their height, serving and protecting the galaxy. Lucasfilm is currently exploring the narrative possibilities of the High Republic era. We think, this approach sounds really interesting.

THE ALPHA TEST
We actually love robot films. But this trailer looks more like trash. Even if the robot mask is quite creepy, the trailer looks quite cheap and sometimes involuntarily funny.

SAINT MAUDE
A brilliantly unsettling blend of body horror and psychological thriller, Saint Maud marks an impressive debut for writer-director Rose Glass, says Rotten Tomatoes. A current critic score of 92% and A24 behind the production let us hope for a great film.

ARTEMIS FOWL
Disney brings us Eoin Colfer's book series as an opulent, family-friendly and easy-to-digest blockbuster movie. The trailer offers a lot of show values. But as you can read, fans of the book series are shocked by the second trailer. We also have mixed feelings about it.

CANDYMAN
When it comes to reboots, we usually have mixed feelings, because they rarely match or even surpass the original. But maybe »Candyman« is one of the exceptions to the rule. The trailer looks quite promising.

02.03.2020 • PRODUCT OF THE MONTH MARCH 2020

For our product of the month March 2020, we decided to go for a high-end collectible by the manufacturer PURE ARTS for the first time: the YHORM statue out of the videogame hit »Dark Souls III«.

Although the Canadian studio PURE ARTS has been in the business for a couple of years, their activities were more behind the scenes (as producer for established brands like mainly SIDESHOW). One of their jobs for example was the »Court of the Dead« PVC statue series which was released last year and became very popular. Now, the Canadians want to go their own, direct ways and discover the collector-market as a new player in the game. We had the chance to meet the nice crew of PURE ARTS at Nuernberg Toy Fair and the quality of their products convinced us instantly.

One of their first, literally "big" highlight is the colossal YHORM THE GIANT from »Dark Souls III«. The version in 1:12 scale (sounds small, but it's huge!) comes with an extravagant LED light-up feature which really is the top of the cake of this statue. The consenting and very impressive overall picture, including the massive throne, the details in the base, the giant machete and the different materials (including art fur in the coat) will surely blow away all fans of the game and the character.

We are excited about how PURE ARTS will develop. Everything that we have been able to see (including the prototypes of their 1/6 scale figures on CYBERPUNK 2077) appeared really good in our eyes. Therefore we are happy to support this newcomer and gladly picked one of their pieces as our highlight of this month.

26.02.2020 • NEW YORK TOY FAIR 2020, AGAIN!

Because of this year's NEW YORK TOY FAIR being fully packed with highlights of all kind of brands, we will recap one more round today for you, with some more worth mentioning novelties:

* Dark Horse will extend their popular line of PVC statues by one of the year's hottest licenses: CYBERPUNK 2077!
* Kotobukiya revealed the next MARVEL ARTFX Premier Statue - Captain Marvel - and showed some (yet unpainted) prototypes of the upcoming super-sexy BISHOUJO chicks like Leatherface, Pennywise, Beetlejuice and Black Cat!
* Mattel somehow is making a huge secret around the MASTERS OF THE UNIVERSE Origins line and finally showed the previously teasered line-up for 2020!
* The manufacturer Trick or Treat Studios will step into the 1/6 sector with - how else could it be - different horror icons. Already four »Michael Myers« figures on the HALLOWEEN movies are in planning, aswell as a »Art the Clown« on TERRIFIER!
* The design studio Mondo was displaying their MASTERS OF THE UNIVERSE 1/6 Scale Man-At-Arms for the first time, in his whole glory and with mustache!

Some more infos and a bunch of photos can also be found on ACTION FIGURE DISTRICT. Really worth seeing and a lot better than the usual evening TV program are the videos from the legendary PIXEL DAN. Check out his booth tours and the interviews at NECA, DC or McFARLANE TOYS with the Toddfather himself!

25.02.2020 • TRAILER TUESDAY

On today's Trailer Tuesday we have another colorful mix for you, a game, a series and three films.

FORTNITE CHAPTER 2 - SEASON 2
In this »Fortnite« trailer, the music creates a real James Bond mood. We admit that none of us have played the game yet, but the weird characters make us want to.

MONOS
The press release for the film states: A Colombian “Lord of the Flies” that merges the madness of Werner Herzog with the technical perfection of James Cameron. It doesn't sound bad. The reviews are good too. And the optics definitely make us want to watch the film.

ESCAPE FROM PRETORIA
Based on the real-life prison break of two political captives, »Escape From Pretoria« is a race-against-time thriller set in the tumultuous apartheid days of South Africa. Daniel Radcliffe plays one of the leading roles. That looks promising.

RUN
They say you can never escape a mother’s love... but for Chloe, that’s not a comfort - it’s a threat. There’s something unnatural, even sinister about the relationship between Chloe (newcomer Kiera Allen) and her mom, Diane (Sarah Paulson). After the trailer for this suspense thriller, we're definitely on the hook.

WESTWORLD SEASON 3
We are of course particularly hot for the third season of »Westworld«. It will run on Sky Atlantic from March 30th. And hey ... Aaron Paul is on board.

24.02.2020 • NEW YORK TOY FAIR 2020

The most important event of the new year for the toy industry and for us collectible junkies definately is NEW YORK TOY FAIR. Of course, Nuernberg International Toy Fair might be bigger, but especially American brands tend to reveal their most spectacular product novelties at home.

Since last Saturday, the Big Apple totally got into toy mode for four days. The show will last until tomorrow - but thanks to social networks many new stuff that's on display already is making the loop. We are going to round up a bunch of our personal highlights in the first step here:

* Hasbro goes on full speed with GHOSTBUSTERS: the completely new classy »Plasma Series« on the movie, a re-release of the Kenner figures of »The Real Ghostbusters« and a new line for the younger audience!
* Mezco Toyz is expanding their popular »One:12 Collective« series with ALIEN and PREDATOR figures!
* There will be LORD OF THE RINGS Select figures from Diamond Select Toys - and the first prototypes are looking damn good!
* New busts and statues by DST or Gentle Giant on STAR WARS: CLONE WARS and THE MANDALORIAN!
* Iron Studios has shown their very impressive 1:10 Wonder Woman statue in her golden armor on WONDER WOMAN 1984!
* Also very well done appears the 1:10 Harley Quinn statue with the hyena from BIRDS OF PREY!
* And Iron Studios will continue with their LORD OF THE RINGS license and is showing Gimli, Legolas and Gollum as 1:10 Art Scale statues!
* McFarlane Toys will bring two Wonder Woman versionen of the new movie within their DC MULTIVERSE line!
* Great Scott, Neca scored a BACK TO THE FUTURE license and is kicking off here with two versions of Marty McFly as Ultimate Figures: Marty and Darth Vader from planet Vulcan!
* The TURTLES line-up from Neca will be extended again with new animated figures and the first ones on TMNT2: SECRET OF THE OOZE: Super Shredder, Takka and Rahza!
* The GREMLINS will also keep on creating chaos at Neca. You have to see the diorama which a fan from St. Louis created for Neca and built that up at their booth - freakin' awesome!
* DC Collectibles of course is also there with a couple of great DC novelties, like for instance the Bombshells Black Canary & Green Lantern statue, the Red, White and Black Harley Quinn by Julian Tedesco statue and a whole new statue line which will only focus on the Joker: Clown Prince of Crime!

We will probably throw in some more on Wednesday, because the fair obviously was fully packed with interesting new products and the exhibitors put a lot of effort in their performances. Great coverages can be found with our friends of figures.com, Toyark or Exclucollective.

20.02.2020 • CAESAR'S LEGACY

It's clear to everybody that the media giant DISNEY is grabbing the rights of countless movies or movie series by buying out other studios. This also happened with the latest "shopping tour" by the assimilation of »20th Century Fox«. A big and very popular franchise of Fox was »Planet of the Apes«. Disney CEO Chef Bob Iger already announced last year that the apes will go on somehow...

In the meantime, Wes Ball is confirmed as the director for the new project (since Matt Reeves is now more into bats) and he just made clear via Twitter that his »Planet of the Apes« film will definately not be a remake or reboot, but that Caesar's  legacy will rahter live on instead. Doesn't that sound pretty good? Surely it will keep us save from another warm-up. Perhaps Wes Ball will even be able to build a nice bridge between the trilogy of the prequel stories and the timeline of the old movies.

Speaking of »Planet of the Apes«: one of our absolute premium brands, TSUME ART from Luxemburg, seems to have forseen the news and hooked up by announcing the astonishing »Ape not Kill Ape« HQS+ Statue some days ago. Definately take a look at it - you can find it already listed for pre-order with us ;-)

19.02.2020 • BATTLESTAR GALACTICA SPIN-OFF

»Battlestar Galactica« is a TV classic in two ways. Either the 1978 original with Lorne Greene as Commander Adama or the new edition from 2005 with Edward James Olmos, which also gained many viewers. The idea of a reboot, however, was not well received by the fans. If not superfluous, then at least much too early. But now there is an all clear...

Sam Esmail, creator of the new show in planning, explained on Twitter:
BSG fans, this will NOT be a remake of the amazing series Ron D Moore launched because... why mess with perfection? Instead, we’ll explore a new story within the mythology while staying true to the spirit of Battlestar. So say we all!

This means that we can expect a kind of spin-off within the BSG universe. That could be exciting. We hope that the new series will rock and be more successful than the previous short-lived offsprings »Caprica« or »Battlestar Galactica - Blood & Chrome«.

18.02.2020 • TRAILER TUESDAY

A number of new trailers were released in the past week. For today's Trailer Tuesday we have put six titles on our watchlist.

STRANGER THINGS SEASON 4
The first teaser for the fourth season of »Stranger Things« shows Jim Hopper as a prisoner in a Soviet gulag. What we all already suspected and hoped for: the sheriff survived the season 3 final. We are excited to see how the story continues.

DARK WATERS
The drama of a lawyer starting the fight with a corrupt chemical company, based on real events and with Mark Ruffalo in the leading role, has already started in the USA and achieved top ratings (IMDb: 7.6, Rotten Tomatoes: CS 89% / AS 95%) and got the predicate "Particularly valuable"

THE PERSONAL HISTORY OF DAVID COPPERFIELD
Armando Iannucci and Simon Blackwell re-tell the famous Charles Dickens story. Costumes and set design alone are an incredible feast for the eyes.

THE HUNT
Twelve strangers wake up in a clearing. They don’t know where they are, or how they got there. They don't know they’ve been chosen... for a very specific purpose... The Hunt.
Manhunt films are nothing new, but the trailer suggests a few interesting twists. We have become curious.

THE GREEN KNIGHT
A Fantasy film about the legend of Sir Gawain, who - as a knight of the Round Table - dares to duel with the green knight. It's an A24 production, so that alone makes us pay attention.

THE FRENCH DISPATCH
The new film by Wes Anderson. As always, the stars line up for him: Benicio del Toro, Adrien Brody, Tilda Swinton, Frances McDormand, Bill Murray, Owen Wilson... to name just a few. Already the trailer shows Anderson's joy in telling wonderful strange stories. We marked the film in bold on our calendar.

13.02.2020 • SONIC THE HEDGEHOG

Today »Sonic The Hedgehog« is opening in German theaters. In fact, we missed it in our cinema top 5 for February. Maybe that's because of his speed... or perhaps it's because the release date has been pushed back several times. The movie was supposed to be released in December, then there was talk of March and now it's already starting at the movies today.

What Mario is at NINTENDO is definitely the blue hedgehog Sonic at SEGA! SEGA used to be one of the biggest soft- and hardware developers in the world. After losing the game console market to Nintendo and Sony, the Japanese company limited itself to game publishing and still does.

After dozens of parts of the game series and interim TV series, it is now getting its super-fast appearance on the big screen after almost 30 years with the "real film". Dyed-in-the-wool fans will surely enjoy the movie - we are looking forward to your feedback!

11.02.2020 • TRAILER TUESDAY

After all the trailers that were released at the Super Bowl, we weren't blessed with so many new clips this week. That is why we are presenting only one new film and two game trailers on today's Trailer Tuesday.

SPIRAL: FROM THE BOOK OF SAW
Meanwhile the opinions differ on the Saw franchise. We are still a bit sceptical, but the trailer looks good. And maybe Chris Rock and Samuel L. Jackson will lure us to the cinema after all.

HELLPOINT
For all people who love the film »Event Horizon«, »Hellpoint« could be just the right game. The release date is April 16th.

SOMEDAY YOU'LL RETURN
»Someday You'll Return« is a first-person, story-driven psychological horror following the story of a desperate father in search of his missing daughter. When we saw the trailer we got in the mood for this adventure. The game will be released on April 14th.

10.02.2020 • 92ND ACADEMY AWARDS

Well, who of you spent the last night in front of the TV set and watched the Academy Awards live?

The gold boys for the best supporting roles went to Brad Pitt in ONCE UPON A TIME ... IN HOLLYWOOD and to Laura Dern in MARRIAGE STORY. The leading actors awards went to Renée Zellweger in JUDY and Joaquin Phoenix in JOKER. All deservedly won and no surprises, as they were already treated as the big favorites in advance.

The big surprise was PARASITE! The South Korean film was first awarded for the best original screenplay and then received the Oscar for the best international film. We thought two Oscars were a great success! But it should get even better. Bong Joon Ho was awarded for best directing and gave a very sympathetic acceptance speech, in which he especially honored the other nominated directors. As the crowning achievement Parasite was also awarded as the best movie and wrote film history, because never before had a non-English-language film won in the top category. Those who have not yet seen the movie may now find the opportunity in one theater or another - or wait until the beginning of March, when the film of the year is released on DVD and Blu-ray.

Of the films, nominated for several awards, 1917 got three technical Oscars (Camera, sound mixing, visual effects). ONCE UPON A TIME ... IN HOLLYWOOD got a second award for the best production design, JOKER for the best score. FORD V FERRARI won two Oscars. LITTLE WOMEN, BOMBSHELL and JOJO RABBIT each received one Oscar.

The big loser of the evening was Martin Scorsese's THE IRISHMAN. The film was nominated 10 times and unfortunately could not take home a single trophy.

An overview with all winners and nominees can be found here.

06.02.2020 • THE S.P.A.C.E TOP 5 AT THE MOVIES IN FEBRUARY

New month, new movies! We are very curious about the following flicks in February... So, curtains up for our top 5:

Number 5:
FANTASY ISLAND | Theatrical release: 20.02.2020
https://youtu.be/AuDROG1g6bM
The trailer is revealing a bit too much and we are a little torn... but let's hope that »Fantasy Island« will not make our darkest fantasies come true.

Number 4:
COMA | Theatrical release: 06.02.2020
https://youtu.be/ZyfeuyGKFcU
The incredible look of »Coma« reminds us a little of Christopher Nolan's »Inception«. Enough to lure us into the Russian Sci-Fi fantasy adventure.

Number 3:
THE INVISIBLE MAN | Theatrical release: 27.02.2020
https://youtu.be/ZGNWHKprtnY
»The Mummy« was pretty lame and ended Universal's "Dark Universe" dreams. Now they chose a different approach for the Invisible. Thanks to leading actress Elisabeth Moss, that promises to be quite exciting.

Number 2:
THE GENTLEMEN | Theatrical release: 27.02.2020
https://youtu.be/KlXsguV9g0E
Guy Ritchie returns to his cinematic roots. The trailer on »The Gentlemen« gives us hope for a very entertaining new flick by the popular filmmaker.

Number 1:
BIRDS OF PREY: AND THE FANTABULOUS EMANCIPATION OF ONE HARLEY QUINN | Theatrical release: 06.02.2020
https://youtu.be/x3HbbzHK5Mc
We all love Harley Quinn - that's no secret. And even though »Suicide Squad« did not convince us all over, Margot Robbie did nail it in her role for sure. With »Aquaman«, »Shazam!« and »Joker«, DC finally stepped out of the poor form and the Marvel shadow. The first reviews on »Birds of Prey« praised the actors, the setting, the camera work and the fantastic fight-choreographies. We will be able to see that for ourselves from tonight.

The S.P.A.C.E Crew wishes you good times at the movies!

04.02.2020 • PRODUCT OF THE MONTH FEBRUARY 2020

Although our new product of the month isn't really new anymore, it makes us really happy to be able to present you the 1/6 WONDER WOMAN - COMIC CONCEPT VERSION by Hot Toys as our highlight for February 2020!

We had to beg Hot Toys or Sideshow for months to finally get to grab at least some few pieces of this wonderful collectible. The craving and also the long wait paid off though! Hot Toys is definately giving all Wonder Woman and Gal Gadot fans a very special treat with this exclusive special release among the »Justice League« line-up. The popping color scheme in the comic style is really nailed iconically, the details of the costume and the armor are stunning anyways and the head sculpt turned out really great.

Our shipment with about 10 pieces of this great figure will arrive in a few days at the S.P.A.C.E headquarter. So you better don't wait too long of you want to expand your Wonder Woman collection by one more highlight ;)

03.02.2020 • SUPER BOWL LIV

So, who of you has the largest dark circles under the eyes due to boozing all football-night ;)

First of all, congratulations to the Kansas City Chiefs, who made it with a clear 31:20 agains the San Francisco 49ers and took home the NLF title for the second time in their history!

As we all can imagine, the Hard Rock Stadium in Miami was quaking during SUPER BOWL LIV. The legendary halftime show was rocked by two mega hot Power Latinas - Shakira and Jennifer Lopez! Dude... the stage almost burned down!
https://youtu.be/pILCn6VO_RU

Of course, all fans and TV series fans were excited about all the new and mostly exclusive trailers which were shown. We got to see new material of the following titles:
MINIONS - THE RISE OF GRU
007 - NO TIME TO DIE
BLACK WIDOW
MULAN
THE FALCON AND THE WINTER SOLDER / WANDA VISION / LOKI (als MCU/DISNEY+ Compilation Teaser)
TOP GUN - MAVERICK
FAST & FURIOUS 9
THE INVISIBLE MAN
THE SPONGEBOB MOVIE - SPONGE ON THE RUN
SONIC THE HEDGEHOG
A QUIET PLACE 2
HUNTERS

You can find all clips rounded up in one video under this link:
https://youtu.be/Kdgvxmcu0Pk

Almost a cult are also the commercials which are specially made for Super Bowl. Here's a compilation of the 10 best clips:
https://youtu.be/tzEM7fkWqS8
We liked the spots for »Bud Light Seltzer« and »Alexa« the most :)

30.01.2020 • NÜRNBERGER SPIELWARENMESSE 2020

Yesterday our annual trip to the Nuremberg Toy Fair was on the agenda. At 9 o'clock exactly, we passed the entrance of the exhibition halls, and then we walked around until the evening. In a total of 12 halls you make quite a few kilometers. ;)

Even if a large part of the exhibited products doesn't fit into our portfolio, there are still many interesting and new things to see. Besides, it's always nice to talk to manufacturers and to visit our partners. A highlight was the visit at the huge MATTEL booth, where we got to know the Baby Yoda.

As usual, we took a lot of pictures for you. You can find them in our Facebook album.

28.01.2020 • TRAILER TUESDAY

The last week was not exciting in terms of new trailers. The new clips for NEW MUTANTS and THE GENTLEMEN don't reveal much new, so we only mention them in passing by and present only three highlights on this Trailer Tuesday:

THE LAST THING HE WANTED
What makes us listen to this crime drama is especially the cast: Anne Hathaway, Willem Dafoe and Ben Affleck are three good reasons to watch the movie on Netflix from February 21st on.

HORSE GIRL
And another Netflix film. It's great how the trailer's drama keeps increasing. The horse girl has our attention and we have already noted February 7th in the calendar.

VIVARIUM
The trailer for VIVARIUM with Jesse Eisenberg and Imogen Poots already impresses with great set design and fantastic camera work. It looks like an entertaining, crazy story. There is no German release date yet. We hope that the flick will find its way to our cinemas.

27.01.2020 • THE YEAR OF THE RAT

Happy New Year! Yes, of course we know it's almost February... but in Asia, the New Year only started on Saturday. It's under the sign of the rat. Unfortunately, due to the coronavirus problem, the celebrations for the Chinese New Year will be smaller than usual.

Like last year, Disney released Chinese posters of all the films that will be released under the rat, ah... mouse company this year - and there are quite a few: Black Widow, Eternals, New Mutants, Death on the Nile, Onward, Raya and the Last Dragon, Soul, West Side Story, Free Guy, Jungle Cruise, The King's Man and Mulan.

23.01.2020 • THE END OF THE CLONE WARS

Yesterday, starwars.com released the trailer for the final season of »The Clone Wars« - and it's an epic one! Fans of the animated series surely won't get away from permanent goosebumps while watching the trailer. Of course the 7th and last season Clone Wars will exclusively be available on DISNEY's own streaming platform Disney+, launching already on 21st February in the US.

Speaking of "Disney+": the launch date for many European countries (including Germany) was pulled forward by one week! This means that we can start to enjoy »The Mandalorian« and co. from 24th March.

And there's even more to say about "Star Wars series"... another pending project is the highly anticipated show about or with Obi-Wan Kenobi (again play by Ewan McGregor). We just heard the news that also Ben' mentor, the Jedi Master Qui-Gon Jinn (portrayed by Liam Neeson), will probably appear in the series - of course as a Force ghost. That definitely sounds exciting...

21.01.2020 • TRAILER TUESDAY

For today's Trailer Tuesday, we have some mixed expectations from "Was that really necessary?" to "We are eager to see it!"

THE STRANGER
We all have secrets. Based on the novel by Harlan Coben, The Stranger forces us to confront a question we all fear - how well do we really know the people closest to us? The trailer promises an exciting series that invites you to binge watching.

RAGNAROK
A small Norwegian town, climate change and a young hero who must prevent the giants from returning. The trailer for the first Norwegian Netflix series has not quite convinced us yet. At January 31 we're getting smarter.

SPENSER CONFIDENTIAL
When two Boston Police officers are murdered, ex-cop Spenser (Mark Wahlberg) teams up with his no-nonsense roommate, Hawk (Winston Duke), to take down criminals in this action-comedy. Feels like we've seen it all more than once.

BRAHMS: THE BOY II
"The Boy" was a mediocre, but quite successful film at the box office. Clear that the inevitable sequel is following. The trailer looks like a pretty vanilla generic horror story. Nothing that lures us out.

BLOODSHOT
The second trailer for Bloodshot doesn't reveal much new. As fans of the comic we are curious about how Vin Diesel performs as Ray Garrison.

GUNS AKIMBO
Miles (Daniel Radcliffe )nerdy existence changes dramatically when he inadvertently gets caught up by the underground gang SKIZM, which is hosting real-life death matches. He get's "tacked" guns to his hands! Miles excels at running away from everything, but that won’t help him outlast Nix (Samara Weaving), a crazy psychopathic killer, at the top of her game. It looks like a dirty and pretty crazy story. In any case, the trailer looks like fun, except for the faint-hearted!

20.01.2020 • GHIBLI GOES NETFLIX

Good news for all anime fans: Netflix exclusively secured the rights to 21 STUDIO GHIBLI movies, at least outside Japan and North America. So we in Europe will soon have access to most of the artworks of the renowned Japanese animation studio - starting from February 1st already!

In return, Netflix will provide dubbing and subtitling in additional languages. But we're pretty sure that the coup will pay off for both sides. The films from Ghibli are among the most beautiful and lavish anime productions ever and are extremely popular. Currently Ghibli is working on two new movies - until when they will be finished or if they are also part of the deal is not known yet.

Also a small trailer to get into the right mood is provided by Netflix.

16.01.2020 • THE S.P.A.C.E TOP 5 AT THE MOVIES IN JANUARY

Even if a little late, you will of course also get delivered our monthly Top 5 cinema highlights in 2020. The following films are at the top of our watchlist.

Number 5:
UNDERWATER | Theatrical release: 09.01.2020
Maybe »Underwater« with Kristen Stewart in the leading role is not the biggest hit. But the sci-fi setting of the underwater story appealed to us.

Number 4:
BAD BOYS FOR LIFE | Theatrical release: 16.01.2020
If it's pure nostalgia that drives us to the cinema? We're just looking forward to see Will Smith and Martin Lawrence again.

Number 3:
KNIVES OUT | Theatrical release: 02.01.2020
Oscar nominated for best original screenplay and packed with stars - this promises exciting guessing in the entertaining Whodunit detective story.

Number 2:
1917 | Theatrical release: 16.01.2020
The film has already won two Golden Globes and it's nominated for 10 Oscars. A war movie, shot in real time, in a single shot. This amazing logistical achievement alone is certainly a reason to watch the film at the movies.

Number 1️:
JOJO RABBIT | Theatrical release: 23.01.2020
Since »What we do in the Shadows«, Taika Waititi earns a top spot as a filmmaker on our faves list. The trailer of Jojo Rabbit was already impressive. It is unbelievable how easily and at the same time with what truthfulness such a dark chapter in history is told here.

The S.P.A.C.E Crew wishes you good times at the movies!

14.01.2020 • TRAILER TUESDAY

After many holidays and vacations and an understaffed bridge on our S.P.A.C.E Ship we now resume our familiar news program. Today we have our first Trailer Tuesday in 2020 on the schedule for you. We already honored the new trailer of BIRDS OF PREY. Here are eight more trailers that made us hot for the associated series and films:

NARCOS: MEXICO SEASON 2
This is only a small teaser with a bloody promise. So far, the S.P.A.C.E Crew hasn't followed the series yet. After the teaser, however, it climbed further up on our watchlist. The 2nd season starts on February 13th on Netflix.

LOCKE & KEY
A mystery horror coming-of-age story based on the comic of the same name by Joe Hill. The trailer made us curious. Maybe that's the next big Netflix thing. We will find out on February 7th.

HUNTERS
A series with Al Pacino in the role as a Nazi hunter and Jordan Peele as an executive producer in the background? Count us in! The new trailer looks promising. Starting on Prime Video on February 21st.

THE WOMAN IN THE WINDOW
The trailer for the mystery thriller with Amy Adams reminded us of COLUMBUS CYRCLE in terms of the initial situation, but then the film takes a different direction. It could be an exciting and multifaceted story.

A QUIET PLACE 2
A Quiet Place was extremely exciting and became a hit. A sequel was of course preprogrammed. John Krasinski sat on the director's chair again. Even if we are a bit hesitant about sequels, the trailer gives hope for an exciting continuation.

THE NEW MUTANTS
Marvel meets horror. After a long back and forth, a cinema release date has finally been set for the new mutants: April 16th.

MORBIUS
Jared Leto changes fronts and gets his first role as Dr. Michael Morbius in a MARVEL blockbuster. The trailer is - according to the topic - not only quite dark and gives hope for an R rating, it also contains some cross references to the MCU! So Morbius should be a quite high up on the list of all Marvel fans...

BLACK WIDOW
Marvel, the third and still dewy: the second trailer of Black Widow, released a few hours ago. We have nothing else to say. Of course, visiting the theaters is a mandatory event here.

13.01.2020 • 4 WEEKS UNTIL THE SHOWDOWN

The nominations for the 92nd Oscars have just been announced. We can already see how we’re going to blow the night of the award (February 9th), because that promises to be extremely exciting - after all, some high-caliber performers with good chances are competing against each other. If it only depends on the number of nominations, we already have a winner: »JOKER« was nominated 11 times, including as best film, Joaquin Phoenix for the best male lead, Todd Phillips for directing and best adapted screenplay. Competing with Joker for a gold boy for the best film: »THE IRISHMAN«, »ONCE UPON A TIME IN HOLLYWOOD« and »1917« (10 nominations each), as well as »JOJO RABBIT«, »LITTLE WOMEN« and »MARRIAGE STORY« (6 nominations), the South Korean movie »PARASITE« (5 nominations) and »FORD V FERRARI« (4 nominations).

You can find all nominees here.

10.01.2020 • I NAMED HIM BRUCE...

Four weeks before »Birds of Prey: And the Fantabulous Emancipation of One Harley Quinn« will hit theaters, Warner Bros. presents us another sick trailer! We get to see the full psycho attitude of Harley Quinn, plus Black Mask (Ewan McGregor) finally with black mask!

This will be the first really big highlight in the cinema year 2020 and we are really looking forward to Margot Robbie and Co.!

09.01.2020 • 12 DAYS OF SIDESHOW

The top dog SIDESHOW COLLECTIBLES has always used the Christmas holidays in recent years for the so-called »12 Days of Sideshow«. During this 12-day online event, the manufacturer unveils a new product, a new license or any other super hot announcement every day. A post-Christmas half Advent calendar with collectible news so to say ;)

Of the 12 announcements, the new Harley Quinn Premium Format Figure is the most appealing, closely followed by the PF Royal Guard (imagine two of them standing next to the Emperor on Throne...) and the yet unrecognizable Captain Marvel statue. Furthermore, it might be interesting to note that Sideshow is now also one of the licensees of »The Witcher III«.

07.01.2020 • GOLDEN GLOBE AWARDS 2020

On Sunday, the 77th GOLDEN GLOBE AWARDS were presented in Los Angeles. The trophy is the most important harbinger of the Oscars, which will be awarded on February 10th. Winner of the evening was the World War film »1917« - it was honoured as best film drama, as well as Sam Mendes for best director. On the other hand, »Once Upon a Time in Hollywood« won three awards - best comedy, best screenplay (Quentin Tarantino) and Brad Pitt as best supporting actor.

Joaquin Phoenix deservedly received the award for best actor in a film drama for his performance as Joker - »Joker« was also honored for the best score. »The Irishman« was surprisingly left completely blank. The big winners among the series were »Chernobyl«, »Succession« and »Fleabag«.

Here you can find a complete overview of all Golden Globe winners.

02.01.2020 • PRODUCT OF THE MONTH JANUARY 2020

Of course we're kicking off the new year with a new product of the month - and it's a creepy one this time... The JASON VOORHEES Deluxe Art Scale Statue in 1:10 scale by the Brasilian manufacturer »Iron Studios« really impressed us a lot and rightly so became our highlight in January!

The South-Americans are meanwhile holding a large range of licenses and are delivering really great collectibles. After pointing out the classy Superman last year, one of the most iconic slashers is following up now.

Besides the deluxe version, which contains a way more complex base aswell as a second, exchangeable head and an additional, interchangeable left arm with the head of a victim, there is also a regular variant of Jason. Here you will get a more simple base, the normal arm (without the cut-off head in his hand) and Jason's head with the hockey mask in front of his ugly face. Both versions are currently still in stock and ready to ship from our warehouse.
 

01.01.2020 • A HAPPY NEW YEAR!

Happy New Year, dear S.P.A.C.E Army!
We are extremely looking forward to a new year - no, a new decade - with the best customers of the world.

2020 will surely be an exciting year in which we will be able to implement again many ideas and projects and finalize "constructions in the making“ aswell.

We wish you all a happy, peaceful and especially healthy year!
Your S.P.A.C.E Crew

19.12.2019 • BY THE POWER OF... CHRISTMAS!

Dear MOTU fans and collectors, although it is not a (MOTU) Monday today, we want to take this opportunity and supply you with our breaking news of today: we just got overflown with a huge new batch of figures from Eternia ;)

If you follow us on Instagram, you might already have seen it - the 4 figures of the »William Stout« Collection as well as all 6 Filmation figures of »Club Grayskull« Wave 4 have arrived at the S.P.A.C.E headquarter! Of course we have to check and count everything before we can book in the arrival to our system.

All pre-ordering customers will be notified bit by bit - BUT, please be patient regarding your shipment: most of our crew will be off for the Christmas Holidays next week, which means that the main part of the packages will go on their journeys to you in the new year probably. Also count in all the weekends and holidays in between - the world will be spinning surely slower than usual during these days. Thanks!

Oh, and to mark the occasion, NETFLIX just released these hot news: they confirmed another animated series, some sort of reboot of the classic »He-Man and the Masters of the Universe« cartoon TV show,  CG-animated with modern technique. The guys behind the projects are Christopher Keenan and Rob David, who for example have been responsible for stuff like »Justice League« and »Batman Beyond« or »Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles«. Doesn't that sound good :)

18.12.2019 • THE RISE OF SKYWALKER

Long have we waited, untill the final word in the story of Skywalker will be told... untill the final battle begins!

The journey nears its end, and we will be taking one last look at our friends. They've passed on all they know. A thousand generations live in us now.

The Force brought us together. We were all in this, ‘til the end.

The Saga will end, but the story lives forever...

The Force will be with us. Always.

17.12.2019 • TRAILER TUESDAY

There has been a lot of new trailer material to watch in the last week. Here is a choice of eight clips, which we think are definitely worth watching.

DOLITTLE
The second trailer for the adventure with Robert Downey Jr. comes in the form of a casting video with the animal (CGI) actors who play famous movie scenes in the casting. Funny and pretty smart.

THE AERONAUTS
The Victorian balloonist adventure with Felicity Jones and Eddie Redmayne looks amazing. Starting on December 20th on Amazon Prime.

ANTLERS
There is no German release date for the horror film »Antlers«. The dark trailer looks very atmospheric, and Guillermo del Toro as a producer had a finger in the pie.

PROMISING YOUNG WOMAN
For us, the trailer came out of nowhere and made us curious about this revenge story. That could be a good movie.

THE WITCHER
The final trailer is here. On Friday, the long awaited fantasy series will finally start on Netflix. We are really looking forward to it and ask ourselves who is going to grab licenses for collectibles.

BIRDS OF PREY

The Game Awards were presented in LA almost a week ago. Everybody's darling Harley Quinn alias Margot Robbie presented a new 30-second to »Birds of Prey«.

FINAL FANTASY VII REMAKE
And talking about the Game Awards: the event also featured a couple of new game trailers, such as the latest addition in the »Final Fantasy« saga.

RESIDENT EVIL 3 REMAKE
A highlight in the gaming world was definitely the announcement trailer for the »Resident Evil 3« remake.

12.12.2019 • THE ART OF WONDERBUNK - CALENDAR 2020

May the new year come - because finally, our neighbourhood print shop delivered us our brand-new calendar 2020!

The great piece is called »THE ART OF WONDERBUNK« and as you can imagine, that's because it is a collaboration project of us and the exceptionally gifted Patrick, whom many of you might know under his artist name @wonderbunk from Instagram or Facebook.

Patrick not only lost his heart (and sometimes wallet) for collectibles, he also discovered his passion and obvious talent of the toy photography a couple of years ago. We were able to bring many ideas to life together with Patrick during this year and we're now extremely glad to present you for year-end rally the highlight of our creative relationship - this very fine and noble, and strictly limited to 250 pieces annual calendar!

You can check out this video on our YouTube channel to learn more about the project, listen to some anecdotes and of course get a glimpse of the inside. And if you would like to own one copy of the calendar, then watch out for many upcoming contests/raffles by us and many of our partners.

We want to give out a huge thanks to Patrick aka wonderbunk for the collaboration and the incredibly creative input in 2019! This was amazing ;-)

11.12.2019 • TOY SAPIENS

Japan has a new tourist attraction - at least for all fans of high quality collectibles.

Hot Toys announced on Facebook the "Grand Opening of Toy Sapiens Nagoya - the Official Hot Toys Retail Store in Japan". For the opening there were visits of various superheroes (basically their cosplay versions). So if you visit Nagoya one day... Such a Hot Toys Shop would be a good idea for Europe as well, right?

You can find all pictures from the opening in the appropriate Facebook photo album.

10.12.2019 • TRAILER TUESDAY

In the last few days, we were spoilt with a lot of blockbuster trailers. BLACK WIDOW and WONDER WOMAN 1984, the new BOND and the first preview of GHOSTBUSTERS AFTERLIFE tickled our optic nerves. Here are a few more, worth watching new trailers:


THE BOYS SEASON 2
There is a teaser of »The Boys«, which does not reveal much, but shows that it continues to be cynical, rapid and bloody, to make it short - with everything that we love about »The Boys«.

MULAN
The trailer of the real-life adaptation of Disney's »Mulan« is - above all - one thing: a feast for the eyes. We are very curious.

FREE GUY
What could be a real blast is »Free Guy«. Ryan Reynolds plays a nameless banker who realizes that he is a non-player character in an online open-world shooter. The clip starts right away with a sarcastic swipe at Disney and is peppered with lots of funny eastereggs. We are really excited about this movie.

09.12.2019 • GHOSTBUSTERS AFTERLIFE

The first trailer of GHOSTBUSTERS AFTERLIFE is here and the creators keep us very very curious, because we only get to know the descendants of Egon Spengler so far.

In an inherited farmhouse, the kids find a few items that are well known to all Ghostbusters fans. Also the »Ecto-1« gets turned on again after 30 years. The big appearance of the Ghostbusters was still missing in this trailer, but the whole set design does look very atmospheric and full of details. That's definately what we call “to build up tension”. So we eagerly are waiting for the next piece of the puzzle and look forward to August 2020!
 

05.12.2019 • THE S.P.A.C.E TOP 5 AT THE MOVIES IN DECEMBER

In December, of course, everything revolves around STAR WARS and the end of the Skywalker saga. And at S.P.A.C.E headquarters, the anticipation is growing every day. Nonetheless, December has a few more highlights to offer.

And here is our Top 5:

Number 5:
JUMANJI: THE NEXT LEVEL | release date: 12.12.2019
Jumanji 2 promises to become a nice and entertaining piece of popcorn cinema. We're looking forward to it.

Number 4:
7500 | release date: 26.12.2019
Even the trailer for this thriller with Joseph Gordon-Levitt is already very exciting. We hope the movie keeps the preview's promises.

Number 3:
MOTHERLESS BROOKLYN | release date: 12.12.2019
Edward Norton is always a reason visit the movies. Here, he not only plays the main role, but also took over the direction. The story of a detective with Tourette's syndrome in the New York of the 50s had us on the hook after a few seconds of the trailer. That could be a great movie!

Number 2:
THE PEANUT BUTTER FALCON | release date: 19.12.2019
Zak (Zack Gottsagen), a young man with Down syndrome, escapes from his care home to become a professional wrestler. On the way he meets a petty criminal (Shia LaBeouf), who becomes his friend and coach. A feelgood movie about friendship and dreams. Great actors and beautifully photographed!

Number 1:
STAR WARS: EPISODE IX - THE RISE OF SKYWALKER | release date: 18.12.2019
We probably do not have much to say about our first place. Trailer and clips to the film have already given us some goosebumps moments. The cinema visit is both - a must-attend and a matter of the heart for us.

The S.P.A.C.E Crew wishes you good times at the movies! And may the force be with you.

04.12.2019 • NO TIME TO DIE

On Monday, it was already teasered, now it's here: the first trailer of the 25th part of the JAMES BOND series - »No Time To Die«. And it looks pretty damn good! It will be the last movie in which the legendary Agent 007 is played by Daniel Craig. The new Bond will be released in April 2020.

The trailer already gives a glimpse of two absolutely fantastic actors. And Daniel Craig ;) No, fun aside. Rami Malek as the villain comes across really well in the first few seconds he's on screen. Besides that, Christoph Waltz is back as Blofeld - even if only in a supporting role, but with a nasty look!

Five years after »Spectre« we're really in the mood for the sequel.

03.12.2019 • IT'S OVER!

Hello, dear bargain community! Phew... the CyberSpaceWeekend 2019 is over - at least for you. For us, the hustle and bustle is just starting now. :)

First of all we would like to thank you - the best customers in the world - for your diligent struck in our SALE! Our server was really glowing ;) Now, of course, we are putting the pedal to the metal so that you will receive your orders as quickly as possible. Please have a little patience and give us a few days until we're finished shipping the items. Because, as we said, you have been diligent and there is really a lot to do here. :)

02.12.2019 • PRODUCT OF THE MONTH DECEMBER 2019

With »Court Of The Dead«, Sideshow Collectibles created an unique original concept of morbid fascination and sensuality. In addition to the main line in the Premium Format they also released busts and smaller PVC statues. What could be more obvious than to expand into the field of 1/6 scale collectible figures with the popular concept?

This is where TBLeague (formerly Phicen) comes into play. Since the introduction of the seamless body with steel skeleton, the Asian manufacturer is top notch when it comes to realistic bodies. Especially when they are scantily clad, the seamless body pays off - no ugly joints are disturbing the look and the body is still very flexible. Also, TBLeague has a good standing for some time when it comes to sexy fantasy characters. In short, this is just the right partner to transfer the »Court Of The Dead« theme into the 1 to 6 world.

One of the most popular characters of Sideshow's »Court Of The Dead« universe is KIER. She's the adopted daughter and also the sword of Death and she's about to conquer your collection.

We can well imagine that the unique cooperation between the two manufacturers will not stop there and that more creatures of the underworld will follow. Since Kier makes a great start of the COTD franchise in the 1/6 category, in our opinion, we decided to nominate her to our Product of the Month December 2019!

29.11.2019 • CYBERSPACEWEEKEND 2019

The CyberSpaceWeekend 2019 has just started!

We are still putting more stuff into the SALE right now. About 500 items will be reduced by afternoon. So it's definitely worth having a look and grab some great deals! Of course, only as long as stock lasts ;)

Happy Deal Hunting!

27.11.2019 • THE MOVIES THAT MADE US

According to the same pattern, the team of »The Toys That Made Us« took on for movies that shaped our lives. This friday, »The Movies That Made Us« will start on Netflix.

The first season deals with »Home Alone«, »Dirty Dancing«, »Die Hard« and probably the biggest highlight of the season: »Ghostbusters«. Again, participants and fans of the films speak about the movies, there is background information, but of course also a lot of anecdotes about the genesis stories and nostalgic memories of the cinema experience. Even though not all of these films have influenced the S.P.A.C.E crew, it will be entertaining by all means.

>> trailer

26.11.2019 • TRAILER TUESDAY

On today's Trailer Tuesday we have again a wild bunch from A like ArtHouse to Z like Zombies.

JUMANJI: THE NEXT LEVEL
The predecessor was a hit. Of course, a sequel was inevitable. So also in the next level we expect some good and funny entertainment with »The Rock« and co.

THE CALL OF THE WILD
This is actually the 9th adaptation of the Jack London novel. The nature shots and a weather-beaten Harrison Ford look good. The dog Buck seems to be at home in the Uncanny Valley.

THE IRISHMAN
Celebrated as one of the best films of the year. From tomorrow we can all convince ourselves on Netflix, if Martin Scorsese has really created an Oscar-worthy masterpiece.

SUPERVIZED
Superheroes in the retirement home. That sounds quite funny at first, but it's only when you can laugh about fart jokes.

BLACK CHRISTMAS
This is already the second remake of the 1974 Bob Clark classic. This time from Blumhouse with a PG-13 rating. Maybe not bad, but we're expecting the typical Teenage Jump Scare Horror.

COUNTDOWN
An app tells you how much longer you have to live. Again, a PG-13 rating and a story that seems somehow generic. Let's wait and see if the movie may surprise us positively.

YUMMY
The Belgian production about zombies in the beauty clinic promises an orgy of blood, violence and fun. Unfortunately, there is still no information about a German theatrical release. The trailer had our full attention though.

HUNTERS
The trailer for the Prime V series with Al Pacino on Nazi hunt also makes quite a promising impression as one of the producers here is Jordan Peele. The series starts in 2020 - there is no exact date yet.

25.11.2019 • HAPPY MOTU MONDAY!

Los Amos, William Stout, Club Grayskull Wave 4, 1/6 Faker and of course Snake Mountain are the topics of today's MASTERS OF THE UNIVERSE newsletter. By the power of Grayskull...!

21.11.2019 • WE'RE ALL IN THIS. TIL THE END.

In a month's time, we'll probably all be sitting at the movies, extremely tense, with our fingernails half gnawed off... because then it's time for the RISE OF SKYWALKER!

About four weeks before the start, Disney respectively Lucasfilm released a brand new "Dolby Cinema" Exclusive poster with about five thousand Star Destroyers - and Poe Dameron in his X-Wing. We think the theme is really cool!

Furthermore, there are 13 (!) character posters, from Rey to Kylo up to D-0, which need getting used to, when it comes to the design.

Most of the anticipation of all STAR WARS fans is probably fuelled by the short TV commercials that are released once a week. In the clip "End" we even get to see some completely new scenes - even if only for fractions of a second. Oh dear, the remaining four weeks of waiting for EPISODE IX will seem like an eternity to us... :o)

19.11.2019 • TRAILER TUESDAY

Today's TRAILER TUESDAY does not really know how to show off... We arranged 4 trailers of new movies worth seeing though.

SONIC THE HEDGEHOG
Despite Sonic's new look, we don't think the trailer is very appealing, to be honest. We assume that the movie will probably join the long list of failed game adaptations, unfortunately.

THE SPONGEBOB MOVIE: SPONGE ON THE RUN
Spongebob is cult! We love the wacky humor of the series, but we wouldn't have needed the movie in 3D and on the bis screen.

6 UNDERGROUND
What initially looks like a tourism advertising spot, turns out to be another preview of »6 Underground«, the Netflix movie with Ryan Reynolds in the lead role. Could this be something good or is it just another example of a soulless Michael Bay racket movie? Let's see.

KNIVES OUT
This classic "whodunit" crime comedy, directed by Rian Johnson, is already intriguing by its top cast: Christopher Plummer, Daniel Craig, Chris Evans, Jamie Lee Curtis, Don Johnson, Toni Collette... That could be exciting.

18.11.2019 • BLACK "THE ROCK" ADAM

Dwayne Johnson, or better known as »The Rock«, is one of the hottest stars when it comes to Hollywood blockbuster. It was only a matter of time before he finally got to play a superhero. The now gave the answer himself - via Instagram, Johnson announced that he would be playing DC's »Black Adam«.

For the announcement, there was a first poster and the start date of the film, on which the fans have to wait until December 22, 2021.

15.11.2019 • MEMORIES...

Today, the third season of »The Toys That Made Us« starts on NETFLIX. If you do not know the show yet, you should definitely watch the first two seasons. Season 1 was about Star Wars, Barbie, He-Man and G.I. Joe, then Season 2 about Star Trek, Transformers, Lego and Hello Kitty.

Episode 9 is now dedicated to the »Power Rangers« and their story. Those who grew up in the 80s may have also played with wrestling figures back then. So for all wannabe wrestlers, episode 10 is a must. After this "boys theme", episode 11 has then something for the girls with "My Little Pony". Although all episodes promise good entertainment and insights into the world of toy makers, episode 12 is certainly the highlight of the season, because then it's all about the »Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles«. Cowabunga!

13.11.2019 • AUF DEN TELLER - THE LAUNCH

One of our resolutions or project plans from the beginning of the year 2019 was the expansion of our YouTube channel. With nearly 700 subscribers and unfortunately far too few content in the past years, our aim is now to use this platform much better and to offer all collectors an added value.

That's why - from now on - we will put various tidbits AUF DEN TELLER! That basically means "onto the plate" - a S.P.A.C.E cooking show or what?! No ;)

In this new format, which can be found in an own playlist on our YouTube channel, you will get served chosen collectibles in short and firm turntable videos by us, once or twice a week. We thought that you can just judge or admire a figure better in a 360 degrees view with appropriate detail shots, compared to only flat product images.

Those of you who follow us on Facebook or Instagram, will already have caught that we upgraded our technical equipment (i.a. a turntable) and we finally built up a real studio. The possibilities and our ideas are almost unlimited - as well as the flood of collectibles ;)

So, today we are celebratorily launching AUF DEN TELLER and we kindly invite you to tune in! If you enjoy it, just subscribe to our channel and turn on the notifications, so you'll never miss out when there's something new "on the plate". Wishes and suggestions are cordially welcome, of course! :)

12.11.2019 • TRAILER TUESDAY

It's Tuesday - time for a new issue of our TRAILER TUESDAY :-)
These four trailers aroused our interest in the past days:

BAD BOYS FOR LIFE
Will the third »Bad Boys« movie be the action highlight of next year or will the bad boys ultimately fail, as many reanimation attempt on previously successful film series have? The second trailer couldn't ignite with us yet, to be honest. But maybe the movie will surprise us positively.

FANTASY ISLAND
A secluded tropical resort where all dreams come true... unfortunately, the nightmares too! The trailer of »Fantasy Island« looks like a pretty exciting horror-mystery story.

THE INVISIBLE MAN
After the flop of the mummy, Universal has buried the Dark Universe to the grave. However, »The Invisible Man« is coming - but in a completely new form, as a sociopathic stalker, whereat the film is concentrating entirely on the victim's perspective. It's played by the wonderful Elisabeth Moss (The Handmaid's Tale). Refreshing!

SOUL
Pixar's latest animated movie »Soul« is about Jazz music, but even more it's about the essential questions of life like "Why am I here?", "What am I meant to be doing...?" and especially "What does it truly mean to have soul?". The movie probably targets more versus mature audience and it could become a highlight of next summer.

11.11.2019 • GHOSTBUSTERS 2020

The vocabulary "cult movie" is used quite inflationary in our days. Often you shake your head about what's supposed to be "cult". On one franchise the designation fits completely though: GHOSTBUSTERS.

For all fans of the ghosthunters, there is now great news: Dan Aykroyd (better known as »Ray Stantz« here) revealed on the radio show "The Greg Hill Show" that, next to him, Bill Murray, Sigourney Weaver, Ernie Hudson and Annie Potts will be back in »Ghostbusters 2020«. Ivan Reitman, director of the first two films, will produce this time while his son Jason will sit on the director's chair. Aykroyd was full of praise for the screenplay by Jason Reitman and Gil Kenan. That makes us all very optimistic and let us forget the 2016 Ghostbusters debacle.

Of course, there are also new faces, including Finn Wolfhard (Stranger Things), Mckenna Grace (Annabelle 3) as well as Carrie Coon (Fargo) and Paul Rudd (Ant-Man).

Speaking of Paul Rudd - meanwhile, it has been confirmed that the »Ant-Man« series also will get a third part, again under the direction of Peyton Reed. Yesss :-)

07.11.2019 • THE S.P.A.C.E TOP 5 AT THE MOVIES IN NOVEMBER

THE S.P.A.C.E TOP 5 AT THE MOVIES IN NOVEMBER

The days are getting shorter and colder. This is the best time to retire to a cozy, warm movie theater, watch a good movie and bring some color into the grey of November.

And here is our top 5 of this month:

Number 5:
FROZEN II | release date: 20.11.2019
The second part of »Frozen« fits excellently into the season. And somehow we prefer the Disney animated films, because Disney's live-action movies couldn't often convince us.

Number 4:
THE LIGHTHOUSE | release date: 28. 11.2019
Robert Eggers made a big impression with »The Witch«. We are looking forward to his new movie. A bit bulky maybe, but if you like arthouse horror, this is the place for you.

Number 3:
THE IRISHMAN | release date: 27.11.2019
Robert De Niro, Al Pacino and Joe Pesci in a mafia movie by Martin Scorsese. Do we have to say more? Only short at the movies and from November 27th available on Netflix.

Number 2:
ZOMBIELAND: DOUBLE TAP | release date: 07.11.2019
»Zombieland 2« is our popcorn movie of the month. Maybe it does not have the freshness of the first part, but we'll certainly have fun :)

Number 1️:
DOCTOR SLEEP | release date: 21.11.2019
A sequel to one of the best horror movies ever? Well, we do not want to hang our expectations too high. Certainly the movie will not catch up »Shining«, but Mike Flanagan has proven in the past that he has a good hand for horror - beyond the overused jump-scares dreariness of many modern horror movies.

The S.P.A.C.E Crew wishes you good times at the movies!

05.11.2019 • TRAILER TUESDAY

For today's trailer Tuesday, there was really a colorful mix:

JUMANJI: THE NEXT LEVEL
Let's start in blockbuster cinema. The first part really surprised us two years ago. We are looking forward to the new adventures in the games world of Jumanji.

STAR WARS JEDI: FALLEN ORDER
Speaking of games - from the 15th of November we can all gamble again and train our Jedi forces, because then »Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order« starts. The launch trailer, which was released last week, looks promising.

DIABLO 4
After more than 6 years, all Diablo fans were finally rewarded for the long wait. At the Blizzcon 2019 there was an extra long cinematic trailer for the eagerly awaited "Diablo 4". Really cinematic!

DRACULA
When Sherlock creators Steven Moffat and Mark Gatiss adapt Bram Stoker's »Dracula« in a mini-series, we have some good expectations, especially as Gatiss is a self-confessed horror fan and Moffat has also shown what he can do as a Doctor Who writer.

THE WAR OF THE WORLDS
Let's stay with classics and BBC mini series. We are talking about H.G. Wells »The War of the Worlds« (not to be confused with the Fox series, which starts on November 6th on Sky). The trailer looks awesome, especially the historical setting.

THE END OF THE F***ING WORLD
We celebrated the first season of »The End of the F *** ing World«. The atmospheric Trailer for season 2 reveals nothing, but makes us very curious. The Netflix series will already start tomorrow.

THE WITCHER
Of course, we are extremely curious about »The Witcher« and we wonder if the Netflix series will be able to reduce our »Game of Thrones« withdrawal symptoms. Streaming start will be December 20th.

04.11.2019 • FOR THE HONOR OF GRAYSKULL!

It seems as if MATTEL and NETFLIX do have the expected success with »She-Ra and the Princesses of Power« - which makes us MOTU fans happy, of course!

Exactly one year ago, we postet a trailer of the first season - 12 months later, already the fourth season of the animation series starts on Netflix. So who wants to beam himself back to Etheria, will - thanks to Netflix - be able to do so by tomorrow.

And for those of you who can't resist the matching collectible, we still have the »She-Ra & Catra - Battle for Etheria 2-Pack« by SUPER7 in stock ;-)

01.11.2019 • PRODUCT OF THE MONTH NOVEMBER 2019

A young and very talented artist is making her debut for our product of the month November 2019 - but not as an illustrator for a comic book cover, but as an artwork provider of an own illustration for a statue-conversion. We are talking about DC's in house »DC Collectibles Designer Series« and the comic cover artist Jenny Frison - and the resulting WONDER WOMAN by Jenny Frison Statue which was just released by DC Collectibles.

The resin statue is about 39cm high including the base, is limited to 5,000 pieces worldwide and was brought to life in close collaboration with Jenny Frison by sculptor Jack Mathews. It is based on a »Wonder Woman Rebirth« cover and we think that it's an outstanding piece among the extensive DC Designer Series...

30.10.2019 • GOT PREQUEL IS GOING CONCRETE

Our television landscape is extremely changing at the moment. Of course, everyone sends his best horse into the race for the streaming market. At Disney +, these are, for example, the Marvel and Star Wars series. It's only logical that the HBO streaming service »HBO Max« bets on GAME OF THRONES.

Fans of the fantasy epic now had good news and bad news. The planned series »The Long Night« is canceled, although there was already produced a pilot episode with Naomie Watts In the lead role. There will now be a series, called »House of the Dragon« instead.

We don't know much yet - in any case, it will be a Targaryen story. The civil war story »Dance of the Dragons« could be possible here. But since it was said that the series plays three hundred years before »Game of Thrones«, it is more likely that the subject will be the conquest of Westeros with the beginning of the landing of Aegon the Conqueror.

We are curious... In this sense: Valar morghulis!

29.10.2019 • NEW: TRAILER TUESDAY

Especially in the last few years, trailers of movies, video games and TV series are getting more and more considerable. Primarily because of the streaming platforms like Netflix, Prime Video and co., you are almost not able to keep the overview over the mass of new films and series. So the studios attach more importance to attractive, yes partially epic trailers as appetizers to their works. Extremely dynamical cuts, combined with striking scores or catchy songs, often ignite a huge hype upfront. Trailers are supposed to do - above all - one thing: make us curious. And good ones are just being fun and tempt to flicking through.

So this is why we are starting our TRAILER TUESDAY! We will give us and you an overview of the newest and most interesting trailers of the past days. Whether it's of films, series or also games - everything that arouses our interest and brings our geek blood aboil, makes it to our summary. There will absolutely be on or another view beyond the horizon - as well as critical evaluations on our end.

And these are the trailers on our first Trailer Tuesday:

BLOODSHOT
Even though not everyone is a Vin Diesel fan here at S.P.A.C.E, we have to say that the trailer for the comic adaptation Bloodshot looks pretty damn cool. He teases a few exciting sci-fi topics like the question of reality. We hung on the hook quickly - although, a big part of the story is already revealed...

MORTEL
»Mortel« is a dark superhero series, reminiscent of the genre hit »Chronicle«. The French Netflix series takes place in the social hotspots of French suburbs. Let's see what the series dares to do. It starts on November 21st this year.

THE KING
The story of Henry the Fifth has been told many times. This elaborate Netflix production with Timothée Chalamet, Robert Pattinson and Joel Edgerton seems to be worth a visit - to be seen in selected theaters and starting November 1st on Netflix.
Last but not least a drama:

QUEEN & SLIM
A simple date becomes a stirring hunt for justice. »Get Out« star Daniel Kaluuya and Jodie Turner-Smith play the lead roles in the 'Fleeing' drama »Queen & Slim« by director Melina Matsoukas and screenwriter Lena Waithe. That really looks promising.

28.10.2019 • REBOOT OF THE CARIBBEAN

Pirates of the Caribbean was great fun. A theme park attraction turned into a successful franchise, Johnny Depp into a superstar, and the staggering Captain Jack Sparrow into a cinema icon.

Although »Salazar's revenge« fell far short of expectations, almost ran aground, Disney will not scrape the Black Pearl. As long as the next caper trip still promises money, it's off to the shrouds.

Now Disney brought Craig Mazin on board. The author of the successful HBO series Chernobyl is to make the slightly beaten barge afloat again. Whether with or Johnny Depp as Sparrow is not yet known.

Drink up me 'earties, yo ho. Are you in?

24.10.2019 • CHOOSE YOUR FATE

Today, »Terminator: Dark Fate« launches in German theaters!

Terminator and Terminator 2 are undisputed masterpieces and great classics of sci-fi action cinema. What came after that was okay at best. Part 5 of the series did almost hurt though... But that had a good thing: the expectations for part 6 were not very high and it could only get better.

»Dark Fate« now ignores parts 3-5 and connects to »Judgment Day«. It was directed by Tim Miller (Deadpool), James Cameron also produced and knit on the script, Arnold Schwarzenegger is on board as an aged T-800 and Linda Hamilton returns as "Bad Ass" Sarah Connor.

Many critics speak of the best terminator since »Terminator 2«, though that's a bit of a misnomer, because it isn't hard to be better than the rest of the series. So »Dark Fate« does not seem to be a masterpiece, but promises quite passable entertainment. A visit to the cinema is obligatory for us anyway thanks to the first two Terminator milestones.

22.10.2019 • TAKING ONE LAST LOOK, SIR... AT MY FRIENDS!

This is exactly what we're all going to do, when the Force will cast a spell over us in December - at the movies... when the SKYWALKER SAGA will end.

After we STAR WARS fans have been on pins and needles since »Force Friday« and we were hoping in vain to see the trailer, a couple of hours ago DISNEY and LUCASFILM now brought us the final trailer on EPISODE IX - THE RISE OF SKYWALKER.

As expected, the stunning visuals are smashing, the impressions are almost overstraining eyes and brain and the probably most epic Star Wars trailer score ever composed by the legendary John Williams is burning into our ears and underneath our skin.

Along with the trailer there's also the main poster in the classic style - AND you are able to buy tickets from today in the pre-sale at the movie theatre of your choice.

The story lives forever. May the Force be with you!

21.10.2019 • DETAILS ON THE NEW BATMAN

»The Batman« is scheduled to hit US cinemas on June 25th 2021 and already has a rich history of ups and downs. First, Ben Affleck should slip back into the bat suit and also take the directors chair. Then he threw down after a few quarrels - first the directing job and then the main role. The staff carousel continued to turn. The announcement that Robert Pattinson (»Twilight«) will assume the role of Batman caused divided response. Meanwhile »Planet of the Apes« director Matt Reeves has been committed as the new director and promises us a grim Detective Noir Story.

Now, even more roles were confirmed. Character actor Jeffrey Wright (»Westworld«) will take over the role of Commissioner Gordon. Paul Dano (»There Will Be Blood«) is set to play the Riddler, while the enchanting Zoë Kravitz (»Big Little Lies«) will embody Selina Kyle aka Catwoman. All of these are actors that we can well imagine in the roles.

17.10.2019 • PUT ON A GROUCHY FACE

As expected, the "Joker" hit like a bombshell. Now NBC's "Saturday Night Live" parodies the movie with a trailer by transposing the story of the Joker into Sesame Street. Ernie and Bert get robbed, Big Bird works as a dancer in a greasy show, Elmo is arrested as a crack dealer... and the Joker (embodied by David Harbour) becomes a well-known figure in a Sesame Street live action drama in this Origin story. We can't stop laughing! :D

16.10.2019 • ARGENTO IS BACK

Dario Argento is one of the giants of Italian genre cinema. When Giallo became popular in the early 1970s, Argento delivered one masterpiece after another - from "The Bird with the Crystal Plumage " to "Profondo Rosso" and "Suspiria." In the 80s, there have still been such great films as »Tenebrae« and »Opera«. Many fans say that this film ended the great time of the master. In the 90s and 2000s, he could no longer build on old successes. His "Dracula" from 2012 failed with critics and audiences.

After a long break, the now 79-year-old reports back. The old master of Italian horror directs the TV-series »Longinus«. It's about mysterious murders, associated with ancient secrets. The series takes place in the French Alps, Grenoble and the Italian Siena. We are curious!

14.10.2019 • NOT YOUR KID'S TOYS

SIDESHOW brought us a really cool online discovered object. The premium manufacturer surely moves many collectors - especially the fathers among them - into gasping with their »scariest commercial ever«. It shows in a very funny way: "Our collectibles are no toys for kids."

You should definitely check out the clip!

10.10.2019 • THE S.P.A.C.E TOP 5 AT THE MOVIES IN OCTOBER

Although the summer hole seems to be behind us now, the October is not quite as lusciously peppered with highlights, as you would wish in this rainy weather. There is nothing better than to escape into the cinema when there's such a dirty weather. So here comes our Top 5 of new starts in the autumn month:

Number 5:
THE ADDAMS FAMILY | release date: 24.10.2019
When the title track started we caught ourselfs fingers snapping and you get joined in to meet the (this time animated) Addams family again.

Number 4:
GEMINI MAN | release date: 03.10.2019
The reviews were rather mixed - but we are curious about Will Smith and his digitally rejuvenated ego.

Number 3:
SCARY STORIES TO TELL IN THE DARK | release date: 31.10.2019
At his biggest project so far, the Norwegian filmmaker André Øvredal gets strong support by Guillermo del Toro, who is not just the producer, but also co author at the script.

Number 2:
TERMINATOR: DARK FATE | release date: 24.10.2019
The sixth part of the Terminator franchise is basically a must, even though we do not want to hang our expectations too high after the Genisys flop. Linda Hamilton was bad ass in the trailers though.

Number 1:
JOKER | release date: 10.10.2019
The Joker is actually the all-over highlight of the month. The fact that Joaquin Phoenix offers a performance worthy of an Oscar here is on everyone's lips. Today the film finally also hits German theaters. We are looking forward to the flick like crazy.

The S.P.A.C.E Crew wishes you good times at the movies!

09.10.2019 • A LEGEND NEVER LEAVES THE FIGHT

At the New York Comic Con, there was a very special treat, not only for trekkies: the new trailer of »Star Trek: Picard«. The 2:40 minutes give you (as well as the first trailer) heavy goose bumps. In addition to Patrick Stewart, you will also get to see Jeri Ryan as »Seven of Nine«, Brent Spiner as »Data«, Jonathan Frakes as »Will Riker« and Marina Sirtis as »Deanna Troi«.

It can only be speculated about the content. The story takes place 19 years after »Star Trek: Nemesis«. Picard is now admiral, but he left Starfleet. Probably the dissolution of the Romulan empire plays a role and, as the trailer shows, we will probably meet the Borg again.

That makes extremely appetite for more. In Germany, the series starts on January 24th 2020 on Prime Video.

08.10.2019 • NEW YORK COMIC CON 2019

The New York Comic Con is - after SDCC - one of the most important events around the topics comic, film, TV and of course collectibles. Also at the Big Apple, superheroes made the race again. :)

In the high-end area, XM STUDIOS had some real lumps to offer, like the still unpainted JLA vs. Darkseid Diorama. That's huge! Harley Quinn, of course, always makes a fine figure, whether with hyenas or with a Vespa. Lobo is also super cool on his space bike. At POP CULTURE SHOCK, we liked Spidey in a very dynamic pose. And »The Rock« is on our list of the coolest guys under the sun for a long time anyway. There was not much news at SIDESHOW - most of it was already presented in San Diego. Actually the only novelty was Cyclops as Premium Format Figure. HOT TOYS only had a small showcase - there were, among others, the first two figures from »The Mandalorian«. In the horror section of KOTOBUKIYA there was an unpainted Beetlejuice and a billboard with a silhouette of Ms. Pennywise. NECA had set up some really pretty »Turtles« dioramas. Horror fans will probably enjoy a few action figures from classics like »Re-Animator« from AMOK TIME. A very special retro flash gave us no other than PLAYMOBIL: after the »Ghostbusters«, there will be another 80's classic license with »Back to the Future«. Very nice!

We've collected some of our highlights in this little album. If you want to go into detail, you will find good coverage of all the collecibles shown by the friends at ToyArk and figures.com.

Enjoy browsing!

07.10.2019 • EVEN MORE TV SUPERHEROES...

... is exactly what the world needs. ;) From today on, also we in Germany benefit from the DC series DOOM PATROL - at least if you have a »Prime Video« subscription. Shortly after THE BOYS, Amazon is serving us another funny sarcastic superhero series.

Let's see, what  Mr. Nobody, The Chief, Elasti-Woman, Negative Man and „Crazy“ Jane have to offer... In the US, the first season was already on screen in February this year. It performs pretty well in the IMDb with a good 8/10 - season two is confirmed for next year.

04.10.2019 • HAPPY (TRIPLE) FORCE FRIDAY!

Today, the pulse of all STAR WARS fans around the world goes up steeply again, because we are celebrating the - meanwhile established - »Force Friday«, the official launch date of new toys, collectibles and merchandise for the new movie.

This time, DISNEY made a triple out of it, which means not only novelties about »The Rise of Skywalker« but also new products to the Disney+ series »The Mandalorian« and the EA game »Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order« will be sold for the first time or presented to the world public.

An absolute highlight would of course be a new and probably final trailer of EPISODE IX. We have to say that we are indeed slightly excited ;)

02.10.2019 • HYENA QUINN

The first long trailer of »Birds of Prey« is here and it clearly puts the focus on Harley Quinn. We do not get to see much of the other Birds yet, but surely a second trailer will manage that... We think that the pictures really create appetite for the movie! One highlight will be how Harley gets her hyenas as her favorite pets :) Also Ewan McGregor makes a very good first impression - let's see how he will look under his black mask.

But: we hold back the euphoria a little - sure, you remember the brachial trailers of Suicide Squad and then the rather sobering final result... However the final product will turn out this time - Margot Robbie perfectly embodies the absolutely crazy and unpredictable leader of the Birds of Prey. And she sure is a valid reason to visit the theater.

Of course we also hope that there will be many cool collectibles of the Birds by Hot Toys, DC Collectibles and other brands.

01.10.2019 • PRODUCT OF THE MONTH OCTOBER 2019

When Donald Fauntleroy Duck took over his first minor role in a Mickey Mouse movie in 1934, he would not have dreamed that he would become the most famous duck in the world. After further supporting roles, he made his big breakthrough in 1938 with his own series and the short film »Don Donald«. His fame extends far beyond Duckburg - in 2004, Hollywood honored the feathered superstar in the sailor outfit with a star on the Walk of Fame.

Also we want to pay homage to the Duck today and make the »Donald Duck - Miracle Land Statue« by Beast Kingdom to our Product of the Month October 2019.

The Taiwanese manufacturer did already prove his quality with the Stitch and the Elsa statue. They now caught the iconic Donald Duck in a great pose and set him a monument with this limited collectible.

30.09.2019 • TOM HOLLAND STAYS!

Tom Holland has some reasons to be happy. Sony and Disney have finally agreed - Holland remains in the MCU! A third Spider-Man Solo will start on July 16th 2021 and Spidey will also still be involved in other MCU films and series. Parallel Sony is creating the "Spider-Verse" with Tom Holland in the main role.

It also became known that the actor will take over the role of Nathan Drake in the film adaptation of the video game hit »Uncharted«. Already four directors were under discussion for this project, but all of them jumped off. Now it seems as if Travis Knight will be the choice. Planned cinematic release of »Uncharted« will be in December 2021.

We look forward to meet the friendly spider from the neighborhood again and we are also curious about how Holland masters the part of Nathan Drake.

27.09.2019 • CAL'S MISSION

The official STAR WARS YouTube channel hosted a live-stream yesterday, so to say a forerunner on the upcoming »Triple Force Friday« where the first figures and gimmicks on »The Rise of Skywalker«, »The Mandalorian« and »Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order« have been revealed. The show was set up really nicely, especially because the hosts had a couple of cast members as guests and they presented them their very own plastic mini-me versions. Here you can find the link to the 45-minutes video.

Besides the first collectibles, surely the biggest bang for all gaming fans came from main actor Cameron Monaghan aka Cal Kestis. He came up with a brand-new »Fallen Order« character trailer called »Cal's Mission« which premiered during the stream. Well if this doesn't tease enough to already heat up your XBOX or PS4 ;-)
FALLEN ORDER will be released on 15th November!

25.09.2019 • YOU READY...?

Netflix already presented two short teasers - now there is a first "real" trailer of the »Breaking Bad« movie EL CAMINO, which will be released in about two weeks already.

Also this clip doesn't reveal anything from the story. You only see a pretty wrecked Jesse, who - being on the run - is looking for a hideout at his old companions Skinny Pete and Badger. There is also a cliffhanger at the end of the trailer - what Jesse is ready with and who is asking him, remains unanswered... We still have to be patient until October 11th for that.

24.09.2019 • FAREWELL, CAPTAIN SPAULDING

Sid Haig passed away. This sad news reached us yesterday shortly after our team meeting for our weekly planning. Actually we wanted to present you the new 3 FROM HELL trailer to Sidney's new film light-hearted today. But the message made us and every other fan of the popular Captain Spaulding nearly speechless. He died last Saturday at the age of 80.

We and surely some of you experienced him a few years ago at the »Weekend of Hell«. As a counterpart to his sinister roles in the Rob Zombie movies, he was a very likable person and it was pure fun listening to him at the panels.

Although being sad, we are looking forward to 3 FROM HELL, which will be released at the movies on September 27th. Here's the final trailer for Rob Zombie's new horror movie.

We will never forget Sid and his iconic roles. The NECA figure, which is signed by him, will find its place securely in our office...

23.09.2019 • HAPPY MOTU MONDAY!

The flood of MASTERS OF THE UNIVERSE arrivals doesn't stop this month...

Therefore, dear MOTU fans, we rounded up the latest info in today's MOTU MONDAY special issue of our newsletter for you.

19.09.2019 • SUPERNATURAL - ONE LAST TIME

Everything comes to an end, even »Supernatural«. In October, the Winchester brothers get into Dean's '67 Chevrolet Impala for the last time and embark on the adventures of the 15th and final season of the series. For this occasion, a new poster and a new trailer were released.

Here at S.P.A.C.E, Tobi is a big fan of Supernatural - for some others in the team, the mystery series is still on the to-watch-list. The fans in Germany have to wait another year until season 15 will be available on German Pay-TV.

17.09.2019 • THIS IS THE SUICIDE SQUAD

Do you remember the super cool trailer of Suicide Squad, cut on Queen's »Bohemian Rhapsody«? How did we celebrate this at the time... But after the movie, there was more like a hangover mood. Well, some characters - especially Harley Quinn - left a lasting impression. But the story of the film was anything but not exactly whipped cream.

As you know, DC and WARNER start a new attempt, probably in the form of a soft reboot and not really as a sequel. To be honest, »The Suicide Squad« is not yet really predictable to us.

Director James Gunn (Guardians of the Galaxy) shared the cast list of the new movie on Twitter recently. There will be a reunion with some old acquaintances like Margot Robbie, Viola Davis, Joel Kinnaman and Jai Courtney. Also numerous new names like Idris Elba, Michael Rooker and Nathan Fillion are on the list. Jared Leto is missing though.

The film will launch in 2021. So there could be still a lot to happen. We remain cautiously optimistic - in any case, we expect cool collectibles by DC, Hot Toys an co.

For those who can't wait, we highly recommend the super hot Harley Quinn Premium Format Figure by SIDESHOW.

16.09.2019 • SATURN AWARDS 2019

On Friday, the 45. SATURN AWARDS were presented in Hollywood. Since this award is all about genre productions like science-fiction, fantasy, horror and thriller, this prize has just the right amount of geekability to be interesting to us.

The big winner of the evening was Marvel with six awards, including »Best Comic-to-Motion Picture Release« for »Avengers: Endgame« and »Best Actor in a Film« for Robert Downey Jr.

As the best actress in a movie, Jamie Lee Curtis was awarded for »Halloween«.

HBO's »Game of Thrones« brought four prizes home to Westeros. »Westworld« was awarded as the best science-fiction series.

Here is the list of all winners and nominations.

12.09.2019 • IT IS PENNYWISE

"IT" is now running since one week and it is already apparent that also Part 2 will make a proper checkout - even if the critics to the film are a bit restrained. Did you already watch IT?

We are very pleased that Hot Toys announced their 1/6 Pennywise at the right time. We have already seen him at the SDCC in July - now the dancing clown is finally available for pre-order on our website. And it has become a marvelous cool figure!

If you like it really big though, there's also a Pennywise in 1/3 scale by Elite Creature Collectibles ;)

10.09.2019 • IS "IT" HARLEY QUINN?

It seems as if the creatives at WARNER are really into red balloons. Everybody knows that they are the hallmark of Pennywise. To do a self-deprecating marketing bridge to BIRDS OF PREY, will have surprised the visitors of IT - CHAPTER 2, surely.

Harley Quinn is »so f***ing over clowns« and she drums up her also loopy and sexy colleagues from the DC villain pool to ring in the »Fantabulous Emancipation of One Harley Quinn« for February 2020.

By the way, the film is supposed to be rated R. That's right! Because a family friendly Harley Quinn is basically a contradiction in terms.

You can find the newest trailer with the red balloons here.

09.09.2019 • CAUSE IT'S BAD BOYS FOR LIFE

Full 17 years after their last movie, the BAD BOYS are back - namely FOR LIFE!

The trailer looks pretty cool and makes - at least us - hungry for the movie. Will Smith and Martin Lawrence have - of course - grown older (and Big Mama... ahh Lawrence a bit chubbier) and they play their roles with much wit and self-irony. No question, they will let it rip in Miami again.

»BAD BOYS FOR LIFE« will hit German theaters in January 2020. Exactly your thing - or do you rather think: Who needs a third part now?!

05.09.2019 • THE S.P.A.C.E TOP 5 AT THE MOVIES IN SEPTEMBER

Hooray! The summer hole is behind us and the cinema autumn promises to be exciting with some high-carats in the starting blocks. For September, it was not easy to agree on a Top 5. There was not much to discuss in the high entries, but there was a lot to choose from for the numbers 3 to 5, which will at least drive some of our crew to the theaters. Our Minority Report calls here: »Downton Abby«, »The Goldfinch« and the Dreamworks animated film »Abominable«.
And here is our top 5:

Number 5:
AD ASTRA | release date: 19.09.2019
It took a long time - now it is here. The cast with Brad Pitt, Liv Tyler, Tommy Lee Jones and Donald Sutherland lures us to the movies.

Number 4:
READY OR NOT | release date: 26.09.2019
That promises to be pretty bloody. 17 wedding dresses in various stages of decay and bloody pollution were needed for lead actress Samara Weaving.

Number 3:
MIDSOMMAR | release date: 26.09.2019
After the overwhelming success of »Hereditary« the expectations of the new Ari Aster movie are of course high.

Number 2:
RAMBO: LAST BLOOD | release date: 19.09.2019
It's the return of action legend Sylvester Stallone as John Rambo almost 40 years after the »First Blood«. Of course, we can not get around.

Number 1:
IT CHAPTER 2 | release date: 05.09.2019
Part 1 is considered the most commercially successful horror movie of all time. Twenty-seven years after the stage victory against the evil, the Losers' Club returns to the city of Derry, facing the diabolic clown Pennywise again. We're looking forward to the adult losers (including James McAvoy and Jessica Chastain) and also to see the kids again (in flashbacks). And above all, of course, to Bill Skarsgård as Pennywise.

The S.P.A.C.E Crew wishes you good times at the movies!

03.09.2019 • PUT ON A HAPPY FACE

For movie critics, comic book adaptations from the superhero genre are probably something more like a guilty pleasure. So it amazes even more that JOKER got his eight-minute standing ovations at his world premiere at the Venice Film Festival. Right - EIGHT minutes!!!

And that has good reasons: Joker has become an adult R-Rated movie with the exceptional talent Joaquin Phoenix in the title role. The critics' reaction to the film is multiplying our anticipation and we can well imagine that the Joaquin Phoenix Joker is equal to or even trumps the acclaimed portrayal of Heath Ledger, and Phoenix finally will get the long overdue Oscar after three nominations.

02.09.2019 • PRODUCT OF THE MONTH SEPTEMBER 2019

IRON STUDIOS is rather a young player in the world of collectibles - the manufacturer, which is based in Brazil by the way, was launched only in 2012. After - according to us - initial difficulties, which especially concerned the head sculpts of human characters, Iron Studios shaped up pretty well and they can now confidently be referred to as an established and credible brand. Not only the quality of the products but also the portfolio of licenses is really gratifying.

That's why it was only a matter of time until we finally would point out a statue by Iron Studios as our »Product of the Month«. In spite of the dominating MCU contingent, we decided to pick a classic - the SUPERMAN 1/10 Deluxe Art Scale Statue, which is based on the very first movie from 1978. Superman's pose and simply the whole realization of the statue, including a flexible »Stars and Stripes« flag, pay tribute to the unforgettable Christopher Reeve. This collectible is definitely a great highlight in the collection of every fan of classic comic film adaptions.

29.08.2019 • EL CAMINO

What is Jesse Pinkman doing?

This question might be answered by »El Camino: A Breaking Bad Movie«. The movie will air on Netflix on 11th October already.

"After his dramatic escape from captivity, Jesse has to deal with his past and plan for his future..." so the summary. Of course, Aaron Paul plays his leading role. Whether Bryan Cranston will appear in any form as Walter White in the movie, is still a secret. Series creator Vince Gilligan takes his place on the director's chair again. Here you can see a first appetizer:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lZKqMVPlDg8

The series finale of Breaking Bad was a precision landing. Does it really need a sequel? Nevertheless, we can not resist and look forward to this new chapter.

28.08.2019 • D23 ROUND UP: STAR WARS

The second hot topic at this year's D23 Expo was of course STAR WARS. For all our pleasures DISNEY was not stingy with news and new material.

There is a teaser-poster of Episode IX and the breathtaking „Special Look“ on »The Rise of Skywalker«. The last scene of the clips ignited fireworks of speculations among fans. Will Rey end up on the dark side of the Force in the end?

The trailer for the Disney+ series THE MANDALORIAN, which will take place after »Return of the Jedi«, is pretty gloomy and quite promising.

And then one of the big moments - Ewan McGregor on stage with Lucasfilm president Kathleen Kennedy:
„Kathleen, can you ask me in front of all these people, can you please ask me, am I going to play Obi-Wan Kenobi again.“
„...Ewan, are you going to play Obi-Wan Kenobi again?“
„YES!“
Of course cheers broke out in the hall big time!

CLONE WARS also finds its new home at Disney + and airs on February 22nd 2020 with brand-new episodes of season 7 there.

Another yet unnamed series is to become a prequel to ROGUE ONE, focusing on the adventures of Cassian Andor and K-2SO. The series seens to be in pre-production already.

Disney fired off a full broadside also when it comes to Star Wars. May it be fall :-)

27.08.2019 • D23 ROUND UP: MARVEL

Last weekend, the D23 Expo took place in Anaheim, California. This is the big fan event which DISNEY aligns itself and shows us once again what now belongs to the media giant.

Around the MCU, there were a bunch of news, specific release dates for some movies and showpieces such as new posters on BLACK WIDOW, WANDA VISION and FALCON & THE WINTER SOLDIER

Already at San Diego Comic Con, MARVEL president Kevin Feige revealed several new Marvel films and series. Now he announced three more launches on the new streaming service »Disney+« on top of the five already known shows: SHE HULK, MS. MARVEL and MOON KNIGHT!

Disney + launches in the US in November. The first two European countries will join in the following two months. A German launch date is not yet known, but we think the first quarter of 2020 is very likely.

Disney's major offensive to break Netflix's dominance in the streaming business is already in full swing. If you want to see all the new series in the MCU and in the Star Wars universe, you probably can not get around a Disney + subscription. Because the new content will only available there. However, sometimes we ask ourselves, who has so much spare time to watch all this...

26.08.2019 • MOTU MONDAY: LOS AMOS, POWER-CON, VINTAGE WAVE 3 AND REACTION FIGURES!

After a little dry spell we are finally having another MOTU MONDAY, dear »Masters of the Universe« fans!

Since the announcement came shooting out of all corners of Eternia during the last couple of days, we decided to round up the current happening in a special newsletter for you:

https://www.space-figuren.de/nl/nl2019-kw35a_en_web.html

Have fun browsing!

Just a hint for all pre-ordering customers: even if all the different shipments will arrive here during the whole month of September, we would prefer to combine as many pre-orders as possible. Like if you, for example, pre-ordered Vintage Wave 3 and the Power-Con Exclusives, then you would get 1 package from us. If you don't want to wait and prefer several instant shipments instead, please let us know.

22.08.2019 • WELCOME TO THE MATRIX. AGAIN!

MATRIX part 4 is confirmed! You are reading correctly - Keanu Reeves will return to the silver screen as Neo. Also Carrie-Anne Moss will be back as Trinity and Lana Wachowski will take the lead again as director, writer and producer. Whether Hugo Weaving as Agent Smith and Laurence Fishburne as Morpheus will also be on board, is not yet known.

The first Matrix of 1999 set standards in genre cinema. Don't we all still remember how enthusiastic we came from the cinema back then. Well, in case of part 2 and 3 opinions differed a lot. We're excited to see what the new sequel will come up with...

21.08.2019 • THE OLD BEN KENOBI...

Now it seems to be official and confirmed by »Variety«, »Deadline« and »The Hollywood Reporter«. Ewan McGregor will be returning as Jedi Master OBI-WAN KENOBI! Not on the big screen but on the telly in the form of a series for Disney's own streaming service »Disney+«.

According to McGregor's age, the story will probably be located between Episode III and IV.

What do you think? Do you feel the Force and is this a reason to celebrate - or does Disney milk the Star Wars franchise to death in the battle for market share?

19.08.2019 • MOTU x NETFLIX

MOTU fans, heads up! The week is kickin' off with incredible news, directly from POWER-CON which tool place last weekend in Anaheim (California):

NETFLIX in collaboration with »MATTEL television« will produce a brand-new MASTERS OF THE UNIVERSE animated TV show! Show runner and creative head will be Kevin Smith, who we all know and love for his cult movies like »Clerks«, »Mallrats«, »Dogma« and of course »Jay and Silent Bob«. Kevin himself revealed the news inlcuding a first artwork during a panel at Power-Con. You can imagine how the crowd on-site was freakin' out.

Toy YouTuber PIXEL DAN was also there and able to catch Kevin for an interview in front of the camera. You have to check out this cool conversation:
https://youtu.be/mUPxr2fhLAk

So Eternia's future is safe :-) Looking at figure news, it's also heating up here like hell these days. More details can be discovered on our website during the next days and upcoming MOTU Monday in our news...

14.08.2019 • DROGON (GAME OF THRONES) - MCFARLANE TOYS

GAME OF THRONES - for many the best series of all time - is history. Nevertheless, we are still getting blessed by collectible novelties to the series. A special highlight of the past weeks was DROGON by McFarlane Toys.

We just had to fly towards the sunset with him... and thanks to the great support of wonderbunk, the result are some super atmospheric pictures. You can find them in our Facebook album.

Drogon is in stock right now and therefore immediately available, by the way:

At a price of under 40 EUR, this figure is a MUST for all GoT fans ;-)

13.08.2019 • INFINITE S.P.A.C.E - INFINITE TERROR

Do you know EVENT HORIZON? The sci-fi horror film from the year 1997 didn't get good reviews, but is now considered as an underrated genre pearl with a solid fan base. The director Paul W.S. Anderson had actually planned a 30-minute longer version, but Paramount pulled the emergency brake at that time, because the result in brutality would have become too hefty. Unfortunately, a director's cut never came.

But there are good news - Amazon and Paramount Television are teaming up to reopen the gate to hell - as a series. »You're Next« maker Adam Wingard will take seat in the director's chair. Are you ready for the hell trip?

12.08.2019 • THE 1/6 WORLD

Not even half a year and the 2010s are history. According to our current arrival at the 1/6 Super Section, our colleague Mick, "Master of 1/6 Puppets", put together an interesting retrospective. He explores the following question in the Action Figure District: What has happened in the 1/6 world in the outgoing decade? For all collectors of this scale, this is really an exciting and well-researched article.

08.08.2019 • THE S.P.A.C.E TOP 5 AT THE MOVIES IN AUGUST

It seems as if we are not out the summer hole yet. In some months, so many blasts hit the theaters, that it's almost impossible to limit the selection to five films. August is more like a month, where we were glad to find five cool movies for our list...
So here's our August cinema watchlist:

Number 5:
FAST & FURIOUS: HOBBS & SHAW | release date: 01.08.2019
Shut down the brain in the economy mode, order a bucket of popcorn and get ready for some entertaining action fun!

Number 4:
CRAWL | release date: 22.08.2019
Alexandre Aja understands something about the horror genre - let's see what he made out of the alligator story.

Number 3:
TOY STORY 4 | release date: 15.08.2019
A reunion with Woody and Buzz Lightyear - that's like meeting old friends.

Number 2:
I AM MOTHER | release date: 22.08.2019
After the trailer, we have marked this movie in our calendar - also because WETA is involved.

Number 1:
ONCE UPON A TIME IN HOLLYWOOD | release date: 15.08.2019
A Tarantino is the classic No Brainer. And if movie lover Quentin takes on Hollywood, then we look forward to a quotes-rich cinema pleasure.

The S.P.A.C.E Crew wishes you good times at the movies!

06.08.2019 • BIOSHOCK - THE MOVIE

Fans have been waiting for a long time for a film adaptation of the first-person shooter BIOSHOCK. Now »Mortal Kombat« author Greg Russo announced his interest in a BioShock movie. In an interview with »Comicbook«, Russo argues that he would put the main focus on the horror elements of the game. We like to hear that - but it may be a bit early to errupt in cheers, because there have been some failed attempts to a screen adaption...

Anyway, we would be really thrilled by it! The underwater world with the Art Deco style design of America in the 1930s, plus Big Daddy and Little Sister - that sounds like a visual treat.

What would you say about a BioShock movie?

05.08.2019 • CHAPTER 2

Just one month left and »IT CHAPTER 2« will hit the theaters. For the countdown, Warner Bros. just released another new, very stylish poster. Would eye lie to you?

We are very impressed by the graphic concept of the It Posters and we are looking forward to the movie with eager expectations.

What about you? Are you also counting the days until we meet the Losers' Club and Pennywise, the dancing clown, again?

01.08.2019 • PRODUCT OF THE MONTH AUGUST 2019

BLITZWAY is quite a small manufacturer in relation to others, but they managed to play in the first league of collectibles providers with great care, high quality and lots of enthusiasm. That especially applies to the 1:6 sector, where they recently left a lasting impression to the collectors' community with the Ghostbusters and the Ecto-1. The second mainstay at Blitzway are the magnificently realized 1/4 "Hybrid type" statues with highlights like e.g. Marilyn Monroe and Sharon Stone - and of course the latest release: Don Vito Corleone from »The Godfather«.

»The Godfather« or »Der Pate«, as the movie is called in Germany, is one of the modern classics of American cinema, it made Al Pacino a star and gave Marlon Brando his most memorable role. The studio management wanted to neither bind Pacino nor Brando. Good for film history and us, that director Francis Ford Coppola made his way.

The 1/4 Superb Scale Vito Corleone Statue by Blitzway catches the mafia godfather perfectly, just as if the Don had just emerged from the big screen. Making him our Product of the Month August 2019 was inevitably an offer we could not refuse.

This collector's piece surely brings joy to the heart of every fan of classic movies. "Great men are not born great, they grow great..."

31.07.2019 • THE »THE WALKING DEAD« UNIVERSE

As we already know for some time, THE WALKING DEAD will get another spin-off. AMC released a first teaser for the still unnamed series. And now, it's already talked about the "Walking Dead Universe". How imaginative...

The teaser almost doesn't reveal anything, shows a bit of concept art and introduces the youthful protagonists, what may be due to the success of STRANGER THINGS. Teenagers in horror context - well that's also something that likes to backfire. And a coming-of-age story in the shadow of the zombie apocalypse? That, unfortunately, sounds like a lot of nerve potential.

Once upon a time, TWD was AMC's main attraction, but it weakened for quite a while and got low viewing figures. From the ninth season onwards, with new showrunner Angela Kang, the series is back on the way up a little. We will learn what the new series is good for in spring 2020. Let's be surprised (hopefully positive).

30.07.2019 • JOIN THE BOYS!

The whole world loves superheroes. Superheroes are also superstars causing a gigantic media interest and attracting millions of fans and followers. Above all, superheroes are a very lucrative business. In fact, most superheroes are big assholes...

If you are trembling now and say we're insulting one of your favorite heroes, you're on the wrong track, because we're not talking about Marvel and DC here. We are talking about the new AMAZON series »The Boys«.

The many parallels to the persistent superhero hype is of course intended by the authors. In »Homelander«, for example, we recognize Captain America, in »Queen Maeve« Wonder Woman, in »A-Train« The Flash and in »The Deep« Aquaman. Who has super powers, can dare a lot. Homelander sums it up: "I'm a superhero. I can do whatever the fuck I want!". Collateral damage is simply covered up in the interest of big business. This must also be experienced by Hughie Campbell, whose girlfriend becomes a superhero victim. He gets a visit from Billy Butcher, who has every reason to hate the Sups passionately. And so The Boys are being founded...

If you're a little superhero-tired or want a refreshing satirical perspective, then you're deinately in the right place with this brand-new show! And, by the way, it comes from the same folks behind SUPERNATURAL and SAUSAGE PARTY and definately has a high addictive potential.

29.07.2019 • BACK IN THE ZOMBIELAND

2009 - so unbelievable 10 years ago! - ZOMBIELAND hit the theaters and became a big surprise hit. Now the sequel »Zombieland: Double Tap« will follow and almost all the cast and crew members are back on board: Ruben Fleischer again takes the director's seat, the authors Rhett Reese and Paul Wernick deliver the story again and there is a reunion with the four main actors Tallahassee (Woody Harrelson), Columbus (Jesse Eisenberg), Wichita (Emma Stone) and Little Rock (Abigail Breslin). These are already good prospects!

We are curious if part 2 can build on the spirit of its predecessor. Of course, we are looking forward to the movie, but we have to say that the first trailer - which is currently available only in the English original - has not really ignited with us...

26.07.2019 • MAD MAX RETURNS?

It was one of THE unexpected successes at the theaters of the past years: MAD MAX - FURY ROAD. The fourth part of the Mad Max series, which already started in 1979, is really a terrific end-time-action-cracker that hardly anyone would have expected like that. The film with Tom Hardy and Charlize Theron was decorated with six Oscars in 2016.

Now it seems as if there will be a sequel or even up to 3 more movies! Director George Miller confirmed that he has ideas for three movies in his mind and really would like to realize these projects. Still there is some trouble though because of the dispute between Millers production company and Warner Bros. - but they are on a right way.

We would like to see Mad Max back on the big screen so bad! :)

24.07.2019 • SIDESHOW'S COURT OF THE DEAD

In addition to all the superheroes, super villains and adventurers from galaxies far away, SIDESHOW launched »Court of the Dead« a few years ago with their own original concept, creating an individual combination full of horror and morbid eroticism. Who never nibbled at death, never rummaged in grief…

The statues in the Premium Format are real eye-catchers and you can see, how much fun the artists had working on them. Of course, the artworks are not cheap and those who want to collect them not only need the appropriate budget but also a lot of space.
So it is all the more pleasing that Sideshow now brings the characters in a PVC version on a handy scale. Last week, the first three models arrived at the S.P.A.C.E headquarter. And good luck for us: toy photographer Patrick alias "wonderbunk" was our guest on the SDCC weekend and took some awesome photos of »Kier«. The first shipment of her is already out of stock, but we try to get supplies. The other characters are immediately available - you can find them here.

More magnificent captures from the shooting can be admired on our Instagram Channel.

Kier also appears as a 1/6 scale »First Sword of Death« version collectors figure in cooperation with TBLeague. There comes life to the realm of the dead...

23.07.2019 • SDCC 2019 ROUND-UP: OUR HIGHLIGHTS (2)

As we all expected, this year's SAN DIEGO COMIC CON gave us a big boost of new trailers. Including a lot of material that really makes us hungry for the productions. From veteran series such as »The Walking Dead« (which is getting better again under new showrunner Angela Kang) to promising newcomers like »Watchmen«, »His Dark Materials« and »The Witcher«, to »Star Trek: Picard« (goose bumps!).

At the panels, especially the MARVEL Panel was eagerly awaited by the fans. Marvel Studios Head Kevin Feige - supported by clenched star power - presented Phase 4 of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, leaving many cats out of the bag. Comic dude Marc, who was our guest on Saturday, reacted with lightning speed and put together an overview of the upcoming Marvel movies and series on his YouTube channel Der Comic Laden.

17.07.2019 • SDCC 2019 COUNTDOWN: 1 DAY LEFT

Tomorrow it starts again - the awesome SAN DIEGO COMIC CON madness!

Like every year, we will provide you with many Breaking News on our Facebook page, with collectible highlights in the ticker, news about panels, new trailers and everything that has the necessary geekability.

And like every year, we invited guests to our live streams. This year, toy photographer Patrick alias wonderbunk, Marc from the YouTube channel "Der Comic Laden" and our S.P.A.C.E outpost Mick, staff member and Action Figure District creator. We scheduled a stream on Friday evening at about 6 pm and another one on Saturday at 1 pm - on all common platforms. We look forward to many of you tuning in and have a chat with us!

16.07.2019 • SDCC 2019 COUNTDOWN: MATTEL EXCLUSIVES

Only one more day until San Diego Comic Con! Let's take a look at Mattel and the highlights that the veterans at the Toy Market are presenting as Exclusives this year.

Of course, there are various HOT WHEELS to well known films and comics. For fans of JURASSIC PARK, there is a 3" action figure of beloved John Hammond from the Jurassic World Legacy Collection. Also the MACHO MAN RANDY SAVAGE action figure with accessories from a »Slim Jim« commercial looks pretty cool. Very colorful is the four-piece SILVER AGE set with Negative suit Batman by Detective Comics #284, Zebra Batman by Detective Comics #275, Rainbow Batman by Detective Comics #241 and of course also a classic Batman.

For all MASTERS OF THE UNIVERSE fans there will be a He-Man & Prince Adam double pack, which comes in a really nice 80s oldschool comic style box! The set marks the beginning of the new announced »MOTU Origins« line. Mattel also brings an exclusive MOTU Mega Construx Battle Bones set plus a 2-pack of She-Ra and Shadow Weaver to the DreamWorks/Netflix series »She-Ra And the Princesses of Power«.

We assume that the Mattel Exclusives are going to be extremely desired at the San Diego Comic Con. Unfortunately, Mattel didn't make any concrete plans for an international distribution of the new MOTU line so far, so we probably won't be able to get bigger quantities of the 2-packs (for a reasonable price). But we keep an eye on that, of course!

15.07.2019 • SDCC 2019 COUNTDOWN: HASBRO EXCLUSIVES

Only two days left until SAN DIEGO COMIC CON 2019! We are looking forward to interesting panels, new trailers and countless collectibles. Will we get to see a new Star Wars trailer for Episode IX? Speaking of Star Wars IX... that brings us to Hasbro:

In the »Black Series« comes the brand new, fiery red SITH TROOPER as official harbinger of »The Rise of Skywalker«. He will probably be the most popular exclusive at the Hasbro Pulse booth. Hot Toys will also introduce the figure in San Diego - but in 1/6 scale.

Other Hasbro Star Wars exclusives will include a 6" BOBA FETT and a 3.75" Vintage Collection Original Trilogy LUKE SKYWALKER Jedi Destiny figure set.

Who ya gonna call? Transformers! Wait, what?!? Yes, Hasbro's next SDCC exclusivity is a crossover between Transformers and Ghostbusters: the ECTOTRON ECTO-35. Both franchises are celebrating their 35th anniversary this year.

And because we love Jeff Goldblum, we're passionate about Marvel Legend's THE ELDERS OF THE UNIVERSE, featuring 6" versions of the Collector and Grandmaster.

12.07.2019 • SDCC 2019 COUNTDOWN: HOT TOYS EXCLUSIVES

We are on the home stretch - only six days to go for San Diego Comic Con!

As in every past year, HOT TOYS also brings us some "Summer Toy Fairs" exclusives. This time, it's Spider-Man from the »Marvel's Spider-Man« videogame (okay... not bad). Then we have a new Harvey Dent aka Two-Face, a state-of-the-art re-issue of this character which already was released some years ago. Toy Fair exclusive number 3 is really a big bang though: Stan Lee in space suit, as seen in this cameo in »Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2«. This will absolutely be the figure which fans will be fighting for. What an awesome idea and a wonderful, posthumous tribute to the grand master. Excelsior!

11.07.2019 • THE WORST MONSTERS ARE THE ONES WE CREATE.

With the end of »Game of Thrones«, many fantasy fans wonder if the NETFLIX series »The Witcher« might be the substitute drug of choice. A start date is not fixed yet, but it is likely that it could be in December already. Recently, Netflix released the first pictures of Henry Cavill (Geralt), Anya Cholatra (Yennefer) and Freya Allan (Ciri). We think that they looks great. The three actors will also be featured in a panel at San Diego Comic Con. In addition, we take every bet that we can spot the first Witcher trailer during SDCC.

When it comes to collectibles, the videogame series is already well served. Let's see if there is also a licensee for the TV series. In terms of optics, there surely is a lot of potential :-)

10.07.2019 • SDCC 2019 COUNTDOWN: IRON STUDIOS EXCLUSIVES

Only 9 days left until SDCC. Today, we'll take a look on the exclusives by IRON STUDIOS. For the 2019 con season, the Brazilian manufacturer will bring four 1/10 Art Scale statues from Marvel Comics, DC Comics, Star Wars and the Marvel Cinematic Universe. And here they are:

Iron Man - Tony Stark and Iron Man Mark I
(to celebrate the 10th anniversary of the MCU comes this double statue)

Marvel Comics - Ghost Rider on his bike
(based on comic references comes this cool Ghost Rider statue including the fiery bike)

DC Comics - Bane
(based on the original concept art of Ivan Reis, this exclusive limited edition has an extra hand that holds Batman's cape)

Star Wars: The Last Jedi - Luke Skywalker
(Luke in the famous scene from EPISODE VIII. This statue comes with two interchangeable heads!)

And the best is yet to come:
The first three positions from the list are already online on our website. We actually expect these three exclusives to arrive in our warehouse already this week! Since the Star Wars license from IRON STUDIOS unfortuntely does not go further than South America, we won't be able to offer Luke.

08.07.2019 • QUIET, COMPOSED, GRACEFUL, DISCIPLINED...

After »The Beauty and the Beast«, »Dumbo«, »Aladdin« and »The Lion King«, DISNEY is now reissuing the next animated classic as a live-action movie with »Mulan«. Release date will be 26th March 2020 - yesterday, Disney published the first trailer!

Besides leading actress Yifei Liu, Donnie Yen, Jet Li and Li Gong are also on board. The New Zealander Niki Caro (Whale Rider) is the director. The film was shot in China and New Zealand.

We think the trailer has epic qualities and is reminiscent of Chinese historical movies. It definitely makes us curious. Will Mulan also attract you to the cinema?

05.07.2019 • SDCC 2019 COUNTDOWN: DIAMOND EXCLUSIVES

Today, we take a look at DIAMOND SELECT TOYS' Exclusives at the San Diego Comic Con 2019.

Of course, many of the usual suspects of MARVEL and DC are here again and long-time favorites like the GHOSTBUSTERS and the MUPPETS. There are action figures, Vinimates, PVC statues and busts. In the action figures segment, the slimed Ghostbusters are our favorites, followed by the Messy Swedish Chef from the Muppets. Let's start a cheerful "Smörrebröd röm töm töm". At DC, Harley Quinn enchants us in her Harlequin outfit from the animated Batman series. At Marvel, we can not decide at all - Captain Marvel, X-Force X-23 as Wolverine and X-Force Deadpool all look great. The last one also comes as a 1/2 scale resin bust in the »Legends 3D« series. Well, Vinimates are a a matter of taste but as robot fans we can not get around B9 from »Lost in Space« and Robby from »Forbidden Planet«, both in the vintage look of classic tin toys.

What are your Diamond Exclusives favorites? An overview can be found on the Diamond website.

04.07.2019 • THE S.P.A.C.E TOP 5 AT THE MOVIES IN JULY

In the heat, for most of us (if we do not have to work), it's off to the quarry pond or the swimming pool. But you can also escape to an air-conditioned cinema - in spite of the summer hole, there are also a few interesting theatrical releases in July. We are still undecided with »Yesterday«, which is NOT a Beatles biopic, but really a far-fetched story... but songs from the Beatles and director Danny Boyle, that would be two reasons FOR the movie.
Anyway, here comes our personal July watchlist. In the "lower" Positions, our anticipation is still a little muted, but let us be surprised.

Number 5:
ANNABELLE 3 | release date: 04.07.2019
Seventh movie in the Conjuring Universe; for all who love jump scares

Number 4:
CHILD'S PLAY | release date: 18.07.2019
The Chucky Remake - if that really was necessary...?

Number 3:
ANNA | release date: 18.07.2019
The new movie by Luc Besson - the man who brought us »Nikita« and »Leon the Professional«

Number 2:
THE LION KING | release date: 17.07.2019
The 3D realization of a Disney classic - the trailer rocks!

Number 1:
SPIDER-MAN: FAR FROM HOME | release date: 04.07.2019
We look forward to a new, fleet-footed Marvel adventure. At Spider-Man it has always been the combination of superhero action and coming-of-age story that made the special attraction. And we just like Tom Holland as Peter Parker very much. So we are glad to take refuge in the air-conditioned cinema.

The S.P.A.C.E Crew wishes you good times at the movies!

02.07.2019 • SDCC 2019 COUNTDOWN: PANELS

At the SAN DIEGO COMIC CON you meet them all: makers and actors, from Hollywood blockbusters to trendy TV series of all channels and streaming portals. Sometimes, there's a big surprise when one of the top players is not represented. Where was »Star Wars« last year? The program is not fixed yet and we can certainly look forward to many exciting announcements. We do not want to speculate about who might be there, but take a look for some already confirmed messages today.

On Thursday there will be a Q&A with Robert Kirkman. There will also be panels on »TWD« and »FTWD«. The cast is not fixed yet though.
On Friday it's going to be very exciting for all Marvel fans, when it's time for »A Conversation with the Russo Brothers«.
After the controversial final season, the panel to »Game of Thrones« should be very interesting. Jacob Anderson (Gray Worm), John Bradley (Samwell Tarly), Nikolaj Coster-Waldau (Jaime Lannister), Liam Cunningham (Davos Seaworth), Nathalie Emmanuel (Missand of Naath), Iain Glen (Ser Jorah Mormont), Conleth Hill (Varys), Maisie Williams (Arya Stark) and Isaac Hempstead Wright (Bran Stark) will be there, as well as Showrunners David Benioff and D.B. Weiss.
Also promising is the panel on »Westworld« featuring creatives Jonathan Nolan and Lisa Joy and actors Ed Harris, Thandie Newton, Aaron Paul, Tessa Thompson, Evan Rachel Wood and Jeffrey Wright.
Among the other series we already know, there are the Amazon Originals »The Expanse« and »The Man in the High Castle« - speaking of old acquaintances.
The Q&As on the FX series »What We Do in the Shadows«, an American TV adaptation of the New Zealand comedy hit, which has not been on our screens yet, seem no less exciting. HBO series very often catch our attention, and so does »His Dark Materials« starring James McAvoy (Split) and Dafne Keen (Logan). Furthermore the Amazon Originals »The Boys«, to which we recently celebrated the trailer and »Carnival Row«, a series starring Orlando Bloom and Cara Delevingne in a Victorian fantasy parallel world.

And that's only a fraction of what we can expect from SDCC 2019...

01.07.2019 • PRODUCT OF THE MONTH JULY 2019

It took a while until we decided to pick a collectible by PRIME 1 STUDIO for our Product of the Month. Now it's about time! Absolutely enthusiastically, we present you the extraordinary, super sexy and just beautiful CATWOMAN MUSEUM MASTERLINE STATUE in 1/3 scale from the cult game »Batman: Arkham Knight«.

The complexity and details, that the Japanese manufacturer Prime 1 is putting into their collectibles, are just breathtaking. The sculpts, poses, paint job and not least the possibilities you have with such a statue, are outpacing the products of other companies by far. Of course, they have their (prodigious) price but they are something really special and definitely a highlight in every collection.

You should definitely take a look at this precious piece and stay excited about what we are planning to do with Catwoman during the month. If you have now gained a taste and you still have budget left from your holiday pay, you now still have the chance to grab one of our last copies. But don't wait too long because she's limited to just 800 pieces!

28.06.2019 • SDCC 2019 COUNTDOWN: FUNKO EXCLUSIVES

Today we are taking a look at this year's SDCC Exclusives by FUNKO. At the probably biggest licensee for - yes, almost EVERYTHING - the motto has always been "we do things in a big way". And so they throw out about 50 Comic Con Exclusives! We are already curious whether there will again be riots, screechings and sustainable pluck out of hair at the Funko booth...

Our favorites are clearly the Big Bang Theory Nerds in their »Justice League« cosplay outfits - what could be better for Comic Con :-)
In second place is Jaws Biting Quint - Bon appetite, Bruce!
Third place in our favor is shared by Forrest Gump, Teen Wolf Scott Howard and Gamora.

Here you can find a - at least so far up-to-date - overview of the 2019 FUNKO Exclusives. Let us know, for which of them you would nab blue spots in the queue.

27.06.2019 • THE BOYS ARE (BACK) IN TOWN!

Let's be honest - if you had superpowers, would you use them for the good of humanity, or just look for your own fun and advantage in a hedonistic way?

It is well known that power often has a decidedly corrupting effect. So who will take care about all those out of the tracks superheroes? That's where THE BOYS come in!

Amazon will launch the (anti)superhero series, based on the comic book by Garth Ennis and Darick Robertson, on July 26. The trailer already clearly shows that it is quite hearty and is not stingy with splatter effects. We think that looks like big fun and makes us extremely hungry for the show. What do you think?

26.06.2019 • SDCC 2019 COUNTDOWN: NECA EXCLUSIVES

The countdown to SAN DIEGO COMIC CON continues: 22 days left to go! To increase the anticipation, we take a look at already announced Exclusives during the waiting time. NECA will be launching 6 Comic Con Exclusives:

- there will be a the cool "The Capture of Splinter" pack of 4 with 7" action figures to the 1990 Turtles Movie
- to the remake of Stephen King's It they release another 7" Pennywise, now in a monochrome "etched" version
- in an 8" Mego-Style with fabric clothes comes Kreese from Karate Kid
- the Ultimate John Connor figure with his motorbike looks also very cool
- there are two more 2-Packs to the DC/Dark Horse Comics, that will be  »Superman vs. Aliens« and »Batman vs. Predator«

There was a big demand for NECA Exclusives in the last years, so we can not predict to catch some of them. The bustle at the Comic Con is also getting crazy more and more. Still, the Cat Fight for some Exclusives at the Funko Booth, for example, brings amusement and head shaking in our team.

25.06.2019 • FAR FROM HOME

On the 4th of July »Spider-Man: Far From Home« will hit German theaters. Spider-Man is on vacation in Europe with his friends.

We think superhero action is doing extremely well in front of the scenes of London and Venice. And Peter Parker in his new stealth suit looks really damn cool and is presented to us collectors by Hot Toys in 1/6 scale in a regular version and a Deluxe Edition with a LED illuminated Molten Man Diorama Figure Base.
 

21.06.2019 • BACK TO 1985

In about two weeks, exactly on the 4th of July, NETFLIX will take us back to the American small town of Hawkins and into the summer of 1985. The streaming service just released the final trailer for the third season of »Stranger Things«. And it makes a big appetite for the series without giving away too much.

We are also looking forward to all the pop cultural references for which the series is well known. As a reminder, we are in the year of »Back to the Future« and the »Goonies« :-)

Are you also looking as forward to the reunion with Eleven, Mike, Dustin and Co. as we do?

19.06.2019 • THE COUNTDOWN TO SDCC IS ON!

The clock is tickin'! Exactly in one month from now, San Diego will again become the epic center of Pop Culture. This also means that only 9,754 kilometers away, the geeky siege will be happening in Deiningen, Bavaria.

We will observe and comment the events at Comic Con, introdoce new stuff to you and stay in touch with our Exclusive hunters over there in California.

Of course we will also have interesting guests at the S.P.A.C.E headquarter for these days and we will be live on air for you a couple of times, massive and interactive, with give-away promotions, nerd talks and lots more... So: stay tuned! More infos coming soon :-)

18.06.2019 • THE 2019 MTV MOVIE AWARS...

Has anyone of you spent last night in front of the TV, watching the MTV Movie & TV Awards? The big winner of the event was of course »Avengers: Endgame«. The MARVEL Bbockbuster was nominated four times and was awarded as Best Picture. No wonder, since it is in the fast lane since its theatrical release. Currently, it is in second place of the most successful movies of all times (based on the box office takings), just shortly behind James Cameron's »Avatar«, which it probably contest the crown of victory.

The best hero was Robert Downey Jr. awarded as Tony Stark. The prize for the best villain went to Thanos / Josh Brolin. Only the honor for the best fight was granted to another movie: the award went to Brie Larson vs. Gemma Chan in »Captain Marvel«. But okay, it stays in the family...

See all nominees and winners here:
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/2019_MTV_Movie_%26_TV_Awards

17.06.2019 • LOBO IN SERIES!

Everything is connected in the DC Universe. That goes for the comics and, of course, for the many TV series as well. So the intergalactic bounty hunter LOBO has an appearance in the second season of the Superman prequels »Krypton« in the episode »Light-Years from Home«. You can find a little appetizer in this trailer!

The beer and heavy metal loving space biker is played by the Irish actor Emmett J. Scanlan (The Fall). But there is better news for all fans of Bad Ass Lobo: Syfy has confirmed that Lobo will get his own TV series!

What do you think about the live-action Lobo? Incidentally, the Comic Lobo has a couple of extremely cool collectibles from Iron Studios, Prime 1 and Sideshow coming our way - just click HERE.
 

13.06.2019 • SHE'LL KEEP YOU SAFE

Did you already watch the trailer of »I am Mother«? We think that it really looks promising.

Hilary Swank is known for having a good hand in choosing her roles. And movies with robots are a must-see for us anyway. ;-) In the US and some European countries, you can already watch the film on NETFLIX - in Germany, it will be shown at the movie theaters first, starting August 22.

By the way, New Zealand's special effects magicians at Weta Workshop are responsible for the design of the Mother robot. Of course that gives us hope for a cool collectible from the movie. Mother would also make a fantastic action figure. That would be a cool project in 1/6 scale for Threezero, 1000 Toy or Pew Pew Gun.

12.06.2019 • 3 FROM HELL

After "House of 1000 Corpses" and "The Devil's Rejects" the Firefly family breaks into the third round after 16 years! Rob Zombie has just released a first trailer or teaser of 3 FROM HELL.

We don't know nothing about the content yet and the clip doesn't reveal much - only that the horror film will get a bleak R rating. So that basically means sadistic violence, drugs, nudity and explicit language - all that is expected from a Rob Zombie movie.

Due to its popularity, the manufacturer NECA made very cool collectibles in all sorts of formats for the first two films. So the prospects seem to be pretty good for new things of "3 from Hell" also. We look forward to Baby, Otis and Captain Spaulding - on the screen and (hopefully) as action figures :-)

11.06.2019 • BECOME A JEDI

Last weekend, the official trailer including in game material for the new EA Star Wars game STAR WARS JEDI: FALLEN ORDER was published. The game will be released November 15 for Xbox One, PS4 and PC.

We like the trailer very much, it looks like really cool Uncharted action. Also great that Saw Gerrera appears in the game - as we like to learn more about him since ROGUE ONE.

What only puzzles us, how sloppily the order 66 was executed back then. Because again, a young, gifted Padawan has survived the massacre and faces now the Empire. Let's hope that the developers at Respawn have more ideas for the story than to rehash the eternally old story. What do you think? On a scale of 1 to 10, how much are you looking forward to the game?

06.06.2019 • THE S.P.A.C.E TOP 5 AT THE MOVIES IN JUNE

The familiar summer slump at the movies is more and more noticeable again. There are less starts and you can only find some individual big franchises. We did again put together our personal Top 5 and almost everything from action with super powers, horror, a biopic, up to zombie comedy is represented. We want to mention one movie separately: cult director Peter Jackson made a documentary called »They Shall Not Grow Old« where he colored and converted in 3D historic recording images and sound of soldiers in the First World War. He really created a unique insight into this dark chapter of history - worth watching, but it will only be shown in cinemas sporadically.

Number 5:
MEN IN BLACK: INTERNATIONAL | release date: 13.06.2019

Number 4:
BRIGHTBURN | release date: 20.06.2019

Number 3:
TOLKIEN | release date: 20.06.2019

Number 2:
THE DEAD DON'T DIE | release date: 13.06.2019

Number 1:
DARK PHOENIX | release date: 06.06.2019
The trailers did only convince us to some extent, but we hope that 20th Century Fox managed to produce a worthy closing of the X-Men series. There should not be much to complain about the cast with Sophie Turner, James McAvoy, Michael Fassbender and a lot more - only Jennifer Lawrence looks like she's annoyed by the mutants... What Disney will do with the franchise, remains to be seen - next year, however, the NEW MUTANTS will arrive at the big screen first.

The S.P.A.C.E Crew wishes you good times at the movies!

04.06.2019 • THE POWER RETURNS

Sony has released the first "poster" of the new »Masters of the Universe« movie. It's arranged completely in gray (probably following Grayskull) and shows a slightly modernized logo and the words "THE POWER RETURNS - MARCH 2021" in the MOTU characteristic font. However, even if it's "only" a first teaser poster, we actually expected kind of a little more. Something that gives us more nostalgic feelings and anticipation of things in the future at the same time.

The He-Man protagonist is already found in Noah Centineo and he is also faced with divided opinions. Let's hope that the joint project of SONY and MATTEL will have some more to offer in the next 21 months...

03.06.2019 • PRODUCT OF THE MONTH JUNE 2019

Our Product of the Month June is really a massive chunk. It's nobody less than Jabba the Hutt, which Sideshow Collectibles is presenting us as 1/6 scale figure. The realization is based on his appearance in "Star Wars: Episode VI - Return of the Jedi". The notorious Jabba comes with his throne and many interchangable parts for various expressions and poses. Next to lots of throne decoration and Jabba's Shisha, the accessory includes Salacious Crumb, his nastily giggling mascot!

If you like to see the dimensions of this fantastic Star Wars character and you feel like enjoying a little tidbit, you should check out the unboxing video by Sideshow:

That really looks like THE talking piece for every 1/6 scale Star Wars collection and we can already immagine many scenes where our Star Wars heroes meet the stout villain. That means taking pictures until the SD card (and the hookah) are smoking.

Jabba will soon arrive here - right now we have a few copies left available.

30.05.2019 • MANGA-MANIA!

If you visit a comic con these days, the high percentage of manga / anime based cosplay will catch your eye. This reflects what other numbers prove: the share of mangas in the German comic market for instance is now 75%! The rest is shared by superheroes and Franco-Belgian comic books.

Yesterday, the sales numbers for the last half year of mangas in Japan were released. The number 1 in the charts is no surprise, because ONE PIECE led the list already in 2018.

Of course proper collectibles have long been indispensable in the world of mangas and animes. Brands like TSUME or TAMASHII NATIONS are totally focussing on that and also we at S.P.A.C.E are expanding our product range more and more, to be able to sweeten your hobby, dear fans and collectors of One Piece, Dragon Ball and Co. ;-)

28.05.2019 • DISNEY'S ALIEN

Alien is one of the great classics of sci-fi horror cinema and HR Giger's Xenomorph is the icon as a monster. Hard to believe, but Ridley Scott's masterpiece actually celebrates its 40th birthday. In those years we saw four alien movies and the prequels "Prometheus" and "Alien Covenant".

Meanwhile, Disney swallowed up Fox and gave a Go for a third prequel, directed by Ridley Scott. The working title is "Alien Awakening". Waking up at last would certainly do the franchise good. After pseudo-philosophical considerations, bad CGI effects, an outrageous incompetent spaceship crew and the most memorable flute solo of an android in film history, hopefully it will go uphill again with the series.

What is your opinion? Anticipation or rather mixed feelings?

27.05.2019 • HAPPY MOTU MONDAY!

Time for SNAKE MOUNTAIN is tickin’, dear MOTU fans! The first pre-order phase does only last four more days - so you better hurry, because all orders coming in by this Friday will normally be confrimed by us, with the pre-order price of 899,- EUR (incl. 19% VAT / plus 35,- EUR oversize shipping upcharge for most European countries).

You want to skip the waiting time and upgrade your ReAction Figure collection a bit? Then we have a small quantity of the 2019 Variable Variants Wave Set of 5 and the ReAction Slime Pit He-Man left in stock for immediate shipping!

Last but not least, we would like to point out the two Mythic Legions figures from the  FOUR HORSEMEN Studios - Soul Spiller Cowarros and Soul Spiller Malynna. They are a hommage to the »Masters Of The Universe« and we are so glad that these collectibles will be arriving soon in our headquarter.

24.05.2019 • THE STAR WARS COVER STORY

Once again, the journalists of VANITY FAIR were lucky enough to visit J.J. Abrams and the Cast and Crew on set. The current cover story on EPISODE IX trägt is titled »The Ultimate Preview« and it gives us - alone by the outstanding set photos by Annie Leibovitz - an exclusive first look on The Rise of Skywalker.

If you are a hardcore fan, then your hairs will lift up at the latest during the 74-second Behind the Scenes clip... ;-) We linked you the article here - enjoy!

23.05.2019 • THE DAY AFTER JUDGEMENT DAY

»Terminator: Dark Fate« including Arnie and Linda Hamilton will hit theaters on October 24th. Yesterday the first poster, just now the first trailer - they are really making us hungry now. :)

James Cameron participates the production of the movie and the director is nobody less than Tim Miller. The film directly connects to »Terminator 2: Judgement Day« which means that it ignores all other parts. This could get really rad and maybe Terminator fans could be finally propitiated - what do you think?

22.05.2019 • TARANTINO NO. 9

Exactly 25 years after Pulp Fiction, Quentin Tarantino's movie "Once Upon A Time In Hollywood" premiered at the Cannes Film Festival yesterday. For all who could not be part of the first visitors, there is at least a new trailer, which shortens the waiting time until August 15th (in Germany) a bit.

The press reactions to the premiere were mixed. Here and there is talk of a "masterpiece" - Spiegel Online writes "... his tale about the Manson murders with Brad Pitt and Leonardo DiCaprio is great, meaningless fun." and Welt.de headlines "So disappointing is Tarantino's ninth film"

The new trailer definitely makes us hungry for the movie. A visit of Hollywood in 1969 with Mr. Tarantino as tour guide on this journey through time... that promises to become very entertaining. A visit to the cinema is an absolute no-brainer for us.

What are your expectations for Tarantino's Number Nine?

21.05.2019 • GOTBYE

This is the End.

Now it's truly over. The Game of Thrones is settled. The HBO series accompanied us for more than eight years. We cheered, mourned many deaths, loved so many of the characters that we met in the Seven Kingdoms - from the freezing cold beyond the walls to the sun-drenched Dorne. And all the characters that we loved to hate...

The scenic level of GoT has definitely written TV history. With so much emotion, it is not surprising that many fans got carried away, because they were dissatisfied with the last evolutions of the series. The peak was a completely ridiculous petition where they called for the final season being redone. It was signed one million times - absurd. Welcome to the wonderful world of the internet. Surely, there are some dramaturgic decisions that can be criticized. Also some things were maybe treated too quick, but if we look back, most of the evolutions were consequent.

We say thank you to George RR Martin, HBO, D&D, the fantastic cast and the legion of creatives behind the camera. Thanks for A Song of Ice and Fire and the Game of Thrones!
 

20.05.2019 • GOTHAM'S NEW HOPE

Is this really the superheroine that we have all been waiting for? Kate Kane alias BATWOMAN did already have appearances in »Arrow« and »The Flash«. The heroine, embodied by the Australian actress Ruby Rose, will get her own series this fall. Here you can find the trailer.
What is your impression? Are you looking forward to the series or are you rather deterred by the trailer?

Either way, Ruby Rose is definitely an eye-catcher. You can find a beautiful 1/6 scale head sculpt of her online - like Batwoman with short hairstyle, whereby her appearance as Stella Carlin in »Orange Is The New Black« was the model for that.

15.05.2019 • GOLDEN PALMS ON THE CÔTE D'AZUR

Yesterday, the 72nd FESTIVAL DE CANNES was ceremoniously opened. The International Film Festival is probably the most important movie festival in the world and many great films celebrate their premiere on the Côte d'Azur every year.

As this year's opening movie, the zombie comedy »The Dead Don't Die« by Jim Jarmusch was presented - the stars around Bill Murray, Adam Driver, Tilda Swinton, Selena Gomez & co. where on site in person of course.

The mega event will continue until May 25th and we will also get to know who will win the Golden Palm on that day. About 20 movies are competing for the popular award this year. Quentin Tarantino's »Once Upon a Time in Hollywood« is a hot candidate - exactly 25 years after »Pulp Fiction«, this would be a nice story, right? ;-)

14.05.2019 • THE X-MEN WILL FALL

FOX has chosen yesterday's date 05/13 as X-MEN DAY. The reason for that is probably the final part of X-Men that is produced by 20th Century Fox: DARK PHOENIX. It will hit theaters on June 6th and likely marks the end of the mutant force after Fox's takeover by Disney.

There were two featurettes for the honor day, »The X-Men Legacy« and »Marvel Icons: Chris Claremont & Louise Simonson«. There was also released another new trailer of DARK PHOENIX, which plays with flashbacks as well and it completely concentrates on Jean Grey.

The 10th part of the X-Men universe could become another big success at the box office - but will it be able to have such a big impact that Disney will continue the serious...? Rather not.

13.05.2019 • THE END IS NEAR!

Today the penultimate episode of Game of Thrones will be broadcasted. Who will live? Who will die? And who will sit on the iron throne? A question that's concerning us fans worldwide. Are you all in the Game of Thrones fever as well? What do you think about the final season? Some things are a bit quick or even too quick...

HBO is also working on spin-offs for the series. So we can stay a little longer in the world of Westeros.

Oh dear George RR Martin, do you still need much time for the Winds of Winter? We are all looking forward to read your version of the Westeros story.

Even though the night is dark and full of terrors, that does not apply to our collector's universe of a Song of Ice and Fire. Our friend Mick went behind the wall and checked out the White Walker by Threezero in a detailed review on Action Figure District.

Valar Morghulis!

09.05.2019 • THE S.P.A.C.E TOP 5 AT THE MOVIES IN MAY

The so called Merry Month is not really satisfying us with spring-like weather yet - so it is very appropriate that lots of great new movies are starting in May! In the following, we put together our personal Top 5 for you.

Number 5:
ALADDIN | release date: 23.05.2019

Number 4:
STAN & OLLIE | release date: 09.05.2019

Number 3:
GODZILLA II: KING OF THE MONSTERS | release date: 30.05.2019

Number 2:
JOHN WICK: CHAPTER 3 - PARABELLUM | release date: 23.05.2019

Number 1:
POKÉMON DETECTIVE PIKACHU | release date: 09.05.2019
Teenager and former Pokémon trainer Tim Goodman wants to find his missing father. His dad is a detective and he's got his own Pokémon: Pikachu. It's able to communicate with Tim and it follows him to Ryme City, where people live together with Pokémons, where they are searching his father. The movie definitely thrives from Pikachu or rather Ryan Reynolds, who gives him his voice and - thanks to motion capture - his own facial expression. The video game adaption would have probably become even more like Deadpool when it comes to rough sayings, but the movie shall be family-friendly and reached a soft PG rating. Maybe there will be a R rated version in the future - Ryan Reynolds did already signal that there are at least many many outtakes that are not suitable for kids' ears :)

The S.P.A.C.E Crew wishes you good times at the movies!

07.05.2019 • NOT JUST ANOTHER SEQUEL...

There will be a reboot of the cult horror movie HELLRAISER! David S. Goyer will be in charge for the script and the production. He already worked as writer for Nolan's »The Dark Knight« trilogy and he was also under discussion for the upcoming »Masters Of The Universe« film - the screenplay was too epic or let's say too expensive in Sony's eyes though. :)

The production studio Spyglass says that Pinhead and Co. will definitely be dark and thrilling. So let's hope that it won't be just another bog-standard reboot with softened horror scenes, but qualitatively on a completely different level than the last of the 9 sequel movies...

06.05.2019 • THE END OF YOUTUBE PREMIUM?

Google has just announced that later this year, YouTube Originals - which are the in house productions that were only available within the Premium subscription so far - will be also provided for users of the free YT version.

Restrictions at this are commercial breaks and the availability for a limited period of time though. Between August 29th and September 11th, for example, the first season of COBRA KAI will be enabled to be streamed by everybody. Following that, there will be released an episode of season 2 every week. By the way: a third season of the Karate-Kid sequel series is already planned and supposed to be released in 2020.

If this will be the end of YouTube Premium? The paid option remains for now, but it has a significantly lower added value, in our opinion...

02.05.2019 • PRODUCT OF THE MONTH MAY 2019

In merry month of May, we chose a very special collectible as our new PRODUCT OF THE MONTH: the FAUN from Guillermo del Toro's »Pan's Labyrinth« by NECA!

The main character of the fantasy adventure comes with amazing details like two satchels, a dagger and a bone flute - all worked out extremely detailed, like we are accustomed by NECA.

Pale Man from NECA's »Guillermo del Toro Signature Collection« is in stock for some time already and also Ofelia will be soon on her way to us.

You can even find Guillermo del Toro himself (at least as 7" Figural Doll) on our website - the figure is a SDCC 2018 Exclusive and strictly limited!

01.05.2019 • SONIC THE HEDGEHOG

Yesterday, »Paramount Pictures« dropped the first trailer on their videogame conversion of the SEGA icon SONIC THE HEDGEHOG!

https://youtu.be/FvvZaBf9QQI

Basically, the clip is done well, especially the little details (right from the start during the intro) are very geeky and funny. But do you also feel reminded to »Detective Pikachu« somehow? Jim Carrey as evil Dr. Robotnik will surely benefit the movie - already with his even more evil mustache. But we will have to wait and see if the blue hedgehog will be able to win the race against the yellow beloved Pokémon. On top of that, Sonic will somehow compete with STAR WARS at the box office towards the end of the year. Hmm... this could actually go pear-shaped.

30.04.2019 • ENDGAME CRUSHES THE BOX OFFICE!

After not even one week, AVENGERS: ENDGAME already scored ground-breaking records at the box offices! The MARVEL blockbuster is the movie with the most successful starting weekend of all time, both measured within the US and also on the worldwide ticket sales. Of course this is also due to the fact that the film started at the same time also in China, but let's be true - nobody did expect something else, did we? We feel very happy for all superheroes and especially the Russo Brothers!

So if you are now looking for some cool inspirations or appetizers for your Avengers collection, we highly recommend you this cool video by HOT TOYS. There you can get a glimpse from the current special exhibition at the Lee Gardens shopping center in Hong Kong (by the way with a inconspicuous, only 4.5 meters high Iron Man as bouncer in front of the mall).

Also take a look at our pre-order section - we just put up three 1:1 replicas from Hasbro out of their »Marvel Legends« series :-)

26.04.2019 • THE STRIDER

Although basically everything is focussing on the superheroes of the Marvel Universe this time around, it's still worth taking a look towards offside the roads! It was teasered already about six weeks ago - now, the breathtaking, strictly limited ARAGORN AT AMON HEN statue by WETA is finally up for pre-order :-)

Again we are absolutely astonished by the magical conversion which the artist-team from New Zealand has put in 1:6 scale. It is clearly visible on the first sight how much passion and heart stays behind this project. But please check out Weta's three-and-a-half minute long »Crafting Aragorn at Amon Hen« video - simply great!

Since this collectible will be released with an edition size of 400 pieces only, we highly recommend everybody who wants to secure the Strider for his collection to give us your pre-order today. We assume that we will set this piece's status to "Wait-List" already early next week...

24.04.2019 • ENDGAME!

Today's the day - today, the AVENGERS take off for their maybe last fight against Thanos... in the final battle... in the ENDGAME!

Of course almost everybody out there is as thrilled as we are, about what to expect from the ultimate MARVEL summit. Because whatever fan's theory or speculation about the story will come true - one thing is for sure: it's gonna be epic!

As a matter of fact, Kevin Feige just recently spread the news that not »Avengers: Endgame« but the upcoming »Spider-Man: Far From Home« will mark the end of phase 3 of the MCU. We will see on 4h July when Spidey will return to cinemas.

However - let's head into the over 3-hours-long endgame of the Avengers today. And you surely know: whatever it takes... but #DontSpoilTheEndgame ;-)

23.04.2019 • IMAGINE TARGARYENS - NIGHT KING VISIONS

Stephen Lear - online better known as "WhyTheLongPlayFace" - simply is a cool dude. After letting out his creativity a short while ago by redesigning legendary album covers in STAR WARS style, he now made room for his passion for GAME OF THRONES!

A couple of days ago, the nerdy digital artist from England uploaded a bunch of re-designed covers to his Facebook page under the motto »Game of Thrones Album Cover Comparisons«. A real eye candy for every GoT fan and our web-find of the week :-)

17.04.2019 • IT'S THE FINAL COUNTDOWN

Less than 7 days until the Endgame! And MARVEL really knows how to increase the anticipation of AVENGERS 4 into the infinite. The trailers do not contain any concrete information about the plot of the three-hour mega blockbuster, but they are spreading incredible goosebump feeling. For the presumably last teaser, they just thought hey, why not doing a journey through 22 (twentytwo!) movies of the MCU? Hype²²!

The Russo brothers did even write a public letter to the fans, where they ask to keep everything you watched in Avengers 4 private, as soon as you watch the movie the next weeks. So: beware of spoilers because there is already some leaked footage that is buzzing through the web! #DontSpoilTheEndgame

16.04.2019 • SWCC 2019 ROUND-UP

The STAR WARS CELEBRATION is now behind us - and almost all expectations have been fulfilled! The goosebumps from the EPISODE IX trailer, which was released on Friday, slowly fades away. And the child has a name now: THE RISE OF SKYWALKER. What's exactly behind that, remains to be seen. However, it was confirmed that after Episode IX the work on new Star Wars films will rest for some time - very likely even for several years. They want to concentrate more on series projects like THE MANDALORIAN. And, speaking of that, we have the next highlight.

A first trailer and some film footage of THE MANDALORIAN was only shown to the audience in Chicago. You can find secretly recorded clips on the web and we expect the official trailer to be uploaded soon, too. Some pictures and the logo have already been released. The first live-action series from the SW universe looks like it has to offer a large portion of Italo-Western style - but it looks awesome! The series with protagonist Pedro Pascal will be launched as flagship on Disney+ plus in November.

For all gamers, the trailer of the next Star Wars game - JEDI: FALLEN ORDER - was surely a highlight. Also this visual tidbit can be found online already.

15.04.2019 • WINTERFELL

The waiting is finally over! Then again, you can feel the melancholy that it's the last waiting... Of course, we are talking about the start of the 8th and final season of the mother of all series, GAME OF THRONES!

Hardcore fans probably had a short night here, because they watched the premiere of the episode WINTERFELL at 3 AM in the morning right away. We won't do any spoiling here, surely, but the first episode just starts with the... just kidding ;)

In Germany, you need a SKY subscription to benefit from binging the recent episodes. But then you have the possibility to take part during the night from Sunday to Monday in English AND German language. Each episode will also be repeated on Monday 20:15 and is available on demand.

Season 8 contains six episodes. The grand final - the episode will take about 80 minutes! - will be broadcasted on May 19th and we are going to find out who will make it to the Iron Throne :)

FOR THE THRONE!

11.04.2019 • STAR WARS CELEBRATION 2019

Today starts the STAR WARS CELEBRATION in Chicago, which takes place every year - the world's largest fan event around a galaxy far, far away. The essential topic will of course be Episode IX that is going to hit the movies on December 19th this year. It looks like if tomorrow the very first trailer will be awaiting us and at the same time, the official film title should also be revealed. Of course, we keep our eyes and ears open to inform you about hot news.

There was already a little teaser up front, even though it is "only" the logo of the upcoming EA game »Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order«. The game will be presented in detail on Saturday :)

10.04.2019 • NETFLIX AT THE THEATERS

Apparently, the streaming giant NETFLIX intends to purchase the traditional »Grauman's Egyptian Theatre« in Hollywood. We don't expect Netflix to build up their own cinema franchise or something like that - it seems as if a possible purchase of the building, which was opened in 1922, would be an one-off action.

If the company with the big red "N" plans to hold premiers of their own movies there or what they are expecting exactly, is still unclear. First, it remains to be seen if the owner (American Cinematheque) will even sell »The Egyptian«...

09.04.2019 • AKIRA OF FLESH AND BLOOD

There will be a live-action filming of the cult manga AKIRA! It is based on the original manga by Katsuhiro Otomo, not on the anime movie from 1988. After Warner Bros. acquired the screen rights more than ten years ago, it is now certain that they caught Leonardo DiCaprio as producer and Taika Waititi (Thor: Ragnarok) as director.

In addition, they received an $18.5 million tax credit by the »California Film Commission«. Also because of that, the shooting - which is supposed to start in 2019 - will only take place in California.

What do you think, will this be a flop like »Ghost in the Shell« or will Waititi be able to make a success out of it?

08.04.2019 • HAPPY MOTU MONDAY!

Dear MOTU fans and collectors, today you will get your money`s worth! As we already announced, you can pre-order the 2019 POWER-CON EXCLUSIVES now. We don´t have an exact arrival date for those exclusives yet but we do our best to get them as fast as we can. The quantities we will get are strictly limited, so we recommend to order them as soon as possible.

Furthermore we listed the new MOTU VINTAGE WAVE and the JAPANESE PACKAGING versions of Skeletor and He-Man. You also can pre-order those figures now.

Within the next 2-3 days, some other highlights from Eternia will arrive: the SHE-RA & CATRA bundle from the Netflix series and two MEGA CONSTRUX sets - the WIND RAIDER ATTACK and the BATTLE FOR ETERNIA 5-Pack.

BY THE POWER OF GRAYSKULL!

04.04.2019 • THE S.P.A.C.E TOP 5 AT THE MOVIES IN APRIL

Fans of superhero action as well as of the horror genre truly get their money's worth in the cinema month April. We arranged our TOP 5 for us - whereat the order was very hard to define this time. Only the frist place was pretty obvious... ;)

Number 5:
THE CURSE OF LA LLORONA | release date: 18.04.2019

Number 4:
HELLBOY | release date: 11.04.2019

Number 3:
SHAZAM! | release date: 04.04.2019

Number 2:
PET SEMATARY | release date: 04.04.2019

Number 1:
AVENGERS: ENDGAME | release date: 24.04.2019
Did we already mention that we are hyped for the 4th part of the Avengers? Earlier this week, Marvel served us a one-minute clip as an appetizer again. You can find the link above. The Russo brothers' opus is supposed to be three hours long - an epic, unprecedented battle is lying ahead of us!

The S.P.A.C.E Crew wishes you good times at the movies!

02.04.2019 • ONE TRAILER AFTER ANOTHER

We are virtually getting overwhelmed with new trailers today :)

The first preview of Jim Jarmusch's new film did astound us. The horror comedy »The Dead Don't Die« with Bill Murray, Adam Driver and lots of other familiar faces comes in a »Zombieland« stlye and it will hit the US theaters on June 14th. There is no date for Germany yet.

Just before the cinema start this week, there is now also a final trailer of »Pet Sematary«. And it's the scariest one by far!

Furthermore, two new teasers of the last season of »Game Of Thrones« were released (Together / Survival). Now it's just less than two weeks until it kicks off - the countdown is on!

01.04.2019 • PRODUCT OF THE MONTH APRIL 2019

We chose something really special as our Product of the Month in April. The Japanese manufacturer High Dream (HL PRO) made a wish of every 80's fan come true - they brought to market the very first true to original diecast model of CAPTAIN FUTURE's COMET.

The spaceship from the cult anime series is especially convincing due to its exchangeable antennas and the rocket launchers. Who's not re-discovering the child in himself here... ;-)

Unfortunately, the first shipment is completely out of stock already, but in a few weeks, further copies will land at our headquarter. It's definitely worth waiting!

28.03.2019 • AVENGE THE FALLEN

We are just about four weeks away from the biggest super hero epic of all time - AVENGERS: ENDGAME. There have now been released 32 posters of each character, 16 in color and 16 in black and white. Above all faces are the words »AVENGE THE FALLEN«. So Marvel gives us an overview of all super heroes that are - status quo - still alive or have been just flicked out by Thanos. The only "secret", which was in our opinion disclosed with the posters, is SHURI's passing.

It remains to be seen though, who we are going to see again on April 24th (the cinema start was moved up one day in Germany!). We are just hyped so badly for Avengers 4... how about you? :)

26.03.2019 • AND NOW ALSO APPLE...

The next streaming service is in the starting blocks... yesterday, APPLE presented »Apple TV+«, which they will put the fear into competitors around Netflix and Amazon Prime Video with. For their in-house produced movies and series, they took on board big names right away: Steven Spielberg, J.J.Abrams, Oprah Winfrey, Reese Witherspoon - just to name some.

The video platform will be launched this fall. Mainly on the devices of the Californian company, but there will also be an integration on the latest smart TVs. We still don't know anything about pricing over here.

It's about to get quire confusing in the streaming landscape, since also Disney is going to enter the ring soon. But especially with their in-house productions - Netflix shows it impressively - the providers are real alternatives to the long-established film studios and you almost can't get around a subscription, or rather three to five...

25.03.2019 • STAR WARS CELEBRATION 2019

In about two weeks, more precisely from 11th until 15th of April, all STAR WARS fans will get their money's worth! Since the STAR WARS CELEBRATION - the world's biggest event of the galaxy far, far away - will take place in Chicago.

We are expecting not only news and trailers of Episode IX, but especially of the real series »The Mandalorian« which is currently in the making. The producer Jon Favreau just posted a picture on which we can see Taika Waititi giving voice to the legendary bounty droid IG-88. If this role will get a similar humor like we got to know it from Waititi in THOR 3, remains to be seen.

Will you also excitingly follow the SWC online or in the live streams - or will somebody even be there?

20.03.2019 • DISNEY TAKES OVER FOX

Another step into a monopolistic film landscape. A big step. Because the day has come - Disney completes the acquisition of 21st Century Fox with an unimaginable sum of 71 billion dollars. The record breaking deal was already resolved at the end of 2017 and today, the official takeover occured.

What this means to movie fans, remains to be seen. What is going to happen with the X-Men, what about Avatar and how are the remaining Hollywood studios going to react? Disney was and still is magic and nostalgia - but Disney is also a powerful major company, whether you like it or not.

What do you think about this deal and what development are you expecting?

19.03.2019 • 40 YEARS OF ALIEN

In 1979, the first ALIEN movie was released - that was 40 years ago, unbelievable! 20th Century Fox came up with something great for the ALIEN franchise's anniversary:

In cooperation with the creative community »Tongal«, fans from all around the world had the chance to submit their own, ALIEN inspired, short films. They've chosen and professionally produced six out of more than 550 proposals. The result will be shown weekly on IGN from March 29th on and from May 5th, it will be published on the »Alien Anthology« social media channels - including behind-the-scenes material!

You can already find a teaser of the shorts (»Alone«, »Containment«, »Harvest«, »Night Shift«, »Ore« and »Specimen«) here.
 

18.03.2019 • BACK AND FORTH

180 degree turn from Disney - James Gunn is now reinstated as director of GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY VOL. 3! After he was fired in summer due to controversial, some year old tweets, he is now back on board. Surely, not a bad decision!

Because of his contracts, he will first take action at the DCEU though and finish the SUICIDE SQUAD sequel, to then step into the MCU again. We think that he will be able to manage the balance between Marvel and DC without a doubt ;-)

14.03.2019 • WHATEVER IT TAKES...

TRAILER ALERT! We didn't see that coming... one week after the cinema start of »Captain Marvel«, a new trailer of AVENGERS: ENDGAME came online just now! And what can we say... preferably nothing, just watch it!

The flashbacks, the new suits, the score... Epic! Goosebumps are guaranteed! And now we still have to wait until April 25th... argh!

There's also a new poster on top :-)

13.03.2019 • STEPHEN KING, NEXT ONE PLEASE

Already some years ago, Steven Spielberg snapped up the rights on Stephen Kings novel »The Talisman«. He just found a proper director for a screen adaption: Mike Barker, who already directed »The Handmaid's Tale«.

After »Pet Sematary«, which will hit theaters in three weeks, and »IT 2« with start in September, the next filming of a Stephen King novel is in the starting blocks. Err... by the way - where the hell is the first teaser of the second part of IT?! It's about time, right?

12.03.2019 • GUNN & ELBA

If somebody missed it: James Gunn, who was shown the door by Marvel/Disney as director of »Guardians Of The Galaxy«, picked up the (direction) torch to the SUICIDE SQUAD sequel. The movie about the DCEU rogues is supposed to hit theaters in summer 2021 - in a significantly different line-up than part 1 though.

It's actually confirmed that Deadshot will no longer be embodied by Will Smith but by »Luther« actor Idris Elba. However, Smith was not "fired", they just agreed on this step due to timing issues. The second part could benefit from Elba, what do you think?

Which other changes will be made in the cast, is still unknown. There is speculation about new characters like Peacemaker, Polka-Dot Man, Ratcatcher and King Shark.

07.03.2019 • THE S.P.A.C.E TOP 5 AT THE MOVIES IN MARCH

March is brimful of great, varied new starts at the theaters across all genres! We gathered up our personal Top 5 as always, which was anything but easy though. There are even more movies that didn't make it to our ranking list like e.g. »White Boy Rick«, the Western movie »The Sisters Brothers«, »Mid90s« by Jonah Hill, the freaky comedy »Beach Bum« or the second part of the trash spectacle »Iron Sky«. Who has the time for it, could even book a season ticket for march straight away ;-)

Number 5:
IF BEALE STREET COULD TALK | release date: 07.03.2019

Number 4:
DUMBO | release date: 28.03.2019

Number 3:
US | release date: 21.03.2019

Number 2:
WELCOME TO MARWEN | release date: 28.03.2019

Number 1:
CAPTAIN MARVEL | release date: 07.03.2019
We actually don't need to say much about CAPTAIN MARVEL. We are looking forward to the movie, even though first critics are very mixed. But we think, the way that Brie Larsson - only based on the trailer - was pulled to pieces, is completely exaggerated. In our opinion, it's very questionable to judge her emotionless attitude upfront, without knowing about a possible evolution within the movie. We are just curious now, what the forerunner of Avengers 4 will have to offer. Tell us your opinion as soon as you watched it!

The S.P.A.C.E Crew wishes you good times at the movies!

05.03.2019 • JUST SAY THE WORD

The second trailer of the upcoming comic adaption SHAZAM! is here! Just like the first one, in our opinion, this one is also extremely funny.

SHAZAM! is maybe more of an "underdog DC film", which many fans of the DCEU may not really have on their radar. We are also not quite sure if the movie with Zachary Levi in the main role will be so succesful... but however, it will surely be refreshingly amusing.

Cinema release will already be in about a month from now, more precise on April 4th.

04.03.2019 • MOTU MONDAY: WILLIAM STOUT COLLECTION & CONAN

HAPPY MOTU MONDAY! About two weeks ago they were announced at New York Toy Fair - now they're listed for pre-order at our website: the MASTERS OF THE UNIVERSE »William Stout Collection« of the MOTU Classics line by SUPER7!

32 years after their cinema appearance, Super7 really managed to roll out these figures, based on the original designer's drafts, sculpted by the Four Horsemen! You are able to pre-order the main characters He-Man, Skeletor, Karg and the Hyper Skeletor (better known as "God Skeletor") separately as well as a set of 4, on our website from now on. The figures will probably be shipped in late summer this year.

We are now fuelling hopes for a second wave, maybe with Man-at-Arms, Evil-Lyn, Teela, the Sorceress or Detective Lubic...? Also Centurions and Troopers as dual pack for army building would be perfect ;-)

Besides this new, highly anticipated MOTU wave, Super7 has just released the Deluxe Conan for pre-order. The flagship Barbarian fits perfectly to your MOTU Classics figures regarding style and scale - we recommend that you purchase also straight away.

Back to Eternia - and to this year's MOTU Power-Con Exclusives:
Like already communicated, we will accept pre-orders from 8th of April on. We can give away the (anticipated) prices of the figures in advance:
The Slamurai & Snake Troopers 3-Pack will probably cost 259,- EUR. The Horde Zombie He-Man will be at 89,99 EUR and the Starburst She-Ra Doll at 79,99 EUR. However this is still to be understood as pending - but so you already have a rough price range of the Exclusives.

WE BELIEVE IN PASSION, HARD WORK AND THE POWER OF GRAYSKULL.

01.03.2019 • PRODUCT OF THE MONTH MARCH 2019

Today is the 1st of March - meteorological beginning of spring. It's slowly getting green... Also at S.P.A.C.E it's getting green in March - namely with our new Product of the Month.

This time, we chose a figure from the popular S.H.Figuarts series by Tamashii Nations for the first time. The Incredible - and entirely green - HULK from »Avengers: Infinity War« is our highlight in March!

Bruce Banner's Alter Ego is an action figure that turned out so well and definitely deserves its name. Due to the three interchangable heads and his great flexibility, you can stage Hulk in countless poses.

If you're not into the Tamashii Nations line yet, we highly recommend the detailed video review by our mate Dennis (Twitter / Instagram). He precisely examined Hulk and, on this occasion, took us some cool pictures ;-)

28.02.2019 • DARK PHOENI(X)

Right, there was something... DARK PHOENIX almost fell in oblivion here. Actually, the - probably last - X-Men film should have hit theaters already in February. But meanwhile the starting date was relocated to June 6th. If you watch the new, second trailer, it looks like if this decision was good for the movie.

In our opinion, this trailer is much better than the first one!

27.02.2019 • PIKA PIKA

Ryan Reynolds is just such a cool guy! Not only that he - like you would expect it from a first class actor - completely merges into the embodied character... no, he controls his social networks and their marketing tactics so incredibly well. Two days ago, he released an extremely funny clip to his role as DETECTIVE PIKACHU on his YouTube channel where he provided "insight" into his family life together with his wife.

Appropriately, the new, very action-packed second trailer of the Pokémon blockbuster was put online yesterday. We are so hyped for this movie! How about you? :)

And as luck would have it, an awesome shipment of Pokémon LED lamps arrived at our warehouse, which every fan of Pikachu and co. should definitely have a look at!
 

21.02.2019 • A STAR WA(R)S BORN

In our opinion, the musical film A STAR IS BORN was definitely on of last year's top movies. Bradley Cooper has not only once again demonstrated his acting talent but also for the first time his cinematic skills behind the camera. Let's see if this will be honored accordingly on sunday when the Academy Awards will be awarded.

A find that we discovered on the web this week fits perfectly to the DVD and Blu-ray release of A STAR IS BORN today:

NERDIST produced a magnificent parody of the title song »Shallow« produziert in which they replaced Bradley Cooper and Lady Gaga with Kylo Ren and Rey. The thing is called »A Star Wars Is Born« and you really have to say that the singing of both the protagonists is great! It's also just so funny how Kylo passionately smashes a ballad with his guitar on stage :-)

You should definitely check out the video!

19.02.2019 • NEW YORK TOY FAIR 2019

It's just amazing what this year's NEW YORK TOY FAIR had to offer for us collectors! Numerous manufacturers and licensees from our range were represented with a booth at the Javits Center in Manhattan and they ensured grinning faces of the visitors with extremely cool novelties.

18.02.2019 • MOTU MONDAY: POWER-CON 2019 EXCLUSIVES

Heads up, der Masters of the Universe fans! Today's Monday is again totally in the sign of Eternia :-)
On the occasion of New York Toy Fair last weekend, there were not only awesome news by SUPER7 (more about that tomorrow...). Val Staples, chief operator of »Power-Con«, was finally able to reveal this year's exclusives yesterday:

Slamurai & Snake Troopers 3-Pack Power-Con 2019 Exclusive (MOTU Classics)

Horde Zombie He-Man Power-Con 2019 Exclusive (MOTU Classics)

In collaboration with the »Die Welt der Meister« magazine, we will be able to offer you - as single partner of Power-Con for Europe - this year's exclusives in a pre-sale! On Monday. 8th Apri, the pre-order phase will be kicking off on our website - so you should note this date with a fat marker in your calendar. We are so glad about this honor of Grayskull. As soon as we are able to release further details about pricing or avaiable quantities, you will get an update from us in our news...

14.02.2019 • THE S.P.A.C.E TOP 5 AT THE MOVIES IN FEBRUARY

February has to offer a colorful mixture at the theaters. From animation to horror movie, from drama to science fiction - there is something for almost every taste. We've put together our personal top 5 hit list in the following. Tell us what you are going to watch and what you think won't be worth it!

Number 5:
HAPPY DEATHDAY 2U | release date: 14.02.2019

Number 4:
COLD PURSUIT | release date: 28.02.2019

Number 3:
HOW TO TRAIN YOUR DRAGON: THE HIDDEN WORLD | release date: 07.02.2019

Number 2:
VICE | release date: 21.02.2019

Number 1:
ALITA: BATTLE ANGEL | release date: 14.02.2019

James Cameron intended to do this manga film adaption already a long time ago, but big projects like AVATAR did always intervene in his plans. Now he brings the movie to the big screen with the help of Robert Rodriguez and a budget of 200 million dollars, whereby Cameron only did the screenplay and handed over the direction to Rodriguez. It's a pity, because Cameron himself probably would have made an even more epic movie out of it...
When it comes to the actors, Rosa Salazar (as Alita) and also Mahershala Ali are convincing - Christoph Waltz as Dr. Ido is strong but not always that brilliant as he's actually able to act. He it is who finds a cyborg with a female human brain in the 26th century and brings it back to "life".
All the cyberpunk world around Iron City is technically implemented in an incredible way and can visually take maximum profit in 3D - a kind of 3D how James Cameron would expect it. If the story has some flaws, the look will be definitely able to offset!

The S.P.A.C.E Crew wishes you good times at the movies!

13.02.2019 • EVERYBODY WILL BE KUNG FU FIGHTING

»Kung Fu Hustle«, the comedic tribute to all martial arts film classics of the 1970s, celebrates its 15th anniversary this year. Now, it's confirmed that there will truly be a sequel!

Stephen Chow, who directed part 1 and played the main role at the same time, will also be directing the shooting of KUNG FU HUSTLE 2. If he will again be active as an actor is not clear so far. Also, the movie will take place in the present and will therefore not be a direct sequel.

Before the start of the shooting, Chow will finish »The Mermaid 2« first. How did you like »Kung Fu Hustle« then and do you think that this sequel makes sense?

11.02.2019 • BACK TO THE 90S...

BACK TO THE 90S...

Like we already promised in our Newsletter last friday, we listed the both versions of the brand new 1/6 scale Captain Marvel by HOT TOYS for pre-order on our website. The pictures speak for themselves... Especially the details of the Deluxe Version are amazing - the collectible awakes your desire for the movie nearly more than the other way round ;-)

MARVEL itself came up with a funny campaign for Captain Marvel: the official website of the movie was done in a style of the WWW from the 90s. A guestbook, GIFs, jarring - no, terrible color combinations and Comic Sans send their regards. It's definitely worth a click - wake up your memories :-)

06.02.2019 • OASITH & THE NOTORIOUS BB8

Today, we have a really nice find that we discovered on the web - namely by the London digital artist and Star Wars fan Stephen Lear (WhyTheLongPlayFace). The nerdy designer with an "unhealthy obsession with Movies, Music and Photoshop", as he describes himself, did a mash-up of a number of album covers including Star Wars characters everywhere.

You can gaze at what comes out with so much creativity here.

The ideas and realizations are absolutely fabulous - we like it ;-)

05.02.2019 • YEAR OF THE PIG

Happy Chinese New Year! It's already February here, but for our friends in Asia the new year only starts today - the year of the pig.

Disney came up with something really nice - specifically for CNY, they created alternative posters of all blockbusters that come out in 2019, in a simple Chinese drawing style. We think this is a neat idea!

Even if each title is only written in Chinese, it shouldn't be a problem to correctly assign the movies.

1. Avengers: Endgame
2. Captain Marvel
3. Dumbo
4. Aladdin
5. Frozen 2
6. The Lion King

04.02.2019 • SUPER BOWL LIII

If there's somebody amongst you who hasn't noticed it: last night, the 53. SUPER BOWL took place in Atlanta. The biggest sports event of the world not only produces a media hype because of the sport but especially due to the sideshow.
Even if the halftime show with Maroon 5 (and Spongebob!) could not keep up with the past years, the TV spots had a lot to offer though. Especially the both 30-second clips of »Avengers 4« and »Captain Marvel« caused goosebump moments. Here you can find a list with all trailers and teasers:

Avengers: Endgame

Captain Marvel

Alita: Battle Angel

Toy Story 4

Hobbs & Shaw

Us

Wonder Park

Scary Stories to Tell in the Dark

The Handmaid's Tale

The Twilight Zone

Our Planet

And the "most important" thing: congratulations to the New England Patriots for the 6th Super Bowl triumph! They decided the game against the Los Angeles Rams with 13:3.
 

01.02.2019 • PRODUCT OF THE MONTH FEBRUARY 2019

For our new product of the month we time traveled back into the 1930s. No surprise that it's getting black-and-white now.

The small but superfine italian studio INFINITE STATUE has some figures like Charlie Chaplin, Harold Lloyd or Groucho Marx in its »Old & Rare« series. The latest release is a wonderful homage to probably the most famous comedian duo in film history - Stan Laurel and Oliver Hardy. Laurel & Hardy.

The statue called »Another Nice Mess« - inspired by the popular quote "Well, here's another nice mess you've gotten me into!" - is limited to 400 pieces and it's now in stock. At least for the moment...!

31.01.2019 • NUREMBERG TOY FAIR 2019

Yesterday - as every year - the visit to the NUREMBERG TOY FAIR was on our schedule. A part of the crew hit the road to the 85 km away "metropolis of Franconia" early in the morning to get access to the exhibition halls at 9 o'clock on the dot :-)

Our highlight were the exhibits by the Brasilian manufacturer »Iron Studios«. We were impressed and happy that a lot has happened at the brand regarding details and especially face sculpts. Particularly the actors' faces, like e.g. of the 1/10 Black Widow Statue from »Infinitiy War«, are a lot better then the first statues from like two years ago. That's a great development and it makes us hungry for more to come!

To get an insight, just check out the snapshots we took - either in our Facebook album or at our Instagram story highlights.

29.01.2019 • SEE YOU SOON

It looks like if the shooting of the HARLEY QUINN movie are in full progress. Margot Robbie posted a photo of herself wearing an extremely funky 80s disco outfit. Furthermore, a first mini teaser called "See You Soon" was released, in which you can also see Ewan McGregor and co. for a split second.

The clip only takes as long as you need for the proper pronunciation of the film title »Birds Of Prey (And The Fantabulous Emancipation Of One Harley Quinn)«. ;-)

Theatrical release for the »Suicide Squad« spin-off will be February 7th 2020. So in quite exactly one year we will be able to tell what the movie has to offer...

28.01.2019 • AQUAMAN ON THE DC THRONE

That was hardly to be expected: AQUAMAN is now the most successful DC movie of all time! With 1,091 Billion US-Dollars, it pushed »The Dark Knight Rises« off its throne.

Rumor has it that »Aquaman 2« is already in development - it only remains to be seen if James Wan will come back to his director's chair. It depends on how or even if he can work with the script - that's why Warner seems to think about letting Wan choose the screenwriters on his own. Let's wait and see...

However - congratulations, Arthur Curry!

24.01.2019 • THE RED SUIT IS FAR FROM BEING REDUNDANT

DEAPOOL 3 is going to happen! Ryan Reynolds confirmed this personally during an interview within the »Deadpool 2« promotion in China. He said that the third part will be completely different - whatever that means...

If or what effects this news will have on the planned project »X-FORCE« remains to be seen. We keep you posted, of course!

23.01.2019 • NEWS FROM MIDDLE-EARTH

Since we are done with the arrival of the huge 1/6 shipment, we are now putting the pedal to the metal in dispatching the goods.

Due to the fact that in this shipping there have also been two novelties from »Middle-Earth« by ASMUS TOYS - Bilbo and Thorin - and we fortunately were able to re-stock a small quantity of the fantastic Gimli figure, we want to recommend you the great and informative review by our friend Mick (Action Figure District) as today's news.

Some weeks ago, Mick talked about the 1/6 Scale Gimli by Asmus in detail on the RETROHELDEN channel and he, in this context, also put together a retrospective of the previous LOTR collectibles on the market. Really a contribution worth watching!

22.01.2019 • OSCARS 2019 - THE NOMINEES

The nominations of this year's Oscars are out now! Represented for multiple times are GREEN BOOK, A STAR IS BORN, THE FAVOURITE, BOHEMIAN RHAPSODY, VICE, BLACKKKLANSMAN and the Netflix production ROMA. If Alfonso Cuarón can indeed take the triple consisting of best motion picture, best foreign language film and directing...?

Actually, BLACK PANTHER is also nominated several times, even as best movie - the chances for this award are rather marginal though. The category "best visuell effects" will be exciting - INFINITY WAR, SOLO and READY PLAYER ONE fight a duel here. We are also excited if SPIDER-MAN: INTO THE SPIDER-VERSE will prevail against the Pixar "classics".

Also the only German input NEVER LOOK AWAY did make it under the nominees for the best foreign language movie. And in addition to the category "cinematography" - we are delighted! You can find the complete list on the official Oscars website.

17.01.2019 • THE CARRIER ALWAYS RINGS TWICE

Today we already had some early-morning exercise, at the S.P.A.C.E warehouse :-) The reason for that was that we had to unload a huge number of boxes - jam-packed with 1/6 scale collectibles.

The collector's items from Asia will now be unpacked, controlled and sorted - we are putting the pedal to the metal so that we can start shipping your pre-ordered items from mid of next week the latest. So please have a bit more patience - it's definitely worth it! For all spontaneous of you, we recommend to keep an eye on the »Just arrived« section.

16.01.2019 • JASON REITMAN AIN'T AFRAID OF NO GHOST

GHOSTBUSTERS 3 is going to happen! We did not expect this news at all - but now there is the official announcement that there will be a "real" sequel of the Ghostbusters series. After the reboot with female cast was quite a flop at the box office, this part is supposed to directly continue to the original movies from the 80s.

Director will be Jason Reitman, son of original director Ivan Reitman. The filming could already start within the next months because the movie is expected to hit theaters in summer 2020 already. There is no info yet about if performers from the past will also play a part or not.

15.01.2019 • I'M NOT THE ONE WHO DIES...

This Friday, January 18th, it'll get bloody again on Netflix. Because then the long-desired second season of THE PUNISHER with the fantastic Jon Bernthal as Marvel's badass hero Frank Castle is going to start.

The recently released trailer of season 2 is really wicked! You can watch it here.

After »Iron Fist«, »Luke Cage« and above all »Daredevil« were canceled, we are worrying about the punisher and that it could also be canceled soon. That would be really too bad...

10.01.2019 • THE S.P.A.C.E TOP 5 AT THE MOVIES IN JANUARY

Despite the five cinema start Thursdays, there are no true blockbusters in January but an extremely high amount of interesting movies though. Robin Hood may sound as the "biggest" Name here, but the critics are mostly devastating and this is why it didn't make it to our list. There are some worth watching films which are not in our Top 5 either, such as »The Wife«, »The Front Runner« with Hugh Jackman, the - like 10 times rescheduled - horror movie »Polaroid«, as well as »The Mule« (by and) with Clint Eastwood and Bradley Cooper.

Number 5:
FAHRENHEIT 11/9 | release date: 17.01.2019
Michael Moore's next coup attends the election day when Donald Trump became President of the United States. Furthermore, this uncommonly serious documentary highlights the prehistory, how this was even possible. It impressively shows the split of the US population.

Number 4:
THE FAVOURITE | release date: 24.01.2019
Who thinks, this is a classical history drama of the early 18th century, is wrong and should definitely watch the trailer. Not only Emma Stone makes this funny movie about the fragile and slightly wacky Queen Anne something special - just something different...

Number 3:
GLASS | release date: 17.01.2019
After »Unbreakable« (Bruce Willis, Samuel L. Jackson) and »Split« (James McAvoy) comes now the merger »Glass« by Indian director and mastermind M. Night Shyamalan. Can he perfect the (unexpected) trilogy now? We are really looking forward to this movie! :-)

Number 2:
CREED II | release date: 24.01.2019
The successful Rocky spin-off with Michael B. Jordan and Sylvester Stallone enters the second round. Rocky Balboa's eighth appearance will actually be his very last. But one thing is certain: Sylvester Stallone was, is and remains Rocky forever.

Number 1:
GREEN BOOK | release date: 31.01.2019
Last Sunday, the new movie of Peter Farrelly was honored with three Golden Globes - best motion picture (comedy/musical), best screenplay and Mahershala Ali for best performance by an actor in a supporting role. The true story about the piano virtuoso Dr. Don Shirley, who wants to tour through the southern states of the US in 1962 and hires the Italian bouncer (Viggo Mortensen) as his driver, is told simply fabulous. Despite - or maybe because of - the contrasts of the two characters, the result is a very special type of road movie. This could already be one of the films of the year!

The S.P.A.C.E Crew wishes you good times at the movies!

08.01.2019 • HOPE BEGINS WITH A HERO

Needless to say, the new cinema year has to offer several superhero blockbusters again. The first one is continuing the »Marvel Cinematic Universe«, namely with the powerful CAPTAIN MARVEL.

A few hours ago, there has been released a 90-second clip which shows many new, action-packed as well as funny facets of the movie and of Brie Larson as Carol Danvers in particular. You should really watch the trailer - in our opinion, this preview gets you in the mood for the movie, much more than the first trailers.

In addition, we get to see new posters also. This one in kind of a retro comic style is our favorite - just awesome! :-)

07.01.2019 • A GOLDEN RHAPSODY

Last night, the 76th GOLDEN GLOBES were awarded in Los Angeles. »Black Panther« came away empty-handed - the winners of the evening have been »Bohemian Rhapsody«, »Green Book« and »Roma«.

However the first award went to Michael Douglas („The Kominsky Method“ - Netflix) as best actor in a TV series (musical or comedy).

You can find a list of all winners in the motion picture categories below:

Best Motion Picture, Drama:
“Bohemian Rhapsody”

Best Motion Picture, Musical or Comedy:
“Green Book”

Best Director, Motion Picture:
Alfonso Cuarón (“Roma”)

Best Performance by an Actor in a Motion Picture, Drama:
Rami Malek (“Bohemian Rhapsody”)

Best Performance by an Actress in a Motion Picture, Drama:
Glenn Close (“The Wife”)

Best Performance by an Actor in a Motion Picture, Musical or Comedy:
Christian Bale (“Vice”)

Best Performance by an Actress in a Motion Picture, Musical or Comedy:
Olivia Colman (“The Favourite”)

Best Performance by an Actor in a Supporting Role in Any Motion Picture:
Mahershala Ali (“Green Book”)

Best Performance by an Actress in a Supporting Role in Any Motion Picture:
Regina King (“If Beale Street Could Talk”)

Best Screenplay, Motion Picture:

Best Motion Picture, Foreign Language:

Justin Hurwitz (“First Man”)

Best Original Song, Motion Picture:

Even if Bradley Cooper - who delivered a fabulous movie with »A Star is born« without a doubt - was not honored, we are exceedingly pleased for Rami Malek. Let's hope that his Golden Globe is a positive harbinger for the Academy Awards in March.

We were also very pleased with the award for the highly praised »Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse«. Maybe this is another little nudge for some to watch the film at the movies...

04.01.2019 • STAR WARS UP CLOSE

The Force is strong with 2019... because aside from EPISODE IX there will be another highlight for ingrained STAR WARS fans this year - Star Wars: Galaxy's Edge!

At the Disneyland Resort in California and of course at the Walt Disney World Resort in Florida, the Star Wars theme park »Galaxy's Edge« will be opening this year's summer or fall. Recently there was released a first behind the scenes clip on YouTube, which you should definitely check out:

So, who of you will run to the travel center today for booking the next USA trip? ;-)

03.01.2019 • PRODUCT OF THE MONTH JANUARY 2019

Our DINNER FOR POOL New-Year-posting was already a little teaser. ;-) Today we officially unveil the Merc with a Mouth as our first »Product of the Month« of the year 2019!

Surely like for many of you, DEADPOOL 2 was one of our movie highlights of the past year. Now the appendant 1/6 Movie Masterpiece Figure by Hot Toys is in the process of being shipped. Unfortunately we only got a small partial delivery for photo purposes etc. so far, so you have to be patient a little bit until you can hold DP including a unicorn, high heels, katanas and many more in your hands. We can assure you that it will be worth waiting though...

02.01.2019 • WELCOME TO 2019!

A happy and most of all healthy New Year, dear S.P.A.C.E Army!

Hopefully, you all had a good start. We are almost completely on duty again. Now we are heading into a new, exciting year full of beautiful collectibles and creative ideas for indulging our common passion. You can definitely look forward to the next months. Now, at the beginning of the year, two teasers can already be revealed: there will be a lot more and greater content on our YouTube channel and there will finally be a S.P.A.C.E Collectors' Calendar in 2019 again!

We are looking forward to an eventful new year with you, dear customers - WELCOME TO 2019!

Your S.P.A.C.E Crew

24.12.2018 • MERRY CHRISTMAS!

Dear S.P.A.C.E Army, the whole S.P.A.C.E Crew including our two little droids wishes you all a happy Christmas Eve, relaxing and quiet holidays and a great start into the new year!

We thank you so much from our hearts for your loyalty, for your delight to share with us the hobby and the passion of collecting and in this year we especially give back our grateful thanks for the many congratulations which we received from you for our 20th anniversary. The year 2018 marked another milestone for us - 2019 will be at least as thrilling, because we have many plans ;-)

_ [...to be continued...]

Sven and the Crew

20.12.2018 • SMASH THINGS

After we already got to see some really cool stills and teaser posters, today we get presented the first trailer of the new HELLBOY movie! You should definitely check out the clip, because there's a lot to see, even though it's just a first preview.

We are only pondering right now about what style the piece of Neil Marshall will be. The reboot was announced as "dark and violent" - the trailer (especially due to its humor and the score) indicates something towards a kind of Deadpool though... And the coloring would also match ;-)

18.12.2018 • THE FORCE IS STRONG WITH THIS MALL

At the Dubai Mall’s Grand Atrium, you can gaze at a first-of-its-kind spectacle. More than 40 life-size figures by SIDESHOW were arranged into an unique STAR WARS exhibition. The army of Life-Size Stormtroopers and a Life-Size Darth Vader was aligned meticulously by hand for months. The exhibition was opened in a proper style by some members of the »501st Legion« fan organization.

So if somebody of you plans on traveling to Dubai the last weeks of this year, you should definitely take a live look at this - a little exaggerated but extremely randy - spectacle. We ask for a selfie ;-) And for us, who stay at home, here is a short clip of the action.

17.12.2018 • WETA IS RIDING INTO 2019

WETA already gives us a little taste of 2019 - at the beginning of the year, a magnificent new »Lord of the Rings« Ringwraith statue will be released for pre-order.

The limited 1/6 scale statue originates from sculptor Brigitte Wuest who already did the great BILBO BAGGINS mini statue for example. The Ringwraith on his black horse transmits an incredibly high dynamic and level of detail, only from the first (moving) pictures.

After Arwen and Frodo on Asfaloth are available for pre-order already, every passionated LOTR collector amongst you will have the possibility to complete the Flight to the Ford soon.

14.12.2018 • CHRISTMAS WITH DEADPOOL

Since this week, so right before Christmas, the "Good guy in red" is coming back to theatres in the US. This will actually happen in a sensational, never-seen-before, filtered to the prison of child-like innocence PG-13 version!

Of course we are talking about DEADPOOL and his part 2. We already spread the news that Americans would be able to enjoy Marvel's anti-hero #1 again for Christmas on the big screen. During the last days, a couple of super funny clips out of the marketing box popped up. You can watch them all on Ryan Reynolds' YouTube channel.

What we can offer you as an alternative to the movie experience, is the outstanding 1/6 Movie Masterpiece figure from »Deadpool 2« by Hot Toys. It will arrive at our warehouse soon :-)

13.12.2018 • THE S.P.A.C.E TOP 5 AT THE MOVIES IN DECEMBER

The last cinema month of the year is a real blast! A Top 5 is actually not enough to list all worth watching movies in December. You can definitely slip away to your lokal theater if the Christmas rush gets too much ;-)

Number 5:
WIDOWS | release date: 06.12.2018
Already last week, Steve McQueen's new film started at the movies. Four widows want to complete a coup which their deceased husbands have planned, but never realized it. The cast around Viola Davis, Michelle Rodriguez, Liam Neeson, Jon Bernthal, Colin Farrell and many more, is promising a lot! The critics are partially phenomenal - did you already watch »Widows«?

Number 4:
SPIDER-MAN: INTO THE SPIDER-VERSE | release date: 13.12.2018
This Spider-Man comes along in a very special comic style. The trailers did already look very cool and the critics are awesome. Lots of them say that it's even the best Spider-Man movie ever.

Number 3:
MORTAL ENGINES | release date: 13.12.2018
»Lord of the Rings« creator Peter Jackson sends his end time opus to the big screen today. In a far future, cities are not anchored to the ground anymore, but they're mobile and they fight for resources. The trailers already showed that visually this will be great.

Number 2:
BUMBLEBEE | release date: 20.12.2018
We are curious about what the spin-off from the »Transformers« franchise with Hailee Steinfeld, John Cena and co. has to offer. The story about the likable yellow Beetle could become the most successful movie from the »Transformers« universe.

Number 1:
AQUAMAN | release date: 20.12.2018
With pretty high expectations, the "protector of the deep" is in 1st place of our Top 5. The next chapter of the DCEU shines with a cast around Amber Heard, Nicole Kidman and of course Jason Momoa as Arthur Curry. This subsea adventure about the ruler of the Kingdom Atlantis will blow everybody away at the movie theaters, just by its special effects.

The S.P.A.C.E Crew wishes you good times at the movies - before, at or after Christmas!

11.12.2018 • LONG LIVE THE KING

Last night, a new and really monstrous GODZILLA trailer was released. The second part is called »King of the Monsters« and it will hit the movies on May 31st 2019.

To show who's the true king amongst the titans, Godzilla is going to mess with the three-headed Ghidorah and other giants. The trailers are promising an enormous amount of action and much screentime for the Japanese monster.

This will definitely be a film highlight of next year! The story will continue in 2020 with »Godzilla vs. Kong«. Are you also hyped after this trailer? ;-)

06.12.2018 • GOLDEN WAKANDA

There is more and more a discussion, why BLACK PANTHER should be an Oscar winner in 2019. Disney and Marvel probably do not object this and they are already advertising it heavily. It would be the first nomination of a super hero film in the category of "Best Motion Picture". Surely, Black Panther was one of the most successful movies of all time - especially in the US - and we don't want to talk it down, of course not. But best motion picture favorite...?

Today, the nominees for the Golden Globes, which will be awarded on January 6th, were released. And also here - unsurprisingly - Black Panther is up for "Best Motion Picture - Drama". Let's see if the biggest movie awards of the world will indeed go to Wakanda ;-)

And speaking of Wakanda: for all HOT TOYS collectors amongst you, we fortunately managed to get a few pieces of the 1/6 Scale T'CHAKA Movie Masterpiece MMS487 Toy Fairs 2018 Exclusive. They will be delivered already next week, probably :-)

04.12.2018 • EVERYTHING BEGINS WITH (A) HER(O)

Yesterday, the new CAPTAIN MARVEL trailer was already announced with a new poster. Last night, it was released as expected.

Our highlights of this second trailer are the extremely impressively rejuvenated Samuel L. Jackson as Nick Fury and the - as we think - fantastically casted Brie Larson. Surely, we will see the noble warrior hero again in the first »Avengers 4« teaser soon :-)

03.12.2018 • PRODUCT OF THE MONTH DECEMBER 2018

Granted: for many people, SUICIDE SQUAD is almost "water under the bridge" - since it's more than two years old. The movie still has a huge fan community though and especially due to its characters it still continues to have an effect. Suicide Squad 2 has been in the process of planning for quite some time now, but it was rescheduled because of the higher priority of »Birds of Prey« with Margot Robbie as Harley Quinn.

You can also see that the DC villain is an absolute fan favorite by the fact that within the last two years there has been a variety of Harley Quinn action-figures and statues. Various manufacturers grabbed licenses and collectibles were released in almost every common scale. It took the artists from SIDESHOW a lot of time to complete their version of a Premium Format Figure. But now finally the wait is over - Harley Quinn, Property of Joker, is now in delivery! We could do nothing else but crown her as our »Product of the Month« in December.

We will meet with Dr. Harleen Quinzel for an extensive photo shoot soon and we will show you the results of course ;-)

29.11.2018 • MAY THE FORCE BE WITH THE KIDS

From tomorrow on, Lucasfilm will be publishing episodes of a new animation series of shorts, called STAR WARS - GALAXY OF ADVENTURES. You can find a trailer here.

Scenes from all STAR WARS movies have been adapted in a very special animation style and there were added original sounds and voices.

The whole thing is indeed ment for children and shall introduce young kids to the STAR WARS universe. We really would like to know your opinion on this, especially from the parents amongst you. Would you show the series to your kids or would you rather wait for 1-2 years and watch the original movies together with them?

28.11.2018 • THE DAILY REMAKE LOOP

There's almost no day passing without another reboot or remake being announced... This time, there are news from the anime genre. COWBOY BEBOP is one of the most famous anime series and it will get a live-action remake.

The original space western by Hajime Yatate was released 20 years ago - now Netflix grabbed the rights for a live-action adaption and they will not only make friends with this. Of course, you have to wait for the final result but you really have to ask yourself: is it necessary?

Those of you who haven't seen the original series, can quickly change that - with Netflix :-)

27.11.2018 • FIRED UP FOR MORE

We already showed you the first posters of the HELLBOY reboot some time ago. EMPIRE has now published the first scene image. It again shows that David Harbour seems to be a great choice for the cast of Hellboy. Due to director Neil Marshall, the movie is going to be "more violent and bloody".

Whatever may be thought about a reboot - we are really excited about the first trailer, which hopefully will be presented to the entire world soon. The US cinema release is scheduled for April 12 2019.

26.11.2018 • CYBER MONDAY - LAST CALL!

Happy Cyber Monday! You bargain hunters did really make our warehouse smoke! So we will definitely need some time to handle and ship all of your orders, because there have been a lot.

During the day, there will be a last-minute special offer replenishment - since our CyberSpaceWeekend continues until tomorrow 8 a.m.

23.11.2018 • CYBERSPACEWEEKEND 2018

On today's BLACK FRIDAY, it's the official kick-off to our CyberSpaceWeekend 2018! You can grab the best deals on our shop until Tuesday morning. Hundrets of items are marked down and we will put up even more! So be cautious and check in more often over the whole weekend!

So then - let's start the wild discount-race :-)

21.11.2018 • WE'RE BAD GUYS. IT'S WHAT WE DO.

The next spin-off has a name. What sounded like a temporary title at first, is now officially confirmed: the Harley Quinn solo movie will be called BIRDS OF PREY (AND THE FANTABULOUS EMANCIPATION OF ONE HARLEY QUINN).

Protagonist Margot Robbie personally announced it posting a picture of the script. No, the additional title isn't a note by Robbie just for fun, but it belongs to the actual name of the movie. This looks like being a reference to BIRDMAN or (THE UNEXPECTED VIRTUE OF IGNORANCE) :-)

Christina Hodson is in charge for the screenplay by the way. She already wrote BUMBLEBEE, among other things. The theatrical release is scheduled on February 7th 2020.

20.11.2018 • THE PROTECTOR OF THE DEEP

The final trailer of AQUAMAN is available online! And we have to say that we like it the best from all clips.

However some scenes appear more like from a videogame than from a motion picture. CGI fair enough - especially when it comes to the subsea scenes - but it seems just a little too much because of all the gaudy colors and light effects. Let's see...

It is especially exciting which movie will be leading in December - Aquaman is of course the highlight but it has to be on par with BUMBLEE directly from its start. What are you looking forward to in December or what do you think about the "protector of the deep"?

19.11.2018 • MORE THAN A TOY...

Almost exactly 30 years ago, CHILD'S PLAY - the first part of the horror franchise with (meanwhile) cult status - came out. Now the remake/reboot wave is slopping over also here.

Next summer, more precisely on June 21st 2019, a reboot produced by MGM and Orion will hit the movies. We already set eyes on a first poster. The killer puppet gets a completely revised look and you can already tell its "real" name by the packaging on the poster: Buddi.

Alright then, we are ready for the first trailer :-)

15.11.2018 • ONCE UPON A DEADPOOL

20th Century Fox came up with something really special for the pre-Christmas season: there is going to be a "family-friendly" variation of DEADPOOL 2, called »Once Upon a Deadpool«.

The movie will be shown at the theaters in the two weeks before Christmas Eve (at least in the US). The age rating will be defused to PG-13 and in addition there will be eight brand new scenes, which will relate to the classical »The Princess Bride« including original actor Fred Savage. You can already see him riding on a reindeer together with DP on the associated poster :-)

A great initiative: a part of the box revenue will be donated to a cancer association. Awesome!

14.11.2018 • AN ANGEL FALLS, A PIKACHU RISES

This week, one trailer after the other pops in. Two days ago, Ryan Reynolds surprised us as Pikachu, yesterday the final trailer of »Alita: Battle Angel« was released.

We are really amazed by the Pokémon live-action movie »Detective Pikachu«, to be honest, and the reactions on the web are telling the same. What looks almost like a PR campaign for a new Deadpool movie at first, appears to be very interesting after watching the trailer. It just looks hilarious. And then Deadpool's voice - almost like a family-friendly version of Ted ;-)

We actually don't have to say much about »Alita: Battle Angel«. The movie created by James Cameron has been rescheduled to February 2019 in the meantime. This is going to be one of THE movie highlights next year.

13.11.2018 • FAREWELL, STAN!

Stan Lee passed away yesterday at the heroically age of 95. Recently, news were loud that Stan's state of health was unfortuntaley getting worse. But still the fact of his death comes over all of us like a shockwave. Stan Lee was not only the "father" of so many superheroes and comic series, we can in fact also thank him for the »Marvel Cinematic Universe«. He surely was THE forerunner of modern pop culture!

Almost as cultish as his creations have been his funny cameo appearances in so many movies. No matter if he was one of the jury members in Hulk, selling sodas on the beach in X-Men or if we just saw him on a huge wall poster (like recently in Deadpool 2) - it always was exciting and amusing to stumble on the bedrock in every new superhero blockbuster.

With all the superhuman strengths, powers and skills of Spider-Man, Hulk, Iron Man and Co., it's out of the question who's the biggest superhero among all Marvel characters: STAN THE MAN.


PS: Here you can find a nice compilation of many cameos by Stan Lee :-)

09.11.2018 • WHAT IS BEING COOKED?

As you know, the US channel AMC announced a film trilogy of »The Walking Dead« earlier this week. Now they go even further and dare to one of the most successful series of all time - BREAKING BAD!

It is confirmed that there is indeed going to be a sequel in the form of a movie. The story won't just take place in the BB universe but we will find out what happens to Jesse Pinkman after the final scenes. It is actually considered safe that Aaron Paul is involved in the project.

We just don't know what to think about these news... If the story is continued by Vince Gilligan in the customary manner, we can expect a terrific movie. On the downside, there's the risk of damaging the incredibly full and completed series itself. What do you think?

08.11.2018 • THE S.P.A.C.E TOP 5 AT THE MOVIES IN NOVEMBER

The last month but one of the year 2018 has just begun and there are a lot of novelties starting at the theaters. We just put together a colorful mix - you will find something for every taste in our top 5, from the animation family movie to the creepy psycho thriller :-)

Number 5:
THE GRINCH | release date: 29.11.2018
Again a "classic" which was newly filmed - even if it's animated this time. For many, Jim Carrey as grinch is part of the pre-Christmas season like glogg and gingerbread. The reissue could be a nice animation film for all ages though, even if you love Christmas ;-)

Number 4:
THE HOUSE THAT JACK BUILT | release date: 29.11.2018
Lars von Trier's new movie about the psychopath and serial killer Jack is worth mentioning, not only because of the cast around Matt Dillon, Bruno Ganz and Uma Thurman. You can already tell from the trailer, that this thriller will send shivers down your spine...

Number 3:
SUSPIRIA | release date: 15.11.2018
We already told you about this remake, or better its "need", some weeks ago. It seems as if the director Luca Guadagnino (also »Call Me by Your Name«) has succeeded in making a truly good movie. Let's leave to one side the argument about if it has still something to do with the original one - it at least belongs in our top 5.

Number 2:
FIRST MAN | release date: 08.11.2018
Director Damien Chazelle and actor Ryan Gosling are making common cause again after »La La Land«. This is why the result has to be something gorgeous. As you can tell from the term biopic, the movie is not only about the first moon landing but especially about the story of spaceman Neil Armstrong, the first man on the moon. That's one small film for moon landing skeptics, one giant film for everybody else ;-)

Number 1:
FANTASTIC BEASTS: THE CRIMES OF GRINDELWALD | release date: 15.11.2018
The second of five movies in total from J.K. Rowling's »Fantastic Beasts« series is probably one of the most anticipated movies of the year - not only among fans of Harry Potter. In the sequel, Grindelwald's escape succeeds and Dumbledore relies on Newt Scamander's help in tracking him. The story mainly takes place in Paris this time. We were already keen on the very first teaser trailer and we are just extremely looking forward to this film!

The S.P.A.C.E Crew wishes you good times at the movies!

06.11.2018 • NOW ALSO RICK...

For those of you who are always up-to-date at THE WALKING DEAD, yesterday's episode was surely nerve-racking. (Don't worry, you won't read any spoilers here.)

AMC revealed super hot news from the world of undead: there are going to be three TWD movies! Andrew Lincoln as Rick Grimes will be the main character here as well. As we think, this is actually kind of surprising, because the series itself is definitely headed south. The viewing rates haven't recovered so far and despite this they will do direct spin-offs? Or maybe because of that?

What sounds like a desperate effort of saving the cult zombie series, could also become a hit, you never know. It also depends on how the series itself is developing further...

05.11.2018 • WARRIORS COMING SOON!

DreamWorks put online the second trailer of the brand new SHE-RA AND THE PRINCESSES OF POWER series a few days ago! We not only get to see new characters in this clip but also we get to hear the official title song »Warriors« (by Aaliyah Rose) for the first time.

We think that this appears quite good and we are excited what the series has to offer. It will launch in just over a week on NETFLIX! How about you inveterate He-Man and She-Ra fans? Are you looking forward to the series or couldn't you care less about it...?

02.11.2018 • ATTACK ON HOLLYWOOD

One of the most famous and successful mangas will be converted into a Hollywood Blockbuster: ATTACK ON TITAN!

Mastermind of the project will be »It« director Andrés Muschietti. When the movie will be shot is still written in the stars. Because for the time being, Andy is still hanging out with Pennywise.

Fun Fact: Hajime Isayama, creator of the manga series, did get his inspiration for the architecture and the disposition of his districts right in front of our doorstep. Our hometown Nördlingen actually conduced as a role model for his creation. It seems that Hajime was visiting our small town one day :-)
Did anyone of you guys also already visit Nördlingen?

01.11.2018 • PRODUCT OF THE MONTH NOVEMBER 2018

Since »Masters of the Universe« of course plays a big role with us, it was quickly decided in our committee that our product of the month November will be the newly arrived LAUGHING PRINCE ADAM from Super7's MOTU Club Grayskull line!

For this very special figure, which by the way was released exclusively for this year's San Diego Comic Con, the Super7 designer team got inspiration through a YouTube video - a so called meme. HEYYEYAAEYAAAEYAEYAA is the strange title of the clip - but you will quickly get a flashback not only to the great 80's, but also to the 90's surely.

Even if the video might not be everybody's taste, we think that the Prince Adam Filmation figure is absolutely geeky - already because of its really unique packaging. But if you are afraid of glitter, then you should think twice about a purchase ;-)
 

31.10.2018 • HAPPY HALLOWEEN!

Isn't that phat? Look what an awesome anniversary pumpkin the world's best pumpkin carver brought us, with his beautiful chainsaw!

So the night of horror, darkness and terror can begin - the whole S.P.A.C.E Crew wishes you a spooky Halloween!

And in case you still need some fresh music for your party tonight, we highly recommend you this video by the SLASHSTREET BOYS. We all know the popular tune »I'll kill you that way«, don't we :o)

https://youtu.be/oliCVn7Ic68

26.10.2018 • EVEN MORE PENNYWISE...

The slightly rainy weather of the last few days had the perfect mood or inspiration for extensively dedicating ourselves to our current product of the month again.

We did this together with our buddy and very gifted toy photographer Patrick. You can find the results of the PENNYWISE shooting in the appropriate album on Facebook.

For those of you who don't know Patrick's Instagram page yet, you should follow @wonderbunk straight away ;-) And speaking of "follow": after both the already available IT figures, NECA announced another 2017 Pennywise in the super-scary »Well House« version. Of course, you can already find the clown for pre-order online on our website.
 

25.10.2018 • MICHAEL IS BACK!

HAPPY HALLOWEEN! No, we did not make a mistake in our calendar... It's actually only October 25th but it's already Halloween at the movies. On this date 40 years ago, John Carpenter's iconic original hit the big screen. With a budget of only 325.000 dollars, the movie from 1978 brought in over 70 million dollars. Now Michael Myers is back and already brought in phenomenal 77.5 million dollars to the box offices, just on the opening weekend (the movie is playing already a week in the US)! So »Halloween 2018« only just missed VENOM which achieved the best October start of all time. It also took the 2nd place in the category "best opening of a horror movie" behind Stephen King's IT from 2017.

Does it attract you to go to the theater already tonight or are you waiting until the 31. of October? Then you should maybe hurry up and get your ticket because the movie theaters will definitely be crowded. Who's not up to Halloween? On Halloween... ;-)

23.10.2018 • PINOCCHIO DEL TORO

It looks like Oscar premiered director Guillermo del Toro has a new project after his hit »The Shape Of Water«. And it will be an absolute affair of the heart for him: PINOCCHIO - filmed as stop-motion-movie in a musical style. It's made possible by streaming giant Netflix.

The movie will be much darker than the Disney original and it will play in the 30's in Italy. For the screenplay del Toro had support by Patrick McHale and Mark Gustafson, who has already been animation director at Wes Anderson's »Fantastic Mr. Fox«.

When the project will be released in theaters or probably on Netflix directly is still unclear - probably it won't be before 2020.

19.10.2018 • THE GIANT OF THE FANGORN FOREST

The look at this photograph will probably cause heart flutter with all LORD OF THE RINGS fans and collectors... The incredibly talented artists from the WETA WORKSHOP from New Zealand will launch the pre-order phase of their so far biggest collectible in 1:6 scale next week: TREEBEARD!

Back in summer at San Diego Comic Con, when the Treebeard (with Merry & Pippin) »Masters Collection« Statue was revealed for the first time, it immediately gave us goosebumps. It surely was one of the highlights from the show. Now, every collector with the proper room and budget can secure this wonderful collectible. But you have to be fast, because it is limited to only 333 pieces worldwide.

In case somebody has serious interest, please drop us an e-mail with your inquiry. We will probably get allocated by Weta with some few pieces only and because of the small edition size, we will not list this item on our website yet.

18.10.2018 • THERE'S MORE TO THE LEGEND

We have a little TV tip for tonight: as a DC superhero fan - provided that you receive the PayTV channel SYFY - you should not miss the German premiere of KRYPTON.

The US series tells the story of Superman's grandfather on the home planet Krypton and follows him on his way of saving the planet from chaos and destruction. The first season contains 10 episodes and starts tonight at 8.15 pm. Who of you is also looking forward?

17.10.2018 • OF REMAKES AND REBOOTS

Recently, we gave you quite some informations about several reboots and remakes. What do you think about this current trend of making new editions of old movie classics? One example is SUSPIRIA. The original horror film from 1977 is considered as absolutely legendary. There will now be a remake after more than 40 years, directed by Luca Guadagnino.

The whole movie seems to be getting a complete new impression when it comes to the setting as well as the music or just the fact that it will be one full hour longer. So does this remake still have anything to do with the original? Or do they just try to market an unspectacular thriller better by giving it a famous name?

A remake of Dario Argento's masterpiece looks like an act of sacrilege to true fans anyway. You can't improve a masterpiece. As no one would have the idea of re-print Mona Lisa.

The movie can only be good if it takes its own way. Good remakes have never been real remakes actually, but were always reinterpretations of the source material. Like »Hammer Films«, who reinterpreted the Universal classics, or Carpenter doing his "Thing", and Cronenberg making his impression on the Fly.

Maybe some "fresh blood" is needed within the movie terrain, especially in the genre of horror... HEREDITARY, for example, proved it: everyone defining horror with more than cheap jump scares, everyone liking his brain being strained and being surprised by non predictable twists of the story is well served here. It's definitely a movie which has a potential to become a modern classic. By the way: it will be released for your home cinema next week.

So for all you nostalgia fans, here's the trailer on the real Suspiria from 1977:
https://youtu.be/MecSlkWMHPY

15.10.2018 • FROM THE GUARDIANS TO THE TASK FORCE?

After DISNEY "separated" themselves from »Guardians of the Galaxy« director and writer James Gunn a couple of weeks ago, he obviously seems to change sites! Rumors say that WARNER recruited the film-maker for the DC Universe and chartered him directly for the sequel of »Suicide Squad« - at least for the screenplay. Of course the director seat would be a logical consequence ;-)

Why not - at least that's what we think! The way how Gunn brought the Guardians - or the bunch of assholes, as they are also called sometimes - to the screen could greatly work also for Task Force X. We are excited how the story continues...

11.10.2018 • SOMETIMES DEAD IS BETTER...

...seems as if this is the plot of Stephen King's PET SEMATARY remake. The first trailer is online and it scares the hell out of us.

We are really excited what to expect from the movie hitting theaters in April 2019. The wave of reboots and remakes doesn't even stop at cuddly animals... :D

10.10.2018 • THE PENNYWISE FLOOD

After the last year's highly successful remake of STEPHEN KING's »IT«, numerous collectible manufacturers had the idea to catch the clown franchise license. Therefore, quite a number of Pennywise items were presented at San Diego Comic Con this summer - in the 2017 blockbuster version as well as with the classical 1990s look.

Both of the "Ultimate" action figures by NECA fortunately are available in the meanwhile (check out our current product of the month). The figures leave nothing to be desired at their price category due to the rich accessories and the great finishing! For those who would like to spend some more money, there are several options by brands like Prime 1 Studio, Iron Studios or Quantum Mechanix. However our favorite is the 1/5 scale Maquette by TWEETERHEAD. The truly threatening pose of Pennywise, as he's sitting on the coffin, is looking amazing. The sculpt, the paint job and in addition to that, the variable possibilities of displaying it, are just gorgeous in our opinion. That's why our buy recommendation for every "It" fan (when it comes to limited editions) is: Tweeterhead's Pennywise Maquette!

09.10.2018 • HELL YEAH!

Recently a first film poster of the HELLBOY Reboot with David Harbour was already released - and we think it is absolutely smashing! A Hellboy on fire with a blazing blade across the shoulder - the short text "LEGENDARY AF." above the logo needs no explanation ;-)

The new, official artwork shows additional main- and secondary characters, but its style is in clear contrast to the poster mentioned above. There shall be a first trailer coming soon because at the New York Comic Con, first moving pictures were shown to a handful of people.

The new release date in the US is April the 12th 2019. The release date for Germany is unknown yet.

08.10.2018 • A NEW BEGINNING

As you know, October is the classical starting month for a new season of THE WALKING DEAD. So it's about time again - last night, the first episode of season 9 was aired on American television. For German fans, the premiere is going to follow tonight (at least for all Pay TV customers that receive FOX).

Are you still looking forward excitedly like during the times of the first seasons or do you also think that it's time again for some more thrill and zombie action? Somehow, we are indeed excited what developments there will be in and around Alexandria, besides Rick's new short hairstyle.

05.10.2018 • THE MANDALORIAN

Heads up, Star Wars fans! Today we have some super hot news from a galaxy far, far away:

Jon Favreau - the director of the upcoming STAR WARS live-action TV series, which will run on Disney‘s own streaming platform - revealed the name and plot of the project! The series will be called THE MANDALORIAN. We will probably get to see a mandalorian anti hero as title character. The timeline is supposed to be set after the fall of the Empire and before the formation of the First Order, that means between Episode VI and VII. Hopefully, all ingrained fans of Jango and Boba Fett will be calmed now, after Disney did put e.g. a Boba Fett solo movie on the back burner. That could really be good!

Last night, a first photo of a mandalorian gunfighter from the set was published right away - so the shooting of the series has already started!

04.10.2018 • THE S.P.A.C.E TOP 5 AT THE MOVIES IN OCTOBER

The cinema month October is full of great film releases - you could even go and get a book of 10 tickets for the movies. :-) As always, we picked out our 5 favorites - this time the ranking is pretty close together though, so we will maybe watch all five:

Number 5:
BAD TIMES AT THE EL ROYALE | release date: 11.10.2018
A pretty freaky movie with a great 60's atmosphere by Drew Goddard, in which 7 strangers (i.a. Chris Hemsworth and Jeff Bridges) check in to the run-down hotel »El Royale«. All of them are up to no good and of course their ways are crossing throughout the story.

Number 4:
A STAR IS BORN | release date: 04.10.2018
The story of a young woman, that becomes a star over night with her voice, was already filmed three times. This time the story definitely subsists on the chemistry of the both protagonists Bradley Cooper (who's also the director) and Lady Gaga. Together with the fantastic film score the result is an emotional movie, where we already liked the trailers a lot.

Number 3:
BOHEMIAN RHAPSODY | release date: 31.10.2018
The next musical film in our top 5: the biopic about the legendary rock band QUEEN by director Bryan Singer. Rami Malek seems to be a great cast for Freddie Mercury - you can already tell that from the trailers. Queen is simply cult and this movie looks like it terrifically portrays the story of the band and especially of Mercury himself.

Number 2:
HALLOWEEN | release date: 25.10.2018
Exactly 40 years after the first Halloween movie by John Carpenter, Michael Myers is back. The eighth sequel is attached directly to the original from 1978 and also Jamie Lee Curtis and Nick Castle are indeed a part of it again. Even John Carpenter is involved, but "only" with the score of the film. We are pretty damn hyped for this "true" sequel of the classic!

Number 1:
VENOM | release date: 03.10.2018
Already yesterday started the anti hero movie with a superb Tom Hardy in the main role as journalist Eddie Brook. He comes in touch with a symbiote and transforms into the creature from the Spider-Man universe. The reviews differ a lot, but in our opinion Tom Hardy is doing everything right once again, so the - sometimes not so thrilling - story almost fades into the background.


The S.P.A.C.E Crew wishes you good times at the movies!

03.10.2018 • SUPER7 AND THE PRINCESSES OF POWER!

Tomorrow one of the most important conventions of the year will kick-off in the USA - the NEW YORK COMIC CON! This event lately gained more and more on importance and so almost no manufacturer can dare to stay away from the Big Apple.

As a little teaser on NYCC2018, the website »Toy News International« just posted these hot news for all She-Ra fans: SUPER7 obviously signed a license deal with NETFLIX and will reveal 6" figures from She-Ra and Catra from the upcoming »She-Ra and the Princesses of Power« series exclusively at the con! That sounds pretty exciting... we are thrilled to see the figures - and of course the show which will air on Netflix mid of November.

01.10.2018 • PRODUCT OF THE MONTH OCTOBER 2018

Ho do you often say: all good things come in threes! Due to the fact that NECA is recently convincing us when it comes to product quality and variety, we indeed decided to choose the third »Product of the Month« by the same manufacturer in a row.

Also consistent with the creepy month of October, we came to the conclusion: it has to be the classic 1990 Pennywise from Stephen Kings IT. The 7" Ultimate Pennywise comes with four different interchangable heads in total and additionally with nice little gimmicks like two green monster hands, a noisemaker, colorful balloons and a little paper boat. So there are almost no limits to your creativity!

Like all NECA Ultimate figures the horror clowns is delivered in a elaborately designed window box and looks impressive even when it's still not unpacked. But we would recommend to unpack it and play with it ;-)

28.09.2018 • MYTHIC LEGIONS FROM ETERNIA?

All »Masters of the Universe« collectors should be pretty familiar with the in-house figure lines of FOUR HORSEMEN STUDIOS. The very accurate »Mythic Legions« are definately setting the bar in the 7" scale, because the Four Horsemen exactly know the game, due to their long experience and their big passion for details and quality.

In the past years, we got to see a couple of figures from their own themes which were strongly inspired by the Masters. Unfortunately these figures are very hard to get in our regions and they get sold out quickly because of the stricly limited production runs.

We are very glad to be able to offer a small batch of the two upcoming »Soul Spiller« figures now. COWARROS, a warrior who stronly reminds on Cringer, and MALYNNA, a female dark elf who surely had Evil-Lyn as a model, are now listed for pre-order on our website :-)

27.09.2018 • DARK PHOENIX FOR VALENTINE'S DAY

20th Century Fox has just released the first trailer of the next X-MEN movie. X-MEN: DARK PHOENIX will be all about the character or the growth of the mutant »Jean Grey«m who is played by the charming Sophie Turner. Of course the trailer - as well as the first teaser poster - is a must-see!

DARK PHOENIX will hit theaters on February 14th next year! Well, if this isn't going to be a romantic Valentine's Day ;-)

26.09.2018 • THE NEXT TRAIN TO BUSAN

Fans of horror, listen up! There is indeed going to be an US remake of the South Korean zombie hit TRAIN TO BUSAN. The project will be supervised by two familiar guys: after his current movie »Aquaman« is completed, James Wan (Insidious, Conjuring, The Nun) will set to work together with Gary Dauberman (Annabelle, IT, The Nun) to reissue Sang-ho Yeon's zombie apocalypse.

On the other hand Yeon himself is working on a sequel of the original film called »Bando«, which means something like "peninsula" - so you can basically guess the scenario here. If you haven't watched »Train To Busan« yet, you should go and search for it on Netflix ;-)

24.09.2018 • EVERY HERO HAS A BEGINNING

Earlier today the new trailer of the Transformers spin-off BUMBLEBEE was released online. The movie with Hailee Steinfeld as "beetle mom" Charlie will hit theaters just before Christmas this year. The trailer promises a lot of action, not only because Bumblebee is facing Optimus Prime...

In our opinion the dialogs seem a little stiff, but that could be due to the (current) German synchronization. What do you guys think?

20.09.2018 • THE EXCLUSIVES HAVE ARRIVED...

Yesterday our delivery from California with this year's SAN DIEGO COMIC CON exclusives have finally arrived :-)

The yield wasn't as sumptuous as usual this time but there are some tidbits though. Due to the fact that we only have small numbers or only single pieces of most of the exclusives, you won't find them on our website for the moment. So don't hesitate to contact us by mail or phone if you're interested...

19.09.2018 • ROBB STARK BECOMES A BODYGUARD

At the end of October we can look forward to a real highlight when it comes to series: the terror series »Bodyguard« celebrated a sensational start in Great Britain (on BBC ONE) at the end of August and attracted over 10 million visitors at home. The largest share has Richard Madden, who's famous for playing Robb Stark in »Game Of Thrones«. In this new series he convinces as one of two main characters.

Of course NETFLIX, the giant of streaming, secured the international rights and they will start streaming the first season of »Bodyguard« over here on 24th of October already.

17.09.2018 • ARTHUR.

About two months ago we reported that there will be a Joker origins movie with Joaquin Phoenix in the main role. Now director Todd Phillips personally published a picture of the "new" Joker. As a subtitle he only wrote "Arthur.", which probably provides us Joker's real name.

Additionally a recording of the shooting, in which we can see Phoenix in action for the first time, popped up on the web.

We think that this could turn out to be something great... What do you think - will Joaquin Phoenix go down better in the role than Jared Leto?

14.09.2018 • 20 YEARS OF S.P.A.C.E

Exactly today, 20 years ago, S.P.A.C.E was born - and this has to be celebrated big time! Therefore we will kick off our big ANNIVERSARY SALE with following voucher raffle:

13.09.2018 • THE S.P.A.C.E TOP 5 AT THE MOVIES IN SEPTEMBER

It is September and you can notice that the "cinema season" gains momentum. This month a lot of new movies are starting, among them are also some German productions worth watching - however with our Top 5 we are concentrating on films from the genres thriller, action, sci-fi, fantasy and horror.

Number 5:
MILE 22 | release date: 13.09.2018
Looks like a solid action thriller with (a not so powerful) Mark Wahlberg who has to smuggle an informant out of the country as an elite secret agent. On the way to the airport, which is 22 miles long, one action scene lines up after the other.

Number 4:
THE HOUSE WITH A CLOCK IN ITS WALLS | release date: 20.09.2018
Eli Roth's magical adventure tells the story of a little boy who moves to his uncle (played by Jack Black) into an old house where an invisible clock seems to be ticking all the time. The mysterious place turns into a secret world of witches when little Lewis accidentally wakes up the dead.

Number 3:
THE NUN | release date: 06.09.2018
The latest part from the »Conjuring« universe is set in the 50's in Romania. A young nun commits suicide and there shall be an investigation, why she did this. Already the grim atmosphere of the cloistered abbey guarantees goosebumps.

Number 2:
INCREDIBLES 2 | release date: 27.09.2018
14 years after the animation blockbuster by Disney / Pixar now finally follows the long-awaited sequel. After more than three months (!) later than the US, we here in Germany at last get the chance to get our laugh muscles strained again by the family with superpowers.

Number 1:
THE PREDATOR | release date: 13.09.2018
Shane Black's new film from the Predator franchise hits theaters in Germany today. Predators make it back to earth and they are now even more superior and deadlier than ever before. Especially the ultimate Predator seems invincible for the crew of ex-soldiers and the result is a very action-loaded Predator sequel. Also a large chunk of irony and loose talking seem to matter this time - if this is actually good remains to be seen. The reviews are widely divergent - we are just excited what the sequel has to offer.

The S.P.A.C.E Crew wishes you good times at the movies!

10.09.2018 • MATTEL AS WELL

All Barbie, He-Man or Hot Wheels fans listen up: Mattel established their own movie-making business.

Mattel Films is going to be lead by Robbie Brenner, who was involved at »Dallas Buyers Club« or »Alien vs. Predator 2«.
Of course a lot of fans are waiting for an implementation of a new »Masters of the Universe« Movie, but if and when remains to be seen. We would be extremely happy about that.

In your opinion, which project should Mattel shoot first?

06.09.2018 • HALLOWEEN 40 YEAR LATER

Since yesterday night you can find the new HALLOWEEN trailer on YouTube

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=p-T8ksX4hdU

The movie of director David Gordon Green will be seen on screen at the 25th October 2018.
The story around Michael Myers will take place 40 years after the original movie from the 25th October 1978 as a direct sequel.

The trailer is definitely giving us goose bumps, doesn’t it?

05.09.2018 • HENRY CAVILL AS NETFLIX WITCHER

Finally we know who is going to be the Geralt of Rivia in the Netflix Series »THE WITCHER«.
It’s going to be no less than Henry Cavill who played the role of the Superman last.

The shooting of the series is planned for November 2018.

We are curious how Henry Cavill will turn out as Geralt. What do you think about this cast?

03.09.2018 • PRODUCT OF THE MONTH SEPTEMBER 2018

This time our product of the month is no less than Marvels anti-hero DEADPOOL.

The 1/4 Scale Ultimate Deadpool is not only NECA’s first Ultimate figure in 1/4 scale, but also equipped with a lot of rad accessories like changeable heads, Chimichanga and cheese pizza topping.
The figure is around 45 cm tall and as all the NECA Ultimate figures very agile because of its more than 30 articulation points. The packaging is also an eye catcher.

It was generally agreed, that DEADPOOL shall be our product of the month for September and is allowed to decorate our front page of the shop.

30.08.2018 • ZDF SHOWS “THE SWARM” IN GOGGLE-BOX

The epic eco-thriller is finally going to be shot after 14 years of publication.

The 987 pages comprising works is going to be a “High-End-Series with international format“, according to ZDF.

Besides the author Frank Schätzling, the "Game of Thrones" producer Frank Doelger will also work on the eight episodes with 45 minutes duration.
When the series is going to have the first run, is not clear, but the filming shall start in 2019.

Who of you did read the book and is excited about this series implementation?
We are definitely curious about it.

28.08.2018 • MATTEL AND SUPER7 AT THE POWER-CON 2018

The POWER-CON in Los Angeles ended recently and the MOTU Fans got to see a lot again.

SUPER7 did not only show the second Vintage Wave, they also revealed new POWER-CON EXCLUSIVES.
Among others an Anti He-Man ReAction figure on English card was spotted.

MATTEL showed some displays with different prototypes everything around the MASTERS OF THE UNIVERSE and THUNDERCATS.
If they were implemented in reality remains to be seen.

You can find one or another Video of the Power-Con in the internet already.

27.08.2018 • PICTURES OUT OF A DIFFERENT GALAXY

Not long ago the shooting of the ninth part of the STAR WARS SAGA has begun.

Now, first pictures of the set appeared. You can see Poe, Finn and Chewbacca along with a group of unknown on the pictures.
The one who is missing is Rey.

Which way she may has chosen?  What do you think?

23.08.2018 • ZIMMER IS BACK FOR WW84

On October 31st 2019, WONDER WOMAN 1984 will hit the movies. Now we get to know that Rupert Gregson-Williams won't be in charge of the soundtrack as he was for the first part (although it wasn't bad at all - quite the contrary!). His successor will be nobody less than Hans Zimmer!

The german star composer actually declared that he won't be scoring another superhero movie after Nolan's »The Dark Knight« trilogy, »Man Of Steel« and »Batman V Superman«. It seems that he now got an offer he could not reject :-)

There's nothing wrong with Warner Bros.' decision, because Hans Zimmer is always a good choice when it comes to extraordinary film score, right?

22.08.2018 • WELCOME TO YOUR WORST NIGHTMARES

FUNKO launches the most famous horror characters with its »Horror Savage World« line, inspired by the 5.5 inch »Masters of the Universe« figures by Mattel from the 80s.

There will be FREDDY KRUEGER, JASON VOORHEES, LEATHERFACE, MICHAEL MYERS and PINHEAD - all in a pumped up superhero look. We think they're kind of funny, but we are not on the same page about this kind of interpretation being conclusive or not. What do you think?

Anyway, you can already find Jason, Michael Myers and Pinhead for pre-order online.
 

21.08.2018 • IT'S TIME FOR GAMBLING

Today starts the 10th edition of the world's biggest game trade fair: the GAMESCOM.

This Tuesday is trade visitor and media day, from Wednesday to Saturday the gates are open for everyone who wants to obtain information about the latest trends and novelties in the gaming scene at more than 1,000 exhibitors from 50 countries.

16.08.2018 • HOT TOYS' TRIBUTE TO CHRISTOPHER ROBIN

This week, 1/6 scale top dog HOT TOYS fires one after another! Today they revealed a collectible set consistent to the motion picture »Christopher Robin« which hits theaters today.

The set, which brings you WINNIE THE POOH and PIGLET, is surely going to make disney fans' hearts beat faster. HOT TOYS' cooperation with Disney is flowing ;-)

You will find the sugar-sweet set for pre-order with us online soon.

15.08.2018 • NEWS FROM WAKANDA

For some weeks already the BLACK PANTHER DVD or Blu-ray will have found its place in the TV racks of (almost) every Marvel fan.

HOT TOYS now follows with the release of SHURI as breathtaking 1/6 scale collectible, as well as an appropriate Wakanda Throne for the 1/6 scale Black Panther. SHURI already ranked among the highlights of the SDCC and the product images are extremely promising.

You can find the HOT TOYS collectibles to the Marvel blockbuster for pre-order here.

14.08.2018 • THREE WALKING DEAD

Our friend Mick from the ACTION FIGURE DISTRICT has again some great and detailed reviews for you.

This time he took a close look to the three »The Walking Dead« characters Michonne, Daryl und Negan in 1/6 Scale by the Asian manufacturer THREEZERO.

09.08.2018 • THE S.P.A.C.E TOP 5 AT THE MOVIES IN AUGUST

Many new released are coming our way in August - but we honestly couldn't find any outstanding highlight. Still we put together our personal top 5 list of this month's new movies for you:

Number 5:
THE MEG | release date: 09.08.2018
A story similar to »Jaws« does always work, doesn't it? This time they took Jason Statham in the boat (literally), to bring Steven Alten's novel about a long extincted Megalodon, some sort of origin shark, to the big screen. Mega trash or packing action flick - we're not so sure yet...

Number 4:
MY NAME IS THOMAS | release date: 23.08.2018
Finally Terence Hill is back - though of course without his mate Bud Spencer... The movie rather looks like from the road movie / drama genre, but still worth seeing, especially for the real fans.

Number 3:
THE EQUALIZER 2 | release date: 16.08.2018
The sequel from 2014 surely is going to be a hit, with the great Danzel Washington in the leading role. The trailers appear really action loaded!

Number 2:
MISSION: IMPOSSIBLE - FALLOUT | release date: 02.08.2018
Round 6 was the call for Tom Cruise as Ethan Hunt, who again was shooting all his stunts on his own. Some critics say that this sequel is the best of all MI episodes.

Number 1:
BLACKKKLANSMAN | release date: 23.08.2018
Director Spike Lee is famous for his very own, unique kind of film making. His new "joint" takes place in Colorado Springs, a city in which never before a black detective had anything to say. But now, Ron Stallworth (played by John David Washington) comes to lead the office, in order to prevent a mean attack of the Ku Klux Klan. His (white, Jewish) partner: Adam Driver. The whole thing looks very special but thrilling somehow, especially also because of a certain portion sarcasm in the story and the funky beat in the soundtrack. The movie is based on true events, by the way - or as it's said in the trailer: dis joint is based upon some fo' real, fo' real sh*t!

We hope that your local cinema has some good air condition ;-)
The S.P.A.C.E Crew wishes you lots of fun movies!
 

08.08.2018 • ANT-MAN IN TINY

It's been a couple of weeks now that the Ant-Man and the Wasp are whizzing over the big screens worldwide. And of course the latest MCU blockbuster is a success at the box office all over the globe. To celebrate that, Hot Toys just came up with another new announcement on ANT-MAN:

Back in 2015, Hot Toys released Ant-Man on Antony from the first movie as part of their »Movie Masterpiece Series Compact« line. This Miniature Collectible was very popular and sold out really fast. Now they are also offering such a set on part 2 - of course including Wasp! Aren't these great news, especially for those of you who might have missed the first set ;-)

06.08.2018 • R.I.P., SERVER...

We are under a technical state of emergency today... :-(

Our server passed away this morning, probably because of the extreme temperatures! That's why your orders and the communication with us may be a bit delayed. We ask for your understanding and hope that everything will be working smoothly again by tomorrow night.

Your S.P.A.C.E Crew

01.08.2018 • PRODUCT OF THE MONTH AUGUST 2018

This time we decided to choose a pretty unorthodox collectible as »Product of the Month«: the ASHY SLASHY Prop Replica by NECA. This collector's item is not only intended to be a decorative article, but actually as a functional hand puppet.

It was realistically recreated from the original version from ASH VS. EVIL DEAD. The arms of the puppet can be positioned as you like by articulation points and the huge mouth is controlled by movement of your hand.

Now you can make the puppets dance - just like Bruce Campbell ;-)

31.07.2018 • WELCOME TO THE LOSER'S CLUB!

We have to be patient and wait for another year to see chapter 2 of Stephen King's »It« remake. But we are very excited, especially because there appeared a first picture of the grown-up members of the Loser´s Club from the set!

The picture was uploaded on Twitter and it shows Jessica Chastain as Beverly Marsh, James McAvoy as Bill Denbrough, Bill Hader as Richie Tozier, Isaiah Mustafa as Mike Hanlon, James Ransone as Eddie Kaspbrak and Jay Ryan as Ben Hanscom :-)

30.07.2018 • TIME FOR EPISODE 9

There are super hot news for all STAR WARS fans: the shooting of Episode 9 will start this week!

Under direction of J.J. Abrams old acquaintances will jump in their roles again for the third part of the sequels. Mark Hamill is definitely going to be involved again - also Billy Dee Williams will take part in Episode 9 as Lando Calrissian. Due to the fact that Carrie Fisher should also be a part of the trilogy conclusion, they will fall back on unreleased footage shot for »The Force Awakens« instead of conjuring Leia to the screen by CGI or something else.

We think this is magnificent and we are of course super excited to what J.J. Abrams will have to show us (probably) by December 2019...

26.07.2018 • FINALLY...

Finally also here in Germany we are getting the next firecracker from the MCU. ANT-MAN AND THE WASP hits the theaters with 3 weeks “delay”. Especially we are excited about the role of Michelle Pfeiffer and of course about Evangeline Lilly in her wasp outfit.

The trailers did promise a lot and the critics are also pretty positive. Going to the movies with an air conditioned cinema hall is really a good alternative considering the sauna temperatures outside, or what do you think? ;-)

Who wants to have the insect duo as 1/6 figures from Hot Toys in his or her collection can pre-order them here.

25.07.2018 • ALITA: BATTLE ANGEL

We have to admit that the live action adaptation of ALITA: BATTLE ANGEL wasn't really on our radar so far. So during the Comic Con we opened our eyes pretty wide... ;-)

The both famous manufacturers HOT TOYS and PRIME1 presented their versions of Alita (played by Rosa Salazar). In addition to that Fox published the second trailer of the Manga based movie by director Robert Rodriguez yesterday.

Nobody less than James Cameron is in charge of the script, Christoph Waltz is playing the scientist Dr. Ido - ideal prerequisites for a box office success. The film will hit the movies on December 20th.

16.07.2018 • OUR SDCC2018 FEATURE

In only a few days it’s happening again: San Diego in the south of California will be the center of pop culture, because SAN DIEGO COMIC CON will hype us fans and collectors :-)

This week everything will be about the SDCC2018 of course. As always we are going to screen the news, highlight and the many pictures of the Con for you and put together everything interesting in our feature.

This year’s SDCC exclusives are, in our opinion, not that spectacular (at least the things we got to see so far), but of course we will direct our sensors towards the convention centre. Take a look at the SDCC Exclusive checklist at AWESOME TOY BLOG or the SDCC BLOG! and let us know which exclusive which exclusive is turns you on the most…

12.07.2018 • ROBOCOP RETURNS

At the beginning of the year it was only a speculation and now it really comes true: we will get a direct sequel of the 80's classics »RoboCop«.

The project is called ROBOCOP RETURNS and it will indeed be a continuation of the original RoboCop from 1987. So both the sequels RoboCop 2 and RoboCop 3 as well as the remake from 2014 are disregarded completely. Director will be nobody less than Neill Blomkamp, creator of DISTRICT 9. That could turn out to be something great...

11.07.2018 • JOAQUIN JOKER

Warner did confirm that there will be a JOKER origins movie with Joaquin Phoenix in the main role. The film shooting will start in 2018, but there is no cinema release date yet.

Todd Phillips (i.a. creator of HANGOVER) will be director, Martin Scorsese - who was originally intended as producer - will not be on board though.

09.07.2018 • DP UNCUT?

There will be shown an uncut version of DEADPOOL 2 at this year's San Diego Comic Con. This will not just be an "extended cut" - which is considered safe - but an once more enlarged "super-duper special screening" of the blockbuster.

If it will be played only once or if it will be released for our home theaters on Blu-ray and DVD is not known yet - but we definitely hope so ;-)

05.07.2018 • THE S.P.A.C.E TOP 5 AT THE MOVIES IN JULY

The summer slump at the movies still continues noticeably and because of the World Cup the few highlights are rather moved to the end of the month. Nevertheless we selected several - surely worth watching - movies for you and packed them into our top 5.

Number 5:
SKYSCRAPER | release date:
There's almost no cinema month without Dwayne Johnson - here he slips into his role of a former FBI agent and veteran who is hold accountable for a fire at one of the tallest and safest buildings of the world. He has to prove his innocence and at the same time his family is inside the inferno. So this time it will more of a dramatic »The Rock« action again.

Number 4:
THE FIRST PURGE | release date:
This fourth part of the franchise is showing the first purge night in the US and how the "tradition" of the anarchy was even possible. It's definitely going to be bloody, but for all of you that are alright with this kind of action and not so profound stories, this will be fine.

Number 3:
HOTEL ARTEMIS | release date:
In the year 2028 there is a civil war going on at Los Angeles and the streets are full of violence. In a hospital - disguised as the "Hotel Artemis" - a nurse (Jodie Foster) takes care of wounded gangsters and Dave Bautista watches out that everybody follows the rules.

Number 2:
SICARIO: DAY OF THE SOLDADO | release date:
The second part of SICARIO guarantees a lot of action. Matt Graver (Josh Brolin) and Alejandro (Benicio Del Toro) are facing the toughest guys in a war of Mexican drug cartels. Watching the trailers you can get ready for something great - and already the first part was really awesome.

Number 1:
ANT-MAN AND THE WASP | release date: 26.04.2018
The highlight of July will be of course the sequel of Ant-Man. This time the Ant-Man (Paul Rudd) is supported by a Wasp-Lady (Evangeline Lilly) and what we saw from the trailers was desiring us for more. The combination of the special kind of action - created by the extreme resizing - and the hilarious gags did excite us already at the first part. We hope that it will continue like that. In the US the film hits the movies tomorrow and in Germany we have to wait another three weeks...


The S.P.A.C.E Crew wishes you good times at the movies!

04.07.2018 • 1/6 COLLECTORS: WELCOME TO PARADISE

Today was the day: the new huge 1/6 shipment from Asia did arrive in our headquarter!

Until we over everything, it may take 1-2 days - so please be a bit patient with us :) And you should definitely keep an eye on our »Just arrived« section on our website.

02.07.2018 • PRODUCT OF THE MONTH JULY 2018

July has just started and that means we choose our new product of the month.

This time we decided to pick something for all of you 80's fans or better of its movie classics: Kurt Russell JACK BURTON from »Big Trouble in Little China« in 1/6 Scale by SIDESHOW - a really special collectible for another John Carpenter cult film!

28.06.2018 • THE ULTIMATE PREDATOR

Recently the new trailer of THE PREDATOR - strangely in Germany it is called »Predator: Upgrade« - was released.

At the same time NECA presented the first official produkt pictures of the ULTIMATE PREDATOR, which you can already find online for pre-order by the way.

What do you expect of the »ultimate« Predator? We at least think that the second trailer looks much better than the first one.

26.06.2018 • THE REAL SARAH CONNOR RETURNS

The first pictures from the set of the next - and meanwhile sixth - TERMINATOR movie have reached the internet. Chronologically the film is a direct continuation of »Judgement Day«. James Cameron even supplies the story and Tim Miller (Deadpool) is going to be the director.

On this snapshot we get to see Linda Hamilton in her original role of Sarah Connor and it seems as if - 27 years later - she still has it.

25.06.2018 • NO SPIDER-MAN: HOMECOMING 2

Tom Holland accidently revealed the title of the »Spider-Man: Homecoming« sequel.

The second movie is supposed to be not just called »Homecoming 2«, but »Spider-Man: Far From Home« and it will hit the movies in July 2019.

21.06.2018 • NO MORE STAR WARS STORIES?

It seems as if after the pretty big flop of SOLO: A STAR WARS STORY, Disney and Lucasfilm decided not to shoot any more spin-offs for the moment.

The full concentration shall be on Episode 9.

Therefore the spin-offs of Obi-Wan Kenobi and Boba Fett will be put on ice for now. Let’s see, if - and if yes, how long - they will stick to it.

20.06.2018 • SDCC IS NEAR

In 4 weeks the San Diego Comic Con is going to open its gates again.

We will keep you updated with the hottest news and highlights before and during the Comic Con.

So the best thing you could do is to keep an eye on our newsticker, newsletter, Facebook and Instagram ;-)

18.06.2018 • BLACK LABEL - WHITE KNIGHT

In March DC Comics announced a brand-new publishing imprint named "DC Black Label".
Now DC revealed that the first title to bear the imprint name and logo will be Sean Murphy’s "Batman: White Knight", which will hit comic shops in October.

14.06.2018 • EWAN MCGREGOR PLAYS DANNY IN DOCTOR SLEEP

DOCTOR SLEEP, the sequel of Stephen King's timeless masterpiece »Shining« will now be filmed too with Ewan McGregor, as Danny, in the leading role.

Mike Flanagen is supposed to do the direction. But we don't know yet, when the Horror-Movie will be released on the big screen.

13.06.2018 • TIM BURTON'S DUMBO

Already some time ago, DISNEY confirmed some of their titels to be converted into live action movies. Among them was DUMBO - and we now get to see the first teaser of the movie:

https://youtu.be/-QPdRfqTnt4

No less than Tim Burton, one of the most outstanding visionaries among film makers of our time, will take place on the director's chair. He will bring Dumbo to life with a very promising cast and the music from Danny Elfman. That assures goose bumps not only for our eyes, but also for our ears! And we actually did not know so far that it's possible to even get the goose bumps in the eyes ;-)

12.06.2018 • ASIA COMIC CON 2018

From June 8th to 10th the ASIA COMIC CON took place in Bangkok -  brands like PRIME1 STUDIO, HOT TOYS and BANDAI were represented there.

You can find a large foto album including almost 400 pictures from the con on Facebook. Every collector's heart is beating faster here, isn't it? ;-)

11.06.2018 • VERY EXCLUSIVE

Attention, MASTERS OF THE UNIVERSE fans! There is going to come something really exclusive towards you this summer...

We mustn't reveal too much at the moment, but on June 30th the cat will be let out of the bag - namely at the booth of »Die Welt der Meister Magazin« at Hörmich 2018.

All we want to say right now is: our Shared Exclusive will NOT be a radio play. Otherwise we would call ourselves space-radioplays.de ;-)

07.06.2018 • THE S.P.A.C.E TOP 5 AT THE MOVIES IN JUNE

With the cinema June comes also the notorious summer slump. In addition to that, the Football World Cup is around the corner which will compete to all film releases of course. So we aren't expecting a lot of highlights or big names, however we did arrange our Top 5 of the month for you:

Number 5:
OCEAN'S 8 | release date: 21.06.2018
After Ocean's 11, 12 und 13 we will get the full girl power now. Debbie Ocean (Sandra Bullock), Danny Ocean's sister shows together with her companions Cate Blanchett, Anne Hathaway, Rihanna aso. that there are indeed also many female crooks out there ;-)

Number 4:
THE RIDER | release date: 21.06.2018
A very profound drama about a rodeo cowboy who suffered head injuries after an accident. But he keeps on fighting to get back to the saddle. Chinese director Chloé Zhao is defining her very own western genre here which is impressive.

Number 3:
GOODBYE CHRISTOPHER ROBIN | release date: 07.06.2018
1977 the animated film »The many Adventures of Winnie the Pooh« was released by Disney - about 40 years later we get to see this biopic about the inventor of the bear, A. A. Milne. The emotional story about the children's book author is convincingly told by Domhnall Gleeson and Margot Robbie in the main roles.

Number 2:
HEREDITARY | release date: 14.06.2018
Next week a gripping horror thriller will come to the big screen. After the grandmother passed away, a blameless family is haunted by shocking incidents, that lead back to a dark legacy of their ancestors. That looks extremely creepy and also the critics are very good.

Number 1:
JURASSIC WORLD 2 - FALLEN KINGDOM | release date: 06.06.2018
Our first place of June already started yesterday - the next part of the legendary dinosaur franchise. Chris Pratt, Bryce Dallas Howard and Co. are this time trying to rescue the dinos - that are now living seclusive in the jungle - from a volcanic eruption on Nublar Island and prevent their extinction. While doing so they come across a huge conspiracy that could plunge the whole planet into chaos...
We already showed you the trailers and we were partly really flashed about what we could expect from JURASSIC WORLD 2. Besides the CGI effects that will probably outshine everything previous, the new part seems to have much more creepy-shocker-moments and more excitement overall.

So, if you are pushed into the movie theater during such hot weather conditions - have a good time!

06.06.2018 • DECEMBER AWAKENS

Today we once again have two new and interesting trailers for you that are definitely worth a click:

First there is a first trailer of BUMBLEBEE - a TRANSFORMERS spin-off, which won't be the last one. The story of the little yellow Beetle includes "young star" Hailee Steinfeld and "old star" John Cena and will hit theaters just before Christmas this year.

Trailer: https://youtu.be/fAIX12F6958

Looks really lovely and could be a bright spot in this franchise.


Also in December the "Lord of the Rings" creator Peter Jackson is going to present an epic apocalyptic opus with MORTAL ENGINES. The grandmaster is not only the producer, but also the co-author of the script.
Finally we get to see the movie's first real trailer - however we are not really sure about what it will bring. Visually it will be a cracker, but the story...? Watch it yourself:

Trailer: https://youtu.be/IRsFc2gguEg

05.06.2018 • SUPPLIES FOR OUR HEADQUARTER

We finally received some highlights today, which we are waiting for a long time – and it was definitely worth waiting. Besides our current Product of the Month we also got Captain Jack Sparrow, the newest DX-Figure by HOT TOYS after years.
Sideshow also came down handsomely with the new Zatanna Premium Format Figure and the gigantic Legendary Scale Stormtrooper. We highly recommend you to take a look at our new arrived products on our website.

But don’t waist too much time – some collectibles are nearly out of stock!

01.06.2018 • PRODUCT OF THE MONTH JUNE 2018

In June, we had a really hard choice, because we had a huge variety of title contenders arriving in our warehouse. Last but not least an action-figure from HOT TOYS - better said our Tobi with the vicious smile and his suggestion - did win through:

We elected the Videogame Masterpiece Figure of Joker from Rocksteady Studios’ Videogame-Hit BATMAN: ARKHAM ASYLUM, a worthy and extremely detailed collectible, as our product of the month.
JOKER the CLOWN PRINCE OF CRIME comes, as usual for Hot Toys, with a lot of accessories and a special Arkam Asylum backdrop. The head sculpt, the costume and the workmanship are high-quality, and we can contend this figure can’t be missed in any good DC or Batman collection. And everybody who loved the game can’t get by this collectible anyways ;-)

We are waiting for our incoming shipment and to date we have a few pieces left...

30.05.2018 • THE NEW SPAWN

Already some time ago, the good Todd McFarlane confirmed that he would be working on a remake of his own SPAWN movie in collaboration with »Blumhouse«. Now just a couple of hours ago, Todd released the first big bang about this project:

The amazing actor and Academy Award winner JAMIE FOXX will take the lead role and bring the Al Simmons aka Spawn to life in a surely outstanding way. It will take some time until the movie gets to hit cinemas, but the kick-off is definately done now - awesome!
 

28.05.2018 • THE SHAPE OF GUILLERMO IN 8 INCH

In the last years, we got to see a couple of collectibles from directors and film makers. Let's think back to NECA's Quentin Tarantino on »The Hateful Eight« lline lately or miscellaneous Peter Jackson figures.

Now NECA will bring us another grand master of film as an action-figure for our shelves - Guillermo del Toro! The outstanding director and Academy Award winner will be released as a 8" Figural Doll by NECA in collaboration with »Entertainment Earth« and he will exclusively be available at this year's San Diego Comic Con in an edition of 2,000 pieces probably!

We think that Guillermo del Toro is an absolut icon who definately deserves a little monument in form of a Mini-Me. Really cool idea, NECA!

Of course we will do our best to grab some pieces of this surely sought-after figure for you...
 

24.05.2018 • ANOTHER STAR WARS STORY

SOLO: A STAR WARS STORY did celebrate its premiere yesterday and hits theaters today. Now everybody can make himself an image about Aldan Ehrenreich's (previously doubted) acting abilities. Share your opinions about that with us!

in the course of our anticipation we have already been waiting for the releases of new collectibles. Hot Toys fulfilled our wish just in time: the main character HAN SOLO was released just this morning. You will find the 1/6 Movie Masterpiece figure of Aldan Ehrenreich in two versions at our shop for pre-order by tomorrow at the latest.

We hope, or rather we assume, that Han will not be the only character and we are counting on more releases – at least Han’s buddies Chewbacca and Lando would be desirable ;-)

23.05.2018 • THE DC-COLLECTION BY SIDESHOW

At the beginning of 2018 SIDESHOW fired the starting gun for their new »DC Premium Format Figure« collection. Meanwhile there are released six fantastically implemented characters from the DC Universe and already listed for pre-order:

Joker // Harley Quinn // Batman // Wonder Woman // Superman // Poison Ivy

Those who want to see more than the first pictures should definitely watch the exclusive »behind the scenes« video from BLEEDING COOL!

Extremely impressive what you can see there – we can barely wait until the first produced statue arrives in our headquarter ;-)

22.05.2018 • A HERO WILL RISE

MASTERS OF THE UNIVERSE fans watch out! It was now officially announced that there will be a reboot of the 80s-classic »She-Ra«. Netflix (who else?) is going to produce the animation series SHE-RA AND THE PRINCESSES OF POWER together with DreamWorks and it will be released already this year.

The description of Netflix reads as follows: "In this reboot of the '80s series, a magic sword transforms an orphan girl into warrior She-Ra, who unites a rebellion to fight against evil."

Sounds like a true to original reissue of the series around She-Ra - but it will be probably adjusted to a modern audience. Her twin brother He-Man isn't mentioned with a single word so far, but however the grim Hordak will most likely be part of it.

We are excited... also regarding the dubbing voices. Surely you will find more news from Etheria here soon and we keep you posted on this!

17.05.2018 • 20TH CENTURY FOXPOOL

This week is of course characterized by the cynical mutant DEADPOOL. Today we have a genius find from the web for you: on Walmart's shelves in the US you can find various Blu-ray titles by 20th Century Fox (including e.g. TERMINATOR, FIGHT CLUB, LOGAN, PREDATOR and X-MEN) - as a Deadpool-photobomb-edition!

The boxes are covered in an additional case which shows the original cover interpreted in a Deadpool style. Fabulous idea, Fox! But please also delight us with those special editions here in Europe ;-)

16.05.2018 • DON'T CALL IT A COMEBACK

Guess who's back! The most unorthodox superhero - or let's say anti-hero - of the entire Marvel Universe is back to the big screen. Wade Wilson aka Deadpool aka DP aka Mr. Pool is probably around the corner again with a lot of black humor and rough spells - that's why we love him so much!

The critics to the sequel are very positive, many of them say, the film is better than the predecessor.

Here are the current rankings:

- IMDb: 8,6/10 stars at 7.300 votes
- Rotten Tomatoes: 87% at 120 reviews
- Metacritic: 68/100

Our presumption: those who celebrated part 1 will also celebrate part 2; those who couldn't deal with part 1 ("Wait, that is actually possible?!") will also struggle with part 2.

By the way - have you already seen the brand new 1/6 scale Deadpool figure (including a unicorn and high heels) by Hot Toys? Of course you can already pre-order it here.

14.05.2018 • SOLO'S PREMIERE AT CANNES

Last Thursday the world premiere of »Solo: A Star Wars Story« took place at Cannes. The whole star-line-up around Alden Ehrenreich has been on the red carpet - but those who tried to get the "original Han" Harrison Ford in front of their lenses, got disappointed. According to Ford himself, he didn't visit the event because he did not want to steal the actors' - especially the young Solo's - show. He did watch the film already though and he thinks it's "phenomenal".

The overall critics after the premiere were completely positive, even though not enthusiastic. It seems that Ehrenreich played his role fantastically, unlike many people have expected. He didn't try to imitate the young Harrison Ford but lend the character its own special charm.

Also director of »Star Wars: Episode VIII«, Rian Johnson, expressed his thoughts on his colleague Ron Howard's movie - he thinks it's great. But lots of Star Wars fans won't be convinced by that ;-) From next Thursday on, we finally can form an opinion ourselves.

11.05.2018 • LUXOR FANTASTIC 3

Tomorrow, the 3rd LUXOR FANTASTIC will take place at the Luxor Filmpalast in Bensheim, Germany. This will be a very special event for all toy collectors and comic and movie enthusiasts. Besides a dealer area throughout the main hall which invites you to do some shopping, you can also make a look through their own toy museum or join the panels and the show.

For the first time we will also be on board! Stop by at a small but fine booth for a small talk or just a "hello" :-)

Another highlight of the day will be the birth hour of a whole new project which was raised along others also by our friends from »Choking Hazard TV« lately - RETROHELDEN. More about that shortly or tomorrow, premiering in Bensheim at LUXOR FANTASTIC 3. Come over ;-)

Here the most important links for more infos:

09.05.2018 • THE S.P.A.C.E TOP 5 AT THE MOVIES IN MAY

Merry month of May puts forward 5 Thursdays at the movies - including two top blockbusters. How about visiting the movie theater tomorrow, on Ascension Day?

Number 5:
RAMPAGE | release date: 10.05.2018
You can expect an action-packed and emotional gorilla story with primatologist Dwayne Johnson. The eponym of this film is the 80s-arcade-classic „Rampage“ - the result is quite a sparse story, but at the same time it's just good and simple popcorn cinema with great CGI effects.

Number 4:
HOSTILES | release date: 31.05.2018
A visually stunning Western drama by director Scott Cooper with a convincing Christian Bale as "Indian hating" army officer in the main role. The release in Germany is extremely late - in the US it already hit theaters in January...

Number 3:
ONLY THE BRAVE | release date: 03.05.2018
The heroic story about a crew of fire fighters, that is trained to risk their lives in a devastating forest fire in Arizona as so called 'hotshots', is based on true incidents. It is not told too patriotic at all, and Thanos, uh Josh Brolin, again shows a great acting performance in Joseph Kosinski's (i.a. Tron: Legacy, Oblivion) perhaps best movie ever.

Number 2:
SOLO: A STAR WARS STORY | release date: 24.05.2018
Ron Howard's »Star Wars« spin-off with Alden Ehrenreich, Emilia Clarke, Woody Harrelson and many others is already dividing the fan base and will probably do so further on. The trailers have improved from the first to the last and we can definitely expect a first quality blockbuster! But it has to prove first, if the story about Han Solo and Chewie can give us a new »Rogue One« experience or if it will "only" be a great movie. The world premiere will be next week within the Cannes Film Festival, by the way.

Number 1:
DEADPOOL 2 | release date: 17.05.2018
We are super hyper about this sequel of one of our favorite movies of the last years. The range of freaky and absurd teasers with Ryan Reynolds and his new X-Force, which are facing Thanos, uh Josh Brolin, as Cable this time, always put us a big smile upon our faces. We hope that Marvel does not overplay DP's genius humor from the first part and let it drift off into ridiculousness - let's wait and see, and not spoiling the anticipation of next Thursday :-) The reunion with Wade Wilson will be THE highlight for us this May!

The S.P.A.C.E Crew wishes you good times at the movies!

08.05.2018 • CANNES WITHOUT NETFLIX

Today is the first day of the 71st Cannes Film Festival. And guess who's not invited? Netflix.

Last year, the head of the festival, Thierry Frémaux, invited two great in-house productions by the streaming provider to the official competition. The problem here: in France you can only offer movies on streaming platforms three years after their release at the theaters. So in French cinemas, the films weren't even played - makes sense, because they were produced for immediate streaming.

There was a big outcry in France after that - you HAVE TO show outstanding movies in the public theaters, otherwise they can not make it into people's minds and also into cinematic history. That's a very romantic view by the Frenchmen. So this time, there's a rule that a movie participating at the competition has to be played at the movies afterwards. That's why you can basically say, Netflix was excluded from the film festival.

It seems as the famous festival wants to do a favor to French cinema operators - and at the same time they try to weaken the giants of streaming. Romantic, as we said...

What do you think - should just be any good movies get honored at such competitions, no matter if it's a classic cinema production or not?

07.05.2018 • RAMBO NO. 5

After the 4th part of the RAMBO franchise from 2008 there have always been speculations about a sequel or spin-offs of the legendary film series - with or without Sylvester Stallone.

Now it seems as if the almost 72 years old Sly will indeed play the role of John Rombo for a very last time. In RAMBO 5 he may be facing Mexico's biggest drug cartels. According to Screen Daily the filming could already start in September 2018 - director will probably be somebody else though.

Maybe we will get an official confirmation this week within the film festival in Cannes - let's see ;-) What do you think about a 5th part?

03.05.2018 • MARVEL BREAKS THE RECORDS

As expected, »Avengers: Infinity War« made the box offices all around the planet glow on the opening weekend. In the US and Canada the Marvel blockbuster brought in over 250 million dollars and in the other countries 380 million dollars. Globally that's an unprecedented sum of over 630 million dollars - record! And China isn't even involved in that numbers, because the release date there will be next week. In Germany the film at least attracted over one million people to visit the movies.

Kevin Feige, president of Marvel Studios, addressed a thank-you-letter in the name of everybody involved in the 300-million-dollar-project to all the fans that made this record possible.

Also Star Wars, or rather Lucasfilm congratulated Marvel on the huge success with a little artwork that shows Rey handing over a lightsaber to Iron Man. There's also a handwritten (or at least concerning the look) message on it - lovely gesture :-)

02.05.2018 • PRODUCT OF THE MONTH MAY 2018

The special feature about Kotobukiya's BISHOUJO series is the Manga style realization of classic characters. This second version of DC's SUPERGIRL PVC statue in its sexy pose is a result of a sketch by the Japanese illustrator Shunya Yamashita.

What first strikes the eye is the flashy painting which is basically kept in the Supergirl's colors red and blue and in addition it is completed by golden applications.

The candy-red cape with a golden hem looks like it's literally flowing along with the wind - as well as the short skirt of her slinky outfit and her blonde mane. That's why the figure gets an amazing dynamic - characteristic KOTO!

Also the quality of the painting is really fine and precisely crafted for the size (1/7 scale), just like we are used to it from Kotobukiya. The detailed sculpting makes the little statue look incredibly vivid and not flat or artificial at all.

This Supergirl is truly super cute and super sexy - a dignified product of the month ;-)

30.04.2018 • BECOME THE TOMB RAIDER

Last Friday, SQUARE ENIX sweetened the weekend of all you gamers and Lara Croft fans a lot, because the brand new trailer of the next game of the TOMB RAIDER franchise was revealed!

SHADOW OF THE TOMB RAIDER will be the title of the next part and it will be released on 14th September. You should definately take a look at the trailer! The graphics, the cut and the atmosphere will let you think that it's from a cinema blockbuster...

https://youtu.be/j9_8250Kndk

26.04.2018 • LET THE INFINITY WAR BEGIN

AVENGERS: INFINITY WAR - most of the critics are of the same opinion: this movie is an absolutely epic spectacle. The battles are of an unprecedented manner - and in addition there are lots of emotionally and at the same time groundbreaking incidents.
Josh Brolin convinces in his role of the villain Thanos. It also seems like every superhero occupies his individual role and comes into his own inspite of the huge amount of characters.

Of course there are probably some single weaknesses or long-winded scenes, but due to the film's length of more than two and a half hours, who really wants to judge the Russo brothers for that...

The common rankings are like that at the moment:

- IMDb: 9,2 at 28.000 votes

- Rotten Tomatoes: 86% at 162 reviews

- Metacritic "only" 68/100, but that's about the score of the first two parts of Avengers

As always, you have to watch the movie your own to form an opinion. The S.P.A.C.E crew will visit the cinema tonight to do exactly that.

24.04.2018 • EMBRACE YOUR INNER ANTI-HERO

VENOM is back - after the short teaser that Sony presented us about two months ago, now there is the first full trailer for the solo film of Marvel's anti hero, that we only know from Spider-Man yet.

Carlton Drake is testing alien symbiotes to humans and the reporter Eddie Brock (played by Tom Hardy) comes in contact with one of those creatures when doing the researches for these tests. Suddenly he has a voice in his head and achieves supernatural powers, which he is able with to completely transform into the »Venom«.

Spider-Man does not show up in the trailer, but that doesn't mean that he isn't involved at all. We will have to wait for all the details until October when VENOM is going to hit theaters. What you can already tell: it's going to get dark - that's what the trailer and poster are promising...

23.04.2018 • HALLOWEEN 2018

Man, that looks mean and dark - a very old looking Michael Myers (or rather his mask) on a plain black background. That's how the first official poster of the 8th sequel of the horror classic HALLOWEEN looks like.

40 years after the first part, Nick Castle and Jamie Lee Curtis will return in their original roles to the big screen - right in time for Halloween 2018. Even John Carpenter at his age of 70 will be a part of the movie, although it will be (just) within the soundtrack.

So it can't take that long anymore until we will get to see the first, probably very dark, trailer.

20.04.2018 • KRATOS IS BACK IN THE GAME

Today is a day to party for all the Kratos fans – the newest GOD OF WAR part was released today.

Even in the S.P.A.C.E Headquarter the game was already delivered :-) and we are thrilled about the story of the Spartan, especially after the consistently rave reviews.

Who of you will also be playing the game today?

19.04.2018 • ONE WEEK TO GO UNTIL THE INFINITY WAR

It's the final Countdown... One more week to go until the Infinity War is going to break out. That means two and a half hours of superhero action as we have NEVER seen it before.

In advance of AVENGERS 3 Marvel now published a featurette of the MCU's 10 year success story, exactly from the time on when Iron Man started at the movies. A very emotional clip which is absolutely worth watching!

https://youtu.be/trcditUaQJg

Another interesting fact: ostensibly nobody of the actors has actually set eyes on the entire script. That's how it was ensured that only a few people know the exact story of the movie. In addition to that there are guys like Robert Downey Jr. who partially didn't even read their own particular part of the script completely and almost went into the shooting spontaneously. That's just the way, superheroes are :-)

There are also new rumors regarding the storyline: a major character will die in the first 5 minutes of the film. That's all we (possibly) know - and maybe also we don't wanna know...

18.04.2018 • THE PARK IS GONE

It was already teased that the new - and at the same time final - trailer of JURASSIC WORLD: FALLEN KINGODM will be released today. And Universal kept its word ;-)

Also this third preview emphasizes that the newest part of the dinosaur franchise is going to be full of suspense. Already the scenes with the gigantic Mosasaur will take your breath away. Jason Statham with his Meg(alodon) can pack his bags straight away ;-)

Official release date in the US will be June 22, but in Germany we will have it on the big screen even 2 weeks earlier.

17.04.2018 • COSPLAYED FOR THE LAST TIME

On April 27 a real Nerd Trash movie called »Supercon« will start in the US. Of course we don't want to keep the brand new trailer away from you.

The film makes fun of the current hype about star guests at conventions and the related fan rip-off with autographs and photos. In the style of »Ocean's Eleven«, a small group of former comic book artists and TV stars wants to scam the big earnings of the star guest Adam King. Obviously everything is getting out of control - but check it out yourself:

https://youtu.be/yFq4S6q12z0

Unfortunately there isn't an information about a possible release in Europe, but in the US the movie actually tries to compete with AVENGERS. Courageous... ;-)

12.04.2018 • THE S.P.A.C.E TOP 5 AT THE MOVIES IN APRIL

It's thursday - time for the movies! From now on, every month we will put together our personal top 5 ranking of new movies playing at the cinemas for you. As always we will directly include the appropriate trailers. Tell us your expectations, your feedback, any insider tips or your favorites of the month on Facebook and Instagram :-)

Number 5:
YOU WERE NEVER REALLY HERE | release date: 26.04.2018
Won multiple awards at the Cannes film festival, as a harsh but profound action movie of an ice-cold hitman who rescues young girls from forced prostitution.

Number 4:
GHOST STORIES | release date: 19.04.2018
Looks like an extremely spooky horror film - it's about a skeptic that investigates paranormal activities to refute them. But the whole thing turns into his nightmare...

Number 3:
A QUIET PLACE | release date: 12.04.2018
An intense scenario after the invasion of aliens, which are attracted by noises: someone who makes a sound will be hunted and killed. Already the trailers are able to communicate this oppressive feeling incredibly!

Number 2:
READY PLAYER ONE | release date: 05.04.2018
Actually we don't have to say much about this movie. Many of you will have already seen Spielberg's master piece. Those of you who haven't should make it up as soon as possible - or even repeat it 2 times ;-)

Number 1:
AVENGERS 3: INFINITY WAR | release date: 26.04.2018
This long-awaited blockbuster by the Russo brothers of course has to be number one in April. As surely many of you, we are unbelievably excited and crazy for that unprecedented battle of superheroes.
Along the last weeks and months we fed you with all trailers, news and collectibles of the movie - now it's really about time for the upcoming flagship of the MCU to hit the big screen!

The S.P.A.C.E Crew wishes you good times at the movies!

11.04.2018 • THE MISSING COMPANION

Lord of the Rings fans and 1/6 collectors will probably hype our today's news, because the Asian manufacturer ASMUS TOYS just revealed their photo gallery of their brand new 1/6 scale GIMLI figure!

Somehow incredible, how long we had to wait for a worthy conversion of the famous dwarf in this scale. But according to the first images, the long wait will be paying off, because the details that Asmus comes along with here are just breath taking!

Of course you will find Gimli, Son of Glóin soon for pre-order on our website. It seems that he will be shipping in May already and his edition size will be set on 1,500 pieces worldwide only.

09.04.2018 • SOLO, A STAR WARS WESTERN?

This morning the brand new trailer of SOLO: A STAR WARS STORY went online! It's the first (and probably final) wholesome trailer with about two and a half minutes length:

https://youtu.be/jPEYpryMp2s

This clip somehow reminds of a western (especially regarding musical backdrop and editing) - in fact a pretty action-packed one. Of course this trailer is worth watching and it absolutely makes us curious to Ron Howard’s final piece of work. It remains exciting if SOLO will have a lot of slapstick or even space-western style in it, or if it will have a similar charm like ROGUE ONE. According to us you can't really figure out the exact style of the film from the preview. What do you think?

05.04.2018 • THE OASIS IS OPEN

Today is the official release date of READY PLAYER ONE, Steven Spielberg's latest Sci-Fi epic!

The trailers were all promising and already shared some intense goosebump moments... We're pretty sure that this movie will be one of this year's highlights.

We are very looking forward to see it on the big screen. How about you? Who of you already got the tickets?

04.04.2018 • DANNY TREJO IN CAST FROM »3 FROM HELL«

Rob Zombie is working on the sequel of »House of 1000 Corpses« and »The Devil´s Reject«, called »3 from Hell«, for a few weeks now.
Among others, he revealed that Sheri Moon Zombie, Bill Moseley and Sid Haig joined the cast of this splatter movie.
Yesterday, the rock musician and director also announced the comeback of Danny Trejo as Rondo for the sequel.

For now we don´t have a release date of the bloody horror movie.
But we will be happy to see the well-known faces on the screen again.

03.04.2018 • PRODUCT OF THE MONTH APRIL 2018

In April, we are placing a true highness on the S.P.A.C.E throne, namely Daenerys Targaryen from the HBO hit show »Game of Thrones«. The fully poseable 1/6 scale version of Daenerys was realized by Threezero in full detail and it captures the likeness of Emilia Clarke perfectly. Along with her, the Mother of Dragon has her favorite Drogon and a couple of more accessories.

We got along pretty fast that she is worth becoming our product of the month. Daenerys will be available from stock within the next few days and she definately has to be part of every serious Game of Thrones collection.

28.03.2018 • THE TOYS THAT MADE US - SEASON 2

NETFLIX just confirmed to the news blog »Den of Geek!« that a second season of the retro-toys docu THE TOYS THAT MADE US is planned and ordered!

As Brian Volk-Weiss, founder of this project, revealed in the interview, season 2 will also focus on themes like »Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles«, »My Little Pony« and definately the »Power Rangers«. That sounds pretty amazing :-)

If you want to learn more - here's the link to the complete article on the »Den of Geek!« website:
https://bit.ly/2GeTsLW

27.03.2018 • SECURITY CHIEF CAROL DANVERS

Here in the headquarter, we actually thought to get a short first appearance of CAPTAIN MARVEL in the credits of »Guardians Vol. 2«... This hope was a bit hasty, but now Disney officially confirmed that the shooting of the next stand alone blockbuster of the MCU has started!

This picture of the set shows the incredible Brie Larson as security chief Carol Danvers when she was still in service of the US Air Force.

So let's be optimistic to get to see a first teaser soon ;-) But keep in mind: start at the movies will be March 7th 2019.

22.03.2018 • THE KARATE KID SAGA CONTINUES

34 years after the first part of the cult movie KARATE KID there's going to be a serial spin-off called COBRA KAI. The first real trailer is now released after we already got to see a few short teasers lately.

https://youtu.be/xCwwxNbtK6Y

In the US the first season will launch on May 2nd 2018. Because it is a »YouTube Red« Original Series, we don't know yet, when and where the series will be shown in Germany. YouTube's (quite young) streaming service is still not available here. So we hope, Amazon or Netflix will take charge of it and we as karate kids of the 80s can celebrate the reunion of Johnny and Danielsan soon :-)

20.03.2018 • THE SUPERHERO POTPOURRI

Parallel to the epic trailer last week, Disney also revealed an official movie poster on AVENGERS 3: INFINITY WAR. It shows all superheroes together on one artwork. Can you count them all? ;-)

In case Hot Toys or any other brand will really bring out every single character as a collectible, then you can prepare yourselves (and your cabins and showcases) for something big... Hidee Ho!
 

19.03.2018 • THE TOYS ARE BACK IN TOWN!

All of you comic-, movie- and toy figure fans should put a big mark on May 12th 2018: at the »LUXOR Filmpalast« in Bensheim, Germany, the 3. LUXOR FANTASTIC will take place - an event of a very special kind!

For the third time the unique »Luxor« cinema with its toy museum and the theme auditoriums will become a platform for all collectors and retro toys enthusiasts. On top of that, several YouTubers and bloggers will come together on one stage and will present a varied schedule. The guys of CHOKING HAZARD will guide through the show and also our S.P.A.C.E captain will have a little panel :-)

Of course we will also be in place with our own booth. Due to the fact that it's our premiere in Bensheim, we are pretty excited ourselves. And we're very looking forward to this weekend!

We are going to give you more information soon - or you can just check out the Facebook-Page of the event.

15.03.2018 • LARA IS BACK!

17 years after the cinema premiere of one of the most succesfull video game franchises of all time - TOMB RAIDER - the protagonist returns to the big screen! Now Lara Croft is represented by young actress Alicia Vikander und surely not only her predecessor Angelina Jolie, but also a huge fan base is excited, how the movie will perform...

The by now 21-years-old Lara Croft works as a bike courier in London instead of running her father's business empire. He disappeared 8 years ago and she decides to go and find him at his last whereabouts: on an island off the coast of Japan, where he explored a secret tomb.
For Lara this will be a journey dangerous to life and she will get to her physical and mental limits - and even beyond...

14.03.2018 • THE CRIMES OF GRINDELWALD

What an EPIC Teaser Trailer is that?!

We already knew that 2018 is going to be an awesome cinema year - but what approaches with J.K. Rowling's FANTASTIC BEASTS: THE CRIMES OF GRINDELWALD in November, will be an absolute firecracker. All of you Harry Potter fans will get massive goosebumps together with gasping for breath and/or misty eyes ;-)

Just watch it yourself:
https://youtu.be/5sEaYB4rLFQ

12.03.2018 • THANOS' SPRING CLEANING

The start of the ultimate Marvel spectacle AVENGERS 3: INFINITY WAR comes closer and closer. On April 26th the wait is finally over and we will get so see the two and a half hour firework of pure superhero-power.

The two screenwriters Christopher Markus and Stephen McFeely as well as »Iron Man« actor Robert Downey Jr. have now revealed that some of the characters may bite the dust though. Probably it will be Thanos who eliminates one or another hero out of the MCU irreversibly (yes, indeed without any chance of return!). Of course it remains a secret, who it will be about.

By the way: last week »Entertainment Weekly« published 15 different covers with alltogether 22 characters of »Infinity War«. Looks quite impressive, this sheer amount of superheroes, right? :-)

09.03.2018 • FROM JEDI TO JOKER AND BACK AGAIN

Yesterday, MARK HAMILL finally got his long-time overdue star on the »Hollywood Walk of Fame« in Los Angeles! The ceremony was accompanied by George Lucas, Harrison Ford and R2-D2- and of course numerous screaming fans.

If you'd like to watch the almost 40-minute live stream of Variety again - here is the link:
https://youtu.be/_wehU2l7jcs

Congratulations, Mark!
 

08.03.2018 • MARCH AT THE MOVIES

It is March, spring is (hopefully) almost here and the cinema month is full of new starts - including lots of awesome stuff. As always, we are going to give you an overview of the movies which we think are worth a visit.

Since last week the - on Sunday with an Oscar for Best Adapted Screenplay awarded - drama CALL ME BY YOUR NAME is flickering across the big screen. It‘s a brilliantly told „coming-of-age" film - of course with a lot of romantic but at the same time tremendously atmospheric.

For those of you who are more into the world of secret services, we have RED SPARROW on the note. Since last Thursday you get to see - maybe often overhyped - Jennifer Lawrence in the role of a Russian prima ballerina. Due to an injury she can‘t practice her sport anymore and so she takes the opportunity to be a part of the so called „Red Sparrow“ program. What are your thoughts on that thriller?

Today finally DEATH WISH starts! Nobody less than Eli Roth is responsible for the remake of the »Death Wish« classics. And Bruce Willis is back on the big screen - fitting greatly into the role of a vengeful family man. However Willis apparently performs weakly and faceless. But look out: it‘s still going to get very bloody! The R-rating seems to be absolutely legitimate.

From today on you can watch an incredibly fast story (based on true incidents) in MOLLY‘S GAME. It is about a professional skier (fantastically played by Jessica Chastain) who enters the poker business after her active career and rises to one of the biggest playmakers in Los Angeles. Director Aaron Sorkin also took Idris Elba on board and created an exciting biopic with a strong acting performance.

We are especially looking forward to next week, when TOMB RAIDER hits the movies. At first we were very sceptical about Alicia Vikander beeing the „new“ Lara Croft, but after the first film stills and trailers we are convinced to experience a very good and action-packed sequel of the franchise. That‘s going to rock!

On March 22nd it continues with robots-action in PACIFIC RIM: UPRISING. In the first part Guillermo del Toro was still director but this time he‘s only involved into screenplay and production. John Boyega, who‘s for example known as Finn in the last two »Star Wars« episodes, is now also part of the movie.

Furthermore we‘ll get so see wonderful Margot Robbie as the famous ice skater Tonya Harding in the biopic I, TONYA. She‘s blamed to be implicated into the assassination of her biggest competitor Nancy Kerrigan. Allison Janney received the Oscar for Best Performance by an Actress in a Supporting Role for playing Tonya‘s mother.

On the last Cinema-Thursday of the month there is a very special project by Steven Soderbergh. UNSANE is about the story of a young woman who suffers from a stalker. Somehow she goes into a psychiatry where she‘s held against her own will. She recognizes that a male nurse could be her stalker - reality or imagination? The special thing about this movie: it was completely shot on an iPhone! If Soderbergh's exciting experiment will be successful? We look forward!

07.03.2018 • THE GALACTIC BONUS!

Disney and Lucasfilm truly want to sweeten the STAR WARS fans' waiting time until the DVD / Blu-ray release of THE LAST JEDI end of April... two clips, which are going to be a part of the bonus footage, have been recently published on the web!

The first one shows an extended version of the very rousing lightsaber fight in Snoke's throne room with Rey and Kylo:
https://youtu.be/-WzFhl9lcMw

The second video is a really impressive "Behind-the-Scenes" cut with Andy Serkis in his role of Snoke:
https://youtu.be/CSKxrqzlhks

Even if EPISODE VIII was disappointing for some of you, there won't be an escape from the home theater version... and chances are good that we can take home a large and interesting package of extras :-)

05.03.2018 • 90. OSCARS

A few hours ago the 90th OSCAR awarding ended and again Los Angeles was the glamorous center of the world.

As we hoped and almost predicted, GUILLERMO DEL TORO deservedly received the trophy for the best direction. His masterpiece THE SHAPE OF WATER was enforcer of the evening with four Oscars, including the honoring as best motion picture.

That should definitely motivate Sideshow to produce an exclusive, extremely limited collectible (as they did with DEVIL'S BACKBONE) :-)

02.03.2018 • GREAT SCOTT!

Some folks are just blessed with inconceivable talent... so is Juliana Lepine, an exceptionally gifted sculptor, who found her royal discipline in creating 18 or 24cm tall figures. Although this is not the famous 1:6 scale, the works of the Brasilian artist are definately worth a click on her YouTube channel:
https://www.youtube.com/channel/UC6sTQA70lsTK7IjUF6plTFg

In her latest video, Juliana shows us a timelapse making of of her Doc Emmett Brown figure. Starting off from scratch with a blank human wire-skull, she's creating an incredibly realistic Mini-Me of Christopher LLoyd by using clay and other materials and components. This we can spoiler to all »Back to the Future« fans: Your jaw will drop!

Well - if you got hooked now, but prefer to stay in your standard scale (or just don't want to spend 3,000$), then we can put you off with the just arrived 1/6 Scale Dr. Emmett Brown Movie Masterpiece figure by Hot Toys. 'Cause this one is also pretty cool... :-)

01.03.2018 • PRODUCT OF THE MONTH MARCH 2018

During the whole day the »Awesome Mix Vol. 2« is booming out of the speakers at the S.P.A.C.E headquarter... because we are madly celebrating our new product of the month - the GROOT Life-Size Figure by Hot Toys!

Under product code LMS004 Hot Toys rolls out their fourth 1:1 collectible of the so called »Life-Size Masterpiece Series« (after Batman, the First Order Stormtrooper and Armored Batman) - and at the same time it's the first one that fits into your showcase ;-)

The little Groot is about 26cm (10") tall and movable at 15 points of articulation. Already the box will put a big smile on every »Guardians of the Galaxy« fan's face, because Hot Toys shows great attention to detail here. It of course gets even better when you unbox the figure itself. Three interchangeable face sculpts, alternative hands and an elaborately tailored Ravagers outfit give you numerous opportunities to present everybody's favorite appropriately to the movie. You are definitely going to have fun - and don't forget: you need to put in the »Awesome Mix Vol. 2« and listen loudly when unpacking him :-)

28.02.2018 • MY STARDUST.

Not only our fellow Mick comes up with comprehensive reviews on 1/6 scale figures of all kinds from time to time. Today it's about an article from Daniela, a member of the passionate »Action Figure District« community. The object of desire: Jyn Erso by Hot Toys.

The incredibly well done figure with all its details - from head sculpt to the accessories - is scratching almost at a 9/10 ranking - for us another statement that Hot Toys delivered a very special highlight here!

Through this link you can get to the diverting review with with many nice shots:
https://action-figure-district.de/hot-toys-jyn-erso-deluxe-version-rogue-one/

We're wondering though: where are all the other (human) characters from Rogue One? Besides Jyn we do have Chriut Îmwe on the market, but besides that we have to stick with K-2SO and Co. Baze Malbus was at least already teasered by Hot Toys - so let's keep our fingers crossed that there will be coming some more releases our way ;-)

We currently do have exactly 1 piece of the regular version left in stock of the lovely Jyn!

26.02.2018 • FEAR WHAT'S INSIDE

A few days ago, the new film by Alex Garland (Ex Machina), ANNIHILATION, started at the movies in the US. After almost 6.000 critics on IMDb the apocalyptic Sci-Fi flick is set at a smooth 8 and is constantly getting new positive feedback.

Outside of the US it seems that the movie won't be hitting cinemas, but will be available online at NETFLIX by mid of March. This is a totally new way of marketing or placment, which sort of gives us an advantage here in Europe. Interesting for sure - like the movie itself. If you haven't heard or seen anything yet, you should check out the latest trailer on »Annihilation«:
https://youtu.be/89OP78l9oF0

22.02.2018 • IT IS TIME FOR PENNYWISE!

Thanks to the extremely successful remake of Stephen King’s IT, which drew us all to cinemas in September last year, the manufacturers of licensed collectibles finally have a heart and grabbed the rights for the horror-franchise.

NECA is kicking-off ahead and just revealed PENNYWISE - both in the old 1990 and in the fresh 2017 version - as »Ultimate Action-Figure« at New York Toy Fair! Furthermore, we can expect Body Knockers, Headknockers and Scalers of the most famous horror clown of all times.

You can already find all figures listed on our website for pre-order. Please definately take a look, because especially the »Ultimate« figures by NECA are not only packaged very nicely, but they also come with loads of accessories auch as exchangable heads and hands... and, in this case, of course balloons :-)

By the way: IT is out now on DVD and Blu-ray!

20.02.2018 • THE DAY HAS COME...

...your Eternia collection will be extended by new MASTERS OF THE UNIVERSE.

The first both MOTU Waves (Collectors Choice and Club Grayskull) by Super7 are available now!

But you should hurry up, because our stock is apparently shrinking ;-)

19.02.2018 • THIS IS THE OASIS...

The long-awaited new Spielberg movie READY PLAYER ONE is waiting in the wings and the new, (probably) final trailer is joining us into a real blockbuster.

This preview looks more dramatic than the last ones and shows again how many hints and recourses to film- and comic-culture the movie will contain: if you blink at the wrong spot, you may miss a wonderful easter egg.
Not only the DeLorean from »Back To The Future« makes our fangirl/fanboy hearts beat faster, but also the T-Rex from Spielbergs »Jurassic Park« finds a place in the digital world of »Ready Player One«.

The movie will hit theaters worldwide by late March / early April - are you ready to immerse yourselves into the Oasis?

15.02.2018 • RETURN TO WAKANDA

Superhero fans are looking forward excitedly to this thursday for a long time - finally the the next Marvel blockbuster hits cinemas: BLACK PANTHER!
Most of the reviews are overwhelming, because the film is not simply a sequel of the MCU mass production, but seems to be really exciting and just different. If that will disappoint a lot of fans of classic superhero movies?
What can be already said: Black Panther is going to break a number of records. Due to the crazy ticket-presale, about 170 million dollars are estimated being brought in on this (President’s-Day-)weekend only. That means, it could dethrone DEADPOOL when it comes to most successful February starts!
Unfortunately outside the US it's always more difficult for blockbusters with an afro-american cast. That's why the forecasts aren't that clear, if and how the movie will strike.

We are really looking forward - not only for the film itself, of course, but also for the appropriate collectibles - for example the 1/6 Scale Black Panther by Hot Toys with its reflecting suit.
You can check out the matching category either BEFORE or AFTER your visit to the movies!

14.02.2018 • KUNG FURY WILL HIT CINEMAS

The Swedish 80s-trash-tribute-cult-short-film KUNG FURY is definitely getting a sequel - as a motion picture film with star cast!

David Sandberg, creative head and maker of the project, surely had always the dream to bring his idea to the big screen someday. This dream will now become reality and it is confirmed that Hollywood star and two time Oscar nominee Michael Fassbender takes on a main role next to Sandberg himself. If Fassbender will perhaps incarnate the Kung Fuhrer? We are excited!

The blockbuster will be produced i.a. by the trio David Katzenberg, Seth Grahame-Smith and Aaron Schmidt, who were jointly responsible recently for the most successful horror movie of all times - IT. So this has to be great. What's definitely still missing though is action-figures! We will have a word with Mr. Fury regarding this ;-)

Oh, and who doesn't know KUNG FURY yet, you should really treat yourself to half an hour of trash par excellence. The movie is available for free on YouTube and it's going to break the 30 million clicks soon:
https://youtu.be/bS5P_LAqiVg

12.02.2018 • THE YEAR OF THE DOG

Our year is already one and a half months old, but our friends in Asia are going to start their new year this Friday.

2018 is the year of the dog, therefore it's characterised by loyalty, diligence and reliability. Due to the fact that these attributes apply to us as well (;-)) we planned everything of the upcoming 1/6 shipment from China and it's already on the way to us - that means, you won't have to wait for weeks.

As we know by experience, at that time the Asian continent - at least regarding work processes - is in relaxing, standby mode.

08.02.2018 • FEBRUARY AT THE MOVIES

Even though the cinematic February is already one week old, we will give you a summary of the monthly screen highlights as usual:

Last week already a few interesting movies started, for example THE DISASTER ARTIST. The winner of two Golden Globes about the genesis of the worst film ever (»The Room«) persuades with the two Franco brothers James (also the director) and Dave in the main roles.
It‘s a funny story which makes the audience practically a part of the set and also shows, how this „masterpiece“ by and with Tommy Wiseau even came into existence.

Furthermore the third part of MAZE RUNNER (additional title: The Death Cure) started. In the action-packed sequel, Thomas and his friends do now know, why they are being chased. They carry the key to an antidote against a virus inside of them. This time their way leads them back to where it all started...

Since last thursday there‘s also playing a beautifully „dirty“ action movie again: DEN OF THIEVES with Gerard Butler and Curtis James Jackson alias 50 Cent. In the capital city of bank robbers, Los Angeles, a gang is targeted by a special force after a failed security van coup. The crew is planning a last big attack - on the Federal Reserve Bank which is rated as uncrackable. A game of cat-and-mouse begins ;-)

Today we have WIND RIVER on the list - even if it won‘t play in all the theaters. The story takes place in a freezing, snowy reserve in Wayoming, where tracker and hunter Cory Lambert (Jeremy Renner) spotts a dead body. A young and inexperienced FBI agent (Elizabeth Olsen) is called for the case, but she rapidly reaches her limits.
That looks like a tough but also sensitively played thriller.

We won‘t mention FIFTY SHADES OF GREY part 3.

All Marvel fans will be drawing a thick red line around next thursday on their calendars. BLACK PANTHER is on schedule! T'Challa, who‘s already seen in »Captain America: Civil War«, returns home to Wakanda and goes to fight for the country‘s legitimate throne.
This superhero movie is definitely going to be a highlight of the MCU - trailers and reviews are promising...

But yet it will probably have to share the pole position for the cinema start of the month with a huge oscar favorite (13 nominees!): THE SHAPE OF WATER. This fantasy film is again going to be a great success by filmmaker Guillermo del Toro. A mute lady called Elisa works in a research facility during the cold war. Secret experiments are happening and she builds up a special connection to an amphibious creature held in captivity. Her life will change forever...

Also on February 15th ALL THE MONEY IN THE WORLD by Ridley Scott is hitting German theaters. Right, it‘s the movie where Kevin Spacey was replaced by Christopher Plummer afterwards! Mark Wahlberg as a former CIA agent is part of it, too. The movie is based on true incidents and tells the story of the kidnapping of a rich oil tycoon‘s grandson in the earl 70‘s. The Italian mafia charges 17 million dollars, but the grandfather refuses the payment.

February seems to be the month of famous directors: on the last thursday we will get to see THE POST, the new movie of Steven Spielberg. The main cast contains names of the same quality - Maryl Streep is Kay Graham, who takes over the »Washington Post« as a company of her family in the 1970‘s. The role of the editor-in-chief, who received secret information about the Pentagon Papers, was occupied by Tom Hanks. This motion picture impressively demonstrates how journalism proceeds and is literally „lived“. That‘s surely going to be a cinema highlight at the end!

07.02.2018 • MOTU-DAY ON 2/20 :-)

Heads up, dear MASTERS OF THE UNIVERSE fans and collectors: both the first waves of the »MOTU Classics« and the »Filmation« figures by SUPER7 are about to march in! Crap, they're already here, at the S.P.A.C.E Headquarter - since a couple of days actually...

However we have the restriction from Super7 to not start shipping them out before 20th February. All of you who already pre-ordered or still plan to do this shortly, can definately mark that Tuesday as MOTU-Day in the calendar :-)

Until then, we will sweeten you the waiting time with some quick unboxings on our Instagram stories, a couple of crazy photos taken by our Etaernian Timo and a review on Hordak by our friends from Choking Hazard TV.

In case somebody will totally freak out now because of the anticipation and you need instant replenishment from Eternia: we just received the ReAction wave 3 (Battle Armor He-Man, Battle Armor Skeletor, Kobra Khan, Zodac, Teela, Stratos) brand-new in stock!

06.02.2018 • I'M GONNA BE A PILOT...

Disney and Lucasfilm extremely delayed to please us with info and pictures of SOLO: A STAR WARS STORY. Punctually at the Super Bowl (as expected) the very first teaser of the Star Wars spin-off was released. Then yesterday, the wholesome trailer ultimately followed:

https://youtu.be/dNW0B0HsvVs

We already get to see the main actors - including Chewie of course - and not only visually it gives a hint of what we will get to see on the big screen in nearly four months.

The trailer (and probably also the movie itself) will cause controversial opinions again, like Episode VIII did. The question always is: what do you expect from such a film? Has such a story always to be told in the classy way and how "everybody" is expecting it to be? Or isn't it allowed to make it just more modern and unexpected sometimes? Especially ROGUE ONE proved it - and let's keep in mind that a Star Wars institution, Lawrence Kasdan, wrote the Han Solo spin-off together with his son Jon. So let's get excited and think positive ;-)

Furthermore, four official movie posters were published which are portraying Han, Chewbacca, Lando and Qi'Ra in a new, but very cool style. Here we can certainly say "May the Twenty-Force be with You..."!

05.02.2018 • SUPER BOWL LII

Last night the 52nd SUPER BOWL took place in Minneapolis and as every year, this event was an exquisite media spectacle.

The evening was initiated traditionally with the national anthem of the USA which was presented by the magnificent PINK. During the 15-minute halftime show exceptional talent JUSTIN TIMBERLAKE made the stadium freak out. You should definitely not miss out on that performance.

Of course the break was also used to release hot new trailers of upcoming movies and series to the world. Disney didn't miss to show us a new clip of AVENGERS. Star Wars fans at least got to see a 45-second teaser of SOLO: A STAR WARS STORY - the full clip will be published in a few hours. Also just stunning is the new trailer of JURASSIC WORLD: FALLEN KINGDOM, as well as the utterly atmospheric preview of the second season of HBO's WESTWORLD. At the end of the appetizer of THE CLOVERFIELD PARADOX, Netflix lighted the biggest firecracker though, announcing that the movie is going to be available right away and exclusively on Netflix! Last but not least the riddle about the mysterious DUNDEE trailers was solved: the Australian tourism association is behind this brilliant PR campaign. The newest clip to this is definitely worth a click!

We did a compilation of all the videos for you so that you can stare in an infinite loop ;-)

Oh, and by the way: the »Philadelphia Eagles« defeated the »New England Patriots« 41:33 - congratulations!

02.02.2018 • PRODUCT OF THE MONTH FEBRUARY 2018

Sideshow’s COURT OF THE DEAD Collection belongs definitely to the most creative and fascinating collectibles lines for us. Not only because every collectible is made with the highest measure of quality regarding sculpting and painting. But also every character of Sideshow’s self creation is endowed with a background story.

You can find this fantastic realization in our product of the month as well! A fool, better said the fool of the death, made it on the February throne: the »Malavestros - Death's Chronicler-Fool« Premium Format Figure!

This unique statue is limited to 750 pieces worldwide and it's a must have for every »Court of the Dead« collection.

01.02.2018 • SPIELWARENMESSE NUREMBERG 2018

Yesterday we visited the famous toy fair in Nuremberg checking out novelties for you guys regarding collectibles.
As every year the main part of the S.P.A.C.E Crew went on its (only) one and a half hour car trip to Franconia for catching as much as possible out of the twelve halls. It's almost impossible to go through all of them in just one day - that's why we concentrated on the thematically most important ones as always.
Here are some of our fair highlights of this year: DEATHSTROKE by Sideshow (especially due to the base's super realistic details) as well as the massive GUTS Statue by PRIME 1 - and of course KRATOS in all sizes and versions ;-)

As we know most of you won't get the chance to visit this fair, we captured our impressions on camera - the result you can find in our Facebook album.

30.01.2018 • WINGS AND BLASTERS

Marvel Studios has just posted the first teaser trailer of ANT-MAN AND THE WASP online... and it's wheting our appetites for July 6th!

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8_rTIAOohas

Of course all fans are looking forward to seeing Paul Rudd, Michael Douglas and Michael Pena again, but Evangeline Lilly in her amazing outfit as »The Wasp« will definitely steal the guy's show. Because she got wings and blasters ;-)

29.01.2018 • IN APRIL 2019 WINTER IS COMING

After the last season of GAME OF THRONES we were disappointed that there wouldn't be a continuing in 2018. Now the 8th season of the famous series finally has it's starting date!

GOT actress Maisie Williams (Arya Stark) divulged that the film shooting will be finished at the end of 2018. In April 2019 we will finally find out who will win the game of the Iron Throne.

There's nothing left for all fans than bridging this long long time with speculations and theories...

26.01.2018 • KRATOS IS SLAUGHTERING AGAIN

The fans are already waiting for months for the release date of GOD OF WAR, the fourth part of the iconic gaming series. Now the time has come:
Sony did announce the 20th April 2018 as official launching date of the newest slaughtering of Kratos. And what's almost the sickest: he has now a full beard!
Lovers of the franchise will be able to enjoy not only a standard and limited edition, but also a great collector's edition. This one comes, inter alia, with an exclusive Gentle Giant statue of Kratos and Atreus.

To heat it all up, a new trailer was released as well, which helps us to guess what will lie ahead of us.

Also the gaming-addicted part of the S.P.A.C.E crew can’t wait to let the gods bleed again.

23.01.2018 • 80s GOOSE BUMPS

Shortly there was released a new TV spot of Spielberg's new motion picture READY PLAYER ONE, which includes - next to lots of easter eggs - a secret code that brings you to another goodie: the bonus material called »See the Future«.
Everyone who loves the cult classics from the 80s (and of course we all do...!) and who wants to experience a true moment of goose bumps, should definitely give himself three minutes for dipping into the Oasis and enjoying the additional video.

All of you who aren't into riddles can just click this link to get to the mentioned clip.

If READY PLAYER ONE wont be a highlight of the year... and what's the best: it's going to hit the movies already end of March!

22.01.2018 • HE COMES FROM A LAND DOWN UNDER...

This past weekend a teaser trailer of »Dundee: The Son of a Legend Returns Home« suddenly appeared on the web. A CROCODILE DUNDEE sequel with Danny McBride as Brian Dundee - the yet unknown son of the legendary bush hunter - in the main role? How about that?!
So far there was absolutely nothing and nobody to indicate that this movie was planned and now it will launch already this summer. Even the "real" Dundee alias Paul Hogan is supposed to take part...

Is all of that just an elaborately staged PR stunt to promote an entirely different McBride movie or is there really going to be a sequel of the 80's classics? What do you think?

19.01.2018 • ADVENTURE JOURNEY TO THE DEVIL'S SEA

Warner has just released the second trailer on TOMB RAIDER - and it is definately worth a click!

The new clip is revealing surely more about the plot - and it shows us how fully action-loaded the new »Lara Croft« version with the wisely picked Alicia Vikander will roar over the big screens. Mid of March will be the time :-)

18.01.2018 • WHERE IS HAN?

Disney has just revealed a short synopsis of the »Star Wars« spin-off SOLO: A STAR WARS STORY. As expected, we will find out how the young Han (played by Alden Ehrenreich) meets his companions Chewbacca and Lando Calrissian and how his shady business as a smuggler gets initiated.

Speaking of "initiating" - where the heck is the first trailer?! At least the start at the movies is scheduled for the end of May, which is just about four months away. We assume that it will be the time at Super Bowl in February. At the latest.

16.01.2018 • HEROES AND VILLAINS...

The next Pop Culture convention will have its premiere in Germany - the »Heroes & Villains Fan Fest«!

This event was initiated by actor Stephen Amell (Arrow) and organizer James Frazier (Walker Stalker Con) and it will take place on June 2nd & 3rd 2018 at the Dortmunder Westfalenhallen. The fan fest with its motto "It's not just Fandom. It’s Family." will also happen in Chicago, Nashville, New Jersey, San Jose, as well as in London.

The closeness of fans and star guests is stressed out here - very popular actors from movies and TV series (e.g. Arrow, The Flash, Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., This Is Us, Guardians of the Galaxy, The Punisher etc.) can be experienced very closely when taking photos with their fans and signing autographs. We will keep an eye on the upcoming stars being announced and if the event will also be interesting for us as exhibitors. Has someone of you already had the chance to visit a HVFF and to catch the atmosphere?

12.01.2018 • EVIL SEEKS EVIL.

With the just released trailer on the next and already 10th part of the Pinhead series »Hellraiser Judgement«, Lionsgate makes all HELLRAISER fans smile - hopefully.

The horror flick will be coming direct-to-video on DVD and Blu-ray on 13th February (in the US). This could be a sweet Valentin's Day this year... :-)
 

11.01.2018 • JANUARY AT THE MOVIES

The first cinema month of the year is not really showing off with huge blockbusters, but some movies are definitely worth a ticket - including one or the other contender for the Oscar awards...

Already last week started THE GREATEST SHOWMAN, a musical drama with  Hugh Jackman, Zac Efron and Michelle Williams in the main roles. The film is based on the true story of the legendary showman, politician, businessman and swindler P.T. Barnum, who invented the very first curiosity cabinet.
Right away the title song was awarded with the Golden Globe for the best original song.

Also on January 4th INSIDIOUS: THE LAST KEY had its start at the movies. It is the fourth part of the horror series, in which parapsychologist Elise now goes hunting demons in her own birthplace. The overall ratings are very differently - what do you guys think?

From today on an absolute highlight for all Anime fans will be on the programme: YOUR NAME. It‘s said to be the most successful Anime of all time! The story is about Mitsuha, a girl from a small mountain town, and Taki, who‘s going to high school in Tokyo. They both are able to switch bodies within their dreams - a story that is wonderfully told and also visually realized. On IMDb it reached a great 8,5 and not only fans of the genre won‘t regret a visit to the movies.

In THE COMMUTER Liam Neeson takes on the - for him almost classic - role of a normal worker and family man. As he commutes to his job like every other day, he‘s expected to find out a specific person on the train for a reward of 100,000 Dollars. He has no choice anyway because his family is in gangsters‘ clutches and the clock is ticking...

Next thursday it‘s moving on with DOWNSIZING. Shortage of resources due to overpopulation of our planet takes center stage of the story. The solution could be the so called downsizing, a process where humans can be shrinked to 3% of their height. Therefore people will have a lot smaller consumption of food, energy and of course space – for example 100,000$ will have a value of 12 millions.
Sounds like an interesting and funny movie that‘s going to be a real highlight this cinematic January, especially due to the unpredictability and the acting performance of Matt Damon and Christoph Waltz (it seems to be his best role since years!).

There will also be heavy stuff on the 18th: in DARKEST HOUR just shortly after his inauguration Winston Churchill has to make the most important decisions of his life and simultaneously on the future of Great Britain. Gary Oldman was awarded with a Golden Globe (best performance of an actor - drama) for his role as Churchill. That‘s not the only reason why the movie is a hot candidate for the Oscars.

January is keeping its climax of movie starts for the end. On Sunday evening THREE BILLBOARDS OUTSIDE EBBING, MISSOURI cleared four Golden Globes, including as best drama motion picture.
In Mildred Hayes‘ opinion the police is taking too little action after her daughter was raped to death. After months she places three huge billboards at her town Ebbing on which she attacks the sheriff with unmistakable messages. The situation between the traumatized mother and the local police is escalating more and more.
Martin McDonagh won the well-deserved Golden Globe for his screenplay because the characters, the plot twists and the handling of delicate issues like police violence and racism are realized just brilliant.

What are you going to watch and what not? There is definitely enough to watch on uncomfortable and boring January evenings :-)

10.01.2018 • 12 DAYS OF SIDESHOW

As already in the years before, the major brand SIDESHOW COLLECTIBLES featured their annual »12 Days of Sideshow« product preview over the turn of the year. On every of these 12 days they gave us tasty treats which heatened up the anticipation on new, upcoming collectibles.

Besides new products out of the existing line-up from MARVEL, DC or STAR WARS they also confirmed THUNDERCATS as a brandnew license. Further, we can be excited about a »Rebel Terminator« in Premium Format. But the best thing is to take a close look on the complete list of all teasers from the 12 days:

Wonder Woman Premium Format Figure   
Yoda Legendary Scale Figure   
Boba Fett - Mythos Sixth Scale Figure   
Daredevil Premium Format Figure   
Spider-man Miles Morales Premium Format Figure   
The Joker Premium Format Figure   
Harley Quinn Premium Format Figure   
Poison Ivy Premium Format Figure   
Mumm-Ra Statue   
Batman Premium Format Figure   
Lion-O Statue   
Elektra Premium Format Figure   
Superman Premium Format Figure   
Black Widow Premium Format Figure   
Spider-man Legendary Scale Figure   
Wolverine Life-Size Bust   
Rebel Terminator Premium Format Figure   
Captain America Premium Format Figure   
The Joker - Gotham City Nightmare Statue

We will surely be able to start listing all these novelties on our website for pre-order soon...

08.01.2018 • GOLDEN GLOBES IN THE FADE

As you all know, yesterday the 75th Golden Globes awarding took place in Los Angeles. The most successful motion picture of the evening was »Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri«. The movie about police violence and racism was honored as best Drama, Frances McDormand for the best performance by an actress (Drama), Sam Rockwell for the best performance by an actor in a supporting role, as well as Martin McDonagh for the best screenplay.

We think it's also very impressive that Guillermo del Toro was able to assert himself as best director (»The Shape of Water«) against his fellows Christopher Nolan, Ridley Scott and Steven Spielberg - we shall definitely not miss this movie ;-)
Obviously we are extremely proud of Fatih Akin, who received a Golden Globe for »In The Fade« with Diane Kruger in the main role as the best foreign language motion picture. Congratulations!

05.01.2018 • LET THERE BE LIGHTNING!

Soon we can enjoy the first superhero TV show of the new year - BLACK LIGHTNING! The US station »The CW Television Network« is currently releasing one clip after the other and sweetens the waiting time for fans a bit. The first season with 13 episodes will kick-off on 16th January in the US and on 23rd January in Germany (on Netflix).

The story of »Black Lightning« is about the return of the superhero Jefferson Pierce, who wants to protect his city and especially his two daughters against the omnipresent violence and crime, by using his superhuman abilities to contol electricity. Not bad for a school director...
 

03.01.2018 • PRODUCT OF THE MONTH JANUARY 2018

We love WETA and basically everything from Middle-Earth - even when it comes to not the prettiest of all creatures ;-)

So it was immediately clear, when the invasion of the battle trolls began here last week, that the brute WAR TROLL STATUE has to be our first product of the month in the new year!

The team from the Weta Workshop again delivered an outstanding collectible here which shouldn't be missing in any established »Lord of the Rings« or »Hobbit« collection. Not only because of the strictly limited edition of 400 pieces worldwide, this mean battle troll with its removable helmet is definately yet a highlight in 2018.

02.01.2018 • WELCOME TO 2018!

Dearest S.P.A.C.E ARMY, a happy, joyful, prosperous, pleasing and especially healthy new year! May all our wishes come true :-)


2018 is surely going to be an eventful year for us here at the S.P.A.C.E headquarter, because we have a lot on our agenda. A milestone will surely be our 20th anniversary in September, which will be accompanied by another highlight - the expansion of our warehouse and our offices. But we also want to evolve "online" and get some new features rollin'. Let's start with a little face-lift of our weekly newsletter. And then there's of course our website - and YouTube, Facebook, Instagram and Twitter. And and and...

Be excited and be welcome in the year 2018!

22.12.2017 • MERRYYY XMAS!

So well, may the quiet times come...
Dear customers, we are now looking forward to a long weekend and a little break from all the buzz. Our almost empty batteries urgently need to get refilled with good food, glogg and cookies ;-)

We wish you a happy and harmonious Christmas with all your beloved ones - and your collectibles! A big special thanks goes out for all the many Christmas cards, candy boxes, small and big gifts and the nice emails and comments from you guys! This really made us happy - and it already brought us some more pounds on the scales...

MERRYYY XMAS from the whole S.P.A.C.E Crew!

21.12.2017 • THE TOYS THAT MADE US

So there we are: NETFLIX definately made it to our no. 1 streaming portal of the year!

We already celebrated a lof of stuff which Netflix has produced or brought up during this year - but with their brandnew doku series »The toys that made us« they are definately catching all vintage collectors, toys fanatics and kids of the 80's!

The 8-Episode documentation will be all about franchises like Star Wars, G.I.Joe, Masters of the Universe aso. and it will air tomorrow with the first 4 episodes. Surely many of you guys will watch them with huge childhood flashbacks during the holidays.

20.12.2017 • EPISODE IX - BLACK DIAMOND

The STAR WARS fan page »Fantha Tracks« has revealed the working title of Star Wars - Episode IX! According to the website, through which by the way also project names of former Star Wars movies leaked, the final part of the current trilogy has the nickname »Black Diamond«. The production company behind the project seems to be »Carbonado Industries (UK) Ltd.« :-)

J.J. Abrams seems to be ready, by the way, to give the trilogy a worthy end. He already pitched his story plans to Disney boss Bob Iger some days ago...

Shooting is supposed to start in early 2018 of course, so that we all will hopefully finally learn more about Rey's background by Christmas 2019. Wouldn't that be nice?
 

19.12.2017 • MORTAL ENGINES

Universal Pictures has just released the first trailer of MORTAL ENGINES - a film based on the sci-fi novel by writer Philip Reeve.

The content is about the war between cities at a sparse end time after the "Sixty Minute War". The trailer definitely does communicate this atmosphere very well.

What's even more interesting and promising: the Middle-Earth trio Peter Jackson, Philippa Boyens and Fran Walsh wrote the movie's screenplay. Therefore not just the optical aspect of »Mortal Engines« but also the storyline could make it a big highlight in the upcoming theatrical year...

14.12.2017 • EPISODE VIII

Today’s the day: STAR WARS - THE LAST JEDI is finally hitting theatres!

Everybody who couldn’t make it on a midnight premiere will probably start his seek for the last Jedi tonight (so will the S.P.A.C.E Crew!).

We wish all Star Wars fans forceful 152 minutes, with loads of goosebumps, spinning heads, wet eyes and smiling faces. May the Force be with You!

12.12.2017 • HELP US SAVE THE OASIS!

Yesterday, WARNER released the new trailer on READY PLAYER ONE, the filming of the sci-fi novel by Ernest Cline. What a spectacular... Mastermind Steven Spielberg seems to really like the book, because what we are facing here will be massive!

Already in the trailer you will find so many easter eggs (besides the one itself) - both for your eyes and your ears - that you probably will have to watch the movie several times to be able to discover everything. If all stays in timing, then we can fasten ourselves in the cinema seats in April and dive into the Oasis :-)

11.12.2017 • THE PREMIERE OF THE LAST JEDI

Last Saturday, the STAR WARS: THE LAST JEDI world premiere took place in Los Angeles! Daisy Ridley, Lupita Nyong'o, Mark Hamill, Adam Driver and many many others of the cast marched over the red carpet in front of the Shrine Auditorium. Daisy Ridley was shining in her proper evening dress, with sparkling stars. John Boyega just made it on last minute to the premiere in California, because there was a hefty snow storm in Atlanta which disturbed the air traffic. Where the heck is an X-Wing Fighter when you need one?

The evening was opened by director Rian Johnson with a pathetic speech. He dedicated the movie to the princess of our hearts, to dear Carrie Fisher who passed away last year.

We all still have to wait some more days untill we also can make our journey to a galaxy far, far away. Episode VIII is already being hyped as one of the best »Star Wars« films EVER among fans. Ough, why can't it be already Thursday...

08.12.2017 • DINOS ON THE RUN

One of the next year's absolute highlights at the movies is going to be JURASSIC WORLD: FALLEN KINGDOM. All week long the first official trailer was announced - and here it finally is:

https://youtu.be/vn9mMeWcgoM

The next part of the dinosaur spectacle will be hitting theaters on 8th June 2018. What we can definitely expect after we saw the trailer: the screen is going to glow ;-)

07.12.2017 • OFF TO DORTMUND, TO GERMAN COMIC CON!

Well, fans of modern pop culture, it's GERMAN COMIC CON Time - Dortmund here we come! About five hours of driving in a full-packed van lie ahead us before we'll build up the massive booth at Westfalenhallen tomorrow.

We're looking forward to meeting as many of you guys as possible at our booth, because we have lots of stuff prepared for you. All information about that and the framework programme can be found in this Facebook-Album or in our special newsletter of today!

Please understand that we can only handle your online orders and requests infrequent until Monday, but we do need all of the S.P.A.C.E Crew's man- and woman-power at the con. Our headquarter will be staffed again completely by Tuesday.

06.12.2017 • WHO YA GONNA CALL?

To pay tribute to our current product of the month, the 1/6 GHOSTBUSTERS figures from Blitzway, our Sven made a couple of days ago to the studio of our dear friends from CHOKING HAZARD TV, to celebrate a nerdy unboxing of the »Special Packs« together with Max, Dominik and Steven.

The result of the session can be watched online on the guys' »Radio Nukular« YouTube channel! And if you would like to see the figures live, then you should come to German Comic Con in Dortmund this weekend ;-)
 

05.12.2017 • DECEMBER AT THE MOVIES

The last month of the year just started - so the last movies of the year 2017 will start at the theaters as well. Even if we don't want to be disrespectful or peasant at all - looking at the December starts - but we have to say there can only be one movie which cineasticly completes 2017. But first there are of course a few films which should be mentioned. You almost get the impression that nearly all movies of this month are pushed on this Thursday (07.12.), so they at least have a chance to compete for the cinema crown. Understandable ;-)

First there's A GHOST STORY, a movie that sounds like horror genre, but it's more of a mystic drama. A woman loses her beloved husband (played by Oscar winner Casey Affleck) in a car accident. He appears again as a ghost (without any CGI effects, just with a bed sheet over his head) and helps his wife overcoming her sorrow. Could be a pretty special movie due to the fact that it's broadcasted in 4:3 format and its topic is mostly about afterlife.

Also noteworthy is the story of THE MOUNTAIN BETWEEN US with Idris Elba and Kate Winslet in the main roles. The two first meet each other at the airport and they just want to get home quickly. The flight is cancelled so they have to change to a small sports aircraft. This plane - what else could we have expected - is crashing somewhere in nowhere and struggle for survival begins. Doesn't actually sound like new scenario, but the movie shows on a really emotional level, how two strangers have to trust each other to escape from such an extreme situation.

Very exciting - even if it will just be played in selected theaters - may be the horror thriller POLAROID. Its content in just one sentence: an old (cursed) polaroid camera leads everyone who's photographed by it to a cruel death. The trailer definitely looks quite spooky...

On the 21st we have scheduled the new edition of JUMANJI. Its cast is equipped with jesters like Jack Black, Kevin Hart and Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson - we will stick with the original including Robin Williams.

Between the years there will be a highlight: candidate for an academy award THE KILLING OF A SACRED DEER. The heart surgeon and family man Steven (Colin Farrell) lives a happy life with his wife Anna (Nicole Kidman) and his children. But then he's taken back to his past - one of his patient died during a surgery and now there's kind of an odd connection between Steven and the son of the deceased.

But now to the (probably) movie of the year: STAR WARS EPISODE VIII - THE LAST JEDI!
As we think, Disney and Lucasfilm make it more particularly exciting this time, as they just gave us one single trailer to heat us up for the next part of the saga. When you hear interviews with the actors or see Kathleen Kennedy's euphoria for Rian Johnson, you can be assured that »The Last Jedi« is going to blow us out of the theater seats. Only through Carrie Fisher's death, this movie is going to have a special aura - not only for hardcore Star Wars fans. Those (including us) are surely already counting the hours until 14th / 15th of December.

So: ensure your tickets for a midnight premiere, be nice to the Porgs and may the Force be with you!

02.12.2017 • HAPPY 5th ANNIVERSARY, ACTION FIGURE DISTRICT!

Today exactly five years ago, our friend Mick Baltes launched his German online-magazine ACTION FIGURE DISTRICT! Since then, the platform is the top source for news, hints, features and archived knowledge - especially when it comes to "1/6 Scale" - for us, but surely also for many of you.

The whole S.P.A.C.E Crew congratulates you, dear Mick, on this wonderful anniversary! Thanks so much for your efforts and work, your passion and wisdom which you are sharing with us collectors day by day!

If anybody from the S.P.A.C.E Army would like to send out congrats, please do so - but be as creative as can be. Because then you have the chance to snag one of five prices. More can be read... exactly - on ACTION FIGURE DISTRICT ;-)
 

01.12.2017 • PRODUCT OF THE MONTH DECEMBER 2017

In our opinion the manufacturer BLITZWAY is one of the "little gems" among the brands. Even though those kind of companies are rolling out less novelties - compared to big competitors like Sideshow, Hot Toys or Neca - these are often real highlights. At Blitzway there seems to be exactly 1 such an extraordinary collectible per year, because interestingly in December 2016 we picked the 1/6 Scale Tyler Durden figure(s) of »Fight Club« as our product of the month.

It's definitely not due to any algorithm, but due to the impressive quality of the figures (combined with the extremely interesting theme) that this month we decided on the brand new GHOSTBUSTERS figures from Blitzway as our monthly highlight!

Dear Ghostbusters fans out there: the waiting for dignified realizations of your four paranormal 80's favorites in the form of high-end collectibles is over! These 1/6 Scale figures (headsculpts, clothing, accessories... and even packaging) thoroughly are just eye candy and a must-have for lovers of Ivan Reitman's classic. Our first batch is almost gone, so slide down the pole of your fire station right away, run to the alarm- ugh order-button and grab the Special Bundle with all four ghostbusters - or even just your individual favorite character. For those of you who are too late, we will receive re-stock in our headquarter in January ;-)

29.11.2017 • TRAILER-TIME IN THE MCU

Trailer here, trailer there... :-O AVENGERS TRAILER!!

So finally here it is - the trailer of the third clash of the avengers at the Marvel Cinematic Universe »Avengers: Infinity War« which was long-awaited by all Marvel superhero fans.

Already yesterday Marvel Studios announced the release with a reaction video compilation. Only just the time has come and we get a taste of what will hit the big screens in spring 2018.

Enough words - check out the trailer! What do you guys think ;-)

28.11.2017 • (FEAR) THE WALKING DEAD CROSSOVER NEWS

Since Robert Kirkman announced a crossover between »The Walking Dead« and »Fear the Walking Dead« at New York Comic Con in October 2017, there was lots of specualtion about which character will be involved in this.

After the latest TWD episode was broadcasted last Sunday the secret was revealed within AMC's talkshow »The Talking Dead«: Lennie James alias MORGAN is going to be the first member of the TWD cast, who will be also part of the spinoff series. If that means the assured Morgan's »The Walking Dead«-death?

Yesterday the shooting of »Fear the Walking Dead« season 4 started and AMC gives us a small insight of Morgan's first working day on set:
https://www.facebook.com/FearTWD/videos/1917563011895139/

Season 4 will probably start in June 2018.

27.11.2017 • CYBER MONDAY

A wonderful Cyber Monday morning everybody!

It's getting colder outside - our Headquarter is on fire... thanks to all your diligent shopping at CyberSpaceWeekend! We are really happy that our Sale goes down so well with you and that you're swiping out our shelves :-)

Please have mercy with us this week. We have to process the bulk of orders and parcels one after another, so this will probably drag on the whole week. Of course, we will do our best.

By the way, our special offers will be live till late tomorrow morning, so you can still browse through on today's Cyber Monday intensively...

24.11.2017 • CYBERSPACEWEEKEND 2017

Heads up, you Black-Friday-Cyber-Monday-Pre-Christmas-Deal-Hunters! Of course, also we are starting off - since yesterday evening, the first batch of items are marked down on our website and this morning lots more have been added.

More than 400 collectibles from different brands are waiting for your pick-up - and on some you can save more than 50%. Everybody should find something, for sure. Treat yourself, or somebody who's sharing the passion for modern pop culture!

But you should be fast, because some deals are already gone or only left in a very small quantity. So happy deal haunting and a wonderful, deep Black Friday ;-)

22.11.2017 • PARANORMAL ACTIVITIES IN OUR HEADQUARTER

Dear GHOSTBUSTERS fans, today is an awesome day for you! Not only that we were finally able to list the monsterous ECTO-1 by Blitzway in 1:6 scale for pre-order yesterday... no - matching to this we just received the four ghostbusters themselves in stock!

They were part of a big 1/6 shipment from Asia, where all kitbashers among you will get very pleased for sure :-)

All pre-ordering customers will be notified in the next days. We will even do an extra Saturday shift this week to make sure that all your packages will be sent out as fast as possible.

20.11.2017 • THREE FACES OF FEAR

Horror fans definitely got their money's worth the past few weeks - three different conventions took place from end of October to mid of November in Germany: FEAR CON, HOUSE OF HORRORS and WEEKEND OF HELL.

We "only" took part in the first two mentioned and overall we draw a marbled conclusion. Our colleague Mick compared strengths and weaknesses of all three events in his »GHOUL'S GARDEN« and also did a personal rating:

http://ghouls-garden.de/drei-gesichter-der-furcht-horror-conventions-im-vergleich/

Your opinions are quite different? Write down in the comments on Facebook or Instadram, how you did experience the conventions und what kind of improvements/changes you wish for next year...

16.11.2017 • UNITE THE LEAGUE!

Today, finally the long-awaited DC Blockbuster JUSTICE LEAGUE starts at cinemas! Probably the opinions about this movie will differ, but at least it's at a good 8 on IMDB. Feel free to share your thoughts about it with us on Facebook or Instagram.

In the meantime we're looking after the relevant collectibles. So for example DC COLLECTIBLES fortunately has the first drive of 1/6 scale statues already in delivery, which means that Wonder Woman, Flash and Aquaman will arrive soon at our warehouse. Another highlight definitely is going to be the new Wonder Woman JL edition by Hot Toys, which we did put online for pre-order yesterday in two different versions :-)

15.11.2017 • AMAZON GOES MIDDLE-EARTH

What was only a rumor last week is now confirmed: Amazon did secure the rights for a LORD OF THE RINGS series.

Of course more than one season is planned, which shall take place before the »The Fellowship of the Ring«. Only for the rights, the Online-Giant had to dip deep into their purse. Grima Wormtongue rumors something around 250 Million US-$.

When the series will be filmed and aired, is not yet known. We will definitely keep you updated, because we are curious in any case.

14.11.2017 • NEXT STOP: GERMAN COMIC CON

An old nerdy saying is »After the Con is before the Con«...

We are totally excited about telling you that we will be at the GERMAN COMIC CON DORTMUND from the 9.-10. December!

After the HOUSE OF HORRORS the last weekend we will go into a furious season finale and will rock the Westfalenhallen in Dortmund with you - and a lot of special guests at our booth. More information to come soon. But so much can be said already: it’s gonna be a S.P.A.C.E Deluxe Performance ;-)

Tickets are available through the Comic Con website. We're looking foward to see you!

09.11.2017 • NOVEMBER AT THE MOVIES

Surprisingly the Movie-November appears a bit weaker, regarding to Genre-Movies. In return, there will be a furious superhero final of DC…

Apropos DC-Superheroes: last week the very interesting movie PROFESSOR MARSTON & THE WONDER WOMEN kicked off this cinema month. It’s a true story about Dr. William Marston, a Harvard Professor from the 1920s. He’s the inventor of the lie detector and was inspired by his love triangle with his feministic wife and one of his students and created the fictive character of Wonder Woman. An interesting background story for all fans of Diana - but for sure not shown in every cinema.

One highlight is out by today: There is again a MURDER ON THE ORIENT EXPRESS. The movie impresses with a huge star ensemble around Johnny Depp, Penelope Cruz, Michelle Pfeiffer, Daisy Ridley, Willem Dafoe, Judi Dench and many more. Whether the remake can top the original movie from 1974? We will see.

16th November - of course all the superhero movie fans are waiting for long and wistful for this date to come: the JUSTICE LEAGUE unites on the big screens of the world! It’s the next part of the DC Extended Universe franchise from director Zack Snyder, who already proved his skills among other movies like 300 and Watchmen. Old acquaintances like Ben Affleck and Gal Gadot are on it as well. The bad Steppenwolf is attacking the earth with an army of Para-Daemons and Bruce Wayne recognizes fast that it will take more superhero power this time. Together with Wonder Woman he recruits Cyborg, The Flash and Aquaman to originate the Justice League. We don’t really have to ask, who is going to watch the movie, right? ;)

On the same cinema Thursday a Horror-Comedy is left in the shadow of Justice League. HAPPY DEATH DAY is telling the story of a young student who was murdered in the night of her birthday - but she awakes the next day and recognizes that she is caught in a time loop. She has to go through the day of her murder over and over again. She wants to find out how she died and is trying to prevent it. Sounds a bit like Groundhog Day, but could be a humorous shocking entertainment for a good movie night.

Last but not least we want to mention COCO. All friends of the technical and optical wonderfully implemented Disney and Pixar animation movies are getting their money worth. It tells the story of a Mexican boy who wants to become a musician, but his family tries to prevent that in any case. The little Miguel gets in the realm of the dead were he meets his great-great-grandfather, who loved music as well. He experiences a beautiful journey to the place of the souls of his relatives.

08.11.2017 • LORD OF THE RINGS – SERIALIZED

This news did trigger a big discussion in our headquarter: There are rumors that there will be a renaissance of THE LORD OF THE RINGS in form of a serial. Apparently interested in acquiring the rights are Amazon, Netflix and HBO. Whereby HBO already supposed to quit the idea, because of the tremendous expected production costs. 

If this huge project is realized remains to be seen. What do you think of a Game of Thrones like »Lord of the Rings« seriel? We are a bit sceptic to be honest...

07.11.2017 • THE QUESTION IS NOT WHERE. BUT WHEN.

Amazon proved their skills with »You Are Wanted« and now their competitor Netflix is also trying: on December 1st the American streaming service will releas their first German show DARK.

The mystery series is written by Jantje Friese and Baran bo Odar (»Who am I«) and produced by the Munich company Wiedemann & Berg (»The Lives of Others«).

In ten episodes, »Dark« is telling the story of four families living in a typical German small town. As two children disappear in mysterious circumstances, the families' ideal world is turning upside down. Investigations turn back to the year 1986 - the fates of all four families are connected through time and space.

We're excited what Netflix will show us. It sounds - and looks - very good so far.

03.11.2017 • 45 SECONDS TO AWAKE

About three weeks after the long-awaited trailer on THE LAST JEDI, Lucasfilm actually regales us with the a new clip which contains a couple of new and impressive scenes!

AWAKE is the name of the video - and if you're not wide awake yet after watching it, then your name is probably "Sleeping Beauty" :o)

02.11.2017 • PRODUCT OF THE MONTH NOVEMBER 2017

Beginning of the month - it's time for the new »Product of the month«! And it's finally time for an action-figure again - no, 3 action-figures - as our monthly highlight :-)

When DIAMOND SELECT TOYS releases a new licence within their brilliant "Select" line and in addition to that it's about an absolute Tarantino cult movie, we have to pick this novelty as our product of the month.

Just arrived, unwrapped and judged as "cream of the crop": the brand new PULP FICTION Select Series 1 from Diamond, with Butch Coolidge, Jules Winnfield and Marsellus Wallace.

01.11.2017 • CATWOMAN BECOMES THE WASP

Most recent behind-the-scenes images from the set of »Ant-Man and the Wasp« are proving that Michelle Pfeiffer will definately become a part of the Marvel Cinematic Universe!

So the rumors become truth that Pfeiffer, after her role as Catwoman in »Batman Returns«, will again participate in a superhero movie. We will probably get to see her in a flashback scene alongside Hank Pym (Michael Douglas) as his wife. As Janet van Dyne she will portrait the original Wasp, which of course means an important role in the Ant-Man or Marvel franchise.

Everybody who loved the first part will surely anticipate the sequel with its high graded cast. But we have to be patient until summer 2018. Maybe we will get a first teaser pretty soon...

30.10.2017 • THE COBRA KAI DOJO WILL RE-OPEN!

TV shows everywhere and still no end in sight of the hype. YouTube’s Pay-TV section »YouTube Red« is also stepping in the ring more and more often. All kids of the 80’s will probably smile now, because 2018 we will get to see a KARATE KID TV series!

The new show will actually be a sequel on the original movies and will air next year with 10 episodes of 30 minutes each. Ralph Macchio and William Zabka will return to their old roles as Daniel Son and Johnny Lawrence. They will even be executive producing the series, together with Jon Hurwitz and Hayden Schlossburg, who were in charge for such films like »Harold & Kumar« or »Hot Tub Time Machine«.

We of course hope that the show will make its way to Europe pretty fast. If not, then the Crane Kick will be brought into action!

26.10.2017 • DECEMBER WILL BE BRIGHT!

Incredible, how NETFLIX is giving full throttle! A short while ago, the new trailer on their in-house action-fantasy-flick BRIGHT went online. If you wouldn't know exactly that this movie is produced by the streaming portal and that it will air there exclusively, then you would probably stand in line at the box office on 22nd December and ask for a ticket.

Take a look at the trailer and let it please you with the cool claims by Will Smith, the hammering soundtrack and the slightly inspired cyberpunk look:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MUY3GVByRUs
 

25.10.2017 • A FAMILIAR FACE

The Cast of AVENGERS 4 is growing. Marvel does come down handsomely and is bringing back a young but very well-known face to the Marvel Cinematic Universe. IMDb officially confirmed that Jurassic World Star Ty Simpkins did join the cast.

The most of you will remember his part as Harley Keener in Iron Man 3. He did help Iron Man to repair his Suit. It remains exciting which role he will be playing.

Avengers 4 will come to cinemas in spring 2019. In order to keep the story of „Avengers 3: Infintiy War“ secret, the topic and the title of it’s sequel will be kept under wraps.

23.10.2017 • DEAD IS WALKING AGAIN

For over half a year THE WALKING DEAD fans had to be really patient - and now the day has come. The new and already 8th season starts on German Pay-TV channel FOX with the first Episode called »Mercy«.

In addition to that it's the 100th episode of the popular zombie series about Rick Grimes and his companions. Don't worry, we are not going to spoil anybody - just one thing: it's going to be a very special season kickoff!
The 16 episodes will be broadcasted in two parts as usual, the first 8 until December and the rest as of February 2018.

20.10.2017 • HAN'S SOLO

Regarding all these news there's absolutely nothing to complain about for STAR WARS fans at the moment.

Now director Ron Howard released the final title of the next »Star Wars« spin-off , which officially finished shooting this week. The movie about Han Solo will be called: »Solo: A Star Wars Story«.

The »Star Wars« spin-off will be playing before the story of the original trilogy und it will hit theaters worldwide in May 2018.
So there won't be much time to wait for new »Star Wars« feed after Episode 8.

19.10.2017 • THERE’S A LOT OF FEAR GOING (C)ON!

This weekend, the FEARCON will take place in Bonn, Germany for the very first time! For three days (20.-22. October 2017), the Maritim Hotel will become a Haunted House with lots of ghosts, zombies and monsters wandering around :-)

Most of the S.P.A.C.E Crew is already on the way to Bonn for setting up the booth today. At 1 p.m. tomorrow the gates will open! If you like to get a glimpe form afar about this event-premiere, you can follow us on our Facebook page and keep an eye on this album.

18.10.2017 • GIZMO'S PICTURE PUZZLE

Today we need your eagle eyes as well as your movie-knowledge! This extremely cool GREMLINS fan-art poster, which "hides" 84 movies, was designed by artist Kevin M. Wilson (ApeMeetsGirl). It was released by the Hero Complex Gallery at New York Comic Con and was - understandably - sold out quickly.

So unfortunately we have to take the digital version of it and our eyes are already hurting due to all these small details - how many are you able to detect? You can find the solution in our SHOCKTOBER album on Facebook ;-)

16.10.2017 • NEWS FROM HAWKINS, INDIANA

About two weeks before the official start, NETFLIX revealed the final trailer on »Stranger Things -Season 2«. We can barely await until the show continues and we hope that the second season will tie with the success of the first. The trailer looks promising, but see for yourself:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=R1ZXOOLMJ8s

Matching to this, McFarlane announced the first wave of »Stranger Things« action-figures. Of course you can already find them in our shop for pre-order.

12.10.2017 • COUNTDOWN TO FEARCON

In exactly one week from now at about this time we will already arrive in Bonn, where we will set up our booth at the very first FearCon. We are very curious about this event premiere and are looking forward to a spooky weekend :-)

Of course we hope that many from you guys will find the time to visit and check by our booth. The program schedule is fully packed with guests, panels and further highlights, so that all creep and horror fans will be delighted for sure!

More infos can be found on fearcon.de.

11.10.2017 • THE REACTIONS ON THE TRAILER...

Of course it was crystal clear that the trailer on THE LAST JEDI would create a huge buzz of reactions and speculations on the web. The US YouTuber Tyrone Magnus - well known both as a huge Star Wars fan and an eminent authority of „reaction videos“ - again takes the lead when it comes to (over)reacting :o)

Lean back for 10 minutes and enjoy his video on the Episode VIII trailer from yesterday:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_Be0LN6MgHc

Who else did escalate like Tyrone?  ;-)

10.10.2017 • FULFIL YOUR DESTINY!

San Diego Comic Con? No! Force Friday? No!! Labor Day? Nope!!!
Ohhh right, during »Monday Night Football«, right on time for the ticket pre-sale launch and the revealment of the theatrical poster, Disney and Lucasfilm are finally injecting us adrenaline in highly concentrated form! Star Wars fans, here is the forceful trailer on STAR WARS - THE LAST JEDI:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Q0CbN8sfihY

How many times are you going to press the "repeat" button ;-) ?

09.10.2017 • FROM NEW YORK TO SHANGHAI

October is yet two weeks old, but already has three namable conventions on record:
From 1st until 5th October, the CICF took place in Guangzhou. And last weekend, the gates opened at the same time in New York and Shanghai for their Comic Cons.

Of course Sideshow was presenting themselves massively at NYCC and had some really cool new items to show, as we think. But take a look for yourself - Mick from Action Figure District made a nice round up of all three events in this article.

06.10.2017 • THE WALKING TAKES ROUND EIGHT!

Zombie fans, on 22nd October it's your date - at least in the US. Because this will be the release day of the 8th season of THE WALKING DEAD. We here in Germany have to wait one day longer. But our anticipation isn't any smaller, for sure ;-)

About two weeks prior to the release of the new season we get to see two teaser trailer - one rahter smooth and one really bangin'. We are excited and hope to get a great and fully loaded 8th season!

05.10.2017 • OCTOBER AT THE MOVIES

Although October has five movie street-dates, the highlights are manageable. As always, we present you the most interesting genre-starts in our monthly preview:

It starts off with today’s Thursday with one of the highlights of this year: BLADE RUNNER 2049! Denis Villeneuve will follow in the director-footsteps of Ridley Scott and will put his ability to the test. But with the cast around of Harrison Ford, Ryan Gosling and Jared Leto it will surely be a success.
According to the first voices of the press and film critics, it’s definitely worth watching and it seems to be an honorable sequel of the classic film of the year 1982. You definitely have to get a huge portion of popcorn and 1 liter of coke because Blade Runner runs nearly 3 hours ;-)
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dZOaI_Fn5o4

Next week, on 12th October, starts with WHAT HAPPENED TO MONDAY a promising thriller with an interesting story. Because of the extreme overpopulation there is one-child policy. As one family has an addition to the family of septuplets, the granddad of the family invents the identity-splitting. Every sister is only allowed to go outside at the day she is named after. And one Monday, Monday is not coming back home... That sounds very interesting and like an innovative script. All of the seven sisters are played by Noomi Rapache, and she will surely buckle down acting.
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hOiWSWLt-NA

On the 19th Shocktober it will get freezing cold at cinemas, because the SNOWMAN is coming... The creepy thriller with Michael Fassbender, Val Kilmer and J.K. Simmons in the main roles is surely worth seeing. Already while watching the trailer you get the goosebumps all over your back.
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3jBaPtX6NYY

And  those who are in shocker mode can stay there, because one week later, at the 10-26, JIGSAW will haunt us again, the 8th part of the »Saw« legacy. As a Saw fan you can’t stay away from it, we just hope that the story doesn’t get too crazy and complex.
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ohs_d2nF1iY

The fifth and last release date of the month is an earlier start on a Tuesday. This can only be a highlight, sure. THOR: RAGNAROK finally is coming to cinemas on 31st October. You nearly couldn’t stay away from the flood of trailers to the 3rd sequel. Well then let’s be excited about how the God of Thunder will fight against his buddy from work in the arena and how the history between the brothers Thor and Loki continues...
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ue80QwXMRHg
 

03.10.2017 • PRODUCT OF THE MONTH OCTOBER 2017

In order to pay proper tribute to Shocktober, we decided to pick the LEATHERFACE Premium Format Figure from Sideshow for our new product of the month!

Unfortuntaley Thomas Hewitt will yet arrive by mid/end of October at our warehouse. But already back then with the announcement we knew that this statue would become a true highlight.

If you did not pre-order this horror icon in Premium Format yet, you should come to a decission soonest, because the edition size of 2000 pieces worldwide seems to be almost gone. And Leatherface in this outstanding conversion definately is a must-have to every »Texas Chainsaw Massacre« fan ;-)
 

02.10.2017 • WELCOME TO SHOCKTOBER!

Summer has definitely moved on, it's getting more and more cloudy and cold outside, days are getting shorter and nights... creepier - welcome to SHOCKTOBER!

Because we love Horror and October is the absolute month of creepiness we start our S.P.A.C.E SHOCKTOBER today! There are going to be some terribly great activities and shocking unveilings. Let's get started today with the »Spooky Specials«, which will replace our regular offers of the week for the next four weeks ;-)

29.09.2017 • MONDAY NIGHT FOOTBALL :-)

Star Wars fans, soon the long wait for the new THE LAST JEDI trailer will come to an end!

The fanpage starwarsnewsnet.com recently posted that they learned from sercure sources that the trailer will be published on 9th October. This date goes along with a hint by Mark Hamill, who answered a fan's question on Twitter a short while ago, that everybody should watch the Monday Night Football game on 9th October closely.

ESPN (the station which will broadcast the game) belongs to DISNEY and already in 2015 the trailer on »The Force Awakens« was published during a Monday Night Football game. Everybody who has no access to ESPN will keep their fingers crossed that the clip will appear on YouTube soonest. But we are pretty sure that this will happen... It will happen.

28.09.2017 • IT IS BACK AND TEACHES US THE MEANING OF FEAR!

Finally it’s time for our adrenaline level to hopefully rise, when we will watch the remake of Stephen King’s IT at the movies!

After the huge success at the boxoffice in the US at the first weekend (123.1 Million Dollars / record start of an R-rated movie) we hope our expectations will be fulfilled.

We are excited about your opinion of the »Loser’s Club« movie and what you will say about the new Pennywise actor »Bill Skarsgard«. Because, if we stay with the truth, to top »Tim Curry« as horror clown won’t be an easy child's play.

26.09.2017 • NEWS FROM THE BRIDGE

Already a couple of moons ago »Star Trek: Discovery« was supposed to go on a journey to distant worlds, but due to delays on casting and some issues on the creative level, it just was able to take off on 25th September.

Even as a „Non-Trekkies" should be able to give a big thumbs up to the new show. There are already some numbers regarding visitor counts. Almost 10 million viewers were watching the first episode on CBS.

Fans in Germany for example are able to stream the new series on Netflix shortly after the US release, every Monday morning. Will you give the new STAR TREK series a chance or will you rather stick to TNG aso.?

25.09.2017 • THEY'LL BE BACK!

James Cameron will bring the TERMINATOR franchise back to life and obviously is in the plans for a new trilogy! »Deadpool« director Tim Miller will write the script and direct the first movie, James Cameron will be producing and Arnold Schwarzenegger and Linda Hamilton will be returning to the screen!

Rumors say that Cameron wants the new movie to carry on directly after »Terminator 2: Judgement Day« and ignore all other parts which came out after this.

We think that this sounds pretty good, because everything in the Terminator franchise after »Rise of the Machines« wasn't that big of a hit. Let's hope that hardcode fans will be amazed... somewhen in 2019 then ;-)

22.09.2017 • THE ONE AND ONLY PUNISHER!

NETFLIX uploaded the first, full trailer on THE PUNISHER yesterday. Jesus - this will be a big hit, for sure! Everybody who loves hard and bloody action and still has no Netflix account yet should subscribe the latest by XX.XX.2017.

Correct, the steaming portal is still keeping the release date of the show a secret - that's a cool marketing strategy, isn't it?!

Definately check out the trailer and get teased by Frank Castle and Metallica, on one of the TV series highlights of fall 2017!

21.09.2017 • SUPER7 - NEXT ROUND

Dear Masters of the Universe fans, last night, SUPER7 revealed the first images of the next 7" deluxe figures. Although pre-order phase will officially start on 2nd October for both waves, we did not want to hide the pictures and infos from you...

The »Club Grayskull« wave 2 will have Man-E-Faces, Mer-Man, Sorceress and Tongue Lashor. And the second »Classics/Collector's Choice« wave comes with Dyla-Mug, Granita, Karg and Wraptrap.

Of course you will be able to pre-order both waves as usual with us - from Monday, 2nd October :-)

20.09.2017 • LARA CROFT IN ACTION!

The wait was long, but now we can astonish Alicia Vikander as Lara Croftfor the first time in moving pictures and on the poster on the TOMB RAIDER reboot!

The first trailer is promising an action-loaded adventure movie, which put the "new" Lara though differently than Angelina Jolie, but definately interesting and appealingly in the spot.

Especially movies based on videogames tend to fail at the boxoffice sometimes. But we all know... hope dies last.

So let's look forward to early next year, when Tomb Raider will hit cinemas on 16th March 2018.
 

19.09.2017 • SIDESHOW x MARK BROOKS

From time to time, Sideshow joins up with chosen artists (like J. Scott Campbell and Stanley Lau lately) for converting their great illustrations and art of famous comic book heroes and especially heroines to outstanding collectibles.

A brandnew project of this kind will be the just announced »Mark Brooks Artist Series Spider-Verse Collection«! In a few weeks - namely during New York Comic Con - we will get to see prototypes of the 1:5 scale statues from Spider-Gwen, Silk and Spider-Man. A first teaser image definately makes us already wanting to see more :-)

15.09.2017 • MICHAEL MYERS WILL BE BACK!

Now it seems to be official: HALLOWEEN will be returning to the big screens in 20118!

John Carpenter himself has read and approved the script of the sequel, which will probably continue the story after part 2 from 1981. If Carpenter will compose the score on the new »Halloween« is not confirmed yet - but in general he seems to be in the mood.

David Gordon Green, who was in charge for movies like »Pineapple Express«, will be directing. We can probably look forward to get shocked by Michael Myers in October of next year, so right in time for Halloween. We think it's great to have this cult slasher back to the cinema soon.

14.09.2017 • LET US INTRODUCE YOU TO THE NEW HELLBOY!

About one month ago we already got the info that the female leading role in the new HELLBOY: RISE OF THE BLOOD QUEEN will be played by Mila Jovovich. Today, the first images of the new Hellboy in person of David Harbour have been revealed. Yes, for those who didn't notice it yet: the role of the big Red won't be played by the anatomic perfectly fitting Ron Perlman anymore, but by the »Stranger Things« actor instead.

By looking at these images, we could almost assume that Perlman himself jumped again into the character, but it actually is the new guy in the Hellboy "outfit". Of course some are doubting if it was the right decission to place a new actor on that character. But we will better have to wait and see it on the first moving images. Or what do you think?

12.09.2017 • RETURN OF THE J.J. JEDI

What a bang! Last week, Disney announced to stop working together with director Colin Trevorrow and today they reveal the reason for that on starwars.com: J.J. Abrams.

He will - together with Chris Terrio - be writing the script on STAR WARS - EPISODE IX and directing the third part of the sequel trilogy.

Since he already proved his skills in »The Force Awakens« we have no doubt that he will also deliver this time. The president of Lucasfilm, Kathleen Kennedy, seems to share this opinion: "With »The Force Awakens«, J.J. delivered everything we could have possibly hoped for, and I am so excited that he is coming back to close out this trilogy."

So now we can not only look forward on 14th December, but also on everything which follows...
 

11.09.2017 • A SIGN OF LIFE FROM LARA

The current issue of the EMPIRE magazine is not just about Star Wars, but it also gives us the chance to get a small but nice insight on the next TOMB RAIDER movie. In the first real scenic image Alicia Vikander is shown in a characteristic Lara Croft pose with bow and arrow.

We all definitely have big expectations of the new movie and we hope that this franchise will get a fresh update from the old movies and will be able to score with great action and the power of a wonderful cast. Apart from Vikander there will be Walton Goggins as Pater Mathias Vogel and Daniel Wu as Lu Ren.

It will hit German cinemas - as far as everything works out - on March 15th 2018.

08.09.2017 • ACTION FIGURE DISTRICT'S PHOTO OF THE MONTH

Every month in the forum of ACTION FIGURE DISTRICT, the members vote their photo of the month in a little contest. In August, a very cool but still simple kitbash of Daryl Dixon as prisoner made it on number 1.

We think that this photo is a great example that everybody - even without any big experience - can dare to approach "kitbashing". Mick (congrats, by the way!) just put a standard body in the 1/6 Scale Prisoner Outfit Set with bare feet and of course added a custom Daryl head. Placed on a proper surface and background (poster-cardboard) and set in scene nicely and photographed with atmospheric light from a great angle... and there you go!

Here you can find the whole article with more photo highlights of the past month:
https://action-figure-district.de/forum-foto-des-monats-august-prisoner-daryl/
 

07.09.2017 • SEPTEMBER AT THE MOVIES

Let's use today's first movie-start-Thursday of the new month to check out all genre highlights in September:

Among a couple of new releases today, AMERICAN MADE is surely the most interesting flick. We get to experience the (true) story of Barry Seal (played by Tom Cruise), one of the biggest drug smugglers of all time. The movie takes place in the 70's/80's and seems to be really worth seeing and extremely cool, according to critics.
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AEBIJRAkujM

Next week, the latest film by Steven Soderbergh - LOGAN LUCKY - will hit cinemas. The trailer let us assume that we can expect an action loaded movie in the taste of »Ocean’s Eleven«. And it comes with a great cast: Channing Tatum, Adam Driver, Seth MacFarlane, Alex Ross, Katie Holmes and Daniel Craig - just to name a few of them.
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kJdWjUCTDAg

On 21st September, the Kingsmen will return to the big screen! The first part was great fun indeed - and if the trailers of the sequel keep what they are promising, then it will definately be worth going to the movies for KINGSMAN: THE GOLDEN CIRCLE!
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=x0nzBJTJGsc

On the last Thursday of the month, 28th September, IT is time for Pennywise! The remake of Stephen King's classic novel is surely expected by horror fans with greatest anticipation. So did you already prepare the red balloons and the wig for going to the movies as Pennywise?
Feel free to post us pictures on our Facebook page - also from your arrest :o)
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sVkODVL6PRM


We think that September comes with a great mixture for all gustos. So, have fun at your local cinema!

06.09.2017 • DISNEY AND THE STAR WARS DIRECTORS...

Even ahead of the production start on STAR WARS - EPISODE IX, the originally signed-up director Colin Trevorrow has to give back the lightsaber!

Why this is happening will of course stay a secret. But the maker of »Jurassic World« now is the next one in line - after the duo Christopher Miller and Phil Lord who were supposed to direct the Han Solo movie - who gets erased from Disney's salaries list.

His successor shall actually be Rian Johnson who is - as we all know - responsible for THE LAST JEDI. Rumors say that he already shot some scenes of part 9 during the works on Episode VIII.

What do you think? Isn't this a strange up and down in the Disney/Lucasfilm headquarter? Well, in the end it's the final movie that really counts - and the result which hopefully will enchant us fans and will keep the Star Wars magic. And if they would eventually come up with the trailer on Episode VIII finally, then we would get an appetizer on that ;-)
 

04.09.2017 • PRODUCT OF THE MONTH SEPTEMBER 2017

With all the Star Wars hype last Friday, our new product of the month really got left behind a bit. So we are thrilled to present you today the WONDER WOMAN ArtFX statue by KOTOBUKIYA as our product of the month September 2017!

Why "thrilled"? Because the super heroine seems to be late on her way from Themyscira and will probably arrive tomorrow. Women... ;-)

But we are totally convinced that Kotobukiya will deliver an outstanding collectible on the latest DC blockbuster here and we are extremely looking forward to unpack one!

In case the official images are already good enough to make your mouth watering, then you should place your order fast, because there are only a few pieces left over from the first batch...

01.09.2017 • FORCE FRIDAY II

On this cool and rainy FORCE FRIDAY II the first new merch of STAR WARS - THE LAST JEDI is allowed to be published for the first time. So NOW it's time for all of us Star Wars fans to count the days until the 14th of December. We're all pretty damn excited about what new collectibles on Episode VIII the manufacturers are going to present us as of today.
Within the scope of Force Friday events in Kong and Japan, last night HOT TOYS has released the brand new 1/6 scale »Executioner Trooper«. You can already pre-order it now on our website.

HAPPY FORCE FRIDAY (even if the whole world, no - the entire galaxy is still waiting for the trailer...)!

31.08.2017 • AZ UTOLSO JEDIK

Where the heck is the trailer?! DISNEY and LUCASFILM are really putting us on the rack... At first the release date everybody speculated was "mid of August". Now it's tomorrow's FORCE FRIDAY II where the first, full trailer of THE LAST JEDI is supposed to be presented! So we can probably expect the World Wide Web to boil over in the next 48 hours when we finally will experience the trailer.

Until then, the Hungarian magazine »Cinemania Mozimania« gives us a super hot cover showing Mark Hamillnek (or Luke Skywalker) in his Jedi outfit from Episode VIII - forceful!

29.08.2017 • WASP FLYING IN!

About four weeks ago, MARVEL officially announced the production start of ANT-MAN AND THE WASP with a cool short clip. Now, starring actress Evangeline Lilly just posted a first picture from the set on Twitter.

On the still you can see her as Wasp in her cool superheroine outfit. This is a great appetizer on the second Ant-Man part, which will probably hit cinemas in August 2018 :-)

23.08.2017 • WE PROUDLY PRESENT...

... Oli Podchul - a child of the 80's, comic book, movie and gaming fan, geek from the heart, a Berliner and now part of the S.P.A.C.E Crew! Oli will work with us as a freelancer on social media and marketing. He will also support us on cooperations and at events.

Our beautiful captial and media metropolitan Berlin is a hot spot for spaced out news, where Oli will source the latest infos for us - and of course you guys. You can reach out to him on social media under his nickname oli.be.geek or be.geek.tv, so the name is program ;-)

Welcome on board, Oli!

22.08.2017

33 years after the release of the cult film GREMLINS there's finally a sign of life of Gizmo and Co.!

Chris Columbus himself announced that he completed the script of the third part of the franchise. He does not want to reveal too much of the story - only that Gizmo will play a key role und that it's going to get gloomy. According to Mister Columbus, all Gremlins fans don't have to worry about one major thing: there will be still used real dolls and no CGI wherever it's possible. That sounds just great :-)

21.08.2017 • TIME TO FINISH THE JOB.

Last week, we had the Defenders kicking-off on Netflix - today the next highlight for all Marvel fans is up on your screen: the first teaser on MARVEL's THE PUNISHER!

The 1-minute clip is called "Demolition" which sounds pretty much like the proper harshness and unfunnyness - just like you would expect it from Frank Castle ;-)

Regarding the release-date, Netflix is still keeping us in the dark a bit, but it seems like the series will start at least in 2017.

18.08.2017 • THE DEFENDERS ARE KICKING OFF!

Weekend is just around the corner and this means that it's bingewatch time, because Marvel's Defenders are available today on Netflix!

Marvel's supergroup of street heroes, consisting of Luke Cage, Jessica Jones, Daredevil and Iron Fist, has finally come together to fight agains evil in New York. The new series contains 8 episodes and so has the perfect binge-length for the weekend :-)

By the way, who is your favorite Defender? Feel free to leave us your comments on Facebook or Instagram!

17.08.2017 • WE ARE MOVING...

...but not with our beloved headquarter (of course, not!), but “virtually”, which means we will move our websites to a new web server.

Therefore just a note on our own purpose: you might be facing technical issues while using our website today. Our outstanding hosting team is of course well prepared and the server work should normally go quick and smooth, but you never know what difficulties might appear on the technical side. In case anybody has problems with placing an order or logging in his account, please try again later or give us a call.

As soon as everything is up and running on our new server, surfing trough our website should go a lot faster. So fasten your seatbelts ;-)

16.08.2017 • ARE YOU READY?

In spring 2018 we can expect a true movie-highlight of next year, because Ernest Cline's READY PLAYER ONE (directed by Steven Spielberg) will hit cinemas around the globe.

Yesterday, Warner gave us the first trailer of the movie in German, so we are more than happy to also share the English version again with you, which was exclusively shown already during San Diego Comic Con.

If you still haven't seen it, please click now and pay close attention to all the great easter eggs! We probably can look forward a lot on this movie... :-)

15.08.2017 • THERE CAN ONLY BE ONE...

...or maybe a few more? How about 350? The Connor MacLeod Figure by Kaustic Plastik is limited to 350 pieces worldwide. The movie from 1986 is definitely a modern fantasy classic. So it is really time to give him a state-of-the-Art monument in 1/6 scale, because the sideshow figures from 2005 are quite a bit dusty, aren't they?
Our friend Mick from the Action Figure District did a great review, taking a closer look to the HIGHLANDER and putting him to the acid, sword and shield test.

Check it out: click here!

10.08.2017 • NEWS FROM MIDDLE-EARTH

WETA WORKSHOP from Neuseeland continues their line of extraordinary collectibles on THE HOBBIT - and how greatly! We did already know the bloodthirsty WAR TROLL from last year's SDCC. About one year later we are finally able to list him for pre-order for you. This good (or bad) boy is limited to just 400 pieces and he comes with a removable helmet.

We actually were totally surprised though by WETA revealing the also strictly limited KING THORIN ON THRONE statue which they didn't even present in San Diego a few weeks ago. Thorin definitely is going to be as impressive as his grandfather Thror and will be an absolute highlight in every Middle-Earth collection!

09.08.2017 • THE DIFFERENT KIND OF MILA

Everbody knows Mila Jovovich, the zombie destroying beauty from RESIDENT EVIL. Her newest main role will be in HELLBOY: RISE OF THE BLOOD QUEEN. She is going to be the villain, which Hellboy has to challenge in this blockbuster. Her character is discribed as "a medieval sorceress who seeks to destroy humankind". Not Guillermo Del Toro, the director of the first two Hellboy movies, but Neil Marshall will direct this time.
What do you guys think about Mila being the "bad girl" this time, instead of being the savior?
We are totally stoked about the sequel of the beloved Hellboy series!

08.08.2017 • THE GRUMPY, HEAVILY ARMED UNCLE FROM THE FUTURE

As we all know, DEADPOOL is a labour of love to Ryan Reynolds. Of course he was the one to bring us the next little Appetizer on the sequel DEADPOOL 2 via Twitter a short while ago.

Ryan's tweet shows a first picture of Josh Brolin as CABLE, who appears fully armed, of course including teddy bear. A berserker!

Let's hope that we soon will get to see the first real trailer with scenes from the film... :-)

03.08.2017 • THE AUGUST AT THE MOVIES

Silly season in the movie industry? Not even close! Even August is fully packed of worth watching blockbusters, and we want to check out our selection with you today:

This Thursday the apes go to war against men again in the 3rd movie of the reboot franchise of PLANET OF THE APES. The reviews on »War for the Planet of the Apes« are even better than of the ones of the both forerunner movies. The story about the leader Caesar doesn’t only come to a militant, but also to an emotional highlight. We are extremely excited, not only because of Andy Serkis as Caesar, but also because about Woody Harrelson!
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1wsJas4D9SQ

Today is also the new EMOJI Movie coming to cinemas. Haven’t we all been eagerly waiting for this since years? No - we have not! Therefore there won’t even be a trailer link here. Period.

Next week, to be exact the 10th August, it will get dark and full of action. What else if the story of this new movie is penned by Stephen King. THE DARK TOWER with Idris Elba as “Revolver Man” and Matthew McConaughey as „Man in Black” in the starring roles starts in the middle of the book series and it looks like it continues the narrative thread of the story beyond the books. If you like the cinematic implementation of Stephen King novels, you can’t get around the cinema tickets here.
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GjwfqXTebIY

From the 24th August Charlize Theron as ATOMIC BLONDE will deliver slaps in the face and loads of bullets. We already linked the fist trailer a few months ago. Let’s hope David Leitch did a good job, because his next project on his list will be Deadpool 2. In our opinion the movie will be splendid. Not only because some cool dudes like James McAvoy and John Goodman will be in on it.
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yIUube1pSC0

On the same day we will get served ANNABELLE 2, another prequel better said spin-off the »Conjouring« franchise. Let’s see how creepy and worthy the movie will be...
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KisPhy7T__Q

A really special highlight will be released on the 29th August, exact 20 years after the last judgment day: TERMINATOR 2: JUDGEMENT DAY will be performing again, and this time in 3D! A great opportunity to experience this Sci-Fi classic again (or for the first time?) on a big screen with great sound. So “I’ll be back…”- Arnie is keeping his promise, very cool!
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2aCC9F8cGCc

At the fifth and last starting Thursday from August it’s worthy to go to the cinema because of those two stars: Ryan Reynolds and Samuel L. Jackson rock rhetorically versed and of course violence abhorring livens up the joint in THE HITMAN'S BODYGUARD. For those who haven’t heard of this action movie yet, do watch the trailer! Attention, spoiler alert: a great and full of action soundtrack from Whitney Houston... ;-)
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Anps6VPe0u8

As you can see, August is a real kick. We think this month can offer a variety of genres and that in fact WITHOUT any superhero movie. Unbelievable, isn’t it?
Have fun in the movies!

01.08.2017 • PRODUCT OF THE MONTH AUGUST 2017

Vampirella is one of the biggest comic book icons. Created by Forrest J Ackerman in 1969 and then brought to paper by the artists Frank Frazetta and Tom Sutton, there's no way around her while talking about modern pop culture. She has appearances in several comic books, participated in a video game and a movie and was released in serveral versions as a collectible.

With that much of fame and sexappeal the time has really come that the vampire lady gives her debut as a 1:6 figure. And who could convert this better than TBLeague (formerly Phicen). The manufacturer was setting new marks with their realistic seamless bodies with steel skeletons in the one-sixth world. This is exactly what our poorly dressed heroine with the sexy costume needs.

In collaboration with Executive Replicas, TBLeague is presenting us the female hero in an outstanding appearance as a 1:6 figure. We are greatly giving applause and concordantly voted for her as our new product of the month :-)

31.07.2017 • FROM SAN DIEGO TO HONG KONG

Sun rises in the East - it's ANIMATION-COMIC-GAME HONG KONG time!

Directly after San Diego Comic Con lots of brand and players in the Asian market are currently presenting themselves at Ani-Com #ACGHK. And although there is not so much new stuff to be seen compared to SDCC, we still think that the images and the video clip from the HOT TOYS booth is definately worth a click. Our friend Mick has put together the most interesting images in an article on ACTION FIGURE DISTRICT. Although it's in German, you can take a look anyways.

27.07.2017 • QS MEANS QUARTER SCALE :-)

After a bit more than a year, HOT TOYS continues with their »Quarter Scale« Series! In San Diego the both counterparties BATMAN and JOKER were already introduced - now you can pre-order those unbelievably detailed and opulent equipped 1/4 scale figures in our online shop!
Even if those two don´t fit in your showcase or your budget, nevertheless we recommend clicking on the pictures, because they are a real treat to the eyes for all the fans of the Christopher Nolan trilogy :-)

25.07.2017 • TODAY'S 1:6 OVERDOSE

Today, we really have a state of emergency in the S.P.A.C.E warehouse, because our long time announced, huge shipment from Asia with like 1 million novelties finally arrived! After our gals Julia and Patricia were done with digging through all boxes for about three hours, we can confirm that everything has arrived safe and sound. This means we will be able to start shipping out pre-orders by the end of this week.

You will be surprised about what great new stuff has been added last minute to this shipment... just to give you a small glimpse you can see the drop-dead, brand new and brand hot VAMPIRELLA in the »Asia Version« by Phicen / TBLeague.

24.07.2017 • MONDAY AFTER SDCC...

This year´s Comic Con mania did come to an end. At least nearly, because now we have to get the scored exclusives over the big pond as soon as possible. Besides that, all brands surely will spew out a lot of novelties in the next two to three weeks to us, the distributors, so we can list most of what was shown in San Diego for pre-order.

In the meanwhile we go back to our normal madness ;-) Our friend Mick is already on the way home  and we are ringing the bell for the second round of our S.P.A.C.E SALE SUMMER. This week you have the chance to grab items from WETA for a bargain price. It’s best to step in our special offers category right away...

19.07.2017 • COMIC CON FUN KICKS OFF TOMORROW!

Tonight at 3:00am (which is 06:00pm San Diego local time) the Comic Con 2017 officially opens its gates! For about 3 hours folks can take a sneak peek into the holy halls of the San Diego Convention Center during the preview night, before it really kicks off on Thursday.

We are totally excited in our S.P.A.C.E headquarter and are looking forward to the weekend like crazy! Our colleague Mick is already on the way to us and will be here just in time for our End-of-work-get-in-mood-for-Comic-Con-beer.

From tomorrow on (Thursday) we will feed you the whole weekend with the most interesting news from the Con. Short and precise will be the highlights on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter - at the Action Figure District you can read more accurate news about the line-ups of the most important brands.

Because it was so funny the last time, we will go live again this year! Tune in on Thursday, Friday and Saturday at 06:00pm on Facebook and let us chat about the Comic Con fun. Tuning in will be rewarded, ‘cause you can win something every day!

18.07.2017 • SDCC2017 EXCLUSIVES: SUPER7

We only have to sleep two times - then it's time for San Diego Comic Con :-)
Our friends from SUPER7 are more enthusiastic than ever this year when it comes to SDCC. Besides their regular booth at the show they will have the »Skeletor’s Lair« Pop-Up Shop for all Masters of the Universe fans in a specially rented location downtown. Yahoo, it’s a SKELEBRATION!

On MOTU we can look forward to the following exclusives: the ReAction Figure Carry Case with an exklusive Mini-Comic Mer-Man, He-Man and Skeletor as 2“ Micro Japanese Vinyl Figures in red and black, variants of the 5“ Skeletor and Beast Man Japanese Vinyl Figures, 7“ resin figures of He-Man, Skeletor and She-Ra, a Trap Jaw ReAction Figure as Mini-Comic version, a Black Possessed Skeletor as variant of the Curse of the three Terrors version, M.U.S.C.L.E. 4-packs with Wind Raider & He-Man and Roton & Skeletor in color variants and a wonderful Art Print Portfolio set by artist Rudy Obrero.
Premiering will be items like the figures of the third ReAction wave (with Teela, Stratos, Zodac aso.) as well as a couple of shirts and other gimmicks. These we will be able to list regularly on our website after the con, so there's no need to make extra effort or pay sky-high prices for them.

Of course Super7 has a lot of other great licenses besides MOTU. Other SDCC exclusives will be: the Metallic Blue Mayhew Alien Queen 5“ Japanese Vinyl Figure, the Furious Fossil Caveman Dino as 4“ Japanese Vinyl Figure, a bunch of new M.U.S.C.L.E. figures from Aliens, a Star Wars / The Worst crossover set consisting of 6 Star Worst ReAction Figures, the super cool ReAction Lord of Light as black & gold variant from Heavy Metal and lots more. The brand new ReAction figure stands will also become available in our standard product range, so you will be able to pre-order them soon.

This was just a summary of the Super7 items that seem to be the most interesting from our perspective. If you wish to get more detailed infos on the exclusives, about the many variants or about the Super7 licenses like Unkle, Iron Maiden, The Worst, Alien or of course Masters of the Universe in general, then feel free to get in touch with us!
 

17.07.2017 • THE S.P.A.C.E SALE SUMMER 2017

Attention dear deal hunters...
Today we are kicking off our S.P.A.C.E SALE SUMMER!

We thought that we have to defy the summer low and also wanted to sweeten the shopping pleasure to all holiday-dislikers among you. So we will have the following promotion for the upcoming weeks for you:

Every week, we will pick one manufacturer from our product range. Several mixed items of this brand will be placed for exactly one week in the SALE, where you will have the opportunity to grab the best deals of the summer. Of course everything will only be valid while current supply lasts and only in the appropriate week.

We will start the S.P.A.C.E SALE SUMMER with the manufacturer MEZCO TOYZ. So if you are still looking for some Breaking Bad variant figures, or in case you would like to complete your Mortal Kombat or Sons of Anarchy cction-figure collection or if you just would like to try one of the One:12 Collective figures, then you should quickly check out our SALE ;-)

Next week the featured brand will be WETA. If you would like to have a special brand featured, just let us know.

And now have fun with hunting down our deals!

14.07.2017 • SDCC2017 EXCLUSIVES: SIDESHOW

Like every year at SDCC, the SIDESHOW COLLECTIBLES booth will be one of the highlights at the show. That’s why we today are taking a look at the exclusives that Sideshow will bring with them:

Besides a variety of fine art giclee prints, there will be a BATMAN: THE DARK KNIGHT RETURNS bust and two different 1/6 scale IRON MAN figures. Nevertheless those three are from third-party manufacturers! The exclusive »Blue Version« BATMAN bust from Prime 1 will be a limited edition of 500 pieces.

The IRON MAN MARK XXIII – SHADES and the IRON MAN MARK XLI – BONES in the »Retro Armor Version« are both out of Tony Stark’s House Party Protocol and of course from Hot Toys. SHADES will come in a metallic color variant with a circular dynamic base. But BONES will have an adapted base, which can make the armor parts “fly”. Looks pretty rad! As usual both of the IRON MEN have appropriate LED features.

Honestly those exclusives don’t knock our socks off - what do you think?

13.07.2017 • JULY AT THE MOVIES

It indeed is a little late for our monthly round-up of all movie starts, but better late than never. So let's use today's release of SPIDER-MAN: HOMECOMING properly and take a look on what will hit the big screens in July...

Already since last week, the Minions are around again! Unbelievable how the hype on these little yellow guys continues. DESPICABLE ME 3 definately is a must for all minions and animation lovers.
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=euz-KBBfAAo

Today, on 13th July, the friendly spider from the neighbourhood gets its first official and very own appearance in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Spider-Man is being coached by Tony Stark a.k.a. Iron Man. This alone should be taking care for enough laughter. We are very excited to see Tom Holland as Spidy in SPIDER-MAN: HOMECOMING!
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rk-dF1lIbIg

It will go on fantastically next week, when we can dive into the world of VALERIAN on 20th July. We all know Luc Besson for his outstanding productions and visuals, also in the Sci-Fi genre. Everybody who knows and loves the comic books from the 60's will extremely look forward to the movie. Whoever does not know the comics can surely also reserve a ticket, because the trailers look impressive enough.
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7p4uYsZhGl0

On the last starting weekend of the month, surely Christopher Nolan will draw many of you into the movie theatre, because his war drama DUNKIRK will hit the screens on 27th July. This will not only be thrilling and visually impressive, but also very emotional and hefty. We're excited!
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=F-eMt3SrfFU

Also on 7-27 we can celebrate the currently very hyped BABY DRIVER. The action flick is standing on a strong 8 on IMDB. Director Edgar Wright, which we all know from such cult movies like »Shaun of the Dead« or »Scott Pilgrim, obviously delivers his next big bang here. No wonder that stars like Jamie Foxx, Kevin Spacey and Jon Bernthal wanted to play with „Baby“ (played by Ansel Elgort.
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zTvJJnoWIPk

You see, there's no summer hole in this year. Good stuff :-)

12.07.2017 • 1984 ONLY GETS STRANGER

On 27th October, the super cool Netflix series STRANGER THINGS kicks off for the next round! The streaming portal just released a new clip and the poster for the new season.

This definitely is a great teaser - not only on season 2, but also on the newly announced action-figures by McFarlane. Let’s keep our fingers crossed that we will get to see them at San Diego Comic Con.

11.07.2017 • SDCC2017 EXCLUSIVES: GENTLE GIANT

The exclusives from Gentle Giant are on our spotlight today.
We definitely have to point out the NEGAN BUST from THE WALKING DEAD, which will be at least as interesting as the Michonne from 2013.
The statue of Skottie Young´s GERTRUDE from I HATE FAIRYLAND and the apparently 3D printed SPIDER-MAN Animated Statue seem to stand out the most from the other exclusives. STAR WARS fans can be really excited, because there will be a few novelties. The HOLOGRAPHIC PRINCESS LEIA COLLECTORS GALLERY STATUE will be our highlight in any case. Besides her Highness, there is a HAN SOLO CONCEPT BUST, as well as a LUKE SKYWALKER BUST X-WING PILOT and a DARTH VADER BUST in the 40th Anniversary Edition announced. Totally vintage-styled there will be a Kenner Jumbo DIANOGA TRASH MONSTER - very trashy!
We don´t know the accurate edition sizes by Gentle Giant yet, but one thing is for sure: the limited editions don’t come in huge numbers.

06.07.2017 • SDCC2017 EXCLUSIVES: NECA

NECA also announced their SDCC 2017 exclusives.
Besides the Coraline Set, there will be a Death Figural Doll from BILL & TED'S BOGUS JOURNEY.
There is also an amazing TMNT figure set, which is limited to 5.000 pieces worldwide. But we guess it won´t be a bargain.
Our highlights will be the Sewer Mutation Warrior Alien and the Jungle Briefing Dutch from PREDATOR.
 

05.07.2017 • SDCC 2017 COUNTDOWN

Dear fans of the modern popculture, in exactly two weeks we will have that time of the year... because then, SAN DIEGO COMIC CON will open its gates and we will all reach out with highest excitement to California.

Today, we officially are kicking off our SDCC 2017 COUNTDOWN! This means for you that you can now start to submit your wishes on SDCC exclusives. As in the past years, we've set up a special sub-page on our website where you can read further details and also get in touch with us properly.

In the next 14 days we will introduce hot picks of this year's exclusives to you, so that we all can get in the right mood for the event of the year :-)

04.07.2017 • WELCOME TO THE TEAM, PATRICIA!

We’re very glad to introduce our new teammate Patricia to you today! Patricia had her first day at the S.P.A.C.E Headquarter yesterday and she actually did appear again this morning ;-)

Of course the upcoming weeks will have a very intense training, but July with all the events is just perfect for getting into our crazy world of collectibles. Patricia will mainly take care for communication and customer service along with Tobi. You can reach her under patricia@space-figuren.de or of course through our Facebook and Instagram page.

Welcome to the Crew, Patricia!

03.07.2017 • PRODUCT OF THE MONTH JULY 2017

When it gets heroic, very female and bloody on top, then all guys can’t hardly stand to unpack and marvel at newly arrived statues. That happened last week with the brandnew RED SONJA Premium Format Figure from Sideshow.

Gladly Sideshow again delivered an A+ work here and did justice to the expression “Premium” in all aspects - no matter if it’s box design, sculpt or paint job! So we came to the unanimous resolution to make the red haired icon from »Dynamite Entertainment« our current product of the month!

The outstanding SHE-DEVIL WITH A SWORD Premium Format Figure is limited to 3000 pieces worldwide and still available with us in a low quantity. So in case you’ve missed the first version of Red Sonja from 2014, then you should act fast this time...

29.06.2017 • AN APE-IC WAR IS COMING UP!

There are still a couple of blockbusters to come in this year. Of course the third part of the PLANET OF THE APES prequel-franchise has to be mentioned along, but what will be a total surprise is surely the potential that this movie has. It will probably leave all other films behind. Some first screenings already took place in the US and the reviews and ratings are just excellent.

So for all of us in Europe (especially in Germany) - stay away from spoilers, because also this time it will be similar to Wonder Woman... we have to wait some more weeks than the Americans until we can make our marge to the WAR FOR THE PLANET OF THE APES...

28.06.2017 • FROM SAW TO JIGSAW

It was well known since many months that the legendary and super successful SAW franchise would get another sequel. The original title of the horror thriller »SAW: LEGACY« has now officially been renamed to »JIGSAW«! This definately does sound exciting and the first artwork on the movie looks pretty cool.

We all surely would love to see a first trailer, wouldn't we? And it's about time for it, because the horror flick will hit cinemas already on Halloween...

27.06.2017 • IF IS SOMETIMES TAKES LONGER... THEN IT'S THE HULKBUSTER!

Probably never before any figure from Hot Toys had a longer production phase than the MMS285 HULKBUSTER from »Avengers: Age of Ultron«. Therefore we collectors never had to wait thaaaaaaaat long for a figure to arrive. But according to the 1/6 makers from Hong Kong, the long wait will soon have its end!

This fall will finally be the time for the arrival of Tony Stark's colossal battle armor. Hot Toys is promising us an outstanding action-figure and the latest images are definately underlining this statement, as we think. But take a look by yourself:

https://www.facebook.com/pg/hottoys/photos/?tab=album&album_id=10154614864682344

22.06.2017 • WE HAVE THE ULTIMATE POWER :-)

Masters of the Universe fans - today it's your turn of the total joy escalation, because we just received our SUPER7 shipment with the brandnew MOTU ULTIMATES figures today!

Congratulations to everybody who pre-ordered in time, because as Super7 already predicted up front, the production of the Ultimates was very limited and will be totally sold out soon. Therefore we only have some very few single figures left to offer.

And since everything around »Masters of the Universe« means so much to us, as you all know, we can throw one more in the ring: every customer will receive an exclusive, strictly limited MOTU sticker on top from us! The 1st sticker from our own collection is inspired by a scene from one of the first MOTU mini-comics of the 1980's. We hope that you'll like it ;-)
 

21.06.2017 • IT MAY BE THE FIRST DAY OF SUMMER,

But WINTER is here!
HBO just put up the brandnew trailer on GAME OF THRONES season 7. Who dares to watch?
We don’t ;-)

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1Mlhnt0jMlg
 

20.06.2017 • HOT TOYS‘ APPETIZER ON SPIDER-MAN

The partnership between Hot Toys and Marvel seems to be very intense since years. On many blockbusters like »Avengers« for example, Hot Toys sponsered and organized special events and exhibitions in several Asian cities. So they do for SPIDER-MAN: HOMECOMING.

Until 13th July there will be a big shopping event with the spider at the »Langham Place« mall in Hong Kong. Of course Hot Toys has all the Spider-Men from the new movie as prototypes on display!

And parallel to that, they just revealed the »Peter Parker« head from the Homecoming figure. What do you think - isn't Tom Holland nailed extremely well here?!

16.06.2017 • THE DARK CRYSTAL COMES BACK!

What a joyful announcement for fantasy-fans of the first hour... After several years of rumors and hopes, the streaming portal NETFLIX makes us fantasy children of the 80's and followers of the great Jim Henson more than happy, because there will definately be a 10-episode series on »THE DARK CRYSTAL« in 2018!

The story will probably take place ahead of the one from the movie and it will be called »The Dark Crystal: Age of Resistance«. Really fantastic that there's already a 55-seconds teaser and an official press release :-)

15.06.2017 • POWER. GRACE. WISDOM. WONDER

WONDER WOMAN is also finally hitting cinemas in Europe. Today it's officially starting in Germany!

If you've already seen the film, then you will surely eventually definately maybe agree that it is worth seeing... No, to be serious - the movie is worth to be seen, already because of the gorgeous Gal Gadot. She just fits perfectly into the role of the allmighty amazone, what she actually prooved in »Batman v Superman«.

In that sense: let' raise the curtain for Princess Diana or Diane Prince!

 

12.06.2017 • THE BLACK PANTHER IS SNEAKING IN...

Past weekend, again a couple of nice, brandnew trailers have been put online by all kinds of studios. The highlight of course was the first trailer on Marvel's BLACK PANTHER:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dxWvtMOGAhw

You should definately check out the clip immediately, because it's cut so cool, underlined with a blasting soundtrack and it introduces, besides the actual hero »T'Challa«, another very interesting character... the totally freaked out and extremely charismatic »Klaw«, played by the great Andy Serkis.

09.06.2017 • WALKING DEAD IN ONE SIXTH

If your collection is mainly set on the 1:6 scale and you are also a »The Walking Dead« fan, then you were surely chewing a couple of zombie bones through frustration during the last years. Though THREEZERO is the licensee on the famous AMC show since 2013, there so far - to be more specific during the last 4 years - has been just one character figure (Rick Grimes) released from the cast.

Our friend Mick from ACTION FIGURE DISTRICT put the spotlight on the "delays of licensed figures < > bootlegs" topic in his latest review of the »1/6 Carol Character Sets«. Interesting!

08.06.2017 • FOR THE HONOR OF GRAYSKULL

Masters of the Universe collectors, heads up: the wonderful MOTU 1:5 scale statue line from SIDESHOW will be expanded once more - and this time it will be the Princess of Power herself!

With SHE-RA, our all-time favorite hero He-Man will get reinforcement and your MOTU statues collection will gain one more outstanding highlight. It's really remarkable how much creative detail Sideshow is putting into this line - no matter if it's sculpt, painting or the materials. So after He-Man, Skeletor and Evil-Lyn, we can now look forward to the keeper of Crystal Castle :-)

You are more than welcome to pre-order the She-Ra statue with us now. She will probably be released towards the end of next year...
Oh, and if there's any late starter out there among you... we still do have exactly 1 last piece of the He-Man statue in stock:

06.06.2017 • JUNE AT THE MOVIES

Since June is already about one week old, it’s really time for our overview of the most interesting movie starts of “our industry”:
Already last week, on 1st June, the reboot of BAYWATCH was hitting cinemas. We prefer to rather skip and not comment this one ;-) Well: in case anybody of you desires a little collectible on the cult TV show from the 90’s, we can offer on demand the Funko PoPs! from David Hasselhoff and Pamela Anderson.

So let’s head on to the first fantasy blockbuster of the month, which will be starting this Thursday: THE MUMMY. As regards content, this flick has nothing to do with the 3 Brandon Frasier movies, but it’s a re-issue of a very old story, of course state-of-the-art in a visual overdose, if you look at the trailers. Let’s hope that also the content is appealingly and that the writers did not only put Tom Cruise as the star in the spotlight.

One week later, on 15th June, we surely all have to be on duty at the cinema, because then Gal Gadot alias WONDER WOMAN will also rage over the big screens in Germany and Europe! The movie already started in the US and jumped into the raking of IMDB with a stable 8 right away! Also Gal’s appearance in »Batman v Superman« was convincing for most DC fans. Therefore the pleasant anticipation on the highlight of June is surely big.
Speaking of anticipation: those of you who pre-ordered the Hot Toys 1/6 Wonder Woman from »Dawn of Justice« in time can soon look forward to the release. Hot Toys obviously pimped this figure in many details for the final production - this will be a good one!
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hU5BswQsdVM

On 22nd June Michael Bay again will invite us to the fight „Autobots versus Decepticons“.TRANSFORMERS: THE LAST NIGHT already is the 5th part of the franchise and will be a big bang as usual. The cast is a blast with actors like Mark Wahlberg, John Goodman, Anthony Hopkins, Optimus Prime and Bumblebee and everybody who already enjoyed the previous movies surely can’t pass by the new one.
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6Vtf0MszgP8

These are the highlights for June for the fantasy and fiction genre. Enough choice for some nice evenings at the movies :-)

01.06.2017 • PRODUCT OF THE MONTH JUNE 2017

Right on time for the first of the new month we of course set a product on our throne.

This time all eyes are on Link, actually on the new Link PVC statue from First4Figures from the shortly released Nintendo game »The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild«.

All gaming or Zelda fans among you surely can't get enough from this figure - so can't we ;-). And that's exactly why this great collectible deserves to be our favorite of the month June.

31.05.2017 • NEILL BLOMKAMP'S NEW ALIEN!

What happened to Neill Blomkamp's ALIEN project...? Thanks to Ridley Scott probably nothing, because it looks like if Mr. Scott completely took the whole Alien franchise back under his own wings...

Not much of a problem for the very creative and busy youngster director, because he just turned over to a new, totally own project:

OATS STUDIOS is the name of the new movie factory, with which Blomkamp will make a series of experimental SciFi short movies. The trailer on »Volume 1« just went online:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zoiezEB9n2Q

On the first sight this looks like "Predators meets The Walking Dead meets District 9" - definately promisingly and apocalypsy! We're excited :-)

30.05.2017 • ARAGORN, SON OF ARATHORN...

Today we have to take up the Gondorian cudgels on behalf of ASMUS, a wonderful manufacturer from Taiwan in the 1/6 industry:

Watching Asmus competing with Hot Toys as a serious competitor - mainly thanks to their great work on their »Lord of the Rings« license - already made us very happy. Their closeness to the fans, the open ears for collectors and the attending motivation for a high quality level really is remarkable. So Asmus, as one of some very few brands with an own production facility, made themselves autonomous and plan to be distant even more from the "mass market" and possible compromises when it comes to quality and manufacturing. You can learn more about this on ACTION FIGURE DISTRICT and from the interview which Mark Chuah from »One Sixth Republic« did with Asmus boss Andy Hsu.

And to prove that all this is not just hot air, Asmus is demonstrating their philosophy with their latest announcement - the revised "slim version" of their ARAGORN figure! Although Strider comes in a rather lightened version regarding his accessories, he will have a total newly done and improved head. Asmus even raises the bar that high, to hand-finish the rooted hair in their own (barber-)studio, instead having it done at the factory. They want to make sure that the head will come with the perfect finish and make us collectors happy with the screen-acurate Strider out of the box. That is exemplary! But even more exemplary are the plans to come up with "expansion packs", parallel to the re-releases. This means that everybody out there, who already had the first version of f.e. Aragorn on his shelf, can pimp his figure.

We are already pleasantly anticipating the new Strider. If you would like to grab one of the strictly limited 800 pieces, you are more than welcome to do so here :-)
 

25.05.2017 • JACK IS BACK!

It's not only a holiday in Germany and Fathers Day today, but also fans of »Pirates of the Caribbean« will be delighted:
Exactly six years after »On Stranger Tides« the fifth part of the pirates saga »Dead Men Tell No Tales« starts in theaters!

Of course there will be Johnny Depp in his famous role of Captain Jack Sparrow as well as new faces like Academy Award winner Javier Bardem as Salazar.

Whether death catches Jack Sparrow and part 5 will be the final one? We'll see... Anyway we look forward to this movie and hopefully it will be able to carry up the previous iconic parts.

23.05.2017 • STAR ACE GOES TARANTINO

At the Hong Kong Toy Festival last weekend, there was also represented the 1/6 Scale forge of Star Ace.
They caused an absolute highlight: exhibited were Vincent Vega (John Travolta) and Jules Winnfield (Samuel L. Jackson) from Quentin Tarantinos PULP FICTION.
Seemingly Star Ace secured several licenses of Tarantino-blockbusters because there was also exposed a Uma Thurman aka THE BRIDE from Kill Bill in 1/6 Scale.
We look forward to experiencing what they will come up with.

22.05.2017 • STROKE UPON STROKE

Threezero is putting the pedal to the metal, at least with revealing new figures.
Three weeks ago we told you about the Asian manufacturer’s plans for the future and which figures they are going to produce.
Now we have a new update for you and this is an amazing information for all THE WALKING DEAD fans: Threezero announced a teaser picture of a 1/6 Scale Negan.
Hopefully we can list the leader of the Saviors in our pre-order section soon.

18.05.2017 • ALIEN: COVENANT IN CINEMAS

Today Ridley Scotts ALIEN: COVENANT starts officially in German cinemas. People in the USA have to wait one more day.
The newest Alien-Saga movie is a sequel of PROMETHEUS and it acts ten years after this storyline.
Everybody who plans to watch ALIEN: COVENANT in cinema this weekend: have a great time and enjoy it! :-)

17.05.2017 • THE WITCHER ON NETFLIX

Geralt of Riva drafts on our TV Screens as a TV Series in english language on Netflix.
Andrzej Sapkowski, the writer of the WITCHER novel, acts as a creative adviser for this project.
There is no official release date yet, so we have to be patient :-(

16.05.2017 • WHAT A COMEBACK

WOW - that was our first impression of the new Hot Toys announcement: Captain JACK SPARROW from PIRATES OF THE CARIBBEAN 5 in 1/6th scale.

But the main point which makes this new release very exciting is that it´s a new figure in the DX-Line.
The last DX figure was delivered more than 3 years ago. Who would have thought Hot Toys continues the line?
And now this...of course, we will list this figure for pre-order soon.

11.05.2017 • AT S.P.A.C.E WE CAN HEAR YOU SCREAM

Our Tobi does sports now! Sure that he needs a run-shirt ;-)

Are you also into sports and would like to have such a nice shirt like Tobi? Or are you just a hardcore ALIEN fan who would die for the shirt, a poster and 2 movie tickets for ALIEN: COVENANT?!
Then participate on our facebook lottery and grab one of the five ALIEN fan packages! Please note that the tickets are only valid for movie theatres in Germany.

09.05.2017 • BY THE POWER OF GRAYSKULL...

Heads up, MOTU fans! Super7 just revealed the first new MOTU Classics and Filmation figures and opened the pre-order phase for them.

This means that, after the Ultimates (which are ready from production by the end of May and then immediately get on the way to us), we will be delightened with brandnew characters :-)

Of course we already put up both waves for pre-order on our website - so check in quickly!

08.05.2017 • NEWS FROM THREEZERO

During the last couple of days, the Asian manufacturer THREEZERO revealed some interesting news and announcements. With the »1/6 Scale Special Agent Fox Mulder« figure from X-FILES we will get a real TV show dinosaur. In case you still have the old Sideshow figures in your collection, then you can monitor the evolution in the 1/6 figure industry a bit. We are already excited...

Of course, one of their major licenses - THE WALKING DEAD - draws a lot of attention. So it was really cool to get a little warm up on this franchise, although it was just a "coming soon" graphic without a specific character announcement. Let's keep our fingers crossed and hope that it will indeed be Daryl Dixon who's the next reveal in this line. He is long time overdue.

Oh, and speaking of "major": Threezero also gained the license on Paramount's GHOST IN THE SHELL blockbuster and just announced their »1/6 Scale Major« figure. We think that the portrait of Scarlett Johansson as Motoko Kusanagi already looks pretty good on the first prototype images, so let's hope that the release of this figure won't take too long. We'll list the figure for pre-order on our site during this week :-)

04.05.2017 • HAPPY MAY THE 4th!

A great 4th May, dear STAR WARS fans! Of course we prepared a very special goodie for you on this very special day:

We will add a FREE Jakks Pacific STAR WARS BIG SIZE figure to every online-order which is placed today (between 0:00 and 23:59 o'clock) and contains in-stock items of at least 50,-- EUR value!

In that sense - May the 4th be with You!

(No coupon is necessary for this promotion! We will add one figure to every qualified order. The free figure will be picked by us randomly and upon availability. Maximum 1 figure per customer, even on higher valued orders. This promotion is valid only while supply lasts. You are welcome to mention your favorite character.)

03.05.2017 • MAY AT THE MOVIES

Also May seems to be a very interesting month for movie-lovers - especially when it comes to phantastic movies!

Tomorrow, on May 4th, the highly celebrated psycho-thriller GET OUT will hit cinemas also here. Looking at the trailer, the movie appears to be a smugly two-class society drama on the first sight, but then all of a sudden some shocking scenes come up, which makes you assume that this movie will turn into a big suspense with unpredictable twists and shockers... So if you like thrilling cinema and love to nibble some fingernails instead of popcorn, then you are surely right at GET OUT. The movie already gained a 8.0 on IMDB, by the way!

Also slightly creepy will be the mood in A MONSTER CALLS, a visually very impressive fantasy-/mystery flick. The young and very charismatic actor Lewis MacDougall is playing his second big hollywood role (after "Pan" in 2015), alongside Sigourney Weaver and Felicity Jones - and of course the Ent like tree-monster, which Connor will be encountering.

Next week, on May 11th, we can look forward to the new film by Guy Ritchie. This time, the British cult director dedicaded himself to the theme KING ARTHUR. The trailers appear very epic, of course, and do have a very special touch, which surely makes this historical classic worth seeing.

Run. Can a tagline be any more clearer? Already the teaser poster of the next part of the Alien franchise surely made the hearts of all hardcore fans beat faster. On May 18th, 20th Century Fox will bring us the sequel to Prometheus - ALIEN: COVENANT - to the big screen. Director Ridley Scott apparently did not save on gore and spitting blood. In case the flick will slip through as a PG-13 at cinemas, we can probably expect an unrated extended cut on DVD/Blu-ray later... This will be fun!

Of course Disney may not be missing in May. As a grand finale Captain Jack Sparrow will visit us again at the movies in the 5th part of PIRATES OF THE CARRIBEAN. This time, he will be chased by the half-rotten Captain Salazar. Fans of the series surely will have to be on duty for a meeting with the cast around Johnny Depp, Geoffrey Rush, Keira Knightley and Orlando Bloom on May 25th. We're excited to see if DEAD MEN TELL NO TALES will be able to delight us - sound and pictures will surely be awesome!

02.05.2017 • PRODUCT OF THE MONTH MAY 2017

For collectors and lovers of classic action-figures (in the 7" scale) NECA's "Ultimate" line surely is a pure pleasure. Across the board NECA was able to convince us in this line with enormous creativity and detail. Just remember such highlights as the Ultimate Kratos from the classic game »God of War« or the Ultimate Leatherface from the cult horror flick »Texas Chainsaw Massacre«. No wonder that many of the so far released Ultimate Figures are totally sold out now...

The latest release of the series, the ULTIMATE GIZMO from the very famous GREMLINS franchise, also immediately convinced us and made it straight  to the product of the month May 2017!

The comprehensive accessories and especially the many "bulding" possibilities on Gizmo's face (including the movable eyes) make you wanting to take the figure immediately out of its - very beautifully designed - packaging and play with it. But, while doing this, please never forget the three golden rules:
keep the Mogwai out of sunlight, don’t let the Mogwai get wet, never feed the Mogwai after midnight!

28.04.2017 • GOING BACK TO ETERNIA...

After three decades, the time has come... He-Man and the »Masters of the Universe« will be returning in a live-action movie to the big screen in December 2019!

"Finally" everybody would think, because rumors about a new film with He-Man and co. have been around since years and the project has been put on hold ever since.

More detailed infos are still rarely available so far, but already the fact that we will be able to look forward to our old fellows from planet Eternia makes this official announcement from SONY a true highlight of the day :-)
 

27.04.2017 • THE ANTI-SUPERHEROES ARE BACK!

The time has come - the GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY are raging again today on the big screen!

Of course the Marvel heroes have to face a new adventurous journey with numerous dangers - we certainly can expect again lots of funny gags and a new funky soundtrack. We are already curious, what Vol. 2 will come up with and how Thanos will have his appearance... And the cast this time gained two real Hollywood legends with Sylvester Stallone and Kurt Russell - YESSSSS!

25.04.2017 • NEED ANOTHER TAILORED SUIT?

20th Century Fox just released the first trailer on »Kingsman: The Golden Circle« and - as expected - it really is a tasty appetizer on the sequel:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6Nxc-3WpMbg

The teaser is cut really cool and underlined with a great soundtrack, but it does not tell too much about the story... besides that there seems to be a new, by the Wild West inspired organisation crossing the way of the Kingsmen. So let's look forward to the movie coming this fall... :-)
 

21.04.2017 • GOODBYE!

It has been a bit more than two years since I joined the S.P.A.C.E crew. And those two years have just been amazing - what a great time! But now it's time to say "goodbye"...

On next week's Tuesday I will have my last day at S.P.A.C.E before I'm heading to Lisbon. A couple of month ago I got a job abroad and so I got the chance to make my dreams come true and leave Germany. But now the farewell is pretty hard.

Now there's nothing more to say but thank you - all for the great time I had here with you guys. You as our costumers make our great jobs possible. That's what I am really thankful about. And I hope to join the one or other event in the future to meet with you again.

With this in mind: I wish you all the best, a lot of amazing collectibles and keep it bowling!

Cheers!

Björn

20.04.2017 • CLOAK & DAGGER!

Marvel expands the TV series universe and get us the very first trailer of »Cloak and Dagger«, that is addressed to a younger audience.

Cloak and Dagger are pertained to be the underdogs in Marvel's comic universe. Both eloped from home and feel now homey in New York City - such as their colleagues Daredevil and Luke Cage.

19.04.2017 • STAR WARS CELEBRATION

There's no need to say much about THE highlight at the Star Wars Celebration - the teaser for Episode VIII. We surely all watched it many times so far.

But of course there has been more in order in Orlando at this weekend. There have also been some of our collectibles forges at the spot. Some had their own booth, the others joined the accordingly panel.  Among others Gentle Giant, Anovos and Kotobukiya showed some highlights.

And at the Sideshow/Hot Toys booth we could see some well-known characters live for the first time. We found some clips on YouTube, take a look:

15.04.2017 • A SIGN OF LIFE FROM THE OFF...

What a mess! Of course, technical malfunctions can happen from time to time with any telephone provider. Luckily such - very rarely appearing - disruptions usually are solved within a few hours max, which doesn't hurt too much. But this time, the stuation is becoming a drama soon...

Since Wednesday we have to deal with a dead telephone- and internet line, which of course is extremely annoying during such highly frequented times as Easter, combined with an event like the STAR WARS Celebration.

Thanks to the help of a couple of friends and nice neighbours (who luckily have their line with another provider), we were at least able to bring our newsletter-emailing-computer online, to get this week's newsletter out to you ;-)

So true to the motto "better late than never" you are getting the newsletter from Thursday today. Check it out, because we included a big Easter promotion for you.

And though we were not able to follow the panels at STAR WARS Celebration here in our headquarter as planned, the EPISODE VIII teaser yesterday really sweetened our evening :-)

By the way: just to be able to get this news message out to you, Sven is holding the line in his best Doc Brown style outside in the yard... :o)

13.04.2017 • ONLINE-SHOP WITHOUT ONLINE :-(

Because of a big breakdown at our internet and phone provider we are currently offline. Already since yesterday afernoon we are cut from the outerworld.
Since it seems to be a fierce technical problem we can not say when we will be back at the moment. You can browse our website as uasal and also place orders.

Nevertheless we can not answer your mails and get the orders shipped or take your phone call. So we do not not reply because we don't like you... ;-)

So we ask for your patience and promise to take care of everything as soon as we are back online!

11.04.2017 • THE SMALL WOH!

Last weekend the WEEKEND OF HELL took place at the Turbinenhalle in Oberhausen - for the first time in April before it comes to the bigger event in November. Because we couldn't make it Mick joined the event and reports in the ACTION FIGURE DISTRICT.

And we will surely be in on it in autumn again and we are already looking forward :-)

10.04.2017 • THOR: RAGNAROK

Here we finally go: the very first Teaser-Trailer of »Thor: Ragnarok« has just been published! Not only that Thors Mjolnir breaks up but also Asgard gets destroyed and the God of Thunder gets enchained... but take a look on your own!

07.04.2017 • LAST CALL: THANOS

When we put up the breathtaking THANOS ON THRONE Maquette by Sideshow last week on our website, it was clear to us that this would be an outstanding collectible. Nevertheless the run on a statue of such a price point is more likely slow. Not the case with Thanos, because SIDESHOW seems to deliver an extremely convincing piece of art from probably the most iconic villain from the Marvel Universe, which makes it hard indeed to pass for every hardcore fan. Even that there's no statement yet from Sideshow regarding the edition size of this statue, we are pretty sure to get challenged with an allocation of our order. Therefore we highly recommend everybody, who is planning to get this dude for his collection, to place a fix pre-order very soon. And definately check out the "Making of" video from Sideshow, because this is really worth seeing:
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DsQgjBxK2FI

06.04.2017 • APRIL AT THE MOVIES

In April we can finally watch the eagerly-awaited movie highlight of the year! On the 27th »Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2« will finally be released in the German theaters. So the adventures will continue and we can hardly wait for it anymore!

But before that there comes up the one or other film where it could be worth taking a seat in front of the big screen. Admittedly there are no genre movies amongst them but nonetheless... :-)

With »The Shack« there will be released a drama today, starring Sam Worthington in the leading role. Here the father Mack Miller comes back to the place where his daughter has been seen the last time before she died. And this weekend will change his life totally... really a deep story.

On April the 13th is get a bit happier in »Going in Style«. Three old friends, acted by Alan Arkin, Michael Caine and Morgan Freeman, decide to break the law the first time in their lives after the bank has frozen their pension funds. Now they want to rob this bank! That promises to be a good comedy!

Also on the 13th Matthew McConaughey returns to the screen with »Gold«. In the unexplored jungle of Indonesia the prospector Kenny and the geologist Michael are on their search for gold. And what they find there throws the stock exchanges into turmoil and makes them rich, but...

And if that is not enough for this Thursday, you can also watch »The Fate of the Furious« - but you probably don't have to ;-)

In the following week - on April 20th - Michael Keaton takes the part of Ray Kroc, a salesman who turned two brothers' innovative fast food eatery, McDonald's, into one of the biggest restaurant businesses in the world with a combination of ambition, persistence, and ruthlessness - »The Founder« could be a good one!

And then... here we finally are: it's April the 27th and we ALL will run to the cinemas :-)

04.04.2017 • IT'S GOING TO BE CREEPY IN CALIFORNIA!

At the upcoming weekend the MONSTERPALOOZA takes place in Pasadena - so to say the counterpart to our Weekend of Hell in Oberhausen. And it will be worth taking a look at this event, for the reason alone that Sideshow will be there!

And that's because the team from Thousand Oaks teasered to not just bring the usual suspects such as Freddy, Jason and Leatherface but also the brand new clown Malavestros. We're excited to take a first look at him! Furthermore they promised a few surprises... so we will keep an eye on the West Coast during the weekend.

03.04.2017 • PRODUCT OF THE MONTH APRIL 2017

At the Academy Awards in 1993 »Batman Returns" has among others been nominated in the category "best make-up".  The evil implementation of Mr. Cobblepot by Danny DeVito surely had a large share here.

Now NECA succeeded to transform the penguin into a great figure in the scale 1:4! The almost 40 cm big DeVito convinced us a hundred percent - whether the sculpting, outfit or the accessories. So it was an easy decision to make him our product of the month! There has already been a 1/4 Scale penguin made by NECA that has been awesome. But with the mayoral outfit Cobblepot is even more wicked ;-)

A couple of weeks ago we received the first pieces so that we could take a look at it - more will follow within the next one or two weeks.

31.03.2017 • LET'S CELEBRATE IN TWO WEEKS!

In two weeks from now, the STAR WARS CELEBRATION will take place in sunny Orlando, Florida! Yesterday, the program schedule was revealed on starwars.com. Besides the »40th Anniversary« panel on Thursday - which will surely again be greatly hosted by Warwick Davis, accompanied by Kathleen Kennedy - the main highlight of the weekend will surely be the »The Last Jedi« panel on Friday. Let's just fully expect that Kathleen Kennedy and Rian Johnson will present us the EPISODE VIII trailer during this panel :-)

Teams will be streaming live all weekend long, both on the own website and on the official YouTube channel. So everybody who hasn't the chance to travel to Florida can join the fun from home.

As always at Celebration, there will be a bunch of exclusive collectibles and merch items. A highlight and must-have for every fan surely will be the very noble, official Celebration poster which combines all three generations of the Star Wars universe.

This surely will be HAPPY EASTERN ;-)

30.03.2017 • PENNYWISE IS BACK!

The brand new and very first trailer of »It« already scares six month before the theatrical release! We all know Stephen King's horror story of the sadistic killer clown Pennywise that lures children into death pretty well - but the upcoming remake could pack a punch!

In 2018 the story will be continued. The first movie is set in 1989, the second one will take place almost 30 years later, when the clown comes back.. we're excited!

29.03.2017 • DEADPOOL MUSICAL!

At the moment we get served with so many new trailers - Justice League, Spider-Man... Deadpool.

Deadpool? Okay, it's not an official clip that popped up on YouTube some days ago. Nevertheless it is a firecracker and worth a click! Wade takes »The Beauty and the Beast« for a ride and we can see him as a musical performer. And he destroys a bar, of course! Thereby he comments on his actions with a touching and catchy song. Click it!

27.03.2017 • JUSTICE LEAGUE

It was promised and here we go: the first trailer of »Justice League« has been released at the weekend. The team event of the DC Extended Universe unites Batman (Ben Affleck), Wonder Woman (Gal Gadot), Aquaman (Jason Momoa), The Flash (Ezra Miller) and Cyborg (Ray Fisher) to the Justice League. Superman (Henry Cavill) is missing  so far.

Justice League will be theatrical released on November 16th 2017 and one of the biggest promises of the movie is that it should not be as serious and gloomy as Batman v Superman.

What do you think about the first trailer?

23.03.2017 • FARGO - THE THIRD!

There have already been a few teasers for the third episode of »Fargo« and now the first official trailer has just been released. So we can get a little foretaste of the story around the Stussy brothers Emmit and Ray. Emmit, the "Parking Lot King of Minnesota« is successful, attractive and confident. His younger brother is the complete opposite. Since he left High-School he has taken a turn for the worse. Today he works as a frustrated probationer. Both brothers are acted by Ewan McGregor.

And who has watched the first two season knows that it gonna be wicked :-)

21.03.2017 • ALL GOOD THINGS ARE WORTH WAITING FOR...

We almost did not believe anymore that it will happen until THREEZERO teasered a picture and re-installed hope some time ago. There is talk of MICHONNE and now it really happens. On March 31st they will list her officially for pre-order!

On the Facebook page of Threezero you find the first pictures, take a look!

20.03.2017 • NEWS FROM THE GALAXY!

About a month before the theatrical release of »Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2« there came up some news about the crew around Star-Lord! James Gunn announced with Michael Rosenbaum (Lex Luthor in Smallville) a new cast member. His role will be kept under wraps but it shall be linked to that of Sylvester Stallone. A few characters that are very important for the Marvel universe and that we don't know yet will debut in Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2, as Gunn signalized.

Furthermore the director disclosed that we can safely assume that there will be a third part of the Guardians - so there mission won't come to an end soon. But before that we will see the merging with the Avengers in Infinity War...

17.03.2017 • AMAZON ORIGINAL GOES GERMAN!

Today AMAZON ORIGINAL releases their first German TV series productions »You Are Wanted«. It's about Lukas Franke (Matthias Schweighöfer) whose life gets disordered as his personal data are hacked and somebody tries zu write his existence new... sounds pretty exciting and the trailer looks pretty good as well.

What do you think? Will you watch that series?

16.03.2017 • BYE BYE, CHRIS EVANS?

An article in the "Esquire" magazine suggests that Chris Evans will not take the role of Captain America after »Avengers: Infinity War« anymore. After that movie, the actors has complied his contract for six movies. Evans often said that he rather focuses on a career as a director than to go ahead as an actor.

So if this will happen, we ask ourselves: what happens with the Captain in Infinity War by fighting Thanos? And will maybe somebody take over his shield - the Winter Soldier? Falcon? What do you think?

13.03.2017 • SHE'S A KILLER QUEEN

You really didn't hear anything yeat about ATOMIC BLONDE, the new flick with Charlize Theron?! No wonder, because so far this movie war relatively unknown. But now you can see something about it, namely the first trailer - and this kicks ass:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nI7HVnZlleo

Fight, Kiss, Kill - but at the max! Director David Leitch can show us his skills with this action movie and get us a nice appetizer on his highly anticipated work on DEADPOOL 2.

Along the trailer on »Atomic Blonde« there were a couple of other new interesting trailers released last weekend, such as the new one on »Wonder Woman« and the on on the 7th season of »Game of Thrones« :-)
 

10.03.2017 • A CLASSROOM FOR PROFESSOR SNAPE

Collecting action figures is for many of us a big hobby and passion. And we as a dealer have the big pleasure to also work with those great collectibles and we can unpack great novelties all the time -wonderful!

But there are also still those moment when we as a established merchant have a breathtaking moment and get goosbumps. Every passionate collector surely felt pretty much the same at the sight of the 1/6 scale classroom for magic potion of the legendary Professor Severus Snape from »Harry Potter«. Our customer Mabel (in respective forums better known as »Raven«) has shown her love for the figures with this fantastic piece of art. So she has been rightly awarded with the title picture of the month from the ACTION FIGURE DISTRICT. We highly recommend you this article, because Mabel inspires and shows that there's so much more to do with action figures than just putting them into a vitrine ;-)

Congratulations for this outstanding diorama, Mabel!

09.03.2017 • THE GRAVE WALKER RETURNS

In February, many gamers and Lord of the Rings fans celebrated the official announcement of the sequel to »Shadow of Mordor« by Monolith Productions.

Since yesterday, the first gameplay-trailer on »Middle-Earth: Shadow of War« is online! Wider worlds, a new ring of power, a re-modeled Nemesis system and more, lots of more orcs are waiting for us in the second part of this famous RPG. »Talion« and »Celebrimbor« have to recruit a horde of orcs to defend themselves against Sauron's forces.

But you better check out the clip immediately - it is definately woth it:

Our Tobi, the major orc along all S.P.A.C.E guys, can hardly wait for the release of the game in mid August :-)

07.03.2017 • MARCH AT THE MOVIES

March is literally going to be fantastic, because what we can expect this month on movies from the fantasy, sci-fi and comic genre, definately rings the "movie flat rate ticket" alarm...

Kick-off already was last week, March 2nd, with »Logan« and probably the last appearance from Hugh Jackman in his mutant role. This film really turned out great and it is an outstanding finale of Wolverine. A must-see!

Also on the 02.03. we had the release of the new film by master director Martin Scorsese - »Silence«. We get to see a historical drama, which takes place in the 17th century in Japan, starring Adam Driver, Andrew Garfield and Liam Neeson.

This week, King Kong will shout you down and out of the movie theatres, when he freaks out in »Kong: Skull Island« and clearly states who's the boss on that mysterious island. The cast is not half bad (Tom Hiddleston, Samuel L. Jackson, Brie Larson, John Goodman...), as well as the final trailer, where you can see primeval brutes and monsters everywhere.

Also starting this Thursday we have the - according to AMPAS - best motion picture of the year 2016: »Moonlight«. The drama from director Barry Jenkins is surely worth seeing!

If you prefer coke, Las Vegas, corrupt cops and a lot of action, then you should fix a date with Jamie Foxx for »Sleepless«. The title is so right, because there's not much time for sleep anyway if we look at the flood of blockbusters in this month...

Because next up, on March 16th, we get to see the next Disney real-life movie. This time, »The Beauty and the Beast« will enchant us magically. Emma Watson surely is a brilliant cast for Belle and we are already looking forward on her 1/6 figure by Hot Toys :-)

One week later, all female movie lovers will surely keep on staying in line at the box office, because you will get to see two great actors in »Life«, namely Jake Gyllenhaal and Ryan Reynolds, when they are about to discover something revolutionary, but also scary on a space excursion - extraterrestrial life!

Speaking about "extraterrestrial" - also on March 23rd the »Power Rangers« will hit the big screen in the real-life conversion of the cult TV show from the 90's. We'll see if this will work out...

Besides a couple of more movies which will have their release on March 30th, »Ghost in the Shell« surely will mark the grand finale for most of us in this month. Let's reminisce the first trailer back in November, which totally blew us away and gave us a visual overdose. Scarlett Johansson surely is the perfect pick for the key role in this anime real-life flick, so that we can look forward to a cyberpunk movie of first grade.

So, isn't this a fully packed program guide?! Have fun and enjoy yourselves at the movies :-)

06.03.2017 • NO GOOD DEED

It was so obvious that Wade could not leave the theatrical release of his x-mate Logan standing without a comment. He of course grabbed the opportunity for a very first teaser - or let’s better call it appetizer-clip - on DEADPOOL 2 :-)

The short-video is being shown in advance to »Logan« at cinemas and can also be found online since last Saturday - even in a longer version, which takes almost 4 minutes. It is full of easter eggs, by the way, and of course ironic and sarcastic to the max. Totally Deadpool style - awesome!

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Z5ezsReZcxU

Oh, and in case you didn't watch LOGAN yet, you should immediately march to a movie theatre in your neighbourhood, because this film is just outstanding and means fun from the very first untill the last minute!

02.03.2017 • THE OLD MAN LOGAN

Starting today, mutants will be rampaging again on the big screens, because Wolverine will be returning - eventually for the last time - to the cinemas worldwide. The trailers already looked pretty good in advance... the mood of the film and especially the appearance of Hugh Jackman seems very rough, broken and hard - simply very different than all the other flicks from the X-Men franchise. On top of that, the movie received an R-Rating, which will probably mean a lot of claws-action, topped with some blood. This is surely worth a night at the movies!

01.03.2017 • PRODUCT OF THE MONTH MARCH 2017

It's been a long time that we voted for a Premium Format Figure from SIDESHOW as a product of the month, but for March 2017, this decission was easy. To be honest, we already had this in mind while visiting Nuernberg Toy Fair about a month ago, since we had the chance to see CAPTAIN MARVEL in her full magnificence on site!

Sideshow definately raised the bar again with this statue - both in sculpting and painting. Let's give out big compliments to all artists who patricipated in the design and production of this figure - you guys are surely making a lot of collectors very happy with this, doubtless yet best, statue-conversion of Carol Danvers - and this probably does not only refer to hardcore Marvel fans!

We luckily still do have some few pieces left from our first shipment. But since Captain Marvel is limited to 2,500 pieces only, you can be sure that a statue of this quality won't be on the market for too long.

Isn't this breath-taking collectible a real appetizer on the upcoming »Captain Marvel« movie? Unfortunately the blockbuster starring Brie Larson will let us wait untill 2019... But since the female superhero is hanging out very often with the Guardians, it might be worth staying in your seat untill the very last moment when watching »Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2« in April at cinemas ;-)

27.02.2017 • AND THE OSCAR GOES TO...

...MOONLIGHT! Or rather LA LA LAND?! Who knows ;-)
This somehow seemed like well staged show-gag for a grand finale of the 89th Academy Awards last night in Los Angeles - but it actually was a never-happened-before Irish bull! Apparently poor presenters Warren Beatty and Faye Dunaway received a wrong winner card inside the final envelope for best picture, so that the crew from »La La Land« initially got on stage. After the first acceptance speaches, they had to pass on the microphone - and the Oscars - to their fellow filmmakers from »Moonlight« then. What a bitter-sweet finale!

But at least the trophies were given out very equaly this year, so that »La La Land« made the run with six Oscars after all. From the Sci-Fi, Comic and Fantasy genre there were only some very few winners to proclaim. STAR WARS unfortunately did not win with »Rogue One«, since the »Jungle Book« won the hunt in the visual effects category. But the Joker surely went crazy over the Oscar for »Suicide Squad« for best make-up and hairstyling :-)
 

23.02.2017 • THE LAST SUPPER!

Not a new teaser or trailer but a prolog in form of a short movie is what we got yesterday for »Alien: Covenant«. The scene takes almost five minutes and introduces the 'Convenant' crew - right before they fall to their cryosleep. Involved are Katherine Waterston as protagonist Daniels, James Franco as Branson, the Captain and husband of Daniels, Danny McBride as Pilot Tennessee und of course Michael Fassbender... click it :-)

22.02.2017 • WONDER WOMAN CONVINCES!

We have to wait until the 15th of June - a chosen few already had the chance to watch »Wonder Woman« at the movies. Therewith Warner Bros. wants to gain first audience reactions.

And those are absolutely positive so far and way better than they have been for »Batman v Superman« and »Suicide Squad«. Especially Chris Pine as Steve Trevor is said to be absolutely convincing...

So we really can be excited!

21.02.2017 • THE BEST OF 2016

Every year the colleague Michael Crawford chooses the best collectible of the preceding year - and the results for 2016 are now fixed. It have been chosen the winners out of a pool in many different categories. Our Mick has also been a part of the jury and he presents the results at the ACTION FIGURE DISTRICT. Of course we also added our two cents. And you should do so as well - take a look :-)

16.02.2017 • THE FAN THEORIES

Alleged there have been leaked some fotos and information of »Star Wars: The Last Jedi«. So it's about time to speculate and to build fan theories about what we can expect from Episode 8. Mace Windu as Finn's father, Snoke as the survived Windu, Obi-Wan as Rey's grandfather, Rey as reincarnation of Anakin, the Rogue One Crew as the Knights of Ren and so on... questions over questions and theories over theories.

That Marco from NERDKULTUR is mostly right with his theories shows us the past. So who else could be more predestinated to take a closer look at fan theories?

Take a look at his new clip :-)

15.02.2017 • WHO'S GONNA BE BATMAN?

After Ben Affleck already plunked down the direction of the Batman solo movie, he is now allegedly totally out of the business and he will also not take the Dark Knight's role. Reportedly he is already in negotiations about his phase-out.

So there is now a vacancy in Gotham - and we now wonder: who will be the next Batman?

13.02.2017 • AND ACTION!

About two weeks ago, it has been announced that the shooting of »Avengers: Infinity War« has just begun. Now the Marvel Studios have released a first featurette that gives us some offstage insights of the work that is going on here. But principally that clip makes us want to see the movie right away... but take a look for yourself!

09.02.2017 • FEBRUARY AT THE MOVIES

The shortest month of the year is fully packed with theatrical releases - some of them are probably worth a walk to the movies.

Already a week ago »Live by Night« with Ben Affleck in the leading role has been released. He embodies the son of a exalted police officer in Boston during the 1920s. But he has not that much in spare for the law but for the payroll of the biggest gangsters of the city...

On February 16th Ewan McGregor returns to the screen as Mark Renton in »T2 Trainspotting«. After 20 years Renton comes back to the only place that he could ever call "home". And everybody already waits for him, to say hello and ready to dance.

And by talking about returnee and the 16th we come to Keanu Reeves. In »John Wick - Chapter Two« the legendary hitman John Wick gets called back from retirement. Because of a blood oath he is bounded to help an old colleague...

Some kind of lunatic it could get on February 23rd with »A Cure for Wellness«. An ambitious young employee has to pick up his CEO from a idyllic but mysterious "wellness center" in the Swiss alps. Pretty soon he learns that those therapies are not what they seem to be. Everybody is sick...

On the same day for Mark Wahlberg as an Police Sergeant starts a run against the time and one of the most fraught dragnet operations in the history of the United States. As the German title »Boston« assumes, it's all about the assassination at the Boston marathon on April 15th 2013. The original title is »Patriots Day« - of course!

And last but not least, last week has also been released »Rings« - which probably fits in the category "continuations that the world doesn't need" - but tastes are different ;-)
 

08.02.2017 • THE FINAL DEFENDER ARRIVES!

For fifteen years they thought he is dead. Now he is back in New York City and that causes a lot of disturbance. There is talk of Danny Rand aka Iron Fist!

Starting the 17th of March we can watch the series on Netflix and to inflame the anticipation the official trailer has just been released - and it's hot, as we think!

06.02.2017 • SUPER BOWL LI

To put the sporting first: Congratulations Patriots! But of course the Super Bowl hasn't just been interesting for fans of the game. Many clips, teasers and trailers came up that we summarized for you. Click them, it's gonna be worth seeing:

Spot zu »The Fate of the Furious«
Spot zu »Logan«
Spot zu »Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2«
Spot zu »Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell no Tales«
Spot zu »Transformers: The Last Knight«
Spot zu »Ghost in the Shell«
Spot zu »Baywatch«
Spot zu »Life«
Spot zu »Stranger Things«
Spot zu »The Walking Dead«

And there have been shown even more commercials that are also worth a click. IGN has made up a long list where you can find all of them.
 

01.02.2017 • PRODUCT OF THE MONTH FEBRUARY 2017

For us here it was one of the movie highlights of 2016! Almost to the day one year ago »Deadpool« has been theatrical released here in Germany. Now in February 2017 the time has come and we can hold the 1/6 Deadpool by Hot Toys in our hands.

That he will be our product of the month was actually already safe at the time we listed him at the shop. So the election has been unanimous this month :-)

Along these lines: welcome to the headquarter, Mr. Wilson!

31.01.2017 • LET'S GO TO NUREMBERG!

As every year in winter we will visit Franconia to check out the Nuremberg Toy Fair. Tomorrow and on Thursday parts of our team will be in attendance zu keep watch for novelties. Usually there's always something to discover and we will - of course - provide you our picture yield on Facebook and keep you up to date :-)

30.01.2017 • A SUNNY SUNDAY WITH LURTZ!

Get the snow gear, grab the camera and meet Lurtz, the mighty Uruk, for a shooting in the wild...

That's exactly what we did yesterday - and some nice shots were taken from and with the Uruk-Chieftain. You can check them out in our Facebook album!

26.01.2017 • ALSO FOX WANTS THE X-MEN!

Already two days ago the TV station FOX announced that they ordered a pilot epsidoe of a new X-Men series. And now it is also known who will be the director: Bryan Singer!

So a real mutant expert joins the game and will give that yet untiteled series it’s look – and it will be placed inside the Cinemativ Universe. There isn’t set a release date yet – of course – but that could probably be worth waiting for…

25.01.2017 • FLOW AT MCU!

There’s something giong on in the Marvel Cinematic Universe these days! On the one hand the shootings for »Black Panther« have just begun. Chadwick Boseman, Lupita Nyong’o and Martin Freeman joined the party so far. Also the logo of the movie has been shown. The theatrical release is sheduled for February 2018.

And on the other hand the shootings of »Avengers: Infinity War« started as well. So for Dave Bautista the work continues – without knowing the script so far, it’s all top secret. Here we will find out more in April 2018.

But for now: shoot, so that we can watch the first teasers and trailers soon :-)

23.01.2017 • STAR WARS: THE LAST JEDI
