    'Black Panther': Exclusive sneak peek at Marvel movie's tie-in toys

    It’s been three long months since the breathtaking  Black Panther trailer debuted , showcasing Chadwick Boseman ‘s solo superhero outing, which hits theaters Feb. 16, 2018. Since then, we’ve had extremely limited looks at the anticipated  Marvel Cinematic Universe  entry, having to settle for a tantalizing action scene at San Diego Comic-Con along with a handful of  costumes and props . But today, Yahoo Movies  exclusively unveils the upcoming line of toys  — which offer a few clues to the film. Next spring, Hasbro will release a slew of Panther-themed playthings, from action figures of varying magnitude to role-play items that let fans channel their inner Wakanda warrior. The toys give us a glimpse of Michael B. Jordan ‘s villainous Erik Killmonger costume, tease the Panther’s upgraded Vibranium-powered supersuit, and also provide a sneak peek at the hero’s shape-shifting vehicle, the Panther Jet. The toys will be publicly debuted at Hascon , Hasbro’s inaugural convention covering all its lines, including  Star Wars , Marvel , Transformers , G.I. Joe, and My Little Pony , which runs Friday to Sunday in Providence, R.I. In the meantime, click through to get a taste of  Black Panther .

Although we got a brief glimpse of Iron Man (Robert Downey Jr.) zooming into action alongside the wall-crawler (Tom Holland) at the end of the trailer released in December, there hasn’t been a clear look at the latest iteration of Stark’s battle armor until now. ...

    Daisy Ridley Assures Fans That Rey Toys Will Arrive With 'Star Wars: Episode VIII'

    Daisy Ridley was the breakout star of Star Wars: The Force Awakens — no huge surprise in retrospect, given that her character Rey is the story’s primary hero — but in the pre-release merchandise plans, she somehow received short shrift. Rey was conspicuously absent in numerous toy sets, perhaps most notably in the initial tie-in version of Monopoly. The disrespect didn’t sit well with fans or with director J.J. Abrams, and though the issue was retroactively rectified, it still shadows the franchise as eyes turn to the marketing of the as-yet-untitled Star Wars: Episode VIII in 2017. ...

    A Field Guide to Major Movie Merchandising Misfires, From 'Alien' to 'Waterworld'

    With the release of the latest round of Star Wars merchandise set for this year’s so-called “ Rogue Friday” (riffing on last year’s Force Friday) on Sept. 30, Yahoo Movies is looking back at movie merchandise through the years . In today’s fourth installment, writer Ethan Alter looks back on movie-related goods gone awry. __________________________ Ever since George Lucas’s foundational blockbuster Star Wars proved that the Force is strong with tie-in movie merchandise, audiences have been able to follow their favorite big-budget spectacles directly from the multiplex to the toy store. But not all blockbusters ? nor toy lines ? are created equal. While action figures modeled after such citizens of that far, far away galaxy as Han Solo, Amidala, Kylo Ren, and Jyn Erso are always guaranteed to fly off the shelves, some toys are destined to sit there gathering dust. Maybe the movies they were based on played to empty theaters, while everyone saw The Force Awakens for the gazillionth time. Or maybe, just maybe, the toys themselves desperately needed more time in the plastic incubator from whence they emerged. With spiffy new Rogue One: A Star Wars Story toys arriving this week, we look back at some of the biggest merchandising misfires in contemporary movie history. And as you’ll see, even a mighty brand name like Star Wars can take a major toy-related tumble now and then.

    Feast your eyes on the greatest movie action-figure fails

    With the release of the latest round of Star Wars merchandise set for this year’s so-called “ Rogue Friday” (riffing on last year’s Force Friday) on Sept. 30, Yahoo Movies is looking back at movie merchandise through the years. In today’s opening installment, we go deep on the greatest action-figure mishaps from some of Hollywood’s greatest films. Enjoy! __________________________ Ever since the release of 1977’s Star Wars , kids (and adults) have channeled their love of movies into playing with — and obsessively collecting — action figures based on their favorite big-screen adventurers. And today, many of those replicas are amazingly lifelike, as with those offered by Hot Toys , whose collection of movie-property figures boast astoundingly detailed and accurate facial sculptures and costumes, many using 3-D scans of the real actors. They’re proof that, when done properly, action figures can eerily resemble the iconic heroes and heroines upon which they’re based. But when done incorrectly? Well, that’s another story entirely. While companies like Hasbro, Mattel, McFarlane Toys, and Hot Toys have now set an incredibly high standard for such products, the industry’s history is littered with laughable disasters that fail so miserably at recreating actors and actress’ visages, they seem to have been made without any actual knowledge of their subjects. As our rundown makes clear, when movie action figures fail, they fail badly .
