When you're lucky enough to have Hot Toys make a figure bearing your likeness, you'll apparently take any opportunity to pose with it. We previously saw Clark Gregg meeting his Agent Coulson figure. Now, Hot Toys brings us pics of Loki meeting Loki.
Tom Hiddleston took some time while on the set of "Thor: The Dark World" to pose with his Loki figure, showing off just how accurately Hot Toys recreated the god of mischief's armor from "Marvel's the Avengers." But the photos, which you can check out below the jump, have us wondering if Loki's keeping the same look for the Thor sequel. He's wearing his old "Avengers" costume, which implies that he won't be getting a new look like his brother. Or maybe they just had the old suit around on set and utilized it for this photo op?
Hopefully Marvel Studios will stop releasing stills of creeptacular elves and give us a better look at Loki.

We first wrote about Agent Coulson's Hot Toys figure way back in November. The figure boasts the type of intricate and impressive detail we've come to expect from the deluxe toy company, and seen in their renditions of the Hulk, Wolverine, Catwoman, Black Widow and others.
Now fans will soon be able to get their hands on the lifelike Coulson figure... just like actor Clark Gregg did a few days ago. The man who brought Coulson to life, and death, and life again came face to face with his 1/6th scale twin! And judging by the look on his face in these photos, he was pretty taken with the little guy.

"Man of Steel's" release date is quickly approaching and, going by the most recent, exhilarating trailer, it seems like it's one action packed affair. For fans of all ages wishing to recreate the punchier moments of this summer's Superman film, Mattel has a line of action figures in stores for just such a purpose. The Movie Masters line of figures includes Superman, Jor-El and General Zod, with more figures on the way (like fellow Kryptonian Faora). We reported on these figures a little while ago, and now, thanks to MTV Geek, you can see the figure in action with an in-depth review. Check out the review over at MTV Geek, and be sure to catch up on all the latest "Man of Steel" news!

As if you weren't already beyond excited for "Man of Steel," two new, huge, epic figures from Square Enix's Play Arts Kai have been unveiled and they are pretty amazing. Both Superman and General Zod are available as fully articulated and painstakingly sculpted 9.5 inch tall figures. You had better make sure your shelves will be able to withstand this much awesomeness.
MTV Geek has even more pictures of the dueling duo, including all of General Zod's Kryptonian accessories. The figures don't arrive until August, but that shouldn't keep you from checking them out right now.
Check out these new "Man of Steel" figures right now on MTV Geek.
"The Walking Dead" is getting a new batch of action figures based around the AMC series' recent third season. McFarlane Toys has announced that it will release its fourth batch of "The Walking Dead" tie-ins, and fans can now see a first look at what's in store.
The humans being featured this round are Andrea, the Governor and Carl, with a special two-pack being released with Merle and Daryl Dixon. The zombies that will receive action figures are the appropriately named Riot Gear Zombie and Riot Gear Gas Mask Zombie.
Check out pictures of the figures below, and here's a spoiler warning for those who haven't watched season three yet.
The final three Marvel Minimates tied in to "Iron Man 3" have been released. The Toys "R" Us exclusives will hit stores later in April, just in time for "Iron Man 3's" May 3rd release date.
While Tony Stark and an Extremis soldier Minimates have already been revealed, this latest batch of collectibles focuses on Tony's array of armor. There's one figurine wearing the Iron Man Mark 17 Artillery Level RT Suit "Heartbreaker" Armor, another wearing the Mark 33 Enhanced Energy Suit "Silver Centurion" Armor and a third wearing the Mark 41 Skeleton Suit "Bones" Armor.

So far all of the photos released from "Man Of Steel" have been pretty uneventful, mostly depicting the cast and crew behind the scenes. We've yet to get a clear shot of Michael Shannon as General Zod or Antje Traue as Faora, but these images from "Previews" are the next best thing. These "Man of Steel" statues show the two Kryptonian opponents all armored up and ready to fight.
The General Zod statue differs from his action figure; we assume the action figure duds are hiding out underneath all that bulk. The Faora statue matches up with her action figure well, just with a much higher level of detail. Also shown are statues for Superman and Jor-El, two guys that we've already seen a bit of thanks to the trailers and action figures.

An elite cabal of action figure sellers have come across the first assortment of "Man of Steel" figures and set their plan in motion: selling them on ebay! Okay, so that's not that nefarious of a plot. And the "elite cabal" business was probably hyperbole. Whatever the case, their actions have given us our first peek at the toy packaging and, yes, character bios for Superman, General Zod and Jor-El.
Each back story is pretty much what anyone with a basic knowledge of Superman would come up with. Superman's parents sent him away from the dying Krypton and he grew up in Smallville. General Zod was imprisoned in the phantom zone (surprisingly not capitalized). Jor-El is Superman's dad and, also, Russell Crowe. It all seems like harmless info, but there could be a turn of phrase that could be considered a spoiler depending on how deep your Superman knowledge runs and how cautious you are about spoilers. Your call, reader! Check out the toy packaging below.
