Welcome back to Toy Aisle, our regular roundup of the toys most likely to threaten our personal savings this week. We have even more Star Wars, a wonderfully specific Spider-Man, and honestly, the world’s most adorable Godzilla action figure. Check it out!
Hot Toys Star Wars: The Last Jedi 1/6-Scale BB-8 and BB-9E
If you’re looking for an actual droid companion to keep you company and respond to your every command, Sphero’s BB-8 and BB-9E interactive toys are a better option. But if screen accurate detailing is your top priority, then Hot Toys once again delivers with these 1/6-scale rolling droids. Featuring weathered paint jobs, a self-balancing mechanism, and light-up LEDs in their magnetically-attached heads, these 11cm-tall droids will set you back a few hundred bucks for the pair when available some time next year.

DC Collectibles Batman: The Animated Series Jokermobile
You can turn anything from the excellent Batman: The Animated Series into a toy or collectible and we’ll hand over our wallets faster than when threatened with the Joker’s latest toxic laughing gas. The series had one of the best Batmobiles we’ve ever seen, but the Jokermobile is a close second for our ideal daily commuter. This 23cm version features a light-up smile and can accommodate all of the new Batman TAS figures now available. You won’t be able to get one until May of next year, though, and you’ll have to cough up $US100 ($126) for the privilege. [Toyark]
Bandai Hobby Perfect Grade 1/72-Scale Millennium Falcon
If you weren’t able to scrape together $1299.99 before LEGO’s giant 7541-Piece Millennium Falcon completely sold out, here’s a decent consolation prize. Bandai Hobby’s new 1/72-scale Millennium Falcon model looks like a prop used to film the original Star Wars trilogy, and it will only set you back $US400 ($503). It will be available later this year, but you can grab the Falcon early if you’re heading to New York Comic-Con in early October. Just keep in mind you’ll have 700 tiny parts to assemble, and even more painting to do.
Kotobukiya 1/10-Scale New York Comic Con 2017 Exclusive Spider-Man in Winter Gear Statue
Kotobukiua’s line of statues is getting a delightful exclusive for New York Comic Con this year: Acheeky representation of a look Spider-Man wears in Amazing Spider-Man #615, answering the time old question of “Wouldn’t Spider-Man get really goddamn cold in that skintight spandex during the winter?” Reader, the answer is yes. Spidey dons his winter warmers (the hat and scarf of which are removable) while investigating a mystery in South Bronx during a snowy night in the comics, and now it’s a delightful statue of the webslinger that comes with a magnetised, snow-covered base to pose him on, too. The $US65 ($82) statue is available to preorder ahead of the con right now.
Godzilla vs Space Godzilla Figuarts Space Godzilla and Little Godzilla
The Godzilla movies have given us so many absurd and wonderful iterations on the King of All Kaiju over the years, but rarely do they match Space Godzilla from the 1994 classic for silliness. Look at those giant spiky, electrified shoulders! Amazing. Figuarts’ latest MonsterArts figure features a new mid-battle paint app for this web exclusive version. But, even better: Space Godzilla comes with a smaller, 9.5cm-tall version of the ridiculously adorable Little Godzilla from the film too! So sweet. [Toyark]
Star Trek: Discovery Insignia Badges
If you’ve convinced yourself you’re going to love the new Star Trek: Discovery series before the first episode even airs, then here’s a head start on your upcoming comic convention costume. ThinkGeek is already selling the series’ insignia badges, and for $US15 ($19) each you can accurately cosplay as a command, medical, operations or science officer. They’re held in place using a magnetic backing you hide under your shirt, and might be worth picking up for novelty’s sake, in case Discovery lasts as long as Enterprise did. [ThinkGeek]
