  1. If you've been on social media (especially Facebook groups) for a while, you probably have witnessed this a few times: A collector posts a picture of a new action figure, or of his collection, and the entire comment section has questions about something else. "What shelves are you using?", "Which lights are those?", "Is that wallpaper from Home Depot?",... We interviewed Nicolas, who recently posted a picture of his collection. "I would be lying if I said that I wasn't fishing for compliments." said the collector. "I am proud of my action figure collection, so I posted a nice picture in a few Facebook groups. Then, I started feeling the excitement as I saw that there were notifications on the pictures... I expected the comments to be about the cool toys, or the rare action figures that I have on display... I didn't expect all the comments to be about what type of shelves, what type of glass cabinets or what type of lights I use. People commenting to each other about furniture and lighting fixtures! It's Detolf, guys! It's ALWAYS Detolf!" "Another recurring thing is when I post a picture with one action figure in focus, I get questions about things that are in the background... 'Which figure is that in the background?', 'What's your cat's name?', 'What brand is that TV?'..." More news at 11:00...

  2. Another week, another McFarlane Toys DC Multiverse line reveal! Over the last few days, McFarlane Toys has released pictures teasing the upcoming DC Multiverse The Dark Knight Trilogy wave, releasing pictures of Batman, Two-Face, and Scarecrow. We already know that the Joker is part of that line, and that Bane is most likely the 'Collect-to-build' figure, but what if it was all a trick, and the 'Collect-to-build' figure was actually right in front of our eyes, the whole time? ToyFarce investigated... We worked around the clock to look for clues (what wouldn't ToyFarce do for you?), and we are 60% sure that we have found out who the "Collect-to-build" figure will be... A Rachel Dawes figure! (More like "Collect-to-reassemble", actually!). On the first picture, Batman can be seen over the ruins of the warehouse where Rachel was in the Dark Knight movie. The Two-Face reveal pic is a bit on the nose, since Harvey Dent became Two-Face at that exact moment too. On the Scarecrow reveal picture, we can see barrels... the SAME barrels that exploded to "disassemble" Rachel! If those are not clues, we do not know what is. We hired an expert to see if the pictures had been edited, and it turns out they were, and here are what was on the original pictures: The great part about this "Collect-to-build" figure is that you do not even need to assemble it! You can just display the different limbs on the floor, around the figures, for that realistic movie touch. No information yet if the figure will come with Maggie Gyllenhaal or Katie Holmes headsculpt. More news at 11:00... SAVE RACHEL! *ToyFarce News is parody news for laughs and not meant to be taken seriously!
  3. It's Wednesday and you know what that means... ToyFarce review! This week, we're having a look at the Batman Forever one sixth scale figures from Hot Toys. These are figures that we weren't sure would ever actually come out, but Hot Toys actually put them up for pre-order back in February 2021, so there was hope! And now, they are here! Yay... not? Both packaging are really nice and quite colorful, just like the movie was. It has a sleeve with a picture of the figure on the front and all the legalities in the back. Under the sleeve, you can see the figure through a window (although both figures are covered with protective plastic so you can't see them very well...). First off, Batman, as portrayed by Val Kilmer in 1995, in his Sonar Suit which he wears at the end of the movie, after the Riddler (played by Jim Carrey) destroyed the Batcave. Batman (Sonar Suit) comes with a ton of accessories. He has 7 extra hands, 2 versions of his batarang (open and closed), a grapnel launcher with a wire that can be attached to it, the batarang blade weapon that can attach to his hand, the underwater thruster from the movie, and a stand. His eyes can individually move (they are on a plate inside the cowl), and an extra set of 'sonar' eyes is also included, as well as the tool to change/move the eyes. As it happened before with Hot Toys Batman figures, the figure is an articulated body covered by a quite thick rubber suit, which completely hinders articulations. You can bend the arms and legs a little, but when you do, the suit bunches up and it does not look great. Leaving that figure in any other position than the infamous "Museum pose" will not look great and probably damage the suit after some time... Yay... Unfortunately, the peg hole under the head arrived broken on mine, so I cannot change the eyes. I am currently waiting for a replacement part. As gorgeous as it looks, this figure has been a bit of a let down. Robin also looks great, but is unfortunately not better. The suit is the same way as the Batman figure, thick rubber, so he can't move much. Those are more like statues with a little bit of articulation, basically. Robin also comes with only 4 extra hands and no other accessories. No PERS (moving eyes) feature. To add insult to injury, he costs the same as the Batman figure. I also believe that the red is the wrong shade of red. It seemed a lot darker in the movie... And what's up with that bulge?! Once again, they look beautiful, and I'll admit that I've been catching myself staring at them in the Detolf, and thinking 'Man, those look awesome', but you can't really pose them or do anything with them. Those are expensive figures that only a completist who has all the other Hot Toys Batman figures would get... so I did. More news at 11:00... Babyyyy! I compare you to a kiss from a rose on the grey...
  4. Adrenaline... In My Soul... More Figures of Cody Rhodes! This weekend, 'The American Nightmare' Cody Rhodes overcame 29 other WWE superstars and became the winner of the 2023 Royal Rumble (well, he entered the rumble at number 30, so a lot of the work was already done, but he did overcome a few, still!). After the event was over, the WWE held a press conference where Cody spoke with a few journalists, and he did mention that there will be merchandise made, including action figures, with his infamous torn pec from a few months ago! During the conference, Cody admitted that he has not re-watched the June 2022 "Hell in a Cell" match with Seth Rollins, during which he had a gnarly injury on his right pectoral muscle, and probably never will. However, he mentioned that merchandise, including action figures with said injury, should see the light of day soon. "If you thought my AEW figures were bad, just wait until you see the new ones", he added (for real, this is an actual quote...). ToyFarce reached out to a contact at Mattel to learn more about it, and it turns out there are more than one 'torn pec' figures in the pipeline. There will be both a Basic and an Elite figure of Cody Rhodes with huge, purple torn pec, along with possibly an Ultimate Edition one in the works. The Basic will have a chase version, with ALL TORN new deco. More news at 11:00... and congratulations to Cody who's heading to Wrestlemania! *ToyFarce News is parody news for laughs and not meant to be taken seriously!
  5. Yesterday, Tamashii Nations (Bandai, S.H. Figuarts) announced that the unmasked Andrew Garfield head would NOT be included with the upcoming S.H. Figuarts Spider-man: No Way Home Amazing Spider-man figure. ToyFarce did some digging to find out the actual reason why! According to an insider source, there was a mix up during the making of the prototype of the figure, as one of the sculptor had been binge watching "It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia" while working on the sculpt, and ended up including a lot of Charlie Day into it, which could be seen when the first pictures of the unmasked head of the figure were released. Tamashii Nations still did try to contact Charlie Day to ask him if he would agree with his likeness being released with the figure, but the actor declined the offer. "Well, I never played Spider-man..." explained Charlie Day. "There's not really any point for them to make a figure of the Amazing Spider-man with my face. They were nice, and even offered to add my facial hair so that it looks even more like me, but I just said no. I'd prefer to actually play the character, and THEN, get an action figure like that. No hard feelings, though!" No news yet on if Tamashii Nations is planning to remove the thong on the Amazing Spider-man figure as well. More news at 11:00... "You're Amazing! - I kinda needed to hear that, thank you." *ToyFarce News is parody news for laughs and not meant to be taken seriously!
  6. It's Wednesday and you know what that means: ToyFarce review! This week, we're having a look at the S.H.Figuarts Squid Game figures from Bandai. That's right! It is not Christmas related anymore! Bandai made action figure for the Netflix Korean hit series Squid Game, which saw a bunch of strangers play 'games' in order to win a huge sum of money. Oh, and they could also die a horrible death while trying... The show came out in September 2021, and the action figures were released during the last couple of months (the 2 soldiers at the end of November, and the Front Man at the end of December). First, the Masked Soldier. See it as the basic soldier, the one that could be used for army building. He has a triangle on his mask. He comes with 3 extra sets of hands, a revolver, a machine gun and a chest camera. You can also find a foldable paper version of the coffins from the show in the box, with the little bow on it (so cute!). The figure is highly articulated, even if it's not necessarily needed (they are soldiers, not Spider-man). The chest camera piece is easy to put on, and the hands are relatively easy to change, although the peg seems to be really tiny and might break if used a lot. The only problem I had with it is the machine gun's shoulder rig (not sure if it's the correct name), which is made of hard plastic and kinda gets in the way, or detaches itself when you move the machine gun. The soldier can't really be posed nicely with it. The Masked Worker/Manager is also a good army builder, because he comes with 2 different masks (square and circle). The figure has an extra mask, 3 extra sets of hands, a backpack and a knife. The mask is easy to change, and can also be changed on the Masked Soldier figure (good to know if you plan to army build them!). The backpack seems to be able to open, as seen on promo pics, but I did not figure out how to (Go, me!). A good figure as well, basically the same figure as the Masked Soldier with different accessories. The Front Man, the mysterious boss of the Masked Soldiers is a surprisingly slim figure, at least compared to the other 2. The Front Man comes with 3 extra pairs of hands, a cellphone, a gun and the green landline phone that he had in the show. I thought the jacket would hinder the articulation of the legs, but it turns out it's pretty soft and the figure can even bend forward easily. He looks quite menacing, but it's a figure that you will need to have the other pink masked figures next to it for people to realize who it is. 20 years from now, if you see that figure loose on a shelf in a collectible store, I can imagine people wondering who it is. More news at 11:00... Red Light, Green Light...
  7. In case you missed it, or haven't seen people complaining all over social media for the last few days (lucky!), Hasbro has announced a new Marvel Legends Spider-man figure, with the new Gamerverse Advance Suit, for a whopping $34,99 (Ouch). This led to several toy reviewers from Youtube to reconsider their choices, and one of them came up with a perfect solution: Why buy new when you can tote-dive for old stuff and review them as if they were new? "The toy prices are getting so out of hand that I will not be able to continue reviewing brand new figures right when they come out", told Robert G., a collector from North Carolina. "But I also still want to keep posting content for my followers, so I came up with the idea of reviewing older figures from my personal collection, as if they were brand new. Most of them are in great condition so it's actually not that far from brand new, and I also have a lot of them still in mint condition, so I can now continue to do unboxing videos, even if I unbox figures that are 5-10 years old, instead of the newer stuff." "I can also "cheat" a bit, and keep up with current themes: Whenever a new Spider-man figure will come out, I will review an old Spider-man action figure from my collection, which should still boost the views a bit, because people might think it's the latest one. Kinda like those rip-off movies that come out at the same time as big blockbuster movies, that have nearly exactly the same name, but were way cheaper to make!" More news at 11:00... Improvise. Adapt. Review old stuff.
  8. The Indiana Jones Adventure Series from Hasbro is one of the most anticipated lines of this year, and this week, ToyFarce got an exclusive reveal for you: One of the most important characters from 'Raiders of the Lost Ark', which is introduced right at the beginning of the movie along with the main character, is finally going to get a 6" scale figure - we're talking about the 'Raiders of the Lost Ark' The Boulder! Patrick, the Marketing Director for Star Wars and Indiana Jones at Hasbro contacted ToyFarce about the exclusive reveal: "Yo dude! I totally forgot to reveal the boulder LOL! It was right there, hidden behind our table, but I was enjoying myself so much with the whip that I completely forgot ROFL! Could you do a quick reveal for it, that's would be freaking great, man! Cheerio!" (actual message sent by Patrick). The 6" scale 'Raiders of the Lost Ark' The Boulder will not include any accessories, and will be a K-Mart Exclusive. It should be released around the same time as the first wave of figures. No details on the price yet, but it should be around $49,99. We're hearing that there are talks to do the 'Raiders of the Lost Ark' The Boulder also in the roleplay items line. What other iconic Indiana Jones item would you like to see in the Adventure Series? Let us know in the comments! More news at 11:00... I hate boulders, Jock! I hate 'em! *ToyFarce News is parody news for laughs and not meant to be taken seriously!
  9. It's Wednesday, and you know what that means... ToyFarce review! This week, we're having a look at a few items from the Fresh Monkey Fiction Naughty or Nice line, that came out just in time for the holiday season (unless you have to deal with the international post system, and then you get them a couple of weeks later...)! When they were announced, a little over a year ago, I immediately pre-ordered the Classic Santa, the Accessory pack and one of the Elves. I kept going back to look at the pictures of the other versions of Santa, and finally gave in and added the Zombie Santa to my list later on. Those figures are exclusive to BigBadToyStore. The packaging for the Santa figures is reminescent of the pre-plastic-free Marvel Legends packaging, same shape, the window in the front, etc. It wouldn't be a surprise if they came from the same factory! It's a nice, familiar packaging, like meeting an old friend that you havent seen in a while. The packaging for the Elves is also collector friendly, with a plastic shell and a card that you can slide in and out in the back to grab the figure, and the Accessory pack has a nice and flat packaging, with a window in the front. First, the OG, the Classic Santa. Well, what a pleasant surprise: it's a very nice figure! The sculpt and paint apps are great, and the figure has a decent amount of articulations (no double elbows/double knees/thigh swivels but it's Santa, not Spider-man). The Classic Santa comes with 2 head sculpts (normal and winking), 3 extra hands, a present (that can be opened), his list (I hear he checked it twice!), a plate with 2 cookies and a glass of milk (you can remove the milk from the glass to turn it into... just a glass!) and a stand. The hat can be removed and put on the other head sculpt. It seems this 'first edition' has a beard that is a bit more yellow, while the '2023 edition' will have a white beard, but I don't mind that, it adds a bit of contrast. Overall, a fun figure to add in all your Christmas related toy photography. The elves are smaller figures, at about 4" tall. They're basically 5 points of articulation figures (head, arms and legs). They all come with 3 different heads, so I picked the one with the costume that looked the more like a Chrismtas elf to me (green with red and white stripes). Betty the Elf comes with 2 extra head sculpts, a different hat, so you can turn her into any of the other elves, a candy cane, and a present. The different styles of Santa are where the fun is at with this line. I grabbed the Zombie Santa, and he did not disappoint. The sculpt and paint look great. He comes with another head sculpt, Evil Santa, and a pair of hands, so you can turn him into another version of Santa. He also comes with a lump of coal (for naughty children), an axe (also for naughty children), the same plate with cookies and glass of milk, but the plate is black, the cookies are rotten and green, and the milk has turned black (ew!), a present and a stand.. A very fun figure, that will be perfect to display during the time between Halloween and Christmas! The Accessory pack comes with some soft goods items, such as a hooded cape and a big red present bag. There are also 2 stockings, a stack of presents, a present, Santa's list, a candy cane, the plate with cookies and milk and 2 lumps of coal. Basically, the Accessory pack has most of the accessories that I got from the other figures apart from the soft goods items, the stockings and the stack of presents. Oh well... they're the funnest part of it anyway! The cape fits any of the santa figure pretty nicely, and seems durable. A great set if you want to get your other figures all 'Christmas-y' too! Fresh Monkey Fiction delivered some great figures, and if the upcoming Operation: Monster Force figures (from them and BigBadWorkshop) are anything like those Naughty or Nice figures, we will definitely hear a lot about Fresh Monkey Fiction in the future. Thumbs up! More news at 11:00... This is the last Christmas related review for a while, I swear!
  10. "2023 is shaping up to be one of the best years for toy collectors!" said self-proclaimed 'Action Figure Expert' Josh T. from Delaware, on January 8th. Josh already has 5, if not 6 candidates for his Top 10 Action figures of 2023 list, which will be published in about 11 months on his Youtube channel. "We're only a few days in January, and there's already so much good toys that were released!" said Josh. "I don't want to reveal too much, not to spoil anything for my followers for when I publish my Top 10 list of 2023 over 350 days from now, but there are several heavy hitters that will certainly end up in a lot of people's Top 10 list this year, mark my words! This is going to be a glorious year!" Could it be that the best toy of the year has already been released during the first week of 2023? Let us know in the comments! More news at 11:00... "I might have to do a monthly Top 10 this year..." *ToyFarce News is parody news for laughs and not meant to be taken seriously!
  11. This Sunday (January 15th, 2023) will be the third anniversary of the pre-orders opening for the Mezco One:12 Collective Batman - 1989 Edition! The ultra coveted figure went up for pre-order at 1:00PM EST 3 years ago, stayed up for a couple of hours and then went to 'Waitlist' (a whole new meaning to waitlist, huh?). And the rest is history... yet to be made. Did you grab one? What are your plans for the third anniversary of your pre-order? There has been several things that were highly anticipated by fans and took years to come out: Indiana Jones 4, the album "Chinese Democracy" by the Guns N'Roses, Duke Nukem Forever, etc... and we all know that those were all definitely worth the wait, right? The Batman figure will come with an "all-new seamless body designed with an internal skeleton armature that is durable yet highly posable", 3 head sculpts and a plethora of accessories. ToyFarce received reports that other Mezco One:12 Collective Batman figures will hold a "3 Year Pre-Order Anniversary party" in the Batcave, and that everyone is invited: "We're having a huge 3 Year Anniversary party for our man, the Batman - 1989 Edition this weekend! Alfred took care of the preparations. Join us!" "Hey, '89! You come out whenever you feel like it, man! Don't rush things! We're here for you, buddy!" "Wait, is it smart to give the address of the Batcave to everybody?" More news at 11:00... We hear that Prince's Batdance will be heavily featured at the party... *ToyFarce News is parody news for laughs and not meant to be taken seriously!
  12. It's Wednesday, and you know what that means... ToyFarce review! This week, we're having a look at the Star Wars: The Black Series Holiday Edition figures from 2022 from Hasbro. Once again, each figure was exclusive to a different store, which made it really easy and fun for collectors outside the US to acquire them...NOT. This review should have been posted around Christmas, right after the Holiday Edition 2020 figures review (which can be found here), but someone (*cough* Walmart *cough*) decided that the last figure would be shipped later in January... Right in time for Christmas...ish! First, the First Order Stormtrooper, which was exclusive to Amazon and was the first one I received (I'll go through them in the order I got them). This First Order Stormtrooper is pretty much more of the same of the 2020 wave, a peppermint-green Stormtrooper, with Christmas-themed decos. He comes with a blaster rifle and a Holiday-themed mouse droid. A fun novelty item (as they all are, really), but kind of a let down since we already got a similar First Order Stormtrooper in the 2020 wave. The second one to arrive was the Hasbro Pulse exclusive Phase II Clone Trooper, with his gingerbread man colored armor. I know I just said that we already had Stormtroopers in the first wave, but this one is actually pretty fun. Gingerbread colors, with a bow tie and and buttons painted on his chest armor, and some parts painted white like if he had cream filling inside. He comes with a blaster and a Christmas Porg, dressed in red and white. The "Abominable Snowman" Wookiee was a Gamestop Exclusive, and is where the fun started, with other characters than Stormtroopers getting the Holiday treatment. This big white Wookiee reminds me of the Rankin/Bass Abominable Snowmonster of the North, all white, with blue highlights (lips, hands and feet) and red harness. The Abominable Wookiee comes with his bowcaster and a white Porg with a scarf. The Protocol Droid was the easiest one to get, as he came through 'Fan channel', I got it from BigBadToyStore. A pretty basic Protocol Droid figure, all in red, white and green, with a holiday scarf. He comes with a holiday-themed BD Droid. They could have added a christmas hat or something, so that it didn't look like a straight repaint, but oh well... The Mandalorian Warrior, a Target exclusive, might be my favorite from this wave. He has ugly christmas sweater designs on his chest armor, and just looks really cool, with the bright colors. Red and green really suit a Mandalorian well, apparently (I am convinced any color combinations would look good on a Mandalorian armor, at this point). He comes with a winter colored Bogling and his Amban phase-pulse rifle. And finally, the one that took ages to arrive thanks to Walmart pushing the delivery to mid-January, the Walmart Exclusive Scout Trooper! Another fun one, with his red armor, and Grogu ugly christmas sweater design on his chest. He comes with a mini gun, and a Christmas bag that hides a Grogu (I would enjoy it more if it didn't remind me of the Scout trooper punching Grogu through the bag in that Mandalorian episode...). This completes this second wave of 6 Star Wars: The Black Series Holiday Edition figures... ... BUT WAIT, THERE'S MORE! Since Halloween was 3 months ago, and those figures shipped last month, I figured I would add them to this review. The 2 Halloween edition figures were also exclusives to different stores, but ended up being available in more places after a while. The Halloween Edition Clone Trooper was exclusive to Target, and is a really fun figure. The idea of having the armor all in black with a skeleton painted in neon green on it was brilliant and the results looks pretty great on a shelf. He came with plastic-free packaging, and even had Halloween themed, orange paper hiding the figure. He comes with a chest that hides beskar painted to look like chocolate bars, and a vampire Porg, painted like Dracula. More of this, please! The Halloween Edition Wookiee was a Walmart exclusive (but ended up as 'Fan channel' soon after. Maybe they realized Halloween had passed already and tried to make them more easily available afterwards). This Wookiee has pointy ears (like a cat!) and the Black Krrsantan/Road Warriors chest armor with spiky shoulders (WHAT A RUSH!). He comes with a werewolf Bogling (wereBogling?) and a Halloween-themed orange cantomo (Ingenuous!) with beskar chocolate bars inside. That's it for the Holiday-themed figures of 2022! Which one was your favorite? Let us know in the comments! More news at 11:00... Happy Halloween/Merry Christmas in January!
  13. A few weeks ago, it was revealed that movie studios could now be sued over misleading movie trailers. This came after fans sued a movie studio over an actress (Ana de Armas) not appearing in a movie (Yesterday) while she was present in the trailer, but we all remember the Captain America: Civil War trailer minus Spider-man, or the Spider-Man: No Way Home trailer with the Lizard getting punched by the wind, right? Well, it didn't take long for this to seep into our favorite hobby, as toy collectors might soon be able to sue toy companies over misleading promo pictures. ToyFarce interviewed the same judge that ruled the lawsuit about the movie trailers: "The toy companies are correct that promotional pictures involve some creativity and editorial discretion, but this creativity does not outweigh the commercial nature of a promotional picture" the judge said. “At its core, a promo pic is an advertisement designed to sell an action figure by providing consumers with a preview of said figure.” "Even with the warnings at the bottom, such as 'Prototype/digital render shown, final product may vary', if the final product does not look at all like the ones from the promotional pictures, toy collectors should be able to get compensation for the deception." More news at 11:00... It shouldn't take long before reviewers could also be sued over misleading toy reviews... *ToyFarce News is parody news for laughs and not meant to be taken seriously!
  14. Happy New Year everybody! It's now 2023 and what better time to take a look back at all the things that happened in 2022, which has been a another crazy year in terms of toys and collectibles. So much stuff! Many reveals! Wow! Here are a few points that made 2022 so 2022: PRICES BE CRAZY 2023 saw prices go way up, thanks to world events and other container prices issues. Inflation was pretty high, and now our toys cost more. The good part is that now that the container prices are back to pre-covid levels, the prices of figures will probably go back to normal too, right? Right? didn't think so... SCHRÖDINGER'S TOY Hasbro introduced their plastic free packaging for all their lines, which accidentally created a new experiment: the Schrödinger's toy. Such as the feline version (who is either alive or not in a box), the Schrödinger's toy is a quantum physics experiment that happens when you buy a figure with plastic free packaging. What is inside the box can either be the correct figure, another figure, a bottle of barbecue sauce, a rock, etc... Other buyers have also called them the "Hasbro Mystery Boxes". EVERYTHING GETS RELEASED ALL AT ONCE After about 2 years of delays and release dates being pushed, the stars (and containers) finally aligned and everything was fixed... meaning that ALL THE TOYS flooded our hauls during the last 2 months of the year, leaving a lot of collectors broke for the holiday season. Also, toys that were supposed to come out later this year decided to show up early too. "Most of the toys that I ordered between mid-2019 to late-2022 all came out in november/december. It was a bloodbath." said a collector from Wisconsin. "Still no signs of the Mezco 1989 Batman, though..." NOSTALGIA, STILL NUMBER 1 You can tell that Nostalgia still has a huge place on the market when you see that most of the toy collector's Top 10 lists included either one or many, in no particular order, of the following: a T-Rex from Jurassic Park, a Transformer robot, a GI Joe figure, a Gargoyle figure, Ninja Turtles, X-Men or Spiderman animated series figures, Power rangers, a Gargoyle figure,... Are we in the 90s again? RISE OF THE KIDULTS In 2022, toy collectors also learned, after years of hearing that we were not even moving the needle a little in terms of toy sales, that we are actually an important part of the sales, making up a quarter of them! Yay, us! They also tried to coin that term with the idiotic term 'Kidult' (get it? It's like 'kid' and 'adult' lol), but let's hope it won't catch. What were ether highlights of 2022 for you? And what do you think 2023 will bring us? Let us know in the comments! More news at 11:00... let's go, 2023! *ToyFarce News is parody news for laughs and not meant to be taken seriously!
  15. It's Wednesday, and you know what that means... ToyFarce review! This week, we're having a look at the second wave of AEW Supreme Collection figures by Jazwares, that includes Kenny Omega and Malakai Black (+ Ringside Collectibles Exclusive AEW Unrivaled figures of Jim Ross and Tony Schiavone!). The AEW Supreme Collection is their equivalent to the WWE Ultimate Edition line, with better details, better articulations and tons of accessories, including different outfits, compared to the AEW Unrivaled/Unmatched lines. Before we start, we are going to need announcers! Good thing that Ringside Collectibles has the exclusive AEW Unrivaled figures of Jim Ross and Tony Schiavone (with Excalibur on the way!). They both come with a microphone and a desk chair, which is perfect to pose them sitting behind a table. First off, the packaging: Wow! Having a wide box, with the accessories displayed on the sides is something I don't recall ever having seen on any other brands. A smart way to use all the space, with the figure displayed in front of one of the AEW show entrances, the accessories on the sides, and a picture on the back. Kudos to the packaging team! (PS: They could be easier to open, still...). Today is January 4th, and Kenny Omega is going to face Will Ospreay in a dream match at the Tokyo Dome in Japan, for NJPW (New Japan Pro Wrestling), so I thought it would be a good time to review those figures that were sitting in the pile for a while (see last article about the pile...). That Kenny Omega figure is awesome, and is definitely the SUPREME action figure of him (pun completely intended). The Best Bout Machine comes with 4 different head sculpts, 2 interchangeable pairs of legs with different ring gears (including the Demon Slayer inspired one that looks oh so good!), a black duster jacket, a total of 7 different hands, a microphone and the AEW World Heavyweight Championship belt. Malakai Black is another great figure, with several different ring gear possibilities, including soft goods ones. The leader of the House of Black comes with 5 different headsculpts with 2 masked ones, 2 sets of legs so you can pick shorts or trunks for his ring gear, 2 extra hands, a plastic sleeveless jacket, and 2 soft goods hooded jackets. The details on the tattoos are phenomenal. The masks on the masked heads look just like the ones he wears on TV during his entrances. All that would be missing would be a switch so that you can turn all the lights off at once just before he makes his presence felt. The articulations on those Supreme Collection figures is on par with import figures, with additional articulations, like butterfly joints, to the already highly articulated AEW figures from Jazwares. They are fun to hold and pose really well. An amazing job from Jazwares. The AEW Supreme Collection wave 3 was revealed to include the Lucha Brothers in their All Out 2021 gear. Those are going to be some beautiful figures! More news at 11:00... Goodbye and good night! *BANG!*
