  1. On Wednesday, the Hasbro Marvel Legends team held their first Instagram Live show, as opposed to the usual Youtube 'Fan First' livestreams. Announcements, reveals, we didn't know what to expect, but when Dwight Stall and Ryan Ting appeared on our screens, we certainly didn't expect this... As soon as Dwight and Ryan popped up on our Instagram screens, we knew something was off... "Something is different... Did they get a new haircut? No, it's not that..." we thought. "Is it because we see Dwight with a background that doesn't look assymetrical or wobbly? Still not that. Oh, I see! There's a dog filter on!" It was only made worse by the fact that the dog's tongue came out anytime they opened their mouth. No one was safe, as even the action figures had the dog filter on them. It's a good thing that a lot of the figures revealed that day had a mask on (or even a paper bag on !) to spare them the humiliation. Fortunately, it didn't seem to phase Dwight or Ryan, as they pulled through and had a great livestream with tons of awesome reveals. All info about the actual livestream can be found here. Most of the figures are now up for pre-orders, so go get yours! More news at 11:00... Woof woof! *ToyFarce News is parody news for laughs and not meant to be taken seriously!
  2. It's Wednesday and you know what that means: ToyFarce reviews! This week, we're having a look at the Bojji and Kagge figures from Ranking of Kings by Bandai Spirits/S.H. Figuarts/Tamashii Nations/whatever they are called this week! Ranking of Kings is a fantastic anime with beautiful animation (reminds me of early Ghibli movies), a great story, nice characters with depth, and a lovely soundtrack (both opening and ending theme are so good). Can you tell I liked it? If you haven't seen it, do try to watch it. I didn't get into it right away, but as soon as I started watching, I knew I would need a plastic representation of Bojji on one of my shelves. The options were either a Banpresto mini statue, a Good Smile Nendoroid figure that comes out in November, or a nice, articulated S.H.Figuarts figure. The choice was easy... Prince Bojji, along with Kagge, comes with 5 different head plates, 7 extra hands, his green cape, his training stick, a sheath and his trusty rapier. The figure has a good amount of articulations, considering his size (tiny), and he's surprisingly easy to balance, even with his big head that I thought would make him 'top heavy'. The facial expressions are great, and allow for lots of different poses and situations. I would say that the white on the eyes could have been more white, though. Also, the head without faceplate is pure nightmare fuel.. Kagge could have also used maybe one ball joint for the mouth/arm, or the possiblity to remove it. Otherwise, a solid set! Hopefully, Bandai does more characters from the show, who has plenty of great designs to choose from. More news at 11:00... AaeeAeuu EeAawua!
  3. "WE'RE SLASHING PRICES!" - Those are the words displayed on the store front of the new toys and collectibles store near Camp Crystal Lake, in Cunningham County, New Jersey. The new store will have its grand opening this Friday 13th, and the locals are hoping for a ton of visitors over the weekend. "We haven't had much tourism since... you know... the events." said Jack B. who lives nearby. "We hope there will be a lot of mother and children visiting the store, especially since Mother's day was last week." "This store is going to ki... ki... kill ma... ma... my wallet!" said Pamela V., a local mother. We hope the prices are the only things that will be getting slashed today...

  4. McFarland. MacFairlane. McFreemont. McFragglerock. We've all seen Todd McFarlane's name butchered to death by fans, whether they love or hate him (even if a large part won't ever admit that they like some of his products, to look cool on the internet). The latest wave of spelling mistakes came with the announcement of the Munitions Pack, a weapon pack for all McFarlane Toys 7-inch figures, something that fans had been demanding for a long time, especially with the DC Multiverse figures not being able to have firearms, and 'fans' didn't disappoint: "MacFairlane Toys is finally doing something right, but the weapons should have come with the figures in the first place!" (It has been documented for a while that it is a Warner Bros thing, though). "McFarland's weapon pack is cool, but the weapons won't probably fit with other brands... SMH" (as if McFarlane had an obligation to make weapons for other toy lines...). "McFairmont's weapon pack sucks! Mezco did it better." (This is an actual comment I read. "McFairmont". I hope autocorrect was involved...). As a P.S.A. for future releases, please remember: It's Mc-Far-Lane. McFarlane Toys. More news at 11:00... It's an attitude! *ToyFarce News is parody news for laughs and not meant to be taken seriously!
  5. A week ago, the Hasbro Marvel Legends team (Dwight Stall, Ryan Ting and Jesse Falcon) teased on the Marvel Comics podcast that "there might be, perhaps, but likely, a new Haslab project in 2022, allegedly. Maybe. Fingers crossed. But yeah." (Something like that). ToyFarce investigated long and hard, and tried to gather information about all the potential candidates for a Haslab project, and we came to the conclusion that it could only be one thing: the Thanos-Copter. The Thanos-Copter is clearly one of the most important vehicle of the Marvel Universe. Some say it's the Bluebird, the Quinjet or even the Helicarrier, but they pale in comparison to the almighty Thanos-Copter. First, you have to imagine that Thanos, the Mad Titan, took helicopter training classes in order to be able to pilot it. There was a time when the Almighty Thanos took a break from conquering planets in the afternoons to be at his lessons. The Thanos-Copter has even made appearances in the MCU and the Lego Marvel video games. If that doesn't convince you that it's the most important vehicle, I don't know what will. No official announcement date has been given as of writing. More news at 11:00... EVIL TAKES TO THE SKY! *ToyFarce News is parody news for laughs and not meant to be taken seriously!
  6. It has been a few weeks now since Hasbro has started to introduce, in their livestreams, the idea of using less plastic on their packaging, with 'window-less packaging'. Fans have been very vocal about not being happy about the change, mentioning that, because of nefarious figure swappers, the new boxes will pretty much be 'mystery boxes', where you won't be able to know what figure is in the box and what you are going to get. Other collectors, who loved to spend 30 minutes at the store staring at each figures to pick the one with the best paint apps were not so keen about it either (What are they going to do with all that free time then?). But a group of collectors may have found the solution... Recycling! "There is no need to make more plastic, when there's already a ton of plastic that is peg warming our shelves at the store." said Bruce B., a collector from Wyoming. "What Hasbro can do is recall the 80,000 Black Series Lando Calrissian figures, along with the entire Eternals wave that are clogging our pegs, melt them down, and re-use that plastic to make the windows for the boxes. For one Constable Zuvio figure, you could probably make 6 or 7 window packagings. So imagine the numbers when we get to the Eternals waves!". We will keep you informed as things develop.

  7. Robo Force: You might not remember that name, and there is a reason for that. In 1984, Robo Force, by Ideal, was set to be the biggest robot line, with a series of toys and an animated series in the plans. That same year, at the Toy Fair, Transformers was introduced to the world... The rest is history. The line would see a couple of revivals, but never really became big. Fast forward to October 2021, when the Nacelle company (the company behind awesome TV shows like 'The Toys that Made Us' and 'The Movies that Made Us' on Netflix, 'A Toy Store Near You' on Amazon Prime, a ton of great podcasts and stand up comedy specials, and even that Zac Efron travelling show, which was surprisingly captivating!) announced that they bought the Robo Force license and were planning a revival! In order to make the best out of Robo Force, Brian Volk Weiss, the founder of the Nacelle company, would team with toy designer extraordinaire David Vonner, to make the first designs and prototypes for the line. The original figures from 1984 had the particularity of having a suction cup in order to stand up on your table, so that was definitely a component that needed to be implemented in the new figures. You can see Wrecker and Maxx Steele below. ToyFarce got the exclusive scoop from Brian Volk Weiss that a team of the world's best scientist has been hired to improve and bring us the best modern suction cup technology! (Brian replied 'sure lol' when we asked him.) We've all had bad experiences with suction cups. They can sometimes stop to stick on the surface they're on, or not work if wet,... The team of scientists will work around the clock until the suction cup technology is at its optimal! More news at 11:00...

  8. Just when we thought we'd seen it all... Last week, an ebay listing was brought to our attention: The seller offered a completely empty box from the G.I.Joe Classified Series Spirit figure, for about the same price as if the figure was in it. ToyFarce decided to investigate and found out about a store in Florida (Florida man, again?), who sells only empty boxes, complete with plastic inserts and twist ties. The owner of the store explained us that it can be either for collectors that bought a loose figure but want to keep it "MOC", or for loose action figure collectors who want to convert and become "mint in box" collectors. "Come visit our store, we have it all: Hasbro, Neca, Mezco, McFarlane Toys, Super7, Mythic Legions, SH Figuarts, ... We got all the empty boxes you need. If you got loosies, we got their boxes!" said the owner. "We even sell a "mint scent spray", that you can spray inside the box to give it that "out of factory" smell we all love!" More news at 11:00... Talk about thinking outside the box! *ToyFarce News is parody news for laughs and not meant to be taken seriously!
  9. Over the weekend, Todd McFarlane, the ToddFather himself, announced another variant of the Gunslinger Spawn, that will come with a horse, and will be exclusive to Gamestop. First there was the one with the rifle, then the one with the gatling gun, and now one with a horse. But wait, there is more! ToyFarce got the exclusive insider scoop that there will soon be a fourth version, this time with a guitar, that will be exclusive to K-Mart! The Gunslinger Spawn was certainly a hit, just like the Mortal Kombat Spawn before him, that we got in all possible flavors (mint, strawberry cream, mustard...). It made sense for McFarlane Toys to keep releasing cool variants of this one too. ToyFarce received an exclusive first look at the figure, since we did such a good job promoting the Mortal Kombat Spawn with a trumpet a few years ago. You can see that this is a legitimate sample, straight from the factory, because it comes in a tupperware, just like the ones that Todd McFarlane shows in his videos. More news at 11:00...

  10. It's Wednesday, and you know what that means... ToyFarce reviews! This week, we're having a look at the 4 main turtles from the Super7 Ultimates! Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles line. When the first few waves were announced, I skipped on them since there was only one turtle per wave, and wanted to wait to see how they were in-hand. After a few waves were announced, they started to come out and then, the secondary market prices started to creep up, and I just made my peace with the fact that I missed out on those. I thought I can't really get into a line if I don't have the main characters, right? Thankfully, last summer, Super7 announced that they would sell all 4 turtles as a bundle, with a re-issue of the first one that came out (Raphael). So... I got them! First things first, the packaging. Super7 always does an excellent job with the packaging and the unboxing experience. Each comes with its own shipper boxes, and a nice sleeve for that 'deluxe' effect. The boxes have an amazing design, where you can see the figure with all its accessories through a window (remember those?). Raphael, who used to be my favorite growing up (I lost mine in a river as a kid, so there's some trauma involved). That figure comes packed with accessories: a new and improved head, 8 extra hands, extra sais (the figure already had some on his belt, but there were additional ones), communicators (open and closed), a slice of pizza and the same 'weapon rack' that the original figures from 1988 came out with (along with those same weapons "painted and ready to use!"). Great nostalgia trick! (Can you imagine if today's collector reviewed the original figures? "What? No thigh swivel? No biceps swivel? Complete absence of ab-crunch! The head is soft, this is BS!" Thank god those came out when we were children...). Leonardo was in the second wave of figures, and comes with the same amount of accessories, except that he has katanas instead of sais (duh!), and has one less pair of hands. The articulation on those figures is pretty great, and they really are a love letter to the old ones, all while being a huge improvement/modern version at the same time. Michaelangelo, from wave 3, comes with similar accessories as the other ones, except he has a whole pizza box instead of just one slice, and a grappling hook instead of communicators. He also comes with 2 version of his nunchukus: either all plastic and straight, or with actual chains. Last but not least, the best turtle, Donatello, from wave 4. Donnie comes with the same plethora of accessories, with 2 bo staffs (in case he loses one?). And that finally completes the set of our 4 favorite turtles. Super7 did a great job at making at making those figures look just like the old ones, while being up to modern standards. The old head sculpts are spot on, and the newer versions are definitely nice to look at (Raphael being the best one of the 4, with a bit more details). $45 per figure is definitely not great, but the argument of Super7 being a smaller company and needing to have slightly higher prices also makes sense (plus, it beats paying triple on ebay). Still, I'm happy with them. I don't think I will go all-in on the line, but I do think i might have to go back and look for a couple of them... I hear Bebop and Rocksteady are awesome figures. What did you think of the Super7 Ultimates! TMNT line? Which one is your favorite? Let us know in the comments! More news at 11:00... Radical!
  11. It's Wednesday and you know what that means... ToyFarce Reviews! This week, we're having a look at the Power Rangers x Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle Lightning Collection two-packs by Hasbro (minus the Morphed Shredder which has yet to fall in my pile of loot!). For those unaware, those come from a great comic book crossover by IDW Publishing and Boom Studios, where the Power Rangers and the Ninja Turtles cross paths, and eventually the Ninja Turtles end up suiting up using the Power Rangers morphers and coins. It's a fun read! But how about those figures? It's Morphin' Time! The first two-pack released was the Red ranger Raphael with Tommy as a foot soldier. In the comic book, Tommy (yes, that Tommy, the Green Ranger!) has joined forces with Shredder and the Foot clan. Raphael is a great figure, with tons of articulations (double elbows, double knees, etc), and comes with an unmasked head, 4 extra hands, his trusted weapons, the sais and some effects for them. Tommy comes with a regular foot soldier head, a facemask to cover his face, along with a facemask that is pulled down, extra hands, a katana, lightning effects for the katana and a punch effect. The second one had Leonardo and Donatello, as the Blue and Black ranger, respectively (yeah, there was no purple ranger in Mighty Morphin', so black will have to do...). They both come with an unmasked head, 4 extra hands, their weapons (katanas for Leo and a bo staffs/axes for Donnie), along with some effects for them. Just like Raph, they are very cool figures, can be displayed in tons of action poses,... I mean, come on. They're Power Rangers Ninja Turtles! Even if they had 5 points of articulation, they'd probably still be cool! The third two-pack had the Yellow ranger Michaelangelo (once again, no orange, so close enough), and the Pink ranger April O'Neil. The turtle comes with the usual unmasked head, extra hands, weapons and effects, and April also has a camera, a microphone (so she can still fulfill her journalist duties), a bow and arrow + effect, and a blaster. Out of all 4 turtles, Michaelangelo has the most derpy unmasked head, followed very closely by Donatello. The Green Ranger Shredder has started to appear in stores, so it shouldn't be long before he joins the other ones. There's a lot of fun crossovers in comic books these days, and I hope we can get more of those fun 'special events' toys. I'd love a Transformers/Star Trek transforming Enterprise, for example... What other comic book crossover would you like to see figures of? Let us know in the comments! More news at 11:00... Cowabunga! It's Morphin' Time!
  12. Earlier this week, the Hasbro Marvel Legends team held their latest livestream, a "Fan First Tuesday" (Didn't it use to be 'Fan First Friday'? or was it Monday...), where they announced a plethora of new cool figures, along with new packaging and new prices, which were met with quite a lot of controversy from said fans. The new packaging, as shown here, will be more eco-friendly and use less plastic, which means that they will not have a window at the front showing the figure anymore, and will be all cardboard. Now, we are all totally for saving the planet and trying to reduce waste, but a lot of collectors still thought that it was not the best way to handle it. From experience, we can already tell that there are lots of nefarious "figure swappers" that would buy a figure, grab what they want from it, put another lesser figure back in the packaging and bring it back to the store for a refund... and they were doing already doing that when the boxes had windows! To be at the front of that problem, Hasbro unveiled their new idea: the Marvel Legends Mystery Boxes! That way, you won't be disappointed if the thing you find in your packaging is different from the one displayed on the box, since it will always be a surprise! Is it the Spider-man figure that you wanted? Or is it a box full of plastic spoons? A diaper, perhaps? You'll only know once you open it! More news at 11:00... Fan First News Day! *ToyFarce News is parody news for laughs and not meant to be taken seriously!
  13. It's Wednesday and you know what that means... ToyFarce review! This week, we're having a look at the first wave of new Spawn figures, from the Spawn's Universe line of McFarlane Toys! Spawn is Todd McFarlane's creation, and the very reason why he started McFarlane Toys in the first place nearly 3 decades ago (as other brands did not want to do Spawn figures for him). In the late 90's/early 00's, you couldn't go to a comic book store without seeing a ton of Spawn figures. Then, suddenly, it stopped. Sure, we got the Mortal Kombat Spawn figure in recent years, along with the Kickstarter Spawn, a new and improved version of the very first figure, but this is the first actual wave of Spawn figures. Exciting! First off, odd choice, but instead of going with a classic look for Spawn on that first wave, McFarlane Toys went for the Gunslinger Spawn instead, most likely because there is a new comic book about this Spawn coming out as well. The Gunslinger Spawn comes with 2 revolvers, a rifle and a rifle bag. The sculpt is amazing and the colors are great, with really vibrant red and green. You might hurt yourself while handling the figure with all those spikes. Still, a triumphant return for Spawn in toy form. The Redeemer, or Anti-Spawn, the heaven's equivalent to hell's Spawn, is also a nice figure, even if not my favorite from this wave. The details on the sculpt and the wings are stunning, and the Redeemer comes with his sword. The wings do leave a little to be desired, the articulation on them does not allow a lot of movement, and the peg is really thin, and one of the wings of my figure is 'locked' in a pose, and it looks like trying to move them more will break the peg. Raven Spawn also looks amazing in its creepiness. The dark colors and details, along with the axe/scythe and chains accessories will look perfectly gloomy on any shelf! The contrast with the bright green of the eyes is a nice touch. This is another figure that you might need gloves to pose, as the spikes on the gauntlets and legs are not pleasant. The Clown, a classic Spawn villain, looks just as creepy and evil as when we last saw him. This one comes with a gigantic backpack rocket launcher full of weapons, which can be a little heavy and make the figure fall backwards a lot. I don't think I know anybody who will display him with it anyway, it's kind of a weird accessory. He also comes with a knife and a razor blade. The figure itself is small, but because of the giant backpack accessory, its packaging ended up being one of the biggest of that wave... ...apart from Violator. That thing is a BEAST. Seriously, this is not a toy, it is a weapon. It is heavy, has horns and spikes growing all over and looks amazing. One of McFarlane Toys' strong suits has always been big monster figures, and we are very far from the first Violator figure, which was basically a glorified bend-em figure. This Violator looks more like the one in the modern version of the comic book (#beefy). Definitely the highlight of that wave. All that plastic for only about $50 is insane. Which was your favorite Spawn figure that you hope to see in that Spawn's Universe line? Let us know in the comments! More news at 11:00... WANDAAAA !
  14. It's Wednesday and you know what that means... ToyFarce review! This week, we're having a look at 'The Batman' first wave from the McFarlane Toys DC Multiverse line. With the movie out on HBO Max since monday, I felt it was a good time to check those out. Several other toy brands have since announced their versions of it since (Hot Toys, Mezco, SH Figuarts,...), but one thing that is for sure is that Todd McFarlane beat everybody to the punch, with these figures being available everywhere right as the movie came out, with gigantic themed end-caps full of action figures, 12-inch 'posed statues', etc.. being found all over the place. First off, Mr. Vengeance, The Batman himself. If you're familiar with the dozens of other Batman figures from that line, you won't be very surprised. It's a good figure with the usual McFarlane Toys articulations ("nO tHiGh sWiVeL? UrGh!") and it will certainly do the job at looking like the Batman from the movie on your shelf, side-eyes and all. The details on the suit and the likeness are very good. Mine came with the seemingly common defect of having a double cowl (basically, the figure came with the cape that the unmasked figure should have, so he has the cowl on his head, and the cowl folded in his back), which sucks but I'll try to get that sorted out. He comes with his grapple gun. The Catwoman figure is a bit more of a mess. The female body and articulation is okay, the details, how minimal they are, are good, but the only issue I would have with that figure is that she never really wore the mask that way in the movie. The mask did not cover her mouth in the movie, and she either had it not covering her mouth, or not at all, so that version is kind of a weird choice. Based on concept art, maybe? Also, she comes with a whip as an accessory, which has to be one of the thickest whip of all time. Finally, the Riddler, which also looks exactly like he does in the movie, regardless of if you like or don't like the design of his suit. He's using some sort of military thermal facemask to hide his face, along with some saran wrap (the figure has transparent plastic around the hair, great detail). Basic articulation as well, which fits here, since we didn't really see him do any acrobatics in the movie. He comes with the carpet tucker he used in the movie to kill his first victim. I watched the movie again on monday and I still really loved it. Are you going to watch it? How many times? Let us know in the comments! More news at 11:00... I'm Vengeance!
  15. Happy Easter, everybody! We hope you all had a nice Easter Sunday, and that your hunt for chocolate eggs (or toys!) was successful! After hunting for eggs, which one usually does in a yard, garden or park, it is not uncommon for us toy collectors to go for a toy hunt, which one usually does in a Target or a Walmart. This made us wonder if there was a possibility to combine both, by having the Easter Bunny bringing us action figures instead of the usual chocolate eggs. We asked several representative of Easter and couldn't get a right answer. Some seem to think that it's allowed. Other seem to think that you can only get action figures if they are Easter-themed (NECA Easter Bebop and Rocksteady two-pack!), or if they represent a rabbit (Usagi Yojimbo, Bugs Bunny, Bucky O'hare,...) or eggs (Pokemon's exeggcute?). However, the Easter Bunny Association gave us the confirmation that it is perfectly OK to ask for action figures on Easter, simply for the fact that it is not written anywhere that it is forbidden. Let's say it's a grey area! More news at 11:00... I'll go double-check the yard, in case the Easter Bunny brought some figures! *ToyFarce News is parody news for laughs and not meant to be taken seriously!
  16. "Welcome to Buzzblast Buzzes... where we buzz about Power Rangers!". Those were the first words we heard from Pam during last week's Hasbro Pulse Fan First Tuesday double-feature livestreams, which was preceded by an hour long Transformers reveal extravaganza. Along with Jordan and Bill (not Jarrett), the Buzzblast Buzzes crew would then proceed to entertain us for 13 whole minutes, in front of a live studio audience (we could definitely hear laughter and rounds of applause, and we confirmed it was not a laugh track) with a show full of surprises and reveals. ToyFarce heard reports that the dynamic of this trio caught the attention of some Netflix executives, who decided to sign up the show for Netflix for 2 seasons on the spot! We got an exclusive first look at the press release that will be sent everywhere soon (Entertainment Weekly magazine, etc...). Here are the pictures: More news at 11:00... GO TEAM! *ToyFarce News is parody news for laughs and not meant to be taken seriously!
  17. It's Wednesday and you know what that means... ToyFarce review! This week, we're having a look at the latest Unmatched wave of Jazwares AEW figures, series 3, with a focus on everyone's favorite bunch: The Dark Order #JoinTheDarkOrder The wave inclused the first Jazwares figure of the late Brodie Lee (RIP), along with first-ever figures of Evil Uno, Stu Grayson, Anna Jay and John Silver (aka Johnny Hungie). Brodie Lee comes with the original TNT Championship belt, with the red strap, along with a stack of paper and a rolled one (from the classic "Being the Elite" sketches which always ended with him beating down the other guys with rolls of paper... such a great touch). Evil Uno comes with a microphone and extra hands. Stu Grayson, Anna Jay and John Silver all come with an extra headsculpt and extra hands. All 5 figures also come with a pack of trading cards, which is definitely a welcome bonus! Making their way to the ring, this wave has only killer figures. The likenesses are very good, finally having most members of the same faction as a single wave is awesome (even if we still need Alex Reynolds, Number 10, Alan Angels and of course, Colt Cabana... another Dark Order wave, perhaps?). Here is the Dark Order in all their glory. We can see the very eloquent Evil Uno about to cut a promo, John Silver distracting everybody, Anna Jay corpsing and of course, Brodie Lee with the rolls of paper. As hilarious as they can be, they can definitely handle their own in the ring. Looking forward to more of them, including, hopefully, a three pack with Hangman Adam Page, with their Dark Order/cowboy outfits. More news at 11:00... Join the Dark Order!
  18. These days, it seems that the Marvel Legends action figures get revealed/leaked long before the movie is even ready. You might have seen during the weekend pictures of the Thor: Love and Thunder wave, which some have started to find at their local Walmarts, while we still haven't even seen a trailer for that movie. Well, today, we have even better for you: the wave after the wave after that one! Since they are still working on the special effects, the wave will be the actors in their motion capture suits! That new wave will include Robert Downey Jr as Iron-man, Tom Holland as Spider-man, Mark Ruffalo as Hulk, Don Cheadle as War Machine, Sean Gunn as Rocket and Krystian Godlewski, the polish actor that wore what would end up being Groot in the movie. The build-a-figure will be none other than Taika Waititi as Korg himself, and we've heard that a Deluxe Josh Brolin as Thanos figure should also be available (probably an exclusive). Which other mocap figure would you love to get? Let us know in the comments! More news at 11:00... "Wait! The special effects aren't ready!"
  19. In the last few months, we've had an abundance of Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle Party Wagon (aka Turtle Van). Playmates re-issued the 1989 version of the Turtle Party Wagon, Super7 opened the pre-orders for their own version of it to go with their TMNT Ultimates figure line, a third party brand came up with their own, and this week, NECA revealed their version of the Cartoon Turtle Van, for their line of Cartoon TMNT (pre-orders are now open, and a payment plan is available, in case NECA already made you spend a ton of money on turtles this month). We, at ToyFarce, would like to point out that Playmates also re-issued the Turtle Blimp recently. Just saying. Not implying anything... but if any of those brands wanted to give it a shot, that would be ok with us. Definitely. More news at 11:00... "Radical Ride!" *ToyFarce News is parody news for laughs and not meant to be taken seriously!
  20. Yeah, I have the Okada from that first NJPW wave, and it was definitely a disappointment. I completely agree on the accessories and will even add that the packaging is really great on those lines. Basically, those figures are great on every other aspects, except the figures themselves
  21. It's Wednesday and you know what that means... ToyFarce review! ALWAYZ READY! This week, we're having a look at the Major Wrestling Figure Podcast Ultimates figures of Matt Cardona and Brian Myers from Super7. In a nutshell, Matt Cardona and Brian Myers are two professional wrestlers that you might have seen in WWE, AEW, Impact, GCW or several other companies, that also happen to be huge toy collectors. They have a podcast together where they talk about toys every week, and Super 7 did action figures of them from that podcast. Basically, imagine your favorite toy collector/reviewer, who also happens to be a pro wrestler, getting his own action figure. The packaging has always been one of the Super7's strong suit, so the unboxing experience is definitely nice. First, the figure have their own shipper boxes. Then, there is a nice sleeve, complete with a wrestling belt wrapping it. Then the boxes themselves, with a ring deco on the front, and all the different heads and accessories displayed nicely. First off, Matt Cardona (formerly known as Zack Ryder in the WWE), the Broski himself, the Michael Jordan of toy collecting (as he calls himself). His figure comes with 3 additional headsculpts, extra hands, a Major Wrestling Figure Podcast microphone, dog tags, Cardona dollar bills and the best one: his own action figure. Yep, the action figure also has an action figure of himself! How meta! The figure in itself is ok, but the likeness could definitely be better, and the Super7 trademarked shiny plastic could use a coat of matte paint. Those figures also have the same dreaded ab-crunch that the NJPW figures also had, which is not very pretty to look at, at least on the figures that are shirtless (more on that later). Also, fun fact, the pointing finger hand is also holding an extra finger (I believe Matt explained in the podcast that it was due to tooling complications). "Got your nose!" Brian Myers (formerly known as Curt Hawkins), the Most Professional Wrestler figure also comes with a ton of accessories: 3 additional headsculpts, extra hands, his entrance facemask, a Major Wrestling Figure Podcast microphone, dog tags and his own action figure as well. Honestly, give me more action figures that come with their own action figures. This is pretty fun! Brian Myers likeness is... not great. Some of the headsculpts look like it's Odo from Star Trek: Deep Space 9 mid-transformation into Brian Myers (see pic!). Mattel's $20 bucks WWE Elite figure of Curt Hawkins did a way better job. 2 of the headsculpts have the hair glued on which does not look great. It's sad to say, but it's a good thing he comes with a face mask... Also, the ab-crunch articulation doesn't look as bad as on Matt Cardona since he's wearing a dark blue singlet. All in all (aka the bottom line), those figures are ok, but not worth the price tag ($45,99 each). I feel like if they were $10-15 cheaper, they'd probably be a bit more attractive, even if I understand that Super7 is a smaller company and does need to charge us a bit more. More news at 11:00... ALWAAAAYS READYYYY !
  22. We're fresh off Wrestlemania weekend, and boy, oh boy, have we been sports-entertained! Stone Cold Steve Austin had a match! Johnny Knoxville used all sorts of tricks against Sami Zayn! Pat McAfee got stunned! We saw Brock Lesnar vs Roman Reigns for the 49th time, but this time, it was stupendous (If I never hear the word 'stupendous' again, it will be too soon.). And also, Cody Rhodes came back to the WWE, after being one of the founding members of AEW! After hearing weeks of other reasons and rumors, ToyFarce investigated within the toy industry and found out the real reason behind Cody's defection: There was not enough AEW Cody Rhodes figures! "They only released about 12 or 13 Cody Rhodes figures (including 2 that have not yet been released) since the first wave of AEW Unrivaled figures, which came out in late 2020. That is about one Cody figure every 1,5 months. That is not enough." Cody Rhodes said, as reported by our source. "With WWE and Mattel, I hope to have a new figure announced every few weeks." AEW fans were obviously deeply saddened that there won't be more Cody figures released. Fans loved to see a new Cody Rhodes figure announced in every wave. More news at 11:00... ADRENALINE IN MY SOUL, MORE FIGURES OF CODY RHODES! *ToyFarce News is parody news for laughs and not meant to be taken seriously!
  23. Was there something supposed to happen today? What's the date, again? Anyway... If you are familiar with Jay C's Toy News International Youtube channel, you've probably seen a white and grey ball of fur appear from time to time during the news or the livestreams. That would be Salome, Jay C's cat. After months of trying to get in touch with her, ToyFarce finally managed to secure an exclusive interview on this website to understand the intentions behind the cameos. ToyFarce: Salome, thank you for this interview. Could you please say a few words to see if the cat translator works correctly? Salome: Meow. Meow? Meo...two, one, two, is it working? ToyFarce: Perfect! So... over the years, we have seen you appear in numerous videos. We never know where, and we never know when, but you always have impeccable timing with those cameos. What is the drive behind your appearances during Jay C's toy news videos? Salome: Well, as a cat, I know that I am what people on the internet want to see. So, to help out my owner Jay get more views, I pick some episodes and do cameos here and there, so that people would keep watching, in anticipation to see me again in the next one. ToyFarce: Well, a lot of people also do come for the toy news and to hear Jay's thoughts about various subjects... Salome: Some do yes, but most watch those videos to see if I would appear. ToyFarce: Alright. Which was your favorite cameo? Salome: The Holiday special from 2020 was a great one. I stayed on camera for most of the videos, and even took a nap while Jay was talking about action figures. Nearly 14 minutes of me in that video! I am sometimes way too generous... More news at 11:00... Meow.
  24. It's Wednesday and you know what that means... ToyFarce review! And now, for something completely different... This week, we're having a look at the 2 different sets of Kitten Arsenal weapons from Momotaro Toys. The first time I saw a picture of the first set, I couldn't believe it. Cats used as weapons? What japanese nonsense is this? I need 10 of them! I got the first set last year, and the second set came out a few weeks ago. The first set included 6 different weapons, all in the form of a cat: a Sniper riffle cat (complete with a cup for the scope), a Tommy gun cat (with a can of tuna for the ammo magazine), a Crossbow cat, a Sword cat (holding a fish!), Boxing gloves kittens and a 4-cat rocket launcher (in a cardboard box). Yep. That's for real. I took a few figures out to help showcase the gloriousness of these awesome weapons. The second set also included 6 different cat-weapons: A Bazooka cat (cat scratching post), a Machine gun cat (cat in a paper bag, with its bowl as the magazine), a Cat bow (stretching cat), Nunchucks/Thor's hammer with effect, a Cape with a Cat Collar and an Oxygen tank with mask (with a cat sleeping in the tank). What cat-weapons would you like to see next? Or what other animals would make great weapons? Let us know in the comments! More news at 11:00... Pick up your cat and open fire!
