  1. There are some minor differences between the two figures.
  2. I will say classifying these as $45 Ultimate figures I feel is a bit of a stretch. Looks like these have at best 5 points of articulation. I get they have a lot of accessories but doesnt seem like there is much you can do with these.
  3. Boss Fight Studio, creator of fan-favorite, highly articulated figures announces their latest action figure line, The Umbrella Academy from television studio Universal Content Productions and brokered by UCP’s licensing agency, Striker Entertainment! With characters based on the wildly popular Netflix show, the action figures will feature Boss Fight’s signature multiple articulation points allowing for creative and imaginative poses. “The Umbrella Academy has long been one of our favorite shows,” says Catrina Arana, Partner and Art Director at Boss Fight Studio, “we love each character and the uniqueness; I’m excited to bring them to action figure form.” The first wave of figures will include Klaus, Vanya, Diego, and Cha-Cha and is anticipated to hit shelves in Q2 2021. “We’re thrilled to be partnering with Boss Fight Studio” says Curtis Matthews, Licensing Executive at Striker Entertainment LLC. “Their signature high articulation and attention to detail will really bring the character personalities forward. The poses and movement possibilities are exciting.” Launched in 2013, Boss Fight Studio originally brought their fan favorite Vitruvian H.A.C.K.S. IP to market, allowing for easy customization and playability of toys. As the company grew, they’ve expanded to host some exciting licenses bringing that same high articulation and attention to detail to fan-loved brands. Umbrella Academy is the latest brand added to the portfolio. “We can’t wait to excite new fans with these toys. This is our first license with a contemporary show playing as we design. It will be fun to transform the beloved characters along with the story lines on the show” says Arana. “I’ve already started brainstorming how to bring Season 2 characters to life and I can’t wait.”
  4. Super7 is thrilled to announce the beginning of what we imagine will be an amazing creative partnership between Super7 and our childhood heroes over at Disney. It begins today, with the launch of our first three Disney collectibles: a trio of Ultimates! Figures commemorating some of our favorite characters from the formative years of the Magic Kingdom. It will continue with...well, you’ll just have to wait and see. Ultimates! Figures are the perfect medium for our Disney launch. They provide an opportunity to serve up all bells and whistles; the ability to create something truly unique for both the Super7 and Disney obsessive fan. Our approach, as with everything, was to dig beneath the surface to find the spirit and the angles that allow us to make the toys we always wanted. The details expressed in each Ultimates! Figure are unrivaled; exactly what you want when you’re working with the classics. And the care taken to create each? That, too, is on another level. As to who gets this very special treatment, we dove deep and emerged with a few that have always held a special place in our hearts. Ones that represent the Super7 way of looking at the world. Here’s the exclusive lineup: Sorcerer’s Apprentice Mickey Mouse From the timeless animated classic Fantasia comes Mickey Mouse, in the role that captured our imaginations as far back as we can remember. We used that same kind of big dreaming, hustle, know-how and a little bit of magic to bring this little marvel to life. Our first Disney toy ever is super poseable and features three interchangeable expressive heads, interchangeable hands, two water buckets, animated broom, axe and the Sorcerer’s giant spell book. The Ultimates Sorcerer’s Apprentice is also dressed in a tailored, velvety-soft wizard robe with a real rope tied waistband. Pinocchio One of the darkest, wildest, most incredible stories ever set to animation cels, Pinocchio gave us nightmares for years, and a hard-won set of lessons for the rest of our lives. The puppet with a penchant for tall tales and a curiosity for life reflected our deep yearning for adventure, and to fit in – perfectly telling the tale of becoming the person you’re meant to be. Super7’s Ultimates! Pinocchio is a super poseable action figure with 3 interchangeable heads showing his growing nose, interchangeable hands, his conscience Jiminy Cricket (of course), school book, axe, apple, Cleo’s fishbowl, Figaro the Cat, and a smart fabric vest with gold trim. Prince John Truly one of the great cartoon villains, Prince John and his maneless, spineless monarchy is a masterclass in political mismanagement; one he pays dearly for. Particularly with Robin Hood stealing John’s resources any time his back is turned. The Prince John Ultimates! super poseable action figure features three interchangeable heads, interchangeable hands with and without the jewels of his rings, two versions of the slithering assistant Sir Hiss, a vanity mirror, and a luxurious, plush velvet regal robe with fur trim. These will be priced individually at $45 or in a set for $135. Once again, we’re thrilled that Disney has given us this rare opportunity to bring our point of view to characters and experiences that helped define our own childhood. We hope you like them—and we can’t wait to show you what else we’re making from our favorite Disney moments from film, TV, and Parks.
  5. Yesterday we showed you the single carded 4" Hero H.A.C.K.S Zoro figure coming from Boss Fight Studio. Today we give you a look at an alternate Zoro figure they are releasing which will be included as a set with his trusty steed Tornado. Check out the new image below and stay-tuned for more details on this as they become available.
  6. Pennywise is everything you were ever afraid of and now, he's joining the Mezco Designer Series. Pennywise features an interchangeable head portrait depicting his deterioration after being defeated by the Losers Club. An interchangeable left pointing hand and an interchangeable monster-like right hand are included. Pennywise comes complete with a set of 3 balloons with "TURN BACK NOW" written on the yellow balloon. All 3 balloons or just the singular yellow balloon can be held neatly in his right hand. From his fire-red hair to his oversized clown shoes, Pennywise is every nightmare you've ever had. He wears a brightly colored clown suit with pom-pom detailing on the front. MDS IT (1990): Deluxe Pennywise stands 6" tall and features 9 points of articulation. He comes packaged in a window box, perfect for display.
  7. S.H.Figuarts Bardock is here! Sculpted to faithfully capture his appearance in the classic TV special, the set includes multiple expression parts and effect parts, and he can be displayed with or without his scouter. You can pre-order this figure from our sponsor BigBadToyStore.com. The figure includes the following: - 3 Face plates - 2 Left hands - 3 Right hands - Scouter - Optional bangs part - Optional ear part - Beam attack effect
  8. Yeah the thing is these are totally meant for young kid ages 6 years old.
  9. Are those Jazwares? The only Micro Machines I ever collected where the Star Trek ones back in the day. While these are pretty generic, Jazwares has said they will be announcing new licensed stuff for the line next year. Will be curious to see what those are.
  10. I would love to know if anyone who bought the figure at $36 was offered a refund of the difference. I was tempted to buy it at $36 just to see if a refund would be offered but since I was worried it wasnt actually listed at that price in error I didnt want to be stuck with a $36 Teela figure.
  11. It's a cool figure, would be nice if you could find it in stores.
  12. Put back to $14.99 but also sold out. Not sure I would call that fixed.
  13. We first saw this figure on display back during Toy Fair, and now the folks at Boss Fight Studio have released new images for their upcoming 4" Hero H.A.C.K.S Zoro figure. Shown below is card art as well as a look at the latest production sample from the factory of the actual figure.
