  1. I assume your being sarcastic but Build-A-Figure wave is used by another company and it denotes the wave has a BAF in it, this case Bane.
  2. McFarlane Toys today released a preview image for their upcoming DC Multiverse 7" Dark Knight Trilogy Joker figure. This will be part of a Build-A-Wave which as we saw last year at NYCC will also include Batman, Scarecrow, Bane and Two Face. Look for these to go up for pre-order soon.
  3. If your looking for a cool display piece to use with your 6" G.I. Joe Classified figures then you may want to check out this Disney's Aladdin Cobra Light-Up Throne with Jafar. The measurements for it are listed as 12'' H x 8'' W x 3 1/2'' D, so if you remove Jafar it might make a nice place for your Classified Cobra figures to hang out at. It is pricey though. The Throne is being sold for $160 on ShopDisney. Also Amazon has a one-day sale going on for the G.I. Joe Classified Xamot figure which they are selling for $17.49. Unfortunately his brother Tomax is still selling at full price.
  4. Tamashii Nations has released images from one of their overseas events giving us our first look at their Spider-Man: No Way Home S.H. Figuarts Green Goblin figure which will include his Glider. When more details become available we will be sure to update you.
  5. Shown below is a look at the Obi-Wan Series S.H. Figuarts Obi-Wan Kenobi figure from Tamashii Nations. It comes with a soft-goods robe, lightsaber, multiple heads, multiple hands and two versions of Leia's L0-LA59 (Lola) droid. Look for it to be released in June 2023.
  6. Shown below are in-hand images for the new Masters of the Universe Origins Frog Monger figure from Mattel. This figure which is currently sold out was sold as a Mattel Creations exclusive. The figure comes with a gun, jet pack and mini-comic titles "Horde Of Frog Monger". Frog Monger is a character that was originally depicted in the sticker used for the dungeon grate of the Castle Grayskull playset. You can see his face and hand in the bottom right corner. Check our full GALLERY of images for this figure below.
  7. McFarlane Toys today released a preview image for their upcoming DC Multiverse 7" Dark Knight Trilogy Scarecrow figure. This will be part of a Build-A-Wave which as we saw last year at NYCC will also include Batman, Joker, Bane and Two Face. Look for these to go up for pre-order soon.
  8. The DC Multiverse Walmart Exclusive 7" Batman: DC Vs Vampires and Eradicator: Shock Wave Gold Label figures from McFarlane Toys have both finally been listed on the Walmart website. The two figures have been hitting physical stores for weeks. NOTE the two figures are NOT currently available for purchase, at least not from Walmart themselves. Don't buy them from secondary market sellers who also sell on Walmart's website. I don't believe they have been made available online by Walmart themselves yet, but these might become available during the next Walmart Collector-Con event, if not sooner. The next Walmart Collector Con will be taking place March 16th-17th starting at 10am ET. See the direct links below for the two figures: -DC Multiverse Eradicator: Shock Wave -DC Multiverse Batman: DC Vs Vampires
  9. Disney+ and Lucasfilm have announced that the second volume of the animated anthology series “Star Wars: Visions” will premiere exclusively on Disney+ on May 4, 2023. Following on the Emmy Award-nominated success of “Star Wars: Visions,” the newest volume will continue to push the boundaries of “Star Wars” storytelling, with nine new shorts from 9 studios from around the globe. Employing the most captivating animation styles from a variety of countries and cultures, the second volume offers a dynamic new perspective on the storied mythos of Star Wars. The shorts included in “Star Wars: Visions” Volume 2 were created by the following international animation studios: El Guiri (Spain), Cartoon Saloon (Ireland), Punkrobot (Chile), Aardman (United Kingdom), Studio Mir (South Korea) Studio La Cachette (France), 88 Pictures (India), D’art Shtajio (Japan), and Triggerfish (South Africa). D’Art Shtajio’s short was created in collaboration with Lucasfilm Ltd. (United States). “The reaction to the first volume of ‘Star Wars: Visions’ blew us away. We were delighted that this project inspired and resonated with so many people,” says James Waugh, “Star Wars: Visions” executive producer and Senior Vice President Franchise Content & Strategy at Lucasfilm. “We always saw ‘Star Wars: Visions’ as a framework for celebratory expressions of the franchise from some of the best creators working today. Animation is in a global renaissance, and we’re constantly staggered by the amount of creativity pushing the medium forward. With Volume 1, the imaginative minds of Japan’s anime industry were on full display. With Volume 2, we expanded our canvas to take audiences on a global tour of some of the most talented creators from around the world. We’re so proud to be able to reveal the line-up of studios we’ve assembled. Every short is incredible, full of heart, scope, imagination, and the values that make stories distinctly ‘Star Wars’ — all while opening up bold new ways of seeing what a ‘Star Wars’ story can be.” Waugh executive produces “Star Wars: Visions” Volume 2 along with Jacqui Lopez and Josh Rimes.

  10. The folks from Geek Life Dad got a chance to attend the German Toy Fair this past week where they are reporting that they got to see a bunch of new Masters of the Universe products on display by Mattel. No photos were allowed to be taken but they did give descriptions for what they saw. Note the descriptions given were from memory and he sounds unsure about some of the specific details of what he saw for some of the figures. However this does confirm some of the recent retail listings we have seen leak out and there where a few new items on hand as well. This is how it breaks down. Masters Of the Universe Origins Snake Mountain Playset - The colors look more accurate than the prototype we saw late last year by Mattel. Masters Of the Universe Origins Talon Fighter with Point Dread - Looks very similar to the vintage one as far as size and design. The Castle part matches the colors of the Origins Castle Grayskull. We saw Masters Of The Universe Origins 200x King Randor Masters Of The Universe Origins Snake Teela Masters Of The Universe Origins 200x(ish) looking Man-At-Arms - with purple armor. This might be a snake Man-At-Arms. Masters Of The Universe Origins Snake Trooper - that looked like an Eternian Guard with a snake head. Masters Of The Universe Masterverse Deluxe New Eternia Whiplash - with extra alternate type of removable armor. Has a feel of the 200x Whiplash. Masters Of The Universe Masterverse Deluxe New Eternia Ram Man - Also has a extra alternate armor. Not as big as the Classics version, seemed small next to Whiplash. He said it was articulated. Masters Of The Universe Masterverse Faker - with blue with pink armor. Sounds like it may be the same body used as the previous Masterverse Faker. Masters Of The Universe Masterverse Clamp Champ - Didn't specify if it was a Revelations or New Eternia version. Masters Of The Universe Masterverse Revelation Classic Mer-Man
  11. loved them all but my overall my favorite GIJoe reveal of the day goes to Scrap Iron. I love the update to his missile launcher. Which by the way looks like it could be easily modified to become one of the Joes Pac Rats. So I could see them maybe doing that as a pack-in for a Joe figure down the road.

  17. Apparently today is G.I. Joe Day and to celebrate Hasbro is releasing new renders of upcoming G.I. Joe Classified figures. To start things off they have shown off the render for the upcoming Classified Snow Job figure.
  18. SpeekyGeeky has posted an interview he did with NECA's Brand Manager Trevor Zammit late last year. Besides getting some good insight to the line during the interview, we also get some updated looks at upcoming products NECA will be released for their TMNT lines. Also of note, it looks like both those Baby Turtles and Big Macc figures will be released in an upcoming accessory set along with a bunch of other random items from the animated series. The Dimension X portal will be sold as it's own thing and come with a 3 different lenticular cards you can slide in it. Napoleon Colossus will come with two heads, Jersey Red, Grunt, Tall Thug and Short Gangster will come with alternate mutant parts. We get a better looks at the Mirage Comics Shredder Clones and Triceraton Zog. Check out the entire interview and images below.
  19. Thanks to Walmart we have our first look at the Masters of the Universe Rulers Of The Sun Duplico figure. He apparently is the Heroic Duplicator. This figure is likely part of wave 13.
  20. Kaiyodo has released a preview images showing off their upcoming DC Amazing Yamaguchi Revoltech Flash And Reverse Flash. Look for more details to come soon.
  21. Shown below are images for the upcoming S.H. Figuarts Chainsaw Man Samurai Sword figure from Tamashii Nations. The figure is scheduled for release in July 2023 and should go up for pre-order on 2/2. The figure will include Interchangeable lower jaw parts and 2 pairs of interchangeable hands.
  22. See I disagree because that's not how these movies are made these days. They are made to be 1 piece of an overall story. So when you start getting invested in that story and they pull the rug out from under you it very much becomes frustrating to watch.
