  1. ust because Christmas is over doesn't mean the give-aways stop here on TNI. Starting today we are runnings BONUS TNI Forum Contest for a chance to win a $100 store credit to BigBadToyStore.com. Here is what you have to do in order to be entered for a chance to win this round. 1. You have to be a registered member of the TNI Message Boards. 2. Any contributing post made ANYWHERE in THIS SECTION or THIS STAR WARS SECTION of the forums between today (12/26) and December 30, 2022 will get you entered into our drawing for the store credit. Every contributing post you make will get you an entry in the drawing, so the more you post the better your chances of winning are. Posts must be contributing to the topic or discussion though. ONE WORD posts or posts deemed as SPAM will not be counted towards the drawing. A good rule of thumb is to post how you would normally post if there was no contest. As an ADDED BONUS, if you help us spread the word about this contest on your favorite social media platform or group and you comment in this thread that you did so, you will automatically receive 3 additional entries into the drawing which will help your chances to win. Helping spread the word about the contest helps grow this community which is in large part something that we feel will benefit all. Now since we have no real way of knowing if you actually help spread the word for this, we are going to have to go on the honor system with this part and take your word for it if you indicate you've done so. However please feel free to tag @ToyNewsInterna1 on Twitter and @ToyNewsi on Instagram when you spread the word. The drawing will be held on December 31, 2022 and the winner will be contacted by JayC via PM on the message boards that day. Once the winner has claimed their price we will also announce the winner on the forums as well. You do need to remember to check your inbox 24-48hrs after the contest ends, we can't hold off on announcing the winner indefinitely, and if the person doesn't claim their prize in that time we will have to draw another name. Our goal is to create the ultimate online action figure collecting community and this contest is our way of saying thank you for checking us out and being part of that community. Good luck to everyone.
  2. If you have a bunch of DC fans getting mad at you with recent actions like doing away with Henry Cavill as Superman, what better way to get them back on your side again than invoke memories of everyone's favorite DC animated shows from the 90s such as Justice League Unlimited and Young Justice as a roadmap for your new DCU. Well that is what DC Studios Co-Head James Gunn did last week. When asked by a fan on Twitter if any of the animated DC Shows like Justice League Unlimited and Young Justice were an inspiration for planning out this new movie universe, Gunn responded by saying Definitely. Of course in all honesty that could really mean anything, but it's certainly something that if Gunn really pulled off would make most DC fans happy. I don't think you would find to many folks claiming those shows or their predecessors like Batman: The Animated Series and Superman: The Animated series sucked.
  3. Looks like Hasbro isn't done mashing up G.I. Joe and Transformers toys in 2023 because based on a report from JTPrime there is at least one more coming which will see the Transformers Decepticon Soundwave transforming into the G.I. Joe Dreadnoks Thunder Machine. The set will include G.I. Joe 3 3/4' O-ring figures of Zartan and Zarana along with a Transsformers Ravage with chain. This would be the third G.I. Joe x Transformers figure Hasbro has released recently. The first one was a Megatron that transformed into a Cobra H.I.S.S Tank and the second was Bumblebee that transformed into a G.I. Joe A.W.E. Striker. Both of those are currently available at places like our sponsor BigBadToyStore.com. Hasbro has yet to confirm the Soundwave as Thunder Machine set so we will treat that as RUMOR until they do.

  7. The winner of this months contest was RickytheRockstar. Congrats to them and thanks to everyone who participated. Stay tuned for more details on the next contest launching soon.
  8. Yesterday we were the first to report how a Canadian Distributor had put up some strange listings for new Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles products that appeared to be more kid oriented type stuff. You can see the listings below. The strange thing about the listing is that the distributor showed they were coming from McFarlane Toys as opposed to Playmates Toys which is the company one would expect to see making stuff like this. Today those listings have been removed from the distributor website, which that unto itself isn't to surprising. Even if the listings where accurate they probably weren't meant for public consumption at this time. What is a little strange however is when you click on the link to one of the specific products that were listed yesterday, all that comes up on the page now is a Playmates Toy logo. You can CLICK HERE to check it out. As we cautioned yesterday, nothing has been confirmed about McFarlane Toys doing TMNT, let alone product for the new animated movie as some have been reporting. We also suggested it was possible this distributor could have made an error in what toy company was making the TMNT product they had listed. I still can't sit here and tell you which scenario is accurate, but I do find it odd that a Playmates Toys logo was left in the place of the original listings, suggesting perhaps these were actually Playmates Toys product listings and not McFarlane. Since neither company is likely going to comment on this until or if there is some kind of official announcement made, which at the earliest would likely be in February around Toy Fair time, it will probably be a while before we know one way or the other what is going on. But ONCE AGAIN, just know that nothing is even remotely confirmed about McFarlane doing any kind of TMNT let alone something specific like new movie products.

  16. According to the site production list, a new Alien movie with the working title Alien: Romulus will begin production starting February 06, 2023 in Budapest, Hungary.
  17. Forbes has reported that Warren Buffett's Berkshire Hathaway has purchased Jazwares who most of us here know for action figure lines like Fortnite, Halo and AEW. Now if your wondering who Buffett is, well he's one of the most successful investors in the world and has a net worth of over $100 billion as of November 2022. THis puts him as the sixth-wealthiest person in the world. It's not really clear what this buyout will actually mean for Jazwares, but Jeremy Padawer who confirmed the sale says he will be staying on with the company as the Chief Brand Officer.
  18. These are likely product for the new Animated movie coming, but it would be very unlikely Playmates would let another company make toys for that if they were still the master license holder since that is were the real money is generally made for licenses like this.
  19. A distributor in Canada has listed a ton of new Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles products coming in July 2023. Here is the kicker though, the company they say these products are coming from is McFarlane Toys. Even stranger is that the products look to be more kid oriented stuff that you would expect to see coming from Playmates Toys You can see all the listings below. It's not known if this is some kind of error or if McFarlane Toys has grabbed up the TMNT license from Playmates Toys. If it's the latter then that also begs the question of what will happen with companies like NECA and Super7 who have been doing more collector oriented TMNT products. Will McFarlane also be doing the collector stuff or leave that to the other companies? It should be noted that none of this is confirmed at this time so we will treat this as total RUMOR until we get some kind of official confirmation or details which may not come until next year around Toy Fair time in February. When or if more details become available we will be sure to update you. Thanks to Scareglow for the heads up.
  20. Shown below via Sgt.Pepper's Hobby Club are some new in-hand images for a number of 7" DC Multiverse figures from McFarlane Toys that are already out overseas and be released in the US sometime in 2023.

This wave includes Deathstroke, Wonder Woman and Nightwing. The wave is currently hitting overseas and here in the US will be released as Walmart exclusives.

  22. Shia LaBeouf will not be appearing in the new Indiana Jones: Dial of Destiny movie who in the last movie was introduced as Indy's son named Mutt. However according to the new movie's director James Mangold in a recent interview with EW, we will find out what happened to him.
  23. Look for the WWE Ultimate Edition Attitude Era Scale Ring with Kane set from Mattel which was originally released as a Ringside exclusive to be available on the MattelCreations website starting on January 4, 2023.
  24. Shown below via Jackytoysbox is an in-hand look at the new DC Multiverse 7" Kingdom Come Armored Batman figure from McFarlane Toys. This figure has already started seeing release overseas. No word on when we will see it released or go up for pre-order here in the US.
  25. On overseas distributor has listed several new Masters of the Universe Origins sets that look to be coming in 2023 from Mattel. These have not been officially confirmed by Mattel at this time so we will consider these to be rumor until that happens. The sets listed are as follows: Masters of the Universe Orgins Skeletor and Screech Action Figure 2-Pack - We saw Teela with Zoar released this year so this likely will be a similar type release. Masters of the Universe Origins Glow In the Dark Skeleton Warrior Action Fig 2-Pack - We saw these figures on display at the Mattel booth at this past summer's SDCC convention. The distributor lists this as an exclusive so it could be a store exclusive here in the US. Masters of the Universe Origins Snake Men Action Figure 4-Pack - No word on what figures might be included in this one but is also listed as an exclusive so again may be a store exclusive here in the US. When more details become available on these we will be sure to let you know.
