It's Wednesday and you know what that means... ToyFarce review! Beetlejuice, Beetlejuice, BEETLEJUICE! This week, we're having a look at the Animated series Beetlejuice figure from the BST AXN (pronounced "Best Action") line by the Loyal Subjects. The BST AXN line is a fun action figure line with a ton of variety, so much so that you could get a figure of Gandalf, Naruto, Slash from the Guns'n'Roses and Napoleon Dynamite *in the same wave*! When that Animated series Beetlejuice was announced, I pre-ordered it right away by saying his name three times. First impression: It's bigger than I thought it would be! I thought it would be slightly taller than a 1/18th figure, but at 5", it actually doesn't look too bad on a shelf next to Super7 Ninja turtles or S.H.Figuarts figures. Those BST AXN packagings also look pretty nice, as they keep them consistent throughout the line. They also give you a sticker with the logo of the line, which is always a nice thing: We need more free stickers in our lives! Beetlejuice comes with 3 extra hands, a top hat, a cane, a beetle (snack?), a yellow bottle and his friend Ginger, the tap-dancing spider. For about $20, it's a rather decent amount of accessories. The figure itself is really nice too! It's great to finally get a figure of Beetlejuice from the animated series from the early 90s. We had Beetlejuice action figures from Kenner back in the day, but those were more inspired by the movie than the animated series. NECA also did some great figures for the movie, but i believe this is the first time we get the actual animated series one (apart from Burger King toys). The "Ghost with the most" has a decent amount of articulations: double elbows, double knees, ab crunch, thigh and bicep swivels... Okay, it won't move like your Spider-man figures, but it's a start! The fun factor and nostalgia is what makes it a great figure. There's also a Lydia figure supposed to join him at some point, that was announced a while ago. The Loyal Subjects is doing a great job with that line, and I hope we'll get more figures from IPs that didn't get enough toy love. More news at 11:00... IT'S SHOWTIME!
Looks like both Beetlejuice and the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles action figures are going to be joining the 5" BST AXN line from The Loyal Subjects. These images come via instagramer toyhypeusa. For those not familiar with the BST AXN line, the figures are said to have around 25 points of articulation and generally cost around $15.99 each. Stay-tuned for more details on these new figures as they become available.
UPDATE: Some have pointed out this is more likely a tease for their Mega Scale Beetlejuice figure they showed off back in February during Toy Fair, and we agree. Still we want to hear from you on how much demand there would be for a One:12 version. Mezco posted this image of the Michael Keaton Beetlejuice character today on their Twitter account. We can't say for sure but looks like they might be hinting to another upcoming figure for their One:12 Collective line. Let us know, do you want to see Mezco do a One:12 Collective Beetlejuice figure?
