  1. 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!
  2. Todd McFarlane has released a new video as part of the WonderCon at home event going on this weekend. In the video talks about various things including toys, comics and his Spawn movie. Most of the things he talks about in the video are things we've heard him say before, but I just wanted to recap a few things that stood out to me. First he confirms that the next Kickstarter that will launch later this year will be for a new Medieval Spawn figure. Last October Todd had mentioned he was thinking about Medieval Spawn for the Kickstarter treatment, but no its 100% confirmed as happening. More details should be coming soon. He says it will be run even better than the first Kickstarter . He also suggested they might do more than one Kickstarter this year. He also talks about doing more Spawn figures at general retail. Nothing really specific. At one point while he is talking about Spawn figures, they show up an image of a Violator figure being painted which you can see a screen cap for below. We've also seen him previously tease other Spawn figures like Cowboy Spawn and Redeemer Spawn Todd also mentioned his company is going to soon be announcing 7 new licenses for action figures they will be doing. I suppose some of these will include things like the Disney Mirrorverse figures we've previously reported on. He mentions it will be things based on TV shows and movies. He mentions how he is going to be doing more artist proof (unpainted) figures for as many of his lines as possible. The artist proof figures is something they had been doing with their Warhammer figures, and it looks like we could start to see similar figures in other lines like DC Multiverse. In the video he mentions they are working on a new Batmobile and something bigger. It's not clear if this is going to be another Build-A-Batmobile type thing or something that would be in scale with 7" figures. When he was showing hand gestures for size while talking about this in the video, it didn't seem like it would be something in actual 7" scale.
  3. Todd McFarlane, the Toddfather himself, has had a great week! First, we learned that the DC Multiverse line won the #1 place as action figure manufacturer in the US and Canada in 2021, awarded by the NPD Group. Todd also did a short Q&A video in which he explained that he is listening to the fans, and will try to move on from the 'side-eye' look on his figures, even if, in his opinion, having the eyes looking straight makes our figures look like mannequins. (There was also Valentine's Day this week, so a he probably also had a nice romantic dinner!) In order to show the fans that the side-eye look will be a thing of the past, McFarlane Toys has announced that, going forward, they will implement googly eyes to all the upcoming figures. "That way, you can have your figure look in any direction you want, and the problem is solved", said Todd. We will also get little baggies of "all directions eyes" so that we can add them on the previously released figures, in case the side-eye is bothering you. "Don't ever say I never do anything for you!", Todd added. More news at 11:00... Anything becomes less boring with googly eyes on it! *ToyFarce News is parody news for laughs and not meant to be taken seriously!
  4. BREAKING NEWS FROM TOYFARCE! Last week, this week, and even actually TODAY, McFarlane Toys announced more figures for their ever-growing DC Multiverse line, and about 97% of them ended up being Batman-related: More figures for the upcoming "The Batman" movie were announced last week, a simple-yet-efficient Rebirth Batman was also announced last week, 2 different Batman (!) from the Future State comic book event were announced this week, and a Target Exclusive (argh!) Batman of Zur-En-Arrh was even announced as we were preparing this article. Talk about fate! ToyFarce received an exclusive anonymous tip that this is all leading to a bigger reveal later on: The McFarlane Toys company will actually change name, and be called "McBatman Toys"! We received a watermarked picture of the logo which you can find here: What are your thoughts on the sudden (yet predictable) name change? Let us know in the comments! More news at 11:00... Quick, to the Batcave! (name of my collection room) *ToyFarce News is parody news for laughs and not meant to be taken seriously!
  5. It's wednesday and you know what that means: ToyFarce review! This week, we're having a look at the Suicide Squad wave from McFarlane Toys' DC Multiverse line. Better late than never, I know. Those were sitting in my Pile of Loot for a while, and I finally got them a bit before Christmas. It was also a great occasion to show off the awesome street diorama I got from @78pts.of.articulation! The greatest part of that wave is of course the King Shark build-a-figure, which looks just like Nanaue from the movie, in all his goofiness! First off, Harley Quinn with the red dress from the movie. I didn't think the likeness looked great from the promo pictures, but it turns out you can definitely see Margot Robbie in there. The details and tattoo look pretty great too and she comes with the javelin from... Javelin, who met his demise earlier in the movie. Bloodsport looks pretty good too, apart from his severe case of plastic diaper (some DC Multiverse figures have that). He comes with 2 swords which is nice, but as he mostly uses guns in the movie, it's a bit meh. (I know, I know, it's because of Warner Bros studios, yadda yadda, but his guns don't even look like guns, so there could have been a loophole!). Peace Maker was also one of the figures I wanted the most from that wave, with the upcoming series coming soon. It's a pretty decent basic figure. The likeness with the mask on is pretty decent, compared to the unmasked version which looked like John Cena has a stroke. He comes with a sword, but I've seen many collectors solve that issue by either getting third party guns for him, or 3D printing it themselves. Polka Dot Man. Who would have thought we'd ever get a cinematic version of Polka Dot Man, let alone an action figure for it, huh? Polka Dot Man had a great part in the movie where he could see everybody as his mother, whom he hates. He comes with his goggles, a polka dot throwing effect (yep), and an extra arm band (which i haven't figured why it came with it. Any idea?) And now, it's time for the MAIN EVENT! The King Shark build-a-figure. That thing is so much fun! Weirdly enough, he has decent articulation on his arms. The legs are kinda stuck due to the shorts, but I've seen third party soft goods shorts that enabled the legs to move a lot better (there's also a freaking third party tuxedo for him, and i'm so tempted...). Obviously, you're not gonna put him in Spider-man poses, but that was never the goal. It still is a very fun action figure. The next DC Multiverse figures I should pick will be the whole Three Joker wave (including the Gamestop one). Pretty excited about those, as I liked the comic book and that Batman figure looks like it could be the definitive McFarlane Toys Batman.

  6. Last week, Toy News International reported about some upcoming DC Multiverse figures variants, that are neither repaints, gold label, silver label, bronze label, platinum edition, "chase" or any of the other made-up names we've come to accept in that line. Indeed, those figures do not come with different paint colors, a silver or a gold paint job, they come with no paint at all! "Artist Proof" seems to be the name for those. We've now seen pictures of Lobo, Rebirth Superman and Gotham Knights Red Hood (with pew pew hands!) in their most natural grey plastic look. It is a pretty bold move during a time when people are starting to grow frustrated with the never-ending repaints from other brands, or more recently the repacks on 'vintage card' for the figures that come with the Haslab Rancor (Not even repaints: repacks!). We will see how those 'Artist Proof' figures will be received by the community. As McFarlane Toys is no stranger to not painting figures at all. The most recent was the addition of an 'Artist Proof' Classic Spawn in their Kickstarter Spawn sets, but one could go even further, back to 1997, when McFarlane Toys was actually giving away (for free!) what is now known as the "Cannes Festival Spawn figure", an unpainted action figure of Spawn from the movie, given to moviegoers in Cannes, France during the International movie festival. At least now, we got a proper packaging... More news at 11:00... No-paint is the new repaint!
  7. We knew the Batman Beyond figure was coming from McFarlane Toys, but now Todd has announced the entire wave which will include a Joker-Bot Build-A-Figure. The 4 figures in the wave will need to complete the Build-A-Figure will be released over the course of several months. This is how the release schedule will break down. -Batman Beyond - April 2021 -Shriek - June 2021 -Batwoman Beyond - August 2021 -Blight - October 2021 Todd posted a video showing all the figures but Blight which you can check out below. We have also posted some screen-caps from the video. https://www.facebook.com/watch/?ref=external&v=1122758641508177
