  1. It's Wednesday, and you know what that means... ToyFarce review! This week, we're having a look at a few items from the Fresh Monkey Fiction Naughty or Nice line, that came out just in time for the holiday season (unless you have to deal with the international post system, and then you get them a couple of weeks later...)! When they were announced, a little over a year ago, I immediately pre-ordered the Classic Santa, the Accessory pack and one of the Elves. I kept going back to look at the pictures of the other versions of Santa, and finally gave in and added the Zombie Santa to my list later on. Those figures are exclusive to BigBadToyStore. The packaging for the Santa figures is reminescent of the pre-plastic-free Marvel Legends packaging, same shape, the window in the front, etc. It wouldn't be a surprise if they came from the same factory! It's a nice, familiar packaging, like meeting an old friend that you havent seen in a while. The packaging for the Elves is also collector friendly, with a plastic shell and a card that you can slide in and out in the back to grab the figure, and the Accessory pack has a nice and flat packaging, with a window in the front. First, the OG, the Classic Santa. Well, what a pleasant surprise: it's a very nice figure! The sculpt and paint apps are great, and the figure has a decent amount of articulations (no double elbows/double knees/thigh swivels but it's Santa, not Spider-man). The Classic Santa comes with 2 head sculpts (normal and winking), 3 extra hands, a present (that can be opened), his list (I hear he checked it twice!), a plate with 2 cookies and a glass of milk (you can remove the milk from the glass to turn it into... just a glass!) and a stand. The hat can be removed and put on the other head sculpt. It seems this 'first edition' has a beard that is a bit more yellow, while the '2023 edition' will have a white beard, but I don't mind that, it adds a bit of contrast. Overall, a fun figure to add in all your Christmas related toy photography. The elves are smaller figures, at about 4" tall. They're basically 5 points of articulation figures (head, arms and legs). They all come with 3 different heads, so I picked the one with the costume that looked the more like a Chrismtas elf to me (green with red and white stripes). Betty the Elf comes with 2 extra head sculpts, a different hat, so you can turn her into any of the other elves, a candy cane, and a present. The different styles of Santa are where the fun is at with this line. I grabbed the Zombie Santa, and he did not disappoint. The sculpt and paint look great. He comes with another head sculpt, Evil Santa, and a pair of hands, so you can turn him into another version of Santa. He also comes with a lump of coal (for naughty children), an axe (also for naughty children), the same plate with cookies and glass of milk, but the plate is black, the cookies are rotten and green, and the milk has turned black (ew!), a present and a stand.. A very fun figure, that will be perfect to display during the time between Halloween and Christmas! The Accessory pack comes with some soft goods items, such as a hooded cape and a big red present bag. There are also 2 stockings, a stack of presents, a present, Santa's list, a candy cane, the plate with cookies and milk and 2 lumps of coal. Basically, the Accessory pack has most of the accessories that I got from the other figures apart from the soft goods items, the stockings and the stack of presents. Oh well... they're the funnest part of it anyway! The cape fits any of the santa figure pretty nicely, and seems durable. A great set if you want to get your other figures all 'Christmas-y' too! Fresh Monkey Fiction delivered some great figures, and if the upcoming Operation: Monster Force figures (from them and BigBadWorkshop) are anything like those Naughty or Nice figures, we will definitely hear a lot about Fresh Monkey Fiction in the future. Thumbs up! More news at 11:00... This is the last Christmas related review for a while, I swear!
  2. I was in a bit of a custom funk, when a package that I had been waiting for a (very) long time from BBTS finally arrived. The Fresh Monkey Fiction "Blank Slate" female Secret Wars style figure from their Amazing Heroes line. Could not wait to get to work, and add some women to the Secret Wars line. I figured I would start with Spider-Woman, as it's not everyone's first choice and it shows off the possibilities of the blank figure. Just paint, which adheres very nicely to the figure. Even difficult colors like yellow apply nicely. If it's makes a difference, I used Vallejo brand paints. Hope you enjoy, and as always feedback is appreciated. Thanks for looking.
  3. Fresh Monkey Fiction in collaboration with Arlen Pelletier and BigBadToyStore proudly present THE NAUGHTY OR NICE COLLECTION. A line of Christmas themed 1:12th (6-inch) scale action figures. The Naughty or Nice Collection includes multiple versions of Santa Claus including: Classic Santa, Zombie Santa, Robot Santa and Sgt. Santa as well as a variety of unique Elves and Nutcrackers to complete your collection. Each figure has been designed and sculpted by toy industry veteran Arlen Pelletier (Hasbro Marvel Legends, Star Wars & Mezco 5 Points, MDS, One:12) with the attention to detail and playable articulation fans expect and deserve. The Naughty or Nice Collection is exclusively offered through BigBadToyStore as a Minimum Order Quantity (MOQ) Pre-Order item via Fresh Monkey Fiction, which means they'll need to reach a minimum amount of pre-orders during the event to move these figures into production. If they meet the MOQ pre-orders during the event, they'll unlock the ability to add even more Christmas themed stretch goal surprises to you collection. So stay tuned for more and go order your set now! Pre-order now from our Sponsor: BigBadToyStore
  4. It's December and Christmas is in the air. The holiday season is in full bloom, and it's not uncommon for people to get the holiday blues, but it's not often that it happens to our figures! We checked on a few figures and asked them: "What's up with all the blue?" First, the G.I. Joe Classified Series Hasbro Pulse Con 2021 Exclusive "Master of Disguise" Zartan (that's a mouthful!). Some people noticed that, due to the cold weather during the delivery, their Zartan arrived already blue to their homes. But some other have noticed their Zartan turning blue for no reason during the day too! We contacted the office of Doc, the G.I.Joe Medic, who told us that if your Zartan stays blue for more than 4 hours, please see a doctor. This week, we got our first peek at an upcoming wave of Star Wars: The Black Series figures (available here) , and we couldn't help but notice that Bib Fortuna has a weird shade of blue on his face. After a quick investigation, it turns out that good ol'Bib went a bit too heavy on the blue milk... The Tatooine medical center confirmed to us that it one of the side effects of drinking too much blue milk, and that Bib Fortuna will eventually be fine. He might even end up getting a gig in a future commercial... Lastly, we inquired about the new Jack the Frosty Elf figure from the Naugthy or Nice Collection from Fresh Monkey Fiction (available here). The recently revealed Elf is definitely bluer than his co-workers, so we asked if it was the cold weather or blue milk that were the cause, but we got a reply from Santa's office: "No, it's just depression." More news at 11:00... Da ba dee, dabba da?
  5. Continuing with my "retro" line of figures inspired by the original 1984 Mattel Secret Wars line, comes Moon Knight. I dremeled out the cowl from a Dr.Doom and inserted a Spider-Man head inside. Then I added apoxie sculpt details to a Fresh Monkey fiction, Blank body, and finally added a cape from a custom seller after paint. Hope you enjoy it, and more to come.
  6. This figure based on legendary G.I. Joe comic book writer Larry Hama was originally offered through a Kickstarter by Fresh Monkey Fiction back in 2017, but now you can pre-order it from our sponsor BigBadToyStore.com. The 4" figure is slated for released next year and will include a pair of interchangeable hands and a USS Flagg hat.
