  1. Greetings everyone, I finally started using my eBay account to sell some of my items. Please take a look and see if you can find anything you may be interested in. Hoping to move some items so that I can scale down my collection and concentrate on other interests. The hottest item being auctioned right now is the 1964 Hasbro GI Joe with a rare State Patrol Trooper uniform - https://www.ebay.com/itm/Vintage-1964-Hasbro-GI-Joe-Doll-Figure-blonde-hair-cheek-scar-/393887813820?mkcid=16&mkevt=1&_trksid=p2349624.m46890.l6249&mkrid=711-127632-2357-0. I started the bid at a low price, so this could be good opportunity for collectors. I’ve heard that reproductions of this uniform are selling for $125 and genuine ones can sell as high as $200. Last time I checked, the bid was around $80+. Some of my other popular items include; Dragonball Z Cell Figurine - Banpresto Dramatic Showcase, 1st Season Volume 1 https://www.ebay.com/itm/393880820280?mkevt=1&mkcid=16&mkrid=711-127632-2357-0 Dragonball Z Figure Lot - Bandai Freeza/Frieza, Majin Buu, Kale, Shenron, Rilldo https://www.ebay.com/itm/393885770872?mkevt=1&mkcid=16&mkrid=711-127632-2357-0 Kenner & McFarlane Aliens Predator toy lot - Grid, Scorpion, Ultimate, Hive Wars https://www.ebay.com/itm/393880716321?mkevt=1&mkcid=16&mkrid=711-127632-2357-0 Bandai Rainbow Mothra, NECA WizKids MUTO & 1998 Godzilla Rings Figure/Toy Lot - https://www.ebay.com/itm/393887923025?mkevt=1&mkcid=16&mkrid=711-127632-2357-0 In addition to those hot items, I have listings for PeeWee Herman, vintage Spawn and Marvel figures, and other collectible items. Happy hunting and good luck!
  2. The government agency Screen Queensland announced today that the sequel to the 2021 blockbuster Godzilla Vs Kong is set to shoot in Queensland, Australia. According to Deadline, State Premier Annastacia Palaszczuk said that the movie will begin filming later this year on locations across the Gold Coast and the southeast. No official announcement has been made by Legendary and Warner Bros. but the details for the untitled sequel are being kept under wraps.
  3. The Shin Japan Heroes Universe is coming together with such iconic characters as Godzilla, Ultraman, and Kamen Rider, as well as the world of anime maestro Anno Hideaki’s Evangelion sci-fi franchise from the leading Japanese entertainment firms Toho, Toei, Studio Khara, and Tsuburaya Productions. The core company behind the project is Tsuburaya, the effects production house of Toho (“Godzilla”) and Toei (“Ultraman,” “Kamen Rider”). A starting point for the project was “Shin Godzilla” (translation: “New Godzilla”), the 2016 smash hit live-action film that Anno scripted and co-directed. It was followed by last year’s hit anime “Evangelion: 3.0+1.0 Thrice Upon a Time,” which was also directed by Anno for his Studio Khara anime house as the fourth and final film in the “Rebuild of Evangelion” film franchise. Released in March of last year by Toho and Toei, it became the highest-earning film of 2021 in Japan, with total box office of $92 million. “Shin Ultraman,” a live-action film based on the iconic Ultraman sci-fi TV show will be released on May 13th, 2022. The show comes from Anno scripting and producing and his “Shin Godzilla” co-director Higuchi Shinji directing. Toho will distribute. In March of 2023, will be the release of “Shin Kamen Rider,” which Anno is scripting and directing. Toei is the distributor. Source: Variety
  4. Apple TV+ today announced a series order for a new original live-action series from Legendary's Monsterverse franchise. Following the thunderous battle between Godzilla and the Titans that leveled San Francisco and the shocking new reality that monsters are real, the series explores one family's journey to uncover its buried secrets and a legacy linking them to the secret organization known as Monarch. The untitled Monsterverse series will be produced by Legendary Television and executive produced by co-creators Chris Black Chris Black ("Star Trek: Enterprise," "Outcast"), who will also serve as showrunner, and Matt Fraction ("Hawkeye"), alongside Safehouse Pictures' Joby Harold and Tory Tunnell and Toho Co. Ltd. Hiro Matsuoka and Takemasa Arita will executive produce for Toho. Toho is the owner of the Godzilla character and has licensed the rights to Legendary for this series as a natural byproduct of their long-term relationship on the film franchise. Legendary's Monsterverse is an expansive story universe of multi-layered experiences centering around humanity's battle to survive in a world that is under siege by a catastrophic new reality - the monsters of our myths and legends are real. Beginning in 2014 with "Godzilla" and continuing with 2017's "Kong: Skull Island," 2019's "Godzilla: King of the Monsters," and 2021's "Godzilla vs. Kong," Monsterverse films have accumulated close to two billion dollars globally at the box office and is ever expanding with the latest iteration being a new anime series, "Skull Island." The untitled Monsterverse series will premiere globally on Apple TV+. alongside an expanding offering of sweeping, world-building dramas including upcoming "Wool," based on Hugh Howey's New York Times best-selling trilogy of the same name; "Foundation," based on the award-winning novels by Isaac Asimov, and created by David S. Goyer; "Invasion," a new sci-fi drama series from Academy Award-nominated and two-time Emmy Award-nominated producer Simon Kinberg and David Weil; and post-apocalyptic series "See" starring Jason Momoa, Dave Bautista and Alfre Woodard.
  5. Super7 has some pretty sweet items up on their store for Godzilla day 2021! So burst on over to their site and pick up some sweet merch of everyone's favorite kaiju! Items include: Godzilla ReAction Figure - Shogun (Dark Green) $18 Godzilla ReAction Figure - Shogun (Glow-In-The-Dark) $25 Toho Drinkware - Anatomical Godzilla Toho Drinkware - Anatomical Hedorah Toho Drinkware - Anatomical King Ghidorah Toho Drinkware - Anatomical Mechagodzilla Toho Crewneck Sweatshirt - Godzilla Toho T-Shirt - Mothra Tie Dye Toho Crewneck Sweatshirt - Godzilla Toho T-Shirt - Kaiju Rorschach They also have teased more reactions to come in 2022! "The King of the Monsters won’t be alone for long! More kaiju are on their way- here’s a peek at part of the first full wave of Toho ReAction Figures, coming early ‘22!"
  6. A few days ago, Super7 teased a few new upcoming figures, by only posting their silhouette, and letting our imagination run wild! Who could those be? It's really hard to tell! ToyFarce hired the best toy investigators around (we're on Toy News International now, it's not amateur time anymore!) and we managed to get the scoop for all of you. The first picture shows a shadow of what looks to be a dinosaur. We can see the strangely-shaped dorsal plates, which lead us to think that it could be none other than Reptar, the popular fictional dinosaur from the hit Nickelodeon TV series "Rugrats". This can only mean one thing: Super 7 ULTIMAAAATES! Rugrats figures are coming! ToyFarce speculates that the first wave should have Tommy Pickes, Chuckie Finster, one of the DeVille twins (in usual Super7 fashion, with the second twin released in another wave), and the evil Angelica! The second pic was trickier, but it took ToyFarce's trained eyes only a few minutes to realize that it was a tease for the third wave of Super7 Disney Ultimates! figures, and that that wave will most likely have a Peter Pan theme, with a Peter Pan figure which will come with Tinkerbell as an accessory! The first 2 waves have yet to come out, but we are really looking forward for those. Other possibles figures from that wave would be a dope Captain Hook, Wendy, her 2 brothers coming as a two-pack and why not a Mr. Smee! The third picture was pretty obvious for everyone, but we'll go ahead and say it: It is clearly teasing a (very nice, very evil) Danhausen figure. The pose with 'wings' wide open was in fact a tease of Danhausen signature pose, with his arms holding his cape open wide. Super7 is already making wrestling action figures, with the New Japan Pro Wrestling figures, along with the Major Wrestling Figure Podcast duo of Matt Cardona and Bryan Myers, as well as the Good Brothers, Karl Anderson and Doc Gallows. It is not too farfetched to think that Super7 could do a nice figurehausen of Danhausen to go with the others. What did you think that Super7 was teasing in those pictures? Let us know in the comments! (the funnier, the better!) More news at 11:00-hausen!

  8. What you see is what you're going to get when it comes to the Godzilla vs. Kong release by Warner Bros. and director Adam Wingard. Wingard told Variety that the movie that premieres in theaters and on HBO Max on March 31st is his director's cut and we won't be seeing some three or four hour long, Snyder Cut version just waiting to be released. Wingard is a big believer in keeping his movies clocking in at an efficient two hours instead of larding them up with exposition. When asked if he struggled to keep the film’s running time at two hours, Wingard commented.
  9. Mondo today released this image for an upcoming Godzilla teasing that it would be their biggest collectible done to date. More details are expected to coming on 3/23.
  10. From Warner Bros. Pictures and Legendary Pictures comes the long-awaited face-off between two icons in the epic adventure “Godzilla vs. Kong,” directed by Adam Wingard. Legends collide in “Godzilla vs. Kong” as these mythic adversaries meet in a spectacular battle for the ages, with the fate of the world hanging in the balance. Kong and his protectors undertake a perilous journey to find his true home, and with them is Jia, a young orphaned girl with whom he has formed a unique and powerful bond.

The epic clash between the two titans—instigated by unseen forces—is only the beginning of the mystery that lies deep within the core of the Earth.

  12. Pixel-Dan has posted a second interview with Super7's Brian Flynn, this time with the focus being on the recent Ultimates licenses they announced this week including Godzilla, Power Rangers, Transformers and Silverhawks. In the interview Flynn confirms they can do all the Toho monsters for their Ultimates line except King and Mega-Kong. Also Gamera is off the table because he isn't owned by Toho. Also in the interview Flynn confirms they will be doing both ReAction and 7" Ultimates for the Silverhawks brand. See the whole interview below.
  13. Super7 has announced officially that they will be doing Godzilla based products including 3 3/4" ReAction figures this year and in 2022 7" Ultimates figures. See the press release below: Super7 is excited to collaborate with Toho International, Inc. to bring the King of the Monsters into its world of ReAction figures and more. The debut 3.75" articulated Godzilla ReAction figure is scheduled to arrive this summer, along with a capsule collection, offering various products, including apparel and accessories. More Godzilla product will follow later in the year, escalating in 2022 with ULTIMATES! figures. “It is not a stretch to say that Godzilla may be the most important license to Super7’s history, and one we hold with possibly too much reverence,” said Super7 Founder & Owner, Brian Flynn. “The genesis of Super7 started with Godzilla, and we can’t wait to add that same Super7 love and affection to Godzilla’s future.” Super7 launched in 2001 as a magazine filled with content about collecting vintage Godzilla toys; from Marusan and Bullmark vinyl figures, die-casts and tin toys, to Shogun Warriors, featuring characters from Hedorah and Kamikaras to Rodan and Mothra. The first toy Super7 produced was a grey color variant of the Baremodel 1954 Godzilla, sold through a coupon available only in the first issue of the Super7 magazine in 2001. “It was here that we started with our love for a giant rubber suited reptilian phenomenon,” added Flynn. “Super7 oozes that cool factor in all its products, so we’re thrilled to bring Godzilla into their portfolio of premium products, including the popular ReAction Figures, ULTIMATES! line and more,” said Lora Cohn, Managing Director, Toho International, Inc. “Beyond quality products, Super7 brings so much meaning to Godzilla, with a team deeply passionate about the brand. We’re excited to offer this all-new line of products based on the King of the Monsters, and we think fans can truly feel the passion and love put into them.” ReAction Figures celebrate the iconic action figure of our childhood. The unique size and sculpting style is simple while allowing the imagination to go all in on daily adventures. With ReAction Figures, Super7 continues the classic action figure style while making the figures we wished we had while growing up. Super7’s super articulated ULTIMATES! 7” figures are the premiere fan product. They are made-toorder figures that come with a huge assortment of extra features, making them the most exceptionally intricate expressions of the character that can possibly be made.
  14. Tamashii Nations has released official images for their upcoming Godzilla and King Kong S.H. Figuarts figures based on the upcoming Warner Bros. Godzilla Vs. Kongmovie which will hit theaters and HBO MAX on March 31. Both figures are slated for release in May 2021. King Kong will stand 5.7" tall and include 2 headsculpts, multiple hands and axe weapon. Godzilla will stand 6.2" and has articulated jaw, new wrist articulation, and metallic paint on the fin to pick up the light. Check out images for both and look for them to be made available for pre-order soon. Also here is the trailer for the movie if you missed it from the other day when it debuted.
  15. The year is winding down and with it comes another round of updated visual guides from NECA. This year, they are happy to share 12 Days of Downloads, showing a complete list of releases for some of NECA's longest running lines and adding some newcomers to the fray. For Day 1, they start off with Godzilla. They are so proud of the work we did with this line and are forever grateful for our wonderful partnership with TOHO, allowing them to work on one of the most iconic characters in film history. They also want to thank the fans for supporting our releases over the years. They hope you enjoy the visual guide! Visit the NECA site to download a hi-res version of the Godzilla Visual Guide.
  16. Some images have shown up on Distrito Max giving us a look at what appears to be two new variant Godzilla figures coming from NECA. Shown is a variant of the Godzilla Figure from Godzilla vs Biollante (1989) which is being called Biollante Bile Covered Godzilla and the other is a variant of the Godzilla Figure from Godzilla: Tokyo S.O.S figure which is being called Kiryu’s Blast Attack Godzilla.

  18. NECA has released the final package images for their upcoming Godzilla: Tokyo S.O.S. 12" Head-to-tail 2003 Godzilla action figure which will start shipping out to retailers on July 13.
  19. Godzilla is back with a popular fan favorite, S.H.MonsterArts 2001 Godzilla, mid-heat ray! Fans of the S.H.MonsterArts series will not be disappointed by this completely new and dynamically detailed 6.3" tall sculpt from the capable hands of Japanese sculptor Sakai Yuji. Godzilla, Mothra and King Ghidorah: Giant Monsters All-Out Attack Godzilla was faithfully brought to life in figure form with great care, authentically recreating each defining aspect—from the iconic milky, white eyes to its blue mouth and ice-like matching spine. You can pre-order this figure from our sponsor BigBadToyStore.com.

  24. NECA's Randy Falk sat down with Pixel Dan to talk about Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, Jaws, Defenders of the Earth and more. Some of the key takeaways from the interview include the following: There will be 4 NECA SDCC exclusives offered this year and they are looking to work with some of their retail partners so they will be made available both online and at brick and mortar stores, since the con itself has been canceled. Randy confirmed that a Rocksteady in Bunny Suit figure will be offered in one of the LootCrate bundles, to go with the Bebop in a Bunny Suit, as seen in the classic Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles episode “The Turtles and the Hare”. The Bebop figure is only available when you buy all the 3 Turtle crates as a bundle. The Rocksteady figure should be the one offered in the cartoon based crate, to go along with the Mirage Shredder and recently announced Arcade Electrocuted Turtle figures. For the TMNT movie line coming to Walmart, things start off in June with the Casey Jones and Raph in Disguise 2-pack. Casey's mask is not removable, however they did sculpt an unmasked head. Unfortunately they were not able to get the actors likeness rights in order to release it. After the Casey 2-pack, they will be re-releasing the 4 movie turtle figures in 2-pack form. The only real difference with these Walmart versions and the previous Gamestop ones is, the new Walmart ones will feature additional headbands. There is a Movie FOOT Clan Army Builder Pack coming and they are hoping to be able to include the weapons rack previously released in last years SDCC exclusive set. Beyond that Randy said they have two more 2-packs for the first movie coming to Walmart as well as some type of movie accessory pack. Then of course they also have the TMNT II The Secret Of The Ooze Super Shredder deluxe figure and Tokka & Rahza 2-pack. The Tokka and Rahza 2-pack will cost more than their other 2-packs and likely cost around $60, as opposed to $50. For the Target exclusive TMNT animated series line, Randy said wave 3 will be shipping soon and wave 4 will soon follow after that. By the end of the year Randy expects that they will have released around 40 different animated series figures. Randy said they are looking to release the TMNT animated series diorama that was on display at Toy Fair. Originally they were looking to first make it available during SDCC this year. Now it will likely be offered as a specialty store item with hopes of getting it out by end of year. Sometime after series 5 gets released. While NO where near being confirmed at this time of being able to happen, Randy said they had been doing some design work on possibly doing a Animated Series Sewer Lair diorama. The idea would be that it would attach to the building diorama so you would have the building above ground and the lair under the street. They have also been looking at ways of possibly doing a Party Wagon van vehicle. Randy goes on to say that they have a big expensive Turtle item coming to Target which is set to be released in mid-november, just in time for the holidays. This item is going to cost around $100. If that item sells well, it should help open the door to being able to do other things like the Sewer Lair and Party Wagon. Randy also indicated they really want to do a Usagi Yojimbo figure for the Turtles line, but that some additional negotiations still need to happen first. The Usagi character is controlled by it's creator Stan Sakai, so they need his blessing as well as Nickelodeons to make that figure happen, which Randy doesn't foresee being a problem. Randy also teased the possibility of doing characters like Napoleon Bonafrog and his entire clan. More quarter scale figures are coming as well. For the movie look for Splinter and Casey Jones to be released some time in 2021. Randy said they also plan on doing animated versions of the 4 turtles, with the idea that each will come with interchangeable facial expressions. Outside of Turtles Randy talked about things like how they have been working on a huge 30" Jaws shark figure which will feature a diorama base and articulated jaw and fins. Because of the size and cost, they may end up looking to crowdsourcing to get it released. Randy said they have a couple more Godzilla figures coming, but then after that the line will likely go on hiatus due to there being a new master toy license holder for the property. I don't think we should expect any Kong vs Godzilla products from NECA. The newly announced 7" scale Defenders of the Earth line likely won't be released until 2021. Randy hopes that either Target or Walmart will carry these figures. The plan is to release Flash Gordon, Ming the Merciless and The Phantom first, followed by Mandrake the Magician and Lothar. Other figures have been sculpted for the line which they also plan on releasing. If the line does well then they may look to expand it and do figures based on the Flash Gordon comics and animated series. Randy finished up by saying they people should look for more NECA product in general being available in more Walmart stores by September.
