  1. Good day, hope you watch my action figure review of the awesome articulated MAFEX Psylocke action figure
  2. First things first, ToyFarce and Toy News International hope you all had a merry christmas and happy holidays. We are now in that period between Christmas and New Year's Eve when everything is kind of a blur. What day is it? Did I shower today? Who knows?! Unfortunately for some collectors, we have received lots of messages about Christmas disappointments. One of the messages that we felt the most for was from Ryan, a fellow toy collector who wanted a MAFEX Avengers: Endgame Iron Spider... only to see Santa bring him a S.H. Figuarts Avengers: Endgame Iron Spider. His reaction below: "I wrote it very clearly on my letter to Santa! I wanted the MAFEX one, not the S.H.Figuarts one! This is B.S.! All my other MCU figures are from MAFEX, so I obviously cannot display the S.H. Figuarts with them! And I'm gonna have to buy all the other S.H.Figuarts figures from the MCU since I got this one... There's no other way, now. Not cool, Santa. Not cool!" As long as Santa didn't manage to confuse a Hot Toys figure with a Funko Pop one, we should be good. How about you? Did you get anything you didn't order from Santa? Let us know in the comments! More news at 11:00... "Not cool, Santa. Not cool!" *ToyFarce News is parody news for laughs and not meant to be taken seriously!
  3. It's Wednesday and you know what that means... ToyFarce review! This week, we're looking at the brand new Joker figure from the Batman: Hush line from MAFEX. This is the 5th figure in that line (6th if you count the Batman black repaint). As usual, MAFEX did an excellent work in bringing the character from the comic book in figure form. This figure blew away my expectations, actually. As much as I love Jim Lee's art (and I have tattoos from his work on my body), his Joker has never been my favorite representation of him. Add to that the DC Direct Batman: Hush figure of Joker looked really bad, so I expected this figure to be the one I would like the least. Well, it turns out it's an awesome figure! It comes with 2 stellar headsculpts, 5 extra sets of hands and a knife. As expected, no guns, since MAFEX had warned long ago about it not coming with guns due to the Warner decision to keep away from guns in their products. The shade of purple of his suit was also rectified to be darker than in the initial promo shots, which looks great. Articulation-wise, it's the usual MAFEX product, unfortunately no thigh or biceps swivel, which hinders it a little, but since it's not a Spider-man figure and doesn't need to do any gymnast posts, that will do. Of course, it would have been nice to have the prop gun with the flag to recreate "that" scene from the comic book, but we can always use guns from other figures, any third-party ones or even 3D print them if you know what you're doing - "What are you doing? - I'm printing a gun, mum!". Those are weird times, indeed. The next ones in this line should be Harley Quinn in April 2022, Batman with the Stealth Jumper suit in June and Huntress in August, unless there are any (more) delays from MAFEX. More news at 11:00... "Stop me if you've heard this one before, Batsy..."
  4. It's Wednesday and you know what that means... ToyFarce review! This week, we're looking at the brand new Batman figure from the New Adventures of Batman animated series, by MAFEX. Batman the Animated Series holds a special place in my heart, and I have loved all the Kenner figures that we got in the 90's, all the DC Collectibles/Direct figures that we had in the last decade, so when MAFEX announced that they would be tacking the Animated Series, I was overjoyed. Well, that is until I saw that they decided to kickstart the line with the New Adventures design, which are not as iconic than the original Animated Series, but still very Bruce Timm-esque. The DC Collectibles line did start with that one too, and we saw how far they went, so there is hope! The box is the usual MAFEX box type, with a window at the front showing the figure and all the accessories, and using a blue color, which is often used with promo art for the New Adventures series. I've read many comments about collectors being disappointed they didn't use the iconic red color, but that is for the Animated Series, and not the New Adventures. Even Kenner and DC Collectibles had blue cards for those. The figure is another very decent, brilliantly articulated offering like only MAFEX and other 'imports' brands can offer, but without being too much in order not to ruin the general aesthetic of the figure. A thigh swivel for example, would have kinda ruined the legs with a straight line right in the middle, even if it seems to be everything a collector asks for in a figure these days. Batman comes with 2 capes (one in rigid rubbery plastic that covers his shoulders, for those nice static poses, and a soft goods cape which allows for more posing), an unmasked Bruce Wayne headsculpt (wait... Bruce Wayne is Batman??), 4 extra pairs of hands, a batarang and a grapnel launcher, in action, with a metal rod to keep it always straight. Unfortunately, the rod cannot be removed to have the grapnel launcher 'not in action', but we'll get over that. Overall, this figure is far superior to the DC Collectibles one. Better articulations, more possibilities... The legs might be a bit too thin and I've seen some collectors have already broken a foot, but that is (unfortunately?) how Bruce Timm designed those characters, so we can expect more figures looking like that. We'll just have to be gentle with them! Not looking forward to the female characters, which were already very tiny and brittle on the DC Collectibles line... The New Adventures Joker is expected to join the Bat in July next year (or later, as delays are a tradition at MAFEX), and we're hoping for more announcement in between. More news at 11:00... I am vengance, I am the night... I am Batman!
