  1. Back in September it was announced that a number of companies including Funko and McFarlane Toys would be producing products for Critical Role, which started as a live-streamed tabletop Dungeons & Dragons like gaming show done by a group of professional voice-over actors who are friends. Since its debut, it has evolved into a full-fledged digital media company with multiple shows, podcasts, comic books and live performances. They even recently complete a successful Kickstarter to produce a high-end animated special called Critical Role: The Legend of Vox Machina. The goal for the Kickstarter was $750,000, and they brought in $11,385,449 with 88,887 backers. Images of the first McFarlane Toys figure for this property has surfaced online. The figure is of the character known as Mollymauk Tealeaf, and is said to be 12" in height. If you are a fan of this property and want to check out the figure, click here.
  2. A few folks have written in with listings that we are told showed up in the EBGames system for upcoming new 7" DC Multiverse figures from McFarlane Toys. While we have confirmed some of these figures with additional sources, we have not been able to confirm them all. It should also be noted that McFarlane Toys has not yet confirmed any of these figures. -DC 7IN Dawn Breaker - 08/28/20 -DC 7IN Devastator - 08/28/20 -DC 7IN Flashpoint Batman - 08/28/20 -DC 7IN Grim Knight - 08/28/20 -DC 7IN Modern Flash - 10/16/20 -DC 7IN Modern Joker - 10/16/20 -DC 7IN Muder Machine - 08/28/20 -DC 7IN Red Death - 08/28/20 -DC 7IN Red Hood - 10/16/20 -DC 7IN Vehicle & Fig - 09/25/20 -DC 7IN W1 15346 - 05/01/20 -DC 7IN W1 15347 - 05/01/20 -DC 7IN W2 15006 - 07/17/20 -DC 7IN W2 15122 - 05/01/20 We should not all the figures listed here seem to be regular priced figures. Even Devastator has the same price as the other figures. The vehicle and figure set looks like is going to cost around $50. Again none of these have been officially confirmed by McFarlane Toys, so do treat these as rumor at this time. Thanks to KNR for the heads up.
  3. Early in the year when I interviewed Todd McFarlane, he indicated that The Witcher video game license was one his company was pursing for his action figure company McFarlane Toys. Well now thanks to some new listings that have shown up from an overseas etailer, it looks like he was successful in getting it. The website Sukipan.com is listing 4 different action figures. Two 7" figures, one of The WItcher and one of Eredin Bréacc Glas. There is also a 12" version of the Witcher listed and some type of Walmart exclusive. There is no reference image for the Walmart one, but it is listed as a 7" figure. I don't know how it will differ from the other 7" one. According to the etailer, the figures will be out in October of this year. Of course until McFarlane officially announces these, we will treat this as a rumor at this time.
  4. We first saw these figures on display back in February during Toy Fair. Now via Previews magazine we have some updated images for the third wave of the McFarlane Toys 7" Mortal Kombat XI line which includes figures of Baraka and Kitana. These figures should be available for pre-order soon and I imagine more official images will also be released soon.
  5. Today I take a look at the new Batman: Curse of the White Knight DC Multiverse Azrael figure from McFarlane Toys. You can purchase this figure from our sponsor BigBadToyStore.com. Check out images for this figure below and be sure to share your own thoughts about it.
  6. Back in early February we first got wind of a blue variant of the McFarlane Toys DC Multiverse 7" Batman: The Animated Series figure coming when it started showing up overseas. Well it took awhile but the figure has finally started to see release here in the United States. While it's not entirely clear if the figure is being released as a Target store exclusive, that is the place to go to find it right now. Thanks to everyone who wrote in about it.
  7. McFarlane Toys has released official details and images for their The Original SPAWN Action Figure Kickstarter which launches later today. The figure will be 7" and have double the articulation as the original figure released back in the 90's, and will include a folding cape. Read on for full details and images below: 0588906abbe192fcdff19a1312c15517_h264_high.mp4
  8. For those who missed out on getting their hands on the McFarlane Toys 7" Mortal Kombat 11 figure the first time, you are going to get another chance at it. However there is going to be one minor change made to the figure with the second run. The original batch of figures released featured the character with a sword, and the new figures will feature a mace. Images of the new weapons have yet to be released, but if it is accurate then it likely will be the war club you see him use in the game. You can pre-order the Spawn figure from our sponsor BigBadToyStore.com now, though right now they are still listing the sword coming with the figure, expect that to change soon.
  9. Back in February McFarlane Toys surprised us by announcing they would be doing figures based on Warhammer. They even showed us during Toy Fair their upcoming Space Marine figure. Well now it looks like a second figure is in the works based on this property with the Necron Warrior. Even though we have yet to get official images and details for the Space Marine figure shown at Toy Fair, we do have that info for this new figure. Beneath the skin of the galaxy lurks the eldritch menace known as the Necrons. Having long ago made a devil’s bargain to swap the frailties of flesh for undying metal, they now stir to murderous wakefulness on worlds uncounted after millions of years of slumber, and seek to reclaim the stars from those who have usurped them. Though they have the nigh-indestructible bodies of killer machines, the Necrons possess a macabre and captivating character, and their armies are many and varied. Whether it be a council of haughty Overlords and genius Crypteks fighting to outdo one another, a relentless phalanx of android warriors, a fast-moving swarm of Canoptek constructs, or an entire dynasty ready for war, no other army can match the resilience and sophisticated weaponry of the Necrons on the battlefield. The figure is due out later this Fall and will include Gauss Flayer, Canoptek Scarab, and base. Check out official images for the Necron Warrior below.
  10. If you are a fan of Todd McFarlane's Spawn character, then you probably know about the recent Kickstarter he held for a new 7" Remastered Original Spawn action figure based on the original 5" one released back in 1995. The Kickstater which had an original funding goal of $100,000 ended up with 23,761 backers and a total pledged amount of $3,447,390. All-in-all a fairly huge success for the comic book artist. Of course that first Spawn figure wasn't the only one released back in 1995. It was one of 6 figures released in the first wave that Todd used to help launch his toy company McFarlane Toys. When Todd first announced the plans for his Kickstarter during Toy Fair in February, he said that if it was successful he would look to do something similar for the other 5 figures from that first 1995 wave. Besides the original Spawn figure the wave also included figures of Violator, Overtkill, Tremor, Clown and Medieval Spawn. Since it seems pretty clear the first Kickstarter was a success, I can only assume that another one for another wave 1 figure will eventually be launched. However which figure will get the modern treatment remains unkown. I've decided to rank the remaining 5 figures from that first 1995 wave in order of least to most I would like see get the modern figure treatment. Of course feel free to leave your own thoughts in the COMMENT SECTION of which figure you want to see next. 5) Medieval Spawn Being we just got a Spawn figure, I would rather see this variant version of the lead character held back for a later release. It's a cool looking figure, but probably my least favorite of the original 6. 4) Tremor Only being a casual Spawn fan, I would say Tremor is probably the least known character to me from series 1. Despite looking cool, that lack of familiarity has me putting him at number 4. 3) Violator I almost feel like Violator and Clown should be released as a two-pack, but if I had to pick one over the other, I would rather see the Clown version done as a modern figure before Violator. 2) Clown Being Spawn's most notable nemesis, I can see Clown coming in at number 1 for a lot of people. I definitely would love to see a highly detailed and fairly well articulated 7" Clown figure produced by McFarlane, but from a personal standpoint he is not my favorite character. Because of that I have Clown coming in at number 2. 1) Overtkill My number 1 pick, and my favorite character from the first wave of 1995 Spawn figures is Overtkill, or as I know him better as, Over Kill. You see my first exposure for this guy doesn't actually come from the Spawn comic books, it comes from an old VHS video series called "The Comic Book Greats". As a kid I always wanted to draw, unfortunately I was never really talented enough to do it well. Still I enjoyed watching tutorials from great comic book artists. Back in 1991 the great Stan Lee launched a new series on VHS called "The Comic Book Greats" where he would interview well known artists and writers of the time. The first episode featured Todd McFarlane who of course had become an artist sensation at Marvel. During that episode the two sat down and mapped out from scratch the creation of a brand new never-before-seen character they called Over Kill. I still have that VHS tape somewhere. Later on Todd would rename that character Overtkill and insert him into his new Spawn universe at Image Comics. Because of that Stan Lee video series, Overtkill has always been a favorite of mine and I would love to see a modern articulated 7" figure of him created. If they do him I will definitely be buying one.
  11. We first saw these new 7" DC Multiverse figures of Batman, Joker and Azrael based on the White Knight comic book storyline back during Toy Fair in February. Now McFarlane Toys has released official images and details for the figures which you can check out below. The figures are due out later this summer. Azrael: Batman: Curse of the White Knight #1 (Comics 2019) War veteran, knight of the Order of St. Dumas, and now The Joker’s key recruit in the crusade against Batman— Azrael is the Dark Knight’s most powerful new threat, and the one living link to a devastating secret about the Wayne family’s legacy in Gotham City. Azrael accessories include sword with removable flames, and base. The figure also includes a collectable art card with Azrael from Batman: Curse of the White Knight artwork on the front, and character biography on the back. Batman: White Knight #1 (Comics 2017) After years of epic battles between the Dark Knight and his twisted archenemy, Batman faces his greatest challenge yet: The Joker has been cured of his madness and is now sane. The Clown Prince of Crime has changed his ways, fighting for good in Gotham City, and it may just cause Batman to go over the edge of his own sanity. Batman accessories include Grapnel Launcher, Batarang with line, wrapped Batarang with line, and base. The figure also includes a collectable art card with Batman: White Knight artwork on the front, and character biography on the back. The Joker: Batman: White Knight #8 (Comics 2017) Once the Clown Prince of Crime and Batman’s greatest Super-Villain, The Joker has been cured of his madness. Now, going by the name of Jack Napier, he’s been released from Arkham Asylum and has set his sights on politics—with hopes to save Gotham City from the one person he sees as its true enemy: Batman. The Joker accessories include long nose blaster, alternate Jack Napier head, and base. The figure will also include a collectable art card with The Joker from Batman: White Knight artwork on the front, and character biography on the back.
  12. While not a lot of specific details have been made available, McFarlane Toys has announced that they have obtained the rights to make product based on the upcoming Denis Villeneuve’s Dune movie coming in December from Warner Bros. What is not entirely clear is if McFarlane can, or has any plans to also release product based on the original 1984 movie. Even if the license allows them to make product based on the original Dune movie, my guess they will primarily focus on the new one. At least starting out. We will update this story when more details become available.
  13. Todd McFarlane recently posted on Instagram this image stating he wanted to do a Batman figure based on his own artwork, featuring the big cape. Recently DC Direct did one of their Black And White statues bases on that look for the Dark Knight. And of course Todd's own company McFarlane Toys now holds the rights for doing DC Comic based action figures with their 7" DC Multiverse line. So doing McFarlane art style action figures seems like a no brainier, especially for Batman which is the character the big box retailers seem most interested in seeing on their shelves. Now if or when McFarlane ends up doing a McFarlane style Batman figure, the big question is how would they work the cape? When I first saw the cape being used on the Spawn Kickstarter action figure at Toy Fair back in February, my first thought was how that would be perfect for a McFarlane stye Batman figure. The cape is plastic with articulated hinge joints on it, so you can fold the ends of it in or outward. This will work great for some poses, but the down side for a cape of this type is that it will likely be heavy, making the figure more difficult to pose in certain positions. Another option and perhaps the better one would be a soft-goods cape with wires in it. I've seen some companies try this with their figures, and it didn't seem to work so well. However this is a route Medicom seems to be going in with their MAFEX figures, and while I've yet to get any of those in-hand, based on images they seem to look pretty good. So let us know in the comments, do you want to see McFarlane art style DC Comic figures done for the Multiverse line, and how should they work the cape on characters like Batman?
  14. Shown below via TheBlackHoleFan are some nice in-hand figure images for the McFarlane Toys DC Multiverse regular Wonder Woman and gold outfit Wonder Woman figures based on the upcoming WW84 movie. These have started hitting shelves now. You can pre-order them from our sponsor BigBadToyStore.com.
  15. Todd McFarlane himself has released new official images for the upcoming 7" articulated Mortal Kombat Spawn figure from McFarlane Toys which will have 22 points of articulation and be out in March.
  16. Did Todd McFarlane just prove that the big box retailer is now obsolete when it comes to the world of action figures? Todd McFarlane is largely attributed as the person who created the action figure collecting demographic in this country in the early 90’s, when he launched his little toy company now known as McFarlane Toys. A toy company that gained notoriety, not by making cheap toys for young kids, but by delivering highly detailed pieces of art in the form of an action figure. Something that would attract consumers both young and old. He proved that there was profit to be had for toys other than just catering to the now shrinking demographic of young kids and the parents who buy them. Even the larger toy corporations like Hasbro and Mattel eventually started to follow his lead to make stuff that was geared more towards the adult action figure collector. Back then, there were a lot more options for these toy companies to sell their products. No longer was the selling of action figures just confined to the likes of Toys R’ Us and other toy-specific shops. Now you could find toys at various music and video retail stores, even in comic and specialty shops which were a growing and thriving business in the early 90’s. Since those early days, the retail landscape has changed drastically. Most music and video stores are all but extinct, as are most toy-specific stores. Even video game stores seem to be on their last legs these days. Comic shops also have taken huge hits over the years, calling into question their chances of long-term survival. Beyond a few smaller etailers, that really only leaves the big-box retailers like Walmart, Target and a few others to sell these things — meaning they dictate what gets made, how it gets made and what doesn’t get made at all. These big-box retailers, and the demands they appear to place on the toy manufacturers, contribute to the biggest complaints most collectors have when it comes to collecting action figures. Cheap quality to keep the price down, the same big-name characters rehashed over and over, hard to find store exclusives, and limited availability of the things people actually want. To me it comes down to this. Because the manufacturers have so few options where they can sell their products these days, they have no choice but to abide by the demands that the big box retailers place on them. Perhaps that is about to change though, and the path to that change may be led by the same man who helped create the action figure collecting market all those years ago. Yesterday, Todd McFarlane launched his very first crowd-sourcing Kickstarter campaign for a newly designed Spawn figure. A figure that pays tribute to the very first Spawn figure he did in the 90s. The Kickstarter has a funding goal of $100,000 over the course of 30 days. In just under 12 minutes of the Kickstarter going live yesterday, the figure surpassed that $100,000 goal. As I type this, the Kickstarter, which has been live for less than 24 hours, has obtained $716,034 in funding. Now McFarlane isn’t the first person to look to something like Kickstarter to sell an action figure. He isn’t even the first major toy company to do it. In recent years, Hasbro launched their own crowdfunding website and sold several large and expensive type items straight to the consumer through it. Mattel tried their own variation of this concept for Masters of the Universe through their MattyCollector website, which lasted a number of years. Had Mattel put more emphasis on the customer service end of that operation, it probably would have been even more successful than it was. Still when it comes to the world of action figures, I don’t think I have seen anyone have quite as much success with a crowdsourcing campaign as McFarlane seems to be having with his first. It really makes me wonder what this could mean for the future of how action figures targeted to the adult collector are sold. McFarlane himself has already touted if this first campaign was successful, it would allow him to get more of what collectors want into their hands by circumventing the big box stores. Of course, until the final product is actually delivered into the hands of the consumer, it is hard to say how successful this will really be, but it definitely gives me some hope for the future of the hobby.
  17. Walmart has up for actual pre-order on their website the McFarlane Toys 7" DC Multiverse Arkham video game Batman and Joker figures which they list with a May 12 release date. Both of these figures were on display this past February during the New York Toy Fair. You can check out images of the figures below.
  18. Earlier this month we broke the news that McFarlane Toys would be doing new 7" articulated Spawn figures this year, and now we have gotten word via the latest Diamond Distributor Previews solicitations that the first one of those figures seems to be coming in their Mortal Kombat 11 line. For those not familiar with the game, starting on March 17, 2020 players will be able to select Spawn as one of the characters they can choose to fight with. See the teaser trailer for the game which features Spawn below. With McFarlane Toys having the license to do Mortal Kombat 11 action figures and with Spawn being featured in the game, I guess it should come as no surprise that we will be getting a Mortal Kombat 11 version of Spawn in action figure form. The Previews solicitation unfortunately does not include any images of the figure, but my guess is we will see it on display next month during Toy Fair which kicks off on February 22.
  19. Unparalleled Universe was on hand this weekend at the New York Toy Fair and got a hands-on look at the upcoming Mortal Kombat 11 Spawn 7" action figure from McFarlane Toys that will be released in March.
