  1. Look, I know DC toys have been the subject of hot debate for years now, and McFarlane is no stranger to judgment either, but I can’t be the only one extremely excited by the fact that they’re making D.C. figures right? Sure, they’ve had their issues in the past, and at this point in time, it feels like D.C. is a piece of Mattel and vice-versa, but I for one and more than ready for change. I know a lot of people are upset because it seemed like D.C. was finally coming into their element, and those people will probably be very apprehensive to even buying a McFarlane made product. But the strides the company has made in the last year can not be understated. Their fortnite figures are great, their Naruto and one Punch Man figures are great, I for one adore their game of thrones stuff, despite being made prior to the change to full articulation. And I’m super excited for their other upcoming lines like My Hero Academia and Harry Potter. I know that some people are apprehensive about the possibility that they will be 7” scale figures. To be clear, that info came from an unknown source and has no reason to be trusted, but let me defend this decision as best as I can: A.) This isn’t Mattel. This isn’t Hasbro. This is McFarlane. Not only is 7” the companies bread and butter, but they aren’t beholden to their competitors. They don’t need to attempt to make figures in the same style or scale as them. I know that most adult collectors have a preferred scale of 6 inches, but let’s not be blind to the fact that NECA toys, though not as big of a player as Mattel or Hasbro, is a collectors favorite company who makes purely 7” scale figures. and B.) They might not be true 7” scale. If the rumors and leaks are to be at all believed, and I don’t believe they should be just yet, then the 7” scale described might not be what we think. To explain myself, despite the fact that their stranger Things figures, their fortnite figures, and their Harry Potter figures are 7” scale and true, their Call of Duty figures are marketed as a 7” scale line. Now, I don’t know how many out there have bought any figures from the line, but they aren’t 7 inches. Look at them compared to these marvel legends (picture from the fwoosh’s review). Sure, legends are a bit larger than a true 6” line, but barely. So there’s a chance they fit in with 6” stuff after all. with that being said, I welcome the line with open arms, if not for the very least that it’s something different. It’s a shift in the current layout of the industry, I’m excited to see what it is we get.
  2. Website Mephitsu.uk has posted an “official press release” from McFarlane Toys concerning their DC Comics action figure line. The line will be called DC Ultra Collection. The figures are confirmed as 7 inch. They include comic book, animated and movie figures. Each figure is listed as an "Ultra release", and they will come in a collectors window box. Also included in the pack are a stand and a cardboard display backing piece. Movie Harley Quinn (Suicide Squad) Comic Harley Quinn Armoured Super-Man Animated Super-Man Comic Super-Man Comic Nightwing Animated Green Lantern Comic The Batman Who Laughs Comic Batman Animated Batman Comic Hellbat Comic Bat Girl Arrow (we assume by the image an Arrowverse TV Arrow)
  3. We're still blazing at SDCC 2019 with McFarlane Toys Images from Preview Night just up! First images of the new Mortal Kombat 11 Scorpion and Sub-Zero. figures are shown here. Still no sign of DC Comics figures.
  4. Well we have been wondering what would happen with DC Collector oriented action figures once the news broke last month that Spin Master was taking over a large chunk of the DC license in 2020. Would Mattel continue on with things like DC Multiverse in conjunction with Spin Master doing the more kid-friendly oriented stuff??? The answer seems to be no because today via IGN, McFarlane Toys has announced they have entered into a licensing agreement with Warner Bros to do 6"-12" ultra-posable action figures based on the DC Comics library of characters. Now this doesn't necessarily exclude Mattel from continuing their own figures, and Mattel has yet to make any kind of formal announcement about this, but I think the writing is on the wall now. McFarlane Toys figures generally are not known for articulation, however if you have checked out their recent Fortnite figures (see a review here), then you know the company has been making improvements on that front so we will have to see how they do on that front, and will Todd McFalrane, the man behind the company who is a comic book artist great, how much influence will he have on the actual designs? Would Todd McFarlane inspired DC figures interest you? McFarlane won't be taking over until 2020 so don't expect any reveals from them this year at Toy Fair on the DC front, but SDCC will probably be an interesting time for DC fans. We will be interviewing Todd himself this weekend so you better believe this will be topic of discussion #1 for us when we do.

  19. According to IGN, Todd McFarlane told them this past weekend during the New York Comic Con that he plans on bringing back his classic movie and monster action figure lines known as Movie Maniacs and Clive Barker's Tortured Souls, with an emphasis on direct to consumer sales. Something we have seen more and more companies do in recent years as retail shelf space for action figures gets smaller and smaller. There is no denying that McFarlane was one of the original pioneers of the "Adult Action Figure Collector" market here in the United States when he started his company McFalrane Toys back in the 90's, making figures for adults as opposed for kids. In recent years however McFarlane has in large part moved away from that demographic, concentrating more on big license name brands in order to gain a larger presence on the shelves of big box retailers such as Target and Walmart. Licenses such as Halo, NBA, MLB and Rick & Morty, even creating a new line of building block toys in order to try and compete with the likes of LEGO. During that same time, other companies such as NECA and Mezco have worked hard to fill that void left open by McFarlane, creating figures based on horror icons such as Jason, Freddy and Chucky, as well as Aliens and Predator. In fact I think many would argue that NECA not only filled that void but surpassed McFarlane by providing consumers with action figures that not only featured highly detailed sculpts and paints, but also had decent articulation. Something most McFarlane figures sorely lack even to this day, and something Todd himself has been very reluctant to incorporate into his products. So the question that is begged to be asked, do we really need Movie Maniacs anymore? Can McFarlane really make a comeback in niche market that he once helped create, or have his competitors far surpassed him to the point of no return? See images for some of McFarlane's older Movie Maniac figures below and let us know what you think in the comments section.
  20. McFarlane Toys partners with HBOs hit television series Game of Thrones to bring you highly detailed 6" figures of iconic characters, each coming with screen accurate accessories. Look for Jon Snow, Daenerys Targaryen, Night King & Arya Stark. Jon Snow, born Aegon Targaryen, is the son of Lyanna Stark and Rhaegar Targaryen, the late Prince of Dragonstone. A decorated individual, Jon has been chosen as Lord Commander of the Night’s Watch, and helped lead a successful raid in overtaking Winterfell from House Bolton, restoring House Stark’s reign over the North, in which Jon was proclaimed “King of the North.” Queen Daenerys Targaryen, is the younger sister of Rhaegar and Viserys Targaryen and only daughter of King Aerys II Targaryen and Queen Rhaella Targaryen, who were both ousted from the Iron Throne during Robert Baratheon’s rebellion. Among the most popular characters on the show, Daenerys is also the “Mother of Dragons,” having rule over Drogon, Viserion, and Rhaegal. The Night King is the master and the first of the White Walkers, having existed since the age of the First Men. He also serves as the supreme leader of the Army of the Dead. “The true enemy won’t wait out the storm. He brings the storm.” - Jon Snow (about the Night King) Arya Stark is the third child and second daughter of Lord Eddard Stark and his wife, Lady Catelyn Stark. After narrowly escaping the persecution of House Stark by House Lannister, Arya is trained as a Faceless Man at the House of Black and White in Braavos. She uses her new skills to bring those who have wronged her family to justice. You can pre-order these now at BigBadToyStore.com.
