  1. It's Wednesday, and you know what that means: ToyFarce review! This week, we're having a look at the different TMNT: The Last Ronin figures from NECA (so far!). It's the last week of the NECA Haulathon, so we'll finish it with a bang by checking one of the actual Haulathon offerings, the Rogue Derelict version of the Last Ronin. The 'Armored' and 'Unarmored' versions of that figure were released in January, but were also on my pile of unopened toys, so... 3 turtles with one stone? First of all, TMNT: The Last Ronin is an excellent TMNT comic book. Kevin Eastman and Peter Laird reunited to give us a great story in a future, battle-ravaged New York City, where the last remaining of the Ninja Turtles seeks justice for his family (I will try not to spoil it for those who haven't read it). The box art of the figures are reminiscent of the comic book art, with the black and red colors heavily used, just like some of the covers. The figures come packed with accessories. These are some of the best figures NECA has released this year so far (and they came out in January!). The Armored version comes with a ton of accessories: An extra head sculpt and 2 bandana parts, 4 extra hands, a pair of googles, a grappling hook, a smoke bomb, 4 shurikens, a tonfa (or baton), and of course, the 4 weapons of the brothers: a katana, a bo staff, a sai and a pair of nunchucks. Most of the weapons can be attached on the figure, like in the comic book, which is great. The hood attached to the head is removable and can be replaced by one of the 2 bandana parts (flat or in the wind). The figure has decent enough articulations, even if bulky. It just looks really awesome. I can't really say anything bad about it! The Unarmored figure comes with an extra head sculpt, 5 extra hands, a broken katana, a sai, a pair of nunchucks, a tonfa (or baton), 4 throwing knives, Splinter's journal and a mouser. The figure itself looks great, with textures that remind of the original Mirage comics. This turtle has been through things, there are lots of scars on its skin and shell. This is the saddest figure of all 3 also, with a very sad facial expression, the broken katana and Splinter's journal... The NECA Target Haulathon Rogue Derelict figure is pretty much the exact same figure as the Armored one, but with a red and black coat of paint, as a lot of the covers of the comic book predominantly used red and black colors. He comes with the same accessories as the Armored one: An extra head sculpt and 2 bandana parts, 4 extra hands, a pair of googles, a grappling hook, a smoke bomb, 4 shurikens, a tonfa (or baton), and of course, the 4 weapons of the brothers: a katana, a bo staff, a sai and a pair of nunchucks, but all those accessories are also painted red and black. I wasn't sure if I would get it at first, but after seeing a few pictures online, I had to, it just looks too good. The paint on it is amazing, and the white highlights make for a nice contrast. NECA revealed a few more figures are coming on their checklists during their 12 days of downloads at the end of last year, so I'm looking forward for more! Bonus: Playmates also did a Last Ronin figure, which is a great mashup of old action figure design with the Last Ronin suit. Not sure yet if i will open it, but thought that I would add it here. More news at 11:00... "No more talking."
  2. It's Wednesday, and you know what that means: ToyFarce review! This week, we're having a look at the first two Universal Monsters Accessory sets from NECA, for Frankenstein and The Mummy. Continuing the NECA month, I had those accessory sets on my pile of unopened toys for a while, and it was time to set them free. They come with a cardboard background and end up being pretty great little dioramas. The Universal Monsters Frankenstein Accessory set comes with Dr. Frankenstein laboratory table, a laboratory cardboard background, a plastic towel to add to it, a piece of white cloth, an alternate bandaged head for the Frankenstein's monster and a flaming torch to scare it (Frankenstein's Monster figure not included). The box art on those accessory sets looks gorgeous, as usual with NECA. I had heard that the table cannot be undone once assembled, and that is very true, the pieces snap together and you'd need to break it in pieces if you want to store it back in the box. It's a pretty great looking table, though! The table and the laboratory background make for a decent diorama, and the extra accessories add nicely to your Frankenstein's Monster figure. The Mummy Accessory set is pretty great too, as it includes the long awaited sarcophagus, an Egyptian themed background, and a chest (The Mummy figure not included). When I got the Mummy figure, I kinda wished it came with a sarcophagus, since it had been teased on the pictures... Well, that's how you sell people an extra accessory set! The sarcophagus looks really great, with tons of details in the paint apps. The chest can open in order to store the smaller Egyptian chest that came with the Mummy figure (which hid a scroll). The Dracula Accessory set is already out (and on its way!), along with Carfax Abbey version of the Dracula figure (black and white). I'm looking forward to check those out too! More news at 11:00... It's alive... ALIIIIVE!
  3. NECA is doing another round of TMNT figure offerings through LootCrate starting off with a 7" movie figure based on the Danny Pennington. Like last year they will be doing a total of 4 sets and if you get all 4 sets then you will have access to some kind of BONUS figure which has yet to be revealed. If like last year each of the 4 sets will focus on Movie, Cartoon, Comic and Video Game. CLICK HERE for pre-order details. UPDATE: According to NECA, the 4 Crates and the bonus figure will breakdown as follows: Crate 2 is arcade-themed and comes with a NECA exclusive Armaggon figure. Crate 3 is themed after the comic books and includes a menacing Mutant Shredder exclusive figure. Crate 4 will be themed after the cartoons with an exclusive Donatello the Dark Turtle figure. Order all 4 and get a totally tubular Scrag bonus figure from the cartoon. (Supplies are limited.) Scrag was a human character who was part of Bebop and Rocksteady's gang before they were mutated. Armaggon will probably be the coolest of the figures as he is a mutant shark and an antagonist of the Turtles, who has designs on conquering the world. Crate 1: ships in August, Crate 2: ships in September, Crate 3: ships in October, Crate 4: ships in November. Each crate will cost $49.99.
  4. Both Target's NECA Haulathon and Walmart's Collector Con are currently ongoing, with new items being revealed every week (or all at once, the first day if you work in a Target "lol"), and collectors in the USA are refreshing the Target and Walmart webpages, along with yours truly, Toy News International, to see the latest news and figures revealed! One collector, though, managed to stay oblivious about both events, thinking that the names 'Haulathon' and 'Collector Con' that everybody seems to mention these days were none other than new Transformers characters... "It's an honest mistake..." said William, 36. "I heard some collectors mention the NECA Haulathon, but I thought they were saying 'Mega Haulathon', which, to be fair, kinda sounds like a Transformer name, some sort of moving truck, like a U-haul, that turns into a robot. That would make complete sense! Since I don't collect Transformers, I ignored that for a bit. Then another collector said that there would be a Walmart Collector Con soon as well, so I thought it would be some sort of Walmart exclusive Transformer figure... I thought it was weird that everybody talked about Transformers all of a sudden, but there's a new movie coming out soon, so why not?" Thankfully, William realized his mistake on time and managed to secure some of the items he wanted from both events. A happy ending to a toy collector story. How weird! More news at 11:00... Who would win though? *ToyFarce News is parody news for laughs and not meant to be taken seriously!
  5. It's Wednesday, and you know what that means... ToyFarce review! This week, we're having a look at the Universal Monsters x TMNT action figure of Splinter, dressed as Van Helsing, from NECA. Continuing on the NECA backlog during the Haulathon month, this is the latest entry in the Universal Monsters and TMNT mashup line, which has been one of my favorite lines lately. Splinter does not disappoint either (even if most would have preferred something else than Van Helsing)! As usual with the figures from this line, it comes in a gorgeous art box with a beautiful painting on the front and picture of the figure on the back. Splinter/Van Helsing (Van Splinter?) comes with an extra head (same sculpt but without hat), 4 extra hands, a knife, 3 wooden stakes, a crossbow, 3 normal arrows for the crossbow, one arrow with garlic on it, one arrow with a hook on it and a stand. The knife and the wooden stakes can be stored on the figure on his belt, and the arrows fit in the quiver on his back. It's a pretty fun take on Splinter, which is basically the same figure as the movie Splinter with a leather jacket, glasses and a hat. The articulation is the same as the movie Splinter too, meaning not great, but at least the arms can move well, the tail is bendy and the head can move a bit. The legs have articulations on the knees, ankles and toes (or whatever the rat equivalent of those bones are called), but he might not be able to stand if moved too much. The accessories are fun, the crossbow is quite fragile (nearly broke it when extracting it from the plastic bubble), and it's nice to have a toy that can hold all his accessories (minus extra head and hands). More news at 11:00... So... Is Shredder going to be Dracula, then?
  6. It's Wednesday, and you know what that means... ToyFarce review! This week, we're having a look at the Gargoyle Ultimate Hudson figure from NECA. Continuing on the NECA backlog during their Haulathon month, I've had Hudson for a while and it was time to set him free. Hudson is the oldest and wisest character in the Gargoyles animated series, and mentor to Goliath. He was voiced by Ed Asner. I am glad he came out early on in the line, I feel like he would have been overshadowed by the other members of the Manhattan Clan if they would have all been released before him. As usual with NECA, the art box looks great. It's pretty big next to other NECA figure boxes too. Hudson comes with an extra headsculpt (screaming), 5 extra hands, poseable wings, a bendy tail and his sword. Like the other Gargoyles figures before him, his wings are HUGE, and I can't wait for another figure to come with his closed wings (like Goliath's draped wings that came with Bronx), because I cannot display him with his wings wide open. Between the tail and the wings, the Gargoyles figures take a lot of shelf space. On the other hand, they are absolutely gorgeous. The NECA spin on them, where they look just like in the animated series, but with a bit of realistic touch on the design, looks amazing on this figure too. Both heads have great details. I don't see how that figure could have looked better. Articulation wise, it is the same as the other Gargoyles figures before it. The parts are easily swappable. Another home run from NECA. The next ones scheduled to be released are Brooklyn and Broadway, with a lot more to come, as seen on the '12 days of Downloads' checklists that NECA revealed during the holiday season. More news at 11:00... "Leave me be... and STOP calling me 'old'!
  7. It's Wednesday, and you know what that means... ToyFarce review! This week we're having a look at the TMNT: The Secret of the Ooze VHS 4-pack and Accessory set by NECA, which took its sweet time getting to people outside of the US. NECA is having their Haulathon event this month, and I have a lot of NECA backlog (aka figures to open), so I guess I'll be reviewing NECA products for the next few weeks. The TMNT: The Secret of the Ooze 4-Pack and Accessory set were available exclusively on the NECA website for a limited time (2 weeks) at the end of March 2022, and have started to arrive over the last couple of months. What makes this TMNT: The Secret of the Ooze 4-pack special compared to the 2-packs that can be found in stores is the packaging, which, just like the comic con exclusive packaging of the turtles from the first movie, looks like a giant VHS box. The box has a big sleeve so you can see what's inside. The design of the box is pretty great, with quotes from the Fwoosh or ToyShiz in the back. Even though there is a separate Accessory set, those figures come packed with accessories too, like their weapons (obviously), as well as 8 extra hands, a fire extinguisher, 2 ooze canisters (full and empty), pizza slices (half eaten ones too!), a pizza box, a foam bat and cold cuts nunchucks! The figures themselves are a nice improvement on the ones from the first movie. For a long time, I thought those were the best turtle movie figures EVER, and after seeing those new ones and comparing them side by side, it looks like the more recent one have better proportions, skin tones, etc...than the first movie figures. They match the suits from the second movie, of course, which were also improved from the first one (lighter, allowing more movements for the stunts), but as figures, they really look great. The TMNT: The Secret of the Ooze accessory set is another home run from NECA, with a variety of accessories that are pretty versatile and can be used for displays or toy photography with other figures than the turtles as well. It includes 5 new head sculpts (1 for each + gagged Raphael), a key tar, a suitcase, a hat, a bowl of pop corn, 2 bags of chips, 2 aprons, a double sided broom, a broken ooze canister, a pizza with pizza slices in it, a computer and keyboard (very 90s), a newspaper, a phone from a phone booth, 2 cups of soda, a chocolate bar, 2 brushes and my favorite: the pre-mutation versions of Tokka and Rahzar! More news at 11:00... GO NINJA, GO NINJA GO!
  8. It's that time of the year again: the announcements for the Haulathon haven't been made yet by NECA, yet the end caps at various Target stores are already full of new figures a week early! Yay for street dates! And of course, half of it is already on eBay... So what happened exactly? ToyFarce investigated. As announced on the promo pic, the NECA Haulathon is supposed to start on February 26th in Target stores, and on March 3rd for online and international purchases. New products should drop every Friday. That is, of course, unless your Target has already put everything out before the event started... We sat down with Kyle, a 22 year old Target employee from New Jersey, to ask why they can't just keep the toys in the boxes until the official starting date of the NECA Haulathon event: "Oh, is there an event? Yeah, we don't really care... We get products, we put them on the shelves". Great. NECA Haulathon? More like NECA Haul-@$#-thon! (Yep, that's a joke from last year). More news at 11:00... Hey, at least, the Canuck Curator is back!
  9. It's Wednesday and you know what that means... ToyFarce review! This week, we're having a look at the Michelangelo as The Mummy figure from the Universal Monsters x Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle line by NECA. This figure was available early as part of the Target Fall Geekout event and will be released everywhere else later. Michelangelo is the third turtle from that line to get the Universal Monsters makeover, after Raphael and Leonardo. The very first impression, after being spoiled with HUGE figures for Raphael and Leonardo, is that this one is definitely on the smaller side. The box has a 'normal' size compared to the previous 2 (or same size as April's box). The box art is gorgeous, as usual, and might be my favorite of the 4 released figures. Michelangelo comes with an additional head sculpt (more on that later), 2 extra pairs of hands, a bendable cobra, 2 Ankh nunchucks and extra pieces of bandage to hang on him. The figure is definitely smaller than the other previously released turtles, but what he lacks in size, he has in details. The details on that figure are great, just like the 3 previous figures from that line. He has Egyptian hieroglyphs on his shell, and extra bandages to add on his arms. The second headsculpt is a fantastic addition, as it is an homage to the rotting Leonardo mask from the third movie, TMNT III from 1993, that popped up in some auction a few years ago, with the same dead eyes and teeth. The next ones in that line should be Splinter as Van Helsing, Donatello as the Invisible Man and Casey Jones as the Phantom of the Opera. More news at 11:00... Walk like an Egyptian turtle...
  10. It's October, Halloween is just around the corner, and as is tradition, NECA is doing the 31 Nights of Fright, where they post something spooky every day of the month, ending on Halloween. Sometimes it's a tease, sometimes it's a brand new figure reveal, sometimes it's a picture of a box,... All good fun! ToyFarce managed to get the exclusive scoop about what the next few Nights of Fright will reveal to us, prepare for more horror classics landing on your shelves! Our insider source told us that there ain't that many more Michael Myers, Jason or Freddy figures they can do, so NECA will have to find more horror cult classics to make figures from. Here are a few of them! The Sofa from KILLER SOFA! Who can forget such a classic as Killer Sofa, a possessed sofa that murders anyone who gets too close to it? We will finally be able to proudly display that figure next to our other horror figures! Can also be use as an actual sofa for dioramas. Zombie Beavers from ZOMBEAVERS! This will hopefully be a two-pack with 2 beavers, or maybe a kind of accessory pack, which would have a couple of zombie beavers, along with human parts that the beavers can chew on or make a dam with! Buff hammershark from SHARK SIDE OF THE MOON! Now that is a great surprise! The 2022 Asylum movie "Shark Side of the Moon", which came out only a couple of months ago, is already getting action figures? Count us in! Hyper-aggressive unkillable sharks are living on the moon, what more could we ask? The "Oh my gooooood" guy from Troll 2! "They're eating her. And then, they're going to eat me. Oh my goooood." If you have never seen Troll 2, one of the worst horror movies of all time, click here to see the clip with the incredible acting and delivery of that line. The long awaited figure of that academy award-worthy actor should come with 2 different heads, both looking up and sideways. We don't even want the actual goblins/trolls. Just this guy! What other classic horror movie would you want to see figures from? Let us know in the comments! More news at 11:00... Oh my goooooooood!
  11. It's Wednesday and you know what that means... ToyFarce review! This week, we're having a look at the Leonardo as The Hunchback figure from the Universal Monsters x Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle line by NECA. This figure was available early as part of the Target Fall Geekout event and will be released everywhere else later. When it was announced, I didn't have much expectations for that one, actually. Leonardo is a cool turtle, but the Hunchback? Why the Hunchback when there are perfectly fine other monsters, like Dracula, the Werewolf, the Creature from the Black Lagoon, etc... still available?! Well, it turns out that, once you have it in hand, it's a pretty amazing figure! The box for this one is HUGE! I should have taken a pic next to the other boxes. It's taller and way deeper than the other Universal Monsters x TMNT figures. That big shell of his does take a lot of space! Leonardo as The Hunchback comes with 3 extra pairs of hands, a skull, a brain in a jar, a pair of shovels, a bone, his katanas, and fire effects for the katanas (that's new!). The details on the figure are perfect in their creepiness (he has spiders crawling all over, etc) and the awesome feature of that one is that his shell opens to reveal... a lot of storage space! Remember, when we were kids, and we could store the extra weapons of our turtles inside their shells? It's the same concept, but gloomier. First, there is a huge lock on the side, and once open, you can see a couple of shelves (to display the skull and the brain jars, with pegs for them to be secure), you can put the katanas through the shell (ouch!), and it keeps the shovels and bones in place on the other side. That figure has great sculpt and details, and I ended up preferring it to the Raphael as Frankenstein, even though I had no expectation for it to be that good. April O'Neil as the Bride of Frankenstein and Michaelangelo as the Mummy were also part of the Target Fall Geekout event, and will be the next 2 reviews, as part of the October Spooky month theme. Boo! More news at 11:00... Cowabungaaaaaargh!
  12. NECA today on their social media posted this image for what appears to be a Bela Lugosi Dracula 7" figure. The image was posted as a belated birthday nod to the actor who was born on October 20, 1882. Stay-tuned for more details on this figure to come soon
  13. It's Wednesday and you know what that means... ToyFarce reviews! This week, we're having a look at the first figure from the new NECA line of Universal Monsters x Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, Raphael as the Frankenstein's monster. NECA has been killing it with their TMNT line, and with their Universal Monsters line, so there is no reason why they wouldn't keep doing that with those crossover figures. First things first, the art box is gorgeous, with old-fashioned, horror movie poster vibe, and bright colors. That is definitely something that will catch your eye on a shelf. If I had more space to display it, I'd be tempted to put the figure with the box behind it. It has the usual NECA box velcro at the front, to reveal the figure through a window. And first impression: that thing is HUGE! Frankenstein's Monster Raph comes with 2 extra pair of hands (closed fists and weapon gripping hands) and lightning bolt sais, which look awesome. But the best part of that figure is all the details on it. NECA did a fantastic job in adding details to the figure to make it look more... "Boris Karloff-y" ? The face has the classic Frankenstein's Monster shape, with a forehead that's more like a fivehead, the scars, the haircut and the bolts in the neck. The figure also has a chain around it, as if to hold the shell together. The shell has some amazing details, like a NY city sewer cover used as part of the shell, a handlebar to pass the chain in or a pressure gauge. Stellar job on the details and paint. Those figures have also had incredible stop-motion promotional videos, made by the super talented DGDX animation, which I invite you to check on NECA's social medias. The next ones will be Leonardo as the Hunchback, Michaelangelo as The Mummy, April O'Neil as The Bride of Frankenstein, and recently announces, Splinter as Van Hellsing. You can be sure that I will be getting those! More news at 11:00... Cowabungaaaaaargh!
  14. Here is my review video of the new NECA Back to the Future Ultimate Doc Brown III 1985 Hazmat Suit action figure. https://youtu.be/cSAnBm6Ns0I
  15. It's Wednesday and you know what that means: ToyFarce reviews! This week, we're having a look at the weird pairing of April O'Neil with Scott Stapp, the singer of Creed, by NECA (or 'Casey Jones', as it was written on the box). Those figures are from the farmhouse scene in the 1990 Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle movie, when April O'Neil goes there to recover after a successful surgery to get better looking knees articulations (I haven't seen the movie in a while). NECA has taken a page from the old Kenner book, and started doing figures from scenes that only lasted a few minutes in the movie (like the "Shadow Warriors" 2-pack, that was taken from a flashback scene that lasted a couple of minutes), so we are now getting those figures with the clothes they wore during the farmhouse scene. Well... we're still buying them, so I guess it's working! April has a different blouse and skirt from the previous version of the figure, and vest-less Casey has the same mask-less facesculpts as the single release from a few months ago. The set comes with... *inhales* an extra headsculpt for April, an extra masked headsculpt for Casey, extra hands for both, Casey's mask, a bottle of juice, a bottle of turtle wax, 2 drawings with 3 pencils, binoculars, tools (a hammer and a wrench) and a katana. The Creed singer likeness is pretty spot on, and it goes very well with the TMNT Musical Mutagen tour set! NECA has always done some nice figures from musicians so let's hope they'll do even more down the line. I just hope they won't put them in two-packs with characters from the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles movie! More news at 11:00... With Arms Wide Opeeeen!
  16. Ming the Merciless! I chose to go with the incorrect Mattel color from the 1980 action figure line, as I will be displaying with my MOTU figures. I also decided to make the colors the brighter, more vibrant colors that Mattel has been doing with their line. Ming is made using the head, collar, waist piece and hands from the recent Neca figure.WWE MOTU base body, with Ricky Steamboat lower arms, and lower legs from a ROE Keldor. I hope you enjoy this and leave feedback. Thanks.
