  1. The pile of unopened toys has many names: "the backlog", "the depression pile", "the rainy day figures", "the pile of shame", "the loot pile" (Bigbadtoystore coined 'Pile of Loot' already), "mount toys", "delayed gratification", "Steve" (I don't get that one either) and many more. It is not uncommon to spot one of those piles in an action figure collector home. Sometimes, life gets in the way and you can't open your newly acquired toys right away. But when does it become a hazard to your health? ToyFarce investigated... We interviewed Dr. Pilefree about the dangers of having an unopened toys pile that is getting out of control: "It can become an issue if the pile of toys is so high that it can fall down on you or your loved ones, and hurt them. The secret is to have a strong base, and not pile them too high. Also, if you have more toys unopened than opened, you might actually be diagnosed as a mint-in-box collector, which is a completely different thing. If the pile is starting to be too much to handle, just open some toys. Make an evening of it, put some nice music, light a few candles, and rip into it." ToyFarce hired a team of R&D engineers to come up with a nice idea, in the same vein of the theme parks height requirement signs: introducing the ToyFarce Pile Height Requirement sign! This *adjustable* sign can be put next to your pile, in order to make sure that it's within normal height. If it your pile goes over the limit, you'll just have to open a few toys (or you can adjust the size so that it becomes the new limit). Keep those piles in check! How do you call your pile of unopened toys? Let us know in the comments! More news at 11:00... Time to open a few toys! *ToyFarce News is parody news for laughs and not meant to be taken seriously!
  2. With more and more toy collectors taking to Youtube and making unboxing videos, we have been able to witness several different ways that an action figure box can be opened. Some are more delicate, while others are more explosives (and then there's the Mint In Box collectors that just look at the box). We, at ToyFarce, have noticed that there seem to be a trend where collectors open their boxes from the bottom. We thought it would be a great time for a debate: Top or bottom? Obviously, this is for action figures or other toys that come in boxes, rather than blister cards. Think Hasbro (Marvel Legends, Star Wars The Black Series, G.I.Joe Classified Series,...), NECA, McFarlane Toys, MAFEX... action figures. And of course, it goes without saying that this is for people who open the toys (duh). We will try to demonstrate the pros and cons. TOP: The most logical one, to us. You open a cereal box from the top, right? If you opened it from the bottom, you'd have all your cereals on the floor, or you would have to store the box upside down. So for an action figure that comes in the box, when you look at it from the front, the natural move would be to open from the top, grab the tray, pull it up and your figure is freeeeeee. Simple, efficient. Why would anyone do it any other way? BOTTOM: A lot of people seem to do it that way, which surprised us, at first, and we are still trying to figure out why. I understand it leaves the top part 'untouched', so it looks like it was never opened from the top, but you still know that you opened it from the bottom. A slightly annoying part with that (which is an issue in both top and bottom opening, really) is that when you pull the cardboard flap out, it bends it a little, which leaves a small dent on the cardboard. Doesn't opening from the bottom cause the box to not sit perfectly flat anymore, in that case? WILDCARD: Some boxes (S.H. Figuarts, for example) open from the sides. This is complete chaos and we will not stand for this. How do YOU open your boxes? Let us know in the comments, let's keep that debate alive! More news at 11:00... Some just open their figures from the front... *ToyFarce News is parody news for laughs and not meant to be taken seriously!
  3. It was a quiet Thursday when the unthinkable happened: Vincent, a collector who had pre-ordered some figures from the Marvel Legends Thor: Love and Thunder wave, stumbled upon those same figures at the superstore while doing groceries... and BOUGHT THEM! ToyFarce investigated. "I do that a lot, actually! Most of the time, I pre-order the figures as a backup plan more than anything. Then, if I happen to find them in store before I got them from the pre-order, I just cancel my online order, and buy them at the store." Vincent said. "Sometimes, I also forget if I pre-ordered them already or not, so I just grab them, and then, when I get home, I check my emails to see if I had picked it up or not. If I did, I just cancel it. If they have already sent them, I'll just scalp...I mean help other members of the community later, when they have more value." More news at 11:00... wait, did i pre-order that? *ToyFarce News is parody news for laughs and not meant to be taken seriously!
  4. Last week, ToyFarce sent a request to Haslab to try to get an exclusive interview (since we're on Toy News International and we can do things like that now). To our biggest surprise, they granted us that interview and were actually pretty excited about it! We were expecting a great sit down interview with members of all the different great teams, to talk everything about Haslab: Marvel Legends Galactus, the G.I. Joe Skystriker, the Ghostbusters Proton pack, and the Star Wars the Black Series Rancor... Well, it turns our there is another company called Haslab, a homeopathy company in India. Here's what we salvaged from the interview... ToyFarce: Hello, Haslab, and thank you so much for accepting this interview with us. We couldn't believe that you'd accept an interview after we've been teasing you for so long, so we really appreciate it! Haslab: You're welcome, we're very excited to have a chat with you and get more awareness on the fantastic world of homeopathy! ToyFarce: Wait, what?... Anyway, so how is the development going on Galactus? Haslab: You must be talking about our Gastrolus drops... those are great if you have stomach issues! It helps with heartburn, flatulence,... ToyFarce: I... am very confused right now. Moving on, how happy are you with the response to the G.I. Joe Skystriker? People are very happy about the long-awaited comeback of the O-ring figures! Haslab: "O-ring"? Do you mean...the b**thole? We have a very wide range of products to ease digestion and relieve you of any pain in the colon! ToyFarce: Okay, I see what's going on... If I say Proton Pack? Haslab: Yes, we have lots of tonics too! ToyFarce: This interview is over. Well that was a waste of time... More news at 11:00... Haslab, live life without side effects!
  5. 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!
  6. BREAKING NEWS: ToyFarce has been drafted to Toy News International! ToyFarce is a parody/satire page about the world of toys and collectibles. In an incredible turn of event during the Toy Draft of 2021 (yay, sports!), Jay C and Toy News International decided to join forces with ToyFarce to try to bring some laughter in a world of toy-related sadness, delays and unattainable exclusives. ToyFarce's agent commented on the draft: "We are very excited to join the Toy News International team, and we hope that we'll win the championship next year!". Going forward, all ToyFarce posts will be exclusively on Toy News International. Rest assured, it will still be the same old ToyFarce flavor, we're not going for a "New Coke"/"Crystal Pepsi" deal here! Nothing will change on the social media side, and #ToyMemesTuesday is not canceled. It will still be the same format: Fresh and exclusive (parody/satire) news on mondays and fridays, and honest reviews with a dash of humor on wednesdays. ToyFarce would like to thank everyone who supported, liked, shared and commented throughout the first 2 years, and Jay C for the incredible opportunity. More news at 11:00... ToyFarce for Toy News International. Back to you, Jay C!
