Toy News Roundup: 'Batman 66', 'Man of Steel', 'Aliens' And Way Too Many SDCC Exclusives!
Today we are starting a new weekly post titled the “Toy News Roundup”. Here we are going to cover all of the most important toy news of the week that you may have missed on our site, and also link you to any toy news that we didn’t cover.
SAN DIEGO COMIC-CON 2013 EXCLUSIVES
Comic-Con has started to put up their SDCC 2013 Exclusives page with some of the show’s exclusives, but we all know that our San Diego Comic-Con 2013 Exclusives checklist right here on this site is way more complete. We all love exclusive toys right?
SPEAKING OF SDCC EXCLUSIVES
DC Entertainment has revealed BATMAN 66′ #1, includes Mattel’s Classic Batman action figures on the cover that are due to be released later this year. Retail price: $3.99
NO SIDESHOW SDCC 2013 EXCLUSIVES
Sideshow Collectibles has confirmed that they won’t be having any exclusives products for this years Comic-Con, though they did say that they will be having some more exclusives throughout the summer. I’m still super convinced that they have the 1/6th scale The Walking Dead license that they are going to announce at SDCC. ALSO, right here on Action Figure Fury we are helping Sideshow celebrate their Comic-Con event, most likely with a big giveaway. You can see the countdown to the Sideshow Comic-Con event right here.
IT’S ALIVE AFTER 2 YEARS IN HIDING
NECA’S Spider Gremlin finally becomes a real thing after 2 years of waiting. This action figure is going to be HUGE. Hopefully Gizmo can get his bow and arrow ready quick!
NECA DIRECT IS STARTING OFF STRONG
NECA has started to list the details for their first 2 products in the new NECA Direct line, the Predator Trophy Skulls Pack and the Bioshock 2 Splicer Action Figure 2-Pack. The odd thing is that quickly after NECA put up the information for these figures, they pulled it off their website. They are only going to be available in North America via NECA’s eBay and Amazon stores sometime in July.
BLUEFIN SDCC ITEMS
We covered the Bluefin Distribution and Bluefin Tamashii Nations SDCC 2013 Exclusives, but the pictures didn’t really show off the items very good. Better images of the distribution and Tamashii Nations items are up on Facebook.
IT’S AN ALIEN REACTION!
Super7 has announced 4 SDCC 2013 exclusives, all related to their Alien ReAction line. They are retro cool.
STAR WARS, YOUR MINE!
Entertainment Earth has collaborated with Hasbro to show fans the development of the next wave of the Star Wars Black Series figures. The first figure that they revealed is GREEDO! He’s all mine!
EXCLUSIVE MCFARLANE CONTENT
McFarlane toys has revealed that all of the Halo 4 series 2 figures are going to come with unique codes that unlock exclusive in-game content. Each of the figures unlock a different in-game item, with the Didact Deluxe figure unlocking 2 items.
IT’S A BIRD, IT’S A PLANE!
NECA has released a behind the scenes gallery look at their 1/4 scale Man of Steel Superman. He looks way better than any other Man of Steel figures that have hit the market recently.
SPEAKING OF MAN OF STEEL
Mattel has revealed what’s inside of their SDCC 2013 Movie Masters Superman vs Zod 2-pack. DISAPPOINTING if you ask me. Well played marketing strategy by Mattel? GOOD GAME.
