Today is Sunday and it’s time for another fantastic edition of the Toy News Roundup. Here we round-up all of the most important toy news of the week from our site, and also link you to any toy news that we didn’t cover. Let’s see what the big toy news was this week, shall we?
YODA JOINS THE BLACK SERIES
This week Hasbro announced a brand new 6 inch Star Wars Black series figure, Yoda. Not much information has been released about him, though I think it’s possible that we will see him as early as wave 5.
DC COMICS STATIC ARTS MINIS
Square Enix has announced a new line of figures, DC Comics Variant Static Arts Mini Figures. This figures still have that signature Square Enix look, but also resemble Funko Pop! figures.
1966 BATMAN REVIEW
Our review for this week was the Hot Toys 1966 Adam West Batman. While I did have some problems with his costume, the figure is going to be a fantastic addition to any existing 12 inch figure collection.
POP CULTURE SHOCK ROBOCOP
Since the rebooted Robocop movie has hit theaters, many new companies have picked up the Robocop license. They didn’t pick up the license for the latest movies, instead it’s all about the classic look. Check out the new Pop Culture Shock quarter scale Robocop statue here.
Last week’s episode of Nickelodeon Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles featured Baxter Stockman transforming into Baxter Fly. Based on his new appearance, Playmates Toys has announced that they will be making a new Baxter Fly action figure.
TMNT MOVIE TOYS
The first wave of all of the Playmates Toys TMNT movie figures have been revealed. It’s still not clear what size the figures are going to be, but for now it’s looking like we will get at least 9 figures.

JUDGE DREDD SIXTH SCALE FIGURE
Judge Dredd is a beast and so is this Judge Dredd sixth scale figure coming from Art Figures. He’s not licensed, but that isn’t going to stop me from adding him to the collection.

Last year Funko brought 53 various SDCC exclusives and this year they are aiming to top that with a whopping 86 SDCC 2014 exclusives.
