Today is Sunday and it’s time for the 110th 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. So let’s see what the big toy news was this week, shall we?
STORM COLLECTIBLES TAKES ON SEVERAL LICENSES IN 6-INCH SCALE
Storm Collectibles was at NYCC 2015, and to many people’s surprise they are going to be taking on several licenses in the 6-inch scale.
NOT COUNTING SUPER HEROES, HERE’S HOT TOYS MOST DONE CHARACTER… AGAIN.
I think Hot Toys has made more Elder Predators than any other character, not counting super heroes, of course. Now they have fully improved the AvP version for a killer figure.
A METALLIC CAPTAIN PHASMA!
It seems like just about every Captain Phasma toy that is getting released just has grey armor. Kotobukiya’s actually has a metallic shine!
WOULD THE REAL STAN LEE PLEASE STAND UP?
GoHero’s Stan Lee 12-inch action figure was slightly disappointing. Hot Toys announced this week that they will be doing him, and the preview image of the prototype looks very promising.
A RICK GRIMES PREVIEW; HOW MANY YEARS TO A PRE-ORDER?
So, 2 years after the first release there is a preview for the 2nd figure in this series. Just how long do you think it will be until we have a real pre-order?
FOR A STATUE, THIS HAS SO MANY DIFFERENT DISPLAY OPTIONS
I don’t collect statues for the simple fact that they are usually limited in their display opportunities. However, Kotobukiya has made a very impressive Alien statue with more display options that most action figures!
THIS AT-AT DRIVER BRINGS BACK MY STAR WARS: BATTLEFRONT MEMORIES
Sideshow Collectibles announced their AT-AT Driver sixth scale figure this week. On the Star Wars: Battlefront memories annihilating the Rebels…
THAT’S ONE FAT HULKBUSTER
Hasbro’s line of Titan Heroes is expanding with one BIG release exclusive to Walmart.
Kotobukiya released quite a few new ARTFX statues at NYCC and one of my favorite looking ones was the Marvel Now! Beast!
