Toy News Roundup: ‘Captain Phasma’, ‘He-Man’, ‘Legacy Collection’ and Even More TMNT 1/6th Scale?
Today is Sunday and it’s time for the 107th 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?
FUNKO TAKES ON SKYRIM AND FALLOUT 6-INCH FIGURES
I admire Funko for taking such big risks with action figures. This week they announced the first few figures they will release from Fallout and Skyrim.
MORE STAR WARS EXCLUSIVES AT BARNS AND NOBLE
Just about everyone is searching high and low for the latest Star Wars exclusives. Barns and Noble should be getting two new ones very soon if not already.
“ALL SET UP BOSS”
Hot Toys’ first summer exclusive, Maria Hill, was released in Asia this week. It shouldn’t be long before she’s in North America, but here’s some photos to tie you over until then.
BANK ROBBER JOKER 6-INCH FIGURE
Medicom’s latest release in their highly articulated collector focused MAFEX line is the Bank Robber Joker from The Dark Knight.
SUPER7 TO BRING SPECIAL ALIEN ACTION FIGURE SET TO NYCC
Super7 has announced this week they will have a ‘special’ Alien action figure set at NYCC this year as an exclusive. Worth it? Probably not.
ALIEN VS PREDATOR COMIC RECREATED WITH ACTION FIGURES
NECA put their photographer to work this week to recreate some of the best pages from the Alien vs. Predator mini-comic… with action figures!
SIDESHOW’S HE-MAN STATUE HAS THE POWER TO MAKE YOU COLLECT MOTU
Sideshow’s first MOTU statue, He-Man, was announced this week. It’s very well done and is even tempting to someone who doesn’t collect MOTU regularly.
“POPS” T-800 COMING SOON FROM NECA
The fate of NECA’s Terminator Genisys line could be up in the air right now, as they didn’t announce a whole new series 2, instead just a “Pops” version of the T-800.
IS THIS THE ULTIMATE CAPTAIN PHASMA?
Bandai announced their take on Captain Phasma this week for their S.H. Figuarts line. This could very well be the ultimate version of the Captain Phasma you absolutely need.
PRIME 1 STUDIO TO MAKE EVEN MORE BATMAN ARKAM KNIGHT STATUES
Prime 1 Studio has released the following image showing the characters they will be adding to their Batman Arkham Knight Museum Masterline soon.
MORE TMNT 1/6TH SCALE?
We already have Threezero and Mondo making sixth scale TMNT figures, but a company called DreamEX is also supposed to be making some. They will be on display at NYCC.
