Toy News Roundup: ‘SDCC Exclusives’ ‘Transformers’ ‘MOTUC’ and BIG NEWS
Last week we started this new weekly post titled “Toy News Roundup”. Here we round up 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.
TRANSFORMERS ROLL IN
As you probably already know, BotCon 2013 is this weekend and there are a ton of new reveals from Hasbro. Hasbro has also revealed the fan voted Hall of Fame winners, which are none other than Beast Wars Megatron and Ultra Magnus. Read all about them here.
SPEAKING OF TRANSFORMERS
With BotCon 2013 happening this weekend Hasbro has decided that it would be a good time to finally reveal the Hasbro Transformers SDCC 2013 Exclusives. G1, Beast Hunters, and METROPLEX! Yea…
WE CAN ALMOST PLAY WITH THE KAI
A long time ago we saw un-painted prototypes of the Play Arts Kai Man of Steel Jor-El and Faora figures, and now they have finally received a paint job.
CLAMP CHAMP RAGE (AND ICER SLIDES IN TO CHILL YOU OUT)
Mattel released the packaged images of the upcoming MOTUC Clamp Champ figure and also stated that they won’t be having any stock available for sale day. Don’t worry though, Icer is also ready for his big MOTUC debut, and hopefully he can calm the waters.
DISNEY STORE EXCLUSIVE IM3
Diamond Select has finally revealed the “exclusive” Marvel Select Iron Man 3 figures that they are going to be offering related to the Iron Man 3 movie. It looks like we will see a Battle Damaged Mark 42 and Iron Patriot figure.
The Hot Toys Avengers Hulk has seen his fair share of delays, but he’s finally seen his Asian release and Hot Toys and Bloggers have released a ton of images of this beastly 1/6th scale figure. I still suggest that you hop on the Sideshow waitlist if you really want this figure. You need him.
THE TIME OF THE ORC HAS COME
You should already know by now that Asmus Toys has HUGE plans for the Lord of the Rings 1/6th scale figures. They have already revealed the Morgul Lord, which should be released soon, but on their Facebook page they released an image of an Orc. Possible next figure?
Agent Phil Coulson lives on as Marvel announces their SDCC 2013 Exclusives. They have a bunch of exclusives, including a Marvel Universe Old Man Logan action figure which you can only get by signing up for a Marvel subscription at SDCC.
GO, GO, POWER RANGERS!
Bandai America has also announced what they are going to be bringing to San-Diego this year. You can look forward to 3 Power Rangers items including: a Metallic 4″ Green Dragon Ranger Figure, a Legacy Power Morpher – Green Ranger / White Ranger Edition, and Deluxe Gosei Morpher.
MORE EXCLUSIVES I TELL YOU
As we are really creeping up on SDCC, and our SDCC 2013 Exclusives checklist is getting very big very fast. We have just recently updated it again with a TON of new items. Stop by and check it out. New items are being added just about every day.
We would like to leave you with the biggest news of the week… Damn that’s big…
