Other Toy Lines / Bif Bang Pow's Peg Pals
« on: February 12, 2016, 01:14 PM »
Bif Bang Pow! Launches Peg Pals™ - A Brand-New Collectible Line of Wooden Figures.




Once again, a nostalgia themed line aimed at kids of the 60s/70s.   We had a ton of the old fisher price little people wooden figure sets when I was a youngster - Sesame Street, farm, castle, mall, airport, etc.  These could be really cool if they take off.

Press release says they are starting with KISS, but have plans for DC and Marvel, and more.  I probably won't be able to resist a Batman figure when they get around to one, especially if that $5 price holds up.

Other Toy Lines / Funko's 6" Pop Culture Playmobil Figures
« on: February 12, 2016, 01:09 PM »
Funko officially announces the news that was first leaked in January - New Figures from Funko and PLAYMOBIL!



I'll be honest that I'm a little bit bummed to see they are 200% (6-inch) sized figures and $15 each.  As a kid, I loved Playmobil stuff and still have a bunch of it.  My kids have a bunch of the figures and sets now.  Would have been fun to toss some pop culture figures into the mix, but with the 6-inch size, you can't really do that.  Oh well.

The Bullpen / 12" Jumbo Marvel Legends Figures
« on: February 12, 2016, 10:16 AM »
There's 3.75" Marvel Legends.  And 6" Marvel Legends.  Up next - 12" Marvel Legends figures!

$50 each, but they include multiple heads, hands, and accessories.  Makes you wonder if there will be 12" Star Wars figures coming too...?

The Bullpen / Marvel Legends Role Play
« on: February 12, 2016, 10:11 AM »
Looks like Hasbro is taking the "Black Series Role Play for Grown-Ups" idea into Marvel Universe with the new Marvel Legends Role Play Items

Not sure I want to dress up like Cap or IM, but those replica items are pretty cool and way cheaper than the fancy prop replica company prices for sure.  Removable Face Plate on the IM Helmet is pretty cool too.

The Force Awakens / TFA Takodana Battle Pack
« on: February 11, 2016, 01:05 PM »
$19.99 Takodana Battle Pack revealed @ EW

Set includes new 5POA Maz Kanata and repacks of 5POA Finn, Rey, and BB8.  Text in the article says Maz will not be available singly, just in this set.  Set also includes the Anakin Saber and Maz's trunk.

Maz looks great... but sticking her in a $20 box set with repacks is pretty lame.  Pic from EW:

The Force Awakens / Toy Fair 2016
« on: February 1, 2016, 10:50 AM »
Just a little under two weeks to go so it's time for a thread, I guess.

Hasbro's "2016 Entertainment Brand Press Preview" is set to begin at 1:30pm ET on Saturday, February 13th.   The usual slide show (Transformers, My Little Pony, Star Wars, Marvel), then booth visit.  No word yet if any phones will be allowed, but if so I'm sure news will be flowing on Twitter and social media.

The Black Series 3.75" Figures / Walmart Black Series 3.75" Wave 4
« on: January 4, 2016, 01:25 PM »
So, Wave 3 is becoming a bit more common.  Time to start thinking about Wave 4 again.  Here were the rumored figures, with (now dead) Walmart links:

- SW E7 BL VILLAIN TROOPER COMMANDER (Phasma  ???)
- SW E7 BL SECONDARY HERO FIGHTER (?)
- SW E7 BL SIDEKICK BATTLER BLUE (?)

Really hoping one of the bottom two is a TFA 3.75" SA Han Solo.

Watto's Junk Yard / Hasbro Tries to Create Their Own Movie Universe
« on: December 15, 2015, 10:52 AM »
Under a new deal between the studio [Paramount] and Hasbro's Allspark Pictures, G.I. Joe will join up with characters from the Micronauts, Visionairies, M.A.S.K. and ROM brands

This sounds interesting.... but at the same time, it could be pretty lame based on some of the other Hasbro movies we've seen.

I have no idea who is going to be in wave 5, but you can pre-order it now at EE. :P

Not sure if this will be more TFA stuff or if this is when we start seeing the Ahsoka/Jango/Luke/Kanan that were shown at SDCC?

Hasbro Star Wars - Thu. October 8th - 11:15 AM - 12:15 PM (ET)

Join members of the Hasbro team as they discuss the popular Hasbro Star Wars line that hit shelves on Force Friday! Attendees will get an in-depth look at Hasbro’s latest action figure offerings with a look at new product coming later this year.

I'm assuming they will have the "Titanium Series Helmets" there since they just previewed those at Hasbro Pulse. Rumor mill says they will have a few other new things to reveal...

The Black Series 3.75" Figures / Walmart Black Series 3.75" Wave 3
« on: September 23, 2015, 01:48 PM »
Walmart links have been updated with pics! 

- Han Solo
- Rey (Jakku)
- Poe Dameron
- Finn (Jakku)

Not sure if these four are all in Wave 3 or if one of them will be pushed to Wave 4...


I guess I should have figured Han was going to be a repack (since Luke, Chewie, and Vader were), but I was secretly wishing it'd be Ep7 Old Han. :(

Exclusive to Argos in the UK and rumored to be exclusive to Target in the USA, it's a 2-pack with a 6" First Order Riot Control Stormtrooper and 6" Poe Dameron in his regular gear (with white helmet).

« on: September 16, 2015, 10:22 AM »
Yes, it looks like we have yet another exclusive 6" figure - 6" Imperial Shock Trooper.

Starwars-figuren has the details on what looks like an OT Stormtrooper with Shocktrooper deco (won't copy the pic here since they get pretty angry about that sort of thing  :-X).


edit: already up for pre-order in the UK.  Here's a boxed pic from Order 66 Toys in the UK -
