Toy Fair 2015: Diamond Select Toys brings the best display ever

Feb 21 // Scarecroodle
The biggest news might be the 6-inch scale Ghostbusters figures which look a LOT better than the ones Mattel gave us a few years ago. Besides the superior sculpting, paint, and likenesses (although Ray's forehead still looks a little large, even compared to Dan Aykroyd's massive noggin), the figures will also include better accessories: each one seems to come with a proton stream and at least one of them includes the ecto-goggles & a full ghost trap. Now I wish I had waited 4 or 5 years instead of picking up Mattel's versions... DST also had a pretty full display for Tim Burton's holiday classic, The Nightmare Before Christmas. The selection apparently included articulate figures (possibly for the Select line?), oversized dolls, and a healthy amount of Minimates. Given the film's large cast, there's certainly a lot of room for these lines to grow. Personally, I need that Oogie ASAP. I was also excited to see a Marvel Select Doctor Strange. Yes, most companies with the Marvel license have done at least one good Doctor Strange (Toy Biz with its ML version, Hasbro with MU), but it's still really awesome to see a new one especially since the MS version will likely have alternate hands and some neat accessories. He stood alongside the recently announced MS Ant-Man and zombie Sabretooth, as well as the previously shown (and currently available?) Cable and Carnage. All of that was really exciting, but then I saw all of the Batman: The Animated Series stuff and... like... whoa. There were a lot of busts on display including Batman (one suspiciously looks like a Dark Knight Returns version?), Catwoman, Poison Ivy (who looks great), and the Phantasm. For those who enjoy more affordable busts, Joker and Harley Quinn each had a vinyl bank bust on a lower shelf. Catwoman, Harley Quinn, Ivy, and Batgirl will apparently also be getting full statues. I'm excited to see what else DST may do with the license. If that wasn't exciting enough, DST will also be producing Justice League Unlimited collectibles. This apparently includes a great-looking Supergirl and Wonder Woman. The selection also includes what look like lunchboxes as well as bottle openers. DST has apparently also expanded its My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic line of vinyl banks. I had somewhat lost track of these offerings but, as always, the poses look cute and they have neat stands. Hopefully the faces will be a bit nicer on the new ones. Oh, plus there were some Spongebob Squarepants Minimates on display. I can't remember if we'd seen all of these before. Finally, I just learned that the Cthulhu vinyl bank will be coming in an additional color (ie, more to buy). Plus there's some female character next to them that I don't recognize, although the design looks neat. Other items on display (and in the photo gallery) included: Black & white 6-inch Select Clerks figures (including Randall and Dante!) Some new TMNT stuff, including a neat Shredder buff and some vintage comic-style Turtles Minimates More Tarentino Minimates, including Beatrix in her coffin from Kill Bill vol. 2 Star Trek collectibles, including some items for Worf Godzilla collectibles, including a figure for Rodan A Predator bust of some sort Dragon Age Minimates Be sure to check out everything in the gallery. (In other news, I think I spent too much time putting this together.)

It's finally time to talk about Playmates' figures for the upcoming TMNT movie

May 06 // Scarecroodle
As with the Transformers films, Michael Bay has radically reinvented the iconic turtles and, despite massive leaps in special effects, still managed to make them look as goofy as the turtles seen in the 1990 film (and that bizarre concert tour). As such, that sets the bar pretty low for the associated merchandise, right? Well, Playmates might have limbo'd right under it. From the images that we've seen (including that big one in the gallery), Playmates' new figures seem like a step down from the good work the company has done with the line for the Nickelodeon cartoon. It's hard to judge just from the photos (they may look better in-person, etc), but the sculpting doesn't seem as solid and the paint appears to have that cheap Happy Meal look to it. I'm not liking the look of the Turtles although that opinion might be based more on my dislike of the movie designs. The April O'Neill (in the film played by Megan Fox, who also starred in the Transformers films until she offended Spielberg by comparing Michael Bay to Hitler) is a little reminiscent of the (first?) April we we saw in the new cartoon toy line and, while the head could be improved, it looks okay. I think my favorite is probably Shredder whose goofy costume looks like it was designed to be a toy. The spiked cape in particular cracks me up a little and I'm looking forward to adding him to a shelf alongside my other Turtles stuff. Finally there's Splinter whose design is surprisingly pleasant. The figure's articulation looks like it may be impeded by the outfit but the sculpting looks pretty good and the head seems to have some very visible Asian influences. I'm still hoping that these might look great in person (and, for that matter, that I'll actually enjoy the TMNT reboot...) although a few, like Shredder, will be hard to pass up regardless.
