Remember all of those cool things we saw at Diamond Select Toys' NY Toy Fair 2015 booth? Quite a few of the items are apparently due for a Summer release.
The selection includes:
Femme Fatales Superman: The Animated Series S...
It's hard to summarize what a delight it was to look over DST's NY Toy Fair 2015 booth for the first time. Just when you thought you were impressed or excited, there was something that almost blew that out of the water.
The selection included 6-inch Ghostbusters figures, Batman: The Animated Series busts and full statues, Nightmare Before Christmas items galore, a MS Doctor Strange, Justice League Unlimited, and more.
Gremlins, ponies, and sharks, oh my! Funko once again brought a cool mix of collectibles to Toy Fair, as it added even more offerings to its eclectic lines. As the old saying goes, "If it hasn't appeared in a Funko line yet, why don't you wait a month?"
Gremlins, The Fifth Element, Jaws, and more now have figures in the ReAction line. Ghostbusters and Back to the Future characters are appearing as Vinyl Idolz. The Hulk and Rainbow Dash are joining the Hikari line! Frozen Mystery Minis!
To coincide with its appearance at the 2015 New York Toy Fair, Hasbro was nice enough to show some pictures on its official news Twitter. It is giving us who aren't fortunate enough to be there a look into its plans for the n...
If you've been looking for some extra plushies to round out your collection, 4DE has a couple new ponies up for pre-order on their website! Fluttershy will be available around March of 2015, along with a re-release of Un...
This highly detailed and exquisitely cuddly Borg Pony was created by EquestriaPlush, master creator of handmade equine plushies. The quality and attention to detail on all of her ponies is remarkable, but this one takes the c...
It was only a matter of time, but soon Discovery will be announcing the end of their joint television venture with Hasbro, the Hub Network. The Wall Street Journal is reporting that Discovery will soon be taking over control ...
In space, nobody can hear you scream about Diamond Select Toys' awesome new items in the latest issue of Previews. The selection includes a Borg Ice Cube make, a Rarity vinyl bank, Godzilla Minimates series 2, Buck Rogers Minimates, more Aliens merch, new Kill Bill Minimates, and, well, more.
The coolest selection of the bunch is obviously the Borg Ice Cube silicon tray although, sadly, the Borg Ice Cubes it creates will be assimilated into your drink as they melt instead of being added to the Borg Ice Cube Collective. It won't be a total loss, though, as they should convert your beverage's temperature by some degrees in the process.
The Godzilla Minimates line continues with a second boxset featuring Atomic Godzilla, Mechagodzilla, Jet Jaguar, and Hedorah the Smog Monster. The tiny Mechagodzilla is especially adorable. Of course, it's not the only Minimates box set this month as there's the Buck Rogers set (featuring Captain Buck Rogers, Colonel Wilma Deering, Princess Ardala and Tigerman) and the "Masters of Death" Kill Bill 4-pack (featuring Master Pai Mei, Hattori Hanzo and Bill). The Kill Bill set is possibly worth it for Pai Mei alone. I'm just wondering if he'll come with an alternate hand with a torn-out eye.
DKE Toys returned to SDCC with plenty of exclusive figures, and yes, we've already done a rundown of most of them, but two in particular stood out during my visit:
One of those was the largest of the bunch, the AD-AT 3/4...
I asked everyone what their favorite summer hobby was for a chance to win a My Little Pony papercraft playset. I enjoy anything that gets me out of the house, especially on a hot day. So, I think it's time to announce a winner!
Congratulations to Matthew A. Tibo! You will be receiving this playset from Funko. Please email your name and address to firstname.lastname@example.org. Thank you to everyone who entered, be on the look out for more contests in the future.
Diamond Select Toys' latest PREVIEWS offerings (now available for pre-order) inlcude a MLP:FIM Fluttershy vinyl bank, an electronic B9 robot, and the Frank Gorshin Riddler vinyl bank bust. In short, it's another mixed month.
Funko did it! I said I wanted them to surprise me, and that’s just what they did. Their sixth batch of SDCC exclusives all comes from hit TV shows.
The first two come from the critically acclaimed, Breaking Bad. This series is getting massive! There’s already ten regular figures, two Entertainment Earth exclusives, and now two SDCC exclusives.
There will be a glow in the dark Walter White in his yellow cook suit, and a badly beaten Jesse Pinkman. Next comes my favorite Pop! exclusive so far; The Walking Dead’s Hershel Greene. What makes this exclusive so special?
Well, tragically, Hershel comes with a removable head just like the SDCC exclusive last year of Game of Thrones’ Ned Stark. I joked some time ago about Funko making this figure, so I’m happy they actually did. Speaking of Game of Thrones, there will be a Glow in the dark version of a White Walker from the Legacy Collection.
The last two exclusives come from My Little Pony. There will be Vinyl Collectible versions of DJ Pon-3 and Spitfire. Remember to like and share Funko’s SDCC posts on social media for a chance to win these exclusives. I want that Hershel Pop!
