Holy Toy News Batman!

Thanks to the team over at Action Figure Insider (who are currently celebrating their 11th Anniversary, congrats guys!), we have learned that Mattel is planning an all new ‘Dark Knight Returns’ Carrie Kelly Robin figure! This new 6″ scale figure will be a part of the DC Multiverse line alongside other new ‘DKR’ figures Mutant Leader and Armored Batman that were first shown at Toy Fair 2016!

Unlike the three ‘DKR’ themed DC Multiverse figures of Batman, Superman, and Son Of Batman, which are on market now exclusively at Walmart, these figures are not planned to be store exclusives and should be widely available. Carrie Kelly Robin, alongside these other new figures, should be hitting stores this summer from Mattel!

The ‘Batman v Superman’ Toys Just Keep Coming!

With DC Entertainment’s ‘Batman v Superman: Dawn Of Justice’ bringing in the big bucks at the box office, it’s no big surprise that we’re getting even more fantastic collectibles based on the film! The team at Hot Toys have announced not one, but three new ‘Batman v Superman’ themed Cosbaby figure sets!

The first set is Cosbaby Bruce Wayne, which includes a special display for the empty Batman suit and even a Robin suit display! This is the first time any toyline has ever recreated the infamous ‘Robin memorial’ in toy form, so it’s a pretty exciting new piece!

Cosbaby_Robin_Suit_01__scaled_600

Next up is Cosbaby Batman with The Batwing! This Batman figure doesn’t differ terribly from the standard Batman release, although he does include an alternative unmasked Bruce Wayne head! Obviously the real reward here is The Batwing vehicle!

BvS_Cosbaby_Batwing_01__scaled_600

Finally, we have a new Cosbaby set of Unmasked Knightmare Batman with Flying Superman! Each of these figures are set to only be available in this set, so it’s sure to be a must have for big fans of the film.

Marvelous New Hot Toys

The crew over at Hot Toys know just how much we love our Marvel Cinematic Universe figures, so they’ve worked extra hard to bring us two more just in time for ‘Captain America: Civil War’! Marvel fans can look forward to new figures of Captain America and Scarlet Witch, with Cap’s look considered a ‘Battling Version’ from ‘Captain America: Civil War’, and Scarlet Witch in her ‘New Avengers’ look from the end of ‘Avengers: Age Of Ultron’! Check out the full releases for each figure below straight from Hot Toys-

CA: Civil War – 1/6th scale Captain America (Battling Version)

Captain America: Civil War, Marvel’s biggest blockbuster of 2016, is finally landing in theatres around the world very soon! Following the events of Avengers: Age of Ultron, Captain America and the Avengers continue to protect the world, but the team becomes divided into two opposing factions, one led by Captain America and another by Iron Man, after collateral damage prompts the government to oversee and hold accountability for the Avengers’ actions.

To celebrate the release of this highly anticipated blockbuster, Hot Toys is delighted to present a special Captain America (Battling Version) 1/6th scale collectible figure as a MOVIE PROMO EDITION item available exclusively in selected markets!

The highly-accurate Captain America collectible figure is specially crafted based on the image of Chris Evans as Captain America/Steve Rogers in Captain America: Civil War. In addition to the helmeted and newly painted un-helmeted head sculpt of Steve Rogers, the collectible figure also features a new Captain America suit with battle weathering effects, metal shield with scratch marks and weathering effects, a broken Crossbones helmet, and a special debris diorama base!

A Big New Look At Big Marvel Legends

The ‘Marvel Legends’ line has been one of the toy industries top selling lines for over a decade, and while it may have tripped up for a bit when the line first changed hands from Toybiz to Hasbro, it’s shown no real signs of stopping anytime soon! One way the line stays fresh is constant evolution to meet the fans desires, and the latest evolution of the ‘Marvel Legends’ line is here!

IMG_0767__scaled_600

Take a look at the new ‘Marvel Legends’ 12″ scale figures of Spiderman and Captain America! We first saw these a few weeks back at Toy Fair, and while the line has been largely 6″ scale since it’s inception, we’ve previously seen 12″ scale ‘Legends’ figures in the ‘Icons’ line from Toybiz! These new 12″ ‘Marvel Legends’ figures from Hasbro look like they’re on a whole different level than anything that’s come before in regards to detail, accessories, and articulation (Spiderman has over 30 points of articulation alone)! These are set to start hitting stores this July.

 

The Minimate Without Fear

Last year Marvel and Netflix’s ‘Daredevil’ live action television series blew fans away, leaving them begging for more episodes, and most of all begging for merchandise! After months of demand, Marvel is finally giving the fans what they want with a little help from Diamond Select Toys and the all new Daredevil Minimates set! This set includes most of your fan favorite characters like Foggy Nelson, Claire Temple, Wilson ‘The Kingpin’ Fisk, and of course Daredevil himself! Daredevil is sporting his black costume from the first season, and includes alternative parts to become blind lawyer Matt Murdock. Hopefully DST and Marvel won’t keep us waiting too long to get a second boxset from this fantastic series, hopefully with Daredevil in his full red costume, along with Punisher, Elektra, and maybe Stick or Nobu? Or maybe we will see something from Marvel’s other Netflix series, ‘Jessica Jones’? Only time will tell!

For decades, people have lived in fear of their nightmares thanks to Wes Craven’s horror masterpiece ‘A Nightmare On Elm Street’ and it’s star, Freddy Krueger! The original film is heralded by many to be a horror classic, and while it’s sequels aren’t necessarily held in quite such high regard, they still have plenty of fans as well!

Check out the full release from NECA below for all of the info-

From Nightmare on Elm Street Part 2: Freddy’s Revenge, the man of your dreams is back as a new 18” action figure!

650h-39897-Freddy

This is the first time the Part 2 version of Freddy has ever been released in quarter scale form. With over 25 points of articulation, the gruesomely detailed figure is highly poseable, plus it comes with an alternate head and two different right hands (classic glove and organic monster hand with blades).

Bring the horror legend to your collection!
