He’s Mary Poppins Y’all!
Good sequels are few and far between, but this summer’s ‘Guardians Of The Galaxy Vol. 2’ definitely lived up to the hype of the first film and expanded its already wonderful cast of characters by giving them all more screen time and depth. Perhaps no single character from the first film benefited from this as much as Michael Rooker’s ‘Yondu’, who many consider to be the real heart of the film after he stole every scene he appeared in. The team at Hot Toys are finally giving Yondu his due with an all new 1:6th scale figure of the character based on his appearance in ‘GOTGV2’, and wow does it look like one of their best yet! There’s even going to be a deluxe edition with even more accessories! Check out the full listings from Hot Toys below for their new 1:6th Scale Yondu figure!
“I’m Mary Poppins, y’all!” Once a Ravager, forever a Ravager. Yondu will always remain in our hearts. Years ago when Yondu was actively involved in child trafficking in Ego’s quest, Captain Stakar exiled him for violating the Ravager code. But after knowing the terrible fate the child will face, Yondu chose not to deliver Peter Quill (Star-Lord) to Ego and raised him instead; even sacrificed himself to save his beloved son Star-Lord.
Today, Hot Toys is pleased to dedicate to Marvel fans the 1/6th scale Yondu collectible figure in memory of his selfless act and his loyalty as a Ravager from Guardians of the Galaxy Vol.2. Expertly crafted based on the image of Michael Rooker as Yondu in the well-reviewed blockbuster, the 1/6th scale Yondu collectible figure is just phenomenal, highlighting the remarkable likeness. The figure features a newly developed head sculpt, interchangeable magnetic fin and the new “prototype” fin, a intricately tailored and highly detailed costume, a pair of suspenders with arrow holster, a dagger attached to the wrist band holster, a specially designed figure base, and a miniature Baby Groot attacking in his Ravagers outfit!
Now, head onto pre-order and own this meticulously crafted Yondu collectible figure. This new Guardian will be one of the coolest additions to your marvelous collection.
“He may have been your father boy, but he wasn’t your daddy.” Sacrificed himself for his beloved son Star-Lord, Yondu will forever remain in many fans’ hearts. Making a great demonstration of a being great “daddy” for his heroic act, fans are deeply affected by the emotional scene when Yondu gave up the last space suit to Peter Quill in order to save him. In tribute to the touching moment in the film, today Hot Toys is pleased to introduce a special Deluxe version of the 1/6th scale Yondu collectible figure from the highly acclaimed Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2!
The spectacular 1/6th Yondu collectible figure is specially crafted with impressive likeness based on the image of Michael Rooker as Yondu in Guardians of the Galaxy Vol.2. The figure features a newly developed head sculpt, interchangeable magnetic fin and the new “prototype” fin, a intricately tailored and highly detailed costume, a pair of suspenders with arrow holster, a dagger attached to the wrist band holster, a specially designed figure base, and a miniature Baby Groot attacking in his Ravagers outfit! This Deluxe Version will specially include an additional Aero-rig that can be worn on Yondu’s body and a brand new Rocket’s blaster appeared at the scene when they are fighting against Ego the Planet, and a cage where Groot was held captive by Taserface, offering fans an assortment of accessories.
Reward yourself with the brand new Yondu collectible figure Deluxe version and display it alongside the Guardians.

NECA Scares Up Some New Teasers
The team at NECA are renowned for their wonderful collectibles, many of which are based on some of our favorite horror and science fiction films. This week we got our first look at a few new items heading our way from NECA, and it’s a good thing no one can hear you scream in space because these are pretty damn exciting!
First up is an early glimpse at the new Razor Claws Alien! This figure is part of NECA’s ongoing ‘ALIENS’ line from an upcoming wave based on the classic ‘Alien Vs. Predator’ arcade game! This purple and black Xenomorph looks more than frightening enough to haunt our nightmares! Check out the info from NECA below!
Introducing a new collection inspired by the classic 1994 arcade game that actually predates the movie! The Aliens Assortment includes three Alien adversaries from the game: Razor Claws, Chrysalis, and Arachnoid make their action figure debut with paint deco that re-creates the look of the arcade game.
The figures utilize the new super-poseable Ultimate body, with over 30 points of articulation and bendable tail. Approximately 9″ tall. Window box packaging.
Our next piece of news is a little bittersweet considering recent events. This week we lost the legendary horror director Tobe Hooper. Hooper was famous for directing some of the genre’s most iconic films like ‘Poltergeist’, ‘Salem’s Lot’, and of course, ‘The Texas Chainsaw Massacre’. The team at NECA announced their new retro style figure set of Nubbins ‘The Hitchhiker’ Sawyer just before it was announced the Hooper had passed, so while it’s an awesome new figure set it arrives with a twinge of sadness. This retro-style soft clothes figure set comes packaged with a figure of The Hitchhiker based on his appearance in the first ‘Texas Chainsaw Massacre’ film (where *SPOILER ALERT FOR A 40 YEAR OLD MOVIE* he, unfortunately, meets his end) as well as the parts to transform him into the decomposing corpse of ‘Nubbins’, who Chop Top lovingly carries around as his adopted brother in ‘The Texas Chainsaw Massacre 2’! Check out the full release from NECA below!
This first appearance of The Hitchhiker from Texas Chainsaw Massacre in our clothed action figure line celebrates the character’s circle of “life”! The Hitchhiker (aka Leatherface’s brother Nubbins) first appears in the 1974 film, where he meets a gory end. However, his mortal remains return in the second movie as a puppet-like pal carried around by Leatherface’s other brother, Chop Top.
This collector’s set includes both versions of the character and plenty of accessories. The Hitchhiker is fully articulated and comes with pelt, knife and camera accessories. Dead Nubbins has a bendable wire armature for posing and loops that allow your other TCM figures to “puppet” him. He has synthetic hair and comes with a stand. Figures are approximately 8” tall and come in window box packaging.
Winter Is Coming To Titan
While a little late to the game (of thrones), it’s always better late than never! This week the team at Titan Merchandise revealed their ‘Winter Is Here’ collection of ‘Game of Thrones’ themed 3″ Vinyl blindboxed figures! This series is expected to hit stores this fall and includes figures of many fan favorite characters including Jon Snow, Tyrion Lannister, Arya Stark, The Night King, Jaime Lannister, The Hound, and more! Check out the full lineup below!
The Funko Forecast
Get ready for the Funko Forecast! This is where we’re going to be showcasing all of the cool new announcements and reveals from Funko! With all of the awesome that consistently seems to be flowing out of those guys, it shouldn’t be hard to keep this section alive each and every week!
Of Course They Did
In a move the surprised no one at all, the team at Funko has announced not just one, but TWO new POP! Vinyls coming our way of ‘Pickle Rick’ from the hit animated comedy ‘Rick and Morty’! The character has been a real breakout this season, so it was expected that we’d be seeing some Pickle Rick merchandise, I just don’t know if we expected to get it so soon! This is due in stores this fall!
Funko Raises The Right Hand Of Doom
After years of fans pleading, Funko has finally announced a wave of POP! Vinyls based on Dark Horse Comics fan favorite ‘Hellboy’ series! The wave consists of our titular hero Hellboy, Abe Sapien, Liz Sherman, Lobster Johnson, Rasputin, and The Blood Queen! Additionally, there will be a chase variant of Hellboy with horns! These are due out this fall!
Nothing brings the family together for the holidays like good old fashioned nostalgia and holiday movies, and there are few in existence quite as iconic as the booby-trap filled ‘Home Alone’! This winter Funko is bringing the action into your POP! Vinyl collection with POP! Vinyls of Kevin, Harry, and Marv you can bring home! We wouldn’t recommend leaving them alone though, lest you return to a house full of sprung traps! If single releases aren’t enough for you, there will also be a Best Buy exclusive 2-pack of Harry and Marv.
DC Goes Dorbz
It’s been a while since we’ve seen a wave of DC Comics themed Dorbz figures based on their actual comic book counterparts, so Funko appears to be throwing us a bone with a new wave of exactly that this fall! You can look forward to Aquaman, Hawkman, Supergirl, and Superman hitting stores in just a few weeks! Superman has a chase ‘Red Son’ variant version, plus there are retailer exclusives like Hot Topic exclusive Hawkgirl, and Toys R Us exclusive Bizarro!
If there’s one franchise that Funko fans will never get tired of, it’s probably ‘Guardians of the Galaxy’! The second film in the series, ‘Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2’ hit DVD and Bluray last week, so of course now Funko has announced a few new retailer exclusive POP! Vinyls to help commemorate the occasion! At Walmart, you’ll find Starlord in his Gear-Shift shirt, while Toys R Us has Baby Groot Holding Bomb, and FYE has Drax with Baby Groot! These are due in stores any day now!
And with that, we bring this week’s Toy News Tuesday to a close! What do you think about the new items announced this week? Do you plan on picking up anything we mentioned in this week’s column?
