NECA Dares To Enter ‘Pans Labyrinth’
Few creators are quite as visionary as director Guillermo Del Toro. Del Toro finds a way to make each film he works on unique and brings his artistic visual style to each new project. Many of the creatures from his films would translate perfectly to toys in our collections, which is why we are so excited about this week’s news from NECA! This week our friends over at NECA have released new solicitation information and images for their upcoming figure of ‘The Faun’ from ‘Pans Labyrinth’, which is a part of their new ‘Guillermo Del Toro Signature Collection’ line! This 7″ scale figure stands a whopping 9″ tall and is super-articulated so that you can pose him in a number of different ways when he releases in Q2 2019. As far as accessories, The Faun includes two satchels, a dagger, and a bone flute as seen in the film. Unfortunately, The Faun does not come packaged with the Ofelia figure seen here, although she is slated for release later in 2019. Check out the new solicitation information and images from NECA below! NECA’s new collaboration with renowned movie director Guillermo Del Toro brings select characters from Del Toro’s films to life in premium action figure format with deluxe added elements.
From the dark fantasy film Pan’s Labyrinth, the mysterious Faun stands over 9” tall, is super-poseable and comes with detailed satchels, bone flute, dagger, and more. Collectible deluxe window boxed packaging.

Diamond Select Toys Prepares To Head ‘Into Darkness’
Our good friends at Diamond Select Toys have released new “in package” images of their upcoming ‘Star Trek Select’ Captain Kirk and Mr. Spock figures! These new ‘Select’ 7″ scale figures are the first figures DST has produced based on the modern ‘Kelvinverse’ (which is what the fandom has taken to calling the ‘Star Trek 2009’ universe) and gives us Kirk and Spock as they were seen in 2013’s ‘Star Trek: Into Darkness’. Each figure sports 16 points of articulation and is loaded with accessories including phasers (both blasters and rifles), communicators, blast effect pieces (also one of the only times we have seen these from DST! It’s an exciting time for sure!), alternative hands, and transport pod display bases. Both Kirk and Spock are expected in stores in January 2019 with an MSRP of $24.99. Check out the full release from Diamond Select Toys below!
A Diamond Select Toys release! The toy line everyone’s waited for is finally here! Since J.J.

Now, DST has brought the new timeline to the world of Select action figures! These screen-accurate figures of Kirk and Spock capture the costumes and faces of the new movies, and each features approximately 16 points of articulation, as well as multiple accessories and connecting transporter pads.

Get Ready To ‘Marvel’ At These New Legends
While we got a sneak peek at these a few months back, Hasbro has now released new high resolution images of their 6″ scale ‘Marvel Legends’ wave for next year’s ‘Captain Marvel’ movie! We are also seeing at least one never before seen figure before here, so it’s definitely an exciting time for ‘Captain Marvel’ fans! The movie based figures in the wave will include Captain Marvel, Captain Marvel with Bomber Jacket, Talos, Nick Fury, and Star Force Commander! There will also be a few comic themed figures in this wave like Grey Gargoyle and Genis Vell, as well as a large Kree Sentry build-a-figure ( comic styled figures not pictured).

“I’m Going To The Pharmacy, Do You Need Anything?”
Now that the ‘Fantastic Four’ team is complete, it looks like Walgreens is looking to the ‘X-Men’ franchise for their next exclusives! This week Hasbro confirmed that their previously teased 6″ scale ‘Marvel Legends’ Mystique figure will be available exclusively at Walgreens stores when she releases early next year! This new Mystique figure is based on her classic comic book appearance, so she is sure to be one that ‘X-Men’ fans will be after! Mystique comes packaged with a ‘shapeshifting’ Rogue head (which should fit on the recent Rogue figure released earlier this year), as well as a Lilandra head (which may just be an alternative shapeshifted head, or could be teasing a Lilandra figure coming soon!).
