Midweek Toy News!


Hey gang! Thought I’d compile a little update/summary of midweek news for dat ass! A few up coming things to look out for and some drop info to boot.

Enjoy!

…………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………..

This Friday, Feb 10th @ 7 pm begins The Four Horsemen’s gallery show, Toypocalypse 2: Futureto at  TT Underground Gallery in New York City. The mighty Horsemen have just posted on their website a sneak peak at the limited edition print that will be sold at the show.

The 11″ X 17″ Outer Space Men print was painted by Nathan Baertsch.  If you’re in the NY area this weekend do yourself a favor and check it out.

Over at the Art Asylum they’ve revealed their upcoming Avengers movie Hulk toy for Marvel Select Toys!  This guy stands at 8.25 inches and will tower over the rest of the gang. While you have to wait until April to grab this ticked off green guy, you can still mosey over here to snatch up some of the Avengers which are already available for preorder.

Round 5 and Jeremy Madl, known as MAD in the art toy community are collaborating on an exciting new and officially licensed collection, Bruce Lee’s Temple of Kung Fu. Release details are pretty scarce except for the tried and true “coming this summer”. In the meantime you can check their official video showcasing MAD at work and get pumped up about it like me!

 UPCOMING TOY RELEASES!

Speaking of the Four Horsmen, if you collect Masters of the Universe Classics you probably already know this, but if you’ve been wondering exactly when  do anything for you then the date to remember is Wednesday, February 15th at 9 a.m. PT

This info straight off Matty Collectors page.

Masters of the Universe® Classics

  • Sorceress®, Club Eternia® Figure of the Month (included with 2012 Club Eternia® subscriptions): Finally nesting in the MOTUC lineup, the Heroic Guardian of Castle Grayskull™ is without a doubt one of the most fan-demanded figures we’ve offered to date. She comes with fully articulated wings, Staff of Power, Zoar™ bird form and bird perch/removable armor.
  • Fisto™ Club Eternia® Figure of the Month (included with 2012 Club Eternia® subscriptions):: The hard hitting brother of Man-At-Arms® is ready to bring the pain! Comes with swappable heads with and without his 200X-inspired headband, a removable belt, vintage purple sword and — at long last — the missing 200X oversized smasher sword that was cut from the 200X figure at the last minute.
  • Beast Man® (reissue)
  • Stratos® (reissue)

You know, when I was 8 years old, I didn’t even blink at the names of my Masters of the Universe toys… today it’s a little different.

The sacrifices I make.

I’m a big Mass Effect fan, I’m also a big Kotobukiya Bishoujo fan. Koto’s version of Liara T’Son looks really great and is available for preorder here! I can’t wait to see what else they do with the license. Please oh please Subject Zero (Jack)…

Square Enix’s Play Arts Kai Batman: Arkham Asylum figures are now available for preorder here. Square Enix’s Play Arts Kai.. or as I shall henceforth call them “Squenixplart-kai”.. eh, on second thought never mind… are well known for making incredibly articulated and detailed figures.  Currently four varieties are available for preorder, Batman x 2, Joker and the lovely (creepy?) Harley Quinn. Roughly $75 a pop.
