Hello Readers! It is another new week at the Planet and though there isn’t a lot scheduled to come in this week- there’s still product that we’ve either gotten or are getting in within the next few weeks. Some of the new product scheduled to arrive will include Funko POPs as well as some of the new Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice action figures courtesy of Mattel. We’ve also finally gotten in the long-awaited NECA Predator series which feature figures from another Vs. film: Alien Vs. Predator.
The newest NECA wave features the following types of Predators: Celtic, Scar and Chopper. Each figure features more than 30 points of articulation and come with various accessories. This is the 14th series of Predator with more series on the way from NECA. I should be live on the Toy Fair floor in about a month so I will be writing about what’s new from as many of the manufacturers (including NECA) as I can. I will let you know when that gets closer.
Funko has some exciting products in the pipeline including things we should be getting in this week. Our first Funko POP from the Batman V Superman movie will be the Man of Steel himself, Superman. Hopefully the rest of the lineup will be here before too long. Another POP vinyl scheduled to hit is the popular but polarizing Felicity Smoak straight out of the CW’s Arrow TV Series. We will also be getting four of the new Star Wars: The Force Awakens POPs which will include Sidon Ithano, Leia Organa, Ackbar and Nien Nunb. No ETA on the other figures in this wave, including Han Solo as of yet.
Speaking of Batman V Superman– Mattel who has had the DC master toy license for the past decade or so will be issuing figures from the forthcoming movie in many different styles and sizes. There will be at least two 6″ lines coming out for the film. One will be a basic five points of articulation series akin to the recent Total Heroes series while the other will fall in line with the articulation scheme of the now defunct DC Universe Classics and Movie Masters lines and is called the Multiverse series. We should be getting both styles of figures in by the end of the month if our shipment comes on time but these lines should include the Ben Affleck Batman, Henry Cavill’s Superman and the Gal Gadot Wonder Woman. I have personally seen the new Multiverse Wonder Woman figure and she is pretty awesome. She is definitely one to watch out for and was on my list of figures I was looking forward to. Future figures in this series will include comic and TV versions of all of your favorite DC characters including Flash and Arrow.
That’s all for me this week- I will be back next week with more toy news and assorted miscellany. Have a great week!
