Justice League Superman 1/6th Scale Collectible Figure “The world needs Superman… the team needs Clark.” – Bruce Wayne
Justice League was released in last fall and went on to break numerous box-office records around the world! As a direct continuation to the events of Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, Son of Krypton, Superman returned from dead and battled against the formidable super villain intruder Steppenwolf and his hordes of Parademons to prevent an invasion of the Earth.
Given the immense popularity of the character, Hot Toys is delighted to officially present the new 1/6th scale Superman Collectible Figure from the latest DC Extended Cinematic Universe blockbuster!
Expertly crafted based on Henry Cavill’s appearance in the movie with astonishing likeness, the Superman collectible figure features a newly developed LED light-up head sculpt that accentuates Superman’s unique heat vision ability coming from the eyes as well as a interchangeable newly painted head sculpt, a newly developed muscular body, a finely detailed and meticulously tailored costume with metallic superman icon on chest, and a specially designed Justice League themed figure stand.

Marvel’s Merc with the Mouth makes history as NECA’s first ever Ultimate quarter scale action figure! Possibly the most skilled mercenary in the world (but definitely the most annoying), Deadpool is the joke-cracking, fourth-wall-breaking, taco-eating funnyman of the cold-blooded killer set.
Ultimate Deadpool stands 18” tall, with over 30 points of articulation for great action poses, and he’s loaded with new accessories. The figure comes with three interchangeable head sculpts, interchangeable hands, and a bounty of weaponry with working holsters and sheaths. The full list of accessories includes: machine gun, assault rifle and pistol, each with a detachable blast effect; katanas; sai; knife; “MR-D” medallion necklace; baseball cap; melted cheese pizza toppings; unicorn; and, of course, a chimichanga.
Check out what would have been the convention exclusives and story for BotCon 2016 before it was recommended that it be changed to Combiner Wars. Which do you prefer? Let is know in the comments. Definitely a few here that the team what worked on the sets would have still liked to have seen!
Story: War has gripped Cybertron for millions of years, the deadly stalemate threatening to wipe Cybertronian civilization from existence. Both Autobot and Decepticon, their ranks depleted, have turned to creating a new generation of fighters to carry on the conflict. These Maximals and Predacons are thus forced into a lethal battle not of their making, forced to arm themselves and continue a war that they know nothing about. As the struggle rages, groups on both sides of the battlefield realize that their true enemies stand not before them, but behind them as the oligarchy at home. A new war looms, a BEAST WARS… The uprising has begun!

Collect These 'Star Wars: The Last Jedi' Force Link Action Figure Exclusives From Hasbro.
Hasbro and Entertainment Earth have revealed three new Star Wars: The Last Jedi 3 3/4" action figure exclusives that are compatible with Hasbro’s Force Link wearable technology!
If you’re unfamiliar, Force Link is an “interactive play system” that activates lights, phrases, and sounds from the Star Wars movies when used with compatible figures, accessories, vehicles and playsets. There are quite a few toys in the Force Link lineup already but, again, the figures featured below are exclusives that you won’t find in stores.
In addition to these exclusive Force Link figures, Hasbro recently unveiled some big additions to their Star Wars Black Series lineup. This includes DJ and Island Journey Rey, who were first previewed at NYCC back in October. The Captain Rex figure is also available to pre-order in standard Black Series packaging. It was previously available as a HASCON exclusive.

Power of the Primes Deluxe Repugnus Coming in 2018?
Via a new listing on wholesale distributors ACD Distribution, we can report that it looks like we have a new, Deluxe class Repugnus figure coming our way at some point in the not-too-distant future to complement last year’s Grotusque and December 2016’s Twinferno. The listing has no image, only details including an SKU and a UPC – 630509626991. There is a listing price of $9.99, but given the current going rate of Deluxes and the listing stating this is a “special edition”, we’d expect that to be closer to $19.99.
The same website also includes a listing of Blast Off, who has been shown a couple of times in leaks. Blast Off has an SKU one digit different to that listed for Repugnus, strongly implying both deluxes are coming as a part of a single assortment. We’d guess given past trends and the use of “special edition” we’re looking at a new “May Madness” type exclusive. For those keeping record, the UPC for Blast Off is given as 630509626977.
We’d imagine with wholesalers now getting this information, a formal announcement is likely to follow from Hasbro very soon – and as the US Toy Fair is around a month away, we’d imagine that is when we will find out more.
