In what could quite possibly be the quickest and dirtiest Figure Friday yet I’m here to bring you all the new toy news that’s fit to print in as few words as possible. I am incredibly under the gun today and I’m writing this piece well past my bedtime. So here’s a rocket ship
Now on to the toys!
In my personal quest to bankrupt BBP!’s EiC Andy Burns I was duty-bound to feature this box set. Regardless of my personal feelings on the movie, this another super (pun?) effort from Mezco’s One:12 line. It features Batfleck, Superman in his very serious black costume, and The Flash. Each figure is immaculately sculpted, comes with scads of accessories, and will set you back $260 USD. Even if you only want one of these three figures, you’re only a true fan if you buy the complete set.
In my personal quest to bankrupt myself I am duty-bound to feature these new Figuarts releases. Like the true fan I am, I’ve already preordered the Winter Soldier figure but became light headed at The Falcon’s $145 USD price tag. Of course this has lead me to question how big a fan I actually am.
The reason I hesitated on The Falcon is due to the fact that the figure doesn’t appear to come with a shield. And by “a” shield I mean the shield. I don’t think I’m telling tales out of school here but I think we all know that The Falcon will have the shield AND a new title by the end of the series.
I’m also wavering on if I’ll cancel my Winter Soldier preorder or not. The sculpt looks to be okay but I don’t know that they’ve quite captured Sebastian Stan’s likeness. As someone who’s also generically handsome I know what a burden this can be to have your visage truly represented.
Well, THIS announcement was a surprise today.
Gargoyles was a great (surprisingly) Disney cartoon from the mid-90’s that was almost entirely supported on the strength of Keith David’s voice alone. When I write that I mean that Disney would have an impossible time doing a reboot/update/big screen live action update without David in the role. It’s what we Transformers fans call the “Peter Cullen Paradox” insomuch that Peter Cullen IS Optimus Prime and it’s nigh-impossible to replace him.
Last week I finally unboxed my Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: The Movie figures from NECA a full two years after buying them and I can safely write that NECA is the right company to bring Goliath to toy form.
