Hey Towelite toy enthusiasts and welcome back to another installment of Towelite Toy Chest! There are some great things going on in the world of toy news so let’s get to it!


Mondo has put the 1/6th scale MOTU Faker figure up for preorder. Just like Skeletor and He-man, there is an exclusive version that comes with an extra accessory and this time it’s the battle-damaged portrait. Check it out here at the official Mondo site or order the regular version from Entertainment Earth!

We are getting a Walgreens exclusive Marvel Legends Infamous Iron Man figure. The ONLY issue I have with this is that after doing a stellar Fantastic Four run why are you doing this version and not an updated one of the original. We have’t had one since the early days of Hasbro ML’s and though that one is pretty great, there should be an updated version. This figure is available this Spring.

NECA has updated the buck and paint scheme of their Alien Queen figure to bring us the Alien:Resurrection version. As you can see it has that brown color that I really didn’t notice in the movies until part 3 and that’s because of the way the lighting was on the other two films. I like the blueish-black tint of the others because it looks more like a bug than anything!


The NECA 1/4th scale TMNT movie Foot Soldier is now available for preorder. You can pick it up with free shipping from Entertainment Earth here.

Here’s something we will all really enjoy! The first appearance of Mickey Mouse can now be a part of you toy shelf. On April 1st, and I hope it’s not a joke, the LEGO Ideas Steamboat Willie will be available at the official LEGO store.

That’s it for this week! Happy Hunting!
