Good morning toy lovers and collectible cravers! Let’s get into some highlights of this week past.
We got our first look at the upcoming Marvel Legends wave featuring characters from Avengers: Endgame. More importantly we are getting an updated Hercules figure and the Ebony Maw is a must have for your movie collection. Throw in some weirdos like Nighthawk, Living Laser and Citizen V and we have a pretty impressive release. That Ronin is probably spoilers for those of you that have no idea of what’s going on.
You have to love NECA’s Coraline figures. They invoke the character perfectly and with no end in sight, we love this line. Here’s the official low-down from NECA.
Based on best-selling author Neil Gaiman’s Coraline, LAIKA‘s stop-motion animated feature film is a must-see that speaks to audiences of all ages with its magnificently triumphant story. Bring home a piece of its fun and spooky magic with these 7″ Coraline figures, available in either real fabric striped shirt and jeans, or rain coat and boots, as seen in the movie. Her fully articulated body has moveable eyes and an attachable display stand to let you create a wide variety of delightfully expressive poses – maybe even star her in your own stop-motion animated movie.

I love me some Figuarts, especially Star Wars. The other side of the Disney-verse, Bandai also makes some amazing Marvel figures. Take a look at the Nebula figure above and try not to expand your collecting habits.
We talked about the Mezco One:12 Collective Pennywise earlier this week. If you want the official rundown, check out our article here. My professional opinion on this one is if you love the character and the design get this one. Yes NECA has a lot to offer with what they have done at that scale, but this is a clothed premium action figure. The price is a little steep and it reminds me of what they did with the Joker, so I can justify it.
I’ll tell you right now, the Zero Year Batman design is amazing. I have the DC Collectibles 7″ version, but this statue from Prime 1 Studio blows my mind. The price is insane but if I could afford it, I’d buy it. There are two different versions and will run you $1549 and $1599 for the exclusive. The exclusive has an extra arm holding a grappling hook. Want it.
Speaking of other Batman things I want, that definitely includes this Iron Studios Batman v Joker Diorama Statue. This sucker is 20″ tall and will run you $800. You have one year to save up for it, get started.
Finally in things that I want so bad but will never be able to find and or afford. The Diamond Select Toys/Gentle Giant Darth Maul Spider statue is the thing of nightmares and I wish that I could put it on my shelf. If you are going to Star Wars Celebration, get your hands on this beaut for $200. Not too shabby! Make sure to get me one too, I’ll Paypal you. Seriously.
See you toy collector. Happy Hunting.
