This is why “choking hazard” is a thing. [ToyVault]
Making his big screen premier in Captain America: Civil War, Black Panther has now been ushered into the MCU. He’s bulletproof, he’s fast, has razor sharp claws, is awfully jumpy, and is a really honorable guy once he gets past the whole “avenge my dead daddy” thing. Now he’s a Polystone statue by Iron Studios. Look him crouched on that crumbling ledge, ready to pounce and presumably attack a ball of yarn. [SideshowCollectibles]
Fresh outta Daredevil Season 2 episodes? Going through Punisher withdrawals? A man can only rewatch Shane Bernthal say “one batch two batch penny and dime” before he blows a mother f**ker away on replay before he gets hungry for more. Perhaps this 12 inch figure from Mezco, which is not based on the likeness of Bernthall but still, will help itch that trigger finger? He’s got guns, grenades, knives, flack jacket and a “go ahead make me day” stern look on his face. He’s perfect! [MezcoToys]
Hey, it’s everyone’s favorite walking pink ball who literally blows and sucks. Here he is, Kirby, as a collectible figurine by Nendoroid. Since Kirby has nubs for appendages, he’s legs and arms swap out via clever magnets. Be also spits fire (not actual fire). [ThinkGeek]
The last time you heard the term “Batwing” you were probably on the unfortunate receiving end of a stretched out ball sack and the got kicked in the butt several times because “you looked”. Put that behind you, and feast your eyes on Batman’s ride in the sky, the REAL and less threatening Batwing. Part of the Batman Animated Series line from DC Collectibles. It comes in at a whopping 36 inches which features light, slidable door access and room for two 6″ action figures. [ShopDCEntertainment]
This Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Hybrid Metal Figuration Die-Cast Metal Action Figure 4-Pack is gnarly,tubular, and rad. Leonardo, Raphael, Michelangelo, and Donatello have never looked better or possibly more cute. These figures have fully poseable hybrid metal bodies that measure about 6-inches each with over 20 points of articulation. [EntertainmentEarth]
$1099.99 can buy you a lot of Chimichangas or it can get you the next best thing… a life size statue of Deadpool. Instantly bring up the sass of any room with an impressive life-size replica of Marvel’s Merc with the Mouth! This actual size foam Deadpool replica figure stands over 6 feet tall and weighs about the same as 10 Chipotle burritos (200 lbs). [BigBadToyStore]
If you had a childhood in the 90s you might remember those gawd awful Aliens toys produced by Kenner. Particularly with their version of the films titular hero Ellen Ripley. Apparently, Kenner didn’t have Sigourney Weaver’s likeness rights so they made a Mexican farm worker with boobs, gave it a giant oversized gun, and labeled it “Lt Ripley”. Thanks to NECA, you can relive the horror of Aliens and their even more horrifying toys with this Lt. Ripley homage. [Toy News International]
