ABOVE: Mezco Toys Judge Dredd Lawmaster bike. The only accessory that commands more attention that Dredd’s malformed and decidedly disappointed expressed chin. The Lawmaster is the Justice Department’s greatest advancement in law enforcement transportation. No judge leaves home without it. The Lawmaster’s functions include 5 distinct sounds, multiple light-up features, free-rolling rubber-slick tires, turning handle bars, built in handcuff storage pod and a light-up Synitron GK13 onboard computer display. Judge Dredd figure sold separately.
Mattel has unveiled some of their San Diego Comic-Con 2016 exclusives, and one of the more popular desirables is this high-end She-Ra 12-inch doll from Masters of the Universe. Dubbed the Most Powerful Woman in the Universe , this doll has 24 points of articulation, rooted hair, three different costume choices, two swords, six interchangeable hands, and the signature shield. Can’t wait for them to come out with 12 inches Ram-Man and Fisto dolls, imagine explaining those purchases with a loved one or financial advisor when going over your credit card history… [MattyCollector]
“I ain’t afraid of no ghosts” doesn’t quite have the same ring to it these days. Have you seen the Internet, everyone and their grandmother is hating on this upcoming Ghostbusters from Paul Feig. If people aren’t fighting about kids falling in Gorilla cages and transgender bathrooms, they’re spouting their utter distaste for this movie. But let’s assume for a second that it might not be as bad as one might fear it to be, maybe it might actually be good. Maybe good enough that this 1.5 mini figure box set (another SDCC exclusive) from Mattel would be a must have. Press the button outside the box to launch a light and sound show of blue glowing proton beams as Rowan (Giant ghost that ISN’T the Stay Puft Marshmallow man) turns red and screams in rage (presumably screaming “Why Did They Have To Reboot Me!!!!”) . [Mattel]
Who would have thought that when Harley Quinn was created for the Batman: The Animated Cartoon, that she would turn out to be one of the most popular DC characters of all time. How popular is she? Well, when it comes to life size super hero statues, makers like DCEntertainment only mold out and roll out statues based on their heavy hitters, and well, wouldn’t you know who got her own statues? That’s right puddin’, Miss Harleen Quinzel. Of course they had to feature a girl next to the statue in the promo pic above, ’cause a guy would have had that awkward hover hand and that just doesn’t sell statues. [DCEntertainment]
Funko announces their new specialty series starting with Cosmo Pop Vinyl from Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy and the Dorbz version of Howard The Duck! Oh jeeze, just when you thought Funko couldn’t get any cuter the gotta go and do something like this. [Funko]
In Avengers: Age of Ultron Scarlett Witch didn’t do a whole lot except look like the forgotten Olsen sister. She was handled far better in Captain America: Civil War, had some break out moments and literally put the Vision down like way hard. Although, she did instigate the whole “war” between Cap and Iron Man when she tossed Crossbone in a building and inadvertently caused people to die when he exploded, but damn if she didn’t show some sass well doing it. That same sass is captured exceedingly and well in this eerily lifelike 1/6th scale Scarlett Witch figure from Hot Toys. Snazzy jacket and red hot finger reads “Olsen what now?”.

Nerf is developing a dart shooting drone. At last, the ability to snipe people in the anus… anonymously! What a time to be alive. [Geeky Gadgets]
Diamond Collectibles are coming out with figures from Kevin Smith’s cult classic hit Mallrats. Jay and Brodie are the first two in the series, each with character-specific accessories – sock full of quarters and baseball bat for Jay; chocolate pretzel and giant cookie for Brodie – as well as diorama bases depicting different stores in the mall (hehe Rug Munchers)! Wonder if that a**hole from Fashionable Male will get his own figure? Probably not before that topless 3 nippled psychic. [Big Bad Toy Store]
Dunno what shroom fed fever dream these TMNT designs were dreamed up from (are they supposed to be from the Nickelodeon cartoon… except more real?) but someone thought it a good idea to make them into 1/6th collectible figures…. and ask $215 a piece for them. Oh, sh*t… these are designed from TMNT co-creator Kevin Eastman… sorry Kevin. Well hey, you know, there still far better that those turtles with the lips and weird noses from the new movies (suck it Micheal Bay). [threezerostore.com]
If dropping over $200.00 a figure on creepy 1/6th scale figures (above) is too much green, why don’t you take a jump back to a time to 1989 when TMNT ruled the Arcade (hey kids, remember the Arcade?). Back then there weren’t many side-scrolling beat-’em-up that eat more quarters than the TMNT Arcade Game. Now you can call-back to those mad button smashing days with NECA’s SDCC exclusive. This box set is based on the classic Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles 4-player co-op arcade game and features brand new figure sculpts and deluxe packaging. Leonardo, Donatello, Michelangelo and Raphael stand approximately 6” tall and feature over 30 points of articulation, including double knee joints to fully showcase their mastery of the martial arts. Special paint deco reflects the Turtles’ in-game appearance. The box set is packed with accessories, including signature weapons, interchangeable hands, pizza power-up and more. The set comes in gorgeous, display-friendly 5th panel window box packaging that re-creates the look of the actual arcade cabinet! Shredder and The Foot come in their own boxed set. [NECA]
Marvel Legends are continuing to lay waste to the action figure isle of your local Target/Walmart (good lord are these things over produced!), this latest waves is all about the X-Men. The set will include Wolverine, Deadpool, Cable, Jean Grey, Havok, Iceman, Kitty Pryde with Juggernaut as the Build-a-Figure. That’s actually a pretty solid line up. Wonder which figure will come with Juggernauts crotch, bet it’s Deadpool, gotta be Deadpool. [ToyArk]
Long before Spaceghost was a Letterman-esque talk show spoof, he was a real space trotting super hero. From 1966-1968 Spaceghost had many (poorly) animated adventures; mostly his sidekicks would get captured or trapped by the villains, and Space Ghost would have to defeat the villains and save the day. The intergalactic crime fighter has finally been given his due, with this deluxe figure from One12; featuring 32 points of articulation, a fabric uniform (look at that crotch bulge, look at it!), and a whole bunch of arm blaster accessories. Oh, and least forget, Blip the monkey. [Mezco]
Kermit, Miss Piggy Gonzo, Statler & Waldorf and more of the trademark Muppets are all over this cuckoo clock that has lights and sounds that will go off every hour… until ABC cancels it. [Bradford Exchange]
