Yep, I'll probably be getting two - one to keep MIB, and one to open... :D

BTW, Mattel's JW line won the 2018 Toy Of The Year( TOTY )award for Best Action Figure Series! I seem to recall Star Wars winning that a lot in the past...

Mattel has shown more balls in the short time they've had the license, than Hasbro EVER did...


Indeed. For me the toys are MUCH better then the actual movie ever was.

Anyone here familiar with the HasLab's Star Wars Jabba's Sail Barge? Check out rebelscum.com, if you have any questions. Thing is, these buggers are HUGE, made to scale with the 3.75 inch Star Wars figures. It comes fully assembled, so the box is BIG, like four feet long. They've just started to ship, and get this - the shipping box form-fits the Sail Barge box. Idiots. Any damage to the shipping box could transfer to the Barge box, and that means some rather irate SW fans... :roll:

Thank you! I got a head full of twigs after taking it, but it was well worth it :lol:
I was totally thinking it would be a really cool shot in IT II, Pennywise just going ballistic in the woods chasing the Losers Club would be so creepy

Possibly. But I just picked up the Black Series Battle Droid - truly an item that gives one hope for the line. I wonder why it took so long to get this army builder into the BS ranks. Maybe it took a while to get the tooling right? It's not perfect, but it can hold the blaster rifle properly, and scrunch down into it's inactive mode, both major positives for this figure. You KNOW that some folks are gonna want multiples of this droid...

It can hold a blaster rifle correctly?! :shock:

I never thought I'd see the day. Well, all right. I officially take back some of the unkind things I've said about Hasbro lately, and I will need to get at least one of these droids really soon.

Has anyone seen any of the new NECA cartoon Ninja Turtles figures in the UK? As I've been looking high and low for them and found nothing. Same thing with their 62 Godzilla?

Yes, it CAN hold a blaster rifle correctly. Two-handed, pointing forward. Nice.

That stupid Retro line unveiled at Toy Fair is NOT a step in the right direction... :(

Added in 1 month 1 day 19 hours 6 minutes 11 seconds:
I finally found a 12 inch True Moves Doctor Sivana figure from the Shazam! movie line by Mattel. I had to ask a Target employee to check the stockroom and I struck gold. The casepack contains the corresponding Shazam figure as well, but I think Sivana is shortpacked, as he is the villain and not as "exciting" as the hero.
EDIT: Shortpacked is right! Looked it up on EE - Shazam, 7 per case. Dr. Sivana, ONE per case. :shock:

In the quest to obtain the most memorable of my childhood toys, I finally acquired this one. A 1978 boxed green Mattel Suckerman. I remember finding $7 or so on the floor of a department store (Alexanders). I actually looked around to see if anyone was in the area who may have lost it. Seeing no one, I was convinced I did my due diligence. I then used the money to buy this guy. The boxed version not the bagged header card one (no different). Box is a little ragged which is fine w/me. Still has the clear window insert and warranty card. Reinforced the tears and flaps and will cover with celo-wrap to keep it protected for display.

Also bought the MacFarlane GoT dragons - Viserion & put in a Preorder for Drogon

Wish I had 2 of each toy as a kid....1 to play with and 1 kept mint in the box!!

Robot Spirits Gelgoog Jaeger set for October release, saw the news over at /toy/. A steep 7,000 yen though. I guess Bandai figures they can charge what they want since this is the first ever action figure for it.
So then Worf suddenly has a purple space bazooka...

Well, the Mattel Jurassic World BATTLE DAMAGE Spinosaurus has been revealed...

Let the crying begin: WAAAAH! I don't like the new colors! WAAAAH! I wanted the same colors as Target's! WAAAAH! I'm not getting it!

And on, and on, and ON, all across the web. Never mind that we're all getting another shot at that beautiful Spinosaurus sculpt, a LOT of people have to be BABIES about it... :roll:

The info should be at their site. If not, I know that they have a phone number there. Call and ask.

@UltramanGoji: There's a difference between having an opinion and whining. We see BOTH all the time on the SHMA thread...
