Remember Toy Fair This Weekend

If you are one of the lucky few to be in New York next week, don’t forget the annual Toy Fair will be going on from February 17 to the 20th. I really wish I could go because I’m very excited about seeing the next way of the DC Universe Classics figures, including the giant build a figure Grundy. One of the surprising figure sets that continue to be released is the JLU figures from a television series that has been off the air for a couple of years. I always make a beeline to the toy aisle of the…

Khaaaan!

Diamond Select Toys has announced the next new figure from retro-inspired Star Trek cloth figures will be Khan Noonien Singh. Unlike the Kirk, Spock, and Klingon figures that were based on molds from the original Mego line, Khan is a brand new sculpt that features the same level as detail as the rest of the line. Genetically engineered during Earth’s Eugenics Wars centuries earlier, Khan attempted to gain the crew’s trust and take over the Enterprise for his own purposes. Barely stopped by Captain James T. Kirk, Khan was exiled to the distant Ceti Alpha V and forgotten. Refusing to…

Warcraft and Batman Toys Delayed

DC Comics has announced the World of Warcraft: Series 2 action figures and the Uni-Formz: Batman (modern) figure have been canceled and will be resolicited. The Warcraft items will be resolicited in the November Previews and will arrive in stores in June 2008, while the Uni-Formz: Batman has no resolicitation date.

Get Your Hands Off Me You Filthy Ape!

I was drifting through my local pop culture store the other day, when I happend across the Kirk and Klingon figures from Diamond Select Toys.  You know, the ones that are made from the original Mego molds from the 1970s? The company is at it again with their latest 8-inch figures – Mego’s Planet of the Apes.  Looks like they’ll be using the same molds (no pictures from the company at this time), and will roll out the Cornelius and Ursus figures first.  Later, the line will feature Dr. Zaius and Dr. Zira figures. What? No Charlton Heston with “Finally,…

Season One Riker Figure On the Way

Diamond Select Toys has announced an exclusive Season One William T. Riker action figure as part of the Star Trek: The Next Generation 25th 20th Anniversary. Holy crap, has it been 20 years since the debut of The Next Generation? I suddenly feel really really old. For those wanting to get their mitts on the figure head over to Suncoast and F.Y.E. Although with the recent troubles Suncoast has had, you better get there in the next 30 days before the company declares bankruptcy. via Diamond Select Toys

Todd McFarlane to Redo Wizard of Oz Movie

Remember a few years ago when Todd McFarlane released a line of toys with his interpretation of L. Frank Baum’s Wizard of Oz?  Now that toy idea is going to be turned into a movie with McFarlane producing.  Josh Olson, who did a History of Violence will write. But I don’t think we’ll be seeing a bondage Dorothy. “I saw those toys, and Dorothy as some bondage queen isn’t something I want to do,” Olson told Daily Variety. “The appealing thing about the Baum books to me is how wildly imaginative they are. There are crazy characters from amazing places.…
