A couple of years ago, Legend Toys got into a bit of trouble with their Steve Jobs 1/6th scale figure of Steve Jobs, who had just passed away. The company was able to market the figure (one is sitting on my desk right now) and now the company is offering up a new version of Steve Jobs – or rather, a younger version of the business and marketing brain behind Apple.
Simon Baz officially made his appearance this week in Green Lantern #0 and it seems that DC is betting on him being a popular character for they have announced he will soon have his own figure. Take the jump for the first image!
The Legend of Zelda may be one of the most beloved game franchises ever, but compared to other games, LoZ merchandise has been relatively hard to find. This is why I’m overjoyed to see that someone is finally creating a Link action figure that his highly detailed, highly articulated, and arrives in October!
Diamond Select Toys has released the first image of Hawkeye from the upcoming Avengers movie.
What do you say to the 8.25-inch Colossus action figure? “How’s the weather up there?” comes to mind.

Wow. Here’s something I didn’t expect to see come across the virtual desk at Major Spoilers – The Steve Jobs Action Figure. Created by Chinese manufacturer Dragon in Dreams, the action figure depicts the late Apple CEO in miniature form.
Diamond Select Toys has announced that the company is revisiting old Spider-Man foes, and have decided that the Green Goblin will be the next character to get the Marvel Select Figure treatment.
The new Green Goblin figure is based on the Marvel Milestones statue of the character that Diamond Select Toys released back in 2004, featuring a more modern take on the villain than our initial, classic interpretation. When not posed on hie Goblin Glider base, he stands 7 inches tall and features Marvel Select’s standard 16 points of articulation.
This probably has nothing to do with the upcoming Amazing Spider-Man movie, but it is going to be one of those figures/statues/toys that will look awesome on the shelf.

MattyCollector is showing off the packaging for the upcoming Masters of the Universe Classics Battleground Teela figure. The warrior goddess certainly looks different than her ’80s animated version, which I’m sure isn’t going to sit well with a lot of MOTU fans.
