Hasbro revealed a brand new Power Rangers Lightning Collection release this week, a two pack featuring two of the big bads from the MMPR series - Lord Zedd and Rita Repulsa.

In another Hasbro reveal, the upcoming Star Wars Black Series Zorii Bliss was confirmed to include a removable plate on her helmet, revealing the figures eyes underneath - as seen in The RIse of Skywalker
NECA have shared the following image on their social media channels, and it seems to confirm that they will be expanding their 8 inch action figures from cult 1988 movie They Live to include John Nada - as played by Rowdy Roddy Piper.
We would imagine the full reveal will take place at New York Toy Fair next weekend.
Wonder Festival Winter 2020
Over in Japan the Winter Wonder Festival had the key Far East Toy companies revealing a number of new products.
Kaiyodo had a brand new Cable prototype on display in their Yamaguchi Revoltech line.

DC was also represented by Medicom with new MAFEX figures of Batman from the Hush series and a new Joker from The Dark Knight Returns
McFarlane Video Games
The current route of McFarlane reveals seems to be Amazon, with no press details - just a new pre order page going live.
This week we found out about two new Doom! figures from McFarlane via Amazon. A repaint of the Doom Slayer figure, now representing the Phobos Armour. There is then a brand new figure in the shape of the Doom Marauder.
And then over in their Call of Duty camp, we have a new recruit coming in the shape of Simon "Ghost" Riley from Modern Warfare. This new version of Riley includes the usual weaponry and a removable poncho.
The next DC release in Mezco's One:12 Collective line of figures has been confirmed as Harvey Dent / Two-Face. The figure includes three head options, a wealth of weaponry as well as soft goods suit and bandages to wrap around his scarred face
