Happy #SatTOYday everyone!
And after all the excitement of New York Toy Fair we are back to normal with Issue 115 of the SatTOYday Roundup. In this week's issue we look at a new Doctor Who set coming to B&M stores in the UK. We checkout the SH Figuarts offerings for the Black Widow movie. There are new Fortnite 6 inch figures incoming from Jazwares. And more besides...
Doctor Who is back at B&M
New Doctor Who product is heading into B&M this month. Up first is a new Doctor and TARDIS set featuring the 3rd Doctor from Monster of Peladon.
Also being re-released are the three Big Finish Doctor and Dalek Sets from 2019. These are all due to start arriving from 4th March and will retail at £19.99.
Marvel Legends Vintage Grey Beast
In another surprise announcement, Hasbro sent out details of a new Vintage carded Beast this week. The Grey Beast will include two heads, alternative hands, reading glasses and a book. He is due for a June release and pre-orders are already up at most UK stockists.
MAFEX Joker & Spider-man
Medicom have released the promotional images and details for their next two 6 inch releases.
Up first is Spider-Man in his Stealth Suit from Far from Home. He comes with two heads as well as interchangeable options for each head. The usual web shooting accessories and hand options are also included. He will hit stores in November 2020.
The Joker, from Return of the Dark Knight, features two head sculpts and a knife accessory. He is also a November 2020 release
We are also moving closer to the next MCU movie, Black Widow, with SH Figuarts releasing images of two new 6 inch scale figures from the movie - Black Widow and Taskmaster.
Widow comes with two handguns, her batons and what appears to be wrist stingers FX pieces.
Taskmaster comes with a couple of good options - up and down - as well as his shield, a bow, a sword and a handgun.
Mezco Mr. Freeze
Mezco have released the full details for their One:12 Collective DC Mr. Freeze 6 inch scale action figure who is due to ship between September and November 2020.
The figure features two head, alternative hands, two weapons and a light up feature for his removable helmet and his back pack.
Less than 2-weeks after showing off new Fortnite 6 inch Legendary action figures at Toy Fair 2020, this same new product from Jazwares is now in stock at Amazon US for pre-order with a mid-March 2020 release date. There are some paid affiliate links in the following article.
This new wave includes Sentinel, as reported last week, and then figures of Galaxy, Ruin and Beef Boss. Each 6 inch highly articulated figure includes weapon(s), harvesting tool, back bling and some new consumable accessories in certain cases.

About Me : As a child of the 70's and 80's I grew up in a golden age for action figures and in my youth bought and sold myself through collections of Star Wars, G.I. Joe and M.A.S.K. while also dabbling in He-Man, Transformers and Ghostbusters. Roll forward and I am now reliving that Youth with the action figures of today and am a collector and fan of the larger 6-8 inch figures from my favourite movie and TV licences - including the ones mentioned above, but also the Marvel Cinematic Universe, Doctor Who and the Aliens. I launched The Mephitsu Archives in 2015 with a view of creating a UK focused site or these figures where fans can pick up the latest action figure news, read reviews and get information on where to buy their figures and what is currently on store shelves. I hope I am delivering that to you guys...
