Happy #SatTOYday everyone!
And a belated Happy Thanksgiving to our friends and readers in the US. The Thanksgiving period and the following Black Friday activity saw a pretty quiet week for Action Figure news. We did get the full reveal of Mezco's One:12 Ghost Rider and Hell Cycle, with pre-orders now open. The Mando Mondays continued, with two new Vintage Collection reveals this week.
We have a new MAFEX Armoured Batman incoming in 2021, and in the same DC Universe we saw McFarlane unveil another Batman build-a-figure wave for Spring 202. NECA, meanwhile, were in teasing mode this week with a new image for Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles.
In reviews we take a look at the new Star Wars Black Series Incinerator Trooper, Clone Wars Ahsoka Tano and the Doctor Who History of the Daleks Set #4. Stay tuned for many more reviews in our December advent calendar...
Mezco One:12 Ghost Rider
This week saw the full presentation, and pre-order, from Mezco for their One:12 Collective Ghost Rider with Hellcycle. The figure will feature a light up head for Ghost Rider and lights and sounds for the Bike along with flame FX pieces. The Ghost Rider will be a Summer 2021 release.
McFarlane DC Multiverse
The next McFarlane DC Multiverse Wave was revealed this week with a new Build-A-Figure line taken from the Death Metal storyline. The wave will include Batman, Superman and Wonder Woman as seen in Death Metal. There is also a Robin King, and the build-a-figure is a Darkfather. This new line should hit in Spring 2021.
We are well into the swing of Mando Mondays now, and this weeks Action Figure reveals were in the Vintage Collection 3.75 inch line from Hasbro. Coming in Spring 2021 are a new Vintage carded The Child, complete with his original hover pram, a frog and a variant head expression compared to the other two releases (HasLab Razor Crest and Din D'jarin set). Joining The Child is Greef Karga in his Season 2 outfit.
Medicom MAFEX Armoured Batman
Medicom will be expanding the Batman Dark Knight Returns line of 1/12 MAFEX figures with an Armoured Batman coming in October 2021. The figure features three head options, soft goods cloak as well as pistol and other accessories.
NECA's new Ultimate Scream Ghostface figure is edging ever close to release, and this week we were shown the packaging for the figure ahead of his December 2020 release. Ghostface features four mask options, representing looks from across the Scream movie series, as well as a host of weapons.
NECA also had a Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles tease for us this week with the following image of what looks to be the disguised Turtles from the animated series. This corresponds to some price tickets found in Target in the US for a Disguised Turtle Set for $99. We await full confirmation.
This Weeks Action Figure Reviews...
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 (Action Force) 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...
