From Jade Giants and Caped Crusaders to bumbling bandits and Minimates, this week had plenty to offer collectible fans. Hot Toys showed off a new Avenger in the Hulk, Sideshow Collectibles featured a darker version of Batman, Valiant and “Walking Dead” Minimates debuted and a “Home Alone” tease from NECA were just a few of the bits of information dropped on the general public, but there’s also so much more!
AVENGERS: AGE OF ULTRON | Hot Toys just keeps rolling right along with their “Avengers: Age of Ultron” action figure reveals. This week, they posted images of both the regular and deluxe versions of Hulk on their Facebook page. Both come with the same basic figure, but the deluxe also includes angry and screaming heads as well as an “interchangeable ‘Hulk smash’ pose upper body.”
BATMAN | Gotham’s Dark Knight earns his nickname with this new 1/6th scale action figure from Sideshow Collectibles. Unlike the previous version which was based on the character’s blue and gray costume, this one focuses on the black and gray one. Called Batman Gotham Knight, the figure comes with a trio of masks, cowls and faceplates for all kinds of grimacing options. Bats also features a grappling gun with ripe, batarangs and even a fist wielding the Kryptonite ring given to him for safe keeping by Superman. The piece ships starting in October.

DC BOOKENDS | DC Comics heroes are ready to keep your books upright thanks to Icon Heroes’ series of bookends.

The bookends will ship at the end of the year.
TEENAGE MUTANT NINJA TURTLES | While wandering around New York Toy Fair, we spotted Good Smile Company’s James Jean-inspired Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles statues. Now the Raphael piece, which stands about 10.5 inches tall, is available for pre-order on Entertainment Earth. Raph comes with his signature sai and ships in August.

HOT TOYS | Hot Toys recently announced a pair of interesting new projects in the works. First off, they will produce high quality 1/6 scale action figures based on “Terminator Genisys” which will debut this summer. Meanwhile, the company is launching a new initiative called the Artist Mix Collection. Details are scarce, but the first batch will take its cues from “Avengers: Age of Ultron.”
STAR WARS | In anticipation of the Dec. 18 release of “Star Wars: The Force Awakens,” Funko decided to reach into the past for a few collectible offerings. In this case, they will bring the Slave Leia Pop Vinyl out of retirement in April. The newer versions come with a different box to denote its more recent creation.
MASTERS OF THE UNIVERSE | During Toy Fair Mattycollector
announced a new six-month subscription plan focusing primarily on characters specific to the 2000s relaunch of He-Man.

The 3-inch figures come blind boxed and can be purchased individually or by the case.
BREAKING BAD | “Breaking Bad” might have finished its epic run on AMC, but that doesn’t mean fans can’t continue Walter White’s adventures on their own thanks to this 1/6th scale figure from Threezero. The Heisenberg figure stands a foot tall and comes with hat, glasses, sunglasses, windbreaker, bloody stacks of cash and a hand that can hold the accompanying gun.
GAMES OF THRONES | The “Game of Thrones” cuteness continues to roll right along thanks to Funko’s line of Pop Vinyl toys. The April-shipping fifth wave includes Oberyn Martell, The Mountain, Grey Worm, Wight and a 6-inch version of Viserion, the White Dragon.
HOME ALONE | Leading into Toy Fair, NECA tweeted out a teaser image for upcoming products.
