It’s been a big week for geeks. May the Fourth and “Captain America: Civil War” all in one week? We might need an extra long break. Given the times, it makes sense that places like Sideshow Collectibles and Hot Toys came out with plenty of new Star Wars looks. Meanwhile, McFarlane Toys debuted new “The Walking Dead” figures, Nightwing earned the Square Enix treatment and much more!
STAR WARS | When it comes to May the Fourth debuts, Sideshow Collectibles certainly made their presence known this week. In addition to showing off the company-exclusive Ralph McQuarrie Darth Vader statue, the company also showed off R2-D2 and C-3PO in the Legendary Scale which means they’ll be huge in your place. Finally, feast your eyes on the Kylo Ren Premium Format Figure which comes with a malleable cape and an alternate right fist and lightsaber hilt, but only if you buy the Sideshow exclusive version!
STAR WARS | Hot Toys also celebrated the geeky holiday with a trio of teases for upcoming collectibles. Kylo Ren will mark the first appearance of a “The Force Awakens” character in the quarter scale line of figures while his dad and furry best pal make their way into the sixth scale line where they will eventually be joined by Jedi Master Yoda.
THE WALKING DEAD | A pair of new action figures based on AMC’s “The Walking Dead” got a nice debut over on the Nerdist this week! McFarlane Toys will add Abraham and Daryl to the 7-inch, red Color Tops series which McFarlane himself talked to CBR about previously during Toy Fair. They look pretty good for guys who look like roaming snacks to zombies!
NIGHTWING | The most popular former-acrobat in comics looks super cool as an action figure from Square Enix, don’t you think? US distributors Sideshow Collectibles just posted the Nightwing Play Arts -KAI- action figure for pre-order which means we got to ogle photos of the super-posable Dick Grayson toy. The former Batman sidekick ships in the fall and comes with a Nightwingarang, Escrima sticks and extra hands!
MEZCO | Recently, Mezco dropped a variety of different first looks. First off, check out the full reveal and pre-order information for the One: 12 Collective Green Arrow figure which we saw a preview of not long ago. Meanwhile, the Living Dead Doll line will integrate horror movie favorites like Sam from “Trick ‘r Treat” and Ash from “Evil Dead 2.” Finally, the star of the classic manga and anime, Gigantor will earn a 24-inch-tall figure hitting later this year with variants nodding to the robot’s long history in entertainment.
UNDERWORLD REVOLUTION | Finally, for fans of film franchises with vampires fighting werewolves minus the overwrought love story, dig the Selene Star Ace figure based on “Underworld: Evolution.” The 1/6th scale figure comes with a solid Kate Beckinsale likeness plus hand guns, crossbow, sword and a variety of other weapons to slice and dice her way through your monster toy collection.
