Toy News 25/25/2021 – Marvel Legends Loki Sylvie, McFarlane Batman ’66
Welcome to Toy Aisle, the regular round of io9-up from the newest and more plastic-based news. This week: Loki brings his ultimate mystery to the forefront of games, McFarlane becomes retro with The Bright Knight, and Donald Duck (and his grandchildren) get some adorablely animated figures. Check it out!
Beast Kingdom Dynamic 8ction Heroes Donald Duck and Huey, Dewey, and Louie Figures
March us say a tearful goodbye to Tuck Duck… back … and if it’s too much for you to endure in the midst of a pandemic, you can fill those Huey, Dewey, Louie and Donald Duck sized holes in your heart with the ninth scale Huey, Dewey, Louie, and Daughters of Donald Duck from the Beast Kingdom. The latest additions to the company’s Dynamic 8ction Heroes line feature all 12 articulation points, and while the three hens stand each three inches tall, Uncle Donald is a little over six inches. You can pre-order Huey, Dewey and Louie in a pack of three for $ 90, but Donald is $ 72 all on its own.
Lego Super Mario Bowser’s Airship Expansion Set
With decades worth of games and adventures to draw from, Lego shows no signs of slowing down the expansion of its Super Mario interactive playsets. The latest updates include the addition of Luigi and the ability to have two players navigating a brick-built level at the same time, but more exciting than that is this 1,152-piece Bowser’s Airship set with a compact flying mode that transforms and folds out into a longer fully-playable course. The $100 expansion set, which is available for pre- order now and shipping on August 1, also includes Kamek, Rocky Wrench, the Goomba figures, and a giant mechanical version of Bowser’s hand trying to drive Mario out of the mess.
Mezco Toyz Mezco Designer Series Deluxe Alien
If you want an HR Giger nightmare that watches you all day from your gaming platform, then by all means take the latest addition to Mezco’s Designer Series: a seven-inch high version of Foreigners Xenomorphic. It is limited to only 10 articulation points, which is probably why you can pre-order one for $ 50, with shipments scheduled for early 2022, but what is missing is offset by details that include an external jaw embedded with another pop-out flat pharyngeal jaw inside, interchangeable arms and legs, a possible tail, an ovomorphic egg which can be opened and closed, and even a facehugger can throw you over your unsuspecting action figures.
McFarlane Toys Batman ’66 Figures, Batcave and Batmobile
McFarlane has been throughout the DC Multiverse with his, well, DC Multiverse line, but now a new range of exclusive Target games is firmly rooted in Dark Knight’s more youthful past: specifically, a new six-inch line scaled (contrasted to seven inches of McFarlane’s other primary DC product) themed games around the beloved 1966 Batman TV series. Starting with three figures depicting Batman by Adam West, Robin by Burt Ward, and the iconic Joker by Cesar Romero, the range also includes a full-scale Batmobile capable of staging the dynamic duo, as well as a game replica–about 24 “wideof the Batcave and its band of computer benches as seen in the show. The line is scheduled to arrive at Target in August[[[[Toyark]
Come back again Dexter Rightr Sixth Scale Figure of Morgan
If you are one of the many fans of the series Dexter disappointed by the finale that saw the cute serial killer leave his family and move to Oregon to become a lumberjack, you now have the opportunity to recreate the character’s fate however you see fit. A fully articulated version of Michael C. Hall’s 12-inch Flash Back. The figure includes two robes – one an exceptional citizen on the law side, and the other an apron-wearing serial killer preparing to deal with a victim – as well as two interchangeable head sculptures, nine hands, and accessories that they include a full-roll of stocked knives and a box of blood slides. Pre-orders are available now, with the figure of $ 280 reaching sometime in early 2022.
Hasbro Monopoly: Target Edition
You can finally experience the joy of navigating the game section in Target for the new versions of Monopoly at home with a Target-themed version of Monopoly which has players buying random things on Target instead of buying property. It makes sense, doesn’t it? As a slightly less confusing version of a Christopher Nolan movie, the latest version of the gameplay includes miniature versions of Target’s iconic red baskets, but instead of being reimbursed every time you go GO, players get objects in his basket and earn savings tokens, and at the end of the game the player who saved the most money wins. Pre-orders are available starting today for $ 25, with in-store availability starting in August Stay tuned for the inevitable Walmart and Amazon version later.
Hasbro Marvel Legends Loki Sylvie
Loki it may be only halfway there, but that doesn’t stop Hasbro from mocking games from the time-consuming adventure. While Loki in his “Variant” jacket provided by TVA was already transformed into a figure for the first wave of Disney + inspired games, now Hasbro has mocked who it is carrying Sophia Di Martino’s mysterious Sylvie is on the line too. While no major details have been released, the figure comes with its sword, and at least one dynamic hand to pose enchanting its enemies … and frenemies. The figure is due to release for fall, and will sell for the usual Marvel Legends price of about $ 22-25.[[[[Toyark]
Hog Ball Wing Wild
Even the basic physics of high school will tell you that drilling a giant hole through an airplane will severely impede its ability to fly. But Hog Wild has radically rethought the concept of the classic Nerf foam football with the Ballu Alatu, a hollow tube that can apparently surpass a traditional pig skin and fly farther and faster, even if you’re not an experienced quarterback. The Wing Ball is essentially a single aerodynamic wing that is curved so that the two ends meet and stick together to form a tube. No matter its orientation toward the ground, it generates elevation, and if you have a launch arm that also serves as a cannon, the $ 15 game can apparently hit speeds of up to 88 km per hour.
