We may have just had the biggest geekgasm ever this past weekend with the Star Wars: The Force Awakens opening (saw it, loved it!) but this is some pretty good news to start the week. Even before a long time ago in a galaxy far, far away, I was a Star Trek fan.
Mezco’s announcement of a Star Trek Mr. Spock figure in their One:12 Collective line is hitting all the right spots in my Neutral Zone.
The second of Mondo’s 1/6 scale Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles is up for pre-order today – it’s the staff-wielding Donatello’s turn. I was lucky enough to pick up the subscription with Leonardo last month, but for those of us picking these up individually, Donnie is available in a regular version for $149.99 and an exclusive for $10 more.
Both are loaded with accessories, including both the cartoon purple and comics red masked heads, while the exclusive version, limited to 500 pieces, includes his Gravitic Equalizer.
Did you survive Force Friday? Now we’re on to the next step – Hasbro has teased us with their social media campaign for Star Wars: The Force Awakens with a pair of cool faction posters. As we revel in the latest Star Wars toys leading up to the opening of the new movie, Hasbro is asking us to make the fundamental decision – to “Choose Your Path” on the Force. Will it be with the Resistance on the Light Side of the Force, or with the First Order on the Dark Side?
So get on your favorite social media platforms and let your allegiance be known, with hashtags #ChooseLightSide and #ChooseDarkSide. It’s a great time to share pics of your Force Friday hauls, and also to follow AFP on Facebook, Google+, Twitter, and Instagram. May the Force be with you!
Target has released its picks for the top Star Wars products from The Force Awakens, and pitches that they can be your one stop for Star Wars. We all know that with all the retailer exclusives out there, if you want to complete your collection, you’ll be stopping everywhere. But Target will be the only one with Hasbro’s remote-controlled BB-8 droid.
Still, it’s nice to see some of the other items outside of our Black Series and LEGO updates – a Millenium Falcon drone looks like fun!
