If you’re looking for another opportunity to get Fisted by Mattycollector (groan, I know) then here’s your chance. In another “show off your collection” contest, Mattel is offering up four Masters of the Universe Classics Fisto figures, signed by Toy Guru and Terry Higuchi. If you weren’t a Club Eternia subscriber in 2012, chances are you weren’t able to get him, at least off of the Mattycollector site.
Since the Matty team plans on announcing the winners at Toy Fair, time is short – so get snapping and submit your entry before the contest closes on Thursday, February 6.
Fisto Contest 1/27 – 2/6
Enter to Win a Signed Fisto™ Figure
What’s a whole lot better than a knuckle sandwich? How about getting your hands on a highly popular Fisto™ figure! Send us your best shot of your Masters of the Universe® toy collection and you could be one of four lucky winners. Here’s how…
Our line is entering its sixth year, and we want to see how impressive your collection has become. Show us how creative you are at displaying your figures. Who has the prime spot front and center? Who’s conspiring in the back? Who’s in your army? (You do have an army, right?) We’re looking for originality, enthusiasm, and that true collector spirit.
This highly popular figure sold out faster than you can say “five fierce fingers” when it was released in February 2012 and has not been available since. But, we convinced our marketing and design departments to part with four figures from their own personal collections, and we’ll award them to the most deserving fans based on the entries we receive. These figures are new, still in the box, and signed by our own Toy Guru Scott Neitlich and the figure’s designer Terence Higuchi.
Make sure you read ALL the rules (click here to get the forms you need) and submit them to us with your photo as a JPG. We’ll select the winners and announce them at the New York Toy Fair and on MattyCollector.com on or before February 17, 2014. The winning photos will be also posted (#FistoContest) for enhanced glory and bragging rights.

Toys R Us is running a special promotion – take an extra 20% off of items already on clearance. There’s 151 action figure items that qualify, including this exclusive Marvel Universe X-Factor 6-pack - for just $27.98 when you include the extra discount. The regular price is $44.99.
Unlike the Marvel Legends X-Men set coming out next month (also exclusive to Toys R Us), this set excludes Beast – but it does come with two villains that were created in the X-Factor comic – Mr. Sinister and Apocalypse.
A powerful group of X-MEN goes undercover to form a new team. Posing as humans, they will hunt down mutants, not to do them harm, but to secretly ensure their survival. These courageous heroes are known as: X-Factor!
With CYCLOPS as their fearless X-Factor leader, JEAN GREY as their telekinetic mind reader, ANGEL as the vigilant winged warrior and ICEMAN as the ice-wielding controller of cold, the X-Factor team seems to be ready for almost anything. But are they ready to take on the immortal APOCALYPSE and the devious MR. SINISTER villains? Only you can tell!

Our friend Luke is running a sale this week at Luke’s Toy Store, and even if you’re not a die-hard fan of Minimates, there is probably something there you’ll want. The sale covers all merchandise and it’s 10% off any order over $50. Of course, Luke got his start on Minimates, and there’s a fair amount of them that are great deals even without the 10% off extra. For example, the first and second Alpha Flight Minimates box sets are on sale for just $6 each. There’s lots of deals across the Diamond Select Toys Minimates brands.

It might be a bit early for Spring Cleaning, but I suppose you can file this under New Year’s Resolutions. My wife has been on me about the growing pile of action figures that has me fearing that a camera crew from Hoarders will show up. So expect some Free Stuff giveaways and eBay auctions to help put a dent in the plastic hazard in our home office.
Up right now on eBay is a set of the exclusive Marvel Legends Thunderbolts from SDCC last year. I picked up extras for fellow collectors but this one never found a home. You guys play with your action figures, right? This set will be complete but will ship loose – that should save you a few bucks over the auctions that include the packaging. And if you win, shoot me a message on eBay that you found the auction here on AFP, and I’ll cut 10% off the final price. Thanks for looking!
I am amazed that Entertainment Earth continues to have daily deals. Today’s is for a set of two figures from NECA’s Lone Ranger series for %25.20 (that’s 30%off) – and of course those two figures are of Tonto and the Lone Ranger. The second wave features a bird cage accessory for Tonto, and an unmasked head sculpt for the Lone Ranger.
What’s more amazing is that the pairing of Gore Verbinki and Johnny Depp produced such a dud. I suppose their collaboration on Pirates of the Caribbean declined throughout the series, but they had returned to form with Rango. But I guess when you make a Tonto movie and call it the Lone Ranger, it’s bound to disappoint a few people.
The Lone Ranger 7-Inch Series 2 Action Figure Set:
- The Lone Ranger and Tonto ride again!
- Detailed figures out of 2013′s western movie The Lone Ranger.
- Series 2 set includes 2 articulated action figures.
- You get Johnny Depp’s Tonto and Armie Hammer’s Lone Ranger!
- Featuring over 20 points of articulation, these Lone Ranger 7-Inch Action Figures are superbly detailed! They come to you from 2013′s western movie The Lone Ranger that stars Johnny Depp and Armie Hammer, and with each remarkable figure standing 7-inches tall, they make terrific display pieces for home or work. Ride again with Tonto and The Lone Ranger! Ages 14 and up.
This Series 2 set contains 2 individually packaged action figures (subject to change):
- 1x Tonto with Birdcage
- 1x Lone Ranger Unmasked
Pose Native American spirit-warrior Tonto and Lone Ranger in nearly any way you wish!

Gotta love the easy to enter contests from Diamond Select Toys, especially when it’s a cool prize like the Marvel Select Jane Foster and a Thor prototype from Thor: the Dark World. Remember, you’ve got to like the picture on Facebook (you can always share or like this article too – we don’t mind!) and email your address to DST.
I do like that the height difference between Chris Hemsworth and Natalie Portman are represented in the figures – although the proper comparison might be seen on this Graham Norton clip with the two Thor stars and their action figures.

Can you believe Entertainment Earth is *still* running daily deals for the holidays? They started this so long ago that I must have refreshed that page at least a hundred times. Today’s deal is for the DC Collectibles Super Heroes vs. Super Villains 7-pack. At $70 (that’s 30% off the regular price) it’s the best deal you’ll get on figures that are now normally priced at $20 and up. That is, if you don’t already have a bunch of them, or do just want some shiny repaints.
You need just $5 more to trigger the free shipping for $75 deal, which, admittedly, is tougher than it seems. I found a chuckle-inducing G.I. Joe Retaliation Snake Eyes Ninjac-Cucks Nunchucks for $12.99. Or you could go for a slightly more practical LEGO Star Wars Darth Vader Flashlight for $9.99. Happy shopping!
Hey, procrastinator! Yeah, you! This Kids Woot deal for a LEGO Ninjago set could be just what the ninja ordered. It’s over half off, which is pretty rare when it comes to LEGO, and you can build a ton of different models with it. And, most importantly, you can get it by X-Mas if you use 2-day shipping.
This deal is good until 10PM PST today, so if you let your natural tendencies win out, you may actually have to go to a bricks and mortar store to do your holiday shopping. The horror!

Holy clearance, Batman! The Batman Classic TV Series action figures from Mattel are on sale at Amazon.com, except for the Penguin, who remains at $15.99. The singles are $8.99 or 9.99 each, besides the Joker, who is at $4.99 – that’s so low, he doesn’t qualify for Amazon Prime shipping on his own. If you’ve been resisting, now might be a good time to pick these up.
I know it’s the holiday season and that we should expect sales, but I’m exhibiting my crotchety old man ways and hating on the overuse of terms like Black Friday, Cyber Monday, and the like. A couple weeks ago, I was at my front door screaming at the neighborhood kids to get off my lawn when I heard about Brown Thursday and Mattycollector’s 8 Day Cyber Monday Week that started on Tuesday, and nearly had an aneurysm.

This weekend, you’ll be able to pick up a bunch of stuff from DC Collectibles at Shop DC Entertainment’s “Black Friday Returns!” sale. For example, the MAD Just-Us-League figures are back on sale for over half off. But there’s even more stuff – 337 items in total on sale, including action figures, busts, statues, phone cases, and clothing. The sale features DC merchandise from other partners too, including Mattel (Man of Steel and DC Unlimited stuff), Square Enix Play Arts Kai figures from Arkham, DC LEGO sets, and DC Mimobots from Mimoco, to name a few. There’s even the Hot Toys Camo Tumbler.
The best discounts are on the DC Collectibles stuff, as you might expect. I’m just trying to prep myself for the next couple of Black Fridays until Christmas (which thankfully falls on a Wednesday) is over. Bah humbug!
