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. [/rant]
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!
I had no idea there was such a thing as Ninja Day, but today, December 5th, is it! And Sideshow’s marketing team is right on top of it, offering a $10 coupon code, NINJADAY13, on (you guessed it!) ninja items.
Woah it’s Ninja Day! (We know, it snuck up on us too)
Use coupon code NINJADAY13 & SAVE $10 on select Ninja collectibles!
Gotta love Sideshow!
It’s already the Year of the Snake, and soon will be the Year of the Horse (the next Chinese New Year is January 31, 2014, for those of you planning toy production at Chinese factories) – that might explain why Amazon has the Transformers Year of the Dragon Ultimate Optimus Prime as part of its Cyber Monday Deals Week. It’s discounted to $42.49 from a list price of $89.99 until 2:20PM PST, or while supplies last.
I’m not a huge Transformers fan, so I hadn’t seen this humongous beast before – but apparently this repaint was an Asian exclusive that was available in 2012, naturally, since that was the Year of the Dragon. Gung hay fat choy! (That’s Happy New Year in Chinese, you heathens!)
Year of the Dragon Ultimate Optimus Prime
- Optimus Prime and the Omega Combat Armor combine to form Ultimate Optimus Prime
- Biggest Optimus Prime toy!
- Equipped with the incredibly powerful Mechtech weapons system!
- In robot mode,Trailer converts to the Omega Combat Armor!
- Wings extend over 55 centimeters!

Amazon Cyber Monday Deals Week continues with another toy deal today – Hasbro’s Vintage Collection Star Wars Slave I, Boba Fett’s ship that was rereleased as an Amazon exclusive. Regularly $69.99, this deal has it for $41.99 until 1PM PST, or while supplies last.
Are you a MOC collector? Amazon has been knocked for not properly packing the Slave I, but supposedly this has been corrected with an extra shipping box. No disintegrations? As you wish.
Slave I – Boba Fett’s Spaceship
Re-enact some of the coolest adventures in the epic film The Empire Strikes Back with this incredible Slave I Boba Fett’s Spaceship vehicle! Put a figure (sold separately) in the swiveling cockpit and load the vehicle’s missiles and bombs. Then pivot its wings for takeoff and send the ship into battle! When enemies attack, rotate the cannon to fire at them, then release the bombs on them! Put the included Han Solo in Carbonite figure in the detention cell or the cargo bay for a mission to collect a bounty. The action is going to be epic with your Slave I Boba Fett’s Spaceship vehicle!

Toynami recently opened the Toynami Shop, their online store. And low and behold, it’s stocked with exclusives from San Diego Comic Con and Comikaze. I can tell you, if I’d known these items would be available online way after the shows were over, it would have saved my wife some stress. She is nuts over the Sanrio / Street Fighter plush mashups, and braved the insane lines at SDCC for the Badtz Ryu exclusive. Then when we figured out we couldn’t make it to Comikaze, we had to figure out a way to get our hands on the Hello Kitty Blanka. I also heard that a lot of Futurama fans were unable to get the hook-up at SDCC for the Gender Bender set.
So, if you missed out, get them now! Need your arm twisted? For Cyber Monday, Toynami is offering free shipping on all orders until December 6.
