It’s not technically the weekend yet, but some deals are too fun(ny) to pass up. Today’s Entertainment Earth daily deal is for Plastic Fantasy’s Jenna Jameson Jiggler – alliteration rules! For those of you who can’t remember too far back, Plastic Fantasy was a sister company of SOTA Toys back when Jerry Macaluso was the owner. They had a line of Adult Superstar action figures that featured removable clothing, just like the Jenna Jiggler’s top. Sadly, all that remains of that line (at least at EE) is the Jenna Jiggler – and you can get one for just $1, today only.
This item has features and themes that are for adults only. Ages 18 and up. Recommended for mature collectors.
- What’s shakin’, Jenna?
- The Jenna Jameson you know and love can bobble.
- Features a removable top!
You’ve seen a bobble head, but what if a figure bobbled at the waist? Well, here you go! The Jenna Jameson Dashboard Jiggler is an innovative bobble head that bobbles at the waist, creating the effect of Jenna shakin’ her thang just for you! She stands 4-inches tall. Features a removable top.
How can you resist a product with a description like that? The image on the EE site wasn’t too great, so I pulled some from an eBay auction for the Jenna Jiggler that sold for $22.99. I guess when you gotta have it, you go get it. If only that guy could have waited a couple of weeks… Happy shopping!
I have not seen The Amazing Spider-Man 2 yet, but have seen some of the previews and have the 6-inch figure from the Hasbro Spider-Man Legends line. The design is a big departure from the big-screen-unfriendly green and yellow costume from the comics, but is a bit too reminiscent of Mr. Freeze from the horrible Joel Schumacher Batman & Robin to give me good feelings about the movie. For those of you who’ve seen it – how was it?
Still, the figure looks to be incredibly rendered by Hot Toys, and with the addition of LED lights in what looks like both the head and hands, this should be a visually engaging figure for the shelves of Amazing Spidey 2 fans. I’m not sold yet (and probably won’t be unless the movie blows me away), but if you are, you can pre-order him when he shows up at Sideshow Toys. Last I checked, he’s not yet there.

Two action figure campaigns launched on Kickstarter yesterday. A few hours after posting our teaser for Vitruvian H.A.C.K.S. project, Boss Fight Studio got the green light from Kickstarter and opened up the Vitruvian H.A.C.K.S. campaign. And shortly thereafter, October Toys took their campaign for a Skeleton Warriors revival live. It’s pretty cool that in times when the big toy companies are having trouble getting licensed product to retail shelves, small independents are able to utilize the crowdfunding channel to get their products to collectors.

Boss Fight Studio, the design and sculpting group behind the recently over-funded Marauder Task Force Gaming Figures project, is getting ready to launch their own 4-inch action figures on Kickstarter. While the Marauder Task Force focused on the military genre and plans to expand into science fiction and superheros, Boss Fight Studio’s Vitruvian H.A.C.K.S. starts out in the fantasy genre with Greek warriors vs. the Gorgons, and plans to expand into other fantasy genres as well as outer space.
H.A.C.K.S. aspires to be more than an ordinary action figure line – Boss Fight Studio plans the line to be a system for easy army building and customizing. The name may evoke the combat you’ll be waging between the Greeks and the Gorgons, but officially it stands for “Highly Articulated Character Kit System.” And don’t make the mistake of thinking the name somehow besmirches the capabilities of the five principals of Boss Fight Studio; the three designers and two sculptors (one of them is our long-time pal, Doubledealer) are no hacks – they cut their teeth working at Hasbro on the big brands – G.I. JOE, Marvel, Star Wars, and more.

Captain America: The Winter Soldier fans – for today only, you can pick up Funko’s Pop! Heroes figures from the movie on sale from Entertainment Earth. Captain America, the Black Widow, and the Winter Soldier are about 3.75 inches tall, and will set you back just $6.50 each. Normally, they’re $9.99. Happy shopping!
With Masters of the Universe Classics winding down this year and next, it looks like Mattel is looking to make the most out of the MOTU property while there’s still folks visiting the Mattycollector site. Enter Baby Skeletor, loosely inspired by a Robot Chicken clip which explores some themes that might not have been appropriate if you were watching on Saturday morning back as a kid.
The clip (at the end of the post) - it might get a couple laughs out of you. But the Baby Skeletor doll will probably register a fair share of eye rolls when it goes on sale for $35 in a couple weeks, during the June sale at Mattycollector. I wasn’t a fan of Molarr the Eternian Dentist, but as a SDCC exclusive, maybe it worked for Mattel. I have a harder time seeing how this item will hit it big with MOTU fans. But what do I know? This won’t be the first entry in the category of strange dolls Mattel has actually made.

New pre-order listings at Entertainment Earth and BigBadToyStore have revealed an upcoming X-Men Marvel Legends wave as a Previews exclusive. This five figure wave features Wolverine, Magneto, Storm, Stryfe, Cyclops, with a Build-a-Figure Jubilee. First revealed a few weeks back in a Japanese magazine, this wave had been widely reported as a Toys R Us exclusive. With these listings, however, it appears that the X-Men will go the same route as the Wolverine Legends wave. As Previews exclusives, these will set you back – $179.99 for a case from Entertainment Earth and BBTS – $22.50 a figure. BBTS has a 5-figure set for $149.99 – a whopping $30 a figure.
It’s great to see the mini-BAF Jubilee that we first saw at San Diego Comic-Con last year and the Stryfe figure teased by the Hasbro Marvel team way back when finally make their way to shelves – but I will be missing the other figures that had been shown as part of the Jubilee wave. With themed waves being the norm now, it’s a challenge to see how those figures will get released.

We reported earlier today about Threezero’s Tyrion Lannister pre-order, but sibling company 3A Toys has also got a pre-order, going up later today. You can pre-order their Adventure Kartel Panda Mercs starting at 6PM PST at Bambaland. There’s a single, the Handsome Wu merc, for $140, or a 2-pack featuring Wu and F-Legion 6023 for $250 – although some people are speculating about the “Three Fat Tarts” title for the 2-pack.
3A originally planned to have this be the fourth of four AKLUB sets needed to get an exclusive MS Shadow, but reverted to an older plan to make the fourth set with the Zomb MD in a couple of months. So the Pandas are an independent release, with no ties to the AKLUB prereqs.
