I saw this figure in person at Toy Fair this past weekend and reached out to Funko. They sent along this high-res pic of The Rocketeer from their Legacy Collection 6-inch super-articulated action figure line. Nice to see that there’s a mid-torso articulation point hidden under that removable jacket flap.
I wonder if the “1” signifies that more characters are possible – I’d love to see a Betty / Jenny. Peevy, not quite as much. You can pre-order The Rocketeer at Entertainment Earth for $19.99. He’s expected to take flight in June this year.
Whether you’ve ordered a set or case online or found the Marvel Legends All-Father wave at retail, chances are you’ve got one or two of the most excellent Build-a-Figures from the wave, Odin or Old Man Thor, waiting to be completed. Right now, you’re in luck – Amazon has the likely candidates you need to complete your BAFs in stock:
For good measure, Sentry and Machine Man are also available at the $21.99 price, but Scarlet Witch and Captain Marvel are jacked up in price (who says no one wants female action figures?) Update: Captain Marvel is back down to $21.99 – get her while you can! Update 2: The entire All-Father wave is available for $19.99 at Toys R Us. Thanks to Pmizzey for the heads up!
I had an extra Hawkeye from my case and got Iron Fist a couple days ago, so now I’ve got Thor on his way with that last leg for my Old Man Thor BAF. All around, I’m very pleased with this wave and the two BAFs – more pics soon.
Remember watching the Adam West Batman show and ending up with a cliffhanger – only to miss the following episode? That’s what it felt like waiting for news about Mattel’s Batman 1966 line. A nostalgic favorite for many, the line hit some snags with sell-through and its fate was uncertain.
At least until this past weekend, when Mattel announced the Batman 1966 line would be returning to retail. And in a fitting twist, much of it would be reruns. The 6-inch figure assortment is returning with no new additions to the line-up. The one new 6-incher, the Yvonne Craig Batgirl, shows up in a 3-pack with Batman and Robin. Speaking of the Dynamic Duo, they return with the Batmobile. And Adam West gets a headsculpt in a new deluxe playset entitled “To the Batcave, Batman!”

It’s no secret that I’m a big fan of what Mezco has done with its One:12 Collective line – and that’s having held just one production figure in hand. I’m psyched to get Judge Dredd when he becomes available later this year, but I’m even more pumped that Mezco is making an in-scale Lawmaster for him to ride down perps.
I went back to the Mezco booth yesterday to shoot a fly-by of the Lawmaster. Enjoy!

The Four Horsemen have a booth at Toy Fair for the first time this year, and with the bulk of the show behind them they were admittedly a little weary. But mention of the Mythic Legions Kickstarter campaign quickly got them animated again.
As we approach the end of the first week of the campaign, they are approaching 2/3rds of their funding target. To put this in perspective, funding for Mythic Legions passed the threshold for their first Kickstarter, for the Gothitropolis Ravens, in the first three days, but the target for this campaign is much higher – $140K versus $65K. They’re pleased with the progress thus far.

It’s been really fun watching these Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles status by James Jean get developed over time. When I first saw the four of them a few shows back, only Leonardo was painted – the rest were still gray in the original casted resin. And each successive time I’ve seen them, another one would show up in full color. Now, with Donatello and Raphael finished, all four turtles are complete… and they look gorgeous!
