Weekend Toy Run: Pre-Order the Sideshow DC Green Lantern


The Hot Toys figures from The Dark Knight trilogy got me jonesing for 1/6 scale figures from the DC Comics. And while Play Imaginative’s Super Alloy figures captured my attention for a while, it wasn’t until I got the Batman and Superman from Sideshow Collectibles’ DC line that I found something that really satisfied the itch.

The latest in the line, the DC Comics Green Lantern DC Comics Sixth Scale Figure, is now available to pre-order from Sideshow Collectibles. It’s Hal Jordan, my favorite of the Lanterns, and he comes with interchangeable hands and boots (for standing or flying), a power construct, and lantern.

Heads Up: Marvel Avengers Legends Agents of Shield 3-Pack Exclusive In Stock at ToysRUs.com

Marvel Avengers Legends Agents of Shield 3-Pack - packaged

If you’ve been on the hunt for Phil Coulson, Nick Fury, and Maria Hill, you’re in luck – the Marvel Legends Agents of Shield 3-pack that’s exclusive to Toys R Us is now in stock. The 3-pack, which could also have been called Directors of Shield, is priced at $49.99, so it qualifies for the TRU free shipping deal.

Considering how prices dropped on the Captain America, Ms. Marvel, and Radioactive Man exclusive at Target, I thought about waiting to order. But I think this might sell a bit more briskly, given the stronger ties to the Agents of Shield TV show and the Avengers movies. Plus, the only repeat here is Nick Fury, who was last available a few years back in the Wal-Mart line. Coulson and Hill have not had figures before and are completely new.

Thanks to Paul again for the heads-up, and happy shopping!

Masters of the Universe Classics Club 200X at 76% and Counting…


Based on the latest update from Skeletor’s Love Child, subscribers have pushed the pre-orders for the 6-figure Club 200X subscription from 50% to 76% over the past week. With five days to go, what seemed insurmountable a week ago now seems achievable. Maybe I was too hasty asking if Club 200X was dead.

What do you think – will it make it? Have you subbed?

Hasbro Marvel Legends Batroc, Spider-Woman, and Thanos Video Fly-By

Marvel Legends Batroc, Spider-Woman, and Thanos - AFP video fly-by

In my excitement to post pics of Batroc, Spider-Woman, and (part of) the Thanos build-a-figure from the latest wave of Marvel Legends, I forgot to shoot a fly-by video. Allow me to correct that.

Now that I’ve got a few of these on the AFP YouTube channel, would you guys give me some feedback? When I watch video reviews of figures, most of the time I mute the sound, and let the figures speak for themselves. But what do you like? Would you prefer some music, or even some commentary? What else would you like to see? Let me know.
