McFarlane Halo, DC Universe Young Justice, and More On Sale with Friday Doorbusters at Toys R Us

Toys R Us has an online deal today only for an extra 10% off, including already discounted figures. It’s a mish-mash of stuff, as usual, but there are some Halo and Young Justice figures on sale. I haven’t actually seen the new Halo stuff in stores, but got confused by the “6-inch” designation on the new stuff. Are the new Halo figures truly in the 6-inch scale? If so I might have to check them out.

Happy New Year! AFP’s Best of 2010

As we kick off the new year, I asked the guys to make their picks for for best [insert anything toy-related] for 2010. I wasn’t sure, since we just picked our “most thankful for” figures a few weeks ago at Thanksgiving, if we’d have much to add. Turns out there was plenty that impressed us above and beyond our Thanksgiving picks.

I’ll get us started.

Best of 2010 - Iron Man 2 - Iron Monger

Ron’s pick – Hasbro Iron Man 2 – Iron Monger

I don’t want to get typecast, because I picked the Marvel Legends Iron Man as one of Fwoosh’s Best of 2009. But this year, I think that the Iron Man 2 line from Hasbro, in particular the Comic series, went a long way in winning over fans who were missing their 6-inch Legends to the 4-inch scale.

The line has some really great sculpts, decent enough paint apps, and some fantastic articulation at that size. And, of course, it brought us this awesome Iron Monger – the huge, classic, comic-based blue version that I never thought we’d get, since the movie-based Iron Monger lined shelves for a while.

There were lots of Hasbro Iron Man news and reviews this year, but one of my favorite posts was highlighting this custom Iron Man armory by Thor-El.
