Damn I'm loving those Marvel Infinite figures. I'm not big on movie figures but those are cool. I really like the Groot (which I know is a BAF but still) and the Nova figure.

I wish Hasbro would stick a fork in the 4" line already. Better to be on hiatus than offer the lazy re-offerings that didn't sell the first time.


Most of these are just re-releases of most of the in "demand" figures. I just see it as Hasbro giving fans another chance at nabbing them.

The moment you've been groaning for.. Mattel's DC lines from TF '14 (via Toy Ark):

Okay I'm in love with their small line of figures and their Justice League line just keeps looking better and better. Plus dat Young Justice Black Manta. BUT... to end DCUC on Super Powers? Along with a repaints of two reused previous molds? I get what Mattel was doing since Kenner did a Riddler figure for a latter DC line of toys that reused the Hal Jordan mold. But.. couldn't we have had Darkseid with a cape instead?

I like most of what I'm seeing. Although that Riddler/Green Lantern is weird looking.

I'd say the real winners this year are DC Collectibles and NECA. Hasbro had probably the best figure I'm drooling for (Jetfire), and some "new" G.I. Joe but their Age of Extinction line looks awful and I'm just not sold on their Star Wars or current Marvel product.

If they ever actually release them.

They look more like a bunch of power point slides Hasbro had lying around and decided to put to use to make the trip to the Dallas convention a wee bit friendlier and shut up what's left of the 4" collectors the for another year.

They've already been slated for a "fall" TRU release. Which is convenient since the cons will be over and Hasbro won't have to actually deliver any product until GIJoe 3. And by the way... what a godawful logo they unveiled. Looks like whoever was in charge of the 50th PP slides got to take a crack at the movie logo too.

Wow. That's HUGE news. I kind of wondered why NECA would bother with a Power Loader accessory for their Aliens line without Ripley. As for why this is BIG news this is the first time ever that Sigourney Weaver has signed off on her likeness with the character. In every previous release of a Ripley figure it's never shared the likeness of Sigourney.

I picked up the Marvel Legends Boomerang today. There are a few minor issues with the paint applications, but otherwise this is an excellent figure. The white and navy blue color scheme makes for a great color contrast and it has a really nice, expressive head sculpt. Aside from the head and the accessories, he has the same mold as the Baron Zemo figure, so they look pretty cool standing next to each other on my shelf. Now if only they'd release other Thunderbolts (and Superior Foes!) to give them some company.

They have Moonstone. Songbird was originally lined up for her as the alternate figure but it never was released. Last year there was SDCC wave of Thunderbolts but it was Luke Cage led team.

Yeah, I know about the both of those. I'd like to pick up Moonstone and Ghost if I could get them for the right price. I couldn't care less about the other three, though. I really want that Thunderbolts wave to be released. Not only did it have Songbird (even though it was her crappy Kev Walker design), but also Blizzard and Radioactiveman.
