Mezco One:12 Collective “Moon Knight” Up For Preorder

Mezco Toyz has done some great work with their One:12 Collective, and 2019 shows no signs of things slowing down for them. Today, they just released new info on a preorder for the next Marvel Comics character joining the roster, and that six-inch figure will be of Moon Knight.

The One:12 Collective Moon Knight from Mezco Toyz is presented in a fitted suit with 3D crescent insignia and removable hoods. The mystically-enhanced vigilante comes complete with two head portraits and a range of combat weapons including a crescent blade, staff, nunchucks, and a grappling hook baton.

During a mission in Sudan, Marc Spector was left to die in the dessert by the hands of a bloodthirsty terrorist. Discovered by locals, Spector was brought to a tomb and placed at the foot of a statue of the moon god, Khonshu. After being pronounced dead, Spector arose suddenly, claiming Khonshu had restored him to life. Donning a cloak taken from Khonshu’s statue, Spector became Moon Knight, delivering vengeance in Khonshu’s name.

Titan Merchandise Reveals “DC TV Hero Titans” Toy Line

We have a lot of fun with Titan Vinyl, both when we do our unboxing videos and when we hang out with them at NYCC and Toy Fair. You can expect a lot more fun later this year, as the company just announced a brand new line with a very different look.

Coming out this fall, Titan Vinyl adds the DC TV show characters to their line-up, with three-inch mini-figures of characters from Arrow, Supergirl, The Flash, and Legends of Tomorrow.

The characters joining this first wave include Green Arrow, Supergirl, Flash, Zoom, White Canary, The Atom, Firestorm, and John Constantine. No news on who the chase figures or variants will be at this time.

Here is the official word from Titan:

DC TV HERO TITANS ARE COMING THIS SEPTEMBER!

Titan Entertainment are delighted to announce our September 2019 launch of our all-new 3″ window-boxed DC TV Hero TITANS vinyl figures!

Featuring our all-new 3″ Hero TITANS configuration (Titan’s signature detailed photo-realistic head-sculpts coupled with a new, dynamic body-form), DC TV Hero TITANS wave one features leading characters from DC Comics/Warner Bros Entertainment’s wildly popular CW superhero shows!

This debut wave spotlights Oliver Queen AKA Green Arrow from Arrow; Kara Danvers AKA Supergirl from Supergirl, Barry Allen AKA The Flash & his arch-nemesis Zoom from The Flash; Sara Lance AKA White Canary, Ray Palmer AKA The Atom, Jefferson Jackson/Martin Stein AKA Firestorm & DC’s Liverpudlian arch-mage John Constantine from DC’s Legends of Tomorrow!! Plus: two rare chase figures for you to hunt down and collect!

Each DC TV Hero TITANS vinyl figure is 3” window-boxed and some come with a character-specific accessory.

Sadly for UK fans, this line will only be available in the US.

This is a departure in the typical Titan Vinyl look, and this is something that Andrew Sumner teased with us during our Fan Q&A at NY Toy Fair back in February. It’s a little more realistic, while still keeping the Titan flair. I welcome this change and look forward to seeing what else is coming down the pipeline from them later this year with new properties.

NECA officially Takes TMNT ToyLine Global

Today, NECA formally announced what they teased last week about their TMNT figures going global. In the press release you can read below, the company delivered the news that their toyline would be more accessible to customers across the planet!

Read the presser below:

U.S.-based National Entertainment Collectibles Association (NECA) announced today the expansion of its licensing agreement with Viacom Nickelodeon Consumer Products (VNCP) for Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles (TMNT). For the first time ever, NECA’s distribution agreement will include international markets, allowing its bestselling TMNT action figures and collectibles to be sold in dozens of countries around the world from Asia to Europe to South America.

NECA first acquired the TMNT license in 2016 and has produced an expansive line of collector products based on the franchise’s movies and animated series, including action figures, prop replicas, accessories, collectibles and more. Until now, NECA items have only been available in the U.S., and this expansion into international markets will bring NECA’s TMNT product to fans around the world.

“Bringing our Turtle product to fans worldwide is something we have wanted for years. Thanks to our great partnership with Nickelodeon, we are so grateful to finally give loyal international Turtle fans – who have been supporting our TMNT line since its inception – an opportunity to collect this fantastic range,” said Randy Falk, NECA’s director of product development.

NECA is a leading creator, marketer, and global distributor of licensed consumer products based on some of the world’s most recognizable movies, video games, comic books, and pop culture. The NECA group of companies includes game developer and publisher WizKids, urban vinyl icon Kidrobot, and Joseph Enterprises, Inc., the creator of Chia Pet, The Clapper and other iconic American products.

WizKids Announces “WarLock Dungeon Tiles” For RPG Miniatures Environments

WizKids, the industry leader in high-quality pre-painted miniatures, today announced a new line of terrain building miniatures, WarLock Dungeon Tilesreleasing in early 2020!

First previewed at GAMA Trade Show in March, this all-new release will make it easier than ever before for players to create fully immersive environments for their RPG campaigns! WarLock Dungeon Tiles are 2 inch squares and are gridded in order to make it significantly easier to assemble new environments on the fly. Each tile is pre-painted, with two types of terrain, one on each side, adding to the versatility of these excellent pieces.

Additionally, WizKids has come up with a novel solution to the oft-cited problem of walls intruding on grid-space. The exterior walls are offset, and the interior walls are super thin, and can be placed between tiles with ease, preventing obtrusion onto the tiles themselves.

“WizKids WarLock Dungeon Tiles address a lot of the issues with current offerings on the market,” said Justin Ziran, president of WizKids. “WarLock tiles are quick and easy to assemble, consisting of tiles and clips which will allow GMs to build complete rooms with walls and working features, are cost effective and available at retail, not just online – allowing for the ultimate player experience for everyone!”

NECA Reveals Packaging For “Golden Girls” Figures

This may be the most anticipated toy-line of 2019… okay, maybe not, but I know a ton of people who don’t collect toys that are totally going to buy these. When NECA first announced and revealed the prototypes for these MEGO-style Golden Girls figures, the internet exploded. Over a year later, the hype remains, and the demand will be enormous.

Today, NECA posted pics on their Facebook page of the packages for the figures.

The figures stand eight inches tall, and come with fabric outfits. There have been some changes made to them since the first protos were debuted, and these are now up to par for fans of the show.

Sophia has the iconic cheesecake, but luckily the back of each box includes a pic of their favorite late-night snack.

Don’t sleep on these figures, as they are going to be extremely hot. I have a feeling these will be just as hard to find as the NECA TMNT figures in Target.

Underestimating something as mainstream as Golden Girls would be a mistake, and I expect scalpers to be hunting these down hard! If you see one of these toys in the wild, rescue it from their clutches – and if you don’t want it for yourself, send it to us!

The Golden Girls figures are due out in stores this May.

DC Universe Unveils First Look At “Swamp Thing” In New Teaser

I’m a huge Swamp Thing fan, so when I heard a new TV show was in the works I was instantly on board. When I found out it was going to only be available through DC’s online streaming service, DC Universe, I was less than thrilled. However, with today’s reveal of how the titular character looks, I may have to add another service to my list.

DC Universe released a teaser today that gives us our first look at Swampie as he emerges from the murky Southern depths, and not much else. Still, it’s a relief to finally see Swamp Thing look the way he has always been intended to be seen. This looks very comics accurate in a way that could have not been possible decades ago when they tried with the campy movies of yesteryear.

Watch the teaser trailer below:

Here is their official synopsis of the show: SWAMP THING follows Abby Arcane as she investigates what seems to be a deadly swamp-born virus in a small town in Louisiana but soon discovers that the swamp holds mystical and terrifying secrets. When unexplainable and chilling horrors emerge from the murky marsh, no one is safe.

“Swamp Thing” premieres on May 31 exclusively on DC Universe. He Joins the Doom Patrol and Teen Titans, who are already streaming on the service.

NECA TMNT Figures Coming To International Stores Near You

Ninja Turtles fans around the world are about to be in for a big treat, thanks to one of our favorite toymakers, NECA!

Over on their Facebook page, NECA posted the following image, which seems to offer a big hint of something for a group of very patient fans:

The image is a turtleshell covered in stickers from various countries, meaning the TMNT figures may finally get a long awaited international release.

The countries listed include Poland, the UK, Japan, Italy, Brazil, Canada, Germany, France, and Ireland.

Back during Toy Fair, we spoke with one of their reps about this as a fan in Australia asked about it. At that time, it was something they said they were working on, and it seems that NECA came through in a big way.

According to Toy Ark, so far it seems it’s the cartoon versions of the Turtles, specifically the two-packs, but perhaps the movie turtles will soon join them. We will update this post once we have more info about additional lines headed across the globe.
