Welcome back to Toy aisle, io9’s regular roundup of the latest toys and merchandise on the internet. This week, Lego goes queer and festive, McFarlane brings alien quirks to his War hammer line, and your next phone upgrade might just be a pretty Pokemon Pokédex. Check it out!
Lego strange eye – The Loft Fab 5
The latest insanely perfect Lego residence turned into a replica that you can actually afford is the Atlanta Loft used by the Fab 5 in the strange eye TV show. The Set of 974 pieces, available October 1 for $ 100, includes miniature versions of the Fab 5 themselves, as well as the late Bruley the Dog, and two for one of the series’ most memorable makeovers, showing off the before and after transformation of Kathi Dooley. The loft itself features a kitchen, clothes rack, swivel lounge chair, and interior design that Bobby Berk helped Lego design.
McFarlane Toys Warhammer 40,000
McFarlane’s Last Wave War hammer the numbers finally break the mold and give Games Workshop fans what they wanted from the start: only a Space Marine in the whole wave. After a few balancing acts where the chosen sons of the Imperium of Man dominated the debates, McFarlane is doing what he does best with toys and branching out into more spooky designs. There is still some reservation, of course, in the form of a singular Space Marine in the new set of five: an Ultramarine Reaver, a scout trooper wearing a skull mask that wears lighter armor than a typical troop, to run better and you shoot the face with.
But the Reaver will be joined by four “Xeno” options: a Tyranid Genestealer, with plenty of arms to claw you at, and three Space Orks. Two of the Orks are variants of Commander Ork Meganob’s unit 40K, each one coming with the face Attachable mask and armor options as well as different weapons: one comes with a set of arm circular saw hands for close quarters combat, while the other comes with a claw and ‘shoota’ rifle at longer range. The final option is a much more heavily armed Ork Big Mek, a towering plus-size figure that towers over his fellow Greenskin with his armor and heavy weapons. All five minifigures, along with the corresponding three “artist proof” grayscale variants of the Marine, Tyranid and Big Mek, are slated for release in November. [Warhammer Community]
Mezco Toyz Ultimate Godzilla
How can you possibly say no to a figure that includes a disturbing warning like: “Due to the large size of the figure, it is strongly recommended not to display it on surfaces over 3 feet high?”? Mezco Toyz’s New Ultimate Godzilla stands 18 inches tall and is three feet long from prong to tail. Pressing the buttons hidden in the back of the kaiju triggers light functions and sound effects, and although the figure is limited to just 10 points of articulation, Godzilla’s flexible tail features internal skeletal reinforcement to create the perfect pose. But is this enough to justify the the price of $ 450 of the figure when will it be shipped towards the end of next year?
Lego Santa’s sleigh
After years of neglect, Santa Claus himself can finally visit your Lego holiday village with a sled full of toys with this 343 pieces, $ 37 set which will be available for purchase from October 1. The sleigh itself looks festively decorated, and the set includes a stack of wrapped gifts in addition to a naughty and kind list full of names for Santa to look at, but we have to wonder why only four reindeer? We’d be happy to shell out a few extra bucks for eight of them, and even more if Lego was willing to add a Rudolph too.
SH Figuarts Marvel Eternals
Just in time for the launch of the pre-release marketing cycle, Bandai announced the next three entrants to its Marvel Cinematic Universe SH Figuarts lineup, all focused on the upcoming one. Eternals: Sersi, Ikaris and Kingo. Each Eternal will come with hands, heads, and alternate effect pieces, which replicate them using their powers, whether it’s Ikaris eye rays, Sersi’s eyes glowing as she transmutes an item. wood in light material (or vice versa), or Kingo aiming his finger strokes. Each figure, just over six inches tall, will cost the equivalent of around $ 60 when it releases in Japan next month. [Toyark]
Hot Toys Back to the Future III Marty McFly and Doc Brown Sixth Scale Action Figures
Of course, the third film in the Back to the future The trilogy is more like a TV movie, but the music is still slamming (in part thanks to ZZ Top) and it’s good to have at least one western in our collection without Clint Eastwood, or at least the real Clint Eastwood. The main reason we would lose hundreds of dollars on Hot Toys’ new product BttF III Doctor Brown and Marty mcfly sixth scale figures would recreate the duo emblematic photo of the “clock tower”, but there are other incentives as well, including new sculpted heads of Christophe lloyd and Michael J. Fox, and mountains of accessories, including Doc’s upgraded rifle and a miniature model of the DeLorean Time Machine, as well as Marty’s bulletproof baking sheet and pie pan turned into a Frisbee.
Takara Tomy Pokémon Rotom Phone Plus
Taking note of Apple’s annual release schedule, Takara Tomy presents an updated version of his Interactive Rotom Phone which debuted last year. The original version of the device allowed children to hunt and catch 500 different Pokémon from different regions, but the New version run up against that at 800 pocket monsters in total and adds motion detection so players can interact with the device by moving their body in 24 different ways. (Think spinning, jumping, etc.) Looks like Amazon Japan has them available, with a price of around $ 115 after currency conversion.
