A little while back, we featured the in-development classic Mac-inspired toy Macinbot. Well, it's out of development and into the real world and has changed it's name to Classicbot. And that figure you might remember seeing is the Classicbot Classic.
And while we will hopefully have a more in-depth look at that figure, I wanted to take a look at some of the other in-development figures that they are showing off. For instance, pictured above is the Trashbot Play Set based on the classic Macintosh trash icon. And, below, you can see the iBot G3, base on the 1998 Bondi Blue iMac G3. Let's hope both of these come to fruition.

Funko's latest delve into their Action Figures line brings us way back to the 1990's with some characters from The Disney Afternoon Collection. The Action Figure: Disney Afternoon series is based on four different television series from the season 2 lineup (Duck Tales, Darkwing Duck, Tailspin, and Chip 'n Dale: Rescue Rangers). Oh...how those shows got me through those awkward middle school years.
The fully articulated figures stand roughly 3.75 inches tall and most are featured with accessories. This series includes the terror that flaps in the night - Darkwing Duck, the richest duck in the world - Scrooge McDuck, a bear who also flew a plane - Baloo, and that pair of mischievous chipmunks, Chip and Dale. Look for the Darkwing chase, featured in black and white, a rarity of 1-in-6.

If you've never seen the 1978 Star Wars Holiday Special television film, and you consider yourself a Star Wars fan, you need to go grab a bootleg copy of it. Where else will you see Bea Arthur as a singing bartender working in the Mos Eisley Cantina? But one of the most overlooked aspects of the special (no, not meeting Chewbacca's family) is that Boba Fett made his debut in an animated short that was featured during the variety show.
And while this version of Boba Fett is often talked about, it's not until now that Hot Toys has announced the 1/6th scale Boba Fett (Animation Version) collectible figure. Featuring Boba Fett’s classic look from the Star Wars Holiday Special animation, the highly accurate 1/6th scale Boba Fett (Animation Version) figure is specially equipped with blue and yellow colored Mandolorian armor, a twin-pronged electropole, a blaster pistol and his iconic jetpack on his back.
Sideshow Collectibles is currently taking pre-orders for the Boba Fett figure. It's priced at $235.00 and expected to begin shipping in Q2 of 2018...or I guess in time for your 2018 Star Wars Holiday Special viewing.

Sculpted of food grade resin, there's a removable 16 oz. stainless steel liner cup inside. You can pick up for own (measures 5.5-inches in height) for $45.00.
