Hot-Toys-Iron-Man-3-Peacemaker-Mark-XXXVI-1

Hot Toys continues to release the "House Party Protocol" suits that made Iron Man 3 so entertaining. The 1/6th scale Peacemaker (Mark XXXVI) armor was designed by Tony Stark in Iron Man 3 to be a riot control suit. The brightly-colored suit is nicknamed as the “Peacemaker” because it is built to control riots and keeping peace. Hot Toys has released the figure as a 2014 Summer Exclusive item, only to be found in specific markets.

Sideshow Collectibles currently has the figure available to pre-order for $269.99. It's anticipated to begin shipping in Q4 of 2014.

The 1/6th scale Peacemaker (Mark XXXVI) figure features:

  • LED-lit eyes, RT on chest (white light, battery operated)
  • Three pairs of interchangeable hands, including:
  • Pair with movable fingers and light-up repulsors
  • Pair of forceful fists
  • Pair of repulsor palms

Medicom’s WWE Sofubi Fighting Series

Medicom-Hulk-Hogan

From their Sofubi Fighting Series, Medicom has announced the release of a pair of WWE legends. Both Hulk Hogan and The Ultimate Warrior will be available in this approximately 10" tall scale. They're made of soft Japan-made vinyl and are expected to begin shipping in December 2014. Each figure retails around $85.00, so if you ever wanted to recreate their epic encounter at Wrestlemania VI...you're looking at a pricetag right around $170.00 (price of 'roids not included).

3AGO – We Like To Play

3AGO-Automatic-Hemingway-1

3A Toys is introducing a new line of play-oriented figures called 3AGO. This will be in an 8-inch scale, so falling somewhere between their 1/6th and 1/12th (Portable) lines. There's no word on whether the "We Like To Play" tagline means that these are going to be constructed to withstand the everyday grind of kids (or 35 year old kids) playing with them.

They are gonna launch with quite an assortment of characters. I'm looking forward to the Automatic Hemingway figures, but there are also three Tomorrow Kings, a 3AA Exclusive Night and Day TK, and five different WWR de Plumes. No word yet on any pricing, but it shouldn't take that long to find out, since they're slated to go on sale tonight (August 26th 2014) at 9PM ET.

Funko’s Science Fiction Mystery Minis

Funko-Sci-Fi-Minis-1

There's so much goodness in Funko's newest announcement - their Science Fiction Mystery Minis - that I don't know where to start. There's E.T., Robocop, Jedge Dredd, and characters from Tron, Predator, Alien, Mars Attacks, and Firefly...among others.

This blind box series will be one that most sci-fi geeks will want to pick up. Really...unlike a lot of blind box series, it looks like you can't go wrong with any of these. They will be available to purchase in September 2014.

3A shows you your Destiny

3A-Destiny
3A Toys has announced that they will be producing 1/6 scale figures based on the upcoming Bungie developed video game Destiny.  If you haven't heard of Destiny, it will be the hot game this coming fall. It's made by the same folks who brought you Halo, but this one will be available on both Xbox and Playstation platforms.

I've played the Alpha and Beta releases of the game, and I rarely get excited for anything other than sports games...but Destiny is one I'm anxiously awaiting for. It will be interesting to see just what 3A will releases, since each player can create their individualized character utilizing a number of color and choice options.

Oh...and the game features a lot of voice-over work from Peter Dinklage. Enough said.

The Lure of the Public Domain Super Hero

PDS-Sparkman
The Spark Man harnesses the power of the deadly spark

With the Amazing Heroes Kickstarter campaign having less than a day to go (they have yet to meet their goal), plus the recent solicitation email from GBJR Toys (that's everyone's favorite trolling toy "creator" Geoff Beckett's follow-up to Shocker Toys) that they are looking to fund the Spotlight Golden Age toy line via some place I will not link to (I don't want you to suffer the fate of 100s of other people still waiting on product or refunds)...just why are these Public Domain Super Heroes generating such a buzz?

PDS-Lone-Warrior-Dicky
So many questions. How does Lone Warrior have a sidekick? And why is he named Dicky?

The obvious reason is that you don't have to pay any licensing fees. So find some cool characters whose Copyright has run out or hasn't been renewed...and make a toy out of them. You don't have to get into negotiations with Marvel or DC, which means you don't have to fork over a good portion of the profits.
