I know we haven’t been posting as much lately but here is something Star Wars collectors will be interested in. The Han & Leia 2 pack is up for preorder at Entertainment Earth and a couple other online retailers. This is the first time it is made available in the states and I’m sure will go fast. Get your preorders in now. (more…)
I finally found NECA’s Ultimate Fugitive Predator at Target right before heading to New York. With stuff still left to unpack and open from the move back from Seattle, I am just now getting around to taking him out of the box. I figured I better hurry with the newly revealed Emissary #1 shipping out next month. If you haven’t already, you can check him out here. I know many were expecting their next reveal to be the super predator, but this is cool none the less.
Back to the fugitive. After finally seeing him in the first trailer I couldn’t wait to see what NECA was going to bring to the table with their figure. One of the many licenses I’m glad to see them own is the Predator franchise. They do great figures at a great price and this one is no different. (more…)
After several rumors and reports were swirling around last week, it seems Toys R Us is making a comeback, sort of. A press release from Geoffrey LLC went out last week basically saying they were acquiring everything as far as branding and intellectually property associated with Toys R Us and Baby R Us.
So, while everyone was distracted at NYCC, Geoffrey was over at the Fall Toy Preview in Dallas wearing a cape saying he was “back from vacation”. He was working at a booth aptly named “Geoffrey’s Toy Box”.
After reaching out to a few people there, the plan is to open locations under the “Geoffrey’s Toy Box” by the Holidays of this year. That already being a tall order, these new shops will be done as a “shop-within-a-shop” concept. So, they are basically opening mini-locations within larger retail stores for the Holidays. Much like KB toys was rumored to do earlier, or how a “Toy City” inside of Party City was talked about.
I came home from a trip today to find a pleasant surprise waiting on my front porch. It was this month’s Venom Collector Corps. I haven’t seen an unboxing video from Funko yet, so my cruddy pics with have to do for now. As always spoilers ahead. (more…)
