MCFARLANE TOYS ANNOUNCES YET ANOTHER BATMAN VARIANT FIGURE

0

Another day, and yet another generic variant from McFarlane Toys in the DC Multiverse line. The company has announced a Target exclusive Batman: White Knight “Red” Variant Batman figure. The original figure was released back in June, and now it seems a variant will be coming soon as well.

I thought this was McFarlane Toys, not Funko. Honestly this coupled with a Bronze Joker, and upcoming Bronze Batman, and more… has really cooled my interest in this line. That along with the issues finding these figures in store has me a bit bummed.

In any case, we are getting another DC Multiverse figure. Not sure when this one will be released, but keep an eye out on your local Target to see if you get this one.

Our friends to the north or in for an awesome exclusive, when Funko releases their upcoming Pop! Ad Icons Geoffrey as Superman. This one is a Canadian exclusive (because they actually still have Toys R’ Us stores there) and features the TRU mascot Geoffrey the giraffe wearing a Superman costume.

There is no official word on a release date, other than “soon”. If you are one of those “completists” types, and you live in the United States, hopefully one of your Canadian friends can help you out with this one.

I am sure you will most likely be able to secure him on the secondary market as well.

Until then, check out the official image of the upcoming Pop below.

DC Comics announced Batman Day 2020 would be held on September 19 this year, and the day could not go by without an exclusive or two. The press release indicates that LEGO, Funko, and Spin Master would all be releasing exclusives to celebrate the event.

Rumors having been making the rounds concerning a LEGO UCS style Batwing based on the Tim Burton Batman film. Batman Day 2020 might be the appropriate time to drop that one.

It will interesting to see what sort of Spin Master exclusives will be available. Hopefully not the bigger figures, but maybe 4″ exclusives.

MCFARLANE TOYS’ ANNOUNCES MCFARLANE PLATINUM EDITION CHASE PROGRAM

It seems McFarlane Toys is playing to the scalper crowd, by releasing a new line called McFarlane Platinum Edition. The line kicks off with this bronze Joker figure which is randomly packed in cases and is limited to only 3,000 pieces.

This is the exact thing I was hoping we could avoid with this line, but it seems that driving prices up on the secondary market is what companies want to do these days. Luckily this is not a “must-have” figure for me. If it were anything other than a “bronze” variant, I would be fuming right now.

You can see that current eBay final sales have him going for about $60.00 right now. So if you are interested in outright purchasing him, go to eBay now. Otherwise, enjoy the hunt.

OFFICIAL PRESS RELEASE:

In July, during McFarlane Con, McFarlane Toys teased a new chase program coming soon. The new chase program officially is called McFarlane Platinum Edition.  McFarlane Toys has designed the new chase program to create a line of collectibles that will excite all collectors and become a valued part of your McFarlane Toys collection. 

The first figure to release from this program is the Arkham Asylum Joker Bronze Edition, and it will be hitting retailers in September 2020. The Arkham Asylum Joker Bronze Edition figure is limited in production – only 3,000 produced worldwide – and has been randomly packed into DC Multiverse cases shipping to retailers globally.

In 2021, all chase figures released in the McFarlane Platinum Edition program will be showcased in limited-edition packaging with a McFarlane Platinum Edition label printed in foil.

Every McFarlane Platinum Edition figure will be highly limited in quantity and feature a rare paint variation. It will extend across all of McFarlane Toys’ world-class and fan-favorite entertainment and pop culture brands to bring the “chase’ of collecting back to fans everywhere!

IRON STUDIOS TEASES NEW JOKER 1/3 SCALE STATUE!

0

One of the biggest surprise movie hits of 2019 was Joker from Todd Phillips. The movie was a box office and critical success and surprisingly gave us little in merchandise (most likely for its graphic nature).

Prime 1 Studio will be the first to release a collectible (statue) from the film. Their product debuts some time towards the end of the year, but now a new item seems to have reared its head.

Iron Studios has just teased a 1/3 scale Joker statue in a new video they posted on their official facebook page. We get just a glimpse of the statue in the short teaser video, but it is enough to make me want more! Check out the video teaser embedded below!

In Gotham City, mentally troubled comedian Arthur Fleck is disregarded and mistreated by society. He then embarks on a downward spiral of revolution and bloody crime. This path brings him face-to-face with his alter-ego: the Joker.

About Iron Studios:

Iron Studios is a Brazilian company with concept stores in Sao Paulo, Eldorado, and Rio de Janeiro. The company’s high-quality, highly detailed statues represent a range of licenses that include Ghostbusters, Batman, and DC Comics.
