Amazon Gives Joe Fans A Retaliation Preview In Plastic

Rumors of an Amazon exclusive GI Joe Retaliation preview set started swirling months ago, and after a lull of no information, we quickly went from confirmation of the set to an in-stock listing, and now the first batch of Retaliation preview sets are shipping out. This set features four figures from Hasbro’s upcoming Retaliation toy line, in a special display box. Three of the figures seem to be identical to their single carded versions, while the fourth gets a new variant, apparently exclusive to this box set.

With The Avengers already in stores, Hasbro is gearing up to release their next Summer movie toy lines in just a few weeks. In preparation for the May 28th release dates, Pre-Order solicits for GI Joe Retaliation and The Amazing Spider-Man have gone live at e-tailers across the web. And much like The Avengers line, both new series are pretty broad in scope and (compared to the past) kind of light on action figures.

What Should Be in NECA’s Prometheus Toy Line?

For me, one of the most exciting reveals at Toy Fair was NECA’s announcement that they would be releasing a toy line for Prometheus. Ridley Scott’s upcoming movie looks incredibly ambitious and insanely cool, and (I hope) may end up being the best film of the Summer.

I though it would be fun to go place some guesses on what the upcoming Prometheus toy line could look like…

One of the recent additions to Kotobukiya’s DC Bishoujo Collection was Supergirl, who strikes a fun and flirty pose and makes an excellent addition to the “Pretty Girl” series. Master artist Shunya Yamashita does justice to the last daughter of Krypton, and the resulting statue is a must-have for any fans of the DC comics heroine or Bishoujo artwork.
