It’s Summer (well, almost), and that means Summer movies, San Diego Comic Con and new toy reveals!
Ahead of SDCC, Funko Toys have shown us exciting images of the new Stranger Things action figures line.
In addition to Funko, McFarlane Toys have also announced they will be producing figures based on the smash Netflix series.
Hopefully we will get a peek at that offering during Comic Con.
Stranger Things returns October 31st.
Also Netflix related is the upcoming wave of Marvel Legends from Hasbro.
In the line up is:
and The Punisher.
All either have, or have appeared on Netflix in a popular series. In the case of Punisher, his first appearance (along with Elektra) was in the second season of Daredevil.
That in turn, led to Frank Castle getting his own series.
Noticeably missing from the figure line up is Luke Cage, who’s series had the largest debut of any of them.
Also missing is Iron Fist, but a Marvel Legends comic figure was recently produced.
This Netflix wave of figures is scheduled for release in August.
Mattel has shown us our first look at the upcoming DC Multiverse Justice League figures.
After knocking it out of the park with the Wonder Woman wave, this early image feels like a few steps back.
All of the figures save for Wonder Woman feel like a few steps in the wrong direction — and even she feels like a reheated throw in from a previous wave.
We’re all keeping our fingers crossed that Mattel proves they’ve turned a corner. The Wonder Woman figures were a must have. Even the exclusives.
I’m not in such a rush to get any of these.
The Justice League Multiverse action figures are due out in August.
