Four Horsies Raven

The guys over at Tenacious Toys have been running a Kickstarter for their crazy line of vinyl ponies. These guys are magic alright…Evil magic. Their Four Horsies of the ‘Pocalypse Collectible Art Toys Kickstarter has hit it’s initial funding goal, and there is still 19 days left to jump in. Here’s an overview from the Kickstarter:

Meet Calamity (Pestilence), Raven (Famine), Clash (War) and Ghost (Death). They’re the Four Horsies of the ‘Pocalypse (or at least they would be if they could only get their act together)!  This next-generation of doombringers are on a mission to destroy the Earth, but to do so, they’ll have to beat the likes of Queen Chroma and her rainbow sprite army!  Too bad they can’t crack teamwork to save their lives.

Led by Maddie (an older sister type with an affinity for destruction, funded in our last Kickstarter), these would-be Champions of Chaos are desperate to show their parents they’ve got what it takes to inherit the legacy.  Cake and ice cream for eternity? Not if these freaky fillies have anything to say about it!

NECA Batman Returns Penguin Preview

We’ve seen this awesome looking 1/4 Scale Batman Returns Penguin at a few different shows last year, most recently New York Comic-Con. Now the folks at NECA have revealed a new pic. The figure is being solicited to retailers later today, so expect pre-orders to begin popping up online. Previously, the figure had been shown only in his “onsie”. The new image shows that Penguin will be fully decked out with a jacket, and likely a few other accessories.

We’ll update when more images and info becomes available. See the new photo after the jump.

Toyark Toy Fair 2015

New forum member Marvelous (who had supplied some great info to our sister site TFW2005.com) attended Toy Fair in Germany. She was kind enough to give a bit of info from Nuremberg Toy Fair 2015. Here’s what she had to say:

Jurassic World
A few Dinosaurs were shown. They have fleshwounds like the JP1 toys. Also, there is a playset including the gate, fences but sadly no building like the JP1 version.
No D-Rex (Or what it´s called now)
Also no human figures.

No word on G.I. Joe, but they tried to dodge this question, so who knows.
M.A.S.K. will come back in the near future!
Star Wars EP7 Toys were on shelf, but to hot to talk about, since Disney ist very overprotective.

Marvel:
Titans (If I remember the name correctly, I mean those 5 POA 12 inch fuglys) Hulkbuster, can fit the Iron Man Mark 43 inside.
Playsets for the smaller AOU figures (2 Inch I guess)
Recent Legends Infinite series (Avengers Odin BAF, Spider-Man) but also a single Ant-Man from the rumored series. Looks good, also a 3,75 inch version with giant winged ant to ride on in Legends Infinite style packaging.

Star Wars will join the Mashers line

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles were present, but only already known stuff, since Stadlebauer distributes the line in German-speaking regions.

NECA was there, but only a small rather disappointing booth with no new figures as far as I can tell.

Lego:
Scooby Doh
4 Sets
Haunted House
Mystery Machine
Tomb of the Mummy
Lighthouse
Every set comes with a hidden treasure and a monster, which when the mask is removed, reveils the disguised person inside.

Marvel Superheroes
Already known AOU Sets
Ant-Man “Final Battle” set with a big spoiler! Includes Scott Lang/Ant-Man, a giant winged ant, the movies foe (Not Yellowjacket, according to the set!) and surprisingly oversized Lego bricks, which looked really great compared to the ant and minifigs.

Simpsons
Minifig wave 2 teased, no minifigs/sets at the show

Minecraft
4 new Sets
Netherkeep with Ghast
Monster Spawner
Village
Hut in the snow

Jurassic World
Already leaked sets were shown. No D-Rex (Again *sigh*)

Star Wars
Tydirium shuttle
Death Star final battle

Hero Factory like action figures:
Luke Skywalker (Jedi)
Darth Vader
Jango Fett
Commander Cody
Clone Wars Obi-Wan
General Grieveous (really impressive and big!)

Mezco Gigantor Promo

Mezco has sent over a new press release. They have announced the acquisition of the Gigantor license to celebrate the 50th anniversary of the U.S. debut of the character. Details are very scarce at the moment. But, with Toy Fair right around the corner, we may not have to wait too long for more info. I expect that we’ll see a variety of products and collectibles from Mezco, which will be coming in the third quarter of the year.

After the jump, you can check out the press release and the promo image.
