McFarlane Toys have been pushing on with the DC license since they took over earlier this year. Round 1 gave us a taste of everything – modern comics, animated and TV. Later in the year we got two Wonder Woman pieces from the upcoming WW84. Today we are looking at their latest offering – figures based on the DC Comics Batman: White Knight mini-series. This is a DC Black Label story out of the main continuity, which has the Joker being “cured” and becoming Gotham’s savior, while Batman becomes it’s villain. The art has it’s own unique style, and these figures are very faithful to that look. To the casual fan who just wants a standard “works for everything” Batman – this isn’t it, on purpose. If you know the source material – it is dead on. Read on to check out our pics of the figures and some additional thoughts, courtesy of McFarlane Toys!

Inspired by It: Chapter Two (2019), cinematic conclusion of the adaptation of the work created by the legendary horror writer Stephen King, Iron Studios presents “Pennywise Deluxe Art Scale 1/10 – IT Chapter Two”, a statue that presents the antagonist of macabre tale, a shape-shifting supernatural creature that takes the form of a clown named Pennywise to attract its favorite prey, children.

The figure also features an extra interchangeable head.
Played by Bill Skarsgård, Pennywise appeared on Earth many centuries ago, in a cataclysmic event, similar to an asteroid collision, and since then he remains dormant, waking up in cycles of 27 to 30 years to hunt children, attracting them like a simple clown and then devour them and so he feeds on their fears.

Ultra Instinct – the highest form of power up for Goku (for now) is here, in hand, in S.H. Figuarts form! I’ve been waiting for this for a while now, it’s the perfect representation of the modern Dragonball era. And Tamashii Nations did a great job with the figure – IMO taking top spot as the best Goku to date. He has metallic silver on the hair, full shirtless upper with torn gi above the belt, ripped pants, 4 faces in standard levels of intensity, 4 sets of hands – all standard Goku SHF styles and a Kamehameha energy ball – same one as previously released in a sharper blue clear plastic. Nothing crazy but the execution is tops. Smooth firm joints, dense plastic, sharp sculpt head to toe, colors pop. Feels good in hand. A worthy rep of Goku’s ultimate form. Only ask would be a slight wash on the body, as he has a lot of cuts and scrapes built into the mold, but they don’t shine due to lack of paint on the flesh. We’ve taken him for a spin with a battle against Jiren, so read on to check him out courtesy of TheToySource! He’s in stock there and shipping now!
