New York- He’s made of steel, has a rocket-powered backpack, a pointy nose, eyes that never move, and incredible strength. He is Gigantor, and he is the latest addition to the Mezco Toyz lineup.
Originally developed as a weapon of war, Gigantor was later reprogrammed to act as a guardian of peace. Gigantor battles crime around the world, and clashes with the many villains who are always trying to steal or undermine the forces of good.
Since his American debut in 1964 he has captured the hearts and minds of every child who wished they could control a giant flying robot to fight evil.
Few characters have a half century of staying power, but Gigantor has proven himself to be bigger, faster, and stronger than the rest. Over the last five decades his popularity has grown exponentially but a dearth of product has left fans ravenous for new merchandise. Now, during his 50th anniversary in the US, Mezco Toyz will be releasing the Gigantor collectibles fans have been clamoring for.
Look for Mezco’s Gigantor products to hit stores in the 3rd quarter of 2015.

Funko – Big Trouble in Little China Pop! & Reaction

Posted on: January 21, 2015

“Just remember what ol’ jack Burton does when the Earth quakes, and the poison arrows fall from the sky, and the pillars of Heaven shake. Yeah, Jack Burton just looks that big ol’ storm right square in the eye and he says, ‘Give me your best shot, pal. I can take it.’”  Jack Burton

Coming this February from Funko will be POP! & Reaction figures on the John Carpenter 1986 cult classic Big Trouble in Little China. Each line will have the same 6 figures:

Jack Burton – Kurt Russell

Gracie Law – Kim Cattrall

Lo Pan – James Hong

Thunder – Carter Wong

Rain – Peter Kwong

Lightning – James Pax

POP! figures

This is a line I’ve long been waiting for. For a while Funko had the logo for Big Trouble on the license page but with nothing connected to it. Now finally we get our first look at the toys.  If you’ve never seen the movie, you should. If you have, you should see it again.  One of my favorite 1980’s films, Big Trouble in Little China makes a great addition to the Funko line. (Now if we can only get John Carpenter’s They Live! made)

New Toys

Posted on: January 7, 2015

With our Christmas presents unwrapped & the excitement of Toy Fair 2015 weeks away it’s time collectors turn their attention to the next craze of 2015. With all the toys that’re due to hit shelves this year be it new Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, Shopkins, or Disney’s Frozen toys, I think it’s safe to say the two most talked about toys are those that’re movie based.

The Avengers: The Age of Ultron & Star Wars Episode VII: The Force Unleashed. While The Avengers has show more in the trailer than Episode VII there’s no doubt there will be plenty of cool toys coming out this summer & Christmas for the films. Sure to be played with all summer long will be the new Avengers figures while sitting under every Christmas tree of 2015 will be Episode VII toys.

With Star Wars Rebels toys popular & collector’s collecting the Star Wars Black Line, you can bet Episode VII toys will be big on Christmas lists.  For those whose birthdays are in the summer, you can bet lots of Avengers toys will be received as presents.

Stay tuned to Toy-line for coverage on these toys & more as the toy craze of 2015 begins.
