On Shelves Now; Hasbro “Avengers: Age Of Ultron” Figures/Vehicles/Costumes

The new Marvel Studios sure to be blockbuster “Avengers: Age Of Ultron” has been out for a week now and I figured that it was as good a time as any to showcase some of the stuff that we found at the nearby Toys R Us store in terms of the toys based on the film. Hasbro has really been on point with their lines for these properties which we were lucky enough to get an advance peek at during this years Toy Fair. Dig in.

As you’ll see in the images presented below there are wonderful action figures for the younger fans and the collector’s alike along with numerous vehicles and costume things for those who wish to dress up. I’ll be keeping the narrative light for this one since the images speak for themselves.

Hasbro Releases “Star Wars Commemorative Collections” 3.75-Inch Figures

Logo - Star Wars

In celebration of the Star Wars saga being released in a Hi-Definition digital format for the very first time, Hasbro Toys have issued six collectible action figure packages with each of them focusing on the various films across the franchise. Each set includes four distinct action figures related to that particular film and below you can see the six individual boxes as they stand on the shelves. I’ve been meaning to post these photos for a couple of weeks but got sidelined and felt that with it being “Star Wars Day” today that there was no better time to get this into your visual.

Of the InToy Fair 2015 was around the corner and once again PiercingMetal.com was one of the small group of press outlets invited to the inner sanctum of the Mezco Toyz company in order to get an advance look at their latest offerings. I would be joined by my stalwart colleague in arms, Skeleton Pete Parrella and present you with my findings in this post. Take a deep breath, map out how you might want to use that surplus cash going forward in this new year and continue on deep into this narrative. Licensed properties from “Breaking Bad”, “Sons Of Anarchy”, “Mortal Kombat” and “Batman” will join up with their long standing “Living Dead Dolls” and “Mezitz”. Here we go….

We were all escorted over to the conference room which had been setup to showcase all of the new offerings and in the center of the room were some banners. One banner featured the “Mortal Kombat X” license so we shall begin with those images.

Out Now: “Living Dead Dolls” Series 28 – “Sweet 16 Party”

I was out and about with Skeleton Pete after seeing a film in the city and as is our usual practice, we headed right into Forbidden Planet afterwards. I love this place and all its wonderful offerings and when I saw that the new set of Mezco Toyz “Living Dead Dolls” were on the shelves I snapped photos with my mobile device and am sharing them with you below.

This series is the 28th and known as the “Sweet 16 Party” because the company is 16 years old at the time of this writing. Sorry that they were in packages but I think these images will do the trick for those fans who get all in a frenzy when they are made available. They are creeptastic for sure.

NECA Presents: Iron Maiden’s “Eddie” in Powerslave Incarnation

Hey there my friends, do you remember when I was doing the Toy Fair coverage earlier in the year and I spotlighted a couple of the cool action figures that the world was going to get from NECA? If not that is okay but to recap they have been offering up some serious coolness based on Iron Maiden’s own maniacal mascot “Eddie” and we’ve seen him in his quite classic “Killers” form as well as from “The Trooper” with a real cloth outfit. Now I am happy to share with you the image of their available everywhere “Eddie” in his “Powerslave” Mummy outfit. Check out the official photo below and then I’ve got some press copy for you to absorb.

NECA - Powerslave Eddie Figure

Here’s the Official Word on the figure from the NECA site “Celebrate the 30th Anniversary of the classic metal masterpiece – Iron Maiden’s POWERSLAVE – with this amazing “Mummy” Eddie. Based on the poster and program artwork from their groundbreaking 1984-1985 World Slavery Tour, this 8″ tall Eddie action figure features real metal chains that can be connected to the mouth or unhooked for when he breaks free. Also includes a bonus interchangeable second head based on the SOMEWHERE BACK IN TIME artwork, with the bandages stripped away to reveal more of the beast that lies beneath.”
