John Ary here with a quick look at a few action figure lines that are making headlines this week...

 

Real Steel Movie Figures by Jakks Pacific

In the near future, robots have replaced humans boxers.  That’s the premise of the new Hugh Jackman film coming to a cineplex near you later this year... Seriously... Hugh Jackman is making a movie about robot boxers... Anyone else a little worried about Wolverine 2? (sigh) Annnnnnyway... Jakks Pacific will handle the toy licence for the movie property.  Here’s a look at a few of the toys you can expect to see starting in August.
