AICN Toys: 52, E.T., AVENGERS, THUNDERCATS, And more!!
John Ary here with a quick look at a few action figure lines that are making headlines this week...
The Dark Knight Batmobile from Hot Toys
Sideshow Collectibles and Hot Toys will soon offer a 1/6 scale version of the Tumbler. It features a detailed cockpit, a roof panel that slides open, movable braking flaps, working headlights and is in the same scale as the recent and upcoming Batman figures from Hot Toys. Its up for pre-order here for $469.99 with a release date sometime in the second quarter.
The New 52: Justice League Batman from DC Direct
As best as I can tell, the main difference between the New 52 hero costumes and the old ones is underwear. This New 52: Justice League Batman will stand 6.75-inches tall and features Jim Lee’s latest design of the caped crusader (sans underwear on the outside of his pants). It will cost you $20 when it releases in May.
E.T. from NECA
Toy News International has revealed the first two 7-inch E.T. figures from NECA's new line of toys. Galactic Friends E.T. includes a towel and a bag of Resse’s Pieces. There will also be a dress-up version of Elliot's favorite extra terrestrial. Look for these along with other E.T. toys (bendies, bobbleheads, etc.) in March.
The Avengers from Hasbro
Marvel has released new pics of Hasbro’s upcoming 3.75-inch Avengers figures. It sounds like there will 15 different figures in the Avengers 3.75-inch line, most of which will be directly from the movie, but there isn’t an Agent Coulson planned for 2012. For shame Hasbro!!!
Marvel Select Colossus from Diamond Select Toys
These new pics recently surfaced on the Art Asylum blog of the newest Marvel Select figure. Piotr Rasputin stands 8.25 inches tall with 16 points of articulation. This Russian mutie should release later in January for around $20. He's also available for pre-order here.
And finally this week I re... re... review the 6-inch Classic Lion-O from Bandai. Hooooooooooooooooooo!

It looks like he should be reclining on a foreign sports car.

...Nehru collars and unnecessary military piping. And an invulnerable Kryptonian wearing body armor.

My dad took me to the store after seeing ET when I was very very young, but all we could find was cross dressing ET. Very sad.

The Tumbler is great and I am glad HT is re-releasing it but the Burton Batmobile is even greater and Hot Toys won't even say how much it is.
No price and no release date equals either way too much money or they or having production problems.

I used to love seeing those type of sets in toy commercials.
