Two New Batman Figure Licenses Announced

BatmanBatmanNot one, but two licenses have been granted for Batman action figures this week. Not only does Mattel, DC Collectibles, Figures Toy Co., Hot Toys, Medicom, Square-Enix, Wonderland Toys, Play Imaginative, and a few more have the Bat-License but it's growing! NECA is expanding its line from 1:4 scale figures to also include a new 7-inch Sunsoft-Inspired NES Batman figure which will also presumably have a normal Keaton deco in the next few weeks.

If that weren't enough, Mezco Toyz will also expand their offering beyond Mez-Itz to make One:12 Collective 6-Inch Cloth Outfit Action Figures, which are like hyper-modern and 2-inch smaller takes on the Mego style. THe Mego style, of course, is being done swimmingly by the wonderful people at Figures Toy Co. (Hi Steve!) Their 1966 guys are pretty swell. Mezco's nifty 6-inch line isn't just Batman - Universal Monsters, Judge Dredd, and more DCU are on deck. Crazy.

SDCC: #FAFATL For Free Art

SDCCOnce again, @EllyFontArt sent along some awesome Free Art Friday Atlanta #FAFATL Goodies for SDCC 2014!

Click here to see the whole gallery - one of each item has been created, but there are two envelopes of stickers and cards going around. Where? Well, that would be telling - sometimes I put it on East Harbor Drive, sometimes they're near the booth where I work (#2343) around opening, and the one panel I'll go to usually gets an item left in there somewhere, and that's on Friday, and if you sit next to me you'll probably see me put it out. And more, of course. Heck, if you find me I'll give you one if I have one on me.

Review: Hasbro Xevoz Grim Skull Action Figure

Figure of the DayHasbro Xevoz Grim Skull Action FigureSomething new every day-- unless it's old! Our 16bit.com Figure of the Day continues for you lucky people! Is there anything we won't cover in this column? Probably not!

On fire, baby! The Hasbro Xevoz Grim Skull Action Figure is a skeleton with pirate and flame parts - you can customize the figure, and it's one of Hasbro many great, underrated toys from the early 2000s. Great things happen when you aim your eye on kids and not collectors - we see little of this lately. So read on, and come back soon for more!

ReAction Adds NBX Zero, Superman Sloth for SDCC

SDCCSlothy JackVia ReAction News: ReAction Adds NBX Zero, Superman Sloth for SDCC.

Funko revealed 2 more SDCC ReAction figures on Twitter last week. One is Nightmare Before Christmas Jack Skelington with Zero, which will undoubtedly be the variant to chase down this season - three variant heads will ship with the standard release, too. The other is The Goonies Sloth in Superman t-shirt which should also be a big, big deal. In theory you can get yours at Comic-Con this week, at Funko's booth.

New Larping TMNT Hitting Now

TMNTHeadsI read on Battlegrip that the LARP Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle Action Figures were added to Playmates' official site, with barbarian and wizard and knight-inspried figures that should delight fans of RPGs or Gauntlet.

Even more surprising was that I saw Elf Mikey, Knight Leo, and Barbarian Raph at a Walmart over the weekend for $8.88 a pop.

For those of you old enough to remember Warriors of the Forgotten Sewer figures - many of which were unceremoniously axed - these may be a delightful blast from the past. The 1990s Knight Mikey and Wizard Splinter never saw release, but medieval Bebop, Rocksteady, Leo, and Don made the cut.

RoboForce and Mordles Tonight

RoboForceMordlesAt some point today, ToyFinity will have new Mordles and RoboForce.

I already got my Mordles - I have to say, the big yellow Mordle is a must. The clear blue ones with green mouths, teeth, eyes, and claws are exquisite. The clear colorless ones are surprisingly conservative - they have painted green eyes, and that is all.

RoboForce has Maxx in Glyaxia Disguise and Vanguard the Warrior. I think that's it - they look good.

Sucklord Makes Resin... Playmobily Thing

ToysSuck ThisA new resin figure: SUCKLORD 6.6.

The 3-inch resin figure is $62, and a run of 30. It has a cape, sword, and comes in a header baggie as most low-run toys are. Pink splatter on the back of the figure lets you know that it's authentic. I assume.

New Games for the Xbox 360 Released

Xbox Live ArcadeAbyss OdysseyXbox fans, it's time to download Abyss Odyssey, a $10 platformer. Microsoft says:

"From indie Chilean developer ACE Team comes an Art Nouveau-styled, side-scrolling action adventure game featuring a complex fighting engine in procedurally generated levels that destine its three warriors to battle for an eternity. Enter the bold Katrien, the tortured specter Ghost Monk, and the ethereal Pincoya. Perform combos and chain attacks, and release a flurry of blows in order to survive what lies beneath. Your path into the unknown may start out with three fierce warriors, but when you learn to possess your enemies, you can challenge the abyss with their skills and combat abilities. Use these abilities available to you and attempt to figure out the infinite abyss. But the difficulties in accomplishing this great task don't end there! The side-scrolling levels never play out the same way twice, from the monsters they are filled with, to the locations of life-saving merchants, or the unique encounters and treasures to be found."

Also available is Magic 2015 for $10.
