McFarlane Toys Reveals New DC Multiverse Figures

This past week at the first-ever McFarlane Con numerous new DC Comics figures were been announced. Ranging from designs of recent comic stories, games, and animation, the full range of the DC Multiverse can be seen in these upcoming waves.

So, lets get into some of the exciting announcements from the con starting with our latest Multiverse Build a fig wave based on the Dark Knights: Metal characters.

Kicking things off is the truly villainous figure in The Batman Who Laughs. A version of the Dark Knight that has been infected with the Jokers toxin becoming a hybrid of the hero and villain. He is one of the first figures coming from the Dark Knights: Metals storyline and features Sky Tyrant wings making him just as much of a threat in the air as he is on land. The Batman Who Laughs is not alone though with him he brings a pack of Jokerized Robins to support him. Each of these Robin figures will come with one of three head sculpts giving a different twisted expression and if you collect them all you will be able to assemble another ally of The Batman Who Laughs: The Merciless. As part of McFarlane’s latest Multiverse build a fig, pieces of the Merciless will be included in each figure in this wave. Here to stop these villains is the world’s finest heroes Batman and Superman. This Superman has infected himself with the Joker toxin bringing about that wicked grin, and he of course is working with the Dark Knight. All of the figures in this wave will be available in the Fall of 2020!

Also coming in Fall of 2020 is McFarlane’s next wave of DC figures. This wave includes Azrael sporting his new Batman armor from Batman: Curse of the White Knight. The Clown Prince of Crime and the Scarlet Speedster also make an appearance with The Joker’s and The Flash’s classic looks from the DC Rebirth. And to round out this new wave is Cyborg from the Teen Titans animated series.

Next up from the Batman Arkham game series are two figures. Deathstroke is back to take on Batman in his Arkham origin look. This next figure is from Batman Arkham Knight and sees the Dark Knight don a more armored look ready to take on any threat. Both of these figures will be available in the Fall of 2020.

At the con McFarlane Toys also announced two new multi-packs coming out soon. The first features The Flash taking on the Red Death. The next is a battle of Robins as we see two of Batman’s former sidekicks, Nightwing and the Red Hood battle it out.

Finally, McFarlane Toys brings the Flashpoint Batman an alternate universe version of the caped crusader that is actually Thomas Wayne as opposed to his son Bruce Wayne.

SDCC 2020: Todd McFarlane Reveals a New Creature Line RAW10

McFarlane Toys has announced a new McFarlane designed creature toy line RAW10 coming exclusively to Walmart.  McFarlane and the award-winning McFarlane Toys’ design team have created a brand-new toy line and online comic series for creature and monster fans of all ages.

In the near future, the worlds of Super-Science and Primal Savagery have merged. Hidden away from prying eyes, the secret laboratories of RAW10 have created powerful warriors: part beast, part machine! But some have rebelled against their creator and have chosen to fight on the side of Humanity! Who will prove to be the strongest!

The first line of RAW10 toys features McFarlane’s classic and fan-favorite comic gorilla CY-GOR, and brand-new McFarlane designed monsters and creatures.  McFarlane Toys RAW10 creature toy line is available exclusively at Walmart.

The CY-GOR large set features moveable arms, legs, and head and comes with a FREE CY-GOR mini-comic poster. MSRP $19.99

CY-GOR is the pinnacle of the Robotic Animal Weapon (RAW) labs’ science. He is the perfect combination of beast and machine. Designed as a test subject for RAW’s newest cybernetic enhancements, CY-GOR exceeded his potential to become RAW’s greatest success. His brute strength is augmented with metallic muscles, and his intellect, instincts, and reflexes are perfectly tuned with his built-in combat matrix. He was created to be a next-gen warrior. Now, the perfect weapon is on the loose and out of control.

FREN-Z was created to be the prototype for a new breed of aquatic weaponry. But the dangerous minds at the Robotic Animal Warrior (RAW) labs did their job too well, and FREN-Z escaped. Now he stalks the oceans, an unstoppable hunter—part-shark, part-machine, all-deadly.

CODENAME: RAPTAR

ATTACKS: Claw Strike, Tail Whip, Power Bite

The RAPTAR features movable arms, legs, and head and comes with a FREE RAPTAR mini-poster. MSRP $9.99.

RAPTAR, and his wicked velociraptor brothers, were created in the top-secret Robotic Animal Warrior (RAW) labs. Combining ancient dinosaur DNA with advanced cybernetic machinery, the mad scientists in charge of RAW labs wanted to create the ultimate hunting party. The result was a trio of vicious beasts led by RAPTAR. Using linked intelligence coding, the brothers hunt as one, taking their commands from RAPTAR, and can track any target over any terrain. Alone they are dangerous. Together, they are unstoppable.

CODENAME: BATTLESNAKE
SPECIES: King Cobra / Rattlesnake hybrid
ATTACKS: Coil Strike, Fang Strike, Hypno Gaze

The BATTLESNAKE small set comes with a flexible tale, moveable jaw, and articulated slide-out tongue and a FREE BATTLESNAKE mini-comic poster. MSRP $9.99

Fusing reptile DNA with radical cyber-technology and self-powered Ion Core Energy systems, the engineers in the top-secret Robotic Animal Warrior (RAW) labs created a real monster. Possessing genius-level intelligence and futuristic combat programming, BATTLESNAKE can hypnotize his prey before striking with his piercing “techno fangs.” His super-steel underbelly and reinforced hood protect him from attacks, and his sinister mind makes him a threat to all living things.

Movie Review: Todd McFarlane: Like Hell I Won’t

Todd McFarlane: Like Hell I Won't

Todd McFarlane: Like Hell I Won’t celebrates McFarlane’s history breaking run on Spawn and is a look at his career. The documentary intersperses footage from conventions, testimonials, and McFarlane himself. He recounts his time in comics with a recurring theme of “drive”. The documentary is an interesting one that mostly props McFarlane up with little criticism. In that way, it feels a bit glossed over in history and is an incomplete picture of his actual career in comics, film, television, and toys. But, the documentary goes through some interesting history doing a fine job of catching up those that might not know it.

From McFarlane’s beginning to modern times, the documentary covers a career that’s been focused and full of drive. From his early comic career to his start at Marvel, we get to see how his early years was one of luck that opened opportunity. We get some strife as he admits that his time at Marvel was one of being pushed back on with his style but he also praises some people he was able to work with there and the opportunities he received. It’s a look at working within a corporate structure as an artist.

But, where things get interesting is when the documentary shifts away from Marvel. While the formation of Image goes quickly, the documentary focuses on the collapse of the comic industry and how McFarlane weathered the storm. We get to see the pillars by which he built his empire and his shift from comics to film, television, video games, and most importantly toys. Though that too is painted as nothing but success with little failure or issues.

Todd McFarlane: Like Hell I Won’t isn’t all roses. A few minutes of it towards the end are dedicated to lawsuits and bankruptcy though all of them are just touched upon with little detail. McFarlane attempts to wash over the time as if success begets lawsuits, and there’s nothing more than others seeing opportunity. It comes off as if he did nothing wrong and everyone else was the issue. The documentary though highlights the losses. The rocky history of Image isn’t mentioned and his Chapter 11 filing is briefly mentioned. Though there’s been success there were failures too that aren’t explored enough. And that makes sense based on Todd McFarlane: Like Hell I Won’t’s focus. The documentary is meant as a puff celebration of Spawn #300, not as a hard-hitting history.

The documentary is about McFarlane’s belief. It’s about the belief in himself and his vision of how things should go. And it’s clearly worked for him. Spawn is still going, well past issue #300, setting a record each month witch each new release. McFarlane Toys continues to inovate and maybe we’ll eventually see Spawn on film again some day. McFarlane has had a successful career and Todd McFarlane: Like Hell I Won’t is focused on that. It dances around his impact. It dances around the industry has changed yet he remains. There’s so much more that could have been explored and expanded upon to make this documentary interesting. But, the final product feels a bit like a late night informercial, an advertisement wrapped up as something else.

If you don’t know anything about Todd McFarlane, a super fan, or a fan of Spawn, then Todd McFarlane: Like Hell I Won’t might be interesting. It’s surface deep in details dancing around the depth and never exploring statements or giving any examples of impact. For those looking at an exploration of comic history, even McFarlane’s career, there’s so many other documentaries and books to spend your time with.

Todd McFarlane: Like Hell I Won’t debuts on SyFY on July 25 at 11pm ET.

Super-Articulate: A Few Post-Game Thoughts on Toy Fair 2020

As anyone paying much attention knows, Toy Fair International stormed through New York last week. It also doesn’t take much effort to declare Hasbro the big winner. But I did want to take a look at a few fan relevant properties, offer some thoughts, and solicit opinions.

Star Wars: Preview day clearly belonged to The Child, aka Baby Yoda. The toys were all over the media, including Good Morning America. With The Mandalorian a hit and the littlest Jedi its break-out star, this was probably the easiest sell of the show. It makes sense that Hasbro would put effort into the differing scales targeted at kids at this particular moment; the advent of The Child and the return of Clone Wars makes that an easy position to take.

I also think that we expected some kind of Empire Strikes Back anniversary initiative. The rumored Black Series Snowspeeder showed up and looks awesome; I’m glad that Hasbro isn’t afraid to get into the big vehicles. In terms of Star Wars, I only had two let-downs, but they’ll probably be addressed at SDCC and other venues. And those are . . . 1) I wanted to see a new Black Series Ahsoka and 2) I wanted to see more Black Series Mandalorian characters, like The Armorer, Greef Karga, and Kuiil. I have spoken.

G.I. Joe Classified: Again, another rumor comes true as the Joes finally get a highly-detailed 6-inch line. The initial Snake-Eyes offering looks simply incredible. I know that reaction has been mixed on Roadblock, Duke, and Scarlett in terms of costume choices, but I think they look great. Now give me Storm Shadow, please.

Ghostbusters: I love everything they’re doing here. They’re committed to fans of both the films and the cartoons while offering choices for kids and adult collectors. The 6-inch Plasma Series looks outstanding, and the inclusion of a BAF Terror Dog makes complete sense. Well-done all the way around.

Marvel Legends: Again, I’m not surprised that Hasbro didn’t show us the entire year of product. However, they did show A LOT of product. Anyone that’s ever read me for any period of time knows that I’m elated that the First Appearance Storm is happening. That was my big winner, along with Nimrod. Things that the ML line is doing right: the stand-alone deluxe figures, embracing the Fox movie figures, the slow but certain inclusion of characters needed to complete teams (Rage, Mach-1, etc.), the Hasbro Pulse “army builders,” and a commitment to figures from specific eras or stories (Old Man Hawkeye, X-Men Legacy Rogue, etc.). And incidentally, that pinless tech on the sculpts sounds like a great thing. My only real complaints here amount to “What about Figure X?” or “When do see Assortment Y?” Which, really, aren’t complaints.

McFarlane Toys: I feel like McFarlane is back in a big way, even if they never left. The bulk of this, of course, is their substantial roll-out of DC product. From the looks of it, they’re going to continue to lean in with films, comics, and video games for DC, which is wise. I would have liked to have seen some more characters at the show than Batman/Wonder Woman, but there’s obviously a lot of time left in the year. The Mortal Kombat figures looked good, and the upgrade to the original six Spawn figures is a great idea. Not so sure about the Kickstarter component of that, but it WILL get the characters back in the public eye on the back of last year’s massive comic sales spike for the anniversary.

All right, gang. Let’s hear what you thought.
