McFarlane Toys Releases Two Wonder Woman 1984 Figures

The world needs Wonder Woman and McFarlane Toys has you covered with two new DC Multiverse 7-inch Wonder Woman Figures based on the highly anticipated feature film Wonder Woman 1984.

Each figure is designed with ultra-articulation – up to 22 moving parts for full range of posing and play. Both come with picture-perfect likeness and highly detailed costumes and accessories.

From Amazon princess to the world’s greatest warrior, Wonder Woman is at the height of her power but living a quiet life as Smithsonian curator Diana Prince.  Her compassion for mankind is strong despite man’s flaws.  But now she must again draw on her incredible strength, courage, and wisdom to battle her greatest foe—The Cheetah. 

Wonder Woman: Wonder Woman 1984 accessories include unfurled lasso, wrapped lasso, and base, and a collectible art card with Wonder Woman 1984 artwork on the front, and character biography on the back.

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.

At Toy Fair, Todd McFarlane revealed that McFarlane Toys will be bringing new Spawn figures to Kickstarter. The plan is to release the original six figures with new updated sculpts and retro packaging.

Super-Articulate: What Will the Wizarding World Bring?

These things we know. We know that McFarlane Toys has the Harry Potter/Wizarding World license. We know that four figures (Harry, Ron, Hermione, and Voldemort from HP&TDH2) and one Hippogriff are up for pre-order. We know that McFarlane will likely bring their long history of A-game sculpting to the line. Here’s what we don’t know: why has no one else ever made a successful long-term go of a Harry Potter action figure line?

Early in the life of the films, Mattel picked up the license for the line. And they, well, they Matteled, didn’t they? Those early figures (shown on the shelves in the pictures) lack inspired sculpting; consider that these figures were coming out against Toy Biz’s Lord of the Rings line, among others, and you’ll see that they effort just wasn’t there. Factor in early gaffes like the famously backward-armed Dumbledore, unequal pack-outs of Fred and George, and other weirdness, and one might remember those early message boards being rife with complaints. A second group came out for the second film, but the scale was off and they kind of stiffed at retail.

NECA picked it up later with some good sculpts (like this Harry and Sirius), but they didn’t make an overly large amount. In 2007, PopCo picked up the European license and did some decent figures. Mattel even recently came back to make some “action figure dolls” of the leads, McGonagall and Dumbledore. However, the fact remains that there’s never been a truly comprehensive line at U.S. retail.

Mattel Harry Potter Figures

McFarlane has a crack at changing that. Aside from their general quality, they have wide-ranging distribution. The first four figures also have clever accessories; Harry, Hermione, and Ron each come with their patronus, and Voldemort is packed with Nagini. I also like the idea that McFarlane is starting with The Deathly Hollows Part II. For one thing, it’s the last film in the series, and the one that is the freshest in our minds, overall; for another, these versions of the cast have simply never been done before. It’s also a film that includes a huge variety of characters (the Weasleys, the Order, the Malfoys, most of the professors, Neville, Cho, Hagrid, etc.), so you could conceivably go about knocking out a big portion of the cast just from that film before reaching back into other stories and characters.

It’s important to note that the license in for the Wizarding World, so it also includes Fantastic Beasts. Buckbeak the Hippogriff looks great, so I’m already looking forward to what they do with other magical creatures. I think it would be smart for McFarlane to do an assortment of the main four humans (Newt, Tina, Queenie, and Jacob) at some point in the near future to plant a flag for the franchise, given that the third film now won’t be released until 2021.
