We finally get to see number twenty-eight! I had wondered if it was going to be a new Black Widow and had just been put off because of the movie, but apparently not. We’ve got another Venom figure. This one comes with slime and injectors. You can actually inject the slime into the figure and it will ooze out all gross like. The pictures on the store look cool, but I don’t know how reusable that slime would be. It seems like you’d get two good uses out and then if you’re able to gather it up a couple less than good uses. There’s no mention of a slime recipe or slime that could be used when this runs out.
I’m not a fan of Venom so this isn’t a figure I care too much about. It is at least a new take on the figures with the whole slime aspect.
We’ve got a new MARVEL Toybox figure. I was expecting Loki. So far they’ve done characters for all of their Disney+ TV shows so it makes sense. Honestly, he looks kind of eh. His picture on the side of the box is much better, you can see that at the Disney Store. The blue stone in the staff seems so dull, not sure why they didn’t go for something more shiny. Oh well, the MARVEL line continues to be meh.
It looks like the Disney store has a few re-issues right now. Briefly yesterday The Mandalorian and Child were available. Jango and Toy Story RC Car are also showing up. So if you missed out on them earlier, like I did, then now’s your time.
The Mandalorian and Jango showing up makes me think that someone is reading my blog. If that’s the case…how about a Finn figure? Mace Windu? Some more POC? Maybe some Disney Princesses? You know, if you’re looking for some ideas.
It looks like they’ve reissued Darth Vader. He popped up on the online store today. A quick comparison of the older version shows very little differences. The only thing I noticed was the lights on his chest have a different light pattern. I find it amusing that in their promotional picture it looks like his lightsaber is bent.
With this reissue I’m really hoping that they’ll do the same with Jango and The Mandalorian. It’s probably much more likely to happen with Mando than Jango, but we’ll see. Stranger things have happened with these toys.
Since my last post a few of the other figures have gone on sale. It’s worth a look if you’re missing some that you want.
Just yesterday I posted that Simba and General Grievous had been spotted in stores. Now it looks like them as well as a new Stormtrooper are available. Simba didn’t end up being more expensive than the others. However, General Grievous is $14.99
If you’re looking to pick up any other characters Darth Maul appears to be the only one on sale right now. If you spend $75 or more you’ll get free shipping. So keep that in mind.
