The Toy Box is a weekly feature at /Film that will round up some of the newest and coolest collectibles, decorations, gadgets and other memorabilia that you nerds might want for your shelves.
In this edition of The Toy Box, there’s quite a bit of new stuff coming to San Diego Comic-Con. The good news is that some of those items will be available for sale after the convention after first being sold at Comic-Con. There’s plenty of new Star Wars figures, a couple new Ghostbusters items, goodies for fans of Transformers, Mighty Morphin’ Power Rangers, Warcraft, Breaking Bad and much more.
See everything in this edition of The Toy Box after the jump.
Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: DreamEx’s 1/6 Scale Shredder Figure
After unveiling their new Casey Jones 1/6 scale figure, DreamEX has another Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles figure, this time on the villain side of things. The nemesis Shredder gets his own figure with two head sculpts (with or without face mask), a removable helmet, sword, interchangeable hands, mutagen container, throwing stars and a communicator. Supposedly the sword and throwing stars are metal as well, so that’s pretty cool. Sadly, no pricing or release date is available yet, but stay tuned to Lunar Toy Store for more.
Star Wars: Gentle Giant’s Ralph McQuarrie Chewbacca Concept Bust
Ralph McQuarrie’s original concept art for Star Wars is legendary, and every now and then some cool collectibles are created to pay tribute to his iconic drawings of characters, vehicles and more. Gentle Giant is the latest to bring Ralph McQuarrie’s art to life with a Chewbacca mini bust. Priced at $120, there were only 400 pieces available for sale, and they’ve since sold out. But maybe you can get ahold of one on eBay or something like that.
LootCrate: Loot4Fangirls Subscription Service
While LootCrate subscriptions have been for collector’s of all ages, there hasn’t been much explicitly created for female fans out there. But LootCrate is changing that with their new Loot4Fangrils subscription service created in conjunction with Her Universe.
The first box in this service will feature characters from Marvel, DC Entertainment, Star Trek and The Walking Dead with five items included. These items include something from Espionage Cosmetics, an exclusive dress from Her Universe, an action figure and some kind of “killer accessory.” Specifics will be announced at San Diego Comic-Con later this month, and fans will be able to purchase Loot4Fangirls starting July 18 with some on sale at the LootCrate booth at Comic-Con as well. Get more details at The Hollywood Reporter.
Warcraft: Gentle Giant Durotan Mini Bust
Joining their batch of San Diego Comic-Con exclusive releases, Gentle Giant has a mini bust of the lead orc Durotan from the feature film adaptation of Warcraft. Priced at $80, there will only be 300 pieces of this 7-inch bust available for purchase at Comic-Con. Or if you’re a Premier Guild Member, you can pre-order the bust right now.
Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them: Funko’s Newt Scamander POP Vinyl Figure
While there’s bound to be plenty of merchandise surrounding the expanding of the Harry Potter universe with Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them, there will only be one figure available at Comic-Con this summer, and it’s coming from Funko. As part of their POP Vinyl line, the titular book’s author Newt Scamander will get his own figure, holding his wand and magical briefcase and wearing a Hufflepuff scarf. Thanks to Entertainment Weekly for the reveal.
