Black Adam Action Figures. Is it Lighting in a Bottle for Spin Master?

23 Oct

Black Adam Light UpDespite what critics are saying about the movie, I’ll be keeping my eyes out for what Black Adam Action Figures Spin Master will be releasing next. They have the exclusive DC license to this movie, and unlike those collectables for adults, what’s offered here is designed for abuse.

That is, I might test the quality by putting a firecracker under the toy to emulate what this anti-hero can withstand (as implied by the movie). Despite what the critics are saying about this film and what I said elsewhere, I believe this film is quality WWE style entertainment and nothing else. Anyone expecting more will be let down. It’s best to go in with low expectations.

And as for what’s next, I have high hopes for what wave two will entail! Personally, I hope the other characters will get a “Power Punch” edition. This movie shouldn’t be just about Black Adam. I want a version with Doctor Fate! Also, I’m more excited for what vehicles will be translated over. For now, all we have is one aeroplane to put those heroes in (who can’t fly). Plus, there’s a certain villain I’m waiting for confirmation on instead of me speculating on the next batch.

They have four product lines now available in stores like Amazon, Walmart and Target.

Spinmaster and DC partnered up to craft this line of wave one merchandise. It’s safe to say the release of The Riddler is waiting in the wings after the film’s hits cinemas March 4th. Be warned though, the following contains an image of the re-imagined Penguin and he doesn’t look too happy.

… and ready to show how Patrick McGoohan can be imprisoned (well, his character of No 6 actually) is with Wandering Planet’s Kickstarter campaign to fund the first-ever officially licensed action figure line based on The Prisoner! This cult classic television show starring and created by this actor/producer still continues to influence to this day. The campaign will run from Monday April 19th until Wednesday, May 26th at 6:06 PM PT.  

In 1967 the cult classic TV series, The Prisoner burst onto the screen. The series, about an unnamed British intelligence agent who awakes to find himself trapped in an idyllic seaside village, was not only an instant hit with viewers at the time, it went on to be watched and re-watched obsessively by fans, quickly gaining cult status. And while there have been several collectables released over the decades, The Prisoner has never received a line of officially licensed action figures… until now. Wandering Planet Toys, appointed by ITV Studios, will bring to life 4-inch retro style action figures that celebrate Patrick McGoohan’s brilliant series.
