Spin Master is Fast with Release of The Flash Toys so They’re Not Gone Tomorrow

Whether people want to support the next film from DC Entertainment or not, The Flash toys may well be something kids want–especially when there’s a Batwing involved!

The Flash Teaser Movie PosterSpin Master Toys is getting far ahead of the game with the release of The Flash toys ahead of its release on June 16th.

Whether these super hero movies do well depends on how much merchandise is out there these days. With Shazam: Fury of the Gods, all we have so far are product from Funko! Pops and McFarlene Toys. Having additional product from the said movie to play with is a good thing and to not have enough can hurt overall impressions. I’m surprised there is no dragon, since I’d really want to own that!

But for The Flash, I still feel it’s all about the caped crusader. Batman will be the hero more so than the Scarlet Speedster. I’m glad this toy company knows that and in their first wave of product release, have the latter item available:

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

Spin Master Has Black Adam Action Figures, and the best toy is with the Power Punch!

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. Continue reading “Black Adam Action Figures. Is it Lighting in a Bottle for Spin Master?”

SpinMaster & DC’s Plans for The Batman Merch!

Spinmaster and DC partnered up to craft this line of The Batman merchandise.

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.
