Welcome to the latest edition of BC Toy Spotting! We are in and out of stores pretty much every day, and we figure (ha!) why not show all of our fellow collectors what we are coming across on pegs and shelves. As collectors, we know that staying on top of what is in stores can be almost a full time job, so we are here to help you with your toy hunts and outings. This week we found new Funko product as we always do, new Transformers continue to hit pegs, some new NECA figures, Loyal Subjects, and some figures from some little indie film called Avengers: Endgame ahead of street date! Let’s take a look.
Starting off with this weeks Funko finds, the latest Captain Marvel Pops are flooding stores, and at this point its next to impossible to avoid them. Carol holding the Tesseract in the lunchbox, Goose going full Flerken, and more are all available. New Harry Potter, Aladdin, and Fallout 5 Star figures are now in stores, along with Funko cereals for Rugrats, Power Rangers, and Rick and Morty. The Green Ranger cereal was a ECCC shared exclusive with FYE, and other shared ECCC exclusives are still around in stores. Zoolander Pops are still shipping, as is director Guillermo del Toro. Rounding out this week is the new Little Mermaid Ariel exclusive hitting BoxLunch right now.
While at FYE I also found new horror Tiki mugs for Pennywise and Pinhead, NECA’s Paleface figure from Pan’s Labyrinth, and the new wave of horror icons Loyal Subjects figures.
Transformers findings this week include the new wave of War for Cybertron: Siege figures. Chromia, Six-Gun, Ironhide, and Prowl are popping up more and more at the moment, along with Studio Series Rampage and Optimus Prime from Bumblebee.
Gamestop this week got in the new wave of Diamond Select Kingdom Hearts figures featuring Tron, the new NECA Spyro the Dragon figure, two more Marvel Mini Heroes figures, and the latest DC Collectibles Essential wave.
Other awesome items this week include two new great Hellboy shirts at Hot Topic celebrating his 25th anniversary and the new film, the 12 inch Mattel Dr. Sivana from Shazam!, and the Bruce Lee MEGO doll is in stores now.
Finally this week, my local Target totally broke street date and put out the first wave of Hasbro’s basic figures from Avengers: Endgame. People sleep on these figures because of Legends, but these are pretty awesome for the price point, especially for younger kids. This wave features some of the Avengers in their suits from the trailer, along with Ronin, War Machine, and a Captain Marvel. Street date for Avengers product is March 31, so be on the lookout everyone!
