Toy Fair 2020: Mattel Circling a Mighty Max Return?

Mighty Max Toys
HERE WE GO!! We are mere days away from the new year, and as the sun rises on a new decade, so will we begin to see new toys news trickling out from points all around the globe. First up, we visit with Mattel. The tail end of 2019 saw the last DC Multiverse figures hit retail pegs, leaving Spin Master and McFarlane toys ready to show off their new kid focused and adult collector lines, respectively, in the very start of 2020. While Mattel are still chugging along with powerhouse names in the "boys toys" categories like Jurassic World, WWE and MEGA Construx, there's still a little room at retail for more. Maybe just a little space for some little bitty figures?

NECA's Trick R Treat Sam Clothed Figure In Action

NECA Trick R Treat Sam Clothed Action Figure
NECA Toys are known for their excellent and expansive array of collectibles and action figures, and most notably, are one of very few companies tackling your favorite horror fiends. Some misguided fans might mistake NECA's clothed action figure releases as something more for those who want to deep dive into the nostalgia of MEGO toys, or even doll collectors, but the die hard fans know that THIS IS WHERE THE ACTION IS!!! Cult classics and woefully under-served films like The Fog and ReAnimator have gotten clothed action figures alongside key appearances from iconic baddies like Super Freddy and Jason Voorhees as a little boy, packed with his homicidal momma. We've just had a release of the slashing doctor Decker from Nightbreed (which we'll show off very soon!) and painfully count the days til we get the alien couple from They Live and the three children sporting face-melting masks from Halloween 3...but UNTIL THAT DAY COMES, we've got a visit from Sam.

No..just kidding, but the new Harley Quinn trailer is so full of sex humor and blood sprays, it may as well have been written by a bunch of 12 year old kids.'s we will watch...and probably groan a lot...and then hate ourselves later. It's something DC and Warner Bros makes us do from time to time.

Harley Quinn has finally broken things off once and for all with the Joker and attempts to make it on her own as the criminal Queenpin of Gotham City in this half-hour adult animated action-comedy series. The series features Harley Quinn, Poison Ivy, and a whole cast of heroes and villains, old and new, from the DC Universe.

First Clip Released from "Never Surrender: A 'Galaxy Quest' Documentary"

Galaxy Quest Group Shot
Twenty years ago next month, a pop-culture phenomenon was born: "Galaxy Quest" came to theaters in December 1999, and though it was a moderate box-office success, the last two decades have seen it become a genuine cult movie. It was also the first movie to really address the power of fandom and the enormous influence of "con-culture."

On Tuesday, November 26, Fathom Events is teaming up with Fandom and Screen Junkies for a one-day-only special in-cinema event: The premiere of NEVER SURRENDER: A 'GALAXY QUEST' DOCUMENTARY, which chronicles the creation of this unique movie.  Featuring appearances by Tim Allen, Sigourney Weaver, Sam Rockwell, Rainn Wilson, Justin Long, Tony Shalhoub, Daryl "Chill" Mitchell, Enrico Colantoni, Missi Pyle, director Dean Parisot, Will Wheaton and Brent Spiner -- among others! -- it's a loving look at the wild production and seemingly impossible odds that "Galaxy Quest" faced on its way to cinematic immortality.

The Curse of Oak Island: The First Six Seasons arrives on DVD 12/10

Lionsgate The Curse of Oak Island 6 seasons
It was an article in a 1965 Reader’s Digest about a possible buried treasure on a small Canadian island that fueled the youthful imaginations of two Michigan-born brothers. Fifty years later, Rick Lagina and his brother Marty were able to purchase most of the island and they now, along with their partners, find themselves at the center of one of the greatest mysteries of all time. HISTORY®’s long-running hit show, THE CURSE OF OAK ISLAND, chronicles every clue, every discovery, and every legend.

Are Marie Antoinette’s jewels hidden in the triangle-shaped swamp? Or could the lost Ark of the Covenant be buried beneath Smith’s Cove? Or is something even more incredible concealed some 200 feet below the surface of the infamous Money Pit? Now everyone who has dreamed of searching for buried treasure can take part in the quest to solve the mystery that has taken the lives of six men so far and — as the legend goes — must claim a seventh before the island will reveal its secrets.

Mattel has never lost the ability to surprise with their releases. While a lot of companies keep up on our toes with constant news and teases of product releases yet to come, Mattel quietly sit back and do their thing, and we often hear about their newest toys when they hit a store and an eager toy fan scoops it up! With Mattel's Mega Construx Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles line winding down, we wondered what great license they would tackle next. Would you have believed Game of Thrones was the answer? I...did not!

NECA's Toony Terrors vs Scooby-Doo: Jason Voorhees Attacks

NECA Toony Terrors Friday the 13th Jason Voorhees Action Figure
From the first moment NECA showed off their new Toony Terrors action figure line, I had only one thought in mind. The iconic killers from our favorite films were so expertly translated into cartoon characters, there was only one gang of monster fighters they could face off against.
THE SCOOBY-DOO GANG!! As luck would have it, Character Toys have just re-released their Scooby action figure line in incredibly affordable 2 packs starring the Scoobies paired with creepy bad guys I did not own yet, all for 6 dollars each. Not a deal I could pass up! With a NECA box of terrors delivered at lightning speed, all that was left was to set the stage, and the Big Kid Toy Store at the New Egypt Flea Market just happened to provide all the supernatural looking settings I needed. SO.. without further gum flapping, here's part one of our photo series in which Velma meets the man behind the mask, Jason Voorhees of Friday the 13th!
