Just a few months later unveiling of the first collection, Super7 shared the following lineup for his The Simpsons Ultimates! numbers, and again it fails to provide regular versions of the Simpson family itself. Instead, the closest we get to a masked Bartman figure is joined by Duffman, Krusty the Clown, and Homer’s former employer, Hank Scorpio. Any figure of $55 includes a mountain of accessories that highlight jokes from the animated series and two interchangeable alternative facial expressions. If you can’t decide which one you want, you can do it again pre-order all four in a multi-pack and save yourself zero dollars in the process.
Lego BrickHeadz Stranger Things Demogorgon & Eleven
While Lego is nowhere near the staggering number of pop culture-inspired Funko figures you can collect, Lego has slowly but surely expanded its lineup of BrickHeadz buildable caricatures, with the latest additions featuring two of Netflix’s biggest stars: Eleven and the Demogorgon from Stranger Things. You won’t be able to grab them until February 1, but the 192-piece set includes standard plates and what looks like the first Lego Eggo waffle piece.

Look, these days an action figure movie series will find a way to put the main character in the spotlight as often as possible. So with McFarlane getting his The Batman Batman figure sorted, of course it’s going to be another one that’s Bruce out of his pack. That’s why we get this, a 7 inch scale action figure that is frankly more hoodie than a man, depicting a “drifter” Bruce who seemingly decided to fight crime and looked like he was on his way to a My Chemical Romance gig before he decided that bats were scarier. The Drifter Bruce will be available in two variants, one “masked” (at least, the lower half of his face, presumably not for covid reasons) and an “unmasked” variant exclusive to Target.
However, you’ll probably want the bike to match this version of Bruce. Unfortunately, it’s a separate purchase, one that only comes with the bike itself, a kickstand, and a helmet that Bruce can hold, but apparently doesn’t quite fit over his head. All three figures will be out in February, with the Drifter Bruce (both variants) costing $20 and the bike $30. [Toyark]

Playmobil continues to dig deep into the retro toy bin of the 70s and 80s, previously providing playsets with the A-Team with their van, Doc and Marty and a time-traveling DeLorean, and even the original cast of Star Trek aboard the USS Enterprise, fans of the Hoff will finally be able to add a Playmobil version of Michael Knight, aka David Hasselhoff, to their collections this summer. The new set also comes with Devon Miles and Bonnie Barstow figures, but most will hunt for it because of KITT’s excellent version, which includes a working LED scanner, pop-up headlights, and quotes from the hit 80s show. . You can pre-order it now at Entertainment Earth for $90, with shipping sometime in August.
Hasbro Star Wars: The Mandalorian Potato Head The Yamdalorian and the Tot
This comes a little late now that Grogu is going to Jedi school with Luke and Boba Fett has stolen the Disney+ spotlight from Mando, but we’re not one to turn our noses at another cute Potato Head character. We can’t confirm or deny whether this helmeted hoe works as a bounty hunter, but we do know that this set comes with 14 pieces, including accessories such as a Mandalorian helmet, a Grogu-err, the Tot-in a sling and other face decorations. for those lucky enough to see the Yamdalorian without his helmet on. Are available for pre-order from Entertainment Earth for $16, with shipping expected next month.
Lego BrickHeadz Looney Tunes Road Runner & Wile E. Coyote
Lego has long avoided war vehicles in its playsets — you won’t find buildable tanks or fighter jets for sale — but one of the latest additions to its BrickHeadz collectible collection is some of the most notorious perpetrators of cartoon violence to ever hit the small screen. The 205-piece set includes buildable versions of the wily Wile E. Coyote and his constant target, the Road Runner who is always one step ahead. Available February 1 for $20, the set disappointingly does not contain any Acme accessory, not even a bomb or paintable tunnel.
