Listen!
Super7 The Simpsons Ultimate! wave 4
Apparently he’s trying to prove he’s a Simpsons superfan by still refusing to give us base versions of Homer, Marge, Bart and Lisa, Wave 4 of Super7’s The Simpsons Ultimates! line digs even deeper into the earlier episodes of the animated series with four new characters that exactly zero collectors crave. New additions include 7-inch versions of Devil Flanders, Radioactive Man, King-Size Homer and Mike Tyson’s Drederick Tatum parody; As with previous shafts, each comes with a slew of accessories and interchangeable heads and hands. They’re available to pre-order now for $55 for Flanders and Radioactive Man, or $65 for Tatum and Homer. Shipping is expected some time in the fall.

Lego Marvel Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania Ant-Man buildable figure
Lego has finally released one of their 9.5-inch buildable figures that can be used alongside their standard minifigures with a new Ant-Man construction figure that you can just pretend the figure is supersized on himself. The 289-piece figure is highly articulated and comes with a microfigure of the Wasp – although you’ll have to figure out if it’s miniaturized and Ant-Man is regular-sized, or if it’s regular-sized and Ant-Man is actually oversized. It’s available to pre-order now from Lego for $30, with shipping beginning May 1st.
Hasbro Transformers Studio Series Transformers: Rise of the Beasts Deluxe 105 Autobot Mirage
Why Hasbro is so determined to rewrite Transformers history in its films – the one thing fans really buy tickets to – is unknown. Those who grew up with the original cartoons, toys, and even comics will know Mirage as the Ligier JS11 Formula 1 car in his alternate vehicle mode. But for the upcoming Transformers: Rise of the Beasts, he steals Jazz’s identity and transforms into a Porsche 911 Carrera, heavily cross-branded with the automaker. Hasbro’s $25 toy version stands just 4.5 inches tall in bot mode, but transforms into a surprisingly accurate 911 in 24 steps. We suspect Porsche had a lot to say about how this final model turned out.
Lego Marvel Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 sets
It’s hard to say if more sets will be on the way once the film officially hits theaters on May 5th, but Lego has its first installment of Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 sets… which certainly doesn’t give much else away than what we saw in the trailers. The smallest of the three is the 67-piece $10 Guardians of the Galaxy Headquarters, which includes Star Lord and Groot minifigures. The $35, 330-piece Baby Rocket’s Ship takes it a step further and includes both adult and baby Rocket minifigures. And then there’s the $100 1,108-piece New Guardians’ Ship, which includes five minifigures: Mantis, Drax, Star-Lord, Nebula and Lego’s first-ever Adam Warlock figure. All three sets are slated to be available starting April 1, but pre-orders aren’t live yet.
Pokémon Tenth-Scale Wailord Poké Plush
Pokémon Day is a little over a week away (yes, of course it’s a thing), and ahead of the global celebrations, the Pokémon company has unveiled a suitably massive version of one of the greatest Pokémon out there: Wailord. This Wailord Poké Plush is only one-tenth the size of the 47-foot character in the games, meaning it’s just over 57 inches long. If you’re short on space at home, you might have just found your new bed. It’s currently available for pre-order on the US version of the Pokémon Center website for a whopping $420 through March 13, but won’t ship until November, later this year.

Paragon FX Group Jurassic Park Cryogenic Canister
This year marks the 30th anniversary of Jurassic Park, so expect even more merchandise for the film that arguably changed summer blockbusters forever with its groundbreaking use of computer graphics. Paragon FX Group launches with a recreation of one of the film’s most memorable props, which many assumed would be the catalyst for a sequel: the jar of Barbasol shaving cream that Nedry used to attempt to sneak dino embryos off the island . This replica version contains no menthol or refrigeration, but opens to reveal a hinged centrifuge rack full of tubes inside. It’s made from real CNC-machined aluminum for accuracy, which is why this replica will cost $400. Pre-orders are available now and shipping is expected sometime this summer.
Lego BTS Dynamite
If the letters B, T, and S lined up in that order don’t mean much to you, then congratulations on not having seen any pop culture news in the last few years. BTS is a South Korean “boy band” that formed back in 2010 and has since grown into such a global phenomenon that Lego has deemed the group worthy of having a set recreating the music video sit for BTS Megahit Dynamite. The 749-piece $100 set includes minifigure versions of the entire group – Jung Kook, Jimin, SUGA, RM, Jin and j-hope – with accessories like microphones and a stage full of hidden Technic gears for the characters to dance in unison leave up when you turn a wheel. It will be available from March 1st, but cannot be pre-ordered yet.

Jada Toys Hollywood drives RoboCop and a 1/24 scale 1986 Ford Taurus
The filmmakers could easily have packaged RoboCop, the future of crime-fighting, into a souped-up vehicle to rival the ever-over-the-top Batmobile. Instead, the Delta City defender drove what the rest of the city’s police force did: a humble 1986 Ford Taurus, which at the time looked kind of futuristic in its own right. Jada Toys has a 1:24 scale diecast version of Robo’s Road Trip with opening doors, trunk and hood; rubber tires; and a light bar at the top. It also comes with a 2.75-inch RoboCop figure, but we’re not sure if it has enough articulation to climb in or what the price will be. Other vehicles of this line in this magnitude sold for $20 each.
Playmobil Citroën 2CV
Ooh-la-la. In recent years, Playmobil has brought us many fantastically detailed toy versions of real cars – including a racing Porsche and Knight Rider’s KITT – but its latest version downplays the speedometer. This is Lego’s version of the legendary French Citroën 2CV, first presented to the world in Paris in 1948. It’s a very useful vehicle that puts looks second, which Playmobil has managed to capture with this miniature version with room for four passengers, a removable hood, an opening tailgate and interchangeable headlights. It debuts in Europe this month for £44.99 – or about $54.
