Marvel Selects Black Panther and Captain America for New Figures
Did you know there's a new Marvel movie coming out in a few months? You did? You must have your finger on the pulse. You probably also knew that Diamond Select had a set of new figures coming to the Marvel Select line based on Captain America: Civil War, including a new Winter Soldier, Captain America and Iron Man. Those three won't be the only Civil War stars getting new Marvel Select figures though. This week, new Black Panther and Captain America Marvel Select figures were revealed. Though they won't be based on the incarnations from the Marvel Cinematic Universe, any time we can get a new Black Panther figure is a good one. Even though it's not a direct tie-in to another movie, this Captain America figure will bring Steve Rogers one closer to Spider-Man for the record of most Marvel Select figures. Bucky and Black Widow will see re-releases of previous Marvel Select figures, too, but it's really all about the all-new Cap and T'Challa.

Mondo’s Iron Giant Figure Pre-Sale Opens Wallets At Some Random Time Thursday, Prepare To Weep

Scarecrow, Roxy Rocket to Join DC Collectibles’ Batman: The Animated Series Line
This fall, DC Collectibles' Batman: The Animated Series line will continue to expand its roster of rogues with the additions of Roxy Rocket and Scarecrow. While Roxy has her own appeal, it's The New Adventures of Batman version of Scarecrow -- as the first deluxe figure of the collection -- that will by far give you way more nightmares. Based on his appearance in 'Never Fear', the Scarecrow is the first figure from the anticipated fifth wave of B:TAS figures. Though that episode is decent, it's no match for 'Over the Edge' (the one where Batgirl has a fevered dream about what'd happen if she died in the line of duty), which came just five episodes later. Still, the most important thing is the incredibly terrifying Scarecrow design that's being brought to life. The original Scarecrow design was brilliant, if a bit too Wizard of Oz, but this version... this is a Scarecrow you actually believed might inspire fear.

Judge Not, Lest Ye Be Mezco’s Magnificent New Judge Dredd Figure
You might know Mezco from its diverse line of figures ranging from Axe Cop and the DC Universe to TV shows like Sons of Anarchy and Breaking Bad. While the company has mostly worked in the more standard (read: affordable) action figure market in the past, Mezco's new One:12 Collective line has a more high-end collector in mind. Last year, Mezco announced its first One:12 Collective figure, Batman from The Dark Knight Returns. Now, ahead of Toy Fair 2015, the manufacturer has provided new images of the second figure in the One:12 Collective line--none other than Mega-City One's Judge Dredd.
