Darth Maul, the last of the announced Star Wars figures released today (excepting Boba Fett, who’s already released, but timed exclusive until early next year), and a couple slick new promo photos dropped with him.
DARTH MAUL: The deadly Darth Maul uses his double-bladed Lightsaber™ and dark side Force™ powers in death-defying duels against his enemies.
And for Marvel fans who’ve been waiting since the summer, we also finally got our Age of Ultron figures, Hulkbuster and Ultron!
ULTRON: Ultron, the world’s most advanced robot and maniacal Super Villain, will stop at nothing to destroy humanity and their protectors, the mighty Avengers. With the ability to summon duplicate robotic sentries, the character uses magnetic pull followed by a powerful blast of energy to defeat his foes.
HULKBUSTER: Hulkbuster, the mega-sized armor created by Tony Stark, combines the incredible force of Hulk with the tech capabilities of Iron Man. A brute tank, Hulkbuster’s powerful combo attacks are great at dealing with nearby groups of enemies while his Thruster Dash makes up for his lack of overall speed, allowing him to close distance with targets easily. Missiles, thrusters for flight and a suit-integrated tractor beam complement this powerhouse.
I don’t know about you guys, but I’m looking forward to getting to try that flight/force pull combo from Ultron!
Also, for anyone who’s excited about the Good Dinosaur (I’m sure there’s some of you!), Spot and the Good Dinosaur power discs also released, with their own array of new promo photos.
SPOT: Spot is a wild, tough and tenacious human boy who thinks and acts like a dog. Using his hands, feet and teeth he keeps enemies at bay.
Lastly, we’ve also got info to share about the Good Dinosaur power discs from today’s press release.
Disney/Pixar’s The Good Dinosaur Power Disc Pack comes with four Power Discs that introduce dinosaur mounts to the Toy Box.
- Nash – Call on Nash, the tough cattle ranching T. rex, to help you explore the Toy Box.
- Arlo – Create epic adventures with Arlo, your big-hearted Apatosaurus friend.
- Butch – No Toy Box adventure is too big for Butch, the toughest T. rex you’ll ever meet.
- Ramsey – Call on Ramsey to help you seek out rustlers and stomp around the Toy Box.
We want to bring you our usual set of release day deals for you guys, but the deals on figures seem pretty scant this week (and wehaven’t seen any deals at all on power disc packs).
The cheapest prices on individual figures come from Amazon and Walmart, who have the new figures for $12.99-$13.00, which is about a dollar off.
- Ultron for $12.99 (Amazon/Walmart)
- Hulkbuster for $12.99 (Amazon/Walmart)
- Darth Maul for $13.00 (Amazon/Walmart)
But unfortunately, nobody seems to want to offer a deal on Spot, who’s still going for $13.96 minimum.
It’s worth noting that Best Buy is running a save $5 when you buy two figures deal, which would be the best deal on the new figures, except that some Reddit users are reporting they can’t get the deal to work on the new figures (perhaps only an issue online).
Have you found a better deal? Post below, and let us know!
