We are thrilled to see new products for Batman: The Mask of the Phantasm, Ghostbusters 2, as well as The Nightmare Before Christmas. This is more than just a list announcement Junkies. We supply you with AFJ's take on all of these releases! #AFJ4LIFE
DC GALLERY SUICIDE SQUAD HARLEY QUINN PVC FIG ($45.00)
Harley Quinn is the woman of the hour, the year and the decade, and this all-new PVC diorama captures her latest comic book appearance, with her corset, trademark hammer and red-and-blue pigtails! Sitting atop a crate of dynamite, Harley measures approximately 8 inches tall, and is made of high-quality PVC plastic with collectible-quality painted details. Packaged in a full-color window box. Sculpted by Jean St. Jean!
AFJ's Take: We love the pose and colors here Junkies, Perfection! We expect no less than perfection as Jean St. Jean's name is attached as the sculptor!
MARVEL GALLERY TACO TRUCK DEADPOOL PVC STATUE ($45.00)
Deadpool returns to the Marvel Gallery line in style! Unfortunately, his ride got trashed along the way, and Deadpool is posed atop a destroyed taco truck base, sporting bunny slippers and wielding twin finger guns with the safeties off! This all-new sculpt spotlighting the softer side of Deadpool stands approximately 10 inches tall and is made of high-quality PVC with collectible-quality paint applications. Packaged in a full-color window box. Sculpted by Cortes Studios!
AFJ's Take: Love the pink slippers. Certainly Hasbro as a raunchier version of this coming (he has no pants, seen here) but this is still classic Deadpool.

A Diamond Select Toys release! The nightmare continues! With Tim Burton's The Nightmare Before Christmas still capturing hearts around the world 25 years after its release, Diamond Select Toys is proud to unveil Series 5 of its acclaimed NBX action figure line!

ARROW CW ARROW VINIMATE ($9.99), ARROW CW BLACK CANARY VINIMATE ($9.99), ARROW CW DEATHSTROKE VINIMATE ($9.99)
The Vinimates line is shooting an arrow into hearts everywhere! These 4-inch vinyl figures are based on the popular CW TV show Arrow, and depict three of the show's most popular characters! Sculpted in a block-figure style, Arrow, Black Canary and Deathstroke each strike battle-ready poses inspired by the show, and come packed in full-color window boxes.
AFJ's Take: Diamond has really brought this line along and we love what we are seeing. The hard part for us is pulling the trigger and collecting a whole new type of figure.
BATMAN TAS MASKLESS PHANTASM BUST ($59.99)
Who is the Phantasm? That was the mystery in the feature film Batman: Mask of the Phantasm, which spun out the television hit Batman: The Animated Series. We won't spoil who it was, but you'd better watch it soon, because this unmasked bust will do the talking for us! Depicting the Phantasm dramatically removing the distinctive mask from the film, this approximately 6-inch resin bust is limited to only 3,000 pieces and comes in a numbered, full-color box with a certificate of authenticity. Sculpted by Varner Studios!
AFJ's Take: THANK YOU, THANK YOU, THANK YOU! This is fantastic and perfect to go with last year's anniversary release of the film!
GHOSTBUSTERS 2 SELECT AF SERIES 8 ASST ($25.99)
The boys are back in town! Three new 7-inch scale action figures are joining the ultimate Ghostbusters Action Figure line, each with a piece of the massive firehouse diorama! Based on the sequel Ghostbusters 2, this series features We're Back Peter in his grey jumpsuit, We're Back Winston in his grey jumpsuit, and Slime-Blower Ray Stanz with his massive equipment! Each 7-inch figure comes packaged in the famous Select action figure packaging, ready for display with side-panel artwork for shelf reference. And each contributes to the firehouse doors, getting you that much closer to having a Ghostbusters HQ in your own home! Sculpted by Gentle Giant Studios!
AFJ's Take: We already have the rest of these Junkies (the previous releases). Hands down we will possess these as well.
MARVEL PREM COLL MAGNETO STATUE ($150.00)
Attract a lot of attention when you unbox this 12-inch scale statue! Measuring approximately 16 inches tall, this piece depicts the X-Men's greatest foe-turned-ally hovering over a rocky promontory, summoning a translucent sphere of magnetic energy from the very ground beneath him! Limited to only 3,000 pieces, Magneto comes packaged in a numbered, full-color box with a certificate of authenticity. Sculpted by Phil Ramirez!
