Welcome back, Toy Runners to another fine Tuesday. I hope everyone has been staying safe. Unfortunately the coronavirus has affected life in many ways, but thankfully we have a hobby to keep us (somewhat) sane. This week I’ve got a few new custom figures to share with you. Take a look by clicking here!

There is another…. “surprise” today! Site sponsor Entertainment Earth has acquired the former Best Buy exclusive The Black Series [Phase III] Heavy Mandalorian Deluxe 6″ figure. Order it now if you need it!
It’s quite rare that both S.H.Figuarts and Hasbro announce the same figure on the same day. But today both companies officially revealed their version of the Beskar Armor Mandalorian! So I thought a first comparative look at both figures might be fun, based on the promo photos we have! Which figure is more accurate? Which one looks more like the actual character in the series? Click through to find out!
We reported about rumored SHF figures from The Mandalorian a few days ago. Some details were still scarce, but now S.H.Figuarts have officially announced the new figures, yes, you read right, figures, “Baby Yoda” is indeed a single release and NOT an accessory. Also, very important, it seems the Beskar armor Mandalorian has a normal sized helmet, and doesn’t suffer from pinhead syndrome after all! Click through for all the photos and some details!
Welcome back to another fine Tuesday, Toy Runners! This week I have an exciting new delivery from Amazon and a custom to share with you. I updated my shelf display, too so click here to check it out!
Pop culture magazine “Exclumagazine” posted a photo of two new SH Figuarts Star Wars figures that may or may not come later this year. A Beskar armor Mandalorian and the “Child” aka Baby Yoda (which would most likely be an accessory). Please take this with a heavy dosage of salt. Nothing is confirmed, but the Beskar Mandalorian looks legit, he even has the SHF pinhead syndrome that many of their helmeted characters suffer from. There has been a conspicuous absence of announcements from SH Figuarts in recent times, so some new figure reveals would be welcome. Would you add the SHF version of a Beskar armor Mandalorian to your collection? Or would you rather wait for the inevitable Hasbro version?
Michael Biehn will join the Mandalorian cast in season 2! Biehn is certainly best known for his role as “Kyle Reese” in “The Terminator”. Another of his iconic genre roles was “Corporal Hicks” in James Cameron’s “Aliens”. Biehn hasn’t really had any high profile roles in recent years but The Mandalorian may put him in the spotlight again. Details on his role are sparse, but he’s said to portray a bounty hunter who The Mandalorian had business with in the past. But that’s not the only news. It was also announced that Bill Burr will make a return as “Mayfeld” in season 2.
The Mandalorian season 2 is currently in post production, at least for now. Other shows that are in post production are already delayed, among them “The Walking Dead”, where the season finale is currently in post but will have to be pushed back indefinitely. However, there are no news of Lucasfilm or ILM shutting down (whereas Marvel Studios has shut down for the time being), so there’s hope The Mandalorian will return to Disney+ on schedule in October 2020.
Are you excited for Biehn to make a guest appearance on The Mandalorian as a bounty hunter?
Some exciting new customs to share with you this week. I haven’t been able to go on any toy runs due to most places being shut down during the coronavirus scare, but alas, that gives me time to work on some customs.

Yesterday the all new Amazon exclusive LEGO Razorcrest set was announced. It will retail for $129.99, on Amazon (it will also be available from LEGO directly). Release date is September 1st, 2020. The set has 1,023 pieces and comes with several minifigs: The Mandalorian, an exclusive Baby Yoda, IG-11, Greef Carga and a Remnant Scout Trooper. The Razorcrest has at least one all new part, the cockpit piece. Will you add the LEGO Razorcrest to your collection?
A photo of the Black Series Baby Yoda, officially “The Child”, has appeared on Twitter. And in true leaker guild fashion the photo was taken by a potato camera. So you can barely see anything, but it appears to be the real deal! Thanks to Steven U for the alert!
