• Mattel is making a 1:1 Back to the Future hoverboard prop. The way everyone seems to be losing their shit over it I thought it would actually hover, but apparently that's not the case (it "glides" and makes "whooshing noises," though, so... yay?). It'll be up for pre-order in March and run you $120.
• ToyNewsI has a gallery of Playmates' TMNT toys here. There's some capybara-type mutant I don't recognize, and artwork of upcoming characters I do -- i.e., Metalhead, Baxter Stockman, and a few others.
• Diamond Select got The Expendables license. This makes me extremely happy.
• NECA got the Prometheus license. This makes me exceedingly disinterested.
• NECA is also making a figure of Greta the Lady Gremlin. This will make TR contributor Chris Cummins extremely happy, and makes me cry.
• There's finally going to be a good Legend of Zelda Link figure, courtesy of the Japanese Figma line. You can see the unpainted prototype at Kotaku.
