A TOY (Pre-Order) KINDA MOOD [Moody List]: Action Figure Release Dates.

Travis Moody

Tell me, fellow toy-heads, you’re probably wondering how many damned action figure pre-orders you’ve placed, right? Worse, you’re probably wondering how much you’ve got evaporating your bank account to ash for the next.. oh.. 8-9.. years.. amiright?

Well, this personal list of Moody pre-orders might just help–you cry. But it might otherwise help your realize how many toys you’ve got landing on your porch on the following particular promised days, weeks, and months. As per usual, even in a.. sorta kinda maybe post-COVID world.. expect a ton of shipping and factory production delays, which should change many of these dates and may very well be a blessing to your wallet.

Do note: The following list only contains the action figures yours truly has pre-ordered. There are plenty of Hasbro, Mattel, Mezco, S.H. Figuarts, MAFEX, McFarlane figs (etc. etc.) that are not dated here. I also don’t collect NECA TMNT, only (right now) cherry-picking Super7 Thundercats (and with those severe delays, I ain’t mad at it) and MOTU Origins. Why? Because my roommate collects them, and I can save hundreds (or more) just appreciating his collection from not too afar. There are also toys I want to see in-hand, in-person, even if I know fully damned well the odds of seeing those next few AEW Unrivaled/Unmatched waves in the flesh at Walmart are even more unlikely than seeing Mox lose a match on Dark. Oh, well.
