Hasbro has a page where you can order a Cloverfield action figure. There’s no image up, but this is a 14″ tall limited edition figure of the monster with 70 points of articulation and a number of accessories. Retail price is $99, but this thing isn’t shipping until September 30.
An unnamed, former Mego employee is the source of this amazing collection of Mego toys and mockups that were part of the company’s presentation at Toy Fair 1974.

Last February, Mattel announced it was releasing a competitor to Hasbro’s Attacktix collectible action figure game featuring DC heroes and called DC Battleague.
Since then the line has been seriously revamped, with Mattel dropping the game component entirely, and rebranding these 3″ figures as DC Universe Fighting Figures.

Marvel has its Spider-Man and Friends line of toys for toddlers, and Mattel is soon going to be bringing out a DC Superfriends line aimed at the same market. There are definitely adults who collect these, but I find most of them annoying (my dog, however, loves the ones my son leaves on the floor).
I make an exception for the DC Superfriends Batmobile,
I. Must. Own. That.
