What You Need To Do:
Create your own action figure battle [...]
Mattycollector has made some mistakes that cost many Club Eternia Subscribers a fair chance at getting the Masters Of The Universe Classics Spirit Of Hordak figure.
Our friends at Jeditemplearchives received a email from a reader who reported what his friend witnessed at a Wal-Mart in Florida. This story will make you frustrated and outraged on what this mother did!
Toy Hype USA is now on Facebook. Make sure to ‘LIKE’ us to get updates from us.
A Star Wars collector has just hit a new low when it comes to re-packing/swapping, stealing, and returning an action figure to retail for a full refund. Thanks to our friends at Jeditemplearchives, we find out that someone returned a Star Wars The Vintage Collection Nom Anor packaging, and replaced the Nom Anor figure [...]
By now, most of our readers know that the Masters Of The Universe Classics Traveling Convention Exclusive Strobo sold out in Early Access in 1 minute. We are asking Mattel not to offer these low quota figures especially if there isn’t enough to support most of the 2013 Club Eternia Subscribers. We understand that [...]
Fans have expressed concern over the Jaw Bridge height for Castle Grayskull after Mattel posted the measurements (click the thumbnail above for a larger look – image taken by us at NYTF.):
Castle Grayskull update… straight from the Four Horsemen, here are the measurements of the latest sculpt. These were done quick n’ dirty [...]
This morning, we sent Paul at Jeditemplearchives a question about a Emperor Palpatine Target exclusive two-pack we found. Turns out it was a repacked and stolen action figure. Read the story and another one below.
These days, you must always remember to be mindful of what you are buying at retail. If you’re not, [...]
Recently, we had told readers that our January subscriptions of Netossa and Saint Walker were going to be late because Digital River attempted to charge the wrong credit card twice. The first two times we called, two operators took the new information and told us we were set. The third time we had called, [...]

The staff of Toy Hype USA would like to wish everyone a Happy New Year 2013!
Brg.com is reporting that Hasbro and Mattel are uncertain about their futures because of the current generation of children are leaning more towards technology, rather than plastic toys.
The staff of Toy Hype USA wishes everyone a safe and happy holiday season!
Buyer beware! For years now, a handful of dishonest collector’s have been repacking action figures and returning them to the store purchased for a full refund. Some may be an older action figure than what was previously in the box, missing or broken parts, and even in some cases nothing in the box at [...]
The staff of Toy Hype USA has each hand picked what we believe will be on most collector’s want list for the holidays. Some of these gift ideas can also be used for children. We would suggest clicking around each of our sponsors for the best price and availability of each of the items [...]
Mattel launched their Ghostbusters 6″ Classics line-up in 2009 based on the Ghostbusters live-action movie franchise from the 1980′s. Both Ghostbusters I and II had figures made in this line inspired by scenes in the movies. Just like Masters Of The Universe Classics and other Mattycollector lines, this line needs subscription purchases to continue. [...]
On behalf of the staff of Toy Hype USA, we wanted to wish everyone a Happy Thanksgiving!

What a week we’re having. First we joined ‘Ask Matty,’ then we announced that Gentle Giant Studios was added to our sponsor list, and now Nerd Rage Toys. Things are looking up for ToyHypeUSA.
Nerd Rage Toys is a nice on-line toy store with very reasonable prices. They carry a wide selection of old and [...]
We will be starting to cover repacked and returned action figures at retail to help educate people on what to look for in an effort to put an end to this. For too long, a majority of collectors have been purchasing, replacing the new figure with an older figure, and then returning it for [...]
ToyHypeUSA wants to take a moment and remember the lives lost on September 11th, 2001. Our deepest sympathies go out to the victims, their families and friends. Will never forget their sacrifices.
Before I start the review, let me start off by saying that Bandai has indeed cancelled the Thundercats toy line. Although no official statement have been made by Bandai to the press, their actions at New York Toyfair 2012 with dodging all questions about it, and the fact that Amazon.com listed products [...]
Digital River who handles all orders and customer service issues (through Mattycollector) for Mattel sent out this email to all customers. Never before has Digital River sent out an email like this or addressed the entire customer base in such a way in the past. This is a very important email that should be read [...]
