Superhero Hype’s 2020 Holiday Gift Guide For Toys and Collectibles
Santa Claus still brings toys to big girls and boys (and those who identify otherwise), but they’re bigger, rarer, and more valuable. Also not as easy to find at retail, since grown-up collectors get to visit and stake out stores with a frequency kids can’t match. We’ve scoured Amazon and other sites for some of the best superhero stuff in this department, but be warned. Toys and collectibles are more subject than most items in our guides to sell out. As of the time of writing, however, everything in our toys and collectibles holiday gift guide 2020, below, remained in stock.
Finally, a movie-styled Venom action figure to remind us of the most bonkers mainstream superhero movie since Deadpool. Perhaps appropriately, then, the build-a-figure in this wave is a massive Venom/Deadpool hybrid. The rest of the wave includes future movie star Morbius, and a handful of other symbiotes, from Venomized Gwen Stacy and Miles Morales to a new Carnage.
The 6-inch scale Star Wars Black Series rarely produces vehicles above the size of a basic speeder, since they have to be so large and detailed. But now the Rebel Snowspeeder proves a worthy foe for the previous TIE Fighter release, with retractable landing gear, harpoon and cable. And an exclusive figure of Luke’s doomed gunner Dak. Clear some shelf space; it’ll be worth it.
Transformers Toys Studio Series 69 Revenge of The Fallen Devastator Constructicon Action Figures 8-Pack
Why run around trying to collect all eight movie Constructicons and worry about keeping the instructions straight? Grab them all in one shot with this boxed set that allows for a Devastator build right out of the box. No, he does not sport that particular bit of anatomy referenced in Revenge of the Fallen, but the details are otherwise scanned from original special effects models. And he can also appear as eight separate robots or vehicles. Includes exclusive giant pyramid display backdrop sized for a combiner.
Rosario Dawson action figure. Half price. Do we have to spell this out? Ahsoka Tano customizers are going to figure this out soon, so work fast.
Dune Action Figures (Target Exclusive)
Dune won’t see theatrical release for at least another year, but the toys are here already. Toys from David Lynch’s ’80s Dune remain highly sought after; grab these now while Denis Villeneuve’s version remains a relatively unknown quantity. Besides, how often do we see the likes of Timothee Chalamet and Javier Bardem rendered in poseable plastic?
The Batman Who Laughs Rising | Cooperative Board Game | Featuring DC Comics Heroes and Villains – Wonder Woman, Green Lantern, Hawkgirl, Batman, Harley Quinn, The Flash, Cyborg | Licensed Batman Game

In this board game, players must work together to build up a team of heroes and allies to stop him. Suggested for 1-4 players ages 15 and up, the game also includes an exclusive miniature collectible figurine of the Bat-villain and three of his infected evil Robins.
Anyone with the cash to shell out for a Hot Toys figure has many choices, but the safest bets are the most iconic characters. So it’s hard to go wrong with Din Djarin as he first appeared on everyone’s favorite Baby Yoda show. Standing on a desert base that includes a Stormtrooper head on a pike, the Mandalorian includes an interchangeable shoulder pauldron, show-accurate weapons, and incredible detail and articulation. And unlike the Bounty Hunter’s Guild, Sideshow’s website allows a monthly payment plan.
