Toy Fair 2018: McFarlane Toys shows off Borderlands, We Happy Few, Stranger Things and more

Todd McFarlane’s toy company is still rocking some pretty big licenses. This year they expend their video game offerings even further with Borderlands and a bobby from We Happy Few.

Toys and games

We already told you about one big new property at McFarlane with Call of Duty. Click here for that story. But to briefly fill you in, Ghost and Soap from Call of Duty: Modern Warfare are heading to plastic. That’s not even remotely the only property that the company is showing off at Toy Fair 2018 however.

McFarlane has a number of them at the convention, from gaming, television, and of course sports. Pretty much everything below is in the 6 – 7″ scale, and comes with 12 points of articulation. Yes, I know that’s not a ton these days, but it kind of is when you’re talking McFarlane.

Let’s break it down with some very nice official imagery from the company.

We Happy Few

Not yet officially released, We Happy Few is a sorta-horror game that’s been in pre-release “trial” mode for a while. We’ve previewed it here, and it’s so far looking solid. It’s also got a very interesting, trippy 1960s aesthetic. McFarlane isn’t doing a whole line or series based on the game, but they are doing a bobby (cop), one of the enemies you’ll face.

The bobby that you see here includes a nightstick, “masked face” head and alternate gas mask head. Look for him this spring.

Stranger Things

A bit of a Netflix phenomenon, Stranger Things has been a runaway hit. The 1980s-flavored horror show just completed its second season and seems to be a lock for season 3. Not to mention action figures, which is just what McFarlane has on tap. These are also some pretty awesome looking toys.

I especially have to mention that Demogorgon, which is 10″ tall and looks just so freaking great. It’s also the only one that’s boxed, as the rest are carded. How cool is that?

Star Trek

The venerable Star Trek franchise makes its debut at McFarlane with a pair of characters that you no doubt know. Captains Kirk and Picard kick things off for the fresh line, which will include staple Trek accessories like phasers and phaser rifles.

There’s also a replica phaser from the new Star Trek Discovery show, which looks pretty cool and includes lights and sounds.


Activision and Bungie’s FPS series Destiny has fast become one of the biggest lines of figures and role-play items at McFarlane. It seems to be a hit with fans too, as it’s spawned a second series of figures. This new set includes heavy-hitters from Destiny 2 like Zavala and actor Nathan Fillion’s Cayde-6. Neat stuff.


Gearbox’ FPS lootfest is getting the full treatment from McFarlane, with a few really cool renditions of classic characters. Kreig, Zero, Lilith, Claptrap, Tiny Tina, and -yes- Handsome Jack are all included in this first wave, and they all look really neat.

As cool as these look, they’re not all of the more traditional scaled figures from McFarlane. The company also has a number of additional lines ready to go for 2018, including The Walking Dead, Attack on Titan, and more. Have a peek at the best of the rest in the gallery below.

Building sets return

In addition to the above, McFarlane is also continuing its building set series’ whcih has grown to include some impressive IPs. Gone are the days of The Walking Dead and Game of Thrones. Those licenses have given way to Rick and Morty, Stephen Universe, Hello Neighbor (yes, really), and South Park. Oh, and of course, Five Nights at Freddy’s is still very much in the mix too.
