That’s right fellow Secret Saturday toy lovers, if you live in the UK you may have noticed that the newest Action figures and Cryptid Collection figures have been shipping to your local stores for the past couple months!
Among these are the second wave of action figures which includes Fiskerton and Peicemeal as well as several new cryptids including Hibagon, Owlman, Georgia Pigman, Waitoreke, Cactus Cat and the Atmospheric Jellyfish. This of course means there are still a wave each left due for both lines. These figures yet to be spotted are the Zak, Doyle and Van Rook w/ new accessories and the Allegwi, Chupacabra, Jersey Devil and Mississippi Swamp Ape.
To everyone elsewhere, including us based in the USA it is currently unknown if, where and when these figures will pop up, but let’s all cross our fingers and be sure to check the latest merchandise sightings on our forums.

The Saturdays will be coming in full after the expansion, which is to be released at a currently unknown date. However the good news is, Zak Saturday and Fiskerton are already at Mt. Blackhead in the Pimpleback Mountains. Head over to the jungle outpost at meet them and see the Fiskertrike!
Check these out! Mattel has released “Zak Control” Eyes variants of a few creatures in their Cryptid Collection line of figures. These figures have the yellow “glowing” eyes much like the exclusives in the Toys R Us 4 pack, but these elusive critters are found in the regular cryptids assortment!
The first two of these cryptids under Zak’s influence are Rakshasa and Biloko. You’ll have no trouble distinguishing these from the regular figures as Mattel even went as far as to change the artwork and copy on the boxes as well as include a sticker on the top left of the bubble to differentiate the variants. The figures themselves, apart form the paint application on the eyes, and the stand/cards are no different form their regular counterparts…
