Joy Toy 4″ Space Marine Action Figures

So, what do we know about these guys?

Well, they’re multi-pose action figures for one. Standing at 4″ tall these are considerably smaller than the current products offered by Bandai and McFarlane which are both 7″ models. These are more akin to your classic Star Wars and Ninja Turtles models you played with as kids in the 80’s/90’s.

We’ll explain what it’s about in a mo, for now, let’s just look at the figures

Joy Toy 4-inch Warhammer Space Marine Action Figures - Promo Shot

This is the recently release promo shot used for the eastern pre-order (I’ll get on to that below)

They are all Primaris Reiver style models (in that they are all in Phobos armour), all 8 of them. Why we couldn’t get 10 for 2 full squads is anyone’s guess. But having specific Infiltrator and Incursor models is fantastic.

Thankfully there are some more close up images.

Joy Toy 4-inch Warhammer Space Marine Action Figures - Figures 1-4

Once again, at first glance at these and they look just like normal models. but they aren’t, they are 4″ action figures. The pessimist in me would think that this is how the ‘Eavy Metal team theirs so well, make bigger figures. But I have seen those models up close to know they are real.

What I love about these models particularly is the scaling and style. It’s absolutely spot-on when compared to a normal figure. Something that disappointed me about the Bandai and McFarlane toys.

There, the body size is just a little off and the Aquila specifically is just, well it’s just nothing like what you see on your normal 40k models…

Whilst none of the models above sport a chest Aquilla, the Reiver Skull Symbol on the chest is totally accurate, which gives me good hope for any extension of this line.

To give you a full idea of the scale at 4-inch or 1/18 scale I’ve made this little infographic below

In recent weeks, they have revealed the full line in HD promo images, so we’ll have a look at these.

Joy Toy 4″ Space Marine Action Figures – The Series

With this being an eastern release (at least initially), there’s some fluff around it. Like with Japan’s Space Marine Heroes, there was a whole story piece to really sell on the Warhammer 40,000 universe to be much larger than a few figures.

With this release, every model gets its own little card with some story on it. they’ve even showcased one of these below as a preview. if you collect all 8, it tells a full tale

Read the first one below.

Joy Toy 4″ Space Marine Action Figures – Joy Toy

If you’ve never heard of Joy To before, well, welcome to wanting to collect action figures. Joy Toy has created some incredible models and I can see why they were a choice option for Games Workshop.

The style, design and detail of what they have produced before are just incredible. In a similar style to Titanfall, the majority of their line revolves around future-war army actions and big, BIG Mechs.

No, Not Meks. not yet anyway.

Once again their site is not very English, in fact, it doesn’t even try to be. Their about page isn’t even translateable in Chrome due to the info being presented as images rather than text. but once again we’ve put no effort into getting these things translated for you dear reader.

Honestly, just skip it. It’s only here because I at least translated it and since I put some effort in it may as well stay here. someone may care.

Joy Toy 4″ Space Marine Action Figures – Wave 1

The firs in hopefully multiple waves of Warhammer Action figures feature

Joy Toy 4″ Space Marine Action Figures – Infiltrators

Infiltrators tend to be the more defensive sneaky models on your board, when to comes to action figures, we just get a slightly different style of model, with 3 of them sporting helmets.

Joy Toy – Brother Seargeant Octavio

Octavia is the leader of this stunted (1 -man down) fireteam. he is a direct match to the Squad leader showcased in The Primaris Infiltrator Set from GW. Even the pose is spot on.

Joy Toy 4-inch Warhammer Space Marine Action Figures - Incursor Brother Seargeant Octavio

The main differences in this model are his head, chest grenades and hip-mounted relic.

Joy Toy 4-inch Warhammer Space Marine Action Figures - Incursor Brother Seargeant Octavio Parts

His accessories are standard for this squad, Backpack, 2 right-hand options, 3 left-hand options. A Marksman Bolt Carbine And a Bolt Pistol along with a pistol holster, or holstered pistol option. He also has a set of 4 pouches for extra rounds, his smokes and probably some dice.

Joy Toy – Brother Ruban

Ruban is the most Unique Model and is once again a solid match for the actual model from the Primaris Infiltrator Set

Joy Toy 4-inch Warhammer Space Marine Action Figures - Infiltrator Brother Ruban

Loads of this are unique here, The head, the left arm (which we are not sure is very posable? since the 2 images above show it in the same place) and his hip relic. This model also features a radar dish on his backpack.

Joy Toy 4-inch Warhammer Space Marine Action Figures - Infiltrator Brother Ruban Parts

The loadout is pretty standard, as above but with an additional rardr dish.

Joy Toy – Brother Pullo

Pullo is the redshirt of the group. your absolute depiction of a rank-and-file Parimaris Marine.

Joy Toy 4-inch Warhammer Space Marine Action Figures - Infiltrator Brother Pullo

The head is ever so slightly unique (more on this when we look at the model below), other than that, he has no discernable features to speak of.

Joy Toy 4-inch Warhammer Space Marine Action Figures - Infiltrator Brother Pullo Parts

His optional loadout is also perfectly standard for the set.

Joy Toy – Brother Cyrus

Pullo’s almost-twin brother Cyrus is almost indistinguishable from the model above. Though beneath his helmet I expect he looks a lot like John Malkovich.

Can you spot the difference(s)?

Joy Toy 4-inch Warhammer Space Marine Action Figures - Infiltrator Brother Cyrus

You may not have noticed, but Cyrus has 3 rivets on his brow…

There is a tad more than this but that’s the main difference I can see. The other changes can’t be seen in the pic above, but Cyrus also carries some grenades. Right near his face.

The Arm sculpt (the right arm anyway) is also slightly different, but it’s that little detail (like with our standard 32mm plasticy boys) that shows they put the effort in rather than just tried to be cheap and use the same arm sculpt throughout the range.

Cyrus looks angry, he clearly has a bad attitude, like he’s thinking “For him, you’re somewhere between a cockroach and that white stuff that accumulates at the corner of your mouth when you’re really thirsty.”

Joy Toy 4-inch Warhammer Space Marine Action Figures - Infiltrator Brother Cyrus Parts

Loadout options – Standard.

Joy Toy 4″ Space Marine Action Figures – Incursors

The Incursors are the more aggressive of the MkX Phobos boys, this time armed with Occulus Bolt Carbines. Basically, bolt carbines but with a big viewfinder attached,

These models all showcase themselves as unique due to their individual face sculpts.

Joy Toy – Brother Seargeant Romulo

Here we see the leader of the pack, and yet again he is a match for his counterpart from the Plastic Primaris Incursors set, right down to his grenades and haircut

Joy Toy 4-inch Warhammer Space Marine Action Figures - Incursor Brother Seargeant Romulo

Unique style options are basically the head and the chest grenades

Joy Toy 4-inch Warhammer Space Marine Action Figures - Incursor Brother Seargeant Romulo Parts

Loadout for the Incursors is identical to the Infiltrators other than the weapon and the backpack has been switch up for the Incursor specific options. 2 right hands, 3 left.

We also now have the option of knives which can be sheathed or unsheathed. And the backpack mountable Multi-Spectrum targeting array.

Joy Toy – Brother Varron

Varron is another model which matches an equivalent from the retail set of Plastic Incursors

Joy Toy 4-inch Warhammer Space Marine Action Figures - Incursor Brother Varron

Varron’s unique elements include his head, chest-mounted grenades and he carries a Haywire Mine

Joy Toy 4-inch Warhammer Space Marine Action Figures - Incursor Brother Varron Parts

His optional loadout is standard for the range with the inclusion of said haywire mine

Joy Toy – Brother Remus

Remus is our rank-and-file model this time around, if you check the boxed set promo image for the retail set of Incursors, the closest match to this guy is the one on the back row.

Joy Toy 4-inch Warhammer Space Marine Action Figures - Incursor Brother Remus

He’s unique in that he doesn’t have any grenades attached to his chest. (that probably makes him the clever one).

he also has a unique head.

Joy Toy 4-inch Warhammer Space Marine Action Figures - Incursor Brother Remus Parts

Optional Loadout – boring.

Joy Toy – Brother Aurelian

Ok, I know I said Remus was dull, but Aurelian has just about as much unique stuff on him. but the image below shows just how much more dynamic these guys can look when you give them a more dynamic pose. Once again, matching a model (and pose) from GW’s plastic set.

Joy Toy 4-inch Warhammer Space Marine Action Figures - Incursor Brother Aurelian

His head is unique and he has some grenades on his chest.

Joy Toy 4-inch Warhammer Space Marine Action Figures - Incursor Brother Aurelian Parts

As for optional loadout, just like the above model. Standard.

Joy Toy 4″ Space Marine Action Figures – Price & Availability

Update: 17/09/21 – Warhammer Community announced that these will be available to order (via Made to Order) from 25th September to 2nd October on the Games Workshop Website – If you don’t order between these dates, chances are you may never get these. But don’t worry too much. More styles are coming.

Ahh, this is a difficult one. At present, the official site or even the official store does not list these. They were available on sneak pre-order in their local country for one afternoon at a special price. The only way to have pre-ordered these was to A, know about and B, join the official chat on a platform I can’t understand and is clearly not aimed at or intended for English speakers.

Since then, the only places which seem to stock them are Joy Toy’s official retailers.

I reached out to JoyToy via their Facebook page and asked them Direct, are you shipping thee to any other territories. , in fact, here you go, here;s the whole exchange.

So the TLDR is, there are no plans as yet to bring them outside of China, but the suggestion of “watch this space” fills me with the hope that they will come. Space Marine Heroes did after all.

As they recommended, I sent them an email, but no reply. I have also watched their blog closely, but there have been no further updates since June. But I have managed to get some of these figured ordered at least…

I picked up mine from a site called 5ZeroToys who offer free international shipping. You can see the Infiltrators here and the Incursors here. They cost me $210 USD (About £150) per set of 4. And that’s fairly standard for JoyToy models when buying from a overseas retailer. They should be shipping/arriving around September 12th 2021. so I’ll have a video up with my unboxing impressions ASAP.

You can, however (which would have been smarter) buy them from AliExpress – which is essentially Amazon in eastern territories. Lot’s of people don’t trust AliExpress, but I’ve had a great experience with them. Like Amazon, they are a storefront for various sellers. But unlike Amazon and more like eBay/PayPal, they fully protect you (for 75 days!). So if you are not satisfied with your purchases, you’re fully protected and will get a refund. The seller doesn’t even get their money until you mark it as received and that you are satisfied (or the 75 days runs out).

Check out the Incursors here and Infiltrators here and this time they are only about £100-£120 ($140-$165 USD)per set shipped

You can also see a ton of the other awesome JoyToy products. Just be careful, it can get quite spendy! You will want them all!

At a minimum price of (I’ve found them at anyway) of £100 for a set of 4, that’s still £25 per model. That’s more than a single McFarlane figure and these are only just over half the size!?

But to me, it’s the detail that matters. These are bigger versions of the exact models we collect and paint. Whereas the Mcfarlane models just look wrong in quite a few ways,

Joy Toy 4″ Space Marine Action Figures – Final Thoughts

What do you think of these? I love them, I just love the fact that they look exactly like the models we collect and paint, but they are bigger and we can play with them. Sure they are more expensive than the McFarlane Models but they look better. Almost thrice as much as a modern Ninja Turtle Figure but these are far more detailed. To me, it’s that they are simply more accurate to our wee plastic men, and that’s the best thing of all.

No more daft shaped Aquillas!

I’m so excited to see how people start to pull these apart and paint them to look like the different factions! #JoyToyWarhammer or something like that on insta will be an immediate follow for me.

Right now they are only available to import and I’m not 100% convinced that they will truly come overseas at any point. But if you want these things here, then make sure you let the Warhammer Community Team know. Storm the battlements and demand more info! Yeah, because that’s worked before!

Just ask them politely and see what (if anything) they say. Actually, hold my beer, I’ll do it.

There we go, let’s see what (if anything) they say. Feel free to jump on the bandwagon with a kind nudge.
