Before the ridiculousness of the overblown #WheresRey campaign, fans asked a less preposterous question: “Where’s Gamora?” Despite a fair number of Gamora figures released in several major lines in 2014, she legit did have less merch produced and appear on less GOTG paraphernalia than any other main character in the movie. But now Sideshow is giving Gamora a smidge of revenge: the Sideshow Gamora Premium Format Figure statue goes up for order Thursday afternoon!Continue Reading →
I’m committed to completing my review of the entire Captain America Marvel Legends Red Onslaught series before I leave for Toy Fair International 2016 in two days, and I’ve got two figures to talk about in that time. One is an almost 100% new tool that came close to totally blowing me away and is super hot on the aftermarket, and the other… isn’t.
Today I’ll be reviewing the latter: Marvel Legends Whirlwind is now available–should you order one?Continue Reading →
My, how time flies! It feels like just yesterday, but it was actually almost exactly a year ago to the day that I was lamenting that Kotobukiya didn’t have a single one of their X-Men ARTFX+ statues on display at last year’s Toy Fair.
And now, as I get ready to leave for the New York Toy Fair 2016, the penultimate character in the line has been fully revealed: the Kotobukiya X-Men Rogue ARTFX+ Statue is now up for order!Continue Reading →
When Kotobukiya had official photos to show over the weekend alongside the first public look at the painted prototype of their Bishoujo Spider-Gwen statue at Japan’s Winter Wonder Festival 2016, the writing was on the wall that the immensely-anticipated Gwen Stacy staue pre-order was imminent.
And as it turns out, we didn’t have long to wait for her: the Kotobukiya Spider-Gwen Bishoujo statue is now up for order!Continue Reading →
I’m a firm believer in the idea that every character is somebody’s favorite and needs to be treated with respect–but if there’s one character Hasbro has ever produced a 6″ figure of that isn’t anyone’s favorite, it’s likely Cottonmouth. Even so, produce him Hasbro has, and the Marvel Legends Cottonmouth figure is now available! Is it worth expanding your Marvel villains roster with this obscure baddie? Read on for my review…Continue Reading →
When you’re the biggest female breakout star Marvel has had in many years, you don’t have to wait long for your first statue to be released! This weekend at the 2016 Winter Wonder Festival, the Kotobukiya Spider-Gwen Bishoujo statue was fully revealed–including an unmasked Gwen Stacy head!
But Gwen’s not coming alone–Kotobukiya Bishoujo Loki (!!!) and Lady Thor statues were also announced at the event!Continue Reading →
Before we get to the New York Toy Fair 2016 in less than a week (I’m so gonna get run over by a taxi cab), there was a little (huge) show in Japan this weekend called Winter WonderFest 2016 where loads of import Marvel figures were announced. There’s a lot to talk about, but let’s start with one of the cutest toy lines in existence: the Good Smile Company showed off Avengers: Age of Ultron Captain America, Iron Man and Deadpool Nendoroids figures! And they also brought a new Figma: Deadpool!Continue Reading →
When the team lineups were announced for each side in this year’s “Captain America: Civil War” movie, there was one character who really stuck out as being a bit out of their depth: Agent 13. I had my worries that Hasbro might pass on making any merch of Agent 13 for the movie–but while we haven’t heard about a movie-styled version of her, a new comics-based Marvel Legends Sharon Carter figure is now available for order! Does this figure satiate my need for a new Sharon Carter toy? Read on…Continue Reading →
Let there be absolutely no doubt about it: we are living in a golden age for Marvel figures and collectibles. And while the market has been starting to get a wee bit crowded over the past year or two, another company is about to enter the fray. At their pre-New York Toy Fair 2016 press event today, Mezco Toyz revealed the first seven figures that they’ll be releasing in their all-new mixed media Marvel One:12 Collective figures line: Captain America, Daredevil and the Punisher!Continue Reading →
I’m already heavily invested in several Marvel vinyl figure lines (primarily Funko POP Vinyls, Hikari, Dorbz and Disney Vinylmation), so I’ve tried to steer clear of buying many of the Hot Toys Cosbaby Marvel figures.
But, well, sometimes there’s a release that’s just plain irresistible, and the newest addition to the line fits that bill to a ‘D’: the Hot Toys Deadpool Cosbaby figure goes up for order this week!Continue Reading →
As most of you have no doubt heard, a “Confidential”-stamped image of the unannounced Hasbro 2016 Marvel Legends Captain America Civil War Wave 2 series leaked out yesterday, spoiling the upcoming Marvel Legends Giant-Man Build-A-Figure Series. I won’t be posting that image here, but I will post hi-res photos of all the figures in the wave from New York Toy Fair 2016 on 2/13, less than two weeks from now. But while I’m not going to talk about Wave 2, how about we discuss a series that hasn’t had any images leak yet: Captain America Legends Wave 3, headlined by a movie Scarlet Witch, Crossbones, Tigra and more…Continue Reading →
Just when we all thought that Hasbro had produced every feasible, viable iteration of Captain America in action figure form, Hasbro hit us with a version nobody was expecting: Werewolf Captain America!
Some collectors thought we were being punked when the Marvel Legends Cap-Wolf was first shown, but this is no prank: the Captain America Legends Cap-Wolf figure is now available, and he’s a fun (if not flawed) addition to the line…Continue Reading →
Ordinarily I’m not a Monday person, but when Diamond Select Toys announced that two new comics-based Marvel Select figures would be revealed on Monday, February 1st 2016, I knew that this Monday was gonna be a good one–and so it is! After DST announced there was no Black Panther in the Civil War movie line, I knew it was a matter of time until a comics Black Panther was announced. And now he has been–the exclusive Marvel Select Black Panther figure is now up for order… and he’s brought a new Avenging Captain America with him!Continue Reading →
