Marvel Legends Summer 2016 Exclusive Packs Released!

Marvel Legends Vision Sam Wilson Kate Bishop 3 Pack Released

With hundreds of Marvel action figures getting released each year, sometimes a few fall through the cracks for a few days and then I don’t write a release blurb for them because I think it’s not really “news” anymore. But the dozens of readers writing in to me each day urging me to talk about the 2016 Target and Toys R Us Marvel Legends exclusives seem to think otherwise, so let’s take a look at this summer’s multi-packs…

Gentle Giant Skottie Young Vision Animated Statue Pre-Order!

Back of Marvel Babies Vision Statue

Ever since the Gentle Giant Marvel Animated statues line (inspired by the Skottie Young Marvel Babies artwork) began, Gentle Giant has delivered headliner A-List character after A-List character in it, from Iron Man to Deadpool to Spider-Gwen. But at SDCC 2016, the next entry in the line was revealed, and while he’s never been a hugely popular mainstream character, I’m looking forward to having him nonetheless: the Marvel Animated Gentle Giant Vision statue is now up for order! And hey–there’s something for bookend collectors too…

Kotobukiya Miles Morales Spider-Man ARTFX+ Statue!

Kotobukiya Miles Morales ARTFX+ Statue Close-Up

Up until now, every single character that Kotobukiya has released as part of their 1/10 scale Marvel ARTFX+ statues range has been a classic, decades-old character. But there’s a first time for everything, and the first modern-created character to grace this style is about to arrive as the second entry in the Spider-Man ARTFX+ Series! He swung into our hearts five years ago this month, and now he’s web-slinging into our statue collections–the Kotobukiya Spider-Man Miles Morales ARTFX+ Statue is now up for order!

Marvel Collector Corps Spider-Man Box Review & Spoilers!

Funko Marvel Collector Corps Spider-Man Box Review

Ordinarily I write up a whole article detailing my speculations regarding what’s going to be in each Funko Marvel box, but after the Deadpool box, I think we all knew what to expect from the Marvel Collector Corps Spider-Man box.

To put it mildly, the ThreeA Toys Marvel figures released up until now have not been for everyone.
