Play Arts Kai Venom Figure Photos & Order Info!

Play Arts Kai Marvel Venom Figure 2015

Square-Enix shocked us by unveiling three all-new Marvel Play Arts Kai variants (that’s two more than I expected) at the New York Toy Fair 2015 back in February, and has continued to tantalize Marvel collectors with glimpses of Spider-Man’s most popular villain ever since.

But the time for teases is over, as the lethal symbiote has now been fully revealed: the Square-Enix Play Arts Kai Venom figure is now up for order!

Hot Toys Thor LED Light Up Hammer with Effects Pieces

Here’s a factoid to give Marvel Hot Toys collectors nightmares: Hot Toys has already posted a double-digit number of Avengers Age of Ultron Hot Toys sixth scale figures for sale this year, with a total cost of over four thousand dollars–and the team isn’t even complete yet!

But after today, the roster will have just one empty spot remaining–the MMS 306 Hot Toys Thor Age of Ultron figure is now up for order! And to my surprise, this Thor is a lot cooler than I expected…

SDCC 2015 Exclusive Kotobukiya Red She-Hulk Bishoujo!

Red She-Hulk Bishoujo Statue SDCC 2015 Exclusive

With only a handful of Marvel Bishoujo statues released between San Diego Comic-Con 2013 and San Diego Comic-Con 2014, it’s always been glaringly obvious to me that we’d be getting an exclusive She-Hulk Bishoujo statue variant at this year’s show.

But I was thinking small potatoes, and Koto was thinking big ones! No, this year’s exclusive isn’t a Fantastic Four She-Hulk–it’s the SDCC 2015 Kotobukiya Red She-Hulk Bishoujo statue!

Ant-Man Marvel Legends Giant-Man Review & Photos

Marvel Legends Ant-Man Giant-Man Review

From creating Ultron to smacking around his wife (The Wasp), there’s probably been more criticism aimed at poor ol’ Hank Pym over the years than any other member of the Avengers. But one of Hank Pym’s greatest failures came in recent years, when he allowed a bunch of the children he was responsible for at the Avengers Academy to be kidnapped and brutally murdered by Arcade (yes, Arcade). It’s unlikely that many Avengers Academy characters will ever see the light of day in plastic form, but now we can all commemorate this glorious era in Hank Pym’s life with the Marvel Legends Giant-Man figure available as part of the Ant-Man Legends Series!

Marvel Select Unmasked Ant-Man Revealed & Up for Order!

Disney Store Exclusive Unmasked Ant-Man Marvel Select Action Figure

Let’s face facts: there are not a ton of marketable characters (as far as merch goes) in next month’s Ant-Man movie. When the third-biggest name in the movie is “Ant-thony the Ant”, you know you’ve got a problem. And so, I’ve been waiting patiently for the first of the inevitable Unmasked Ant-Man figures to be revealed. I thought it would be Funko, but I was wrong: the exclusive Marvel Select Unmasked Ant-Man is now up for order!

Funko Glow-in-the-Dark Ant-Man POP Vinyl Released!

Glow in the Dark Ant Man Funko POP Vinyls Figure

We’re now under a month until the arrival of the Ant-Man movie in theaters, and that means that the modest onslaught of Ant-Man merch is now beginning to pour into stores! Toys R Us stores decided to break street date and release the Marvel Legends Ant-Man Series into stores earlier this month, and the Funko POP Vinyls Ant-Man and Yellowjacket figures have also begun to hit retail. And now, what may be the coolest of the Ant-Man Funko products is arriving as well–the Hot Topic exclusive Funko Glow-in-the-Dark Ant-Man POP Vinyl is available online and in some stores!

Marvel Legends Ultron Prime Build-A-Figure Review

Marvel Legends Ultron Prime Build-A-Figure Review

If there’s a prize to be won for the most bizarre movie-themed Marvel Legends set ever, the Hasbro Marvel Legends Ant-Man Series definitely wins it. The set includes one movie figure of the titular character, five comic book-based characters related to Ant-Man in varying degrees, and a Build-A-Figure from a different movie altogether. Due to his starring antagonistic role in Avengers Age of Ultron, the Ultron Prime Marvel Legends figure is one of the more anticipated BAFs of 2015. The 8″ Marvel Legends Ultron Prime Build-A-Figure has now arrived… but is it worth buying $120 in other figures to build him?

Marvel Legends Ant-Man Series Figures Released!

Ant-Man Marvel Legends Figures Released

What with the Marvel Legends Ant-Man Series having a hard street date of July 3rd 2015 (and Amazon shipping theirs July 1st), I really wasn’t expecting to see the figures hit stores two weeks early. But if there’s one chain that doesn’t mind breaking the rules and ignoring street dates, it’s Toys R Us–and many Toys R Us stores (including mine) have now begun stocking the Hasbro Ant-Man Legends figures early!

Minimates Marvel Zombies Age of Ultron Set Revealed!

Marvel Minimates Zombies Age of Ultron Box Set

No matter how much I fuss and insist I’ll never buy certain lines of Marvel items, the best companies usually find a way to drag me in. Kotobukiya did it with their Bishoujo Jubilee statue, Medicom baited my with their Retro Rocket Raccoon Sofubi, and now, Diamond Select has somehow managed to lure me in for zombies (yes, zombies)! Coming this fall: the Minimates Marvel Zombies Age of Ultron box set is now up for order!

Funko SDCC Blackout Ant-Man Hank Pym POP Vinyl!

SDCC Funko Blackout Ant-Man POP Vinyls Figure Hank Pym

While they were super-light on Marvel exclusives at SDCC 2014, Funko is clearly aiming to beat every other licensee in sheer quantity of exclusive Marvel toys at SDCC 2015! Thus far, they’ve announced the X-Force Deadpool Chimichanga Truck, a super-lame unmasked Baymax POP Vinyl, and a not-quite-”limited” Cosmic Powers Deadpool Hikari. And now? Funko has revealed a Marvel POP! that everyone is gonna want: it’s the Funko POP Vinyls Ant-Man Black Out figure, featuring the Hank Pym Ant-Man costume!

Hasbro SDCC 2015 Exclusive Ant-Man Figures Box Set!

SDCC 2015 Exclusive Ant-Man Hasbro Figures Set

With no substantial rumors swirling about and no leaked images of unknown Marvel Infinite Series 3 3/4″ figures surfacing from overseas, I’ve had my doubts for a while now that we would actually see any kind of exclusive SDCC 2015 Marvel Universe figures set from Hasbro. Well, I think we can effectively put the nail in the coffin of any chance of a SDCC 2015 Marvel Infinite Series set today, as Hasbro has revealed its final two Comic-Con exclusive Marvel items: six figures themed around Ant-Man! But hey… one of them is 3 3/4″. That’s pretty good, right…?
