Marvel Minimates Seres 59 All-New X-Men Figures Revealed!

Marvel Minimates Marvel Now X-Men Wave 59 Series Beast Angel Bobby Drake

I’ve had a tough time getting excited about the last couple series of Marvel Minimates figures revealed by Diamond Select Toys. It’s not because they’re not awesome–they are. But seeing most of the upcoming movie-based Marvel Minimates figures first-hand at New York Toy Fair 2014 in February spoiled me, and it’s hard to muster up enthusiasm when something you’ve already seen is unveiled.

Thankfully, today I got my chance to be genuinely exuberant about new Minimates for the first time in a couple months, as the previously-unnannounced Marvel Minimates Series 59 All-New X-Men wave is now up for pre-order!

Diamond Select Retro Spider-Man 8″ Figure Revealed & Photos

Diamond Select Marvel Retro Spider-Man Figure with Peter Parker Costume

We live in an age where it’s profitable for Funko to produce retro-style figures based on “The Goonies” and there’s actually demand for Gentle Giant to create a $2600 life-size Kenner Darth Vader figure, so it was only a matter of time until Marvel cashed-in on the nostalgia train. That time is now, and the lucky company looking to strike a nostalgic nerve is Diamond Select Toys! Coming this summer from Diamond Select–the Marvel Retro Spider-Man 8″ figure is now up for order!

Marvel Legends Black Widow Figure 2 Per Case Revision Confirmed

Marvel Legends Captain America The Winter Soldier Black Widow Figures 2014

This will sound totally wild, but I actually don’t own any of the Marvel Legends Captain America: The Winter Soldier movie figures, as I was determined not to buy any of the trio until I found a retail-priced Black Widow. While that goal has been a major frustration for thousands of other collectors, Hasbro has just made things a whole lot easier by confirming a new case revision that will allow online retailers to sell Winter Soldier Marvel Legends figures sets for a fair price and hopefully make Black Widow and company a cinch to find in stores…

Sideshow Jean Grey Premium Format Statue Revealed and Photos

I’m an X-Men guy at heart, and “my” iconic X-Men are the Jim Lee X-Men designs that made up the 90′s X-Men squads. It was the 1990′s X-Men cartoon series that really got me hooked on reading superhero comics, and as such, I’m a total mark for any new X-Men collectibles from that era.

So when Sideshow announced their next statue, I was thrilled as an X-Men collector but despairing for my wallet–the exclusive edition of the Sideshow Premium Format Jean Grey statue is now available for order!

Hasbro Amazing Spider-Man 2 Electro 4″ Figure Review & Photos

Amazing Spider-Man 2 Spider Strike Super Charged Electro 4" Figure

If you’re like me and try to collect at least one of every Marvel movie character in the Hasbro Marvel Universe 4″ figure scale, Hasbro has made deciding which Amazing Spider-Man 2 Electro figure to buy very, very simple: they only made one.

Funko Agent Coulson POP Vinyls Figure Review & Photos

Funko Agent Coulson POP! Vinyl Figure Review

The vastly under-appreciated Marvel’s Agents of SHIELD is my favorite non-animated TV series in many years, and I am absolutely starved for merch for the show. Despite tying in with the latest Marvel movies and having a high-profile primetime television spot, Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. toys are non-existent. So when the Funko Agent Coulson POP Vinyls figure went up for order on Entertainment Earth, I instantly knew he would be mine. Now that the Agents of SHIELD Agent Coulson Funko POP! Vinyl has arrived, I’m both overjoyed and a little disappointed…

Marvel Select Unmasked Captain America Revealed & Photos

Winter Soldier Marvel Select Captain America Unmasked Figure
