Kotobukiya Deadpool ARTFX+ Statue Revealed & Photos!

Kotobukiya Deadpool ARTFX+ Statue

It’s impossible to have a conversation about modern comic book characters that have exploded into ‘A’-List headliners for their respective companies without mentioning the Merc with a Mouth himself, Deadpool. Despite having only first appeared in 1991, the fairly recently-created Deadpool has become one of the most popular and recognizable characters in the entire comic book world. So it’s only natural that for their first non-Avengers Marvel Now! ARTFX+ statue, Kotobukiya would select one of Marvel’s most trendy characters–the Kotobukiya Deadpool ARTFX+ Statue has now been revealed!

SDCC 2014: Sideshow Marvel 1/6 Deadpool Wolverine Punisher!

SDCC 2014 Deadpool Sideshow Sixth Scale Figure

For years, sixth scale collectors who love Marvel comics themselves and not necessarily the movies have felt left out in the cold and abandoned. Every exquisite new Marvel Hot Toys sixth scale figure released has been a little bit of salt rubbed into the wound, as increasing number of Marvel movie-based 1/6 figures are released year after year. But sixth scale collectors who are Marvel comic book fans won’t have to feel unloved any longer–at San Diego Comic Con 2014, Sideshow Collectibles announced the impending line of Sideshow Marvel sixth scale figures based on the comics!

Hot Toys Iron Man Mark 3 Die-Cast Sixth Scale Figure

At this point it feels like there are about a million Hot Toys Iron Man sixth scale figures out there, but there’s no Iron Man Hot Toys figure that’s been more in-demand and clamored for by fans than a re-release of the Iron Man Mark III from the original 2008 “Iron Man” film. No matter how many more armors come down the pike, the Mark III Iron Man is considered by the majority to be the definitive Iron Man armor. And now collectors who missed out on the original are about to get another chance at a grail–the Hot Toys Iron Man Mark III Die-Cast figure will be up for order soon!

Funko Fabrikations Rocket Raccoon Figure Revealed!

Guardians of the Galaxy Funko Fabrikations Rocket Raccoon Figure

Last month I reviewed the awesome Marvel Funko Fabrikations Deadpool figure, the first Marvel character to be released as part of the Funko Fabrikations soft sculptures line of toys. I gave the Funko Deadpool Fabrikations figure a glowing review and said that Funko was “going to have a tough time topping ‘Pool”. I fully expected the second Funko Marvel Fabrikations figure to be a letdown after the exceptional Deadpool toy. Turns out, I actually like the second figure orders of magnitude more: the Funko Fabrikations Rocket Raccoon figure is now up for order!

Funko Marvel POP! Vinyls July 2014 Retirement List

Funko Marvel POP Vinyls Retired List Summer 2014

All good things must come to an end–and that includes the production runs of some figures in the extensive line of Funko POP! Vinyls figures. While Funko will often keep certain POP Vinyls figures in production for several years, with the crazy number of new characters they’re producing each year, certain figures need to retire–or go out of production–forever. And on this summer’s list of discontinued items, it’s been confirmed that several Marvel POP! Vinyls are going into retirement. Order the retiring Marvel POP Vinyls soon if you’re missing them, because retired Funko POP Vinyls can get very pricey on the aftermarket…

Well, here’s a teaser that I’d be willing to bet nobody saw coming. With San Diego Comic-Con 2014 set to begin in just another day, Hot Toys is still sending out preview images to whet collectors’ appetites. And while many of these SDCC 2014 previews have been fairly typical stuff like new Marvel Hot Toys figures and accessories, Hot Toys hit us with something really out of the blue today.

We won’t know the details until the con opens, but apparently a high-end Hot Toys SHIELD Helicarrier vehicle model is on the way!

Hot Toys Iron Man House Party Protocol Hall of Armor Revealed!

Hot Toys Iron Man 3 House Party Protocol Hall of Armor Diorama

I love Hot Toys; I love Iron Man 3. Ergo, I typically have no problem whatsoever with Hot Toys milking the Iron Man 3 license and sucking our wallets dry. That said, even I had to furrow my brow today–just a little bit–when Hot Toys announced an all-new Iron Man 3 Hot Toys Hall of Armor House Party Protocol Version diorama! You’ll be able to build your own Iron Man 3-style Hall of Armor, and the price is supposed to be affordable, but, well… the quality of this new House Party Protocol Hall of Armor definitely remains to be seen…

Many of us thought that this day would never come (and probably some hoped it never would), but for the first time ever, Hot Toys is producing a sixth scale figure of an anthropomorphic talking tree! Though a decade ago he was a virtual unknown, the classic character Groot has risen as a fan-favorite in recent years. And with the sure-to-be-blockbuster Guardians of the Galaxy movie hitting theaters in just two weeks, Hot Toys knew the time was right to strike–the MMS 253 Hot Toys Guardians of the Galaxy Groot figure is now up for order!

Hot Toys Python Iron Man Figure EXCLUSIVE Up for Order!

Python Iron Man Hot Toys Exclusive Toy Fair 2014 Figure

Last month Hot Toys released a teaser poster, giving us our first look at the Hot Toys 2014 Toy Fairs Exclusive figures–including (as expected) another Iron Man figure from Iron Man 3. I wrote about two-thirds of an article overnight discussing what I thought the exclusive was going to be and why based off of the teaser photo, but then Hot Toys had to go and spoil the whole thing by doing a full reveal the next morning. Get it while it lasts (which won’t be long)–the exclusive Iron Man 3 Hot Toys Python Iron Man Mark XX figure is now up for order!

But wait–there’s more! Hot Toys debuted the individual figures of MMS 252 Rocket Raccoon and MMS 253 Groot today, but they also made sure collectors would be aware that there was a special collectible bundle set of Rocket Raccoon & Groot on the way as well.

Hot Toys Rocket Raccoon Figures Photos & Up for Order!

Rocket Raccoon Hot Toys Sixth Scale Figure Holding Gun

Well, I’m just full of “wrong” lately. With under a week until the beginning of San Diego Comic Con 2014, I had truly figured that Hot Toys would hold off on debuting any new Movie Masterpiece Series figures–particularly the Hot Toys Guardians of the Galaxy figures–so that they’d be able to premiere them at SDCC 2014. Evidently, Hot Toys figured otherwise. But I’m glad they did, because the first Guardians of the Galaxy Hot Toys figure unveiled is the one I wanted to see most–the MMS 252 Hot Toys Rocket Raccoon figure is now up for order!
