If you haven’t heard of the toy company Sentinel, don’t feel too ashamed. The Asian toy manufacturer Sentinel is best known stateside for its well-done Attack on Titan statues and small smattering of Transformers products, which are its most relevant properties for the western audience. But with the Marvel Cinematic Universe conquering the world, Sentinel is ready to descend and claim their piece of the Marvel collectibles pie, and they’re starting with Marvel’s current most marketable character: the Sentinel Armorize Iron Man figure is now up for order!Continue Reading →
Whenever there’s a slow Marvel toys news week, I know there’s one company I can count on almost without fail to give me something to talk about. And once again, Funko doesn’t disappoint me. Just one week after their LE 1000 Dangerous Spider-Man Hikari figure went up for order, another of the Funko Hikari Spider-Man vinyl figures has appeared for sale! For the moment you’ve got to order from Australia if you want this one, but I have a hunch that the Funko Hikari New Dimension Spider-Man vinyl figure will be making his American debut shortly…Continue Reading →
I was taking my sweet time getting around to talking about the updated Marvel Select Carnage figure that was shown off at the Diamond Select Toys booth at New York Comic Con 2014, confident that the new Carnage action figure wouldn’t go up for order for weeks yet so I could leisurely discuss him whenever I got around to it. Well, it turns out that I’m going to have to get around to talking about this magnificent maniac action figure right now, because the Marvel Select Carnage figure is now up for order!Continue Reading →
In a world where many toy companies are showing off figures six months to a year (sometimes more) before those toys go up for sale, I’m always taken by surprise when Funko will pull something out of their hat and officially announce a new toy a couple of days before it’s supposed to be released. Generally these tend to be upcoming Marvel Funko POP! Vinyls, but this time the new Marvel figure comes from a less popular line: Wacky Wobblers Bobble-Heads. But hey, who better to get folks talking about a line than a Marvel character who won’t shut up: the Funko Deadpool Wacky Wobblers figure has now been released!Continue Reading →
Most of the exhibitors at New York Comic Con 2014 put out all of their new Marvel collectibles on the first day of the show, but at least one company held something glorious back in reserve. Diamond Select Toys had a great booth and display case full of Marvel toys when NYCC 2014 opened, but the display case got even better later on in the show, when an all-new wave of Marvel Minimates figures appeared–the Marvel Minimates Wave 60 Classic X-Men and Brotherhood of Evil Mutants series!Continue Reading →
If she was a real woman, I would marry She-Hulk. Aside from being a brilliant lawyer and a virtuous superhero, She-Hulk is also quite the looker. So when I heard Kotobukiya was bringing the painted Bishoujo She-Hulk statue prototype to New York Comic 2014 to be shown off for the first time, I knew what my first stop at the show (after attempting to pick up my Funko exclusives) was going to be…Continue Reading →
It was just a week ago that Funko “won” New York Comic Con 2014 for me when they showed off an entire display case filled with previously unannounced Funko Hikari Groot Vinyl Figures at the Toy Tokyo booth. Not wanting to wait too long to cash in on the hype and popularity of Guardians of the Galaxy, Funko has fast-tracked their super-sized 11″ Groot figure, and he’s now expected to arrive this winter: the limited edition Groot Funko Hikari figure is now up for order!Continue Reading →
If there’s a real tragedy about this summer’s X-Men Days of Future Past movie (besides the absurd lack of merch released for the film), it’s that we never really got to see Future Wolverine in action in his stylish future costume.
But thanks to the considerate folks over at Hot Toys, soon we’ll all be able to make Wolverine fight to our hearts’ content in his future attire: the Hot Toys X-Men Days of Future Past Wolverine Sixth Scale Figure is now up for order!Continue Reading →
It’s been a very weird year for Hasbro Marvel Legends collectors. After kicking off the year in grandiose fashion with the Amazing Spider-Man Marvel Legends and Captain America Marvel Legends 2014 series, we got the X-Men Marvel Legends and Guardians of the Galaxy Marvel Legends in July. And, well… that’s it for the 2014 Marvel Legends figures. With one exception: announced at SDCC 2014, the Target Exclusive Marvel Legends three-pack of Marvel Legends Ms. Marvel, Captain America and Radioactive Man has now been released!Continue Reading →
I love a good action figure repaint as much as the next guy, especially when it’s a well-done and fan-requested version of a character that collectors have been asking for. In the case of statues that cost hundreds of dollars, I’m a bit more picky.
So while I’m not jumping for joy at the existence of a red-and-black J. Scott Campbell Spider-Man, I totally respect those excited for this repaint: the Sideshow Classic Spider-Man Comiquette is now up for order!Continue Reading →
Back at San Diego Comic Con 2014, Funko shocked Marvel vinyl collectors’ wallets when they unexpectedly debuted a half-dozen super-sized 8-10″ Funko Hikari Spider-Man figures at the show. But other than the Blaze Spider-Man Hikari going up for order, we haven’t heard a peep about these since summer. At least, not until today! The exclusive Funko Hikari Dangerous Spider-Man figure is now up for order, but the most “dangerous” thing about it may be the price…Continue Reading →
I’ve covered all of the totally new items that appeared at New York Comic Con 2014 now, but there were plenty more freshly updated items on display at the convention as well. One such item was the long in development Kotobukiya Rogue X-Men Danger Room Sessions Fine Arts Statue.
This statue has changed drastically from the first time we saw it years ago, and for the first time ever, we got to see Rogue painted at NYCC 2014! Was she worth the wait?Continue Reading →
Of all the companies debuting new Marvel toys and Collectibles at New York Comic Con 2014 over the weekend, no company brought more new Marvel figures to premiere at NYCC 2014 than Diamond Select Toys! Among the items revealed at the show where the third and fourth Diamond Select Toys Marvel Retro 8″ figures: Wolverine and Thor!Continue Reading →
