Need more proof that we’re living in a true Golden Age for Marvel toys and collectibles? How about the fact that an alternate universe Spider-Man can have his first appearance, take part in a couple stories and then an amazing super-articulated action figure in our hands in just over two years? Though he’s still slightly obscure and available for below MSRP online, the Hasbro Marvel Legends Spider-UK turns out to be a surprisingly awesome action figure…

I sense pre-orders coming our way someday soon, but until then, we can all drool over this year’s 2017 Marvel Legends X-Men Series 6″ figures with Warlock Build-A-Figure!

Marvel Legends Groot Evolution Figure Review & Photos

Marvel Legends Groot Evolution Figures Review Photos

I’m about as “all-in” as it gets when it comes to Guardians of the Galaxy toys and collectibles, so when an early shipment of the Toys R Us Exclusive Marvel Legends Groot Evolution figure set hit online last week, it was the very definition of “instant purchase”. Three days later, the Guardians of the Galaxy Marvel Legends 2017 Groot Evolution Pack has arrived! And I am very, very pleased with the most Groot-iful figure set ever…

Marvel Legends The Raft Spider-Man vs. Black Costume Spider-Man Comparison

Now that all the excitement and hysteria brought about by the mixture of the Marvel Legends Guardians of the Galaxy figures hitting Amazon and the first wave of 2017 Marvel Legends exclusives being leaked is over, I can get back to catching up on reviews. And today’s spotlight falls on a figure that’s still quite difficult to find in stores despite being double-packed in cases: the 2017 Marvel Legends Symbiote Spider-Man (Black Costume) 6″ figure!

UPDATE 1/7/2016: I talked about the new Marvel Legends Black Panther last month when the first photo leaked (and a bunch of you tried to insist I was being fooled and he was a custom–ha), but an online auction of the in-hand figure yesterday revealed new images of the front and back of the box for Black Panther, plus the all-important detail that this figure is going to be a Walmart Exclusive (fun!).

Today must just be the day for new exclusive Marvel Legends figures leaking out, because hot on the heels of the Toys R Us exclusive Groot Evolution Pack being spotted for the first time, the brand new Hasbro 6″ Marvel Legends Invisible Woman figure (and HERBIE) have appeared online as well!

To the dismay of everyone, the street/release date on the Marvel Legends Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 figures has been pushed back until March 2017, with the new target month reflected on virtually every retailer website. But while we’re waiting another two months to get our hands on Angela (that sounded dirty) and Yondu and Darkhawk, it looks like there’s one new GOTG figure that we may be seeing sooner: a Toys R Us Exclusive Marvel Legends Groot Evolution Pack has surfaced online–with the first Marvel Legends Baby Groot figure!

Marvel Legends Ms. Marvel Kamala Khan Figure Review 2017

Ms. Marvel Kamala Khan Marvel Legends Embiggened Right Arm

Of all the characters in the first wave of Spider-Man Marvel Legends 2017 figures, none of them are getting anywhere near the amount of hype as the new inheritor of the name Ms. Marvel–Kamala Khan! The Pakistani-American superheroine has had plenty of buzz around her since she got her powers two years ago, and the time has come for her first articulated action figure! But while Marvel Legends Kamala Khan selling for a mint right now online, is she also a risky purchase…?

2017 Marvel Legends Sandman Build-A-Figure Review

Hasbro Sandman Legends Figure Killing Spider-Man

It doesn’t happen every year, but this winter we’ve been lucky enough for some stores to start receiving the first wave of 2017 Marvel Legends figures before the new year even rolls around! And since I’ve been so blessed as to track down every figure in the wave early, I’d be remiss if I didn’t devote some time to a review of the Build-A-Figure before the holidays. And so, though he isn’t the first Marvel Legends Sandman figure ever, the Sandman Build-A-Figure is definitely the best…

Man, Hasbro is really spoiling us Marvel Legends collectors rotten today, that’s for sure!

Way back in July at San Diego Comic-Con 2016, Hasbro gave us an early first look at the comic-based figures that would make up half of the 6″ Marvel Legends 2017 Guardians of the Galaxy Wave 1 series: Major Victory, Darkhawk, Angela, Nova and the Titus Build-A-Figure. We’ve been wondering ever since what Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 movie characters would be completing the lineup, and now we know: 2017 Marvel Legends Yondu, Drax and Star-Lord have now been revealed!

2017 Marvel Legends Green Goblin Review & Photos

Marvel Legends 2017 Green Goblin 6" Figure Review

When Hasbro tooled up new parts for the Hobgoblin this summer, the writing was on the wall that a new 6″ Green Goblin would be flying in before too long. And while nobody could have foreseen Dreadknight using some of the newly-developed tooling himself first, Spider-Man’s greatest villain has now arrived! The 2017 Marvel Legends Green Goblin figure is now hitting online and in some stores, and this new iteration is a definite home run for Hasbro…

Marvel Legends Shocker Review 2017 Sandman Series

Marvel Legends Shocker Review

I think it’s a pretty good testament to how wildly successfully the Marvel Legends 6″ line has been the past few years–and how much Hasbro has been spoiling us–that the Shocker has actually risen to the top of many fans’ wish lists. He’s arriving a bit later than the summer date we all expected, but the Marvel Legends Shocker figure has been selling out online constantly for almost two weeks now! But I’m just not as excited about this figure as I wanted to be…
