Marvel Gallery X-23 Wolverine & Iron Fist Statues Up for Order!

DST X-23 Wolverine Marvel Gallery PVC Statue

When Diamond Select Toys premiered their gorgeous Marvel Select X-23 Wolverine statue at NYCC 2017 earlier this month, it immediately jumped into the “instant pre-order” territory for many collectors. The question wasn’t if, but when, those fans could place their orders. Well, it ends up that we didn’t have to wait very long for that answer at all—the Marvel Gallery Wolverine X-23 Statue is now up for order! Plus, she’s brought a friend along—the Defenders-completing Netflix Iron Fist Statue!

But every family has a black sheep, and the Revoltech Marvel series just may have found theirs.

NYCC 2017: Marvel Samurai Deadpool Hulk Wolverine Figures!

NYCC 2017 Bandai Ogre Hulk Manga Realization Figure

As anticipated, Bandai Tamashii Nations brought along their four previously-solicited Marvel Manga Realization Samurai figures to New York Comic Con 2017 (even the poor Samurai Spider-Man that’s 40% off online). What was not anticipated—at all—however, was that Bandai would be bringing “Approval Pending” designs of five more characters for the Manga Realization line: including Hulk, Wolverine, Deadpool and more!

NYCC 2017 Marvel Gallery X-23 Statue Wolverine

One of my favorite lines of the year has been the exploding Marvel Gallery PVC statue series, and so the Diamond Select Toys Booth was among my first stops at New York Comic Con 2017.

NYCC 2017: DST Marvel Premier Cable & Deadpool Statues!

Diamond Select Toys took me by surprise at New York Toy Fair 2017 by being my favorite exhibitor at the show for their huge variety of affordably-priced Marvel statues. I wasn’t sure that at NYCC 2017 they could win my “Best in the Show” award again (as far as Marvel statues go), but that was before I got to their booth and saw their sensational new Marvel Premier Collection Cable Statue in person, the complement piece to their Deadpool statue that went up for order last month…

NYCC 2017: SH Figuarts Gladiator Hulk & Thor Figures!

Traditionally, Bandai S.H. Figuarts Marvel figures haven’t had a presence at New York Comic Con (since prior to last year, Bandai didn’t have a license to sell Marvel figures in the United States at all). But things are different now from how they’ve been historically, and Bluefin Distibution brought along all of the upcoming U.S. Marvel Figuarts that are on the way—including the world premiere of Thor Ragnarok Figuarts Gladiator Hulk and Thor!

ONE:12 Collective Defenders Doctor Strange Exclusive Figure!

Previews Exclusive Doctor Strange ONE 12 Collective Modern Variant Figure

From Captain America to the Red Skull, every single character released as part of the Marvel Comics ONE:12 Collective Figures series has come in at least two different flavors. And so, even though he’s a character who really only has one iconic look, I don’t think there’s anyone who wasn’t expecting to see a variant of the Master of Mysticism appear. And though we’ve had to wait 8 months for it, it’s finally been announced: the Exclusive Defenders Doctor Strange ONE:12 Collective Figure is now up for order!

NYCC 2017 Exclusive Snow Strike Black Widow Figure

With New York Comic Con 2017 just two days away (I’m leaving for NYC tomorrow so that I can start coverage bright and early Thursday morning, by the way), you might have thought that we were done seeing major companies announce exclusives for the show (I sure did).

NYCC 2017 Toys R Us Exclusives Marvel

I’ve been to New York Comic Con every year since, well… ever… and I can’t recall Toys R Us ever having a booth at the show—much less exclusives.

REVIEW: Marvel vs Capcom Infinite Statues & Infinity Gems 

Comic books and fighting games are two of the seven great loves of my life, so when Capcom started making arcade games featuring the X-Men and various Marvel Superheroes a few decades back, I was hooked for life. And when a $200 Marvel vs Capcom Infinite Collector’s Edition went up for sale earlier this year with four statues and a set of Infinity Gems included, well… cue that “Take my Money” meme. The big day came this week and the box set arrived… but not everything is quite as advertised…

Marvel Premier Collection Deadpool Statue Up for Order!

Diamond Select Toys has been spoiling us rotten opening up pre-orders for a multitude of new Marvel statues each month during the summer, but we’re going to have to make do with just a singular new statue in the latest round of solicitations. Luckily, this is one that I think is going to be on a lot of collector’s wish lists, even if it’s not exactly an under-merchandised character: the resin 12″ DST Marvel Premier Collection Deadpool statue is now up for order!

Of all the statues that made their grand debuts at San Diego Comic Con 2017, the one that caught me most by surprise–in a very good way–was Iron Studios’ newest addition to their Marvel Comics Battle Diorama series.

Marvel Legends Thanos with Infinity Gauntlet Walmart Exclusive

I posted earlier today about the megaton lineup of the first half of the 2018 X-Men Marvel Legends Apocalypse series, as well as the new Spider-Woman, but that’s far from all Hasbro had up their sleeves at the HasCon panel tonight! In addition, we saw the debuts of Marvel Legends Shuri, King Cobra, Invincible Iron Man, Thanos with Infinity Gauntlet, Paladin and more!
