REVIEW: Marvel vs Capcom Infinite Statues & Infinity Gems 

IMG_2708-0

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…

HasCon: Marvel Legends Shuri! Paladin! King Cobra! Thanos!

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! I stopped by the Hasbro booth one last time tonight to snap photos of them all up-close…

I’m about to head out the door and head down to Providence for HasCon 2017, but I just had to finish writing up a quick article to post before leaving.

Mezco Toyz showed off a ton of Marvel ONE:12 Collective figures last year at SDCC 2016, and since then, every single one of them has gone up for order… sans one.

Iron Studios Wolverine & Weapon X Statues Up for Order!

Close-Up of Iron Studios Unmasked Wolverine Logan Head

Wolverine is dead, to begin with. There is no doubt whatever about that. Whether killed via being suffocated in liquid adamantium or impaled on a tree by a clone of his own younger self, Wolverine is dead. Even so, Logan remains among the most popular characters in the Marvel pantheon, with plenty of new collectibles coming our way in the coming months. Mezco and Hasbro both have classic Wolverine 6″ figures arriving this fall, and now Iron Studios is falling on the high-end front with two new statues: Iron Studios Wolverine and Weapon X statues are now up for order!

Marvel Premier Collection Thanos Statue Released & Photos!

Diamond Select Toys Marvel Premier Collection Thanos Statue Review

As we approach Thanos’s arrival next year as the supreme boss villain of the current Marvel Cinematic Universe in “Avengers: Infinity War”, pretty much every major high-end Marvel collectibles company has their own recent Thanos statue on the market.

Samurai Captain America Bandai Realization Figure Up for Order!

Close-Up of Marvel Manga Realization Captain America Samurai

Oftentimes when Bandai Japan shows off a figure and then goes silent on that figure for many months, it means that figure has been silently cancelled. I genuinely expected that to be the case with the bizarre Manga Realization Captain America that they first showed off last October, which debuted and then disappeared. But surprises abound–almost a year after first being shown, the Bandai Samurai Captain America figure is now up for order!

DST Marvel Gallery Thor Ragnarok Statue Up for Order!

Thor Ragnarok PVC Figure Diamond Select Toys Marvel Gallery

Last month, Diamond Select Toys took me off guard when they solicited Marvel Gallery PVC statues of Gladiator Hulk and Valkyrie from Thor Ragnarok, but not a new figure of the titular character himself. This month, DST has surprised me even more by opening pre-orders for a Marvel Gallery Thor Ragnarok statue of the Thunder God himself–but one that’s in his regular costume and not a companion piece to Gladiator Hulk at all…

Marvel Play Arts Kai War Machine Figure Photos & Order Info!

Marvel Play Arts Kai War Machine Figure

A couple years back, it looked like the Play Arts Kai Marvel Variant line might be on its last legs when they released a trio of straight-up “Special Color Version” repaints. Among these was an Iron Man Special Color Ver. figure that had been repainted into War Machine colors. At the time, that seemed likely to be the only Play Arts War Machine figure that would ever be produced. But there’s bucks to be made on revisiting the second most popular Iron Man character, and Square-Enix is set on making them–the Play Arts Kai War Machine figure is now up for order!

ONE:12 Collective Spider-Man Homecoming Up for Order!

Spider-Man Homecoming ONE 12 Collective Figure Mezco Toyz

Last week I was talking about Bandai Japan closing out their Spider-Man Homecoming movie entries with their SH Figuarts Homemade Suit Spidey and Iron Man figures, but not to be outdone, Mezco Toyz has a much-anticipated straggler of their own! Not content to just re-outfit the existing ONE:12 Collective Spider-Man, they’ve made some changes and slimmed Peter down–the ONE:12 Collective Spider-Man Homecoming figure is now up for order!
