Toy Fair: LEGO Spider-Man Homecoming ATM Heist Battle 76082!

LEGO Spider-Man Homecoming ATM Bank Heist Battle Set Box

My first stop at New York Toy Fair 2017 over the weekend was at a booth that never disappoints me: LEGO! I was worried we wouldn’t see anything new at the show since the first Marvel 2017 sets literally were released one day before Toy Fair began, but there were two new LEGO Marvel Summer 2017 sets on display, including the LEGO Spider-Man Homecoming ATM Heist Battle 76082!

Toy Fair 2017: Mattel Marvel Hot Wheels Cars Photos!

Toy Fair 2017 Hot Wheels Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 Cars

I attended the Mattel Toy Fair 2017 Collector’s Preview event Sunday afternoon to check out the new 6″ Halo figures for Gamer Toy News, and while I was at the event, I noticed some Marvel faces staring back at me from a line I only vaguely knew existed. Never one to turn my nose up at taking photos for Marvel Toy News, I stopped to take some photos of all the Marvel Hot Wheels cars on display at the 2017 Toy Fair…

Toy Fair 2017: Marvel Gallery Guardians of the Galaxy Statues!

Marvel Gallery Gamora Rocket Raccoon Statue

Ordinarily I don’t like to throw around arbitrary awards like “Best in the Show” for the various conventions and events where collectibles companies show off their latest products, but there was one company at New York Toy Fair 2017 that really “wow”-ed me like never before, and that was Diamond Select Toys. Not only did Diamond Select bring surprise additions to their long-running Marvel Select series, but they also debuted over a dozen new Marvel statues at the show and really cemented themselves as a force in the Marvel statue world. And among those new reveals were their first-ever MCU PVC statues: the Marvel Gallery Guardians of the Galaxy statues!

Toy Fair: Marvel Legends Guardians of the Galaxy Wave 2 2017!

Marvel Legends Mantis Build-A-Figure Close-Up

I’m not one to put any stock in leaked UPC lists, but when the Hasbro Marvel Legends Ex Nihilo figure was announced last night, that pretty much sealed the deal that the list of 2017 Marvel Legends Guardians of the Galaxy Wave 2 figures that had been circulating for weeks was the real deal and not just a rumor. And at the Hasbro Brand Toy Fair 2017 event today, we got official confirmation and also our first look at the rest of GOTG Marvel Legends Wave 2–including Nebula, Baby Groot and the Mantis Build-A-Figure!

There may be a crazy snowstorm raging in New York City this morning, but the weather is no match for the power of a Mezco Toys Pre-Toy Fair event! And this year, for the first time ever, Mezco Toyz had a special treat for collectors (and bums like me who weren’t willing to fight the snow to go into New York City this morning): they live-streamed coverage of the event online! Sure, the camera was a little wobbly and the figures were out of focus, but who cares, because we got our very first look at Mezco ONE:12 Collective Wolverine, Iron Man, Doctor Strange and Netflix Daredevil!

Hasbro 2017 Avengers 6″ Action Figures Released & Photos!

Hasbro Avengers Hulk 6 Inch Figure Basic 2017 Packaged

The news tends to flow freely and early when it comes to the Marvel Legends 6″ figures, but not all Hasbro Marvel lines–particularly the ones that aren’t collector-targeted–are quite so lucky. As such, occasionally new Hasbro Marvel toys will hit retail stores with nary a headline or preview to be found. Such is the case with a new line of 6″ Avengers figures that are popping up in stores right now, and which seem to be a sales hit thus far…

Prime 1 Studio Anti-Venom Statue Photos & Up for Order!

Sideshow EXCLUSIVE Anti Venom Statue Up for Order

My recent resolve to cut back on collecting 1/4 scale statues for spatial and monetary reasons melted away like butter confronted by the Human Torch last month when Prime-1 Studio announced their new line of 1/4 Marvel statues. P1 claimed all of my Sideshow Rewards (and a six month payment plan) from me for their Spider-Man 2099 statue last month, and now their second statue has arrived: the Prime-1 Studio Anti-Venom statue is now up for order!

Marvel Play Arts Kai Wolverine Figure Up for Order

Have you ever waited so long from when a figure was fully revealed to when it was available for order that when it actually did go up for sale, you thought you’d ordered it months ago…? Yeah–that’s how I feel about the Marvel Play Arts Kai Wolverine figure, which I could have swore I ordered at least 3 months ago. But I did not–at least, not then. That said–the Wolverine Play Arts Kai figure is now up for order–and this time, I really and truly have placed an order for him…
