SH Figuarts Doctor Strange Iron Man Mark 1 & More Revealed!


2016 was a great year for SH Figuarts Marvel figure collectors, giving us our very first Bandai action figures of Tony Stark, Ultron, Hawkeye, Black Widow, Ant-Man and more–not to mention Marvel Figuarts figures going up for order in North America for the first time ever. And while Bandai Japan has yet to announce any prospective figures for Guardians of the Galaxy 2 or Thor Ragnarok, it looks like they’ll be keeping momentum going with some big firsts in 2017 as well: SH Figuarts Doctor Strange, Iron Man Mark I and more have now been revealed!

Kaiyodo Revoltech Venom Figure Revealed & Photos!


Kaiyodo has definitely gotten off to a hot start with their Amazing Yamaguchi Revoltech Marvel lineup, with both their super-fun Revoltech Deadpool and Spider-Man figures being quick sell outs overseas (though Amazon still has a few Deadpools left). And now the import-only 6″ figure line is about to get its first true villain–and he’s pretty monstrous, that’s for sure! At this week’s Miyazawa Model Exhibition Fall 2016 event, the long-teased Revoltech Venom figure finally made his debut!

Banpresto Creator X Creator Spider-Man Figure Revealed!


Banpresto has long been one of my favorite international toy manufacturers because of the huge variety of characters and sizes of low-priced anime figures that they produce.

Coming in Spring 2017, Banpresto goes Marvel with the Creator X Creator Spider-Man figure!

Loot Crate Exclusive Doctor Strange Q-Fig Figure Up for Order!


I quickly fell in love with Loot Crate over two years ago when they had their first major Marvel exclusive: the Glow-in-the-Dark Groot Funko POP Vinyls figure. Just as quickly, I fell out of love and cancelled my subscription when I realized how much junk I was accumulating from mystery boxes I didn’t even enjoy anymore. It’s been a long time, but LootCrate has pulled me back in this month with an awesome exclusive in this month’s box–the Exclusive Doctor Strange Q-Fig Figure is now up for order!

Comicave Studios Starboost Iron Man 6″ Figure Cancelled!


In the words of the great Mace Windu: “This party’s over.” At least, the hope of Comicave Studios releasing the full Iron Man 3 House Party Protocol series of 6″ figures is over, anyway. Shocking collectors, Comicave announced overnight that they are discontinuing development on their 1/12 scale die-cast Starboost Iron Man Mark 39 figure. For those out there collecting all lines of Iron Man armors, this is a pretty dark sign…

Bandai Manga Realization Samurai Captain America Figure!


Earlier today, I took notice of the fact that despite it having just hit the United States a couple weeks ago, the Bandai Tamashii Nations Samurai Spider-Man figure has already been heavily discounted online. But while early sales may be an indication that the line is destined to flop in North America, it doesn’t look to be slowing down anytime soon overseas!

Thus far I’ve been a little underwhelmed with the deals and rewards codes for this year’s Sideshow Collectibles Spooktacular event–but one area where Spooktacular is definitely delivering the goods is with new statues going up for order!

Comicave Studios Shades Iron Man Mark 23 6″ Figure Review 

Light-Up Feature on Iron Man Mark 23 Shades Die-Cast Figure

When Play Imaginative revealed their Die-Cast Iron Man 3 6″ figures, I got total googly eyes and wanted them all. The trouble is, when Comicave Studios took over and actually started releasing those figures last year, I was already deeply committed to buying all the Hot Toys Iron Man 3 armors. But Comicave finally put one over on Hot Toys by being the first company to bring a certain armor to market! The Comicave Shades Iron Man is available for under 100 bucks shipped online, and it is so, so worth it…

I was about to officially close the book on my New York Comic Con 2016 coverage when I realized there was one booth I had taken a bunch of photos at and not talked about yet.
