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…

REVIEW: Hascon Marvel Legends X-Force Deadpool 6″ Figure!

Review Hascon Deadpool X-Force Marvel Legends 6" Figure

Although I wasn’t quite sure what to expect from HasCon when it was first announced, the inaugural event turned out to be one of the more unique and focused conventions that I’ve attended. A con where the unifying element is programming and displays of most of my favorite toy brands ever? Sign me up. But even more than the reveals at the show, I was excited to come home with the HasCon Exclusive Marvel Legends X-Force Deadpool. He’s selling for $50+ on the aftermarket and goes up for order on HTS a week from today–should you get one?

Marvel Legends Hela Figure Review & Photos Thor Ragnarok Series

Review Marvel Legends Hela Thor Ragnarok Movie Figure

Had Marvel Studios not selected Hela to be the primary antagonist of Thor Ragnarok, it’s very likely we’d have never seen her gracing local retail shelves in toy from any company. Ever. But they did, and now Hela is about to become among the most recognizable Marvel female characters in the world! As such, Hasbro is releasing a non-exclusive Marvel Legends Hela figure for the very first time in the Thor Ragnarok series! Is this MCU Hela all we could have hoped for?

Marvel Legends Gladiator Thor Review & Photos Ragnarok

6" Marvel Legends Gladiator Thor Chris Hemsworth Portrait

While the upcoming MCU movie this fall may be called “Thor Ragnarok”, the characters everyone is interested in talking about are Hela, Hulk, Loki and Valkyrie, with the titular character nowhere to be found. So it’s not a big surprise that, even in his own 6″ figure series, the Marvel Legends Gladiator Thor figure is readily available for MSRP and easy as pie to find online. But while he’s not exactly a hot commodity, it turns out that this 6″ Gladiator Thor Ragnarok figure is one of best figures in the wave…

REVIEW: Marvel Legends Gladiator Hulk Build-A-Figure

Close-Up of Marvel Legends Hulk Build-A-Figure Head Ragnarok

I was planning on posting my review of the Hasbro Marvel Legends Gladiator Hulk Build-A-Figure over the weekend, but I was foiled by my hosting company’s incompetence causing the site to be offline for half a week. Alas. But hey, better late than never, right? The Marvel Legends Gladiator Hulk BAF is selling for $60+ all by his lonesome on the aftermarket, and was one of the most-anticipated Build-A-Figures in quite some time (and perhaps ever)–but is this Hulk worth buying six other figures to build? Let’s find out…

Marvel Legends Ares Review & Photos Thor Ragnarok Series

Review Marvel Legends Ares Figure Thor Ragnarok

Sometimes figure re-releases end up being a disappointment, as the demand for a reissued figure ends up being less than the manufacturer thought and the toy ends up rotting off the pegs. This is not one of those times. Collectors have been calling out for a re-release of Marvel Legends Ares Build-A-Figure for years and paying $100+ for him in the meantime. Hasbro has heard fans’ cries and responded–with the new and improved Thor Ragnarok Marvel Legends Ares figure!

Thor Ragnarok Marvel Legends Loki 6″ Figure Review & Photos

Marvel Legends 2017 Loki Figure Wearing Crown Helmet

While today is the day of the much-anticipated sale of the leftovers of the SDCC 2017 Marvel Legends Battle for Asgard set on Hasbro Toy Shop, there’s plenty of Thor Legends figures released this summer that aren’t in that set that I still need to review. And one of those figures is the subject of today’s review: Marvel Legends Thor Ragnarok Loki! Despite being the first Hasbro 6″ Loki Marvel Legends figure ever made for mass retail, Loki is readily available online now for MSRP or less–is he worth picking up?

Marvel Legends Odinson Review SDCC 2017 Unworthy Thor

The Unworthy Thor Marvel Legends 6" Figure

This week has been as slow as Krakoa (the Island That Walks Like A Man) for Marvel toy news, so let’s dig in with another review from the SDCC 2017 Exclusive Marvel Legends Battle for Asgard set that’s going up for order next week on Hasbro Toy Shop! While the Thor-based set is filled almost entirely with new characters, it does contain one major variant of the titular character: currently selling for $40 and up online, it’s the modern Unworthy Thor himself, Marvel Legends Odinson!

REVIEW: Marvel Legends Bor Figure SDCC 2017 Exclusive 

Marvel Legends Bor Review

From Ghost to Satanna to Dreadknight, the annual SDCC Marvel Legends box sets have given us some pretty obscure characters for the first time in 6″ form over the years. But this year’s Battle for Asgard set takes the proverbial cake with a character who’s not exactly a household name–but who just might be one of the best Hasbro figures in one of these con exclusive sets ever! He’s already selling for 40-50 bucks on the aftermarket because he’s just so cool: Marvel Legends Bor!

REVIEW: SDCC Marvel Legends 12″ Daredevil Exclusive Figure

Close-Up of Marvel Legends Daredevil 12 Inch Figure

For the first time ever, Hasbro opted to go with a Marvel Legends 12″ figure instead of a 3.75″ set as their second SDCC 2017 Marvel Legends exclusive. And moreover, this limited exclusive isn’t some mere variant costume of a previously released character–it’s an all-new figure in by far the more gorgeous packaging ever for one of these sixth scale figures! The Marvel Legends 12″ Daredevil figure is selling online for slightly above his MSRP, and it’s easy to see why: this figure is excellent…

SDCC Exclusive ONE:12 Collective X-Men Deadpool Review

Mezco ONE 12 Collective X-Men Deadpool Review

I kicked off my SDCC 2017 Exclusives reviews yesterday with my Marvel Legends Ulik review, but Hasbro wasn’t the only company with exclusive Marvel 6″ figures at San Diego Comic-Con! Mezco brought along two exclusives of their own, and one of them is the first release in a trio of Deadpools! The sold out SDCC 2017 ONE:12 Collective X-Men Deadpool figure is selling for $140+ online now–but does this figure really warrant such a hefty investment…?

REVIEW: Marvel Legends Ego & Star-Lord Figures Pack

Marvel Legends GOTG Two-Pack Star-Lord and Ego

We interrupt this San Diego Comic Con 2017 coverage to bring you… a review of the final figure in the Marvel Legends Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 series! Hasbro’s GOTG 2 series is perhaps their finest lineup of movie 6″ figures ever, but there was one gaping, planet-sized hole that collectors desperately needed to complete that set. And now, he has arrived: the Marvel Legends Ego & Star-Lord two-pack is now shipping from EE! Is it worth buying this pack just for Ego? Read on…

Marvel Legends Rocket Raccoon & Groot Review

It’s a national holiday today in the United States, and that means no new product reveals or pre-orders–and the perfect time for a new figure review! To my embarrassment, there’s 1.5 members of the Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 team that I still haven’t taken a look at the new Marvel Legends for yet, so today’s a good day to fill that void! They’re finally steadily available online for below retail price–it’s Guardians of the Galaxy Marvel Legends Rocket Raccoon & Groot!

Revoltech Spider-Gwen Figure Released! In-Hand Review & Photos!

Revoltech Spider-Gwen Figure Review

The Kaiyodo Revoltech Marvel Comics series has turned a lot of heads in the past year by releasing some of the most fun figures of Deadpool, Spider-Man and Venom ever. But while those three figures are pretty great, they’re also characters who have had a “few” six inch figures released previously. But the fourth release–which will be swinging into the U.S. in just a few weeks–has only had one previous 6″ figure and has now been released in Asia. Let’s take a look at Marvel Ame-comic #4: Revoltech Spider-Gwen!

Spider-Man Homecoming Collector Corps Box Review & Spoilers!

Funko Spider-Man Homecoming Box Review Spoilers Collector Corps

The summer movie season is upon us, and thus, for the second Marvel Collector Corps box in a row we’ve got a new MCU movie theme! Not to be confused with last year’s comic-based Spider-Man box, this time out it’s the Funko Marvel Collector Corps Spider-Man Homecoming box! The mass retail line for this movie seemed pretty comprehensive, so I was really curious what was going to be inside this mystery box. Let’s take a peek…
