2017 Marvel Legends Drax Review & Photos GOTG Vol. 2 Hasbro

2017 Marvel Legends Drax Movie Figure Review

I posted my reviews of the Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 Marvel Legends Yondu and Star-Lord figures earlier this month, and now it’s time to complete the set with the last movie figure in Wave 1! Drax is arguably the least popular member of the team, and you can get this new Marvel Legends Drax figure for about $17 online right now–but is it worth upgrading if you already own the 6″ Drax figure from the first movie?

Close-Up of Marvel Legends Star-Lord Figure Chris Pratt Head

Earlier this week I talked about the high-end life-size eFX Star-Lord Helmet prop replica that very few collectors can (or will) be buying. So today, let’s take a look at a Guardians of the Galaxy movie Star-Lord toy that pretty much all of us can afford–and many of us already have! Hasbro’s 2017 Marvel Legends Star-Lord figure is now available online for below the retail price, and it’s downright perfect–as long as you’re looking at it from the right angle…

2017 Marvel Legends Colossus Review X-Men Warlock Series

Marvel Legends X-Men Warlock Series Colossus Review

Superhero costumes being continuously redesigned is a fact of life in the comic book world that readers have long been accustomed to. But some new interpretations really throw you for a loop nonetheless, as was the case with me and and lumberjack-looking, bearded Colossus. Over the course of a year the look finally grew on me–just in time for the beard to be shaved off in the latest comics! But hey, at least we’ll always have this new Hasbro X-Men Marvel Legends Colossus figure, right?

2017 X-Men Marvel Legends Cyclops Jim Lee Figure Review

Close-Up of Jim Lee Cyclops Marvel Legends Head Warlock Series

If there was one figure that I was all but certain I’d be awarding an ‘A+’ to as soon as it was revealed at San Diego Comic-Con 2016 last year, it’s the 2017 Marvel Legends Jim Lee Cyclops 6″ figure. And predictably, the one-per-case Cyclops figure is selling for crazy amounts online after arriving in limited quantities last month. But is the Cyclops Marvel Legends X-Men Warlock Series figure really all it’s cracked up to be? Well… not exactly…

At long last, most of them are finally starting to arrive! And for those who missed out on the first version and didn’t want to pay aftermarket prices for him, there’s no figure from the series more anticipated than Bucky!

Marvel Legends Yondu Review (Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2)

Review Marvel Legends Yondu Figure

I started my reviews of the new Guardians of the Galaxy Marvel Legends series several weeks back, but got sidetracked by the news juggernaut that was New York Toy Fair 2017. But now it’s back to reviews! And this time, I’ll be covering a movie character who probably deserved to have a figure for the first movie–but didn’t. Luckily, Hasbro has come a long way in three years. So even though he’s already down to 16 bucks shipped online, the first-ever 6″ Marvel Legends Yondu figure we’re getting this year is way better than the one we would have gotten in 2014…

Marvel Legends Old Man Logan Review 2017 X-Men

If there’s one character I never expected to see make a comeback in the modern universe, it’s the alternate future version of Wolverine: Old Man Logan. But come back Logan has, and his place in the pantheon of beloved Marvel characters is now complete as far as Hasbro is concerned, because Old Man Logan has earned himself his first-ever 6″ Marvel Legends figure! This whole wave isn’t expected to hit most retailers for another month, but Target got an early shipment and you can also snag Marvel Legends Old Man Logan for about 25 bucks on ebay. If you can get one early, I recommend it–this is one of my favorite Wolverine figures ever…

Exclusive Marvel Select Groot Figure Review & Photos

Close-Up of Marvel Select Groot Toy Head

Because I basically eat, drink and sleep toys, I’m immersed in collecting culture pretty much 24/7. And as such, sometimes other collectors who I think are being overly demanding can grate on my nerves just a little bit. This was the case when the exclusive Marvel Select Groot figure went up for order online earlier this month and a number of folks complained he was a ripoff because he didn’t come with a free Rocket Raccoon figure. And so, now that my Groot Marvel Select figure has arrived, let’s take a look and see whether this figure is a good value or not…

Retro Armor Sneaky Iron Man Hot Toys Review MMS 396

Given that Tony Stark has 42 different Iron Man armor permutations on-screen just in the Iron Man 3 movie, you might think Hot Toys would never have to release an armor not seen in the movie again.

The limited Hot Toys Sneaky Iron Man Retro Version figure is available for order exclusively through Sideshow Collectibles–and trust me, die-hard Iron Man fans are gonna want to order this before it sells out…

I’m about as “all-in” as it gets when it comes to Guardians of the Galaxy toys and collectibles, so when an early shipment of the Toys R Us Exclusive Marvel Legends Groot Evolution figure set hit online last week, it was the very definition of “instant purchase”. Three days later, the Guardians of the Galaxy Marvel Legends 2017 Groot Evolution Pack has arrived! And I am very, very pleased with the most Groot-iful figure set ever…
