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…

Sideshow Spider-Man Premium Format Figure Orders Return!

Sideshow Premium Format Spider-Man Statue

Well, this is an unexpected development! Over the weekend, I discussed Gentle Giant’s new Collector’s Gallery Spider-Man statue as a viable substitute for those who either didn’t have space for Sideshow’s amazing Spider-Man PF statue, or for those who missed out and couldn’t pay the aftermarket prices for it. But it looks like the latter isn’t really a concern anymore (at least for now), because the Sideshow Spider-Man Premium Format Figure is back up for order!

Mezco ONE:12 Collective Old Man Logan Figure Up for Order!

Old Man Logan Mezco Figure Holding Up Claws

I had thought last week’s sleepy week of Marvel toy news was going to end in equally sleepy fashion, with nothing of much substance being announced or revealed from start to finish. But then Mezco Toyz had to go and drop a bombshell that really got Marvel collectors psyched up all weekend long! Following in the footsteps of last week’s ludicrously limited Classic Punisher, a ONE:12 Collective Old Man Logan figure is now up for order with free shipping!

Gentle Giant Spider-Man Collector’s Gallery Statue Up for Order!

Close-Up of Gentle Giant Spider-Man Collector's Gallery Statue

Last year, Sideshow Collectibles released their 1/4 Spider-Man Premium Format Figure, which many collectors are considering the best statue of the character ever. Of course, not everyone has an extra $500 (more like $700-$1200 on the aftermarket now) for the Sideshow Spider-Man. Thankfully, for those collectors who are looking for something a bit smaller–and a whole lot cheaper–Gentle Giant is swinging in with a uniquely cool Spidey of their own: the Collector’s Gallery Spider-Man statue is now up for order!

Hot Toys Civil War Winter Soldier Figure Review MMS 351

MMS351 Hot Toys Civil War Winter Soldier Review

It’s been an agonizing nearly year-long wait for Hot Toys Marvel figure collectors, but those 1/6 Hot Toys Captain America: Civil War movie figures we ordered last spring…? 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! The Hot Toys Civil War Winter Soldier is now shipping and still available for order–and my review of MMS351 will tell you why you should absolutely get one while you can…

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…

Toy Fair 2017: Kotobukiya Star-Lord ARTFX Statue Revealed!

Toy Fair 2017 Kotobukiya Star-Lord & Baby Groot ARTFX Statue

This week’s Marvel toy news drought is still going strong, so it’s time for me to pull from my remaining photos stash from last month’s New York Toy Fair 2017! Like most years, Kotobukiya had a 1/6th scale Marvel ARTFX statue on display at Toy Fair 2017. But unlike most years (okay, every year), this time it wasn’t Iron Man-related! Coming later this spring, it’s the Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 Kotobukiya Star-Lord ARTFX Statue!

Exclusive Marvel Select Star-Lord Figure Review & Photos!

Disney Store Exclusive Marvel Select Star-Lord Review

It’s a slow start to the week as far as fresh Marvel toy news to report goes, but that’s okay, because it means I get to dig into my humongous cache of figures needing reviews! Last week I talked about the Marvel Select Groot figure that surpassed all expectations, and this week let’s take a look at the Guardians of the Galaxy team leader. The exclusive Marvel Select Star-Lord figure is now in-stock online–should you order one? Read on…

NECA Daredevil & Doctor Strange 18″ Figures Up for Order!

NECA Doctor Strange Figure Close-Up Benedict Cumberbatch Head

I’m slowly but surely working my way through the last of the photos and new that I compiled while at New York Toy Fair 2017 last month, but there’s one company that definitely wasn’t going to wait for my slow behind to catch up: NECA! In fact, NECA wasn’t waiting for anybody’s news coverage to catch up, because they debuted their two newest Marvel quarter-scale figures at Toy Fair and then had them up for order the very next day: the 18″ NECA Daredevil & Movie Doctor Strange figures are now up for order! (And for the moment, you can use code “RSDEAL17” on EE to get either one for under 85 bucks shipped…)

Toy Fair 2017: Play Arts Kai Magneto & Doctor Strange Revealed!

2017 Toy Fair Magneto Play Arts Kai Close-Up

Every time I think that the Marvel Play Arts Kai Variant figure line is over and Square-Enix is done taking my money, they pull me back in! I really, truly thought that the Play Arts Kai Deadpool and Wolverine figures that went up for sale since last summer were the end of Marvel PAK, but it looks like the line has some life left in it! At New York Toy Fair 2017 last month, I was lucky enough to see the Marvel Play Arts Kai Magneto and Doctor Strange figures revealed in-person!

Revoltech Spider-Gwen Figure Up for Order & Official Photos!

Kaiyodo Revoltech Spider-Gwen Figure Poster

Kaiyodo has been producing Revoltech figures for many years now, and produced many movie Iron Man figures in that time. But last year they entered the Marvel Comics market with their ultra-fun Ame-Comic Revoltech Deadpool, Spider-Man and Venom figures. I figured it would be very hard for Kaiyodo to follow up the monstrous coolness of their Revoltech Venom figure, and perhaps with that in mind they’re taking a different approach with their next release. Sleek, charming and beautiful, the Revoltech Spider-Gwen is now up for order!

X-Men Marvel Legends Old Man Logan Figure Review & Photos

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…

It looks like it’s time to get out those wallets and shed tears made of hundred dollar bills once again, because after being revealed fully last month, the long-awaited limited EXCLUSIVE Version of the Prime 1 Studio Venom statue is now up for order! The Prime 1 Studio Marvel statues are not for those short on space or short on funds, that’s for darn sure–but even those lacking both may have to admit that this is one of the finest Venom statues in the land…

Exclusive Funko Dorbz Iron Fist & Iceman POP Vinyl Up for Order!

Funko Specialty Series Vinyls June 2017

Sharp-eyed readers may have noticed that last month, even though the Specialty Series Exclusive Funko Iceman POP Vinyls figure was announced, it never actually ended up being listed for sale by most online retailers. But patience has paid off for X-Men fans–the Funko POP Iceman figure is now up for order! And he’s brought along another exclusive friend, too: Dorbz Iron Fist!
