SDCC 2017 Exclusive ONE:12 Collective X-Men Deadpool!

San Diego Comic Con 2017 Exclusive Mezco ONE 12 Collective X-Men Deadpool

Mezco Toyz has been spacing out the announcements of their San Diego Comic Con 2017 exclusives over the past several weeks, and while I was love Thundercats as much as the next guy (okay, probably more than most next guys), it’s the SDCC ONE:12 Collective Marvel exclusive I’ve been really waiting to see. I never had much doubt that it was going to be a Deadpool variant, but at least it turns out to be my favorite one: the SDCC 2017 Exclusive ONE:12 Collective X-Men Deadpool has now been revealed!

Marvel Legends Deadpool 12″ Figure on Clearance at Target!

50% Off 12" Marvel Legends Deadpool Action Figure at Target

While I thought that the Hasbro Marvel Legends 12″ Spider-Man, Captain America and Iron Man figures last year were all excellent toys at a solid price, their retail sales didn’t exactly set the world on fire. I had high hopes that this year’s 12″ Deadpool Marvel Legends figure would be a huge hit in stores and revitalize the line’s health, but it doesn’t look like that’s the case–the Deadpool 12″ figure is already appearing on clearance at Target stores…

Spider-Man Homecoming Marvel Legends Vulture Review

Marvel Legends Spider-Man Homecoming Vulture Build-A-Figure Review

When Hasbro officially announced that the Marvel Legends Spider-Man Homecoming Build-A-Figure built by buying the whole wave wasn’t going to be a figure at all–but rather the movie Vulture’s Flight Pack wings–tons of collectors called foul (no, not “fowl”–vultures aren’t fowl). After all, the series “Build-A-Figure” being an accessory was unheard of in Marvel Legends. But as soon as I saw the Marvel Legends Vulture at the 2017 Toy Fair, I knew Hasbro had done right by us: this Vulture Build-A-Figure is spectacular

The King of Exclusives has been on a roll ever since the short respite last month, and now Funko has let the cat out of the bag on their Marvel SDCC 2017 Exclusive POP Vinyls exclusives!

Marvel Collector’s Gallery Punisher & Animated Thor Statues!

Close-Up of Marvel Collector Gallery The Punisher 10 Inch Statue

One of the biggest surprises for me at Star Wars Celebration Orlando this April was that Gentle Giant Ltd. actually brought a handful of never-before-seen Marvel statue prototypes to show off at their booth at the event, including Punisher and Star-Lord statues and a new Skottie Young Thor Marvel Babies statue. I’ve been mightily looking forward to the pre-order for at least one of those pieces ever since, and the time has come: the Marvel Collector’s Gallery Punisher and Animated Thor statues are now up for order!

Hot Toys Homecoming Spider-Man Deluxe 1/6 Figure Up for Order!

Hot Toys Homecoming Spider-Man Deluxe Figure Wearing Hoodie and Blazer

Ever since we found out that Spider-Man would officially be in the Captain America: Civil War movie close to two years ago, fans have been drooling over the prospect of a new 12″ Hot Toys MCU Spider-Man in his movie costume. We didn’t get a Civil War version for licensing reasons, and the first Homecoming Spidey turned out to be the neat-o–but definitely not classic–Homemade Suit Version. But finally, the one fans really want is on the way: the Hot Toys Spider-Man Homecoming Deluxe figure is now up for order!

Marvel Legends Spider-Man Homecoming Web Wings Review

Spider-Man Homecoming Web Wings Spider-Man Review & Photos

They say that there’s a first time for everything, and with that in mind, I think we may have our first-ever sole heavy-packed Marvel Legends 6″ figure being the hardest-to-find figure from a series! When the Marvel Legends Spider-Man Homecoming series leaked out in April, only the two-per-case Web Wings Spider-Man was nowhere to be found, leaving many Vulture Build-A-Figures incomplete. But Web Wings Spidey has finally flown in and is available online and in some Walmart stores already! Was he worth the wait?

Marvel Legends Gamora Figure Review (GOTG Mantis Series)

Marvel Legends 2017 Gamora Review and Photos

When the first Guardians of the Galaxy Marvel Legends movie figures came out in 2014, I was just happy to finally own a 6″ Gamora action figure, so I was able to look past its faults easily enough. Three years later, my tastes have matured and I was ready for Hasbro to blow me away with their new GOTG Vol. 2 Gamora Marvel Legends figure. It looks like other collectors were ready for a new version as well, as the 2017 Marvel Legends Gamora is selling for $30+ online right now. At a glance, she’s one of the best-looking MCU figures ever–but does she hold up overall?

Hasbro Spider-Man Homecoming Shocker Figure Revealed!

Spider-Man Homecoming Shocker Six Inch Figure Hasbro

If there’s one thing about the various lines of Spider-Man Homecoming toys that I’ve seen lamented, it’s the sheer lack of Shocker movie figures. Sure, The Shocker is getting a movie LEGO Minifigure and a Minimate, but folks really wanted a Hasbro 6″ movie Shocker. But wait–! Just when hope seemed lost a 6″ Spider-Man Homecoming Shocker figure has appeared! Of course, he’s not quite the Marvel Legends version many collectors may have been hoping for…

SDCC 2017 Exclusive Dark Phoenix & Unmasked Ironheart Statues!

SDCC Exclusive DST Dark Phoenix PVC Figure

Last month, Diamond Select Toys was one of the first companies out of the gate to officially announce their San Diego Comic Con 2017 exclusives, including the Marvel Gallery Superior Iron Man and X-Men Deadpool statues. It looked like that was going to be it for DST Marvel exclusives for the show, but looks can be deceiving: the SDCC 2017 Exclusive Dark Phoenix & Unmasked Ironheart Marvel Gallery statues have now been revealed!

Toys R Us Exclusive Marvel Legends Guardians of the Galaxy Set!

Toys R Us Exclusive Marvel Legends Guardians of the Galaxy Figures 5-Pack

Remember that one crazy time (okay, it was last week) when the Marvel Legends Dark Phoenix & Cyclops figures two-pack arrived in Australia before anywhere else in the world…? Well, it’s happening again–this time, with a full team five-pack! But while the Toys R Us Exclusive Marvel Legends Guardians of the Galaxy box set that’s arrived on ebay may be bigger and more expensive than the Dark Phoenix pack, it’s not necessarily better, that’s for sure…

Funko Marvel POP Vinyls Exclusive Blue Venom X-23 Superior Spider-Man

The King of Marvel Exclusives has been pretty quiet ever since they announced their Guardians of the Galaxy 2 and Spider-Man Homecoming POP Vinyls exclusives. But fear not, Funko collectors–we won’t have to live in a world without fresh comic-based Marvel Funko POP Vinyls Exclusives for much longer! Coming our way this summer: Funko X-23 Wolverine, Blue Venom and Superior Spider-Man POP Vinyls! And don’t worry, Dorbz fans–Funko has new exclusives lined up for you too…

Play Arts Kai X-Force Deadpool Figure Revealed & Photos!

Special Color Ver Play Arts Deadpool X-Force Figure

If there’s one thing that action figure companies absolutely love, it’s figures that can be easily repainted into other versions or characters. And while Square-Enix uses 100% unique tooling for every individual character they make, even the Play Arts Kai line isn’t immune to “Special Color Versions”! And so, now that the PAK Deadpool is shipping in the United States this summer, we should have all guessed that this obligatory Play Arts Kai X-Force Deadpool figure was in the works…

Marvel Legends Ex Nihilo Figure Review GOTG Mantis Series

Ex Nihilo Marvel Legends Figure Review GOTG Wave 2

It’s been a pretty uneventful holiday weekend for Marvel Toy News (so much so that the most exciting thing I’ve posted is this photo of a Spider-Man Pizza Hut box on social media). But now, let’s celebrate Memorial Day with a review of a fallen hero (of a sort) getting his first-ever action figure from Hasbro this spring: the 6″ Guardians of the Galaxy Marvel Legends Ex Nihilo figure from the Mantis Series! He may have never appeared in a GOTG comic book, but he’s a nice addition to the line nonetheless…
