Toy Fair: Marvel Legends 2017 4″ Movie Two-Packs! Shocker!

Marvel Legends 2017 2-Packs Shocker and Spider-Man

Yesterday was all about two of the most high-end figures of The Punisher ever (the Hot Toys Netflix Punisher and the Mezco ONE:12 Collective Classic Punisher) going up for sale, but today let’s look at some figures that are smaller, available sooner, and a whole lot cheaper! The 4″ Marvel Legends Shocker & Spider-Man two-pack debuted at New York Toy Fair 2017 last month, and now the Wave 1 GOTG and Doctor Strange Movie Two-Packs are in-stock and up for order!

Hot Toys Punisher Sixth Scale Figure Up for Order

Get those wallets ready, Netflix Daredevil fans! After announcing that Netflix Punisher was on the way last summer and then teasing him for the better part of a year, Hot Toys finally made the full reveal of their Punisher sixth scale figure overnight. And while the Punisher isn’t “my guy”, I gotta say–the Jon Bernthal portrait just may be the best likeness Hot Toys has ever done! The Hot Toys Punisher Netflix figure is now up for order!

Mezco ONE:12 Collective Classic Punisher SOLD OUT!

Mezco ONE 12 Collective Classic Variant Punisher Figure

Remember that Classic Punisher ONE:12 Collective figure that Mezco Toyz has been showing off to tens of thousands of collectors at various shows and events for over a year now? The iconic comic-based version of the character…? Yeah, well–the good news is, he finally went up for sale unexpectedly today. The bad news is, he was a limited exclusive variant limited to 400 pieces now selling for $250 on the aftermarket just hours after going up for sale…

2014 Marvel Legends Guardians of the Galaxy Series Reissued?

Guardians of the Galaxy Rocket Raccoon Marvel Legends Figure Reissue

Strange store reports started cropping up over the course of the past week of collectors finding the original 2014 Marvel Legends Guardians of the Galaxy Series figures at their local Target stores. Three year old Hasbro figures suddenly hitting stores again nationwide is a pretty bizarre turn of events, so I went to investigate today–and can confirm that fresh cases of the GOTG Marvel Legends 2014 series are indeed being stocked once again…

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…

Toy Fair 2017: DST Doctor Strange & Civil War Movie Statues!

Diamond Select Toys Doctor Strange Movie Statue Toy Fair 2017

I definitely surprised a lot of folks–including myself–when I awarded my “Best of New York Toy Fair 2017” award to Diamond Select Toys. While I’ve always loved DST’s Marvel Select and Minimates figures, what really locked the award for them was neither of those long-running lines, though–it was their unexpectedly amazing showing of Marvel statues! And three statues that mystified me perhaps more than anything else at the 2017 Toy Fair were Diamond’s resin Marvel Milestones Doctor Strange and Civil War movie statues…

Spider-Man Homecoming Marvel Legends Packaged Photos!

Marvel Legends Homecoming Spider-Man Figure Packaging Revealed

I so badly want to get back to posting reviews (I have a floor full of new figures waiting for review like you would not believe) and discussing some of the smaller companies’ new toys that I saw at New York Toy Fair 2017–but it looks like those things are going to have to wait a bit more, because the Hasbro Marvel Legends train isn’t slowing down at all! We only saw them revealed last weekend, but now Spider-Man Homecoming Marvel Legends packaged photos have already turned up!

Toy Fair 2017: Marvel Legends 12″ Hulk Thor & Deadpool Photos!

12" Marvel Legends Deadpool Figure with Chimichanga Burrito

Here I thought that I had discussed all of the new Marvel Legends shown in my New York Toy Fair 2017 coverage last weekend, when I flipped through my photos today and realized I never talked about a trio that didn’t debut at the show. Not only did Hasbro bring the soon-to-be-shipping Marvel Legends 12″ Deadpool to show off at Toy Fair, but they also had the recently-revealed 12″ Thor and 14.5″ Hulk there. And I have to say, both these figures look a lot better than I expected in person…

2017 Marvel Legends 4″ Wave 1 Released! Moon Knight! X-23!

Marvel Legends X-23 Wolverine Figure Released

While I was at Target this morning hysterically tossing the new X-Men Marvel Legends figures into my basket, I caught a glimpse of something out of the corner of my eye that it took my brain a moment to comprehend. Though I hadn’t heard any reports about them hitting stores yet, the Marvel Universe scale 3.75″ Marvel Legends 2017 Wave 1 figures were all in-stock and in front of my face, including X-23 Wolverine, Moon Knight, Maestro and more!

Marvel Legends X-Men 2017 Warlock Series Figures Released Early!

Marvel Legends Cyclops 2017 Figure Released

While the staff and photographers of the biggest Marvel toy news sites across the world (and me) were all congregating in New York City last weekend for New York Toy Fair 2017, a pretty crazy thing happened–and I mean crazy. Even though Hasbro still hasn’t allowed online retailers to even begin taking orders for this year’s X-Men Marvel Legends 2017 Warlock Series figures, the figures physically appeared (and disappeared) on store shelves at Target stores across the country–and shortly thereafter began flooding ebay at inflated prices…

Funko Marvel Superhero Showdowns Box Unboxing Review & Photos!

Funko Collector Corps Superhero Showdowns Box Review Unboxing

Tragedy stuck last week when the February 2017 Funko Marvel Collector Corps box I ordered arrived at my doorstep less than a day after I left for New York Toy Fair 2017. Oh, the humanity!! …Okay, that’s probably a bit of hyperbole, but it was a disappointment to me to not be home to do an unboxing myself for the first time ever when a new Funko subscription box arrived. But as luck would have it, I have a wife, and I put her to work taking unboxing photos last week, which I’m now using for my Funko Superhero Showdowns review, unboxing and full spoilers…

Sideshow Exclusive Ghost Rider Sixth Scale Figure Up for Order!

Sideshow Ghost Rider Sixth Scale Figure

Apparently I must have missed some memos this last week while I’ve been drowning in the tsunami of New York Toy Fair 2017 news and photos, because Sideshow Collectibles was able to launch a figure this afternoon that I had no idea was ready to be solicited! Just one week after their first Marvel sixth scale figure since 2015 went up for order, there is another: the Sideshow Exclusive Ghost Rider sixth scale figure is now up for order!

Sideshow Lady Thor Premium Format Statue Up for Order!

Close-Up of Sideshow Thor Jane Foster Premium Format Figure Statue

For the past year-plus, Sideshow Collectibles has been hitting female statues out of the ballpark one after the next. And though she’s not necessarily a favorite of longtime classic comic book readers, the high-profile headliner superheroine Sideshow has going up for sale today looks like another home run to me: the Sideshow Collectibles Lady Thor Premium Format Figure statue is now up for order!

Toy Fair 2017: Kotobukiya Spider-Man 2099 ARTFX+ Statue!

Toy Fair 2017 Kotobukiya Spider-Man 2099 ARTFX+ Statue

With five of the seven Kotobukiya Spider-Man ARTFX+ statues currently up for order, I was hoping that Koto would surprise us by debuting the two final figures in the line at New York Toy Fair 2016 over the weekend.

Well, I guess one out of two ain’t bad–we’ll have to wait a bit longer to see the prototype of the Venom ARTFX+ statue, but the Kotobukiya Spider-Man 2099 statue has now been revealed!
