NYCC 2017 Marvel Select Thor Ragnarok Figures Photos

My apologies for the sparse updates—I haven’t been feeling so swell during or after NYCC 2017, so things have been a bit slow. But! I’m looking to close out my New York Comic Con 2017 coverage today and tomorrow, beginning with all the 7” Marvel Select figures goodness that Diamond Select Toys brought to the show—including the Thor Ragnarok Gladiator Hulk & Thor Figures, the long-awaited Guardians of the Galaxy movie figures, Spider-Gwen and more!

NYCC 2017: Marvel Gallery X-23 Wolverine & Black Widow Statues!

NYCC 2017 Marvel Gallery X-23 Statue Wolverine

One of my favorite lines of the year has been the exploding Marvel Gallery PVC statue series, and so the Diamond Select Toys Booth was among my first stops at New York Comic Con 2017. While I talked about DST’s outstanding resin Cable and Deadpool statues over the weekend, they brought along some goodies for the PVC fans as well—brand new Marvel Gallery X-23 Wolverine and Black Widow statues!

NYCC 2017: DST Marvel Premier Cable & Deadpool Statues!

Diamond Select Toys took me by surprise at New York Toy Fair 2017 by being my favorite exhibitor at the show for their huge variety of affordably-priced Marvel statues. I wasn’t sure that at NYCC 2017 they could win my “Best in the Show” award again (as far as Marvel statues go), but that was before I got to their booth and saw their sensational new Marvel Premier Collection Cable Statue in person, the complement piece to their Deadpool statue that went up for order last month…

NYCC 2017: SH Figuarts Gladiator Hulk & Thor Figures!

Traditionally, Bandai S.H. Figuarts Marvel figures haven’t had a presence at New York Comic Con (since prior to last year, Bandai didn’t have a license to sell Marvel figures in the United States at all). But things are different now from how they’ve been historically, and Bluefin Distibution brought along all of the upcoming U.S. Marvel Figuarts that are on the way—including the world premiere of Thor Ragnarok Figuarts Gladiator Hulk and Thor!

NYCC 2017: Kotobukiya Daredevil ARTFX+ Defenders Statues!

Kotobukiya Defenders ARTFX+ Statues NYCC 2017

Kotobukiya has been teasing their next series of 1/10 Marvel ARTFX+ statues all year long, and at San Diego Comic Con 2017 in July they officially announced the new series would be the Defenders. As soon as that was confirmed, I had a hunch who would be leading off the line as the headliner, and it was verified today at NYCC 2017: the Kotobukiya Daredevil ARTFX+ Statue has now been revealed! And hey—it comes in black, too!

NYCC 2017: Sideshow Spider-Verse Statues! Silk! Spider-Man!

After today, I don’t think there’s any question about it: Spider-Verse is “the next big thing” as far as what’s coming down the pike for Marvel statues from Sideshow Collectibles! Not only did the red-hot Exclusive Spider-Gwen Statue with extra masked head go up for order, but the next two figures in the Spider-Verse statues series were revealed at New York Comic Con 2017: Silk and Spider-Man himself!

Sideshow Spider-Verse Spider-Gwen Statue Poster

It’s pretty much beyond question that Deadpool has been the hottest character at Marvel for the past couple years. But if there’s a modern comics character who can even approach the Merc with a Mouth in popularity, it’s the sensational Spider-Gwen! It was only a matter of “when”, not “if”, Sideshow Collectibles would get around to their own Gwen Stacy Spider-Woman. And now, we know exactly when we can order her—the Sideshow EXCLUSIVE Spider-Gwen statue is now up for order!

I’m currently running around NYCC 2017 like a crazy person, fighting the mobs to get the best possible photos of every Marvel figure and statue on the floor. So… no beautifully written article on the new Marvel Legends just yet! But how about hi-res photos of the new Marvel Legends Prowler, Taskmaster and Spider-Man Noir Figures instead, along with some notes from this morning’s Hasbro Marvel press event?

NYCC 2017: Marvel Legends X-Men Gladiator! Madrox!  

The last couple of years, Hasbro has laid all their NYCC cards on the table at their wild and crazy Night Before New York Comic Con parties. But this year, Hasbro is doing things a bit differently—they decided to kick off NYCC 2017 proper with a special Thursday morning media event! And what did we get to see at said event? Well, how do Marvel Legends Multiple Man and Gladiator sound to you…?

ONE:12 Collective Defenders Doctor Strange Exclusive Figure!

Previews Exclusive Doctor Strange ONE 12 Collective Modern Variant Figure

From Captain America to the Red Skull, every single character released as part of the Marvel Comics ONE:12 Collective Figures series has come in at least two different flavors. And so, even though he’s a character who really only has one iconic look, I don’t think there’s anyone who wasn’t expecting to see a variant of the Master of Mysticism appear. And though we’ve had to wait 8 months for it, it’s finally been announced: the Exclusive Defenders Doctor Strange ONE:12 Collective Figure is now up for order!

But it looks like there was one company left with a rabbit (or spider) in its hat: ThreeA Toys!
