Funko X-Men Mystery Minis Case Layouts: Hot Topic! Gamestop!

Funko Cable Kitty Pryde Mystery Mini X-Men Exclusives

In my grumpy old age, I don’t have the fervor for pulling blind boxes I did when I was a kid (in college). So I wasn’t enthusiastic when it was announced there were going to be six exclusive Funko X-Men Mystery Minis figures mixed in the Gamestop and Hot Topic assortments. Not wanting to buy 3 cases to complete my set, I decided to test case layouts submitted by readers. Six blind boxes later, my set is complete and the X-Men Mystery Mini case layouts are confirmed…

Marvel Legends Ms. Marvel Kamala Khan Figure Review 2017

Ms. Marvel Kamala Khan Marvel Legends Embiggened Right Arm

Of all the characters in the first wave of Spider-Man Marvel Legends 2017 figures, none of them are getting anywhere near the amount of hype as the new inheritor of the name Ms. Marvel–Kamala Khan!

But while Marvel Legends Kamala Khan selling for a mint right now online, is she also a risky purchase…?

Marvel Legends Morbius 3.75″ Figure Review & Photos

Marvel Legends Morbius 3.75" Action Figure

I had been planning on today’s Marvel Legends review being the new 6″ Kamala Khan Ms. Marvel figure, but those plans went off the rails when Kamala’s arm peg broke in half at the elbow. And so, while I hunt for a Ms. Marvel replacement, the former Marvel Universe 3.75″ line gets the spotlight instead tonight! The 4″ Marvel Legends Morbius is currently marked down to $3 online from his $12.99 MSRP, but is this figure really all that bad…?

neca-baby-groot-life-size-foam-replica-statue

Let’s face facts: we are going to be absolutely buried in Baby Groot merchandise in just a few months. When all is said and done, we’re probably going to see more items featuring that little sapling than every other piece of Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 character put together. So with that in mind, I’ve been waiting to see which Marvel licensee would draw first blood by unveiling the first Baby Groot figure. And while I would have almost placed money on Funko, it’s not them–the NECA Baby Groot Life-Size Replica figure is now up for order!

NECA Deadpool 18″ Figure Packaged Photos! Shipping Now!

neca-deadpool-figure-packaged-box

Sometimes–as was the case with this year’s humongous 1/4 NECA Hulk figure–it takes years for NECA to bring a Marvel character to store shelves from the time they debut it to the public. And sometimes–not so much! Today’s subject is definitely the latter, as after just having his existence revealed to collectors earlier this year, the 18″ NECA Deadpool figure is now in-stock and shipping online!

Earlier this month, my future wallet had a heart attack when it was announced at Tokyo Comic Con 2016 that Prime 1 Studio would be creating 1/4 Marvel statues, starting with Spider-Man 2099 and Anti-Venom.

Hasbro Sandman Legends Figure Killing Spider-Man

It doesn’t happen every year, but this winter we’ve been lucky enough for some stores to start receiving the first wave of 2017 Marvel Legends figures before the new year even rolls around! And since I’ve been so blessed as to track down every figure in the wave early, I’d be remiss if I didn’t devote some time to a review of the Build-A-Figure before the holidays. And so, though he isn’t the first Marvel Legends Sandman figure ever, the Sandman Build-A-Figure is definitely the best…

Marvel Legends 2017 Green Goblin 6" Figure Review

When Hasbro tooled up new parts for the Hobgoblin this summer, the writing was on the wall that a new 6″ Green Goblin would be flying in before too long.
