SH Figuarts Ant-Man Figure Review & Photos! Civil War

Review Bandai Ant-Man SH Figuarts Figure

Hasbro is releasing more Marvel Legends 6″ figures in 2016 than ever before, but even so, collectors trying to fill out their MCU movie figure rosters are still having a rough time, as only a handful of figures Hasbro puts out each year are movie-based. But Bandai Japan is coming to the rescue with a 6″ Civil War Ant-Man figure! The import SH Figuarts Ant-Man figure will run collectors about $50-$60 online–is he worth it? Read on for my review…

Hot Toys Giant-Man Figure Displayed at ACGHK 2016!

Giant-Man Hot Toys Figure Holding 1/6 War Machine

With San Diego Comic-Con 2016 having been last week and two new Iron Man sixth scale figures having been put up for order just yesterday, you might think that Hot Toys would have already played all of their cards for the time being. But ACGHK 2016 is occurring in Hong Kong this weekend, and Hot Toys has a giant-sized surprise on-hand for collectors: a humongous Hot Toys Giant-Man sixth scale figure is on display on the show–and man, “giant” is not hyperbole in this case…!

Hot Toys Civil War Ant-Man Figure Photos & Order Info!

Civil War Hot Toys Ant-Man Helmet Close-Up

Hot Toys has been giving us a slow and steady rollout of their Captain America: Civil War movie figures for the last few months–so slowly, in fact, that I didn’t realize a half-dozen figures were up for pre-order already!

And today, Hot Toys is going to go ahead with lucky number seven and a figure never-before-shown: the Hot Toys Civil War Ant-Man figure goes up for order later today! Is this better than their original Ant-Man…?

Funko Giant-Man POP Vinyl Released! Review & Photos!

Funko Giant-Man POP Vinyl Review

I went to bed early last night, got a good night’s sleep and got up bright and sunny this morning–because today was the day the last of the announced mass-release Funko Civil War POP Vinyls was finally scheduled to hit stores! But I quickly hit a snag this morning, when I discovered that all of my local Gamestops–who insisted they wouldn’t take reservations–had decided to reserve out all of their received Giant-Man POPs. Thankfully, my wife was sweet enough to zip over to the closest Gamestop to her job and nab me the last 6″ Funko Giant-Man POP Vinyl! Was the big-guy worth all the trouble?

SH Figuarts Ant-Man Figure Revealed

At this point, we’ve seen high-quality photos released of virtually every major character in this year’s “Captain America: Civil War” movie. But there’s one character that’s been hard to spot, and he’s both the MCU’s smallest and largest superhero: Scott Lang, Ant-Man (and someone else). But thanks to Bandai Japan, we’ve got our best look yet at the Civil War Ant-Man costume–the Captain America Civil War SH Figuarts Ant-Man figure goes up for order March 1st!

Funko POP Rides Ant-Thony and Ant-Man Flying Ant Set

With just over two months until Christmas and the Holiday Dancing Groot POP Vinyl announced quite some time ago, I thought that Funko had played all of their cards already when it came to sure-fire best-selling Marvel POP Vinyl Christmas presents. But it looks like they still had one magnificent trump card up their sleeve, and it’s arriving in time for the holidays: the Funko POP Vinyls Ant-Man & Ant-Thony the Flying Ant Set is now up for order!

Hot Toys Ant-Man on Flying Ant Miniature Figure!

Ant-Man on Flying Ant Miniature Figure Hot Toys 2015

Hot Toys is almost indisputably the most popular high-end Marvel licensor, so there’s not a whole lot that they manage to put up for order that still goes under the radar. But I think it’s rather fitting that one item that has snuck out is a rather incognito, shrunken superhero and his faithful ant: the Hot Toys Ant-Man on Flying Ant miniature figure is now up for order! And as you’d expect from Marvel’s smallest hero, it’s the cheapest non-Cosbaby Hot Toys Marvel figure ever released!

Ant-Man Walgreens Marvel Legends Exclusive Figure Released

Remember last year, when the Walgreens Exclusive Marvel Legends Agent Venom figure was revealed at SDCC 2014, and then we had to wait what felt like eons for it to finally start arriving at retail stores…? Yeah–this isn’t gonna be like that. This year, Walgreens has their act together and is ready to strike while the iron is hot. After just debuting in the Hasbro showcase at SDCC 2015 one week ago, the exclusive Walgreens Ant-Man Marvel Legends figure has already begun hitting stores this week!

At San Diego Comic-Con 2015 last week, Hot Toys finally dropped the curtain and revealed their much-anticipated Ant-Man Movie Masterpiece Series figure. Reaction to the overall look of the figure has been positive, leaving most collectors with just one question: “When can we buy it?”

Well, Hot Toys must have figured that what day could be better than the one when Ant-Man hits theaters–the Hot Toys Ant-Man figure is now up for order!

Ant-Man Marvel Legends Giant-Man Review & Photos

Marvel Legends Ant-Man Giant-Man Review

From creating Ultron to smacking around his wife (The Wasp), there’s probably been more criticism aimed at poor ol’ Hank Pym over the years than any other member of the Avengers. But one of Hank Pym’s greatest failures came in recent years, when he allowed a bunch of the children he was responsible for at the Avengers Academy to be kidnapped and brutally murdered by Arcade (yes, Arcade). It’s unlikely that many Avengers Academy characters will ever see the light of day in plastic form, but now we can all commemorate this glorious era in Hank Pym’s life with the Marvel Legends Giant-Man figure available as part of the Ant-Man Legends Series!

Marvel Select Unmasked Ant-Man Revealed & Up for Order!

Disney Store Exclusive Unmasked Ant-Man Marvel Select Action Figure

Let’s face facts: there are not a ton of marketable characters (as far as merch goes) in next month’s Ant-Man movie. When the third-biggest name in the movie is “Ant-thony the Ant”, you know you’ve got a problem. And so, I’ve been waiting patiently for the first of the inevitable Unmasked Ant-Man figures to be revealed. I thought it would be Funko, but I was wrong: the exclusive Marvel Select Unmasked Ant-Man is now up for order!

Glow in the Dark Ant Man Funko POP Vinyls Figure

We’re now under a month until the arrival of the Ant-Man movie in theaters, and that means that the modest onslaught of Ant-Man merch is now beginning to pour into stores! Toys R Us stores decided to break street date and release the Marvel Legends Ant-Man Series into stores earlier this month, and the Funko POP Vinyls Ant-Man and Yellowjacket figures have also begun to hit retail. And now, what may be the coolest of the Ant-Man Funko products is arriving as well–the Hot Topic exclusive Funko Glow-in-the-Dark Ant-Man POP Vinyl is available online and in some stores!

Marvel Legends Ant-Man Series Figures Released!

Ant-Man Marvel Legends Figures Released

What with the Marvel Legends Ant-Man Series having a hard street date of July 3rd 2015 (and Amazon shipping theirs July 1st), I really wasn’t expecting to see the figures hit stores two weeks early. But if there’s one chain that doesn’t mind breaking the rules and ignoring street dates, it’s Toys R Us–and many Toys R Us stores (including mine) have now begun stocking the Hasbro Ant-Man Legends figures early!

Funko SDCC Blackout Ant-Man Hank Pym POP Vinyl!

SDCC Funko Blackout Ant-Man POP Vinyls Figure Hank Pym

While they were super-light on Marvel exclusives at SDCC 2014, Funko is clearly aiming to beat every other licensee in sheer quantity of exclusive Marvel toys at SDCC 2015! Thus far, they’ve announced the X-Force Deadpool Chimichanga Truck, a super-lame unmasked Baymax POP Vinyl, and a not-quite-“limited” Cosmic Powers Deadpool Hikari. And now? Funko has revealed a Marvel POP! that everyone is gonna want: it’s the Funko POP Vinyls Ant-Man Black Out figure, featuring the Hank Pym Ant-Man costume!
