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!Continue Reading →
With no substantial rumors swirling about and no leaked images of unknown Marvel Infinite Series 3 3/4″ figures surfacing from overseas, I’ve had my doubts for a while now that we would actually see any kind of exclusive SDCC 2015 Marvel Universe figures set from Hasbro. Well, I think we can effectively put the nail in the coffin of any chance of a SDCC 2015 Marvel Infinite Series set today, as Hasbro has revealed its final two Comic-Con exclusive Marvel items: six figures themed around Ant-Man! But hey… one of them is 3 3/4″. That’s pretty good, right…?Continue Reading →
Up until this week, it had been a month or so since there were new Hasbro Marvel figures released. But recess is over, and Hasbro has declared open season on collectors’ wallets once again! While 20+ Marvel Legends figures went up for sale this week, Hasbro didn’t want to leave their 4″ collectors out in the dust entirely: the Ant-Man & Flying Ant Marvel Infinite Series set is now up for order!Continue Reading →
I woke up this morning to some good news and some bad news. The good news was that the Marvel Legends Ant-Man Series had finally gone up for pre-order! The bad news was: the first place to open orders was the store I trust to fulfill my order the absolute least: Toys R Us online. But wait! Have patience, young grasshoppers, because dependable Ant-Man Legends figure reservations popped up this afternoon: Amazon now has the entire Marvel Legends Ant-Man Series with Ultron Prime Build-A-Figure available for order!Continue Reading →
Yesterday I talked about the first San Diego Comic-Con 2015 exclusive Funko figure, but that’s not the only exclusive already announced! There have been exclusive Marvel Minimates box sets at San Diego Comic Con for so many years in a row that there was never really a question of whether there would be SDCC 2015 Exclusive Minimates figures–the only real question is how many there will be! And while we still can’t answer with certainty how many total exclusives will be at the event, we do know at least two exclusive sets that will be on sale there: the exclusive SDCC 2015 Minimates Ant-Man & Avengers Age of Ultron Sets!Continue Reading →
I’m pretty sure that at this point, Funko is releasing enough new vinyl figures for every collector to buy one each day of the year (money willing). And while the majority of those releases are still general, mass-release items, there’s plenty of exclusives to go around! Though Amazon didn’t get their own exclusive for Avengers Age of Ultron, they did have exclusives for Guardians of the Galaxy and Big Hero 6. And now, the tradition continues with another sure-to-be fast-sellout: the exclusive Funko Glow in the Dark Yellowjacket POP Vinyls figure is now up for order!Continue Reading →
Although the marketing for Avengers: Agenof Ultron was so huge that we were already being inundated with prototypes for upcoming collectibles, the toys and collectibles blitz for Ant-Man has been a lot more… well, microscopic.
But now that we’re just a minuscule two months away from the Ant-Man movie, the figures are finally coming out of the woodwork (just like ants!): the Funko POP Vinyls Ant-Man and Yellowjacket are now up for order!Continue Reading →
When Hot Toys acquired the licenses for Amazing Spider-Man 2, Guardians of the Galaxy and this summer’s Avengers: Age of Ultron movie, they made a major announcement for each and pretty much shouted it from the rooftops.
But Hot Toys has been much quieter about this summer’s other Marvel movie–until this week! The first teaser for the Hot Toys Ant-Man figure has now been revealed!Continue Reading →
For months, rumors have circulated about possible Marvel Legends Ant-Man figures. While it was initially unknown if the Target listing for Marvel Legends Ant-Man referred to a singular figure or an entire series, Amazon accidentally leaked the identities of the six figures that might make up the wave a few weeks ago. But after New York Toy Fair 2015, Hasbro has played all their cards, confirming the six figures we thought were coming–and a Build-A-Figure we totally did not! Coming this summer: the Marvel Legends Ant-Man Infinite Series with Ultron Prime Build-A-Figure!Continue Reading →
Earlier this week I discussed the probably-not-a-Barnes-and-Noble-exclusive Marvel Legends Avengers Dr. Strange series–but that’s not the only new Hasbro Marvel Legends 2015 series to emerge in rumors and whispers this week!
A potential Marvel Legends Ant-Man series has now been leaked on Amazon, including long-lost figures like Tigershark and BULLDOZER!Continue Reading →
Last week, rumors began to circulate that at least one Marvel Legends Ant-Man figure is in the pipeline and will be released at Target stores later this year. But as nice as the Hasbro Marvel Legends figures are, there’s one domestic action figure manufacturer that makes even more detailed and movie-accurate Marvel figures: Diamond Select Toys. And while it’s very unlikely that it’ll be more articulated than the eventual Ant-Man Marvel Legends figure, the Marvel Select Ant-Man figure is now up for order!Continue Reading →
“Will they or won’t they?” has been a hot topic of discussion among collectors regarding toy manufacturers’ plans for this summer’s could-be-big Marvel’s Ant-Man movie. Besides some Funko Wacky Wobblers, none of the big companies have said squat about Ant-Man thus far.
But thanks to the handy-dandy Target DPCI database, we finally know for sure that a Marvel Legends Ant-Man figure is coming in 2015!Continue Reading →
It’s been quiet times for Marvel collectors as we approach the end of 2014, but if there’s one collecting genre that pretty much always has new figures coming out to talk about, it’s designer vinyls! But this article isn’t about Funko (believe it or not), it’s about the Marvel vinyl figures being put out by Emperor Mickey Mouse himself–Disney! Coming to the Disney Parks and online in December 2014–the limited-edition Marvel Vinylmation Iron Patriot, War Machine, and Ant-Man vinyl figures!Continue Reading →
