It’s been an agonizing nearly year-long wait for Hot Toys Marvel figure collectors, but those 1/6 Hot Toys Captain America: Civil War movie figures we ordered last spring…? At long last, most of them are finally starting to arrive! And for those who missed out on the first version and didn’t want to pay aftermarket prices for him, there’s no figure from the series more anticipated than Bucky! The Hot Toys Civil War Winter Soldier is now shipping and still available for order–and my review of MMS351 will tell you why you should absolutely get one while you can…Continue Reading →
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…Continue Reading →
LEGO Marvel fans got their first official look at the 2017 LEGO Guardians of the Galaxy sets last week–but that’s not all that The LEGO Group has in store for Marvel collectors this winter! The buildable chibi figure “Brick Headz” theme debuted at SDCC 2016 last summer–and over half a year later, it’s ready for the big-time and a full rollout in stores! The LEGO Marvel Brick Headz sets go on sale next month, including Black Widow, Hulk, Iron Man and more!Continue Reading →
2016 has been a theatrical breakout year for many Marvel characters, including Deadpool, Doctor Strange and Apocalypse. But when the smoke cleared, Captain America stood triumphant once again with the highest-grossing superhero flick in the land. As usual, the Hot Toys Captain America 12″ figure from the film was the best toy of Cap available this year, but not everyone has 200+ bucks to drop on one. But if you’re in that camp, rejoice, because we’re giving away a Hot Toys Civil War Captain America to one lucky reader absolutely free!Continue Reading →
This is the first time that I’ve seen this movie figure dip below MSRP and very well may be the last if Black Panther is any indication, so if you want movie Scarlet Witch and don’t have her yet, this may very well be your best opportunity to nab her…Continue Reading →
If you’ve ever seen a new costume or character design and instantly knew beyond a shadow of a doubt that it had been created solely for the purpose of cashing in with merch, you know exactly how I feel about the Iron Skull.
But while the intent of the Iron Red Skull concept itself is dubious, that doesn’t mean it can’t spawn some cool toys. And today I’ll be looking at the latest Iron Skull action figure to go up for sale–the 6″ Captain America Marvel Legends Iron Skull!Continue Reading →
I was about to officially close the book on my New York Comic Con 2016 coverage when I realized there was one booth I had taken a bunch of photos at and not talked about yet.
These items are quite a bit pricier than the usual “Marvel toys” I talk about here because they’re the highest of high-end MCU collectibles–the eFX Collectibles Marvel movie prop replicas!Continue Reading →
With the Captain America Civil War Blu Ray hitting stores this week, many collectors might have thought the days of new Civil War figures turning up in stores was behind us. But Diamond Select Toys has a fourth and final Marvel Select Civil War figure coming to stores this fall, and they’ve just announced him this week: the Marvel Select Unmasked Captain America Civil War figure! This poor figure has caught some flak from collectors, but I’m not sure he deserves it…Continue Reading →
With more Hasbro Marvel Legends figures and toys coming out in 2016 than any previous year in history, most collectors weren’t going to be able to afford everything. And that’s why, as we approach the end of 2016, lots of Marvel Legends action figures–including the 12″ figures just officially released last month–are already having their prices drastically cut online! From X-Men to Civil War to Spidey, there’s plenty to love on sale! Read on for the best deals available right now…Continue Reading →
I slowly murdered the battery on my iPhone for two years playing the Disney Tsum Tsum game, and now my poor phone battery is cowering in terror after the Marvel Tsum Tsum game released in the United States last week! And hey, what better way to celebrate a new addiction than with new toys, right…? The Marvel Tsum Tsum Spider-Man Series 2 plush–including Spider-Gwen–go up for sale later this month! And a few missing Civil War characters will finally arrive as well…Continue Reading →
It’s been quiet as far as Funko Marvel POP Vinyls go lately… too quiet! But while we’ve hit the point in the year where the vast majority of merch for Disney properties coming out will be Star Wars Rogue One-related, that doesn’t mean Funko doesn’t have a few Marvel surprised left up their sleeve!
And one such surprise appeared out of nowhere yesterday and was immediately all over eBay–a Funko Target Exclusive Winter Soldier POP Vinyl… without an arm!Continue Reading →
Raise your hand if you thought mech-crazy Bandai Japan was going to skip a chance to release a new SH Figuarts Civil War War Machine figure. Anyone…? I thought not. But for those who skipped last year’s expensive Japanese online exclusive War Machine Mark II, don’t expect this one to be any cheaper or easier to acquire–the SH Figuarts War Machine Mark III is yet another Japanese-only web shop exclusive that will only be available via expensive import in the US…Continue Reading →
With hundreds of Marvel action figures getting released each year, sometimes a few fall through the cracks for a few days and then I don’t write a release blurb for them because I think it’s not really “news” anymore. But the dozens of readers writing in to me each day urging me to talk about the 2016 Target and Toys R Us Marvel Legends exclusives seem to think otherwise, so let’s take a look at this summer’s multi-packs…Continue Reading →
While Hasbro has spoiled Marvel Legends collectors with new figures released every month this year, LEGO collectors have it rougher, with only two full waves of LEGO Marvel sets being released per year. The Winter sets were focused on Captain America Civil War, but the LEGO Marvel Summer 2016 sets came available for sale online and in stores this month and include a variety of Spider-Man sets, as well as exclusive Civil War and Doctor Strange movie sets!Continue Reading →
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…Continue Reading →
