Way back in February, Hasbro unexpectedly revealed their line of Marvel Legends Premium Role-Play Prop Replicas, including a super-cool life-size Captain America Shield and Iron Man helmet. Many fans cried foul, though, desiring a genuine metal version of Cap’s shield instead of a high-quality plastic version. And to my surprise, Hasbro has heard and obliged–the Marvel Legends Metal Captain America Shield is now up for order! But it will cost you…Continue Reading →
San Diego Comic-Con 2016 begins in one week and one day, but believe it or not, there are still new exclusives being announced each day! And today’s SDCC exclusive Marvel announcement is one that comes totally out of left field. This year’s “Captain America Hydra Sleeper” plot twist is the most controversial plot twist in the Marvel Universe in ages, and the first-ever action figure of Hydra Captain America is coming our way in an unexpected form: the SDCC 2016 Exclusive LEGO Hydra Captain America minifigure!Continue Reading →

And while we’ll be waiting another month-plus to get the first one in-hand, Mezco has now confirmed the SDCC 2016 Exclusive Classic Captain America figure. But that’s not all–the awesome Previews Exclusive Commander Steve Rogers figure is also now up for order!Continue Reading →
When it rains Legends, it pours Legends! We’ve known for a few weeks now that the newest series of Hasbro X-Men Marvel Legends and Spider-Man Marvel Legends 6″ figures would be going up for order on June 1st 2016. Two series of $20 each figures at once can be a lot to handle–but out of nowhere, a third wave has been added to the mix tonight! Though we weren’t expecting it until fall, the Marvel Legends Captain America Civil War Wave 3 cases are now up for order–with movie Scarlet Witch figure!Continue Reading →
Tuesday night, Funko made a megaton announcement of four new exclusive Marvel POP Vinyls (and one Dorbz exclusive): Unmasked and Unhooded Spider-Gwen POP, POP and Dorbz Deadpool in a suit, and an exclusive 75th Anniversary Captain America. Funko said that Cap should have been up for order Tuesday night, but instead we had to stalk Amazon for a day and half. But the wait is over–the Amazon Exclusive 75th Anniversary Sepia Captain America POP Vinyl is now up for order!Continue Reading →
I had to look it up to make sure, but it’s been over half a week since new exclusive Funko Marvel POP Vinyls were revealed. And as far as the King of Exclusives is concerned, that’s far too long! And so, tonight Funko announced five new Marvel exclusives: two Unmasked Spider-Gwen POP Vinyls, a POP and a Dorbz Deadpool in Suits, and an Amazon exclusive 75th Anniversary Sepia Captain America POP Vinyl that goes up for order later tonight!Continue Reading →
I promise I’m not planning to change the name of this site to “Funko Toy News”, but I gotta talk about what’s new in Marvel toy news… and the last few days, it’s all Funko!
The latest newly-revealed figure will help reinforce Funko’s reputation as “The King of Exclusives”, because it’s yet another exclusive Marvel POP. Coming exclusively to Kohl’s (yes, Kohl’s) this spring, it’s the Funko 75th Anniversary Captain America POP Vinyls figure!Continue Reading →
It’s become a bit of a tradition for Hasbro to blow me away with amazing action figures of characters that I frankly do not care about. And it looks like that tradition is about to carry over to another year, as Hasbro has granted us an action figure of a Captain America and Wolverine villain I never expected to see in toy form. The Captain America Marvel Legends Nuke figure is now available online for just above MSRP, and surprisingly, he’s worth buying for way more than the Giant-Man Build-A-Figure piece…Continue Reading →
Back when Funko announced the Marvel Collector Corps subscription box service in February 2015, they promised Founder’s Program members are special gift on the one-year anniversary of their subscriptions. Time has flown, and the much-discussed Marvel Collector Corps Founder’s Gift has arrived: a gold chrome Captain America statue! If you’re not a Founder, you can nab one of these exclusive statues for under $35 right now… but should you?Continue Reading →
I thought the timing of Mezco Toyz teasing their upcoming 1/12 Deadpool and Spider-Man figures this morning was a bit peculiar, what with none of the Marvel ONE:12 Collective figures for this year that we’ve preciously seen even being available for order yet. Of course, what I should have suspected is what turns out to be the case–those sneak peeks were to get us all hyped up to order this first figure in the line! And it worked on me–the ONE:12 Collective Captain America figure is now available for order!Continue Reading →
I heard rumblings a couple weeks ago during Toy Fair that the 2016 Marvel Legends Comic Packs two-packs had landed in the United States, and I’ve been in hot pursuit ever since.
Today, I finally tracked them down at retail–including the hotly-awaited Lady Thor and Sam Wilson Captain America action figures. But while there’s lots to love here, I know some collectors will be disappointed…Continue Reading →
When the lineup for the first 2016 Marvel Legends Captain America series was revealed, I was dead certain that Mockingbird, Bobbi Morse, was destined to be the hottest figure in the wave. As things ended up, Taskmaster stole that honor and became the most sought-after figure in the assortment… but not by much! The Marvel Legends Mockingbird figure is selling for a couple bucks above MSRP right now on the aftermarket–and it’s because she’s worth it!Continue Reading →
I’m committed to completing my review of the entire Captain America Marvel Legends Red Onslaught series before I leave for Toy Fair International 2016 in two days, and I’ve got two figures to talk about in that time. One is an almost 100% new tool that came close to totally blowing me away and is super hot on the aftermarket, and the other… isn’t.
Today I’ll be reviewing the latter: Marvel Legends Whirlwind is now available–should you order one?Continue Reading →
I’m a firm believer in the idea that every character is somebody’s favorite and needs to be treated with respect–but if there’s one character Hasbro has ever produced a 6″ figure of that isn’t anyone’s favorite, it’s likely Cottonmouth. Even so, produce him Hasbro has, and the Marvel Legends Cottonmouth figure is now available! Is it worth expanding your Marvel villains roster with this obscure baddie? Read on for my review…Continue Reading →
Let there be absolutely no doubt about it: we are living in a golden age for Marvel figures and collectibles. And while the market has been starting to get a wee bit crowded over the past year or two, another company is about to enter the fray. At their pre-New York Toy Fair 2016 press event today, Mezco Toyz revealed the first seven figures that they’ll be releasing in their all-new mixed media Marvel One:12 Collective figures line: Captain America, Daredevil and the Punisher!Continue Reading →
