I’m expecting to see tons of surprise announcements of new Marvel toys and collectibles at New York Toy Fair 2017 this weekend (and I’ll be in New York City all weekend long reporting in), but there’s a quasi-surprise this week already! I wasn’t entirely sure that the Sideshow Collectibles Marvel Sixth Scale figure line was legit going to continue (there hasn’t been a new figure order since 2015), but the Sideshow Exclusive Daredevil figure is now up for order!Continue Reading →
There may be a crazy snowstorm raging in New York City this morning, but the weather is no match for the power of a Mezco Toys Pre-Toy Fair event! And this year, for the first time ever, Mezco Toyz had a special treat for collectors (and bums like me who weren’t willing to fight the snow to go into New York City this morning): they live-streamed coverage of the event online! Sure, the camera was a little wobbly and the figures were out of focus, but who cares, because we got our very first look at Mezco ONE:12 Collective Wolverine, Iron Man, Doctor Strange and Netflix Daredevil!Continue Reading →
Some toy companies get a little bit quiet in the month before the New York Toy Fair (and yes, I’ll be braving the bitter Manhattan winter again for you all next month), but Funko isn’t one of those companies! In fact, they hit us up with a double whammy of Marvel POP Vinyls announcements today–including one pair of Jessica Jones figures that’s not exactly “news” and a quartet of Netflix Daredevil Season 2 POPs now up for order that definitely are…Continue Reading →
September 2016 just may be some sort of unofficial Netflix Daredevil merch month, as after getting close to no collectibles released for the show this year, we’ve gotten a healthy dose of new toys announced in the past week! DST announced the Season 2 Minimates box set last week, with Hot Toys opening pre-orders for their fantastic Daredevil sixth scale figure to open this week. And now it’s time for the first high-end statue of the character: the Gentle Giant Netflix Daredevil mini-bust is now up for order!Continue Reading →
It’s been a surprisingly quiet last few months for Marvel Hot Toys collectors, with a couple of Iron Man figures and Doctor Strange being the only new items solicited. But the respite is ending this week with what could be the start of a whole new Marvel lineup within the Hot Toys family: Netflix Marvel TV Series Figures! And there’s really no other way to lead off this new Movie Masterpiece Series lineup than with the character who kicked off Netflix’s Marvel-oriented success: the Hot Toys Daredevil sixth scale figure is now up for order!Continue Reading →
Earlier this week, Mezco Toyz posted the teaser image of their first-ever New York Comic Con exclusive Marvel ONE:12 Collective figure, and today they’ve dropped the whole motherlode of official photos and details regarding the action figure. I wasn’t totally convinced which version of Matt Murdock this was before, but there’s no question now–the ONE:12 Collective NYCC 2016 Shadowland Daredevil figure has now been fully revealed!Continue Reading →
Among the best news of the year for Marvel collectors was that Mezco Toyz had obtained the Marvel license to make mixed-media Marvel six inch figures! Mezco debuted nine figures in their pre-Toy Fair buildup, and eight of those figures have been up for order for a while. So it comes as no surprise that they were saving the final figure in the initial lineup as a NYCC 2016 Exclusive–ONE:12 Collective Black Daredevil!Continue Reading →
After a lengthy wait and excruciating build-up, the very first Mezco Marvel ONE:12 Collective figure was finally available at SDCC 2016 last month: Deluxe Classic Captain America! And now the floodgates can truly open, with a mass of both new characters and variants on the way from Mezco Toyz–including the Previews exclusive ONE:12 Collective Deluxe Punisher and First Appearance Daredevil versions that are now up for pre-order!Continue Reading →
We’re now on the verge of the single most-anticipated night of the year for toy collectors: the 2016 San Diego Comic-Con Preview Night!
While most companies are holding their cards close to their vests until this evening, two big previews have already dropped: the Hot Toys Daredevil sixth scale figure and the Mezco ONE:12 Collective Spider-Man figure!Continue Reading →
The day that Netflix Daredevil fans have been waiting for has finally arrived: highly-detailed, show-accurate Netflix Daredevil figures are on the way! No, they’re not coming in the Hasbro Marvel Legends 6″ line just yet–they’re going to be a little bit bigger (and a whole lot more expensive).
Coming our way soon: Hot Toys Netflix Daredevil sixth scale figures! And Daredevil’s not coming alone–he’s bringing Hot Toys Punisher along for the ride!Continue Reading →
Last week, Mezco Toyz began “the great money siege of 2015” when they put their very first Marvel ONE:12 Collective figure up for order: modern Captain America. While that was a figure that I couldn’t resist, Cap just whet my appetite for the 1/12th action figure that impressed me more than any other at Toy Fair 2016. And thankfully, I don’t have to wait any longer to get in my reservation! Here comes the Man without Fear: the ONE:12 Collective Daredevil figure is now available for order!Continue Reading →
While it seems I’ve (obviously) fallen a little bit short of my goal of completing my New York Toy Fair 2016 coverage before the end of February, I still want to finish discussing everything shown as quickly as possible. And to further that goal, I’m going to combine all of my many Diamond Select Toys Marvel Minimates photos into one giant preview article today, including new Minimates from Netflix Daredevil & Jessica Jones, Civil War, Giant-Size X-Men, Walgreens Series 2.5 and more!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 →
As I was out on the prowl at my local Target yesterday, I noticed that they had an entire end cap set up for Funko products that isn’t usually there.
That end cap was unfortunately cleaned out but for three plain Netflix Daredevil POP Vinyls, but others were luckier than I, as the fully-stocked display includes several as-yet unannounced Funko Deadpool, Daredevil and Punisher toys…Continue Reading →
