Funko Marvel Superhero Showdowns Box Unboxing Review & Photos!

Funko Collector Corps Superhero Showdowns Box Review Unboxing

Tragedy stuck last week when the February 2017 Funko Marvel Collector Corps box I ordered arrived at my doorstep less than a day after I left for New York Toy Fair 2017. Oh, the humanity!! …Okay, that’s probably a bit of hyperbole, but it was a disappointment to me to not be home to do an unboxing myself for the first time ever when a new Funko subscription box arrived. But as luck would have it, I have a wife, and I put her to work taking unboxing photos last week, which I’m now using for my Funko Superhero Showdowns review, unboxing and full spoilers…

Sideshow Ghost Rider Sixth Scale Figure

Apparently I must have missed some memos this last week while I’ve been drowning in the tsunami of New York Toy Fair 2017 news and photos, because Sideshow Collectibles was able to launch a figure this afternoon that I had no idea was ready to be solicited!

For the past year-plus, Sideshow Collectibles has been hitting female statues out of the ballpark one after the next.

New York Toy Fair 2017 Marvel Legends Dark Phoenix Figure

Just when you thought that there was no possible way that Hasbro could possibly have a single more Marvel Legends figure to reveal at New York Toy Fair 2017, they go and send out promotional images of two exclusive figures that weren’t allowed to be photographed at the show yesterday!

Toy Fair: Marvel Legends Human Torch Mary Jane & Vulture!

Marvel Legends Human Torch Toy Fair 2017 Walgreens Exclusive

Just when I thought it was safe to go to bed, Hasbro sent out even more images of upcoming 2017 Marvel Legends figures that weren’t on display today at New York Toy Fair 2017! These don’t come as entirely a surprise, as I already saw these figures during the Hasbro Media Event slideshow this afternoon, but we weren’t allowed to photograph the figures at the event. But hey, maybe that’s for the best, because there’s no way our meager photography could look nearly as good as these hi-res official photos of the 2017 Marvel Legends Human Torch, Mary Jane and Ultimate Vulture vs. Spider-Man sets!

Toy Fair: Marvel Legends Lady Thor & A-Force Figures Revealed!

Marvel Legends Lady Thor Jane Foster Six Inch Figure Toy Fair 2016

I’ve been up since 5AM this morning getting ready for Toy Fair and my brain is running on empty, but I just had to stay up a few minutes longer so I could make a quick post about some of this year’s upcoming Marvel Legends figures that collectors are gonna wild over. I’ve been predicting for the past year-plus that the Marvel Legends Lady Thor figure would debut in the Marvel Legends Thor Ragnarok series in Fall 2017, and it’s good to be proven right! But what else is good…? How about this exclusive Marvel Legends A-Force figures box set?!

New York Toy Fair 2017–the biggest toy news event of the entire year–is now just barely over a week away!

Way back in summer 2016, Funko released their first-ever Iceman vinyl figure as part of a SDCC 2016 Exclusive Dorbz X-Men 3-Pack.

When I went to bed around 3AM this morning, I was reasonably confident nothing of importance was going to happen during my usual 5 hours of sleep. As is so often the case, though: I was wrong!

Excitement in the high-end Marvel statue collecting community ignited three months ago when Sideshow Collectibles unexpectedly brought new upcoming quarter-scale statues of Venom and Carnage to New York Comic Con 2016.
