It may have only been a week since Funko announced their New York Comic-Con 2016 exclusive POP Vinyls–and another week until we can actually buy them at NYCC 2016–but it’s time for the Hype Train to leave the station again! Comikaze 2016 Exclusive Funko POP Vinyls have now been announced, and they’re easily my favorite Comikaze exclusives ever: Glow-in-the-Dark She Hulk and Chrome Colossus!Continue Reading →
Yesterday I talked about the tremendous trio of Dorbz that Funko has created for New York Comic-Con 2016 next month, but that’s not all that they’ve got lined up for NYCC 2016 on the Marvel front! Two X-Men POP Vinyls figures will also be available at the event, including one long-overdue classic character and one figure that been MIA for long enough to make a whole baby: the 2016 NYCC Funko Kitty Pryde and Chef Deadool POP Vinyls are on the way!Continue Reading →
Other than that Target Exclusive Winter Soldier Without Arm POP Vinyl that appeared like lightning a few weeks ago, Funko has been almost eerily quiet about new Marvel exclusives lately.
But it looks like that was just the calm before the storm, because Funko has loads of NYCC Exclusives on the way–including two X-Men Dorbz and a numbered, limited edition Thanos Dorbz XL figure!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.

This poor figure has caught some flak from collectors, but I’m not sure he deserves it…Continue Reading →

Sideshow Collectibles didn’t unveil the plethora of new Marvel pieces at San Diego Comic-Con 2016 that they usually do, but the ones that they did show were some of the most jaw-dropping, gorgeous statues at the event. And one of those pieces was among the most impressive Wolverine (and Hulk!) statues that I’ve ever seen. I’ve been looking forward to it since July, but the day has arrived–the Sideshow Exclusive Hulk vs. Wolverine Maquette is now up for order! But all this magnificence comes at a monstrous price…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.

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 →
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 →
While Jonathan Hickman’s lengthy run on the flagship Avengers comics may not have been to every reader’s taste, there’s no question that his run was among the most epic in Avengers history.
And to celebrate the final arc of Hickman’s final pre-Secret Wars storyline, Marvel has now announced the Marvel Unlimited Plus 2017 exclusive Marvel Legends “Time Runs Out” Captain Marvel six inch figure!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 →
Another box has come and gone, and now it’s time to look ahead to the Funko Marvel Collector Corps Doctor Strange box that’s now up for order! As a character that’s never gotten a ton of merch, I’m definitely anticipating this subscription box’s arrival in October 2016. What do I think will be inside? Read on…Continue Reading →
And now for something totally different, let’s look at more store-exclusive Marvel figures that have been recently released! I knew that the Diamond Select Toys Deadpool Minimates series was due to hit Toys R Us stores any time now, and I came face-to-face with the whole series this weekend! There’s only one exclusive two-pack in the wave, but it’s pretty, uh… “Smashing”! An in, “Hulkpool… SMASH!”Continue Reading →
The Hasbro Toy Shop San Diego Comic-Con 2016 exclusives online sale came and went earlier this month–and to the surprise of everyone, the Marvel Legends The Raft set was easily available for hours without a hitch! If you missed it, don’t despair–there are plenty available of The Raft set on the aftermarket for around MSRP!
