Marvel Collector Corps Secret Wars Review & Unboxing!

Funko POP Vinyls Thor Secret Wars Exclusive Figure

After realizing that 95% of the stuff that came in each month’s Loot Crate was just that I ended up throwing into a Goodwill box, I quickly fell out of love with Loot Crate and cancelled my subscription.

Luckily, Funko launched the Marvel Collector Corps to fill the mystery box void in my heart. And after two decent first boxes, Funko really struck gold with their August 2015 Marvel Collector Corps Secret Wars box, which is easily the best mystery box I’ve ever gotten…

Amazon Exclusive Marvel Legends 4 Pack Age of Ultron

On Valentine’s Day, Hasbro won the love of thousands of Marvel Legends movie figure collectors when it revealed the Amazon exclusive Marvel Legends Avengers Age of Ultron 4-Pack Box Set. Up until the Toy Fair, it appeared that the entirety of the 6″ Age of Ultron lineup would simply be retooled Captain America, Iron Man and Hulk figures.

Marvel Select Unmasked Ant-Man Revealed & Up for Order!

Disney Store Exclusive Unmasked Ant-Man Marvel Select Action Figure

Let’s face facts: there are not a ton of marketable characters (as far as merch goes) in next month’s Ant-Man movie. When the third-biggest name in the movie is “Ant-thony the Ant”, you know you’ve got a problem. And so, I’ve been waiting patiently for the first of the inevitable Unmasked Ant-Man figures to be revealed. I thought it would be Funko, but I was wrong: the exclusive Marvel Select Unmasked Ant-Man is now up for order!

Walgreens Exclusive Marvel Minimates Animated Figures!

Marvel Animated Minimates Spider-Man 2099 Figure

With somewhere around a thousand Marvel Minimates figures released over the years (no, seriously–there’s right around a thousand), it might seem like there’s not a lot of fresh directions for Diamond Select Toys to take the mini figures line in.

But in a real surprise move, it was announced today that there actually is a new frontier of untapped potential for Marvel Minimates. An all-new line of Minimates Marvel Animated figures is on the way–and it’s exclusive to Walgreens!

Exclusive Funko Glow in the Dark Yellowjacket POP Vinyl!

Amazon Exclusive Funko GITD Yellowjacket POP Vinyls Ant-Man Movie

I’m pretty sure that at this point, Funko is releasing enough new vinyl figures for every collector to buy one each day of the year (money willing). And while the majority of those releases are still general, mass-release items, there’s plenty of exclusives to go around! Though Amazon didn’t get their own exclusive for Avengers Age of Ultron, they did have exclusives for Guardians of the Galaxy and Big Hero 6. And now, the tradition continues with another sure-to-be fast-sellout: the exclusive Funko Glow in the Dark Yellowjacket POP Vinyls figure is now up for order!

Sideshow Premium Format Spider-Man Statue

Here’s a Marvel toys fact that may blow some minds: even with the increasing multitude of Sideshow Collectibles Premium Format Figures being released each year, there’s only been one classic red-and-blue Spider-Man Premium Format Figure released.

But there are some characters that once just isn’t enough for, and Spidey is one of them: the new Sideshow Exclusive Spider-Man Premium Format Figure is now up for order!

Marvel Mashers Hulkbuster Iron Man Released & Photos!

Walmart Exclusive Hulk Buster Mashers Figure Released

Most recent Marvel movies have had a clear breakout character, be it Hulk, Loki or the Winter Soldier. Avengers: Age of Ultron is a little bit weird, though, in that its breakout star isn’t a new character at all–it’s an armor! Having generated more hype and merch than just about any other character, it’s a surprise that the kid-focused Marvel Mashers line hasn’t gotten its own Hulkbuster before now. But the wait is at an end–the Mashers Hulkbuster Iron Man has arrived… and it’s exclusive to Walmart!

Remember the awesome speedboat chase sequence in “Iron Man 3”, or the climactic battle between a tank-driving Mandarin and Iron Man? How about the slick War Machine Mark II armor making it’s debut in the same movie? No…? That’s because all,of that stuff ended up on the cutting-room floor of “Iron Man 3”. And it looks like the proud tradition of deleted material being captured in collectible form is continuing–the exclusive Kotobukiya Rampaging Grey Hulk ARFTX+ statue is now up for order!

Exclusive Funko Black Costume Storm POP Vinyl Released!

Hot Topic Exclusive Funko POP Vinyls Black Storm Variant Figure

Ororo Monroe–Storm–has been the subject of some of the longest-running debates in X-Men history. “Who is the most famous X-Woman: Storm or Jean Grey?” “Who is Storm’s OTP: Forge, Black Panther, or Wolverine?” “Who is the greatest leader of the X-Men: Storm or Cyclops?” And perhaps the biggest question of them all: “Which is Storm’s most iconic costume: black or white?” While Funko initially sided with Team White Costume, there’s hope for the other camp: the Hot Topic Exclusive Funko Black Costume Storm has now turned up for sale online and in some Hot Topic stores!
