They say that life is cyclical–and it looks like Funko POP! Vinyl collecting may be too! One of my big regrets as a Funko collector is that I never picked up the exclusive yellow-orange Deadpool POP Vinyl that was released a few years ago, and which now sells for well over $100 on the aftermarket. But in their benevolence, Funko is giving collectors another chance at this popular colorway–and Wade’s brought a Peggy Carter variant with him! The online exclusive Funko Yellow Deadpool & Sepia Agent Carter are now up for order!Continue Reading →
I probably own more action figures of Spider-Man than any other Marvel character. In fact, I probably own more Spider-Man action figures than any other character, period. So it isn’t very often that a new Spidey figure goes up for order that I’m really, really excited about. But today, Diamond Select Toys surprised me with just such a figure, as it’s the most comic book-y Spidey around: the Marvel Shop Exclusive Marvel Select Spectacular Spider-Man is now up for order! With the light blue costume and Peter Parker head, this is gonna be my favorite Marvel Select Spidey ever…Continue Reading →
Almost a full month ago, Diamond Select Toys announced the entire specialty stores lineup when the Marvel Minimates Captain America: Civil War figures series went up for order. At that time, we knew the identities of the figures making up the series, but could only see them in blacked-out silhouette form. But this week, DST did the grand unveiling of the set–and we not only got to see the grand unveiling of the figures we knew about, but also the Toys R Us exclusive Hawkeye and Vision Minimates that we didn’t!Continue Reading →
Earlier today I posted the official photos of the upcoming Captain America: Civil War POP Vinyls figures that are due to hit mass retail this spring, but that’s not all that Funko has cooked up for us on the Civil War front! There’s another half-dozen figures that are going to be a wee bit trickier to track down, because they’re going to a variety of retailers as store exclusives! And while five of these figures are just variants of existing characters, the long-awaited and hotly-demanded Funko Falcon POP Vinyls figure is also going to be an exclusive…Continue Reading →
A couple weeks back, Funko went and announced a whole plethora of new Deadpool figures for 2016 in honor of the impending Deadpool movie. But if you thought that that was all the love that Funko was planning to give Wade Wilson this winter, you thought wrong! There are at least a half-dozen more Deadpool POP! Vinyls figures in the pipeline (not counting whatever is in the February Collector Corps box), and two of them have started showing up for sale before Funko can even announce them: it’s the exclusive FYE Blue & Bath Time Deadpool POPs!Continue Reading →
Well, we knew this day would come, and it finally has. After debuting their first three Marvel 1/6th scale figures in July 2014, finally–finally–all three Sideshow Marvel Comics sixth scale figures will have gone up for order as of today.
Deadpool arrived in the fall and Punisher was solicited back in October–and now, the circle is complete! The homicidal-looking Berserker Rage-enthralled Sideshow Exclusive Wolverine Sixth Scale figure is now up for order!Continue Reading →
UPDATE 12/16 2015: If you skipped out on paying full price for this set or even buying it at the Cyber Monday discount of 40% off, it looks like you were smarter than I: the Marvel Legends Avengers Age of Ultron 4-Pack Box Set is now on sale for 50% Off & Free Shipping!
I’m not gonna lie–$40 shipped sounds a lot better than the $80 I paid…! Anyone wait it out for this set and planning to cash in today?Continue Reading →
Returning home from a little bit of late holiday shopping, I discovered what just may constitute a Christmas miracle: UPS had made a Sunday morning delivery of my December 2015 Funko Guardians of the Galaxy Marvel Collector Corps Box!
I’d heard some early criticism about the contents of this box, so I was skeptical, but after unboxing the Guardians of the Galaxy box, this turns out to be my favorite Collectors Corps box so far…Continue Reading →
It seems like yesterday that I was discussing the Funko Marvel Collector Corps Villains box selling out, but once again another box is gone, as the Guardians of the Galaxy Collector Corps box is now sold out forever and shipping before the holidays this month! But don’t fret too much, because the MCC will continue into 2016 with all-new boxes. And to kick off the year, just in time for Valentine’s Day, everything is coming up Deadpool: the Deadpool Marvel Collector Corps February 2016 box is now up for order!Continue Reading →
As soon as Hot Toys revealed the Striker Iron Man sixth scale figure almost a full year ago, I started counting down the days until they announced its Jade Giant-inspired upgraded armor as a limited exclusive repaint (because let’s face it–there’s no way Hot Toys would skip out on a chance to release an awesome figure with no new tooling). And while 354 days is substantially longer than I expected, the destined time has come at last: the exclusive Hot Toys Gamma Iron Man figure is now up for order!Continue Reading →
It seems like only yesterday that I was unboxing my Funko Marvel Collector Corps Villains box at Halloween, but the latest deadline has snuck up on us again: there’s only a week and a half left to order the Guardians of the Galaxy Collector Corps box! And while Funko is remaining as tight-lipped as always with regards to the contents of the December 2015 box, they’ve posted a teaser photo and video that have strengthened the rumors circulating…Continue Reading →
Yesterday I talked about the Funko Exclusive Black Widow with Shield figure that we had to wait a few months for after announcement, but that’s nothing compared to the wait for the subject of today’s review: Marvel Legends Rescue!
We had to wait almost two and a half years for this figure to arrive, and now Rescue is selling for a crazy $100+ on the aftermarket! But is this 6″ Marvel Legends Rescue figure really worth all the fuss? Read on…Continue Reading →
Oftentimes, Funko manages to whisk out exclusive POP! Vinyl figures with such secrecy and expediency that they arrive in stores before collectors even know of their existence.
But sometimes–not so much. And the latest exclusive is definitely of the latter type. After being discovered in the Gamestop database last spring, the long-awaited exclusive Funko Black Widow with Captain America Shield POP Vinyl is finally available online and in some stores!Continue Reading →
