Close-Up of Marvel Legends Abomination SDCC Exclusive Figure Head

Today is the big day that Hasbro will be selling the remainder of their SDCC 2016 exclusives stock online, so what better day to look at another heavy-hitter from the SDCC Marvel Legends The Raft set than today, right? I expected him to be one of the most sought-after figures from the set on the aftermarket, but the Marvel Legends Abomination is actually one of the least expensive figures from the set! Is the lack of interest in this Abomination figure justified…?

LEGO Spider-Man Web Warriors Ultimate Bridge Battle Set Box

While Hasbro has spoiled Marvel Legends collectors with new figures released every month this year, LEGO collectors have it rougher, with only two full waves of LEGO Marvel sets being released per year.

Close-Up of Dreadknight Marvel Legends Six Inch Figure

Marvel Legends San Diego Comic-Con exclusive sets are famous for bringing us some off-the-wall characters that we’d likely never see at mass retail, and I think that’s epitomized by the subject of today’s review: Marvel Legends Dreadknight! While Dreadknight is actually selling for surprisingly cheap on the aftermarket, he surpasses the Enchantress as my favorite figure in the con exclusive set this year…

Marvel Collector Corps Year One Box Review & Photos!

Funko Marvel Collector Corps Year One Box Review Unboxing

When Funko announced the Marvel Collector Corps Year One box, I immediately speculated that the extra $100 the box cost was to cover a gold Captain America Hikari in honor of the first year Founders Gift and Cap’s 75th Anniversary.

Ordinarily there’s a bit of a Marvel toy news lull after San Diego Comic-Con, but that doesn’t seem to be the case this year!
