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 →
I was totally surprised by the lack of a Funko POP Vinyls Green Goblin in the Villains Marvel Collector Corps subscription box that came out last month, as I figured ol’ Gobby was a shoe-in for a release as a limited exclusive in that box. Well, turns out a Funko Green Goblin is on the way–and he is a limited exclusive! A second series of Walgreens Exclusives has been revealed with Green Goblin, Taskmaster and Iron Spider POP Vinyls!Continue Reading →
I’m pretty sure that the UPS guy hates my guts for making him walk up the steep hill to our doorstep to deliver packages to me basically every single day of his working life, so I typically pretend I’m not home to avoid him. But today was different, as I knew he had my October 2015 Marvel Collector Corps Villains box, so I literally ran down to get the box myself! Wondering what’s inside? Read on for the unboxing photos, along with my review…Continue Reading →
One week ahead of Comikaze Expo 2015, the link to order the Marvel U.S. Agent POP Vinyl has leaked out online!

Get the Comikaze Exclusive Funko POP Vinyls US Agent figure fast if you want him (and use code ‘HEYAUTUMN’ for 25% Off!), because he is not gonna last long online! SOLD OUT!
If you snoozed on the October 2015 Marvel Collector Corps Villains Box, you lose-d, because as of yesterday, that box is totally sold out and no longer available via the Funko Marvel Collector Corps website! But when one door (mystery box?) closes, another opens up–and in this case, that mystery box will be themed after 2014’s most popular Marvel movie! Coming this winter–the December 2015 Marvel Collector Corps Guardians of the Galaxy box! But the big question is: what’s left to put in it that hasn’t been done before…?Continue Reading →
The Hasbro Marvel Titan Hero series of value-priced figures got off to a roaring start in 2015, releasing loads of electronic figures, new characters and even characters from the Avengers: Age of Ultron movie. The second half of the year has been a mite slow for the Titan Heroes range, however, with very few new toys hitting shelves (although the Titan Hero Vision is finally getting into decent circulation and Black Widow is rumored). But finally one more big release for 2015 has arrived–and I do mean big! It’s the mega-sized, 18″ Hulkbuster Armor Titan Hero!Continue Reading →
Though I was already running a fever and had mucus pouring out of my nose (isn’t that a lovely picture?) by the time I got to the Minimates panel at New York Comic Con 2015 last Thursday night, I stayed for the entire panel to make sure I didn’t miss anything important. And it’s a good thing I did, because Diamond Select Toys announced an entire series of Minimates that weren’t on display on the actual show floor! Coming in early 2016–the Walgreens exclusive Marvel Minimates Series 2 figures, including Taskmaster, Gamora, Thanos and more!Continue Reading →
What with Marvel being owned by Disney and all, I guess it was inevitable that someday I would end up discussing Marvel pins here on Marvel Toy News. And while I’ll forgo discussing the Funko POP Pins for the moment (there’s really not much to say about them), what I won’t skip discussing is what just may be my favorite New York Comic Con exclusive this year: the NYCC 2015 Skottie Young Marvel Pins!Continue Reading →
Ordinarily, nothing on Earth would stop me from immediately talking about two newly-revealed Marvel Funko POP Vinyls–especially when one of those POPs happens to be among the most-requested characters ever for the line. But as it turns out, my being in the E.R. for 9 hours yesterday falls outside the realm of “ordinary”. Alas. Regardless, two sure-to-be best-sellers have now been revealed: the Funko Carnage and Anti-Venom POP Vinyls!Continue Reading →
Earlier this week I talked about the arrival of one of the two final 2015 Marvel Legends items: the Target Exclusive Marvel Legends three-pack containing figures of Ultron, Indestructible Hulk and the West Coast Avengers Vision. But that’s not to say that the other final item for this year’s range hasn’t been released recently as well: the Walgreens Exclusive Marvel Legends First Appearance Daredevil figure is also at large! And while he was previously only found online, Classic Yellow Daredevil is starting to show up now in Walgreens stores as well…Continue Reading →
With Q4 2015 beginning tomorrow, it’s almost time to bid our Hasbro Marvel 2015 collecting adieu. Every full series of 2015 Marvel Legends has now been released at mass retail, with just a few exclusives left as holdouts. Or, at least there were some exclusive holdouts left! The exclusive Target Marvel Legends 3-Pack of Vision, Ultron and Hulk figures has now been released in stores! From a certain point of view…Continue Reading →
