NYCC 2017 Exclusive Snow Strike Black Widow Figure

With New York Comic Con 2017 just two days away (I’m leaving for NYC tomorrow so that I can start coverage bright and early Thursday morning, by the way), you might have thought that we were done seeing major companies announce exclusives for the show (I sure did).

For the first time ever, 3A Toys will have a NYCC Exclusive Marvel figure: the just-revealed 3A Snow Strike Black Widow figure!

With just one week to go to NYCC 2017, Toys R Us has announced an exclusive line of Marvel Fan Girls dolls to accompany their Funko Baby Groot with Button POP Vinyl, Armored Black Panther Tsum Tsum and 12″ Lockjaw Plush to the show!

REVIEW: Marvel vs Capcom Infinite Statues & Infinity Gems 

Comic books and fighting games are two of the seven great loves of my life, so when Capcom started making arcade games featuring the X-Men and various Marvel Superheroes a few decades back, I was hooked for life. And when a $200 Marvel vs Capcom Infinite Collector’s Edition went up for sale earlier this year with four statues and a set of Infinity Gems included, well… cue that “Take my Money” meme. The big day came this week and the box set arrived… but not everything is quite as advertised…

Review Hascon Deadpool X-Force Marvel Legends 6" Figure

Although I wasn’t quite sure what to expect from HasCon when it was first announced, the inaugural event turned out to be one of the more unique and focused conventions that I’ve attended. A con where the unifying element is programming and displays of most of my favorite toy brands ever? Sign me up.
