REVIEW: Marvel Legends Ego & Star-Lord Figures Pack

Marvel Legends GOTG Two-Pack Star-Lord and Ego

We interrupt this San Diego Comic Con 2017 coverage to bring you… a review of the final figure in the Marvel Legends Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 series! Hasbro’s GOTG 2 series is perhaps their finest lineup of movie 6″ figures ever, but there was one gaping, planet-sized hole that collectors desperately needed to complete that set. And now, he has arrived: the Marvel Legends Ego & Star-Lord two-pack is now shipping from EE! Is it worth buying this pack just for Ego? Read on…

Marvel Legends Rocket Raccoon & Groot Review & Photos GOTG 2

Marvel Legends Rocket Raccoon & Groot Review

It’s a national holiday today in the United States, and that means no new product reveals or pre-orders–and the perfect time for a new figure review! To my embarrassment, there’s 1.5 members of the Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 team that I still haven’t taken a look at the new Marvel Legends for yet, so today’s a good day to fill that void! They’re finally steadily available online for below retail price–it’s Guardians of the Galaxy Marvel Legends Rocket Raccoon & Groot!

Funko D23 Exclusives 2017 Marvel

Since today is a bit of a slow day due to the impending holiday, it’s the perfect time to catch up on things I didn’t have the opportunity to talk about last week. And among those things are exclusives that most of us will never be within 50 feet of, because they’re totally exclusive to the 2017 D23 Expo happening later this month (as well as to crazy ebay scalpers)! Coming exclusively to the Disney Store at D23 2017: Funko Guardians of the Galaxy Dorbz and Red She-Hulk Rock Candy figures!

Marvel Legends Gamora Figure Review (GOTG Mantis Series)

Marvel Legends 2017 Gamora Review and Photos

When the first Guardians of the Galaxy Marvel Legends movie figures came out in 2014, I was just happy to finally own a 6″ Gamora action figure, so I was able to look past its faults easily enough. Three years later, my tastes have matured and I was ready for Hasbro to blow me away with their new GOTG Vol. 2 Gamora Marvel Legends figure. It looks like other collectors were ready for a new version as well, as the 2017 Marvel Legends Gamora is selling for $30+ online right now. At a glance, she’s one of the best-looking MCU figures ever–but does she hold up overall?

Toys R Us Exclusive Marvel Legends Guardians of the Galaxy Set!

Toys R Us Exclusive Marvel Legends Guardians of the Galaxy Figures 5-Pack

Remember that one crazy time (okay, it was last week) when the Marvel Legends Dark Phoenix & Cyclops figures two-pack arrived in Australia before anywhere else in the world…? Well, it’s happening again–this time, with a full team five-pack! But while the Toys R Us Exclusive Marvel Legends Guardians of the Galaxy box set that’s arrived on ebay may be bigger and more expensive than the Dark Phoenix pack, it’s not necessarily better, that’s for sure…

Marvel Legends Ex Nihilo Figure Review GOTG Mantis Series

Ex Nihilo Marvel Legends Figure Review GOTG Wave 2

It’s been a pretty uneventful holiday weekend for Marvel Toy News (so much so that the most exciting thing I’ve posted is this photo of a Spider-Man Pizza Hut box on social media). But now, let’s celebrate Memorial Day with a review of a fallen hero (of a sort) getting his first-ever action figure from Hasbro this spring: the 6″ Guardians of the Galaxy Marvel Legends Ex Nihilo figure from the Mantis Series! He may have never appeared in a GOTG comic book, but he’s a nice addition to the line nonetheless…

Marvel Legends Adam Warlock Review (GOTG Mantis Series)

Marvel Legends Adam Warlock Review 2017

I kicked it off the Marvel Legends Guardians of the Galaxy Wave 2 reviews with the Mantis BAF over the weekend, but now let’s take a look at the single-packed figure in the series that’s been generating the most buzz among hardcore fans (and likely to be the hardest figure to get outside of buying a whole case). He’s not the major player in the Marvel Universe he was in years past, but the mere mention of his name still drew cheers during the movie sequel: it’s the first Marvel Legends Adam Warlock figure in quite a few years! And this time, he’s brought his evil alter-ego…

Marvel Legends Mantis Build-A-Figure Review & Photos GOTG Wave 2

Close-Up of Marvel Legends 2017 Mantis Build A Figure

When I asked readers who they wanted to see reviewed first from the new Marvel Legends Guardians of the Galaxy Wave 2 Series that’s begun shipping from online retailers, I was expecting a landslide of votes for Adam Warlock and Nebula. But nope–the masses have spoken, and they want to hear about one of the more controversial (for some reason) BAF choices in quite some time. You have to buy six of the seven figures in GOTG Wave 2 to get her, but the Marvel Legends Mantis Build-A-Figure is very much worth it…

Hasbro Music Mix Star-Lord 12″ Figure Review & Photos!

Review Hasbro Music Mix Star Lord 12" Figure

Although the kid-friendly, low-priced Marvel Titan Hero Series 12″ figures are not exactly the cup of tea of most adult collectors, the line has continued to prove successful, and Hasbro has really upped their game with recent electronic releases in the series (including last year’s awesome Civil War Falcon). And this year, it’s Star-Lord’s turn to get the deluxe electronic treatment! The 12″ Music Mix Star-Lord figure is now available for about 20 bucks shipped–and while he won’t be for everyone, I think he’s pretty rockin’ (for a Titan Hero)…

Marvel Legends Guardians of the Galaxy Wave 2 Up for Order!

Marvel Legends Guardians of the Galaxy Wave 2 Figures Packaged

When some retailers in the United States started receiving stock of Marvel Legends Guardians of the Galaxy Wave 2 cases last week, the writing was on the wall that Hasbro would allow online retailers to take pre-orders for the series soon. Initially I heard the rumor that pre-orders would open May 8th, but obviously that didn’t pan out. But hey, two days later is better than two months later, right? The Marvel Legends Guardians of the Galaxy Mantis Series is now up for order online!

Funko Teenage Groot POP Vinyl Amazon Exclusive Up for Order!

Amazon Exclusive Teenage Groot POP Vinyl Variant Swept Hair

Back when the first Guardians of the Galaxy movie came out, the existence of Baby Groot in the credits was a secret. Consequently, we didn’t see any Baby Groot toys for months after the movie. But evidently, the same type of thing is not gonna happen with Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2! Less than a week after GOTG 2 opened, an Amazon Exclusive Funko Teenage Groot POP Vinyl is now up for order!

Marvel Legends GOTG Wave 2 Figures Amazon Listings!

Marvel Legends Guardians of the Galaxy Wave 2 Figures In-Hand

We’ve been waiting over two a half years for this week to arrive (well, at least I have, I don’t know if you have), but the time has finally come: Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 hits theaters later this week! And while for the longest time it didn’t seem like the second wave of movie figures would be hitting stores in time for the movie’s release window, it looks like things have changed–they ain’t cheap, but third party sellers in the U.S. already have the Marvel Legends Guardians of the Galaxy Wave 2 figures in-stock now!

Bandai SH Figuarts Star-Lord Figure Up for Order in the U.S.!

SH Figuarts Star-Lord Six Inch Figure Chris Pratt Likeness Unmasked

When Bluefin Distribution created an entirely new giant wall earlier this month to pair with the Bandai Tamashii Nations SH Figuarts Spider-Man Honecoming figure–just so that it could be released in the United States–it really hit home to me that Marvel Figuarts are here to stay in North America. So it’s not a big surprise that as pre-orders for the leader of the Figuarts Guardians of the Galaxy open up overseas, we’re getting them domestically too: SH Figuarts Star-Lord (with purple explosions effects!) is now up for order in the U.S.!

Hot Toys Life-Size Baby Groot Figure Up For Order!

Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 Groot Hot Toys Life Size Figure Close-Up

If there was a meter that gauged how much of a Hot Toys fanboy you are, I would have caused it to utterly explode a long time ago. I’ve got at least one of every sixth scale Hot Toys Marvel character that’s been released, and God knows how many Iron Man figures. In short, I am hopelessly addicted. I wanted to lead off with that information because it really gives weight to what I’m about to say. What just may be my favorite item they’ve ever made has now been revealed: the Hot Toys Life-Size Baby Groot figure is now up for order!

Marvel Legends Guardians of the Galaxy Wave 2 Packaged!

Guardians of the Galaxy Legends Wave 2 Nebula and Adam Warlock

When Target stores suddenly started restocking the original 2014 Marvel Legends Guardians of the Galaxy series of figures a couple months ago, I speculated it was because 2017 GOTG Wave 2 wouldn’t be out for a while and Hasbro probably wanted Gamora and Rocket available before the movie hit. With the movie under two weeks away now and no pre-order in sight, that certainly seems to be the case. But one thing that is now in sight is images of all seven figures in this wave packaged…
