Toy Fair 2017 Hot Wheels Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 Cars

I attended the Mattel Toy Fair 2017 Collector’s Preview event Sunday afternoon to check out the new 6″ Halo figures for Gamer Toy News, and while I was at the event, I noticed some Marvel faces staring back at me from a line I only vaguely knew existed. Never one to turn my nose up at taking photos for Marvel Toy News, I stopped to take some photos of all the Marvel Hot Wheels cars on display at the 2017 Toy Fair…

Close-Up of Marvel Select Homecoming Spider-Man Movie Figure

Earlier today I discussed the Marvel Select Netflix Daredevil and Spider-Gwen figures that we weren’t expecting to see debut at New York Toy Fair 2017 over the weekend, and now it’s time to take a look at the two figures we absolutely were expecting to see premiere at the show: Marvel Select Spider-Man Homecoming costume and Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 Star-Lord! DST is one of the last companies to reveal their interpretations of these characters, so I was worried they might be overshadowed–but these are two Marvel Select movie figures that absolutely do not disappoint…

Ordinarily I don’t like to throw around arbitrary awards like “Best in the Show” for the various conventions and events where collectibles companies show off their latest products, but there was one company at New York Toy Fair 2017 that really “wow”-ed me like never before, and that was Diamond Select Toys. Not only did Diamond Select bring surprise additions to their long-running Marvel Select series, but they also debuted over a dozen new Marvel statues at the show and really cemented themselves as a force in the Marvel statue world. And among those new reveals were their first-ever MCU PVC statues: the Marvel Gallery Guardians of the Galaxy statues!

Marvel Legends Mantis Build-A-Figure Close-Up

I’m not one to put any stock in leaked UPC lists, but when the Hasbro Marvel Legends Ex Nihilo figure was announced last night, that pretty much sealed the deal that the list of 2017 Marvel Legends Guardians of the Galaxy Wave 2 figures that had been circulating for weeks was the real deal and not just a rumor. And at the Hasbro Brand Toy Fair 2017 event today, we got official confirmation and also our first look at the rest of GOTG Marvel Legends Wave 2–including Nebula, Baby Groot and the Mantis Build-A-Figure!

When I went to bed around 3AM this morning, I was reasonably confident nothing of importance was going to happen during my usual 5 hours of sleep. As is so often the case, though: I was wrong! I woke up this morning to discover not one, not two, not three, not four, but five previously unannounced Disney Store/Marvel Shop exclusive comic-based Marvel Select Guardians of the Galaxy figures are now up for order!

Gentle Giant Marvel Animated Groot and Rocket Raccoon Statue Close-Up

Today looks to be a quiet start to another week of Marvel Toy News, so let’s step back and take a look at an item that was revealed last week that’s pretty near and dear to my heart. With the Skottie Young Magneto that debuted at SDCC 2016 being the only Marvel Babies statue Gentle Giant hadn’t put up for sale yet, most people (including me) expected Mags to be the next pre-order in the line. But nope! The next character is actually two characters: the Marvel Animated Groot & Rocket Raccoon statue is now up for order!
