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…

Funko Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 Collector Corps Box Review!

Funko Collector Corps Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 Box Review Spoilers Photos

Of the many Funko Marvel Collector Corps boxes that have shipped since the advent of the series, the single most divisive box among subscribers was the MCC Guardians of the Galaxy box that shipped at the end of 2015. Personally, I loved the scarf and ornaments in that box–but not everyone shared my sentiments. But while that box wasn’t a unanimous hit, I think the latest one might be! While the Spider-Man Homecoming Box is now up for order, let’s have an in-depth review of this month’s outstanding GOTG Vol. 2 Box before we look to the future!

Bandai SH Figuarts Star-Lord Figure Revealed!

Star-Lord Figuarts Figure Chris Pratt Likeness

Bandai Japan announced that they had acquired the Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 license a few months back, but I started getting a little fidgety wondering if they were actually going to use it when April arrived and we hadn’t seen a single prototype. But while there’s still no word on what characters will be in the S.H. Figuarts GOTG Vol. 2 lineup, we at least know one figure that is on the way: the SH Figuarts Star-Lord figure has now been revealed!

Spoilers: Funko Collector Corps GOTG Vol. 2 POP Vinyl Exclusive!

Collector Corps Rocket Raccoon Baby Groot POP Vinyl Revealed

We’re officially under one month away from the Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 movie hitting theaters–but only one week away from the deadline to order the Funko Marvel Collector Corps GOTG Vol. 2 Box! Funko has been pretty tight-lipped about the contents of this box since it was announced in February, but we got a major hint today. And by “hint”, I mean “complete spoilers for the exclusive POP Vinyl figure included”! It’s a cutie, but I suspect this choice will be a divisive one…

2017 Marvel Legends Drax Review & Photos GOTG Vol. 2 Hasbro

2017 Marvel Legends Drax Movie Figure Review

I posted my reviews of the Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 Marvel Legends Yondu and Star-Lord figures earlier this month, and now it’s time to complete the set with the last movie figure in Wave 1! Drax is arguably the least popular member of the team, and you can get this new Marvel Legends Drax figure for about $17 online right now–but is it worth upgrading if you already own the 6″ Drax figure from the first movie?

2017 Marvel Legends Star-Lord 6″ Figure Review GOTG Vol. 2

Close-Up of Marvel Legends Star-Lord Figure Chris Pratt Head

Earlier this week I talked about the high-end life-size eFX Star-Lord Helmet prop replica that very few collectors can (or will) be buying. So today, let’s take a look at a Guardians of the Galaxy movie Star-Lord toy that pretty much all of us can afford–and many of us already have! Hasbro’s 2017 Marvel Legends Star-Lord figure is now available online for below the retail price, and it’s downright perfect–as long as you’re looking at it from the right angle…

eFX Star-Lord Helmet Prop Replica Finally Up for Order!

eFX Collectibles Star-Lord Helmet Prop Replica

Marvel eFX Collectibles can be a tough line to collect. No, not because they aren’t top-notch–eFX inarguably makes the nicest Marvel prop replica collectibles in the land. The true frustration for eFX collectors is that it oftentimes takes years for prototypes eFX shows off to go up for sale–if they go up for sale at all. Luckily, topic’s subject is for the former case: after literally years of being shown at events, the eFX Star-Lord helmet prop replica is finally up for order!

Kotobukiya Star-Lord & Spider-Man 2099 Statues Up for Order!

Kotobukiya Spider-Man 2099 ARTFX+ Statue Official Photo

Well, it looks like it’s a good thing I didn’t delay too, too long in posting my Kotobukiya New York Toy Fair 2017 photo previews–because the Kotobukiya Star-Lord ARTFX and Spider-Man 2099 ARTFX+ statues are now up for order! Along with the pre-order solicitation comes the official photos, specs and pricing info, so let’s take a look at all the details about these two figures that made their debut at the 2017 Toy Fair last month…

Marvel Legends Yondu Review (Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2)

Review Marvel Legends Yondu Figure

I started my reviews of the new Guardians of the Galaxy Marvel Legends series several weeks back, but got sidetracked by the news juggernaut that was New York Toy Fair 2017. But now it’s back to reviews! And this time, I’ll be covering a movie character who probably deserved to have a figure for the first movie–but didn’t. Luckily, Hasbro has come a long way in three years. So even though he’s already down to 16 bucks shipped online, the first-ever 6″ Marvel Legends Yondu figure we’re getting this year is way better than the one we would have gotten in 2014…

Toy Fair 2017: Kotobukiya Star-Lord ARTFX Statue Revealed!

Toy Fair 2017 Kotobukiya Star-Lord & Baby Groot ARTFX Statue

This week’s Marvel toy news drought is still going strong, so it’s time for me to pull from my remaining photos stash from last month’s New York Toy Fair 2017! Like most years, Kotobukiya had a 1/6th scale Marvel ARTFX statue on display at Toy Fair 2017. But unlike most years (okay, every year), this time it wasn’t Iron Man-related! Coming later this spring, it’s the Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 Kotobukiya Star-Lord ARTFX Statue!
