REVIEW: Marvel vs Capcom Infinite Statues & Infinity Gems 

IMG_2708-0

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…

NECA Life-Size Iron Man Foam Figure Revealed! Photos & Order Info!

NECA Life Size Iron Man Civil War Armor Foam Figure

I’m about to head out the door and head down to Providence for HasCon 2017, but I just had to finish writing up a quick article to post before leaving. If you thought every conceivable figure of Iron Man that could possibly be released based on his Civil War armor had already been released, you thought wrong. Coming soon from NECA–the Captain America Civil War Iron Man Life-Size Foam figure is now up for order! “Weird” does not begin to describe this toy…

Marvel Play Arts Kai War Machine Figure Photos & Order Info!

Marvel Play Arts Kai War Machine Figure

A couple years back, it looked like the Play Arts Kai Marvel Variant line might be on its last legs when they released a trio of straight-up “Special Color Version” repaints. Among these was an Iron Man Special Color Ver. figure that had been repainted into War Machine colors. At the time, that seemed likely to be the only Play Arts War Machine figure that would ever be produced. But there’s bucks to be made on revisiting the second most popular Iron Man character, and Square-Enix is set on making them–the Play Arts Kai War Machine figure is now up for order!

Marvel Unlimited Plus Marvel Legends Tony Stark 6″ Revealed!

Marvel Unlimited Plus Exclusive Marvel Legends Tony Stark Figure 2018

…And we’re back! I do apologize for the downtime over the course of the past few days, as what was supposed to be a quick upgrade to a faster server turned into 100+ hours of downtime. I was so bored while this site was down, I even cranked out a review of DC Multiverse Justice League Aquaman! But luckily, now that we’re back up and running, there’s some actual new Marvel toy news to report: the Marvel Unlimited Plus 2018 Exclusive Marvel Legends Tony Stark figure has now been revealed!

SH Figuarts Homemade Suit Spider-Man & Iron Man Figures!

SH Figuarts Spider-Man Homecoming 2-Pack

At this point in late summer, merchandisers are firmly going all-in with Thor Ragnarok toys and pretty much every toy coming for Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 and Spider-Man Homecoming has gone up for sale. But it looks like there was at least one major holdout, as Bandai Japan had two more Spider-Man Homecoming figures waiting in the wings: the SH Figuarts Homemade Suit Spider-Man and Iron Man Mark 47 figures are now up for order!

Exclusive Hot Toys Iron Man Mark II Die-Cast Up for Order!

Hot Toys Iron Man Mark II Die-Cast MMS Figure

Having gotten fans’ excitement revved up to a fever pitch with a multitude of new sixth scale figures shown at San Diego Comic-Con last week, it looks like Hot Toys now wants to step up and make their fortune (and empty collectors’ wallets) all in a single day! Following up on the Thor Ragnarok Gladiator Hulk and LE Roadworn Hulk pre-orders earlier today, Hot Toys is now taking aim at Iron Man fans: the Exclusive Hot Toys Iron Man Mark II Die-Cast is now up for order!

SDCC 2017: Marvel Legends Lasher & Vintage Iron Man Revealed!

Marvel Legends Vintage Series Iron Man SDCC 2017

With the all-important Hasbro Marvel panel happening just a few hours from now, I would have totally understood if Hasbro has decided to just not add any new reveals at all to their San Diego Comic Con booth display up until they drop the mega-ton later today. And for the most part, there’s not a whole lot that’s all-new in the booth today–with one key exception! We can add one more to the list of confirmed characters in the Marvel Legends Vintage Series, as the 6″ Vintage Iron Man has now been revealed!

UPDATE: And now Tony Stark has some company in the display case–the Marvel Legends Lasher figure has been added!

Marvel Legends Spider-Man Homecoming 2-Pack Released!

Marvel Legends Spider-Man Homecoming Two-Pack Released

Opening day has finally arrived for a film that many fans never thought would actually exist: the first Spider-Man movie set in the official Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU)! A day this momentous deserves to be commemorated, and that’s why it’s only fitting that a long-anticipated multi-pack is finally popping up in stores: the Marvel Legends Spider-Man Homecoming with Iron Man has now popped up on ebay and in some local Toys R Us stores!

Sentinel House of M Iron Man RE:EDIT Figure Up for Order!

Close-Up of Sentinel House of M Iron Man Figure

Given the massive success of the all-out insane number of Iron Man toys released in the last decade, I’ve come to the conclusion that pretty much every Iron Man armor permutation that’s ever existed is “on the table” as far as potential new figures that we could see from any company at any time. But if there’s one armor I legit never thought we’d see revisited by anyone again, it’s the Sapien Deathmatch armor. Clearly Sentinel thought otherwise, though, because the Re:EDIT House of M Iron Man figure is now up for order!

Marvel Legends Spider-Man Homecoming Iron Man 2-Pack Photos!

Spider-Man Homecoming Marvel Legends Two-Pack Packaged

Way back in February, when Hasbro started teasing the Marvel Legends Spider-Man Homecoming figures series, one of the very first items that we got to see was the new Marvel Legends Homecoming Iron Man Mark 47 figure. I saw Iron Man Mark XLVII and his two-pack partner (Tom Holland Head Unmasked) Spider-Man at Toy Fair, but that’s the last that we saw the duo… until today! The first packaged photos of Spider-Man Homecoming Marvel Legends 2-Pack have popped up online!

Hot Toys Spider-Man Homecoming Iron Man Mark 47 Die-Cast Figure!

Iron Man Mark 47 Hot Toys Figure Die-Cast MMS

“What’s that? Hot Toys is making a new Iron Man figure?! You don’t say!” But seriously, due to the complex licensing between Sony and Disney for Spider-Man, the Spider-Man Homecoming Iron Man Mark 47 armor permutation is the first armor in a long, long time I wasn’t sure if we’d get a fully-articulated die-cast version of. A semi-poseable Mark XLVII went up for sale a few months ago, but I shouldn’t have doubted–the Hot Toys Iron Man Mark 47 Die-Cast figure is now up for order!

Marvel vs. Capcom Infinite Figures: Iron Man vs Mega Man X!

Hasbro Marvel vs Capcom Infinite Figures Mega Man X vs Iron Man Hi-Res

If one announcement at New York Toy Fair 2017 made me do a double-take of disbelief, it was when Hasbro flashed the Marvel vs. Capcom Infinite logo at their press event. Toybiz did MvC figures way back when, but it’s a phenomenon I thought we’d never see again. Hasbro thought otherwise, and as the first (perhaps only?) entry in the line, they premiered a Target Exclusive Marvel vs. Capcom Infinite Iron Man vs. Mega Man X set at E3 this week!

UPDATE 6/17/2017: Added the Hi-Res Image of the Set!

SDCC 2017 Exclusive Dark Phoenix & Unmasked Ironheart Statues!

SDCC Exclusive DST Dark Phoenix PVC Figure

Last month, Diamond Select Toys was one of the first companies out of the gate to officially announce their San Diego Comic Con 2017 exclusives, including the Marvel Gallery Superior Iron Man and X-Men Deadpool statues. It looked like that was going to be it for DST Marvel exclusives for the show, but looks can be deceiving: the SDCC 2017 Exclusive Dark Phoenix & Unmasked Ironheart Marvel Gallery statues have now been revealed!

Marvel Gallery SDCC 2017 Exclusive X-Men Deadpool Statue Variant

Earlier this month we got our first peek at a major SDCC 2017 Exclusive Marvel toy when photos of the Marvel Legends Thor set of figures leaked out. But now, it’s time for an official, intentional announcement from Diamond Comics! As usual, Diamond Select Toys has multiple Marvel SDCC Exclusives lines up–and this year, it’s in the form of the two SDCC 2017 exclusive Marvel Gallery Statues: Superior Iron Man and X-Men Deadpool!

Funko Spider-Man Homecoming POP Vinyl Exclusives! Iron Man!

Target Exclusive Spider-Man Homecoming Iron Man POP Vinyls Two-Pack

Ever since Funko debuted their line of Spider-Man Homecoming POP Vinyls figures at New York Toy Fair 2017 and there was no Iron Man to be seen, I’ve been assuming the Homecoming Iron Man POP must be exclusive to the Marvel Collector Corps Spider-Man Homecoming box coming next month. But it looks like that’s not going to be the case, but Funko has just announced POP Spider-Man Homecoming exclusives–including a Target exclusive two-pack with Iron Man!
