Though we’re still well over a month from when they’re due to be released, packaged and loose official images of all three of the Winter 2017 LEGO Marvel sets have now been revealed! And while each of the LEGO Marvel 2017 sets brings something new and exciting to the table, perhaps none does more so than the LEGO Iron Man Detroit Steel Strikes Set… with Agent Coulson minifigure and LOLA!!!Continue Reading →
Bandai Tamashii Nations shocked the Figuarts collecting world last month when they put the SH Figuarts Iron Man Mark VI & Hall of Armor set up for order in the United States–the first Marvel Figuarts figure ever released domestically! Many longtime Iron Man Figuarts collectors were wondering if this 2017 Mark 6 figure was improved enough to warrant a new purchase, but now we can judge for ourselves with new comparison photos…Continue Reading →
Although Hot Toys has nearly drowned collectors in new Iron Man sixth scale figures over the past few years, one thing that they haven’t really done is straight-up reissue old figures–until now! In a real surprise twist today, Hot Toys announced that two of their most expensive and sought-after Marvel Movie Masterpiece Series figures are coming back for a return engagement: limited exclusive reissues of Hot Toys Iron Man Mark IV & Mark VI are now up for order!Continue Reading →
In the words of the great Mace Windu: “This party’s over.” At least, the hope of Comicave Studios releasing the full Iron Man 3 House Party Protocol series of 6″ figures is over, anyway. Shocking collectors, Comicave announced overnight that they are discontinuing development on their 1/12 scale die-cast Starboost Iron Man Mark 39 figure. For those out there collecting all lines of Iron Man armors, this is a pretty dark sign…Continue Reading →
UPDATE 10/28/2016: 2016 has already been a pretty epic year for Marvel collectors, with more Hasbro Marvel Legends figures hitting stores than ever before. But it just got a bit more historic!
For the first time ever, an S.H. Figuarts Marvel figure will be available directly in the U.S., and it’s even a figure set that’s only available as a limited web exclusive overseas: the Bandai SH Figuarts Iron Man Mark VI & Hall of Armor Set is now up for order!Continue Reading →
When Bandai Tamashii Nations solicited their first Manga Realization figure in the spring–SH Figuarts Samurai Spider-Man–I was pretty lukewarm on that figure. “Spidey in samurai armor? That doesn’t make any sense! Why didn’t they just make Iron Man?!”
Well, lo and behold, for their second figure in the series, Bandai has: the S.H. Figuarts Samurai Iron Man Manga Realization figure has now been revealed!Continue Reading →
Most companies might be content to just out one several hundred-dollar Iron Man sixth scale figure up for sale the same week as their first three Suicide Squad 1/6 figures and pair of Back to the Future II figures.
But Hot Toys is not “most” companies, and they don’t do things in half measures. And this isn’t just any old Iron Man, it’s one of the most-requested remaining upgrades: the Hot Toys Die-Cast Iron Man Mark VI figure is now up for order!Continue Reading →
Just when I thought that Hot Toys had already hustled movie Iron Man fanboys (like myself) for every possible dollar, they go and come up with something totally out of left field like this! Though we’ve seen this exact Hot Toys Iron Man Mark VII armor released as a sixth scale figure no less than four times before, the unique look of the fifth time is going to be another guaranteed purchase from a lot of collectors. The Sideshow Exclusive Hot Toys Iron Man Sub-Zero Mark VII figure is now up for order!Continue Reading →
Funko is rolling out their list of exclusives in thrice-weekly announcements and Hasbro is expected to officially announce its San Diego Comic-Con 2016 exclusives next week (although at this point we all basically know what they are anyway), but in the meantime, a few other toy companies are filling in their own Comic-Con blanks. And this week, Beast Kingdom announced what’s likely to take the cake as the craziest SDCC 2016 exclusive of all: a 24K Gold Hulkbuster Iron Man figure!Continue Reading →
I’ve fallen behind a bit while I’ve been sick this week (though I did rouse myself out of bed long enough to talk about Funko), so I’ve got a lot to catch up on today. First and most importantly is a major new figure from my favorite Marvel movie. That’s right, get out your pitchforks: I mean “Iron Man 3”. But while that movie isn’t exactly popular (for some reason), I suspect the topic of this post will be: the SH Figuarts Tony Stark figure is now up for order! And Bandai also announced another figure some folks are gonna wait: the Figuarts Iron Man Mark 3…Continue Reading →
Due to the fact that Play Imaginative basically took several years to release any of their super-cool Super Alloy Iron Man figures, there were many, many cancellations and few remaining collectors who ended up with their under-produced 6″ Super Alloy Iron Man Mark 42 figure. As a result, that 1/12 Mark XLII Iron Man figure has become quite rare these days. But Comicave Studios is giving 1/12 collectors another chance–their Omni Class Iron Man Mark 42 6″ figure goes up for sale this month!Continue Reading →
Due to being a complete repaint of Iron Man Mark 42, almost every Marvel toy company was able to cash in and get their Iron Man Mark 43 figure into collectors’ hands early last year. But one company that didn’t was Good Smile Company–because there was no Figma Mark XLII! But I guess GSC had decided that it’s better later than never, because both Figma Iron Man Mark 42 & Mark 43 are now up for order! But oh yeah–one of these is a limited exclusive figure not available to U.S. buyers… yay?Continue Reading →
Is that the sound of two remaining pennies clinking together in your bank account? Hot Toys sure seems to think that it is–and they want it!
Following up on the ludicrously-successful lightning-fast sell-out of the Civil War Movie Promo Scarlet Witch and Battling Captain America figures last week, Hot Toys is going back to the well with the character more MCU fans find irresistible than any other: the Hot Toys Civil War Iron Man Mark 46 Die-Cast figure is now up for order!Continue Reading →
Though we’re under a month away from the theatrical release of the Captain America: Civil War movie in theaters, we hadn’t heard a peep from Kotobukiya about any collectibles for the movie. At least, not until this week, when they revealed a pair of complementary statues. I don’t think there’s a Marvel collector in the world who’ll be truly surprised by the characters chosen, but these sure are nice-looking Captain America and Iron Man ARTFX+ statues!Continue Reading →
While most of the merchandising companies out there manufacturing Marvel movie collectibles are now looking ahead to the future and “Captain America: Civil War”, I was taken aback a little bit this week when I saw that Medicom is actually looking backwards by soliciting an “Avengers: Age of Ultron” figure that’s arriving a wee bit late: the MAFEX Iron Man Mark 45 goes up for order this week! This figure really does look terrific and has a couple neat things in his favor, but he’s also late to the show and carrying a heavy price-tag…Continue Reading →
