Though I was already running a fever and had mucus pouring out of my nose (isn’t that a lovely picture?) by the time I got to the Minimates panel at New York Comic Con 2015 last Thursday night, I stayed for the entire panel to make sure I didn’t miss anything important. And it’s a good thing I did, because Diamond Select Toys announced an entire series of Minimates that weren’t on display on the actual show floor!

Happy New York Comic Con 2015, everyone! Like Christmas, NYCC comes but once a year–and just like Christmas gets Christmas Eve, there’s a New York Comic Con Eve celebration held each year! And at last night’s pre-NYCC Party, as expected, several new 6″ Marvel Legends 2016 figures were revealed, including Scourge, Whirlwind, Sharon Carter… and a Jim Lee Rogue figure!Continue Reading →
What with Marvel being owned by Disney and all, I guess it was inevitable that someday I would end up discussing Marvel pins here on Marvel Toy News. And while I’ll forgo discussing the Funko POP Pins for the moment (there’s really not much to say about them), what I won’t skip discussing is what just may be my favorite New York Comic Con exclusive this year: the NYCC 2015 Skottie Young Marvel Pins!Continue Reading →
