Marvel Legends 2018 Figures Hi-Res Photos from NYCC 2017!

Close-Up of Wolverine Marvel Legends 12" Figure

While I posted tons of photos of the newly-revealed Marvel Legends figures from NYCC 2017 (including Gladiator/Multiple Man and Spider-Man Noir/Taskmaster/Prowler) during the con, one thing I didn’t post at the time was photos of the Marvel Legends 2018 figures that were previously announced. But as I close off my NYCC coverage, let’s take a hi-res look at some in-person photos of the 2018 Marvel Legends X-Men, Deadpool, Avengers, Spider-Man and 12” series…

NYCC 2017 Sideshow Collectibles Wolverine and Iron Man Statues

Last year, Sideshow made their biggest Marvel New York Comic Con reveals ever when they debuted their Premium Format Venom and Carnage Statues at the show. This year, they looked to one-up themselves once again by premiering the fully-painted prototypes of the Iron Man Mark III going up for order this week and the Wolverine Premium Format Figure at NYCC 2017!

NYCC 2017: Marvel Gallery X-23 Wolverine & Black Widow Statues!

NYCC 2017 Marvel Gallery X-23 Statue Wolverine

One of my favorite lines of the year has been the exploding Marvel Gallery PVC statue series, and so the Diamond Select Toys Booth was among my first stops at New York Comic Con 2017. While I talked about DST’s outstanding resin Cable and Deadpool statues over the weekend, they brought along some goodies for the PVC fans as well—brand new Marvel Gallery X-23 Wolverine and Black Widow statues!

NYCC 2017: DST Marvel Premier Cable & Deadpool Statues!

Diamond Select Toys took me by surprise at New York Toy Fair 2017 by being my favorite exhibitor at the show for their huge variety of affordably-priced Marvel statues. I wasn’t sure that at NYCC 2017 they could win my “Best in the Show” award again (as far as Marvel statues go), but that was before I got to their booth and saw their sensational new Marvel Premier Collection Cable Statue in person, the complement piece to their Deadpool statue that went up for order last month…

NYCC 2017: SH Figuarts Gladiator Hulk & Thor Figures!

Traditionally, Bandai S.H. Figuarts Marvel figures haven’t had a presence at New York Comic Con (since prior to last year, Bandai didn’t have a license to sell Marvel figures in the United States at all). But things are different now from how they’ve been historically, and Bluefin Distibution brought along all of the upcoming U.S. Marvel Figuarts that are on the way—including the world premiere of Thor Ragnarok Figuarts Gladiator Hulk and Thor!

NYCC 2017: Kotobukiya Daredevil ARTFX+ Defenders Statues!

Kotobukiya Defenders ARTFX+ Statues NYCC 2017

Kotobukiya has been teasing their next series of 1/10 Marvel ARTFX+ statues all year long, and at San Diego Comic Con 2017 in July they officially announced the new series would be the Defenders. As soon as that was confirmed, I had a hunch who would be leading off the line as the headliner, and it was verified today at NYCC 2017: the Kotobukiya Daredevil ARTFX+ Statue has now been revealed! And hey—it comes in black, too!

NYCC 2017: Sideshow Spider-Verse Statues! Silk! Spider-Man!

After today, I don’t think there’s any question about it: Spider-Verse is “the next big thing” as far as what’s coming down the pike for Marvel statues from Sideshow Collectibles! Not only did the red-hot Exclusive Spider-Gwen Statue with extra masked head go up for order, but the next two figures in the Spider-Verse statues series were revealed at New York Comic Con 2017: Silk and Spider-Man himself!

The last couple of years, Hasbro has laid all their NYCC cards on the table at their wild and crazy Night Before New York Comic Con parties.

Well, how do Marvel Legends Multiple Man and Gladiator sound to you…?

With New York Comic Con 2017 just two days away (I’m leaving for NYC tomorrow so that I can start coverage bright and early Thursday morning, by the way), you might have thought that we were done seeing major companies announce exclusives for the show (I sure did). But it looks like there was one company left with a rabbit (or spider) in its hat: ThreeA Toys! For the first time ever, 3A Toys will have a NYCC Exclusive Marvel figure: the just-revealed 3A Snow Strike Black Widow figure!

NYCC 2017 Toys R Us Exclusives Marvel

I’ve been to New York Comic Con every year since, well… ever… and I can’t recall Toys R Us ever having a booth at the show—much less exclusives. But I suppose there’s a first time for everything, and that time is now! With just one week to go to NYCC 2017, Toys R Us has announced an exclusive line of Marvel Fan Girls dolls to accompany their Funko Baby Groot with Button POP Vinyl, Armored Black Panther Tsum Tsum and 12″ Lockjaw Plush to the show!

Spider-Man Winter Gear Kotobukiya NYCC 2017 Exclusive ARTFX Statue

Remember that one legendary issue of the Amazing Spider-Man (#615) that came out way back in 2009, wherein Spidey briefly wore earmuffs and a hat and scarf…? Yeah–neither do I. But Kotobukiya sure does, apparently, and in honor of that 8-year old issue, they’re bringing us what just may be the most bizarre Koto exclusive figure/statue ever made: the NYCC 2017 Exclusive Kotobukiya Spider-Man Winter Gear ARTFX+ statue!
