Marvel vs. Capcom Infinite Pixel Pals Review

Iron Studios Guardians of the Galaxy vs. Obelisk Statues!

Iron Studios Guardians of the Galaxy vs. The Obelisk Statues

Last month, Iron Studios got my attention when they showed off their really neat comic-based Spider-Man and friends on bridge Battle Diorama Series statues. This month, Iron Studios apparently wants more than just my attention–they want my money. And the easiest way to get it out of me is the same as always–with the Guardians of the Galaxy! It’s an iconic scene I never expected to see made in statue form–the Iron Studios Guardians of the Galaxy vs. The Obelisk statues are now up for order!

Marvel Legends Rocket Raccoon & Groot Review & Photos GOTG 2

Marvel Legends Rocket Raccoon & Groot Review

It’s a national holiday today in the United States, and that means no new product reveals or pre-orders–and the perfect time for a new figure review! To my embarrassment, there’s 1.5 members of the Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 team that I still haven’t taken a look at the new Marvel Legends for yet, so today’s a good day to fill that void! They’re finally steadily available online for below retail price–it’s Guardians of the Galaxy Marvel Legends Rocket Raccoon & Groot!

Marvel Legends Guardians of the Galaxy Wave 2 Up for Order!

Marvel Legends Guardians of the Galaxy Wave 2 Figures Packaged

When some retailers in the United States started receiving stock of Marvel Legends Guardians of the Galaxy Wave 2 cases last week, the writing was on the wall that Hasbro would allow online retailers to take pre-orders for the series soon. Initially I heard the rumor that pre-orders would open May 8th, but obviously that didn’t pan out. But hey, two days later is better than two months later, right? The Marvel Legends Guardians of the Galaxy Mantis Series is now up for order online!

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!

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!

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…

2014 Marvel Legends Guardians of the Galaxy Series Reissued?

Guardians of the Galaxy Rocket Raccoon Marvel Legends Figure Reissue

Strange store reports started cropping up over the course of the past week of collectors finding the original 2014 Marvel Legends Guardians of the Galaxy Series figures at their local Target stores. Three year old Hasbro figures suddenly hitting stores again nationwide is a pretty bizarre turn of events, so I went to investigate today–and can confirm that fresh cases of the GOTG Marvel Legends 2014 series are indeed being stocked once again…

Toy Fair: Marvel Legends Guardians of the Galaxy Wave 2 2017!

Marvel Legends Mantis Build-A-Figure Close-Up

I’m not one to put any stock in leaked UPC lists, but when the Hasbro Marvel Legends Ex Nihilo figure was announced last night, that pretty much sealed the deal that the list of 2017 Marvel Legends Guardians of the Galaxy Wave 2 figures that had been circulating for weeks was the real deal and not just a rumor. And at the Hasbro Brand Toy Fair 2017 event today, we got official confirmation and also our first look at the rest of GOTG Marvel Legends Wave 2–including Nebula, Baby Groot and the Mantis Build-A-Figure!

Skottie Young Marvel Babies Animated Rocket & Groot Statue!

Gentle Giant Marvel Animated Groot and Rocket Raccoon Statue Close-Up

Today looks to be a quiet start to another week of Marvel Toy News, so let’s step back and take a look at an item that was revealed last week that’s pretty near and dear to my heart. With the Skottie Young Magneto that debuted at SDCC 2016 being the only Marvel Babies statue Gentle Giant hadn’t put up for sale yet, most people (including me) expected Mags to be the next pre-order in the line. But nope! The next character is actually two characters: the Marvel Animated Groot & Rocket Raccoon statue is now up for order!

Whereas the first GOTG movie had only one store exclusive when it launched, Funko is quintupling that number for Guardians of the Galaxy 2, with five exclusives including a Target Exclusive super-sized Baby Groot POP!

Now that we’re officially into 2017, I knew it was only going to be a matter of time until Funko flooded us with Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 merch. Well, the dam has officially burst, and man has Funko ever got a lot of GOTG 2 goodness coming our way!
