Apparently I must have missed some memos this last week while I’ve been drowning in the tsunami of New York Toy Fair 2017 news and photos, because Sideshow Collectibles was able to launch a figure this afternoon that I had no idea was ready to be solicited! Just one week after their first Marvel sixth scale figure since 2015 went up for order, there is another: the Sideshow Exclusive Ghost Rider sixth scale figure is now up for order!Continue Reading →
I’m expecting to see tons of surprise announcements of new Marvel toys and collectibles at New York Toy Fair 2017 this weekend (and I’ll be in New York City all weekend long reporting in), but there’s a quasi-surprise this week already! I wasn’t entirely sure that the Sideshow Collectibles Marvel Sixth Scale figure line was legit going to continue (there hasn’t been a new figure order since 2015), but the Sideshow Exclusive Daredevil figure is now up for order!Continue Reading →
To put it mildly, the ThreeA Toys Marvel figures released up until now have not been for everyone. Many collectors just couldn’t get past the duck feet and weird designs choices made for several of the characters thus far. But for those who wouldn’t stand the previous figures, 3A Toys has something totally different-looking (but definitely still unique) lined up: the ThreeA Black Widow Sixth Scale figure goes up for order later this month!Continue Reading →
The day that Netflix Daredevil fans have been waiting for has finally arrived: highly-detailed, show-accurate Netflix Daredevil figures are on the way! No, they’re not coming in the Hasbro Marvel Legends 6″ line just yet–they’re going to be a little bit bigger (and a whole lot more expensive).
Coming our way soon: Hot Toys Netflix Daredevil sixth scale figures! And Daredevil’s not coming alone–he’s bringing Hot Toys Punisher along for the ride!Continue Reading →
A lot of collectors were a wee bit annoyed when Hasbro renamed the Marvel Universe scale figures to 4″ “Marvel Legends” to kick off 2016, due to the confusion one name for multiple scales wold cause. Well, life is about to get a whole lot tougher for those folks, as Hasbro is announcing a new 12″ Mavel Legends scale this weekend as part of the New York Toy Fair 2015 festivities! And of course, the first to the party are everyone’s favorites: Captain America and Iron Man!Continue Reading →
We’re less than two days away from all eyes in the toy collecting world turning toward New York City, where the New York Toy Fair 2016 will begin this Saturday, February 13th! But that’s two days from now, and there’s a pretty big event for us Marvel fans happening one day from now: the opening of the long-awaited and longer-rumored Deadpool movie! And what better way to celebrate it than with a chance to win a free Sideshow Deadpool sixth scale figure?! Want to know how? Read on…Continue Reading →
Well, we knew this day would come, and it finally has. After debuting their first three Marvel 1/6th scale figures in July 2014, finally–finally–all three Sideshow Marvel Comics sixth scale figures will have gone up for order as of today.
Deadpool arrived in the fall and Punisher was solicited back in October–and now, the circle is complete! The homicidal-looking Berserker Rage-enthralled Sideshow Exclusive Wolverine Sixth Scale figure is now up for order!Continue Reading →
With the upcoming releases of Maria Hill, Quicksilver and Drax the Destroyer, I had it in my head that Hot Toys had now covered virtually every single base when it came to heroic characters in the Hot Toys Marvel sixth scale figure line. But somehow, some way, I was overlooking the single most ubiquitous man in all of Marvel movie-dom. But thankfully, Hot Toys did not overlook the icon himself, with more Marvel movie appearances than any other actor in history: the Hot Toys Stan Lee sixth scale figure is now available for order!Continue Reading →
The vintage Mattel Marvel Secret Wars toy line in the 1980’s was one of the earliest–and most bizarre–comic/toy tie-ins ever. Mattel offered to produce Marvel figures–but only if Marvel published a tie-in comic. And then Mattel proceeded to produce a bunch of characters not in the Secret Wars comic at all. Cool, huh? And now we can celebrate this bit of oddball trivia once again with another character not in the original comic, as the Gentle Giant Secret Wars Daredevil Jumbo figure is now up for order!Continue Reading →
Before we prepare to see a plethora of never-before-seen Marvel toys and collectibles at New York Comic Con 2015 this week, how about a blast from the distant past…? In Summer 2014, Sideshow Collectibles announced that they had acquired the license to produce Marvel Comics sixth scale figures. They showed off Wolverine, Deadpool and the Punisher along with the announcement, but only Deadpool ever went up for sale… until now! The Sideshow Exclusive Punisher sixth scale figure is now up for order!Continue Reading →
Hot Toys has managed to take us totally off-guard with many surprise announcements over the course of this year. But their latest product reveal has been, well… not exactly a closely-guarded secret. Starting at San Diego Comic Con 2014 and continuing throughout the summer and fall, Hot Toys has been “sneakily” leaving an Iron Man 3 Hot Rod Iron Man Hot Toys figure in the display cases at most of the events that they’ve exhibited at. I guess there was always the slight possibility that this figure was just on display to taunt us with what we cannot have–but no more: The exclusive Hot Toys Hot Rod Iron Man Die-Cast figure is now up for order!Continue Reading →
Yesterday, Gentle Giant Ltd. unexpectedly announced a new line of 1/6th scale Jumbo Marvel Secret Wars action figures are on the way in 2015. That was a surprise announcement in and of itself, but I was even less prepared for the primarily negative response I’ve heard from collectors about the line and its price. The first figure in the line, the 12″ Jumbo Secret Wars Black Costume Spider-Man is now up for order–but is he worth 80 to 90 bucks? Here’s my thoughts…Continue Reading →
I really thought that I had well and truly scoured the floor at New York Comic Con 2014 for every major Marvel collectible of interest at the show, but it seems that somehow, some way, I missed out on seeing the prototype of the 3A Toys Dr. Doom figure displayed at the show. I still have no clue where the ThreeA Doom was even on display at (as 3A Toys didn’t have a booth at the show), but it matters not anymore: the official photos have been revealed and the ThreeA Toys Dr. Doom sixth scale figure and its variants go up for order later this week!Continue Reading →
Well, this is new. We’ve learned about Marvel Hot Toys Movie Masterpiece Series sixth scale figures in a variety of ways before, but I am reasonably sure that this is the first time a new Hot Toys Marvel figure has ever been revealed via… small sticker on the front of a Japanese Blu-Ray (does that make the X-Men Days of Future Past Blu-Ray a must for Hot Toys collectors? I wonder…). The Hot Toys X-Men Days of Future license was announced way back in 2013, and it looks like in 2015 Hot Toys may actually have a figure lined up for us–the Hot Toys Days of Future Past Wolverine figure!Continue Reading →
It used to be that you could count on any new Marvel line of toys or collectibles beginning with one of the “go to” headliner characters of Spider-Man, Wolverine, Captain America or Iron Man.
Things have clearly changed a little bit, as the hottest character at Marvel is a little bit less heroic (and a whole lot more insane!) and Sideshow is planning to capitalize! The Sideshow exclusive Deadpool sixth scale figure is now up for order!Continue Reading →
