I apologize for the lack of updates yesterday, as a combination of a ton of appointments at the New York Toy Fair 2017, massive server downtime because of the heavy traffic generated by the event and traveling back to New England from New York City with a massive migraine limited my posting capabilities temporarily. But I’m home now and ready to tackle the 2017 Toy Fair in some depth–beginning with coverage of some figures folks have been really and truly waiting for: the Marvel Select Spider-Gwen and Netflix Daredevil figures have now been revealed!Continue Reading →
When Funko debuted their DC Rock Candy vinyl figures of Harley Quinn and Batgirl and such way back at New York Toy Fair 2016 in February, I wondered whether or not the line would be expanding to cover Marvel females as well. It took eight months, but on the eve of NYCC 2016, we finally have an answer: “Yes!” The first six Funko Marvel Rock Candy figures are now up for order, including Spider-Gwen, Lady Thor, She-Hulk and more!Continue Reading →
Back at SDCC 2016, Kotobukiya revealed the early prototype of the upcoming Agent Venom ARTFX+ statue, leading us to believe he’d be next in the Spider-Man series. But instead, Koto has thrown us a real curveball this week with perhaps the most-anticipated character in the wave–the Kotobukiya Spider-Gwen ARTFX+ Statue is now up for order! Gwen is looking mighty fine (as always), but she also comes with an unexpected price increase…Continue Reading →

And a few missing Civil War characters will finally arrive as well…Continue Reading →
The wait is almost over, and the biggest comic book and collectibles event of 2016 is almost here: San Diego Comic-Con 2016 begins just two weeks from tomorrow! At this point, we’ve known most of the exclusive for the event for at least a week… but not all of them! Gentle Giant Ltd. had been holding their cards pretty close to their vest, but their trio of Marvel SDCC 2016 Exclusives now stands revealed: an Animated Rocket Raccoon statue, a Secret Wars Spider-Gwen Micro-Bobbles, and… some crazy-colored Deadpools including neon green Deadpool?!Continue Reading →
Marvel has begun giving female characters their rightful spotlight in recent years, so it seems only right that that focus has moved to on now to the Funko Marvel Collector Corps Women of Power box!

Read on for my Women of Power Collector Corps box spoilers, review and unboxing photos…Continue Reading →
We got our first official look at the Amazing Spider-Man statue kicking off the Kotobukiya Spider-Man ARTFX+ Series of statues yesterday, but at the time Koto hadn’t revealed the full lineup.
Luckily, we’re not going to have to speculate any more: the full lineup including Spider-Man 2099, Spider-Gwen, Venom, Miles Morales Spider-Man, Carnage and more has now been revealed!Continue Reading →
Though it’s just two months now until San Diego Comic-Con 2016, it’s been all quite in the Marvel SDCC 2016 exclusives front–at least, until now! Diamond Select Toys has officially announced their SDCC Exclusives for the show, and there are a lot of them! Perhaps the most exciting ones, though, are a trio of women statues from the affordably-priced PVC statue lines: SDCC Unmasked Spider-Gwen, Mohawk Captain Marvel and white Emma Frost are now up for order!Continue Reading →
I had to look it up to make sure, but it’s been over half a week since new exclusive Funko Marvel POP Vinyls were revealed. And as far as the King of Exclusives is concerned, that’s far too long!

With C2E2 2016 in Chicago this weekend occurring just slightly over a month after the New York Toy Fair 2016, I didn’t expect to see any new collectibles revealed at the show.
