Marvel Legends Morbius 3.75″ Figure Review & Photos

Marvel Legends Morbius 3.75" Action Figure

I had been planning on today’s Marvel Legends review being the new 6″ Kamala Khan Ms. Marvel figure, but those plans went off the rails when Kamala’s arm peg broke in half at the elbow. And so, while I hunt for a Ms. Marvel replacement, the former Marvel Universe 3.75″ line gets the spotlight instead tonight! The 4″ Marvel Legends Morbius is currently marked down to $3 online from his $12.99 MSRP, but is this figure really all that bad…?

Earlier this month, my future wallet had a heart attack when it was announced at Tokyo Comic Con 2016 that Prime 1 Studio would be creating 1/4 Marvel statues, starting with Spider-Man 2099 and Anti-Venom. While I hoped to have a good long time to save up before the pre-order, it looks like that’s just not to be. Not only have the glorious official photos been posted, but Prime 1 Studio has confirmed it–the Sideshow Exclusive Prime 1 Spider-Man 2099 Statue is now up for order!

2017 Marvel Legends Sandman Build-A-Figure Review

Hasbro Sandman Legends Figure Killing Spider-Man

It doesn’t happen every year, but this winter we’ve been lucky enough for some stores to start receiving the first wave of 2017 Marvel Legends figures before the new year even rolls around! And since I’ve been so blessed as to track down every figure in the wave early, I’d be remiss if I didn’t devote some time to a review of the Build-A-Figure before the holidays. And so, though he isn’t the first Marvel Legends Sandman figure ever, the Sandman Build-A-Figure is definitely the best…

2017 Marvel Legends Green Goblin Review & Photos

Marvel Legends 2017 Green Goblin 6" Figure Review

When Hasbro tooled up new parts for the Hobgoblin this summer, the writing was on the wall that a new 6″ Green Goblin would be flying in before too long. And while nobody could have foreseen Dreadknight using some of the newly-developed tooling himself first, Spider-Man’s greatest villain has now arrived! The 2017 Marvel Legends Green Goblin figure is now hitting online and in some stores, and this new iteration is a definite home run for Hasbro…

Marvel Legends Shocker Review 2017 Sandman Series

Marvel Legends Shocker Review

I think it’s a pretty good testament to how wildly successfully the Marvel Legends 6″ line has been the past few years–and how much Hasbro has been spoiling us–that the Shocker has actually risen to the top of many fans’ wish lists. He’s arriving a bit later than the summer date we all expected, but the Marvel Legends Shocker figure has been selling out online constantly for almost two weeks now! But I’m just not as excited about this figure as I wanted to be…

Spider-Man 2099 Marvel Legends 2017 Figure

I kicked off my Marvel Legends 2017 reviews by discussing one of the most classic of classic Spider-Man villains–the Jackal! So for my second review, let’s switch things up and go to the other end of the spectrum entirely with the newest version of a Spidey that’s not even Peter Parker. He’s been getting restocked and selling out online a couple times a day every day for a week now, and with good reason–it’s the all-awesome, All-New Spider-Man 2099 Marvel Legends figure!

2017 Marvel Legends The Jackal vs. Spider-Man

Who’s green and fuzzy and responsible for the creation of all the most beloved clones in the history of Marvel Comics…? That’s right–it’s Professor Miles Warren himself, the Jackal! From Ben Reilly to Gwen Stacy to Kaine, the Jackal has cloned all the greats and functioned as the catalyst for the Spider-Man Clone Saga, Maximum Clonage, Dead No More and more!

Kaiyodo Revoltech Venom Figure Revealed & Photos!

kaiyodo-revoltech-venom-action-figure-2017

Kaiyodo has definitely gotten off to a hot start with their Amazing Yamaguchi Revoltech Marvel lineup, with both their super-fun Revoltech Deadpool and Spider-Man figures being quick sell outs overseas (though Amazon still has a few Deadpools left). And now the import-only 6″ figure line is about to get its first true villain–and he’s pretty monstrous, that’s for sure! At this week’s Miyazawa Model Exhibition Fall 2016 event, the long-teased Revoltech Venom figure finally made his debut!

I hadn’t planned on moving Marvel Toy News to a new (expensive) high-powered server this year, but my hosting company had other ideas, and so… anyway, welcome back! I’ve got a number of things to catch up in this week (including my first Spider-Man Marvel Legends 2017 figure reviews!), but first, let’s look at a 6″ Spidey of a different sort–the long-awaited Mezco ONE:12 Collective Spider-Man figure is now up for order!

Spider-Man Marvel Legends Sandman Series Figures Packaged

When the Sandman Series of Spider-Man Marvel Legends 2017 figures appeared outta nowhere yesterday, I had a feeling we’d be seeing Hasbro allow pre-order solicitations from online retailers within days. And as anticipated, that’s exactly what has occurred–the 6″ Spider-Man Legends Sandman Series is now up for pre-order online and expected to start shipping within the next few weeks!

Ordinarily I wouldn’t write up a whole article just because of a couple new low-resolution photos surfacing of a whole series of figures that we already know about, but since we’re in a little bit of a Marvel Legends news drought right now–and these particular low-res photos reveal some details we weren’t previously privy to–I think I need to make an exception! Start saving now–the Marvel Legends 2017 Spider-Man Wave 1 Sandman Series has now started to be found!

banpresto-spider-man-creatorxcreator-statue

Banpresto has long been one of my favorite international toy manufacturers because of the huge variety of characters and sizes of low-priced anime figures that they produce. One of their most recent successful series is the Creator×Creator line, which has been composed entirely of anime characters… until now! Coming in Spring 2017, Banpresto goes Marvel with the Creator X Creator Spider-Man figure!
