NYCC 2017 Bandai Ogre Hulk Manga Realization Figure

As anticipated, Bandai Tamashii Nations brought along their four previously-solicited Marvel Manga Realization Samurai figures to New York Comic Con 2017 (even the poor Samurai Spider-Man that’s 40% off online). What was not anticipated—at all—however, was that Bandai would be bringing “Approval Pending” designs of five more characters for the Manga Realization line: including Hulk, Wolverine, Deadpool and more!

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!

It was only a matter of “when”, not “if”, Sideshow Collectibles would get around to their own Gwen Stacy Spider-Woman. And now, we know exactly when we can order her—the Sideshow EXCLUSIVE Spider-Gwen statue is now up for order!

Sideshow Black Cat Premium Format Statue Released & Photos!

Sideshow Collectibles Black Cat Premium Format Figure Review

Last Halloween, Sideshow Collectibles hit us up with a totally unannounced addition to their Spider-Man series: a new Premium Format Black Cat statue in her modern attire. For whatever reason–maybe due to not being shown for months prior to the pre-order, maybe due to having never appeared in movies, or maybe due to being the modern incarnation–that Black Cat pre-order didn’t generate a whole lot of hype. But now that it’s been released 10 months later, and the exclusive Black Cat Premium Format Figure is still available in low-stock, let’s take a look and see how Felicia turned out…
