We knew–without question–that a Marvel Legends Lady Thor figure was on the way after Hasbro teased us with a photo of her at the 2017 Toy Fair. We just didn’t know when or where… until photos of the SDCC 2017 Exclusive Marvel Legends Battle for Asgard set popped up online a few weeks back. But hey, while it’s far too late to act genuinely surprised now, at least we can legit ogle these hi-res photos of Marvel Legends Malekith, Ulik, Bor, Odinson and Jane Foster Thor, right?Continue Reading →
Thor, thou hast finally hit the big time with thine own LEGO set! For the first time ever, The LEGO Group (TLG) is releasing movie sets to coincide with the release of a Thor movie–this fall’s “Thor Ragnarok” movie! The builds themselves don’t look that grandiose, but that’s not what people really buy LEGO Marvel sets for. Get ready for the first-ever minifigures of Gladiator Hulk, Thor with a helmet, and even Hela!Continue Reading →
I’ve been so absorbed for the fast few months with preparing for, attending and recovering from the awesomeness that was Star Wars Celebration Orlando 2017, that I sort of forgot that that San Diego Comic-Con 2017 was less than three months away! But luckily, while I plum forgot one of the biggest shows of the year for toy manufacturers, Hasbro has not–the SDCC 2017 Exclusive Marvel Legends set has now been revealed, featuring Lady Thor, Malekith, Ulik and more!Continue Reading →

Getting $15 off and free shipping for placing a pre-order now made ordering this 12″ Psylocke statue a no-brainer day one pre-order for me!Continue Reading →
Here I thought that I had discussed all of the new Marvel Legends shown in my New York Toy Fair 2017 coverage last weekend, when I flipped through my photos today and realized I never talked about a trio that didn’t debut at the show. Not only did Hasbro bring the soon-to-be-shipping Marvel Legends 12″ Deadpool to show off at Toy Fair, but they also had the recently-revealed 12″ Thor and 14.5″ Hulk there. And I have to say, both these figures look a lot better than I expected in person…Continue Reading →
For the past year-plus, Sideshow Collectibles has been hitting female statues out of the ballpark one after the next. And though she’s not necessarily a favorite of longtime classic comic book readers, the high-profile headliner superheroine Sideshow has going up for sale today looks like another home run to me: the Sideshow Collectibles Lady Thor Premium Format Figure statue is now up for order!Continue Reading →
I’m just going to come right out and say it: “CALLED IT!” I’ve been saying since last year that I was all but certain that the Hasbro Marvel Legends Prop Replicas line would continue in 2017 with a Star-Lord Helmet and a Thor Mjolnir Hammer prop replica, so I felt pretty gratified this morning when I got the long-awaited E-Mail in my inbox confirming just that: the Marvel Legends Mjolnir and Star-Lord Helmet prop replicas are now up for order!Continue Reading →
While we’ve seen a multitude of figures and toys already for this year’s Spider-Man Homecoming and Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 movies, there’s another pair of characters starring in a movie that have been rather conspicuous by their absence in toy form this year… until now! Looks like we can put the speculation about the Hasbro Marvel Legends 12″ figures series ending to rest, because 12″ Marvel Legends Hulk and Thor have now been revealed!Continue Reading →
The postal service is infuriatingly slow delivering my latest Diamond Select Toys figure (grumble grumble), so that meant I had to take a field trip down to the mall this week to at least take packaged photos of the first Marvel Select figure to arrive this year! He may not be in the upper-echelon of most beloved Marvel villains, but I’ve seen firsthand now just how drop-dead gorgeous and amazing this Marvel Select Destroyer Odin figure is…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 →
Over the weekend I talked about a trio of new Kotobukiya Marvel statues that unexpectedly debuted at SDCC 2016 last week–but I didn’t talk about the statues we were expecting to see that were revealed there. Such is the case with a piece I was skeptical about–right up until I saw it. It might be one of the very best (and most classy) additions to the Marvel Bishoujo line yet: the 1/7 Kotobukiya Lady Thor Bishoujo statue is now up for order!Continue Reading →
When Diamond Select Toys teased a new “big” Marvel Select figure coming up this year, I heard a huge range of characters guessed, with some of the most popular choices being Apocalypse and Abomination.
But the latest “big daddy” Marvel Select figure actually turns out to actually be a real “big daddy”–the Marvel Select Odin the Destroyer figure is now up for order! And this figure is a monster…Continue Reading →
I heard rumblings a couple weeks ago during Toy Fair that the 2016 Marvel Legends Comic Packs two-packs had landed in the United States, and I’ve been in hot pursuit ever since.
Today, I finally tracked them down at retail–including the hotly-awaited Lady Thor and Sam Wilson Captain America action figures. But while there’s lots to love here, I know some collectors will be disappointed…Continue Reading →
When you’re the biggest female breakout star Marvel has had in many years, you don’t have to wait long for your first statue to be released! This weekend at the 2016 Winter Wonder Festival, the Kotobukiya Spider-Gwen Bishoujo statue was fully revealed–including an unmasked Gwen Stacy head!
But Gwen’s not coming alone–Kotobukiya Bishoujo Loki (!!!) and Lady Thor statues were also announced at the event!Continue Reading →
While I thought it was going to be a quiet week due to that “Star Wars” thing going around, it turns out that we’re actually getting bombarded with fresh Marvel toy news! And one of the new items announced regards one of the hottest characters of the past two years: Lady Thor!
Diamond Select Toys drew first blood with their Lady Thor Minimates figure earlier this year, and now they’re turning to the statue front: the Lady Thor Femme Fatales statue is now up for order!Continue Reading →
