Kotobukiya ARTFX+ Spider-Man Series Revealed

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!

Marvel Legends Spider-Man 2016 Wave 3 Photos! Electro!

Marvel Legends Electro Figure Space Venom Series

You wouldn’t know it based off the hype levels, but believe it or not, there’s actually a third series of Hasbro Marvel Legends 6″ figures that went up for order this week–a series that’s flying under the radar because it doesn’t contain any X-Men or movie Scarlet Witch figures. The Marvel Legends Spider-Man 2016 Wave 3 series isn’t even getting much of a push yet from Hasbro, but finally we’ve got some decent pictures of the wave from a Taiwanese event…

Marvel Legends Spider-Man Space Venom Series Info!

Marvel Legends 2016 Spider-Man Wave 2 Figures

Over the weekend, many sites published “Confidential”-stamped images of the next wave of Spider-Man Marvel Legends 2016 figures: the Space Venom Build-A-Figure series! Posting and discussing that manner of info goes against my policy, so I’ve stayed quiet about it for a few days.

But not anymore–! The clock has struck midnight on June 1st, and the Marvel Legends Spider-Man Space Venom Series is now up for order!

Marvel Legends Venom Review & Photos (Hasbro 2016)

Close-Up of 6" Marvel Legends Venom Figure with Tongue Out Head

Back before I got sidetracked with a tidal wave of Marvel toy news from New York Toy Fair 2016, I was reviewing the first waves of Marvel Legends 2016 figures.

But now that the news has subsided a bit, let’s get back to talking about this year’s first series of Spider-Man characters with a review of the Marvel Legends Venom! Venom is tough to find and selling for a couple bucks over MSRP on the aftermarket right now–is he worth the hunt?

2016 Marvel Legends Absorbing Man Series Up on Amazon!

Marvel Legends Spider-Man 2016 Jack O' Lantern Figure Packaged

Marvel Legends collectors were thrown a huge curve-ball yesterday, when the entire Red Onslaught Build-A-Figure wave (which, by the way, is called the “Red Skull” wave on the packaging) popped up for order on Amazon–despite the fact that they hadn’t even listed the Spider-Man Legends Absorbing Man wave yet that started hitting stores weeks ago! But it turns out the Captain America wave just happened to be posted first yesterday–the Spider-Man Legends Jack O’ Lantern, Morbius, Spider-Carnage and more are now available with free shipping!

Marvel Legends Hobgoblin Series Case Giveaway Contest!

2015 Marvel Legends Spider-Man 2099 Figures Packaged

2015 has been a downright incredible year for Marvel Legends collectors, no doubt about it. Hasbro released six full new waves of Marvel Legends 6″ figures this year, in addition to numerous exclusive releases. In total, over 50 new Marvel Legends action figures released this year! There’s just one problem with all this goodness: we’ve got to pay for it. But if you missed a few figures this year, you may be in luck–we’re teaming up with Entertainment Earth to give away an entire case of the Spider-Man Legends Hobgoblin Series!

Funko Carnage & Anti-Venom POP Vinyls Revealed & Photos!

Carnange Funko POP Vinyl Figure Packaged

Ordinarily, nothing on Earth would stop me from immediately talking about two newly-revealed Marvel Funko POP Vinyls–especially when one of those POPs happens to be among the most-requested characters ever for the line. But as it turns out, my being in the E.R. for 9 hours yesterday falls outside the realm of “ordinary”. Alas. Regardless, two sure-to-be best-sellers have now been revealed: the Funko Carnage and Anti-Venom POP Vinyls!

Venom Play Arts Kai Figure Photos Revealed!

Play Arts Kai Venom Variant Figure

The Marvel Play Arts Kai figure that got me the most excited at the New York Toy Fair 2015 Square-Enix booth was the one that actually wasn’t on display at all: it was the concept art for the Play Arts Kai Venom figure!

Well, we had to wait an extra four months to see it in plastic form, but the time is here: the first photos of the Venom Play Arts Kai Marvel Variant figure have now been revealed!

Spider-Man Marvel Legends Rhino Series Case Ratios & Pre-Order!

Marvel Legends 2015 Spider-Man Wave 3 Case Ratios

I’ve already talked about the Marvel Legends Ant-Man and Avengers figures that went up for pre-order this week, so it won’t shock anyone that it’s time to move on to the last known (but not last to be released) Marvel Legends 2015 series: the Marvel Legends Spider-Man Rhino Build-A-Figure Series is now up for pre-order! And believe it or not, none of the figures that comprise this series is named “Spider-Man”!

Marvel Candy Bowl Holders! Rocket Raccoon Venom Thor!

Rocket Raccoon Candy Bowl Holder

I mentioned in my review of the Jubilee Bishoujo statue yesterday that there was a first time for everything. Well, I guess today it’s time for another first, because I’m going to be discussing something that can probably only be considered a “toy” at all by the barest of margins. The latest Marvel statues (of a sort) come from Rubie’s Costume Company–and they actually serve a functional purpose! The Rocket Raccoon, Thor and Venom Candy Bowl Holders are now up for order!

Marvel Play Arts Kai Thor & Venom Figures Revealed!

2015 New York Toy Fair Marvel Play Arts Kai Thor Figure

Going into last week’s New York Toy Fair 2015, I thought we’d be lucky if Square-Enix just brought along a prototype of the second Marvel Play Arts Kai figure: Spider-Man.

But I underestimated Square-Enix. Not only did they have the finished Spidey on display at their booth, but also the third action figure in the lineup, Play Arts Kai Thor, and even concept art for the fourth figure: Play Arts Kai Venom!

Marvel Mashers Agent Venom Hobgoblin A-Bomb Released!

Marvel Masher Agent Venom Figure Packaged

Most of my attention this week has been focused squarely on topics such as the 2015 Marvel Legends figures and the quickly-exploding assortment of toys and collectibles based on this year’s Avengers: Age of Ultron movie. But now it’s time to step back and chat about a toy line that’s just a notch (or two) below Marvel Legends and Age of Ultron on the popularity scale: Marvel Super Hero Mashers! While we wait for the rest of the Hasbro 2015 Marvel figures to arrive, three new Mashers have already snuck up for sale online: Marvel Mashers Agent Venom, Hobgoblin and A-Bomb!

Marvel Legends 2015 Spider-Man Case Ratios & Pre-Order!

Marvel Legends Spider-Man 2015 Infinite Series 6 Inch Figures

It seems like only yesterday I was predicting a late release for the Spider-Man Marvel Legends 2015 figures (because it was), but in the last 24 hours the gears have finally begun moving on this year’s Marvel Legends train: the Marvel Legends Spider-Man 2015 figures are now up for order! The case ratios for the series aren’t bad, necessarily, but for once, I actually wanted Hasbro to heavy-pack a Spider-Man figure, and of course, they did not…

Ultimate Spider-Man Web Warriors Figures Released!

Ultimate Spider-Man Web Warriors Iron Spider Figure Hasbro 2015

All good things must come to an end, and the popular Ultimate Spider-Man cartoon series is arriving at its end. But in its final season, Ultimate Spider-Man is giving us a similar theme to Dan Slott’s masterpiece comic story-arc, Spider-Verse: Web Warriors! Multiple Spider-Men in the same place at the same time is like Hasbro’s dream, and as such, they’ve now released their latest series of Marvel action figures, including three iterations of Spider-Man… and a new Agent Venom!

Funko POP Vinyls Walgreens Exclusives: Venom! Punisher! Spider-Man 2099!

Funko POP Vinyls Black Suit Spider-Man and Spider-Man 2099

Last month, unpainted prototypes surfaced for a pair of previously unannounced Funko POP Vinyls figures that made me think that a Funko Spider-Man POP! Vinyls wave was in our near-future. And as it so happens, I was right–Funko officially announced a quartet of new 2015 Funko Marvel POP! Vinyls today! Of course, there is a little twist. See, this is going to be an exclusive wave of Funko POP Vinyls, and it’s not going to one of the usual retailer suspects like Target or Walmart: it’s the Walgreens Exclusive Funko Spider-Man 2099, Venom, Punisher, and Black Suit Spider-Man POP Vinyls!
