Marvel Legends X-Men 2017 Warlock Series Figures Released Early!

Marvel Legends Cyclops 2017 Figure Released

While the staff and photographers of the biggest Marvel toy news sites across the world (and me) were all congregating in New York City last weekend for New York Toy Fair 2017, a pretty crazy thing happened–and I mean crazy. Even though Hasbro still hasn’t allowed online retailers to even begin taking orders for this year’s X-Men Marvel Legends 2017 Warlock Series figures, the figures physically appeared (and disappeared) on store shelves at Target stores across the country–and shortly thereafter began flooding ebay at inflated prices…

Toyfair 2017 Mezco Netflix Daredevil ONE 12 Collective Figure

There may be a crazy snowstorm raging in New York City this morning, but the weather is no match for the power of a Mezco Toys Pre-Toy Fair event! And this year, for the first time ever, Mezco Toyz had a special treat for collectors (and bums like me who weren’t willing to fight the snow to go into New York City this morning): they live-streamed coverage of the event online! Sure, the camera was a little wobbly and the figures were out of focus, but who cares, because we got our very first look at Mezco ONE:12 Collective Wolverine, Iron Man, Doctor Strange and Netflix Daredevil!

Square-Enix Wolverine Play Arts Kai Figure Finally Up for Order!

Marvel Play Arts Kai Wolverine Figure Up for Order

Have you ever waited so long from when a figure was fully revealed to when it was available for order that when it actually did go up for sale, you thought you’d ordered it months ago…? Yeah–that’s how I feel about the Marvel Play Arts Kai Wolverine figure, which I could have swore I ordered at least 3 months ago. But I did not–at least, not then. That said–the Wolverine Play Arts Kai figure is now up for order–and this time, I really and truly have placed an order for him…

LEGO Marvel 2017 Mighty Micros Sets Released! Thanos!

lego-marvel-wolverine-vs-magneto-mighty-micros-box

Last year, The LEGO Group (TLG) burst onto the scene with the inaugural series of bizarre LEGO Marvel Mighty Micros sets featuring superheroes and villains battling it out… in race cars. Most of us crusty old folks agreed that the ludicrous line was destined to be a spectacular failure, crashing and burning as quickly as it came. So of course the line turned out to be a huge success, containing some of the best-selling LEGO Marvel sets ever. And now, the 2017 LEGO Marvel Mighty Micros are up for order, including Magneto, Wolverine, Scorpion, and… Thanos driving the Infinity Gauntlet Mobile?!

Marvel Gallery Statues: Old Man Logan Netflix Luke Cage & Iron Man!

marvel-gallery-old-man-logan-statue-diamond-select-toys

As soon as I saw the Diamond Select Toys Marvel Gallery statues line debut at New York Toy Fair 2016, I knew DST had a future hit on their hands. 9″ Marvel PVC statues with excellent paint applications and sculpting detail at a $45 MSRP seemed like a can’t-lose investment–and thus far, the line does look to be really taking off. And in 2017, look for it to become even more successful: Marvel Gallery Old Man Logan, Netflix Luke Cage and Iron Man statues are now up for order!

X-Men Marvel Legends Wolverine 6″ Figure Review & Photos

X-Men Marvel Legends Wolverine 6 Inch Figure Review

2016 has been relentless as far as Marvel Legends collecting goes, with more series being released by Hasbro in one year than ever before. But at last, we have a respite for collectors to pick up figures they missed during the year and for me to fill in reviews for figures I skipped.

If you haven’t nabbed this Brown Costume Wolverine Marvel Legends figure yet, you really should, because it’s a great one…

x-men-marvel-collector-corps-december-2016-box

When Funko made a huge deal out of the upcoming expansion of their X-Men toys range–including NYCC Exclusives and all-new packaging for the Dorbz series–I had a feeling the X-Men would finally appear in a certain subscription box sooner than later. And that intuition has borne fruit–the Funko Marvel Collector Corps X-Men Box is now up for order! What exclusives do I think might be in it?

NYCC 2016: Marvel Legends Old Man Logan & Shatterstar!

Marvel Legends 2017 Old Man Logan Figure

Alright, ‘fess up! Try as they might, Hasbro wasn’t able to keep the lid kept quite shut enough prior to SDCC 2016, and the lineup for the Marvel Legends 2017 X-Men wave ended up leaking out. So most of us knew the wave in advance of its announcement. But there were two figures on the leaked list who were absent at San Diego Comic-Con and still unconfirmed… until tonight! At the NYCC 2016 event tonight, Hasbro officially revealed the 2017 Marvel Legends Old Man Logan and Shatterstar figures!

It’s been a pretty slow Marvel toy news week (you know things are bad when I have to make posts about figures being on sale), but we did get at least one bite of appetitizing news–from across the world at the Tokyo Game Show 2016 (TGS), no less! When we last saw the Square-Enix Play Arts Kai Marvel line at SDCC 2016, there were two new unpainted figures on display. And this week in Tokyo, we got to see one of them painted: Play Arts Kai Wolverine!

Sideshow Exclusive Hulk vs. Wolverine Maquette Up for Order!

Sideshow Collectibles Hulk vs. Wolverine Maquette

Sideshow Collectibles didn’t unveil the plethora of new Marvel pieces at San Diego Comic-Con 2016 that they usually do, but the ones that they did show were some of the most jaw-dropping, gorgeous statues at the event. And one of those pieces was among the most impressive Wolverine (and Hulk!) statues that I’ve ever seen. I’ve been looking forward to it since July, but the day has arrived–the Sideshow Exclusive Hulk vs. Wolverine Maquette is now up for order! But all this magnificence comes at a monstrous price…
