What’s that? You thought Funko was done with all of their Marvel vinyl figure announcements for 2016…? Yeah–so did I! But there was a certain berserker-raging Canuck who was conspicuous by his absence from all of those previous announcements–but he’s sure not absent anymore! Coming our way this winter–three new Funko Wolverine POP Vinyls and three new Wolverine Dorbz are now up for order, including Logan, Weapon X, and even Hot Topic exclusive variants!

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. And though today’s subject was rare and expensive on the aftermarket for a few months, the X-Men Legends Wolverine figure is now available for way below retail price online! 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?

For reasons most of us are aware of, the last years have been rather quiet for X-Men toys. But the world, it is a-changin’!

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!

close-up-of-wolverine-play-arts-kai-figure

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…

SDCC 2016 Marvel Legends X-23 Wolverine Figure

While the Marvel Legends 6″ line is definitely Hasbro’s marquee superhero product line these days, that doesn’t mean that Hasbro has left the Marvel Universe/Marvel Legends 4″ collectors out to dry!

SDCC 2016: Hasbro Marvel Legends 4″ Figures! X-23! Groot!

SDCC 2016 Marvel Legends Wolverine X-23 Figure

Day One of San Diego Comic-Con 2016 is underway! Hasbro is still keeping the bulk of their major Marvel Legends announcements under wraps until the SDCC Hasbro Marvel panel, but they’ve still shown off a healthy number of upcoming, never-before-seen figures during the first day of the convention as well. Among these showings are eleven new Marvel Legends 4″ figures, which happen to include a despot Hulk, a living tree, an anthropomorphic raccoon and yes–even the world’s best squirrel mercenary, Squirrel Pool!

SDCC 2016: Play Arts Kai Deadpool & Wolverine Figures!

Play Arts Kai Wolverine Figure

Given the rampant bootlegging that went on with the Square-Enix Play Arts Kai Marvel figures line and the fact that a new (non-repaint) figure hasn’t been announced for the line in over a year now, I really thought the Play Arts Kai Marvel Variant line was done for. But things are not always as they appear, and Square-Enix in fact brought along two major all-new figures to show off at San Diego Comic-Con 2016: Play Arts Kai Deadpool and Wolverine!

Marvel Legends Deadpool Figure Packaged

Even though cases of this summer’s Hasbro Marvel Legends X-Men Series of 6″ figures went up for order a couple weeks ago containing all eight figures in the wave and no duplicates, some collectors only want to pick-and-choose some of their favorite X-Men without having to buy a whole case. As such, folks have been asking me pretty much every single day when Amazon would be listing these figures for individual purchase. Well, I finally have the answer so many of you have been waiting for: the X-Men Legends 6″ Series is now up for order on Amazon with free shipping!

Marvel Legends 2016 X-Men Series Wolverine! Juggernaut!

Wolverine Marvel Legends X-Men Juggernaut Build-A-Figure Series Packaged

I thought it was safe to go out to lunch for an hour today, secure in the assumption that there probably wouldn’t be any important Marvel toy news while I was out in the middle of the day. But you know what they say about “assumptions”, and that proved true again today! This afternoon, Hasbro dropped a bombshell by revealing not only the eighth and final figure in the 2016 Marvel Legends X-Men Series–Wolverine–but they also officially confirmed the long-rumored build-a-figure: Juggernaut!

Kotobukiya Wolverine ARTFX+ Statue Photos & Order Info!

Wolverine Kotobukiya ARTFX+ Statue Close-Up

At this time last year, I was still whining about how Kotobukiya hadn’t even brought unpainted prototypes of any of their Marvel Now X-Men ARTFX+ statues series to New York Toy Fair 2015. Barely over a year later, and that’s a complaint of the past! Not only did Koto have the entire range of ARTFX+ X-Men statues on display at New York Toy Fair 2016, but with this week’s pre-order, the cycle–and the team–are complete: the Kotobukiya Wolverine ARTFX+ statue is now up for order!
