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?!

Funko X-Men Mystery Minis Case Layouts: Hot Topic! Gamestop!

Funko Cable Kitty Pryde Mystery Mini X-Men Exclusives

In my grumpy old age, I don’t have the fervor for pulling blind boxes I did when I was a kid (in college). So I wasn’t enthusiastic when it was announced there were going to be six exclusive Funko X-Men Mystery Minis figures mixed in the Gamestop and Hot Topic assortments. Not wanting to buy 3 cases to complete my set, I decided to test case layouts submitted by readers. Six blind boxes later, my set is complete and the X-Men Mystery Mini case layouts are confirmed…

X-Men Marvel Legends Havok Figure Review & Photos

Close-Up of X-Men Legends Havok 6" Figure

It’s taken close to half a year, but it looks like supply is finally fully catching up to demand on the inaugural X-Men Marvel Legends wave! Marvel Legends Deadpool has been restocked online at MSRP throughout the past week and is finally becoming common, but today’s review subject is a figure a little… less… hard to find! He’s filling the shelves of most retail stores and can be bought online for about 11 bucks flat, but is the Marvel Legends Havok figure really all that bad…?

Marvel Legends X-Men Kitty Pryde 6″ Figure Review & Photos

Marvel Legends 2016 Kitty Pryde and Lockheed Figures

Though it’s been lauded as perhaps the single best Hasbro Marvel Legends wave in history, even the strongest series is going to have its own weakest figures. And in the case of the 2016 Marvel Legends X-Men series, Kitty Pryde is definitely that weak link, in my opinion. Marvel Legends Kitty Pryde is available online now for 11 bucks, and like her or not, you’re going to need her to complete two different Build-A-Figures…

Previously I’ve reviewed every single 2016 Marvel Legends Build-A-Figure released this year–save one–so I might as well complete the set!

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?
