The inevitable domination of the world by Funko's Pop figures is all but a foregone conclusion at this point. You can't hope to stop them, you can merely hope to contain the power they hold over the masses. Sadly, we won't be able to help stave off the eventuality of it all because we're too addicted to collecting the cute little blighters.
That's where you come in. We're going to be giving away 10 different comic book Funko Pop figures over Twitter for the next few weeks. Sure that means more Funko figures out in the wild, spreading like wildfire. It's a risk we're willing to take however, just to make our loyal readers happy.
We've already seen the rest of Bandai's planned offerings from Avengers: Age of Ultron, and the Hulkbuster was teased not that long ago. Now we've got our first official look at the magnificent beast, and it is glorious. And expensive.
There are currently very few ways to get a standalone Hulkbuster action figure, and there are even fewer ways to get one at a reasonable price. While the price point on the upcoming SH Figuarts Hulkbuster is likely to turn many of you away, it is still quite a bit cheaper than the Hot Toys version. It'll also be just a tad bit more expensive than trying to hunt down all the figures in Hasbro's Hulkbuster BAF wave coming this summer.
Didn't get your hands on one of Mezco's One:12 Collective Dark Knight Returns Batman figures the first time around? Do you really love that moment from the book where Batman takes on the Mutant Leader in the mud pit and loses horribly? Good, because Mezco's upcoming summer convention exclusive is a pretty bogue box set commemorating the fracas.
Mezco kicked off its One:12 Collective series this year with a standard Dark Knight Returns Batman, available in a variety of outfits from the seminal comic series. All of them quickly sold out. At Toy Fair, the company teased the Mutant Leader as one of its next figures (as well as a sick Judge Dredd we're eagerly awaiting) in the One:12 Collective, but were vague about its potential release date. Now we know why.
Finally, after what seemed like an impossible wait, Kotobukiya's Black Canary Bishoujo is really happening. Though the statue has had its share of development issues, Koto has been teasing this final iteration of the anticipated Black Canary for a few months now, and is actually on track to deliver her before the end of the year.
While it will be nice to finally be able to complete the Birds of Prey collection, Dinah Lance is missing a little something compared to her teammates. As you can see in the images, Black Canary's base is much more simplified stand, and lacks the gargoyle base like the rest of the Birds of Prey.
In the year 3085, four teenagers travel time and space saving the universe one planet at a time. Thanks to ThreeA, in the year 2015, you'll be able to bring these little Bravest Warriors home.
As part of a collaboration with Frederator, ThreeA will be releasing the cast of Bravest Warriors as sixth-scale action figures this year. The series kicks off with bestest of friends, Chris Kirkman and Beth Tezuka, each captured in their full animated personas. At sixth-scale, Chris will come in at a sizeable 11.9" tall (mostly due to the splendiferous do), and Beth will arrive at just a hair under 10.5" in height.
While we've been seeing the core team's new Hot Toys incarnations over the course of the past few months, Vision is the first new Avenger we've been deemed worthy enough to get a look at. He's also the perfect example of how ideas are sometimes better as a concept than in execution.
Beware, faithful readers, there be some light spoilers for Avengers: Age of Ultron in the images.
Before the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles had been fully fleshed out, they were nothing more than an idea on a napkin. One simple idea on a piece of serviette in a bar launched a franchise and brand that's still going strong today. To pay homage to Kevin Eastman's original drawing of his and Peter Laird's creation, Mondo is bringing that original concept art to life in a limited edition action figure known simply as The First Turtle.
If you fancy yourself a fan of Mark Millar, Dave Johnson and Killian Plunkett's Superman: Red Son, or you know, socialism in general, then Sideshow's newest premium format figure collection just might be the one you're looking for.
Ever wanted to just rip open every single blind packaged figure in a box? We sure have. This week, our desire reached critical mass, and we splurged on box of Funko's Avengers: Age of Ultron Mystery Minis to see if we could get the whole set.
