Marvel Legends’ Latest Spider-Man Wave Builds a Dream of a Sandman Figure [Review]
When it comes to Marvel Legends, Spider-Man is about as bankable a hero you can find. As the centerpiece for numerous lines in a given year, Spider-Man's action figure waves have been among the most diverse and impressive in Hasbro's Marvel Legends catalog. The latest Spider-Man series, which features the Sandman as a build-a-figure, is a prime example of everything Hasbro has gotten right with Legends, even if it also includes a few figures that fail to impress.
Cheetah Bares Her Teeth in the Latest ‘Injustice 2′ Trailer
Teased in some earlier gameplay footage, Cheetah has finally gotten an Injustice 2 trailer all her own. The vicious attacks of the melee fighter look absolutely brutal, and her speed and agility will no doubt make her a bonafide threat. It's a shame she and Wonder Woman couldn't stay friends after all these years.
NECA’s Muhammad Ali vs Superman Captures the Greatest Fight of All Time Perfectly [Review]
He's young. He's handsome. He's fast. And he can't possibly be beat.

Now on the verge of the 40th anniversary of the one-shot comic Superman vs. Muhammad Ali, NECA has chosen to honor one of history's greatest boxing bouts with a deluxe action figure set that captures Neal Adams' style of the icons about as perfectly as possible.
You Can Save the Banner Bloodline With Mezco’s Old Man Logan
Just when you think you've seen everything Mezco had to offer --- thanks to visiting with them at Toy Fair just a few weeks ago --- the company goes ahead and sneaks a surprise out into the wild. Though Mezco's One:12 Collective already has quite a packed slate for 2017, it turns out there's still room in the schedule for an all-new Wolverine. Or should we say, an Old Man Logan.
Injustice 2’s Roster Reveals Heat Up With the Addition of Firestorm
Foregoing the deluge of single-character reveal trailers, this week NetherRealm Studios decided to give the popular WWE gaming channel the hot tip on the latest roster addition. After getting a bit of a tour of the studio behind the Mortal Kombat series, speaking with Ed Boon, and just clowning around like good wrestle-buddies do, Xavier, Kofi, Bayley, and Sasha get to spend a little time with Firestorm in Injustice 2.
Mets Announce Thor Syndergaard Bobblehead, But Other MLB Teams Have You Covered Too
Since debuting with the New York Mets in 2015, pitcher Noah Syndergaard has become a fan-favorite in the Big Apple. As one of the most awe-inspiring aces pitching in Major League Baseball today, Syndergaard was quick to establish a memorable persona. That was doubly helped when a photo of him working out dressed like Thor made the rounds. The flowing blonde locks, the Norwegian name, and the larger-than-life profile made the nickname stick. Now, Marvel and the Mets have teamed up to give "Thor" his very own bobblehead in a promotion this season. Rather than just making a plain Thor in Mets colors however, the team and publisher are going all out with this original and exclusive design.
Telltale Kicks Out The Jams With First ‘Guardians of the Galaxy’ Screens, Cast Reveal
Announced late last year, Guardians of the Galaxy: The Telltale Series is the fan-favorite developer's first attempt at crafting an episodic adventure in the Marvel Universe. It's not the first game from Telltale to take place in space, nor is it the first Telltale game based on a movie, but it is the first to have a talking raccoon and tree. So there's that. While details have been slim since the announcement teaser, ahead of PAX East Telltale Games has released the first batch of official screenshots from the upcoming game. What's more, Telltale's also revealed the voice cast behind our favorite space-faring heroes.
The Latest Injustice 2 Trailer Goes Green, But the Environments Still Get Smashed
Aside from giving the players the power to step into the shoes of their favorite heroes and beat the snot out of each other, Injustice 2 also has an actual ongoing narrative at its core. That's not an uncommon thing in fighting games, but it is rare for stories to be more than flimsy excuses for characters to match up against one another. With its newest trailer, we get a bit of a better look at what's going on in the fighting game sequel, who stands with who, and which characters from Injustice are returning.
Don’t Even Trip Dawg: Rick and Morty, Steven Universe and More Coming to Quidd
The curious habit of collecting digital trading cards continues to grow, with major companies like Topps and Upper Deck holding center court. There's plenty of room in the space for smaller companies to pick up the slack though, and as users of Quidd can attest, that app has being doing a more than serviceable job hitting more niche properties. Already hosting card and "sticker" sets based on Bob's Burgers, Valiant comics, Star Trek and more, Quidd is now teaming up with Cryptozoic to bring some Cartoon Network favorites to fans eager for more Steven Universe, Rick and Morty and Adventure Time collectibles.
Netflix’s Punisher is Here to Extract Vengeance on All Your Marvel Hot Toys
It didn't take long for Hot Toys to jump all over the Marvel Netflix license when it was made available. We've already seen Daredevil in sixth-scale form, and now his season two rival, The Punisher, is getting his chance to prove his mettle. At least now you'll be able to set your Netlix heroes against your Marvel Cinematic Heroes, even if Marvel is taking a spectacularly long time to figure out how to make that happen in real life.
