Marvel's Cinematic Civil War Comes to Lego Marvel's Avengers
Marvel's Cinematic Civil War Comes to Lego Marvel's Avengers
Earlier this year, TT Games announced the PlayStation platforms would be getting exclusive Lego Marvel's Avengers content based on the Marvel Cinematic Universe. While the game is already packed with most of the Phase Two films, Ant-Man and Guardians of the Galaxy were left out of the loop, and it's almost impossible to get any Phase Three content in there before those movies actually arrive. That doesn't mean TT is giving up on including those things entirely though, and it all starts today with a free content pack based on Captain America: Civil War. The free add-on may not include any new missions, but it will add in nine new character skins for many of the Marvel heroes and villains making an appearance in the upcoming movie sequel. Not only will Iron Man get his new Mark XLVI armor, but Captain America will have a new, unmasked suit to tear around the game. Falcon will also get his revamped costume, as will Scarlet Witch and the Winter Soldier. Besides his new shock baton, I can't quite tell any discernible difference from this War Machine versus the last one. It's all about the spankin' new Black Panther and Agent 13 though.
Don't Be Sad, Black Widow, Your Civil War Mopeez Plush is Coming Soon
Don't Be Sad, Black Widow, Your Civil War Mopeez Plush is Coming Soon
Most of Funko's collectibles are all about being cute. Mopeez however rely on a bit of schadenfreude. They're sad little versions of your favorite characters, but you're supposed to get enjoyment from how adorably disappointed they are over whatever it is little stuffed characters get upset about. We've seen some Marvel and DC Mopeez before, but this next batch will actually add two of the most sought after characters to the fold with the additions of Black Widow and Black Panther. Now the upcoming Captain America: Civil War series does include Vision and Crossbones, for reasons that will likely never make sense to me. Vision I sort of get. He's an okay guy, even if they did make him a little too OP in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. While Crossbones' movie costume does have a certain appeal, it's still a weird character to make a plush toy for given his roots. Also, there's no better character in this movie to fill out the box? Does anyone care about Bucky Barnes as much as Steve Rogers?
Hasbro Teases First Wave of Captain America: Civil War Figures
Hasbro Teases First Wave of Captain America: Civil War Figures
With the arrival of Captain America: Civil War comes a new wave of tie-in action figures, and Hasbro is making clear its looking to make right with all the Black Widow fans. While there were a few figures of the Soviet spy released in conjunction with Avengers: Age of Ultron, Black Widow was in high demand and short supply. Though we've yet to see just what Hasbro's full range of plans for Civil War include, the first sampling revealed ahead of Toy Fair offers a glimpse at a world where Black Widow is no longer lingering in the shadows. More than a dozen new figures were revealed by Hasbro today (via IGN), including the first ever Black Widow Titan Hero figure. The 12" figure line has predominantly been filled with male characters across Hasbro's Avengers, Spider-Man and Star Wars collections. You can technically count Captain Phasma as the first female to make that leap, but given her lack of defining features, the upcoming Rey 12" unveiled at NYCC last fall (and due this spring) is the one opening new opportunities for Marvel's scarlet-haired secret agent. Given that both have been the center of their own social media campaigns advocating for more female figures, that seems appropriate.

Funko Assembles Its 'Captain America: Civil War' Collectibles
We're 121 days away from Captain America: Civil War hitting theaters, and that seems like the perfect time for Funko to reveal its first line of figures from the upcoming film. Already we've seen Hot Toys and Lego hint at respective plans for toys based on the third Captain America film, and with Funko now diving in, that leaves just a few stragglers (including Hasbro) to show us what to expect on the toy front from the Marvel film that will divide it's two biggest stars. Typically, Funko just reveals its own proprietary mass market figures in the Pop line, but this time the vinyl-maker has also given a glimpse into the variants we'll be able to find, and which retailers will be home to those alternate looks. Curiously enough, the biggest characters in the film wound up with the fewest versions. At least all three of the major female leads are all present and accounted for this time.
Lego Catalog Reveals the First Captain America: Civil War Sets
Lego Catalog Reveals the First Captain America: Civil War Sets
The 2016 Lego catalog is out, and with it come some surprise reveals for upcoming sets based in the Marvel universe. Just like the 2015 catalog revealing a bit about Avengers: Age of Ultron, Lego's latest teasers show a great deal of what to expect from the upcoming cinematic adventure, Captain America: Civil War. These sets are not to be confused with the other recently announced Marvel Super Hero sets, which included the first ever Captain Marvel and Thanos mini figures, though those are also due out in early 2016 and do make an appearance in the catalog. While there have been countless Lego sets based on the Marvel movies (and countless others) that haven't panned out with an exact 1:1 representation to the movie, the Avengers: Age of Ultron sets were fairly spot on. That's what makes these new Civil War sets so interesting. Each shares at least a little bit in common with some of the teasers and trailers we've seen so far, though there are still some surprises that should make Marvel fans excited if they do work out.
Crossbones Makes His First Appearance on the ‘Captain America: Civil War’ Set
Crossbones Makes His First Appearance on the ‘Captain America: Civil War’ Set
When Frank Grillo’s character was introduced in Captain America: The Winter Soldier, he seemed like a decent dude; working for S.H.I.E.L.D. alongside Chris Evans’ Cap to save a bunch of kidnapped hostages. But for longtime Marvel readers, Grillo’s character’s name, Brock Rumlow, was a major red flag. In the comics, Rumlow is the real name of Crossbones, a deranged super-villain and frequent associate of the Red Skull. Sure enough, by the end of Winter Soldier, Grillo’s Rumlow revealed his true allegiance to Hydra (an organization created by none other than Red Skull) and squared off with Anthony Mackie’s Falcon in hand-to-hand combat.

Hasbro's new Captain America: The First Avenger comic series features no shortage of Sentinels of Liberty, but for fans interested in the most basic shield-slinging, it's easy to be overwhelmed with options. In an effort to diversify its lineup, Hasbro's outfitted its numerous Caps with classic shields, blade shields -- even a snowboard shield...
