New images of Hasbro’s Marvel Legends for the forthcoming Captain America Civil War film have surfaced online.
The first wave of characters from the line include comic versions of heroes and villains from the Captain America comics.
These three new figures – Captain America, Iron Man MK46 and Black Panther are based on the movie versions. There is no word however on which other figures make up Wave 2 or which Build A Figure.
Kotobukiya are to release a number of 1/10th scale Kotobukiya ArtFX+ based on characters from Star Wars: The Force Awakens! The latest being Kylo Ren!
A Kotobukiya Japanese import! Star Wars ARTFX+ Statues bring you all of the quality and detailing that you expect from an ARTFX release in a great smaller scale perfect for collecting!
The shrouded Kylo Ren accompanies the First Order in their quest to control the galaxy. As he aids this campaign new information surfaces about the whereabouts of a Jedi Master that will lead him on a direct course to face his past. Display Kylo Ren with his hood up or down in 8 unique poses with the included action parts.
ARTFX+ Statues are fun-to-assemble pre-painted snap-fit kits that can be put together easily in seconds without glue or modeling skill. Kylo Ren is perfectly scaled (1/10) to the figures in the ARTFX+ line and comes with magnets in his feet for extra stability on the included metal display base. Display this Dark Force-wielder alongside other Star Wars Episode VII: The Force Awakens figure kits from Kotobukiya!
Previous releases from the line have included Captain Phasma, First Order Stormtrooper Sergeant, First Order Stormtrooper 2-pack and C-3PO, R2-D2 & BB-8 3-pack.
Combine the two ARTFX+ statues together at the base to replicate the epic battle everyone has been waiting for! The ARTFX+ Batman and Superman are sold separately so that they can also be displayed by themselves. As the Man of Steel swings his punches at Batman, Gotham’s vigilante guards himself with one arm, with his fist pulled back ready to strike at Superman. The 1/10 scale ARTFX+ Batman V Superman statues include all the intricate details at an easier to collect size. Don’t miss the chance to own the two most famous DC Comics heroes!
Much in the same vein as last years hugely popular Marvel, Avengers: Age Of Utron Hulk & Hulkbuster ArtFX+ statues, Kotobukiya are set to release two statues (bought seperately) from DC’s forthcoming Superman:Dawn Of Justice film depicting Superman and an armoured Batman going in to battle!
Funko seem to be slowly but surely taking over the world with their endless acquisitions of licenses and new lines!
Vinyl Idolz is their latest line and to be honest I’m not too sure what to make of these! It’s the freakish eyes…
Some of the figures look cool – Rick Grimes, Egon Spengler and Napoleon Dynamite the charactures look spot on, but on others they just look weird!
Daryl Dixon… it’s like one eye looking for you and one eye looking at you! Ray Stantz looks like he is on drugs and Marty McFly looks in a state of shock!
We all know Funko’s paint applications leave a lot to be desired so goodness only knows what the finished Daryl Dixon will look like! Will the eyes be straight or will the pupils even be on the eyeballs!
For now here is a look at some of the figures that are coming out later this year…
ThreeZero have picked up several one sixth scale licenses of late including Game of Thrones, The Walking Dead, TMNT and more recently Breaking Bad!
A few images have surfaced of what they are currently working on and by the looks of things new figures of Rick Grimes, Jon Snow and Leonardo & Michelangelo will be coming soon!

We do love the Kotobukiya lines… especially the ArtFX figures and the Bishoujo figures!
It has been a while since Kotobukiya have released a Marvel themed Bishoujo, the last being Psylocke!
On Koto’s Facebook page they gave fans an advance look at the Wasp Bishoujo though no dates for release or price have been revealed.
Marvel Select have released a number of Zombie versions of characters from the Marvel Universe and following on from last years Zombie Magneto comes this Zombie Sabertooth!
Standing around 8″ tall the figure includes a diorama base featuring a broken off piece of the Green Goblin’s glider!
DC continue to showcase their line of action figures for the forthcoming year with these offerings from the TV Series’ of Arrow and The Flash.
With Arrow they are really starting to scrape the barrel by doing a Felicity Smoak “action figure” but John Diggle and Arsenal are welcome additions to the popular line.
So far The Flash has been the only figure from the TV show announced but every super hero needs a nemisis and now Captain Cold has been added to the line with an expected release of October!
