It’s been awhile since my last Marvel Universe review. Truth is, MU and I seem to have had a falling out. Space, budgeting, the return of Marvel Legends, & just finding the damn things have all affected my MU purchases of late. I haven’t bought many, but I did need the
Ever since the DC Minimates from DC Direct died on the vine, I’ve been a lot more selective with my Minimates purchases. But Diamond Select Toys has its ways of pulling me back in, and there’s no better way than by making a figure from one of my favorite video
As we were enjoying the afterglow/aftermath of SDCC 2012 a couple weeks ago, another important toy event was taking place half way around the world. Our man in Japan, Robert Baldwin, was there gathering the latest news, pictures, and even a few rumors from WonderFest!
Today, Noisy and I are going to take a closer look at some of our favorite non-Mattel lines featured at San Diego Comic-Con. I’ve got some quick write-ups on Transformers, Star Wars, and Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, while Noisy will explore the Marvel Universe and Marvel Legends offerings!
After a few weeks of hunting, I’d given up on finding the six inch movie Avengers figures around my area, and I was mostly right. Luckily we were out of town for a comic book convention, and I happened across a few of the figures.

In years past, there might’ve been some toy news revealed at NYCC, but with Hasbro making a bigger commitment with NYCC-specific exclusives and Mattel trotting out a few reveals, last weekend ended up much more exciting than I’d expected.
Did you get Captain Britain anything for his birthday? No? Well, that’s alright. The good Captain from across the pond turns thirty-five this month and, even if you didn’t get him anything, Hasbro’s got us covered; they’ve just released the first figure of his classic threads in their Marvel Universe line.
After a particularly hectic September and a promotion in October, my ability to keep up with the latest toy news is a bit compromised. I had no idea that the 6” movie-related Cap & Thor figures had reached stores when I found Loki sneering at me from the pegs last night.
This review was originally intended to wrap up our Flags & Spandex Week, but then Preview Night had to go and be all amazing, so we decided to hold off for a few days and start our Armchair Coverage early. The International Patriots 3pk includes Cap, Captain Britain, and Red Guardian.
So let’s take a break from the Mattycollector hullabaloo with another Captain America: The First Avenger review! It’s day three of our Flags & Spandex week and we’re going to make a jump over to the comic book side line with a look at Captain Britain in his New Excalibur duds.
