Toys R Us has their exclusive Marvel legends All New X-Men box set available for pre-order. The preliminary info we had (check out more pics of the Marvel Legends All New X-Men box set) had the set due to arrive at stores a the start of this month for $84.99. The pre-order page has it listed with an expected 3/19 ship date and an $89.99 price tag.
A delay in overseas shipping is pretty common, but the price increase is just Toys R Us looking to capitalize on the increased popularity of the current Legends line-up, which has had pretty good sell-through in their stores. I guess the silver lining here is that the Marvel Legends line is selling well.
With the Captain America: the Winter Soldier line-up revealed and Toy Fair coming up this weekend, it’d be easy to miss our big Captain America vs. Spider-Man Marvel Legends giveaway. We’ve got three two-figure bundles from the latest waves of Marvel Legends, each featuring a Cap and a Spidey.
- Marvel Now Cap vs Scarlet Spider
- WW2 Cap vs Amazing Spider-Man (movie)
- WW2 Cap vs Superior Spider-Man
Now we all know Cap and Spidey should be friends, but sadly that pairing won’t make it in the movies until Sony lets the rights revert back to Marvel Studios – and with the success of the Amazing re-boot, that’s not likely to happen soon. So for now, it’s just action figures.
You can enter on the original giveaway page, or for your convenience, the contest widget is below. Good luck!

Super Bowl Sunday brought us a clash of the titans. You know I’m not talking about the Seahawks and the Broncos. No, it was all about Captain America vs Spider-Man, and their respective teaser trailers aired during the snooze of a game.

Yes, there will be three random winners this time, and it’s incredibly easy to enter. And if you’re already a fan of the AFP Facebook page, follow the AFP Twitter account, or +1′d the AFP Google+ page, you can temporarily stop being our friends (it’s ok, we’ll forgive you!) and then re-up using the contest widget, for those extra shots at winning this giveaway.

If you’re looking for another opportunity to get Fisted by Mattycollector (groan, I know) then here’s your chance. In another “show off your collection” contest, Mattel is offering up four Masters of the Universe Classics Fisto figures, signed by Toy Guru and Terry Higuchi. If you weren’t a Club Eternia subscriber in 2012, chances are you weren’t able to get him, at least off of the Mattycollector site.
Since the Matty team plans on announcing the winners at Toy Fair, time is short – so get snapping and submit your entry before the contest closes on Thursday, February 6.
Fisto Contest 1/27 – 2/6
Enter to Win a Signed Fisto™ Figure
What’s a whole lot better than a knuckle sandwich? How about getting your hands on a highly popular Fisto™ figure! Send us your best shot of your Masters of the Universe® toy collection and you could be one of four lucky winners. Here’s how…
Our line is entering its sixth year, and we want to see how impressive your collection has become. Show us how creative you are at displaying your figures. Who has the prime spot front and center? Who’s conspiring in the back? Who’s in your army? (You do have an army, right?) We’re looking for originality, enthusiasm, and that true collector spirit.
This highly popular figure sold out faster than you can say “five fierce fingers” when it was released in February 2012 and has not been available since. But, we convinced our marketing and design departments to part with four figures from their own personal collections, and we’ll award them to the most deserving fans based on the entries we receive. These figures are new, still in the box, and signed by our own Toy Guru Scott Neitlich and the figure’s designer Terence Higuchi.
Make sure you read ALL the rules (click here to get the forms you need) and submit them to us with your photo as a JPG. We’ll select the winners and announce them at the New York Toy Fair and on MattyCollector.com on or before February 17, 2014. The winning photos will be also posted (#FistoContest) for enhanced glory and bragging rights.

Toys R Us is running a special promotion – take an extra 20% off of items already on clearance. There’s 151 action figure items that qualify, including this exclusive Marvel Universe X-Factor 6-pack - for just $27.98 when you include the extra discount. The regular price is $44.99.
Unlike the Marvel Legends X-Men set coming out next month (also exclusive to Toys R Us), this set excludes Beast – but it does come with two villains that were created in the X-Factor comic – Mr. Sinister and Apocalypse.
A powerful group of X-MEN goes undercover to form a new team. Posing as humans, they will hunt down mutants, not to do them harm, but to secretly ensure their survival. These courageous heroes are known as: X-Factor!
With CYCLOPS as their fearless X-Factor leader, JEAN GREY as their telekinetic mind reader, ANGEL as the vigilant winged warrior and ICEMAN as the ice-wielding controller of cold, the X-Factor team seems to be ready for almost anything. But are they ready to take on the immortal APOCALYPSE and the devious MR. SINISTER villains? Only you can tell!

Our friend Luke is running a sale this week at Luke’s Toy Store, and even if you’re not a die-hard fan of Minimates, there is probably something there you’ll want. The sale covers all merchandise and it’s 10% off any order over $50. Of course, Luke got his start on Minimates, and there’s a fair amount of them that are great deals even without the 10% off extra. For example, the first and second Alpha Flight Minimates box sets are on sale for just $6 each. There’s lots of deals across the Diamond Select Toys Minimates brands.

It might be a bit early for Spring Cleaning, but I suppose you can file this under New Year’s Resolutions. My wife has been on me about the growing pile of action figures that has me fearing that a camera crew from Hoarders will show up. So expect some Free Stuff giveaways and eBay auctions to help put a dent in the plastic hazard in our home office.
Up right now on eBay is a set of the exclusive Marvel Legends Thunderbolts from SDCC last year. I picked up extras for fellow collectors but this one never found a home. You guys play with your action figures, right? This set will be complete but will ship loose – that should save you a few bucks over the auctions that include the packaging. And if you win, shoot me a message on eBay that you found the auction here on AFP, and I’ll cut 10% off the final price. Thanks for looking!
