I’m not sure “Marvel Monday” is really a thing, but it certainly feels that way with these two updates. First, the official Marvel Store is running an up-to-25% off deal, today only, with the “MARVELMONDAY” code. You have to add $100 to your cart to qualify for the full 25%, or $50 for 15% – you’ll qualify for free shipping too. Marvel Select is already on sale for $20 each, but where it can really pay off is in the collectibles section, where that 25% off makes a big dent in Hot Toys items.
And, thanks to our pal Rodney, who gave us the heads-up that pre-orders for the Marvel Legends Allfather series have started popping up on eBay. This listing for the Allfather has all seven figures (Captain Marvel, Sentry, Hawkeye, Machine Man, Scarlet Witch, Thor, and Iron Fist) up for $159. That’s not that bad of a deal when you consider free shipping – 9 sets left as of this morning. Happy shopping!
The holidays are a great time to pick up figures on sale as retailers look to clear slower movers at the end of the year. So while you won’t see any of the harder to find figures on this list, you may be able to fill some gaps in your collection or get some fodder for customizing projects. Here are some of the lowest-priced Marvel Legends at Amazon. I’ve picked out the ones that qualify for Prime shipping – even if you’re not a Prime member, getting over $25 in your cart will qualify you for free 2-day shipping.
There’s a lot more Marvel Legends at Amazon on sale – I just picked ones I saw under $12. Happy shopping!
If you’re trying to recover from Black Friday, Cyber Monday, and the ongoing Cyber Week, then Entertainment Earth isn’t making it easy. They’ve got a limitless supply of daily deals, and today’s Entertainment Earth Daily Deal is for Robocop, classic and… well, not so classic. EE has two Play Arts Kai figures by Square Enix. They’ve got the classic Robocop, and while the remake may not have captured the same magic as the original, the new Robocop suit makes for a cool figure. I’ve not been buying as many Play Arts Kai figures this year, since the prices have kept going up – but at 40% off today, I’d buy that for
a dollar fifty-four dollars!
They’ve also got the Superstars Robocop mini-figure from Kasual Friday at 62% off, for $5. ED-209 wants you to buy them all – you have 15 seconds to comply.
With Toy Guru out of the Mattycollector marketing team line-up, Mattel may need to look at hiring someone to manage their social media a bit more actively. Sure, there were Facebook and Twitter postings about their flash sales, but nothing detailing what figures were actually added to the Mattycollector Cyber Monday sale at 9AM PST – even on the Mattycollector site itself. And I’ll admit I’m a little salty over it.
If the flash sale items appear at the top of the list, then it’s Sky High with the Jet Sled, Castaspella, and Jitsu from Masters of the Universe Classics who showed up. I almost certainly would have bought another Jitsu, but he and Sky High sold out quickly. And as of last viewing, He-Man and Panthor from MOTUC, and the “bound” Doomsday, Larfleeze, Red Hood, Freddy Freeman (Capt. Marvel Jr.), Huntress, Lead, Saint Walker, Wally West Flash, and John Constantine from DC Universe Classics have sold out thus far.
Sideshow is upping the discounts on selected 1/6 scale Hot Toys figures from their DC and Marvel licenses. Many of these items were already on sale for 10 – 30% off (and many other items are still at those discount levels) for Black Friday but are now seeing even bigger discounts on Cyber Monday. See all the deals on Sideshow’s Black Friday / Cyber Monday sale page.
And be sure to check out the rest of the deals we found this weekend. Happy shopping!
Want to avoid the crowds on Black Friday, or resting your feet after spending all night at the stores? Kick back, relax, and shop for Black Friday and Cyber Monday deals from the comfort of your home (or wherever you may be visiting from)!
I apologize in advance for any duds – I haven’t had the chance to check all of these out myself. But what else are we gonna do today? Hope you had a great Thanksgiving!
There’s almost 500 action figures on sale during TFAW’s Gray Days of November Sale, which is on right now. I’ve found prices there start a bit high to begin with, so it takes some exceptional discounts to make it a good deal. So you may not find the prices that you’re looking for in their Hasbro (with Star Wars and G.I. JOEs as the bulk of the items) or Mattel DC sections, but look through and you will come across some gems.
For example, the excellent Ultraman, Power Ring, and Superwoman Crime Syndicate figures from DC Collectibles are under $13 each, and the Danaerys and Ned Stark Game of Thrones figures from Funko are under $14 each. I just did a quick run through, so there’s probably more deals worth pursuing that I missed. Happy shopping!
Mattycollector’s “7 Days of Cyber Monday” sale kicked off this morning with Early Access for Club Eternia subscribers. I still find the name odd (at least the sale actually lasts 7 days this year) but am crystal clear on its intent – Mattel wants to clear out its remaining DC Universe Classics figures inventory. Club Infinite Earths figures are priced at $6 each for the regular figures (like Wally West Flash, Phantom Stranger, and Larfleeze) and $9 for the oversized ones (like Lead and Elasti-Girl). I guess good things come to those who wait.
The Classics figures for this year (Connor Kent, Ice, and hook-handed Aquaman) aren’t clearanced – they’re at $23. But Watchmen figures have been knocked down to $15 each from $20 and the horribly over-priced Super Powers figures are at $24 from $30. If you were hoping to get the Doomsday Unleashed figure at 20% off, you’re out of luck – to get him at $32 you had to also buy the prison costumed version from SDCC, and he sold out early on this morning. The unleashed Doomsday is still available as of this writing, but at the full $40 price.
Rounding out the sale, Masters of the Universe Classics from Club Eternia and Club Etheria prior to 2014 have been knocked down to $21.60 from $27. And Ghostbuster 2-packs with the removable proton packs are down to $40 from $50. Finally, Loo-Kee and Kowl, the Club Eternia chase figures, are up – still at $20.
All access to the 7 Days of Cyber Monday sale starts tomorrow at 9AM PST.
With Black Friday approaching, I’ve been getting ready for deals on action figures. So I was psyched to see that Entertainment Earth is running a pre-Black Friday sale. While I was less than enthused by the offerings in the action figure category – less than a dozen in total from Bandai (1), Bif Bang Pow! (7), DC Collectibles (2), and Jazwares (1) – something in the sale did catch my attention. They have stands for 4-inch action figures on sale – 25 stands for $6.
From time to time I get questions from readers on where to find stands. Back in the day, McFarlane sold them online, but stopped several years back. Pro Tech stands have been the de facto stand-in, but start at 44 cents a pop, although they get cheaper in big quantities. But at 24 cents a stand, the EE deal is pretty damn good; the cheapest the Pro Tech stands get are 33 cents each, but you have to buy over 500!
EE has got five color options – clear, white, tan gray, and black. These should work with all your Hasbro 4-inchers – G.I. JOEs, Marvel Universe, Star Wars, and Indiana Jones (although I don’t know many who have these) – and 4-inchers from other lines, like Playmates Star Trek figures.
Hopefully we’ll see some better deals as the week progresses, but for now, cheap stands are a decent start. Happy shopping!
If you’ve been on the fence about picking up the Hot Toys Batman and Robin from the ’60s television show, you might have found the right weekend to do so. Right now, Sideshow Collectibles is offering a bundled deal for the pair – add the Dynamic Duo to your cart and you’ll get another 5% off the discounted price (already almost $40 off) plus free shipping and extra rewards points (to the tune of $35.55). Batman and Robin are also on sale individually, but in this case I can’t see getting one without the other, especially with the 5% kicker.
But maybe the ’60s isn’t your thing – if not, they are also offering another bundle for the Sideshow Collectibles Batman and Hot Toys Bank Robber Joker. Both are awesome figures more suited for your dark and gritty Batman tastes. You’ll get 15% off the regular price for each and free shipping.
These bundles expire at the end of the month, and the free shipping is for domestic U.S. shipping only. Happy shopping!
