Captain America may have opened in theaters this weekend with Spidey not far behind, but the toys have been out for months now – so we’re onto the next big Marvel movie. The Marvel Legends line for Guardians of the Galaxy is up for pre-order now at Amazon.com. They’re listed at $21.99 each, showing a steady creep up from when Hasbro first brought back Legends. Don’t forget, though, that you’re getting a full-sized Groot Build-a-Figure!
Amazon has the release date as June 1st, a couple months before the August 4 movie release date. Go get em!

There’s always some entertaining gags on April Fool’s Day, but this one can bench press 440 lbs. While the Governator isn’t actually an official product (I’m sure there’ll be a few Ahhhnold fans who kitbash their own, though), Sideshow is actually giving away a life-sized Terminator Endoskeleton bust. Click through to the Governator contest page for your shot.
He said he’d be back… and he is!

Things From Another World is having its Saint Patrick’s Day sale, and they’ve got 240 items up to half off in their Toy section. They’ve got stuff from Funko, NECA, Hasbro, Mattel, Diamond Select Toys, and more. I’ve got my eye on this Hanna Barbera Space Ghost – at $10.49 it’s a steal for a six-incher. I’ll need to take a closer look to see what else there is to take home. Happy shopping!

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!
