There’s no better way to start a new year than with a deal – and today’s deal from Entertainment Earth is for the 3.75-inch Venture Bros figures from Big Bang Pow! The Doc, Hank, Dean, and Brock are all available for $5 each (that’s half off), as are their nemeses – the Monarch, Dr. Mrs. the Monarch, and Phantom Limb. The con exclusive bloody Brock Samson is also available for $7.50 (also half off).
Go Team Venture! Happy New Year!
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!
