Batman: Arkham Knight is out today, and by most accounts is amazing on the Xbox One and Playstation 4 and horribly crippled by a subpar port on the PC. But that doesn’t matter to us, right? We want the action figures for the latest (and perhaps last) Arkham game from Rocksteady.
Toys R Us also has the Rhino wave up for pre-order – they currently show up first when you search for Marvel Legends on the TRU site. While you can pre-order the figures individually, they’re $21.99 each – for all seven you’d be at $153.93 (with free shipping, though) so to me it really only makes sense if you’re going to cherry-pick the wave.

I am on the go a lot these days – almost as much as during my earlier days as a salesman and then as a consultant. Sure, instead of customer calls or client meetings, now I’m going to SDCC, Toy Fair, or other conventions, making the occasional real-world toy runs, and visiting family and friends all over the place. But whether it’s a day trip or much longer, what hasn’t changed is the need to take stuff with me – computer and camera gear, clothes, and the occasional action figure.
Because of all this, what I use to carry my stuff is nearly as important as the stuff itself. I want it to be easy to use and to protect the stuff inside. And, it doesn’t hurt if it looks good in the process.
Did you know that June 21st will be the 8th International T-Shirt Day? I’m pretty sure that it was invented by our t-shirt partner, but made-up commemorative day irregardless, they’re giving us a 15% discount starting today and running through T-Shirt Day (the 21st again). And just for that, we’ve made a special t-shirt for the occasion, featuring one of our favorite Masters of the Universe Classics figures – Two-Bad. The Two/Bad movie poster t-shirt is a riff on one of our favorite terrible yet awesome movies from the 90s. Can you name that movie?
Build Ultron Prime, get Ant-Man, and complete the Wrecking Crew!
For a single wave of Marvel Legends, it sure has a lot going on. Known officially as the Ultron wave, it’s tied into the blockbuster Avengers: Age of Ultron movie with Ultron Prime as the Build-a-Figure. Unofficially, it’s also being called the Ant-Man wave – it’s got Scott Lang in the movie Ant-Man costume and Janet Van Dyne and Hank Pym in their comic-based Wasp and Giant Man costumes respectively. And last but not least, it includes two of the figures that were “lost” when Hasbro revamped the distribution model and shelved the running change variants – one of those is Bulldozer, who finally completes the Wrecking Crew.
