The Marvel.com website has an offer for a free (you pay $2.59 shipping and handling) Iron Man Minimate – and while I couldn’t find where to get the promo code for it, presumably it will come with the Iron Man and Hulk: Heroes United movie that is available today on Blu-Ray and DVD.
For another $9.99, you can also pick up 2 more Marvel Minimates – Hulk in the Iron Man armor that he’ll somehow get to wear in the movie, and the Hulk-Buster Iron Man that is cool and will likely fight Hulk if we get the expected ”first we fight, then we become friends” plot line.
Update: found it in the fine print on the offer page – movie purchase is required to get the free Iron Man Minimate.
This week’s customs are all high up on my want-but-can’t-have list:
- Marvel Legends SIF by JLA - I really do wish that Hasbro had gotten on the ball and made a Thor Marvel Legends wave or two – although I’m generally not enthused by using DC Universe Classics figures for Marvel characters (and vice versa), this custom really works out well – I’ll have to compare the sizes to newer ML Thor, though, because I wonder how Sif measures up – ends Dec 07, 2013 20:49:30 PST
- WWE Elite Hulk Hogan by 1more2come - this is a relatively simple custom but fills a gap in all our Mattel WWE Legends collections – with Hulk recently re-upping with TNA, it’d take a miracle to get him in the Mattel WWE line-up, even if it’s just a flashback figure – it’s too bad Marvel Toys / Toy Biz is no longer in the game with its TNA figures – ends today, Dec 03, 2013 18:47:19 PST
- 1/6 Scale Blade Runner Rick Deckard by thebatmancollector - this custom combines elements from Sideshow Collectibles, Hot Toys, and costuming from Android Hunter – I think there’s enough of a cult following for Blade Runner that Sideshow or Hot Toys could pick it up – if Sideshow can make a Snake Plissken, certainly there’d be more options for figures from Blade Runner – ends today, Dec 03, 2013 15:16:18 PST
In AFP’s Border Patrol, we scour active eBay auctions for customized action figures that you won’t want to let slip by!
Custom action figure fans, CustomCon36 will start next Tuesday, December 10. If you have a last minute entry for CustomCon 36, please contact me if you need just a little more time.

I’ve always been a MAD Magazine fan, and Alfred E. Neuman as our favorite DC characters is a hoot – and now the action figures are a lot more affordable as part of DC Entertainment’s Cyber Monday deals. All of the MAD Just-Us League Figures are on sale for $9.99 (regularly $22.95).
All the big guys are there, with the exception of Batman, proving again that Batman is better than Superman… at least until Ben Affleck puts on the mask.
A couple months ago, Jor-El was one of the tougher Man of Steel Movie Masters figures to find. Until 1PM PST today, or while supplies last, he’s one of Amazon’s Cyber Monday deals for the great price of $7.69. They also had the black-suited Man of Steel Superman up earlier, but he’s already sold out at the $9.99 deal price and now back up to $13.31.
Kidrobot has got a great sale going on for Cyber Monday. Practically everything is on sale, and started at 60% off in the wee hours. It’ll be 50% off until 2PM PST, and then 40% off until 11PM PST.
My wife’s infatuation with blind boxed figures is starting to rub off on me. I’m a little obsessed with Frank Kozik’s collaboration with Marvel – mini Labbits fashioned after Marvel’s heroes, anti-heroes, and villains. It’s certainly an interesting character selection for the first series. While I was there, I also picked up some Travis Cain BFFs for the missus – those are her current obsession.
Since the Mattycollector Cyber Monday sale kicked off last Tuesday, four items have sold out. Masters of the Universe Classics Granymyr was first to go, during Early Access. Since then, Hordak, Orko, and Battle Armor Skeletor have joined him.
What could we see during the hourly flash sales? I think the Spirit of Hordak may come out of hiding. Do you think customer service stock for the Horde Trooper 2-pack and subscriber-only figures like Sea Hawk could show up?

There’s a few notable items up for sale today only as part of Entertainment Earth’s Black Friday week 5-day sale.
They also have the DC Unlimited Injustice Batman and Injustice Superman figures up today but we all know those didn’t turn out so nicely. For the items up for the full 5 days, many of the Square Enix Play Arts Kai figures sold out fast, but they still have the Super Street Fighter IV Ken and Sakura Play Arts Kai figures for a steal at $35 each. Happy shopping!
