Marvel is running a promo for free shipping at the Marvel Store with code MARVELSHIP. This is a good deal when combined with some of the figures on sale, like the Marvel Select movie Falcon ($14.99, normally $24.95) and the Disney store exclusive Marvel Select Spider-Man and Electro two-pack ($29.99, normally $49.95). There’s more on sale, including some Funko and Minimates.
Free shipping applies across the entire store, so if you were looking to pick up some Marvel gear (I’m a fan of their t-shirts) or other official merchandise, now’s the time. The free shipping offer is for today (January 19) only, so get your orders in while you can.

3A Toys has held its 2000 A.D. license for several years now, but they’ve released figures more slowly than we’d like. In 2010, they released Tharg, followed by ABC Warriors Mongrol and Ro-Jaws in 2011 and 2012, respectively. Today’s pre-order for Judge Death marks their launch into the more widely known Judge Dredd domain and their transition to the 1/12 scale for 2000 A.D. (Tharg was a 1/6 scale figure, and the ABC Warriors came in both 1/6 and 1/12 scales.)
Judge Death features a new 3A super-articulated body, fabric apps, and will come in two colorways – a standard colored version and a 3A-exclusive “classic comic” grey-scale. Both versions of the 3A Toys Judge Death are available for pre-order at Bambaland for $60 each. Dredd and Hammerstein have been teasssssssed as the next figures in the pipeline.

3A Toys furthers the World War Robot story line with two 1/6 scale SOTF figures – one is an update to the Dropcloth with 6 colorways, and the other is a new field mechanic with 3 colorways. The figures maintain the level of articulation and detail we expect from 3A, but feature a cleaner aesthetic perhaps indicative that the next stage of robot/human warfare has moved out of the trenches and is more surgical and precise. Of course, I have no idea what SOTF stands for, so I’m just going by what I see here. I’ve also included some pics of the Mule and Bertie bots (not on sale today) in the Civic Defense colorway.
The Dropcloth 1.5 figures go for $160 individually. There’s a commander and 5 versions of the guard, packed randomly. You can also get all six for $860 in the six-pack. The mechanics go for $140 each, and the desert colorway is a 3AA exclusive. You can pre-order them at Bambaland, 3A’s online store.

Retailer exclusives can be frustrating for today’s collector. I know I’m spending less time hitting brick and mortar stores for traditional toy runs, so when a toy company announces them, I start worrying about whether I’ll actually be able to acquire them for my collection.
With these Hasbro exclusives for Marvel Legends and Star Wars, I guess I needn’t have worried.

Mezco has shared some new high res pics of their One:12 Collective Dark Knight Returns Batman, including an “x-ray” shot that shows just how super-articulated the figure is underneath that black and gray (or dark blue and gray, for the Mezco exclusive) batsuit. This figure has been at the top of my most wanted list since Mezco introduced the One:12 Collective line at San Diego Comic-Con this year.
