Wolverine Alone… Again! (Sort Of) –

Wolverine is the best at what he does, and what he does… well, you know the rest. But in Bill’s latest comic, you could say his fight with Sabretooth is a cut above “isn’t very nice.”

Enjoy Wolverine Alone… Again! (Sort Of), and be sure to check out more of Bill’s work here on AFP and even more at Bill’s Comics.

Marvel Legends Agent Venom Finds its Legs as Walgreens Exclusive

Hasbro continues to find ways to bring the Marvel Legends that have yet to find shelf space because of the switch to movie-themed waves this year (see the previous announcement of another wave of Previews exclusive X-Men Legends.)

With this announcement, they’ve revealed that the Flash Thompson Agent Venom will be a Walgreens exclusive. Not sure how pre-ordering at SDCC will work, but we’ll find out.

We are excited to confirm that Hasbro’s Marvel Spider-Man Legends Infinite 6″ Agent Venom Action Figure, previously revealed at Comic-Con International in San Diego last Summer, will be made available this Fall, exclusively at Walgreens in the U.S.

This figure will be available for pre-order next month at SDCC. Fans should visit Hasbro’s display booth during the show for more information.

SDCC 2014: Diamond Select Toys Announces Days of Future Past Marvel Minimates Exclusives and More

Banking on the success of Fox’s X-Men: Days of Future Past hit movie, Diamond Select Toys have announced a comics-based Marvel Minimates boxed set for San Diego Comic-Con, featuring Wolverine, Kitty Pryde, Mystique and a Sentinel. Great choices to tie in to the movie, but I don’t recall Mystique featuring prominently at all in the comic event – but then again she wasn’t being played by J-Law back then and like Wolverine, my memories can’t be trusted. DST is also making an accompanying comic book cover recreating Uncanny X-Men #141, available separately, featuring the Marvel Minimates in place of the comic book characters.

There usually are more Marvel Minimates exclusives during SDCC, and perhaps there are still more to come through DST’s distribution partners. DST also announced a Walking Dead Minimates set, a Sin City Marv exclusive figure, and more from Star Trek, Star Wars, Godzilla, and Jay and Silent Bob.  Just over a month to go. Are you getting excited yet for SDCC?

Marvel Select Storm, Jane Foster, and Lizard on Sale Today Only at Entertainment Earth

Three Marvel Select figures from Diamond Select Toys are on sale for today only. Storm is in her classic, first appearance costume – well, her first appearance after she appeared sans costume showering the farmlands of her home village, where she was considered a goddess. Jane Foster is from Thor: The Dark World and is one half of a matched pair with Thor. Their bases combine to form a larger diorama. And Lizard is from his modern comic appearances.

Prices on Marvel Select have been creeping up (just like with all figures). These are on sale for 35% off, for today only. Happy shopping!

Hot Toys Teases All Five Guardians of the Galaxy

As if I wasn’t hyped enough for the Guardians of the Galaxy movie, opening August 1, Hot Toys has to stoke the fires by teasing not one, but all five of the rag-tag team. Last time they did this it was for the Hot Toys Avengers line-up - but that already had three bankable franchises behind it. Hot Toys must think Guardians is a pretty sure thing. Awesome!

Marvel Studios’ upcoming summer blockbuster, Guardians of the Galaxy, will expand the Marvel Cinematic Universe into the cosmos! The space adventure film will follow Starlord Peter Quill and a team of disparate misfits—Rocket, a gun-toting raccoon, Groot, a tree-like humanoid, the deadly and enigmatic Gamora and the revenge-driven Drax the Destroyer to save the galaxy!

Hot Toys Guardians of the Galaxy Backstage Pass teaser

Following the release of the film’s latest TV Spot, Hot Toys is excited to share with you all a peek of the range of collectibles that we are developing based on this action packed movie!

Please stay tuned for more updates coming soon!

Hot Toys Reveals Electro from The Amazing Spider-Man 2

Hot Toys The Amazing Spider-Man 2 Electro 01

I have not seen The Amazing Spider-Man 2 yet, but have seen some of the previews and have the 6-inch figure from the Hasbro Spider-Man Legends line. The design is a big departure from the big-screen-unfriendly green and yellow costume from the comics, but is a bit too reminiscent of Mr. Freeze from the horrible Joel Schumacher Batman & Robin to give me good feelings about the movie. For those of you who’ve seen it – how was it?

Still, the figure looks to be incredibly rendered by Hot Toys, and with the addition of LED lights in what looks like both the head and hands, this should be a visually engaging figure for the shelves of Amazing Spidey 2 fans. I’m not sold yet (and probably won’t be unless the movie blows me away), but if you are, you can pre-order him when he shows up at Sideshow Toys. Last I checked, he’s not yet there.
