Wolverine Alone… Again! (Sort Of) – BillsComics.com

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.

Friday Freebie: Captain America Marvel Legends Infinite Series Wave 2.1 (Loose)

Marvel Legends Infinite Series - Captain America wave 2.1

It’s time for another AFP Free Stuff giveaway! This time around, we’ve got the second wave of the Captain America Marvel Legends Infinite Series, which ironically ends with this wave. The prize will include all four figures in the wave, shipped loose: Black Widow, the Winter Soldier, and two versions of Cap. They’ll come with any extra heads, hands, and accessories, but will *not* have the SHIELD Mandroid build-a-figure parts. If you’re still looking for Mandroid parts, you can pick up the Captain America Marvel Legends Action Figures Wave 2 Rev. 1 at Entertainment Earth – EE will ship it for free in the US.

We’ll have one lucky winner this time around, and to keep it simple we’ll run the contest on Facebook. Here’s how:

Find the Facebook post for this article on the ActionFigurePics.com Facebook page. It will show up as “ActionFigurePics.com shared a link” with the Friday Freebie title below it.

Pre-Orders Reveal X-Men Legends Jubilee Wave as Previews Exclusive

Previews Exclusive X-Men Marvel Legends

New pre-order listings at Entertainment Earth and BigBadToyStore have revealed an upcoming X-Men Marvel Legends wave as a Previews exclusive. This five figure wave features Wolverine, Magneto, Storm, Stryfe, Cyclops, with a  Build-a-Figure Jubilee. First revealed a few weeks back in a Japanese magazine, this wave had been widely reported as a Toys R Us exclusive. With these listings, however, it appears that the X-Men will go the same route as the Wolverine Legends wave. As Previews exclusives, these will set you back – $179.99 for a case from Entertainment Earth and BBTS – $22.50 a figure. BBTS has a 5-figure set for $149.99 – a whopping $30 a figure.

It’s great to see the mini-BAF Jubilee that we first saw at San Diego Comic-Con last year and the Stryfe figure teased by the Hasbro Marvel team way back when finally make their way to shelves – but I will be missing the other figures that had been shown as part of the Jubilee wave. With themed waves being the norm now, it’s a challenge to see how those figures will get released.

SDCC 2014: Hasbro Goes Cosmic with Marvel Exclusives

Hasbro has released the details of its Marvel exclusives for San Diego Comic-Con, and we’ve got the pics in all their high res glory. Like last year, they’ve got figure packs in both the 3.75-inch (formerly Marvel Universe, now Marvel Infinite) and 6-inch (formerly Marvel Legends, now Marvel Legends Infinite) scales. The figures continue to be comics-based – this is for Comic-Con, after all – but this year there’s a unified Cosmic theme. The Marvel Legends Star Lord we knew was coming shows up in the Legends pack, as well as Hasbro’s second attempt at Black Bolt. There’s heavy reuse on the figures, all fan favorites, but I think they’re all smartly done with nothing to complain about at this stage.

The cosmic theme is a nice tie-in to Guardians of the Galaxy, which opens shortly after SDCC, but with the connections to Thanos on both exclusive packs, it begs the question - is Hasbro tying in to Marvel’s upcoming films in the cinematic universe? Thanos was revealed in one of the after credits scenes in The Avengers movie, but we were surprised that the big bad for Avengers 2 was Ultron. It might be too early to start hyping Avengers 3, but perhaps Thanos could rear his ugly mug in a Guardians sequel. Where do you guys think Thanos is going to show up?

Get Your Marvel Legends Fix with Spider-Man Legends Variants

Hasbro has had some challenges getting their Marvel Legends variants from last year to retail, and this year we’re seeing limited distribution of the variants for both the Captain America and Spider-Man waves of Marvel Legends Infinite Series. But I’ve just ordered the “wave 2″ variants for the Spidey line – Toxin, Spider-Girl, and Boomerang are all in stock at Amazon. Happy shopping!

The Amazing Spider-Man: Date Night – BillsComics.com

With The Amazing Spider-Man 2 opening in a week, Bill is on top of his game with a new Spidey comic. While it’s got Electro and Rhino as two of the main villains, this one’s more of an homage to the Tom DeFalco and Ron Frenz era of Amazing Spider-Man, which happens to be Bill’s favorite.

So, enjoy Date Night, and be sure to check out more of Bill’s work here on AFP and even more at Bill’s Comics.
