As much as I’m digging on Marvel Legends for 2015, I’d be remiss if I didn’t highlight the other expressions from Hasbro’s Marvel team before shutting down for the night. In figures, the ones nearest to my heart are the Marvel Universe and Marvel Titan Series figures.
Diamond Select Toys is first out of the gate announcing figures for the upcoming Ant-Man movie from Marvel Studies, with the Marvel Select Ant-Man (or should that be Ant-Men?)
Exclusive: Get Your First Look At Marvel’s ‘Ant-Man’ Action Figures
Small hero, big toys.
Marvel’s newest cinematic superhero “Ant-Man” may be small, but his upcoming movie is getting a HUGE push from the studio. Which means toys, and lots of them. And today MTV News is pleased to bring you the first look at Diamond Select Toys‘ awesome action figure for the film — well, actually, action figures, plural.
MTV broke the news. You can get more details here: Exclusive: Get Your First Look At Marvel’s ‘Ant-Man’ Action Figures – MTV.
Alright, the headline was totally tongue in cheek – because just as soon as the latest sequel plans for Star Wars were announced, we all knew that Hasbro was firing up their money-making machines with plans for a slew of supporting toys. But even though we’ve got a year before the movie hits theaters, Star Wars toy sites are buzzing with an image showing prototypes of Star Wars: The Force Awakens action figures leaked at a Chinese forum.
Now, I was completely unable to avoid the trailer (and have some trailer treats for you below), but I have been avoiding movie news in the hopes of remaining as spoiler free as possible. Still, there’s some information that we can glean from the prototypes that tells us about the action figure line, while not spoiling anything we didn’t already know from official Star Wars sources. Let’s take a look.

I apologize in advance for any duds – I haven’t had the chance to check all of these out myself. But what else are we gonna do today? 😀 Hope you had a great Thanksgiving!
I hope the
uncanny way the Avengers: Age of Ultron trailer aligns with Celine Dion’s My Heart Will Go On is not foreshadowing the kind of movie we’ll be seeing next summer. (Seriously, check out the lyrics as Cap is kicking in that door or while that mutant Scarlet Witch is screaming.)
Marvel Studios just might think that a historical romance drama could be the Marvel iceberg to finally sink Titanic and become the #2 movie in all-time box office history (the first Avengers movie came close). They might be right, but I think they will have a hard time picking the characters to be the star-crossed lovers.
Based on the trailer, I’m guessing it’s the Hulk and Iron Man whose love will be thwarted by Ultron. But MTV’s Shaunna Murphy ran the analysis and concluded it’s Thor and… everyone. She’s got the GIFs to prove it. What do you think? 😉
Get your first look at Ultron trying to tear apart Captain America, Iron Man, Thor and the rest of the world in the first official teaser trailer for Marvel’s “Avengers: My Ultron Will Go On” in theaters May 1, 2015!
I do not own the rights to this work. This is purely a spoof. Enjoy.
