An exclusive figure, this awesome masked Wolverine is the latest addition to Marvel Select’s awesome line.
Standing about 8 inches tall, his brown costume is a more muted (and more awesome?) version of the stark yellow and black outfit we’re used to seeing. He comes with a sweet figure stand and a Samurai base that makes us all the more excited for the upcoming Wolverine-in-Japan film, The Wolverine.

Unveiled at San Diego Comic-Con 2012, the video game trailer featuring everyone’s favorite insane assassin, Deadpool. The trailer starts off with Deadpool breaking the fourth wall and talking to himself before switching to the character doing what he does best: killing people. The game seems as over-the-top as one would expect it to be, with the superhero yelling out catchphrases like ‘Bang Bang’ and ‘Pew Pew’ while firing his pistols. He even says ‘Sh*t’ in the trailer.
The game seems very in line with the comics and has the extraordinarily talented Nolan North voicing Deadpool, as he has in a handful of other games and animated movies the character has appeared in. The game looks to be a third person action/shooter, with a very distinct comic-book style to it. If you’re a fan of Deadpool (and who isn’t), this title should definitely be on your radar.
Little else is known about Deadpool aside from what’s shown in the trailer.

Mystique is one of many Marvel femmes fatale, but she might just be the one with the most widespread appeal.
This Bishoujo figure makes it clear why.
KOTOBUKIYA Japanese import! The popular Marvel Bishoujo collection (combining iconic superheroes and villains with traditional Japanese stylings) continues to bring you the amazing beauties of the Marvel Comics universe as you’ve never seen them before. Last time we saw the ninja warrior Elektra, and sneaking up behind her in the lineup is one of the most famous, and beautiful, mutants ever, MYSTIQUE! The mysterious blue-skinned mutant first appeared in the pages of Ms. Marvel in 1978, and ever since she’s been making waves. With the ability to shapeshift and mimic anyone, Mystique is incredibly powerful and dangerous. She puts her own interests above anyone else’s and at times has worked on the side of good as well as that of evil. Taking on her natural blue-skinned form, Mystique triumphantly appears in the Japanese Bishoujo (“pretty girl”) style based on an original character reinterpretation by renowned illustrator Shunya Yamashita.

Before he was the awesome Samuel L. Jackson, Nick Fury looked a lot like he does in this new Sidesshow statue– and we suppose he was pretty cool, too.
This latest addition to the line is a 16-inch Comiquette, featuring the original version of the character wielding his classic dual pistols–though he also has a switch-out hand in case you prefer he’d have a magnum revolver. Hand-painted and finished, it’s a limited edition statue that captures the character in a way that feels at once very old and very new.

Ready for the DANGER ROOM, X-Men’s GAMBIT looks stunning in this 11-inch fine art statue from Kotobukiya and Sideshow. Here’s the official write up on this pre-order, which will be shipping in December of this year.
A KOTOBUKIYA Japanese import! Next up in the amazing X-Men Danger Room Sessions Fine Art Statue series is the renowned Cajun thief and mutant hero GAMBIT! Born Remy Etienne LeBeau in New Orleans and kidnapped into the Thieves’ Guild, Gambit had to grow up tough and clever. Of course, his mutant powers also helped; he is able to charge objects with bio-kinetic energy. Gambit keeps an array of items with him that he can use in battle, but his signature weapons are his staff and a seemingly endless supply of playing cards. Despite, or because of, his troubled past and occasional relapses, Remy is one of the most popular characters in the Marvel Universe and an X-Man in good standing. Being a member of the team means that Gambit has seen his fair share of training exercises in the Danger Room. Ever since the early days of Marvel Comics’ mutant adventures, “X” teams have trained together in the ultra high tech facility known as the Danger Room, equipped with state of the art adaptive combat and athletics routines that challenge each participant in unique ways. The training facility has been featured prominently in X-Men comics over the years, as well as in various cartoons and the third X-Men film.
Always confident in the face of overwhelming odds, Gambit shows he’s ready for action in the midst of a particularly harrowing training session. Garbed in his unique metallic blue, purple, and silver costume, the X-Man stands tall in a battle-ready stance with his signature brown overcoat whipping in the air behind him. Gambit carries his two favorite weapons with his bo staff in his right hand and a trio of playing cards fully energized (via a stunning translucent pink effect) in his left. The mutant hero’s sculpt is top notch, bringing to life every element of his clothing and his athletic physique. Gambit’s wild hair erupts from the top of his open-faced cowl, while his face captures the character’s devil may care smile perfectly.
Sculpted by Erick Sosa, the “Ragin’ Cajun” stands 11 inches tall, in perfect 1/6th scale with the other Danger Room Sessions members (Wolverine, Psylocke, and Colossus). Also like them, Gambit is poised on a unique Danger Room holographic environment base. The wily and cocky Cajun has never looked cooler, and is the perfect addition to the Danger Room Sessions lineup!
