Hasbro is actually going to be releasing some of their notorious-for-never-coming-out Marvel Legends variant figures. Ebay listings have turned up for the Spider-Man Marvel Legends Boomerang, Toxin and Spider-Girl figures, confirming that these figures are in fact currently in production and should be released in a few months time…hopefully in March of 2014.
Sculpted by Gentle Giant! Actress Natalie Portman reprises her role as Dr. Jane Foster in Thor: The Dark World this fall, and Diamond Select Toys has teamed up with Gentle Giant to capture her on-screen look! Sculpted in a 7-inch scale with 16 points of articulation, the figure depicts Foster as she appears in the new film, with detailed sculpting and paint as well as an exacting likeness of Portman. The figure will come packaged with a detailed base that combines with Thor’s to re-create a scene from the film. Comes in display-ready Select packaging, complete with side panel art.
The newest addition to Nintendo’s popular Metroid series, comes a figma of the main character, Samus Aran! Using the smooth yet poseable joints of figma, you can act out a variety of different scenes. A flexible plastic is used which allows proportions to be kept without compromising posability. Various extras are included, such as the popular “Morph Ball,” two different beam effects, and a different part to pose her shooting missiles. She comes five different hand parts for her left hand, including an open hand, a gripped close hand and the famous “thumbs-up” hand. A poseable figma stand is included, which allows various poses to be taken.
From Square Enix! From the 2013 film Man of Steel, written and produced by Christopher Nolan and directed by Zack Snyder, come Superman, the Man of Steel himself, and General Zod, the former Kryptonian soldier who burns for revenge, to the Play Arts ~KAI~ action figure line! Superman comes with interchangeable hands and a display stand.
After 35 years of fantastic plastic standing tall in pop culture at 3¾ inches, Hasbro is releasing the Star Wars Black Series this year, beginning a new set of 6-inch figures that will feature more articulation and an increased attention to detail.
Eight figures are planned for 2013 – Hasbro will primarily draw characters from the original Star Wars trilogy of films while also bringing in key players from the prequels.
The first wave of four, just out now, includes Luke Skywalker in his X-Wing Fighter flight suit, fan-favorite droid R2-D2, bad guy Darth Maul and an Imperial Sandtrooper.
