There’s plenty of new product to discuss this week including more from Funko, a new series of Marvel Legends and more. As I write this I have just finished receiving some new POP figures from what will most likely be the biggest film of the year: Star Wars: The Force Awakens. We have a First Order Snowtrooper and new character Rey added to our growing Star Wars POPs selection. We also have the Chewbacca Wacky Wobbler available. Non Star Wars POPs just in include the entire Superbad line, Columbia from Rocky Horror Picture Show, and a new Arkham video game Harley Quinn vinyl.
DC Collectibles has two brand new figures out this week from their Arrow and Flash TV lines. Joining his Arrow cohorts Oliver Queen and Sara Lance will be the John Diggle figure based on the likeness of actor David Ramsey with multiple points of articulation and a gun accessory. The Flash line sees Barry Allen’s nemesis Leonard Snart aka Captain Cold in figure form based on Wentworth Miller’s likeness. If you are looking for Arrow figures we still have Dark Archer, Deadshot and Canary in stock as of this writing. ReAction figures of Flash, Captain Cold, Canary, Deathstroke and Dark Archer are also available. More DC goodness is on the way with the release of the Injustice Superman S.H. FiguArts from Bandai based on the video game of the same name.
The newest Marvel Legends wave arrived last week and we’ve gotten a few more in this week. This is the Hulkbuster series which features plenty of first time figures as well as updates on certain characters. New figures include Thundra and Blizzard plus updates on Valkyrie, Dr Strange and the Vision. Iron Man in his Marvel Now armor and a Don Cheadle War Machine figure round out the wave. We’ve still got Ant Man Legends in stock as well as a handful of figures from a few of the most recent series.
On a final note, I wanted to mention the passing of Jack Larson who played Superman’s Pal, Jimmy Olsen on the 1950s Adventures of Superman TV show. I watched the show when I was very young and it ran on WWOR Channel 9, so I don’t remember much about it. Jack would also make appearances on later Superman-related shows during the 90s. He was 87. RIP Jack. Catch everyone next week!
