Ant-Man Gets an Exclusive Marvel Select Action Figure

Even though Ant-Man himself is relatively low to the ground, anticipation for his movie is higher than ever! With the uncanny ability to shrink in size and increase in strength, Ant-Man is poised to infiltrate the Marvel cinematic universe on July 17th, in his own feature film. And now Diamond Select Toys, marvelshop.com and the Disney Store are poised to release an exclusive Marvel Select action figure based on his film appearance!

Only available through marvelshop.com and the Disney Store, this new Marvel Select collector’s action figure of Unmasked Ant-Man measures 7 inches tall and comes with an exclusive interchangeable unmasked head of Scott Lang! It also includes a masked head, six interchangeable hands, and a tiny, 1.75-inch version of Ant-Man in his shrunken form! The figure was sculpted by Gentle Giant Studios, with 16 points of articulation, and comes in display-ready packaging with movie artwork down one side, for handy shelf reference.

Pre-orders are open at marvelshop.com, disneystore.com, and disneystore.eu. The figure will ship to customers later in July, at which point it will also be made available at Disney Store locations across North America and Europe.

Scott Lang first appeared in Marvel Comics as the thief who stole Dr. Hank Pym’s Ant-Man costume, planning to use it to commit crimes before becoming a hero and Avenger in his own right. In the new Ant-Man movie, Lang (played by Paul Rudd) and Pym (Michael Douglas) team up to prevent the Ant-Man technology from falling into the wrong hands.

Botcon 2015: Hasbro Reveals More Transformers Coming to Shelves

At this weekend’s Botcon, Hasbro revealed its upcoming Transformers releases for 2015 and early 2016. The releases include numerous waves for their Generations Combiner Wars line of toys that ties into the IDW Publishing comic series, as well as more figures from their Robots in Disguise line of figures.

The figures allow numerous figures who haven’t traditionally combined to be able to, playing off the current storyline.

Check out below for each of the coming waves.

Transformers Generations Combiner Wars

Wave 4

Out later in 2015… Galvatronus!? What Gestalt combination is this? The line of figures includes lots of classics updated including Ironhide, Starscream, Skywarp, Rodimus, Prowl, Mirage, Sunstreaker, and a new Optimus Prime dubbed “Binary Armor.”

Wave 1

Out in 2016, this first wave of the year features Bruticus, including Brawl, Blastoff, Swindle, Onslaught,and Vortex. There’s another version of Skywarp it looks like, as well as Buzzsaw, Chopshop, and Pipes. But even better…. Shockwave!

Wave 2

The second wave for 2016 features a new combiner named Sky Reign. It’s made up of the various releases for this wave except one it looks like. Sky Reign features Hound, Smokescreen, Trailbreaker, Wheeljack, and Skylynx. Wreckgar is also being released!

Robot in Disguise

There’s a line of figures featuring Alpine, Night Ops, Sideswipe, Gold Armor Grimlock and Night Ops Bumblbee, and another Bumblebee with a slightly different color scheme than currently on the show.

Tiny Titans

No idea what these are, but it looks like a new line of figures with a rather cool look to them.

If you’re a fan of Transformers, it looks like Hasbro will continue to drain your wallet well into 2016. There’s quite a few figures I’d love to get.
