Minions Invasion with Minions Pop!

Minions Pop!s are searching for their new master! These creatures have a storied history, which can be seen in the sheer variety of costumes found here.

Whether they’re prehistoric like Cro-Minion, a seaward scallywag Eye, Matie, displaying the… majesty of nature like Au Naturel, or exhibiting modern complacency like Bored Silly Kevin, each Minion is full of their own bright personality!

Look at King Bob and swear your allegiance to his cuteness!

Diamond Select Toys and Marvelshop.com Announce Exclusive Marvel Select Hulkbuster Iron Man Action Figure!

In one of the most anticipated scenes in Marvel’s The Avengers: Age of Ultron, Tony Stark goes toe-to-toe with the Hulk in a massive new suit of Iron Man armor, one long-time comic readers may recognize. Dubbed the “Hulkbuster” armor, this massive suit was designed with one purpose in mind – stopping the Hulk in his tracks ­– and now Diamond Select Toys and marvelshop.com have teamed up to offer an exclusive figure of the famous armor as it appeared in the comics!

First appearing in Iron Man #304, released in 1994, the Iron Man Mk 14 “Hulkbuster” armor was an add-on to Tony Stark’s modular armor, one that would allow him to stop the Hulk from tearing apart a factory that was manufacturing gamma bombs. While the battle was a misunderstanding, Stark kept the armor in case he ever needed it again, and it has occasionally been shown as part of his “Hall of Armor.”

This new, fully poseable action figure was sculpted by Gentle Giant Studios, and stands 8.5 inches tall with 16 points of articulation. Like all Marvel Select action figures, he comes packaged in display-ready packaging with comic artwork down one side, for handy shelf reference.

Pre-orders are open now at marvelshop.com, and the figure will ship to customers later this summer. It will also be made available at Disney Stores across North America at that time, as well as on DisneyStore.com.

Unboxing: Marvel Collector Corps April 2015 Box

I open up to show off Funko and Marvel‘s first Marvel Collector Corps box. The bimonthly premium box service features a theme of Avengers: Age of Ultron just in time for the movie’s release.

We go over the contents including a t-shirt, exclusive Pop! figure, comic with variant cover and more! Valued at over a $50 the first box is an impressive debut.

The exclusive Hulkbuster Pop! figure has some weight and heft to it, the tshirt is really comfortable, the variant cover nice, and I’m still debating about opening up the Dorbz figure. It’s one I’m happy I signed up for the full year. Hopefully they’re all as impressive.

Power Up Box, the new Box on the Block

4470626-powerupboxPower Up Box is one of the newer premium blind box services out there, joining what feels like an ever growing list. The service has two tiers, one that provides 4-6 items in the box and the other premium one that has 6-9, and each has a t-shirt.

What really stands out when I’ve talked to folks at the company is their focus not just providing a box for us, but one we can give as a gift to others. Their gifting option is right there at the top of their site, clearly something they want to do that’s a bit different from others.

I’ve seen their service pop up a couple of times, and it was on my radar as a “geek box” to try out at some point, so I lucked out when I was offered a premium box to review. I have to say, the first box really blew me away. Something about it screams professional, starting with the large logo adorned box that arrives, but also the contents inside that you can see below.

With some boxes, I struggle to come up with the math that makes them seem worth it. Here, that wasn’t an issue, with some pricey items that felt like you were getting your money’s worth. Instead of one of Funko’s Pop! releases that seems to be in every other box from others, here you get the much higher quality Fabrikation version. But, if you want small, you also get a smaller keychain one too. Both cost decent cash and together almost make up for the entire price of the box. There was a cute tshirt I’d wear, a comic book, some candy, it all added up, and nothing really felt thrown in to take up space and make the box seem like a better value, which some other services have turned to doing. Everything here felt like quality.

This might have been my first Power Up Box, but hopefully it won’t be my last. You can check out the full unboxing below, and sound off in the comments if this is one we should continue to get in the future!

Power Up Box provided Graphic Policy with a FREE box for review.
