USA Today offers a first look at just some of the products on the horizon featuring the well-received new wall-crawler (played by Tom Holland), ranging from the LEGO Marvel Super Heroes “Tanker Truck Takedown” set (which also includes minifigs of Captain America, Vision and Hawkeye) to Hasbro’s Civil War Miniverse pack, which will feature Spider-Man alongside Black Panther, Cap, Black Widow, Falcon, War Machine, Iron Man and Ant-Man.

All this Tony Stark action figure is missing is a tiny glass of scotch

tony-stark1-social

We’ve seen more than our fair share of Iron Man action figures (seriously, let’s dial just a smidge), but Tony Stark? That’s as rare as a unicorn … a bearded, wisecracking unicorn. However, Bandai is about to change that with this upcoming release from the S.H. Figuarts Iron Man 3 line.

Yes, that Marvel Studios sequel came out three years ago, but we’re not complaining, because instead of the umpteenth armored variant, we’re getting the billionaire philanthropist playboy himself!

Watch Tony Hale & Adam Pally Fight for Glory in Funny or Die’s ‘Captain America: Civil War Re-Enactors’

CWreMain

#TeamCap and #TeamIronMan just drafted their worst recruits.

In a sketch that honors the Merry Marvel manner of Not Brand Ecch, comedy stars Tony Hale and Adam Pally play a pair of committed Civil War re-enactors hellbent on breathing life into the conflict between Steve Rogers and Tony Stark through a dramatic re-staging of events. The epic, 13-minute send-up eschews fandom at its silliest, delusion at its finest, passions at their strongest, and uniforms at their saggiest.

TshirtSocial

At this point, nearly every comic fan owns at least one piece of clothing featuring the work of legendary artists like Jack Kirby or José Luis García-López. But finding apparel that matches the aesthetic of modern comics has been harder to come by.

Each Wednesday (natch), the site will post a new series of cover print shirts for purchase at $15 each. The current crop includes Andre Aruajo’s cover to Spidey #5, David Lopez’s Ms. Marvel #6 and a bevy of others.
