Refusing to take sides in the conflict, Merchoid has followed that Captain America hoodie with the debut of a limited-edition Iron Man Mark 46 zip-up sweatshirt.
Part of the online retailer’s Captain America: Civil War collection, the Iron Man Mark 46 hoodie modeled after Tony Stark’s armor from the upcoming Marvel Studios sequel. Red with gold accents, the sweatshirt features a silver panel styled after Iron Man’s arc reactor, and thumb holes in the sleeves — presumably to mimic the gauntlets.
If there’s one member of Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy you don’t want to provoke, it’s undoubtedly Drax the Destroyer. Nevertheless, Hot Toys has teased its Drax 1/6th-scale action figure for quite a while, leading fans to wonder whether it would ever be released. But now, finally, the Hong Kong-based toymaker has revealed official photos and details for the collectible, which will enable collectors to complete their Guardians of the Galaxy lineup.
SH Figuarts’ “Captain America: Civil War” line has added an Ant-Man figure to its roster — sporting the character’s costume he’ll be wearing in the Captain America threequel.
The Scott Lang/Ant-Man figure comes with a more streamlined helmet than the one we saw in the “Ant-Man” movie last summer, and features more prominent red striping around the side of his legs, along with bracers on the forearms.
To top it off, the figure comes with a miniaturized 15 mm tall version as an accessory.

If you liked the previous Deadpool promo, you’ll probably enjoy this one, which features a fun cameo at the end.

Ippudo, New York City’s premier ramen shop, will open the doors of its secret second-floor Ramen Bar for two days this week for an official, one-of-a-kind Marvel pop-up.
Held Thursday and Friday at Ippudo Westside (321 W. 51st St.), the even will feature Ramen Master Fumihiro Kanegae’s newest creation, “The Avengers Interactive Ramen.” There’s a catch, however: Just 40 bowls will be served at 5 p.m. each day, meaning it’s a pretty exclusive meal.
We’ve seen Wayne Manor, the Baxter Building and Tony Stark’s many bachelor pads depicted in countless Marvel and DC comic books over the decades. However, in “Interheroes,” illustrator and architect Federico Babina offers a look at the stylish homes of superheroes if they were decorated to reflect their costumed identities.
Factory Entertainment has brought a fan-favorite moment from the 2013 video game to near life with its Deadpool — Rocket Ride Premium Motion Statue.
As you might expect with the Merc With a Mouth, the company’s listing is absolutely filled with innuendo, like “Standing fully erect at a colossal 10 inches high” and “Deadpool’s red rocket gracefully sways back and forth simulating a sky rocket in flight, sure to delight fans eager for further stimulation that regular statues cannot provide.” You get the picture.
It’s can be difficult for a sleeper agent with a taste for bling to find jewelry that says both “Stylish!” and “Hail Hydra!” without drawing too much unwanted attention. Luckily, What’s Your Passion Jewelry is here to help.
The company offers a line of licensed Marvel jewelry, including the Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.D. Hydra Ring ($225). To the casual observer, it’s the silver-and-gold ring given to all new agents of the organization. However, when you’re in more trusted company, you can remove the jewelry to reveal the emblem of Hydra.
Noting a serious lack of geek-themed hardware, Dave Delisle came up with an idea for a tool set to tackle virtually any home-repair project in the Nine Realms, even the famed clogged drains of Jotunheim.
As you can see, the Thor Hammer Tool Kit looks like the fabled Mjolnir, until it’s opened to reveal a claw hammer, wrench, screwdriver, socket set and so on.
Never mind those 3.75-inch and 6-inch action figures, Hasbro is upsizing its Marvel Legends line with a series of 12-inch collectibles, debuting this fall with Captain America and Iron Man from Captain America: Civil War.
As Toybox notes, this would seem to be a bid by Hasbro to tap into the high-end market serviced by Hot Toys and other companies. However, these fully articulated figures won’t come with the high-end price tag: They’re expected to sell for about $50 each.
It was inevitable that the Internet’s raison d’être (funny cat photos) would cross paths with our current obsession (Ryan Reynolds’ Deadpool), but we’re just glad we were around to witness it. Ladies and gentlemen, allow us to introduce … Catpool.
With the premiere of Captain America: Civil War now less than two months away, Hot Toys has unveiled its new Captain America and Winter Soldier 1/6th-scale collectible figures from the Marvel sequel.
Standing a little more than 12 inches tall, each movie-accurate figure features 30 points of articulation, with Captain America boasting a newly developed body, and Winter Soldier sporting a newly sculpted head, and a new chrome-colored left arm.
A judge has ruled that a lawsuit over the design for the “Iron Man” armor — which prosecutors Ben Lai and Ray Lai say is based on designs from their independent comic, “Radix” — has no place in the Massachusetts courts.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, Disney and Marvel are protected from the lawsuit because state-level judge Denise Casper has decided the matter doesn’t belong in the Massachusetts courts. Casper said, “…the claims lack relatedness to his state with no specific allegations tying transactions, creations or marketing to Massachusetts.”
