SPIDER-MANDATE: The Lowe-down on "Secret Wars," Tie-Ins and Stacey Lee
Despite some initial concerns among fans, it turns out that Funko will release a Black Widow figure as part of its previously announced Avengers: Age of Ultron Pop! Vinyl series.
Arriving in May, with new batons in hand, Natasha joins Iron Man, Captain America, Thor, Hulk, Hawkeye, Vision and Ultron (plus the Hulkbuster offered exclusively through the new Marvel Collector Corps). There’s still no sign of Quicksilver and Scarlet Witch, however.
On the heels of a leak that some speculate could be a savage spoiler for Marvel’s Avengers sequel, Funko has officially released its lineup of merchandise for Age of Ultron that features just about all of the central characters … except Quicksilver and Scarlet Witch.
The new Pop Vinyl! figures includes Ultron, The Vision and Hawkeye, plus new versions of Iron Man, Captain America, Thor and the Hulk, while the Mystery Minis boast new fewer than four variations of Iron Man, in addition to Black Widow, Nick Fury, The Vision, et al. But, yeah, no Quicksilver or Scarlet Witch.
If all supervillains were as adorable as the ones in the next wave of Funko’s Marvel Guardians of the Galaxy Pop! Vinyl figures, we wouldn’t mind the mayhem and destruction as much.
Arriving in March, the Bobble-Heads include 3.75-inch versions of Yondu, Ronan, Nebula and The Collector, plus a 6-inch tall Thanos Super-Sized Pop! Vinyl figure. Because, y’know, he’s the Mad Titan.
They join Funko’s previously announced Guardians figures: Star-Lord, Gamora, Drax, Groot, Rocket Racoon, Dancing Baby Groot and Howard the Duck.
For X-Men fans nostalgic for the 1990s — those halcyon days when Storm was clad in white and yellow, Cyclops was fitted with unnecessary straps, and Colossus still sported pointy shoulder-thingies — Funko is releasing a line of Marvel Classic X-Men Pop! Vinyl bobble-heads.
Available in November, the set features 3.75-inch figures of the aforementioned Cyclops, Storm and Colossus, plus Professor X, Magneto and Mystique, all in their ’90s finest. You can check them all out below.
Only days after the debut of Hasbro’s Guardians of the Galaxy action figures, as part of its Marvel Legends series, the Funko POP! Vinyl line has emerged in the wild — at Toy Fair in New York City, naturally.
Planned for summer release, ahead of director James Gunn’s film, the POP! Vinyls feature Drax the Destroyer, Gamora, Rocket Raccoon, Groot and Star-Lord (sorry once again, Yondu fans). Marvel Toy News has more photos and many more details.
