A detailed look at Marvel Steelbook collecting, as well as a hands on review of 3D Plus Me figures and a rundown of new collectibles!
With Captain America: The Winter Soldier and X-Men: Days of Future Past Marvel movie collectors have seen their share of variant covers and exclusive gimmicks. But for the hard core movie collectors the best versions aren't available in the states. The collectible rage overseas is steelbooks! Exclusive, limited edition cases only available in Europe and Asia can cost a pretty penny for American fans, but it's a price many are willing to pay. What makes these so sought after? From the UK, Star Wars Action News reporter and Marvel movie collector Steve "The Gingerprince", reports in with a review of several of the best Steelbooks!
Also on this week's episode Marjorie, Arnie, and Justin have been scanned--by 3D Plus Me! At San Diego Comic-Con the hosts had their heads imaged for custom statues putting their heads on Marvel characters from Black Widow to Iron Man to M.O.D.O.K. Now the company has partnered with Hasbro for Super Awesome Me--custom face scans put atop an articulated Hasbro Titan figure of Captain America or Iron Man. Marjorie and Arnie saw the figures in person at New York Comic-Con, and the hosts all have some of their SDCC statues in hand. Should you seek out 3D Plus Me at their next convention appearance? Listen for a detailed review of these statues!
With a report on a new Hot Toys X-man, a classic Spider-Man maquette, and so much more, it's all in this issue of Marvelicious Toys!
And stay tuned next week for a bonus episode where the hosts run down all the reveals from New York Comic-Con!
