Note: Marvelicious Toys’ enhanced podcasts are now full HD video podcasts! Read all about it in Arnie’s blog post.
Marvel action figure collectors, we hope you didn’t spend all your cash on the holidays because Hasbro has started shipping tons of new figures! 6-inch Marvel Legends figures tying into The Amazing Spider-Man 2 and Captain America 2: The Winter Soldier are now hitting pegs, months before the corresponding movies will come out. Plus the 4-inch figure lines for both movies are also showing up! On this issue of Marvelicious Toys Marjorie, Justin, and Arnie run down all the new toys being released. Plus you can hear in-depth, hands on reviews of the first wave of Amazing Spider-Man 2 Legends including Superior Spider-Man, Black Cat, Carnage, Beetle, and the movie-based Electro and Spider-Man!
But not all the new Hasbro products fit the existing figure lines. Also showing up en masse are Hasbro’s Marvel Superhero Mashers. Want a Spider-Man head on a Hulk body with Hawkeye’s arms? This toy line allows you to mix and match the body parts and accessories of your favorite heroes. The hosts give a review of these items and say if they are fun for kids, adults, or anyone!
With a rundown of clearance sales, new blind boxed Marvel toys from Funko, high end releases from Sideshow, and one last release of figures from Hasbro’s cancelled Marvel Universe line, it’s all in this jam-packed VIDEO issue of the Marvelicious Toys podcast!
