Tomopop Review: Funko's Marvel Mystery Minis Loki photo
Tomopop Review: Funko's Marvel Mystery Minis Loki
by Scarecroodle

Funko easily ranks among the top makers of blind-boxed collectibles, and it's easy to see why with exciting entries such as the Marvel Mystery Minis series. This time around Funko has released a regular version of the series (which can be found at all the usual retailers) as well as a Hot Topic exclusive version.

Today we'll be taking a closer look at one of the figures you might find in a box (if you're REALLY lucky, that is!), the ultra-rare Loki with staff.

Full review after the jump.

Avengers figma Iron Man has us in Mark 7 heaven photo
Avengers figma Iron Man has us in Mark 7 heaven
by Martin Siggers

We've already had the God of Thunder drop in on us, but now it's time for the second in Max Factory's range of Avengers figmas to take flight. Surprising no-one, it's noted beard-and-moustache connoisseur, enthusiastic drinker, and occasional superhero Tony Stark, aka Iron Man.

Iron Man's depicted in his 'Mark 7' armour which he dons in the latter part of The Avengers, a chunky, classically styled suit. No mincing words, this figma looks absolutely stunning. The sharp, clean armour lines, the outstanding red-and-gold-paintjob, the perfectly integrated joints (always an advantage of robotic-style figures)...it's A grade stuff from top to bottom. There's also the tempting option of the 'Full Spec.' version. Exclusive to the Good Smile Online Shop, it adds extra parts to depict his wrist-mounted missiles and rocket backpack, while also including an extra head which shows off the man underneath the machine.

The problem here is the same one which popped up with Thor, which is price. figma Iron Man will cost a breathtaking ¥7,800, while the Full Spec. version clocks in at ¥8,800. No two ways about it, that's a LOT of money, especially for something as small as a figma. It's also worth pointing out that (probably due to licencing issues) they aren't listed on the international GSC Shop page, so you'll have to navigate through the Japanese store. If you remain unfazed, Iron Man lands this August, and you can pre-order him by clicking below.

First wave of Marvel Universe follow-up revealed

Previously we've mentioned that Hasbro's 3.75-inch Marvel Universe line was being replaced by a new 3.75-inch Avengers-themed series (which we've since learned will be called the Marvel Infinite Series). There's been some news since then, but this marks the first time that we've seen the wave 1 line-up in the new packaging and... the packaging is something of a step back. Hit the jump for details.

Hot Toys brings out another Loki, fans everywhere cheer! photo
Hot Toys brings out another Loki, fans everywhere cheer!
by Rio McCarthy

Alright guys and gals, if you didn't get enough of my fangirling over Loki the last time, here he comes again! Hot Toys is releasing a new figure of Loki based on the look from Thor: The Dark World. Cheeky Loki looks a bit more devious and upset this time around. He has over 30 points of articulation in this body as well!

He has 6 interchangeable hands, including: 1 pair of partially clenched palms, 1 pair of relaxed palms, 1 right palm for holding the dagger, and 1 left open palm. He, of course, comes with his full costume, as well as the previously mentioned dagger. He also comes with a pair of handcuffs with chains, legcuffs with chains, and a neck collar with chains. Looks like I'm not the only one who likes herself some Loki in devious ways. There is also the stand and nameplate that have the movie logo. Now, there is a special edition, only available in certain markets, that comes with a bonus accessory of a 1/6th scale Aether. It hasn't been listed as of yet as to where those markets are, but I'm sure we'll see.

He's set to come out somewhere in the later half of 2014, so get those pocketbooks ready and start saving. I personally like the first Loki figure better, and he's standing sexily among my figure collection. However, if you didn't get him the first time around, he'll be coming back to see you!
