Tomopop Review: DST's Marvel Select Amazing Spidey 2 Spider-Man

The Amazing Spider-Man 2 was the somewhat lukewarm follow-up to Sony's Spider-Man reboot. The film notably improved on Spider-Man's costume, giving movie-goers something closer to what they were used to, while jumping all ove...

Diamond Select Comics recently posted details about its collectibles coming out in 2015, which include the Marvel Select Carnage, the MechaGodzilla vinyl bank, a Pathfinder Goblin, a 80s/90s X-Men Minimates series (which includes Jubilee), a Star Trek Select Worf, and others.

The MS Carnage has come up quite a few times in conversation on Tomopop, but since he's now available for pre-order this may be the last time you hear his name until after he's been released. As mentioned in our NYCC coverage, Carnage will come with two interchangeable heads (including a partially unmasked Cletus Kasady) and multiple interchangeable hands. He can be pre-ordered for around US$25 and is slated for a January release.

One of the more surprising entries (ie, something that I missed) was Marvel Minimates Series 60 which consists of 80s and 90s X-Men characters. The series notably features such Brotherhood members as Avalanche, Blob, Pyro, and Destiny as well as X-Men like Jubilee, Forge, and Psylocke (some via interchangeable parts). The Jubilee and Destiny 2-pack will apparently be the rarest of the bunch but you can snag her and the rest if you just buy the set from Entertainment Earth for US$30.

Other items include the Star Trek Select Worf, the classic Batman tv series Joker vinyl bank bust, a really expensive Flux Capacitor replica from Back to the Future, a Sin City Marv vinyl bank bust, the 12-inch MechaGodzilla vinyl bank, the Pathfinder goblin vinyl bank, some Pulp Fiction Minimates featuring a bloodied Jules and Vincent, and some non-figure items.

For additional details (and pre-orders) for those other items, check out DST's site. Otherwise check out the photos in the gallery.

Wacky Wobblers line gets a little crazy with Harley Quinn and Deadpool photo
Wacky Wobblers line gets a little crazy with Harley Quinn and Deadpool
by Scarecroodle

Funko's Wacky Wobblers line just got a little crazier with the addition of Deadpool and Harley Quinn.

The Joker's sidekick/love interest is depicted with her trusty, trademark mallet (accept no baseball bat substitutes) and looks fairly neat in bobblehead form. Deadpool, on the other hand, stands with his sword at the ready in one hand while the other is in a thumbs up position. It's great for knowing that whatever you're doing at the moment, Deadpool approves. How can you go wrong with that kind of encouragement?

Funko's Wacky Wobbler Deadpool is slated for a November release while Harley Quinn is set to follow in January. Get ready to go nuts.

A big Hikari Groot may be big news photo
A big Hikari Groot may be big news
by Scarecroodle

The Guardians of the Galaxy have finally made their way into Funko's Hikari line with a Premium (ie, over-sized) Groot. At 10-inches tall, he's kind of a big deal. Plus, with a sizable 5,000 piece run, there should be enough Groot to go around for everybody.

Groot appears in what I can only assume is a standard deco (since he lacks a moniker). It's a neat enough design with a good mix of color that should please fans. I'm just wondering if we might eventually see a Hikari Mini line with a Rocket Raccoon to go next to him (or a standard-sized Rocket Racoon, for that matter).

Hikari Groot can be pre-ordered for US$80 and is slated for a January release. As always, you can win one through Funko's Facebook contest. This week's question is, " What would you do to win a Groot Hikari Premium figure?!" (Maybe ask nicely?)

DST's bloody cool Bleeding Edge Iron Man available for order photo
DST's bloody cool Bleeding Edge Iron Man available for order
by Scarecroodle

Diamond Select Toys' Marvel.com and Disney-exclusive Marvel Select Iron Man is currently available for order through and will be available through Marvel.com the Disney Store later this month.

The 7-inch tall figure is billed as having 16 points of articulation and apparently sports an incredibly shiny paint job. He comes with a large display base depicting what appears to be a severed plane wing. By placing Bleeding Edge Iron Man at the top of the plume of smoke, it looks like the figure has punched his way through the wing.

Apparently debuting in Invincible Iron Man #25, the Mark 38 armor consists of millions of nano-machines stored inside Tony Stark's body, which exit through the pores of his skin using repulsor technology to form a protective layer over his entire body. As such, when Tony's not wearing the suit the suit apparently wears him.

DST's Marvel Select Bleeding Edge Iron Man can be ordered for US$25. Be sure to check out the photo gallery for additional images.

NYCC 2014: Kotobukiya up close

You probably got the gist of the Kotobukiya booth offerings by now, but why settle for the gist? Andres was able to get up close to the figures for some super-size shots. I thought I knew what we'd be seeing, but was pleasant...

Kotobukiya unveiled its previously teased Marvel Bishoujo She-Hulk at NYCC (check out our coverage!), which has now been followed by a preview gallery, and... yes, it's pretty good, but what were they thinking with that face? From many angles, it looks even more out of place than the average Bishoujo face.

Granted, if you're a fan of Shunya's general style then it's something that may not bother you. However, I was impressed by how well the overall design turned out... and then I saw her face (it's also why I didn't go for a close-up in the header image). Kotobukiya has allegedly cowed to fan pressure in the past so I suppose anything can happen.

Spider-Man, Catwoman, and Iron Man will be the newest inductions to Square-Enix's Variant Play Arts Kai line and are some of the most exciting designs to grace the line. If that wasn't enough, fans can look forward to a Final Fantasy Creatures Kai set (featuring Siren, one of the Bahumuts, etc), the recently announced PAK Hatsune Miku, many historical Batmans, and so much more.

The major highlight here might be the VPAK Spider-Man, which sports what may be a very neat armored design. That certainly doesn't take anything away from Catwoman, however, whose crazy design I didn't even recognize at first. Oh, and what's that? An awesome set of optional attachments for VPAK Iron Man? Could there really be this much want all in one place?

Be sure to check out the gallery for a closer look.

NYCC 2014: Kotobukiya drops some bombs at their panel

Andres is on the ground at NYCC (having the time of his life, I'm sure) and was able to get a part of the sweet action at Kotobukiya's panel. Usually at US events, Kotobukiya's emphasis is more on properties that western coll...
