Marvel News Tip Hotline

Recommended Posts

I am creating this section for people who would like to help out with news. If you see something Marvel newsworthy you think other readers might be interested in for us to report, post it here. It can be anything from action figures, movie, TV, comics or video games. We do ask that you try to include the original source for the news with a link when you post about it. If you don't know the original source then please indicate that as well. If we use the news on the main site we will be sure to credit you for the heads up, assuming it's not something we've already reporter.

Posts in this thread will also count towards the forum contest for $100 store credit.

oh this a good idea. Though I worry that some will post news or rumour that they have no backup for. I also think that this thread should be used for images of figure IF you have gotten them earlier then others.

yes this is a marvel forum. I'm sure if you went to the other sites (ie Tformers.com) they have the same thread.

Yes. If its non-marvel head over to Toynewsi.com. We have a similar section there for non-marvel stuff.

If someone has images they can certainly post images here, that would certainly be news. Also we ask to try and provide a link to your source. If someone posted a completely bogus rumor then it will be ignored.

IDK, but I do ask you keep posts here related to reporting current relevant news. Questions like that should be posted in the general Marvel Legends section of the forums.

My guess is it will be back, just not on Netflix.

Hey guys! How about this leak

Can't really see the figures, but we can tell that is that basic 6 inch line. However the different costumes can be seen, like the Thor and Rocket two pack that leaked a week ago.

Hey guys. Just saw this now at a Brazilian website. Haven't seen any news anywhere else or any comments. Diamond Select Toys has done this before several times, so it might be true. 

Honestly, seems like a bootleg or a custom. But I can't identify which figure this might be based on. 

I sent them a message and I am waiting for confirmation. 

 

I present to you Marvel Select Iron Man Mark 50 exclusive to Disney Store.

Whoa that is awesome. It does look legit too. Hard to tell though. Because on EBay they have those big select size Iron mans that are bootleg. And you would think Diamond would’ve mentioned this at NYCC. At the very least if there was a leak wouldn’t it be packaged versions of Cap or Thor? Hmmm IDK but I want it!

In my recent memory they have released Thor and Spider Man without any notice or previous figure shown. The same was done to Thanos. The Big difference in all of these situations is hat the figures were all comic based.

I guess what is different is the light.  The pictures come from the same site. 

If they are bootlegs are well done and even the package looks nice. They could be from China were they make the figures. There is one famous bootleg that is the Mark 43. That one is nothing more than a Mark 42 repainted, but comes with some fun accessories that were made for this figure like the unmasked head and two infinity gauntlets.  The head is actually very well made. The package looks very similar to a real Marvel Select. But again they had a figure to star from. 

The last one that they released was two years ago the Mark46 from Civil War and this one does not seem to be the same figure because the articulation scheme is different. Mainly on the lower part of the figure. 

 

But there are a lot of good forgeries out there and some customizers do make good jobs. We also live in the Fake News era, so we must question everything that we hear or see when is not from a reliable source.

Thanks for the heads up. I believe its the same figure just different lightening.

I really like the colors on the rescue armor. This also could be a ruse to throw us off. Like they promoted Hulk alot in the movie but he was only in it for 10 minutes at most.

Cool thanks!  Well that answers that mystery. It’s not Nebula like I thought but it is indeed Pepper Potts like others guessed. Good look.

    • Szamszantos sends us in-hand images for the new Marvel Legends 6" Spider-Man Kingpin Build-A-Figure wave from Hasbro. He lets us know the wave has started to show up already in the Philippines. The wave is expected to start showing up here in the US by the end of this year or first thing in January. The wave includes figures of Puma, 6-Arm Spider-Man, Red Goblin, Black Cat, Modern Symbiote Spider-Man, Silver Sable and Night Thrasher. This wave is currently available for pre-order at Megalopolis.Toys.
    • I had the previous version and preordered this new one mainly for the chromed wings, I wasnt expecting to like this figure much more than the first release (I thought the first one was good enough) and from pictures, the flat red/pink color didnt seem right but once I got this new one I really liked it, I still think the previous one is a good figure but in IMO this new one is just a little better, with the more vibrant colors he fits in better with the rest of my x-men, the feet and hands change also make this figure look more like archangel, and the interchangeable heads (even though they are all repaints) are a great bonus, I ended up putting the new one in my X-men display and using the old one as Death next to Apocalypse (within my x-men villians display), Im not sure if Ill try to repaint the Helmeted Death head or try on a different way (before this was anounced I had a Taskmaster head lying around, the silver one with the white hood that came with the more modern Task, I was thinking of modding to make a Death helmet head, I might end up going that way just so I dont mess up the hasbro one)
    • Really loving this wave! And I noticed they didn’t provide a box images with Jude Laws Character. Interesting. I know a lot of people are saying he is Yon-Rogg(Funko), but I’m still holding out hope that he is Mar- Vell! Because you can’t have Captain Marvel without Mar-Vell and Jude seems like he’s be perfect to play him! I just think Yon-Rogg might be a misdirection or something. (Hopefully)  Please Marvel let Jude Law be Mar-Vell!!!!! Lol
    • So many figres to choose from, among my most liked figures not counting the BAF's or re-releases, are (in that order): Cable, Elektra, Bishop, Mysterio, Omega Red and Silver Surfer. 

      But my top 3 have to be Tiger Stripe Wolverine, The Thing and 90's Deadpool

       
    • Great review the figure looks nice, a little on the large side, I was hoping I could fudge it in my normal Marvel legends display but he looks a bit big, still a nice looking figure, oh well thats 100 bucks ill be saving (or rather spending on other figures jaja)

        The face flap thing they have is a cool feature but yeah this being a figure inspired on the classic Iron Man armor it would have been better to have a unmasked Tony Stark Head (If I remember correctly in this armor his helmet was a whole piece he took off entirely) plus the tony head under the helmet looks a little off, though I understand they probably went this way to cut costs knowing they were already packing in all the accesories and the light up feature, an extra head probably would have raised the production price a little bit.
