Here is the official PR:

McFarlane Toys, a trailblazer in the world of action figures and collectibles, proudly announces a landmark collaboration with Marvel. Through this collaboration, Todd McFarlane’s iconic Marvel artwork will be brought to life in a collection of posed figures, available in both 1:10 and 1:6 scales. It’s a pivotal moment, marking the first time Todd McFarlane, CEO/Founder of McFarlane Toys, will turn some of his own Marvel drawings into stunning 3D detail, offering fans an unparalleled opportunity to own a piece of comic book history.

The 1:10th scale posed figures will celebrate the enduring legacy of Marvel Comics and the legendary artists behind its characters. The inaugural wave features figures inspired by the artistry of Todd McFarlane, Jim Lee, Steve Ditko, John Romita Jr., and Rob Liefeld and showcases iconic characters such as Spider-Man, Wolverine, Iron Man, and Deadpool. Each figure is based upon some of Marvel Comics’ most memorable covers and will be set within an environmental base and includes a diorama backdrop to complete the final presentation.

Additionally, the 1:6th scale figures honor Todd McFarlane’s innovative contributions during his historic tenure at Marvel Comics. The debut figures recreate McFarlane’s Captain America pose from the iconic cover of The Amazing Spider-Man #323 and a Spider-Man figure, also from McFarlane’s classic Amazing Spider-Man run on the title. These figures feature a comic reprint and are mounted on environmental bases with a diorama backdrop, inviting fans to step into the pages of some of their favorite Marvel adventures.

Todd McFarlane, who revolutionized the comic book industry in the late ‘80s and early ‘90s, expressed his excitement about the collaboration, stating, “For literally decades, thousands of Marvel fans and fans of my McFarlane Toys have deluged me with requests of wanting to see a Marvel and McFarlane Toys collaboration. Thanks to the invaluable support and collaboration from Marvel in making these new products a reality, I will now get this wonderful opportunity to not only be able to produce statue-like figures based upon my own artwork (who wouldn’t jump at the chance to turn their own 2-D drawings into 3-D reality?), but I will also have the great pleasure of being able to create products based upon some of the amazingly talented peers in our wonderful comic book industry. As fun as it will be to play with some of my own artwork, I am really looking forward to developing figures based upon the finest creators in comics. Get ready, everyone!”

This collection is slated for release this summer, offering fans and collectors an opportunity to own highly detailed figures inspired by Todd McFarlane’s legendary artwork.

Will need to make room in my desk for that Iron Man. Maybe I'm biased, but I kinda like it more than the rest. Being a piece from the 70s, it feels more evergreen than the other statues, which are very late-80s-to-90s. That being said, I wouldn't mind either if they adapted some cover featuring the Modular Armor in all of its 90s shading glory some time down the line.

Oh...oh my.

I questioned how that Wolverine cover would translate, but it looks fantastic!

Is it too much to ask for all four covers with ALL of the X-Men (and Magneto)?

I also wonder how the Romita Jr would look in 3D.

It be cool if all the X-Men and Magneto were done and also done in a way they could all link up and recreate the four covers.

No interest in Statues, but It kinda blows my mind Marvel would let Todd make Marvel things, This would have been ground breaking and a huge Awe moment if these were actually articulated figures, Just for the culture it would be crazy bananas to see Todd make Marvel figures.

I would have been more excited if it was figures of the Amalgam characters.
