  1. For today we start off with a rumor stating the Thunderbolts will be making their debut in the MCU sometime during the new Disney+ Falcon and Winter Solider series. This rumor seemingly stems from a guy named Daniel Richtman who actually tried to get people to pay in order to read this rumor through his Patreon account. That of course didn't stop all the gossip sites from circulating the news for free, including CBR which is where I first saw this rumor reported. While I am not sure there is really any basis of truth in this rumor, it would certainly make for a logical place to introduce a team like this. In the comics, the Thunderbolts were a group of super villains lead by Baron Zemo who all pretended to be super heroes. Eventually most of the members actually did become heroes. We know for fact that Baron Zemo (Daniel Brühl) will be featured heavily in the new Disney+ series, as will USAgent (Wyatt Russell) who has also had ties to the Thunderbolts in the past. Even Winter Soldier (Sebastian Stan) at one time in the comics lead the team. So if I was a betting man, I would say the odds are at least in favor of this rumor panning out sooner or later. Our second rumor for you today is actually an image which showed up on social media. Supposedly this blurry image is Eternals promo art of Richard Madden as the character Ikaris. Things like this can easily be faked, so it's hard to know if this is legit or not. If it is fake, the real thing will probably look pretty similar.
  2. In celebration of the Chinese New Year, Disney has released a number of movie posters that were inspired by the Chinese festival. Two of the posters released were for the upcoming Black Widow and Eternals movies coming out this year. Check out the images which come via Yahoo below.

  6. There is no doubt Toy Photography has become a big part of the action figure collecting hobby. More and more, you see fantastic photos on the Internet showing people's action figures doing incredible things. Everything from participating in incredible battle-like scenes to sitting down around the TV enjoying a pizza or drinking a beer. The action figures themselves of course play a large role in this type of photography, but probably just as important are the background settings featured in these type of images. Some use natural backgrounds like the outdoors, but many use actual dioramas and backdrops. So where do these wonderful backdrops come from? For the most part, the action figure manufacturers themselves seem to be slow to take advantage of this latest trend of action figure photography, but there are certainly those out there who have not. Now obviously there are those talented enough that they simply make their own backdrops and dioramas to display their figures, but for those of us who are not, we have to look for others to help out with that. Today I decided to look through the world of eBay to see just what kind of custom dioramas and backdrops are available for purchase. That’s not to say there aren’t options out there other than eBay, but this seemed like a good place to start. Note: All items featured in this article should not be construed as me personally endorsing them as something to buy. I have never handled any of these items in-hand. My opinions are based solely on what I see and read in the action descriptions. You may want to look into the items featured here, but I would definitely recommend you do more research on any item before making an actual purchase. The first one I came across was from eBay seller cartoonmike407 who had a pretty cool looking custom sewer diorama with rotating wall up for auction. The measurements given are 11.5" Wide x 11.5” Tall x 11.5" Deep which seem to make it a good fit for TMNT and even Marvel Legends. While they say it’s hand-painted, they don’t go into details about the materials used to make it. Sewers IMO are always nice for a wide-range of battle scenes for various types of action figures. The asking price of $100 does seem a little high to me, but I suppose if it has a solid construction it might be worth dropping that kind of cash. You can see more of it by CLICKING HERE. The next one I came across that I like was this battle diorama from eBay seller kairus. I like the little added details like the Days of Future Past X-Men deceased poster, and the seller also states that this one folds down with magnets for easy storage which is always nice. The dimensions given are height 16” and length 19”. They say it’s made with pink foam. Like the previous diorama, the asking price is on the hefty side of $185, but it does seem to be fairly in keeping with other similar sized dioramas. You can see more of it by CLICKING HERE. This next doorway entrance diorama is smaller than the previous two, but it caught my eye because it seems to have a working light feature. The seller, nursingmom2012, is very skimpy on the details of this listing so I would definitely ask more questions before buying, but based on the images it looks pretty cool. Besides being smaller it is also cheaper coming in at $45. You can see more of it by CLICKING HERE This next one is for you smaller 4” scale collectors and is just a base. You will have to provide your own backdrop with this one. The base is made to look like stone which I think is what attracted me to it most. It also has a very mystical type feel to it. The seller says it’s made with a high durable insulation foam board and custom hand brushed. He goes on to say it’s lightweight but tough enough for reasonable/responsible play. The price for this one is $59.99. You can see more of it by CLICKING HERE Next up we have another war zone type display that should give you a lot of options when displaying figures with it. Based on these images, this looks to be one of the more elaborate displays I’ve come across on eBay. The seller indicates he makes them on commission, meaning it’s not already pre-made. The seller indicates that it measures 21" x 21" x 15” and is magnetized for easy assembly and storage. The price for this one is $175. You can see more of it by CLICKING HERE For something a little different, here is a look at a 1/12 temple ruins diorama. The look of stone for this one seems really nice based on the images, and the door can be opened or closed. The measurements given are 16” long, 13” tall, and 13” deep, and the seller says it has ancient writings carved into the walls plus two full pillar props and two half/broken pillar parts. It does have a very hefty price tag, coming in at $195. You can see more of it by CLICKING HERE This last one is cheap but kinda cool if you’re an X-Men fan. It’s made to look like the entrance of the Cerebro chamber from the X-Men movies. It would be cool for your glass case and only costs $29.99. The seller says it measures 15"x15" and uses glossy adhesive vinyl sticker material. You can see more of it by CLICKING HERE Let us know what you use for backdrops in your toy thotography in the COMMENTS SECTION below.
  7. Marvel has decided not to move forward with two of the four previously announced animated comedies that were slated to air on Hulu. Howard The Duck and the Tigra And Dazzler shows are no more. The other two, MODOK and Hit Monkey are still moving forward. The Tigra And Dazzler series had reportedly been dealing with writing staff issues and production was halted back in December. The decision by Marvel to scrap these two shows is likely part of a house-cleaning measure being taken due to the transition from the Jeph Loeb era of TV programing to the Kevin Feige one. Feige was named Marvel's chief creative officer of film, TV and animation back in October.
  8. We're not that deep into rumorville. These are listings being put out to retailers which 9 times out of 10 turn out to be correct. Nothing is 100% confirmed until Hasbro confirms it and changes are possible, but its not like we are talking far fetched rumors either. The biggest questions here are the unkowns like comic vs video game based, but Tarrot is right they never list BAF in individual listings so Rage is almost def a single pack figure not BAF.
  9. The only two characters that appeal to me in the FF and Spider-Man wave are Doom and Shang-Chi and Vulture. I find this wave with Rage, Mach-1, Leader and Mar-vell is much more appealing. Everyone is going to have different preferred favorites especially as you start getting into the more obscure characters, hence why the Spider-Man, Cap and Iron Mans that everyone always complain about are always found in these waves.
  10. The new Marvel: Avengers Assemble Series - Hulk, Amazon Exclusive Pop! vinyl figure is now available for pre-order and will be released on March 24.
  11. Thanks Jtprime17 for the intel. I've also done some additional checking and the listings seem legit on the VG assortment, but also can't determine if we are dealing with all VG figures or a mix of comic and VG. My feeling is it will be a mix with Captain America, Iron Man and Ms Marvel being VG based and Rage, Mach-1, Leader and Mar-Vel being comic based. Also no idea if this wave will have a BAF or not.
  12. This past week, writer Tini Howard and artist Marcus To completed their opening story in EXCALIBUR to critical and fan acclaim and proved that mutant magic is stronger than ever!
