  1. MarvelousNews reader Austin sends us word of this Black Panther movie based Shuri special edition doll. We are pretty sure this is new and certainly seems nicely detailed for a doll. Take playtime to new levels of power and action with this special edition doll featuring Shuri, T'Challa's sister and princess of Wakanda. Inspired by Marvel's Black Panther, Shuri comes with Panther-shaped battle gauntlets. You can purchase it online at Shop.Disney and it should be available at their physical stores as well.
  2. This week the POP Culture fandom was rocked with the news that legendary comic book creator Stan Lee passed away at age 95, which has left many hoping we might see companies like Hasbro release tribute figures based on the man who played a significant role in creating so many iconic characters such as Spider-Man. One figure in particular people want to see is the mystery Stan Lee Build-A-Figure Hasbro seemingly had planned to release earlier this year, but then was mysteriously pulled at the last minute. See a mock-up of that figure done with MCU 10th Anniversary packaging that was created by fan Andy Smith. Then there is this very cool Stan Lee statue created by overseas company Lustre Effects Studio. They had it on display at an overseas convention recently, but no word if they will be able to release it or not. Fan DanB has even created a petition on Change.org trying to convince Hasbro to release the Marvel Legends Build-A-Figure which currently has 869 of the 1000 signatures he is trying to get. Stan Lee of course has had multiple figures based on his likeness released over the years from the likes of Hot Toys, Funko, Hasbro and even a Masters Of The Universe Stan Lee Standor figure put out by Mattel. So it would seem like a no-brainier these later products would get done. Their certainly seems to be enough demand for it, but why might it not happen? The Hasbro Marvel Legends Stan Lee Build-A-Figure only came to light via retail computer inventory system listings and production sample leaks, and because of that Hasbro has never been willing to even acknowledge the figures existence, let alone give any kind of status update about it on or off the record. However when the fandom first became aware of the figure, their were some as-of-yet unconfirmed rumors the figure was pulled at the very last minute due to legal reasons. At the time their had been multiple reports that Mr. Lee was having problems with his former business people which included filing claims against his former Business Manager for elder abuse. It was likely these business people were the ones who initially negotiated with companies like Hasbro to have such figures made, and when those people's integrity became questionable, that would have nullified any previous agreements that might have been struck between the two camps. At the end of the day it was very likely that legal red tape was the number one cause for things like the Marvel Legends figure not being released, and it's unclear at this stage if that red tape can be cut. I have little doubt that if it can, companies like Hasbro won't hesitate to release such product in some way, but we will just have to wait and see.

  4. This April, the war that has exploded across the Ten Realms finally blasts into the last realm standing…ours. WAR OF THE REALMS IS COMING!

  5. Hasbro continues to eek out 3.75" Marvel Universe figures which now under the Marvel Legends Gamerverse banner with video game based figure 2-Packs. This set is based on the Contest Of Champions phone app game featuring Civil Warrior and The Collector. The Collector is a re-issue of the one they did a couple years ago for one of their SDCC exclusive boxsets with some very minor paint variations. The Collector does not come with any accessories and has the rubber joint syndrome that many Hasbro 3.75" figures these days suffer from. Civil Warrior is a new figure and is based on an alternate universe version of Captain America who wears an armor. The figure comes with a Captain America shield with a hole in the middle so you can connect a translucent blue blast effect piece. I guess in the game he can shoot a beam of energy from his shield. This doesn't work to well on the figure though because the blast effect piece is heavy enough that when you attach it to the shield it weighs down the figures arms pretty bad. I would recommend just setting that piece aside, however that does leave a big glaring hole on the shield. I personally got this set because I am a big Cap fan and wanted this variation of the character, and for that reason alone I guess I would say the set is worth getting. If you don't already have the previous SDCC version of The Collector then its a good figure minus the rubber joints. The headsculpt on that one is really good and definitely will make the set worth picking up. Check out our GALLERY of images for this set now as well as ShartimusPrime's own video review and take on the set below and then let us know what you think of the set in the COMMENTS SECTION. If you decide to pick this set up, you can get him now at our sponsor Megalopolis.Toys.
