Vol 2, #31: SDCC is BACK! (sorta) {Video Podcast}

July 19, 2022

It's been three years since the last proper San Diego Comic-Con International. Now, finally, this week it makes its return for 2022, and likely 120,000 fans will gather. Yet, this will be a different feeling SDCC (and not just because of mask mandates). Hasbro has no sales booth, and no Marvel exclusive. The Hasbro Marvel panel is Friday, not Saturday. Mezco also is sitting out on exclusives this year. Companies like DC, Warner Bros., and others are sitting the convention out entirely.

Yet there's still much to get excited for. Justin, Arnie, and Marjorie detail it all in this issue of Marvelicious Toys! They list every announced exclusive, from a 12" Man-Thing to a tiny Toynk pin, and not one but two blue Iron Man figures.

Also on this week's show, a brief (spoilery) discussion of Thor: Love and Thunder, plus some collectibles and tie-ins that will make your eyes sparkle.

All this and Shrinkey-Dinks too are in this pre-SDCC Marvelicious Toys!

Vol 2, Ep 29: The Sentinels are HERE! {Audio Podcast}

June 20, 2022

Hasbro broke new ground with the Sentinel Haslab project. It set records for the biggest Haslab response (until beaten by the Hasbro Galactus a year later). It became the largest Marvel Legends figure of all time. It could be Master Mold, Tri-Sentinel, Battle Damaged, or regular.

It was an ambitious project, preceded by awe-inspiring online tease photos.

Was it too ambitious?

On this Marvelicious Toys, join Arnie, Justin, and Marjorie for a hands-on review of the Sentinel, as well as the included Sentinel Prime/Bastion and Female Sentinel Prime 6-inch figures. Is the Sentinel worth the hype (and possibly the after-market eBay pricing)? Find out now!

Also on this show, hear our hosts give a contemporaneous review to Sony's Venom: Let there Be Carnage

It's all in this brand-new Marvelicious Toys episode! Watch or listen now:

Vol 2 #28: It’s My Ned in a Box {Audio Podcast}

May 24, 2022

We knew it was coming...now we know what it looks like: Hasbro's plastic-free packaging. This step towards sustainable packaging is certainly making waves among those who like to keep their figures mint in package. (Some people even buy extra plastic to protect Hasbro's paper-and-plastic packaging). On this new podcast our hosts react to the first look at the plastic-free figure packages.

Then, in an exclusive interview, Arnie and Justin talk to Hasbro's Marvel Team of Dan, Ryan, and Dwight to see what this means for retro carded figures, build-a-figures, and more!

Also on this show, there's a new sub-line of Legends: the Marvel Studios Legacy Collection. These rereleased figures have paint updates, but no build-a-figures. Our hosts debate if they're worth your dollars.

With a look at the 60th Anniversary Spider-Man figures, a Strange popcorn bucket, some love for No Way Home, and much more, it's all in this all-new Marvelicious Toys!

New Podcast: Vol 2, #26 — When Funds Galactus! {Video Podcast}

September 14, 2021

The Marvel team at Hasbro must wish they weren't working remotely. They could just walk into the office, drop a microphone, and walk out again. For the second time in a row they not only broke the HasLab funding records (in dollars AND backers), they smashed through it and just kept going. Not only is the Galactus HasLab funded, we are also getting the Nova figure, the Silver Surfer figure, the Morg figure, and an alternate Doctor Doom head!

In this podcast Justin, Marjorie, and Arnie have a postmortem on Galactus. It was a smash success, but could it have done even better? We dissect the HasLab from start to funding to finish.

Also in this week's show, the Hasbro team of Dwight Stall, Dan Yun, and Ryan Ting sat down with Arnie for a 20-minute exclusive interview. They talk retro 3.75-inch figures, retro Legends, Galactus, and more.

Finally, Hasbro has revealed their waves for the next two MCU movies -- The Eternals and Spider-Man: No Way Home. The hosts react to these reveals and ask the Eternals question: "who wants figures in ornate robes?"

With a discussion of next month's PulseCon and more, it's all in this week's Marvelicious Toys!
