Swing for the New Spider-Man Vinylmation figures from Disney

Spider-Man Marvel Vinylmation Series 2

Disney Theme Park Merchandise is releasing Marvel Vinylmation Series 2, a limited release mystery series based on classic Spider-Man characters on August 29, 2014. The collectible set features 3-inch figures decorated as some of Marvel’s beloved comic book characters.

The figures are presented in mystery boxes with 11 known designs shown on packaging and one mystery chaser figure. The series is sold either as individual boxes ($12.95 each plus tax) or as a complete tray ($310.80 each plus tax).

The figures were designed by Disney Design Group artist Thomas Scott. He consulted with fellow Disney Design Group artist and former Marvel Comics illustrator Casey Jones on the series. Thomas also worked with Marvel illustrators for the packaging designs.

Marvel Vinylmation Series 2 is the follow up collection to the now sold out Marvel Vinylmation Series 1 released in October 2013. Series 1 was one of the fastest selling Vinylmation collections ever released.

The new series is being released at D Street in Downtown Disney West Side at the Walt Disney World Resort and at D Street in the Downtown Disney District at the Disneyland Resort.

More information about Vinylmation can be found at their website and on Facebook.

Exclusive Marvel Select Spider-Man vs. Electro Figure Set

Marvel Select Spider-Man vs. Electro Figure Set

In 1964, The Amazing Spider-Man #9 hit comic book racks, pitting the newly minted superhero against the man who would become one of his most legendary foes: Electro! For 50 years, the electricity-wielding supervillain has gone up against Spider-Man, by himself and as a member of the Sinister Six. And while his costume has occasionally changed — most notably in this summer’s movie “The Amazing Spider-Man 2″ — the original, iconic lightning-bolt suit has repeatedly returned to the comics page. Now, Diamond Select Toys has teamed up with marvelshop.com to create an exclusive box set featuring Spidey and Electro in their classic outfits!

Right now, marvelshop.com will be the only place to order the Marvel Select Spider-Man vs. Electro Action Figure Box Set, featuring a comic-style Spider-Man and an exclusive sculpt of Electro in his classic yellow-and-green costume! Sculpted by Sam Greenwell, who has previously created figures of the Superior Spider-Man, Storm and Silver Surfer for the Marvel Select line, Electro stands approximately 7″ inches tall with 16 points of articulation. Both will come packaged in a window box with comic-book artwork on the front.

After September 8, the Marvel Select Spider-Man vs. Electro box set will be made available on disneystore.com, and will begin to make its way to Disney Store shelves in the U.S. and Canada. Marvelshop.com carries a wide assortment of Marvel Select action figures, including the exclusive comic-based Savage Hulk figure, the exclusive Winter Soldier action figure, movie-based Unmasked Captain America and Falcon figures (from Captain America: The Winter Soldier) and an Unmasked Spider-Man figure as he appears in “The Amazing Spider-Man 2.”

2015 Club Eternia® Subscription Extended: Friday, 8/22 through Monday, 8/25 Only!

By Tara Z.

We’ve got a special note from ToyGuru!

Hey He-Fans and She-Ravers,

We are sooooo close! 2015 subs ended with about 90%. A great showing but not quite close enough to go forward. With the end of the vintage line (redone in Classics) in question, we truly do believe in our fan base. We’re going to reopen the subs for an extension window from Friday, 8/22 at 9:00 a.m. PT through Monday, 8/25 at 11:59 PT.

Now is the time to rally! If everyone who sub’d last year would renew, we’d be golden. If you’re on the fence or were thinking of cherry-picking, remember… if the sub does not get that last critical 10% there won’t be a line to cherry-pick.Club Eternia

So please, let’s all come together! All MOTU fans of all eras truly make Classics the greatest MOTU (if not all brands) toy line of all time! I know we can do it! If you’re holding out, remember, unlike any previous year you pretty much know exactly who you’re getting, with our absolute promise to finish the vintage MOTU line, MOTU variants, original POP characters, and A-list New Adventures and media characters.

Let’s come together and make this happen! We really believe in our fans, and we’ve got one last chance. All our cards are on the table… it’s time to go all in!

Subscriptions open Friday, 8/22 at 9:00 a.m. PT through Monday, 8/25 at 11:59 PT.

Here’s (hopefully) to a great 2015!

Enter the Fan Zone: New Download & Videos, Plus New Designer & Fan Spotlight Interviews

By Tara Z.

New content, easy as 1, 2, 3! We’ve updated our Fan Zone with one new download, two new interviews, and three new videos. If it’s been a while since you clicked over, get ready for some eye-popping artwork, a meet & greet with one of our toy designers, and video looks at some upcoming figures.

Brandon with some friends at work.

Brandon with some friends at work.

We’re stoked about our newest download, Lodar! Originally from the 1984 mini comic “Slave City,” this all-new art from mini comic artist Axel presents the character as he might look in the classics line. Bonus trivia: Lodar was originally named Zodac, but after all the artwork was drawn and lettered, the writer learned the name was already taken. The down and dirty solution? The “Z” was changed to “L” and the “c” was changed to “r.”

We’ve also added a few new videos. Check out “All Toy Lines Must End,” our countdown to the final year for Masters of the Universe® Classics, and watch Toy Guru take a look at the upcoming DC Universe Doomsday figure, MOTUC figures Extendar™ and Battle Lion™, the new Club Etheria™ exclusive figure, Light Hope™, and the new Minis.Plus, we’ll meet Mattel toy designer Brandon Sopinsky and fan Patrick Fogarty, one of the winners of our recent Fisto™ contest.

What about you? Do you belong in the Fan Zone? You can click here to download the questionnaire, fill it out and send it in with some shots of your collection (the details are on the form). If we choose yours, it’ll be featured on MattyCollector.com and we’ll send you a signed Mattel action figure. Like we said, the Fan Zone is all about YOU, so let us know who you are!
