We’ve got a new set showing up in the Disney Store online today. It’s an Iron Man Hall of Armor Play Set. It comes with an Iron Man figure and two different add on suits. The figure itself doesn’t look different than the last one that came out. The suits appear to click on and I believe will work on any already released Iron Man figure.
It seems like Disney is focusing on Play Sets right now. I can see how that would bring in a younger audience, so hopefully kids like it so we continue to get cool figures.
New Figures! These are all ones that I’ve previously mentioned on the blog, but they are now all, finally, showing up in the store. IMO Sorcerer Mickey is the best one, however I wish they’d kept the style from the Disney Infinity Figure. I’m hoping that they release a special one like they did with the game as well.
Searching and comparing the Disney Infinity figure with the Toybox one was a mistake. They’ve changed the style way too much and it’s not nearly as cute anymore.
Overall, I still believe that the Star Wars line has kept to the art style the best. Marvel has always been more hit or miss, but there have been a lot more misses lately. The newest Disney figures from Coco were great, but the Peter Pan and Hook figures look like regular figures. As a fan it’s disappointing.
The Toybox line started out adorable, carrying on the torch of Disney Infinity beautifully, after it was canceled. The art style was unique and the price point was acceptable. Along the way something has changed. I don’t know what it is, but I hope things are corrected and we return to what I originally loved about the figures.
All of my lists have been updated with the new figures. I’m still missing a couple numbers on the Disney list. I honestly have no idea what I could have missed so if someone knows please let me know so I can add them.
This is an Amazon exclusive that I found today. I don’t collect these figures, but seeing it made me all of a sudden want an Agent Carter toybox figure so bad! Ughhhhhh It would be so cool. It’s never going to happen. Agent Carter has been supremely shafted by Marvel, but I’m going to dream. Basically, I’m creating a wish list of figures just for her lol
SuperSorrell has a picture of each on his Instagram which I’ve linked here. None of these are showing up yet on the Disney store.
This is the third Hulk figure and the hundredth Spider-Man figure. Seriously, it’s getting a bit ridiculous with the Spider-Men. Spider-Ham is cool, but a venomized Spider-Man and Hulk? Maybe finish releasing the Guardian’s of the Galaxy or more X-Men figures. Something new please.
So it’s the middle of May. Naturally, I’ve finally watched all the movies I was interested in watching in 2019. I had to wait until Ip Man 4 came out which took some time, and then it kept getting put off for a Brooklyn 99 re-watch that was going on for my mental health. So now, without further ado, the movies I liked the most in 2019.
John Wick: Chapter 3 – Parabellum – This seriously might be my favorite John Wick movie. I’ve rewatched the first two and while I still love the first a lot, I think Chapter 3 just edges it out of the first spot.
Captain Marvel – We FINALLY got a female led Marvel superhero movie. I was so freaking excited for this movie. I’ve rewatched it. I bought more merchandise than I care to admit. I still love it. It hurts that I’m going to have to wait so long for a sequel.
Knives Out – Was not expecting to enjoy this movie as much as I did. I am not a fan of Rein Johnson after The Last Jedi, but this looked fun and I had just enough people tell me to watch it, so I did. It was like an Agatha Christie novel. I loved it. Daniel Craig’s accent was wonderful and I hope we get another movie with his character.
Avengers: End Game – It was truly amazing what they were able to accomplish with this movie. While I wasn’t a fan of what they did with Captain America, I still find it incredible that they were able to wrap everything up like they did and have it not feel lacking.
Spider-Man: Far From Home – I loved getting to see the world after Endgame. Jake Gyllenhaal made a perfect villain and the struggles that Peter were having felt right.
Jojo Rabbit – I’m mainly putting this one here for the scene where you see Scarlett Johansson’s feet dangling. I wasn’t expecting it, I actually gasped. It made everything up until that moment hit so much harder. Even with that it was a movie with humor and not as depressing as I expected it to be.
Where’d You Go Bernadette – I haven’t read the book, but I like Cate Blanchette so I figured why not. Seeing her struggle and how everyone was truly out to get her and she couldn’t be heard struck my own persecution complex. I thought the movie was funny and it was a surprise hit for me.
Always Be My Maybe – This movie was fucking hilarious. I’ve watched it a couple times and each time I freaking love it. Ugh I need more romantic comedies like this. Why aren’t there more of these???
Frozen II – The songs were great, the water effects amazing, the story a bit eh.
Jumanji: The Next Level – Not as fun as the first one, but I still found it entertaining.
Charlie’s Angels – It truly bums me out that this won’t get a sequel. It wasn’t perfect, but I still really enjoyed it, and holy shit Kristen Stewart was HOT.
