MARVEL

Captain America Motorcycle Marvel Toybox Set

Wow we’ve got another new set showing up on the Disney online store.

Captain America and Winter Soldier, both with interchangeable heads, as well as a motorcycle that has lights and makes sounds. Bucky is a new figure and I hope he becomes available on his own, but we’ll have to wait and see. He comes with a knife and gun, while Cap has a new shield. Cap looks to be the same mold, but a pretty cool paint job.

Price wise it’s $40, which I still think is too much for a set like this, but it falls in line with others that have been released. It’s nice to see another “side character” I hope we get even more. Also, I’m still holding out for some Disney princesses in the Toybox line.

New Disney Toybox Figures: Star Wars and MARVEL

Alright, so I moved and Spectrum was super awesome and stuff happened and we haven’t had internet for two and a half weeks with no end in site. I’m currently accessing the internet almost exclusively on my phone. So needless to say I haven’t been checking for new figures recently. Naturally, that means things have started showing up on the Disney store.

A quick list of everything:

MARVEL Avengers Gift Set

C-3PO & R2-D2

Rey

Millennium Falcon Play Set

Sith Trooper

I’ve seen a couple pics of a few of these floating around for a couple weeks now, but they are all currently showing up on the online store.

Marvel Avengers Gift Set

The MARVEL Avengers Gift Set has a couple reskins, but there are also two new characters. Thor, Black Widow, and The Hulk all look pretty much the same. There seem to be a few changes to Black Widow, mainly her hair color, but I also believe her uniform is slightly different. Doctor Strange is translucent, but his actual body seems to be the same based on the pics. Still a cool effect.

The big thing here is the addition of Hawkeye and Iron Patriot. This is the first time we’re seeing these two characters in the line. Hawkeye comes with two heads and a bow and arrow set. While Iron Patriot comes with twin cannons. Just based on the online pics I’m not sure, but it looks like Iron Patriot is just a reskin of the old Iron Man figure. Someone correct me if I’m wrong.

New Star Wars Figures! The last one we had was Poe at number 11. I’m not sure what number 13 is, but I think it’s probably a new Kylo Ren. Nothing else is showing up on the store yet but I’ll update when it does.

Rey has new clothes, her face looks mostly the same and so does her body. The Sith Trooper, though, seems to be completely new. It has a different mask than the regular trooper as well as different shoulders and he comes with a large gun. Very cool looking.

I love the addition of some droids. C-3PO and R2-D2 look really good, but in my opinion they do not look $18.95 good, which is what they’re listed for on Disney’s website. Not sure why there’s such a different in price between them and the regular $12.95 for figures. We’ve had a few of the larger figures at $14.95, but that’s understandable with the size difference. The droids don’t look bigger than usual.

Millennium Falcon Star Wars Play Set Rey

 

The new Millennium Falcon set now comes with Rey and BB-8, as well as new droid D-O. The paint colors are different from the previous set, the guns are different, but the rest seems to be the same. It still has the nice light up feature as well as sound effects. At $79.95 it’s too pricey for me.

I’ll stay on the lookout for new figures and update my lists as they come out.

Poe Dameron Disney Toybox Figure

Good morning! This is going to really quick and not have any pics cause my computer is acting up (sorry) but it looks like there’s a new Star Wars figure in the Disney Toybox line!!

Poe Dameron with BB8!!! Seriously, this one is long awaited and I’m planning a trip to the closest Disney store to pick him up. If you don’t live close to a store it’s actually showing up on their online store…for now.

Also, finally showing up is Rocket and Groot the newest Marvel figure. Plus, Sulley and Boo, which I’m not even sure if I knew that one was coming out. Too much going on, but they’ve all been added to the master list.

New Toybox Figure Hints

SuperSorrell once again with the new information! This time it looks like the new Iron Man figure comes with some hints at what’s to come with the Marvel line.

Link to Picture Here

Rocket Racoon and Baby Groot are the only ones pictured, but there are silhouettes of three other characters. First gueses are Shuri (OMG), Captain America, and maybe Captain Marvel. The Captain Marvel one could honestly be anyone at this point and is just wishful thinking on my part. It’s probably another Spider-Man with the new movie about to come out. We will see!

Of course, none of these are on the Disney Store website, though, you might be able to find them in a physical location. Once I get actual visuals of the figures I’ll add them to my lists.

Michael Douglas

Plot:

As Scott Lang balances being both a Super Hero and a father, Hope van Dyne and Dr. Hank Pym present an urgent new mission that finds the Ant-Man fighting alongside The Wasp to uncover secrets from their past.

Review:

Scott aka. Ant-Man, Paul Rudd, is nearing the end of his two year house arrest. Once that’s over he’s just going to have three years of parole, which lets be honest is a pretty light sentence for the damage he did in Civil War, especially as he’s already an ex-convict. Putting that aside, he’s got plans and it looks like his life is finally getting into order. He’s got a good relationship with his daughter, his ex-wife and her new husband are on good terms with him, and he’s got a new business that looks like it’s going to do alright.

Hope aka Wasp, Evangeline Lily, and her father, Michael Douglas, are a bit pissed at Scott right now. Because of his actions they’re on the run, but it’s brought them closer together. With the knowledge learned from the last movie they are working to find Hope’s mother who has been lost in the quantum realm for thirty years.

Basically, Hope is a bad ass who kicks some major ass. She’s incredibly confident and smart, easily holding her own with her father even though he’s smarter than she is. She’s cunning, but not cut throat. Scott is the heart, I guess. He’s smart, though, that’s not very clear in this movie. He’s capable in a fight, but she’s got all the training. He is loyal, but he often makes the wrong decision, just not in a way that makes me hate him more in a dude I get where you’re coming from just use your brain sort of way.

Ant-Man and the Wasp is significantly better than the last movie. It’s got the wonderful Michael Peña in a much more prominent role than last time. It has two villains, but really only one. I have a hard time viewing the Ghost, Hannah John-Kamen, as a villain. She was used by S.H.I.E.L.D. to become a killer and was just trying to get help for herself. Yes, she was willing to do unspeakable things, but she was in constant pain, and she didn’t actually succeed in doing them. I wouldn’t necessarily trust her a tight spot, but I wouldn’t count her a villain.

I’m excited to see Scott in Endgame, I’m curious to see if he’s the one that saves the day. I’m also looking forward to an Ant-Man and the Wasp 3. I hope they don’t just set these heroes aside, I feel like they’re owed their own ending.
