Funko POP! Vinyl Captain America: Civil War 4-Pack In-Hand Photos

Check out some in-hand photos of the new POP! Vinyl Civil War 4-Pack which includes Spider-Man, Hawkeye, and keychain miniatures of Captain America and Iron Man.

I haven’t been taking my POP figures out of the packages, so I apologize for the lack of variety, but these guys are definitely worth adding to a collection. Now all we’re missing is Vision, who I hope we get wearing a sweater. Make it happen, Funko!

Funko Marvel Collector Corps Civil War Box

Today seems to be a Funko sorta day for me. I stopped by a local Gamestop and ended up getting a few Captain America: Civil War Dorbz and when I got home I found my Funko Collector Corps box sitting on my porch!

Now I’ve never gotten a CC box before- I’m not a Funko collector- but I just couldn’t pass on getting an entire box of goodies with a Cap theme.

First off let’s talk about this box, because the brown cardboard shipping container is, itself, a beautiful collectible. The art on the front is great, featuring a close-up of Cap and Iron Man, but once you open it you are greeted by an onslaught of gorgeous Civil War line art. Different characters are depicted as well as some fight scenes drawn towards the bottom. Really great start to this subscription box.

The first thing you see inside are a pin and a patch- something that I understand comes with every box. The pin this time out is Black Panther and is a really nice looking piece of 1.5″ metal. The patch is slightly larger at around 3″ and displays one of my all time favorite baddies, Crossbones. As you would imagine, both of the designs used are based off of the movie appearances and look stunning.

Lifting the next flap/panel will reveal the rest of the swag- an info card, a comic, a t-shirt, a lanyard, and both a POP! Vinyl and a Dorbz!

The info card is neat and I don’t know if this is the sort of thing that they include with every box, but I love the tid-bits of trivia on it.

POP-style Cap and Panther are throwing down on this variant cover for Black Panther #1, which is our comic book. While it makes more sense (being T’Challa’s book) I think I preferred the cover with Iron Man teased on the info card.

The t-shirt is AMAZING! I will most likely be wearing this when I go to see Civil War on opening night! I love the entire composition of the art. Team Iron Man in red vs. Team Cap in blue- just a really solid design! (Also always good to see Agent 13 included in things!)

The lanyard is cool and has two alternating patterns of POP Cap and POP Iron Man each in their respective colors with the movie logo in there as well. Like the info card says- this is a cool place for you to store all the CC pins you’ve collected throughout the first year of subscription.

Now onto the reason we all came here- THE TOYS!!!

The Dorbz figure included is an unmasked Iron Man that, if I remember correctly, was initially going to be offered alongside an unmasked Cap as a Free Comic Book Day promo. I’m assuming things changed somewhere along the lines and we instead get happy little Tony this way. He’s a really cool little toy, and I love the look of Dorbz in general, so he’s definitely a welcomed addition to the shelf. I would have preferred Steve instead of Tony, but that’s mainly because I’m #teamcap for life.

The last (and possibly best) piece from this box is the Captain America/ Iron Man POP! Vinyl 2 pack. Unlike the one offered at FYE stores, this 2 pack has two brand new POPs- action pose Cap and action pose Iron Man! They look great in the package and have so much life to them that I’m starting to wish I had more action pose POPs.

I wouldn’t have minded a little Battle-damaged look painted on to these two, but that’s just me nitpicking. These are great just as is.

I’m really glad I decided to pick this box up. It’s my first experience with the Marvel Collector Corps from Funko and I definitely believe I started with the right one. Kudos to the folks at Funko for making such a fun set!

 

Captain America Movie Marathon at AMC Theaters

AMC Theaters Nationwide are celebrating the release of Captain America: Civil War with an ass-numbing movie marathon featuring the first two Cap movies, both Avengers movies, and finishing up with Civil War. For those keeping track, that puts us at over 14 hours of sitting in a chair!

Now I love Cap as much as the next guy, but let’s be real here- I can’t even do this marathon from the comfort of my home, so the idea of sitting in a cramped movie theater is beyond me.

However, should you have the sheer strength of will to undertake this outing, it starts at 7am in select AMC Theaters and tickets will not only land you a seat to 14 hours of Marvel goodness, but you’ll also get get some cool collectible Cap swag, too!

I couldn’t find any info on the pricing, but all the info that is currently available, including participating theaters, can be found on the official AMC website here.

Lego Captain America’s Motorcycle set coming soon?

pTRU1-23425720dt

I don’t know anything about this set at all, but it popped up on Toysrus.com for $3.99. It’s not available for purchase yet, but Captain America’s Motorcycle has the “Civil War” logo on the bag, so I would expect it out soon.

In my personal opinion it’s a neat little set so I’ll definitely be on the lookout for it.

Funko POP! Vinyl Civil War 5-pack Disney Store Europe Exclusive

I was wandering through eBay today and stumbled across a listing for this FUNKO POP CAPTAIN AMERICA CIVIL WAR DISNEY STORE EXCLUSIVE 5 PACK which I had never seen before. The 5 pack includes the standard releases for Cap, Agent 13, Black Panther, and Crossbones, as well as the Hot Topic Exclusive “Unmasked” Iron Man.

The listing is from a seller in Sweden, and it states that it’s a Disney Store European Exclusive limited to 5000 pieces, so there’s a good chance that you’ll end up paying through the nose for it, but if you’re a completionist, then this may be something you’d want to look into.

Lego Marvel Super Heroes Captain America Civil War “Super Hero Airport Battle” Review

I was excited to see the new Lego sets for Civil War start to roll out, and I, of course, snatched them up right away.

2016-03-01-11.58.05.jpg.jpeg

After assembling and playing with all 3 new Cap sets, I figured I would start with the biggest one simply because I had the most fun playing with it. There’s just so much to love here that the $80 price tag was a little easier to handle. This particular set, the “Super Hero Airport Battle”, has caused a lot of buzz around the internet due to what some people are calling a “Big” spoiler. To me, if you didn’t know this was eventually coming in the movies, it probably just means you’ve never read a comic. Regardless I feel the need to state that there are potential spoilers ahead from the upcoming Captain America: Civil War movie, so read at your own discretion.

For starters, this is a MASSIVE set, which includes 807 pieces. These parts, spread across 5 bags, assemble into 1 building, 2 vehicles, 6 minifigures, 1 microfigure, and 1, uh, maxifigure? I’ve been buying Lego sets for years and I can’t remember the last time I’ve seen this much crammed into one set, or the last time I’ve seen an instruction manual this damn thick. Yowza.

Seems I forgot Scarlet Witch. Oops.

The minifigs included here are Captain America (which appears to be the same one used in the Avengers: Age of Ultron sets), The Winter Soldier, Scarlet Witch, Agent 13, Iron Man, and War Machine. Each figure aside from Cap features 2 faces on one head- a more happy “neutral” face and an angry face. In addition, each character gets a weapon or accessory, or in some cases like War Machine, they get both. His minifig is unique in that it gets a backpack that can fire a missle plus hold what I can only call a beating stick.

 

The microfig of the set is Ant Man, who is a tiny little statue with really detailed paint apps. Not much to say about him, but he does look great.

Now the big guy, what I am calling a maxifig, is really the star of this set. Giant Man, who is our potential spoiler here, is absolutely stunning. He’s built out of a combination of standard Lego pieces and some technic parts, culminating in a 5.5″ figure, which in LEGOLAND means he more than earns his name. He has a head swivel, ball joint shoulders, wrist swivels AND pivots, and hip swivels- all of which help you get some really fun poses out of what is essentially a jumbo size minifig. His hands are even large enough to grab other minifigs and cart them around! I just love this guy!

If you can get over the coolness of Giant Man, and believe me, that took a while, you can move on to some of the other things this set has to offer. First up is the yellow luggage cart which has a “spill the bags” action feature. It’s a two-part vehicle with rubber tires that can transport your awesome decal-covered luggage to the plane that isn’t included in this set, so I guess can just be tossed around during the Super Hero Scuffle.

Next up is the incredibly cool airport control tower. The building has three floors all of which are accessible from the back. It has multiple action features like a break-away wall on the second floor or a stack of crates on the first the you can use your little Ant Man to knock over. Inside you will find computer terminals, chairs, and even a Lego coffee mug on a desk. It’s the little things, folks. It really is.

Lastly you get what I’m guessing is a new iteration of a Quinjet. It’s a fairly hefty piece and has a lot of detail. There’s an opening cockpit that can fit two minifigs, an opening tailgate (is that what they’re called on planes?) that has an escape rope, movable wings, and a crank on top that when turned will drop a cannon from the bottom of the jet which can fire to little Lego stud pieces. The only thing it’s missing is a flight stand, but the great thing about Lego is that if you want something, you can just rummage through you loose parts and make it. Go creativity!

In addition to all the basic Lego-y goodness the set includes, you also get a mincomic which shows some scenes you can reenact using the 3 different Lego sets. I don’t know if I’d count anything in here as a spoiler, as it doesn’t really show anything we haven’t already seen in the trailers, but I’m going to refrain from posting anything from inside just in case. The back of the comic shows all of the characters you get if you collect all the sets, which is cool to see, but it makes me hope that we get more Civil War sets in the future. We’re missing some players here like Hawkeye (that poor guy never catches a break), Vision, and Spider-Man, so I’ll be keeping my fingers crossed.

Oh, and for those keeping track here, Tony’s team seems really outnumbered. Ha!

These new Lego sets should be hitting stores this week, and I highly recommend this set to anyone who is a Cap fan, a Marvel fan, or a Lego fan, as it has some great builds and features one of the best Lego designs I’ve ever seen. I never thought I’d say this, but Giant Man for the win!
