2019 Marvel Legends Figures

We’ve already highlighted a ton of the cool movie and TV-inspired toys and collectibles that were revealed at the 2019 New York Toy Fair last weekend. But much like the return of Kenner’s vintage Star Wars figures, we thought some new additions to the Marvel Legends action figure line-up from the Marvel Cinematic Universe deserved to be highlighted on their own.

This year, Marvel Comics is celebrating their 80th anniversary, and in honor of that milestone, they’re releasing some figures of characters who you might not have expected to ever see available to display on your collectibles shelf. They include fan favorite characters like Korg and The Grandmaster from Thor: Ragnarok, Luis from Ant-Man and the Wasp, and Peggy Carter from Captain America: The First Avenger. Get a look at all of the new 2019 Marvel Legends figures from the MCU below. Read More »

Los Angeles Online Film Critics Society awards winners

It’s only been a few days since the members of the Los Angeles Online Film Critics Society released the nominees for their annual awards, and the winners have already been determined. However, don’t expect this to be an indication of how any of the major awards are going to go down later this season.

However, that actually makes the Los Angeles Online Film Critics Society awards winners a little more interesting than the usual awards fare – they have awarded the adaptation of The Hate U Give Best Picture. How did the rest of the awards shake out ? Check out the full list below. Read More »

Will anyone in Avengers 4 refer to the moment by these names? Will you? Read More »
