While you won't find me at New York Comic-Con (NYCC) this weekend, you can certainly find some awesome toys and collectibles being offered by my friends at Funko and Entertainment Earth. One very much-anticipated item is the Funko / Entertainment Earth Convention Exclusive Classic Spider-Woman Pop! Vinyl Figure. First announced on the official Funko blog last month, Spider-Woman joins the Funko family TODAY and is available in super-limited quantities only at Funko's booth at New York Comic-Con or online through Entertainment Earth! These are in the EE warehouse and ready to ship next week, and although I'm not at NYCC, somehow Spider-Woman made her way to me. Check out this first hands-on look!

This past weekend, Marvel Rising hit the scene in a big way with the feature-length Marvel Rising: Secret Warriors airing on Disney Channel and Disney XD, following the successful Marvel Rising: Initiation shorts and being joined by a companion line of new merchandise and toys from Hasbro. With fans already clamoring for more, Marvel Entertainment announced two new animated specials Marvel Rising: Chasing Ghosts and Marvel Rising: Heart of Iron. But that's not all... news is coming in from New York Comic-Con (NYCC) that Marvel Rising will be coming to comic books in 2019. Having seen how quickly The Rock Daughters™ have connected with it, I think all new Disney projects need to launch alongside a pop song from Dove Cameron (my girls just keep singing "Born Ready")...

Mezco just opened one of those glowing portals, and through it comes their new One:12 Collective Dr. Strange - First Appearance Edition Figure. Launching at New York Comic-Con, this new figure captures the Master of the Mystic Arts at the very beginning of his path towards becoming Sorcerer Supreme. Inspired by Strange Tales issues 110-128, Dr. Strange comes complete with a magnetically attached cloak that has an integrated posing wire, a newly designed outfit inspired by his early appearances, and an array of mystifying accessories including an enchanted amulet, mystical cloak and a rotatable Orb of Agamotto with hinged lid.

It's no secret that I do love VOLTRON, and knowing that the folks behind DreamWorks Animation's VOLTRON: LEGENDARY DEFENDER feel the same way, my appreciation of the work just grows stronger. Today comes the official word straight outta New York Comic-Con (NYCC) that Season Two will premiere on Netflix on January 20, 2017. Some new pics of the series have been issued, the new action figures and vehicles from Playmates should probably debut at New York Toy Fair in February, and there's also a Season Two teaser that was released via IGN - a clip that will be familiar to those who attended SDCC this past summer. Take a look...

A new adventure has begun... The LEGO Group today announced LEGO® NEXO KNIGHTS,™ a new, original LEGO property depicting a medieval kingdom set in a futuristic world where five young, brave knights “download” special powers to their shields in order to battle the royal court’s evil Jestro and a cast of monsters to restore peace.
