Dynamite has certainly made the effort lately in new projects, endeavoring to breathe new life into established characters.Their recent press release announcing a new Mighty Mouse series shows something that could be a problem for this company fighting valiantly for a larger share of the comics market left by Marvel and DC.

Finishing out our random look at Wolverine toys for this month's celebration, we're looking at a non-toy. The Wolverine From Then 'Til Now II trading card series by Comic Images. I know trading cards aren't toys, but rather than show off another Weapon X figure, I thought I'd share a Wolverine collectible that had a huge impact on me as a kid.
Mezco has unleashed a new style of Living Dead Doll. Instead of the dead we are looking at something really awesome and new. This is what Mezco had to say- "LDD Presents has been created to bring pop-culture characters into the world of dolls that don’t quite fit into the universe of our existing dark and creepy doll line. Much like elseworlds-esque universes that are created in comic books in order to have more non-canonical fun with their characters and storylines, we created LDD Presents to allow us to expand our creative scope and bring to life characters and brands within our doll format that were not a perfect fit for Living Dead Dolls."
LEGO will be releasing a new Ultimate Snowspeeder this coming May and this will be a second opportunity to score this amazing piece.

Mezco has launched the Wolverine One 12 Collective pre-order! Do not hesitate folks, the One 12 Collective line is on fire and most, if not all, the offerings are sold out. This is one you do not want to miss! Also last week we ran a story of the most anticipated Wolverine figure for the year and this was it so go go go!
Funko has released images and details for the first round of Star Wars Celebration Exclusives. These you do not want to miss BUT there is a catch. You must register for the lottery for a chance to get in the Funko booth. Read on for more.
We get lots of press releases. The Kiss/Vampirella crossover announcement at first looks like just another press release for a crossover comic. In reading it, it gets highly entertaining with Gene Simmons referring to Vampirella creator Forrest J. Ackerman as "Forry"and writer Chris Selba describing all of the 1970s Kiss-inspired craziness in this comic. It even makes the paragraph-long description of eleven variant covers tolerable. Check out the press release below.
In the early to mid 90's Toy Biz ruled the aisles with their X-Men toyline of 5" figures. Today we're looking at one of my favorites from back then, Weapon X (AKA: 4th Edition Wolverine)
