Superhero Hype’s Best Amazon Toy and Collectibles Deals for July 8
All work and no play makes Jack’s apartment really dull-looking, or something like that. Fans of superheroes are usually fans of physical representations of those characters, to play or display. But with so many, it’s hard to know where to begin or what to afford. In this ongoing series, Superhero Hype takes a look at some of the better deals Amazon.com has running as of publication time. Please note that all deals are subject to change or sell out at any time based on supply and demand.
Build up a home Quidditch arena with this match building set that includes towers for all four Hogwarts houses. Action features include secret panels, stud-shooters, and a moving flight stand to keep a goalie in motion. Minifigs include Harry Potter, Hermione, Snape and more. Enough is provided for mini-playset and movie scene fun, but collect multiples to build an even bigger game field. Currently more than half off, this preorder makes for a snatch almost as good as the snitch.
Now that McFarlane Toys has the DC toy license, the figures look a bit taller. But Wonder Woman‘s mom here hails from the Mattel era. With a detail level and scale that fits in with Marvel Legends and other 6-inch lines. Armed with her spear and sword, the queen of Themyscira can go toe to toe with a host of previous DC action figures, or even the likes of Thanos and Iron Man. Prepare for her likely return in Wonder Woman 1984 and The Snyder Cut with this discounted action figure.
With Ruby Rose leaving the CW DC-verse, who knows what happens next for Batwoman? Regardless, the network still gave us one solid season of Kate Kane in a comics-accurate suit, fighting crime in Gotham. The first lesbian lead character in a live-action superhero blazed a trail that nothing thereafter can erase. And this PVC statue, at 19% off, captures her in all her glory.
Until Todd McFarlane gets around to making an action figure of her, this is the only way to bring home the gender-flipped Atlantean Batman. Now that Jason Momoa conclusively proved Aquaman can be cool, Dark Nights Metal wonders what if Batman were Aqua-woman? And Amazon asks what if the price got 20% lower?
Of all the Disney Star Wars movies, Solo most nailed that ’70s hot rod vibe which embodied so much of George Lucas’ passion. Thank director Ron Howard, who knew and worked with “the Maker” since way back. Among the hot rodders onscreen, Tobia Beckett’s nemesis Enfys Nest came off the best. Tough as nails, and a match for any smugglers, this masked marauder revealed quite the secret by the end. Don’t expect the toy to reveal such things so easily, but it’s still a beauty of a combo back at a great price.
Designed for Dragon Ball figures, this martial arts diorama display works well for any 6-inch scale figures. 11.8 inches deep by 9 inches high, the set features break-apart reconfiguration to show battle damage. And at $29.99, it’s a whole lot cheaper than most diorama pieces or elements on the market to showcase fighting figures.
Hasbro’s Overwatch line shone briefly and brightly, with elaborate and intricate figures. But after the first line didn’t see super sales, follow-up figures seemed scarcer. Thankfully, Zarya here can come home to players via Amazon for almost half the original retail price. A rare plus-sized female heroine with tribal tattoos, Zarya appeals to unconventional leading ladies and those who love them.
Voiced by Leonard Nimoy on the big screen, Sentinel Prime betrayed his Autobot roots to align with Megatron in the battle of Chicago. In Dark of the Moon, the first 3-D Transformers film, critics seemed more tolerant as the action quotient ramped up. Nimoy’s inherent gravitas certainly didn’t hurt. For his debut in the Studio Series line, Sentinel Prime comes modeled off the original digital files. And yes, he transforms into a fire truck.
You know what Letitia Wright and Andy Serkis look like. But in the comics, they appeared quite differently. With this pre-movie two-pack, grab a figure of Shuri as the Black Panther, alongside villain Klaw in his super comic booky purple shorts. Wakanda for 20% off!
It seems today, that all ya see, is violence in Marvel, and sex in DC. But who’s got those good old fashioned values…on which we face all of that? Lucky there’s a family bat. Lucky there’s a bat who, might positively trap you, if you’re a villain who makes his clan cry. He’s a family guy.
