SPIDER-MAN, MAGNETO FIGURES

Beast Kingdom and Diamond Comic Distributors have announced three new Previews Exclusive Egg Attack Action figures featuring Spider-Man and Magneto.

In Spider-Man: Homecoming, Peter Parker goes back to basics and is reminded that even without his advanced spider suit, he is still a hero! Wearing his homemade suit, he still manages to save the day and defeat the conniving Vulture. Beast Kingdom revisits the Egg Attack Action series with the latest cloth-clad 6-inch action figure: Previews Exclusive EAA-074 Spider-Man: Homecoming Homemade Suit. With a focus on detailed tailoring, this suit is the ultimate homage to Peter Parkerfs very own ingenuity. Featuring 28 points of articulation and measuring about 6.5h tall, this action figure features not only 3 pairs of magnetic replacement eyes and 4 pairs of replaceable hands, but also a fully tailored suit with elasticity in the pants and t-shirt. Real fabric with real zippers makes this a perfect collectorfs piece. Spidey also includes four varying lengths of webbing effects and a Homecoming branded base for easy display.

The Marvel Animated series from the 90fs introduced fans to some of the most iconic character designs of all time, and now, following the release of the popular Egg Attack Action Wolverine and Cyclops comes arguably their most infamous foe: Magneto! This highly articulated 6" Previews Exclusive EAA-083 X-Men Magneto figure includes a magnetic helmet to protect Magneto from Professor Xfs brainwave manipulation. With a focus on detail, the helmet has high grading paint-work using metallic like effects along with an impressive cloth costume that includes a cloak with adjustable built-in wiring, for the ultimate in possibility. Magneto even comes with effect accessories that include magnets built in for authentic magnetic action! Also included are two replacement faces, three pairs of replacement hands, a pair of magnetic Shock Wave special effect accessory discs, and one X-Men branded platform stand.

The Previews Exclusive EAA-083DX X-Men Magneto Deluxe Version comes with the same accessories as the standard version -- two replacement faces, three pairs of replacement hands, a pair of magnetic Shock Wave special effect accessory discs, and one X-Men branded platform stand -- but also includes exclusive accessories, such as an additional Erik Lehnsherr expression face and a large sculped gravel ruin scene.

Figures will arrives in stores on Feb. 26.



IDW PUBLISHING'S TRANSFORMERS: GALAXIES

IDW Publishing has announced a September launch for Transformers: Galaxies, which will feature story arcs that delve deeper into the origins, motivations, and machinations of the extended Transformers cast. Galaxies launches with a story arc dedicated to the fan-favorite crew, the Constructicons.

Written by Vox Media co-founder and lifelong Transformers devotee Tyler Bleszinski, with artwork by longtime Transformers artist, Livio Ramondelli, Transformers: Galaxies #1 uncovers the hidden secrets of Cybertrom's vast beauty and extraordinary cityscapes.

Here's how IDW describes the first arc:

"Long ago, after the War Against the Threefold Spark ended, the Constructicons emerged to help rebuild the decimated planet in grand fashion. But what happened to them in the years since? Why had they been erased from Cybertron's history... and what have they been planning for their devastating return?"

"I've dreamed of the day that I could somehow be involved in the Transformers universe," said Bleszinski. "Humanizing the Constructicons in a refreshed origin story with Livio Ramondelli -- one of the most talented Transformers artists ever -- will be one of the highlights of my life and will give me the opportunity to share my passion for these incredible creations with my kids' generation. This is truly a dream come true."

"Transformers: Galaxies delves into what's happening away from Cybertron," said editor David Mariotte. "Tyler and Livio are working on a story about broken promises and lost futures -- about those who fall by the wayside to maintain a utopia."

The first issue features covers by Livio Ramondelli and Nick Roche, and retailer Incentive covers by George Caltsoudas and Casey W. Coller.



KRYPTON: "WILL TO POWER"

Syfy has released images and details from "Will to Power," the episode of Krypton premiering on Wednesday, June 26.

Here's how the network describes the episode:
