COLLECTOR’S CORNER #2 (August 11th)

Soundwave Presents



Hey, everybody! It's Comic Book John, again, with a new installment of THE COLLECTOR'S CORNER!

What's The Collector's Corner?

Every week, on Tuesday, we'll have a new article showing items that we've bought, traded for, and received on consignment. We're always buying and trading with people and there's always one thing, or another, that sticks out.  From older, or landmark comics, to amazingly-crafted statues, we've got things for any and all collectors, no matter the preference! And we want to make sure you're all aware that they're available to you!

SHIELD Agent Phil Coulson

Funko POP! Figure

Signed by Actor Clark Gregg

11813393_940251469369451_2532625676271080682_nFrom "That guy from the first Iron Man", to the martyr of The Avengers film, SHIELD Agent Phil Coulson and actor Clark Gregg have become fan favorites among both Marvel Comics fans, and the public at large, warranting him a role as the star of Marvel's Agents of SHIELD on ABC.

And, here, at Soundwave, we've got a limited edition Agents of SHIELD Phil Coulson, signed by actor Clark Gregg, himself!

This signed Coulson figure comes with a Certificate of Authenticity, with PICTURE PROOF of Clark Gregg signing the POP! Vinyl figure, from Celebrity Authentics.

The bobblehead also comes with a sticker of authenticity from Celebrity Authentics.

The figure comes in its complete, original, packaging.

For this signed, limited edition piece, it can be yours for $89.99!

Clark Gregg portrayed the role of the Marvel Cinematic Universe original character of SHIELD Agent Phil Coulson in the films Iron Man, Iron Man 2, Thor, Captain America: The First Avenger, and The Avengers. He reprised the role in Marvel's "One-Shot" short-films "The Consultant" and "A Funny Thing Happened on The Way to Thor's Hammer".
Gregg soon returned to the role of a revived Agent Coulson in the post-Avengers events depicted in Agents of SHIELD's first and second seasons, and will continue to do so for season 3, later this year.

The character, since rising to popularity, has also been adapted for comics, starring in books such as the Marvel NOW!'s The Secret Avengers and SHIELD.

Marvel Select Figures

The Avengers: Age of Ultron & Ant-Man

Ant-Man, Black Widow, and Thor

11863243_940247846036480_4690775212643215417_nWe've gotten some new Marvel Select figures in, last week, based on the Marvel Cinematic Universe versions of Marvel's popular heroes!




The summer blockbuster no one expected, Marvel's ANT-MAN came out last month, and just in time for that character's popularity boom Marvel has released the action figure based on the film version of the character!

Scott Lang was a rehabilitated thief when he's recruited by former Ant-Man Hank Pym to help him in a sabotage plot against Pym's former protege, Darren Cross.

This accurately-crafted figure comes with a miniaturized ("ant-sized") model, along with several inter-changeable hands.

You get this here, at Soundwave, for JUST $24.99!




The highly-popular Black Widow gets a brand-new figure, based on her redesign from Marvel's THE AVENGERS: AGE OF ULTRON.

The figure, made to look like actress Scarlet Johanson, comes with an assortment of weapons, and a stand.

We've got her at $24.99, at the store! And we've only got two! Get them while they're still here! We can't guarantee they'll be here for very long!


Another figure based on redesigns from Marvel's THE AVENGERS: AGE OF ULTRON, we've also got Thor!

The figure is sculpted to look like actor Chris Hemsworth, in his new look from the summer blockbuster.

As with out other Marvel Select figures, he's $24.99. Get them while they're still here!


DC Comics Designer Series

[Batman Artist] Greg Capullo



BATMAN (Zero Year Costume)

Among Scott Snyder's and Greg Capullo's many achievements with the Batman series, one of the best arcs has to be ZERO YEAR.

Zero Year retold Batman's earliest days, pretty much rewriting "Batman: Year One" to fit The DC New 52 universe, at the time. Inspired by Batman's Golden Age costume, purple gloves and all, Capullo set out to keep close to Batman's roots, while making the suit look grounded, and modern, and he did a magnificent job at it! 

This piece is going for $24.95, and we don't have too many! So, make sure to grab yourself one of these magnificently-crafted figures before we're all out! 


During Scot Snyder's and Greg Capullo's earliest issues of their Batman run, their first blockbuster event were NIGHT OF THE OWLS. In it, it was revealed that one of Nightwing's ancestors was a member of the Court of Owls as a Talon, the Court's assassins. With that said, Nightwing plays a part in the larger story, and we have Greg Capullo's depiction of him in figure form, from it! 

This figure is $24.95, and is another great piece to your action figure collection!




In Batman Annual #1, we were introduced to a revamped version of Mr. Freeze for the New 52. While Capullo didn't do the original artwork that reintroduced the character, we do have a figure sculpted after his depiction of that version of Mr. Freeze! He comes with a detachable helmet and a ice cannon. He's just $24.95, here, at Soundwave!

*Also available, from based on Greg Capullo's work: Commissioner Gordon, Batgirl, and Catwoman
