Thor: Ragnarok Collectibles that bring the thunder.
It’s been a week since Thor: Ragnarok hit movie theaters, and it’s safe to say that fans really like this one.
It has already crossed $500 million at the global box office, and it’s the most well received Thor movie critically by a considerable margin. Heck, people are even naming it the best Marvel movie of all time, which is a bold claim considering the success of the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Is this all just new-movie hype? Maybe, but who says hype can’t be fun?
If you’re feeling the hype, then take a look at these collectibles that would make the gods proud. Well, we hope they’d make the gods proud anyway. I certainly wouldn’t want them to be disappointed.
5: Casual Hulk Funko Pop!
If it exists in pop culture, there’s probably a Funko Pop! figure for it. Marvel and Funko have enjoyed a lucrative relationship for years now, so naturally Thor: Ragnarok would be no exception.
Sure, there are other Thor: Ragnarok Pops out there, but Casual Hulk earns points for being a convention exclusive item. It’s still easy to buy online, but… you know, just seeing the “exclusive” sticker on the box makes it feel more special.
4: Marvel Cinematic Universe: Phase One – Avengers Assembled
Perhaps not exclusively a Thor collectible, but I had to ask myself “how could I watch the original Thor while spending the most money possible?”
Aside from renting a private theater to watch the movie in while ordering an autographed Mickey Mantle baseball card on Amazon, I came up with buying this Marvel box set. Marvel Cinematic Universe: Phase One is a 10 disc collection of all the movies leading up to the first Avengers film, all wrapped up in some appropriately elaborate packaging. Finding it nowadays will probably set you back $100+ on the second-hand market, so happy hunting for this one!
3: Thor: For Asgard #6
For those whose eyes seek the finer things in life, check out this canvas painting by Italian artist Simone Bianchi.
Bianchi has drawn covers for Marvel on works like X-Men Unlimited, so he’s certainly proven his worth in the comic book industry. If you want this on your wall, it’ll set you back $180 (or $400 if you want it signed). Now, that may seem expensive, but by my calculations it’s still less than 1/227th the price of an autographed Mickey Mantle baseball card on Amazon. So, you know, it’s actually pretty cheap when you look at it that way.
2: Sideshow’s Thor
Every time I look at comic book collectibles, a figure from Sideshow Collectibles inevitably comes up and I get envious of anyone who owns one all over again. Their take on Thor is another case of a collectible that I want to own simply because of how good it looks.
Well, to be fair, this one is still a pre-order, so I can’t get too upset about it. This 12”, sixth scale figure comes complete with interchangeable hands and a removable collar, giving you freedom over how you want this mighty statue to look in your inventory. If you have $250 to spare, then you can toss your money at your screen via Sideshow’s store page.
1: Hot Toys’ Hela
If you need more exquisite Thor: Ragnarok statue pre-orders, then we’ve got another one for you hot off the presses. Due in part to the overwhelming success of Thor: Ragnarok, Hot Toys is bringing the Goddess of Death herself to an ultra fan’s shelf near you!
Based directly off of Cate Blanchett’s depiction of her in the movie, Hela is slated to come with numerous bonus accessories, 4 interchangeable hands, and 28 points of articulation! Though we can’t say for sure how in demand Hela is going to be, everything that’s been revealed so far has been Hela enticing. Yes, this entire list has been an elaborate build up for me to make that one awful pun. You have all been bamboozled.
… The figure’s still pretty cool though.
