The Amazing Spider-Man movie toys are the most underwhelming toys Hasbro has released in this downer year, but there’s still a few gems in the mix. Case in point, the great-looking Ultimate Doctor Octopus, who is one of the best-looking toys ever made on the eight-appendaged villain. But is he worthy of being called “ultimate”?

With debut issues currently staggered for release through August, Valiant is giving fans something fresh to look forward to all summer. This month brings us the first issue of the relaunched Harbinger, a series any comic fan should be familiar with as it was one of Valiant’s most acclaimed franchises in the early 90’s and one hell of a book. I’m glad to say the kick-off to the new series doesn’t disappoint – maintaining the general plot of the blockbuster original while playing around with great new takes on the characters and with a darker, more foreboding feel overall.

Hasbro has released the Amazing Spider-Man movie toys, and while the line is fairly underwhelming for collectors, there’s a few treasures buried in this line. The best of the bunch is the fantastic new Super-Articulated movie Spidey, who really shows how well Hasbro can pull off a great toy when they want to.

Ouch, that really hurt. While Sally becomes a woman, Don gets more aggressive than ever (at least, in the office), and we say an incredibly sad goodbye to a partner at SCDP. This had to be the gut-punching-est episode of Mad Men yet.

There’s a lot of vehicles out there for the GI Joe Retaliation series, and much like the rest of the line they range from pretty good to downright bad. While it looks like we won’t get past wave one of any size vehicle until 2013, on shelves now is the first assortment of larger scale Delta vehicles, and they’re worth a look for Joe fans.

The second installment of Valiant’s X-O Manowar relaunch hits shelves on Wednesday, June 6th and, while I typically try to avoid giving accolades to a series so early in its run, it’s already become one of the most fun and entertaining titles I’ve read in years.

The new X-O Manowar has already displayed a charm and relevance that rivals, if not exceeds, the original and I couldn’t recommend it more strongly.
