  • Marvel Universe Puck Figure Solicited

    This month's Diamond Previews Catalog includes the Solicitation for the long-awaited Puck action figure.

    Page 406 of the January 2013 catalog features an advert for the March 2013 launch of the figures, orderable by wave.



    The figure comes with a Snowbird-in-bird-form attachment and a collectible card of the Puck-centric cover to Volume 1 Issue 5 and also features new, original packaging artwork by Mike Deodato Jr:

      Looks more like a seagull, not an owl

      Agreed, doesn't look like an owl. But a good looking Puck image and figure.

      Why does it say Marvel's Puck? Why not Alpha Flight's Puck? Does DC have a Puck character? Please help me to understand.

      I think it's because the name Puck is in the public domain & thus can't be trademarked, possibly because of use in Shakespear?
      I know there's a Puck in DC/Vertigo's Sandman.
      Similar thing with Hercules.

      Any chance you can scan the entire solicit, with the other characters and text?

      Sure. It's not scan-friendly though so I'm not guaranteeing a quality image.

      No worries, I know what the quality's like; that's why I couldn't justify the cost just for the one advert.

      Strangest looking owl, I've ever seen...Puck looks good, though.

      Yeah, I'm guessing it's changed since the original conception so I might just change it to 'bird form'

      Well, that owl won't be replacing my existing Snowbird owl, but it's good that this figure is finally getting released!

      Congrats, if so.

      Ah, the waiting game's boring. Let's play Hungry Hungry Hippos!
