PiercingMetal Thoughts: As you know, I seldom purchase the variant covers for anything but just love sharing the news and visuals with you all. These will be great additions for those who are collecting the highly poseable “Marvel Rising” dolls and based on their age of collector, I’ll be posting any updates on that line of Hasbro Toys over on “The Chronicles Of Piercing Ken” website so please make sure to keep an eye on the “Toys & Collectibles” category of that outlet. That’s all I have about this one my friends and there is so much more to come (trust me on that). See you next time and let me know what you think of these down below in the comments section.
