Adventures in Toy Shopping: Hasbro Marvel Legends Scarlet Spider (Kaine Parker)

7 08 2013

Always awesome to add a new Spider-Man figure to my collection. Picked up Scarlet Spider (Kaine Parker, clone of Spider-Man) as part Hasbro’s Marvel Legends Rocket Raccoon Series.

He’s basically a repaint of the Big Time Spider-Man mold. Good mold to reuse.

His design is very simplistic. Black and Red with your Spider logos.

Not at all a bad figure to add to any Spidey collector’s shelf. (about $14.99, Target)

R263 Medicom Toy MAFEX Amazing Spider-Man Movie Figure Review

10 05 2013

Medicom Toy breaks into the action figure market with their MAFEX series. What better way to start off the line with movie version of the Amazing Spider-Man. Standing about 6.5″ tall, this figure is made of high quality plastic and movie accurate design/sculpting. The most impressive feature is in the articulation system. Nearly identical to Bandai’s S.H. Figuarts line, this Spidey can be posed in the most dynamic ways possible. He includes a variety of extra hands, 3 web lines, and a clear plastic display stand. Pretty price at about $55 (bigbadtoystore.com) but this figure definitely delivers like no other Spider-Man action figure has ever done…quite possibly the best articulated Spidey to date.

This figure sculpting has a movie accurate physique.

He stands just a bit taller than previous movie based Spidey figures. [Toy Biz Spider-Man 2 movie to the left & Hasbro Amazing Spider-Man Movie to the right]

Medicom MAFEX Amazing Spider-Man 05

The articulation system is amazing and is very similar to Bandai’s S.H. Figuarts series.. Flexibility is outstanding.

Medicom MAFEX Amazing Spider-Man 03

There wasn’t any pose I really couldn’t put this guy through. If you saw it in the movie, you can get it here.

Medicom MAFEX Amazing Spider-Man 04

With extra hands, web lines, and a display stand, this is a Spidey figure that will change the action figure game. Hasbro…you’ve been warned.

Adventures in Toy Shopping: Hasbro Marvel Legends Steve Rogers

27 11 2012

Another tough figure to find in the Marvel Legends is Steve Rogers. The former Captain America (at the time) donned a new uniform and became more of a secret agent than a star spangled Avenger.

Awesome packaging by Hasbro with art by Ed McGuinness.

The figure is awesome. Cool looking costume, nice colors, and great looking head sculpt.

He includes his shield and 2 handguns.

Shield can peg into his back.

If you’re a Cap fan this is one for you.
