Adventures in Shopping: Catching Up

22 11 2014

The frequency of video reviews has been down as of late but I have been picking up new items for my collection, just have no plans to review everything due to lack of time. Here’s what I’ve picked up in the past month’s time. Enjoy the pictures.

First up a Bandai Power Rangers Super Megaforce 5″ figure of Timeforce’s Red Ranger from Target ($8.99).

Time Red

Hasbro’s 3.34″ Star Wars Black series repackaged Darth Malgus. Been hunting for him and lucky for me got him from Toysrus ($9.99)

Darth Malgus

Walgreen’s had to my surprise a Hasbro 6″ Star Wars Return of the Jedi Luke Skywalker ($19.99).

Luke01

A very impressive figure but his eyes balls were way too big so I repainted them to be smaller.

Luke02

At my local Fry’s Electronics, I spotted the DC Multiverse 4″ Batman based off the upcoming Arkham Knight video game ($8.99)

Arkham Knight Batman 01

a very impressive sculpted and painted figure. Note the cloth cape.

Arkham Knight Batman 02

For a 4″ figure, he has some pretty good articulation. He lacks a bicep swivel, ankle articulation and ab crunch but he has everything else a DC Classics 6″ figure would have which is very surprising.

Arkham Knight Batman 03

Arkham Knight Batman 04

If you happen to own the Harley Quinn mini-figure that came with the Batman Assault on Arkham DVD box set from Best Buy, he scales perfectly with her.

Arkham Knight Batman 05

Lastly, I was able to track down a Target exclusive Marvel Legends Infinite series Ms. Marvel on eBay. She was part of a 3 pack but I just wanted her. I paid aftermarket prices cause I’m a huge Ms. Marvel fan. Paint apps are a bit sloppy in a few areas but not super terrible. Her body mold is basically a repaint of the Moonstone figure. Overall, one of my favorite female Marvel Legends to date. Love Ms. Marvel!
