Adventures in Toy Shopping: Target Finds

20 06 2013

It’s been a few weeks and I really haven’t had much luck in spotting anything descent on the shelves but all that changed with this morning recent Target visit. Spotted a Hasbro Marvel Universe Nova figure and Transformers Voyager Class Springer. Oh Happy Day.

Nova is a favorite character of mine. I love his recent redesign a lot but the figure doesn’t really deliver. All he is a new head sculpt with gold armor bits attached.

Springer may be one of the best Hasbro TF figures to come out in years.  He doesn’t share the problem most recent TF toys have of being hollow in certain areas. He’s solid and extremely fun to mess with. His transformation between the 3 different modes (robot, car, helicopter) is clever and fun. His sculpt is just amazing and comes with really sool weapons. So impressed.

R244 Hasbro Ultimate Spider-Man Animated: Human Rocket Nova 6″ Action Figure Review

10 02 2013

Hasbro’s first wave of 6″ Ultimate Spider-Man Animated figures are here. Here’s the Human Rocket known as Nova. The figured is nicely sculpted but that’s all I can really say that’s positive. Watch the video and see what I think overall. Priced at $14.99 (Toysrus)

1st off, stopped by my local Toysrus and spotted series 1 of Hasbro’s Ultimate Spider-Man 6″ action figures. Only picked up the Ultra Strike Spidey which had Super Pose-ability and Nova. Priced at $14.99 each. Steep, especially for non-plastic shell protected figures. Passed on Iron Spider and a darker colored version of Spidey with less articulation.
