With Spidey now part of the MCU, Bandai decided to add Marvel’s top guy to their S.H. Figuarts action figure series with his Stark tech suit from the Spider-Man Homecoming movie. Standing near 6 inches, this Spidey sports a movie accurate design with an amazing articulation system. Complimented with extra hands, alternate eyes, cell phone, weblines, and backpack, this Spidey has so many posing options to mess around with. Price at about $65.

Adventures in Toy Shopping: Power Up!

9 08 2014

It’s rare I find myself on a Saturday afternoon inside of Toysrus. I never ever find anything descent but for once I lucked out. Spotted the 2nd wave of Power Rangers Super Megaforce 5″ figures. We get some classic Reds from the past. Had to get Zeo Ranger V. Red Wildforce and Red Jungle Fury didn’t look too bad and I love how each figure isn’t reusing too manybody parts, especially in the glove and boots areas. Each of these sell for $9.99.

Snagged a couple of Marvel Legends Infinite Series Figures. 1st Gamora from the Guardians of the Galaxy movie which includes a Groot Build-A-Figure Part.

Next the Toysrus exclusive Cyclops with the X-Head design. I was never a Cyclops fan but ever since he killed Charles Xavier in the comics, I somewhat like his new black/red X-Head design. He includes a Build-A-Figure part for a very cool looking Jubilee. Each of these ML figures are $21.99. Ouch.

Adventures in Toy Shopping: Hasbro Avengers Assemble Animated Action Figures

24 08 2013

Scaling at about 3.75″ are these Avengers Assemble action figures based on the hit animated series on Disney XD. These figures have very nice packaging with comic art on the front of the card.

Here we have Captain America which is a reused figure from the Captain America First Avenger series just with light blue metallic paint job. Probably THE BEST recoloring on this figure to date.

Cap comes with a shield blast launcher. Note the reverseside of the shield cannot be attached to the arms of the figure. WTF?

You’ll need to grab an attachable Shield from another Captain America to complete this figure. Cap lacks a waist swivel and wrist and ankle articulation.

Hasbro Avengers Assemble Captain America 03

This version of the Red Skull maybe his best in the 4 inch scale to date. Loving the hat and overcoat that can be attached to the figure.

Hasbro Avengers Assemble Red Skull 01

The Red Skull includes a flame thrower type of weapon.

Hasbro Avengers Assemble Red Skull 02

This is a very cool figure with good articulation but needs a handgun and cosmic cube.

The invincible Iron Man looks to a be combination of different parts from earlier figures from the Iron Man 2 and Marvel Universe lines. The paint job uses a much plastic-looking colored red.

A thunder blade shield is included with Iron Man.

Hasbro Avengers Assemble Iron Man 02

This figure looks great but lacks double jointed knees and wrist and ankle articulation.

Hasbro Avengers Assemble Iron Man 03

Black Widow looks very cool with nice gold trims and cool head sculpt. I like how the hair has a little flare to it like its flowing in the wind.

Widow includes a inferno cannon.

Hasbro Avengers Assemble black widow 02

Widow is by far the best of the line and has lots of right articulation points with exception of a waist swivel and ankle rocking. You’ll need to borrow a handgun from another figure (I chose G.I. Joes) to really complete this figure.

The body mold of this Black Widow is the same one from the Avengers Movie line. Note the different hands, belt and gold paint app differences.

Even thought Hasbro is just reusing molds, adding minor new parts, doing repaints, the line is solid. These are just showing in retail shops like Toysrus and are priced the same as Marvel Universe figures ($9.99).





Adventures in Toy Shopping: Hasbro Marvel Legends Big Time Spider-Man

27 11 2012

The hardest of the Hasbro’s Arnim Zola Marvel Legends series is this Big Time Spider-Man. It’s been months since it 1st released and I spotted one the shelf at my local Target.

Box is very cool and I love the Spidey illustration by Ed McGuinness.

Overall, this figure sports a very green than black Spider-Man.

A closer look at his spider logos. You can also see the overpowering green that surrounds the logos. That color should be black in my opinion.

Much of this figure uses older parts like from the Black Spider-Man from the Target Exclusive Red Hulk series. The new parts are the head, forearms, hands, lower legs, and feet.
