I've been collecting action figures since the original Kenner Star Wars days. Nowadays, I still collect pretty much anything that catches my eye.

Sad Gizmo

I wasn’t really expecting to find Gizmo. After all, he was featured in Series 1 of NECA’s Reel Toys line devoted to the Gremlins movies that was released a couple of years now, so I was fairly sure I would probably never find him in the wild.

She-Hulk

She-Hulk was one of the figures I was most curious about when Hasbro announced her inclusion in Marvel Universe Series 4. Of course, distribution being what it is, she was part of the wave of figures I never saw at local retail.

Brown Gremlin

The Brown Gremlin is something of a generic army builder type of figure, and uses the same body mold we got with the Flasher Gremlin in Series 1, only this time we don’t get the soft rubber trench coat and the color is different.

Colossus was a 2010 release from the HAMMER Files series of figures and is also one of the very few characters that required completely unique molds to produce.

Lenny

The first gremlin I got is Lenny, who appears in the second movie and seems to be what one would call a “special” type of Gremlin.

Doc Samson

Well, in my Gray Hulk review I mentioned that at some point in his story, Bruce Banner had a split personality disorder. Well, guess who diagnosed him with that? Why, none other than the subject of today’s review, Dr. Leonard Samson.

Ezio Auditore (The Mentor)

Ezio Auditore The Mentor, wears clothing very similar to the garments he used in the Italian City States, and NECA did a really good job in capturing in plastic the look of the digital models.

Gray Hulk

One thing I did not know was that Hulk used to be gray back in his first comic book appearance, but apparently this caused problems in the printing process, so he had to be changed to green.

Artillery Armor War Machine

In a toy line ripe with repaints of the same few action figure molds, it is something of a surprise that War Machine did not get as many different versions as the Iron Man Mark IV and VI armors had.

Quinlan Vos (CW36)

I never quite got Quinlan Vos. He seems derivative of so many other characters from the Star Wars Expanded Universe, but that doesn’t seem to prevent him from being made into action figures over and over.

Andalusian Horse

After watching The Hobbit movie last year, I began looking for small ponies to display alongside some of the figures, but I had no luck. I did find, however, an Andalusian horse that I thought would work well as Shadowfax, the horse Gandalf rides in the last couple Lord of the Rings movies.

Private William Hudson

As one of the few Colonial Marines left standing in James Cameron’s Aliens movie. It totally makes sense to me that NECA chose Private William Hudson to stand alongside Corporal Hicks in their Aliens action figure line.
