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.

AIM Soldier

If I had to name one character from the Marvel Universe toy line I actively avoided to purchase for years, it would be hard not to mention the 2010 AIM Soldier.

Draa was one of the Clone Troopers serving on Geonosis under Clone Commander Gree and Jedi General Luminara Unduli. Draa first appeared in the Star Wars: The Clone Wars second season episode Weapons Factory, although he was never referred to by name during the episode.

Thorin Oakenshield (6 inch)

One thing I find really interesting about the figures made by The Bridge Direct is that each character scupt is the exact same regardless of scale, and then blown up or shrinked down for each line segment.

General Grievous (Battle Damage)

Even though Hasbro did release General Grievous more than once in the animated-style Clone Wars line, it was one of those characters I didn’t felt like paying the whole price for.
