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

Captain Marvel

Ok, the thing about Captain Marvel here is that he is an entirely generic superhero action figure.

I was not really expecting NECA to follow through with their 1:18 scale Gears of War action figures. I figured they’d do the first series and leave it at that, but apparently I was wrong and they came up with three more figures for Series 2.

Hulk (Movie Series)

Hulk (Movie Series)

Movie Series Hulk is well over 8 inches tall and quite heavy. From what I can tell, the body proportions are quite accurate to the CGI model seen in the movie, but even with this height, this Hulk may still be not quite the right size in relation to the regular 6 inch Marvel characters.

Inferno Cannon Black Widow (Avengers Assemble)

Inferno Cannon Black Widow is sold under the S.H.I.E.L.D. Gear sub-line, which means she is a fairly decently articulated action figure and that she comes packaged with an accessory.

Augustus Cole

The last character in NECA’s second wave of 1:18 scale Gears of War action figures is Augustus Cole. Again, not having played the GoW videogames, I have no real personal connection to the character, but I will concede that he is possibly the best looking in his wave.

Cloak

I barely remember reading a Cloak & Dagger story in a comic book. I do recall that I did not care much for it either, as the plot was extremely dated although the powers of the titular duo were also rather bizarre.

Sandtrooper (Black Series)

A couple years ago, when someone asked me what would it take for me to stop collecting the Hasbro Star Wars action figures I stated that barring a change in scale, I would be pretty much buying them as long as they made them.

I am still one generation behind as far as gaming consoles go, meaning that I have no means of playing Borderlands 2, a game that served as inspiration for the subject of today’s review.

2013 Year in Review

2013 felt very disjointed for me in terms of collecting. Looking back, I still got some very neat items, but the pacing was completely atrocious for most of the year.

Bounty hunters are pretty much prevalent in the Star Wars universe, although up until the computer animated series we had not really see them actually doing much.

Iron Monger (Build A Figure)

Well, completing this Iron Monger figure took a little bit more work than usual. First off, Hasbro released in two separate waves the action figures containing the pieces to build the ‘monger. This would not have been much to think about, except that both half-waves were released about 6 months apart from each other.

Ultron

The subject of today’s review is one of the rare villains that I actually knew a little about from his brief appearance in the Secret Wars story arc, back in the 90’s. I am referring, of course to Ultron; one of the characters released in the second half of action figures in the Iron Man Legends line by Hasbro.

501st Legion Clone Trooper

Well, even though this figure was released sometime last year, Hasbro saw fit to include the 501st Legion Clone Trooper (VC60) in the “Greatest Hits” wave in the now-paused Star Wars Vintage Collection, which recently afforded me the chance to add it to my collection.
