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

Big Time Spider-Man

Big Time Spider-Man was released in the Marvel Legends line as part of the Arnim Zola wave, and he is depicted in a full black suit with bright green lines forming the spider symbol on his chest and running alongside his limbs.

Dutch (Jungle Extraction)

Right from the start, I knew that I would go for the Jungle Extraction Dutch. Even though Arnold Schwarzenegger appears only during the first third of the movie in this uniform, I think this is the look that better depicts his character.

Rhino

One of the aspects I like most about collecting the Marvel Universe line is that characters with unusual bulk and design get released on a fairly regular basis, which adds a nice amount of variety to any action figure display.

Elektra

Even though I never really read Daredevil comics growing up, Elektra is one of those secondary characters that kick started the whole Ninjas-Are-Cool trend back in the day so, she was one of the characters I wanted the most to see in action figure form when the Marvel Universe line started.

ARC Commander Blitz (Defend Kamino Battle Pack)

ARC Commander Blitz shares the same molds for upper legs, torso and upper arms with the regular non-removable helmet clones but his appearance is strikingly different thanks to a number of newly tooled pieces.

Lady Jaye (Retaliation)

I began collecting G.I. Joes rather late in the game. I never got the chance to find several of the characters that made frequent appearances in the cartoons nor the comic books. One of those was Lady Jaye, so I jumped at the chance to add her to my collection as she came out in the G.I. Joe Retaliation line by Hasbro.

Claw General Zod

After getting one Superman figure from Mattel’s Man of Steel line, I decided to round up my collection with a more visually interesting character.

This is one of the Battle Packs released in 2011, inspired by one of the more memorable episodes in the third season of the Clone Wars TV show.

Flint (Retaliation)

Despite the recent efforts by Hasbro to reduce articulation all across their action figure lines, I still went out and bought yet another action figure of one of the characters from the second G.I. Joe movie.

April O’Neil

After getting all four of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, I found myself craving some more of those toys. After a quick inspection to the stock available at my local stores, I decided to go for the one that seemed to be the less abundant in the first series of figures by Playmates.

Moto Superman

If asked what action figure line was the most disappointing in 2013, it would be hard to come up with any other than Mattel’s 4-inch scale line for the Man of Steel movie.

Aayla Secura

Aayla Secura is one of the few characters in the prequels that had always come out looking gorgeous in action figure form.

Cyber Ninja (Retaliation)

Cyber Ninja (Retaliation)

The Cobra Cyber Ninja is not a terrible concept, but execution leaves something to be desired. The Cyber ninja wears bulky armored vests over a very generic body sculpt. In fact, the whole figure is kitbashed from various sources, most notably the Rise of Cobra EliteViper, with a head taken from some vehicle driver and the legs from the wave 1 version of Storm Shadow.

Lieutenant Thire (Clone Wars)

Well, today I’ll be reviewing Clone Lieutenant Thire, from the Clone Wars gift set released back in 2011. Lieutenant Thire had already been released both as a single carded figure (2009) and in a two-pack with another member of his team (2010), but since those releases are long gone now, I had to get a boxed set to get him.

1942 WLA Flathead Harley Davidson

Well, today I’ll be talking about something a little different, a 1:18 vehicle I found at a local store. The vehicle is a WLA 1942 Flathead Harley Davidson motorcycle, and was produced by Maisto.

Mace Windu & Jango Fett (Jedi Force)

One aspect I really enjoy about collecting these type of figures, is how stress-free it has been. Hasbro releases about half a dozen sets a year, which is considerably less than the number of figures released on the other 3.75-inch. lines. And unlike those other lines, the Jedi Force sets are pretty much available all year round.

Iron Patriot

This Iron Patriot was the figure I wanted the least back when Hasbro released the first half of the Iron Man Legends line, to the point that I’d wait until the second half of the wave was released before deciding if I could be bothered to complete the BAF.

Darth Maul with Sith Speeder (Jedi Force)

I am quite enthralled by the rebooted Jedi Force line by Hasbro. I find that in general, the figures are very well made and offer a pretty good value, especially the figure 2-packs. One of the new 2013 releases in this line is none other than Darth Maul and his Sith Speeder, which I’ll be reviewing today.

Well, after I got the Mark 42 Iron Man action figure from the Iron Man Legends line, I knew I needed the Iron Patriot armor also seen in the Iron Man 3 movie.
