Lady Deadpool

A couple years back, in comics, the ever-popular Deadpool got into interdimensional travel, where he found slightly different versions of himself; one such incarnation had a complete set of XX chromosomes.

Apparently, Spider-Man has become one of those superheroes that genuinely can boast of a plethora of suits for every occasion.

Marvel Legends Walgreen’s Punisher

Truth be told. I should have wrote this before I opened the One:12 Collective Punisher. I didn’t. I’m sorry for that, because they are the same scale there I want to compare them. Which really isn’t fair since there is a 3x price differential.  What I do like about this figure is that it is […]

One:12 Collective The Punisher: Accessories (Part 3)

Okay. This is the everything else post. Mainly what we’re finishing up with are heads, hands, and the stand. To capture the many moods of Frank Castle, Mezco included 3 different heads. One is normal, the second is open mouth yelling and the last is a beat up, end of battle head. One thing I […]

One:12 Collective The Punisher: Weapons (Part 2)

Frank Castle is a bit of an anomaly in a universe where the heroes can shoot webs, have unbreakable skin, or can envelop themselves in flame. He’s just a dude. And a dude fighting hand to hand isn’t going to cut. So The Punisher tends to favor all manner of weapons. Since a good portion […]

One:12 Collective Punisher (Part 1)

I think you guys know by now, I’m normally a 3.75″ collector. It’s what I’ve collected since I was a kid. With The Punisher being one of my favorite characters, I’m always tempted by other versions. I had been eyeing the Sideshow Collectibles version of him last year. Being a 12 inch figure, it was […]

Iron Spider vs Electro

I was shopping for groceries the other day when a bright flash of color caught my eye behind the counter. It was the Iron Spider vs Electro 2-pack from the Playskool Marvel superheroes line by Hasbro.

Deadpool (Marvel Super Hero Mashers)

The Marvel super Hero Mashers line has to be one of the weirdest concepts Hasbro has put out there in quite a while. The idea of mixing and matching pieces from several of the more iconic Marvel superheroes to form a hybrid is one that at first sight may appeal mostly to the youngest of children.

Sandman (Marvel Infinite Series)

In a rather unusual fashion, Sandman was released with two different paint variants and apparently, in the same quantities so neither one was significantly more difficult to obtain.

Black Panther

With the third installment of the Captain America movies looming in the horizon, Hasbro has been rather sneaky and instead of revealing early too much about the movie designs, they opted to go for a more comic-inspired look for this Black Panther action figure.

Wasp (Marvel Universe Infinite Series)

I am not exactly sure how much is coincidence and how much is actual planning when I see Hasbro producing figures for second-tier characters way in advance of they becoming relevant due to a mention or an appearance in any of the Marvel movies.

Groot

Groot

For me, one of the things that made this Groot figure so attractive is the fact that it can be used to serve a wide number of roles, either as a generic Ent, a Forest Elemental or simply as a really big Groot to go along my Marvel Universe figures.

To round up the reviews for the regular figures from Hasbro’s Guardians of the Galaxy Marvel Legends Infinite Series, today I bring you none other than the main hero, the infamous (in his own mind, at least): Star-Lord!

Rocket Raccoon

One thing from the Guardians of the Galaxy movie trailer that really struck me as completely bizarre was seeing the CGI Rocket Raccoon being such a bad-ass. Right there I knew that Hasbro had to make toys of that character and that I would buy them, no questions asked.

Iron Man (Deep Space Armor)

The very first figure I bought from the Guardians of the Galaxy assortment in the Marvel Legends Infinite Series was actually not in the movie at all. It was none other than Iron Man in his Deep Space Armor.

Punisher Pop! Vinyl

I really kind of dig Punisher. Maybe I like to think there is a little badass in me that would stand up to the wrongs of this world no matter the cost. Maybe I like shooting things and wearing black clothes with skulls on them. Either way I couldn’t resist this little guy when I […]

Since I had already decided that I wanted the Groot BAF, I went on and bought Nova, even though I did not expect the figure to be as good as it turned out to be.
