Classic Iron Man (Iron Man Legends)

Last but not least, I got this classic version of Iron Man, released as part of the Iron Monger wave of figures produced by Hasbro and sold under the Iron Man Legends brand.

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.

Thor (Battle Hammer)

With the second Thor movie a few weeks away from opening at theaters, I still have not found a single merchandise item at local stores. However, I was not entirely denied, as I did acquire and action figure from the previous movie line.

So, after a rather lengthy drought at stores, the new action figures associated to the Avengers Assemble cartoon are finally trickling down at my usual jaunts.

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.

Iron Patriot (Pop! Vinyl Bobble Head)

Since I already reviewed War Machine, this shouldn’t come as much of a surprise. Since I saw him for a good price, I really couldn’t pass up getting get the repainted movie version of Iron Patriot. I’m not a huge fan of the colors for a weapon armor, but, he looked pretty cool so I […]

Nick Fury (Pop! Vinyl Bobble Head)

As you may know, I’m bald. I’m also a bit angry. So when I saw the Nick Fury Pop! Vinyl, I couldn’t pass him up. For a fairly small figure, he captures Fury’s attitude pretty well. The two tiny fists of fury are balled up making him look like he’s itching for a fight. All […]

War Machine (Pop! Vinyl Bobble Head)

I’ll say it. I prefer the War Machine armor over the Iron Man armor. No, I’m not saying war is the solution to things. I just think it makes more sense. Of course, it’s hard to be warlike when you are stylized as a bobble head. Fan’s of Funko will not be surprised by his […]

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.

Lt. Col. James Rhodes

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.

Storm Surge Armor Iron Man

Well, today I’ll be reviewing yet another Iron Man action figure that I find to be more deserving of being a part of your collection than any of the current 4-inch Iron Man 3 offerings by Hasbro, even though it is a repaint of a figure we got a couple of years back.

Iron Man Mark 42

Well, avoiding the 4-inch Assemblers and the even cheaper single carded Iron Man figures was easier than I thought. These will eventually drop in price to a point where I may consider buying one or two just for archival purposes, but the one figure I could not let slip by is the 6-inch version of the latest Iron Man 3 armor.

Archangel (Marvel Legends)

Well, after completing the Build-A-Figure from the Hit Monkey wave in Hasbro’s 2013 Marvel Legends assortment, I would not need to get any of the other figures which don’t have any extra piece packaged with them, Right?

Wolverine (Marvel Legends)

Lucky me, the Wolverine released in this series is the one attired in the X-Force uniform, which is fundamentally his Astonishing costume with the yellow bits replaced by gray, or in this case, a slightly blue-ish silver color.

Well, oddly enough, one figure I was missing in my Marvel Universe collection until a few weeks ago was precisely the first ever Iron Man suit released in this line.

Protector (Marvel Legends)

The third figure I picked up from the Hit Monkey wave of figures is Protector. Again, this is a character I don’t really know much about, but I do remember seeing him (or someone attired like him) in an episode of Avengers: Earth’s Mightiest Heroes, so I knew he is supposed to be some sort of Kree alien.

Guardian’s costume is a deceptively simple one, consisting basically in a skin-tight attire with a cowl, with a color scheme patterned after the Canadian flag. The only original piece of sculpting is the head, which is well detailed, although a little bit on the generic side of things.
