Grim Reaper

It is no secret that a good number of my action figure purchases are directly inspired by the video games I indulge upon.

Mara Jade

Even though Black Series Mara Jade is still a pretty decent action figure, it is also the first Star Wars figure I have ever bought, whose purchase owes more to external reasons than to the actual merits of the figure.

One thing McFarlane Toys does regularly with their Halo lines, is re-issuing Spartan action figures as much as they can. This holds true also for Halo 4, where for Series 2 we get treated to yet another release of the Master Chief in his more recent set of armor.

Sabretooth (Marvel Legends)

This version of X-Men baddie Sabretooth is another of those based off the Hyperion body mold, which is suitably bulky and tall. Sabretooth is massively muscular, and this particular version of his costume lacks any of the furry bits usually associated with the character.

You may be surprised to learn that there was no mention of Sergeant Craig Windrix anywhere in the Alien mythos, be it movies, books or even comics.

Harley Quinn & Joker (Imaginext)

Harley Quinn & Joker came out in 2014 in the DC Superheroes Imaginext line, and they both are quite interesting figures to look at.

Wonder Woman & Superman (Imaginext)

A thing that has been somewhat absent from the Imaginext line is female characters, but that also seems to be changing nowadays. Case in point, the other day at the store I found a 2-pack set of figures that includes Superman and Wonder Woman.

Wasp Predator

After getting me some of NECA’s Predator figures and fulfilling my requirement for movie-based designs, I just knew that I would still go back and get some more of these figures even if they were actually non-canonical versions of these alien hunters.
