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 […]

Nova (Marvel Legends)

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.

Drax the Destroyer (Marvel Legends)

Drax the Destroyer may still not be a household name, even after the success of the Guardians of the Galaxy movie, but at the very least his action figure turned out to be quite great.

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.

Hyperion (Infinite Series)

I am not a fan of the Hyperion character. I’ve already bought the 6-inch Marvel Legends figure that came out with the Hit Monkey wave mostly because of the Build-A Figure parts, but I was certainly was not expecting to see a 4-inch version of that character anytime soon.

Halo 4 Master Chief (Series 2)

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.
