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.

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.

The 6-inch version of Boba Fett released in the second wave of figures from Hasbro’s Star Wars Black Series was surprisingly hard to find for me.

Xenomorph Warrior

When I began buying NECA action figures from the Predator and Alien series of movies, one figure I kept my eye out for was precisely any of the different Alien creatures.

Captain America (World War 2 Uniform)

I remember that when I saw the first wave of figures in the Marvel Legends Infinite Series for the Captain America: The Winter Soldier movie, I thought that Hasbro had made a mistake including the version of Captain America in his WWII uniform.

Scout Predator

Ever since I wetted my beak into NECA’s Predator figures, I wanted to get the original Predator from the first film, or at least a passable approximation, and this Scout Predator from Series 6 fits the bill perfectly.
