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

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.

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.

Some time ago, I reviewed the Wolverine action figure released in the Hit Monkey wave of figures from Hasbro’s Marvel Legends line.

Astonishing Cyclops (Marvel Legends)

The more recent Astonishing Cyclops uses the same basic body mold developed for Archangel and a variety of characters with similar physiques.

Beetle would probably be one of the most striking characters included in the Marvel Legends Infinite Series by Hasbro.

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.

Hulk & Thor (Playskool Heroes)

As I have repeated several times, some character designs work well within the Playskool format, while others don’t really lend themselves to the conversion, and in this set we get to see an example of each.

A.I.M. Scientist

Of course, you can tell this AIM Scientist does not appear in the film just by looking at the decidedly comic book-inspired design.

Ultimate Goblin

Ultimate Goblin

Well, after getting all of the figures in the Spider-Man Marvel Legends Infinite Series, I ended up with more than enough pieces to build the Build-A-Figure, which is none other than the Ultimate’s version of the Green Goblin.

Toxin

Toxin

Toxin is another of those characters I knew almost nothing about prior to buying the figure. In fact, just by the look of him, I had assumed he was yet another Spider-Man foe, but as it turns out, he is actually one of the good guys despite his rather monstrous visage.

Spider-Girl

Spider-Girl is one of those characters I really know nothing about, but the visual aspect of the figure was enough of an encouragement for me to pick it up on sight.

Iron Man & War Machine (Playskool Heroes)

And for something slightly different, today I’ll be reviewing a couple of Playskool action figures: The Iron Man & War Machine set that was released early in 2014

Hydra Soldier (Marvel Legends Infinite Series)

Although Hydra, the criminal organization, is featured prominently in the second Captain America movie, truth is we don’t get to see them attired in an identifiably Hydra uniform.

Black Cat

Black Cat

Black Cat comes with the Urban Sirens moniker printed on her package, since she has a swap-out Spider-Girl variant and both characters ship in identical boxes.

Carnage

Carnage

Carnage has had rather few incarnations in plastic, but Hasbro deemed worthy to include him in the Marvel Legends Infinite Series line under the “Spawns of Symbiotes” moniker, along with fellow swap-out variant Toxin.

This action figure was released as part of the first wave from Hasbro’s Marvel Legends Infinite Series line dedicated to the second Amazing Spider-Man movie.

Superior Spider-Man

The figure I am reviewing today comes from the Marvel Legends Infinite Series assortment dedicated to promote the second Amazing Spider-Man movie, although this particular version of the wall-climber has nothing to do with the movie itself.

Marvel Now! Captain America

Marvel Now! Captain America

The figure is a completely new sculpture, and even though this uniform does not appear in the actual movie, the sculptor at Hasbro still wanted to go for a more plausible look by incorporating a lot of details and textures into the mix.

Electro

Electro

This version of Electro is wildly different from his comic-book roots, as he was given a spiffy-looking black bodysuit with a lot of extra details sculpted on, although I would be hard pressed to tell if these sculpted bits are actually screen accurate or not.
