AIM Soldier

If I had to name one character from the Marvel Universe toy line I actively avoided to purchase for years, it would be hard not to mention the 2010 AIM Soldier.

Ghost Rider (Redux)

I have never read a Ghost Rider comic. My exposure to the character is mostly limited to the 200X movies and the rare cameo on the few Marvel Comics titles I read sporadically.

Mysterio

There was one particular episode that got aired repeatedly on local TV, featuring Mysterio, whose image got pretty much branded into my brain.

Silver Surfer

If you recall, Silver Surfer was one of the characters released right at the start of the Marvel Universe line, back in 2009, and the same figure was also released the following year alongside his master Galactus.

Hogun

Hogun was part of the second wave of figures that never really got significantly distributed in Mexico City, so I didn’t hesitate to pick him up at a local bazaar.

Exosphere Armor Iron Man

Exospheric Armor Iron Man is, fundamentally, a repaint of the Mark VI armor we got in the first few waves from the Iron Man 2 line.

Reactor Shift Iron Man

I was sorting out my collection the other day, and then I realized I never got the regular, non-light-gimmick Iron Man Mark VI armor, which is odd since those have been sitting forever at discount stores.

Thor (Blob Series)

One of the characters produced for the second wave in the Hasbro–made Marvel Legends line was Thor. But not just Classic Thor, but the bearded, Lord of Asgard version inspired by artist Walt Simonson’s run in the Thor comic books.

Heimdall

Heimdall

Heimdall has a rather distinctive character design. The armor seems designed to be more ceremonial than utilitarian, and the overall appearance is not quite as Asgardian as one would expect.

Captain Marvel

Ok, the thing about Captain Marvel here is that he is an entirely generic superhero action figure.

Hulk (Movie Series)

Hulk (Movie Series)

Movie Series Hulk is well over 8 inches tall and quite heavy. From what I can tell, the body proportions are quite accurate to the CGI model seen in the movie, but even with this height, this Hulk may still be not quite the right size in relation to the regular 6 inch Marvel characters.

Inferno Cannon Black Widow (Avengers Assemble)

Inferno Cannon Black Widow is sold under the S.H.I.E.L.D. Gear sub-line, which means she is a fairly decently articulated action figure and that she comes packaged with an accessory.

Cloak

I barely remember reading a Cloak & Dagger story in a comic book. I do recall that I did not care much for it either, as the plot was extremely dated although the powers of the titular duo were also rather bizarre.

Thor (Movie Series)

It is Thursday, once again. Well, not really, but all the same, today I bring yet another Thor action figure. This time it is the Avengers Movie Series Thor, released ny Habro as Walmart exclusives in the USA around the end of summer 2012.

Thor (Marvel Legends)

Well, since I find myself on something of an Asgardian bent, today I’ll talk to you about one figure that came out not too long ago in the Marvel Legends line.

Iron Monger (Build A Figure)

Well, completing this Iron Monger figure took a little bit more work than usual. First off, Hasbro released in two separate waves the action figures containing the pieces to build the ‘monger. This would not have been much to think about, except that both half-waves were released about 6 months apart from each other.

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.
