Classic Captain America

Hasbro has had quite a large number of Captain America action figures made in recent years and even though I did pick up a fair share of them, my collection still lacked a classic version of him until the release of Marvel Universe Series 5.

Kamen Rider Gaim – Arms Change Orange Arms Review

Here’s where it all comes together for Bandai’s Kamen Rider Arms change figures. Just like the show, you can pop a fruit on their shoulders and transform their armor. Yeah, it’s a gimmick, but it’s one that is done well here.   They took some effort to make the fruits fold up like they do […]

Kamen Rider Gaim – Arms Change Basic Figure

There are a number of different Kamen Rider Gaim figures. Ranging from zero articulation to Figuarts level. My original intention was Gaim was going to be my first Figurarts figure. However, the mid range “Arms Change” series figures were just too tempting. If you read Monday’s take on the show, you know that this version […]

Luke Skywalker X-Wing Pilot (Black Series)

To be honest, one of the figures I was less excited about from Hasbro’s Star Wars Black Series was precisely this version of Luke Skywalker in his X-Wing pilot uniform.

Spartan Warrior

Spartan Warrior

The level of detail on the Spartan Warrior is quite nice, with deeply recessed panels and heavily textured surfaces. The helmet has a narrower visor and extra armor that lends the appearance of a snout, but the design is still easily identifiable as a UNSC Spartan.

R2-D2 (Black Series)

When I learned about the sightings of the first wave of 6-inch Star Wars Black Series in my city, I was reluctant at first but after a little pondering, my intention shifted from getting just the one Sandtrooper to maybe picking up the R2-D2.

RoboCop 3.0

I just assumed that Jada Toys would simply paint the RoboCop 1.0 black and call it a day, but as it turns out, I was completely wrong.

Iron Man (Zero Gravity Armor)

Essentially, this Zero-G suit is a repaint of the Modular Armor version released back in Series 3, which I think is one of the best Iron Man armors released in the Marvel Universe line.

RoboCop 1.0

Jada toys attention to detail is fairly evident in the RoboCop 1.0 action figure. The sculpture is based in the new movie design, which in turn is reminiscent of the original vintage design.

Abomination

I have to say that I had no knowledge of Abomination prior to the second Hulk movie, from a couple of years ago. I am aware that there were action figures based on the movie designs at the time, but as a whole, the associated toy line was a big pass for me.

Brute Splicer

Brute Splicer

The Brute Splicer is supposed to be some sort of brawler, and the character design certainly conveys that impression. The Brute has most of his mass distributed onto the upper torso, with impossibly massive arms and a decidedly rotund paunch. The legs are also quite thick, but next to the upper limbs they tend to look ridiculously thin.

Sad Gizmo

I wasn’t really expecting to find Gizmo. After all, he was featured in Series 1 of NECA’s Reel Toys line devoted to the Gremlins movies that was released a couple of years now, so I was fairly sure I would probably never find him in the wild.
