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.

Today I’ll be taking a look to the Hawkeye action figure released by Hasbro as part of the Avengers Movie Series exclusive to WalMart in both the USA and México.

Iron Man Mk.VII (Movie Series)

One thing you can’t help but notice is that a couple of the 6-inch scale figures in The Avengers Movie Series by Hasbro are actually molds that had been used for a previous movie line.

Captain America (Movie Series)

One character I remember rather fondly from my Mego days is Captain America. When the Captain America: The First Avenger movie came out, I was rather excited for the opportunity to get an updated version of his costume, but for whatever reason I was unable to really sink my teeth into that line.

Loki (Movie Series)

I don’t have a complicated algorithm to select a second figure after I getting the one I want most, other than simply pick whatever character seems to be the less abundant on the pegs on a second visit, and that one was today’s review subject, none other than Loki.

Classic Captain America

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.

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.

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.

Ultron

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.

Nick Fury (Pop! Vinyl Bobble Head)

As you may know, I’m bald. I’m also a bit angry. So when I saw the Nick Fury Pop! Vinyl, I couldn’t pass him up. For a fairly small figure, he captures Fury’s attitude pretty well. The two tiny fists of fury are balled up making him look like he’s itching for a fight. All […]

One figure I never got to see back when the first wave of Avengers action figures started to show up in stores, was this version of Marvel’s Hawkeye.

Super Shield Captain America

Super Shield Captain America

Super Shield Captain America is intended to be from the Ultimates continuity, as attested by the slightly more down-to earth attire. The overall level of detail is excellent, with good body proportions and the upper torso scale texture, along with the seams and straps added to the rest of the costume.

Cosmic Spear Loki

Loki is one of those Marvel villains I never cared much for. That is, until the Thor movie came along and director Kenneth Brannagh added quite some depth to the character played by Tom Hiddlestone

5 Marvel Movie Characters I Want Figures Of (But Won’t Happen)

As a long time Star Wars figure collector, I’ve gotten use to the fact if I wait long enough I’ll see a character from that universe in figure form. However, the Marvel Movie universe is another story. While heavy on the main characters, these lines have been rather small in scope and depth. That said […]

Well, the Chitauri were the alien invaders that Iron Man and his buddies fought in the movie The Avengers. Since this was an alien race developed for the movie, their design was kept in secret to the last minute

Nick Fury

One of the things that I think really brings the comic book feel to the newest Marvel films is the sense of shared universe. The best example is Nick Fury, played by Samuel L Jackson. He is one of the common threads through these films that helps unite them. Appearance: I don’t know what they […]

Grapple Blast Black Widow

One of the characters I had been expecting for quite some time for Hasbro to make an action figure of was the one played by Scarlet Johansson in both the Iron Man 2 and The Avengers movies. I’m talking about Natalia Romanova, a.k.a Black Widow.

Marvel’s Hawkeye

I wasn’t really expecting to see more of Hasbro’s Avengers line locally. I mean, the things seem to sell at a steady, albeit slow pace, but in my experience the stores in my city rarely order anything after the first wave of movie-related figures up until Christmas. With that in mind, it was very surprising to find Marvel’s Hawkeye hanging there on a peg the last time I went grocery shopping.
