The First Order Snowtrooper seems to be made using the exact same digital files used for the 3.75-inch version, with some tweaks done to fit in the even more reduced articulation scheme

The Marvel super Hero Mashers line has to be one of the weirdest concepts Hasbro has put out there in quite a while. The idea of mixing and matching pieces from several of the more iconic Marvel superheroes to form a hybrid is one that at first sight may appeal mostly to the youngest of children.

Sandman (Marvel Infinite Series)

In a rather unusual fashion, Sandman was released with two different paint variants and apparently, in the same quantities so neither one was significantly more difficult to obtain.

Black Panther

With the third installment of the Captain America movies looming in the horizon, Hasbro has been rather sneaky and instead of revealing early too much about the movie designs, they opted to go for a more comic-inspired look for this Black Panther action figure.

Wasp (Marvel Universe Infinite Series)

I am not exactly sure how much is coincidence and how much is actual planning when I see Hasbro producing figures for second-tier characters way in advance of they becoming relevant due to a mention or an appearance in any of the Marvel movies.

Stormtrooper (Black Series, 1/18 scale)

  Even if you only bought one of each figure released in the Hasbro Star Wars lines, chances are you already have a pretty sizeable number of plain Stormtroopers in your collection.   And still, when Hasbro announced that they would add yet another of these troopers to the first few waves of the 1/18 […]

A good number of the 3.75-inch action figures we are getting from the first few waves in the current Star Wars Black Series are actually designs that were to be released originally for the Star Wars Vintage Collection by Hasbro.

41st Elite Clone Trooper

The 41st Elite Clone Trooper uses the same basic body mold updated for the Vintage Collection, paired with a Phase II helmet. So far, so good, as the details sculpted onto the armor looks sharp and the articulation is really excellent.

Groot

For me, one of the things that made this Groot figure so attractive is the fact that it can be used to serve a wide number of roles, either as a generic Ent, a Forest Elemental or simply as a really big Groot to go along my Marvel Universe figures.
