Guardian

Guardian

Guardian’s costume is a deceptively simple one, consisting basically in a skin-tight attire with a cowl, with a color scheme patterned after the Canadian flag. The only original piece of sculpting is the head, which is well detailed, although a little bit on the generic side of things.

Absorbing Man

Absorbing Man uses the exact same mold used for a comic 2-Pack with Dr. Doom, with a couple different paintjobs for his individual release as part of Marvel Universe Series 3.

Astonishing Beast

  It’s been quite a while since I picked up an X-Men comic book, so when images of the more recent Beast action figure started appearing online, I was rather puzzled by his appearance.   A lot of the character’s personality got lost in translation in the comic books I used to read in the […]

X-23

X-23 was sort of a big deal back when she was released as part of Marvel Universe Series 3, not only because she was a clone of the ever-popular Wolverine, but also because she was developed using an entirely new female body mold.

Wrecker

One thing I noticed since I started playing the Facebook game Avengers Alliance, is a renewal of my interest for certain characters previously released in the Marvel Universe line by Hasbro that I had initially passed on.

Hulk

Once upon a time, way back in the 80’s, I remember standing in line at a supermarket and perusing one of those magazines stores like to keep handy at the checkout. In there was an interview with Lou Ferrigno. Nothing particularly noteworthy, except there was a shot of the actor holding what I though was the most amazing Hulk Action Figure I had ever seen …

Marvel’s Jubilee

Released as the 23th figure in Hasbro’s Marvel Universe Series 4, Marvel’s Jubilee is one of those rare comic book characters that actually show some aging, from her early teens to her now young adulthood.

Professor X

Released as the 22th figure in Hasbro’s Marvel Universe Series 4, Professor X is a very interesting addition to the line for a couple of reasons.

Thor (Ages of Thunder)

This version of Thor comes from a series of comics set before his exile to Earth and the stories portray him in a rather unflattering light, as something of a bully with a quick temper and a penchant for extreme violence.

Astonishing Wolverine

Other than Iron Man and Spiderman, the only other Marvel character that has had a comparable number of action figures made of, in recent years, has to be Wolverine. The figure I’m reviewing this evening is from the Marvel Universe Series 3, wave 16 and is none other than Astonishing Wolverine.

Cable

Cable is one of those Marvel characters I could not wait to see made as part of the Marvel Universe line. Was it worth the wait? Well, yes and no.

Cyclops (Blue Team Uniform)

Cyclops isn’t necessarily one of my favorite Marvel characters in terms of his personality, but the way he is depicted in media always seem s to translate well into action figure form. There have been a couple of action figures made of him in Hasbro’s Marvel Universe line, but the version released as part of the second wave of figures in Series 3 is one I had been hoping to see for a while now.

Apocalypse

Apocalypse

Apocalypse is one of those X-Men villains that I never really knew what their deal was at the time I was reading X-Titles semi-regularly. The whole “Survival of the Fittest” angle seemed a bit too ambitious to me, but I reckon it gave plenty of justification for almost anything the writers could come up with.

Skaar (Son of Hulk)

After the events of the World War Hulk comics series, there were a few loose ends to the storyline left o be resolved back in the regular continuity of the titles involved. One of such loose end revolves around the Hulk’s son, Skaar.

Wolverine (X-Men Uniform)

Wolverine action figures are not exactly scarce nor hard to find, thanks to the deluge of figures left-over from the X-Men Origin: Wolverine line, but the one version from Marvel Universe that really caught my eye was the revision of the figure sporting the Jim Lee designed Blue Team uniform.

Iron Man (Modular Armor)

At this point, there are quite a lot of Iron Man figures still clinging to the pegs at stores, either from the Iron Man 2 movie line, or as part of the regular Marvel Universe assortments. However, for the Modular Armor version, Hasbro upped the ante just enough to merit yet another purchase.

Ghost Rider (Marvel Universe)

Ghost Rider (Marvel Universe)

Ghost Rider has always had that seventies comic book feel to me. The lone motorcycle riding antihero who finds himself entangled with elements of the supernatural. To be a popular book in the seventies it seemed like you had to have some sort of other worldly weirdness going on. While not as well known as […]

One thing you’ll notice shortly after starting reading comics, is how much alike the storylines are when compared to soap operas. You get betrayals, long lost relatives, amnesia and people that just won’t stay

Captain Britain

For some reason, I have always had a certain fascination with flag-costumed superheroes, and Marvel Comics is the only big publisher I know of that can blatantly rip-off the color scheme of any flag and turn it into a striking costume.
