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.

Ultimate Goblin

Well, after getting all of the figures in the Spider-Man Marvel Legends Infinite Series, I ended up with more than enough pieces to build the Build-A-Figure, which is none other than the Ultimate’s version of the Green Goblin.

Toxin

Toxin is another of those characters I knew almost nothing about prior to buying the figure. In fact, just by the look of him, I had assumed he was yet another Spider-Man foe, but as it turns out, he is actually one of the good guys despite his rather monstrous visage.

Hydra Soldier (Marvel Legends Infinite Series)

Although Hydra, the criminal organization, is featured prominently in the second Captain America movie, truth is we don’t get to see them attired in an identifiably Hydra uniform.

The figure I am reviewing today comes from the Marvel Legends Infinite Series assortment dedicated to promote the second Amazing Spider-Man movie, although this particular version of the wall-climber has nothing to do with the movie itself.

Marvel Now! Captain America

The figure is a completely new sculpture, and even though this uniform does not appear in the actual movie, the sculptor at Hasbro still wanted to go for a more plausible look by incorporating a lot of details and textures into the mix.

And The Winner Is….

Well. It’s all over. You have voted and the winner is…Superman. I’m not really surprised, but I really thought Batman was going to win this one. It was close, for the longest time it was deadlocked at 50/50. Just a testament to the fans of both heroes. In retrospect, I’m glad to see Supes on […]

It amazes me how much tougher this is getting. Round three saw one of the bigger Marvel Heroes eliminated by another Marvel Hero when Rouge squeaked by to take out Wolverine. Death of Wolverine is out right now isn’t it? Green Lantern managed to take down Silver Surfer in the cosmic battle. All of this has […]

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.

Marvel Vs. DC Hero Bracket – Round 3 Voting Open!

This just keeps getting harder. For starter, Batman continues to be a powerhouse. Aquaman received no votes against the Dark Knight and was sunk. Also, Thor pound Lobo. And Wonder Woman won all of the votes against Elektra. The one that surprised me was Nightcrawler defeating Punisher. It was a bit even than Nightcrawler pulled […]

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.
