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.

Hogun

Hogun was part of the second wave of figures that never really got significantly distributed in Mexico City, so I didn’t hesitate to pick him up at a local bazaar.

Thor (Blob Series)

One of the characters produced for the second wave in the Hasbro–made Marvel Legends line was Thor. But not just Classic Thor, but the bearded, Lord of Asgard version inspired by artist Walt Simonson’s run in the Thor comic books.

Heimdall

Heimdall

Heimdall has a rather distinctive character design. The armor seems designed to be more ceremonial than utilitarian, and the overall appearance is not quite as Asgardian as one would expect.

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.

Thor (Marvel Legends)

Well, since I find myself on something of an Asgardian bent, today I’ll talk to you about one figure that came out not too long ago in the Marvel Legends line.

Thor (Battle Hammer)

With the second Thor movie a few weeks away from opening at theaters, I still have not found a single merchandise item at local stores. However, I was not entirely denied, as I did acquire and action figure from the previous movie line.

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.

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

Beta Ray Bill

Who dresses like Thor, has the powers of Thor, wields a magical hammer and has a skeletal horse face? Why, it is none other than today’s review subject, everybody’s favorite Korbinite, Beta Ray Bill.

Volstagg

Hasbro released Volstagg as part of the Thor movie line last year. He was part of a wave that apparently didn’t see a wide release anywhere, so I was fairly surprised to find him in a street vendor’s cardboard box in one of my trips to downtown in Mexico City.

Thor (Shock Strike)

Even though I like Thor as a character, I didn’t get any of the movie-style action figures made of him back when his solo movie came out last year. I did consider getting the casual version of him, but the priority of getting that version never really rose above other concerns. So, when the Avengers line finally was announced I planned on finally getting a Helmsworth Thor, only to be stopped cold in my tracks by the reports of limited articulation.

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.

Marvel Legends Thor, Hope, & Steve Rogers At Planned Banter

Sure Planned Banter is a great podcast. They are like younger brothers I never had, except into stuff that I like. But, Richard has been posting some really great action figure reviews on the site. If you are podcast subscriber, you might be missing this. I wanted to take the time to point out his […]

Sword Strike Thor

Okay, I’ve never been a big Thor fan. I don’t dislike him. I just never read much about him, unless he was in a comic with other heroes. However, much like the Iron Man film did, the new Thor movie has piqued my interest a bit. This time I’m taking a look at “Sword Strike” […]

Thor

Hasbro released Thor (#12) in 2010 as part of the second (H.A.M.M.E.R.) series of figures in the Marvel Universe line. For this series, Hasbro upped the ante by relying slightly less in generic body sculpts and offering a very good number of new, unique sculpts.
