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.

Iron Man Mk.VII (Fusion Armor)

Well, after getting the Shield Launcher Captain America from the Avengers line and seeing it was not as bad as I feared, I convinced myself to go ahead and buy another figure, this time the Iron Man Mk.VII armor from the Movie Series sub-line.

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.

Hulk (Gamma Smash)

The one figure that instantly repelled me from the Avengers line was Hulk, before I went to see the movie. Afterwards, I started to have a change of heart because, after all, the Hulk rocks. By the time I went back to the store, still undecided if I wanted the 4-inch scale version or the larger 8-inch version, there were no more Hulks whatsoever.

Captain America (Shield Launcher)

  Well, when the Avengers figure line started to show up at stores, I admit I was one of those bemoaning the diminished articulation Hasbro gave to these figures.  However, after being exposed to the movie in theaters a couple of times, I convinced myself that I really wanted a figure from this line and […]

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” […]

1975 Comic Book Ads

We recently started watching Smallville. This led Mrs.Nerd to ask the question, “Who’s Green Lantern?” I gave her a brief synopsis of what I could remember and tried to describe his Super Friends outfit for her to no success. In order to show her, I decided to go to my comic archives. I have a long […]
