Archangel (Marvel Legends)

Well, after completing the Build-A-Figure from the Hit Monkey wave in Hasbro’s 2013 Marvel Legends assortment, I would not need to get any of the other figures which don’t have any extra piece packaged with them, Right?

Michelangelo

It may be hard to believe but only recently I have been acquainted with the early TMNT comics by Eastman & Laird. Those comics are much grittier and darker in tone than the version of the Turtles we got to experience in the 90’s, although even back then, Michelangelo already was the light-hearted one.

Wolverine (Marvel Legends)

Lucky me, the Wolverine released in this series is the one attired in the X-Force uniform, which is fundamentally his Astonishing costume with the yellow bits replaced by gray, or in this case, a slightly blue-ish silver color.

After reviewing Donatello, it really didn’t take too much for me to go back and grab another Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle from the shelf. This time I decided to pickup the elder brother, Leonardo.

Donatello

I do remember the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles craze from the late 80’s and early 90’s. In fact, even though I was certainly not in the target age bracket for the toys, I still ended up buying some action figures of them.

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 […]

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 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.

Retro Review – Beast (Marvel Super Hero Showdown)

While I applaud Hasbro for taking the time to make action figures based on rather obscure characters in the Marvel Universe line, sometimes it feels like they are neglecting some fairly obvious choices, like say, the complete original X-Men roster.
