Avengers 6″ Thor Studio Series Movie Action Figure Review 2012 Hasbro

Thor Avengers Figure 6" Movie Studio Series 2012 Hasbro

Coming off the high of the Avengers Studio Series Hulk (who’s one of my favorite figures of the year) and Studio Series Hawkeye (who has some of the most intricate costume sculpting I’ve seen in a while), I come to the Avengers 6″ Studio Series Thor action figure. Thor is another figure shortpacked at one-per-case, but this time it was probably a good decision by Hasbro. The God of Thunder …

Avengers 6″ Hawkeye Studio Series Movie Action Figure Review Hasbro

Hawkeye Avengers Studio Series Action Figure 6" Hasbro 2012

Following up on my review of the out-of-this-world-awesome Avengers 6″ Studio Series Hulk movie action figure, I want to jump straight to the other all-new movie Avenger’s character in this assortment: Hawkeye. Of all the characters in the Avengers movie, I thought Hawkeye was the only one who really didn’t get a fair shake. Ol’ Clint Barton got to look like a total badass in several action sequences, but his …

Avengers 6″ Hulk Studio Series Movie Action Figure Review 2012 Hasbro

Avengers Hulk 6" Movie Figure Smashes Studio Series Hasbro 2012

I went out searching for some new Clone Wars figures this weekend to no avail (anyone got an extra Scuba Ahsoka they wanna part with?), but as a consolation prize I stumbled across a fresh placement of the Wal-Mart exclusive Avengers 6″ Studio Series of action figures. I wasn’t looking for them and hadn’t planned to drop the cash picking them up, but with them right in front of me, …

TOY REVIEW: Avengers Loki & Nick Fury Movie Minimates (Diamond Select)

Avengers Movie Minimates Loki and Nick Fury Action Figures 2012

Last week I reviewed the Minimates Avengers Hawkeye and Black Widow figures from Art Asylum/Diamond Select Toys, and today I’ll be covering the other Toys R Us Exclusive two-pack of Loki and Nick Fury. The set doesn’t quite reach the same heights of greatness as the Avengers Hawkeye and Black Widow Minimates figures due to issues with back-heaviness, having a few less accessories, and some restricted articulation. But make no …

TOY REVIEW: Avengers Hawkeye & Black Widow Figures Movie Minimates (Diamond Select)

Avengers Black Widow and Hawkeye Figures Battle Movie Marvel Minimates 2012 Diamond Select Toys

Hasbro pretty much dropped the ball with Avengers toys. After disastrous sales for the Wolverine: Origins, Captain America, and Thor toy lines when their respective movies launched, Hasbro decided to take a more cautious approach with movie Avengers toys. So instead of a full-blow action figure line of three dozen figures like Iron Man 2 had, Avengers has a handful of figures–consisting primarily of variants of Thor, Iron Man, and …

Daily Toy Review #84: Arnim Zola Build-A-Figure Marvel Legends Series 2 2012

Marvel Legends Arnim Zola Build-A-Figure Series 2 2012 Action Figure

Today I’ll be reviewing Arnim Zola, the Build-A-Figure of Marvel Legends Series 2. I previously reviewed every individual figure from Marvel Legends Series 2, and you can find all those reviews in the Toy Reviews Index. This series’ Build-A-Figure is quite possibly the most bizarre figure ever released in any iteration of Marvel Legends. If you were going to gauge freaky appearances on a scale of 1 to 10, Arnim …

The Avengers Movie Cosmic Spear Loki Action Figure Review 2012 (Hasbro)

Cardback The Avengers Movie Cosmic Spear Loki Action Figure 2012 Hasbro

Chris Hemsworth is a dreamy hottie. At least, that’s what my wife says women think of the actor who plays Thor–I’m not privy to such things. So it’s no wonder that even in the Marvel Movies universe, Loki is still bitter and jealous of his brother. I thought Hemsworth was a pretty decent Thor back when I reviewed the Thor movie last year–but personally, I was more intrigued by Tom …

Daily Toy Review #75: Iron Man The Avengers Movie Mini-Muggs Action Figure (Hasbro)

Avengers Iron Man Movie Mini Muggs Action Figure 2012 Hasbro

One toy line that I’ve always thought should have succeeded was Hasbro’s Mighty Muggs. The line combined the popular designer urban vinyl genre with beloved characters from Marvel Comics, Star Wars, Transformers, and more. And, I mean, with a tagline like “Made of 100% Recycled Awesome”, how could you lose? Even so, the Mighty Muggs line died a pretty horrible death with lots of shown products unceremoniously cancelled from every …

Daily Toy Review #52: Marvel Universe Quicksilver and Wonder Man Comic Pack Action Figures Two-Pack

Marvel Universe West Coast Avengers Action Figures Quicksilver Wonder Man Moon Knight Iron Man

My Marvel Universe action figure reviews can be broken into two distinct subsets: the figures that I buy online at a premium and have reviewed days after their first release, and the the figures that I post reviews for after I find them at retail 3 months later. This Quicksilver and Wonder Man Comic Two-Pack is the latter, as it was released back in November and I’ve only finally found …

Daily Toy Review #46: Stealth Extremis Iron Man Marvel Legends Series 1 2012 Variant Action Figure(Hasbro)

Stealth Iron Man Marvel Legends 2012 Action Figure

It went by fast, but today’s review is the final entry in my series of Marvel Legends Series 1 Reviews. If you missed any of the previous reviews like Terrax, Hope Summers, and so forth, you can find them all in the Toy Reviews Index. The first series of the revival of Marvel Legends is following what’s a bit of a tradition now: the inclusion of a Stealth Iron Man. …
