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, …

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 …

Daily Toy Review #83: Daken Dark Wolverine Unmasked Marvel Legends Series 2 Variant 2012 Action Figure (Hasbro)

Marvel Legends Series 2 Dark Wolverine Unmasked Variant Daken 2012 Action Figure

So apparently Wolverine had a son who’s a total bastard. I’ve probably read a couple dozen comics with Daken (the first Dark Wolverine) in them, and that’s really all I managed to glean about the character from them. For the sake of this review I read his Wiki article to see if Daken had any really redeeming characteristics, but that does not really seem to be the case. So whereas …

Daily Toy Review #82: Madame Masque Marvel Legends Series 2 Action Figure 2012

Marvel Legends Madame Masque 2012 Series 2 Action Figure

It’s really kinda pathetic when the aspect of a new action figure I’m most excited about is that they come with a golden Magnum revolver so I can pretend they’re using the “Golden Gun” from the classic N64 game “Goldeneye”. Madame Masque is a character that doesn’t hold a lot of mystique for me, as most of the best stories featuring her took place well before I was born. The …

Daily Toy Review #81: Marvel Legends Fantomex Series 2 Action Figure 2012

Marvel Legends Series 2 Fantomex Action Figure 2012

When I heard rumors about Grant Morrison’s plans for the X-Men way back in 2000, I thought he was crazy. Emma Frost was going to transform into a diamond and Beast was going to look like the Beast from “Beauty and the Beast”?! Surely this man was going to be the downfall of the X-Men franchise. Of course, that didn’t happen–Morrison turned in one of the most legendary runs in …

Daily Toy Review #80: Thunderball of The Wrecking Crew Marvel Legends Series 2 Variant 2012 Action Figure (Hasbro)

Marvel Legends Red Hulk Battles Thunderball of the Wrecking Crew Action Figures 2012

I don’t give out “A+” grades very often, and it’s even more uncommon for me to give one to a toy of a character that I don’t care about–at all. But that just highlights how outstanding the Marvel Legends Series 2 Piledriver of the Wrecking Crew action figure I reviewed earlier in the month was. I also reviewed Future Foundation Spider-Man, Drax the Destroyer, Bucky Captain America, and all of …

Daily Toy Review #70: Bucky Captain America Marvel Legends Series 2 2012 Action Figure (Hasbro)

Bucky Captain America Marvel Legends Series 2 2012 Hasbro

I’m really not a Captain America guy. I’ve read my fair share of Captain America comics over the years (and then some), but I’ve always had a hard time believing that a soldier with a shield and enhanced natural abilities can really order around the Norse God of Thunder on the battlefield. Steve Rogers just isn’t for me. Luckily, for a few years Steve Rogers was dead and we were …

Daily Toy Review #65: Piledriver of The Wrecking Crew Marvel Legends Series 2 Variant 2012 Action Figure (Hasbro)

Hulk vs. Piledriver Wrecking Crew Marvel Legends Series 2 Variant Action Figure 2012 Hasbro

It’s the mark of an amazing action figure when it’s so good you’re gleeful about spending $19+ on a character you seriously don’t give a crap about. For the last decade The Wrecking Crew have been the punching bags of the Marvel Universe, a group of construction-themed super-villains who have shown up to fight (and lose) against virtually every team in the Marvel Universe over the years (even in the …
