Marvel Legends X-Men Dump

Marvel Legends seem to be coming out with increasing frequency as the last few years have progressed. Though I can't buy them all, I hardly have time to review what I do buy. Due to this ever-growing pile of unopened figures, I've opted to dump several figures into one post- more of an overview of all the figures than an in-depth look into each figure individually. They are also less trouble to ship if I want to sell any. While the new X-Men Retro Card Apocalypse was a recent acquisition, the other X-Men Retro Card figures are over two years old now, and some of the others were purchased aro ..read more

Marvel Legends X-Men Animated Series VHS Cyclops & Jean Grey

While I'm somewhat indifferent about the cel shading on these Marvel Legends Animated figures, I like the overall designs of these two figures, who were underrepresented in my collection. They were way overpriced at $27.99 on Hasbro Pulse, but I will say that the box art is really fun. Take a look at the figures on the turntable in my video: Hasbro's redesign of this Cylops is fantastic- the straps on his legs and shoulder harness are all built in to prevent sliding while posing, a problem the previous "Jim Lee" Cyclops had. Choosing between Jean's two head sculpts is difficult, though I ..read more

Super Joe Unlimited

I have zero recollection of/nostalgia for Hasbro's short-lived Super Joe Series from 1977, but the retro appeal of these updated Super Joe Unlimited figures was undeniable. Their toyetic aesthetic certainly appeals to a '70s/'80s kid who collects larger figures with soft goods outfits like Mego figures. After discovering White Elephant Toyz at the online Mego Museum, I compulsively purchased two! Check out the video: I received all the parts from White Elephant Toyz individually bagged, as they are purchased from menu at their site. I also purchased the Obsidian Comic Weapons accessory ..read more

Marvel Legends Lizard and Hammerhead

 I want to say I got both of these back in November, and am just getting around to opening them, but in fact, I have figures that have been stowed far longer. I've collected quite a stash of these Spider-Man Retro Card figures, and have opened only one ...? Lizard was a Walmart exclusive preorder, and Hammerhead a discounted Amazon purchase just south of eighteen bucks. Hammerhead is an outwardly unremarkable, plain clothed figure, but the red tie and HEAD brass knuckles are nice, if small touches, that make him special. He also comes with alternate hands to hold the included baseball ..read more

Turbo Wheels Dirt Bike Conversion

I saw Mike the Hunter customize these dollar store Turbo Wheels Dirt Bikes on YouTube last week, and set out to make some of my own. After disassembly and sticker removal, I spraypainted the body, adding embellishments with gold and silver paint pens on the shocks, engine block, wheels, brake pads, etc. The final touch on Mike's tutorial was an adhesive backed 3/4" jewel mounted to the headlight base, giving it a semi-realistic dimension that really put the proverbial cherry on the top. Genius! My colors were based on what was in the studio, but I could see making more of these in differ ..read more

Marvel Legends Toei/Tokusatsu Spider-Man

3w ago
I had no childhood nostalgia for this Toei/Tokusatsu version of Spider-Man, never having learned about the Japanese Spider-Man as an adult- ironically, '78-'79 would have been a high point for Spider-Man as a child, playing with my Mego Spider-Man and reading his comics then. The similarities between the Japanese and American Spider-Man pretty much ends at the suit, but the character, Takuya Yamashiro, appeared in the Amazing Spider-Man: Spider-Verse story, and will return in the forthcoming Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse this June. I liked the figure for the realism of the figure's p ..read more

Marvel Legends Model 70 Iron Man, U.S. Agent, Herald Thor

 I was interested in all three of these Marvel Legends from the Controller BAF Wave last year but held out long enough to see the Model 70 Iron Man and U.S. Agent get discounted on Amazon recently, then getting them free using Amazon Visa points earned. You can't play the long game on every Marvel Legends, but these had been available everywhere for months and waiting paid most of the bill on all three of these figures. I have more Iron Man figures than I need, yet Hasbro produced yet another I didn't know I needed. And with hinged repulsor hands. He has a Marvel NOW vibe yet hits all ..read more

Mego Justice League Shazam & Black Adam

I actually got these new Meg Justice League Shazam and Black Adam figures free back in September 2022, using my Amazon Chase Card points earned to preorder them in July. A far better deal than the overly expensive Topps Exclusives that were available for only a week online. All's well that ends well- check out the video: Above, Mego Justice League Shazam and Black Adam with the McFarlane Toys DC Multiverse Rebirth Shazam and Endless Winter Black Adam from my last post. The McFarlane Shazam and Black Adam are more modern in their design and sculpt, but stay true in spirit to the original ch ..read more

McFarlane Toys DC Multiverse Rebirth Shazam & Endless Winter Black Adam

I found this McFarlane Toys Gold Label Shazam at a local Walmart back in October, then hunting down the Endless Winter series Black Adam on eBay to pair him with. Their bodies are identical, the chest bolt/cape and heads the only difference aside from color. Both came with cards, Black Adam featuring photography of the toy, while Shazam's card has a character illustration. I thought finding this Gold Label Shazam would be hard, but I saw several at retail on more than one occasion. While top heavy from this large cape, he's a wonderful version of the character. The same lightning accessor ..read more

Marvel Legends Deluxe Ulik & Retro Card Hercules

 While I've had the retro-card Hercules since last February, I only saw this Deluxe Ulik very recently, already on sale from Walmart.com, marked down from $36.97 to $27.98. A great value for this large figure! I still have the initial, modern Hercules Hasbro produced right before this classic version, a better companion to Ulik in my opinion. What a fun pair they make! While Hercules has battled Ulik, putting my 80th Anniversary Thor into this post was, of course, mandatory. Ulik is a great complement to all those 80th Anniversary figures we got in 2019, many of the Retro-Card r ..read more
