I’ve been after this figure almost as long as I’ve been after the 80′s Secret Wars version. This IMO is the ultimate Wolverine action figure! It’s that good. A brown suited Wolverine figure with this much articulation would have blown our minds as kids. If ever (and “ever” could mean very soon) I choose to sell off some of my collection, this one will be a definite keeper. In fact I’m thinking about setting up a website to start getting rid of some stuff online and hopefully make a couple extra bucks in the process , and when I do, this guy is staying put Everything from the facial expression down to the included sword, ala the 90′sToy Biz version. The scale is perfect, too. The Wolverine Origins line spawned some really cool versions of Wolverine, this being one of them. Enjoy the pics!
Colossus was another MU figure that I missed out on when it released a while back .This is the newly released figure,i believe,as it came sans the TOP SECRET
S.H.E.I.L.D. S.H.I.E.L.D. file card most of the initial MU figures came with back in the day. Another big time hole filled with the addition of this awesome looking figure .
Another cool aspect of this particular Colossus figure is the hinged head sculpt which allows colossus to look up and down!
Finally! I’ve needed a Daredevil in the collection for quite some time and this one did not disappoint. Daredevil is to the Marvel Universe what Low Light is to the Joe Universe as far as popularity, IMO. Such a simple, yet powerful costume design, with the iconic double D’s on the chest area(was there a better place to put it?) and the trademark horns on the head sculpt. I loved these particular waves of MU figures, with the little TOP SECRET files and character ID cards. I love any kind of written description or BIO cards included with my action figures. It is a lost gimmick as far as I’m concerned. Even the new Joe figures roll file card-less these days. I can’t front, though, I would have preferred the lighter shade of red but this figure blends both colors nicely and has great shadowing. Who doesn’t love Daredevil? Unless your name is “who” then you love DD just as much as I do
Let’s play a game.We’ll call it the “Other Characters Azrael Could Easily Be Mistaken For” game!
1.An updated version of Medieval Spawn (updated,medieval- oxymoron?)
2.ezio auditore da Firenze (Assassins Creed)
4.Generic Indiana Jones villain
5.The Mincer (Shredder’s evil-er twin)
6.Anno Domini-Cobra Commander’s religious consultant
Can you guys think of any?
Another nice looking figure from the DC multiverse line, this is the video game rendition of Deadshot-I think. Like I said, I’m not that familiar with the DC universe, but Deadshot is a character I do remember seeing within the limited amount of DC comics I had as a kid.While I like the classic look better, this one looks nice ,too. One thing that stands out to me about this figure are the folds and the overall puffiness of what looks to be a down jacket/vest.The gauntlets could have used a little bit of an accent but look cool for a 3 3/4 figure.I can’t stress enough the neatness of the paint on these Multiverse figures. No blotches or markings on spots other than where they should be.The difference in articulation is a welcomed change for a predominant Marvel Universe/G.I. Joe collector like myself, although I still prefer the latter. Nonetheless, a very cool line of figures!
Surprised by the wifey today with some DC Multiverse figures! She took a gamble and figured I would like the Azrael figure and then threw Batman and Deadshot into the mix My interest in action figures has been subsiding as of late, but I am lacking in decently articulated 3 3/4 DC figures, so this line should fill that void nicely.The movie version of Batman from the Multiverse line is one figure I will seriously be coveting and should be released sometime in April I believe. For now this version will do and isn’t as bad as I thought It would be. In fact ,he looks pretty friggin’ cool!The paint really pops on this figure and photographs well.My lone gripe would have to be the lack of any weapons or accessories. Nothing.Not even a projectile in the shape of a bat. Not even a bat in the shape of a projectile.Yup. Nada.That said,the sculpt and articulation points are this figures saving grace and I recommend picking this one up If you ever come across it in the wiz-ild.
“Look what I can do!”
I picked this figure up a looong time ago on clearance for like 3 bucks at a local Marshall’s. It’s not everyday that I set out to find a particular figure and actually come across it. Such was the case here as Luke Skywalker had been on my Star Wars most wanted list for quite some time. I didn’t expect to find one at Marshall’s but always hope to get lucky. This time I did. Down below is my entire ,modern collection of Star Wars figs.
