Marvel Universe (Family Dollar)-Wolverine

Last post about anything that has less than 10 points of articulation. I promise (fingers crossed behind my back).In fact my good buddy John over at the Clawful Punch put me up on a Joe sighting at  a Five Below variety store and since then I’ve picked up a couple that I’d like to get around to posting about. But today we have the Dollar Store exclusive (Dollar General, Family Dollar and maybe Big Lots-NOT DOLLAR TREE) Wolverine. I’m loving the head sculpt first and foremost. The vibrant Astonishing X-Men uni looks great and the height of the figure is pretty much on point. It’s an awesome figure considering.

Avengers Assemble-Captain America

If no one’s gonna post about these figures then I will. HA HA!I know a lot of collectors consider these figures to be crap, but I’d like to think of them more as being crap-ilicious or crap-tastic. 5 points of articulation and an accessory(save for the Hulk figure) is all your going to get with this line of Avengers figures. But value wise they’re totally worth it! While the articulation isn’t all there, the aesthetics certainly are. These figures are simple and won’t strike any dynamic poses when photographing them, but are great to display at a work station or next to your CPU. You can mess around with them and not have to worry about any joints snapping off or breaking. This is one set I’ll be trying to complete. Still need Iron Man, Hulk and Hawkeye who I believe will be the hardest of the three to find.Keeping with tradition, every Captain America figure that makes its way into my collection gets to take the Strikefire Transport for an honorary spin.Enjoy the pics!

Avengers Assemble – Thor

Continuing on with the Marvel invasion/5 point persuasion!We have yet another figure lacking in the articulation department, but overflowing with Asgardian appeal! These figures can be found pretty much anywhere they sell action figures and for a great price! I thought Thor here would look great next to my Spidey and soon to be showcased Wolverine and Hulk figures! All 5 pointers! I can see why people get turned off by these highly immobile superheroes, but that’s only because Marvel Universe has spoiled us rotten. If you’ve already snagged up Spider-Man, then this awesome Thor figure should be next on your list. I love the inclusion of Mjolnir as a separate accessory and not just a permanent mold attached to Thors right hand.The cape is made of a durable, yet soft plastic which is solidly attached. The paint apps are pretty much spot on and the deep blue used on the overall sculpt is downright menacing. The cool thing about these figures are the head sculpts, which look more than decent to say the least and can look side to side as well as up and down. Enjoy the pics!
