DC Multiverse- Armored Batman

This was the Batman figure I originally wanted from the Multiverse line,at least until the movie version releases.This is basically a repaint of the first ,more subtle grey release,but a damn good one.The utility belt has also changed a bit this time around and the arms sport nicely sculpted gauntlets.Head sculpt is the same and with the exception of the added gauntlets,so is the rest of the sculpt.They even added a super ,cool looking serial number right smack dab in the lower, center part of the capes interior for all to see when Batman is in his battle stance!YAY  🙂 I can’t tell you how much I hate that sh%&  😦 Besides that,the figure is super solid…If you can manage to find one with more discreet  stampings.Enjoy the pickies!

DC Multiverse-Deadshot

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!

Green Lantern-Solar Saw (Hal Jordan)

With a little bit of birthday cash left over,i decided to snag up a GL figure to go along with my MOS Superman and DKR Batman.I could have gone and played it safe with a normally outfitted GL,but opted to go with this awesome repaint!As far as i know this version is neither comic or movie  accurate,but no worries here.In my universe,this is “bad ass” Green Lantern!The paint mixed with translucent plastic and dabs of glitter make this truly unique figure stand out nicely.A more menacing Hal Jordan.I also dig the glossy green mask on this particular head sculpt as opposed to the usual flat green that was used on most of the other movie figures.Enjoy the pics!

Superman MOS-Zod

Zod is another awesome little piece of plastic from the  3 3/4  inch line of  Superman MOS figures.There is something special about these figures.While they are not super articulated,they are durable,sharply painted figures that aesthetically hit the mark.Zod sports the cloth cape,which i just love on action figures, and comes with a super sized weapon that can detach to become  a kick ass sword and blaster.Now that i’ve managed to subdue the stranglehold NECAS voodoo had over me,i can start to focus on 3 3/4 figs again.I’m hoping they release a single carded version of Jor-El and the rest of  Zods henchmen!

Dark Knight Rises-Batman

I can’t believe this is my first Batman figure in ..well…30 years.I was around 6 years old living in Puerto Rico when i got my first Batman and Robin figures.It was Christmas time  and i can still remember my aunt messing with my head telling me that Santa forgot to give her my present lol.She got me good because because i can rememeber feeling extremely sad about it.Until she reached inside of  a big,black plastic bag  and pulled out this amazing set that included the Batmobile with the Batman and Robin figures.It was insane!I’ve searched everywhere on the internet for that set and can’t find it.The one detail that i can vivdly remember were the capes on both Batman and Robin.They were made out of a very hard,stiff plastic.I was 6 so the year was 1982-83.If anyone has any idea which set this was,please gimme some info 😉 I now officially own my second Batman figure and i really like it.One of my biggest beefs with contemporary Batman figures is their cartoonish appearance.Kenner and ToyBiz produced more realistic looking versions of Batman in the 80’s and 90’s,but then the animated series came out.I liked the animated series and always thought it had great writing/stories,but was never a big fan of  the broad shouldered look they gave Batman.The same went for the figures.It seems like from that point on every action figure of a  DC character had to have those wonky,broad shoulders.I never dug it.This Batman figure suffers from lack of articulation,yes,but makes up for it with the clean and very detailed sculpt imo.There are certain figures that give you a  sense of excitement when photographing them,such was the case with DKR Batman.The overall appearance of the figure is so bad ass that it doesn’t really matter what pose you have him in.He will still look bad ass.

Birthday cash,nothing to spend it on!

I must say that i did have a great B-Day overall,spending it with the fam at an amazing little out of the way park over the weekend.I also received a little bit of  birthday cash and decided to pick up a couple figures that had been on my radar,and then check out the local hobby shop as well as Toys R Us to see what they had.Now,i’m not the type of collector that goes out of the way to find what i’m looking for.Usually if Wal Mart doesn’t have something then i might check out the local Target or nearby pharmacies but that’s about it.I rarely go to TRU or hobby shops for that matter.Today i decided to go against the grain and traverse crappy little “under construction” roads to see what TRU had to offer seeing as how the Comic shop had pretty much nothing in the way of action figures…although i was impressed at how they were able to make their floors so sticky.Anyways,TRU disappointed with a bunch of wave 1 Retaliation Joes,hoards of 6 inch figures and overpriced playsets.A big W.A.G.(Waste Of Gas)(Waste-A-Gas) My bad 😦  Luckily my trusty Wal-Mart still had 600 rows of  Superman  MOS figures left as well as the 3 3/4  Drak Knight  figures that just refuse to leave the party.And some may argue that Wal-Mart also has sticky floors and i would say to them “True,but they also have the best deal on single rolls of  GV toilet paper.”
