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-Red Skull (Cosmic Strike)

Sorry about the lack o posts. The holidays took a lot out my family and I, and it seems now that we’ll be braving the elements as well with this country wide arctic storm that’s been wreaking havoc across much of the U.S.-Did I just sound like a weatherman? Yes I did. And the five day future-cast looks something like this-A little bit of Red Skull on Monday and Tuesday with a light dusting of Star Wars for much of  Wednesday and Thursday. Friday seems to be shaping up to be a dandy with  a 99.9% chance of a passing meteor shower. Nothing too serious,though. Enjoy the pics!

Avengers Assemble-Gamma Fist Hulk

Whether or not you like the new  Avengers Assemble Gamma Fist Hulk may come down to a matter of perspective and how you look at him. Literally . From the top down he’s as menacing and awesome looking as any other 3 3/4 Hulk figure out there, head sculpt wise .The strangeness sets in the minute you look at that same head sculpt from a different angle . Head on and from underneath, Hulk’s expression changes into a more laid back , relaxed demeanor . It’s  odd , but in no way does it take away from this action figure’s overall presence and coolness. I’ve seen  video reviewers criticize everything from the small head sculpt on down to the flatness of his fee t! Yes , you heard right-the flatness of his feet ! LOL . Everybody is entitled to their own opinion I guess , although, I’d go as far  to say that  the feet are actually a strong point for this figure as they feature the  very much adored rocker joints . The body sculpt lacks the shading most MU figures sport , but makes up for it in detail . The muscles on this figure have muscles. Something the movie version really lacked.I’m also digging the brighter green.Also,this is a big figure as far as the  3 3/4  scale goes and pretty much dwarves most of the recent Hulk figures that have been released. A word of warning . If you do decide to pick this figure up,go easy on the leg joints at first.My right leg seemed to be stuck in place while the left moved back and forth , no problem . After messing around with it a little, I realized that I could get the right leg to move back and forth by moving the left one with it  at the same time . After that, the pose-abilty is pretty much endless.Articulation is another upside to this figure . Their haven’t been any really impressive Hulks on store pegs  since the latest MU  release,but hopefully this figure will change that and get the praise that, IMO, it fully deserves.Enjoy the pics!
