I’d like to start this post off by wishing every toy collecting dad as well as non-collecting ones,a very Happy Fathers Day!A Happy Fathers Day also goes out to the unsung heroic uncles out there that go out of their way to spoil their nieces and nephews as well as provide that much needed additional support they may need throughout their childhood.I mean,who else is gonna put them up on the action figure scoop ;)Today we have a much needed addition to the collection and one that helps me bolster my movie based Avengers team.All i need now is Hawkeye and Black Widow.I might have to snag up a more movie appropriate Iron Man as well,but this cool version sent over to me a while back by my buddy Buzz over at Action Figure Adventures,should be more than a suitable place holder i think. As far as the Thor figure goes,i like it.Don’t love it,but i like it.I would have liked for him to have a cape… but i won’t complain,even though i just did.The paint on this figure really stands out and the fact that he comes with the standard Mjolnir hammer is a plus.He also has an articulated neck,allowing him to look up and down,which i thought was pretty cool.Not a bad figure overall.I recommend 😉
I’m finally able to post about this awesome guide to everything Avengers!Flipping through the pages,i realized that i’m so out of the loop it isn’t even funny.While the major players are ever present,characters like Hulkling,Machine Man and a slew of other heroes and villains were all new to me.In retrospect,this book is just what the doctor ordered.I’ve got lots of catching up to do.Sorry about the blurriness of some of the photos.I tried to make them all as legible as possible.
These two super cool items were given to me by my sister as a birthday gift and i’m super thankful to her for it!She’s always looking out for her little bro and i don’t know what i would do without her!Thank you soooo much!The
Spidey Venom shirt features a camouflage emblem which is a nice touch.The book features a who’s who of Marvel characters that are or have been affiliated with the Avengers in the past.There are over 200 full color photos and write ups on not just the heroes,but villains as well!
This was a figure that i’ve wanted to add to the collection for a while now.Much like Hobby over at http://monstercafesaltillo.blogspot.com/ ,i’m not very fond of films that go and change everything that was cool about a character from the comics ,almost reinventing and fixing something about them that was never broken to begin with.Such was the case with Kingpin in the Daredevil film released years back.It happens,and in most cases it doesn’t work…..until you give the role to someone like Samuel Jackson.I love Sam Jackson.Heck Samuel Jackson would have been a better Duke than Channing Tatum IMO.And in the case of Nick Fury,i like the old school look as well as the Samuel Jackson version of him.I’m not sure when the Nick Fury metamorphosis took place,but in the end i like what they’ve done with him.I love the figure,too,although i wish they would have placed those pesky serial numbers somewhere less visible than on the insides of his boots.Other than that,he’s pretty solid.
First Iron Man now Nick Fury?Duke’s definitely up to something 😉
