Marvel Universe-Colossus

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!

1991 Marvel ToyBiz X-Men -Colossus 11/5-11/11

Another day,another ToyBiz action figure!Forgive my use of sports card terminology here,but I will refer to this as a  Colossus  rookie figure for it is the first toy rendition of everybodys favorite metallic mutant .Colossus has always been one of my favorite comic book characters because of  how strong and nearly indestructible he was. The hands on this figure really bugged me when I first saw these at a local Kay Bee but this gripe was quickly offset due to the fact that this was a friggin’ Colossus action figure!I was lucky enough to find this one cheap and in awesome condition with his dumb-bell accessory!I’m having a great time with these figures and the sheer ruggedness of the plastic and vibrant paint apps really make the ol’ toy shelf pop!

                                                                                                              More Fun With ToyBiz! 

These guys arrived today and I’m pretty excited about all three of them!I’ll be doing separate posts on each of them so stay tuned for that!

                                                                                                             Panthro

This is another awesome figure that made it’s way into the collection thanks to Jason Vorhees!We pulled off a trade not so long ago and I was pretty psyked to find out that Panthro was going to be part of it!I really needed an 80’s Thundercat figure for my 80’s collection and Panthro will fit in nicely!Panthro was my favorite of the bunch and I couldn’t be happier to own this iconic action figure!Big shout out to Jason!

Last but not least,i’d like to wish everyone who had the misfortune of  having to deal with the events that took place this past weekend well.I know there are a few bloggers who frequent my site that live on the east coast ,myself included, and I just hope they’re all o.k.I’m a bit up north so we didn’t get the brunt of  it but still had major power outages(over 7,000 customers) and our fair share of downed trees.So heres to a speedy recovery to any and all involved and like Russel Simmons would say after every episode of Def Comedy Jam “Good night and God Bless!”
