Marvel Secret Wars Comic Pack #12 -The Thing & Bulldozer 8/13-8/19

I found this comic pack marked down at a nearby Wal-Mart and could not pass it up.I really needed a Thing figure for my collection and the Bulldozer figure,while not a must have,is definitely a plus.

From what I’ve read around the internet this Thing figure isn’t the most popular but the only flaw IMO is his range of motion,or lack there of.He’s not the most poseable figure but he still looks bad a#$ when displayed!I also like the fact that he’s shorter than my Avengers Hulk figure.

I gotta admit,I don’t know much about Bulldozer other than the fact that he is part of the Wrecking Crew.This really makes me want to find the other three crew members -Piledriver,The Wrecker and Thunderball!I remember seeing these guys a lot as a kid as they would make the occasional appearance in random comics in my collection.

Comic books and action figures go hand in hand IMO.As a kid I would have gone nuts for these comic packs.Back then we were limited to reading a small three-framed strip on a card back or to a mini-comic at best.The comic included in this pack is Secret Wars #12 and while the story is dated,the various pin-up’s found at the end were a nice addition.More than anything, I dug the Marvel Universe action figure advertisements on the back of the cover!

PRICE CUT ALERT!PRICE CUT ALERT!

I just got back from a nearby Wal-Mart that had Marvel Legends figures and Secret Wars Comic Packs marked down to 11 bucks!I wasn’t surprised about the comic packs but I never thought I’d see  any Marvel Legends figures  getting the roll-back treatment.I know most of you don’t like to shop at Wal-Mart much but If you’re into the Marvel Legends stuff then you may want to check it out!They had a few Klaw’s,Bucky Cap ‘s  as well as a few others that i can’t remember right now.One guy was checking them out at the same time I was and snagged up two or three of the Marvel Legends figures.I snagged up a Secret Wars comic pack which I’ll be posting about soon.
