MU Wolverine Origins-Wolverine (brown suit)

I’ve been after this figure almost as long as I’ve been after the 80’s Secret Wars version. This IMO is the ultimate Wolverine action figure! It’s that good. A brown suited Wolverine figure with this much articulation would have blown our minds as kids. If ever (and “ever” could mean very soon) I choose to sell off some of my collection, this one will be a definite keeper. In fact I’m thinking about setting up a website  to start getting rid of some stuff online and hopefully make a couple extra bucks in the process , and when I do, this guy is staying put 🙂 Everything from the facial expression down to the included sword, ala the  90’sToy Biz  version. The scale is perfect, too. The Wolverine Origins line  spawned some really cool  versions of Wolverine, this being one of them. Enjoy the pics!

3.Sinister 2.Sabretooth

Down to my favorite 3 of the bunch!Sinister ,who I remember vividly from past X-Men and X-Force comics as well as from appearances in the X-Men animated series,is number 3 on the list.Sadly the light up feature does not work,but still and all another nice addition to the collection.At #2 we have Sabretooth!Who doesn’t love Sabretooth ?This particular ToyBiz rendition of Wolverines famed arch nemesis has the neat battle damage gimmick ,ala the old school He-Man/Skeletor figures.

7.Junkpile 6.Grizzly

Here we have an X-Men from the future (Junkpile) and an X-Force Baddie (Grizzly).Not very familiar with either of these guys but that’s the joy of collecting.Finding characters you know nothing about lights a fire under your behind and motivates you to do some diggin’!Junkpile is part of X-Men 2099.A mutant with the ability to create himself entirely out of metal,Junkpile is one awesome looking action figure!Press down on his head and Junkpile explodes into a …well… into a junk pile.Grizzly used to be part of Cables “The Wild Pack” and then later ..according to WIKI…became a serial killer.So I guess that makes him a baddie.Or a meanie at best.Another awesome piece o plastic ,though, and addition to my ToyBiz collection!

9.Stryfe 8.Gideon

Stryfe is up there,high on the list  because I already have one.Only this one came complete and in a bit better shape!Gideon comes in at number 8 cuz I really don’t know much about him.As a kid,X-Force was pretty much the last series of comics I  collected(thanks to those eerily drawn hands) before ultimately calling it quits,and while I remember Gideon vaguely,he was never a favorite.The figure still looks great though and i’ll have to check out some of those old X-Men animated cartoons to see if Gideon ever made an appearance in them.

11 new Marvel ToyBiz Figs!- 11.Apocalypse & 10.Kang

 

As I mentioned recently,just the other day I won an Ebay auction and really made out scoring 11 ToyBiz figures for the low price of 5 bucks w/ Free Shipping !I’ll be posting them in a certain order though.I’ll start with my least favorite and then work my way up to number 1.Out of the 11 ,two I already have,the Apocalypse figure being one of them.Hence the low ranking. He’s still an awesome figure though.Kang,on the other hand,was a mystery to me until I did a little digging.Turns out this particular version of him is from the Avengers -United They Stand series.Not very fond of this look but Kang is due for an update.So there you have it.Figures number 11 and 10 on the list.Stay tuned for 9,8,7,6,5,4,3,2 and 1 😉
