SDCC 2011 came and went over the weekend and Marvel gave us a peak of upcoming figures coming out in the year ahead. Like the 3 Avengers in the pic above. I’m not too keen on their uniforms though. :) continue reading..

Thor was a pretty good movie. The costumes of both Thor and Odin were awesome. Trust Hot Toys to come out with a great representation of Odin. continue reading..

The Thor movie is looking good, but I’m not really a fan of the toys. I’m only really interested in one of two. More pics after the jump and a whole lot here and here.

Hot Toys has released preview pics of their new 12′ Inch Thor from the upcoming movie. While it’s tempting, the lack of much accessories and the high possibility that they will release a much better figure and sculpt after the movie is released is holding me back. continue reading..

Christmas came early in Tokyo. The latest pics from the Hot Toys 10th Anniversary Exhibition in Tokyo look great with some new reveals! First was the new licenses, of which I’m excited about Captain America, Batman (Michael Keaton’s Bats) and Indiana Jones.

But the main highlight was seeing some pics of upcoming 12′ inch figures coming out. There’s Raiders of the Lost Ark Indiana Jones, Iron Man Mark V, Iron Monger prototype, Resident Evil Alice and Thor! Thor is looking really good! I’ll let the pics speak for themselves. You can also see more here. continue reading..

New pics are out from NYCC for Marvel’s 3.75′ figures! There’s the new Marvel Universe X-Men boxset and the Apocalypse figure. And first looks at the Captain America movie figures as well as those from Thor. Captain America does look a bit on the Chunky side compared to the MU figures. Doesn’t seem to look as good.

There’s also Mandarin from Iron Man series, and a new Venom from the Spiderman series. Venom looks good! continue reading..

I’ve been MIA for awhile due to my travels this month. I came back over the weekend to find this beauty of a figure to complete my Marvel Universe SDCC 2010 Exclusives collection. Nice.

Managed to pick up the Marvel Universe SDCC 2010 exclusives from various sources. The Captain America and Movie Spiderman figures have the new bodies and much better articulation. Ball jointed wrists, better joints for the neck and the ankle as well! I especially like Captain America’s removable helmet and Spiderman’s costume from the movies. Great figures!


What really took my breath away was the Galactus figure! The box and carded packaging is huge! It looks amazing! I haven’t opened him up yet, and I’m contemplating if I should, but from the looks of it he has some pretty good articulation as well.


To give a bit of perspective, you can see how small Captain America is compared to Galactus. He’s a huge figure! Nice…

So now the only figure missing from my SDCC MU Exclusives collection is Thor, I should be getting that next week! Woot! Great figures!
