On Monday, I got to review a long-awaited DC Classics figure: Elasti-Girl. Today is a review of a figure I’ve waited even longer for: a Marvel Legends U.S. Agent. I can’t believe it took two companies, hundreds of figures, and ten years to get this guy. This is easy repaint
Since I didn’t buy the battle-damaged Iron Man, this will be my last Avengers review for the foreseeable future. It feels wrong. No Black Widow. No unmasked Cap. No Maria Hill. No Coulson. I could go on; this line shouldn’t be over. Anyway, let’s wrap things up, hopefully for now.
You know what the plan was for 2012? Spend less money at retail. Limit the impulse purchases. Try to budget in a Hot Toys figure or two. You know what blew that to hell? Marvel Legends. One, cause they’re awesome. Two, because they released two waves on top of one another!
With Marvel Legends returning, a new Cap figure was as inevitable as the Thor & Iron Man that we’ve already reviewed. I was pretty happy when I found out Hasbro had elected to do a recent look for Steve, when he wasn’t Captain America, but rather Steve Rogers, Director of S.H.I.E.L.D..
If you’ve read IAT for awhile, you know I love alternate costumes. Symbiote Spidey. Electric Supes. Black Batsuit. War Machine. Hooked Aquaman. I could go on… There’s just something I find neat about the tried & true looks being experimented with, but what I really like is when they get figures.
This review was originally intended to wrap up our Flags & Spandex Week, but then Preview Night had to go and be all amazing, so we decided to hold off for a few days and start our Armchair Coverage early. The International Patriots 3pk includes Cap, Captain Britain, and Red Guardian.
So let’s take a break from the Mattycollector hullabaloo with another Captain America: The First Avenger review! It’s day three of our Flags & Spandex week and we’re going to make a jump over to the comic book side line with a look at Captain Britain in his New Excalibur duds.
Before we get to the review, I want to apologize for how late this article is today. I had planned to post it some time this morning, but those intentions went awry. Better late than never though, so here’s Tuesday’s Captain America: The First Avenger review: The deluxe Fortress Assault Mission
In celebration of the Captain America movie opening up this Friday, we’re dedicating this week to the Captian America: The First Avenger toy line. Monday through Thursday we’ll have a new review on some of the more interesting figures in this series. The first figure I’ll be looking at this week
A good checklist is almost always a work in progress and while we were away the last couple weeks we missed a fair share of updates. As IAT returns to its normal schedule, I need to spend some time getting our various checklists in order. I’ve started with MOTU Classics,
Got that morning after feeling? I know I do. I not only spent all weekend being abused by toy companies trying to take their money, I foolishly vowed to have all the IAT Checklists updated before the weekend was out (they are!) Once I was done, I remembered there was still that little matter of doing some Armchair Coverage…
