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
Another convention has come & gone and that means it’s time for a little Armchair Coverage here at IAT! I was away this weekend, but I came home & dived in to the news, taking some notes along the way. Some lines had big news while others seemingly forgot
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.
After Vault snagged Loki coming home from a convention five hours away, and After I snagged a Hulk on a business trip three hours away, all that was left was little Hawkeye. I never thought I’d want a Hawkeye so bad, but between the movie and the hunt, things got crazy.
Only one Wal-Mart within an hour carried 6″ Avengers figures. It was about half-an-hour away and I’d be lying if I said I didn’t waste a bit of gas hitting up that Walmart repeatedly. Sadly, only two of my Avengers figures even came from there. Toy hunting is such a blast…
Ever since the DC Minimates from DC Direct died on the vine, I’ve been a lot more selective with my Minimates purchases. But Diamond Select Toys has its ways of pulling me back in, and there’s no better way than by making a figure from one of my favorite video
The final part of our Armchair Coverage is always the most work: updating checklists! There are still some tweaks and touch-ups to do here and there, but each of the main checklists are updated with the latest info from San Diego Comic-Con. Here’s the skinny on what’s changed and what’s needed.
Day 4 of Guest Review Week brings us to a site that knows how to have fun with action figures. ZedsJoeSite.com features some great reviews, but the real gem of Zed’s site is the ongoing toy webcomic, Scale Wars. Today, Zed’s taking a look at the new ultra-poseable Amazing Spider-Man.
I’ve wanted to do some Avengers reviews, but there’s been one big problem. Finding them. I’ve been to Walmarts hours from here and have very little to show for it. I did manage to snag a leftover Thor on one run, but his photo shoot didn’t exactly go as planned. Snap.
After a few weeks of hunting, I’d given up on finding the six inch movie Avengers figures around my area, and I was mostly right. Luckily we were out of town for a comic book convention, and I happened across a few of the figures.
As I mentioned in my last Marvel Universe 2pk Review, the space characters and the 90s X-Men are my two weak spots when it comes to resisting Marvel Universe figures. That means, as sure I picked up Thanos & Adam Warlock, I just had to buy Gambit and Mr. Sinister too.
Last night I remembered that I run a toy review website. Between a business trip to Kansas City and a quick jaunt to Texas for the eclipse (and a bunch of work in-between), IAT’s been light on my updates the last two weeks. Let’s fix that with a Marvel Universe review.
