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
I’m not sure what to think about Hasbro’s ML reboot. I like the majority of the figures so far, but it seems like an afterthought in the toy aisle. Only one nearby Walmart carries it. Target & TRU still have their pegs, but they’re only getting
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
Before I start this review, I should point out that I… uh,never got around to seeing Amazing Spider-Man. July was kind of a blur, the whole summer has been really, and it ended up falling through the cracks. Heck, I didn’t even know 6” toys were planned when I found them
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…
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.
One is a former love interest of Tony Stark, heir to a powerful east coast crime organization, and hides her scarred face behind a golden mask. The other was the leader of another powerful criminal operation, fights Captain America, and likes the color green. One odd couple for a review, huh?
I’m back! Vacation was awesome, but not being in front of my computer all week was a challenge! I jumped right back in, reworking the site redesign, building the SMC checklist, creating a new Vault sub-site, and then I realized… Monday’s review!? Oops. How about Marvel Legends Future Foundation Spider-Man today?
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!
