Marvel Universe Figures?

Do you collect other toys besides Transformers? Maybe you've got a Masters of the Universe collection you'd like to show off, or maybe you like Thundercats, Voltron, G.I.Joe, Power Rangers, Star Wars, Wrestling, or any of the various comic book toy lines. Please keep the discussions here to non-Transformers toy lines.

I wish I could find that Destroyer. He looks cool. But, I've got that War Machine, and he's neat even though his gigantic launchers make standing difficult.

You can never have weapons that are too big. Never. Go big or go home. :P

Too true

It's odd to hear about balance issues. Mine seem to stand quite well, and if they don't I use a stand from the previous MU figures, they can really help when a particular pose is wanted.

You've got to love Hasbro's weapon reasoning. I loved MechTech for the reason mentioned above.

You'd think it would be easy, but Hasbro has proven so many times that making action figures based on movie characters that are 100% perfect is entirely impossible. I have a version of every deluxe class movie Bumblebee mold/retool ever made, as well as the Human Alliance mold. Each one of them has something accurate that the other one doesn't.


I was kind of kidding around. At the end of the day, yes even for these super cool figures that bring us limitless hours of fun(until it breaks or gets lost) it's simply a toy. I just like to have fun with them. :D

I was looking through my boxes of Marvel Universe and was taking some pics the other night. I wish I had room to display them.

I enjoy these toys for the art on their packaging as much as the toys.



Forgot all about the Moon Knight. I kick myself for not buying a second one to open. He's so pure and white and mysterious. I almost opened last night.

Looks like 2 or 3 Arch Angels...still kicking myself for not picking him up the one time i seen him. :-(

Bros, last evening, in the wild, I scored a Beta Ray Bill! I think they had his whole wave, with that odd looking First Class Beast and Kraven and another Hulk. I was tempted to grab Kraven the hunter, but the $12 price hike has hit that store, and so I passed.

Nice score. Newest stuff I've found lately is the TRU comic 2-packs
(The Juggernaut\Colossus set just looks odd to me for some reason).
Probably would have picked a few up but my hands were full of MP Prime and Legends
class figs.

Haven't seen that one. SAw the Cap and MAgneto and the two Spiderman two packs, the TRU exclusive ones. I'm tempted by the Spidey packs for the Doom and Rhino figures, but as I've posted before in here, $20 for the figures strikes me as bunk. Given recent price hikes it's actually a deal, but still, it seems too rich for my wallet.

I got the inferno armor Iron Man concept figure at T J Maxx this evening. The translucent one you showed pictures of before, DISCHARGE. It's pretty nice! Was looking for that artillery War Machine and stuff, but this looked to be the only Iron Man figure they had.

Yeah, TJ Maxx went through them quickly near me, and I only bought a select few.
I think the Solar Storm version is a translucent blue, I want to still pick that one up myself.
Did see a Hammer Drone last time I was there, but I didn't buy it. I will if I see it again, he looked real neat.

Kang has come home at a ridiculous $14 from the comic store, but all the retail stores are doing a poor job of stocking any of the new MU.
Anyway, Yeah! Kang!! :KREMZEEK:

Now I need Immortus.

They also had the new Punisher, if it wasn't so much I would have snagged him too. He looks 10x better than the earlier versions.

O.K.m so I didn't buy the Punisher last week, so I got him today.
They had two, the other one had less favorable paint apps
and was looking to his right,so I pick this one.
Two pistols, a knife and an SMG. I'm sure I could muster
up some more weaponry somehow ;)
I don't know if I should open or not.
If anyone would like to see more later let me know and I'll open.

I was just at Target and they had a whole load of Marvel figures. They must have found an old case in the back because I left with a Juggernaut, finally. The others were the newer wave with BRB and Beast.
I'm just amazed that I found a Juggernaut.

One of Walmarts' black Friday deals was an eight pack of Iron Man/Thor/Captain America figures for $25, and I bought one. It was one of those things where it's eight more or less random figures but these were a lot of figs I'd never seen in the wild before. I got a pack that contained the comic series Iron Monger and Whiplash, the Dark Reign War Machine (with the cyborg face), a legit Ultimates Iron Man, the Destroyer from Thor, Ultimate Cap and a desert action Cap, and Volstagg.

So happy I found these, as the Iron Monger I'd wanted since it showed up on the back of a card over a year ago, and the Whiplash I didn't even know existed.

I know they aren't the "Marvel Universe" series, but I finally got Ultra-Poseable Spider-Man and Reptile Blast Lizard from The Amazing Spider-Man movie series. Of course, I loved the movie so I had to find the characters in action figure form.

I like how heavy he looks. And shiney. I'll have to dig out my other two drones to compare, but the HAMMER drone looks like he's made of metal, but obviously isn't. The whips and saws weapons are dumb, but the figure looks real impressive and I don't really recall the army or green (forgot which military branch he was supposed to be....also had whips and saws) or the air drone having the same visual effect. Although, I do remember the air drone having the same shiny quality.

I remember seeing the Hammer drone and thinking he was made of metal too. he is pretty impressive. Went back to get him one day and he was G-O-N-E, gone.
