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.

Usually they restock the racks at some point no matter what toy line it is, and considering this one seems to be all released at once I should find him. Iron Man 2 was another story entirely. There were at least several waves of those figures and I only ever saw the first one because the stores ordered so damn much of it. One I really wish I hadn't passed up was the 6 inch Mark V suit Walmart-exclusive figure. Here's to hoping he gets re-released with Iron Man 3.

I remember that being a huge pain in the but during the IRon MAn 2 line as well. I bought Whiplash and two of the drones the first time I saw them, and I only recently found them again at a local Target when the Avengers figures were first coming out. It was like they had a box in the back room still and figured now was a good time to finally put them out. I guess there was a real late wave that had this concept War MAchine in white and red paint that was some kind of 'heavy munitions' version, along with this blue Iron Man armor that said STARK RACING on it and a few other repaints; I grabbed them when I saw them and then never saw them again. Hell, it took me forever to find an Iron Monger and he was in like the first or second wave.

You know, I finally found Whiplash at...Kohl's...out of all places, along with the drones (but I never got the drones #-o ). I looked for the Stark Racing one but never found it. Most of what I ever saw were Comic Series figures which were kind of boring. It's funny though...I saw plenty of Iron Monger where I live for quite a while. I think I might have still seen some this year or late last year. But Iron Man (along with Transformers) is one series that I let way too many good things pass by. I'm still mad I never got the Mark I and the Spec-Ops (aka War Machine) concept armor from the first movie.

I never picked up the Racing one, and I only saw it once. To this day I've only seen like three Whiplashes, and they were at a K Mart. You'd think that the films' villain would have gotten better distribution.

You'd think that, but even so, action figure lines are usually chock full of the hero(es) and not many villains to begin with. There are always more Autobots than Decepticons, 50 Spider-Men and 4 villains, 100 Iron Man suits and several villains, countless Supermen and one Lex Luthor. I know kids associate with the hero more, but everyone needs a villain for their hero to bring to justice, right? It just makes sense to us, but apparently not to the toy companies.

I managed to get back out to TJMaxx and I think they were monitoring this thread.
The Iron Man toys were neatly organized on pegs. The display looked really nice with what I assume was a new case opened up. I was able to get both the War Machine figures
045.JPG

The Power Charge Armor's downfall is the lack of shoulder articulation.
049.JPG
He does feature the light up chest gimmick though, and a pretty snazzy paint job 8)

I really like the Artillery Armor War Machine. Big beefy weapons and good articulation for battle poses.
077.JPG


And while movie Destro's missile launcher seems too heavy for Cable,
War Machine has no problem lugging that thing around
075.JPG

And since the second weapon that he comes with uses the ball peg to attach at the top this makes some serious firepower.
There are gaps on both sides of the large cannon, probably for a bullet belt, that the handle for the launcher can insert into. It works better on the one side than the other.

Yeah, War Machine is really hard to pose. I like those two you found. The black one just looks like the first release but with different accessories.

Are you talking about this one?:
http://thetoymuseum.blogspot.com/2010/12/iron-man-2-movie-series-war-machine-12.html
I unfortunately only bought the comic series and not the other, although I always considered it :BANG_HEAD: . The Power Charge Armor does resemble the movie series figure, although I think the earlier movie series has full shoulder rotation, the concept armor does not(the other concept armor WM has full rotation though).

I want to actually thank you man, while doing some research and ending up at the above link, I had the idea to use the ball peg on the concept armor and attach the Artillery Armors cannon.

I just wish there was a way to switch the chest light on without pushing on the head.

Ah...I didn't see he had a chest light. And yes, the first movie series War Machine does have full shoulder rotation, but the shoulder pads kind of inhibit its use.

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.

I think all the IM2 War Machines have shoulder pad issues. I've got the movie and comic suits, as well as the larger one (what is he, 6"?) and the pads get in the way on all of them. Short of molding them to the shoulder joint and not making them hinged at the shoulder is probably the only way to fix this issue, but it won't look as nice then.

I don't seem to have an issue with the shoulder pads. I think the Artillery Armor War Machine has great articulation, even with the shoulder pads. Being on a hinge they easily lift out of the way :D

I have sadly been drawn back to TJMaxx to buy more super heroes.
My latest excursion netted me Iron Man 2 Concept Series War Machine: Munitions Armor and Destroyer from the Thor line(my only from that toy line).
053.JPG

I have yet to explore War Machine, but I love me some Destroyer.

I've wanted him for a while and decided to go for it. If anything to help
move the stock to pave the way for more great finds down the road.
Destroyer seems like a giant among the other figures.
He towers above Wolverine:Origins Weapon X
Weapon X vs Destroyer.JPG

His light up gimmick is so much nicer being located on the abdomen rather that having to push down the head.
058.JPG

A very nice figure(he too needs better shoulder joints though).

I also picked up a Marvel Universe Psylocke from Wal-mart. She was being clearanced off for: $5.00 :shock:

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.

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. :-(



They are the regular and Death variant.

I would love to get a hold of the X-Force version.

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.
Man is BRB cool.

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.
