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.

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.

Sunday I picked up the Sonic Storm Iron Man and the grey-ish/light blue War Machine. That one with the huge cannon that you posted over the summer DISCHARGE.

Very nice.
I noticed at the Maxx today they had a glossy black repaint of Destroyer called Inferno Destroyer. While looking great I wasn't shopping for myself and I left him :-(

Long time, bros.

I know this isn't MArvel Universe actual, but today I saw some of the Iron Man 3 Assemblers, and they look pretty bad. You can switch arms and legs with different figures, so the idea is if you have enough of them you can make totally customizable armors. I just don't really see the point. They don't even have knees and elbows.

i seen these today.
I passed and picked up FOC Soundblaster instead.

I also seen the TRU MU light up base figures. The bases form a ring. The Black Widow looked real good, so did the Black Panther fig. Again, Soundblaster ;)

Hey all thought you might like to see my review of the Daredevil/Bullseye comic set. This is an awesome set and I feel the best comic pack to date. I can highly recommend this to Joe and Marvel fans alike. If you like this I have other Marvel reviews on my channel

Long time for me, too.
And yeah, I'm really disappointed with these. It seems like they've replaced the standard action figures with the Assemblers, which is total BS to me because it's more money for less articulation. I'm content with the universal 3.75" figure line, and with Iron Man 2 they came with nice little display stands. However, I experienced horrible distribution in my area and I only really saw the first wave...which has remnants sitting on the pegs at my local Target as we speak. I really hope Hasbro comes out with a regular series soon. I guess I get the customization...but they just look mismatched if you trade parts.

Same here. I was able to get a few IM2 figures that I wanted off BBTS.

The IM2 line has some terrific figures in it. I understand the custom armor gimmick of the IM3 line, but yeah, I imagine it's just going to look terribly mismatched in the end.

MU related, yesterday I found a Blaastar. He's got translucent hand and forearms, but his card picture shows them being painted.Not sure if this means there's a variant out there.

I would love to find some new figures.
Been a while since I've looked around.
Did go out last week. I'd seen the 3 pack
at TRU w/ War Machine,Hawkeye and Mockingbird.
That was it for new(er) stuff.
They still had only like 4 regular figures(allIronMan), with a sale
of 2 for $15 or somthin. What a bust.
They dont even stock em at the Walmart
nearest me. :(

Anyway, good find Dagon.
I had found a whole rack of the
Dr Strange variant, stupid me only
bought one!
Also heard there was an Electro with
the same variant as the Blaastar,
but I never found it.
Also, I never found the regular Vision, just
the clear one. But several times too, haha. Weird.

Variants are sometimes hard to find due to cases not fully being loaded out or employees keeping those figures for themselves. You're correct that there was a clearish variant of Electro way back when. I was able to hit TRU last Friday and I got the Black Suit Spiderman White suit Doom comic set and unfortunately that was all I could get from MU since TRU has really jacked the prices up. Anybody know if that Spiderman uses the new, good body mold? Also is the Doom the same figure from the Secret Wars set or the newer one that used the Ultron body? I saw the WCA, Inhumans, and 90's Xmen sets but couldn't justify buying them. The War Machine looked so good with the pear white finish. Almost forgot, how sweet is that new Captain America using the new body mold?

Man, I like that white Doom so much, but I can't justify TRU comic pack prices. Or comic pack prices in general. I think it was last summer I got the Thanos and Mr. Sinister comic packs (they were two seperate ones, not like those guys in the same pack) at Walmart for I think $14 and that was the only reason I'd bought them. At that time they were $5 cheaper than Target prices, and I can't even tell you what TRU charges.

So, I've never really been in to the MU variant hunting, how 'rare' are variants, and does that make it worth keeping Blaastar sealed, since I haven't had a chance to open him up yet.
