  1. Quick review of the two new 2-packs hitting Targets now.


    This is the Spider-Man we've been waiting for! It is a full-on JL Cylops buck with ankle rockers, waist and mid-torso articulation, thigh and calf cuts, and a neck hinge. The wrists are not hinged, but the right hand is angled into a thwip motion, and there is wrist rotation. The head has large, sculpted-on eyes. I tried to capture it all in this quick pic. I'll take proper pictures over the weekend and compare with past Spidey issues.


    The bad news is that in a case of six, only 2 are this Spidey with Shocker. Spidey/Vulture are 4 to a box. DPCI is confirmed as 087-06-7988. $19.99 each.

    Vulture is solid, but typical of recent movie figures - no wrist articulation or waist swivel. But the rocker ankles with those claws are very nice. The wings are one molded piece that insert into the back via two pegs.

    Homecoming Spidey is appropriately undersized. There is no wrist articulation, but there is a neck hinge, rocker ankles, and a torso split.

    Shocker is typical of the newer 3.75 molds. He has a one piece torso and no wrist articulation or neck hinge. The lightning bolt symbol is molded on.

  2. Picked up the animated GOTG series Thanos yesterday at Target. I thought with a repaint he'd be a great MCU Thanos... but I think he's too tall. From what I can tell from set photos, Thanos will be closer in height to 8 feet not 10. Here's a size comparison with Black Panther and my custom Ultron mk. 3.

    How would that shoulder collar look on a "huge" MU figure?

     

    The Thanos head is not bad, but overall that is just a sad picture that reflects our desperation for product in the proper scale.

  3. Movie Dr. Strange 2-pack


    Henceforth known as the "Buttaface" movie Strange, here we have a finely executed movie body with a poor effort on the head. The eyes were applied too low, and the remainder of the head's paint apps are sub par.


    In terms of articulation, Strange has ball-joint hips, ball joint neck with a neck hinge (which is a improvement over Starlord/Yondu), dual-hinged knees, rocker ankles, and swivel-hinge elbows and shoulders. The is no wrist articulation, but there is a waist swivel (which is another improvement over Starlord/Yondu).

    Ugh.

    The cape has sculpted folds.

    The body looks fine sans cape, too. It's just that head...

    Astral Strange has the same articulation and sculpt, only translucent and with no cape. No cape!
