    Marvel Universe / Iron Man / Avengers / Hasbro 3.75'' Figure Thread

    I thought it might be nice to have an all-purpose thread for Marvel Universe / Iron Man 2 / etc. figures.

    Got Marvel Universe Wave 8 from Hasbro Toy Shop today. I have to say Hasbro really are hitting it out of the park for the most part. There are still some minor disappointments (Kitty and Havok really should have had molded belts) for the most part it's pretty amazing.

    I love Archangel. he's such a cool character and his wings are perfect.



    Colossus is great, although I do wish they'd start extending the outfit details all the way down. He does have a bit of a gap like Nightcrawler had. Still, maybe it's necessary for the range of motion at the joint. I actually really like Kitty and appreciate her sculpt and the face she doesn't have a generic superheroine face but something more true to the character.


    I like this Havok outfit and he looks pretty cool. Again, the only drawback is the belt. At least the energy funnel makes more sense for him than it does Iron Man. I wish the energy effects attached more like the IM2 figures though.

    The AIM soldiers are the first army builder figures I bought more than one of. They just look SO cool. The thing I love about MU is all these requested figures we've been getting. The weapons are cool as well.



    And then... Juggernaut. I had the ML of this and sold it a year or so back on Ebay. I actually think the MU is better in some ways! I love the bulk, the scuffed paint marks on his helmet and his articulation. An all-around great figure. Plus, he looks cool battling Hulkbuster Iron Man!

    Thanks for the compliments guys! I do have some other photos I've taken of previous figures. I'll post those below.

    As or a checklist, ComicFigs.net has the closest thing I know of. It's not really a checklist but you can see every release! They even have some variants that aren't widely available yet.

    Alexx- Though I like the MU figures, I agree the Iron Man 2 figures are something REALLY special.

    Cool, Jon. I love the MU line and the other 3 3/4" lines. I got my wave eight a couple of weeks ago. My only complaint from that line is that I wish they would have included his Death mask from Horsemen days. But other than that, the line was awesome. I love the Juggernaut figure!

    I only took some of my favorites from this thread! The Dynamo is on the first page, and he's one of my favorites from that line! I just didn't get as many good shots of him at the time.

    I've had to get MU Wave 7, 8 and part of 6 all at Hasbro Toy Shop. Same with Wave 2 of Iron Man 2 figures! Hopefully these will start showing up in stronger force soon.

    The Death Archangel looks very cool. I hope he doesn't end up like the transparent Vision and Blonde Black Widow as a variant we never actually see in stores! A lot of them never seem to have made it to retail yet.

    Marvel Universe (and other 3.3/4 Marvel figures)

    Hey gang
    As most of you know, I live in the frozen north, in cold, distant Sweden. And over here, we don't really get many action figures in stores. Sure, they do the big movie lines, and Star Wars is perennially present, but for the smaller stuff we're out of luck.

    Now, I am a huge fan of the 3.75 inch format for action figures. The Marvel universe of comics is another. So I've recently started peeking at the Marvel Universe toyline, naturally. We don't get these in stores at all, so I haven't ever seen any in person, only watched the odd review on the internet. However, I'm curious and tempted. I love the wide assortment of characters and the different costumes for each. And they look reasonably affordable.

    The only iterations I saw of these locally are the Spider-Man and Wolverine movie figures (last year) and those had very limited character range. Lots and lots of Spider-Man and Wolverine variants.

    Does anyone in the community collect these and can tell me their opinion? Worth it or not? What figures are good and bad so far? If I get into them I'll have to get them off eBay, which kind of sucks, but...

    Anyway, discussion and any help welcome.

    Mrs. SOB started to collect the new line of GI Joe and loves them. I decided to get back into collecting figures (It's been over 2 years since I was collecting classic MOTU), and I jumped into Marvel Universe. I'd been coveting these forever, always oogling them in the store. So a couple of weeks ago, I bought some when she bought some Joes.

    I got Spider-man, Dr. Doom, Absorbing Man, Captain America, an AIM Agent, Thor and the Enchantress. I'm totally into them. The big guys (Hulks, etc) are impossible to find in the stores, so I ordered a Juggernaut online. And he's easilly my favorite character. He's such a GREAT figure. I want a Hulk and Red Hulk, but I'm worried now, because they aren't nearly as articulated as Juggy, so I hope I'll like them as much.

    One downfall, however is that I'm 2 years behind, with, like... 8 waves a year! There are so many I don't have and alot seem hard to get so I've found myself at the mercy of eBay and the sellers. Some I'd love to have (and I don't collect and keep them on card and pack them away to get valuable, I take them out and play with them) are about $30!

    High on my Christmas List is the 19" Galactus w/ Silver Surfer. He looks very pimp. I also want to get a hold of Sabertooth and Deadpool (comic versions) from the Wolverine Origin line. But those are more that are REALLY expensive. The Blob/Sabertooth 2-pack was in the clearance aisle at the Wal-mart I work at for about a year and a half for $9. Now it's gone and it's one of those $30 - $40 packs online. The Deadpool w/ a giant gun pack is still there for $9, and I plan on getting that soon, so I'll have DP in my set.

    Another non-MU toy (but fits in) that I'd like to add is the Hulk-buster Iron Man from the Iron Man 2 line.

    It sucks, I got into these 4 days after I posted my secret santa wishlist, or else my Wishlist would just say MARVEL UNIVERSE!!

    You guys are the opposite of my wife and I. She is more into comic book action figures and I am more into GI*JOE. But she collects the old Toy Biz (pre-Marvel Legends) figures. They're not the most detailed figures but what she likes about that old line is that there are so many characters that got released, especially from X-Men.

    I have thought about getting into this line but I just can't work it into the budget. If I start collecting at all I will just be cherry picking. I really liked the Wolverine that came with Human Torch in that Secret Wars 2-Pack. That figure almost got me into it.

    Marvel Universe Wasp Question

    Does anyone have the little Wasp figure that came with the Dr. Doom/Absorbing Man 2-pack? If so, how do you display her? It would be nice if she came with some sort of base. Usually I kinda set her straddling Cap's shield. Looking for good suggestions for when I finally get a display case for my Marvel Universe figures.

    I do, but I don't have these figures on display. If I were going to, I'd prbably glue her to the shoulder of another finger.

    Marvel universe 3.75

    Ok, I may be late to the party, but these are quickly becoming my favorite toys in years... Does anyone know if there's a forum set up somewhere they THOSE fans hang out/trade/sell? Doesn't look like the 'other discussion' forum here gets much traffic

    There's a podcast called Marvelicious Toys (insightful, but annoying). They have forums I believe. Feel free to peruse my BST link in the sig!

    I think my Stark Racing Armor Iron Man has two left legs. And somebody else has warped fingers. It's a good thing I'm mostly only buying them for all the extras they come with because it seems like there's a lot of issues with these.

    Mmmm... not really the thread I was looking for, but I guess it'll do in a pinch.

    I was actually wondering if there is some sort of 'he-man.org' or 'Mattycollector.com' sites that is designed primarily for Marvel universe 3.75?

    This is a fun place to hang out for he-man news... but come SDCC it seems we only get the pictures and news for MOTUC... Was wondering if anyone knew where the pictures for THESE tend to end up
