    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.


    CLICK FOR LARGER

    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.

    Pictures:
    Neo-Classic Iron Man


    Hulk VS Hulkbuster Iron Man (CLick for larger)


    Spider-man and His Amazing Friends Set


    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.

    Hmmm...I didn't see that Arkangel variant offered on the BBTS website. I just buy these directly from there or the Hasbro Toystore website. I don't bother with retail.

    'Bout time! Crimson Dynamo is the only comic book villain to get to the Iron Man 3 3/4" line. He needs his props, comrade! Da, tovarisch?

    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.

    Found the new stuff, finally!





    LOVE Hulkbuster, but I just wish he wasn't smaller than the movie Monger:



    Otherwise, another favorite is the Guardsman:





    Kinda funny that this guy is armored, 'cause it looks like a painted muscleman! They even invented some new muscles for this back:



    Beyond all that though, he's well articulated and a blast to play with!

    I love the MU figures so much! They're just too expensive for me, or I'd totally collect them. Is the Deadpool with the giant gun from the Wolverine Movie line the only 3.75 Deadpool that's come out? While I'd love to buy the full set of these, Deadpool's one I might buy if I could only have one.

    There are two Deadpools: The one you mentioned, and a single packed one in the same Wolverine line. I like the single packed one much more, though they both have merrits. My big problemwith the giant gun version is that his head doesn't look up at all, and he's regulated to just looking down at his feet. I cut some plastic off the inside of his neck hole, so it's gotten a little better. Overall, though, I think the single pack one just poses better.

    Here, I'll show ya: the only difference is that the single packed one has the top part of his harness cut off, because I didn't like his chunky sword sheaths.

















    So, as Deadpool stated, both figures come with crap, pretty much. The Single Pack version can at least hold his big gun, but the pistol and swords fall out of his hands. The sai can be held...but it's gigantic, for some reason. The other one doesn't look as good to me, and the swords were warped as heck. He could at least hold them, though. Either way, both are improved greatly with G.I. Joe weapons.

    I've almost given up on these....the last 'new' figure I found was Extremis Iron Man and that was 2 months ago. I can't find these anywhere in KY. Every store I go to has nothing but old figures or nothing at all in stock...I love hunting for figures but consistently finding nothing is killing these for me.

    She's been my favorite X-Woman for years. Gotta love Kitty!

    For anyone who likes this type of video, here's my wal-mart toy run for marvel figures. Go to two Wal-marts, show the stock, then at the end reveal everything I picked up when I get home. Pretty big haul!
