Marvel Legends Thor/Odin Series Review

Baaaah! I miss writing for Geek Out! and man, it's nice to be back!

So, it's been a nice start for this year, release wise but financially overwhelming. Three Marvel Legends Infinite Series releases within 3 months and I'll be honest with you, that is something you don't experience regularly. For this wave, we got a good set of figures lined up and another great set of figure to add to your Spider-Man related displays and Rogues gallery.

Characters

  • Ultimate Spider-Girl
  • Daredevil
  • Spider-Man (Pizza Spidey, hoorah!)
  • Spider-Man 2099 (What the shock?)
  • Anti-Venom (well, you know, ehhh, it looks okay.)
  • Spider-Girl (not bad but I'm still happy about it!)

Build-A-Figure:

  • New Hobgoblin

To be honest with you, this is a great wave, really. We got a good set of Spider-Man figures and a Hasbro definitive version of Spider-Man. We all know that McF/Campbell version of Spider-Man by ToyBiz (and re-released by Hasbro) is still one of the best but this one has it's own style or something.

So, I'll leave you with my reviews of all the figures from this wave and hopefully, it helps you decided if it's a go or nah. It's a good set, trust me.

Have a great week ahead of you guys and stay tuned for my Thanos wave review!
 

Marvel Legends Avengers Series 1 Review

Starting the year with a blast! Got my hands on the latest Marvel Legends figures by Hasbro and man, I love this wave. Before I forget, I want to give a very big shout out to Basti Golez and Kramer Toy Warden for securing me a set

Marvel Legends, as some of you may have noticed, is on a roll and we got like 22 figures coming up, 9 of which are already released -- and I'm here to share to you guys the review!

Now, before I proceed, here are the figures included in this wave:

Characters

  • Sentry (Finally!)
  • Hawkeye (Oh, this one, too!)
  • Iron Fist (Came out really good)
  • Marvel NOW! Captain Marvel (Yes, another Carol Danvers and in her Marvel NOW! Uniform)
  • Scarlet Witch (A moment of silence for ToyBiz' Scarlet Witch)
  • Marvel NOW! Thor (Too big for the box and yes, largest in this wave!)
  • Machine Man (Oh, did I mention that this one's my fave of this wave?)

Build-A-Figures

  • Odin
  • Future King Thor

To build both BAFs, all you need to double up are: Iron Fist, Thor and Hawkeye which has the left leg, right leg and the body, respectively. Yes, you heard it right, you can come up with 2 Characters for this BAF!

So, now that you guys have an idea of the figures from this wave, here you go with the reviews of each figure. Don't forget to subscribe to my Youtube Channel for more. Enjoy and start hauling! 

Figma Avengers Action Figures

Hey there, guys! Here we go with another Marvel action figure review but today, it's not a Marvel Legends or Select figure -- today, I'll share to you the big three of the Avengers: Iron Man, Thor and Captain America by Figma. Basically, what Figma made were inspired by the characters' appearance during the Avengers movie.

Now, the never-ending argument and comparison to Marvel Legends is back and yes, I made a quick size chart for you guys!

Sadly, I wasn't that much of a fan of the Thor figure. That one has its own good stuff going on for it but there are just some things that kinda throws it off the plane.

Anyway, the Iron Man Mark 7 figure is just amazing and what I have is just the regular version. If you're able to get a good price for the Full-Spec version, get it! For the 6" line, there are only 2 notable Iron Man Mark 7 figures -- Revoltech's and Figma's. So far, Figma wins this one, without a doubt.

Lastly, the Captain America figure is also a good catch. It has its own flaws but still a keeper -- though if you're not a fan of the Anime-ish feel of your favorite Marvel characters, it's not.

For more details regarding these Figma Avengers action figure, peep out the reviews below!

Rave and Rant: Marvel Legends Infinite Series Odin/King Thor Wave

Remember when I first reviewed the whole Return of Marvel Legends Series 1? That feeling where everyone's a good catch (well, sort of)? This wave delivers the same feeling -- oh, wait, BETTER than that.

We'll be getting:

Maidens of Might

  • Carol Danvers/Captain Marvel
  • Scarlet Witch (Oh, yes -- FINALLY!)

Avenging Allies

  • Sentry
  • Machine Man

Others

  • Marvel's Hawkeye
  • Marvel's Iron Fist
  • Marvel NOW Thor

Alright, if Hasbro can just stick to this kind of wave every time with every theme that they'll come up with, that would be great because I'm pretty sure they can deliver more if done right. Not being an all-knowing guy here but from the looks of the past few waves, I can tell that they've been grinding and really trying to bounce back. 

Anyway, here's the Rave and Rant Episode for this wave announcement:

Customized Action Figure Showcase: Valkyrie by Mikoswabe Customs

Gaaah! I miss posting here at GeekOut! Just got busy and all but hey, I'm back with another Customized Action Figure Showcase. Today, I'll be featuring another piece I got lately -- Valkyrie by Mikoswabe Customs.

I know some of you will be asking: Why bother get one if we already have one from the Marvel Legends 2 pack?

Well, it doesn't resemble the Secret Avenger one -- therefore, I got this from Miko. Another thing that made me prefer this over the official piece is that this one's poseable, bulkier and a bit more detailed. Anyway, Valkyrie was part of the Secret Avengers line up when the title started and his likeness there was depicted in a bigger way. Taller than most of the team and fiercer.
