Marvel Select Venom Sightings?

Again, another surprising (Really? Still surprised?) Marvel Select figure popped up at 168 Mall. Since I'm just a few blocks away from the mall, I dropped by and checked it out. Being curious, I bought one for myself a Mint on Card Marvel Select Venom. A few months ago, I posted a video about bootleg figures of popular action figures. I believe, my first Bootleg/Overrun video was about the pricey BAF Red Hulk. The figure has obvious  flaws and some problems all over but there are some that are tolerable and go for a discounted price! Then a few months later, the BAF Iron Monger appeared and the Bootleg Marvel Select Iron Man (overkilled with different designs) followed.

Just a few days ago, Marvel Select Venom and Rhino popped up. I didn't get Rhino since I don't see a point in having 2 Rhinos. Venom is a good addition, though, since I want one for my "Venom Overload" display. Each was sold at Php1000.00 but I'm not sure if they already jacked it up.

Thor: The Dark World Heroclix Starter Set Review

Wizkids has been prolific lately. Just 9 months into the Heroclix hobby, the company has released sets for a total of 11 different franchises spanning Marvel, DC, and other video game/movie/TV universes. And the gameplay is refined so the game is always fresh. Like any other hobby, it’s painful on the wallet. And if you’re the type that likes to collect everything, then just be ready to spend a lot of your hard-earned cash. I just stick to the Marvel sets with the occasional exception for movies or franchises I really like.

Whether you’re looking to get into the game or are a seasoned vet, Starter Sets are still a better purchase instead of the leaner Fast Forces packages just because of all the extra stuff you get.

Hasbro Marvel Legends Puck Series Review

I really don't want to start this off with a negative line but I have to be honest, it's one of the weakest waves that Hasbro came up with, but it has figures that seem okay. This wave was said to include Rogue (yes, we were that close to getting a new Rogue!) but during the recently held SDCC, Rogue may be included into another series. Phoenix 5 Cyclops was also cancelled. Fine with me though; looks like they won't be making the other 4 anyway.

Anyway, the Build-A-Figure of this wave is Puck (again, it's a Mini BAF). I haven't made a review of the BAF but I'll surely update this article once I'm done with it. So, the figures of this wave includes a modern rendition of

Customized Action Figure Showcase: Deathlok by Leech Customs

For quite some time now, I’ve been collecting toys; I’ve encountered a few good ones and but every now and again, there are those I regret buying because of the messed up paint application, sculpt or even a messed up everything. Though as a “completist," I always go for buying every figure from a wave. Going back to the “not-so-good” figures – when I was new to the hobby, I was able to encounter people called toy customizers.

They’re the ones who modify action figures and make them look “better." For the past few years, I’ve worked with a good number of them and in the next few weeks, I’ll be sharing with you some of the pieces I’ve commissioned and their amazing customizers.

For this week’s Customized Action Figure Showcase, I bring you, Leech Custom’s Uncanny X-Force Deathlok! The figure’s based off the character’s look during the Uncanny X-Force run with Wolverine leading the team, along with Psylocke, Archangel, Fantomex and Nightcrawler. The character joined the team halfway through series. Deathlok was introduced and depicted well during that issue.

This customized action figure’s base figures are Ultron, Jigsaw and the Original Deathlok figure.

Here’s a quick video showcasing the figure. Take a closer look at the details and sculpt!

Marvel Legends Rocket Raccoon Series Review

Hey, how's it going, guys? Finally, I was able to finish all the reviews of this wave's first assortment. The figures were released last week at SM Megamall's Toy Kingdom and Robinson's Galleria's Toys R' Us. The series was sold as a set except for Punisher (Thunderbolts Variant). The sets were said to be limited and surprisingly, the sets allocated for the release at Toy Kingdom were almost out within an hour. We saw a few sets below the table but not sure if those are Legends. Again, thanks to Playkit and Mr. Eric John Cruz for informing the community about the said release.

The assortment includes the following characters:

Build-A-Figure Rocket Raccoon

Jim Lee style Jean Grey

Wrecker of the Wrecking Crew

Kaine Parker Scarlet Spider-Man

Modern Hawkeye

Black Panther

Punisher (Thunderbolts Variant) Chase Figure

I must say that this wave has the Series 1 feel, it has a great line-up, minimal issues and has some pretty iconic characters in it. Anyways, I discussed a lot of things in each character's video review and pointed out some issues as well. Lastly, the wave is a must have -- seriously. A lot of people doubted it due to the issues about assortment, distribution, new waves without variants and all. Now that it's all explained why there are no variants, I guess everyone should be back on track since Legends (as a name) will end but the production of similar figures of the same scale will still continue.
