Toy Haul NYC

This ones a little late. I went out with my Bro on Wednesday the 16th and we hit up a couple of stores.

So the firts one was Target. They had the Marvel Universe pegs full because there was a promotion of buying Marvel vs Capcom 3 and you get one figure free. They also had a tag on the comic packs showinf that they're reduced to $14.99 which is a good price. But it seems that Sentry and Spider-man will forever warm the pegs.

I hope that I can find a whole lot of them on clearance. I like the Sentry and the Spider-Man is ok. But I think we have too many Spider-Men.

I found some good figures on the pegs. In this pic I was about to buy the Black Widow and Multiple Man. But decided against it. They didn't pull at my heartstrings good enough. I will get them eventually, but they looked like they would be easy finds.

Then after that we went To the Toys R Us in College Point and I just saw some remmants of the bucky wave. An Iron Patriot, Union Jack and 2 Kitty Prides. Transformer Animated Deluxes are about 6.99, but the Animated Rodimus is still $17 dollars and change.

But in the Marvel section I saw this.

 Another jerk strikes! I would use more colorful langauge but "the children!" At first my brother thought it was a robotic Iron Man, but I knew better and I explained to him what had happened.

The last stop was the Pathmark where I picked up the Havok before. I caved in and bought the Secret Wars Comic Pack with Magneto/Spider-Man in his black costume. After watching Prime92's video and realizing that the eyes were sculpted. I decided it was a better one than the Spider-Man 3.75 line's figure.

Magneto still sucks Iron I Beams. We need a Dark Magneto in the line.

New Stuff For "The Avengers: Earth's Mightiest Heroes" Cartoon

While watching the special features on the Avengers DVD's they announced new looks and new characters for the series, which is awesome!

I like the series and the way they tackle stories for the Marvel Universe. The Ultimates line of comics did the same thing, but somehow they got it wrong. These guys got it right.

Halo: New York Toy Fair 2012

Wow! I didn't expect much from McFarlane but I am impressed. Even though my toy heart was broken by the realization that Halo Reach ends with series 6 ( I expected an unhelmeted Emile and Noble Six? in Series 7) But as long as the scale of the new stuff sticks with Reach I'll be happy. If not I hope the quality control gets better.

Here's the stuff I'm excited for!

Super Hero Squad Online Review

If you haven't gotten my open invitation to the beta, and accepted it. You're missing out on being a Marvel Super Hero. Unlike DC's MMORPG you can play as Thor, or Spider-Man if you wanted to. But lets go into the review shall we.

Size Comparison - Halo Reach Video Series

I love the Halo Reach line of figures from McFarlane Toys. I don't know why I didn't jump on the bandwagon earlier.

But I've always gotten into toy lines after or near the end of their run. I don't know why, it just is.

Top 10 Halo Reach Figures!!!

To end the year of doom 2012, I'm making this list and checking it twice.

Sadly the most you will find in stores is series 6. All these figures are awesome. EVEN THE SABRE PILOT!!! (with his obnoxious eyebrows).

So here you go, from 10 to 1...


 10. Carter:

The leader of Noble Team and one of the coolest armor designs comes in at number 10. Not because he's the worst, but because it might be too obvious if he's number 1. I love the Commando armor, the blue color and the distinctive markings.
