Toy Haul: 03-27-11

Hey there true believers! I know it's a little late, but this is what I got and what I did on Sunday.

First off let me say that I was disappointed that Toys R Us didn't have it's 2 for 10 sale this week. If it doesn't happen next week then. I'm gonna stop hoping. I'll keep on checking the site every Sunday but I won't be hyped about the last week of the month. Which is when I predict the sale will always happen.

So I went to Target and I was hoping to find Grey Hulk and Moon Knight. I was lucky to find Spector, but no Banner. :(

Daredevil Body Strikes Again

I really like Moon Knight. He's Marvel's version of Batman, only crazy, I was planning of doing a skit where Khonshu the god of vengeance talks to him. And he appeared to him as a giant hand puppet. lol.

But anyways the figure didn't have any paint defects. I organized the pegs and there were a whole bunch of Black Widows, A.I.M. Soldiers and a considerable amount of Union Jacks, Bucky's and Old Timey Captain America's.

Later that night I went to Toys R Us at Times Square. There was nothing that spoke to the collector in me. But I took a pic.

The "Jean" Wave
 I love seeing all those figures together. That's what I want to see when I have my own store. It's so beautiful.

So at the end of the night I went to a 24 Hour Walgreen's. (A 24 hour Toys R Us would make lots of money) and I was shocked and angered! I saw the new Pursuit of Cobra "Skydive"!

Only at Walgreen's?!

Why does this shock and anger me?

I love going to Walgreen's because even though they have stuff a littler pricier than usual, they get new stuff before Target and Toys R Us. How does that work?!

Anyways I decided to buy it. It was $11.99. But it's the only pursuit of cobra figure that I think is worth buying at that price. I like the Cobra tracker, Conrad Hauser, the new Destro and I like the Jungle Viper.
But I can't buy them at retail. I just don't like them that much.

I'm thinking I can give Sam Jackson the jet pack or make Skydive an Agent of S.H.I.E.L.D. If I can get more when the 2 for 10 sale rolls around, I might just have to army build.

That's it. Let see how next week turns out.

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!

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.
