Toy Haul: 04-21-11

Seeing as my Blogger Buddy Iok, has been finding stuff at Marshall's. I decided to go out and visit Marshall's, T.J. Maxx and Lot Less to see if they had any Marvel Universe figures or Wolverine Origins figures in their stores.

I picked up the Iron Man Rolling Battle Headquarters! Ever since I saw this at Toy Fair last year I wanted it. But when I saw that Target had it for $49.99 I had to pass. Luckily good things go to those who wait, especially when it comes to movie toys. lol

Why fly when you can roll!

After looking at the back I decided that this was the perfect vehicle for my Marvel Universe figures. Since days before I had bought that skate park thing for exactly the same reason. (To take pictures of my figures with it.)

All your base belongs to us.

The Iron Man that comes with this vehicle is teh suck, but I did not buy this vehicle for the figure. The figure has a ball jointed neck, swivel shoulders. The legs are connected to the hips by a swivel joint, hinged knees and ball jointed ankles. There is some extra armor for the figure, but you don't really need it.

25 dollars is a good price, but 16.99 is better!
I also picked up a Mercenary Wraith Figure too. But this would be the 3rd time I picked that figure up. I would recommend this to any Marvel Fan since we will be getting a vehicle for Cap in the future.

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!

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.
