Mutant Wolverine turns Werewolf Beast turns more Beastier

When Wolverine turns into werewolf.

Imagine Werewolf with deadlier claws.

He is from the earlier series of Mutant Marvel. An old school figure with howling sound which I have nt tested it.

For Beast, I would say he just turns more Beast. I still keeping him in box to enjoy the wholesomeness of 90's action figures.

The raw sculpt tells his age.

Mandroid of Marvel

This is how toys are played and imagine when you cannot get a proper head on.

The Kilowog head from DC Universe of Cyborg Superman which I got, have no purpose for the BAF. I kept the head and of course it does not fit. But it looks awesome in the Mandroid suit. Doesn't he !

The Ultimate #Venom of #Marvel Select

The Ultimate Venom from Marvel Select !!!

Finally, another holy grail of Marvel Select hunted down.

I got the variant without the symbol and I think he shows off the origins of sculpting and paint work of black and purple.

The best part by looking from the package is the head. The rest will be left for investigation IF I open him out, which is very unlikely for now. He might just stay inside for admiration.

Marvel Legends Damage Done ! Giant Man-Annihilus-HulkBuster

Been missing out posting but am still hunting for action figures.

Damage continue to rise although I am trying to lower by trading out some figures at the same time.
But damage always won over trade out.

Here are some ultimate Legends which I hunt down. Among them, I double a second for Giant Man and Hulkbuster as the current is still in package which I still want to keep them as MISB for now.

Annihilus BAF is not in my want list but at a good price, I give him a try. I must say, he surprises me indeed. This is one figure you have to hold it to know it's menace. I believe he is conceptualized by Toybiz and sold as Hasbro, as he is the leading phase of Hasbro taking over Marvel Legends. This  may be the case for Fin Fang Foom. However, it is not officially justified and just my assumptions based on the articulations ans sculpting comparing to the actual start off of Hasbro Marvel Legends.

I decided to land on another build up Giant Man simply because I do not want to tear out my complete set of Giant Man series from Toybiz. The figures have down in value because of new Marvel Legends. I think staying in package will be the best to maintain a better value than loose figures. How many times you get to build a Giant Man from scratch. I shall leave it for future. For now, I am happy for a standing Giant Man to complete my set of BAF Giants of Toybiz.

Next comes a loose and complete Hulkbuster from Toybiz. The seller adds on an Iron Man mask which I guess should be from Hasbro series.

Some great giants to share with you.

Classic Masters of the Universe - King Grayskull and Gygor Pick!

Nothing beats the pick of King Grayskull and Cygor.

Have been eyeing for a King Grayskull but has been waiting for a reasonable price King even he came loose and complete.

A solid quality plastic and details.

Another came a Cygor.... the yellow green Gorilla that packs with armor and color.

Splendid!

Best Ever BAF - Fin Fang Foom #marvel

 

The one and only BAF (Buld-A-Figure) labelled under Hasbro on one of the first waves and last waves before they seriously cut down to mini baf.

And if you are wondering what is BAF, they are actually action figures not assemble in production but let you assemble yourself. Fancifully, label as BAF in short of Build-A-Figure.

A very innovative way to include a large figure parts in different package of figures and haunts collector to buy the full set in order to complete the final BAF.

It became rather ridiculous to assemble "mini" figures and makes the whole fun shrink.

Let us reminiscence on the good old days of big better BAFs like the Fin Fang Foom.

A big and detail green dragon that is makes assembling him a heck of a hard job since he is very difficult to hunt down if you did not manage to buy them in single set of 8 figures.

Which he is now a very increasing expensive figure to get and probably not going to be re-release forever....

What dreams and hope to see this dragon came into my collection finally arrives on an opportune time and it just lands on me to grab it at a cost that I can accept. I gave in to the inevitable force of the marvel legends and claim the dragon.

Before I even assemble him which many have seen him already. I intend to let you see him in pieces which should be more interesting in a way.

Here he goes.

The END of HULK...END #HULK

 

What is End Hulk? Dying old Hulk's end?

Based on the comic, it is a struggle between Hulk and Banner after a horrific war which he is the last humanity on Earth. The hate of Hulk against Banner arises within themselves. If you are interested you can read it up for more.

But over here, I finally got the End Hulk in my hands. Hulk is one of the characters which I have variations of him, likewise for Spiderman, Batman and Superman. I am still good to see another great Hulk action figure.

For End Hulk which he is one of the figures in the Marvel Legends Fin Fang Foom wave, does have some good details in him. We might not get another End Hulk made for no popular reasons so this End Hulk do not disappoint me.

With details of torn flesh and his white old hair style, he unique compare to other Hulk figures.

The weird experiment that Hasbro gave him is the gear joints that may be functional but ugly and he looks like a Hulk with mechanical joints.

With well-sculpted head and body sculpting adding up a good paint job, this End Hulk is one to pick up if you see him.

Recommended pick!

Marvelous Toad of Marvel Legends


 

I have only knew about the character of Toad from the X-Men movies but in a comic form, this is what I am amazed at.

Though he may not be a famous dude in in the villains of X-Men compare to Sabretooth, Mystique, he is a very unique mutant in a toad form.

We rarely have action figures for Toad and when Toybiz puts him in their Marvel Legends Series 1, he gradually becomes one of the major hit figures in the series and beyond.

Tracing back more than 10 years, this figure still makes his mark on the Marvel Legends line and I do not think we will get another Toad from Hasbro line. Even if we do, it will rarely be as good as this. For the current lines will run in priority of popular characters and fitting into their body molds. Which makes more cost effective.

So for now, Toybiz Toad still reins in the legends.

Though he has quite limited 12 points articulations being in the first series, the details and sculpt still live up to today's stands. The stitches on his outfit, pointy elves shoes, muddy brown paint shades and a toad which feels rubbery.

In terms of accessories, he comes with a base and if you count that toad that stick to his hand. That's tow!

From Head to Toe, front and back, he is don with details and paints. Excellent job.

As a collector, you should get it!

Price is running a bit pricey even for a loose figure without base. At your decent price, you will not be disappointed. This diorama base which I used here does not come with Toad.

Try not to pay a hefty price for a MISB which you will not bear to release him from the plastic prison.

Happy Hunting!

Flash Back : Mutant Monsters Wolverine #Marvel

 

Today, I throw you back to the 90's and zoom back to find one of the crazy idea action figures ever created.

I bumped into Mutant Monsters Wolverine upon my arrival in 1996 and he is a wolf clad with torn trails of Wolverine's X-Men classic uniform.

Is he Wolverine that turns into Wolf? Or he is just a wolf getting a hip of Wolverine.

It was design and meant to be Wolverine turning into wolf and howls his way to fight.

There is many imaginations in this figure. He can be a werewolf, Wolverine in Wolf form, Halloween figure and yes, he howls.....Sound gimmick!

In size, he stands up to 7 inches and display the best Wolverine claws that is straight and mean!

The articulations aren't great and very old school and have an ugly gaps at his armpit area. As a howling wolf, he has a jaw articulation to add on.

Overall, a very interesting action figure.

I would recommend if you are an Wolverine fan, Marvel classics, old school collectors, Monsters collectors, go for it!

He is quite rare to come in 2016. Good luck!
