The Dark Knight that still reigns




From the Legends of Dark Knight series by Kenner in 1998, the Batman design is an outstanding figure. You will know why when you see him. Yes, it's the cape that he is don on. The full power of the cape that Batman tries to startle his "prey" before he attacks. Batman knows first impressions always last, so he has to make his presence felt and fear by his enemy. I guess Spawn has also grasp this essence and made his cape more alive and menacing too. No wonder all Superheroes wants cape, but none does match up to Batman and Spawn.

For the figure himself, he is in a regular blue and grey suit with high pointy "ears" and gauntlet but as in the 90's figure, articulation is the basic five points only which limits his posing.

The face sculpt is as impressive with an angry grunt.

Since variant has been a growing interest in the 90's too, there is another black suit Batman for your interest. Whichever piece you get, he wins....


 





Digging back into my toy chest, I found Skywing Street Bike Batman which I have been holding on for a decade and he does have some resemblance in body parts to the Dark Knight with some added sculpting. I am suspecting he is a riding figure based on his arm and hands posture. Both shares similar physic. body mold and gauntlet design with some changes on posture and sculpting. Unfortunately, I do not have the bike for him to ride on. He may need to wait for another decade for his ride to come.

Who likes a Clown ?



Clown has gone from funny to crazy to scary.....and a nightmare for some children.

No matter how much you hate or love a clown, here is one clown that needs a little introduction. For his sculpt and psychopathic look will not be pleasing but a definite great figure worth your discovery.

Originate from the Spawn Classic series 20, Clown IV here is a variant who dons a leather jacket, slash a knife, steps on a manhole cover and keeps a pet rat. How about that?

The RED Villain of Spiderman - Carnage



There are many Carnage figures done over the years and this Carnage from the Spiderman Classics series by Toybiz is one which I considered to be in my list.

Apart from the pointless trap accessories, the figure himself has great face sculpt and black wash over his red body. With an articulation designed by Toybiz, he is one that can strike some decent good poses for you.

I have yet to have the latest Hasbro Carnage to compare on hand but I like the articulated claws and head sculpt of this guy here.

A good reviews can be found from good fellows at OAFE on this Carnage

Black Costume Spiderman Classics Series 1



 The Black costume Spiderman and way back in the Series 1 of Spiderman Classics in year 2000, Toybiz has given us a cool black spidey with break through articulations at that time. Being one of the pioneer figures of articulations, he still does not lose out to the current Marvel Legends.

I have not decided to open him out yet and I think he looks just fine in the package with the comic book inside. Maybe when I got sick of him in the package then I may release him for some fun.

Raider of Dark Age



My recent recollection of old school Mcfarlane toys from the 90's and he is Raider from the Series 12 of Dark Age.

Being more than a decade old, fully armored, Raider still able to impress on his details and Centaur stance. While back then, they still use hair-like materials for tails and hairs for action figures, which is kind of a signature feature for Spawn figures.

Looks like he is hunting competitively against the Predators for prize skulls with this spear.

This Centaur is on a fierce side but if you like mystical creatures or horses, he might works for you.

The Holocaust - Spiderman Classics Ultimate Lizard


Ultimate Lizard does has his ways and we rarely get a complete lizard composure of him made. This was originally produced by good fellas of Toybiz and still comes in pretty rare.

The usual torn shirt are there from the transformation and he features a great deal of skin textures of a lizard. He even have lizard fins like a mini Godzilla.

The only thing which puts adult collectors away will be the tail sweeping gimmick that comes with a push button on his side which is very annoying to look at. However, putting that aside, he is one great Lizard to get. As collectors, do no missed him in the holocaust.

Who Let the Dog Out? Hound of Predators !



Every hunter needs a dog, so does Predators.

The Tracker Predator bred and trained the Hounds for efficient hunting until their trophy is entirely eaten up which they end up price-less.

There are so many horns and tusks going around the Hound that it looks like his head is very well protected by it and he got plenty of canine teeth in his mouth. Is he chewing teeth or prey? An in-built power-grinding machine.

He is pretty well articulated for his limbs and legs and even with open mouth action!

If you are looking to be the leader of the pack, build this army of Hounds.

Black Panther of Marvel Legends



From the Marvel Legends series in the past, we had Black Panther in Sentinel Series and to date, I still think he is still the best Black Panther made even though Hasbro has given us a new Panther.

This is one figure that clearly shows black figures can be as detail and amazing even with a single tone. Apart from his gold trimmings for his claws and gauntlet and cape and silver eyes, he is black. There are even textures in the gold portions and belt. Wow, his claws are fully articulated too.

Sculpting is detail to every level to his boots. The cape is removable but having it adds supremacy to him.

If you ever had only one choice of Panther, this is the one to get. Somehow, for me, he has the Egyptian feel probably because of the gold.

Welcome to HELL ! I am Spawn !



From Hell Spawn issue 11 comes Spawn Series 24....Hell Spawn.

He is one cool figure with needless to comments on his details and total lack of articulations which he aren't suppose to pose.

All he does is stand firmly with the help of a rotatable base and holds his chains of hooks.

Basically , what you see here is the best and only supposed position he should and can be.

He does not look good in the package but he definitely strikes out when he is out for a pose.

Here he comes for the Salvation !

Spawn VII on Throne

This is Spawn from Series 21 and like many other Spawn incarnation done by McFarlane, he still puts a WOW factor amongst all other action figures along the line. Though he cannot be truly classifies as an action figure due to his extreme lack of  "proper" articulations, he is still one fine dude that you will take notice of.

The box is not very impressive and plainly done which you can do without it. The position and his pondering mind over the skull on his hand makes a statement to the whole feel of this figure, other than it's impressive detailing added to his throne.

But he is a bit on a small and skinnier side compares to his other counterparts which might be due to his rat infested throne. Pest busters anyone?

Overall, a neat piece of art for display even he is more than a decade old.
