Toy Viewing : Wrecker from the Marvel Legends

From the wrecker crew, this is Wrecker who joins into one of the four crew members, marketing stunts has painstaking trying to disperse them apart from your purchase. Creating a hard to get impact for the other remaining members.

Just like Piledriver, he is the mass market figure from the rocket racoon series. Again, the other partner went into the abyss like Thunderbolt in Arnim zola series.

Well, may be one day, the crew will be cracking together again under my charge.

Wrecker is a big figure in current Marvel Legends standards produced by Hasbro but not as big as what we have in the old times. Basically, he arms, hands, limps and feet are reuse in Piledriver, he is givern a new head sculpt and body mold, combine with a super power crowbar.

I like the design of his clothes which reminds me of the earlier times during the world war period. His head sculpt is one which really details and does not disappoint.

With regular articulations like Piledriver, mine just seems to be a bit stiff to manipulate around for some moves.

Overall, a good size figure and a real detail head sculpt to go along with other bad ass evil-doers.

Toy Viewing : Sasquatch of Marvel Legends

Sasquatch from the Toybiz Marvel Legends line is one of the under-rated figures and I would say he is an interesting figure which can double up as Big Foot, Yeti which you may need to fill in for other toy lines you may have. He is so versatile.

Being a Marvel Legends figure, he is packed with details which are hidden under the orange tone paint job and you have to examine him clearly to appreciate.

Not only he is a tall figure which matches up the Abomination, his facial features, claws and feet are well-sculpted.

Mine just cannot stand well on its own and tends to fall, but I have managed to explore the poses which is able to bring out his nemesis to showcase here is one that he will not fall, yet coupled with action and sense of speed.

For a snapshot, here is Sasquatch in orange. In case, you like it white, he has another variant in white.

What's the Catch : MOTU Chief Carnivus


My very first Masters of the Universe after decades and I bought Chief Carnivus, not He-Man or Skeletor.

Got this figure at good price since his shield has dropped off inside the package and this figure can co-star in Thundercats as well. Two for the price of one.

Mattel has done a good job in putting details on the figure and done up a white mailer box package. Somewhat similar to what you will get when you buy and Apple product. A touch of class!

Encompasses the grandeur and excitement of owning a classic MOTU figure, is what you will anticipate in this line.

Collection Exposed : MOTU 2000 action figures

It's September !!! A month to rejoice as we are crossing over to the last quarter of 2013 soon and Christmas will be here before you know it. So before you start whining the year has passed, you still have three more months to accomplish whatever you have left off.

For now, I got to catch up with my posts and here is what I can share to you. MOTU 2000 !!!

After the masters of universe in the 1980, we have the arrival of MOTU 2000 which sparks off a new era of He-Man fans and old fans alike but somehow, it did sway off as many expected the remake of the old characters and not a rebirth.

That somehow costs some downhill run for MOTU which mattel tries to revive its formal glory of the characters.

However, things are not as bad since some collectors still claims their rights into this line with a different perspective though the power of Grayskull may not have exploded until the Classics line came upon.

Looking back, MOTU 2000 is actually better design in its way and details can still match up til today's standard though they lack some articulations in comparisons.

So here are some of my little collection of them.
