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!

The Amazing SpiderHulk


The amazing Spiderman breeds a weird creation....SpiderHulk!

Basically, he is Spiderman combine with Hulk. Scientifically, you can think as a mutation or just Hulk cosplaying Spiderman or Spiderman mutate into Hulk.

Whatever reasons you can possibly imagine and I guess this is how he is being thought out by the designer who is crazy enough to try.

Lucky for his craziness and dare, we have this Amazing SpiderHulk action figure to stand among the ranks of Marvel Legends.

With the current toy trends, we will probably not going to get figures rise from such occasion.

Some things may look better now but we lost a lot of weird possibilities in what we can expect in toys now.

Let's look at SpiderHulk. This is a very well build figure with traces of 90's toys that includes a play feature that all seems lame now.

Despite the feature which adults collectors do not appreciate, he is full of surprises in sculpt and articulations especially on his fingers.

The tears of cloth revealing Hulk's green skin is commendable.

Many has complain about his play features but it was design for kids back then so appreciate the era of toys.

Now I have claim another wanted piece of fun. He is worth it!

Lord of Darkness by #Mcfarlane

McFarlane's Movie Maniacs era brought in the Lord of Darkness from the 1985 flim. The devil with big horns have a pair of boasted ego hanging over his head.

I have not watch the movie yet and guess who is cast in this film? Tom Cruise !

Never mind about the film but this figure is detail to the very bottom of his hoofs.The only accessories he came with is a sword and a display stand with a movie card.

The cloak on him is very detail and fixated his arm movements. Surprisingly, he has ball joints for his shoulders and ankle but you cannot articulate his shoulders as he is restricted by the cloak he wore.

He is pretty much rare as before and even now. So if you ever saw him, give him a chance minus the devil.
