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.

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!
