STAR WARS Black Series Princess Leia

Presenting Princess Leia from the STAR WARS Black Series 6" toy-line.

This I believe is the 3rd STAR WARS Black Series figure we've reviewed following Luke Skywalker, Darth Maul and R2-D2 and we were all praises for this new line and are still now fantasizing over rumors that a Black Series X-Wing will be released in the immediate future - it would be HUGE!!!!

So when rumors of a Princess Leia in a Steel Bikini was going to be released, we absolutely had to get it. We waited patiently for it and then we heard that it was being circulated already in chase quantities throughout dealers in Metro Manila. As luck would have it we finally found one in Kramer's Toy Warden in the Black Market of Greenhills.

And here she is, the most iconic slave outfit in the galaxy. Princess Leia in her Steel Bikini!

STAR WARS Collectors Series Star Destroyer

Presenting a very rare STAR WARS Collectors Series Star Destroyer!

One of the staple symbol of fear, oppression and control of the Galactic Empire, the Star Destroyer!

Specifically, this is a Kuat Drive Yards Imperial II - class Star Destoyer. You can tell the difference between an Imperial Star Destroyer and an ImpStar Deuce - the most prominent of which is the replacement of the tractor beam targeting system between the sensor globes up on the command tower with a communications array.

This is the even more heavily armed, heavily armored and heavily shielded version of a ship that was designed to destroy whole star-systems.

Carnor Jax Sith Apprentice to the Dark Lady Lumiya had this to say about a Star Destroyer: "Have you ever seen what a Star Destroyer can do to the surface of an unshielded planet? Stones run like water and sand turns to glass."

STAR WARS Luke Skywalker Bespin Fatigues

Presenting Luke Skywalker in the fatigues as he appeared in the Cloud City of Bespin in Star Wars: The Empire Strikes back - from the Star Wars Vintage Toy Series.

Here's the thing that confuses us though: This is commonly referred to as Luke Skywalker in his Rebel Uniform right? Has anyone ever seen anyone else in the rebel army dressed this way? A quick review of our rather vast collection says no. It's clearly military given the number of pockets making it quite reminiscent of modern military uniforms, but it does not have any insignias nor does it appear any where else.

A work jumpsuit perhaps? Something many people just assumed was a rebel uniform.

What if: The Black Widow gained the power of Thor?

The Black Widow with the Power of Thor. Well there's something you don't see everyday - and we certainly didn't see that coming. But yes, that's Natalia "Natasha" Alianovna Romanova AKA the Black Widow wielding Thor's Hammer and gaining his powers in the process.

Marvel Legends Captain America - The Winter Soldier

Presenting Captain America from the Marvel Legends The Winter Soldier series.

When the Heroic Age of the Marvel Universe started following the fall of Norman Osborne from power, there were two Captain Americas and Steve Rogers decided to give up his shield to Bucky Cap and assumed the title of Commander Rogers as the new Head of SHIELD. The position came with a new costume which we was redesigned/used in the Captain America: The Winter Soldier movie - which we now see here.

We were frankly a bit concerned in the early trailers that showed Cap as Commander Rogers because frankly we believe that Bucky makes a horrible Captain America. He simply does any moral ascendancy and he's a charismatic bore and we could not bear to see Bucky Cap - especially since the guy needs his uniform to remind him where his genitals are.

Marvel Legends Black Cat Skyline Sirens

Presenting the bootylicious Black Cat from the Marvel Legends Spider-man Skyline Sirens series.

We at the Dungeon were severely disheartened when sometime in 2004 (?) Toybiz released a Marvel Legends Black Cat along with a Spider-Man Sinister Six pack, and to say that it looked horrible was an understatement. The Sinister Six Black Cat looked like a transexual who was a bondage fashion victim. There was nothing sexy, hot or appealing about that figure and quite frankly the sooner we forget about her, the better. The only thing that the Sinister Six Black Cat had going for her was her high articulation which was as much a boon as it was a bane because once her joints loosened, posing her became a problem.

So we're really happy that a real homage to the woman who stole Peter Parker's heart has come into existence and we felt that we absolutely had to have her.

Robocop 3.0 2014 Action Figure

Presenting a Robocop 3.0 Action Figure figure based upon the 2014 movie from Jada Toys.

A lot of people did not like the reboot. That's sad. We at the Dungeon loved the movie.

Yes it wasn't as violent - making it a more watered down version of the original, but we felt that it had a better, more realistic story: We enjoyed the preview of the future of medical technology and the realization that such developments are not that far away from becoming a reality; we enjoyed the twist where it was Murphy's humanity that ovethrew his programming - unlike what happened in the original movie, and; We liked how he was able to move faster (i.e. he can actually run) than his former counterpart.

True though, we have to admit that it looks like Robocop's director Jose Padilha has a severe case of Bat-envy. Making him all black does not make him any less or more "tactical" and we sincerely doubt that hardened criminals would be intimidated by his color.

Lego Flash KO

Presenting a KO version of a LEGO DC Character, the Flash.

We at the Dungeon are actually HUGE Flash fans. Specifically we are HUGE HUGE HUGE!!!! Barry Allen fans.

We are not fans of that horrible pretender, that clown, Wally West - who as far as we are concerned should never return to the DC universe, EVER!!!!

AAaanyway, we're actually wondering why it took us this look to feature a Flash figure.

So yeah, it kinda feels bad that the first Flash figure we chose to feature is a Knock-Off.

But he's just sooo cool!!!!

In the LEGO movie the Flash made an appearance in the first siege of the Octan Tower by Metalbeard where he was "supposedly" killed by an army of Laser Sharks.

Marvel Infinite Series Hulk

Presenting the Incredible Hulk from the Marvel Infinite Toy Series.

On a totally unrelated point, there was this question posted on Facebook recently: "Who would win in a fight? Batman or the Incredible Hulk?"

Now we know what you're thinking: Batman beats Superman; Superman beats the Hulk, ergo: Batman beats the Hulk. The logic is sound.

Except that the Hulk has no Kryptonite.

The Incredible Hulk is nigh indestructible. The only way to beat the Hulk is to be bigger and badder - and that's rare following the near destruction of the Super-hero population of the Marvel Universe at the hands of a righteously angry Hulk.

So why is he wearing armor?
