Marvel Legends Avengers Maria Hill - Cobie Smulders - Action Figure Review

Marvel Legends Avengers Maria Hill - Cobie Smulders - Action Figure Review
Maria Hill
Welcome to a review of the Marvel Legends Avengers Maria Hill - Cobie Smulders - action figure.

If you follow the current Marvel Universe, then you know that Maria Hill has disappeared resulting in Hydra Cap being promoted to the head of SHIELD.

But we don't like Hydra Cap so we don't care.

We also don't like the fact that Maria Hill - hell the entire reconstituted SHIELD - was missing from Captain America Civil War.

Anyway, this is the Maria Hill from the Marvel Legends Infinite Series Agents of Shield 3-pack which includes her, Agent Coulson, Nick Fury & Maria Hill.

She didn't come with any weapons so we gave her.... we're really not sure what she's armed with. We think it's from HALO.

Star Wars Expanded Universe Jedi Master Corran Horn and Whistler Action Figures

Star Wars Expanded Universe Jedi Master Corran Horn and Whistler Action Figures
Corran Horn and Whistler
Welcome to a review of the Rogue Squadron pilot who would become a Jedi Master, Corran Horn and his R2 Whistler action figures from the Star Wars Expanded Universe. 

One of the saddest things about Star Wars Episode VII is that is disregards almost 20 years of incredible story-lines and characters. Seriously people who scoff at these books because "All that matters are the movies" should learn to read. 

While some (one) characters, like Grand Admiral Thrawn, have been revived from the discard pile, they're so far mere shadows of what they can be.

Meanwhile Corran Horn remains on the discard pile. Corran was a "police detective" of the Corellian Security Force. He ran afoul with an Imperial Intelligence Officer and went into hiding - later to join the rebellion. Following the Battle of Endor, Wedge Antilles  was mandated with re-building Rogue Squadron and Corran signed up and became Rogue 9. Personal ambition made him strive to be the best pilot in the legendary squadron but his ass was kicked by pilots Tycho Celchu and Wedge Antilles

The 2nd Logan Movie Trailer is out from 20th Century Fox and it is fight-fight-fight galore! Highlights include:

  • And she pops her claws - quite violently
  • There's an X-Men comic book in Logan's universe
  • Logan really is getting old because X-23 makes him look even older. 
  • Charles Xavier lives to be 90

Big Hero 6 Baymax Armor Up Action Figure Quick Review

Big Hero 6 Baymax Armor Up Action Figure Quick Review
"On a scale of one to ten, how would you rate your pain?"
Welcome to a review of the Armor Up Baymax Action Figure from Marvel's Big Hero 6 Animated movie toyline.

We guess Baymax needs no introduction, this is Baymax "...your personal healthcare companion."  - unless you hate the Disney/Marvel version and prefer the original Marvel Comics version - (A triple changer who has a "Battle-Dragon" and "Action-Mecha" mode - hence the name Baymax [?])

Anyway, this is Baymax bearing his 2.0 armor. The original armor of Baymax was more.... ninja inspired.

On his own, Baymax supposedly can lift 1,000 lbs. We don't think Hiro "Zero" Hamada bothered to increase his quite considerable strength. He instead gave him protection, ranged fire (Thanks to his rocket fists), enhanced sensors and, the ability to fly (With Hiro attached safely to his back).

Russian Guardians 2017 English Trailer

iVideos has been kind enough to upload on to their channel, the English dubbed version of the last trailer for the Russian super-hero movie Guardians before it airs in February.

The special effects are not quite up to par with Hollywood - it looks more like a video-game than a movie - but it looks VERY promising! If the world went crazy seeing a Racoon fire off a few rounds, then let's see what happens when a were-bear does it!

Highlights include:
  • The Guardians 
    • Ler (Sebastien Sisak), the Geomancer. 
    • Ursus (Anton Pampushniy), the mini-gun wielding were-bear
    • Khan (Sanzhar Madiev): super speed, super strength combined with wicked blades
    • Xenia (Alina Lanina): An acrobat with the ability to turn invisible and turn his body into liquid form. She also makes a great Borscht.
  • The bad-guy: August Kratov (Stanislav Shirin): Comes with robot army and uses an exoskeleton that allows him to beat up Ler when he's armored up with rocks, and the balls to challenge a big-Russian Bear to hand-to-hand combat. 
  • The Avengers level of levity - note the bear wags his tail once he's in the elevator. 
We'd love to see them go toe-to-toe with the Avengers - even if they're outnumbered.

Guardians hits theaters in February

GI Joe Rise of Cobra ROC Dialtone Quick Review

GI Joe Rise of Cobra ROC Dialtone Quick Review
Dear Penthouse: Does Marvel own GI Joe? 
Welcome to a quick review of the Toys R'Us Exclusive GI Joe Rise of Cobra Dialtone.

Dialtone is a part of a five-action figure troop building pack that includes movie variants of Footloose, Law & Order, Repeater, and Zartan.

With the exception of Zartan, none of them appeared in either movie but Dialtone does make an appearance in the GI Joe The Rise of Cobra video-game - the same game where Agent Helix makes an appearance - the character from where Dialtone here gets her head.

Her blister card states that her name is Jill S. Morelli and the video-game identifies her as the sister of "Jack S. Morelli" - the original Dialtone. They've been identified as brother and sister.

You'd think that the GI Joes would have another code-name available for her. Do people today even know what a dial-tone is?

GI Joe Jodie "Shooter" Craig Review

GI Joe Jodie "Shooter" Craig Review
Jodie "Shooter" Craig
Welcome to a review on the 14th original GI Joe member Jodie "Shooter" Craig.

In 1982 Marvel released the GI Joe A Real American Hero Comic book with 13 original GI Joe characters: Hawk, Snake-Eyes, Scarlett, Stalker, Zap, Rock & Roll, Short-Fuze, Flash, Grand Slam, Clutch, Grunt, Breaker & Steeler. However a 14th GI Joe Member is mentioned in a panel listing the 13 original Joes - Shooter (Which was a joke/tribute to Marvel then Editor-in-Chief Jim Shooter).

However that character's face was blocked out and "Shooter" would remain in the shadows for decades until Devil's Due Comic's GI Joe Declassified # 1 in 2006 which revealed Shooter to be a an attractive NCO assigned to the Chaplain's Motor Pool who was secretly a sniper assigned to the GI Joes.

Ten years after that, and she's finally an action figure.

Justice League Movie Ezra Miller Flash Uniform

DC Movie Flash Costume Ezra Miller
The Flash: All tied up
This image of Ezra Miller as the Flash for the upcoming DC Justice League uniform has hit the internet, and it looks like crap in our opinion. Ignoring the damage, it looks like it's being held together by wire. 

WTF DC!!!!???
