Diamond Select Toys Minimates: Series 69 Most Wanted Group Shots
I gotta be honest. I didn’t think I’d ever love a Minimate as much as I love my Richard Rider Nova figure…but that Black Knight is the reason for the season. I’m so happy to have Series 69 for a bunch of reasons, but he’s runaway the top of the list. A fantastic Minimate in every way. That doesn’t diminish the rest of the wave at all though, you have some killer figures here, a classic Falcon, Tigra, Enchantress, Mandroids Mandroids Mandroids, and two versions of Blizzard, two beautiful, very eye catching versions of Blizzard. The blue on modern blizzard might be my favorite paint on an action figure ever! This series is fantastic, and you should go out hunting for it today!
Marvel Legends 3.75 2017 Wave 5: Gold Ultron
Long Live Marvel Legends 3.75! Let’s celebrate another wave of Marvel Legends 3.75″ figures by kicking it off with some solid gold! …painted plastic. Let’s also celebrate that today, 9/8/17 is the first day of the first ever HASCON in Rhode Island, and MUReview will be on hand to bring you all the Marvel Legends info you need to know….now, on with the show. The last time we got a full wave of Marvel Legends 3.75″ figures was round about December of 2016 with the Moon Knight, Maestro, All New All Different Iron Man, Wolverine, Lady Deadpool and Spider-UK figures. Since then we’ve gotten a slew of “non-wave” style releases. We’ve gotten movie 2-packs of Spider-Man and Vulture, Doctor Strange and Doctor Strange, Yondu and Star-Lord, as well as a non-movie 2-pack of Shocker and Spider-Man. We got a Toys R Us exclusive Guardians of the Galaxy Box Set. We got an Amazon exclusive Spider-Man Sinister 6 Box Set. Even more recently, we got the finally released gem of Executioner and Enchantress, along side the movie 2-pack of Thor and Hulk. Blurring the lines pretty heavily, we did actually get a 3.75″ SDCC exclusive too, it wasn’t necessarily pure Marvel, but there were hints in that absolutely astonishing IDW Revolution Box Set. By now you are thinking, what is the doofus plodding on about? Sure, that’s a lot of fancy blue linked text, but what’s the point. That fancy blue linked text, each piece represents a 3.75″ figure we got for 2017. Between December 2016 and now, it hasn’t been a barren wasteland of no 3.75″ figures, there has really been quite a lot of releases out of Hasbro Marvel in the scale. These aren’t necessarily the type of releases we are used to, but they are a lot of releases, and I hope seeing them all in one place is enough to quiet the trumpeters that have screamed for so long that this line is dying and or dead. It’s still here. It’s different than it was in 2010, but as with all things, time changes, time evolves things. I have been pretty happy with the releases this year, if you click the links, you’ll see that and why in each case. I’m not gonna lie though, I’ve been waiting for this Wave since it’s announcement at SDCC 2016 very impatiently. I’m glad it’s finally here….happier still that I get to share it with you today!
