SDCC 2016: SDCC Exclusive Hasbro Marvel Legends Collector’s Vault Review

SDCC 2016 Exclusive Marvel Legends The Collector’s Vault featuring: The Collector, Cosmo, Lockjaw, Moon Boy, Howard the Duck 
One of the most storied SDCC Exclusive items of all time…on MUReview.net at least, The Collector Vault.  Before SDCC…way before SDCC, this set popped up on eBay.  No one knew what it was, or where it was going, but thanks to some friends that had to have it, MUReview had some up close pictures to share.  Now, finally, this gorgeous set is in our own hands for us to bring you pictures of and give you our own thoughts for.  The set features The Collector, Tanleer Tivan in all of his collecty glory.  It shows his collection in an amazing and clever (as usual) package.  In his collection we have Cosmo, Lockjaw, Moon Boy, Howard the Duck, and a few very special artifacts from the Marvel Comics Universe.  Let’s take a look! read more

Marvel Legends 2016 Wave 1 Review

Marvel Legends 2016 Wave 1 Review

Marvel Legends 2016 Wave 1
2016, a new frontier in toys.  …Well, it’s kind of the same frontier, with different packaging and a different name for the line, still though.  In 2016 Marvel Legends (3.75) wave 1, Marvel fans are showered in the glory of some very long awaited characters arriving to the plastic medium.  Featuring long held fan favorites that help to start and fill out teams, as well as never before seen outfits for some previously released characters.  There is so much to want here!  Wave 1 includes Captain Marvel (Danvers), Ulik, Triton, Yondu, Spider-Man Noir and Iron Man Mk I.  Completists should also note that the case assortment includes a Black Panther figure clad in solid black  (re-issue / re-paint) and a House of M Spider-Man (re-issue, paint looks a little brighter than the original).  For financial reasons, I have stopped trying to keep up with re-issued figures, and I do not collect on card, so the packaging doesn’t do much for me beyond getting to open it…but again, if you have to have everything, you have to grab Black Panther and House of M Spider-Man (again).  It should be noted for clarity, the price point for Marvel Legends 3.75 is $12.99 per figure, NOT $19.99.  There were rumors spinning out of control last week due to a typo on the Hasbro site, and I hope that if it’s not already put to bed, this serves to do so. read more

Marvel Infinite Wave 4 Wonder Man Review

Marvel Infinite Wave 4 Wonder Man Review

Marvel Infinite Wave 4 Wonder Man
Earlier this week, up popped an Ionic Wonder Man variant from Marvel Infinite Wave 4.  The full wave contains solo re-packs of the Guardians of the Galaxy team pack (for a well time movie release coincidence).  This wave is facing some criticism for the lack of changes to the original 3-pack release (the figures are exactly the same).  It is for this reason that I have opted to skip plucking the full wave in favor of spending a little more on getting the one figure I did really want.  Let’s check him out!…ooh but first.  Very very very VERY special thanks to Nel Mercad for hooking a brutha up with this fantastic early plastic! read more
