The long wait is over – the Mezco One:12 Collective Dark Knight Returns Batman is finally shipping, and mine has been delivered!
Wow, it’s been a while and I’m glad to be back! To kick off my return to AFP, I’ve got some Quick Pics of the new ThreeZero Game of Thrones Tyrion Lannister.
But first I’ve got to give a big “Thanks!” to my girlfriend’s son, Brendan (a RABID Game of Thrones fan and action figure connoisseur), for letting me shoot these photos of Tyrion.
That’s right – I’m back baby! And I’ve brought pics of the fairly new ROML 2 Big Time Spider-Man!
When I ordered this figure from HasbroToyShop.com, I was hoping I might luck out and get the Future Foundations deco Spidey as I’m not a big fan of this costume. But I must admit that he’s starting to grow on me. The new ankle design really ups BT Spidey’s cool factor and turns him into hand candy. Now if only Hasbro had used a glow-in-the-dark paint instead of simulating it with overspray…
Now for your consideration – the ROML Terrax Wave Figure 2 – Hope Summers.
I haven’t read an X-Men book since reading the TPB collections of the Whedon/Cassady run on Astonishing X-Men, so I knew absolutely zilch about this character. But from a quick Google search I learned that Hope is Cable’s adopted mutant daughter that he whisked away to the future to raise and keep safe from those that think her to be a danger to mankind.
True Believers, Marvel Zombies and No Prize winners rejoice; Marvel Legends has returned!
Both ROML Terrax Wave and Arnim Zola Wave are hitting stores and online dealers now and the toy collecting F.O.O.M.* are in a feeding frenzy. I was lucky enough to be at my local Target on a morning when a fresh case had been put on the pegs and couldn’t resist picking up Steve Rogers, Extremis Iron Man and Thor. Later in the day, I went back for Ghost Rider, but he was gone. In a fit of anger and remorse, I scooped up Constrictor and Hope. Klaw was nowhere to be seen.
And now, without further ado, here’s the skinny on ROML Terrax Wave Figure #1, the ML with the longest title; Commander Steve Rogers – Super Soldier!
