Marvel Mega Bloks Series 3 Review: Cyclops

without comments

The third series of the Marvel Mega Bloks figures have been found in the wild and it seems like Mega Bloks is trying to get as many different characters out there as quickly as possible before the LEGO Marvel sets arrive. In an entire wave, there isn’t a single Iron Man and only one Spidey? Amazing! Read the rest of this entry »

Marvel Super Hero Squad Review: Cyclops & Marvel Girl

without comments

Usually I know what I’m talking about when it comes to the Marvel Universe, but there is one exception: Jean Grey. A founding member of the X-Men who seems to have more clones than Spider-Man sometimes, Jean is an absolute mess from a continuity standpoint – especially when alternate timelines are taken into account!

Marvel Super Hero Squad Review: Collector’s Pack #2

without comments

The first Super Hero Squad Collector’s Pack was a decent jumping on point as a set for the line and included 8 repaints of various figures. But the set was overproduced and went on clearance. So when Hasbro released the second Collector’s Pack, they made less of them but included two fan favorite characters with brand new sculpts! So of course it was more popular and nearly impossible to find.

Marvel Super Hero Squad Mega Pack Review: Sentinel & Cyclops

without comments

Of all the Super Hero Squad mega figures, one of them made the most sense from the start: the Sentinel! The massive robots that seemed to crash as often as a Windows operating system, the sentinels have always been a plague to the X-Men. But in the last few years the Sentinels have gone from mindless killing machines to giant protectors.

Marvel Super Hero Squad Review: Danger Room Debacle 5-Pack

without comments

I find it funny that I can pin point the exact breaking point for me when it came to Super Hero Squad. My friends insisted that the toys were childish and would be a waste of money. But I have a background in marketing and have one weakness when it comes to products: excellent packaging. So when I first saw the Danger Room Debacle in stores, I immediately bought it because the packaging was that good.

The package is half a cylinder about a foot long. The open window shows four X-Men facing off against Magneto in the Danger Room. The Danger Room is done simply: two ramps while the rest is various shades of light blue. It looks pretty much exactly how I think the Danger Room should look while it is inert. Plus the packaging is designed to let all the figures be removed without damaging the backdrop! It is excellent design work and clearly a precursor to the display that came with Slave I.

Toy Review: Repulsor Racer with Iron Man and Cyclops

without comments

Wave 2 of the Super Hero Squad vehicle sets continues with two more packs, the first of which is the Repulsor Racer with Iron Man and Cyclops! Still packaged in their awful design that I ranted on and on about already, it’s time to crack it open and see what’s inside!

Toy Review – Wolverine Super Hero Squad X-Cutioner’s Song

without comments

Oh X-Cutioner’s Song, I remember it as being poly-bagged and costing an extra quarter for each issue. A cross-over of epic proportions that in retrospect was really only responsible for the Legacy Virus and, in turn, the death of Colossus.

Plots within plots are revealed as Stryfe takes his revenge on those he believes betrayed him in a desolate future. Kidnapping Cyclops and Marvel Girl, he hides them both in a heavily protected base on the moon. Only Wolverine has the power to destroy the base’s defenses and rescue his fellow X-Men.
