Amazing Spider-Man Super Hero Squad Review: Super Villain Surprise

without comments

It’s been what feels like ages since any Super Hero Squad figures have been released. The Avengers was supposed to include some new sets, but those never materialized so it’s been almost a year since I last got my hands on any new figures! But after the line got unofficially canceled, I can’t say I’m surprised. Kind of like how I’m not surprised that Hasbro used this as excuse to just release the same figures in this three pack.

Marvel Minimates Review: Unmasked Spider-Man & Green Goblin

without comments

I feel like I should love Minimates more than I already do. They combine two of my favorite things: tiny toys and LEGO-compatibility. But for some reason, I never got the Minimates bug in quite the same way. Either way, when I see a little Green Goblin for sale I tend to buy him. Read the rest of this entry »

Marvel Super Hero Adventures Playskool Heroes Review: Spider-Man & Green Goblin

with 2 comments

It’s not easy for any collector when a toy line ends. Years ago, I devoured all of the Ninja Turtles toys I could get my hands on when the new cartoon debuted, and then I began viciously collecting Marvel Legends up until Hasbro took over. That was eventually replaced by my love of the Super Hero Squad and its kin the Galactic Heroes, Robot Heroes, Combat Heroes and Adventure Heroes. But for some reason, Hasbro recently decided to break my heart and effectively ended the entire Hasbro Heroes group for these. Read the rest of this entry »

Marvel Super Hero Squad Review: Iron Patriot & War Machine

without comments

Just like the Thor and Spider-Man pack, this set is simply two repaints tossed together, but unlike that set; both of these figures are fantastic. But toy manufacturers must love Iron Man and War Machine because those two can be any colors and still work. Read the rest of this entry »

Marvel Mega Bloks Micro Action Review: Green Goblin

without comments

If there is one figure I will recklessly buy (besides Harley Quinn), it’s got to be the classic – Green Goblin! I’ve always been a fan of the crazy business man, so when Mega Bloks showed off his terrifying, grinning visage on the blind bagged; I knew I had to have him. Read the rest of this entry »

Spider-Man & Friends Review: Lil’ Green Goblin

without comments

I don’t know how many toy collectors can claim this but: I blame yo go re for my Super Hero Squad obsession. For years, I happily collected Ninja Turtles and the occasional Marvel Legend figure but then I read a single review. Toss in the fact that I had a $50 gift card to Target at the time as well, and the rest is history.

A scientific genius who’s as smart as he is strong, crafty Green Goblin calls on both of his amazing abilities whenever he needs them. Unafraid of injury thanks to his super quick ability to heal, Green Goblin isn’t afraid of a bit of reckless showing-off. In fact, it’s not uncommon to find Green Goblin using his one-of-a-kind glider to swoop into situations simply to stir up a little trouble!

Review: Marvel Universe Handful of Heroes 8-Pack

without comments

Small plastic figures have been a staple in the toy world for decades. Army Men were always the gold standard – cheap, bountiful and always ready to be sacrificed to the name of entertainment. But being from the generation that grew up on M.U.S.C.L.E. Men and Monster in My Pocket, I figured what’s the worse that could happen with these little Marvel Handful of Heroes.

Marvel Super Hero Squad Review: Black Costume Spider-Man & Green Goblin

without comments

He’s finally arrived! After four years of waiting and waiting for a comic accurate Green Goblin to show up in the Super Hero Squad, Hasbro finally released him stateside. Sure, some of the more crazy collectors (myself included) imported the Spider-Man Saves the Day set to get Norman Osborn and Mary Jane, but now he’s here! Read the rest of this entry »

Super Hero Squad Review: Green Goblin IV & Spider-Man

with 2 comments

In the grand scheme of things, Spider-Man’s rogue gallery is oddly represented in the Super Hero Squad. His movie line released a handful of villains but most of them in their movie costumes or weirdly modern ones. But after the line’s cancellation, Spidey and friends got thrown into the Super Hero Squad – of course Spider-Man tended to show up far more than his supporting characters.

Super Hero Squad Review: Spider-Man Saves the Day

without comments

When I first got Secret Wars and Secret Invasion Super Hero Squad 4-packs, I was really excited. But the whole time I had them, something was bugging me: the continual fact that the unreleased wave before those had continued to elude me. So for my birthday I bought myself the Winter Soldier Saga and this pack, Spider-Man Saves the Day. Now only Kraven continues to be out of my grasp.
