Iron Man 3 Super Hero Squad Review: Armored Mission 6-Pack

Iron Man 3 Super Hero Squad Armored Mission 6-pack

Every time I think the Super Hero Squad line is finally dead, Hasbro throws out on more set to let it live on a little longer. It’s been going on for almost two years with the line coming up to breath in weird little ways. But out of the blue, this exclusive six-pack showed up on Target shelves without a single repack in it!

LEGO Iron Man Extremis Sea Port Battle

Like last time, this review may contain spoilers for Iron Man 3. Or comments that are completely wrong and out of place based solely on my own speculation. Either way, you’ve been warned. Read the rest of this entry »

LEGO Iron Man 3: Iron Man vs Mandarin

Iron Man 3 Super Hero Squad Review: Expo Air Assault

with 4 comments

Iron Man 3 Super Hero Squad Expo Air Assault

The first of the Iron Man 3 Super Hero Squad 3-packs covered the original Iron Man movie. The second pack covers Iron Man 2, but being a 3-pack means it suffers in a weird way. Or maybe I’m just annoyed we never got an armored Whiplash figure. Read the rest of this entry »

Iron Man 3 Super Hero Squad Review: Battle Vault

with one comment

Iron Man 3 Super Hero Squad Battle Vault

It’s sad to see how much the Super Hero Squad has dwindled. In the last two years, only a handful of three-packs have been released and the two-packs are non-existent. But when a new Marvel movie comes out, Hasbro dusts the line off for what I keep thinking is the last hurrah. With Iron Man 3 approaching, Hasbro has released two two-packs that aren’t based on that movie.

A lot has changed since Iron Man was first released. The movie was such a surprise hit that Hasbro didn’t even bother making movie-themed toys, they just made some multi-packs and then had to scramble. The Battle Vault harkens back to the first Iron Man movie and it just works – even if it is all repaints. Read the rest of this entry »

Avengers Super Hero Squad Review: Secret Invasion

with one comment

With a name like Secret Invasion, it’s hard not to be impressed with Hasbro’s commitment to nods at the comics in this toy line originally intended for three year olds. But nods to the comics have been a constant trend in this line. How else do you explain getting Captain America Punisher or a Secret Wars four-pack? Read the rest of this entry »

LEGO Marvel Super Heroes Review: Quinjet Aerial Battle #6869

without comments

The final Marvel LEGO set is the biggest one, but instead of being the Helicarrier or some cityscape for our heroes to destroy, it ends up being the classic Avengers vehicle- the Quinjet! Part of me is still in awe that we even HAVE LEGO Avengers. Read the rest of this entry »

LEGO Marvel Super Heroes Review: Loki’s Cosmic Cube Escape #6867

without comments

Next in the Avengers LEGO lineup includes the big bad and two heroes. I think the reason I like this so much is when you combine it with Captain America’s Avenging Cycle set, you end up with an evenly balanced battle!

Seize the stolen cosmic cube from Loki! Loki is escaping from S.H.I.E.L.D. headquarters with the powerful cosmic cube. If he succeeds, he could use it to wreak havoc on the world! Can Iron Man take to the skies in his amazing armored suit and chase down the speeding off-roader or will Loki escape with the cosmic cube? Read the rest of this entry »

Marvel Mega Bloks Series 2 Review: Iron Man Mark V

without comments

With the Marvel Mega Bloks figures being released, it’s quickly becoming apparent how many of the figures are just repaints of each other. Sure, when it comes to LEGO minifigures – they’re all repaints. Though at least for Iron Man, repaints make sense. 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 »
