Marvel Mega Bloks Micro Action Review: Iron Man

with one comment

After the disappointment of the Halo Mega Bloks blind bagged figures, I was reluctant to try any more of their offerings but then Engineernerd brought it to my attention that there were Marvel ones being made! Then I ended up finding a full case of them at a Wal-Mart and dived right trying to find them all. Read the rest of this entry »

Avengers Super Hero Squad Review: War Mechs

with one comment

This three-pack makes absolutely no sense. It is three repaints; one of them is a new character who nobody has been clamoring for. But Iron Man seems to constantly be adding new things to his armory, but when the changes are so trivial it isn’t really worth it. Read the rest of this entry »

Marvel Super Hero Squad Review: Iron Man & Tiger Shark

without comments

One big thing doesn’t make any sense about this pack: the pairing. I have no idea why Iron Man with a removable helmet would be battling a shark man who lives underwater. Makes the fight seem kind of one sided, doesn’t it? Read the rest of this entry »

Marvel Super Hero Squad Review: Iron Man & Red Hulk

without comments

Part of me hopes someone at Hasbro reads this. Part of me hopes someone there doesn’t because I am enraged. And not just because this pack is simply two repaints. Read the rest of this entry »

Super Hero Squad Review: Avengers Attack 7-Pack

with 2 comments

While the second of the Super Hero Squad 7-packs doesn’t feature any brand new sculpts, it definitely fills a hole or two in most people’s collections by bringing together a fantastic New Avengers team up and three who haven’t been seen in a long, long time.

Devious plotting is revealed as the Avengers strike at the heart of the base where the Leader hides. The evil super genius has recruited a number of dangerous villains to his cause. Crossbones is more than happy to test his skills against Captain America and Wolverine, while Red She-Hulk battles Spider-Man and Iron Man! Read the rest of this entry »

Super Hero Squad Review: Defeat of Dr. Doom 7-Pack

without comments

With the end of Galactic Heroes getting announced at the New York Toy Fair, many collectors in the Super Hero Squad community began getting worried. Especially when it was announced that the two-packs were being phased out in favor for the movie line three-packs, then out of the blue – this appeared at Toys “R” Us!

Dr. Doom teams up with a former minion to take out the heroes that continue to stand in his way. The heroes nearly fall victim to the superheated assault of Volcana, but it takes more than a little hot lava to keep a hero down. They fight back, and even the combined might of Dr. Doom and Volcana can’t stand under the onslaught!

Super Hero Squad Review: Crusaders of the Cosmos

without comments

The latest Super Hero Squad Playset has finally been spotted in retail after a year and a day since I found the last one. We’ve seen a city, we’ve seen a castle and we’ve seen the Danger Room – but there’s still one place we haven’t gone: space! And of course, Iron Man wants to come along there too.

Super Hero Squad Review: Iron Man & Spider-Woman

without comments

As the Super Hero Squad continued, some of the older figures really began showing their age. Original Thor looked a little too much like the Pillsbury Doughboy for my taste and Spider-Woman was lacking something. Of course, any time Hasbro admits to a mistake and calls for a do-over, they make sure the cushion the blow by including a repaint. How kind of them. Read the rest of this entry »

Marvel Super Hero Squad Review: Iron Man 2020 & Deathlok

without comments

For every uninspired two-pack in the Super Hero Squad, Hasbro occasionally throws a major curveball that doesn’t include just one head-turning selection – but two! When you’ve got a toy line designed for three year-olds and both figures in the pack haven’t been relevant in almost two decades, you’ve got to wonder who this pack was made for.

Super Hero Squad Review: Thor & Thorbuster Iron Man

without comments

The more I think about, the more convinced I become that most of the issues the Avengers face are a result of their own in-fighting. But not all of them can be blamed. Sure, both sides may have been at fault with Civil War, but Iron Man seems oddly paranoid about his fellow heroes. He’s like the Batman of Marvel.
