Marvel Mega Bloks Series 2 Review: Loki

without comments

The final pairing in the Mega Bloks Marvel line are two classic brothers locked in an eternal battle – Thor and Loki! I’ve got to hand it to Mega Bloks for managing to include three great pairings of heroes and classic villains; it works so much better than the Spider-Man-centric first wave.

without comments

Marvel Mega Bloks Series 2 Review: Red Skull

without comments

With the second wave of the Marvel Mega Bloks blind bagged figures out in the wild, Mega Bloks went full swing to ensure this wave felt jam-packed with Avengers – both heroes and villains. Almost everyone got someone to face off against and Captain America goes perfectly with his arch-nemesis: the Red Skull! Read the rest of this entry »

Marvel Mega Bloks Series 2 Review: Captain America

without comments

Mega Bloks seems to be cranking out the last of their Marvel products since they lose the license next year.
