Marvel Mega Bloks Series 3 Review: Sandman

with one comment

The more I look at the Marvel Mega Bloks figures, the more I realize that only with certain kinds of figures do they really excel. Iron Man and the Purple Spartan are excellent toys, but whenever Mega Bloks needs to make just a person, they seem to fall short. Read the rest of this entry »

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.

Spider-Man Super Hero Squad Review: The Sand Pit Stand-Off

without comments

The last hurrah of the Spider-Man Super Hero Squad ended up being more of a whimper than a bang. As a line, it was really all over the place. Some of the two-packs were excellent, while others were lacking. The vehicles and playset were odd but the whole line didn’t meld together as well as it could have. So that leaves the last piece of the Spider-Man Super Hero Squad puzzle: the 5-pack.

The sensational Spider-Man is locked in battle with his most dangerous enemies ever! He leaps from construction crane to bulldozer, slinging webs like never before. Meanwhile, New Goblin zooms through the sky on his sky stick, hurling pumpkin bombs, even as Venom and Sandman fight tooth and claw to be the first to land a punch on the web slinger!

Spider-Man Super Hero Squad Review: Sandman & Venom

without comments

The final Spider-Man Super Hero Squad two-pack is based solely around Spider-Man 3 and has a single goal: rereleasing the movie’s villains. But instead of just repacking Sandman and Venom, both of these guys get brand new sculpts. Plus it’s great having Venom paired up with Sandman because Venom once bit a chunk out of Sandman that caused him to melt.

Spider-Man 3 Super Hero Squad Review: Sandman & Black Costume Spider-Man

without comments

When I first heard that Sandman was going to be one of the bad guys in Spider-Man 3, I was a little disappointed. After all, he is the guy that Spider-Man first beat by vacuuming him up. Then it was teased that Harry would become some sort of goblin. Finally, the whole black costume got leaked and the reveal that Venom was also in it suddenly made Sandman more interesting. In the comics, Venom ended up fighting with Sandman, took a bite out of him and that caused him to dissolve for a few years. So it could have been an interesting battle where Sandman has a change of heart and defends Spider-Man from Venom and ends up dying. Instead he flew away as a cloud of sand.
