Tough Guys

You're only getting one picture with this post, because in this case, one picture is enough. Man, this one turned out GOOD! The lighting, the positioning, the awesome sculpts...I think this is one of the best shots so far.

Wolverine is a Marvel Legends unmasked variant. This Cyclops figure is one of the better figures put out by Hasbro since they took over Marvel Legends from Toybiz. These are two of my favorite figures and are inspired by my favorite X-Men comic series of all time, "The Astonishing X-Men" issues 1-25.

Group photo! Everyone get in close!

So far I've mostly been focusing in single figures and then, mostly from the waste up. To break it up a bit (and to show off more of my collection) this post is all about the group shots!

First up is Tony Stark and the Iron Man Collection! I created this Tony figure using an extra Stark head and the body from a Harvey Dent Dark Knight movie figure. Behind him you can see a wide range of armor that represents nearly every era of the character. My favorite is probably the huge "Hulkbuster" armor in the back. You can see him peeking over Tony's left shoulder.

"In brightest day, In blackest night..." here come the Green Lanterns! I want to take a more definitive group photo of this collection, but for now this will have to do. You can see my GL Spidey is getting along well with the other Lanterns.

Lastly, these are my Marvel Heroes. The X-Men Variant Deadpool is front and center, with X-Men behind him on the left and Avengers behind him on the right. Since my figures are on glass shelves, I took a fun one from above as well.

Wolverine, Beastman, and ... Spidey in Eternia???

Here are a few more fun figure pics played around with in Photoshop and posted for your viewing pleasure.

First off is Wolverine, up close & personal. This figure is the unmasked variant Wolverine from the Marvel Legends line and it is possibly one of my favorite figures. The sculpt is a perfect likeness from my favorite X-men comic, Astonishing X-Men. Since Hasbro took over the Marvel brand from ToyBiz, they don't make 'em like this anymore, folks. Check out that detail! I'm sure I'll post more of this figure later on. He's the coolest.

Here is Beastman from the fantastic new Masters of the Universe Classics line from Mattel, available only from Mattel has taken the basic designs from the classic toy line and reimagined them all as better figures. I'll have a lot more pics from this line of figures, but Beastman gets the first post. Skeletor will be pleased...for once.

And here is...Spidey in Grayskull?!? I ended up with 2 Spideys that I couldn't decide between displaying with my collection at my office, so this guy hangs out in Castle Grayskull with my Masters collection.
