I told you which POP! vinyl figures I thought were the best of 2013. Now, lets have a look at what I would like to see in the year ahead. It was not easy to put this list together as there are so many different series and Funko is doing an amazing job covering “pop” culture. MY only problem? I have no more room for all the lines I collect as it is, LOL. BUT if I seen these I the shelves, I would make room. Let’s have a look at ten characters I would like to see:
I posted this one Deviantart and wanted to post it here are as well. I am looking for an artist. I have an upcoming project that I am working on and I need a "cartoony" superhero figure design. Something along the lines DC Animated and Superhero Squad style. If you have something you want me to see contact me via Deviantart, here.
Usually, I'm grateful to get any new Super Hero Squad figures. In the last couple of years it seems like Hasbro has abandoned the line. Since they stopped releasing two-packs, we have been given movie-centric waves that have consisted mostly of repaints. Thor, Captain America, The Avengers and Amazing Spider-man resulted in only a handful of new sculpts However, at least there were new sculpts.
I saw two Iron Man 3 SHS sets at Target and at first I was ready to pick them up straight away. That is, until I actually took a good look at what was being offered...all repaints. One set consisted of Iron Man Mark V, War Machine and Hammer Drone while the other featured Iron Man Mark III, Iron Man Mark I and Iron Monger.
These are great if you missed them when they were initially released, but for an avid collector, it is somewhat disappointing. Especially with all the new armor that is seen in Iron Man 3's promo.
Hopefully, we have not seen the last of new Super Hero Squad figures.
As promised here is another one of my Super Hero Squad reviews. Last week I reviewed Iron Man 2 - Armor Wars Part 1, this week I'll have a look at the Iron Man 2 - Iron Defense Squad set.
This week, I am reviewing another Super Hero Squad box set. SHS are little figures that stylistically represent characters from the Marvel Universe. Recently, three sets were released as part of The Avengers series. It says "Comic Series" on the box, but the graphics and logo are reminiscent of the recent movie. Maybe because some of the figures used have been repaints from comic book based series in years past. This "Secret Invasion” contains a new Nick Fury and has a Skrull Warrior and Iron Man that we have seen before, albeit these have new paint apps.
I think it's time for another one of my Superhero Squad Reviews! This week I take a look at one of the three newly released set of action figures based on Marvel's smash hit superhero movie, The Avengers - Attack Of Loki.
