Getting Crowded

November 25, 2007

The Icons are starting to add up


Marvel Legends Icons 3

September 11, 2007

Well after looking and looking I gave in, I paid more at a LCS. 

The Silver Surfer looks great in Icons form. 


While this Human Torch looks great i don’t know how well it will transfer in to 6 inch form. 


They both look great and have great pain jobs.  While the white color on the regular one does make the neck look longer. 

As with most Icons scales is an issue but they are still great sculpts of classic looks.  Overall they seem to be getting better as the line progresses. 

Rory has been busy

June 7, 2007

So after a hard day of sleeping in the Batman room of our house, Rory awakes to find my new fall free Icons set up.

She explores, plays and poses with the legends.  I really think she wants to take Doom’s place. 

Marvel Legends Icons Punisher

April 5, 2007

Next up is the New Punisher from the Marvel Legends Icon

The box is standard but really looks great on the shelves

Out of the box Frank looks old and beaten just how he should like he has been through Hell and back.  He comes with a knife, a hand gun and a larger gun. 


Next to Doom he is a little taller and next to Cap is just a little taller.  Overall a nice simple figure but i think one of the better ones made so far. 


HML 2 coming soon the Blob wave. 

Marvel Legends Icons Dr. Doom

April 4, 2007

Finally new Marvel Legends come to CT.

First off we have Dr. Doom

The Sculpt is great on this figure and the new Hasbro addition of cloth capes really sets this figure above the older Icons.

Here are some size comparisons to older and newer Icons


As Always Rory had to help

Come back tomorrow for a look at the Punisher.
