Strategic Long-Range Artillery Machine
Presenting the GI Joe SLAM or Strategic Long-Range Artillery Machine.

We first saw the SLAM in Marvel's G.I. Joe: A Real American Hero # 59 all the waaaaay back in 1987. The SLAM was a prototype artillery weapon that was being transported by the GI Joes through the mountains of Colorado. Cobra Commander was able to trace where they were going thanks to the Accounting wizardry of the bird-man Raptor. Cobra Commander then moved to attack the convoy - which included a HAVOC - in one of COBRA's most controversial vehicles ever, the COBRA POGO.

It was also known as the issue that highlighted a GI Joe favorite, their survival expert, Outback.

We don't remember much about the issue anymore save that it ended up in a tunnel with the POGO coming, head-to-head, against the GI Joe APC towing the SLAM.

Suffice to say both sides lived to fight another day.

Marvel Legends Female Loki

Marvel Legends Female Loki - A-Force SDCC set
"There are no men like me"
Somehow it is fitting that the Marvel Legends female version of the character the world is growing to love and hate at the same time - Loki, god of mischief - is very well made out of spare parts. 

This is the female Loki included in the Marvel Legends A-Force 2017 SDCC Exclusive box. To the uninitiated, following the events of Ragnarok in the comic books, Thor - thought dead - returns and rebuilds Asgard on Earth. Unlike the movie though he had to find all the reincarnated Asgardians, which in this case included a gender bent Loki.

Just like the movie version, the female Loki proved to be on no-one's side save his own, even joining the alliance of evil known as the Cabal. However towards the end of Norman Osborn's Dark Reign, Loki would stand and sacrifice his life in defense of Asagard. Her final words to Thor were "I'm sorry brother."

Proving in the end Loki was a hero at heart.

Marvel Universe Iron Man 2 Hulkbuster Quick Review

Marvel Universe Iron Man 2 Hulkbuster
Without a doubt one of the nicest, heaviest, and coolest Marvel Universe Figures to have been a part of the Dungeon.

This particular figure recently left the Dungeon, so we decided to give it one last look-over before it left.

This is the Marvel Iron Man 2 4" tall Hulkbuster. This is not the Hulkbuster from the Avengers: Age of Ultron movie. This armor is based upon artist Adi Granov's depiction of the Iron Man Model 32 Armor - to which there is some confusion given that it is also referred to as Model 31. The armor first made its appearance in Iron Man vol 4 # 7. Adi Granov changed gave the Model 32 it's distinctive triangle uni-beam.

The Model 32 or 31 is one of five armor made by Tony Stark collectively known as the Argonauts

Marvel Legends Netflix Elektra Action Figure

Marvel Legends Netflix Elektra Action Figure
Star-crossed lovers
The Marvel Legends Netflix Elektra Action Figure is a must have if you are a fan of the series - except for one major flaw. 

We always thought that Netflix's vision and execution of Elektra was pretty spot on - except for the fact that Elodie Yung is not Greek (At least she's Asian). Not that Elektra had to be Greek in the Netflix universe given that she was adopted. We felt that Elodie provided the perfect blend of mystery, sultriness and... chaos... that is at the essence of the character.

If we ever met her, yes we'd fall for her, but we know she'd be the death of us as well.

Star Wars Black Series Hera Syndulla Action Figure

Star Wars Black Series Hera Syndulla Action Figure
If all you do is fight for your own life, then your life is worth nothing.
The Star Wars Black Series Hera Syundulla Action Figure is without a doubt one of the most beautiful action figures we've seen in a while.

And a very, very VERY far cry from her bride-of-Kermit-the-Frog 3.75" version.

You can laugh at that travesty here.

As with the Mandalorian Sabine Wren, this is Captain of the Ghost Hera Syndulla, not yet Hera Syndulla from Season 3 of Rebels - given that she does not bear yet the accouterments of a Rebel Officer. However her blister pack does mark her as Captain of the Rebel Alliance so this is the Season 2 Hera Syndulla - but certainly not General Hera Syndulla from Rogue One.
