Marvel Legends Lorna Dane - Polaris - Action Figure

Marvel Legends Lorna Dane - Polaris - Action Figure
The last true daughter of Magneto
The Marvel Legends Lorna Dane - Polaris - Action Figure is a marvelous representation of one of the X-Men's traditional 2nd tier characters.

And yes, we mean 2nd tier. The former love team (Wasp really did a number on the now disfigured Alex Summers) of Havok and Polaris has always been a poor copy of the love team of Cyclops and Jean Grey.

Personally, save for stint in X-Factor (The formerly Government run one, not the one formerly run by Serval Industries), we preferred her more as one of the X-Men's staunchest villains back when she was possessed by the Marauder Malice in the 80's.

Let's see how she stands on her own - especially since she's about to go toe-to-toe against her ex Havok in the X-Men Blue comic book.

Marvel Legends X-Men Series Sunfire Action Figure

Marvel Legends X-Men Series Sunfire Action Figure
I am the unquenchable fire!
Mavel Legend's Sunfire Action Figure is an excellent tribute to one of the less renown X-Men characters. 

Sunfire has a thing about teams in the sense that he's NOT a team player. He does however hold the distinction of being one of the only X-Men to also have been an Avenger having served - albeit briefly - in the Avengers Unity Squad alongside Havok, Rogue and Wolverine.

We remember years back when we were heavily into the Marvel RPG that we thought we figured out back then why Marvel kept Sunfire from joining the X-Men - he had the same Plasma Generation powers as Havok, and the same brash arrogance as Wolverine (Which is also probably why they killed off Thunderbird). Of course, today that oversimplification is a falsehood.

Still quite a waste. We think he would have made a great X-Man.

NECA Batman Arkham City Harley Quinn

NECA Batman Arkham City Harley Quinn Action Figure
"I promised you some entertainment, right, boys?" 
The NECA Batman Arkham City Harley Quinn is one of the coolest and hottest looking toys from the video game. 

We have mixed feelings about the Batman Arkham City game given that it ended with the death of the Joker - that's not a spoiler, if you don't know that you probably shouldn't be here.

Other than that it was a great game!

And we're quite partial to this particular outfit. Arkham Assylum game us Harley Quinn in a nurse outfit, which does satisfy certain fetishes we may have had, but in our opinion, this red and black punk rock outfit is more fitting for someone who would later command the remains of Joker's Clown Army.

Takara God Ginrai - Optimus Prime - Super Ginrai & Godbomber

Takara God Ginrai - Optimus Prime - Super Ginrai & Godbomber
God Ginrai - the product of the Takara LG-42 Godbomber upgrade - is the kind of upgrade that we’ve been waiting for, for a long, long, looong time.

And that's saying a lot.  If you go through this blog you'll find countless 3rd party upgrades. And we dare to state that, in terms of playability and sheer joy, the 3rd party upgrades have given us far, far more  happy-happy-joy-joy than their legit counterparts.

Then the LG-42 Godbomber came along. 

We're glad that the toymaking gods are finally listening to their worshipers.

Transformers Takara Titans Return God Ginrai Part 1: Godbomber

Transformers Takara LG42 Titans Return Godbomber
Godbomber doesn't talk
Takara's Titans Return Godbomber is one of THE nicest non-3rd party upgrades you'll find in the market today. A must have. 

To the uninitiated, this is the Transformers Godbomber. He is the result of the "Bomber Project" and was created by humans who worked in a British Motors factory in Canada.

God Bomber was meant as an enhancement for the Transtector Super Ginrai - Optimus Prime -that would further increase his power and allow him to fly - who was getting his butt handed to him by the two Transtectors that formed Overlord.

Godbomber gained sentience when he somehow heard "The cry" in Super Ginrai's heart. Before that he was pretty much a drone.
