Description: "Driven to desperation by the impending death of his adoptive father, Johnny Blaze made a deal he would regret forever. His father was miraculously cured of cancer, only to die in a fiery wreck, and Johnny Blaze became the GHOST RIDER. Barely in control of the demonic power that coursed through him, he hunted evil men across the country. Whenever he could, he turned his powers to the greater good, but he never forgot that his fate was sealed."
This figure includes a display base, a plastic bendable chain, and a small folder including papers the size of playing cards. It is labeled "Top Secret." The Ghost Rider figure uses the body mold of the Marvel Universe AIM Soldier.
In the Marvel Universe, Ghost Rider is Johnny Blaze, a stuntman whose adoptive father had cancer. The demon Mephisto made an unfair deal with Johnny: Johnny would become Mephisto's Ghost Rider, who could be called upon whenever he was needed, and in return Mephisto would cure the adoptive father's cancer. However, after the adoptive father's cancer was cured, he died in a motorcycle accident. Johnny Blaze still became the Ghost Rider, and was bonded to the demon Zarathos. There were two feature films focusing on Ghost Rider starring Eva Mendes and Nicholas Cage. The sequel was titled, "Ghost Rider: The Spirit of Vengeance." Ghost Rider has the power to shoot Hellfire from any part of his body and his motorcycle would become a gigantic flaming one. He could use a flaming chain as well to fight his enemies, and if someone looked into his eyes he could use a "Penance Stare" to inflict the same mental pain on them as they inflicted on others.
This is such a great figure and it's surprisingly easy to find so, if you collect Marvel Universe figures or want to start collecting, there's no reason to pass it up.
This Ghost Rider's mold was so good that it has been reused over and over again in the Marvel Universe line. That's because 1) there's a great amount of articulation on it (waist swivel!), 2) there are a lot of characters with costumes that can be modified from it, and 3) there are so many creases, folds, and little details on the figure that it's just fantastic.
Ghost Rider himself has a great clear fiery head, with a creepy smiling skull that really captures the nature of his demonic stare. You can see the orange hughes in his eye sockets, simulating the flames within. Ponies with rainbow wings can also be seen if you...[See More]
