War Machine
Iron Man (Toy Biz) - Series 1
Rated 5.00 stars by necornaut
I got this guy earlier in the year and it's about time I do a review for the figure. War Machine in my opinion represents the best of what a 90's figure could be. Between articulation, accessories, sculpt, paint, and action feature war machine is the full package. We'll start on sculpt first, the figure it's self has a nice look to it without the armor added, he has full details on his face as well as his entire body that being said it's nice that the look of the figure doesn't interfere with his articulation. He has the basic 9 POA which is nice for back then. The figure is then added with armor and weapons, which can be switch, mixed, and matched with any of the iron man figures from this line. The armor is a more metallic color, which makes him stand out nicely among the duller figures...[See More]
Mr. Sinister (Goatee)
X-Men (Toy Biz) - Series 2
Rated 4.50 stars by necornaut
So I got this figure a while a go but now it's finally time to review this guy. Mr. Sinister has the basic points of articulation that you'd expect from the usual old 5inch lines. One thing that separates this guy in my opinion is that his action feature doesn't take away from this figure. Usually the action feature such as the x-force deadpool with the knife took away from the figure. His light up feature actually looks really nice, both on and off. His eyes and jewel light up on him, which at night or in the dark gives him a spooky appearance. The one thing that is also nice about this figure is the removable cape. The cape is just one solid piece of plastic molded to look like the strips that usually make up his cape in the comics. The paint apps on this figure though aren't the best,...[See More]

It did somewhat frustrate me that his head has no articulation due to the wiring, and that his shoulder pads interfere with his arm movement if his cape is on But overall one of my favorites from the classic Toybiz line as well.
Marvel Legends Showdown (Toy Biz) - Battle Booster Packs - Series 1
Rated 5.00 stars by necornaut
Usually I review the older toybiz figures but this series is something special. Superhero Showdown is what 1:18th inch scale super heroes should be but hasbro can't live up to the quality, that being said lets get down to business with this figure. The Punisher is a great figure to start your collection with period, what makes this one more compelling to purchase in comparison to it's Marvel Universe counterpart is the amount of articulation. It has as much articulation as it's marvel legends counterparts and the distribution of the body is great. Also it makes an excellent base figure for customs, and at a decent price too. The sculpted details on this figure are also a nice touch, especially the belt, boots, and gun. Sure the gun isn't removable but I really don't see that as too much...[See More]
Magneto (Super Spark Action)
X-Men (Toy Biz) - Series 2
Rated 5.00 stars by necornaut
The master of magnetism, Magneto, by far my favorite villain of all time due to his greatness (doom has nothing on him). The figure itself is nicely done, by far better than the first release, although some would disagree. I like the idea of the helmet staying on him and the fact that he has a plastic cape that is removable so you can do his super spark action. The figure itself has the basic articulation that you would find on most x-men figures that you would find of this time period. Everything is sculpted on nicely, and the action feature is hidden by his cape unless you wish to remove it then there is a lever in his back which you pull up and down to get out the super spark. The paint on this figure varies mine was a little sloppy on chest, making him look like he had super play wear...[See More]

Archangel (White Wings)
X-Men (Toy Biz) - Series 1
Rated 4.50 stars by necornaut
archangel, a mutant distorted and given metal wings to become of the horseman of death, that aside lets talk about the figure. I gave him a 4.5 because he's near perfect I wish I could go to the whole 4.75 but I mean that be nit picking. Anyway he's a good figure with a nice sculpt and fantastic wing style. I like the idea of having white wings because of the silver that they really are in the comics and how it looks really nice here, and they have the feature of flapping and you can kinda shoot a missile out of the top of them, not really necessary but still kinda cool. I want to talk about the sculpt of him next, I mean come on he is a top notch sculpting example with nice definition it definitely adds to the figure. It makes the figure feel better, I can't quite explain it but the...[See More]
X-Men (Toy Biz) - Series 1
Rated 5.00 stars by necornaut
Apocalypse, one of the baddest mutants of all time. I ranked him as a 5 because of his style resembling when he first appeared as a thinner taller mutant and later on he gets a bit more of a bulkier look. This one is a bit thinner but still yet looks as though he could kick some serious gluteus maximus. The figure itself comes with the ability to grow taller by extending the torso and the legs below the knee. It really doesn't make him that much taller, I mean he's a big guy so to begin with so no problem there. He comes with the usual tube-age coming out of the arms that you'd expect on an apocalypse figure. Overall sculpt on his is good, what you'd expect for the first apocalypse figure to come out, not super fantastic but good, the second edition really improved upon it making a more...[See More]
X-Men - X-Force (Toy Biz) - Series 3
Rated 5.00 stars by necornaut
I first read about this character sunspot in an late 80's early 90's issue of x-factor, it had cable, cannon ball, sunspot and they were rescuing some mutants from genosha. now enough of that lets get on with this figure, I had recently gotten him and I'm thinking this will be good for a new mutants or x-force, and it was. The figure itself is in good scale to the figures in the series and comes with 10 POA, I know what your thinking pfff only 10 points! but realize this that it was back in the 90's when this was made, and that was pretty good for back then, judging that the first cable release only had 7, or that sabretooth only had 4 not counting his mouth. So back to sunspot he is actually a really sweet figure, his look is close to the comics and he can stand up well with out help or...[See More]
Sabretooth (Snarl & Swipe Action)
X-Men (Toy Biz) - Series 5
Rated 4.50 stars by necornaut
This is the second sabretooth released for the X-men line, personally I like this version better. This figure comes with a snarl and swipe action that is fun, his mouth opens when you squeeze his legs, and his arms move a bit. The figure itself in articulation is lacking and only has 4 POA, because of the action feature. Although he's not the most positionable figure he is still worth at least checking out. The paint on this figure is good, and he was in his current costume at the time, the all over style of this figure is worth getting over the first release. Although this is not his last release of the sabretooth figures this one is in my opinion the best. His sculpt on the costume I really liked, between the muscles, the detail in the fur, or how his hands are positioned. Overall I'd...[See More]

X-Men - X-Force (Toy Biz) - Series 6
Rated 5.00 stars by necornaut
Another Deadpool, this figure I just got recently and I'm already loving it. I mainly collect the pre-legends so this figure was right up my alley. The figure itself is the second release of Deadpool, making various changes from the original including beefing up and more accessories with out the whole action feature. The figure itself is pretty massive in the muscle area like in the days of Ed McGuinness unlike the first released Rob Liefeld inspired figure, also he contains I think just one more point of articulation above the old one. I'll start out with the basics on this guy, first off his costume is great, I like the torn costume style because you can make him look like he's been in battle when put on display yet he's not so battle damaged that you can only display like that, also...[See More]
Darth Vader
Star Wars - Power of the Force II (Kenner) - Flashback Photos
Rated 5.00 stars by necornaut
Darth Vader, the second baddest person in the galaxy, between his constant love of strangling people and his deep commanding voice Vader is always a force to be reckoned with, this figure in my opinion was my favorite Vader from this line. He has the standard articulation that you'd expect from a SW figure, you can rotate his elbows to make him hold his light saber with with two hands. I don't remember but I'm pretty sure you can also move his wrists which to me was amazing. This Vader also came with a darker red light saber, which I like better than the some that were released with a light pinkish color light saber. The figure also comes with his cape which is nice and flexible and he stands very well, perfect for when you play escape the Death star board game, overall a fantastic early...[See More]
