She-Ra (Mattel 2010)

Merry Christmas, folks! I hope everybody is enjoying the craze like I do, even if I didn't get any toys this year. But my brother did (it's actually my twin brother). And it filled me with joy, as I saw him filled with joy, holding his brand new MotUC She-Ra in his hands yesterday evening. I guess this is what the Christmas spirit should feel like, right? Well, let's take a closer look at the character and latest She-Ra action figure from Mattel then.

Space Crusader / Cosmic Crusade Spider-Man (Hasbro 2011)

Christmas is near, so this is probably my last update before all hell breaks loose. While I'd been on the quest of finding the last christmas presents, I came across some nice looking Spider-Man action figures yesterday. Apparently, they're part of the Spider-Man series by Hasbro, started in 2010.

Since there's already an excellent review by Essex on the 'Super Poseable Spider-Man', which would have been my first pick, I want to share the 'Space Crusader Spider-Man' with you instead.

Action Man (Hasbro 199X)

Am Anfang war das Lot
Aufgrund ihrer Größe waren sie bereits von weitem kaum zu übersehen. Als ich näher kam, offenbarte sich mir das gesamte Ausmaß. Berliner Toy-Sammler wissen, wie schwer es mittlerweile ist, hiesigen Flohmärkten noch etwas brauchbares abzugewinnen. Umso überraschter war ich, nun auf ein gigantisches Action Man Lot gestoßen zu sein, wie ich es so zuvor noch nicht gesehen hatte.

Wie sich herausstellte, handelte es sich um sieben (extrem große) Umzugskartons mit einigen hundert Figuren, Fahrzeugen und Zubehör. Der Schatz musste gehoben werden - und zwar bis auf den letzten Stofffetzen!

Renegades Cobra Commander (Hasbro 2011)

I wasn't a huge fan of the GI Joe Renegades action figures in the first place. I don't like their anime/manga influenced style so much. Sure, this is exactly what's selling these days. But that doesn't necessarily mean that it fits within the main concept of GI Joe. (On the contrary.)

Well, I opened a Cobra Commander MoC yesterday for a more detailed examination. And I was surprised. Seeing him unsealed, the Renegades Commander is most definitely cooler than I thought.
