No Banner, only HULK. I am a big Hulk guy, so whenever MCU Hulkeses drop I try to pick them up. I’ve been eyeing Mezco’s One:12 Hulk since they first revealed it back in July of 2017. It was a way to get an upper tier version of the big guy on the shelf that at the time, hadn’t been done properly before. Fast forward a year and a half, things have changed out in the 1/12 scale universe. But, I kept my pre-orders in because it is still a sharp piece and I wanted to see how Mezco handled things. He comes packed with a helmeted and un-helmeted head sculpt, axe, hammer, 3 sets of hands and a display base with the Ragnarok logo on it. Soft goods are minimal, with sculpted forearm, hand and sandal parts mixed with faux leather and rubber fight gear on the chest arms and legs. We’ve run him through the motions, read on to check out some additional thoughts and over 50 HD images after the break courtesy of Entertainment Earth!
It’s catch up photo gallery time with this latest photo shoot. The Call of Duty 6″ Scale Figures have been in stores for a while now, and I’ve had the first wave in hand for a bit. I haven’t been able to get to these figures as quickly as I would have liked, thanks to a backlog of new items at the end of 2018 and early 2019. But, I’m happy to share a photo shoot and quick review of the McFarlane Toys – Call of Duty Series 1 Figures.
These 6″ scale figures are in stores now, with a few variants available as store exclusives. they retail for about $18 to $20 each depending on the store. McFarlane Toys sent along the wave for us to check out. Read on for my thoughts on the figures and a full photo gallery.
Mezco‘s horror themed One:12 Collective line gets a little extra groovy with the release of the Evil Dead 2 – Ash Williams One:12 Collective Figure. Hitting stores late last Fall, the 1/12 scale Ash figure is packed with movie themed accessories. Some of those pieces include swap out hands, a chainsaw, a boom stick, a severed Deadite Henrietta head and more. We grabbed the figure from Toyark sponsor Entertainment Earth. After the jump, check out my photo gallery and thoughts on the release.

Kratos and Atreus have arrived! NECA sent through an early copy of the upcoming God of War (2018) 2 pack featuring the father and son duo from the game. Kratos is a remold of the original figure they put out last year and Atreus is all new. The both come packed with tons of extras in an awesome fold-open display box. Kratos comes with his Axe, Blades of Chaos, Upgraded Blades of Chaos with chains, an extra head featuring that awesome SCREAMING face, two flame effects for his hands, 1 flame effect for his blades, an ice effect for the axe, a knife, his shield in open and closed forms, open and closed fists. Atreus comes with his knife, bow, 5 arrows, hands for arrow holding and knife holding.
Noticeable differences between the first Kratos and this one include the Blades of Chaos forearm guards with chain wrap and Mimir’s head hanging off his back belt instead of the horn. This version of Kratos also features a less heavy paint application for his white skin, it has almost a pinkish undertone, but the sculpt shows much cleaner through it. Atreus is well done in regards to sculpt and paint head to toe.
This is a set I’ve been looking forward to since the original release, and especially since the game came out. The only thing that could have made it better was if it came with the boat :). We’ve run the pair through a session here, showing them off in standard and fancy style photos. Read on to check out over 120 images! These should be shipping to retailers soon (check our sponsors below), so get your pre-orders in!
Two classic NECA Predator Figures get upgraded to new Ultimate style bodies in this new 2-pack. The Bad Blood Predator vs Enforcer Predator Ultimate 7″ Scale Figure 2-Pack features two characters based on the Dark Horse Comics Predator series. One is a blood-thirsty monster, out to kill everyone it comes across, including other Predators. The other is sent to take down the crazed Yautja, leading to a battle where toy collectors can decide the outcome. The figures stand over 8″ tall and come loaded with plenty of accessories, weapons, and interchangeable parts.
Our friends at NECA provided us with a set to shoot. We have a full photo gallery and review. Read on to check them out.
The Tamashii Nations Pacific Rim line has run strong throughout 2018. The final release of the year was their Pacific Rim: Uprising – Hakuja SOFVI Spirits Vinyl Figure. The figure, the smallest of the Kaiju released in the SOFVI Spirits line, measures about 11″ head-to-tail. It’s scaled to work with the Robot Spirits Pacific Rim: Uprising figures. Bluefin sent the figure along, and we have a quick gallery and review for Hakuja.
The figure was released in Fall 2018, and is available via most online comic shops. It sells for about $39.99. Read on for our photo gallery and quick thoughts on Hakuja.
After a little hiatus for the New Year it’s time to get back into action with these galleries! Today we are taking a look at a figure that dropped late last year and is utter perfection in my opinion – S.H. Figuarts Hulk from Avengers Infinity War. Tamashii Nations first run at Hulk way back was very comic-booky. Their Ragnarok Hulk was great but the gear was molded in. Here, we get movie level head sculpts, proper color and a full range of articulation. I dare say it’s the best Hulk figure that’s dropped yet. Feels great in hand, construction and build quality are top notch. Paint head to toe is well applied. Bottom line, they SMASHED this out out the park.
Read on to check out our shots with him, over 50 in all, courtesy of Tamashii Nations and Bluefin Brands!

Our friends at Hiya Toys have sent along the new wave for an advanced look. After the jump, you can see a series o high resolution images and my thoughts on the figures.
Time for a quick look at the recently released S.H. Figuarts Bucky. This is the US version, paired up with the Tamashii Impact effect piece in one box. The Impact crater is an alternate color from single retail versions, giving us a desert clay tone. Bucky comes packed with two faces, 2 sets of hands, a gun and clip. His knife is removable on the leg as well. Paint is solid throughout, a nice muted set of colors and great weathering on the arm itself, giving it the metallic feel it deserves. The faces are digitally painted. They aren’t the best Bucky likeness on their own, but are solid human realistic faces. Harsh light is not his friend tho, it brings out a lot of shape to the face and when paired with the digital paint is unflattering. In normal room light, it’s generally fine.
Bottom line, he’s a solid 2nd row addition to a SHF MCU line up. Read on to check it out for yourself after the break courtesy of Tamashii Nations and Bluefin Brands!
Today we have a nice surprise photo gallery to share with our readers. Back in September, NECA revealed a Thermal Vision Fugitive Predator from The Predator (2018).

The figure is available exclusively at Target stores starting this week! The thermal Vision Predator figure will be priced at $26.99, and should begin showing up in the NECA section of your local Target before the end of the week (may vary store-to-store).
