Thor

Weekly Wednesday Haul – Ragnarok & Roll Edition

I’ve had a real problem lately with Marvel Waves where one figure becomes impossible to find, which leads to being a bit conservative when picking up figures that I’m kind of on the fence over.  Like I’ve seen a lot of the Netflix Wave of Marvel Legends but still no Jessica Jones.  I’ll probably pass on several figures from the wave without JJ, since I wouldn’t be able to finish up Man-Thing without her.  The same happened with the Warlock wave, I am skipping Polaris and Sunfire unless I manage to find Cyclops.

The hard to find folks of the Thor Ragnarok wave seem to be Ares and to a lesser extend Hela.  I managed to find both locally as well as ordering Loki for less than retail off of Amazon.  This leaves me needing the new Thor and Odinson, both of which seem to be fairly common.  Loki has been sorely missing from my MCU line up, I never did get the original Avengers version, and he’s kind of mediocre anyway.  This Loki is a much better likeness, though his cape is a little iffy on staying in place.  Hela is interesting as well.

Ares is probably the winner of this wave though.  He’s huge and imposing and pretty bad ass.  Plus, you know, huge weapons, and a nice bonus, his helmet comes off, which I didn’t know going in.  I’m also really looking forward to completing the Gladiator Hulk BAF.

Weekly Wednesday Haul – All New All Different Edition

I’ve been eying the Avengers Marvel Legends boxed set at Toys R Us for a while but have been pretty reluctant to pull the trigger.  Mostly, I just care about the Kate Bishop Hawkeye.  The Falcon Cap would be a decent little bonus item, but the third figure int he set is a really ugly Vision, which I have zero care or interest in.  I already have 2 Vision figures due to other boxed sets and releases, which is at least one more than I care bout as it is.  Fortunately, the set got pretty cheap on Amazon, so now I’ve got my Kate Bishop.

These three figures are essentially part of the “All New All Different Avengers.  I’ve already picked up Kamela Khan and Miles Morales who are part of the headlines of this group, and I’ve also recently picked up Lady Thor, who is part of the Thor Ragnarok wave.

The Ragnarok wave is one of those rare waves of Marvel Legends where I actually want the Build a Figure and most of the wave.  I could do without Odinson, but I definitely want to pick up the other 5 figures in set and that Battle Armor Hulk BAF is really sweet looking.  So far I’ve only found this one Lady Thor though, and she fits in as part of the All New All Different avengers group.  I just need to get Kid Nova to complete the group, and I already was planning to get Kid Nova eventually anyway.
