Playmation -MODOK

I've passed by Playmation figures dozens of times, admiring the sculpts but that's about it.They are more like statues and couldn't possibly blend in with my Marvel universe figures.Until i came across MODOK at an out of the way Wal Mart one day.Now this might work because MODOK  doesn't really need any articulation.He's pretty much just a talking torso that would be  displayed in the background with the rest of my Marvel Universe villains.I passed him up but recently stumbled across one on ebay selling for $ 5.00 ,free shipping.I pulled the trigger and I'm glad I did.

Marvel Universe - Black Knight

The Black Knight is finally off my "Avengers to get" list. Which leaves about 70 more to go.Seriously ,who wasn't ,at one time or another, an Avenger? Down below is my current,patched together,Avengers team.I would much rather have Vision in his original uniform and a Wonder Man that doesn't look like rock candy.But they'll just have to do.I think i'd rather have silver centurion Iron Man in there also  instead of the original .

Also,speaking of patching up teams, stay tuned as i have a couple of off brand (not Marvel Universe) villains on the way to add to my bad guys team.Hopefully they'll blend in well.

Spider-Man Fiercest Foes - Spider-Man (Night Mission)

A while back I picked up  a Spider-Man Lethal Foes battle glider figure ,not so much for the glider but more so to finally have a black suited Spider-Man figure In my collection. He wasn't exactly black ,though,even though that's what it said on the packaging.He was more of a metallic blue. It wasn't bad looking just not what I was looking for ,exactly.I did,however ,love the sculpt.After doing a little digging,I found out that there was another black suit Spider-Man in the Fiercest Foes line with that same sculpt!Since finding that out,It's been on my want list and a couple days ago  I was finally able to hunt one down for a decent price.

Mail Time!

Another Marvel Universe figure.Well,not exactly Marvel Universe but from a 3 3/4 line specific to this Marvel character.Hint:I already have this figure's variant.Can you guess who it is?

Star Wars The Force Awakens (so did I ,just now,coincidentally) - Snow Trooper

What a snazzy little figure!This is the figure  that came with the Star Wars -The Force Awakens snow speeder set I just reviewed.I was gonna save this for my 5 Points and Proud blog but I thought why not post It here.I get more traffic here at 2 Minute Toy Break anyways.But yeah,I like this figure.It's got limited articulation(5 points) ,like most of the Force Awakens line ,but look at all that detail.Hasbro did an amazing job with these figures and I'm soooo tempted to go after others In this line even though I know nothing at all about them .

It even came with a removable back pack.

You really can't tell the difference when displaying him next to the figures with more points of articulation.He looks great imo.I think he's still a little pissed at Doom for jacking his snow speeder but what the hell,according to Toy Box It was a deleted scene anyways and the vehicle never really showed up in the film ,so.

Doom's New Ride!

This couldn't have been a better fit.I know Doom has a jet pack and his doombots fly as well,but sometimes you gotta bring out the big guns.I picked up this Star Wars snow speeder on a hunch and it paid off.The cool thing about it lies in its simplicity.It doesn't  necessarily look like a snow themed vehicle at all.Its generic design makes it perfect for re purposing.Dr.Doom fits in the drivers seat nicely without his cape on and even though this is a two seater ,you have the option of standing the passenger figure up to man the gun turret.

                                      The ship gives off that Doom vibe ,doesn't it?

                                           Another cool feature  is the removeable turret.

I suppose you could make this a vessel for good if you chose too.Cap and the crew look cool in the cockpit but not nearly as cool as Doom does imo.

No fantasticar here.It only seats two and Thing did not agree with the passenger seat.Although,i bet someone could modify a couple of these to make it work.Well,what do you guys think?

Marvel Universe Gunship

I know what your thinking.That's Star Wars.Nope.This will be  re purposed  to be used as an armed  land speeder of sorts for my Marvel Universe figures.I figured ,It's generic looking enough to pass for it.I'm not sure If my MU figures will even fit inside  but i'm gonna give it a try.Results later on today :)
