First Joe - Short Fuze

My first Joe. I wanted Stalker or Snake-Eyes. They didn't have them so I got the mortar soldier, Short Fuze. Why? Because my dad was a mortar soldier in the army. Glad I finally picked this guy up after so many years. No idea what I did with the original.

Marvel Legends Marvel Knights Daredevil Series

If you haven't watched the Netflix Daredevil Series, stop reading...stop everything you are doing, and watch Seasons 1 and 2. Seriously, like right now.

If you have already seen them, or even if you haven't, check out these new figures that come straight from the show.  There is Daredevil of course played by Charlie Cox, Punisher (played by Walking Dead's Jon Bernthal - Shane!!!), Elektra played by Elodie Young who also played Jinx in GI Joe: Retaliation, and Jessica Jones played by Krysten Ritter, who you may know as Jane from Breaking Bad . Along with them are updated Bullseye and Blade figures. Awesome! Awesome set. Well done Hasbro.

The Build-A-Figure is an awesome Man-Thing.

Hope Marvel makes a second and third series from the Netflix shows. We need a Foggy Nelson, a Wilson Fisk Kingpin, Stick, Hand Ninjas, Vanessa Marianna, Karen Page, Madame Gao, Nobu, and throw in a couple of Russian Mob thugs for good measure. Oh yeah, a plain clothes Matt Murdock and his original black costume would be awesome as well.

Cool symbols on the box tops.

Always loved the side box art on the latest Marvel Legends. Think a new artist is being used. These are in color instead of graywashed, and the artistic style seems different too. Awesome addition to the packaging.

Carbon Freeze Time

Used as many vintage figures as possible to put this Carbon Freeze Chamber scene together. Bespin doesn't get a lot of love. So this is my attempt to put Cloud City into the spotlight.
