Friday Toy Shopping- Marvel Universe

I know I just went toy shopping, but I stopped by an out of the way Target after my workout this rainy Friday morning, and whaddaya know, they had replenished their Marvel Universe figures. I somewhat suspected this as I've heard reports across the country of stores pushing merchandise out of the warehouses & backrooms in preparation for the new 4th quarter stuff coming out. I lucked out, finding some Marvel Universe figures I've not seen in the wild.

*Marvel Universe Series 3 Dr. Strange
I have the clear variant, but wanted the this one as well. Very timely as I just finished reading Infinity Gauntlet. I really like this action figure! He's received a lot of good reviews, and I couldn't believe he was sitting there on the peg  :)

*Marvel Universe Series 3 Captain Marvel
I held off paying the scalpers on eBay for this one and my patience was rewarded with good fortune. I love Captain Marvel, and I've wanted this guy for awhile- Hooray!!

*Marvel Universe Series 1 Moon Knight
Another Marvel Universe I have wanted for awhile is Moon Knight. Released in 2009, I didn't think I'd be seeing him ever and they had TWO!  I didn't buy them both because I don't like scalping & some local kid might want one.

*Thor Movie Marvel's Hogun
I saw a couple other Thor  movie figures I had not seen, but only wanted Hogun. Still on the lookout for Volstagg, but finding Hogun was encouraging  :)

So there ya go:  Get out there & take another look if you get a chance- it seems like there's been some old stock dragged out, or someone got off their ass & put an order in  :D  I have a bunch of Marvel Universe stuff I haven't shown you 'cause I got sidetracked, but I'll get around to it eventually. I'm currently into the Marvel Masterworks:  Avengers, Vol. 1 & 2 which has been a lot of fun! Working all weekend AND playing an out of town show with my full-service rock band because I am an Unstoppable BadAss, but I still have more posts coming- Stay Tuned!

Have a Great Weekend!


  1. You found a Moon Knight!That's just nuts.This guy is way overpriced on ebay,nice to be able to find one for retail price!Captain Marvel is pretty awesome as well.Nice little MU trifecta!

  2. Awesome! I love my Doctor Strange and the same thing happened to me when i found mine too he was just sitting out on a front peg like he was put there for me.

  3. I still haven't seen anything past the first wave of Thor toys, so good on you for finding that!

  4. That Captain Marvel and Dr. Strange looks sooo sweet!!! I haven't seen new Marvel Universe stuff here for like half a year sucks!

  5. I've never really been a Dr. Strange fan, but I've been seeing a lot of cool figures of him lately. Great score.
