Transformers Generations Combiner Wars Megatron

I've said before that 2015 was my Transformers year, but I'm always looking at what's out there, and had a few saved back from when I got into them, including this Generations Combiner Wars Megatron. This Leader Class Transformer in 9" tall, covered in beautiful silver paint, that turns into a huge tank with rolling rubber treads and missile firing turret! Check out the video:

Marvel Legends Avengers Endgame Black Widow, Hawkeye, & Ronin

I've had this Avenger Endgame Hawkeye/Black Widow 2-pk for a year now, but only ordered this Endgame Ronin from Amazon recently. I'd intended to buy him for awhile, but could see after several months that he would be available for awhile, and that his price would come down. Those factors combined with some points I'd earned saved me about 60%. I admire Marvel Studios' interpretation of the character, heavily inspired by the comics version. The detailed sculpt is fantastic, with a lot of great texture throughout.

The hood is removable for one option, and the Clint Barton head from the Hawkeye/Black Widow 2-pk fits on this figure- a fantastic bonus. Ronin came with two swords that sheathe onto his back, and an additional "throwing stars" left hand.

The Endgame Hawkeye/Black Widow 2-pk really excited me when it came out- yes, the outfits don't match the movie outfits, but they make quite the visually appealing pair nonetheless. I love the detailed sculpts with matching Avengers insignia on the breast, and the outstanding facial portraits of actors Scarlett Johansson and Jeremy Renner.

Hasbro including extra heads of other characters is a neat idea- the Ant-Man head looks fantastic on the Hawkeye body, and I was surprised how much I like the Nebula head on the Black Widow body. The pistol included in this set is the same included with the Guardians of the Galaxy Nebula, which had a slightly different head than this one, which spots a panel of copper/orange on the left side of her head.

Black Widow came with the same collapsible staff the the Infinity War Black Widow included...

Marvel Legends Black Widow Deadly Origin

I preordered this Marvel Legends Black Widow Deadly Origin from Target this winter, right after it was announced. I'm only starting to read Deadly Origin, so I don't have a great deal to offer regarding that story arc, but I would say it's turning out pretty interesting. I really enjoyed the 2016 Waid Samnee arc I read awhile back however, more so than what I've read of Deadly Origin thus far. Regardless, I loved this figure at first sight, and am even happier with her than I anticipated. She came armed to the teeth in one of the best looking Marvel Legends boxes I've seen- the panel featuring alternate cover art from the second issue of the original 2010 series , by Bosnian artist Adi Granov. Fantastic!
I was thoroughly impressed by the accessories included with Black Widow. including two unique pistols, a rifle, and both muzzle blasts and wisps of barrel smoke that universally fit all the weapons. Rarely do we get this many realistic weapons in one package, and I hope Hasbro continues to include weapons effects accessories. At the price of a regular Marvel Legends release, I found this a great value. There is a little gappage where her neckline meets her collar unfortunately, but it's a minor gripe considering an otherwise killer action figure...

Black Widow can hold her rifle pretty well, a trait that a lot of Marvel Legends often fail at. The muzzle blasts an barrel smoke blast accessories also fit the rifle, which comes with a functional shoulder strap- very cool! See my January post on the Marvel Legends Demogoblin Wave!

that came with a motorcycle, which the aforementioned looks fantastic on!

FEXT System Sci-Fi 03 Display Module

I bought this FEXT System Sci-Fi diorama off BigBadToyStore for more than I should have, but it was in stock and I paid with PayPal money I'd saved from selling off stuff in my own collection. Check out FEXT Hobby's website to see other sets they make. The set can be configured 10 different ways, several of which measuring 10.86 x 10.70 x 14.72", which fits in a standard detolf display cabinet- a great selling point for a lot of collectors, but not how I will utilize it.

I mainly bought this for use in photographing 6 and 7" figures, like all the Marvel Legends I'm behind on photographing. You'll be seeing a lot of this diorama in the background here at the Super-DuperToyBox in the future- be sure to check out my Instagram! Below are some shots of some of the Spider-Man figures I got in the Marvel Legends Demogoblin Wave...
