Batroc

They made a 6"  figure of Batroc the Leaper with double jointed knees? Well, you know me. I'm a sucker for any toy of a French stereotype who is considered a credible threat to Captain America because of how hard he can jump on things.

BATROC!



Don't let them fool you by their claims that he is a threat because of his savate (french kickboxing) skills, Batroc's power is that he has really strong French legs that he can French kick or stomp you with.

Marvel super hero mashers

Well, if anything was going to get me into this line it would probably be a Beta Ray Bill figure.


An alien horse head you can put on other Marvel characters! But I resisted. For now.

Marvel figures

Wow. Why is Hawkeye so maniacally happy?


And I found both versions of Beast... but who really wants Gray Beast? Does that version of the character have a fan base?




Super Mario K'Nex wave 5

Maybe it's because I've started collecting Amiibos, or maybe it's because the whole wave is variants of already released figures, but when I saw the new wave of K'Nex Mario figures I realized I did not want a single one.

And I had a gift card, so I wouldn't have even needed to spend real money.

Payback Wolverine and Classic Sentinel


Payback Wolverine is from when he lost his healing powers and went to work for criminals. Or something like that. I dunno,  I wasn't reading X-men then. Anyway, Wolverine's dead for now so it's weird that there's merch from that period.

But hey, new Sentinel minimate! That's what I like.

Gorn

Found this dude at the Dollar Tree. I've been hovering around these Kre-o Star Trek single figures in the past but never felt that it was worth $3. But for $1? Sure.

The Gorn never appeared in the Star Trek movies, so I'm assuming this design is based on the horrible cgi version from the Entrrprise tv show.

I like the uniqueness of their legs and the ball jointed hips. Otherwise.... Meh. The tail piece prevents the torso from staying steady on its peg and the head looks nothing like the dinosaur lizard from the classic tv series.

Weird Al

Remember when we all thought that the Transformers Animated Wreck-Gar figure would be the closest we would ever get to a Weird Al Yankovic figure?

Well that's no longer the case. Continuing my pattern of only getting one figure per wave, it's the Weird Al figure of the Simpsons 25 greatest guest star line. I considered the Buzz Aldrin figure, but like every time, I decided that I couldn't justify paying for more than one figure so I had to go with the one I wanted most.
