Showcase: Walmart Exclusive Gigantic Battles Savage Frost Giant & Loki
The Walmart exclusives released back in 2009 and 2011 remain some of the hardest and most expensive items to obtain in the Marvel Universe toy line. Include the fact i’m based in the UK makes it twice as tough. I still have 3 to find/afford, but i’m a patient guy and I know they’ll turn up eventually; I can wait another 5 years right? The seller I grabbed these two from on ebay had all five for sale, but I couldn’t stretch to all of them, and he hasn’t listed the others since.
The Frost Giant and Loki set was the one I was after most, and is probably the most sought after of the five. Apart from all the detailed sculpting and paint washes (particularly on the Frost Giant), as I look at it now, this thing is just a gorgeous looking toy. Part of me wonders at how I would have felt seeing something like this in a toy store 30 years ago; still part of the reason I keep them in boxes to retain that fresh off the shelf feeling. It’s a modern toy, but captures both my nostalgia and what I had in my head as a child about what a toy should be like.
Loki is the same release from the Walmart Avengers 4 packs, in his retro costume on the slim male body mould from that time. I think the Frost Giant’s design is based on Olivier Coipel’s art work from the Michael J Straczynski run on Thor. Plus more great box art provided by Mike Deodato.

Showcase: SDCC 2009 Exclusive Captain America
Bought this from the same local buyer as the cap/Winter Soldier 2 pack for just below the average price this goes for on ebay, which is still quite low. This is probably the easiest SDCC exclusive to pick up to be honest and it won’t set you back. The variation on the Marvel Universe packaging and theme is obviously where the appeal is. In case it isn’t obvious from the image lets run past this! A vintage black and white captain America figure is encased in the usual bubble, but the art on the card and bubble itself has a frozen ice effect representing Cap’s freeze and subsequent defrosting into the modern world. Pretty cool. The usual shield/hammer logo usually found as part of the blister is replaced with an image of his shield. The figure is a reissue of the original Cap release from Series 1 (with different legs) and represented in very nicely done greyscale tones. He comes with a fury file included in with the figures from that time. Really nice piece.

Thanks to @mrdolo187 for the heads up on this one.
Images (multiple) of the Amazon exclusive Sinister Six pack. Looks like the figures are all on one piece of folded card. Despite the repackaged and lower quality figure offering this is no doubt a very appealing 'Toybiz style' set; the card backs are very cool! I'm expected to have to shell out a lot for this thing...

As a collector it's easy to get swept away with the constant desire for more plastic, to own the next/most recent item. Sometimes you just have to stop and appreciate what you have. Especially when you're broke... 😅

Room to display is limited these days so I have to keep rotating my shelves to keep it interesting; Quicksilver and Wonderman get a front spot this time around 💪🏻

Arrivals from ID Toys in today - feels like a while since I picked up new 3.75" Marvel figs. These sets are pretty nice, and very happy to finally have the Executioner! Not cheap but I can't say no to Thor stuff 👍🏻

Looking after the collection. Dust is a collectors worst enemy, unless you have everything cased up, it gets in everywhere!!

Comparison of the upcoming Executioner with the one from SDCC several years ago. Looks like Hasbro haven't made any changes, which is probably a good thing, sticking with the Hercules sculpt. Just some slight paint variation. 2nd image is of the unreleased team pack when Executioner was first showcased.

Found some decent images of the Marvel Legends 3.75" Thor 2 packs due for release at the end of August.
Swipe for more > > >
Held off on the other 2 packs because of the price but will probably pre order these.
Thor looks ok, but the Gladiator Hulk is looking really strong, nice removable helmet to! We finally get the Executioner teased a few years back, he looks pretty decent and also an updated Enchantress (sans torso poa); the head sculpt looks amazing, hopefully they won't screw up the paint apps on the face. Thoughts? 🤔

Showcase: Psylocke Series 4/005 (Wave 17)
The Psylocke figure has seen a recent spike in price thanks to X-Men ‘Apocalypse’ (🙄), but like the film iteration of Psylocke, the figure itself didn’t warrant the higher price in my opinion. When she was released, a lot of collectors felt she missed the mark slightly. At face value she’s in her Jim Lee costume so hits the right notes there, and she comes with her psychic knife (albeit oversized) as well so what’s the problem? It was probably a combination of the choice of female sculpt; she uses the older female sculpt where by this point X-23 had been released so the improved female body would have suited this character better, the sculpted hair (which is well done) goes for Psylocke’s more wavier look instead of the sleek straightness from the JL run. Maybe she just doesn’t capture the alluring deadliness of the character, but maybe an alluring 3.75” figure is asking too much? Probably. She also comes with her psychic sword as well which she started using at a later point in the comics. Artwork provided by Ed Mcguiness, and the collectible comic shot is of X-Men something or other...

Showcase: Dark Hawkeye Series 2/031 (Wave 11)
This was another figure late to my collection as it mostly seemed like a wasted slot in the wave at the time, and i’d say he was mainly produced to complete the Dark Avengers line up; great for those that wanted to do that, and it probably made sense for Hasbro to do this at the time. So Dark Hawkeye (Bullseye) is basically a slight update to the Hawkeye release for the Secret Wars comic pack – as far as I can tell it’s a new head sculpt to display Bullseye’s evil grin, left arm and some different paint apps. It’s a decent looking figure to be fair, and I always liked the medium build male type sculpt they used for him. He was released again in the Infinite Series, but just labelled as ‘Hawkeye’ at that point; presumably Hasbro felt they’d sell more if they dropped the ‘dark’. This version is more common obviously, but for completion purposes I waited for one on the original MU packaging to come up for a decent price. Plus you get a Mike Deodato image on there which is a bonus.

Showcase: Walmart Exclusive Gigantic Battles Skrull Giant Man VS Captain America
Let’s face it, Secret Invasion was not the best of events in terms of story telling, but Leinil Yu did draw some nice designs for the myriad of Super Skrulls unleashed on earth. Skrull Giant Man had the powers of, well, Giant Man (Maybe that’s all they had left); hence the reason for this over sized Skrull. The figure is well painted with wash over lays and the detail in the Skrull face is great. The Bucky Cap figure is unfortunately on one of the early body sculpts (Vison, Daredevil etc) so he looks a little stunted and oddly proportioned. The paint is good however, and the red, white and blue portions of his costume have a metallic finish. I think these two only had a very brief ‘battle’ in a Secret Invasion issue, but once again, Hasbro nailed it (at the time) with showcasing lesser known and one off obscure characters and bringing them to plastic form.
This set was one of the first three to be released in 2009, the other two were Goliath and Iron Man sets, with Goliath in two variant colours.
