My Inner ‘90s Teenage Self is Giddy...

Post by sanman »

Its been a long time since I’ve faithfully read a Marvel comic. However, back in the ‘90s Darkhawk was one of my favorite titles.

Anyway, it appears that Darkhawk will be a wave 4 Marvel Universe figure. I may have to get one of these.

I gave up on action figures a while back now, but I'd love to have that one, a Quasar and a Nova figure all in the same scale...

I know!

Its wild seeing the more obscure Marvel and DC characters becoming action figures. My LCS owner promised to hold a Dark Hawk for me thinking that the figure will be short packed.

I've never seen a Thanos either. All of my cosmic stuff has been packed away since the Marvel Legends stuff was around (along with the Marvel Select Thanos), so even if I found it I have no idea what I'd do with them.

Marvel Legends were too bulky and the joints at that size made them look awful at times, but the new Marvel Universe figures are what i always wanted.

I collect them all already and this will be a nice addition.

It's funny because the Legends figures actually got worse with the ball joints as time went on. It was hard to notice at the time because they were so popular, but looking back on them now, the first two waves or so were really the best sculpts.

The Modern Armor Iron Man is one of the worst when it comes to proportion and whatnot... ugh, I hate that figure.
