A boy and dad passion for action figures.

Wednesday, February 9, 2011


My son and I just went back to the local action figures store, Legends. We got lots of cool new figures...

First is the Lizard Spider-Man movie classic 2 action figure that features slashing tail smash attack! Its a beautifully designed and detailed figure.

The Lizard features a multi-jointed tail with tail-smash action, and comes with web-cuffs, web-muzzle, and peel-off sticker. The Lizard is hunched, green scales bursting through the rips and tears in his mutilated white lab coat. One of the cooler-looking interpretations of the character, he looks to be well-articulated. Suffering an amputated arm, Curt Connors devoted his scientific pursuits towards the creation of a limb-regenerating serum based upon reptilian DNA. Connors conceived the serum and self-tested it, and though the serum did regenerate the amputated arm, it simultaneously transformed Connors into a humanoid reptile creature. This monstrous alter ego, the Lizard, possessed heightened strength, durability, and reflexes, and an ability to mentally control reptilian life forms.

We also got the Sandman Smashing Sand Punch figure from the Spider-Man movie classic 1 collection. Its another very nice figure. You can press a lever for smashing sand punch! It comes with interchangeable hands.

A shapeshifter endowed through an accident with the ability to turn himself into sand, he eventually reformed, and became an ally of Spider-Man. The Sandman first appeared in The Amazing Spider-Man #4 (Sept. 1963), created by writer Stan Lee and artist Steve Ditko as an adversary of Spider-Man. The character returned in The Amazing Spider-Man #18 and #19, and was soon depicted in other comics, such as battling the Hulk and the Fantastic Four.
