A boy and dad passion for action figures.

Monday, August 1, 2011


As a late teen one of my favorite comic book series was Marvel's The Infinity Gauntlet. It was a six-issue comic book limited series published by Marvel Comics from July to December in 1991. The series was written by Jim Starlin and penciled by George Pérez and Ron Lim.

The storyline follows events involving the character Thanos, a mad cosmic tyrant bent on slaying half of all sentiences existing then in Marvel's multiverse in order to appease the Marvel Universe's actual embodied personification of Death in an attempt to win its love.

I've always loved Thanos...

Fast forward to now.... Isaac is a big time Marvel universe fan! He even told me recently that this was his favorite collection of action figures! A friend from work had told me that he had a Thanos figure for sale. Without hesitating I got it for Isaac... and myself.

Released in 2005 by Toy Biz, this gigantic Thanos figures  is one of the best sculpted and designed ever! Nearly 9-inch-tall even has a removable right hand that features the infamous gauntlet. Its fully articulated and rather scary! Plus it comes with his love, Death.
