Marvel Universe and Power Lords

Another Marvel Universe action figure we got was Multiple Man. Its a cool figure for a character we weren't familiar with. Not surprisingly now Isaac wants more Multiple Man!!

James Arthur "Jamie" Madrox, also called the Multiple Man, is associated with the X-Men. Created by writer Len Wein with script from Chris Claremont and art by John Buscema, he first appeared in Giant-Size Fantastic Four #4 (February 1975). A mutant with the ability to create instant duplicates or "dupes" of himself.

One of the coolest action figures collection of the 1980s is coming back… Power Lords! Sadly there aren't that many informations available yet but it looks like we will learn more on December 21st, 2012.

The original figures were based on designs by Wayne Barlowe, the famous sf/fantasy artist and designer whose work was the basis for the Power Lords. While the toy line wasn’t successful, it managed to have a two waves of toys, a three-issue miniseries from DC Comics, a videogame for the Odyssey system, a board game and a coloring book. They were produced by Revell, a company mostly known for model kits; these was one of their first and only ventures into toy-making.

Here's a look at the classic original series!
