I think everyone was pleasantly surprised with just hos enjoyable the Dr Strange movie was. I know I wasn’t expecting to enjoy it as much as I did! Seeing the merchandise dominate the retail space wasn’t completely unexpected though… and most of it was a pass for me. I did decide to purchase the classic looking metal figure – and as a founding member of the Defenders it makes sense in the Hulk room! So, bonus!
The one thing I noticed too is that it wasn’t riddled with holes like the Hulk figure is. Of course, I think they are just hidden behind the cape – but I have never wished the Hulk to don a cape until this moment! The only real missing piece is the details on the edge of the cape. I sort of wish it featured the yellow with squiggly pattern like it does in the comic.
I have to confess – I prefer the Dorbz figures over the Pop figures that everyone else seems to be going crazy over. I know that there is a Pop figure for… well, pretty much everything over the sun. Even Sixteen Candles. Who was looking for Sixteen Candles collectibles? Apparently, someone. I enjoy the Dorbz better – mainly because they remind me of the Mighty Muggs and they do not sport the bobblehead feature that the Pop figures do.
This is the XL Rocket Dorbz so it stands an impressive 6″ – just as a size comparison regular Dorbz are half that size. I only have a few Dorbz figures but I was able to snag this one for a song as it was being clearanced out at Barnes and Noble.
Nothing is cooler than when Lego creates a set that is out of this world – a set you’d never expect to see – and they did it this time when they released this gem. The Venom saga is one of the most enjoyable and crazy violent reads in the Marvel empire. Somewhere along the line Venom, while still bonded with Eddie Brock, sprouted multiple heads – and it was amazing – this set is too cool because it shows the symbiote sprouting 5 heads!
It also has a super creepy spider theme with it. It makes this figure a must have! It also comes with a Spider-Man figure – but who cares? Look at this freaking thing! The Venom figure that was released before had only a few tendrils that you could spin on it’s back. This set gives the real chaotic feel of what facing a symbiote must be like. I think these are still available at TRU – do yourself a favor and pick it up today! I have a feeling once this set is sold out you will have a hard time finding it!
