WM Brand WM366: MCU Iron Spider aka Spider-Man Infinity War Minifig Preview

If you weren't happy with the previous two POGO releases, maybe WM will be good for you!


So far I'm digging this look more than the other two as seen in my review here.

Hopefully AngeloMarcus Greenhills gets some stock of these as well so I can compare all three!

Thanks to Ian for the heads up!

POGO PG305, PG350: MCU Iron Spider aka Infinity War Spider-Man Minifigs Comparison Review

Had to make do with my even older Nexus 5 [which has a not so good camera].

Click them links to see which sets they come from. 

In terms of plastic quality, both are good. Not as good as XINH, but better than usual POGO. In terms of printing, I think PG305 does it better, but maybe because it seems to have less thin design elements.

Side prints.

I don't really prefer any of them in terms of the back printing. PG305 has the same front and back print. PG350 seems dull because of the mostly red design. It's all up to preference now. 

The reason for the weird back prints is probably because we never got a look at the back print anyway.
Spider-Man Homecoming (Marvel Studios/Sony Pictures)
We never really got a clear full body look at this Spider-Man; all we have is this, as far as I know.

Good job though for POGO for doing both of these designs, because both are different enough anyway. Great job too to whoever were the designers of these figs because they were able to make interesting designs despite limited source pictures! 

I foresee seeing more of these variants soon especially with Infinity War showing soon. WM is actually also gonne be releasing one as far as I know. For now, AngeloMarcus Greenhills has these two for sale, only time will tell if AngeloMarcus Greenhills will have the WM one in stock too

So about the figs again, I recommend just getting both especially since they're not expensive anyway. If you really want a more accurate look though, then maybe your best bet is to wait for the Infinity War movie and for TLG to make their own IW Spider-Man.

WM Brand WM339: Val-Zod Superman Minifig Review

First previewed here!


EVEN THE PREVIEW PICTURE HAS CROOKED EYE-MOUTH ALIGNMENT!
Well other than the bad face, everything's fine.


Side print.


Back view.


At least the alternate face is alright! Yay!

Alright job by WM. Hoping to see more from them and more improvements too!

The face was really just disappointing because I wanted to use it for my Blade MOC..It's funny though that I didn't even notice it even though AngeloMarcus Greenhills had it on display.. Haha

POGO PG351: Deadpool in Pajamas (After Credits Deadpool) Minifig Review


I think it's just an average minifig. The plastic quality could do much better. Printing is good though in my opinion!

At least the face is new, right? A new Deadpool expression to add to our collections!

I'm glad they gave the swords even though the one in the movie didn't have [during his scene].
Back view.

For reference:

Did POGO get it right?

Generally an okay minifig. Deadpool fans will appreciate the fig, but not too sure about the others. 
Personally I love it because I love my Deadpool Corps collection haha (aka any Deadpool variant).

Of course, I got the fig from AngeloMarcus Greenhills but what I really want the store to have now are the Kopf Mercs for Money [mainly because they have a color that WM didn't].

DTB DTB053: Toni Ho (New Iron Patriot) Minifig MOC

An interesting character! Hoping to see more of the Avengers Idea Mechanics and/or US Avengers soo!

I don't have a Rescue Iron Man suit, so the best I could do was that one from the DLP set of Iron Men with no helmets. 

Head - Generic female

In the MR brand (not sure which brand tbh) hulkbuster! In the Iron Patriot variant obviously!

Some inspiration pictures:
Did I do good enough? Or could you do better? :D

POGO PG1089, PG1090: Alien Chestburster and Ripley Minifigs Preview

Alien fans will be happy. 
I mean, Alien-movie fans. Although if real aliens are reading, enjoy too! lol


PG1089 - Chestburster Minifig

PG1090 - Ripley

Please don't tell me these two's whole set will be a set with other, random, non-related characters..
The marines next please!

The Alien Xenomorph minifig was previewed here.
Although, the xenomorph is PG1050 so they aren't in the same set.. Hmmmm

Saw these guys in some Chinese website btw but I'm sure other English sites would have these and maybe even stores. I'll review them as soon as AngeloMarcus Greenhills gets them!

Also, kinda a PSA:
My phone is broken at the moment. I'm trying to fix it by flashing a new ROM but we'll see.
RIP LG G3, wish I could get an LG G6, but no money... Hahaha

Heima 6002: Marvel Superheroes Mini Mechs and Minifigs Preview

Was just interested because it's a new brand. (New to me at least)




Well Big Elephant started out as something like this, so I'm hopeful that this brand will expand and become better. I know nothing about the quality though.

DTB: Haul from AngeloMarcus Greenhills and Divisoria (October 22 and 23, 2017)

October 22 - AngeloMarcus Greenhills
October 23 - Divisoria

My AngeloMarcus Greenhills haul! Yes, they already released the recent Kopf superheroes set! I'll try to get the review out by tomorrow!

What I love about Kopf [and XINH]: extra hands!

How the figs are set up at AngeloMarcus Greenhills when they're newly released; people can easily see them and even feel them.

Now for my Divisoria haul, aka Chinatown. No sets today, just figs. 

Only two sets from the stores in Divisoria actually, the JLB ducks set and the SY Ducks and Mice set. Reviews within the week hopefully. Then the others are from other local collectors.

Finally my own Bleeding Edge! 
(I have the DLP one but it's not the DLP and is really leaning towards the MCU side)

I also got some ball joints for when I feel like making some MOC mechs! (And when I have time.. Haha)

Yesterday was alright, usualy heavy traffic when leaving the house to Greenhills. At least I can just sleep in the bus [or jeep, Philippines' mass public transportation]. Although today, at Divisoria, it was so tiring because it's far and required lots of walking and browsing different stores (because not all stores had good prices/the sets you'd want). Not a sign of POGO/XINH/other recent brand minifigs too, so I generally still prefer AngeloMarcus Greenhills because of convenience among other things.

Kopf KF377, KF964: Sally and Pennywise Minifigs Preview

Halloween vibes!

Pennywise looks much more creepy than that older Pennywise lol

Hoping Kopf doesn't stop their good-quality-streak!
