Barbarian time!





She's almost like a 1/18 Battleground Teela, I just need to carefully add torso articulation.

WORT wort WORT




Ebay you champ, got this early mostly cause LOOK AT IT!

Good set, nice Ghost this year's model is bigger/better/etc but I still have a soft spot for 2014's ghost set. Might upgrade the new one with the older translucent cannons and power core.





Jul 'Mdama (or Jill ya'Mamma as I keep thinking, I haven't played Halo 4) is well made and the new Elite body is superb. Can't wait to get more and I really hope they do Elites in all flavors and eras, it's going to be easy money for Mega to make. Upgrades for the Brutes when?





 And some bonus dumb head swaps. I do adore these new figures.





Has science gone too far yes/no?

That feel when you get one of your holy grails.

Oh EBAY, sometimes you deliver in ways I would have never dreamed of...


The Marvel Legends SDCC exclusive Savage Lands Zabu from a box set that also contained Shanna the She-devil and Ka-Zar. Thankfully I was only after the cat so a loose sample off ebay saved me a heap of money that the box set usually goes for.


A minor retool from the Sigma 6 Adventure team tiger that came with an 8inch Recondo. Just the head and tail are changed the rest is the same as the tiger figure.


Articulation all up in this figure. Only the larger MotUC battle cat would have more than this. All limbs are universal joints. Torso has up and down but no side to side (it's only flaw).




It can work for smaller figures by being monstrous. However he'd probably work well with upcoming Funko Legacy Skyrim figures (aesthetics be damned). Enjoy.

Rubber Dingy Rapids Bro

So I mixed up some AC parts with CoD parts and this happened, can't take credit for the head gear, a clever anonymous poster on /toy/ came up with that.

Raise the Black Flag

This goody arrived for me today from Amazon. Comes in the standard 5-figure box that we've been seeing with the Call of Duty sets (and I assume the Halo Spartan Fire teams 5-packs). 


There isn't much to this set, as it's mainly a way to get 5 extremely well made figures with a small taste of the environment you'd find them in. You get 3 non-specific sailors/ruffians in 3 different skin tones, two with hair and one without. 





This guy is who I'd assume is the leader of the bunch, wearing a Tricorn hat and a swanky armless jacket that just slides over the head like CoD vest and WoW armour, fits snugly. The Hat like the hair uses a round 3mm peg that slots into a compatible square shaped cavity on the top of the skull. 


He may not even be a Captain but he's distinct enough to be a V.I.P/Target for the Assassin. 





Finally we have the Assassin, a nameless member of the Brotherhood. The lower robe section is made from this soft, rubbery piece like the sashes. It allows for unrestricted leg movement as well as making it extremely durable to play. He also has a hidden blade for his left arm for stabby-stabby. 
The figures are all using the same torso, crotch, upper and lower leg sculpts along with the upper arms. The Lower arms have 3 types, regular sleeves on the green arms and the Assassin's right sleeve. While the Cream and blue/grey sleeves have fancier cuffs and the Assassin's left arm is a bracer for the Hidden blade attachment. 


You'll be buying this for the figures who could be the crew for the Gunboat set for the figures in that set to capture. The modular nature of these figures also allows for you to mix and match with any other Assassin's Creed Mega Blok figures and create your own characters. The Brick quality is excellent and I cannot praise the figures enough.

I don't know what to rate it, but I recommend it. 




Bonus: 
An AC head and hood on a CoD body, potential huh?

I would have been your daddy...



Brick time, this time it's Halo. They gave the figures new articulation this half of the year, well so far just the UNSC and human figures (Spartans, Marines and the New Mombassa Police) and they'll no doubt give it to the various Covenant species as the years go by (The new Prophet figure has it already).

So I bought and built my first Warthog and a few smaller sets and it was excellent. Usually I'd by the odd Blind bag figrue for fun, now I'm totally looking at the sets proper.





 Glad to see some NMPD love as ODST was probably my overall favouite of the series so far (Haven't played HALO 4 btw) I'm rather find of the series. The Brutes and Elites could stand to be larger though, but I have a plan for that...



Now the Elite figures are fun, gave the Pale Zealot figures that came with the Ghosts (Great little vehicle to build btw) a paint wash to get into all those tiny details. Gave the Brutes (Reach Era) some grey paint wash on the fur/skin, I still hope they make the Halo3 era Minor and Major as they've got the Chieftain, Jumpack and Stalker variants done.


 I wish the Jackal had a bigger shield, but apart from that he's a fun little figure, I'll try and hunt down some classic Jackals and hopefully some Skirmishers which haven't seen such a wide release.


Now the Marines are terrific and the same with the ODST figures (Finally the Rookie). A big surprise this year was the NMPD subline, poor police wont hold up to much Alien invasion though.


They also have a store exclusive subline that I can't remember for which one, since I import. Anyway It's the Infection game type so yay for Glow in the dark armor and ORANGE. Good stuff Mega Bloks you had me with the CoD now I'm sticking around for Halo and the Assassin's Creed lines. It's not like I wanted to save money.


The grand experiment:
