Bluefin continues to expand its line of officially licensed Marvel inspired action figures with new Tamashii Nations Dr. Strange and Iron Man Hall of Armor Figure Sets
As a grown adult in his 20’s. You would think that I am too old to play with toys. In fact, think the same way. I, however, act in no such accord. I have spent a noteworthy amount of my budget on S.H. Figuarts. I’m a fan, what can I say. So I present this news, or copy and paste the press release, however you want to see it, with great pain and gusto. The gusto because, hell yes this is going on my mantle, the pain because I am no longer buying the collector’s edition of Injustice 2 and that one PS4 game with all the animals as robots. I equate the pain to sneezing unexpectedly. Anyway, CHECK OUT THESE AMAZING NEW TOYS FROM BLUEFIN!
The Hall of Armor set is something I really want for no reason. I keep my toys in the boxes, so if I get this that means I have to take it out of the box, and then what am I going to do with the boxes? I don’t know. The heart wants what it wants.
I’m less impressed by the Dr. Strange figure.The detail is amazing, and the likeness to Benedict Cumberbatch is uncanny, but at certain angles it looks like the head is too big for the figure. I’m up in the air about it. Here are some pics of the figures:
Anyway the Dr. Strange Figure will retail for about $84.99 and the Hall of Armor Set will retail for $119.99. Here’s the official press release below from Bluefin:
