Capfellas



What can I say? I was feeling creatively inspired, so here's some
various Captain America captions dubbed over with quotes from my favorite movie of all-time, Goodfellas.

Enjoy.....













I could do more, and I might at a later time, but these should suffice for now.

My Top 10: Marvel Legends figures of 2018



What's up people?

As the title says I'll be presenting my list of the Top 10 Marvel Legends figures of 2018. The only strict requirements I've set for myself is that the figures chosen have to have come out this year and they have to be figures I currently own.


You know what? Fuck that.

Since I haven't bought a lot of figures this year, I might as well showcase all the figures I did happen to buy.  I mean shit, why not? It's not a lot people, I promise.

Here we go.....



  •  Thanos (Walmart Exclusive) 


























  •  The Taskmaster (Avengers Obsidian Cull BAF Wave)


 


  •  Gwenpool (Spider-Man Lizard BAF Wave)





  •  Cable (Deadpool Sasquatch BAF Wave)




  • The Multiple Man (X-men Apocalypse BAF Wave)















  • The Prowler (Spider-Man Lizard BAF Wave)

























  •  The Black Knight (Avengers Cull Obsidian BAF Wave)
 


  • Gladiator (X-Men Apocalypse BAF Wave)






































  • Magneto (X-Men Apocalypse BAF Wave)






































  • Sabertooth (X-Men Apocalypse BAF Wave)

  • Storm (X-Men Apocalypse BAF Wave)



  • Psylocke (X-Men Apocalypse BAF Wave)





  • Magick (Walgreens Exclusive)



  •  Venom (Venom BAF Wave)




  • Dr. Octopus (Spider-Man 




  •  The Thing (Walgreens Exclusive)

 


  •  Mr. Fantastic (Walgreens Exclusive)



And that's pretty much it for 2018. I really don't see me making anymore future ML purchases this month, thus why I'll officially end the list here.

I'll still buy more 2018 figures, just not right now.

As you can see this year, more than any other, I really, really cherry-picked the figures I really wanted rather than buy an entire wave.  That was definitely due to financial reasons and common sense.

Judging based off the previews of the upcoming figures of 2019, we can easily expect mixed floods of more MCU and comic versions waves, as well as hopefully being able scratch off more of my personal choices on my wish list like Jack of Hearts, Quasar, and Sleepwalker.

Top 10 Possible Candidates for the Marvel Legends Retro Line



What's up people.
Been awhile I know, but a lack of interest is a lack of interest.

What can I say....

I started working a a list of my personal favorite ML figures of 2018, but then it felt more like something I HAD to do rather something I WANTED to. But don't worry, It'll be finished soon enough.

I really debated on whether or not to keep it top 10 or just include ALL the ML figures I've bought for 2018.  We'll see.

Soooo I was feeling recently inspired to briefly talk about the Retro sub line that's being put out under  the Marvel Legends brand, and how to me, it almost seems like the new line to follow if you want updates of classic looks and older Toybiz figures.

I like them so far, especially the Wolverine and Black Widow ones I bought.
I really need to get Ant-Man, Vision, Black Panther, and Wasp ones next, wallet-willing.

-Top 10 Possible Candidates for future Retro Waves:


10). Tigra (Classic)


9). Jack of Hearts (Classic)


8). U.S. Agent 



7). Moon Knight (Classic)


6). Dr. Spectrum 


5). Dr. Doom (Classic Green)


4). Kang The Conqueror (Avengers Assemble show version)


3). Count Nefaria (Classic) 


2). Attuma (Classic)


1). Starfox

December, What December?


What's up people?

Fuck me, it's December already and man, personally I'm just ready for this month to hurry up and be over with already.

That being said, I did luck out there as far as figures go.
I bought the last 3 figures I needed in the ML X-Men Apocalypse BAF to complete him, which were Multiple Man, Sabertooth and Magneto.




















Overall I happy with my purchases. Didn't buy that Yellow costumed Wolverine though. Thankfully I skip him since he only came with theo hoses for 'Pocy. 



Oh and this is for Googum because I told him I could :

It's a panel from a Jack Kirby-drawn issue of the Manhunter 1st Issue Special he did in the mid 70's, but dubbed over using lyrics from the Talking Heads' song, "Once in a lifetime."

Here's the original panel for comparison:

Top 10 Marvel Villains I'd Send To DC

TGIT!!!!!



Finally, we've gotten to the last entry in this week-long series where I've been swapping Marvel and DC characters back and forth, exploring which ones would and could most likely exist in each other's respective universes.

I've gone through 10 DC heroes and villains going into the MU, and now it's time to wrap up the Marvel side of things as I lay out my top 10 list of Marvel villains I feel could work in the DCU.

Here we go.....


-Top 10 Marvel villains I'd Send to DC:



1). Annihilus

Aside from the fact that you'd also have to either swap the Negative Zone to the DCU as well, I guess he could also become an inhabitant of the Phantom Zone, making him a Kryptonian by default, which would make him a Superman antagonist. That'd be cool. Or a dimension or planet made just for him. Either way, he's not so bound up in the MU that he couldn't also transition into a DC villain. 

2). Crossbones 


He's a hired gun, but a very well-trained, and very resourceful hired gun. Sure he's loyal to the Red Skull, but I can easily see him either going solo or hooking up with a major power-player in the DCU.

3). Baron Zemo


Nazis exist in the DC Universe too, so this one should be an easy transition. Instead of Captain America, he could fight the JSA as a legacy villain, The JLA or even the Freedom Fighters. Hey, he's a versatile villain I swear!

4). The Purple Man 





































Zebediah Killgrave would more than likely be a fun and very interesting addition to the DCU. I see easily being used as either a street-level criminal fighting against guys like Batman, Green Arrow and the like, or in villain super-group with Lex Luthor in the Legion of Doom. either way, Killgrave would make a fun, but fatal inclusion into the DC mix.


 5). Arcade 

Ok the DCU could definitely use this guy. I mean sure just imagine the match-ups he'd have with the JLA, Outsiders, Teen Titans or any other team or singular hero like the Flash for example. His gimmick of building customized deathtraps for rich clients could and should work out just fine. Hell I'm already salivating at the thought of Arcade testing his skills out Batman, or a potential rivalry with the Riddler or Joker over who can build a better deathtrap. 


6). Tiger Shark 

He can easily be used as an Aquaman villain as much as he is strictly a Namor villain or rolling with the Masters of Evil, he could roll with the Legion or Injustice Gang. Okay so maybe I'm breaking the rules about not using villains with similar gimmicks to their DC counterparts, but in my defense he's doesn't have the same power and skillset as other Aquaman villains, so there's that. Fuck it, he stays. 

7). M.O.D.O.K.

This big-brained motherfucker would definitely work in the DCU. But instead of running AIM, he could run H.I.V.E. or some other evil scientific enclave. Fuck! Ok so yeah he's visually similar to Hector Hammond, but that's only a visual similarity. They don't share the same powers. he stays.

8). Blastaar 


Much like his fellow Negative Zone neighbor Annihilus, Blastaar could also work in the confines of the DCU. He can easily be utilized as an cosmic villain, trying to invade Earth or other planets in the DC Universe as a means to expand his kingdom in the Negative Zone. Which means lots of fun match-ups with Superman and the JLA, Lobo maybe, Adam Strange, and the Green Lantern Corps just to name a few.

9). The Mandarin 


Here's another good choice to introduce into the DCU; The Mandarin. His origin story about finding an advanced alien ship with powerful rings can still work without him being tied to Iron Man. Instead it just seems like a no-brainer to pair him the Green Lantern since they both share the the same power ring as a weapon theme. And honestly they just seem they'd be more of a natural antagonistic pairing than Iron Man does.

10). Dr. Doom 


Ok, so yeah he's mostly known as being an FF villain, their main one to be exact, but he's also fought just about every other hero and hero team in the MU. Meaning he's long since graduated from just being simply a guy the FF fights every other week or month. He's a lot more versatile than that. So, with some minor tweaks to his origin, namely swapping out Reed for someone else, who points out to Victor a minor, but very important miscalculation, he blows his face up and away we go. I'm not sure at this point if the person pointing out the mistake is has to be an important hero, but if you really want it to be, than maybe Ray Palmer, Dr. Will Magnus or some other good guy genius scientist can fit the bill.  I know one thing, I'd love to see the above image realized for real, that'd for damn sure.


So, that's my list. What would your list look like? Similar to mine or vastly different?
Let me know your thoughts in the comments' section.
