I've been picking off ToyBiz figures left and right ,finding them pretty cheap carded on Ebay. Hopefully the prices will remain the same until I'm able to pick up the main figs I'm after.Today we look at Doctor Octopus.
No,this Isn't a Reaction figure.In fact,these days Reaction figures tend to be pretty articulated.But yeah,this Is none other than Doc Ock!Albeit,a slimmed down version. As much as I disliked these figures back then,I totally love them now.He looks so cheezy but yet and still you know It's Doctor Octopus when you look at him.It's all there.The bowl cut ,the glasses ,the tentacles.Speaking of,I was afraid that the tentacles would be flimsy and too fragile to play with.But no,they are actually pretty damn functional.You can even have Ock suspended In air because of how good the bend-em tentacles stay In place.
I know have quite the 3 3/4 Doctor Octopus figure collection.Not on purpose,either.Here they are ,chronologically displayed from left to right.
1988 Mattel Marvel Secret Wars,1991 Marvel Superheroes ToyBiz,2006 ToyBiz and 2015 Marvel Infinite Series.
Believe It or not ,the Marvel Showdown Is my fav of the 4,beating out Secret Wars Doc Ock. Brother Midnight sent me that one and I have yet to do a post on him.It's In the works ,though.
I like the way this line looks with the Tim Mee Battle Mountain playset.
Battle of the suction cups!They look like they work for a glass company.
That just about wraps things up here.Hope everyone has a happy 4th.Catch ya later!
