Micro Force Series 2 Review

I’ve spent a lot of time on this blog discussing what new figures are coming and to where, but I never finished reviewing the current series! So, in the spirit of being grateful for what you have, here we go.

Series 2 is the first series to give us new figures, and features figures from Rogue One and The Force Awakens.

Jyn Erso is one of my favorite figures in this set, and her enemy the Death Trooper is a close second. Both figures have a ton of detail despite their small size. I especially like the mix of gloss and matte paints on the Trooper.

This mix of gloss and matte paints is also used on Kylo Ren. Now that we have Ren and Captain Phasma (and Snoke in an upcoming set) we really need a basic First Order Stormtrooper.

I couldn’t be happier with this set and the fact that Hasbro keeps making more of these figures. I am anxiously awaiting the new sets!

May The Fourth Be With You

In honor of Star Wars Day, the local hospital system gave away this T-shirt to anyone who gave blood today.

Check out blood donation centers in your area. You can literally save a life, with no Jedi training required.

I should have had them check my midichlorian count while I was there…

STAR WARS MICRO FORCE TIE FIGHTER PILOT

Our series covering the new Micro Force Series 2 takes a turn to the dark side with one of the bad guys, a TIE Fighter Pilot!

Here’s the new pilot with one of the original Fighter Pod pilots. With rumors circulating that the line may soon include vehicles, these pilots may get some new ships soon!

NEW MICRO FORCE COMING THIS SPRING

Hasbro-Solo-Reveals-April-9-2018-014

Yesterday Hasbro released photos of their new toys from the Solo movie, and they included a new line of Micro Force, available this spring.  This line just keeps getting better and better with six figures from the new Solo movie plus Cassian and K-2SO from Rogue One! K-2SO is one of my top wants, and I’m so happy they included the sarcastic droid in this series.

Also included are four previously released Fighter Pod figures.  X-Wing Pilot Luke, Force-choke Vader, and the helmet-holding Clone Trooper are some my favorites from the old Fighter Pod line, and I never found that version of Mace Windu, so I’m excited about all four.

Hasbro, another great job!  While I am not usually a completist, I’m definitely getting all of these figures.

Marvel Fighter Pods: Agent Phil Coulson

I was going through my figures looking for parts for another custom and noticed that the Star Trek Scotty looked like Phil Coulson of Avengers and Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D fame. Since he’s one of my all-time favorite characters, I had to make my own version.  He’s presented here with his Season 3 look, complete with robot hand and two icers.

Coulson was made from the aforementioned Scotty head, a Star Trek Grasia torso and legs, and a Star Wars Captain Rex arms and guns. His jacket is made from electric tape and clay.

I also recently stumbled across this old picture taken in my parking lot shortly after the release of the first Avengers movie and way before the Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D show had been announced.  I was a fan of Coulson, but had no idea anyone else was at the time. Seeing this message written in the dirt of a parked SUV really surprised and amused me.

SUPER BOWL SUNDAY!

In true toy geek fashion, I’ve celebrated the Super Bowl the last few years by picking up a pack of Teeny Mates blind bag football figures. Each figure is the same pose (with a different pose each year) but has a specific team’s colors and logo. This year I got a Baltimore Raven and a New York Jet. These guys fit in nicely with my Fighter Pod collection.
