This article is the first in a new semi-regular series, Fighter Pod-ish. Fighter Pods are my favorite toy line, but sadly, there haven’t been any new toys in years. However, I have collected some toys that are in the same vein and display well with the Fighter Pods.
This Antman is part of a new line called Ooshies, which are marketed as pencil toppers. While I decided not to collect this line, I realized that this line’s Antman would make a great Giantman for my Fighter Pod figures (as pictured here with my custom movie Captain America Fighter Pod).
The new Heroclix set based on the Captain America: Civil War movie came out today. There are two sets: one for hobby-based shops and one for the mass market (usually Target). There are six figures common to both sets and 4 exclusive to each. The hobby-based set is out; the Target set hasn’t shown up yet.
I picked up four packs and pulled two commons (Black Widow and Hawkeye) and two exclusives (Giant-man and the Winter Soldier).
These figures are very high quality with very detailed faces. Giant-man even has the texture of his costume sculpted into the figure.
Here’s the new Winter Soldier along with the figure from the eponymous set as well as a custom I made of Bucky taking over the Cap mantle.
