They did a toy based on a character who made one brief appearance in a comic book and was killed.  I am aware that they decided to put him in the IDW comic, but for anyone who didn’t read that, it’s meaningless.  This was really the best they could come up with?  The toy itself is not bad, I like the colors.  I’ve heard about him having major quality control issues (below is a link to more on that).  They could have just done this toy as an original character.  That would have been fine.  Too bad original isn’t in their vocabulary.

Grade: C-

About lmb3

I’m 36 years old, and I work in network tech support for a public school system. I am a huge fan of Star Trek, Transformers, Harry Potter, and Marvel Comics as well as numerous other fandoms. I’m a big sports fan, especially the Boston Red Sox and the New England Patriots. I collect toys (mostly Transformers but other stuff too), comic books, and Red Sox baseball cards. I watch an obscene amount of television and love going to the movies. I am hopelessly addicted to Wizard Rock and I write Harry Potter Fanfiction, though these days I am working on a couple of different original YA novels.
