On the way back from a 3-year-old’s birthday party, we stopped at a Wal-Mart in the middle of Podunk Nowhere. I figured it was as good a place as any for a toy hunt. Amongst the pile of Marvel Legends, there was the missing piece I was looking for to complete Ultimate Green Goblin, the head.
I either needed to find Carnage, or Toxin. Well, it was Toxin in the box, so it was Toxin I bought. He is pretty terrible in person. Just an all around strange figure. His head is terrible, he is out of perportion, and the back tendrils look really strange. But at least I have Goblin now.
Goblin is big and menacing, and on fire. This is not the old mask-wearing Goblin. This is one large, scary guy.
Compared to Spider-Man, he is quite a beast of a figure. He could hold Spider-Man around the waist with his big hands. I wish he would have come with a better figure, but you can’t always get what you want. Overall, I am pleased with the look of Goblin, and I am looking forward to finishing the Captain America Series as well as starting on the new Guardians of the Galaxy series.
