If you've been visiting the Playground for quite sometime, chances are, you already know that I'm a huge Avengers fan since I was a child. This year's live-action movie left a lot of toy-collecting opportunities on its wake and simply put, it further pushed my obsession with the team (and with toys) to new dimensions. Unfortunately, most of the figures from the film's 3.75" line of action figures suck and for a guy who's passionately into the 1:18 scale, I really am offended by Hasbro's bonehead decision to cut extremely back on articulation to lower their production costs. Still, I'm a fan and I constantly have to do what fans do best which is to patronize beyond reason or logic. So, here I am, with four new action figures in tow. Come on, let's do this!

[Acquisitions] Super Hero Squad Iron Man & War Machine 2-Pack and Iron Man: The Armored Avenger War Mechs 3-Pack
When I dropped by SM Megamall last June 16 for the 11th Philippine Toy Convention, I thought I was in for a big day. I had set aside a huge chunk of my incentive pay for the said event and I was really raring to go. Yes, I was able to score a bunch of Funko Pop! bobbleheads and figures (my newest addictions) at the Con but the Marvel Universe and Iron Man figs which I really came for were nowhere to be found. Fortunately, I was able to spot and score these Super Hero Squad sets to somehow make the long trip worthwhile.
