Welcome to The Stormtrooper Effect

This is where i will review and discuss toys, video games and movies. I collect 3 3/4 inch to 12 inch Star Wars, Iron Man, Batman, Halo toys and other movie memoribillia that appeal to me! As of late i am into Hot Toys 12' inch figures. Thank you for visiting my page and I hope you enjoy browsing through my site as much as I enjoy sharing it with you!

Catch of the Day

Went on my weekly 'checkpoints' patrol routine to scout for any interesting items and came up with this today, which was a far cry from what i originally intended. ( stormtroopers and more stormtroopers to build up the 3 3/4 inch empire; attribute that to the whole the Force Unleashed enthusiasm). Cost me $39.90.
Considering that it looked fantastic and was reasonably priced for an approximately 9 1/2 inch figure. well, here goes my catch of the day: Marvel Legends: Unleashed black costume spider-man.

A pretty decent figure with a nice sculpt in general. The packaging's pretty good and i don't intend on opening it as yet. This figure boosts 34 points of articulation though there're no swivel biceps and thighs or calves like the movie's spiderman which in my opinion, makes the figure look better. Despite its relatively steep price of $39.90, it appears to be a pretty solid figure and i like the matt black paint used on this Black Costumed spider-man as opposed to the marvel legends version which was rather shiny and looked much more like a kid's play thing. A definitive addition to my collection this figure will be, i must say.
