10 Years of Marvel Cinematic Universe Figures (Hasbro)

The Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU) celebrates its 10th Anniversary this year. And during that time a number of figures based on the MCU have been released. I've put together a simple look back at some of the figures through the years. I've focused mainly on Hasbro releases as they are what I have the most of. Note that I do not have all of the figures and some I deliberately left out to balance the pics and for framing purposes. Let's get on with it shall we.

Ready Player One Inspired Pics

Click image to enlarge

I was a winner in a contest to catch an early screening of "Ready Player One" recently. (Thanks Geek Culture and Warner Bros. Singapore !) The show was awesome! It had plenty of action and was lots of fun. Things get set up very quickly and we are introduced to the VR world that is The Oasis. I'm sure you're aware that there are lots and lots of pop culture characters and references in it. One screening is not enough to catch them all. I'm not going to spoil anything. I'll just say I loved the sequences with DeLorean, Iron Giant and the RX-78-2. Really cool! I love the soundtrack too. There are several familiar tunes. I just wish that certain characters, both human and avatars were used more. I also didn't like the shaky camerawork in some instances and how some things are so convenient.

I was buzzing after the show. So much so I decided to dig out some figures for a shot. The above was randomly put together. Please excuse the scale. I deliberately did not use much Marvel and Star Wars as I cover quite a lot of those already. Besides I was already struggling for space and background paper.

That's right! To celebrate the upcoming release of Avengers: Infinity War, Robert Downey Jr. (Tony Stark/Iron Man), Benedict Cumberbatch (Stephen Strange/Doctor Strange), Karen Gillan (Nebula) and Joe Russo (Director) are coming to Singapore and will be making an appearance at a show-stopping red carpet-style fan event at Marina Bay Sands (MBS) on 16th April 2018. 

The event will be free and open to the public. But do note that there is a capacity limit and you will need to register if you want to go for the event. More details will be released on 2nd April 2018 at 12 noon so be sure to check the website  then. I know I will. Heck I might even be at MBS on that day just in case.
