Hulk Gamma Lab

Hasbro Toy Shop has put the Gamma Lab up for sale officially on their site. After the SPRREQ8 coupon code, the price is $38.82.

Hasbro, while the playsets aren't everyone's cup of tea, at least give us new ones! You know what were the coolest things about the classic Masters of Universe? Playsets. Castle Grayskull, Snake Mountain, Eternia, The Slime Pit. You know what made them great? They made sense. The features were modest (the occasional trap door, a prison cell) but there was a reason for it.

Now, try it again, but give us Tony Stark's labs, with little containers for his "spare" armors (re: the extra Iron Men we have) and a launch zone for him to take off and battle evil. And an X-Mansion, with a danger room of claws/spikes/booby traps. I bet with the right design and ooh factor you could even sell kids on a Sanctum Sanctorum with skylight entrance, mystical dimension trapdoor, and an exclusive Shuma Gorath to fight off.

  • Hi there. I am not sure if this is the right place to post this, but I would like to see the following figures made for the Super Hero Squad line:

    1. (beat) cop;
    2. street thug and/or gangster;
    3. SHIELD Agent;
    4. Hydra soldier;
    5. AIM soldier;

    I thought that since they have already made figures for Hand Ninja, Hulkbuster soldier and Skrull Soldier, why not these. I think they will be great for enacting scenes.

    At the moment I am using figures from the Indiana Jones Adventure Heroes line (Mutt Williams, Col. Dovchenko and German Mechanic) to fill the role of 2 above, but it is not quite the same.

    What do you think?

  • Well, this is as good a place as any to post it. I like the ideas, we did see a blond SHIELD agent at SDCC, and despite the army of Spider-clones the Super Hero Squad army-builder is relatively new, with the Hand Ninja only being a few months old.

    Other potential army builders? Kree soldiers, Shi'ar warriors, Doombots, SHIELD Cape-killers?

  • Thank you for that.

    Initially I thought they will be doing a SHIELD Agent but it turns out that it will be a classic Nick Fury, right? Not that I am complaining about that though.

    Yes to Kree soldiers, to Shi'ar warriors, Doombots ... whatever is good for army building ...

  • It's no problem. We should probably start a post or something where people can leave their top requests and we can later tally them or something.

    As for Nick Fury/SHIELD agent, I'm as up in the air as anyone. Big Bad Toy Store's listing was for "blond SHIELD agent" while their picture was Nick Fury. Both a blond SHIELD agent and a Nick Fury were shown at SDCC, and Nick was on the slides...

  • I guess they like to keep us on our toes.

    Yes, may be we can start a post for a "wish list" for army building.

    It is such a shame that the City in Crisis and Winter Soldier Saga packs have been delayed yet again.
