Whatever happened to this guy?

Well, after doing a teensy bit of research (I looked on eBay), it seems he's either out or due to be out soon. One seller had him listed as a "presale," so that you'd pre-buy it with the idea that it would be available within 30 days of the posting. Other sellers seemed to have it with no delay, including a gold variant. So keep you eyes open, you! The Mojo series of Marvel Legends figures is series #14, if that helps.

This is the first ML fig I've ever thought about getting. Good thing for that beauty shot up there; he doesn't look as appealing in the package.

A gaggle of Star Wars figures

Even more random Star Wars figures

Ready for a little commando raid? This Internet exclusive set of action figures brings you what you've been craving, unless you missed out on who these are and just how great they can be!
This special collector's set of figures brings you everything you need for battle, including:
1x Delta Three-Eight / RC-1138 'Boss'
1x Delta Four-Oh / RC-1140 'Fixer'
1x Delta Oh-Seven / RC-1207 'Sev'
1x Delta Six-Two / RC-1262 'Scorch'
1x Geonosian Warrior (purple)
1x Geonosian Warrior with Blaster
1x Sun Fac
(Subject to change.)

Each figure comes with weapons and accessories needed to fight the good fight during the Clone Wars!

Taken straight from the commando raids in the hit LucasArts Xbox title Republic Commando, this set brings the boys of Delta Squad to action figure form for the very first time. These warriors were trained on Kamino, and were first deployed behind-the-scenes during the Battle of Geonosis, which took place at the end of Episode II: Attack of the Clones. While there, they were put to work destroying the Separatist's droid factories.

Since then, Delta Squad filled a variety of roles for the Republic during the Clone Wars including the assasination of Geonosian leader Sun Fac, the rescue of their fellow clones from Omega Squad, and some missions on the Wookiee world of Kashyyyk.

From the very beginning, it was understood that the tactical superiority of the Grand Army of the Republic would reside in its flexibility of response. Hopelessly outnumbered by the droid armies of the Separatists, every Clone Trooper is expected to be the equal of ten of his enemy. Sometimes though, ten-to-one odds is too much to hope for, and that's when you call in the Deltas.

Delta Three-eight

Known to his men as "Boss," Three-Eight doesn't talk much, except to bark out orders in a voice that carries over the fiercest artillery barrage.


The resident demolitions expert in Delta Squad, Scorch has a special relationship with explosions and the gear that makes them happen. If it ain't broke, give it to Scorch and you can count on getting it back in at least three pieces.


Second in command of Delta Squad, Fixer handles code breaking and computer slicing. Always at the front of a charge, it's his voice that urges his squad mates on under fire. Off the battlefield however, he prefers the company of a good, quiet power droid to his fellow Deltas.


Clones are supposed to be good at fighting, but they're not really supposed to enjoy it. So no one really knows why Sev seems to be happiest when the battle is thickest. If you're looking for him, try checking the middle of the huge pile of blasted battle droids.

Sun Fac

Commander of the Geonosian forces during the Battle of Geonosis, Sun Fac rose to his position of power through a combination of combat prowess and a calculating willingness to do whatever it takes to win.

Geonosian Warriors

Though they lack ranged weapons, their ability to fly gives them an acute advantage on an open battlefield and their powerful force pikes can kill with a single blow.

Star Wars Imperial set

Octopunk, are you gonna get all these?

He finds your lack of faith disturbing! Darth Vader's meeting on the Death Star with some of its best military minds proved that the Sith Lord was really the one in charge, able to choke someone just by gesturing at them. This exclusive boxed set of the best known bureaucrats from the classic film Star Wars brings you 7 unique 3 3/4-inch action figures of the Empire's finest. This set contains: Grand Moff Tarkin, General Tagge, Admiral Motti, Chief Bast, Colonel Wullf Yularen, Officer Cass, and of course Darth Vader armed with his trademark red lightsaber.

Famous figures

I have Freud and Obsessive Compulsive action figures sitting on my shelf at work. The only place I've ever seen this collection is at Newbury Comics, and they're expensive!

Historical Figures
Through the ages many regular everyday people have made steps in their lives to translate groundbreaking ideals to future generations.

Through history these pioneers of life strived on making a difference in the world we live in. Whether they are inventors, politicians, athletes or martyrs, they all made an impact on the way we all live our lives today.

That is why today in tribute to our past, Action Figures like Albert Einstein, Edgar Allen Poe, Abraham Lincoln, Jesus and many more have been developed as an alternative method of inspiration for us to grasp and remember.
