49 YEARS AGO TODAY besides the usual monthly THOR pamphlet, the second annual was also in the shops with 30 pages of new Kirby art.


It featured the third appearance of this easily reusable Lee/Kirby-conceived Thor opponent. The Destroyer is a more interesting opponent than a robot because it has to be animated by the lifeforce of another.

IN THE SHOPS TODAY: $179.99

AGE OF ULTRON THOR 
DRAGON MODELS USA

A hybrid between a display figure and a kit, Dragon brings you the best of both worlds. The use of model kit techniques allow us to reproduce the intricate details and sharp lines to maximize the usage of the official 3D character scans. The use of the static display concept ensures that there are no cooling lines on the torsos and no visible ball joints that are prominent in most "action" figures. Additionally, the figures are set in a Marvel suggested pose so that the body portions won't be deformed when the poses are changed.
