You think Spider-Man's well-represented in the action figure realm? Check out my boy M.O.D.O.K. He has...uh...three figures. Well, four, now that we're announcing the latest plastic M.O.D.O.K. masterpiece. But we'll get to that in a bit.
Okay, so maybe M.O.D.O.K. doesn't quite have Spidey's draw, nor the web-slinger's number of figures, but he makes up for it in quality! Behold M.O.D.O.K.'s toy gallery and the first look, world premiere of the Marvel Super Hero Squad M.O.D.O.C. toy!
M.O.D.O.K. with Brain Blasts
: Iron Man, animated line
: Toy Biz
: M.O.D.O.K.'s first foray into the action figure world comes complete with a Brain Blasts action feature! Jam a little missile into M.O.D.O.K.'s forehead and it launches! Okay, it's not the most exciting M.O.D.O.K. toy, but beggars can't be choosers.
: Marvel Mutant Mayhem, Unique #90
: M.O.D.O.K. does a lot of stuff. Seriously. Geekspeak time! M.O.D.O.K.'s moves include Mind Control, Force Blast, Psychic Blast, Outwit, Invulnerability and more. And at 144 points, he's definitely a heavy-hitter in the HeroClix world.
M.O.D.O.K. Marvel Legends, Build-a-Figure
: Marvel Legends, Series 15
: You want the biggest, baddes M.O.D.O.K. figure yet? You have to work for it! Not only do you have to save money and then hunt down all the figures in the series, but you must construct M.O.D.O.K. from the pieces packaged with them! Beta Ray Bill comes with the hover base, Captain Marvel comes with the control panel, The Wasp comes with the legs, Moon Knight comes with the left arm. Thor Buster Iron Man comes with the right arm and Spider-Woman comes with the most important piece—M.O.D.O.K.'s head.
Marvel Super Hero Squad M.O.D.O.C.
: UNLIMITED CUTENESS! You can't look at M.O.D.O.C.'s adorable, smiling face and not want to high five him and go out brain-blasting people for fun. Oh, and the C is for Conquest. Killing, shmilling, Conquest is where it's at in 2009!
Okay, so, what is M.O.D.O.K. Week, you may ask? We realized we had a whole bunch of cool M.O.D.O.K. projects at Marvel, and specifically at Marvel.com, so what better way to celebrate them than to dedicate an entire week to M.O.D.O.K.?
