Ultra CORPS! Hac Luger

Leave it to Lanard to make one of the coolest bad guy figures ever in 12 inch scale. The company’s CORPS! series didn’t introduce a group of villains until the 2000s Marauders. Hac is a member of the terrifying team that combats the heroes. I don’t recall his appearance in the small scale line, and that’s a shame, because this

Introducing a new storyline depicting the conflict between the CORPS! and villainous group The Curse, the set has also given us newly sculpted figures and two female characters. As usual however, are a group of repainted older releases. Ogre’s mold has been used several times in the

Buckshot (2015 CORPS!)

I’d you’ve been paying attention to Star Wars action figure collecting lately, you’ve probably noticed that a lot of folks are disappointed that the brand’s attention to articulation has diminished. As a vintage SW collector, the return to five point articulation doesn’t bother me much, as it’s what I grew up with both as a kid in the 80s and
