From the back room of misfit toys.

§ June 22nd, 2010 § Filed under misfit toys § 8 Comments

I’ll probably have some follow-ups to comments from yesterday’s post in the next day or two, but in the meantime:

Ooh, the Sentry. That’s a shame. But at least he’s paired up with his best pal, Luke Cage! And I know this is no original observation, but something about seeing the Sentry in Minimate form sorta emphasizes it for me…he really doesn’t look like he belongs in the Marvel Universe, does he? That’s totally a DC Comics-type superhero outfit. But at least he’s in a superhero outfit, Mr. Cage.

And seriously, the no-nose look?

Disturbing as all get-out. And the Pac-Man hands, too. AAAUGH.

    That doesn’t even look like a DC superhero outfit. With that much yellow, he looks like a Green Lantern enemy.

    Without a nose, it must be difficult to know where to grow that mustache.

  • Dean says:

    I say, I say! Luke Cage has no nose!

  • remolay says:

    @Dean How does he smell?

    I know the thing says that’s Luke Cage. But are we absolutely certain that isn’t supposed to be Blade?

    No, I’m not saying all African-American superheroes look alike. I AM saying most African-American superheroes are similarly poorly designed.

  • Mike Walker says:

    Luke Cage has grey hair?

  • Frowny says:

    @Mike Walker: It’s a poorly rendered knit cap.

    And as a collector of these damnable things, I’d like to point out that one of the few they ever did with a nose was the Iron Man armor with the nose feature. Which was pretty great of them.
