Retro Toy Week: Nick Fury!

No forced perspective, that hand is huuuuuuge.
Although it may have been unintentional, under Toy Biz's various lines, a good-sized chunk of the Marvel Universe was on the toy shelves throughout the 90's. With their Fantastic Four, Iron Man, among others, most of the Marvel Universe was made into a 5-inch figure. (There were a few exceptions, like the first Silver Surfer figures that were bigger.)

Eventually, with their super-articulated Spider-Man figures as a precursor, Toy Biz would start reselling fans the same characters as Marvel Legends. I don't think most fans complained, since the updated figures were a quantum-leap forward in terms of sculpt, paint, and poseability. Whereas, now a lot of Legends fans are now grousing about the switch to the smaller Marvel Universe line.


And all of that is just to set the stage for this, the first Nick Fury action figure, from his guest appearance on the 90's Spider-Man cartoon. He's got a bit of fun play features: the jetpack launches two missiles, although I'm not sure if it's cartoon accurate or anything.

These figures had a bit of an exaggerated sculpt: Nick's hand is big, for example. And the paint wasn't perfect, or maybe he's had a few paint rubs over the years.
