Hey, not a review! Marvel Universe Thor:

Avengers dissemble!  Yes, dissemble.  Look it up!
Even though I worked a twelve-hour shift today, it was still a lucky day, since I found the new Marvel Universe Thor! I might have more pictures and whatnot up for it later, but I wanted to get some in-package pictures since I had a question:
As you can see in the first two pictures, Thor can hold Mjolnir in his right hand, with the left being a closed fist. (Oddly, Mjolnir isn't mentioned by name on the packaging or the top-secret H.A.M.M.E.R. file. And yet, I can spell it off the top of my head.)

But the back has a reversed-photo, which makes it look like Thor's a lefty. I don't know if this was used for the publicity stills, either.

I may have another picture later, with the larger Marvel Select Thor, who also has the hammer-holding right. Incidentally, MS Thor is a great figure as well, probably my favorite Marvel Select figure, but the larger Thor may actually have a couple less points of articulation than his smaller counterpart! A quick heads-up: not unlike some of the other Marvel Universe figures I have, the balljoint on Thor's neck occasionally pops his head off! It pops right back on, but I'm not used to that.

I don't plan on buying every single Marvel Universe figure, but this is a pretty damn good one. I may crack and get Bucky, the first Bucky figure (as Bucky) I'll have ever bought; but that may be due to the two tommyguns he comes with. That Secret Wars Dr. Doom/Absorbing Man set (with a bonus Wasp!) is looking mighty tempting now as well, so Thor has someone to smite upon...

That is a nice Thor figure. The thighs are on the beefy side, but I suppose he can get away with it.

Cool, my girlfriend call me "Thor at the bed" and you know what...I just love it because it's so exacting! I know, I know dear blogger, probably I've got a mental ill, but you've got the same problem : we're like a little child in this huge world, so we need this! I need sex, a lot of sex and you need this, a lot of little figures. It's all about balances! 23jj
