gliding terror

Green Goblin
Marvel Universe 3 3/4 inch action figure
Manufacturer: Hasbro
Origin: Marvel Universe

Norman Osborn, one high-tech gadget industrialist who got double personalities: as a businessman and as a crazy psychopath who dressed up in Halloween costume and terrorize the city with pumpkin… yeah right, pumpkin people… but this is no ordinary pumpkin, it’s filled with stuffing…of explosion!!

he’s one of my fav super villains in Marvel comic, and I consider him to be the true arch enemy of Spiderman
if Batman got Joker, Superman got Lex Luthor, surely this one is the true enemy of good ol’ Peter Parker

Green Goblin is not a super villain who got brains only as his weapon, he also got a glider ;p
well yeah, you need a glider to catch up with that swinging spider right…?

anyway, this 3 inch version of the villain is one of the best built character among Hasbro’s 3 inch super heroes!!

what makes this figure great? the costume is comic accurate, the glider is wide and cool enough, the facial expression that just right, and the best one of all IMO is the finishing color… his goblin’s skin/scale colored in a great metallic green, the best one compare to other Green Goblin figures in my collection!! the price is also right, I got mine loose for 20 Sing Dollar with two other main characters, which were Spidey and modern armor Ironman, not baaaad..

then what’s the downer?? okay, the biggest one that I found is that pumpkin!! it looks nothin like a pumpkin!! more like one big ugly onion… aaw c’mon, pumpkin should looks bigger, or at least wider than that!! not like that tall, yellow and thin smiling onion

maybe Hasbro could add one more very interesting yet simple accessories, a transparent display stand base to hold up the glider for a flying effect, so this figure would actually be more PERFECT for everyone ;)
