First Haul of 2014: Killer Instinct Sam, Revenger, End Walker plus Funko Pop Batman and Robin

This was my first haul of 2014. I got the OE (original effect) 1/6 scale Killer Instinct "Mechanical" SAM 13.5-inch female action figure, VTS Toys 1/6 scale The Revenger 12-inch figure (basically Ray Stevenson as the Punisher from the "Punisher: War Zone" movie), MC Toys 1/6 scale The End Walker 12-inch figure (inspired by Denzel Washington's character in the 2010 film "The Book of Eli") and Funko Pop Heroes Batman and Robin from the classic TV series.

Great start to the year! Scroll down to see the rest of the pictures :)

OE (original effect) first previewed Killer Instinct SAM with one head sculpt (see pictures HERE) and then added a second version SAM head sculpt not too long after. This resulted in mixed responses with some preferring the first over the second and vice versa. In the end, OE decided to just include both female head sculpts for customers / collectors to choose which one they prefer to pose Killer Instinct SAM with. I don't mind that at all :)

VTS Toys 1/6 scale The Revenger 12-inch figure has been a long time coming. Previewed in April 2014 (posted HERE), many collectors have been eagerly anticipating this figure because of the resemblance to Ray Stevenson who plays the Punisher in the "Punisher: War Zone" movie. That and the fact that Art-Figures: SAVES "Punisher: War Zone" Figure is very rare and hard to get due to the fact that nobody expected much from Art Figures when they first previewed him but all were blown away with the product when it was released, resulting in over demand and short supply, thus causing the price of the figure to skyrocket. Check out my review of the Art-Figures: SAVES "Punisher: War Zone" Figure HERE and HERE

Here's a teaser picture of the 1/6 scale weapons that are included with the VTS Toys The Revenger 12-inch figure boxed set. Lots of cool accessories and gear

Previewed in November 2013 (see pictures HERE) and released end December 2013, now that's fast unlike VTS Revenger. The End Walker is Denzel Washington as seen in "The Book of Eli", a 2010 American post-apocalyptic action film also starring Gary Oldman, Mila Kunis, Ray Stevenson, and Jennifer Beals.

These are my first two Funko Pop Heroes figures and they are Batman and Robin from the classic TV series. While waiting for Hot Toys to release their Batman (1966): 1/6 Adam West as Bruce Wayne / Batman Collectible Figure (previewed HERE) and Batman (1966): 1/6 Burt Ward as Dick Grayson / Robin Collectible Figure (pictures HERE), I decided to get these two companion figures because they are just too cute.

Here's something I found on the internet: The Evolution of Robin. The original Boy Wonder Robin was Dick Grayson and the mantle was then passed on to Jason Todd, Tim Drake and Damian Wayne, all of them taking on other roles as they grew. That's quite a lot of Robin.

Great haul, Alex!
Man, I had to cancel my Revenger. I think you are going to make me regret it. And the Killer Instinct SAM is probably the only OE femme fatale I've been interested in... can't wait to read your reviews!

Thanks Kaido. I'm afraid you are right concerning Revenger (wish I had ordered at least two). Killer Instinct SAM is also the only other OE female figure I was keen on. Reviews up soon. Cheers
