Hey, my fellow Plastic Addicts. 2022 is a big year for the Norse God of Thunder. He will be getting his fourth solo movie in July and Hasbro seems to be jumping on the band wagaon early has they have already revealed two figures that are tied into that movie. No word on when they will reveal the Love and Thunder wave, but I don’t think it will be long after the Avengers wave. Speaking of the Avengers wave, which will also have a Thor figure (see here) but no word what version it is.
I already did a NCS for Ulik, for the Walmart exclusive Deluxe set. (And no. I don’t know when it will be available). So today we will look at the evil clone / cyborg of Thor, Ragnarok. Honestly, I don’t know what the hate towards this figure is. (Apparently, it’s not because it’s a Target exclusive. Go Figure). You all expected it to be made when you first saw the Classic figure. What? Is it because they didn’t include a Classic head with the deluxe set? Yes, that’s because it’s not Thor. It’s a separate character. It’s Ragnarok. It even says so on the box. Honestly, if this is because you missed the 80th version, that’s not really on Hasbro.
I also because added the Alternate for Thor in the form of Gods of Thunder. I know Throg will be coming and while I would love a classic version, I wouldn’t mind if Hasbro made War Thor before we get big old Volstagg.
Next time we will look at Darwin.
