FLIP AND ATTACK

    The Amazing Spider-Man movie didn't have Marvel Crossovers toys, but did have a small line of flipchangers at the $10 price point, using designs rather similar to the 1985 Jumpstarters. Not too enthused about this line, but I decided to pick one up when they were on sale.

    After numerous attempts by Marvel to create their own lines of transforming Marvel toys (ShapeShifters, MegaMorphs), they finally bowed to the inevitable and licensed out to Hasbro for official Marvel Crossover Transformers.     The Standard toys are $15 (or so) and generally about 6-7 inches tall in robot mode. So far no news whether there will be Ultras.
STANDARD
  • Wave 1: Hulk (tank), Iron Man (jet), Spider-Man (motorcycle), Venom (muscle car). Yes, at last a transforming Spider-Man that doesn't turn into a spider!
  • Wave 2: Human Torch (jet, new mold), Wolverine (rally truck), Hulk (gray recolor, tank), Black Costume Spider-Man (black recolor, motorcycle).
  • Wave 3: Iron Man (black and silver redeco), Carnage (red and black Venom redeco), Thor (A-10 Thunderbolt), Captain America (Hummvee).
  • Wave 4: A yellow and brown Wolverine redeco, the Spider-Man cycle in darker red and blue, various reships. Not reviewed.
  • Wave 5: Spider-Man (racecar, new mold), Hulk (bulldozer, new mold), Wolverine (redeco in black and gray, not reviewed).
  • Wave 6: Iron Man (race car, new mold), Black Costume Spider-Man (race car mold redeco). I found Iron Man first as part of the assortment below.
  • Iron Man 2 Concept Series: Three Iron Man figures (Race Car from wave 6, fighter jet from wave 1, remolded Captain America) and a War Machine (redeco of the combiner jet Iron Man). Only Race Car Iron Man is reviewed.
  • Ghost Rider: Part of a wave that really didn't get out to stores, mostly redecos and reships. This is just a capsule review, if a somewhat lengthy one.
ULTRA OR BIGGER
  • Giant Super Bomber Set: Iron Man (jet) and Spider-Man (helicopter) that combine into a "Giant Super Bomber" or a "Heavy Assault Mode" in addition to individual robot modes. Iron Man's jet looks vaguely like an F-302 from Stargate, while Spider-Man's mode looks like it should dispense with the rotors and be a more SF-ish vehicle. I have since kitbashed it along these lines.
  • Iron Man/War Machine: A three-wheeler Iron Man that combines with an APC War Machine to form what looks like an armored strike hamster.
PRE-CROSSOVER

    I did review some of the pre-Transformers™ transforming Marvel toys, although MegaMorphs were so bad I don't seem to have wasted any words on them. I bought more ShapeShifters than the ones listed below, but didn't review all the ones I bought.
