Marvel Studios Heroes #7 The Wasp Action Figure

The seventh action figure in the Marvel Studios Heroes toy line is the Wasp. Not only is she the only woman that I got in the McDonald's Happy Meal but she was also the last figure that I received in that set. Yep, I only got four out of the nine action figures. I will probably be looking for the others at the local thrift stores next year.

One final note that I haven't mentioned before. All the action figures in the Marvel Studios Heroes toy line can be connected together side by side.

Marvel Studios Heroes Happy Meal Box

I actually got a few of the Marvel Studios Heroes Happy Meals from the local McDonald's in October. The front of the box features Black Widow in her white outfit. The right panel features "The Power of Protein" so you can turn your milk into a super hero with a punch out Vision cape.

The back panel shows only a smile to put you in a happy mood. The left panel lists all the action figures available in the Marvel Studios Heroes Happy Meal and includes: Falcon, Winter Soldier, Vision, Scarlet Witch, Potted Groot, Gladiator Hulk, The Wasp, Hulkbuster and Black Widow.

I will be showing the action figure toys that I got in the next few days.

Women Wednesday: Punchline #1

First, here is the summery for Punchline #1 now on sale:

Spinning out of the pages of "The Joker War" comes the first solo book starring the blockbuster new character Punchline. As she faces the consequences for her role in "The Joker War," the story of how Alexis Kaye became Punchline will take Leslie Thompkins, Harper Row, and Cullen Row on a harrowing journey that reveals a fringe teenager's radicalization to the ideology of a madman.

I actually found myself enjoying the story and artwork more than I thought I would. My main reason for enjoying this issue had more to do with Harper Row aka Bluebird and her brother, Cullen, than that of Punchline herself. The artwork is surprisingly bright considering how dark the artwork usually is in the Batman books. I can actually read the white text on black background. Overall, I give this issue a B-.

Goodnight Sir Thomas Sean Connery

I am still sad after reading Actor Sean Connery, the ‘original’ James Bond, dies at 90. He passed away on Halloween 2020.

Countdown to Halloween 2020 Day 31: Halloween PEZ 2020 Trio

I actually found the following Halloween PEZ 2020 trio at a Walgreen's while on a road trip out of town a few weeks ago. I was actually looking for the Thanksgiving Dinner Candy Corn (they are nasty by the way) when I found these. The store had only these three available and I found out later that only the Angry Pumpkinhead PEZ is new for 2020 (PEZ calls him Scary Pumpkin but he looks more angry to me).

First up is Angry Pumpkinhead PEZ with a black body:

The Happy Pumpkinhead PEZ originally came out in 2018 and has a green body:

The Vampire Boy PEZ originally came out in 2013 but he is officially called Baby Vampire:

Each came with a pack of candy corn flavored PEZ candy (the taste is faint to me but they are tons better than the Turkey Dinner Candy Corn):

I still have the PEZ Witch from 2011 still in the package.

This post wraps up the Halloween 2020 season for Moongem Comics. I hope you enjoyed my posts this year and be sure check other sites at Countdown to Halloween.
