Hasbro makes us an incredible Skullbuster figure!

Skullbuster is an X-Men villain who appeared in Uncanny X-Men #229. He is a member of the criminal cyborgs the Reavers who committed robberies across the world. It was later revealed that the Reavers were created by longtime X-Men foe Donald Pierce.  And I for one am so glad Hasbro gave us an action figure based on him.

This is an excellent figure. Such a menacing looking toy. I love it. Skullbuster is about 70% cyborg and Hasbro does an incredible job capturing that here. The paint apps are nice and clean. My favorite is the skull on his face. Just nice paint work here.

Skullbuster also wears a vest and bandolier of bullets. Both can come off if you’re careful.

For accessories, he comes with a big looking gun. This has been used on other figures before, but that’s OK. Skullbuster also comes with another head. You can turn Skullbuster into his fellow Reaver Reese. It’s the little detail like this that makes me love the Marvel team at Hasbro.

All the points of articulation are the same as you’d get with any Marvel Legend, so no complaints there.

Finally, he comes with Caliban’s right arm for the Build-A-Figure piece.

I’m really loving this figure. This is also the type of figure you can use for army building which is always cool!

Many thanks to Hasbro for sending us Skullbuster!

You can find Skullbuster at retail stores or you can buy directly from Hasbro Pulse.
