View Full Version : Ninjinister Likes 3 3/4" figures (collection photos)

01-04-2011, 08:25 PM
A couple of years ago, I wasn't really a fan of 3 3/4 action figures. They're quite expensive for something so small. However, my mum got me a Flash/Prof. Zoom 2-pack and now I can't get enough of them. I still find them to be way too expensive ($8-10 on average in this area), but most of the time I get them on sale or clearance, or find them ridiculously cheap online. I estimate that I have more than 40 of them, mostly Marvels, but also a few DCs and even a couple of Hellboys. Bizarrely, almost every DC fig I have had some role in Blackest Night/Brightest Day, despite there not being no actual figures in that scale from that storyline.

Anyway, from time to time I'll be uploading some photos of some select figures/groups from my collection. Enjoy.

My two Deadpool figs (Deadpool is AWESOME)
The one on the left is from the deluxe Deadpool figure that came with a giant rocket launcher (it, for some reason, was cheaper than the standard figure), and the right one is the much-despised "Weapon XI" version from X-Men Origins: Wolverine (I saw it on clearance for like $3 so I thought "why the hell not")

"Freedom Prevails!"
Ol' Cap'n America. From left to right: Standard, Classic, WWII (Ultimate), Black & White, and Bucky Barnes.

Welcome to the club buddy!

There's a club? :p

Here's a few more:

Cyclops. Wolverine & The X-Men version on the left, Secret Wars on the right

Spider-Woman. Jessica Drew on the left, Julia Carpenter on the right.

Wonder Woman. Classic and Standard.

Starro. Obviously larger than 3 3/4" but it's part of the line.

Skrull Giant Man, Yellow Jacket, and Ant Man

More I say, more!

Sabretooth. The left one is the standard comic version, and the one on the right is based on the diminutive Liev Schreiber portrayal in X-Men Origins: Wolverine.

Norman Osborn! First one is the Green Goblin from the Marvel Universe line, and the second one is from the Spider-man line. Third, is a special shiny repaint with a rubbery pumpkin bomb called "Sky Bomber" Green Goblin. Next, we have Iron Patriot in standard and unmasked.

We are Venom! Left to right: Toxic Blast Venom, Water Spitter Venom, Aqua Venom, and Dark Spider-Man (which technically counts)

Monsieur Mallah and The Brain, the team of a male gorilla and the disembodied brain of a male human... that are in love with one another.

Flash! x2! Barry Allen and (I think) Wally West.

It seemed like at one point there was a lack of people collecting these, especially around here. I'm just really glad to see them catching on is all.

01-05-2011, 08:36 PM
I like how Bucky's pistol makes it look like he's flipping off the Steves! :D

"Freedom Prevails!"
Ol' Cap'n America. From left to right: Standard, Classic, WWII (Ultimate), Black & White, and Bucky Barnes.

Well if that's the case, I've been in the "club" for a while (a year or two at least), I've just never taken photos.

Hellboy and Johann Kraus. I honestly love these more on the whole, than the others in my collection. Not only because I'm a big Hellboy fan, but because they're much more detailed and painted better than the Marvel or DC figures, and come with decent accessories for approximately the same price. It's a shame that there aren't very many in this line.

Secret Wars Hulk, Red Hulk, and World War Hulk

Human Torches: Jim Hammond and Johnny Storm

Young Bucky Barnes, Winter Soldier, and his Captain America incarnation, just for completion's sake. So now he's flipping himself off.

Batman, JLU Batman, and old man Wayne.

Nightwing (Dick Grayson of course) and Tim Drake Robin

Mary Jane Watson and Kitty Pryde, with their accompanying Pet Avengers members, Ms. Lion and Lockheed. They definitely need to release more Pet Avengers.

More shots of the Pet Avengers.

Fantastic collection!! I'm a big JLU fan, myself. That red Superman is actually a tougher one to find! Nice job.

I love 3 3/4" figures, I hated that scale as a kid for the most part as I never cared for GI Joes and TMNT scaled figures was all I wanted. I remember holding out on Power Ranger toys as much as I loved the show just because I wanted 5" figures not those huge 8" ones they had at first. Anyways I believe it was someone in this forum maybe you Ninjister that showed me how awesome the 3 3/4 scale was when I wanted to start getting into Marvel Legends and instead I got into Marvel Universe.

3 3/4" is just the perfect scale, I don't have a lot of space so its a blessing, this way I can have twice as many figures in any one spot rather than bigger bulkier, it also allows you/them to find/make stuff that is more in scale, especially big stuff like vehicles and bigger characters, I also think the scale can have great articulation and sculpts. Yeah big figures are nice but 6" figures are much more expensive, take more space and those lines usually have less characters as well, the cons don't make up for the few pros they have. Can't wait for the new 3 3/4" action figures which oh we all know its going to happen and oh we all know how the forum is going to melt down when its officially announced and all the dromers rage in the merch section. Oh yeah and nice collection!

Since I've gotten so many new figs since the last time I posted, I figured I'd just reshoot all of 'em. If you're interested in seeing in my Lantern Corps figs, they're all here. (http://forums.thetechnodrome.com/showthread.php?p=862463#post862463)

Okay, let's start off this redux with the original from last time: Deadpool!

This here's the same red Deadpool from last time, along with the X-Force version, Weapon XI, and my custom Wade Wilson.

Now let's go with something non-comic related for once: Sonic the Hedgehog! Thankfully these were all on clearance:


Werehog, some sort of translucent blue thing(!), and Super Sonic.


Back to comics, now we've got Thor. Classic Thor (from the Classic Avengers box) and Secret Wars Thor are too similar, so I'm not sure which is which. Then we've got modern Thor and one of the movie Thors.

Also appearing in the Classic Avengers box were Wasp and Ant-Man. The first Wasp is from Secret Wars, and the second from the CA box. The first Ant-Man came with Yellow Jacket, and the second one (riding the flying ant) was from the CA box.

Tired of Marvel for a bit? Let's hit up DC!

Wonder Womaaaaan! The first one from a special Justice League Unlimited box set, the second from the SDCC 2010 Starro box set. The third one is from a regular old Infinite Heroes release, and the final one from yet another box set (the "OMAC Attack" box).

Now for everyone's favorite second banana and his various identities. There's Nightwing Dick (lol), Teen Titans Robin, Teen Titans Slade Outfit Robin, Red X, Tim Drake Robin, and Jason Todd Hush.

Back to Marvel, it's The Hulk! Classic "derp" Hulk, Secret Wars Hulk, World War Hulk, Gray Hulk, and Red Hulk!

It's Psylocke's brother and Captain America's English counterpart, Captain Britain! I'm not certain which is which, but I believe the first one's from Marvel Universe, and the other two from the Captain America line - one's from a standard release, and the other was from a box set with Captain A and Red Guardian.

Roundin' out this batch is one last DC release, The Atom! We've got Infinite Heroes and JLU versions of both Ray Palmer and Ryan Choi, plus a wee little JLU Choi that came with the big one.

G'night folks!

DragonBall Evolution figs. Movie couldn't have had less to do with DB but it was a semi-decent kids wuxia flick. Here we have two Gokus, Yamcha, Roshi, Fu Lum, Bulma, and Piccolo.

The figures themselves are okay, but they came with what has to be the worst build-a-figure of all time. Behold, the Oozaru!... which is translucent blue, has no back, zero articulation, some bizarre rendition of Saiyan armor, and a face based on the preproduction photos that went around the net before the movie came out. You're supposed to place Goku in the empty back.

Street Fighter characters "Man"-Li and Teiran (the latter of which is from the obscure Street Fighter Online: Mouse Generation game).

WE are VENOM! Toxic Blast, Aqua, and Water Spitter variations, plus Dark Spider-Man and Venom X (which is a bit taller than the rest as you can see, but for whatever reason was being sold as a 3.75 fig. I keep it in my collection anyway).

The first Superman comes from the same box set as that Wonder Woman. Then we have Superman Red and Superman Blue, followed by Superman Beyond.

Bunch of slight variant Supeseseses from various box sets, I forget which comes from which.

Microman Brandon Routh Supes, All-Star Superman pack-in fig (more like a little statuette, but whatevs), and Superman Prime.

Standard Luthor, President Luthor, and Alexander Luthor Jr.

First Class Marvel Girl, Jean Grey, Dark Phoenix

Movie Scorpion, Reptile, Smoke, Johnny Cage, and Goro.

07-11-2011, 09:49 PM
Sabertooth from the X-Men Origins two-pack, First Class Sabertooth, and special edition X-Men Origins two-pack.

Aaaaand some assorted Iron Men. Seriously, most of these are too damn similar and I can't tell some of them apart, so here you go, pick 'em out yourself.


07-14-2011, 08:20 PM
How are the Teen Titans figures? I definitely want a Red X and Slade but I'd love to hear a quick review/opinion of the line before I hunt them down.

12-11-2012, 08:45 PM
Decided to start taking pics again now that I'm settled-ish. I've got an updated look at my Iron Man figures, followed by Worthington.

12-16-2012, 08:34 PM
Scott 'n' Jean, primary Fantastic 4 (plus Jim Hammond for good measure), and Luke 'n' Danny.

12-19-2012, 03:47 AM
Iron Monger, Bobby 'n' Ororo, and Black Widow. Sadly there are three ultra-rare Widows in this scale I'll likely never get my hands on

12-20-2012, 03:42 PM
I wish they'd make a more current style Iceman, with his hair.

01-12-2013, 09:37 PM
Colossi, Lizards, Iron Patriots, and She-Hulks. Enjoy!

06-18-2013, 05:53 PM

Wolverine and kin

Come to me, son of Jor-El. KNEEL BEFORE ZOD!

In the name of revenge, I will punish you!


05-06-2014, 06:56 PM
Is the Thunderbolts one a custom? Also, I need to track down that Jim lee style one.

05-06-2014, 09:17 PM

Yeah it's just the rightmost one before it with a Fury jacket and a repaint.

Nice Robin collection but you need a Damian wayne since he's obviously the best!

I have two right there in the photo. They're both customs because he isn't available in this scale.

02-25-2015, 05:47 AM
true enough you do. I didn't notice the first time I looked cause I recognized the molds. threw me off. :P

Iiiiit's a tokusatsu life

I wasn´t a fan of the 3 3/4" figures until the release of the thundercats and dc multiverse figures. I wished playmates toys were that size.

06-03-2016, 04:40 PM

I totally agree!
