Miscellaneous Series Marvel Gold - 1998



This short series of figures was only released to specialty stores and featured alot of older heroes who had not gotten a figure and who didn't really fit into some of the lines that had already been produced. Without this line, alot of these figures would never get made. each figure was released to a different store and had limited production runs of 7500 to 10000. They would be released slowly over 1998 and 1999.

Black Knight


The Black Knight is a very well done figure for being a repaint and is actually better than the original figure. The figure was a repainted Dread Knight from the Iron Man line, who did have a good sculpt. They took the figure, added a cloth cape and a removable helmet and painted it very well and this is what they came up with. Black Knight is decently articulated and comes with his trademark Ebony Sword. The figure appears to be an amalgam of several of the costumes worn by the various Black Knights but seems to be mostly modeled after the original Black Knight.

Figure ability: None
Accessories: Ebony Sword, Helmet

Black Panther


Black Panther is a pretty good figure for being all black. The figure is a repainted Beetle figure from the Bug Busters line in the Spider-Man series with a modified Prowler head. The figure comes with a small cape that often falls off. He is painted all black, which hides any detail he had, but that's how he is in the comics.

Figure ability: None
Accessories: Cape

Black Widow


Black Widow was made from a Battle Blasters Jean Grey figure. The figure comes with a leather jacket though, which is very cool looking. I think they should have done this with more figures. She also comes with some bracelets that belonged to a Spider-Man figure. They even sculpted a collar on the figure. Overall, this is a very good-looking figure.

Figure ability: None
Accessories: Braclets, Jacket

Captain Marvel


Captain Marvel is a good choice, though he had been dead in the comics for quite some time. The figure itself is another Archangel II repaint. He even uses the same head and still has the spot for the wings on his back. The figure is good though, since the Archangel II figure was. The figure is decently painted and a good likeness of the character.

Figure ability: None
Accessories: None

Falcon


This Falcon figure is probably the best in the line in terms of poseability. He is a repainted Daredevil figure from the Spider-Man line, and that figure had tons of articulation. They attached the wings from the first Vulture figure from the Spider-Man lines as well. This figure is very good looking and a nice addition to the Avengers team.

Figure ability: None
Accessories: Redwing falcon

Iron Fist


Iron Fist is a classic hero really didn't fit into any other lines. His figure is actually very well done. He uses an Archangel II body like a lot of other repaints, but this one comes with a plastic shirt as well, which is very well done and looks good on him. The figure is very well articulated, since the Archangel II body was. He comes with a snap on energy glove that originally came with Blizzard.

Figure ability: None
Accessories: Iron energy fist x2

Marvel Girl


Marvel Girl is another Jean Grey variant in an older outfit. This figure comes with a psychic knife that came with a Psylocke figure. Marvel Girl's head has a plastic mask added to it as well as a short skirt. This adds another figure to the X-Men line.

Figure ability: None
Accessories: Psychic knife

Moon Knight


Moon Knight is another figure that uses the same body from Toybiz's Hercules line. His head is completely black and he has a cowl on his cape that fits on his head. It doesn't look too bad, but it could have looked better. The figure is pretty detailed for being mostly white. His belt is removable as well.

Figure ability: None
Accessories: Cape

Power Man


Power Man is another hero who did not fit into any other lines all that well. The body is a reused body from Toybiz's Hercules line, which made for a good Power Man. He is modeled after his classic look that he had stopped wearing some years previous. He comes with his trademark yellow shirt that he wore in the comics for quite awhile. He also comes with a pipe that he can bend. The articulation on this figure is also very good.

Figure ability: None
Accessories: Pipe

Taskmaster


Taskmaster was one of the most requested figures that Toybiz had not made yet. His figure uses a Red Skull head and a Doc Samson body and makes it look very good. He comes with a cloth cape and a sword. The figure itself is pretty colorful and has a good amount of detail and articulation. This is one of the harder Marvel Gold figures to find.

Figure ability: None
Accessories: Sword, Cloak

Vision


The Vision is another figure to use the Archangel II body, but with Silver Surfer's head and a cloth cape. The paint on this figure is very good, a nice metallic green. The figure could have used a bit more detail though, as he looks a little bland.

Figure ability: None
Accessories: None
