#29: Marvel Universe - Ghost Rider

After seeing Black Widow at Target a little while ago, I hoped they would continue to restock with new figures that aren't Iron Man (Iron Man already has his own line, stop putting so many Iron Man figures in the Marvel Universe cases!) and on my next visit Ghost Rider was sitting out on the front of one of the pegs. I've been looking for him for a while, so I swooped in on that immediately. The next time I went to Target, they only had a bunch of Iron Man figures and one Red Hulk.

So this is the Johnny Blaze version of Ghost Rider, so his leather outfit isn't as spiky as the more modern version. He's pretty standard as far as Marvel Universe figures go, so fairly decent articulation, and he feels kind of light. There's a spot on the cheek where the paint came off or was mis-applied, but I am okay with pretending that is just hellfire spilling out from his eye. His only accessory is a chain. Too bad he doesn't come with a bike...


  1. Even though he doesn't have a bike, he's still a neat figure. The use of clear orange plastic is superb.

    I wonder - would the Transformers cross-over Ghost Rider bike work with him? I'm not sure what scale it is, though...

  2. Hm, good question! That would be a cool ride for him, if the size was right.
