Pyro Marvel Legends Series 13 (Onslaught) Action Figure by Toy Biz


Chris: Oye Pyro !!! Te gustaría venir este fin de semana a una barbacoa con mis compañeros de oficina... 

•• Pyro: Lo siento Chris, pero tengo que flamear unos budines en casa de mi suegra HAHAHA !!!... 

El dueño de este blog es demasiado trivial, pero un poco de idiotez es una excelente terapia contra el estrés, no lo creen ???... 

Mi invitado para hoy, resultó ser un personaje bastante ambiguo, pues aunque es reconocido ampliamente como un villano, su historia no ha estado exenta de actos de heroísmo.

De las mentes de Chris Claremont y John Byrne surgió Pyro en 1981; comparado con otros heroes/villanos del mundo Marvel, su aparición es bastante reciente. 


Jhon Allerdyce, un australiano originario de Sidney, que se desempeñaba como periodista y novelista, descubre que es un mutante con la habilidad de manipular el fuego, si bien no puede generarlo por sí mismo. 

Su encuentro con la mutante Mystique, marcaría su destino, pues de allí en adelante pasó a hacer parte de numerosos grupos de villanos como: the Brotherhood of Evil Mutants y en historias alternativas, del grupo del supervillano Exodus o el grupo de ninjas asesinos conocido como Hellfire Club. 

Sin embargo, en la historia principal de este personaje, luego de contraer una mortal enfermedad producida por el Legacy Virus y antes de fallecer, rescata al senador Robert Kelly, lo cual hizo que éste último decidiera buscar la paz mundial entre humanos y mutantes.
 

Esta es otra figura de un colega, que logró pasar mis filtros de selección y ahora la publico para el deleite de mis visitantes. 

Se trata de una pieza de 6" de alto, con el esquema de color original del personaje, muy brillante, llamativo y limpio, muy buenos acabados y trabajo de pintura, 33 puntos de articulación e incluye un cómic de 32 páginas y la parte inferior del tronco de Onslaught. 

Estas series están descontinuadas en la actualidad y Hasbro fabrica varias series de Marvel Legends, pero sus características son diferentes a estas de Toy Biz. Por eso, si alguien vé una de estas piezas disponibles por ahí, no debe dudar mucho en adquirirlas, en serio no se arrepentirá...

ENGLISH

"Chris: Hey Pyro !!! Would u like to come to a barbecue with my office mates... 

•• Pyro: I’m sorry Chris, but i have to flamming some puddings in my mother-in-law’s house" LOLOLOLL !!!... 

The owner of this blog is too trivial, but a bit of idiocy is an excellent therapy for stress, don’t you think so ???... 

My guest for today, proved a rather ambiguous character, although he’s widely recognized as a villain, his story has not been free from acts of heroism.

From the minds of Chris Claremont and John Byrne came Pyro in 1981; compared with other heroes/villains from the Marvel’s world, his appearance is quite recent. 


Jhon Allerdyce, an australian originally from Sidney, who worked as a journalist and novelist, discovers that he’s a mutant with the ability to manipulate fire, though he cannot generate it by himself. 

His encounter with the mutant Mystique, would mark his fate, as thereafter went onto be part of many groups of villains like: the Brotherhood of Evil Mutants and in alternative stories, of the supervillain Exodus’ group or the group of ninja murderers known as Hellfire Club. 

However, in the main story of this character, after he contracts a deadly disease caused by the Legacy Virus and before his death, he rescues the senator Robert Kelly, which makes the latter decides to seek for the world’s peace between humans and mutants.

This is another figure from a colleague that passed my filters of selection and now I publish it for the delight of my visitors. 


This piece is 6" high, with the original color scheme of the character, very brilliant, flashy and clean, with very nice finishing and paint job, 33 points of articulation and includes a 32-page comic and the bottom trunk of Onslaught. 

These series were discontinued and Hasbro now produces several series of Marvel Legends, but their features are different from those of Toy Biz. So if someone sees one of these pieces available out there, should not hesitate too much into acquiring them, seriously will not regret it...

to LEon:

so curious u r, dun u ??? the process is a lil’ long, i hav to search a pic with fire, then i have to separate in other layer & siluet one flame & giv it some transparency... then some edition & finally i copy this layer in my Pyro pic to put in its rigth place, i modified the colour gamma to resemble the backgroud colour, some texture effects & ¡voilá!... all the process was made in Photoshop =) i guess is all clear kjakakjakakjakjkakajkjka uhmmm myb not, but that’s the answer...=PPPP

Now I remebered who Pyro is, the thing his carrying is a flamethrower right? "Toasty", Love the effect on the pic

btw that hair is enough to make a firebat wet his pants^^

chrismandesign said...

yep Gunstray, that’s a flamethrower... the original Pyro can’t generate fire by himself (in other alternative stories/Marvel universes, he can do that & is also almost immune to fire attacks against him...) THX for ur compliment on my photoexperiments =))))
