Jakks Pacific Men In Black (MIB) 3 Agent J & K.....

Agent J & Agent K_MIB

I was never really interested to get these 3.75" action figures in the first place as it was ridiculously priced at almost USD18 here in Malaysia....no s**t! I truly enjoyed the MIB:3 movie (Josh Brolin deserves an action figure!) but I was flabbergasted to find out that the action figures would cost and arm and a leg. So I waited, with a fool's hope that one day TRU or some other retailers would finally mark them down as they are (still) cluttering retail aisles everywhere. I was right, as I finally found these at just USD3 each (well USD5 if you wanna go with the 'deluxe sets' that came with the 'agent gears' i.e. the Neuralyser and the Noisy Cricket). These actually 'transform' into vehicles for the action figures but I wasn't too bothered with those features.

I decided to go with the 'deluxe sets' anyway as I wanted to get these gears for my son (who goes around in his sunglasses and introducing himself as Agent J!). He was obviously overjoyed when I gave these to him!

Anyway, coming back to the figures, I think the reduced price would definitely encourage more collectors to pick multiples of J and K for customising purposes. Their bodies are pretty generic looking and I reckon some simple head swaps with your GI Joes, Star Wars or Marvel Universe figures would give you endless customising opportunities. An immediate custom figure comes to my mind.....cough...*Agent Coulson*....cough!

THE REBEL'S VERDICT: HIGHLY recommended at these price points! In fact, I'm thinking of getting more to create my own army of movie S.H.I.E.L.D agents!
