Deadpool (Marvel Super Hero Mashers)

Name That…Black Rocket

Seem like when I was a kid, everyone had some sort of toy rocket. Astronaut stuff was everywhere. I miss that.

Finn (Jakku)

Ever wondered what would a First Order Stormtrooper wear underneath all the armor? Well, apparently they go about with black cargo pants and long-sleeve T-shirts, as attested by this Finn (Jakku) action figure.
