Deadpool (Marvel Super Hero Mashers)

Deadpool (Marvel Super Hero Mashers)

The Marvel super Hero Mashers line has to be one of the weirdest concepts Hasbro has put out there in quite a while. The idea of mixing and matching pieces from several of the more iconic Marvel superheroes to form a hybrid is one that at first sight may appeal mostly to the youngest of children.

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.

Droids and aliens are just a couple of the things you can count on Hasbro doing right, when it comes to Star Wars action figures. We have seen them make toys out of incomplete puppets seen briefly in crowd scenes, from way back in the Original Trilogy days.

Name That…Giraffe

I read recently that if a giraffe drank a cup of coffee, it would be cold by the time it got to the bottom of its’ neck. Why would we need to know this?

First Order Snowtrooper (Value Series)

The First Order Snowtrooper seems to be made using the exact same digital files used for the 3.75-inch version, with some tweaks done to fit in the even more reduced articulation scheme

Donatello (TMNT2: Out of the Shadows)

To be frank, I had to struggle to accept the updated look for these reptiles from the previous Michael Bay movie, but for the sequel, they seem to have dialed back a little bit the gritty, urban styling.

Batman – Funko Mystery Mini

Batman – Funko Mystery Mini

While I like the quality and representations of the SH Figurarts line, Mystery Mini’s are fulfilling my toy hunting desires. This one is no exception. I was standing in line at Wal-Mart and saw […]

In the game, the puppet is a tall, elongated limbed thing. Here it almost reminds me of a cross between […]
