Party Noisemaker?

This weapon has a pretty distinct design. That should help identify the correct figure this thing came with. Or will it be a case of mistaken identity?

Rex “The Doctor” Lewis

Ever since Episode One of Star Wars came out, I’ve made an effort to avoid as many spoilers for a film as I can without going out of my way. I really wanted to like “GI Joe: Rise of Cobra” before I saw it. But I had my doubts. As such, I really didn’t get […]

This is one of those things I did, just cause I wanted it for myself. Clone troopers bursting through the screen.  Nothing more, nothing less.

Tsu’tey

Out of the first wave of figures from Mattel’s Avatar toy line, I must say that the Na’vi seem to me to be the most interesting. Among them, is Tsu’tey from the Omaticaya clan.

I think a good number of people will recognize this for what it is. The question is why would an action figure come with one?

Eytukan

The figure that practically sealed the deal for me in regards of picking up more figures from Mattel’s Avatar line was Eytukan, who is the chieftain of the Omaticaya (Bright Flute) clan and father of Neytiri.

These Aren’t the Droids Desktop Wallpaper

Alright, I can’t remember what caused me to want to make this. Sometimes I just get an idea and want to see it through. I really overuse the “These aren’t the droids you’re looking for” line. Ask Mrs. Nerd and my co-workers. Click the image for full size Wallpaper.

Armored Panther w/Sgt. Thunderblast

Normally the amount of suspension of disbelief required for me to accept the existence of an attack helicopter the size of a compact car proves too much, but, What about tanks the size of compact cars?…

For the figure this accessory came with it’s one of the most iconic. I know. It’s not much to look at, but it’s got it where it counts.

Do Kids Use Still Use Library Cards & Card Catalogs?

Mrs. Nerd and I were watching TV recently and both of noticed a card catalog on screen at the same time. We discussed school libraries briefly and moved on. A few days later, I was listening to Jimmy Buffett’s “Fruitcakes” album when I heard the song “Love in the Library.” These two separate events got […]

Totally Tubular

Alright. I’ll be honest if I saw this I’d have no idea what it is or what action figure it came with. It appears to be test tubes. Maybe a mad scientist’s accessory to develop a new addictive drug for the masses? Maybe it’s not test tubes at all.

Yeah. It’s a gun. It has a back pack and a cord that connects them. It might not be hard to figure out what it is. But where did it come from with this color pack?
