Rey Mysterio Deluxe Aggression Series 20

My first impression of the Rey Mysterio figure is that it is massive. Like all of the Deluxe Aggression characters, Rey Mysterio is a fairly big toy, clocking about 7” high and very well articulated.

Virtual Custom “Lost” Palz

Back when the Palisades was still around I started picking up a few of their “Palz” figures. Mainly the Die Hard ones, but a few X-Files and Buffy as well. That led me to create “Virtual Custom” Palz. The main ones were for the series “Lost”. Keep in mind, I did these back in 2005-2006, […]

OMG What is That Shadow?

The shadow for this figure turned out to be a little tougher than I expected. And I expected it to be tough. And yes, this really is a shadow of an action figure.

Shipwreck GI Joe Rise of Cobra

Shipwreck is one of the characters I was really surprised didn’t make the cut for GI Joe: Rise of Cobra. His snarky attitude made him a fan favorite in the animated and comic book versions of Joe. (Flash was the other one I was expecting to see in action in the film.) While the vintage […]

5 Things I Hope Season 6 of “Lost” Answers

Mrs. Nerd and I have watched “Lost” since the premier episode. We got sucked into the story just like that guy standing in front of the jet engine in that episode. We have been watched our favorite characters delve deeper into the mysteries of the Dharma Initiative, island, and the other castaways. With the fifth season […]

Shadow Agent

Some characters do their best work lurking in the shadows. This character is probably pushing the TV & Film Toys name to the limit.

Bulky Shadow

This figure is one of the bulkiest from the line he’s in. He’s a bit gruff, as well.

A Real Stumper

Maybe, Maybe not. I’d have been hard pressed to name this base to a figure. It appears to have had action feature removed before this stump was put into production.

Jawa & Security Droid

Frequent visitors to the site will know that I have a soft spot for Jawas. I think the pint sized scavengers just captured my imagination when I was a kid and didn’t let go. Frequent readers will also know that I like figures that are able to sit. With this most recent Jawa release we […]

Swing Time

What we have here is a pretty nice little set of golf clubs. I can’t believe there haven’t been more figures that have came with golf clubs. Or Caddyshack figures, for that matter.
