TVFT’s Name That…Rocket Pack

Ever since Buck Rogers took off to the skies on the radio, jet packs have had a place in fans hearts. James Bond even used one. But who used this one? (I know who’s it looks like, but…..)

This guy looks like half monkey. Of course, looks can be deceiving.

TVFT’s “Name That…” – Up Against a Wall

We all hit the wall now and then. But very few action figures come with wall sections. Who did this piece of wall come with?

Don’t Play Games with Your Money, Get the Clinch Wallet

It’s not very often that I get to help my wife with her website. She’s very self-sufficient, and way smarter about the things she works on than I am. That being said, I was really excited when she asked if I could do a review for her. Turns out this one was a guy thing. […]

TVFT’s Name That…Props to My Peeps

I know the first thought is “Inspector Gadget”. That would be incorrect. And also way to easy.

Malakili Madness

When Errex sent in his review of the new version of Malakili, I thought it would be a great chance to look back at the other versions, as well. Considering his limited screen time, it’s pretty amazing this overweight zoo keep has had three figures. Check them all out: Current Version POTF2 Version Vintage Version

Malakili (Rancor Keeper POTF2)

In the nineties, Hasbro decided that the time was right to bring Star Wars figures back to the world. In hindsight, that was probably a great decision. The original Star Wars generation had reached an age where they had disposable income and were feeling nostalgic for their childhood. At this point Power of the Force […]

Rancor Keeper (Kenner)

Ironically, Kenner’s Star Wars figures are what started my figure collection back when I was wee Nerd. However, I’ve never reviewed a vintage figure on the site. I’ve review other vintage stuff, but never a Kenner 3 3/4″ figure. To continue the Rancor Keeper theme, I decided he’d be the first. You all know him. […]

Work Attire Homer Simpson Virtual Custom

This is my favorite Homer Simpson figure that Playmates never made. I’m not sure why they didn’t either. There were a number of standard white shirted Homer’s with slight head variations, but not this one. The head is a basic Homer head. The body is from the Donut Head Homer from one of the Treehouse […]

Bundle of Joy

I hate taking pictures of white stuff on a white background. For that reason, I don’t do a ton of Stormtrooper reviews.  It’s also why Gordie Howe was shot on a blue background.

Iron Man Mark II – Iron Man 2

So, What can be said about the Mk.2 armor? The easiest thing is to simply say this is a repaint of the exact same mold used for the Mk.3 armor (and that would be nothing but the truth), although that wouldn’t do this figure justice.

My sources obtained this figure for me. However, I’m not exactly sure what it is. I’ve got an idea, but what can TVFT’s faithful readers come up with?

Star Wars “Phone Call in Senate” (E.T. Battle Pack) – April Fool’s 2010

I’ve been emailing back and forth with a guy in Hong Kong for a couple of weeks regarding a couple of  foreign release only items for my collection. After seeing my email and couple of emails, he sent me a question I was shocked by. He asked if I wanted to see a picture of the […]
