Havok

One thing you’ll notice shortly after starting reading comics, is how much alike the storylines are when compared to soap operas. You get betrayals, long lost relatives, amnesia and people that just won’t stay

I have mixed feelings about the Star Wars Expanded Universe. Other than the videogames I have personally played, I consider most of it to be little more than professionally written fan-fiction and thus, easy to dismiss.

Sgt. Airborne

Airborne is one my favorite of the original GI Joe team members. I can’t really say why, but I have an idea. Most of his original contemporaries were highly specialized, and slightly over the top. Airborne, or Sgt. Airborne in this release, is fairly normal looking as far as soldiers go. My vintage Airborne spent […]

Iron Man Mark 1 – Iron Man 2 (Comic Version)

This wasn’t a figure I had planned on getting. If anything, I planned on getting the movie version. However, after finishing Essential Iron Man Volume 1, I changed my mind. I’d never really been an Iron Man fan. I’d be lying if I said the movie didn’t have anything to do with it. Of course, […]

Is NBC’s “The Cape” just “Diet Spawn”?

There just seemed to be something familiar to me about “The Cape” that I couldn’t put my finger on. Then it hit me, the show was like the “lite” version of Spawn.

Thi-Sen (Clone Wars)

For me, one of the most interesting episodes in the second season of Clone Wars was Trespass, were we get to see new environments and more importantly, new character models developed for the CGI series.

Storm Shadow (Arctic Assault)

Arctic Assault Storm Shadow was released in 2009 as part of wave 3 of Hasbro’s G.I. Joe: The Rise of Cobra toy line. Even though the name is somewhat misleading, Storm Shadow did appear in the movie dressed (or undressed) like this in the movie, while in the arctic Cobra base, so technically, so the Artic Assault moniker is correct.

Captain Britain

For some reason, I have always had a certain fascination with flag-costumed superheroes, and Marvel Comics is the only big publisher I know of that can blatantly rip-off the color scheme of any flag and turn it into a striking costume.

Admiral Ackbar

You know in the last few years it seems Admiral Ackbar has been gaining in popularity. I don’t know if it’s people finally are seeing him has a brilliant strategist or Sheldon Cooper’s excellent mimicry. I’m glad for the aquatic admiral. I have to say I’ve always kind of liked Ackbar. He’s one of the […]

For the new TRON Legacy movie, Spin Master managed to deliver a pretty decent line up of figures in the 4 inch scale range but even though most of the figures are actually pretty good…

Ripper (Dreadnok)

Ripper is the first Dreadnok in my small GI Joe collection. I just never really understood them. They are essentially an Aussie motorcycle gang. I’m sure they were styled after the baddies in the Mad Max series of films. It’s not that they aren’t entertaining, but other than a diversion what military purpose would they […]
