Cobra Commander (Renegades)

I’ve always kind of felt bad for Cobra Commander. He never gets any respect and somebody thought he’d look cool in stirrup pants. But that was the 80’s. In the GI Joe Renegades animated series, we got a pretty good update of the commander. And with that, a new action figure.

Yes, this looks like a bunch of tattered threads. It almost is.

Duke (GI Joe Renegades)

  I’ve never been a huge Duke fan. He just always seemed a little stuck up and bossy to me. I also wasn’t entirely sold on GI Joe: Renegades when it premiered. However, listening to the Justin from GeneralsJoes.com talk about it, I figure I’d give it a second chance. And I was extremely, glad […]

Gambit (Marvel Select)

  If you have read any of my past Marvel reviews, you may have guessed I was a Gambit fan. I’ve reviewed the older Toy Biz Gambit and the Minimates version previously. So it should be no surprise when Figure of the Day offered the Marvel Select one, I’d snap him up. Appearance: This is full […]

Darth Vader and Stromtrooper (Jedi Force)

I was somewhat puzzled when Hasbro announced that they were going to stop making the Galactic Heroes line in favor of the new Jedi Force figures. I was never a big Galactic Heroes collector, but since I ended getting quite a few of them over the years (mostly when there was nothing else Star Wars related to buy at local stores), I kind of expected the line to go on for quite a long time still.

Rex (Space Outfit)

Out of all of the Toy Story characters, Rex is my favorite. Dress him up as an astronaut, and he’s even more awesome. I don’t have a large Toy Story collection. Really, it consists mainly of real world scale versions of the characters. However, Rex being my favorite, has caused me to collect multiple versions […]

GI Joe Targets

I haven’t done as much creative stuff lately, so I thought I’d stretch those skills a bit. I haven’t made a GI Joe Diorama, yet. I was actually thinking a shooting range would be cool. (I was on the rifle team in High School.) One hint: I punched the holes through with a very sharp object with […]

Whip It, Whip It Good….Or Bad

Okay. I know Whiplash came out last year. I’ve put off writing this review for a long time. So long in fact Errex wrote one in the mean time. So as an experiment, I wrote mine without reading his. And, some things we agree on and some things we don’t. So, we are presenting both […]

When the visual checklists for the upcoming Iron Man 2 waves of figures were made public, around summer 2010, I was actually excited by the possibility of getting a figure of Whiplash in this collection.

Whiplash – Iron Man 2

I’ve been putting off writing this for almost a year. Why? Well hopefully by the end you will know. Whiplash is one of just a couple of figures in the Iron Man line with a human face. And I think we can be glad that number is limited. Appearance: Have you ever been really excited […]

Qui-Gon Jinn & Eopie

With all the up coming hype for Star Wars Episode 1 in 3D, I’m hoping we see some Qui Gon love. In the mean time, I guess I’ll tide myself over with this. From last year, this Qui Gon & Eopie was a mail away to fill a gap in some collectors collections. If my […]

Even though I was not blown away by the fourth installment of the Pirates of the Caribbean movies, I admit that I found it entertaining and thus, my disposition towards the associated merchandise was fairly positive.

Cobra Viper

Where the standard Cobra Trooper is more of a facility guard type soldier, the Viper appears to be more front line infantry. And this figure is a pretty cool update to a the classic look. Appearance: The head of the classic Viper is probably the most distinctive part of his uniform and this is a […]
