Sub-Zero (Mortal Kombat Klassics)

The other day, I was at a store, perusing the action figure pegs and I came across a 4 inch. Sub-Zero figure that looked substantially different than the one I reviewed not long ago. A closer inspection revealed that Jazwares made another line of MK figures under the “Klassic” moniker, and this was one of them.

Name That…Rocker

Yes, I like hair bands. I blame the 80’s, a mullet and too much hairspray.

Professor X

Released as the 22th figure in Hasbro’s Marvel Universe Series 4, Professor X is a very interesting addition to the line for a couple of reasons.

Anakin Skywalker

Well, as you may recall, back when Hasbro announced a new action figure line devoted to the then new CGI Clone Wars show, one question that popped up every now and then was if there would be figures made from the characters in the show, done in the realistic style.

Jabba The Hutt Statuette

I know, I don’t normally review statues. But, this one of the few that I have. Well, two that I have. This is an Applause statue of Jabba and Leia done in faux bronze. I know these days most of these types of statues come painted. Honestly though, I kind of like the bronze tone. […]

Marvel’s Hawkeye

I wasn’t really expecting to see more of Hasbro’s Avengers line locally. I mean, the things seem to sell at a steady, albeit slow pace, but in my experience the stores in my city rarely order anything after the first wave of movie-related figures up until Christmas. With that in mind, it was very surprising to find Marvel’s Hawkeye hanging there on a peg the last time I went grocery shopping.

Clone Commander Cody (CW7)

It has been quite some time since I bought (or even found) any Clone Wars figure. With Hasbro’s resources stretched thin between all of their lines in production, in 2012 we are not getting as much Clone Wars product as last year and some of the figures shipping in 2012 are re-issued from last year.

Android 2-Pack (SDCC 2012 Exclusive)

As far as phones go, I can’t bring myself to drink the fruit juice. I have an Android phone I love.  So it made sense when I found a vinyl figure of the cute little mascot for Google’s operating system, that I would pick it up. That turned out to be a dangerous path, since […]
