Name That…Frankenbroc

I’m not a broccoli fan. Broccoli raised from the dead? Not a fan of that either.

AWE Striker

The AWE Striker has been around for a long time. Since 1985 in fact. It’s been repainted several times and is somewhat of a staple of the line. That said, I’ve never owned one until I saw this one at a good price. I was pleasantly surprised when I opened the box. The backdrop folds […]

Lego Minifigure Display

  I recently realized I didn’t have a cool way to display my Lego Minifigures. So, I asked my Dad if he could help out. He does some woodworking and has his own website, Woodbitz.com. His main focus is display and storage racks for bottles and such. (I’m sure there’s some customizers out there that […]

Starkiller

Let me start by saying that I like Star Wars. And I like video games. And, obviously, I also like action figures, so it is pretty much a given that I would have more than a passing interest in whatever exists in the intersection of those three sets.

Night Fox

It seems like these days, any driver or pilot that comes with a vehicle is an after thought. An easy place to cost cut, articulation and accessories for these figures may soon be a thing of the past. However, that wasn’t the case all that long ago. Case in point, Night Fox, the driver that […]

X-23

X-23 was sort of a big deal back when she was released as part of Marvel Universe Series 3, not only because she was a clone of the ever-popular Wolverine, but also because she was developed using an entirely new female body mold.

Obi-Wan Kenobi

Hasbro had given us at least a couple of versions of Jedi Master Obi-Wan Kenobi partially equipped with armor over the years, ever since the character appeared that way in the 2005 Clone Wars animated miniseries directed by Gendy Tartakovsky

Wild Bill Hickok

Mrs. Nerd and I got hooked on HBO’s Deadwood during this past holiday lull in TV programming. We burned through all 3 season. Of course, I blame this on the Final Shot Saloon Podcast. Of course, that would be payback for point out a line of Western Action Figure to the host, Clint. That line […]

One thing I noticed since I started playing the Facebook game Avengers Alliance, is a renewal of my interest for certain characters previously released in the Marvel Universe line by Hasbro that I had initially passed on.
