Nick Fury (Pop! Vinyl Bobble Head)

Nick Fury (Pop! Vinyl Bobble Head)

As you may know, I’m bald. I’m also a bit angry. So when I saw the Nick Fury Pop! Vinyl, I couldn’t pass him up. For a fairly small figure, he captures Fury’s attitude pretty well. The two tiny fists of fury are balled up making him look like he’s itching for a fight. All […]

After getting all four of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, I found myself craving some more of those toys. After a quick inspection to the stock available at my local stores, I decided to go for the one that seemed to be the less abundant in the first series of figures by Playmates.

This guy looks like he has a Yellow Angry Bird for a head to me.

Name That…Holy Metal, Batman!

Oh dear, I’ve hit bottom when I’m quoting a Batman movie for a title for one of these.

If asked what action figure line was the most disappointing in 2013, it would be hard to come up with any other than Mattel’s 4-inch scale line for the Man of Steel movie.

Aayla Secura is one of the few characters in the prequels that had always come out looking gorgeous in action figure form.

Phil Robertson

Well, I’m sure if you read the other Duck Dynasty figure reviews, you saw this coming. Phil is the fourth figure in the series and really one of the essential ones. Especially, if you consider he’s the one that founded Duck Commander. Appearance: Phil’s appearance is much more like Uncle Si’s. On the show, Phil […]

Cyber Ninja (Retaliation)

The Cobra Cyber Ninja is not a terrible concept, but execution leaves something to be desired. The Cyber ninja wears bulky armored vests over a very generic body sculpt. In fact, the whole figure is kitbashed from various sources, most notably the Rise of Cobra EliteViper, with a head taken from some vehicle driver and the legs from the wave 1 version of Storm Shadow.

War Machine (Pop! Vinyl Bobble Head)

I’ll say it. I prefer the War Machine armor over the Iron Man armor. No, I’m not saying war is the solution to things. I just think it makes more sense. Of course, it’s hard to be warlike when you are stylized as a bobble head. Fan’s of Funko will not be surprised by his […]

Lieutenant Thire (Clone Wars)

Well, today I’ll be reviewing Clone Lieutenant Thire, from the Clone Wars gift set released back in 2011. Lieutenant Thire had already been released both as a single carded figure (2009) and in a two-pack with another member of his team (2010), but since those releases are long gone now, I had to get a boxed set to get him.

Dalek (Doctor Who Titans)

Exterminate! I couldn’t have the Doctor running around with at least one Dalek. I ended up with two. I was actually trying for a Tardis and a Dalek, but I’m not going to complain. I was trying to feel for something that was big and bulky in the Doctor Who Titans boxes. You can almost […]

Well, today I’ll be talking about something a little different, a 1:18 vehicle I found at a local store. The vehicle is a WLA 1942 Flathead Harley Davidson motorcycle, and was produced by Maisto.
