Merle Dixon

It took along time before I became sympathetic to the character of Merle Dixon on The Walking Dead. I’ve got a redneck streak, but it mainly involves duct tape, flannel and a love of deep fried food. I don’t carry the hatred that Merle exhibited from the very start. In the end though, Merle came […]

Elektra

Even though I never really read Daredevil comics growing up, Elektra is one of those secondary characters that kick started the whole Ninjas-Are-Cool trend back in the day so, she was one of the characters I wanted the most to see in action figure form when the Marvel Universe line started.

ARC Commander Blitz shares the same molds for upper legs, torso and upper arms with the regular non-removable helmet clones but his appearance is strikingly different thanks to a number of newly tooled pieces.

Lady Jaye (Retaliation)

I began collecting G.I. Joes rather late in the game. I never got the chance to find several of the characters that made frequent appearances in the cartoons nor the comic books. One of those was Lady Jaye, so I jumped at the chance to add her to my collection as she came out in the G.I. Joe Retaliation line by Hasbro.

Iron Patriot (Pop! Vinyl Bobble Head)

Since I already reviewed War Machine, this shouldn’t come as much of a surprise. Since I saw him for a good price, I really couldn’t pass up getting get the repainted movie version of Iron Patriot. I’m not a huge fan of the colors for a weapon armor, but, he looked pretty cool so I […]

Yeah, this is a rerun. But, its the one that the good folks on the AFB Forum have never been able to crack. Well, not that you would want to crack a tooth.

You Want E.T. Lego? Go Support It!

  I love Lego. I can’t say why, but there is an innocence and cuteness to it that is just works for licensed properties really well. Now, you may or may not be familiar with their Cusoo projects. The idea is fans can make their own projects and submit them. They go through a series […]
