Calibos

Calibos

I realize the original Clash of the Titans film, may not be everyone’s cup of tea, but I love Ray Harryhausen’s stop motion stuff.

Walking Dead Hospital Doors

Walking Dead Hospital Doors

I’ve been curious about the Walking Dead building set from McFarlane for a while now. I tried to get one of the figure packs at Wal-Mart recently, and well, was denied. (Documented in an AFB Podcast Red Card!) So when I saw the Hospital Door set, my curiosity finally met a price point I could […]

Batman w/Underwater Gear (Imaginext)

Batman w/Underwater Gear (Imaginext)

If there is one thing the Imaginext line has no shortage of, it has to be Batman figures. Seriously, you can go shopping all-year round and you will always find at least two versions of the Caped Crusader on the store shelves.

Jamie Lannister (GoT Mystery Mini)

Jamie Lannister (GoT Mystery Mini)

Warning in advance. The Jamie Lannister Mystery Mini from Funko’s Game of Thrones series 2 line has some later season spoilers. Nothing major, but if you are in season 1 or 2 in viewing, proceed at your own risk. When he starts, Jamie Lannister is a but of a douche. I hated him and was […]

Name That…Coat

Name That…Coat

I own three winter coats. Two are leather and the zippers are jammed. The other has buttons. One of the buttons came off this week.

Name That…Red Rag

Name That…Red Rag

I kind of prefer red shop rags. They don’t look as dirty as white ones with grease on them.

Catwoman w/Catcycle (Imaginext)

Given how scarce female characters tend to be in most pre-school lines, I brought this Catwoman w/Bike set home with me and now I’ll review her.
