Ghost Rider (Bobble Head)

If you heard the episode of the Action Figure Blues Podcast where I talked about getting this guy, you would know that I was excited bout him. Previous to this I hadn’t picked up any of Funko’s offerings. They are cute and all, but I was never in the right place at the right time. […]

Mystery Minion

I’ve been pretty vocal about how I wished there had been more Minion merchandise available from the first Despicable Me film. Mrs. Nerd and I both love them. Well, they certainly made up for it this time around. Take Minions and blind bag them? Yeah, I’m in. Stuart is the first one I’m looking at. […]

Joe Con 2013: Part 3

There were a fair number of GI Joe informational booths at Joe Con. I really have a lot of respect for these folks. They weren’t there selling anything, but rather there to promote the hobby and provide information. Two very cool sites were there that I had a chance to talk to: Yo Joe and […]

Name That…Mushroom Cloud

I don’t think kids today get a sense of big the threat of nuclear war felt back in the 70’s and 80’s during the Cold War.

Kyle Latino Sketches GI Joe

I’m going to break into my Joe Con posts to show off something I’m really happy with. Every year at our local comic con, I typically ask Kyle Latino for a pulp character sketch. He really has the style down and gets those characters, so they are always fantastic. This year I changed it up, […]

Part of me wonders if we are heading to a point where politicians will blame gun violence on action figure accessories.

Lego Gandalf Polybag

I have to hand it to Lego. They’ve realized that there are a group of collectors out there primarily interested in the minifigures and have given us ways to get primary characters without having to buy a huge set. This Gandalf came poly bagged around Easter and didn’t hang around too long. Gandalf is much […]

War Machine (Iron Man 3 Assemblers)

I’d been avoiding Iron Man 3 figures pretty much since they came out. Since they seemed to be lacking most of what I’d liked about the Iron Man 2 line, they were a pretty easy pass. I had picked up something in passing, War Machine was only available in the “Assemblers” version, the larger interchangeable limbs […]

Ood (Titans Vinyl Figure)

  I don’t know when it happened, but I’m turning into a blind packed figure junkie. I just kind of dig the little ones. When I was a local store had the Doctor Who Titans figures, I decided to get one. I knew there was an Ood, which is a character Mrs. Nerd and I […]
