Lil Bombshells Hawkgirl

So, I was maybe a little luke warm on Harley Quinn in this line. I had a slow week toy hunting, and bought a second blind can. I got Hawkgirl. Now, I really like the Hawkgirl Bombshell statue. She’s exudes a lot of fun. To start with the scale and style match Harley. You can […]

Selina Kyle Gotham Pop! Vinyl

I know Fox’s Gotham isn’t for all the Batman fans out there. I was skeptical at first, but the show won me over. This is Jim Gordon’s story for the most part. Once you kind of put yourself in an “Elseworlds” frame of mind, you can accept it. It helps that Mrs. Nerd has enjoyed it as […]

Lil’ Bombshells Harley Quinn

You may have heard me review on Harley on Episode 232 of the Action Figure Blues podcast. Obviously, this will be similar, but with pictures. The Lil’ Bombshells are a vinyl mini figure take on very popular Bombshell property. I’ve came very close to getting some of the statues, but I’m not really a statue guy. […]

Batman – Funko Mystery Mini

It seems like these days, I either buy something like a Figuarts Kamen Rider or something basic like a Mystery Mini. While I like the quality and representations of the SH Figurarts line, Mystery Mini’s are fulfilling my toy hunting desires. This one is no exception. I was standing in line at Wal-Mart and saw […]

Puppet – Five Nights at Freddy’s Mystery Mini

As if your Chuck E. Cheese style nightmares weren’t already full, Five Nights at Freddy’s 2 added a puppet. And actually, I think his Funko Mystery Mini form may be scarier than the game version. In the game, the puppet is a tall, elongated limbed thing. Here it almost reminds me of a cross between […]

Kamen Rider Specter

I realized recently that while I’ve obtained a bunch of SH Figuarts Kamen Rider figures, I’ve never reviewed any of them on the site. I figured the older stuff could wait, so I would check out a newer release. I recently got both of the main Riders from Kamen Rider Ghost, so today I’m looking […]

I read recently that if a giraffe drank a cup of coffee, it would be cold by the time it got to the bottom of its’ neck. Why would we need to know this?

Non-hockey fans probably don’t realize there is a a guy in a little box behind the hockey goal. His job is to turn on a light when the puck crosses the line.

Okay. I’ve never played the game Five Nights at Freddy’s. Sorry. I will one of these days. I’ve watched a couple of videos, and well, it kinda creeps me out. If you are like me and haven’t played it, it’s a horror survival game of sorts. You are a security guard at a knock off […]

So there is this cute little Yorkie I follow on Facebook named Misa Minnie. She’s a smart little therapy dog. Since the Nerd household has three Yorkies, we are fans. And cute dog pictures always make me smile. One of Misa’s favorite toys is Bear Bear. Now, I spent some time looking at Bear Bear […]
