I can say that I wouldn’t have had a guess at this one. Good luck!

Is it a walking stick? A crutch? A robot leg?

Marauder Pistols

I fear I’m becoming addicted to all the fine items over at Marauder. There were a couple of new pistols in the just recently released series 6 from them. This made me think it was a perfect time to gather up some hand guns and try and see what I thought of them all. Tactical […]

GI Joe Magazine (Fall 88)

I will be 100% honest. I really only picked this up because I liked the cover art.  Well, what I was really hoping was there was a story in the magazine related to the cover art. I never actually knew this magazine existed. In the pre-internet days, it seemed like every property would do something […]

Mr. Fantastic & Dr. Doom Minimates

I’ve said before that I’m not a huge Fantastic Four fan, yet I bought some more FF Minimates. I’ve always like Dr. Doom, and he’s what sold me on getting this marked down set. Mr. Fantastic: You may remember that not all that long ago I reviewed the blind bagged MegaBloks Mr. Fantastic. I was […]

I hate that I have to wear a belt with my cargo shorts so I can carry my phone.

Cobra Trooper (Dollar General)

Out of all the Dollar General figures this one might be the most surprising. A generic Cobra Trooper in black. Seems simple enough. But the execution here is pretty darn good. Appearance: Where the black Cobra Commander looks formal, the black on the basic trooper makes him look like an elite guard or a night […]

SCCC Spotlight: Dave Wachter

There were 2 things that caught my eye as I walked into the Summit City Comic Convention, first was a large cardboard standup of Captain America, which unfortunately had a note tacked to it “sold” the other was a intricately detailed sketch of a World War II era Red Skull. As I perused artist alley […]

Duke (Dollar General)

Love him or hate him, you can’t deny Duke has a recognizable name as far as GI Joe is concerned. Which is probably why this figure bears his name. However, my guess is he will find his way into most people’s displays as nameless green shirt. Appearance: If I had seen this figure without a […]

Jar Jar Binks (Movie Heroes)

I feel bad for Jar Jar. Haters have used him so often as a symbol of what they don’t like in the prequels, he hardly ever gets any new merchandise. From my memory, it’s been a long time since we’ve seen a movie version of him in action figure form. Appearance: I was excited to […]
