Steve Trevor

I find it odd that after decades of hearing from toy makers that action figures based on female characters don’t sell as well as those based on male characters, Mattel decided to go for an almost entirely female selection for the Wonder Woman movie wave within the DC Multiverse line.

Original Comic Book Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles

I had not realized how long Playmates has been producing TMNT figures since the re-launch of the franchise via the Nickelodeon cartoon, but the figures I’ll be reviewing today were released as part of the 11th wave of figures in 2014.

Jyn Erso (Eadu)

Even before seeing the Rogue One: A Star Wars Story movie, I was quite excited about getting new toys associated with it, and one of the first I bought is this Sergeant Jyn Erso (Eadu) figure, from Hasbro’s basic 3.75-inch line.

Marvel Legends Walgreen’s Punisher

Truth be told. I should have wrote this before I opened the One:12 Collective Punisher. I didn’t. I’m sorry for that, because they are the same scale there I want to compare them. Which really isn’t fair since there is a 3x price differential.  What I do like about this figure is that it is […]

One:12 Collective The Punisher: Accessories (Part 3)

Okay. This is the everything else post. Mainly what we’re finishing up with are heads, hands, and the stand. To capture the many moods of Frank Castle, Mezco included 3 different heads. One is normal, the second is open mouth yelling and the last is a beat up, end of battle head. One thing I […]

One:12 Collective The Punisher: Weapons (Part 2)

Frank Castle is a bit of an anomaly in a universe where the heroes can shoot webs, have unbreakable skin, or can envelop themselves in flame. He’s just a dude. And a dude fighting hand to hand isn’t going to cut. So The Punisher tends to favor all manner of weapons. Since a good portion […]

One:12 Collective Punisher (Part 1)

I think you guys know by now, I’m normally a 3.75″ collector. It’s what I’ve collected since I was a kid. With The Punisher being one of my favorite characters, I’m always tempted by other versions. I had been eyeing the Sideshow Collectibles version of him last year. Being a 12 inch figure, it was […]

Kotobukiya ArtFX Super Powers Wonder Woman

Okay, here’s the deal. I’m not a Wonder Woman fan. I don’t hate the character, I just don’t know anything about her. I know the basics, I’ve just never really been exposed to many of her stories. Did I watch the Lynda Carter show back…? Well, you know when. Of course, I did. Since then […]

Liv Moore Pop! Vinyl

We really liked Veronica Mars. And well, we liked Walking Dead. So it seemed natural we would give iZombie a shot. Turns out we liked it. There isn’t a lot of merch out there for it, but it’s nice to see things like Pop! Vinyl of the main character Liv Moore.  If you aren’t familiar, […]

When it comes to Star Wars: Rebels action figures, Hasbro has been rather inconsistent in their release. The first few characters were sold within the 2015 Saga Legends assortment, either individually or in 2-packs.
