The first gremlin I got is Lenny, who appears in the second movie and seems to be what one would call a “special” type of Gremlin.

Andalusian Horse

After watching The Hobbit movie last year, I began looking for small ponies to display alongside some of the figures, but I had no luck. I did find, however, an Andalusian horse that I thought would work well as Shadowfax, the horse Gandalf rides in the last couple Lord of the Rings movies.

Private William Hudson

As one of the few Colonial Marines left standing in James Cameron’s Aliens movie. It totally makes sense to me that NECA chose Private William Hudson to stand alongside Corporal Hicks in their Aliens action figure line.

Living Dead Dolls Minis – Walpurgis

I normally don’t have incredible luck pulling variants, but I did with this one. I thought Schitzo the Clown was cool enough to warrant buying some more of these creepy little figures, I went back to the well and pulled the rarest of the case assortment with this variant of Walpurgis. Apparently, this occult witch […]

Dutch (Jungle Extraction)

Right from the start, I knew that I would go for the Jungle Extraction Dutch. Even though Arnold Schwarzenegger appears only during the first third of the movie in this uniform, I think this is the look that better depicts his character.

Claw General Zod

After getting one Superman figure from Mattel’s Man of Steel line, I decided to round up my collection with a more visually interesting character.

Moto Superman

If asked what action figure line was the most disappointing in 2013, it would be hard to come up with any other than Mattel’s 4-inch scale line for the Man of Steel movie.

1942 WLA Flathead Harley Davidson

Well, today I’ll be talking about something a little different, a 1:18 vehicle I found at a local store. The vehicle is a WLA 1942 Flathead Harley Davidson motorcycle, and was produced by Maisto.

Medusa (Lego)

In grade school, we studied mythology in one of my classes. All sorts of mythology from Norse to Greek. I remember during that time begging my parents to take me over to my public library to find books on Greek myths. (I was geeky even back then.) Around the same time Clash of the Titans […]

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. […]

Kili & Fili 2-Pack

Well, with thirteen dwarves in the roster for the movie The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey, manufacturer The Bridge direct had the foresight to offer some of them in two-packs, like Balin & Dwalin or the subjects of today’s review, dwarves Fili & Kili.

Dwalin & Balin 2-Pack

Balin and Dwalin, sons of Fundin are probably two of the most easily identifiable members in the Company of Dwarves led by Thorin Oakenshield. In the movie The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey they are the first two dwarves that show up at Bilbo’s door, and manufacturer The Bridge Direct wisely decided to offer them together in a 2-pack, although I am pretty sure that each would have sold well individually.

Bilbo Baggins & Gollum 2-Pack

Manufacturer The Bridge Direct did a rather unusual thing with their 4-inch line of toys based on the movie The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey. They produced individually carded figures of some of the main characters, but most of these are also offered in 2-packs alongside characters that are not currently available in individual presentation. One such set is the one I’m reviewing today, the one with Bilbo Baggins and Gollum.

Thorin is the leader of the Dwarves that go seeking advise from Gandalf and end up signing up the services of a professional burglar to help them regain their long lost treasure.

The Mummy (Lego Monster Fighters)

I’d passed this Lego set up a couple times. I knew I’d get it eventually, though. Lego and a Mummy? How could I pass it up? The Mummy is a generic mummy in this case. With glowing red eyes, this standard minifigure has risen from a pile of bricks to terrorize the night. As always, […]

Minimate Imhotep

My love of Mummy action figures and movies has been well documented. So, it should come as no surprise, I snatched up the newest Minimate version of Imhotep as soon as I saw him dangling from a peg. I know there are a couple versions of this guy out there. This one appealed to me […]
