Dwalin the Dwarf Heroclix

If you have been listening to the Action Figure Blues Podcast, you may have heard me hand out an infamous AFB Red Card to the Dark Knight Rises Heroclix. I figured after that, I’d give them a second chance. That and when I saw “The Hobbit” package at the register it was an impulse buy. […]

I love stop motion animation. I just do. I also dig scary movies new and old. Nightmare Before Christmas is a blend of all of those things. To fill the craving people have for merchandise for the film, Jun Planning put out a series of small boxed mini figures. If I was going to pick […]

Cosmic Axe Chitauri

Well, the Chitauri were the alien invaders that Iron Man and his buddies fought in the movie The Avengers. Since this was an alien race developed for the movie, their design was kept in secret to the last minute

Grapple Blast Black Widow

One of the characters I had been expecting for quite some time for Hasbro to make an action figure of was the one played by Scarlet Johansson in both the Iron Man 2 and The Avengers movies. I’m talking about Natalia Romanova, a.k.a Black Widow.

Ultra.Poseable Spider-Man (Movie Series)

Even though Spider-Man toys are not uncommon at toy aisles, most of what I see isn’t too exciting either. The first wave of action figures released for the upcoming The Amazing Spider-Man movie didn’t deviate at all from the design approach we had seen since the Fiercest Foes of Spider-Man started a couple of years ago, consisting on mostly made-up costumes with outlandish color pallettes.

Batman (Caped Crusader)

For a long time, I’ve avoided buying Batman figures. Most are done in either an animated style or in a scale other than 3 3/4″. I don’t have anything against other scales, just really wanted a Dark Knight that could stand among GI Joe, Hellboy, and Marvel movie figures and not look out of place. […]

Tomar-Re (Battle Shifters)

Well, after seeing them on clearance for a few weeks, I eventually got to buy one of the “Deluxe” figures from Mattel’s Green Lantern 4-inch action figure line. Only they are not really Deluxe, neither in name nor value. This version of Tomar-Re was released as part of the Battle Shifters sub-line. In this format, you get one action figure and one big transforming accessory.

Green Man

Well, one of the reasons that pulled me towards Mattel’s Green Lantern 4-inch figures was the varied alien characters in the initial assortments. One thing I’ve learned after years of collecting several 1/18-scale figures is that you can never have too many aliens (or monsters), and once these figures started getting on clearance, I didn’t hesitate to pick up some of them.

Hal Jordan (Maximum Charge)

In some of my other Green Lantern reviews, I commented on how glad I was that Mattel had developed unique sculptures for each of the characters made into 4-inch action figures for their Green Lantern movie line. However, there is one instance where this statement does not apply.

Well, one thing about clearance sales is that usually, what you find there are the obscure secondary characters that no one really cares about. However, with the way Mattel handled the Green Lantern 4 inch figure line, it is actually very feasible to score even the main protagonist at rock-bottom prices.

It is hard to understand the reasoning behind Mattel’s Green Lantern 4 inch line design. The first thing that comes to mind is that they are cheap and they wanted to maximize their earnings by developing a line that was clearly a throwback to a time were consumers were more naive and toys were just for children.

Other than Blackbeard, the one figure I was completely sure I’d get from Jakks Pacific’s Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides line was the pirate’s daughter, Angelica.

Rex (Space Outfit)

Out of all of the Toy Story characters, Rex is my favorite. Dress him up as an astronaut, and he’s even more awesome. I don’t have a large Toy Story collection. Really, it consists mainly of real world scale versions of the characters. However, Rex being my favorite, has caused me to collect multiple versions […]

Even though I was not blown away by the fourth installment of the Pirates of the Caribbean movies, I admit that I found it entertaining and thus, my disposition towards the associated merchandise was fairly positive.

Kilowog is one of the more popular member of the Green Lantern Corps, and that popularity pretty much guarantees that he’d have figures made of him whether in the comic inspired style or in the movie accurate incarnation.

Harvester (Terminator: Salvation)

The Harvester is huge in terms of 1:18 scale toys, measuring 16” tall and almost as wide. Even thought the toy is actually underscaled compared to it’s movie counterpart, it is still quite an imposing toy …

Captain Jack Sparrow

Pirates of the Caribbean is sailing back into theaters this summer, and with it some new action figures. For the previous 2 films, the figures were brought to us by Zizzle, this time around they come to us courtesy of Jakk’s Pacific. After their Mummy Returns figures, I wasn’t very hopeful. What a better way […]

For all intents and purposes, Mattel’s mishandling of the DC Universe license has pretty much left the Infinite Heroes 3.75 inch line in limbo, and that is a shame, because their figure designs were heading in the right track when the plug was pulled.

Harry Potter Bust Up

This is one of those things I’ve had for awhile and just never got around to reviewing. I figured with the DVD for the latest film coming was reason enough to take a look at it. It also doesn’t hurt that the Borders I got this exclusive at is now closing. Gentle Giant’s Bust Ups […]
