One of my favorite comedy movies of all time is “Trading Places” with Eddie Murphy and Dan Aykroyd. It just screams 80’s buddy comedy to me. So I thought it was really great to see we are finally getting toys from this film. Taken from one of his last scenes in the film, this is […]

Elder Predator (Takara)

The Elder Predator (MA-15) figure was released back in 2005 as part of Takara’s Alien VS Predator line. The Elder wasn’t as popular as the Scar and Celtic Predators or even the Alien Warrior I reviewed some time ago, but it’s still a very impressive figure.

Ravage (Legends Class)

Let me start by saying that I am not a Transformers fan. I missed the old cartoon and it’s companion toy line by a couple of years and by the time I was eleven …

The Mummy (Toys R Us Exclusive)

I have a thing for Mummies. I don’t know why. I’ve never seen a famous one up close. I’m not from Egypt. That said, I think in my mind the “classic movie” Mummy is one of the most exotic monsters in terrestrial filmdom. I grew up in Northern Michigan with lots of snow, trees, and […]

Blue Spirit

The Blue Spirit is another character from the Last Airbender movie, and probably one of the most versatile in the line, even though he is pretty much a monochrome character.

Read on to see if this action figure is worth your time…

Barnes (Terminator: Salvation)

Summer is here and that usually spells a boom in my collecting, as most stores tend to liquidate the leftover merch from last year. It is a great opportunity to stock up on army builders and to get cheap figures just because they are cheap. One such figure is Barnes, from Playmates’ Terminator: Salvation line.

Aang in Avatar State

Aang in Avatar State

An action figure made by a small company as a tie-in for a movie project inspired by a Nickelodeon cartoon; and the movie was directed, written and produced by someone with a very questionable track record at the box office. Pretty much the definition of long odds, in my book, but How does this toy Aang fare?

Shrek Gingerbread Man Playset

As with much of the current world, the “collectible” world has seen a rise in prices while companies have sought out ways to make things cheaper. Paint ops, articulation and accessories lead the way when it comes to cost cutting measures. McFarlane Toys used to be at the top of the pyramid for what fans […]

Mego Arcturian (3 3/4″)

I remember watching Star Trek (TOS) series in reruns a lot when I was younger. It was on on the weekends and I tried to never miss an episode. While Star Wars was a grand adventure, I remember I had a different view of the Star Trek universe back then. Even then, I related Star […]

Simpsons Movie Homer and Plopper

If you’ve been on TVFT before, you’ll know that I’m a big fan of Playmates World of Springfield series of figures. A good chunk of the comics on the site are WOS. Combine that with the fact that I love the Simpsons for their portrayal of a typical American family. Which one of has not had a Homer Simpson […]

Butch Cassidy

When Paul Newman recently passed away, I remembered I had a figure of him, at least I thought I did. Kenner produced a line of Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid figures, which I had never realized were actually for the prequel (“Butch and Sundance: The Early Days“) with Tom Berenger in the Butch Cassidy role made famous by Newman […]

Ertl Batmobile & Cocoon

I love mail away stuff. I think it started when I first saw the ad for a “Rocket Firing Boba Fett.” I’ve collected box tops, proofs of purchase, UPC and Flag Points. From Crystal Skeletons to Star Wars Survival Kits, I’ve sent for a ton of stuff over the years. I came across the subject of this review and thought […]

Ahoy Mateys! Block figures seem to be all the rage right now. They’re small and cute for the most part. So, why not Pirates of the Caribbean.This set is one of the smaller ones from theMega Blocks line for the second film. I thought I’d take a look at it, and see what their sets are like. […]

Anti-Pesto Gromit

I was really excited when I heard about the new Wallace and Gromit film. I loved the shorts, and really looked forward to seeing a feature length film. When I heard there were going to be new figures, I was ecstatic. Then I heard McFarlane was the company that was making them and I was skeptical. Their […]

Transformers Legends Class Autobot Jazz

I’m not normally one to jump on the band wagon, but I was intrigued a bit with this one. I’ve never been a huge Transformer’s fan. GI Joe was bigger in my house. I’m an Air Force brat, and leaned towards the military things. However, as a kid, we had some kids in grade school with a parent that […]

E.T.

Love it or hate it, you have to admit E.T. the Extra-Terrestrial (1982) was one of the biggest films of its’time. If I had a picture of the E.T. costume my mom made to accompany this review, I would put it in.
