Marvel Legends Walgreen’s Punisher

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, […]

Robin Mystery Mini

A couple of confessions. I didn’t care for most of the Arkham game designs until I started playing the games. Confession two, while I’m a Batman fan, I’ve never been a big fan of Robin. If he’s written well, he’s okay. Most of the time it seems he’s included just to have him there. To […]

Marauder Valkyrie

Kickstarter has provided us with a bounty of great action figures in recent times. These include Marauder’s first Task Force outing. The great thing they did with that KS was to use it to generate the money to buy tooling to create an ongoing source of generic GI Joe style bucks. Their next Kickstarter, no […]

The Wolf

It’s well know I like retro figures and cheap figures. If I find both at the same time, it’s really hard to resist. I found The Wolf from Pulp Fiction at a Tuesday Morning for $3. I almost bought both of them had I was so tickled.  As you may, remember Winston Wolf is called […]
