Deadpool Should be rated…?

I’ve been laughing at all the memes going around about folks wanting Deadpool to have a PG-13 version. I was hanging in there with the comics crowd who were applauding the decision to make it rated R. I get it. They want violence. They want swearing. They want their hero to be the deadly smart […]

Shaggydog (GoT Mystery Mini)

I have became hopelessly addicted to Game of Thrones Mystery Minis from Funko. Blind boxes normally aren’t my thing, but this one really grabbed hold. Today, I’m looking at Shaggydog. Who is Shaggydog you say? Shaggydog is Rickon Stark’s direwolf. The youngest of the Stark clan named his black canine, so it shouldn’t surprise us […]

Kotobukiya ArtFX Super Powers Batman

Alright. I don’t buy statues. I have a couple of things in my collection that might be termed statues, but I didn’t think about them that way when I bought them. However, when Scott recently reviewed the Kotobukiya ArtFX Super Powers Superman, Flash and Green Lantern on the Action Figure Blues Podcast. I found my […]

Has Star Wars Ruined Star Wars For Me?

I had tweeted a reply to the Ginger Prince regarding Star Wars: The Force Awakens the other day. And I realized a couple of things. (If you don’t follow him, @TGP73 is a great gentleman fan of the Star Wars world and a HUGE Admiral Ackbar Fan.) The first thing I realized was I’m just […]

Engineernerd Builds a Gundam Kit Part 2

So my Gunpla kit arrived from Amazon fairly quickly. Oddly, the outside of the box was not shrink wrapped. Everything inside was in a a couple of plastic bags and looked intact. The instructions were at the bottom of the box. I was immediately struck with the number of parts. And wondered what I had […]

Engineernerd Builds a Gundam Kit Part 1

This is a new experience for me. So I thought I would take you guys along on the journey. I think calling these model kits is a bit of a misnomer. A model kit to me is something static. Gundam kits, I’m learning are essential DIY action figures. First, I had to pick a scale […]

Gundam Build Fighters

  Okay, I’ll probably loose some geek cred for this one, but I’m not a huge anime fan. I will even say that at one time I didn’t realize there was difference between the Gundam and Macross worlds. For years, I never delved into either properly. When I have tried an anime here and there […]

Yup. It’s another one people struggled with.   To me, this looks like a manifold for a hydraulic valve. I don’t think it is.
