Scout Predator

Ever since I wetted my beak into NECA’s Predator figures, I wanted to get the original Predator from the first film, or at least a passable approximation, and this Scout Predator from Series 6 fits the bill perfectly.

Hulk & Thor (Playskool Heroes)

As I have repeated several times, some character designs work well within the Playskool format, while others don’t really lend themselves to the conversion, and in this set we get to see an example of each.

Stormtrooper (Black Series)

It would be hard to argue that the most sought after figure in Hasbro’s third wave of figures from the 6-inch Star Wars Black Series is the Stormtrooper

2014 Year in Review

Collecting-wise, 2014 was a very diverse year for me, although unfocused might be the better way of describing it.

Of course, you can tell this AIM Scientist does not appear in the film just by looking at the decidedly comic book-inspired design.

Ultimate Goblin

Well, after getting all of the figures in the Spider-Man Marvel Legends Infinite Series, I ended up with more than enough pieces to build the Build-A-Figure, which is none other than the Ultimate’s version of the Green Goblin.

Slave Leia (Black Series)

I never quite got the reason Hasbro decided to make this the first version of Princess Leia to appear as part of their Star Wars Black Series 6-inch figure line.

Toxin

Toxin is another of those characters I knew almost nothing about prior to buying the figure. In fact, just by the look of him, I had assumed he was yet another Spider-Man foe, but as it turns out, he is actually one of the good guys despite his rather monstrous visage.

Spider-Girl is one of those characters I really know nothing about, but the visual aspect of the figure was enough of an encouragement for me to pick it up on sight.

Desert Troopers (Call of Duty)

Well after dabbling into the Megabloks Call of Duty line with the Drone Attack set, I really wanted to pick up a troop builder set, so to keep things consistent I went for the one with the desert troopers. Set #06825 Desert Troopers contains 146 pieces, of which at least 90 are made up by […]

Altaïr Ibn-La’Ahad

I’ve said it before. I don’t typically play video games until they are couple of years old. I’m not a serious enough gamer to pop down money on a game I may or may not like. I used to rent most games before I would buy them. So late last year I picked up a […]
