Tyrion Lannister

One of the more enthralling characters from the Song of Fire and Ice books, and by extension, the Game of Thrones TV series, is Tyrion Lannister.

Groot

Groot

For me, one of the things that made this Groot figure so attractive is the fact that it can be used to serve a wide number of roles, either as a generic Ent, a Forest Elemental or simply as a really big Groot to go along my Marvel Universe figures.

The undead are getting a lot of coverage in media in recent years, thanks in no small part to the groundbreaking visual effects featured in movies and TV series.

Clone Pilot ( Phase I Armor)

One of my favorite action figure molds in the modern Star Wars lines is that of the super articulated Clone Trooper, released by Hasbro way back in 2005 during the heyday of the Revenge of the Sith line.

Daenerys Targaryen

There are so many rich storylines on Game of Thrones, it’s hard to pick a favorite. I have to say I always find myself looking for forward to the Daenerys and Arya scenes the most. Daenerys has a story driven by birth right, revenge, and what she feels is just. It really just draws you […]

Rocket Raccoon

Rocket Raccoon

One thing from the Guardians of the Galaxy movie trailer that really struck me as completely bizarre was seeing the CGI Rocket Raccoon being such a bad-ass. Right there I knew that Hasbro had to make toys of that character and that I would buy them, no questions asked.

Marauder Task Force Kickstarter Figure

I’ve heard a lot of horror stories out there about Kickstarter action figures. Most haven’t even got off the ground. One that did, had a couple little bumps along the way, and is no shipped is the Marauder Task Force figure. This project was helmed by the folks that bring us all those cool weapons […]

Iron Man (Deep Space Armor)

The very first figure I bought from the Guardians of the Galaxy assortment in the Marvel Legends Infinite Series was actually not in the movie at all. It was none other than Iron Man in his Deep Space Armor.

Punisher Pop! Vinyl

I really kind of dig Punisher. Maybe I like to think there is a little badass in me that would stand up to the wrongs of this world no matter the cost. Maybe I like shooting things and wearing black clothes with skulls on them. Either way I couldn’t resist this little guy when I […]

Nova (Marvel Legends)

Since I had already decided that I wanted the Groot BAF, I went on and bought Nova, even though I did not expect the figure to be as good as it turned out to be.

Ever since I saw Revenge of the Sith, the notion of a horde of wookiees charging into battle has held a certain appeal to me.

Drax the Destroyer (Marvel Legends)

Drax the Destroyer may still not be a household name, even after the success of the Guardians of the Galaxy movie, but at the very least his action figure turned out to be quite great.

Chewbacca (Clone Wars)

One interesting aspect of watching the animated Clone Wars TV series was that sometimes an Original Trilogy character would make a cameo on one episode.
