First Order Snowtrooper

First Order Snowtrooper

One aspect I really enjoyed from Episode VII was the variety of environments visited by the heroes, from the arid wastes of Jakku to the alpine ranges of Starkiller Base. And of course, they encountered a suitable array of enemies on each one.

Nien Nunb (Episode VII)

Following my affinity for Star Wars aliens and droids, I was particularly happy to see Nien Nunb return to the screen in Star Wars: The Force Awakens. Of course, he was still used in a minor role but it was good to see him still on duty and even better to know Hasbro would make a new action figure of him.

Hassk Thug

In many ways, the seventh movie in the Star Wars saga felt somewhat like a rethread of themes we knew from the previous two trilogies. Among other things, we got to see desert planets, immense weapons of mass destruction and last but not least, a place where the most disparate creatures hung out together while relaxing and having a drink.

Lil Bombshells Hawkgirl

So, I was maybe a little luke warm on Harley Quinn in this line. I had a slow week toy hunting, and bought a second blind can. I got Hawkgirl. Now, I really like the Hawkgirl Bombshell statue. She’s exudes a lot of fun. To start with the scale and style match Harley. You can […]

Iron Spider vs Electro

I was shopping for groceries the other day when a bright flash of color caught my eye behind the counter. It was the Iron Spider vs Electro 2-pack from the Playskool Marvel superheroes line by Hasbro.

UGV Drone (Call of Duty)

UGV stands for Unmanned Ground Vehicle and the thing that sets this model apart from the previous drone set, is that this time around the drone seems better suited to urban warfare scenarios.

Selina Kyle Gotham Pop! Vinyl

I know Fox’s Gotham isn’t for all the Batman fans out there. I was skeptical at first, but the show won me over. This is Jim Gordon’s story for the most part. Once you kind of put yourself in an “Elseworlds” frame of mind, you can accept it. It helps that Mrs. Nerd has enjoyed it as […]

Lil’ Bombshells Harley Quinn

You may have heard me review on Harley on Episode 232 of the Action Figure Blues podcast. Obviously, this will be similar, but with pictures. The Lil’ Bombshells are a vinyl mini figure take on very popular Bombshell property. I’ve came very close to getting some of the statues, but I’m not really a statue guy. […]

One thing you can always count on in a Star Wars movie is that you’ll see a lot of aliens doing pretty mundane tasks, adding to the plausibility of the fictional universe, as it were.

Greedo (Star Wars Mashers)

Hasbro started production of Star Wars Mashers action figures shortly after the Marvel ones came out and even though the Deadpool Masher figure helped me to overcome my initial revulsion towards this whole concept, I was not too keen on buying any more until they came up with the subject of today’s review, the Greedo Masher action figure.

Finn (Jakku)

Ever wondered what would a First Order Stormtrooper wear underneath all the armor? Well, apparently they go about with black cargo pants and long-sleeve T-shirts, as attested by this Finn (Jakku) action figure.

AT-AT Microfighter (LEGO)

The AT-AT (All Terrain Armored Transport) is one of the more memorable vehicles from the Star Wars movies and even though I never got one as a kid, toy companies have been producing different versions suitable for any kind of space requirements one would have.

Raphael (TMNT2: Out of the Shadows)

Even though the first figure I got from the latest Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles :Out of the Shadows movie was not quite what I expected, I decided to give this line another chance and got me the movie version of Raphael.

Droids and aliens are just a couple of the things you can count on Hasbro doing right, when it comes to Star Wars action figures. We have seen them make toys out of incomplete puppets seen briefly in crowd scenes, from way back in the Original Trilogy days.

The First Order Snowtrooper seems to be made using the exact same digital files used for the 3.75-inch version, with some tweaks done to fit in the even more reduced articulation scheme
