Joker (Arkham Origins)

The other day, while I was taking some photographs of my recent Batman action figures, it came to me that I don’t had much in terms of enemies for my caped crusaders.

Batman (Arkham Knight)

The action figure I’m reviewing today was released under the DC Comics Multiverse line, which is aimed to adult collectors, if the spiel in the packaging is to be believed.

Lego Astronaut

In the late 70’s, Star Wars and NASA had cemented interest in space exploration for a generation. It is no surprise that one of the first Lego series to have Minifigures was Space. It’s also not a surprise that those figures remain as popular as the City series. Instead of releasing a plain Spaceman figure in […]

Lego Landshark

I love the Lego mini figures of people in crazy suits. Chicken suit dude, Hot Dog Guy, Panda Dude, Bumblebee Girl, Clarence Beeks. Those are the ones I seek out first. Anything else is gravy. So you know when I saw the new series, I’d have to look for the Shark Suit guy. Now I […]

Calibos

I realize the original Clash of the Titans film, may not be everyone’s cup of tea, but I love Ray Harryhausen’s stop motion stuff. As a kid I was fascinated but how you animate things like mythological creatures. Calibos was one of those creatures in the film. Well, sort of. He was a man deformed […]

Walking Dead Hospital Doors

I’ve been curious about the Walking Dead building set from McFarlane for a while now. I tried to get one of the figure packs at Wal-Mart recently, and well, was denied. (Documented in an AFB Podcast Red Card!) So when I saw the Hospital Door set, my curiosity finally met a price point I could […]

Batman w/Underwater Gear (Imaginext)

If there is one thing the Imaginext line has no shortage of, it has to be Batman figures. Seriously, you can go shopping all-year round and you will always find at least two versions of the Caped Crusader on the store shelves.

Jamie Lannister (GoT Mystery Mini)

Warning in advance. The Jamie Lannister Mystery Mini from Funko’s Game of Thrones series 2 line has some later season spoilers. Nothing major, but if you are in season 1 or 2 in viewing, proceed at your own risk. When he starts, Jamie Lannister is a but of a douche. I hated him and was […]

Ned Stark (GoT Mystery Mini)

  I’m one of those people who didn’t read the books before watching Game of Thrones on HBO. The amount of promotional images and media centered around Ned Stark certainly gave the impression that Ned Stark was going to be the main protagonist of the story. The end of season one had a big twist […]

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 […]

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 […]
