Liv Moore Pop! Vinyl

Liv Moore Pop! Vinyl

We really liked Veronica Mars. And well, we liked Walking Dead. So it seemed natural we would give iZombie a shot. Turns out we liked it. There isn’t a lot of merch out there for it, but it’s nice to see things like Pop! Vinyl of the main character Liv Moore.  If you aren’t familiar, […]

Fifth Brother Inquisitor

When it comes to Star Wars: Rebels action figures, Hasbro has been rather inconsistent in their release. The first few characters were sold within the 2015 Saga Legends assortment, either individually or in 2-packs.

Spartan CIO

The CIO (Counter Intelligence Operator) Mjölnir GEN2 armor was one of the variants we got to see in the multiplayer levels from Halo 4. According to the lore, the Spartan CIO armor was developed specifically to offer an increased performance in espionage and counter-intelligence missions, rather than combat.

Robin Mystery Mini

A couple of confessions. I didn’t care for most of the Arkham game designs until I started playing the games. Confession two, while I’m a Batman fan, I’ve never been a big fan of Robin. If he’s written well, he’s okay. Most of the time it seems he’s included just to have him there. To […]

Kylo Ren (Jedi Force)

The Playskool aesthetics applied on this particular version of Kylo reminds me a lot of the cartoons drawn by Brian Kessinger, where we get to see different characters from Star Wars existing in the Calvin & Hobbes universe.

First Order Flametrooper (Jedi Force)

I really like the stylized format Hasbro uses for their Playskool action figures. In the case of the Jedi Force segment, they recently started offering single characters with action features built in them, like this First Order Flametrooper.

Rey (Resistance Outfit)

Rey is seen wearing this outfit right at the end of Star Wars The Force Awakens, for about five minutes, and even though it does look more put together than the scavenger outfit se wears for most of the movie, it is fairly evident the girl likes beige.

Marauder Valkyrie

Kickstarter has provided us with a bounty of great action figures in recent times. These include Marauder’s first Task Force outing. The great thing they did with that KS was to use it to generate the money to buy tooling to create an ongoing source of generic GI Joe style bucks. Their next Kickstarter, no […]

Within the very first wave of figures for the Rogue One movie, Hasbro gives us yet another version of everybody’s favorite space Nazgûl.

The Wolf

It’s well know I like retro figures and cheap figures. If I find both at the same time, it’s really hard to resist. I found The Wolf from Pulp Fiction at a Tuesday Morning for $3. I almost bought both of them had I was so tickled.  As you may, remember Winston Wolf is called […]

Kylo Ren (Unmasked)

Even though Hasbro did provide at least a couple different versions of Kylo Ren in the early 3.75-inch action figure assortment, it was until the last wave allotted for Star Wars: The Force Awakens that Unmasked Kylo Ren was made available.

Edward Kenway (Mayan Outfit)

One of my latest acquisitions comes from AC IV: Black Flag, and it is this version of Edward Kenway in his Mayan inspired outfit. Of course, this is an artistic interpretation, as Mayans really did not dress like this nor had a working knowledge of metal armor manufacturing.

K-2SO

  Yeah, I think you guys know that I’m a recovering Star Wars collector. It has been a long time since I’ve seen a figure that warranted buying to me. Not to say everything is a bad figure out there, I just don’t need more Vaders, Lukes, Stormtroopers, etc…. I’ve even passed on all of […]

Poison Ivy Mystery Mini

I hadn’t given the Arkham series of Mystery Minis much thought until I started playing the games. Now I would have rather had Batman, but Ivy is not the worse thing to pull as a blind box. For the game, Poison Ivy is pretty scantily clad. The majority of her clothing comes from a cropped […]

Alien (Funko ReAction)

This Alien is based off the first movie directed by Ridley Scott and even though the action figure is not quite as detailed as the screen counterpart, it does a pretty good job of capturing the characteristic traits from the H.R. Giger designs.
