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 […]

Wasp (Marvel Universe Infinite Series)

I am not exactly sure how much is coincidence and how much is actual planning when I see Hasbro producing figures for second-tier characters way in advance of they becoming relevant due to a mention or an appearance in any of the Marvel movies.

Engineernerd Builds a Gundam Kit Part 1

This is a new experience for me. So I thought I would take you guys along on the journey. I think calling these model kits is a bit of a misnomer. A model kit to me is something static. Gundam kits, I’m learning are essential DIY action figures. First, I had to pick a scale […]

Stormtrooper (Black Series, 1/18 scale)

  Even if you only bought one of each figure released in the Hasbro Star Wars lines, chances are you already have a pretty sizeable number of plain Stormtroopers in your collection.   And still, when Hasbro announced that they would add yet another of these troopers to the first few waves of the 1/18 […]
