Sandman (Marvel Infinite Series)

In a rather unusual fashion, Sandman was released with two different paint variants and apparently, in the same quantities so neither one was significantly more difficult to obtain.

Black Panther

With the third installment of the Captain America movies looming in the horizon, Hasbro has been rather sneaky and instead of revealing early too much about the movie designs, they opted to go for a more comic-inspired look for this Black Panther action figure.

Okay. I’ve never played the game Five Nights at Freddy’s. Sorry. I will one of these days. I’ve watched a couple of videos, and well, it kinda creeps me out. If you are like me and haven’t played it, it’s a horror survival game of sorts. You are a security guard at a knock off […]

So there is this cute little Yorkie I follow on Facebook named Misa Minnie. She’s a smart little therapy dog. Since the Nerd household has three Yorkies, we are fans. And cute dog pictures always make me smile. One of Misa’s favorite toys is Bear Bear. Now, I spent some time looking at Bear Bear […]

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.

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 […]

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 […]

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 […]
