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.

First Order Flametrooper

Even though we got to see a myriad of specialized troopers back in the Original Trilogy days, one of the more interesting First Order trooper designs we got to see in the Star Wars: The Force Awakens movie is that of the Flametrooper.

Tycho Celchu (A-Wing Pilot)

Not too long ago, I managed to track down a few figures I was missing from Hasbro’s Star Wars 30th Anniversary Collection, and today I’ll tell you about one of them, Rebellion pilot Tycho Celchu.

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.
