Jon Snow

Even though I am an avid follower of the Game of Thrones TV series, truth is I never intended to start buying Funko’s Game of Thrones Legacy Collection figures. However, bumping into them with a nice discount usually tips the scale in their favor.

The undead are getting a lot of coverage in media in recent years, thanks in no small part to the groundbreaking visual effects featured in movies and TV series.

Daenerys Targaryen

There are so many rich storylines on Game of Thrones, it’s hard to pick a favorite. I have to say I always find myself looking for forward to the Daenerys and Arya scenes the most. Daenerys has a story driven by birth right, revenge, and what she feels is just. It really just draws you […]

Harley Quinn & Joker (Imaginext)

Harley Quinn & Joker came out in 2014 in the DC Superheroes Imaginext line, and they both are quite interesting figures to look at.

Wonder Woman & Superman (Imaginext)

A thing that has been somewhat absent from the Imaginext line is female characters, but that also seems to be changing nowadays. Case in point, the other day at the store I found a 2-pack set of figures that includes Superman and Wonder Woman.

Kamen Rider Gaim – Arms Change Orange Arms Review

Here’s where it all comes together for Bandai’s Kamen Rider Arms change figures. Just like the show, you can pop a fruit on their shoulders and transform their armor. Yeah, it’s a gimmick, but it’s one that is done well here.   They took some effort to make the fruits fold up like they do […]

Kamen Rider Gaim – Arms Change Basic Figure

There are a number of different Kamen Rider Gaim figures. Ranging from zero articulation to Figuarts level. My original intention was Gaim was going to be my first Figurarts figure. However, the mid range “Arms Change” series figures were just too tempting. If you read Monday’s take on the show, you know that this version […]

Andalusian Horse

After watching The Hobbit movie last year, I began looking for small ponies to display alongside some of the figures, but I had no luck. I did find, however, an Andalusian horse that I thought would work well as Shadowfax, the horse Gandalf rides in the last couple Lord of the Rings movies.

General Grievous (Battle Damage)

Even though Hasbro did release General Grievous more than once in the animated-style Clone Wars line, it was one of those characters I didn’t felt like paying the whole price for.

Living Dead Dolls Minis Clown

The older I get, the more I like cute and creepy stuff. I’m not sure what that says about me. So when you combine that and my love of blind box figures, I couldn’t pass by the Living Dead Dolls Minis. The first one I picked was this guy, Schitzo. This is the regular version, […]

Sheldon Cooper

Love it or hate, The Big Bang Theory has become insanely popular in our culture. While a swarm of merchandise is out there. most is for the masses and not really toy collectors. Which is a bit ironic considering the amount of swag the gang owns. Funko is helping out there with it’s BBT Mystery […]

Joker DC Mystery Mini Vinyl Figure Review

Mrs. Nerd subscribed me to Nerd Block a couple months ago and the second one struck all the right notes with me. The first thing was a really cool Darth Vader t-shirt. The second was a DC Mystery Mini blind box. While it would have been nice to get a Batman, this Joker wasn’t a […]

Merle Dixon

It took along time before I became sympathetic to the character of Merle Dixon on The Walking Dead. I’ve got a redneck streak, but it mainly involves duct tape, flannel and a love of deep fried food. I don’t carry the hatred that Merle exhibited from the very start. In the end though, Merle came […]

Phil Robertson

Well, I’m sure if you read the other Duck Dynasty figure reviews, you saw this coming. Phil is the fourth figure in the series and really one of the essential ones. Especially, if you consider he’s the one that founded Duck Commander. Appearance: Phil’s appearance is much more like Uncle Si’s. On the show, Phil […]

Dalek (Doctor Who Titans)

Exterminate! I couldn’t have the Doctor running around with at least one Dalek. I ended up with two. I was actually trying for a Tardis and a Dalek, but I’m not going to complain. I was trying to feel for something that was big and bulky in the Doctor Who Titans boxes. You can almost […]

Willie Robertson

  Out of all the Duck Dynasty figures, Willie was the one I was probably least interested in. However, after obtaining the other three, I figured I should finish of the series with the CEO of Duck Commander. Appearance: This is a Willie we’ve seen a few times on the show. It’s his bluejeans with […]

Jase Robertson

I’m a lot like Jase. I often find myself distracted at work by other interests. While his are outdoor pursuits, mine involve toys. Either way, I can see a streak in him that I see in myself. Appearance: Again, like Uncle Si, I suspect the body here is reused. In this it worked out well. […]

Uncle Si

Mrs. Nerd and I are reality TV junkies. However, we don’t watch every thing out there. I was really surprised when she said she wanted to watch an episode of Duck Dynasty. Normally, her tastes don’t run to anything close to outdoors. So we watched and episode, and another episode, and another….You get the idea. […]

Destroyer Droid (Clone Wars)

Recently, I commented on how the regular Clone Wars Battle Droids tended to warm pegs at stores although, I do think that those guys will eventually sell, at the right price point, while the subject of today’s review, the Droideka, a.k.a. Destroyer Droid may be a harder sale.

Battle Droid (Clone Wars)

  If I had to name one type of character that consistently warmed pegs at everywhere I went, looking for Star Wars figures, it would be the lowly CIS Battle Droid.   These guys looked impressive in the Episode I trailer over ten years ago, but over time, they became a joke due to their […]
