Legends of the West Horse

Legends of the West Horse

Well you can’t have a line of Western figures and not have horses. And Legends of the West had a couple of different horses. The basic one came with a molded saddle as a companion to the single carded figures. The horse has a  pretty good look. If anything, the horse might be better sculpted […]

Wild Bill Hickok

Mrs. Nerd and I got hooked on HBO’s Deadwood during this past holiday lull in TV programming. We burned through all 3 season. Of course, I blame this on the Final Shot Saloon Podcast. Of course, that would be payback for point out a line of Western Action Figure to the host, Clint. That line […]

One of the cartoons I used to watch , back in the 80’s, was Dungeons & Dragons. The show was rather formulaic, following the adventures of a bunch of kids trying to get back home from D&D land.

Mickey Mouse (Vinyl Figure)

My birthday is one week after the opening Walt Disney World. Ironically, when WDW turned 25, I turned 25, etc..  So, I feel a small connection to Mickey and Co. It doesn’t hurt their Imagineers do some pretty cool stuff. When I was much younger, my Dad was stationed in Jacksonville, Florida with the Air […]

Android 2-Pack (SDCC 2012 Exclusive)

As far as phones go, I can’t bring myself to drink the fruit juice. I have an Android phone I love.  So it made sense when I found a vinyl figure of the cute little mascot for Google’s operating system, that I would pick it up. That turned out to be a dangerous path, since […]

EVA-01 Mini Revoltech

Evangelion has to be one of the most influential anime shows created in the last 20 years. The full series name is Neon Genesis Evangelion and at the time it premiered in 1995, it represented a rather novel take on classic Japanese giant monster shows, where you’d have some sort of giant monster attacking a city in each episode with a group of heroes defending against them using their own enormous fighting machines called EVA Units.

EVA-00 Mini Revoltech

Kaiyodo is a Japanese company that has made a name for itself manufacturing toys and other collectibles based on popular anime shows. Kaiyodo is also the manufacturer of the Revoltech line, which consists on action figures that use a very specific style of articulation.

Black Canary

Over the past few weeks, I have been kind of extolling the virtues of the improved articulation on the later Infinite Heroes roster. However, it would be good to remember there is a reason this line flopped in the first place, despite hitting the streets well before Hasbro’s Marvel Universe figures did at several locations.

Black Adam

Basically this is magical Superman dressed in black. Seriously, one look at this guy and you know two things. One: he’s a villain (the black and gold outfit is a dead giveaway) and two: he’s a Shazam! related character …

Mr. Terrific

Mr. Terrific is another of those action figures I pick up without any prior knowledge of who the character is. I happened to see him hanging on the pegs alongside a fistful of the DC Infinite Heroes figures released in the 75 Years of Super Powers packaging, and his costume just caught my eye.

Captain Kirk & Yeoman Rand Minimates

This Minimate set is Captain Kirk and Yeoman Rand from “The Trouble with Tribbles.” Ironically, IMDB doesn’t list Grace Lee Whitney in Tribbles.

Trunks (Bandai)

Some times, when I’m bored and not paying much attention, I end up getting figures from series I’m not necessarily a fan of, which usually results in rather bizarre additions to my shelves…

Rosco P. Coltrane – Dukes of Hazzard (Mego)

I know Rosco seems like an odd figure to be the first of a line to review on TVFT. He’s not one of the heroes, and probably not the best in the line. Well, there’s no probably, he’s not the best in the line. For those that don’t know, Sheriff Rosco P. Coltrane was the […]

Rey Mysterio Deluxe Aggression Series 20

My first impression of the Rey Mysterio figure is that it is massive. Like all of the Deluxe Aggression characters, Rey Mysterio is a fairly big toy, clocking about 7” high and very well articulated.

Gordie Howe (Mr. Hockey)

Anybody that knows me will tell you I’m a big hockey fan. Not only a big hockey fan, but a big Red Wings fan. All three of our dog prodigies have their own jerseys. There’s a game used Chris Osgood stick above my desk at home and a box of Stevie’s Stars cereal on the shelf above it. If you […]

In this review we are going to take a look at the alien baddie from the latest Indiana Jones. Uh wait, wrong film alien. I was sorting through some things the other day and came across this figure in box of vintage odds and ends. For some of the younger generation, I need to explain a couple of things. […]

Hip Hop Cartman

South Park has been capturing a lot of headlines over the last week or so — so it seems only fitting that we added a review of Hip Hop Cartman to the TV&FT site. Nerdman has graciously turned over the reins to me (insert evil laugh…), and is allowing me to share my opinions with […]

“Battlestar Galactica” (1978) was a show that helped fill the sci-fi fix I needed while waiting for Empire to come out. It had the cool ships, cool pilots and cybernetic bad guys. I remember 3rd grade recess, a bunch of us sitting in upside down chairs on desks pretending they were Colonial Vipers. Ah…the memories. […]
