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 […]

Juggernaut (Call of Duty)

  One popular play mode in most modern First Person Shooter games is “Juggernaut”. You can find it implemented in the Halo and Call of Duty games, although it is also featured in many other game series.   Mega Bloks decided to offer a small set loosely inspired by this game mode in their 2014 […]

Luminara Unduli

A good number of the 3.75-inch action figures we are getting from the first few waves in the current Star Wars Black Series are actually designs that were to be released originally for the Star Wars Vintage Collection by Hasbro.

41st Elite Clone Trooper

The 41st Elite Clone Trooper uses the same basic body mold updated for the Vintage Collection, paired with a Phase II helmet. So far, so good, as the details sculpted onto the armor looks sharp and the articulation is really excellent.

Jon Snow (Mystery Mini)

Poor Jon Snow. I always figured he was destined for bigger things. He’s definitely a fan loved character. Following his uncle into the service he goes to serve as a “Watcher on the Wall.” Funko too the Game of Thrones license and ran with it. Legacy 6″ figures, Pop! Vinyls and Mystery Minis. I don’t […]
