Desert Troopers (Call of Duty)

Well after dabbling into the Megabloks Call of Duty line with the Drone Attack set, I really wanted to pick up a troop builder set, so to keep things consistent I went for the one with the desert troopers. Set #06825 Desert Troopers contains 146 pieces, of which at least 90 are made up by […]

Altaïr Ibn-La’Ahad

I’ve said it before. I don’t typically play video games until they are couple of years old. I’m not a serious enough gamer to pop down money on a game I may or may not like. I used to rent most games before I would buy them. So late last year I picked up a […]

Micro-fleet Mantis Invasion

In 2014 we got to see a “new” scale in the Megabloks Halo range. The Halo Micro-fleet sets are very similar in concept to LEGO’s mini-creations, being built using only the smaller construction elements available in the parts inventory.

Cortana (Halo 4)

Back when McFarlane Toys announced they would be producing a new, articulated version of Cortana, the A.I. companion of Halo’s Master Chief, everybody hoped for a full-fledged action figure

Spartan Warrior

Spartan Warrior

The level of detail on the Spartan Warrior is quite nice, with deeply recessed panels and heavily textured surfaces. The helmet has a narrower visor and extra armor that lends the appearance of a snout, but the design is still easily identifiable as a UNSC Spartan.

Brute Splicer

The Brute Splicer is supposed to be some sort of brawler, and the character design certainly conveys that impression. The Brute has most of his mass distributed onto the upper torso, with impossibly massive arms and a decidedly rotund paunch. The legs are also quite thick, but next to the upper limbs they tend to look ridiculously thin.

Ezio Auditore (The Mentor)

Ezio Auditore The Mentor, wears clothing very similar to the garments he used in the Italian City States, and NECA did a really good job in capturing in plastic the look of the digital models.

ODST Drop Pods (Micro Ops)

Being an Halo fan and a recovering wargamer, I was aware that McFarlane Toys had come up with a line of miniatures called Micro Ops, but as a whole, I found these sets to be way overpriced at the time of their release.

I was not really expecting NECA to follow through with their 1:18 scale Gears of War action figures. I figured they’d do the first series and leave it at that, but apparently I was wrong and they came up with three more figures for Series 2.

Augustus Cole

The last character in NECA’s second wave of 1:18 scale Gears of War action figures is Augustus Cole. Again, not having played the GoW videogames, I have no real personal connection to the character, but I will concede that he is possibly the best looking in his wave.

I am still one generation behind as far as gaming consoles go, meaning that I have no means of playing Borderlands 2, a game that served as inspiration for the subject of today’s review.

Marcus Fenix

The latest figure I picked up from NECA’s 1/18 scale Gears of War line is none other than the main hero, Marcus Fenix. Apparently he already was a recognized war hero even before the Locust War broke out, but again, just by looking at the figure you can tell he is supposed to be a tough-as-nails warrior.
