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 […]

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. […]

The other day, while I was taking some photographs of my recent Batman action figures, it came to me that I don’t had much in terms of enemies for my caped crusaders.

Batman (Arkham Knight)

The action figure I’m reviewing today was released under the DC Comics Multiverse line, which is aimed to adult collectors, if the spiel in the packaging is to be believed.

Batman w/Underwater Gear (Imaginext)

If there is one thing the Imaginext line has no shortage of, it has to be Batman figures. Seriously, you can go shopping all-year round and you will always find at least two versions of the Caped Crusader on the store shelves.

Catwoman w/Catcycle (Imaginext)

Given how scarce female characters tend to be in most pre-school lines, I brought this Catwoman w/Bike set home with me and now I’ll review her.

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.

And The Winner Is….

Well. It’s all over. You have voted and the winner is…Superman. I’m not really surprised, but I really thought Batman was going to win this one. It was close, for the longest time it was deadlocked at 50/50. Just a testament to the fans of both heroes. In retrospect, I’m glad to see Supes on […]

Marvel Vs DC Hero Bracket -Round 4 Voting Open!

It amazes me how much tougher this is getting. Round three saw one of the bigger Marvel Heroes eliminated by another Marvel Hero when Rouge squeaked by to take out Wolverine. Death of Wolverine is out right now isn’t it? Green Lantern managed to take down Silver Surfer in the cosmic battle. All of this has […]

Marvel Vs. DC Hero Bracket – Round 3 Voting Open!

This just keeps getting harder. For starter, Batman continues to be a powerhouse. Aquaman received no votes against the Dark Knight and was sunk. Also, Thor pound Lobo. And Wonder Woman won all of the votes against Elektra. The one that surprised me was Nightcrawler defeating Punisher. It was a bit even than Nightcrawler pulled […]

I really feel bad for Blade. Batman decimated him. Blade did not get a single vote. To everybody who has participated so far, thank you very much! First let me say go check out all the great stuff from bracket sponsors Cold Slither Podcast Network and Action Figure Blues. There were a number of big surprises […]

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 […]

Batman (Mego Pocket Heroes)

The Mego Pocket Heroes lines is one of those things in action figure history that you have to wonder about. It mixed DC and Marvel characters in the same 3.75″ scale. Why didn’t this line continue longer? So based on the lighter blue colors and shorter cape, this guy always reminded me of the Super […]

Tomar-Re (Battle Shifters)

Well, after seeing them on clearance for a few weeks, I eventually got to buy one of the “Deluxe” figures from Mattel’s Green Lantern 4-inch action figure line. Only they are not really Deluxe, neither in name nor value. This version of Tomar-Re was released as part of the Battle Shifters sub-line. In this format, you get one action figure and one big transforming accessory.

Green Man

Well, one of the reasons that pulled me towards Mattel’s Green Lantern 4-inch figures was the varied alien characters in the initial assortments. One thing I’ve learned after years of collecting several 1/18-scale figures is that you can never have too many aliens (or monsters), and once these figures started getting on clearance, I didn’t hesitate to pick up some of them.

Well, one thing about clearance sales is that usually, what you find there are the obscure secondary characters that no one really cares about. However, with the way Mattel handled the Green Lantern 4 inch figure line, it is actually very feasible to score even the main protagonist at rock-bottom prices.

Kilowog is one of the more popular member of the Green Lantern Corps, and that popularity pretty much guarantees that he’d have figures made of him whether in the comic inspired style or in the movie accurate incarnation.

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.
