It sure seems like Cobra Commander is turning into the Darth Vader of GI Joe figures. Yet I keep buying them. Honestly, I was going to set this guy aside and try and flip him later. But it got the better...

I’ve documented how I no longer have my vintage mail away Cobra Commander. So it’s no surprise this black suited CC that was part of the Dollar General series appealed to me. Appearance: I’ve...

I’ve not managed to snag any of the dollar store GI Joe figures yet. Not for lack of trying, mind you. One person that has is Cordicon from Twitter. He’s a YouTube reviewer, so I thought I’d...

I have to say as a character, I know very little of War Machine other than what I saw in Iron Man 2. However, that hasn’t seemed to keep from latching on to him as my Iron Man armor of choice. I...

Okay, I’ve never been a big Thor fan. I don’t dislike him. I just never read much about him, unless he was in a comic with other heroes. However, much like the Iron Man film did, the new Thor...

This figure embodies more of what I would have expected the main Cobra forces to look like in GI Joe: Rise of Cobra. Labeled as a “Shock Trooper,” this figure is part of the Urban range of...

The rest of the Mininmates I’ve reviewed here have been of the Marvel variety, so some Star Trek ones should be  a nice change of pace. This Minimate set is Captain Kirk and Yeoman Rand from “The...
