Halo 4 Master Chief (Series 2)

One thing McFarlane Toys does regularly with their Halo lines, is re-issuing Spartan action figures as much as they can. This holds true also for Halo 4, where for Series 2 we get treated to yet another release of the Master Chief in his more recent set of armor.

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 […]

Spartan Military Police Custom (Blue Team)

I must say that I was not immediately taken with McFarlane’s Halo: Reach line. I started buying the figures when they debuted their Halo 3 line-up, but the Reach Spartans were not an immediate hit with me.

Brute Captain in VISR Mode

The only other McFarlane Halo figure decorated with VISR markings is this Brute Captain released in Series 8. Similarly to the Rookie figure released with the Mongoose vehicle, this figure is basically a repaint of a previously released figure from wave 6, the Brute Bodyguard from the Halo 3: ODST collection.

As with much of the current world, the “collectible” world has seen a rise in prices while companies have sought out ways to make things cheaper. Paint ops, articulation and accessories lead the way when it comes to cost cutting measures. McFarlane Toys used to be at the top of the pyramid for what fans […]

Guitar Hero Guitars

Mrs. Nerd and I were in a Dollar Store recently while we were waiting on two of the pups to get their haircuts at the groomer a couple stores down. Typically, these places are hit or miss. Mrs. Nerd is an office supply junkie, so she always likes to get pens, notepads and the like. […]

Lara Croft Vs. Imhotep Desktop Wallpaper

It’s no secret I’m a huge Tomb Raider fan. Even Mrs. Nerd somewhat enjoys Lara’s exploits. This is a digital wallpaper created from a variety of pictures, figures, and game graphics. Most of the wall is created with graphics from the Tombraider Level Editor. The figures are NECA’s Imhotep from the Mummy Returns, McFarlane’s Xaltotun the […]

Simpsons Movie Homer and Plopper

If you’ve been on TVFT before, you’ll know that I’m a big fan of Playmates World of Springfield series of figures. A good chunk of the comics on the site are WOS. Combine that with the fact that I love the Simpsons for their portrayal of a typical American family. Which one of has not had a Homer Simpson […]

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 […]

Anti-Pesto Gromit

I was really excited when I heard about the new Wallace and Gromit film. I loved the shorts, and really looked forward to seeing a feature length film. When I heard there were going to be new figures, I was ecstatic. Then I heard McFarlane was the company that was making them and I was skeptical. Their […]
