The current Filmation subscription also known as “Club Grayskull” may be one of my sleeper hits of the year.  I expected it to be decent, but I was not expecting the figures to be as good as they are.  It’s […]

Mattel MOTUC Serpentine King Hssss Review

Serpentine King Hssss?  Haven’t we already gotten two of this guy in Masters of the Universe Classics?  Yes, indeed we have.  This figure is a little bit different, however.  Depending on your take it is either an egregious lie or […]
