Takara: Transformers MP-22 Ultra Magnus First Shots!

I was beginning to think I dreamed up the new Masterpiece Ultra Magnus, but alas we now have confirmation thanks to TAG Hobby.  Originally it was thought that MP-22 would just be a white Optimus Prime with armor, but it […]

Mattel Masters of the Universe Classics Blade Review

I have a confession to make; I’ve only ever seen the Masters of the Universe movie once in my life.  It was in a theater when I was six and it pretty much scared the crap out of me.  I’ve […]

Maketoys Trash-Talk and Cogwheel (Transformers Swerve and Gears) Review

Trash-Talk (Swerve) and Cogwheel (Gears) are the two newest third-party Transformer releases from Maketoys.  Coming into this set I really didn’t know much about either characters besides early toy and cartoon memories.  So why did I then decide to buy […]

S.H. MonsterArts AvP Alien Warrior Review

It’s hard to review an Alien figure.  I have five or six of them from the current NECA line; five of them are just recolored and the other is the “Big Chap.”  I reviewed the first NECA release, and then […]

Hasbro Star Wars Black Six Inch Bespin Luke Skywalker Review

Hasbro Star Wars Black Six Inch Bespin Luke Skywalker Review

S.H. MonsterArts AvP Predator Wolf Review

I really should just accept that the S.H. family is just going to have to be part of my life.  I’ve already gotten a taste of the Figuarts division with their delightful Mighty Morphin Power Rangers figures, and now I’ve […]

NECA Pacific Rim S3 Coyote Tango Review

NECA Pacific Rim S3 Cherno Alpha Review

In Pacific Rim we get a fairly short glimpse of what Cherno Alpha can do in combat.  He gets a few punches in but is shortly after destroyed by the Kaiju duo of Leatherback and Otachi.  Cherno’s pilots probably get […]
