Mattel Masters of the Universe Classics Eldor Review

Mattel Masters of the Universe Classics Eldor Review

There is definitely something to be said for an action figure that you are teased with, but then it ends up being ultimately cancelled.  Hasbro and NECA seem to do this to me from time to time.  Showing off some […]

NYCC 2014: DC Collectibles

DC Collectibles is a yearly expected guest at New York Comic Convention.  This year for whatever reason they decided to just not show up.  However, they did leave a few things at the door for us to look at.  Last […]

NYCC 2014: Yes Anime Super Armor TMNT

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles are so hot right now!  Well, actually, they always seem to be hot.  It’s interesting how TMNT seems to click with every generation. Anyways, at New York Comic Con this weekend I discovered a little surprise […]

Funko Legacy Game of Thrones S2 Khal Drogo Review

I’m in dangerous territory here today deciding to take my chances with Funko’s Legacy figures again.  In case you missed my first experience feel free to check it out here.  I bought into the first wave of their Game of […]
NYCC 2014: NECA Pacific Rim and Godzilla

NYCC 2014: NECA Pacific Rim and Godzilla

I think combining Pacific Rim and Godzilla makes perfect sense.  Any objections to this?  Good! This was probably what I was looking forward to most from NECA this year.  After a slightly rough start I am loving the Pacific Rim […]

NYCC 2014: Third Party Transformers

NYCC did have a couple of third-party Transformers on display thanks to Lunar Toy Store.  They had both old and new official and unofficial Transformers on display at their booth, but I’ll mostly focus on the ones that have not […]

NYCC 2014: NECA Devil May Cry Deluxe Dante

Prior to the convention NECA had hinted on their twitter account that they had found a way to make a previously cancelled figure work and would be showing it at NYCC.  The speculation at first was endless because NECA has […]

NYCC 2014: TruForce Megaman X

NYCC 2014: TruForce Megaman X

There have always been rumors and grumblings that Capcom is difficult to work with when it comes to merchandising.  Thus it is interesting to see in the last year that a couple of pretty much unknown companies have announced Capcom […]

NYCC 2014: S.H. MonsterArts

Bluefin Tamashii always has a large presence at New York Comic Convention and this year was no exception.  I was looking forward to getting a better look at their recently announced Gamera figure.  Bluefin came through with a beautiful display […]
S.H. MonsterArts Godzilla (Rebirth) Review

S.H. MonsterArts Godzilla (Rebirth) Review

I’d recently reviewed the NECA Heisei era Godzilla and loved it!  While I appreciate the amazing work NECA is doing with Godzilla at their price point, MonsterArts is still the big fish in the monster pond.  Their detailed sculpts and […]

A Crowded Coop TF2 Portable Mercs Wave 1 Review

Around third quarter of the year is when we start to see that stuff that was in early development at Toy Fair.  I fell in love with a lot of stuff at Toy Fair (no surprise), but I always have […]
