Mattel Announces SDCC Exclusive
For DCUC/CIE & No One Cares

Mattel announced their DCUC/CIE exclusive for SDCC this year and… I honestly think I liked last year’s nothing better. I try not go negative here at IAT, but this one just bugs me. I almost don’t want to post it. It’s got dumb Mattel, Geoff Johns,

Superboy Prime Review

I had six-hour meeting three hours from home today, so this will be brief. When I got home and scanned the unreviewed toy shelf, I wanted to find something I could sum up quickly – probably something I didn’t care too much about, something that had

Watchmen: Club Black Freighter
Doctor Manhattan Review

One of the lines I’m most excited about this year is the comic-based Watchmen line. Yes, it’s from Mattel and that does mean there is the potential for an issue or two, but this is line I’ve wanted for so long that Mattel doesn’t have to

Earths Elongated Man Review

Every April Fool’s Day is pretty much the same at IAT. I always forget to come up with anything clever. Vault’s girlfriend will ask about the plush sheep review she did years ago. I still won’t understand how it’s an April Fool’s joke. Anyway, let’s move

(Super Powers) Penguin Review

There are figures you really want and then there are figures you inexplicably must have. The classic Penguin is one of those figures for me. I have a lot of wants for the 6” DC line. I want more characters. I want more tooling. And yet here

In my efforts to get caught up on my backlog of reviews, I thought it might be a good idea to throw December’s Club Infinite Earths offerings into one big review. It seemed only naturally since Mattel chose that month to (nearly) complete the Metal Men with

In our never ending quest to get caught up on toy reviews, I’ll be taking a look at a figure that originally came out way back in November. Like Swamp Thing, Constantine is a character that I was really looking forward to.

Earths Elasti-Girl Review

When Elasti-Girl arrived at the end of the last month, the first thing I said was, “finally.” If you’d asked me back in 2008 for my “Top Ten Characters that Need to be C&Cs” list, Elasti-Girl would’ve easily been in my top three. Instead, she ended

Earths Poison Ivy Review

Classics got its erstwhile start as a Batman line nine years ago. Six years ago, a Batman theme held down every other wave of DCSH. And DC Classics (2008-2011) certainly never strayed too far from Batman & his rogues. With all that Bat-history, it’s inconceivable that

Earths Atrocitus Review

Every once in awhile, time just gets away from me. I didn’t realize how long I’d had Atrocitus sitting here when a reader asked me to not skip Atrocitus last week. I was always planning on reviewing him, but somehow he snuck past my sense of urgency.

I have no idea what to write about Rocket Red. I’ve got twelve pictures to work around and I don’t think anyone’s going to stick through two pages of me bitching and moaning about how this figure annoys me. I like to have fun with toys, but

Young Justice. We meet again. This is one of those reviews were I passed on the figure initially, but repeated trips to the store and a lack of resolution about collecting the line ultimately led to picking up the figure. Not my favorite, but not bad, here’s

I was reading through this awful issue of Justice League of America at the comic shop last week.

I’d also like to spend some money on Crime Syndicate toys too.
