One of the problems I keep running into lately is that I keep buying bigger & bigger toys. Toys too big for my “studio”, toys too big for just 6-8 pictures, toys that probably should get multiple reviews. I tend to put them aside when I’m choosing
I am seriously backed up on G.I. Joe Reviews. I happily subbed to the Joe FSS (& the Joe FSS 2.0) and, so far, only the first month’s figures have made it to the site. Did I mention I have all thirteen? Oops! And here I
As fate would have it, a couple days after my Twinstrike review I stumbled across another Predacon on a trip to Walmart. So since I’m still having fun with the little guys, the next figure on the way to completing Abominus is
I’m not really planning on buying all the TF Prime Predacons, but the few that are out have interested me enough that I seem to be heading in that direction. So today I’ve got a little review for a little figure I
I just found the second wave of Transformers Prime: Beast Hunters at my local Walmart. I passed on Smokescreen (for now), but decided to pickup another Predacon. Lucky for me, I’m much happier with Ripclaw than my two previous Predacon purchases.
When I ran across Rumble at my local Target a few months ago, I was pretty eager to pick him up. Unfortunately Hasbro hasn’t followed with his buddy Frenzy. I had to look towards Takara to complete the team, even though I
If I’ve learned anything from moving into my first home, it’s that I’ll be unpacking for the rest of my life. Seriously. Every time I think of an old figure I need for a review, it’s inevitably adrift somewhere in the cardboard sea in my garage.
I was surprised to discover the new Transformers Prime Beast Hunters figures at my local Toys “R” Us already. After pushing aside the familiar yellow plague that is Bumblebee, my choice of which one to buy was made even easier by the
This week seems to be devoted to paint variants, so to go along with the trend I’m going to throw one more Starscream onto the pile. This time I’m taking a look at the BBTS exclusive Dark Energon version. This is a
As the end of the year draws closer, I find myself trying to catch up on some older reviews that I haven’t gotten around to yet. So in order to save a little time and hopefully fit more things into my schedule,
I’m trying to catch up on some of my 2012 reviews before the end of the year, so today I’m doing two Transformers Prime figures in one review. Dead End and Wheeljack End may share the same body, but their unique head
On Monday, I got to review a long-awaited DC Classics figure: Elasti-Girl. Today is a review of a figure I’ve waited even longer for: a Marvel Legends U.S. Agent. I can’t believe it took two companies, hundreds of figures, and ten years to get this guy.
I’m not sure what to think about Hasbro’s ML reboot. I like the majority of the figures so far, but it seems like an afterthought in the toy aisle. Only one nearby Walmart carries it. Target & TRU still have their pegs,
It’s Monday night as I’m writing this review. Like a lot of other Masters of the Universe fans, I’m anxiously waiting to hear if the ultimate Castle Grayskull playset is going to be a reality, but the website must go on, and
This week, I’m looking at the Transformers Prime Gaia Unicron. This is the first Prime import that I pre-ordered before the press images were even released. I’ve been pretty happy with Takara’s exclusive figures so far, so I thought I’d take a chance on this guy. If
It’s been awhile since my last Marvel Universe review. Truth is, MU and I seem to have had a falling out. Space, budgeting, the return of Marvel Legends, & just finding the damn things have all affected my MU purchases of late. I haven’t bought many, but
I’ve been falling behind on my Transformers Prime reviews over the last few weeks, so I thought I’d play a little catch-up and review two. Today I’ve got the monstrous Darkness Megatron and the equally intimidating Arms Micron Dark Matter Calibur sword.
For years, I was strictly a toy forum guy. It was great for news and interacting with my fellow collectors. PoeGhostal.com changed that. Poe’s great reviews & insightful commentary helped inspire me to follow in his footsteps and strike out on my own. I can honestly
Before I start this review, I should point out that I… uh,never got around to seeing Amazing Spider-Man. July was kind of a blur, the whole summer has been really, and it ended up falling through the cracks. Heck, I didn’t even know 6” toys were planned
For Joe reviews, can you believe I’m still working off the case of GI Joes my wife bought me for Christmas? If that’s not a sign I need to do more Joe reviews, I don’t know what is! Today, I’ve got a quick review of a Renegades
Since I didn’t buy the battle-damaged Iron Man, this will be my last Avengers review for the foreseeable future. It feels wrong. No Black Widow. No unmasked Cap. No Maria Hill. No Coulson. I could go on; this line shouldn’t be over. Anyway, let’s wrap things up,
I’ve said this before, but G.I. Joe was easily the biggest toyline from my childhood. I had my fair share of Transformers and MOTU. I treasured my comic-based figures and loved plenty of smaller lines too, but I had a ton of G.I. Joe toys. It was
After Vault snagged Loki coming home from a convention five hours away, and After I snagged a Hulk on a business trip three hours away, all that was left was little Hawkeye. I never thought I’d want a Hawkeye so bad, but between the movie and the
Only one Wal-Mart within an hour carried 6″ Avengers figures. It was about half-an-hour away and I’d be lying if I said I didn’t waste a bit of gas hitting up that Walmart repeatedly. Sadly, only two of my Avengers figures even came from there. Toy hunting
When it comes to Transformers, I’ve been mostly obsessed with the Prime figures (and their Arms Microns) ever since the First Editions started hitting. So I thought I’d be able to take a break with the return of the Generations, but Hasbro wasn’t about to release
Originally my plan was to write a review about the new TMNT figures I picked up at Toys R Us last week, but SDCC changed everything. With the disappointing follow up news to the Hasbro panel, I figured a review on Takara’s Transformers Prime
