JoeWeek keeps on rolling! Today, we bring you two more third wave figures, Anthony “Flash” Gambello and the Para-Viper. Flash, like Helix, is another figure that’s design comes to us via the ROC video game while the Para-Viper is a repaint of the 25th Anniversary version, but in the red/black M.A.R.S color scheme.
JoeWeek keeps on rolling! In the bevy of movie Joes, two in particular caught a lot of folks attention, one for being unique and the other for being generic: Helix, a new Joe created as an unlockable character for the video game, and the Pit Commando, an army building Joe that comes packaged with 13
Yes, I know I’m a slowpoke, but last night I went and finally watched G.I. Joe: The Rise of Cobra. When I was a kid, I watched the cartoon but I’ve never read the comic book. I collected the toys back then also, but until the recent movie figures; the last Joe toy I bought
We had a great time at JoeCon. Nearly everyone we met was very nice, helpful, and loved G.I. Joe. The panels were exciting. The new product blew us away. In one word, it was awesome. There was only one bad side effect to the whole thing: since we’ve gotten back, we can’t stop buying Joes.
When I first heard about the wave, it seems like forever ago now, I was excited. I couldn’t wait to finally add a Nova, a Tigra, an Astonishing Cat-Beast, and a Nemesis/Holocaust to my condensed Marvel Legends collection. I admit, I had some reservations. I’ve never been completely happy with Hasbro’s offerings for Marvel Legends.
You could say Tri-Klops is the first hassle-free MOTU figure since He-Man and Beast Man. He didn’t sell out in a matter of minutes. He didn’t invoke the red screen of doom. He doesn’t have soaring secondary market prices. He was up, he sold, and he lasted for a few days. Spiffy,
For awhile now, I’ve been buying DC “Super Powers” Classics, 25th Anniversary Joes, MOTU Classics, and others. It’s like a second childhood. I loved the toys as a kid and I love them again now when they’ve been rebuilt for my “adult” sensibilities (and my “I have a job” wallet). But
Every once in awhile, living in Uncle Wally’s backyard pays off. I had precious little to do this afternoon, so I grabbed the car keys and headed off to see how the Wal-Mart resets were coming along at the various stores around me. I hit up my eight closest Wal-Marts (it’s not really that far,
This Destro 2pk is sort of a double bonus for us. On the one hand, it’s eighth in our ten part series featuring the 2009 SDCC exclusives. On the other, it’s parts of JoeCon Weekend Coverage! You’ll find links to both our prior SDCC Exclusive Week Coverage as well as our coverage of the 2009
When the ItsAllTrue crew decided to hit up JoeCon, we weren’t thinking about exclusives. We knew about the Crimson Strike Team and we liked it, but they were out of our price range. We’d seen the promotion images for the other exclusives, but as we packed up and made the trek to Kansas City, we
Seventh in our ten part series featuring the 2009 SDCC exclusives, this review covers the DC Classics Wonder Twins. The Wonder Twins. The very name can strike fond memories or loathing in the heart of any DC fan. They’re the product of the 1977 All-New Super Friends Hour, one of the many incarnations of the
Sixth in our ten part series featuring the 2009 SDCC exclusives, this review covers the DC Infinite Heroes Anti-Monitor. If I had to choose which Anti-Monitor figure I could have gotten from SDCC, I’d probably have gone with the bigger one. He’s a smidge more appropriate for any size DC figure collection. I bought the
