Erik "Superfriend" Skov
"Gathered together from the four corners of the universe." Oh, wait, that's the show, not me. Erik "SuperFriend" Skov never actually got to appear on the show, although he did watch it every week. Erik spent 6 years working for Hasbro in Pawtucket, RI before leaving for a job that paid more (Why else would a collector leave the company that was making Star Wars, Transformers, and while I was there Batman). I used to post all over the net. These days I tend to hang my hat at AFI.

The second movie based upon the comic Superman / Batman is due out next week.  "Superman Batman: Apocalypse." Tuesday, September 28.  It doesn’t seem to be getting the press it deserves, so I’m adding some here. Based upon the 2nd arc of Jeff Loeb’s run on the Superman / Batman comic, this movie tells the…

  Someone seems to not care about the new episodes of Batman Brave and Bold.  I love this series, but advertising for the new episodes seems to be missing. Cartoon Network has been talking about 4 premieres for last night, Friday 9/17, for over a week.  Clone Wars.  Some other new shows.  But never mentioned…

  I passed on the Bat Sub when it first came out.  But I had a Target gift card eating a hole in my wallet shortly after Christmas and the Bat Copter caught my eye.  I loved the Beetle Ship (see previous review).  The parts were fun.  This had lots of parts.  And seemed to…

I made a toy run on my way home this evening.  I do not go very often any more.  Never seems to be anything out there.  And I always have a ton to do these days (teaching my son to drive for one).  There at Target was a bunch of JLU 3 packs.  NBC used…

Frequent readers know I have a thing for the Batman Brave and Bold line.  Earlier this week we were alerted to the fact that this humongous Bat Bot was available for the ridiculous price of $6.99.  Yes, less than the cost of a basic figure for the same line ($8.99).  I was intrigued.  Then our…

Batman: Under the Red Hood, the latest release in the WB/DC Comics animated movies was released on Tuesday this week.   I honestly forgot until yesterday.  Popping into Target, they had no copies of the basic or 2 disc versions left.  Best Buy is down the street, so I went there next.  Best Buy also…

Dear Mattel, I just wanted to say Thank You for the JLU line.  Not only is it continuing, but with the figures shown coming at SDCC 2010, you have given us almost all of our highly requested figures.  We’ve run a number of JLU Most Wanted polls at AFi.  Each year you hit a few…

OK, I called it on these.  That they were coming ages ago: Forum topic started in April 2010. And just before they were announced, I wrote this: Blog I wrote the day before they were announced. These are pretty AWESOME. (From left to right – Aquaman, Green Arrow, Hawkgirl, Deadman, Martian Manhunter, Firestorm, Hawkman, Mera)…

SDCC is only about 10 days away.  I find myself day dreaming about what could be.  If you’ve read some of my other blogs you know that I see DC Direct’s 6 inch of DC characters and Mattel’s 6 inch DC Universe classics as competing for my money but complementing each other on my shelves….

A short one this time.  Stores were reducing their toy section stock after the Christmas holiday season.  I found myself in Khol’s.  They were having a massive sale.  They had 1 Batman Brave and Bold figure. Its real name is "Deluxe Villain Snare Batman", but it looks and works like a bear trap.  The real…

DC Direct made a handful of figures for the animated movie Superman:Doomsday.  At one point, we heard that Warner DC Animated movies after that would only come from Mattel.  Mattel tried its hand at this with Superman/Batman:Public Enemies.  Mattel decided to do these in an animated style in the 6 inch (DC Universe Classics) scale…

Transforming Batcycle.  Have you been holding off on buying this vehicle from the Batman Brave and Bold line?  I know I have. Packaging.  Why is this the only item in the entire line without a window box?  Does it play great but present poorly?   Price.  $19.99  More than I paid for the Blue Beetle…
