diss_valley Hi there. I’m Jeff. Remember me? It’s been awhile since I’ve written one of these here blogs. Like nine months or so. There’s been a lot of reasons for my absence. Much of the first half of 2015 was spent in preparing to move, buying a house and actually moving. But, really, that’s not the…

20150731_120215 Today I’ll be looking at the brand new poseable figural model kit by Bandai featuring the powerful Pokémon, MewTwo! This isn’t the first time I review SprüKits, I had  previously taken a crack at Batman and Superman sets I reviewed last year. I wasn’t sure if I would like this type of model kit, not being…

Skylanders A week ago, I was in NYC, with my wife Sandy, to attend that night’s taping of The Daily Show with John Stewart.  On our way back to our hotel, I was taken back by a bunch of costumed people outside Toys R Us in Times Square.  Then I saw it, through the window, a…

Slaughter “Construction Commandos” box set. I’m really excited because it comes with TEN minifigures and a neat tank called the “Triple ‘T’”! My stepdad, DD, says this is…

 

DSC02453   Just in time to celebrate the landmark film’s 40th anniversary comes Funko’s Jaws ReAction figure line.  I saw Jaws at a drive in movie as a child in 1975.  It made such an indellible mark on me as a child that I had to have every rubber shark toy imaginable.  But to this day,…

Rings from Comics If you are like me, you don’t just collect your favorite license in one scale or format.  One license that has gotten better over the past few years than before is Green Lantern.  Yes, we got a movie a few years ago, but the real key turning point was when someone said, “What made you…

DSC02425 I feel it’s only fair to disclose a few things in advance of this review.  I’m an unabashed Rocketeer fan.  I’ve been waiting 25 years for this toy, so please, forgive me if I gush over it a little bit.  I saw the film before it was in theaters.  I own one of the original…

DSC02319 As a longtime fan of Bandai’s ultra-poseable S.H. Monsterarts line, it’s like a little slice of Christmas when a new one is released.  So far, the majority of the line has focused on the Heisei (modern) Godzilla films, and you’ll find no complaint here.  This time, Bandai took a fork in the road, and has…
