IMG_0002 Hi, my name is Elliott and I’m 5 & 3/4 years old. I’ve been asked by Action Figure Insider to review the new Convention Exclusive Hasbro KRE-O Sgt. 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…

image Today I’ll be doing a brief wrap up (part 1 of 2) of what I saw at E3 2015 for Disney Infinity 3.0, which was my main point of interest while at the show. Tomorrow I’ll follow it up with some more coverage as well as figure reviews. Besides covering Disney Infinity for the figures,…

 

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…

DC10-Batman Once again, I am faced with wondering how I should collect my collection.  And once again, I will use HeroClix as my commentary. I recently once again began looking at making a purchase on line for a bunch of pieces.  Looking over the various sites to see which one had the most that I wanted…

Hulk Chase - Hulked out Bucky Barnes Capt America There is an old saying, “You can’t have everything, where would you put it.”  The other side of this is, “You can’t have everything, you can’t afford it.”  Or, you are just internally wired to be turned off by the idea of spending that much money. Let’s not try to fool anyone.  Collecting stuff is…
