20140109_113624 2013 is over and done with but looking back it was a pretty great year for action figures. I got a ton of figures last year so it was hard to narrow it down but if you will, I bring you my Top 5…

TIMESPAST_WONDERFUL The Holidays.

20131119_102936 I stopped at my local Target today and happened upon a new release for the “Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles” figure line by Playmates. This is the second Shredder in the action figure line and if you bought him the first time around this figure would be a considerable upgrade.

BLOGtoycompanies-BIG Recently I was staring at the cool packaging of the Super7 ALIEN ReAction line. As I noted how the ReAction logo pays homage to the original Kenner logo I started to wonder what “Kenner” originally meant. Then it occurred to me that I had no idea where many toy company names came from. Hence, my…
