Clixmas11-500x299.jpg Wow.  Titans across the ages.  We already knew that the 80’s Perez Teen Titans and the modern nu52 Teen Titans were in this set.  Now we can see that the whole spectrum of Titans history is in the set, from the earliest team.  And this preview also shows us a new team base, the four…

Clixmas09-500x299.jpg Wolverine and the X-Men is a set which is due out sometime next summer.  The big draw is that it will focus back to the costumes of the 90’s, while the last set which featured the X-Men (Giant Sized X-Men: GSX) was geared more towards modern looks.  As I was taking a break from the…

Clixmas08-500x299.jpg My initial reaction was that this was the Iron Man movie set.  Apparently it is a comic based set.  But it must be very far off.  Spider-man, Teen Titans and Wolverine and the X-Men sets are coming before this one.  Glad to see Iron Monger and War Machine represented.  War Machine was conspicuously absent from both the…

ENDISNEAR1.jpg The End is Nigh! ok, ok, maybe you were expecting that from me, being the resident AFi Conspiracy Theorist and all.  Of course I couldn’t resist referencing the upcoming(?) Mayan Calendar Event.  But within our hobby, there is another End-of-Days Scenario unfolding. It’s the end of the (collecting) world as we know it…but do you…

2face-team-500x185.jpg If you have followed my link from HCRealms, welcome to AFi, my “other home” on the internet.  My No Man’s Land experience goes back a few months.  In some of my posts I lamented how my local gaming store was no longer running regular HeroClix events.  I knew I needed to find a new place….

TheBatmanSet1-450x600.jpg The boxes have shipped to stores.  Some to homes.  Some have been opened and the set has been ‘spoiled’ with pictures and stats of what the new pieces can do.  I’m talking about the new release of HeroClix, named “Batman”. At comic and gaming shops across the land, folks will be buying and playing the…

 

DSC01004-500x352.jpg So those who know me know that I have a profound love of Transformers.  It’s one of my main focuses in collecting.  The arrival of a new Masterpiece Transformer is a very special day in my household.  To be fair, I have a love/hate relationship with them.  Sometimes they’re absolutely brilliant.  Grimlock, MP-10 Optimus Prime,…

tootbrushart6 Welcome to part three in my series of reminiscing about the old days of concepting for Star Wars items that never were made. Except some of these were actually made! Amazingly, this post is following the last one not even a year later, which is a lot better than the four year gap between part…

 

20121106-065002.jpg Ever since the original render appeared, we’ve been watching for developments in the upcoming Miracle Metal Works Asian -market exclusive die cast Vehicle Force Voltron. Recently, I was asked by the fine folks at Miracle if I’d like to review the raw die cast pieces, just to get a feel for what is coming. Obviously,…

Screen Shot 2013-07-05 at 2.45.13 PM …Or something like that. So, with the big breaking news of Disney buying Lucasfilm, I’ve been in a Star Wars mood these past few days. I may just break down and write the next chapter of the “Unproduced Star Wars Concepts” saga. To be honest, it’s taken me so long to revisit it because this…
