YoungJusticeCast1.gif That’s right, its time once again to let Mattel know what the community wants for their current DC line. This time we are talking YOUNG JUSTICE. Mattel has been doing a pretty good job with character selection, giving us a good variety between Young Justice team members, Justice League members, villains, and repaints. But we…

And by entered, I mean they are in stores, and by ‘ring’ I really mean Toys R Us… So really what I’m trying to say is that NECAs awesome new ‘Rocky‘ figures are now hitting TRU store shelves.

BigBadToyStore.com sent out new solicitations today and it confirms something I was told at Toy Fair last month- that Bridge Direct’s new figures for the upcoming “Hobbit” movie would be in 2 scales: 3.75″ scale and 6″ scale.   Many fans have been speculating at the possible scale for this line since many of the Bridge…

JusticeLeagueDoom1.jpg Today sees the release of the next DC Animated movie, Justice League: Doom. A couple of quick things. 1. This is Dwayne McDuffie’s last movie, the last thing he wrote before he died.  I hope his family gets something out of this.  Knowing he is gone makes me more sad that we never got Static…

DST_logo2.jpg Two years ago, almost to the day, I wrote a piece for Men of Action in which I gave, in no uncertain terms, my opinion of Diamond Select Toys’s handling of their three sci-fi action figure lines: Star Trek, Battlestar Galactica, and Stargate. Unfortunately, I can’t say much has changed for any of those DST…

BLOGmagnumPI-OPEN1.jpg OK, this is just kuh-razy. This past week I posted a blog about my vintage 3 3/4″ mini-collections. In the last paragraph I alluded to the fact that I continually hunt for the rare LJN Magnum P.I. Ferrari and action figure. Its been a white whale of mine for a while. You know, one of…

In a past post, I asked you to decide which of The Big Three is the all-time biggest non-licensed action figure property; G.I. Joe, Transformers, or Masters of the Universe. Opinion was typically divided, but no one disputed…

inner_en-500x144.jpg Hey! Have you heard that Mega Bloks will be producing sets based upon the super-successful MMO World of Warcraft by Blizzard Entertainment? Yeah, I may have mentioned it once or twice, or more ’round these parts. Well, our friends at Mega Bloks are running a contest to rev up the buzz before the sets are…

BLOGprideJOY-OPENv21.jpg Last year there was a thread in the General Toy Talk section of the Action Figure Insider forum called: Whats Your Pride and Joy? It was a cool topic and I remember posting: “I think right now my Pride and Joy is my humble collection of 3 3/4″ scale vintage figures.” Since then I planned…

101_6367-500x374.jpg One of the amazing things about WizKids HeroClix is the ever increasing variety of teams/armies you can make to play against your friends (or opponents in tournaments).  The NECA/WizKids gallery does a good job of showing the packaging, but does a poor job of showing the potential of the game.  To add to what they…
