BrightestDay17-387x600.jpg Many moons ago, Danny N. and I both wrote blogs about our super hero T-shirt collections.  At the end of mine, I pointed out the dismay of being unable to own a shirt that really felt like Aquaman.  Aquaman does not have a chest symbol like Superman, Green Lantern or Flash. I’ve long thought that…

TeenTitansGo-500x185.jpg Not really, but tonight, April 23rd at 7:30 PM Eastern time is the premiere of DC Nation’s new show, Teen Titans Go. Bringing back the original cast from the prior Teen Titans show, this should be a hit with the younger crowd and somewhat nostalgic to fans of the previous show.  They even remixed the…

T001-New-Teen-Titans1-500x330.jpg Mid May will see the next release of HeroClix miniatures for that game, this time themed on the various eras, friends and enemies of the Teen Titans.  But it comes with a twist.  A new type of piece, the team base, is being added. In the past, it has often been difficult to field a…

untitled.bmp Today  I will be  reviewing the Marvel Knight Animation of INHUMANS. Before I begin I’ll give a brief background on what you’re in for animation wise. Marvel Knights Animation is a very unique endeavor. My  first and only other experience like  this was with Iron Man: Extremis, which is available on Netflix instant. An odd…

 

DSC01204-500x449.jpg               Last year at San Diego Comic Con, I had the pleasure of meeting the fine folks at Toymunkey Studios.  I had my assignments, I photographed their booth, spent some time with them learning more about their product lines, the usual convention stuff.  Toymunkey was a little different, however,…

flrb-launchers.jpg The times, they are a-changin’. Those of us who collect 3¾” action figures have seen articulation reduced in some lines to keep prices down around $6, while fully articulated figures cost in the neighborhood of $10. Green Lantern, STAR WARS, The Dark Knight Rises, Iron Man 3, Ultimate Spider-Man, and even G.I. JOE: Retaliation vehicle…

20130330-150934.jpg At Wondercon 2013 the gang at Super7 have gone from concept and announcement (Comic Con last year) to full on prototypes and release date (August) for their ReAction ‘Alien’ line. Also comes the announcement this weekend that they also hold the license for ‘Aliens’ so if the first line does as well as expected the…

BLOGevoWicket-open11.jpg An action figure anthropologist’s work is never done. It was only two trips around the sun ago that we examined the evolutionary links between modern humans and our diminutive ancestor, the Ewok. We presented this theory through the example of one Ewok in particular: Wicket W. Warrick. But recently a more complete fossil record has…

Wave18-500x400.jpg Back when wave 18 of Mattel’s DC Universe Classics line was announced I was very excited.  I loved those old Super Friends shows.  My internet name, “superfriend” is taken from it.  And now we were getting figures.  The problem was that the price had recently gone up.  They were now 16$ each. I had no…

In a recent blog I started out talking about my hopes for the show and then channeled that into what I thought would work for a toy line.  But what I think would work is not necessarily what I want.  So lets get deep into that here my actual wants.  This what I hope to…

GreenLanternCharacters.jpg Over on another site, the question was raised, “What Next?”  What next indeed.  Most of the big name properties have been mined for sets over the past few years.  Batman, Spider-man, X-Men, Justice League, Avengers, Hulk, Superman, Captain America, Thor, Teen Titans, Iron Man, etc.  For DC, there were 3 areas mentioned over and over…

valiant_oldnew1.jpg So, it’s already been reported here at AFi (here and here), as well as some of the other toy sites, and speculated about on various forums, that David Vonner (who has worked on fan-favorite lines like Marvel Legends and Marvel Universe in his time at Toy Biz and Hasbro) is working on a new project….

photo-4-150x1501.jpg I always regretted not buying the Toynami Herculoids sets when they were easily available. They are definitely one of the coolest cartoon families ever. Of course, I had only vague recollections of the cartoon so I watched a couple episodes the other day. Pretty much what you’d expect from a Alex Toth / Hanna-Barbera cartoon…
