MOSNamekScreen1-500x274.png Here in So Cal I have been on a desperate hunt for Mattel’s 6″ Movie Masters line from “Man of Steel.”   Even though the on-shelf embargo date was back on April 28th, none of the local Target or Toy R Us stores that I have visited have put out ANY product, even though they have…

Every year Target puts out an aisle of under $10 “stocking stuffer” type gifts and toys.   In the last few years they have also been getting some exclusives.  Most stores have done their resets now so we know what is available for 2012.  We knew there would be a 4″ “holiday” Batman figure, a sort…

Unless you have been living under a rock for the past few weeks it’s been hard to miss the massive displays for “the Avengers” products in the big box retailers.  But I thought it might be fun for our international readers to see some of these displays too.   I really like the light up feature…

20120205-0039201.jpg I’ve known for a while that there is a shady “collector” that has been buying stuff at my local Target, opening it and returning it with different figures. They have been laying low for awhile. I hadn’t seen their handy work for about a month when he had returned a ‘Real Steel’ figure in a…
