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…

This is AFi’s first post-Toy Fair Q&A.  ToyGuru did an amazing job answering fans’ questions at the Mattel collector press event at Toy Fair last month, but there are always a few lingering questions.  That’s where you come in!

I recently found and bought a new JLU figure at Target (Firestorm).  I was thrilled.  But at the same time, it was obvious I had missed the other new figure that was released with it (Deadshot).  Over the past few days, its been nagging at me.  All the other JLU I’ve barely – or never –…
