When Mattel began developing a toyline counterpart to Masters of the Universe geared toward girls, they didn’t stray too far from the formula that was working so well for He-Man and his pals. Eternia became Etheria, Skeletor became Hordak, the Sorceress became Lighthope, Battle Cat became Swift Wind, Orko became Cowl, He-Man became She-Ra, Princess […]
I’m working on my Adora review, and I should have Battle Armor He-Man done by Monday. I’m also looking to create a new Odds ‘n Ends photo and some other surprises. In the meantime, I want to thank Paul for making up for some of my laziness. He’s the real American hero. He’s also a […]
Out of my Christmas haul my biggest get (at least toy wise) was the new(ish) AT-ST put out by Hasbro. If you don’t remember this bad boy, I geeked out for it a few months ago and never thought I’d actually see it, much yet own it. If you’re on the fence or want to […]

What the title said: Evil-lyn pics Still unhappy about the Teela feathers/leaves on lower part of the outfit, but pleased with the yellow skin, head sculpt, Screeech, and wand/staff option.
I’ll let you in on a secret. I’ve almost given up entirely on buying single carded figures in the 3 3/4ths scale. This is due to the fact that I’m poor and can’t fathom paying over seven dollars for one tiny figures. That’s why I’ve been digging these “Blockbuster Value” two packs that I’ve found […]
One of the main reasons I was really excited to get a PS3 this past Christmas was because Sony was releasing the God of War Collection–the first two God of War games in a single $40 package and updated with hi-res graphics and anti-aliasing. I’d been aware of God of War since the first game […]
On Saturday I received my shipping confirmation for Adora, due to arrive Thursday. Last night I received my shipping confirmation for Battle Armor He-Man, who’s due to arrive…Friday. Is this genuinely impressive, or am I just that pre-conditioned for less-than-standard service by Digital River/Mattel? Don’t answer that.
As I mentioned, I missed the deadline for this round, but we should be back on track for the Feb 1 round. In the meantime, here’s a roundup of the Jan 15 Q&As. Let me know if I missed any.

Regarding the Adora sellout: to clarify, I definitely think they were more, possibly a lot more, total Adoras than total Battle Armor He-Men. What I was suggesting in the comments to the Adora post was that the total number of Adoras available on Mattycollector yesterday might have been exceeded by the total available BA He-Man […]
