ItsAllTrue has been running a bunch of 2013-assessment posts, such as It’sAllTrue.net’s Top Ten Action Figures of 2013 and NoisyDvL5′s 2013 Highlights & Disappointments.

It will take place in Lowell, Massachusetts on […]

Just in case you somehow missed my endless shilling, be sure to check out the joint-blog project I’ve expressed my doubts about third-party toys in the form of licensed characters, but I have far fewer qualms about third-part add-ons, which are awesome. There are some really cool third […]

Boba Fett, […]
It’s another Mattycollector release day. Today’s sale includes DC Universe Classics Ra’s Al Ghul, John Constantine, and Elasti-Girl; Watchmen’s Ozymandias; MOTUC Geldor and stackable stands and a number of re-releases. Castle Grayskull ships soon, but Pixel Dan won’t have an early review due to assholes who nicked bits off the display piece at NYCC. In […]
