I’ve been impressed with the sculpting on the Star Wars Black 6″ (SWB6″) line, and the Sandtrooper has possibly the best sculpt in the first wave. All the details on the armor are there. It’s not a complicated sculpt – stormtroopers are mostly clean, straight lines – but there are some nice touches, like the way the clasp on the pauldron creates folds in the orange material.
I found it impossible not to like this figure. I will say that the impressions I got from photos did not convey the figure’s charm when you have it in hand. I actually felt a little of the magic I experienced when I got my first Star Wars action figure in the early ’80s.
I picked this up last year but never got around to doing a write-up about it. I absolutely love it when companies do holiday-specific exclusives (for example, the Christmas-themed S.L.U.G. Zombies, Santa Gizmo, or the Playmobil Santa set). There was a couple of years where Target had a lot of these, maybe about 4-5 years […]
The following is a guest review. It does not necessarily reflect the opinions of Poe Ghostal or the staff of PoeGhostal.com. By the time I began to collect as an adult, the 1990 He-Man toy line was largely forgotten, and only really remembered by the truly hardcore. I’ve owned tons of He-Man toys, figures, books, […]
The following is a guest review. The opinions do not necessarily reflect those of Poe Ghostal or the staff of Poeghostal.com. It’s been a big year for Hordak. Not only did we learn, via the contentious DC one-shot comic “The Origin Of Hordak,” that cosmic enforcer Zodac was (spoiler – see below *), but we […]
The following is a guest review. It does not necessarily represent the opinions of Poe Ghostal or the staff of PoeGhostal.com. Clamp Champ came out too late in the vintage Masters of the Universe line to be any interest to me in 1987. It wasn’t until the 1990s and my high school and college years […]
Icer is the first toy from the Club Filmation sub-line from Masters of the Universe Classics, and as someone who isn’t an avid fan of the 1980s cartoon (I seem to remember thinking it was pretty stupid even as a kid, though not stupid enough not to own cool toys from), I’m a little perplexed at […]
One of the more interesting toy lines to come out in 2013 was the Adventure Wheels Duck Dynasty Action Figure line, made by Tree House Kids. Released as four individually carded 3¾” scale figures in June 2013, in what is apparently a U.S. Walmart exclusive, the set flew under the radar of most collectors and […]
S.H. Figuarts is one of the coolest action figure lines from Bandai. They take characters that we all love and shove so many joints into them that it blows your mind. So this is their version of Super Saiyan Goku, or “Super Saiyan Son Gokou” according to the packaging. I’m really happy with the sculpt […]
