Review > Ggrapptikk Grunt (Power Lords, Four Horsemen Studios)

First off, I’d like to thank the Four Horsemen for sending this figure along for review. I only asked for samples of the Power Soldier and  Elite Soldier (since I’d missed the sale), so his inclusion in the package was a pleasant surprise. –PG Revell’s Power Lords were memorable for three things: great designs, ahead-of-its-time […]

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 […]

A few new acquisitions & SWB Darth Vader speculation

Just some random musings for you. I got this guy recently via sponsor Nerd Rage Toys. Playmates’ short-lived Toxic Crusaders line was great because it was 100% compatible with Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles in every way –  size, style, articulation, and even the overall theme. I only owned Toxie himself, but it was a great […]

Odds ‘n Ends > SWB6″, Power Lords, Mordles & Robo Force, ReAction Figures

I hope you all enjoyed Star Wars Black Week! I’ll also be reviewing Han Solo, Leia and Greedo soon. And of course, don’t forget to enter our Trygg Poftu contest for a chance to win a Series 2 Boba Fett! Our partner CollectionDX has had some great reviews recently, including OMFG! Series 3 and the […]
