Continuing my thoughts on the SDCC reveals from last week… Hasbro Hasbro has four big licenses action figure franchises: Transformers, G.I. Joe, Star Wars, and Marvel. I don’t really collect Transformers or G.I. Joe at all (with a few exceptions), so I’ll just comment on the other two. Star Wars There was 3.75″ stuff, but […]
The reveals and previews keep coming! Well, of course, I doubt that anybody showed off everything they have on Preview Night. But let’s take a look at some other companies, shall we?

I’m either going to sell […]
A few other things that caught my eye at Toy Fair: Mezco’s stylized Universal Monsters figures. OAFE reviewer and occasional PGPoA contributor Rustin Parr could not possible be more excited for these–he’s planning to get two of each. I’m in for the Gillman, of course, as he’s my favorite UM. They’re due out around September […]
