The Ant-Man from Japan!

Completing a team is super important when it comes to figure collecting, not an easy task considering how quickly certain characters become “rare” and ridiculously pricey once scalpers start to notice the trend. Sometimes you can’t complete the team because some members just don’t get the action figure treatment, but sometimes team completion is possible, …

Hulkbustin’ on a whole new scale

If one of your teammates is an insanely strong monster with a bad temper, it only makes sense that you have a contingency plan. Some sort of plan to BUST him up should he go to the dark side. Thanks to the over-revealing Avengers2 trailer we know this plan will come into action soon enough, …

A New Recruit, A Familiar Face

At some point in the past years someone at Marvel wondered, “What If Spider-Man’s greatest enemy was combined with Peter Parker’s school bully?” Fortunately the idea to place the resulting character on the side of the angels also came around and so instead of a terrible Spidey-Pete hating villain we got a complicated hero, a …

Clone in a Red Cape

For the most part I prefer villains to their hero counterparts, mainly due to the fact that the villains have more exciting and complex stories. Sure their motives are pretty predictable but their background stories are usually pretty crazy. Case in point; the mutant clone from the future known as Stryfe.

Guardians of the 6″ Galaxy

You had me at giant tree-man and talking raccoon! I mean really, how could anyone not love a team with such amazing members?! This is not a movie review, as I have not seen it yet (also another writer called dibs). Rather its a review of the super cool action figures! Which drew me in harder than …

There is no WHY in team!

Regardless of how much you dislike a character if they are on a team that you are collecting, you need to include them. Its a rule. You can sometimes try to substitute them for someone else, as team rosters do change, but you can’t just leave that slot empty. Why? Well, because you just can’t! …

Buzzing About The Bee

Of course you know about Optimus Prime and Megatron; they’re only the most super well-known Transformers! If you aren’t a big TF fan like myself then it wasn’t until 2007 that you permanently added another bot to your  database of robots in disguise. I am of course referring to the most popular bot since Michael …

Along Came a Spider…

Considering what a success Spider-Man is, one can’t help but wonder why he isn’t surrounded by a Spider-Family of similarly named followers. Why isn’t there a spunky Spider-Lad sidekick? Well at least there are some Spider-Ladies and one just got her first action figure!

Embrace the Dark Side!

As far as sci-fi goes I am not much of a Star Wars fan, though I do appreciate a good lightsaber battle. As far as prequels go I find the whole concept cheap and redundant; the SW Anakin-centered trilogy is no exception, but I do like the idea of a red faced, tattooed villain with …

So, that was IronMan 3…

I really don’t want to be THAT guy, its always been something I have fought against, but in this case it just can’t be helped. I entered the movie theater with fancy collectible cup and big bag of popcorn in hand, 3D glasses on head, and high hopes in my heart, only to leave with …
