Daily Toy Review #60: Cherry Pie My Little Pony 2012 Friendship is Magic

Cherry Pie My Little Pony Friendship is Magic 2012 Luggage Series Toy

It’s been a couple months since Hasbro released any new basic ponies, so I haven’t had any to review since Honeybuzz and Snowcatcher before the holidays. I’ve been tiding myself over with Blind Bag Ponies and the Cutie Mark Crusaders set (you can find all the reviews in the Toy Reviews Index), but finally Hasbro has unleashed some new characters into the wild. Cherry Pie is one of two new …

Daily Toy Review #59: Stitch Disney POP! Vinyl Series 1 Figure (Funko)

Today I’ve got something a little bit different from usual to review. If blind-bagged figures are taking America by storm on one front, then vinyl collectible figures are invading from another. It seems like new lines and companies are constantly springing up with their own entry into the designer figure market each year, and one such line entering the fray last year for Funko’s Disney POP! Vinyls. Although I have …

Daily Toy Review #58: Halo Reach Series 6 Brute Major Action Figure (McFarlane Toys)

After reviewing the rehashed Unhelmeted Kat and rust orange HAZOP Spartan over the weekend, it’s time to move onto the good stuff from Halo Reach Series 6–the new figures. The Brute Chieftain in Series 5 was an incredible action figure that became a surprising contender for my vote for the best Halo figure ever made, so perhaps I was looking forward to the Brute Major with unrealistically high expectations. As …

Daily Toy Review #57: Halo Reach Series 6 Unhelmeted Kat Action Figure (McFarlane Toys)

It’s like deja vu! It seems like only yesterday that I was reviewing the original Kat figure from Halo Reach Series 2, but it was actually over a year ago. The first female Spartan figure ever released, Kat was highly-impressive  at the time and a definite victory for fans of female Spartans everywhere. But as good as that first Kat was, with a full year of design innovations and technological …

Daily Toy Review #56: Halo Reach Series 6 HAZOP Spartan Rust Orange Action Figure (McFarlane Toys)

My brother used to make fun of me incessantly for coloring my Spartan bright orange in Halo. It really pissed me off. It pissed me off even more that I suck so bad at Halo he could slaughter my Spartan 25 times without me ever getting a kill on him. Even so, I bonded with the rust orange HAZOP Spartan I chose for my Noble-Six in Halo Reach, and I’d …

CONTEST: Halo Mega Bloks Metal Series Battle Pack GIVEAWAY!

I reviewed the Red Team Battle Pack from Halo Mega Bloks Metal Series 1 today, and I was, uh, not impressed. In fact, I was so not impressed that I’m giving the set away! Here’s what you need to do to enter for this and all future contests: 1. Follow us on Twitter and/or Like us on Facebook. You’ll receive one entry for each, valid for all contests. 2. On …

Daily Toy Review #55: Halo Mega Bloks Metal Series Battle Pack 3 Red Team Figures 2012

Considering I had never heard that there was even going to be a Metal Series of Halo Mega Bloks toys up until a few weeks ago when they were shown at the New York Toy Fair, I was pretty flabbergasted to stumble across the entire line while I was at Wal-Mart today. The Metal Series consists of three battle packs containing six figurines, two small vehicles (a Warthog and a …

LEGO Star Wars Geonosian Cannon 9491 Review w/ Bariss Minifigure

LEGO Star Wars Geonosian Cannon 9491 Set 2012

There are some things I never thought I’d see captured in LEGO form in my life. Zombies are one of them. That notion was shattered last year when LEGO released the awesome Zombie mini-figure in their Series 1 Mini-Figure Blind Bags, and it instantly became the most sought-after of all the blind-bagged mini-figures. So it was only a matter of time until zombies invaded a LEGO galaxy far, far away–and …

Daily Toy Review #53: Marvel Universe Daredevil and Bullseye Comic Pack Action Figures Two-Pack

Daredevil and Bullseye Marvel Universe Greatest Battles Comic Pack Action Figures Two

If ever there were figures from the Marvel Universe line that needed redos, it’s Daredevil and Bullseye. Both characters were in the inaugural series of Marvel Universe figures, and both figures were complete crap. They shared the same body with mediocre articulation and awful proportions, and the paints were terrible (especially on Bullseye). We’ve had repaints of both those figures in the line and a cool-looking Shadowland Daredevil, but this …
