Arriving comfortably after the Avengers movie line, the Amazing Spider-Man toys by Hasbro were officially released …

“G.I. Joe is the world’s greatest special-ops fighting force with top-secret ninja training from the toughest of masters. Led by ultimate ninja commando Roadblock, these elite heroes defend the globe from the evil forces of Cobra.” …WHAT?!?! Sorry, I had to get that out of my system. I’m okay now. But seriously–what?!

Star Wars Movie Heroes Rocket-Firing Anakin Skywalker Review MH14 Action Figure

Movie Heroes Anakin Skywalker Action Figure MH14 Moon Backdrop

Longtime readers will remember know that one of my many dark secrets is that I love obnoxious children characters in movies. The more obnoxious, the better. Wesley Crusher, Wheelie, and the subject of today’s review: kid Anakin Skywalker. I reviewed the Vintage Collection Anakin Skywalker Padawan figure way back in January, and I had planned on reviewing the complementary Movie Heroes Anakin Skywalker figure in his Podracing gear a few …

TOY REVIEW: Transformers Prime Knock Out Deluxe Revealers Wave 3 Action Figure (Hasbro)

Back of Knock Out Transformers Prime Deluxe Revealers Toy

My reviews for the latest wave of Transformers Prime toys are pretty much topsy-turvy of how I expected them to be. I wasn’t looking forward to Hot Shot or the Vehicon much at all, but in my reviews I had to concede that both are outstanding Transformers Prime deluxe toys that far exceeded my expectations. Those revies cover all but the character I was most excited for in this assortment: …

Daily Toy Review #98: Star Wars Vintage Collection Luke Skywalker Lightsaber Construction VC87 Deleted Scenes Action Figure

Emperor Palpatine Duel with Star Wars Vintage Collection Luke Skywalker Lightsaber Construction VC87 Deleted Scenes Action Figure

Every once in a while I’ll hear a little too much negativity toward a figure and be jaded against it before I even get it myself. Such was the case with the Star Wars Vintage Collection Luke Skywalker Lightsaber Construction action figure from the Blu-Ray Deleted Scenes. I previously reviewed and mostly enjoyed Sandstorm Lando, Sandstorm Leia, and the Mon Calamari Rebel Pilot from this wave, but going in I …

Daily Toy Review #94: Star Wars Vintage Collection Rebel Pilot Mon Calamari VC91 Deleted Scenes Action Figure

Packaged Rebel Pilot Mon Calamari VC91Star Wars Vintage Collection Deleted Scenes Action Figure

Is it wrong that the figure I was most excited for from the Deleted Scenes on the Star Wars Blu-Rays is the unidentified Mon Calamari pilot from the Battle of Endor in Return of the Jedi? Supposedly this guy is an A-Wing Pilot (as he’s wearing the typical A-Wing Pilot flight suit), but the cockpit he’s in doesn’t seem to be an A-Wing at all. So perhaps he’s actually borrowing …

Daily Toy Review #93: Star Wars Vintage Collection Princess Leia Sandstorm Outfit VC88 Deleted Scenes Action Figure

Star Wars Vintage Sandstorm Princess Leia and Vinylmation Rafiki Figures

Last time I reviewed the Sandstorm Outfit Lando Calrissian from the Blu-Ray Deleted Scenes series of the Star Wars Vintage Collection, so I don’t think anyone is going to be thunderstruck that I’m following up with Lando’s partner in crime from that series: Princess Leia Sandstorm Outfit. Despite the fact that the fabled sandstorm scene from Return of the Jedi didn’t exactly set my world on fire, Sandstorm Lando surprised …

Daily Toy Review #92: Star Wars Vintage Collection Lando Calrissian Sandstorm Outfit VC89 Deleted Scenes Action Figure

Sandstorm Lando vs. Beast Wars Quickstrike

After more than a decade and a half and releasing over 2,000 Star Wars action figures, the well is starting to run a little bit dry for Hasbro. There just aren’t that many movie characters to release as figures that haven’t been done before, and there are certainly no unmade variants of the main cast left. Or so it seemed! I thought that the Lando wearing Han Solo’s clothes he …
