Why I don’t need to go to Comic Cons

Nashville had their third annual Wizard World Comic Con and I was there to check it out. I usually just go because of my interests in the comic book and collectible scene (and get an occasional autograph), but this year, I couldn't help but grab some collectibles. Now for the past few years, I have resisted the seemingly high prices of... Read more →

Review: Hasbro Marvel Legends Infinite Series 6″ Misty Knight

  If you are a Hasbro Marvel Legends fan, then you already know that this has been a busy year because they have been pumping out Marvel Legends figures left and right with no end at sight. I can't even begin to name all of the characters they have or will put out this year alone, including the Build-A-Figures and exclusives, but I... Read more →

Preview: Kotobukiya 1/6 Scale Black Panther

I'm not a big statue guy, but if I see something I like and it's in the realm of possibility for me to own it, I may pick it up.  The new Kotobukiya Black Panther statue is one of those collectibles that I have to have. Beautifully sculpted, posed, and painted, and reasonably priced, this is a must have for any Black Panther fan. This... Read more →

  Okay, y'all better appreciate this one...I had to dig through four boxes of stuff to find this figure. This was actually a purchase I made around three years ago when I first started the site and I always wanted to review it, but like everything, it got pushed back as I acquired other figures I wanted to review. It's been awhile since... Read more →

Remember, I'm about 18 months behind, so if some of these seem old, it's because they are...I'm hoping to catch up to just being a year behind soon.  Let's get to the books - (as always, possible SPOILER alert)   IDW - Locke...

Review: Hot Toys 1/6 Scale Gamora (from Guardians of the Galaxy)

  The one thing about Hot Toys, it sometimes takes about a year after a movie comes out before their movie-related products start showing up. Case in point, last summer's surprise hit movie, "Guardians of the Galaxy" is well over a year old now, but Hot Toys has still only produced about half of the products they have announced (including...

What I’m Reading this Week…

Valiant - Shadowman 12 The verdict is still kind of out on Shadowman. I love the premise, but at this point we're 12 issues in, and there still doesn't seem to be a real established storyline. The hero, Shadowman, still seems kind of shallow. The stories read okay but I really wish there was more depth. At any rate, even at this point you... Read more →
