I finally recovered from my week in San Diego and finally put the kids back in school, so I think it's time to actually report on my first trip to the San Diego Comic Con International.  Let me say, it was a lot. Let's get the bad out of the way:  If I got bumped into even one more time, I thought I was about to lose it.  And... Read more →

Review: Marvel Legends Series MJ (From movie “Spider-Man: Homecoming”)

  "Spider-Man: Far From Home" opened this past Tuesday so I thought now was a good time to crack open my Target Exclusive Marvel Legends Spider-Man/MJ 2-pack and review the MJ figure.  This 2-pack is actually advertised as being from "Spider-Man: Homecoming", but hey, better late than never.

We end this wave with another figure that I thought for awhile that we may have to live without: M'Baku, leader of the Jabari Tribe.

Review: Marvel Legends Series BP Wave 2 – Black Panther (Kinetic-Charged)

  We're down to the "Endgame" with this wave...only this Black Panther figure and the M'Baku Build-A-Figure left.  I know if I stick to it, I can get them done before I hit the movies on Friday. This is definitely a Black Panther figure you want in your collection.  Yes, it does have a M'Baku Build-A-Figure part, but it also features... Read more →
