Quick Review: DC Collectibles DC Comics Cover Girls 9″ Vixen Statue

Back again with another quick review. This time around, we have a statue of DC Superheroine, animal-powered Vixen. Vixen as you may well know has gained popularity of late since her character has shown up twice in the "Arrow-verse"...in the show "Arrow" and currently in DC Legends of Tomorrow (well, I guess her great-grandmother, or...

Quick Review: McFarlane Toys Color Tops 7″ Spawn Rebirth Figure

I remember back in the 1990's when McFarlane Toys first started and the quality toys they put out then. They were easily then what NECA is today. They were the go to for beautifully sculpted toys. Unfortunately (or fortunately depending on the point of view), they were known back then as little more than "articulated statues"...once they... Read more →

Review: Art Figures 1/6 Scale Dead Soldier (aka KO Deadshot from “Suicide Squad”)

  I want to say this without sounding like I'm slamming Suicide Squad...it had potential, but it just didn't get there for me. When people ask me what I thought about Suicide Squad, I shrug and say, "It was okay." To me, I think the only thing I liked about the movie were the bits and pieces from Will Smith as Deadshot. I liked Deadshot so... Read more →

Review: Action Toys 1/6 Scale Captain Steven Hiller (from “Independence Day”)

  The search continues as I further my quest to find a good action figure representation of Will Smith. This time around, we have Captain Steven Hiller as portrayed by Will Smith in the 1996 classic, Independence Day. Over twenty years later and I really hope we have progressed from the crap they tried to sell to us back then (seen over to... Read more →

  My pick for the coveted 2016 "Black Action Figure of the Year" goes to... Hasbro's Marvel Legends Series Black Panther from the "Captain America: Civil War" Movie Hasbro has had a busy year. They have put out close to 90 Marvel Legends 6" figures. They have diversified their selection of Black Action Figures from normally obscure... Read more →

Review: Subway Toys 1/6th Scale Survivor (“I Am Legend” Will Smith)

  Well if you didn't know by now, I'm now on a Will Smith themed review binge (don't worry, I still have one or two War Machine reviews down the road, but I like to mix it up some). This time around we have Robert Neville played by Will Smith from the movie "I Am Legend."  Or what we actually have is a "random" Survivor figure from the... Read more →

Review: Mattel DC Multiverse Suicide Squad Deadshot (12″)

  Happy New Year! Starting the year off strong with another review. A few months ago, I reviewed the Mattel Deadshot 6" action figure before the movie (see here). To put it bluntly, I was not impressed. It what seemed to be the bare minimum, Mattel gave us a bland, almost sadly gratuitous action figure to go with the substandard, and... Read more →

Review: Hot Toys [Bootleg] 1/6 Scale Blade (from Blade II)

  I remember when I purchased my first Hot Toys action figure, which coincidentally was the only figure I have given a perfect score on here - the Avengers Nick Fury (actor Samuel L. Jackson). I remember how exciting and new it was to enter into the realm of high end collecting. I wanted to keep getting that feeling and searched for more.... Read more →
