Review: Star Wars Black Series 3.75″ Bastila Shan

After having access to the game for nearly three years, I finally played and completed Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic, and yeah. In case you didn’t know, it’s a good game. Obviously, the first thing I thought of after (and during) playing the game was: “I need toys of these characters.” So I hop … Continue reading

Review: Star Wars Black Series 3.75″ Darth Plagueis

Remember that part in Revenge of the Sith when Anakin and Palpatine were watching some weird bubble-opera show and Palpatine started telling Anakin about some guy called “Darth Plagueis the Wise” who could stop people from dying but then was killed by his student? Well, it turns out Darth Plagueis was Palpatine’s Sith Master. As … Continue reading

Review: KFC Mugen Scope (Teal)

When it comes to independent unofficial Transformers companies, you generally have two kinds: you have the high-end, highest quality producers with a good, well-received releases like FansProject, MakeToys, and Mastermind Creations, and then you have, well, the rest, where quality begins to vary. Keith’s Fantasy Club is in the latter category, with very sketchy QC, questionable … Continue reading

Review: Halo Mega Bloks Containment Outpost Patrol

KURT WHAT ARE YOU DOING BUYING CHEAP LEGO KNOCKOFFS HOW DARE YOU GIVE THOSE DIRTY THIEVES YOUR MONEY INSTEAD OF BUYING LEGO LIKE A NORMAL DECENT PERSON With that out of the way, Mega Bloks have come a long way from their shaky origins. Thanks to their popular Halo licensing and progressive minifigure design, Mega Bloks … Continue reading

Review: Transformers ROTF Voyager Stratosphere

How about a blast from the past? Revenge of the Fallen is widely (and correctly) considered the worst of the Transformers films, but what many fans take for granted is that the second movie’s toyline was the peak of engineering for movie-style toys. This line brought us the near-miraculous (for its time) Leader Optimus Prime, the … Continue reading

Review: Transformers MP-12G G2 Sideswipe

MP-12 Lambor (Sideswipe for those of the Hasbro side of the world) was a game-changer for the Masterpiece line. His release marked the first (or second, if you count MP-11) of the MP releases to adhere to the new cartoon-accurate scale standard set by MP-10 Convoy (Optimus Prime), and his overall fantastic-ness sold skeptics on the new and … Continue reading

Review: Transformers AOE Slug vs. Stinger 2-Pack

If there’s one thing Hasbro really loves to do for Transformers movie lines, it’s digging up old figures from previous toylines, repainting them into new characters, and selling them as movie characters. We saw a ton of that in the first movie line, with mostly repaints of the fairly recent Cybertron toys and even an … Continue reading

Review: Game of Thrones Legacy Collection Tyrion Lannister (Exclusive)

Following up on my Agent Venom review, I returned to another Walgreen’s location during one of my trips home to check up on their selection of the Drugstore Threesome. Where the first store I investigated had nothing but a full endcap of Agent Venoms, this location had a full endcap of Funko Game of Thrones … Continue reading

Review: Transformers United Axalon

If TakaraTomy is good at one thing, it’s coming up with some very off-the-wall ideas for Transformers releases. While the first example that comes to my head is Takara’s escalating foray into madness known as Transformers Cloud, today we’ll be looking at a bit of a tamer craziness, yet no less odd. Sharkticon came out as … Continue reading

Review: Marvel Legends Agent Venom

What’s with Walgreen’s getting so many exclusives lately? I remember a while back picking up the Halo 4 CIO Spartan because I thought it was cool, then finding out it was exclusive. Exclusive Halo toys didn’t seem like much of a big deal, but now Walgreen’s is boasting some very sought-after toys, with the Star Wars Black … Continue reading
