Marvel Universe: Storm - Auction ALERT!!!

Hey its Storm! I needed a Storm, now with a giant Sentinel running around this place. Overall, she's a slam grand of a Marvel Universe figure except for my classic beef.

No display stand!!!

OH WHERE TO BEGIN! That all the other Marvel Universe figures I have so far, have the best display stands on the market? Or that being a lady lady with a light frame figure, with heavy cape, makes it impossible to stand her without hunchiback?

Then to top things off, instead of killer display stand, we get a "Collectible Comic Shot" ARE YOU KIDDING ME? A Little postage, print on raw card stock, is collectable? Really??? I would have expected that in the 90's, and we called them POGs, and they did stuff! I am half tempted to ebay this damn thing... In fact, thats what I am going to do...


Back to blog antics, I let Storm shoot her own card, revealing the Invisible Girl who was holding it up!

And to close, maybe if Juggernaut didn't use so much plastic, the would have had some left for Strom's stand. :(

So yeah, go ahead and get into the bidding war NOW

Squishy Soft Plastic Easter Chic Ball with Strobe Effect

I couldn't just go to the store for boring old batteries, so I picked up this novelty $1 Easter toy up too. I think it might have special powers too. It's squeezable, and reforms back to shape.

The trippy cool part is the little strobe light inside...







Now that was weird.

New Thundercats 4" Tygra, Wave 2, Part 2

How did Tygra integrate himself into the other new Thundercats group?

He first took liking to Wiley Kat, as they have similar hair features.

The Lion-O encounter did not go so well...

Once Lion-O was out of the way, Tygra went for Cheetara. He looped his whip around her, made her disappear, and now I can't find her.

Tygra was then able to strengthen his bounds with his Step-Dad Claudus, or whatever they are in relation to.

And finally, shockingly graphic for the second time in one week, Tygra takes down Mumm-Ra in a really inappropriate manner.

New Thundercats 4" Tygra, Wave 2

I was hesitant to buy a Tygra, as with his Militarized look, I didn't care too much for him. But the other day when I had several of the other figures fighting on the kitchen table, I realized I needed another lead character in the fight. I found this one left on the shelf, and he is apart of the second main wave of figures. I am not really sure, what they changed, except that his blue whip is ...better? Its really rubbery and flexible, really nice, as I was worried it was going to be rigid.

I am pleasantly surprised with Tygra. He is a solid Thundercat figure. Maybe more so than the others, as he is balanced, non restricted by armor, and painted pretty well. I am not too in love with his plastic gun on the toy or show, but you can take it off and huck if you wish.

So now this leaves the problem, I have just enough new Thundercats to warrant buying the rest. Darn, I was really trying to just buy a select few. At least they are a fun, colorful, playable toy line that works well.

Stay tuned to see how Tygra fits in with the other cats...

GI Joe HAVOC Cartoon; Day 4

Forever ago, I started a small cartoon project on my favorite GI Joe vehicle the H.A.V.O.C. My last update was Monday September 27th, 2010! Yeah, quite a while ago!! I'm not sure what even sparked my interest in this again, but the past few days, I added a ton of new vehicles to the show. Hey wait, where is the HAVOC? Looks like a redesign in progress. I hope to have somethings moving in the next few weeks, so check back in July 2014 for the big throw down.

One HIGHLY inappropriate GI Joe Cycle Armour use...

A keen eye asks why are the Cycle Armour's handle bars located where they are at. Scarlet figured it out a little too fast.

G.I. Joe The Pursuit of Cobra City Strike Cycle Armour with Ashiko Part 3

What is the final verdict on the Cycle Armour suit you ask? I would say 50/50. I am amazed it works as well as it does. Usually suits like this are really a mess. This suit IS a mess but with enough interesting features it actually is kind of cool to play with. Yes its a nightmare of pieces and parts. The Cycle does look pretty cool because of all those parts layered together. The Suit is a little clumsy, the poor figure's groin likes to go out with all that weight. The Cycle also a little difficult to put back together again.

I suppose its a good anchor piece if you like the Accelerator Suit deal. I imagine that this was intended for the technological theme. In the end though, I would stick with War Machine for a real armour suit.

G.I. Joe The Pursuit of Cobra City Strike Cycle Armour with Ashiko Part 2

Last time on Cycle Armour GI Joe guy, we saw a GI Joe on a cycle. This time we see that the Cycle does indeed become a powerful Suit of Armour. How does the Armour Suit handle a hand rail you ask?


I guess it looks good in concept, but functions a little clunky in reality.

Maybe next time I will say more about this.

2012 Happy Meal Star Wars Force Spinners

No you are not experiencing Deja-vu, I did few "Directors" cuts and made this "Special Edition" version for the Spinners review. With luck, I won't have to change it again. If you would like to give it a second look, or have not seen it yet, please watch and share in the spinning mayhem.

G.I. Joe The Pursuit of Cobra City Strike Cycle Armour with Ashiko

I did a visit to Grocery Outlet to pick up one of these $9.99 bikes (thanks to thatboywhite for spotting). It also forms a nasty little armour suit, but more on that some other day. The real treat is this ramp...

Walmart was selling Tech Deck Skate ramp sets for $7.50, this is only a fraction of the pieces. I plan to use them for mayhem and display stand purposes. Now lets try the bike!

It was a difficult climb, as I had to use my finger.

Triumph at the top, things look good!

OH! Well, this guy needs more ramp stunt work.

New 2012 Thundercats 4" Claudus the Action Figure

Back when I watched Thundercats in the 80's my family had a cat named Claude. That was pure coincidence to Old King Claudus here. Showing up on shelves about now is the second wave of figures for the New Thundercats show. I spotted the 4" Mumm-Ra, Panthro with Metal glove things, and Lion-o with slightly altered things. I wish the line would concentrate on some more villains. Back in the day they made a figure for any old bad guy. Safari Joe anyone, anyone? There have already been plenty of one episode villains, so come on Ban-Dai, get these a making.

In an ultra stab of laziness, I haven't opened Claudus yet. But at least I posted something tonight right?

Star Wars Fighter Pods - The Smallest Figures

I tried to avoid these things like the plaque, because I know they would be highly highly addictive. Just one taste of a blind starter pack, just one taste. For $2.99 at Target, you get a pod ball, and two Squinkie like Star Wars plastics. They are harder, then I would have imagined, the imitation Squinkie I last played with was squishier. No jointing, so I guess you can't really call it an "action figure." At 3/4" they are about the size of a regular figures head.

Like the capsules that Squinkies live in, Star Wars guys live in Fighter Pods. The pod is actually kind of interesting, it twist locks tightly around the toy. Then you huck as hard as you can into someone's eye.

So thats it, A Clone Trooper and Boba Fett. These will be the only two I get.

Marvel Universe 16" Sentinel - The Biggest Action Figure

Behold the mighty Sentinel!

Amazing figure, or would you say Miniature Robot Person Thing? The Sentinel is huge, and rightly so, as that is what the Sentinel is, HUGE! Safe to say, the Sentinel is now the largest Action Figure in the Toy Museum.

For such an enormous hunk of plastic, he functions pretty well. Full of joints and electronics, the Sentinel is not to disappoint. There are only a couple of loose joints in his left arm, but with so much weight, thats almost expected. His knees were so tight, I almost hurt myself trying to bend them. The Sentinel is well balanced for standing, I had no problem keeping him upright.

The sound effects are chilling. I do wish they were separated into sound effects and phrases. That way you would have more control in battle. It is fun though, he complains about his power core draining, and when it drains he talks slower and shuts down. Then he fake ejects the core, and apparently is better again (I found a neat substitute Power Core that I will show next time).

The Color Scheme is balanced. I have heard in some circles, its not 90's Cartoon or Comic accurate? Really, why would that be a problem? I see a little cracking in the leg paint, but that might be on purpose. It doesn't really matter when he's stepping on Wolverine anyways (oh yeah, Wolverine comes with him).

I am so fortunate to find this toy on such a great deal At Walmart. So good, I might have bought another one for troop building, and convinced a friend to buy another one, Bwa-ha ha. Sentinel's are more fun when attacking in groups. Of course, now I need to find more X-Men to fight it with.

I wonder what the smallest figure is in the Toy Museum? See next time.

2012 Happy Meal Star Wars Phantom Menace 3D Spinner top toys and Build a Bear

Are you kidding me? Two Star Wars video reviews in one day! Dan you must lay off the Death Sticks! I had to make an exception on these Star Wars Spinners, they were fun to play with, not sure I would need the whole set this time though. They just came out today, so collect away!

Star Wars the Phantom Menace 3D Action figure review with CommTech reader

A review of Star Wars the Phantom Menace Action figures from 1999, with the CommTech Reader device. I wonder what these 2D figures will look like in 3D.

Took me an extra day to get this uploaded as the file is large. Yeah, yeah, its not HD like I try to play it off as, I didn't want to upload a 3 GB file. So I done graded a tad for Youtube. It is more clear now, and full widescreen shooting helps a ton.

Star Wars the Phantom Menace in 3D

Tomorrow, weather permitting, I will do a lengthly discourse on the 2D figures from Episode 1. I had to really dig down to find some of these guys, and now I really need to address some of my container hoarding tendencies. Anyhow, check back late tomorrow, for some REAL fun.
