Have you ever bought an action figure to review, purely because you didn’t have anything else, lest you break your self-promise to write a review once a week, every week for a year- even if it means maxing out your overdraft because you never check your bank balance, running the risk of having your cardContinue reading “Mego Will Riker review”
Did you watch that Masters of the Universe (MOTU) Revelation show on the Netflix? I sort of watched a bit of it while heating up some quiche and I hated it! Where was the classic characters and locations? Why did Man-At-Arms have none of his iconic armour? Why did Orko have black, curly hair andContinue reading “Masters of the Universe Masterverse: Revelation Evil-Lyn review”
The 1994 movie, The Crow is a bit of a weird phenomenon in that it has two fanbases: The action/martial arts movie fans who saw it on its theatrical release. Then years later it’s rediscovered by goth/alt metal fans who gave the movie a cult status as a gothic tragedy and simultaneously a tribute toContinue reading “Diamond Select SDCC The Crow review”
In the late 80s, everyone and their step brother was going wild for the Teenage Mutant Ninja (or “Hero” in the UK) Turtles (TMNT). It was a pop culture phenomenon- there was the cartoon, comics, bubble bath, frozen pizza, a movie, but mostly the toys. They overshadowed everything for one insane year. Like Cabbage PatchContinue reading “Neca Ultimate Krang review”
During the 90s, when professional wrestling had entered a boom period, you could find all sorts of wrestling in magazines, obscure satellite channels, and the clandestine cottage industry of tape traders. That’s right, kids. We used to gladly pay the best part of ten pounds for a second generation VHS bootleg of Best of theContinue reading “Chella Toys Wrestling Megastars Hayabusa review”
Since you didn’t ask, one of the things I like most about All Elite Wrestling (AEW)- apart from the rocking tag division and Abadon-is how they have embraced the more esoteric wrestling acts that some might say shouldn’t be given a mainstream platform (see Orange Cassidy). Yet AEW took a chance on a weird gimmick-Continue reading “AEW Unrivaled Jungle Boy review”
Is there a culture of nepotism in the world of Masters of the Universe (MOTU)? Old Duncan is the Man-At-Arms, his daughter, Teela, is captain of the guard, and now his brother has a job fighting Skeletor. Who’s running the HR in the Eternian palace? Nevertheless, Fisto (yes, that really is the name of aContinue reading “Masters of the Universe Origins Fisto review”
If there’s one thing I really dislike about toy collecting right now is all the unnecessary chasing and the people who exploit it. Last year for Power-Con, the official US convention for all things Masters of the Universe (MOTU), some exclusive figures were sold. The one that got my attention was the “Lords of power”Continue reading “MOTU Origins: Lords of Power Mer-Man review”
Look up the expression “better late than never” and you’ll find a picture of my “to do” pile. This includes several model kits, a few custom figures that I started but have yet to finish, and some toys I bought for the purpose of customizing but never even started. Well it’s high time to reduceContinue reading “Assault Suits Valken model build part 1”
One thing Mattel had never been shy of is the reusing of toy parts. In all fairness it’s a practice that every toy company does (or do you think it’s a bespoke body underneath the costume of every Hot Toys figure?), but in the 80s their Masters of the Universe (MOTU) line would commit anContinue reading “MOTU Origins Faker review”
