Unboxed: NECA Halloween 2 Ultimate Michael Myers

It’s been a busy few weeks so it has been awhile since we have done an unboxing of any sort. It’s not like we have been doing them often to begin with.

Our latest find was NECA’s Halloween 2 Ultimate Michael Myers (on Halloween too). Halloween 2 is solid sequel to the 1978 original which had Michael again going after Laurie, except this time in a hospital. (more…)

Unboxed: NECA Aliens Power Loader P-5000 Deluxe

If you have seen Aliens you are more then familiar with the Power Loader.  Fictionally built by real life Caterpillar in the movie, Ripley impresses the men with her ability to drive one. Spoiler warning, she later uses those skills to ultimately defeat the Queen Xenomorph in the climatic final battle. (more…)

Unboxed: NECA NYCC Exclusive Batman vs Alien 2-pk

The highly anticipated Batman/Xenomorph two pack from NECA is finally out and it was worth the wait. We were lucky enough to grab one during the online presale and got to avoid the lines at the con. Glad we did, because the line quickly grew around the booth seconds after the doors opened every morning. (more…)

Unboxed: Mezco Toyz One:12 Collective Commissioner Jim Gordon

After a busy few weeks I am finally able to enjoy some new additions to the personal collection.  One of those is the new Mezco Toyz One:12 Jim Gordon.  Sure, I needed a Jim Gordon figure to help Bats chase down the bad guys, but the bat signal was the main reason I got this figure.  I know I am not the only one with that mentality.

The box is the usual One:12 box, but bigger; with the outer sleeve being die cut to enhance the artwork.   Out of the box you get 2 heads, 6 hands, removable trench coat, removable watch, removable GCPD vest, walkie talkie, GCPD badge, gun and holster, blast FX, and, of course, rotatable Bat Signal with light-up function.  You also get the standard display stand and post.

Unboxed: Mezco Toyz One:12 Collective Clown Prince of Crime Joker Action Figure

When I saw this figure in New York a couple of years ago, I knew I wanted it in my collection once it was finally released. 

Plus, now that he is finally here, he can play the perfect advisory to my Onyx Sovereign Knight Batman.  I like how Mezco takes the risk and comes up with versions of their comic book characters that are uniquely their own.  I think this was one of the reasons I liked the look of this figure so much.
