Since I am still a slave to corporate America, the post and reviews have been lacking. I have plenty of new NECA figures left to get to, but wanted to get to my favorite of the bunch, Ace Ventura Pet Detective. (more…)
I’m sure we are missing tons but here is our best attempt at rounding up what Hasbro had at Toy Fair this weekend. (more…)
Toy Fair is upon us again, and I find myself asking the same question. Why do I continue to choose NYCC over Toy Fair? Every year I also tell myself to get my act together because I have the resources to make both happen. In the meantime, for those of us who can’t attend, there are plenty of others out there sharing their experiences. Our go to for all the current Toy Fair happenings is always @cobrashowjoes on twitter. We seem to be on the same brain waves as these guys, so it’s always fun watching them share their experience. Expect to see a lot from them. We will try and share as much as possible but our main focus will be NECA’s reveals. They are one of our favorite toy makers and crush it every year. Judging from their Twitter feed, it seems this year could be extra special. (more…)
I have been having killer luck lately when it comes to finding NECA goodness in the wild. On my weekly Target visit I found the new Predator wave and just one Ultimate Gremlin hiding behind some T2 figures. I grabbed the gremlin and will have to wait on the Predators, you can only afford so much.
In case you haven’t noticed, we are sort of changing our focus to mostly unboxings and actual in hand pictures and reviews.
That said, on to our next half assed review. I missed a few weeks at my local comic shop so I was already bracing for the higher total. Keeping that in mind I tried hard to do anything beside walk in, get my pull box and leave. But of course, the devil popped up on my shoulder and told me to go to check out the NECA section. You know, for market research. (more…)
