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…)
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…)
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 know many were expecting their next reveal to be the super predator, but this is cool none the less.
Back to the fugitive. After finally seeing him in the first trailer I couldn’t wait to see what NECA was going to bring to the table with their figure.

I made my regular Friday trip to Toys R Us on my way home from work on Friday and was pleased to find they still had the Ultimate Jungle Hunter from NECA on the shelf. I was also hoping, but kinda glad I didn’t, to find the new Terminator figure. I can only afford so much NECA in one day. The weather is finally starting to act like spring up here in the Pacific Northwest, so I made it a point to throw him in my pack before my weekend hike. (more…)
