I am a big fan of Medicom’s MAFEX line of figures for the Dark Knight trilogy. When the Cop version of the Joker dropped down to $30 at Entertainment Earth I quickly scooped one up. Lately, Medicom has been inching the prices up on newer figures making the decision to add certain figures a little harder. This was one of those figures. I would have never see myself getting the cop version on its own. Why would someone want the cop version of the Joker that appears on the screen for less than a minute? Or a regular Bruce Wayne with a recycled Harvey Dent body? Well it’s because Medicom has been adding accessories for previous figures in later ones to make them more appealing to collectors. So, in this particular case, I was after the cop version for the alternate arms and head for my previously purchased Joker figure.
I have never really been a Black Friday shopper. I know many people where Black Friday is as much of a family tradition as Thanksgiving itself. I have nothing against it, I just rather spend that time eating left overs and decorating for Christmas. This year could be different though, thanks to Lego. You see their highly anticipated 1989 Batmobile will go on sale Black Friday. I know there is the internet and I could just order it online from the comfort of my home, but where is the fun in that?
So, I was at the mall this past weekend and decided to swing past the Lego Store to do a little recon. The guy working the floor was just as excited as I was when I asked him about it. He replied, “I got a surprise for you, we just finished building it.” He then ran to the back to grab it so I could drool on it in person. (more…)
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…)
