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…)
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. (more…)
After waiting for what seemed like forever, my ultimate John Connor finally arrived. I didn’t even wait to take pictures of it in the box, I just opened it right up. I have been looking forward to this figure for a long time. All the other exclusives I wanted I struck out on, except this one. (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 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.

NECA makes a lot of awesome figures that cross quite a few different genres. This can be problematic when faced with two figures you want and only one in the budget. After what seemed like a dry spell, NECA’s shipping calendar is all of a sudden full. It also doesn’t help that summer is here, and with the kids out, my Target runs have become less frequent. Take my latest trip for “toilet paper” for example. (more…)
