Welcome to the latest offering from your loving Uncle Stan! This fantastic new offering is a Walmart exclusive. So if you roam the streets, checking all the stores weeping and wailing and gnashing your teeth, complaining at the employees at Target/Toys R Us because they have no idea what you are looking for, well, you’re […]

The Coolest Halo Toy EVER

The Coolest Halo Toy EVER

To help commemorate the ten year anniversary (yes…it’s been nearly 10 years since we first met Master Chief) of the release of Halo: Combat Evolved on the original Xbox game system, McFarlane toys plans on releasing a toy ripped right from the game itself.

Damn, another magazine bites the dust…but maybe, just maybe it’ll come back harder, better, faster, and stronger as a website.

 

Review: Star Wars 2010 AT-AT

Review: Star Wars 2010 AT-AT

I finally got around to picking up the BAT-AT. For those of you that don’t know, that stands for Big All Terrain Armored Transport (Big because it is closer to the correct scale than the previous version that has been re-released over the past decades). Sometimes it’s called The Walker, or, as an ex of […]

 

Marvel Universe Ghost Rider

Marvel Universe Ghost Rider

One of the newest editions to the Marvel Universe line is Ghost Rider. Personally I have never been a Ghost Rider fan, but this figure is amazing. Like many other figures Ghost Rider has a “recycled” body, he has the same body as the A.I.M. Soldier. As such he has a ball jointed- head, shoulders, […]

 

Marvel Masterworks Galactus

Marvel Masterworks Galactus

When I first heard a few months ago that Hasbro was going to release a Galactus figure in the 3-3/4 scale, I was incredibly excited. I think that Hasbro releases some of the best toys in this scale, also I love Galactus! He was a childhood favorite of mine, and my interest in him is […]

 

Hasbro Star Wars Vintage – Episode 3 Clone Trooper Review

Hasbro Star Wars Vintage – Episode 3 Clone Trooper Review

This week, Hasbro released the ”Revenge of the Sith” wave of their Vintage line. Today, I would like to look at the Clone Trooper. I already have hordes of Clone/Storm Troopers in my collection already, but I was interested in seeing what changes, if any, have been made besides the packaging. Before I look at […]

 

Hasbro Star Wars Vintage – Luke and Leia Review

Hasbro Star Wars Vintage – Luke and Leia Review

It’s August again. August and I have always had a love/hate relationship. I love it because it means the launch of the years new Star Wars toy lines, and the stores a resetting the shelves for Christmas, I hate it because it also means a price increase in said toy line, and stores are thinking […]

 

Marvel Universe- Archangel Review

Marvel Universe- Archangel Review

I finally got my hands on the “2010 Fan’s Choice Winner!” Archangel. Last year Hasbro gave the fans an opportunity to choose what figure they wanted the most, and Archangel was the winner. I have been looking for this figure for approximately three months. With the recent release of the variant I was wondering if […]

 

Toy Collecting 101

Toy Collecting 101

The problem with Comicon. Today my Comicon Captain America Exclusive showed up from hasbrotoyshop.com. It is an incredibly cool toy if you are an “Ultimates” fan. Then my friend told me he had just ordered his off of eBay and only paid $36, for his. I asked him why he had paid so much, and […]

Geek Dad Report: Playing with Toys again

Geek Dad Report: Playing with Toys again

I was an imaginative kid. My Ninja Turtles caught ghosts with my Ghostbusters action figures.  We used to record homemade movies holding our toys above the back of the couch. Strewn around us an assortment of toys hidden from the recording film and we spoke from a poorly written script.  Now, as an adult I […]

There are 500 idiots with holes in their pockets…

Who I am sure are salivating and/or fapping about the fact that TriForce Sales is nearly done making 1:1 scale Lancer rifles from Gears of War / Gears of War 2. These won’t come cheap though, this isn’t quite the same as getting a retardedly long piece of metal and calling it Sephiroth’s Muramasa.
