  1. Checking in with some new GI Joe goodness. I picked this up around the holiday for $20 and I feel it's a pretty great value at that price. However after Christmas a lot of these are getting marked down and you can find them even cheaper. Definitely worth checking out if you're a fan of Snake Eyes. Full review of all the figures ahead. This is one of my favorite Snake Eyes to date. Infinite Hollywood: GI Joe Rescue Mission Thanks for reading.
  2. Thanks in part to a secret love of Captain Cold, today I'm looking at one of the brand new, hard to find JLU 3 packs. It's the Captain Cold and Captain Boomerang versus Flash pack. I found this by pure luck the other day at Target and I'm really glad I did. It's still faltered by all the weaknesses of the Justice League line itself, but regardless I find myself beaming with excitement over these guys. Infinite Hollywood: JLU 3 Pack Review: Two Captains and a Flash Thanks for reading.
  3. The company has made some toys of decent quality before. Click the link to my website, I have some reviews there of the figures they made. The link is in the article.
  4. Dunna nunna nunna nunna dunna nunna nunna nunna BATMAN! Bat-MAAAAAAAAAAN! KERPOWW! THUNKK! SPLAT! Today I'm taking my first leap into the world of the Batman Brave & The Bold Action League. This marks the first time I've committed to any of these small scale figures that look like they belong with a french fry and a 6 piece McNugget. How do I like this Batmobile, Batman and Clock King? The answer might surprise you. Infinite Hollywood: Batman Action League: Batmobile with Batman & Clock King Review Check it out or Gotham City may never be safe again!
  5. AT LAST! AT LAST! Venture Brother toys are on the way! AFI's own Jason Lenzi and the crew over at BifBangPow have made it a reality. Check out the full scoop: GO TEAM VENTURE!
  6. It's time to get jiggy with Jon Pertwee! As my final review for 2009, I'm taking a look at the two pack of Jon Pertwee as the Third Doctor and one of his old nemesis, the Sea Devil. It's chocked full of Doctor Who goodness and it's powerful enough to reverse the polarity of the neutron flow. Check it out! Infinite Hollywood: Doctor Who Review: 3rd Doctor & Sea Devil Thanks for reading. Enjoy the New Year!
  7. Stand by for adventure! It's the 1950's version of Jay Piscopo's comic character, Commander X! This figure is based off the vintage styled character and it's made in a vintage styled toy. Working together with Doc Mego and his crew, the folks at Capt'N Eli and Nemo Publishing have come up with this awesome figure. I'm taking a look at the 1950's version today with a full review of our hero. Infinite Hollywood: 1950's Commander X Figure Review Thanks for reading and don't forget this guy is still on sale until Thursday!
  8. Hey guys, Jim Sena, President of SphereWerx partners with EMCE Toys stopped by to clear up some stuff about the Big Jim base body for Mattel's new Retro-Action figures and I thought you guys might like to read it. He confirms that Mattel did indeeed retool the Big Jim body for the figure line, but that they are working to further seperate the two bodies to be different with improvements in Wave 2 as well as some tweaks they made internally on the original base. He's very candid and honest and helps give us a little more insight into the whole process so far. As you know, they are continuing to improve the body as time goes on as well. Check it out: Retro-Action & Big Jim: Part 2
  9. Just in time for Christmas it's Snoopy in Snowboarding gear! Check it out! Full review on the way, fresh from Santa's sleigh! Infinite Hollywood: Christmas Snoopy Figure Review Thanks for reading.
  10. Who's the biggest, baddest snow monster in all the land? Why it's the Bumble of course! Today I'm taking a look at the big bad unhumble Bumble in all his fuzzy glory. Check him out! Infinite Hollywood: Unhumble Bumble Figure Review Thanks for reading.
  11. With the holiday spirit still in mind, tonight I'm taking a look at the only guy who doesn't mind working Christmas day at the S-Mart, it's Holiday Ash! This exclusive figure from Palisades came out a few years ago and I'm checking him out today. Infinite Hollywood: Holiday Ash Figure Review Thanks for reading.
  12. Just in time for Christmas I review the new holiday gift pack of Smurfs. This comes with a sleigh and Santa "Papa" Smurf. Check it out! Infinite Hollywood: Holiday Smurfs Review Thanks for reading.
  13. I'm taking a look back at some of my favorite things about Christmas, especially quirky gifts I got as a kid. Which brings me to Robie the Robot Banker. Did anyone else have one of these guys as a kid? What an awesome bank. I found mine today in some rubble and decided to take him for a spin. Check out my mini review... Infinite Hollywood: Robie The Robot Banker Review Thanks for reading.
  14. New Doctor Who Classics Monsters announced today to begin shipping in January. We've got the pictures. Come check out the villains you'll love to have torment your Gallifrey heroes! This series will feature the following 5" tall characters, modelled accurately on famous villains from past episodes: * The Master - *the renegade Time Lord, and arch-enemy of the Doctor, as he appeared in The Deadly Assassin in 1976. He stands posed and ready to shoot all that defy him. * Ice Warrior - one of the Doctor’s oldest enemies, first battling against the Second Doctor back in the 1967 story The Ice Warriors. * Cyberman - as seen in the 1982 episode Earth Shock, the Cyberman is armed, and posed ready to attack. * The Morbius Creature - the brain of another renegade Time Lord resurrected into a ghoulish character that fought the Fourth Doctor, in The Brain of Morbius from 1976. * Voc Robot - from the classic 1977 story Robots of Death set on a distant planet where humans mine for precious metals using the Robots for labour. This Voc Robot's eyes glow red under a light. * Mummy with Canopic Jar - coming complete with urn accessories, the Mummy Robot was first seen in 1975’s Pyramid of Mars, with the Fourth Doctor. http://www.infinitehollywood.com/2009/12/new-doctor-who-classic-monsters-coming.html]Infinite Hollywood: New Doctor Who Classics Monsters[/url] Thanks for looking!
  15. The Christmas celebration is in full swing over at InfiniteHollywood.com and we're starting to look at a lot of the cool Christmas/Holiday figures that are out on the market right now. I'm a big fan of the Charlie Brown Christmas figures and I just got Franklin this past week. Franklin might be the token black character in Peanuts, but that won't stop him from having a awesome time with his fellow Schultz friends in this new figure. Check it! Infinite Hollywood: Peanuts - Charlie Brown Christmas Franklin Figure Review Thanks for reading.
  16. Although this would have made a great Halloween themed post, today I'm taking a look at not one, but two figures from the Doctor Who line. It's two of the three variants of Scarecrows. These evil goons might be afraid of a little fire, but they're sure to light a spark of interest from you. Check out the full review and find out the differences between the two. Infinite Hollywood: Scarecrow and Variant Figure Review Thanks for reading.
  17. Right, but it's supposed to be retro Mego, not retro Big Jim. Anyway the reuse is more in the molds and designs than actual parts.
  18. It took a little help from my friends, but I finally figured out why the "new" DC Retro Action Heroes looked familiar to me. These "new" figures use old parts, or at least retools of old parts. It seems as if Mattel is following the same formula that helped launch Masters of the Universe 20 years ago, use old Big Jim parts to make new toys. But it's baffling that they'd try to pull this in this day and age. Is Mattel really using Big Jim as the basis for their new Mattelgo line? You be the judge. Infinite Hollywood: DC Retro Action = Big Jim Thanks for reading.
  19. Remember that scene in the 1980's Flash Gordon movie when Klytus is killed and his eyes bug out. Have you ever wanted a figure of that? Well I've got you covered because this figure depicts that and is for you! Check it out! Infinite Hollywood: "Dead" Klytus Figure Review Thanks for reading.
  20. No problem. I had posted up a Dale review, but I guess it broke some rules or something, I'll repost it later.
  21. I got my Commander X figure in the mail yesterday and it was cold, so I decided to make a little figure comic with him. Click on the picture to see in full size. [/url] SEE THE REST plus behind the scenes stuff I made a little post about the comic over at my Blog: Infinite Hollywood: Commander X's Artic Adventure Comic Who says they don't make heroes like they used to?
  22. I'm still cranking out Flash Gordon reviews because, hey, somebody has to. Today I'm looking at Mr. James Bond himself, Timothy Dalton as Prince Barin. This figure from BifBangPow is the most articulated in the Flash Gordon line. While that isn't exactly saying much, it's got to count for something, right? Check out the full exclusive review over at InfiniteHollywood.com Infinite Hollywood: Prince Barin Figure Review Thanks for reading.
  23. I'm continuing my Flash Gordon week of celebration and figure reviews, this time with Klytus. Arguably the coolest character in the 1980's Flash Gordon film. He makes for an interesting figure and I have the full exclusive review up. Check it out! Infinite Hollywood: Klytus Figure Review Thanks for reading.
  24. A lot of people have been wondering what the Mego style "World's Greatest Super Heroes" card art would look like, especially since Mattel has changed the name. If you want a sneak peek and haven't seen it yet I have it posted up: Infinite Hollywood: DC Retro Action Figures Mego Style Plus it reveals Batman to be released!
  25. Earlier we took a look at Flash, but now we're looking at Ming the Merciless. It's time to see what BifBangPow has in store for the evil ruler of Mongo. I can tell you right now that the sculpting work is out of this world, but the articulation leaves a lot to be desired. Check out the full exclusive review as part of our Flash Gordon Celebration this week. Infinite Hollywood: Ming The Merciless Figure Review Thanks for reading.
