  1. My childhood in a nutshell!! Sweet shot!
  2. Sweet shots, man! I dig the gritty lighting!
  3. Those look badass!! Love everything from the layers of greenery to the colors and posing! Great series of shots, my friend!
  4. Storm Collectibles is too sweet and has one hundred percent delivered on a long awaited Hollywood Hogan action figure! Several years ago collector's hearts were broken when Mattel was no longer able to produce a Hollywood Hogan action figure. This left a huge hole to fill in our collections for a six inch collectible of such an iconic figure such as Hulk Hogan. Storm Collectibles has delivered and gone above and beyond. You get many extras for your purchase. Storm Collectibles is known for producing a highly detailed product aimed at the adult collector. It has numerous points of articulation. Hollywood Hogan comes with a removable bandana, sunglasses, weight belt, cloth soft goods cut off shirt, cross necklace, red and white boas, a plastic stand, and two pairs of removable hands in both the open and closed fists. The colors pop and are extremely accurate to how I remember Hogan during his run as Hollywood in WCW. Even the "hotdog" colored skin tone was done precisely. The head scan has that angry grimace. It blows my mind how Storm was even able to have the wrinkles in his face and perfectly colored in his five o'clock shadow. The only minor downside to this figure would have to be the oversized wider fit boots and lack of articulation where the legs meet the boots as it hinders posing. Even with this minor flaw it doesn't discredit the phenomenal work that Storm Collectibles has given us. I would rate this figure a 9.5/10
  5. Thanks, dude! Love this figure. Crazy to think that it still holds up after all these years of being released!
  6. Thank you, bro! Always a big compliment when I can help jog someone's memory from back in the day!
  7. You keep upping your game with every shot! Love that middle shot especially. Great series of pics, man!
  8. Yeoh!! Mattel is back with the WWE Mattel Elite 63! 2018 has been the year of Mattel with them stepping up their game. I could not have asked for a better release of the King of Strong Style than this figure. Mattel has implemented the new TrueFX technology as shown on the front of the box. With TrueFX it allows a better resemblance of how the individual really looks like. Mattel did a good job before hand, but this new technology, it really gives them the advantage and edge over other comparable toy makers. Shinsuke has his one half of his head shaved with his cocky scowl that he is known for. Another bonus for collectors is the added pair of interchangeable hands that comes with this release. Nakamura can do his trademark spastic poses with the addition of the new hand mold. As if that wasn't enough, he comes with a cloth soft goods entrance jacket. The jacket itself feels like it's made of a pleather like material. The inner lining is some sort of cloth which feels premium. It feels like Mattel is doing the molded shirts and jackets less lately, so as a collector that is certainly welcomed as that severely limits the articulation. Shinsuke comes in elite form, which means that he has added articulation. The added articulation is at the head, shoulders, arms, wrists, torso, knee, ankle, thighs. I attempted to find fault with this figure, but this is as close to perfect as you are going to get. I can really appreciate Mattel's effort to keep evolving and keeping the collector in mind! 10/10
  9. Shared on my social media platform! This could go a long way for someone during the holidays! Thanks again guys for the generous giveaway! Best of luck to everyone!
  10. Wow! Really like those green mounds of smoke! Posing is super crisp and looks super realistic! Great shots...
  11. Thank you, bro! This is the best Nakamura figure hands down. The jacket is made out of a soft plastic, the inner lining has parts of actual cloth which is a nice touch. It doesn't feel cheap. Great fig by Mattel.
  12. Mattel is bringing the smackdown with the new WWE Mattel Smackdown Live Main Event Ring! Every collectors dream is here with all the bells and whistles of what an authentic scale ring should have! The ring measures in at 20X20 which is a great scale to recreate all the magic of your favorite WWE superstars! This includes numerous extras that normally are not included with a scale ring. You get a cloth ring skirt and mat, two chairs, one Smackdown Live themed break away table, light up posts and LED board, steps, and the modern day Maharaja Jinder Mahal in elite form! The ring is very easy to put together and the main pieces fit together like a puzzle. The posts have inserts where you plug them into the base of the ring. The light box clips directly underneath the base. The lighting is managed by pressing a single button on one of the posts. Having owned many of the past scale rings from different toy makers, this feels premium and does not feel cheap in hand. There are some drawbacks and isn't a perfect release. The ropes sit a bit low and make the figures look a bit out of scale when you take figure photography. The black bars that clip the ring mat into place are difficult to properly clip in and become loose if you apply too much pressure. The elite Jinder Mahal is an awesome bonus as it's the first elite version of Jinder as his current incarnation. The arms appear to have a new mold with veins popping out showing his vascularity. The torso is also awesome as its properly proportioned to his shredded physique. While this scale ring isn't perfect, this should not sway your decision to not purchase this awesome set! I would rate this a solid 9 out of 10. This is a solid effort by Mattel for keeping the collector in mind!
  13. Everybody has a price for the Million Dollar Man! This is the WWE Mattel Flashback Series basic Million Dollar Man Ted Dibiase action figure! You get the classic Ted Dibiase in a molded on suit. Dibiase was always known for his flashy persona and unique looks he wore inside the ring. The basic line is known for a scaled back version of the elite line. The basics have lesser points of articulation and not as extensive deco in terms of the outfits or accessories. But this should not sway you from considering to purchase the basic line as well. Mattel went all out for such a classic villain such as the Million Dollar Man! The color Mattel used on the green suit is very much how I recall Dibiase wearing this particular suit back during his run in the WWF. He has dollar signs on the front side of his jacket as well as a giant dollar sign on the backside of his suit jacket. He has silver lines going down each side of his suit trousers. While the posing and articulation is very much limited, this piece still looks fantastic and feels very solid in hand. My only minor complaint would be for Mattel to have a laughing head scan or have a face scan with a scowl rather than an expressionless look. Dibiase was certainly hated by the fans and had a larger than life personality, so thats the only thing I would modify. With this line of basics you get the chance to build a figure when you collect four separate figures. With the Million Dollar Man you get the torso. Once completed you can build a suited classic ring announcer Howard Finkel. This gives you a great incentive to purchase the remainder of figures to complete such a cool legend. I would have to give this basic Ted Dibiase a 8.5 out of 10. Im am only docking points for the weak face scan. But even with this drawback, you should still highly consider picking this up for your collection!
