    WWE Mattel Elite 63 Dusty Rhodes

    The American Dream is here with Mattel's WWE Elite series 63 Dusty Rhodes. 2018 was the year of Mattel, and 2019 is going strong with a revamp of the elite line. We get tons of extras with this regular elite line release. The body mold is the same that was used on the original Legends series Dusty Rhodes with polka dots. This has his classic old school blank trunks NWA attire. The body mold used here is ideal for Dusty Rhodes. He was known as the son of the plumber so he definitely had the common folk body. Mattel really chose this body mold accurately for him. This figure comes with a soft goods, black fabric t-shirt thats fully removable. It features his classic logo on the chest of the shirt. Also included are 2 pairs of hands. One set are closed fists, and the other are open hands. A removable hat. As if that wasn't enough, Mattel also included the big gold championship belt as well. This also comes with a pair of aviator style sunglasses, although im having a difficult time having the glasses stay on his head. A couple extra additional details are the green elbow pad which is a nice touch. And something that might get overlooked by some is Dusty's large birthmark on his belly region. For someone as iconic as Dusty Rhodes, this is a must have for any collection. A small nitpick would be if Mattel had used a new head scan rather than reuse the one used many years ago from the Legends release. Mattel has shown that they are listening to its consumers and have continued to step up their game. I would rate this a 9.5/10

  9. If I were a betting man, I’d bet you were guessing I would unleash holy hell on the ‘Titans’ Season Finale episode... But, y’know what? To my surprise, no! No rant was necessary! It was actually, dare I say, good. EDIT: So, I’m just a fair mite peeved... After having watched what I thought was the entirety of the ‘Titans’ season finale, and then doing a video discussion of it, I come to learn that it contained a post credits scene that I entirely missed out on, as I always click off as soon as the credits roll. The scene in question features Superboy and Krypto, apparently escaping from Cadmus. And boy-oh-boy, I really kinda wish I’d have seen it in the first place, so as to have been able to mention it in my finale review video.
  10. Review by: Cheryl Lee-Pow This week finally premieres the long-awaited DC Universe Aquaman, a standalone movie separate from the other members of the Justice League starring Jason Momoa as the titular lead Arthur Curry aka Aquaman. This movie continues from the Justice League movie but takes us to a different space and – well thank goodness for that. Justice League did not fare well with most critics or fans. It failed in many ways, and heavy hopes were placed on both Aquaman and Wonderwoman to help revitalize the DC Universe. DC hopes to steal some of the spotlight away from the blockbuster-breaking Marvel Universe. Does it have that capability? Honestly, not currently! Unless major changes are made in the DC Universe, it has a lot of catching up to do. Perhaps the studio should take notes from DC’s success on television. Aquaman did bring some changes for the better. The movie’s tone was more lighthearted than expected from DC, a universe where the sun never seems to come out and play. The underworld adventures of Aquaman reminds us of that feeling we had when we first saw James Cameron’s Avatar. An awe-inspiring world never seen before that makes you want to believe Atlantis is truly real. As a true comic fan since I was a teenager, Arthur Curry was usually depicted as the all powerful king of the seas, a know-it-all stick-in-the-mud. The character was always very serious in his job as ruler of all things below land. This version of Aquaman is very much different. We have a playful Arthur Curry who initially is unsure of himself. Jason Momoa’s style of acting gives Aquaman a more lighthearted version of Arthur Curry that you can fall in love with. Audiences that fell for the smoldering Khal Drogo from Game of Thrones with surely like this side of Momoa. He has come a long way from his days on Stargate: Atlantis when he was half the size he is now but still with the famous long hair. To the awkwardness of Conan to his awakening as Khal Drogo in Game of Thrones. I may not be a die hard fan but Momoa earned my respect. I look forward to watching his career progress – almost a mirror image to “The Rock”, Dwayne Johnson. The rest of cast balances and rounds out the movie. When Nicole Kidman plays Atlanna, mother of Arthur and Orm, one can’t help but be interested. Amber Heard as Mera is fun and, with her own powers wielding water, just as interesting as Aquaman. As her character falls in love with Curry more and more, so does the audience and we appreciate her ability to keep him balanced. No matter where William Dafoe ends up – as the bad guy in Spiderman or a good guy - he always brings something special to the table. The rest of the cast does an okay job adding to Aquaman’s history and plot. I personally would have liked a little more intensity from Patrick Wilson’s King Orm and Yahya Abdul Mateen’s Black Manta. In the comics Black Manta has an important role in molding Aquaman into the King of the Seas. We will see how that pans out. The storyline is not that hard to figure out with the rather obvious treachery and the “hidden” secrets. But it is a fun ride to watch the Under Sea world unfold and how expansive it is. I did enjoy picking at some of the obvious logic flaws and inconsistencies. - I guess decompression sickness isn’t a factor for Atlanteans as they move from the depths of the oceans to airplanes and deserts. - No matter how good the CGI is, one flare won’t protect you from that many creatures. - Swimming mach-10 under the oceans while fighting the villain and he never loses his comfy linen pants. Can I have that tailor? - Does he ever eat? We know he likes to drink – his tolerance for alcohol is amazing, but we never see him eat anything. Again, the frequent lighthearted moments are different from the darkness the DC Universe usually is known for. The video game reference to Arthur Curry vs. King Orm did give us a giggle. Is Aquaman strong enough to keep the DC Universe going? As a solo title, the movie definitely stands up. But to save the Universe, DC needs more help than Wonder Woman and Aquaman can offer.
  11. Herein discussing episode 9 of the DC Universe ‘Titans’ series, entitled, ‘Hank and Dawn’... And man, when an episode of this show is written this good, it begs the question, why isn’t the rest of the series? Especially as it relates to the alleged main cast of characters. The origins of Hawk and Dove, though? Damn, that was some — surprisingly — good stuff.

    WWE Mattel Elite Bob Backlund

    Mattel is back with another awesome figure! This is Bob Backlund from his run in the WWF as the psychotic man that didn't have control once he snapped! The figure has extras upon extras! 2018 has been the year of Mattel. Mattel had been including many plastic mold shirts, plastic robes, and many accessories that quite frankly didn't make a lot of sense. But that seems like a thing of the past. With this release we get a fabric soft goods robe with white trim. A white towel, two extra removable hands, and a winged eagle championship belt. Im in awe of everything about this figure, from the sculpted buzz cut, to his crazy blank stare on his facial scan. Backlund is accurately scaled, as he wasn't very tall in real life. The figure has numerous point of articulation. You can move the head, waist, shoulders, arms, wrists, legs, ankles, knees, and torso. My only extremely minor nitpick would have to be on the winged eagle title having the black globe instead of the traditional blue accent on the globe. I don't recall the title ever having the black accent. But nevertheless, that shouldn't stop you from considering picking up this gem! I have only had it for a few days, and its already front and center in my action figure collection. I would give this figure release a 9.5/10

  14. The latest episode of ‘Titans’ — and more pointedly, the Season Finale Trailer — made me angry... Like, angrier than I’ve been in a while. So, this week’s discussion is very much a rant, instead of a full on review. Posted with a thorough Language Warning.

  16. Hasbro adds another Lando to their 6” Black Series line with this new Skiff Guard Disguise version from Return Of The Jedi. The packaging of course is the same as we’ve seen with the other figures in the line with the black window-box and red boarder. This figure is number 76 in the series and you get the multi-lingual bio on the back. For accessories you get a removable mask and one of those bladed staff weapons often saw Jabba’s men use in Return of the Jedi. The staff features a nice metalic looking finish and the mask seems pretty movie accurate. I will say the face cover seems a little small as you can clearly make out the face even when it’s on the figures head. The headsculpt on this figure is really nice looking even more like Billy Dee Williams than the one on the Empire Strikes Back version which wasn’t to bad in it’s own right. The outfit on the rest of the figure is also pretty movie accurate and the paint applications are solid with some nice wash on the brown portions to make it look like leather. The shoulder pads are made of a rubber material so they don’t limit the movement of the arms and the metalic silver chestplate is sculpted on the figure. You get two grip hands so he can hold the staff on either side. Articulation is the same as we’ve seen with previous figures with single hinged elbows and double hinged knees. No ab-crunch but you do get a waist swivel. While I would have rather seen Hasbro give us Lando in his General outfit from Return of the Jedi, I would say this is a solid figure overall and worth adding to the collection, especially if you are a Lando fan. This figure is available now and can be purchased at BigBadToyStore.com. Let us know what you think about it in the COMMENTS SECTION.

    Storm Collectibles Hollywood Hogan

    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
  20. Today I take a look at Mattel's new wave of 6" DC Multiverse figures which includes Rebirth Wonder Woman, Vixen, The Ray and Gotham By Gaslight Batman. The Collect-And-Connect for this wave is the Rebirth Lex Luthor figure. You can buy these figures from Megalopolis.Toys. Check out images for these figures below in our GALLERY and let us know what you think about them in the COMMENTS SECTION.
  21. The latest clone based character to join Hasbro's 6" Black Series line shares many similar characteristics in both the actual figure and in character background with that of Captain Rex. A popular character from the cartoons as opposed to movies this Clone Commander comes packaged in the same style as we see with all the Black Series line featuring the black and red window-box with the multi-lingual bio on the back. Since this figure is an exclusive there is no numbering on the side. The figure is a multi-store exclusive for Disney Store, Barnes & Noble, and Gamestop. For accessories you get two blaster pistols similar to the ones that came with the Rex figure and a removable helmet. The pistols will fit in working gun holsters found at the waist of the figure, again just like we saw with the Rex figure and the helmet has an articulated view finder which is a throwback to the Mandalorian armor. For the figure itself, I really like the headsculpt. One of the best Clone headsculpts Hasbro has done to date and the battle scare over the right eye looks nice. The paint apps are solid as well featuring some nice looking 5 o'clock shadow and the standard black clone hair. The Helmet which is made from a rubber material has some nice detailing as well with the wolf like markings and scratch marks that tells you Wolffe has definitely seen some action. The helmet is a tight fit on the head so I do recommend caution when taking it off and putting it back on. I worry that over time it might cause paint scratching on the head. The body appears to be a re-use of the one used on Rex with some slight modifications. You have what I think is a communication antenna on the left shoulder which is made from a thin rubber like material which bends easily. You have the standard clone armor shoulder pads with nice Wolf like markings that are cleanly painted on the figure. The wolf head on the right shoulder pad looks especially nice. The belt is the same one used on the Rex figure and you also have the soft-goods skirt like pieces which on wolf is solid black with a liter black trim. Wolffe's does seem a little shorter than the one featured on Rex.The legs, arms and hands all all re-used from the Rex figure and you have the white armor with a glossy looking grey throughout the figure which looks good. You also have dirt or scratch marks found throughout the figure, most noticeable on the fron torso section. On the figures back you have the same kind of square design with the holes like seen with Rex. Articulation is the same as the Rex figure which features both double-jointed elbows and knees. You have hinges on the hands and a torso joint that allows you to rotate there with a little bit of back and forth motion. The ankle joints are tight on this one but you do have the standard pivot motion. While Wolffe uses many of the same parts as Rex, the figure still comes off looking fairly unique which is nice. The background story on Wolffe is a pretty cool one as he is one of the Clones who managed to life into older age and was featured not only in the Clone Wars cartoon, but in the Rebels one as well. If you have the Black Series Captain Rex or just like Clones I think this one is a must have to add to your collection. Look for it on shelves now. Check out more images for the figure below and let us know what you think about it in the COMMENTS SECTION.
  22. In a season thus far that I’ve had little to really complain about, overall, this episode struck a cord with me... It is hands down the first that has ever brought me to very nearly wanting to turn it off. To hear why that is, please check out the video below! And be sure to share what you thought of the episode, as well!
  23. Much as I anticipated, whenever they bring in a background DC Comics character, (background in that, they’re not part of the main cast), that character is served so much better than the titular Titans... As such, Donna Troy was an absolute delight, in this episode. To hear more of my thoughts about it, please check out the video — and be sure to share your thoughts on it below!
  24. Herein discussing the overly monochromatic, dark and edgy seventh episode of the DC Universe ‘Titans’ series, which gets pretty damned abysmal, if I do say so myself. But, it is what it is. Take a look — and be sure to share your thoughts on the episode and series as a whole!

    WWE Mattel Elite 63 Shinsuke Nakamura

    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
