New 52 Starfire Action Figure

Presenting Starfire Action Figure from the DC New 52 Red Hood and the Outlaws Series.

There are many sacred thing that DC has learned not to mess with over the years: Power Girl's Boob Window; Wonder Woman's pants; Star Sapphire's barely there uniform and of course, the sexually carefree usually naked form of Starfire. In the first issue of the New 52's Red Hood and the Outlaws, she asks Arsenal quite frankly "Do you want to have sex with me?" When Arsenal initially rejects the offer because he thinks she is Jason Todd's girl she replies "Absurd.  I am free to do what I want when I want..." Naturally Arsenal is more than happy to oblige. he asks her "So, is there anything I need to know about making love to a Tamarranean?" and she replies "Just that love has nothing to do with it."

Transformers Generations Skids

Presenting the Autobot Skids from the Transformers Generations toyline.

We chanced upon Skids at retail and frankly had no interest in buying him. He's Skids after all. In the greater scheme of things, he's nobody - no offense to Skids lovers out there - but he is Decepticon cannon fodder (Check out his yellow eyes below. He'll never be a Prime).

But everyone in the community seemed to want him so we had to find out why.

So we picked him up.

When we opened him, we were quite disappointed with the Transformers Generations Autobot Skids. Skids had beyond poor articulation, horrible feet, used gimmicks - though we had to admit the shoulder-mounted mini-missile launcher system is new.

SirToys STAR WARS Ultra Build Darth Vader KO

Presenting a knock-off version of SirToys' STAR WARS Ultra Build Darth Vader.

It's amazing what you can find when you get off the couch and walk through the toy black-markets. We found the Ultra Build Darth Vader while walking through St. Francis Square in Ortigas. He was just sitting there and we thought "That's cool"

A few days after shooting it, we chanced upon a review of the orginal SirToys Star Wars Ultra Build Darth Vader on YouTube via BensCollectibles. Ben referred to his Ultra Build Darth Vader as being a part of a cancelled line of Star Wars figures that included Boba Fett, C3-P0 and the Imperial Storm Trooper. JC Gold on the comments section of Ben's Youtube page said "This was a fan project on Lego Cuusoo ( now Lego Ideas) and Lego rejected the idea because they did not have the right to make Star Wars action figures. " So not only is this a knock-off, it's also illegal :)

Here's the thing, based upon Ben's review, this Knock-Off is actually better than the original SirToys Ultra Build.

HALO 4 Warthog

Presenting the HALO 4 UNSC Collector's Edition Warthog.

Okay! This is the M12 Light Reconnaissance Vehicle, Warthog (or simply Hog), as it appears in HALO: 4. Now we should point out that when this blog started a lifetime ago in 2010, we featured the HALO Reach Warthog. Till today, that Warthog remains one of our most valuable Dungeon displays.

But this puts it to shame.

Over the past ten years or so Bungie has really made it a point to refine the graphics that went into the HALO games, but what here is more than a polish or design enhancement.


This is a completely different vehicle.

TF4 AOE Scorn

Presenting the Transformers Age of Extinction TF4 AOE Deluxe Scorn.

TF4 AOE Scorn is a Bayformer Dinobot - meaning he's not based upon any G1 Dinobot and was made just for the movie.

We suppose Michael Bay found the idea of a Brontosaurus and a Stegosaurus too.... peaceful for the rampage he intended in Hongkong, and instead went for the dinosaur that killed the Tyrannosaurus Rex (Grimlock's Alt mode) in Jurassic Park 3 by snapping the T-Rex's neck: the Spinosaurus (We wonder if Bay is a fan of Jurassic Park).

A Spinosaurus supposedly rivals the size of a T-Rex so we're wondering if one day we'll see a Leader Class version of Scorn.
