Review: 12″ Skeletor (Mattel)

If you were to ask your average 30-something-year old on the street to name the top 5 bad guys from 80s popular culture, the chances are that in there somewhere will be Skeletor, and rightfully so! Every week this poor guy would be plotting to overthrow the Masters of the Universe and steal the secrets […]

Spotlight Ink: Lady Killer

Writer:Joëlle Jones, Jamie S. Rich Artist:Joëlle Jones Colorist:Laura Allred Cover Artist:Joëlle Jones “Josie Schuller is a picture-perfect homemaker, wife, and mother—but she’s also a ruthless, efficient killer for hire! A brand-new original comedy series that combines the wholesome imagery of early 1960s domestic bliss with a tightening web of murder, paranoia, and cold-blooded survival.” Lady […]

Review: Entrapta from Masters of the Universe Classics

Under the microscope today is the deadly Horde beauty…Entrapta! Now I’m not usually one who calls himself a PoP fan, but the mini subscription came up earlier this year, and I decided to be all in, and I’m glad I did. After the slightly disappointing face sculpt of Double (trouble) Mischief, this figure knocked the […]

Review: Big Hero 6 toys from Bandai

Until I opened this box, I had never heard of Big Hero 6. But there it was, a giant box from Bandai. So after a quick Google search, I come to find it’s the new Disney film. And it looks really fantastic. But I digress. Like I said, the first item is the Baymax mask […]

Review: Rio Blast (Club Eternia)

I’m a bit delayed on this, but I wanted to talk about the recent offering from Mattel’s Masters of the Universe Classics line: RIO BLAST!! Character choice: Rio Blast seems to be a polarizing character among He-Fans and She-Ravers.  Some love him, some absolutey despise him,  There doesn’t seem to be a lot of “in […]

review: Horrorstör

“Something strange is happening at the Orsk furniture superstore in Columbus, Ohio. Every morning, employees arrive to find broken Kjerring wardrobes, shattered Brooka glassware, and vandalized Liripip sofa beds clearly, someone or something is up to no good.” After weeks of odd occurrences and vandalism in the store, the uptight store manager convinces his most loyal […]

Review: Intergalactic Skeletor (MOTUC)

I’m a bit delayed on this, but I wanted to talk about the recent offering from Mattel’s Masters of the Universe Classics line: Intergalactic Skeletor. Character choice: He’s an A-level character from New Adventures, so you absolutely have to have him. And, theoretically, if you are reserving space to complete the vintage line by 2015, […]

Review: Madame Razz & Broom (MOTUC)

I’m a bit delayed on this, but I wanted to talk about the recent offering from Mattel’s Masters of the Universe Classics line: Madame Razz and her sidekick Broom. Character choice: Based on message board fans, it seems this duo was really desired. For me, I could have lived my life perfectly fine without ever […]

Spotlight Ink: Howard Lovecraft and the Three Kingdoms

This collection from Arcana isn’t new material.  Rather it is the collection, or trilogy if you will, of all three Howard books; Howard Lovecraft and the Frozen Kingdom, Howard Lovecraft and the Undersea Kingdom and Howard Lovecraft and the Kingdom of Madness.  For those not aware of the premise, the Howard series is the brain child […]

Toy Review: Bandai Sprukits

I had heard the buzz about the sprukits from Bandai at the last Toy Fair.  It seemed like a neat idea, but nothing more than that until late last week when Bandai sent over some samples.  And I will start the review by saying THESE THINGS ARE FRIGGIN COOL!!  Ok, I got that out of […]
