Review: Half-Shell Heroes Blast From the Past

Cowabunga, dudes! Welcome to another Nerdgasms toy review. Ok. I am fairly certain that if you read this site, you more than likely watch or have seen Nickelodeon’s TMNT cartoon. What we have in our grubby little hands is the new wave of the half-shell heroes: Blast to the Past! It’s the best of both […]

Review: Playmates TMNT Dimension X

Hello Party-People! Welcome to another Nerdgasms toy review. Ok. I am fairly certain that if you read this site, you more than likely watch or have seen Nickelodeon’s TMNT cartoon. And I’m even more positive that you have seen the action figures from Playmates for the cartoon series. What we have in our grubby little […]

Review: Ninja Control Leonardo

Welcome to another Nerdgasms.net toy review! Today we have the bodacious Ninja Control Leonardo! I’m going to start with this: This is the first Playmates TMNT toy that hasn’t been a home run. That said, it’s definitely a solid double off the wall. Let’s discuss. The Leonardo figure is pretty massive, at least 12″ tall. […]

Review: TMNT Power Sound FX weapon set

Welcome to another Nerdgasms.net toy review! Today we have a little gem called the TMNT Power Sound FX-Leo’s Combat Gear edition. As a kid growing up with the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, I wanted to be Raphael in the worst way. I had two little sticks I would use as sai and I would fight […]

Review: Half-Shell Heroes Fire Boat and Captain Raph

Welcome to another Nerdgasms.net toy review! I’m going to apologize in advance. My wife’s good camera is in the shop for repair, so I have to resort to the dreaded phone camera. Next review, the photos will be better. This review is for another in the Half-Shell Heroes line. This time its Raph and his […]

Review: Half-Shell Heroes Tiger Claw/Newtralizer/Police Leo

If you know anything about me, you know that I love TMNT. I read the comics, watch the cartoons, and collect Turtle toys. But I will be honest, I had never heard of the Half-Shell Heroes line. They are very similar to the Jedi Force Star Wars figures from Playskool…except it’s TMNT and by Playskool. […]

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 […]

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 […]
